For My Awesome Son...
♥ ♥

My Personal Definition of Conservatism...

♥ Born and raised in ❀Southern Mississippi, and have strong ties to ⚜Louisiana. I'm fortunate to have family there, here in ✯Texas, ✜Arizona and of course other places. I've lived in Texas for 27 years. In south Texas for 16 years. I really try to hold my humility closely at all times. Staying humble for God and myself is a top priority for me personally...along with GOD, Family, Friends and Country. My relationship with God is my own. I tend to surround myself with like-minded people. I've always been a pretty grounded person overall, although I am just a work in progress and always will be I suppose. I was raised to use common sense, logic, and to be self sufficient. That, I will always be grateful to not just my parents but my whole family overall. I love my family and friends. Especially my 20 year old son. He's the best! I'm so blessed to have such a funny, amazing, smart, level headed and respectful son, as I have in him. = )

♛ I'm a very loyal friend. I'm easy going most of the time (especially when I'm getting my way) ha! ; )) Truthfully... I'm usually a pretty laid back and content person no matter what life throws at me, I try to take it in stride. What other choice do we have....I mean really... what cha' gon do? I'm a true blue, warm blooded, romantic at heart. I've always been my own original self, even BEFORE SodaHead... I Know what I know, I Like what I like and I Love who I love. I'm very passionate and compassionate. No one can steal my joy and I will not allow another person to try and extinguish my joy or my originality. My happiness comes from within. I trust God completely and with all my heart. I respect the fact that we don't all believe the same way but ONLY 'to a certain point!' I don't "understand" the liberal mind, nor do I want too.

★ I'm a Constitutional Conservative Tea Party Lovin' Christian. I was raised to have respect for the Law and our Military. My son enjoys his work and his dream is to be a Police Officer or in Law Enforcement of some kind. My Beloved Parents were devoted members of the Catholic Church. My Daddy was of ❂Cherokee and British decent and a U.S. Army Veteran. He was a member of the Knights of Columbus and the American Legion. He had his own successful business for 30+ years before having to retire due to health issues. My Mother was of ⚜French and British decent and was a Homemaker and Secretary for our Daddy's business all those years. She also held other occupations during that time as well. After our Daddy's retirement, she started teaching Religion at the Catholic School through the Church from which my family attends. She also officiated Spanish Mass. She had many hobbies and also loved to sew and research genealogy. She was active in volunteer work in numerous organizations and church, including the Pregnancy Crisis Center in the local community. My Grandfather was in the U.S. Army, also a Veteran and fought in World War ll and the Korean War where he was wounded. My Brother is also a Veteran of the U.S. Army and served in Desert Storm. My Brother-In-Law is a U.S. Air Force Veteran as well. I do NOT take credit for their accomplishments as some do of their family members. But I am Thankful and Appreciative for everything that was instilled in me, as I grew up in a hard working family. We were all taught a sense of duty and pride for our Community and Country and to Volunteer and donate to worthy causes. We were taught these things and all us kids have instilled those same values in our own children. I couldn't be prouder of my family. My Internet Stalker recently said about me >>"Sadly, many Americans...even those who proclaim to be "patriots" have never given ANYTHING to better this country, or their own lives. They are lifelong, self imposed "victims" of their circumstance. Staying free, and freeing oneself of servitude, takes hard work, determination, and perseverance. It's a shame that some who think they possess these traits, just don't."<< ...JUST WOW!!! You are one Presumptuous old bitty that knows NOTHING of what I've given or what I do, think or feel. And if you did know, you would curl up and hide in a hole from shame for having said such a fool thing.

.......................... ♥ღϠ₡ღ♥♥ ... ABOUT ME ... ♥♥ღϠ₡ღ♥ .....................

