Change and Problematic Paths

In order to prove that I am not going to be tied up with the scales or weight loss, 
I joined this Facebook challenge:

And not only that, I even weighed this morning, 
after I had decided that I wouldn't weigh again until February 1.
::::lolz:::::



Have you heard about 8 year old Shiloh Jolie-Pitt? According to an interview with Brad Pitt some time ago, she now will only answer to John.  Her choice of clothing is masculine.   I hope it's a phase that she outgrows...but I fear it is not.  

I do not profess to know what goes on in the heads of people like Chasity Bono, I just know that God created her female and had (has) plans for her as a female.   It saddens me that way too many of us are so out of sorts with who we are created to be.  

Peace and happiness won't come with changing outward appearances, that only comes from change from within, and true change comes from handing ourselves over to Jesus Christ for redemption.  I definitely include myself here.  Changing how much I weigh, my outward appearance, whether fat or thin, does not change me on the inside, though it can make me feel better physically.  (However, being in control of my appetite does put me in a better frame of mind.) Our problems will follow us on every path we choose until they are dealt with and resolved.   

Something I wrote sometime ago...with Shiloh added:  

If I were to tattoo green scales on my skin, split my tongue, put implants in my forehead, and change my name to Liz, I still wouldn’t be a lizard.

If I were to surgically alter my face so that my features resembled a feline, paint on whiskers, and change my name to Kitty, I still wouldn’t be a cat.

If I were to walk around on all fours, barking, lapping water from a bowl and eating Alpo, I still wouldn’t be a dog.

If I were to load up on male hormones, get a deeper voice and lose my boobs (which would be a feat unto itself), make the late night TV talk circuit and introduce myself as Chaz, I still wouldn’t be a man.

If the parents of 8 year old Shiloh Jolie-Pitt call her John at her request, she will still be a little girl.



To borrow lyrics from The Kinks:
Girls will be boys, and boys will be girls.
It's a mixed up, muddled up, shook up world…


Psalm 37:3-5
Trust in the Lord, and do good;
Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness.
Delight yourself also in the Lord,
And He shall give you the desires of your heart.
Commit your way to the Lord,
Trust also in Him, and He shall bring it to pass.

  1. I am going to do that challenge, but probably start it next week after the rest of our stuff gets here and we will settle back into meals at home. Looks like a good one. Eight years old is interesting for Shiloh to have these thoughts, makes you wonder who is influencing her.

  2. Both Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are publicly avowed atheists. They both work very hard to further Gay & Transgender rights & issues. It is not surprising at all that they would wholeheartedly encourage one of their own children to express herself in this unnatural manner.
    In fact, they are probably very happy to have one of the Hollywood Couple's newest fad accessories "Transgender or gay children". Toy dogs in the purse are out this year.. Sodomy is the only sin named for a city, Sodom as in Sodom & Gomorrah. I was online last week researching Naomi & Ruth. Do you know I found websites written by gays trying to 're-interpret Ruth 1:14 to illustrate that Ruth loved Naomi the way Adam loved Eve. These sites were blended in between legitimate Christian sites. Margaret was absolutely right when she said in another blog that Christians have to start standing up for their rights, we have to vote against leaders who want to legalize gay marriage, marijuana, abortion, freedom from religion (Atheist group), etc... pray for our leaders. Protest in a legal manner, write intelligent to the point emails & Letters. Letters in Mass will inundate a sponsor or congressman just like the old days. Know the enemies, boycott movies with proud avowed atheists starring in them. How many can you name? Pray for all lost souls to become born again Christians! Joaquin Phoenix, Jodie Foster, Kiera Knightly, Julianne Moore, Seth McFarlane, Morgan Freeman, Hugh hefner, Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Thompson, Billy Joel, Javier Bardiem, Paul Giamatti, Katherine Hepburn, James Cameron, etc.......

  4. The names of the celebrities listed under Victoria's comment section have all publicly made declarations of Atheism.
    Please pray for all lost souls.
    God Bless, Victoria
