Ireland Baldwin

Sometimes I am slow to reading the celebrity gossip as I don’t particularly live for it each day but I have to say something struck me as I read Ireland Baldwin was getting hate mail.  Here is a beautiful girl who has her whole life ahead of her worrying about getting hate mail from people who don’t know her.  I can feel her pain as she is urging people to give her a chance.

She is trying to make her way into modeling but has run across unfavorable comments made toward her because she isn’t as pretty as her mother or how much of an entitled brat she is.  In an effort to reach out to the world for a chance she went to her Tumbler page and posted the following comment.

(THE BELOW PARAGRAPH IS A QUOTE FROM IRELAND BALDWIN AND  WAS TAKEN FROM AN ARTICLE WRITTEN ON YAHOO)

Ireland writes:

“I do not want to simply be known as a model. I am proud to be my parent’s daughter, but I don’t want to forever be known as ‘that rude thoughtless little pig’ or ‘Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger’s kid.’ I have passions and interests of my own that I want to soon give life to. I want to be known for helping others and being a healthy role model. That is what matters most to me overall. Before sending hateful replies and emails, consider all of this. Talk to me! I am friendly. I do not think I am better than anyone.”

The End.

Amazingly this is a teenager who cares about what others think of her.  I hope people see this and realize that she is not just a celebrities kid born into fame and fortune but is a human being with feelings.  She bleeds just as anyone else bleeds.  She made a believer out of me as well as proved my prior post about bullying.  How really, really sad to have people say cruel things towards another when they don’t care to take the time to get to know them first.  Why? Because they don’t like the way someone look’s or maybe it’s because they don’t like themselves that they make these rude and ugly comments about people they don’t know?

My guess is that they don’t like themselves very much at all and feel the need to lash out at others in order to make themselves seem like a better person.  Here’s a news flash for you.  No matter how much you kick down someone else you are still the same person you will always be.  When you look in the mirror truth sets in and it is now compounded by more mean treatment towards others.  What you see when you look at yourself in the mirror can’t be very pleasing because you know what you’ve done to others better than anyone else.

If you want to like yourself or be able to think highly of yourself try giving to others instead.  When you give to another you will see how much better your life becomes.  I challenge you to try a different path other than bullying.  Instead of knocking a person’s looks or belittling someone you don’t know because you think they are weird get to know them.  Through getting to know them maybe you can see the world through a different set of eyes.   You may find you yourself will gain a new perspective and maybe even a good honest lifelong friend; someone to be there for you through thick and thin. Someone who unlike yourself can love you unconditionally without condemnation.

Try it you might just like the new you.  I know others will.

A World of Bullies

In my years on earth I have noticed human behavior in its finest.  I have hung out with the elite, rich people as well as run with the homeless for a few years while finding my purpose.  I walk in kindness and have been the victim of many brutal beatings, kidnaps and other torturing consequences of being a young female in the streets sleeping in abandoned cars.

I became homeless after many years of domestic violence took its toll on me.  I believed I was not worthy of the life God had given me.  Two people, a married couple found me when I was in jail on a drug charge.  They asked me what it would take for my life to be different.  I said for someone to believe in me.  I said I felt that I was born years too late in life that I wish I were born long ago in the days of the prairie because in those days there was brotherhood.

They did something completely extraordinary.  They enclosed their garage to accommodate another person then invited me to come live with them.  They did this to show the true meaning of Christ, love they neighbor.  From that moment on my life began to grow and my purpose soon became apparent.  I have dedicated my life to following God’s calling on it; help those who were like I use to be.

Songs for God came to me spontaneously and within seconds.  I had met a rhythm and blues recording artist who use to be on Mercury records who took a liking to my songs and agreed to help me with them.  He had contracted his own studio musician to put music behind all my songs. This musician was playing with Bobbie Brown & The New Edition at the time.  He went on to play with Justin Bieber. How is this possible?

I tell you my friend God is real.  In my own might I would never been able to get the top musicians and artist in the country to work with me, a nobody!  Remembering those days keeps me grounded in knowing that God does exist because I was not a lucky person.  If you heard tales of my past life and the things that took place you would know this to be so.

