It's a boy!

Just after I sobbed like a big wuss and told my husband, 'Never again!" The world was made brighter for me!

Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness for All

http://chuckbaldwinlive.com/home/archives/5209

I absolutely agree. I am saddened that while many fight for the rights of the unborn, the rights of foreign peoples is negotiable.  From a christian perspective it is unfathomable.  Are not all men created in the image of the living god?  Will their blood cry out to Him any less?

NOBAMNEY!

I recently clearly stated the issues I had with Romney at http://blog.lasonador.com/2012/10/never-compromise-part-ii.html and have yet to hear any evidenced argument against a single point. Instead I have been unfriended, insulted, and called too 'pious,' too 'spiritual,' and 'self righteous.'
Jesus said, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind." Matthew 22:37 So how much is tooooooo much love for the Lord?

I would delight to support and vote for a God-fearing man. One who watched over our country like Romans 13 says, "For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil." Do either of these candidates live up to THAT scripture?

Many are voting based on one issue: abortion. I however, do not believe abortion is the only stake in this election. Some have blatantly accused people of the sin of killing babies by not supporting Romney.
But Ezekiel 18:20 says, "The soul who sins shall die. The son shall not bear the guilt of the father, nor the father bear the guilt of the son. The righteousness of the righteous shall be upon himself, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon himself."
You cannot hold someone responsible for something that they took NO part in.

But what of those that did take part? What if they voted for someone who is or will be guilty of....

Destroying the whole world's food supply? Romney has been working on PR and lobbying for Monsanto for many years. Worldwide crop failures, farmers and their communities suddenly suffering serious health issues, and the poisoning of the bees, who pollinate more than 1/3 of the world's crops.

Killing 2 terrorists for every 98 innocent civilians? http://www.examiner.com/article/cia-obama-romney-seek-expansion-of-drone-war?cid=rss

Disarming American citizens? Romney believes in gun control and would consider additional measures regarding the 'lethality' of weapons.

Destroying our Constitutional Rights? Romney supports the NDAA and 'would have signed it'. This allows government officials to arrest anyone without charges and never give them a trial.

I cannot vote for someone whom I think is not a good person just because someone else thinks he might make one good choice among a myriad of wrongs.

Ephesians 5:11
And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them.



Consider this also....

If our country falls under a tyrannical, militarized government, no baby will be safe, nor any mother, father, sister, or brother.  We will all be crushed under that iron boot.

Goat babies!!!!

Watch "Babies!" on YouTube

For my son's sixth birthday he asked for a mama and baby goat.  My husband and I got him a goat doe (female) and got her bred.

Today she had her babies, two boys.  Cute!!!!!!

My son said, "I am so happy.  Today I got my joy.  And mama, when you have your baby, you will get your joy."

God, I love that little sweet boy.

Sensing Anger - Written May 2001


SENSING ANGER

I am listening to her words
As they tumble thoughtlessly from her lips
And am reminded of their true origin
And lies
I remember that she is not alone in her misguided path
And I am Angered

Oh, how many souls are lost and never found
Falling for the speeches given them by men
Oh, how many maybes were turned into no's
In that eternal Book of Life
And Death

Do they realize that they are walking down a path
With only one gate at the end
Having closed the pearls long ago
Do they realize that in tow
They are dragging many children
Who can no longer think for themselves
Or are willing to search

Oh, I know
That the truth is out there and no man is responsible
For his brother
But I also know
The consequence of a brother

And as I listen to her lies
That she believes in because
She knows nothing else
I am Angered

~NO~

I will not stand for lies any longer
And turning to face her
I remember that I love this woman so much
So much that it aches to think I could lose her
Forever is a long time little one

Setting the line
Against the walls they have built in her heart
Breaking open gates
That wound her, more than I can ever know
I know that the Truth must be told

For the Lies lead only to Death

Loss.....


The worst of my troubles right now.... I can't find my camera. I pray and pray that I find it.

All the while, one of my best friend's 7 children are being put up for adoption next month, leaving her arms empty and her heart irreversibly broken.

I feel... helpless. I pray for her and for her babies.  I have read their court papers that criminalize loving motherhood and scriptural worship.  I blog about it, talk about it, cry about it.

I might never find my camera again....

But I do find that 'loss' is a much bigger word than we realize.