✲ ✿ I'm like a fine wine, I get better with age. I'm seasoned with a full bodied zest. Seasoned because I have invisible and visible scars I didn't deserve. Seasoned because I've lost important people that will forever be in my heart. Seasoned because I didn't let events in my life turn me bitter. Instead those scars made me a better version of who I was... I'm the sweetest of the sugars and the spiciest of the spices. Whatever I do or don't do.... I do it with style and finesse, baby. I don't see myself as damaged goods any more. I've been emulsified, caramelized and released... like a full bodied cup of coffee. Hot to the lips... savory and favorable to the palate. I've only had the experience of one man and he's not what I've deserved. A Capricorn Woman requires better than that, and that's what I intend on having. One step at a time. Just breathe... Just stop and close my eyes and breathe in slow and deep. Breathe in the sweet scent of the flower... and blow out the candles with the soft breath of butterfly wings. God didn't put me here to be unhappy. God put me here to Shine. I crave quality in all things, even if I have very little materially... I will have quality in what I do have. Quality family, friends, spirituality and contentment. I'm committed to a blissful life thats gonna wrap it's arms around me... dance, dip and sway me. I've overcome adversity and I've more to overcome, but I am "me" and that's a definite sign that I'm God's Shining Star. Everyone of my friends that've read what I've said about myself, should remember this about YOU just as well, because it's true of all of us. ツ ...We're gonna be okay ... We are all Shining Stars and Children of God. We Shine from the inner core of our Souls and because God placed that Shine inside us... You can Trust it, be Bold and Dream Big because God has a Divine plan for our lives.
Wake up everyday with a smile no matter what, and say Thank You God... for this is Just the Beginning of My Life. Thank You God for Blessing Me and Those I Love and yet to Love ...with a Faithful Relationship with YOU and Excellent Health, Joy, Protection and Prosperity, In Jesus Name, Amen.

I was hoping and praying, ALL Conservative minded people would've got on the same page before 2012. We shot ourselves in the foot when election time rolled around. Even if I didn't like the last Conservative standing when that time came... and I did....they were gettin' my vote. Anyone is better than the Socialist Regime we have now! I'm not politically correct nor do I wish to be. For some reason... it seems to be in vogue for the liberal progressive left to rip apart anyone that is Christian, Conservative, Republican, Patriotic and Sensible. Then they cry when we stand up to them. Having our country destroyed, abuse of any kind whether it be towards innocent children and/or animals, makes my claws come out!

♛ I made the decision many years ago to change the negatives in my life into positives. For my own well being and for those around me. It's called Self Preservation. I do what I can, when I can, to better my life, and I do it with a cool head. I believe, if you don't know what to do, don't do anything at that very moment. Let the Holy Spirit lead you. It's not that you're not doing anything and it's not that you won't ever do anything at all... It's that you do what has to be done in the right timing. I will never let the judgment of others sway what's right for me, as they do not know details of my life. They are clueless. Even my closest friends on here do not know every detail about me. Now, if some "know it all" wants to point their gnarly finger at me and stick their nose into my life and judge me, I will surely put them in their place. And since they think they can do it so much better than me, I will be glad to hand over all my expenses to them and let them put a roof over my head. Hmmmm ......didn't think so. So maybe it's time for some people to get concerned about their own warped lives.
⚜ I think of myself as a simple, no-nonsense kind of girl. I can really take a few punches and dish it back 10 fold. Life can be hard at times. It's the people that kick me when I'm down that I have a real problem with. I will chew them up and spit them out. The way I see it, If they're so brazen as to think they can over step my boundaries and judge me, then they better not say one blessed thing when I defend myself or my child.
Being a good person is important to me, but I am also human.
So, mess with me ...at your own risk, because I bite back!
I don't post Biblical verses on my profile to impress others. I actually do it because it makes ME feel good to surround myself with Inspiration and Gods Word. I do that in every area of my life. If anyone has a problem with that, then that is on them. Those kind of people are always welcomed to leave my profile any ole time they want... and stay off. There's to many Mrs. Kravitz's and Harriet Olsen's on here.

A Very Dear Friend, recently reminded me to...
"Always remember to forget
The friends that proved untrue.
But never forget to remember
Those that have stuck by you"

† Psalm 27:
1* The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom do I fear? The LORD is my life's refuge; of whom am I afraid?
2* When evildoers come at me to devour my flesh, These my enemies and foes themselves stumble and fall.
3* Though an army encamp against me, my heart does not fear; Though war be waged against me, even then do I trust.
4* One thing I ask of the LORD; this I seek: To dwell in the LORD'S house all the days of my life, To gaze on the LORD'S beauty, to visit his temple.
5* For God will hide me in his shelter in time of trouble, Will conceal me in the cover of his tent; and set me high upon a rock.
6* Even now my head is held high above my enemies on every side! I will offer in his tent sacrifices with shouts of joy; I will sing and chant praise to the LORD.
7* Hear my voice, LORD, when I call; have mercy on me and answer me.

8* "Come," says my heart, "seek God's face"; your face, LORD, do I seek!
9* Do not hide your face from me; do not repel your servant in anger. You are my help; do not cast me off; do not forsake me, God my savior!
10* Even if my father and mother forsake me, the LORD will take me in.
11* LORD, show me your way; lead me on a level path because of my enemies.
12* Do not abandon me to the will of my foes; malicious and lying witnesses have risen against me.
13* But I believe I shall enjoy the LORD'S goodness in the land of the living.
14* Wait for the LORD, take courage; be stouthearted, wait for the LORD!


goodness land living 14 wait lord courage stouthearted wait lord

remember it is not you they despise but, who is in you!