The next decade I spent traveling telling my story, singing my songs to women of domestic violence and those in substance abuse clinics.  I went back to school to get my AA of Science with a 4.0 average.  I then went on to get my Medical Billing Certification all through the power of believing God was watching and expected me to put my best foot forward.  Here was a woman who had given up as so many other homeless people have. Why?  Because people treated them mean to such a degree that they stopped believing in themselves.

If you want the world to get better we have to stop bullying others.  It is not productive and only causes evil to come in droves.  By knocking your fellow person you never know if that was the last knock they can take leaving them reeling out of control.  For the wicked they don’t see their part but others see it.  Those who have eyes see the hurt that the bullies have done.

The sad part is that those people who find it humorous to say mean things to people are people who don’t have enough self-confidence in themselves.  They hurt others in order to make themselves shine when all those watching can see the truth.  Bullies are like everyone else just looking for their place in this world.  How will we change this type behavior?  I think we are on the right path.  Zero tolerance to bullying. Stop the behavior while they are young and if needed go after those parents who won’t put their foot down on this behavior.

The reason I am writing this today is someone felt so threatened by my response to his comment that he called my comments pathetic and deceitful.  It was good to be able to see his insults as his problem and not mine.  I wish I could shine this light on all those who have bullies ruining their lives.  I have found the strength to draw on and His name is Jesus Christ.

Dynasty drama

The Cyberprophet

ImageI feel the need suddenly to voice an opinion regarding the recent story about Phil Robertson, the scraggly-bearded millionaire from “Duck Dynasty”. As you know, he made some rather crude comments about homosexuality and sin recently on GQ magazine, and also some comments that made him sound racist against blacks. As a result, he has been permanently banned from starring in his A&E reality series, and his family are now discussing their role with the series as well in defense of their patriarch.

Here is what the interview with Phil originally said, taken directly from the GQ website:

Out here in these woods, without any cameras around, Phil is free to say what he wants. Maybe a little too free. He’s got lots of thoughts on modern immorality, and there’s no stopping them from rushing out. Like this one:It seems like, to me, a vagina—as a man—would be…

Charlie Sheen’s rants on Phil Robertson

Dearest Charlie

It never ceases to amaze me how you have such sight yet see so narrow mindedly.  Phil Robertson didn’t hurt your friends he only quoted what the bible says in regards to the question he was asked by probably your favorite magazine.  If you want to be mad at someone be mad at the magazine for stirring up trouble.  They knew very well how Phil would respond.

You call yourself a warlock so of course you find the bible and what is in it to be fairytale so why would you throw scripture back at Phil.  You made me laugh so hard. You don’t believe in the bible yet you can’t find another stand to take but a scripture verse?  Not very original of you.

Christians are called to apply the bible and it’s teachings to our everyday walk.  Although you will never understand that because you took the opposite path.  It is what our faith dictates us to do in order to enlighten our brother or sister to a certain way of life pleasing to God.  Never is it meant as judgment yet a person will feel condemned in hearing it when their heart is blackened by darkness.

Not just Phil but every pastor gets up on Sunday and reads passages from the bible Charlie.  Haven’t you ever been to church?  They aren’t judging their flock so how did you get that Phil was judging your friends and hurting them. If your friends have a relationship with God then they are not hurt by hearing scripture they know and understand scripture for it’s meaning. It is after all the person’s relationship with Christ that wins them into heaven so they are not worried.  I have a feeling it was you Charlie that was hurt.

This bible verse didn’t just pop up out of thin air it has been there for centuries.  It is unfortunate that the magazine asked those questions for the sake of selling their magazine but Phil is not to blame here.  Blame the greedy magazine editor that was too greedy to care about how it would affect others Charlie. Go after them because Phil did what his faith calls him to do; he quoted scripture.  Not his opinion but scripture.

I hope one day you will find peace because it is clear you are struggling in front of the whole world with your life.  You live a life where everything is a part that you play.  The people around you are phony as the day is long after you for your money or what else you may be able to do for them.  Every time I see your rants my heart breaks for you because I know deep down inside you just want to be loved like everyone else.

Phil Robertson quotes on Gay’s and Lesbian’s

Status

Well I have been following the Phil Robertson mess until I have to speak my mind on it.  First and foremost I believe the guy was asked a question and he gave his answer.  The answer he gave was a quote in scripture.  This is his belief and his faith which anyone reading the bible on a daily basis and going to church believes in.  They are to uphold the contents of the bible as true words of God.