Wasted Vote? I Think Not

Since I was insulted for not voting for Romney and then told NOT to post any more comments in that forum.....

The argument that Romney is lying here, http://www.katu.com/news/national/Romney-promises-no-abortion-legislation-173494601.html?m=y&smobile=y to gain political favor with his constituents and decrease trouble with the opposing party does NOT win my heart. You assume he is lying in your favor and feel better about that? I could equally argue that he is lying and hiding his favor for abortion, citing his past voting and financial records. "A lying tongue hates those who are crushed by it, And a flattering mouth works ruin." Proverbs 26:28. "The truthful lip shall be established forever, But a lying tongue is but for a moment." Proverbs 12:19. "What is desired in a man is kindness, And a poor man is better than a liar." Proverbs 19:22. "You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it." John 8:44.
Unfortunately forced sterilization in our country has a LONG history and did not start, and will not end with Obama. Despite Republican controlled leadership numerous times through our country's history this continues.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compulsory_sterilization#United_States
http://www.sterilizationvictims.nc.gov/

I do see that forced abortions are being funded by the US monies to the UN, which has been argued against and was stopped temporarily by Bush. But wouldn't any act of Romney against this legislation be against his previously quoted words, "There's no legislation with regards to abortion that I'm familiar with that would become part of my agenda." I can't count on his action in the right direction.
http://www.thenewamerican.com/world-news/asia/item/12049-un-slammed-for-its-forced-abortions-in-china-using-us-funds

You lament that the 'church' is fragmented politically. Do you really believe that the answer is for the church to vote for the 'lesser of two evils'? "Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness;" Isaiah 5:20. "Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, 'I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.'" John 8:12. "I have come as a light into the world, that whoever believes in Me should not abide in darkness." John 12:46. "Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness?" 2 Corinthians 6:14.

I have heard MANY christians admit that this is what they are doing, lament it, but they don't know what else to do. Shouldn't the best choice for a christian be to stand up for RIGHT no matter the cost? Aren't we called to be a light that brightens the whole world? "You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden." Matthew 5:14.

You claim your goal is to vote Obama out of office. Do you not realize that he is but a figurehead of a system that is set out to destroy the american people? "For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places." Ephesians 6:12.

This IS a spiritual battle. To approach it otherwise is not the answer. "For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth), finding out what is acceptable to the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret. But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light. Therefore He says:
"Awake, you who sleep,
Arise from the dead,
And Christ will give you light."
Walk in Wisdom
See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil." Ephesians 5:8-16.

You fear that any vote that does not go to Romney will ensure that Obama is again chosen as president. do you truly believe that this is the WORST possible outcome of this election? "And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell." Matthew 10:28

Since my vote will change NOTHING in the direction this country is taking (romney and obama agree on all expanses of govt and removal of america rights [see point by point at http://blog.lasonador.com/2012/10/never-compromise-part-ii.html]) my only ethical choice is to use my vote as a statement only. I STATE.....

I do not support you prideful, lying, blood shedding, wicked hearted men.
"These six things the Lord hates,
Yes, seven are an abomination to Him:
A proud look,
A lying tongue,
Hands that shed innocent blood,
A heart that devises wicked plans,
Feet that are swift in running to evil,
A false witness who speaks lies,
And one who sows discord among brethren."
Proverbs 6:16-19.

Gardening for the 'Young' Homestead


My garden this year pretty sad. I have no pictures because..... I haven't the heart to take ANY photos.  Waiting for the rainy season to end, followed by a short, cool, cloudy morninged summer, in a newly tilled, garden with barely an inch of top soil equals the slowest growing little plants you have EVER seen.

On top of other 'problems' on the farm I was very discouraged.  I remembered my plantings in the community garden back in town. Well composted and manured each spring, the ground was so fertile.  I dreamt the lord blessed my plots and every seed that fell to the ground flourished before my eyes.  It was a powerful and absolutely beautiful vision. 

The contrast was painful.  Here we are, nearly thru September and we have eaten ALL of our potato harvest in one meal, ALL of our peas in another meal, and ALL of our beans as a few small fresh snacks.  All two of our tomatoes that neared a color other than green were eaten by the chickens, and the two zucchinis that were almost 4 inches long have disappeared as well.  My onion plantings are barely larger than when I planted the sets to begin with. 