If you were of the world, the world would love you as its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.

john 15:19

~ rushsupporter

A Reminder from Gods Word AND my Mom, FOR My Mom, Me and My Son
No weapon formed against me shall prosper. I put on the whole Armor of God. I Can Do All Things Through Christ Who Strengthens Me. Everything's gonna be alright. I Will Walk with Confidence. Because I have the Knowledge that God Guides me, God Walks with me. I Trust Him Fully. I am In The Palm of Gods Hand, Always!


† The bible tells us not to argue with a fool. And it also says don't cast your pearls among swine. These people are lost and they are deceptors. The devil works through them. But I have no worries, for I am in the Palm of Gods Hand. I'm protected by the Most High. I'm surrounded by Angels. I'm surrounded and protected by Armored Angels. I am Protected by the Armor of God, the Shield of Faith, the Belt of Truth, the Breastplate of Righteousness, the Helmet of Salvation, the Gospel of Peace, the Sword of the Spirit. Not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but one that comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God, based on faith. Righteousness will be my Belt and Faithfulness the Sash round my waist. Fashion a Breastpiece for making decisions... Make it like the ephod....So Father, give your servant a discerning heart to distinguish between right and wrong. I prepare my shields, both large and small, and march out for battle! Harness the horses, mount the steeds! Take your position with helmets on! Polish your spears, put on your armour! Submit therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. These are Your Words God. I am being Bold, Faithful and Expectant in Your Promises my Father. Amen! ツ

* If you tell the truth you don't have to remember anything.
* Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.

* Love looks through a telescope; envy, through a microscope.
~ Josh Billings

* Jealousy in romance is like salt in food. A little can enhance the savor, but too much can spoil the pleasure and, under certain circumstances, can be life-threatening.
* People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
~ Maya Angelou

~ Joan Didion

* Jealousy is a disease, love is a healthy condition. The immature mind often mistakes one for the other, or assumes that the greater the love, the greater the jealousy -- in fact, they're almost incompatible; one emotion hardly leaves room for the other. Both at once can produce unbearable turmoil...

~ William Hazlitt

* Jealousy is an awkward homage which inferiority renders to merit.
~ Mme. de Puixieux

* Anger and jealousy can no more bear to lose sight of their objects than love.
~ George Eliot

* Insecurity is the reason why Backstabbers are born.

* Backstabbers will almost always seek to gain your trust, and this usually involves some form or flattery on their part.

* Backstabbers are passive-aggressive. Confrontation to a backstabber is like sunlight to a vampire. So when they're threatened, they lash out sneakily.

* To the one who chose to stab me in the back, stay fake. You always were!

* Two faced backstabbers should be thrown to the dogs.


* I'm Often Imitated... But NEVER Duplicated.

* Don't hate what you can't imitate....

* What goes around comes around. That's what people say. so to my pervy, phoney, lying, copying, stalker, for all the pain you caused me and others, and all that you still try to cause... it'll come back to you someday.

* Haters only hate the things that they can't get and the people they can't be.

* Keep looking my way... My head is held high! You wanna bring me down? I dare you to try!

* I don't mind the hate... do what you do cuz I'm loving my life and apparently so do you.

* Love me or hate me.... Either way I'm on your mind.

* Don't hate me because I'm loyal, smart and sweet! ...Hate cuz you can't compete.

* Life’s tough, but it's tougher when you are stupid.
John Wayne

* Self-centered and prideful she tends to mistake her friends for admirers. She uses other people’s creative energy to advance her own purposes.. and will give very little of herself but her own projected ego.

* Jealousy is the dragon in paradise; the hell of heaven; and the most bitter of the emotions because associated with the sweetest.
~ A.R. Orage

* As iron is eaten by rust, so are the envious consumed by envy.
~ Antisthenes

* In this fight I have the most intolerant and vindictive enemy I have ever met and I have the largest majority on my side I have ever had and I am discussing the greatest issue I have ever discussed.
~ William Jennings Bryan

* If malice or envy were tangible and had a shape, it would be the shape of a boomerang.
~ Charley Reese

~ Anne Frank

* He uses his folly like a stalking-horse, and under the presentation of that he shoots his wit.
~ William Shakespeare

And makes me poorer indeed.
~ William Shakespeare

    LUKE 2:

    8 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.

    9 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

    10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

    11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

    12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

    13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,

    14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

    15 And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.

    16 And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger.

    17 And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child.