So with frustration and anger, all rooted in my pain of failing miserably in this important aspect of homesteading..... I prayed.  And prayed.   And prayed.  Days and weeks passed. 

Then one night I had the strangest dreams.....  they were like you tube tutorials.  Seriously.  They were narrated and showed step by step gardening techniques to turn our rock hard new ground into a rich and flourishing garden scape. 

The techniques that I remember included.... 

Planting in cardboard - cheapest raised beds available, helps maintain moisture to the soil, breaks down and adds to the soil for the future 

Irrigating from the duck pond - free - While the water is icky to swim in, it is full of nutrients and microbes which will feed the plants and add healthy bacteria to the soil 

Manure/green manure- free - most small farmers do not use all their bounty of manure which adds nutrients, and helps retain moisture, and provides a great substrate for worms and beneficial bacteria to live in, cheap or free - old hay can be added, as can other certain plants as 'green' manure

So I immediately started using these the techniques and planning ahead to my garden next year.

In addition to these efforts, we have been blessed by a present from my husband's mother.....


I think next year's gardening will be GLORIOUS! In fact... I'm going to look at some seed catalogs now....

Never Compromise, Part II

NEVER COMPROMISE!

Again, I am speaking to those who claim the salvation of the blood.

NEVER COMPROMISE!
Never accept second best. Never assume, believe, or accept that the best is not only possible, but MUCH, MUCH, MUCH better.

John 10:10
"The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly."

Politics
Once again it is election season in the United States. Everyone takes their sides and rallies behind their man, or woman. I believe I can safely say that the majority of Conservative Christians will be rallied behind the Republican party and their current nominee, Mitt Romney. Some Christians equally rally to the Democrats party. I will mostly direct my statements towards those who call themselves Republicans, since I know more of them, and once considered myself among their ranks.
Because I know my fellow christians.... I know that this is where it will get very difficult to nod your head in agreement with me. I know that this is where many will be tempted to stop reading.
PLEASE listen.
Never compromise. Never accept second best.
The first part of this compromise is the fact that Christians do not need a King. We have a beautiful King. We have a Lord and a Master and a Saviour and a God that loves us and promises us every good thing. The bible clearly places the husband as the head of the home, and Christ as the head of man.
There should be no in between.
1 Timothy 2:5
"For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus..."
Why vote, and SHOUT WITH JOY, for another Lord and Master? God allowed the Israelites to have a King, not because they needed one, or because it would be good for them. He allowed them to have a King because they would not stop DEMANDING one.
1 Samuel 8:7-9
And the Lord said to Samuel, “Heed the voice of the people in all that they say to you; for they have not rejected you, but they have rejected Me, that I should not reign over them. According to all the works which they have done since the day that I brought them up out of Egypt, even to this day—with which they have forsaken Me and served other gods—so they are doing to you also. Now therefore, heed their voice. However, you shall solemnly forewarn them, and show them the behavior of the king who will reign over them.”
The second part of this compromise is the fact that voting for the 'lesser evil' is STILL EVIL. Yes, I have seen and heard my fellow christians admit that they KNOW they are voting for the lesser evil, the slower descent into hell. They choose the 'best' that is offered, not realizing that what is offered is a LIE!

NEVER COMPROMISE!
Do you not realize that IF YOU VOTE for any man, you are GUILTY for his actions as well?
Republicans, Democrats..... They are BOTH GUILTY of horrible atrocities against the citizens of the United States and around the world
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_phosphorus_use_in_Iraq - This is just ONE disgusting action our government is guilty of, and hundreds if not thousands of innocents will be suffering to years to come.

Looking at our current 'choices' I am dismayed that my fellow Christians can find it in their hearts to support either candidate.



Don't misunderstand me. I despise our current administration.
But the very things I despise about it are not going to change in any way by throwing our support to the Republican candidate Mitt Romney.

Don't believe it......
HERE is a list of the things I HATE Obama for.

1. Obamacare and the Forced Taxes/Fees Placed on those who already do not want or cannot afford Healthcare
2. Monsanto and the Legalized Poisoning of our Food Supply
3. Federal Reserve unmonitored and destroying the economic system in our country
4. Mounting Gun Laws that Consistently INFRINGE on our RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS
5. Continuous War Against People Who Have Done NOTHING To Us
6. NDAA and Indefinite Detention of Citizens without Charges or Trial
7. Drone deployment throughout the US That spy on us and HAVE the capability of killing anyone at any moment


And here is where Romney stands on these issues.....
1. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ErwqXHXh8g - He intend to REPLACE Obamacare with Romneycare. Not much difference, just a different King.
2. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s6VnpfxBqCw, http://www.naturalnews.com/037327_Romney_Monsanto_Bain.html - He is in league with this corporation, instrumental in their governmental entanglements and the coverup of the deadly work they are doing worldwide.
3. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u_Hnu0Hp2NU, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EN0mF3fO1Mk, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5FtzSmlkncM - He says he now wants the Federal Reserve audited, except that he trusts them implicitly and thinks that they are 'not the problem.'
4. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HsPfLId1ndI - He say he supports our Second Amendment, except he also wants more background checks, certain weapons banned, supports existing gun laws (like Washington DCs?) and will consider new gun laws regarding the 'lethality' of weapons.
5.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cZq6yct53-Y, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-owyb4Ylqno, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zmfYt5BKPcg - It is a 'war, war, war' mentality. And our military is already HUGE, and a HUGE budget expense. But a totalitarian regime NEEDS alot of guns behind it.
6.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FUZoPnYjx0g - He would have signed it, and defends the governments ability to arrest people without charges or trial.
7.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F2gCv_nOvrI - I cannot find ANYTHING from Romney speaking about domestic drones. But knowing that he approves them in other countries to hunt down 'terrorists' and as stated above, approves NDAA indefinite detention without charges or trial of US 'terrorists' I bet he thinks the drones are fine. Again, a totalitarian regime needs eyes and guns EVERYWHERE.

Some may notice I do not include the abortion issue above. Is this because I don't care about these millions of lost unborn children? NO.
It is because I fear the parties are playing a game that we are missing the rules for.....

"Republicans have no real incentive to do anything about abortion, because their politicians need it to be their major campaign issue year after year. Democrats, likewise, always need a pro-life issue to demonize to make sure their own campaign agenda is set. The battleground is a farce. Likewise, pro-life interest groups play the game as well, because they need to continue lining their coffers. Statism damns it all.
The only consistent position of someone who truly cares about pro-life issues is to be a complete anarchist, because the State is always a peddler of death and deception. When they aren’t killing babies at home, the US government kills babies abroad in endless wars and interventions. If you truly desire to save children, abolish the State."
- http://libertarianchristians.com/2012/08/21/todd-akins-rape-comments-and-the-absurdity-of-right-wing-pro-lifers/

It's a scary thought. What's even scarier is that with 40ish years of Roe vs Wade being law..... I believe it.

I challenge you to look hard at your reasons for voting for any man..... and see if he really lines up with your image of 'King.'

This is what MY KING says.....
John 10:10 "The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly."

Joshua 24:15
And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”

NEVER COMPROMISE!
Never accept second best. Never assume, believe, or accept that the best is not only possible, but MUCH, MUCH, MUCH better.

Matthew 7:13
“Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it.

Never Compromise, Part I

NEVER COMPROMISE!

This word is to those who call on the name of the Lord for their salvation.

We have compromised so much. How many of you have begun to realize it? How many of you have begun the quest for truth, tearing down the strongholds and lies? How many of you have the courage to NEVER COMPROMISE?

Again, I am speaking to those who claim the salvation of the blood.

NEVER COMPROMISE!
Never accept second best. Never assume, believe, or accept that the best is not only possible, but MUCH, MUCH, MUCH better.

John 10:10
"The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly."

Marriage
I met my husband when I was 17. He was the sweetest, most honest and loving boy I ever knew. I could not help but love him. He dumped me. Against all reason and rational thought, the Lord gave me a promise and a vision that Aaron was made for me, and I was made for him. So I waited. I waited and waited. I ignored every single piece of 'advice' that well meaning family and friends had for me. I clung to the word of the Lord. I did not compromise. I did not accept second best. I am married to a man that I love, admire, and respect. I am incredibly happy with him.



Childbearing
Doctors told me I would never, ever bring a child to term in my womb. Note, they didn't say I could not get pregnant, they said every baby in my womb would DIE. My husband said the Lord showed him our children. And I acted in faith, accepted becoming pregnant and now have 3 beautiful children and another joining us very soon.
Doctors then told me I would have to have c-sections with all my children, resulting in drastically limiting the number of children I had. The Lord led my husband and I both to birth our children at home. We were told constantly how dangerous, how risky, how reckless this course of action was. Without this course of action, some of my babies never had a chance at life. And I could not imagine life without their sweet faces.
We now eagerly accept and pray for the Lord to bless our family with these blessings. And we realize the negative comments from others are rooted in a misunderstanding or rejection of the promises and blessings of the Lord.
Psalm 127:4-5
"Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, So are the children of one’s youth.
Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them; They shall not be ashamed, But shall speak with their enemies in the gate."


Education
Parents everywhere are told and unquestioningly accept that the public school system is the best way to educate your child and give them a chance to succeed in the fast paced business world. The Lord again led my husband and I, both, to homeschool our children. And even within the confines of homebased education, the Lord directed my curriculum choices and methods to follow HIS word in Duet 6, and NOT the public school methods.
Deuteronomy 6:6-7
"And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up."
When my son asked why fellow homeschoolers were busy 'schooling' 5-6 hours of the day compared to our hour or so of sit down work, I delighted in quizzing him in the 'other' areas of his schooling.
My son knows the entire lifecycle of a chicken, including their proper care, incubation techniques, butchering methods. He knows about the layers of the earth and how they affect and create earthquakes and volcanoes. He knows about microorganisms and how sometimes they are beneficial and sometimes they make people, animals and plantlife weakly, ill, or cause death. He knows many natural ways to treat some of these ailments without drugs or antibiotics. His science knowledge alone floors me. The list goes on.


Don't let finances deter you from teaching your children!
Free, Online Homeschool Curriculum for PreSchoolers

Healthcare
My family learned that many of the commonly accepted methods of healthcare, namely drugs and vaccines are actually directly related to many common ailments suffered by people everywhere. Researching more deeply revealed horrific ingredients, unacceptable testing methods and complete lies regarding the safety and efficacy of these 'healthcare' techniques.
Many people in Washington State suffered from whooping cough this year. It was reported in the news as an epidemic for many months and the calls were heard from every corner, "Get your vaccinations!"
Little did people know that vaccinations CAUSED the outbreak to begin with, and those who were PROPERLY vaccinated found themselves oddly without any protection against this disease after all.
My husband and I, especially after birthing our children without 'medical' help were led by the Lord to trust Him and approach ANY ailment prayerfully.
2 Chronicles 16:12-13
"And in the thirty-ninth year of his reign, Asa became diseased in his feet, and his malady was severe; yet in his disease he did not seek the Lord, but the physicians.
So Asa rested with his fathers; he died in the forty-first year of his reign." [ie. He DIED.]

Holidays vs Holy Days
For years my husband and I tried to celebrate the holidays and make Christ central, beloved and not forgotten. Each holiday ended with regret. My children remembered only the candy, or the presents. They did not retain WHAT the season had to do with Christ. And who could blame them? What do painted eggs hidden under bushes have to do with Christ? What does an evergreen tree trimmed with silver and gold and lights have to do with Christ? Then we saw this article... http://newlifeonahomestead.com/2011/11/why-weve-decided-to-stop-celebrating-christmas/
Our hearts were stricken. To think that our worship was displeasing to the Lord whom we loved for all those years. We vowed then, we would NEVER again compromise. The word IS the word. If the Lord says it displeases Him, we cannot argue.
We looked to the word and found His Holy feasts. These are the ways of worship and celebration that PLEASE HIM! Many of our friends and families are upset by this decision. We have endless discussions with them since choosing this for our family. They tell us that they can make a pagan ritual Christ centered. They tell us that they can make another day holy instead of the Sabbath. Basically they are saying.... "We will do it our way, and not the Lord's."
But my family has chosen to do it the Lord's way. It is not easy learning how to do things that we have not seen and done before. Fortunately with the internet we have made contact with others making this same journey and can learn together, rejoice together, and then worship the Lord as he has requested.
My heart is overjoyed that we did not compromise now. After the Holy Day... I ask my son.... What was this holy day about?
'Yeshua.'
And that is exactly the way it is supposed to be.

Joshua 24:15
And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”



NEVER COMPROMISE!
Never accept second best. Never assume, believe, or accept that the best is not only possible, but MUCH, MUCH, MUCH better.