For you to ridicule him and to suspend him because of his religious belief’s is wrong.   I think it’s against the law even; isn’t it?  I don’t think you can discriminate against someone who works for you because of their religious beliefs.  Two why would a magazine knowing this is a man of God ask him a question like this.  It was a loaded question and the man had to quote the bible to you or he would not be true to his faith.  He would be risking his relationship with God in order to say anything else.

The magazine not only set Phil Robertson up but wanted to start trouble by stirring the pot.  I think a boycott of this magazine is in order.  I believe the magazine used Phil to sell more magazines and will not give mention to their name for that reason. How could you deliberately cause an incident such as this to deliberately hurt not only Phil Robertson but the gay and lesbian population.

It is not right what you did.  I believe that God is the only person who can say who is going to heaven or hell.  God knows a person’s heart and if it is pure or not.  God is not looking for perfection He is God. He knows that perfection isn’t going to be found in man.  Phil Robertson is standing on the word of God as set forth in the Old Testament.  He didn’t condemn them himself he quoted the scripture which included many other types of behaviors such as the drunkard and the sexually immoral so  stop twisting Phil’s word’s and intent.

Some people believe the Old Testament passed away with Jesus  even though Jesus states that he came not to abolish the law but to fulfill it I can’t interpret that.  He could have meant several things by that comment. I am not going to speculate because it is not my problem. I do what I think is right in my walk with God all others I let God sort it out.  That is His job after all not mine.  He is to judge those that shall enter into heaven.

I believe that Phil Robertson answered the question by telling this magazine what it says in the bible as if to say it is not up to him (Phil Robertson) to say one way or the other about the issue on gay’s because the bible says this to be so.

Again I am going to put it back on the magazine that published this garbage and tell them you used poor judgment and bad taste in asking the question to start with.  There is no need to make the gay population feel bad and no need to start trouble for Phil Robertson when you initiated this little pot stirring problem.

You make me sick all of you who could be so cruel to print this.  You weren’t exposing Phil for anything that people can’t figure out for themselves he is a Bible Believing Southern Man.  You just wanted to stir up trouble; unnecessary evil hurtful trouble.  I hope one day you reap what you sowed fifty times over.  That day will come sure as I am typing this; that day will come.

Phil get a lawyer I don’t think they can fire you for your religious beliefs.  You weren’t stating them while on the job were you?

Work Experience

I want to reach out to all those people who put so much in the years someone has worked at a job over the quality of the job they do.  I went to work at a company straight from billing school.  They were good enough to trust me based upon my 4.0 grade point average.

They were a OMH/Substance abuse specialty billing company.  I had one week of training when they handed me my first client.  They handed me my second client the next week and so on so by the time seven months rolled around I had five clients.  I worked their billing accounts from start to finish so when I went on to my next job after only seven months of experience I knew more than the people who had worked there 8-15 years.

I was the person who managed to pull the company out of a financial hole; me the person with seven months experience.  Now I was just passed over for a job because I have less than two years experience.  I managed to organize the company where I work so well with the right billing software that I managed my way out of a job description and was bored to death.

One person told me don’t tell them you have nothing to do they will let you go.  I said to this person I can’t just sit here four days looking at my computer screen.  I guess I could have done that but morally I wouldn’t be able to stand myself.

So all this hype about the person’s years of experience just isn’t an accurate way to look at someone and I hope this blog reaches people who will make the right choice and not put emphasis on the years you have worked somewhere because there are many people who have years of experience that don’t know what they are doing in the billing industry.  Take a look at their accomplishments on the job.  If someone like me was given two raises in a year totaling $12,000.00 that is a strong indication they are very talented in their profession.

Miley Cyrus Wrecking Ball

With all the in your face stunts Miley Cyrus has been doing lately it just occurred to me how devastated she has been over losing Liam. The song Wrecking Ball when sung without all the bells and whistles Miley added put it in perspective for me. The Gregory Brothers sang it so beautifully it made me realize the song’s true depth and meaning.

Miley is having a breakdown in front of the whole world and we are mocking her and making fun of her. She was obviously hit harder than she will admit as seen by her actions. I have to give her kudos for being able to go on and perform at all through the heartbreak and turmoil. I remember all too well the devastation of my break ups; how hurtful they were. Especially when your partner moves on without you.

Miley I for one want to say I am sorry for judging you. I hope you get your peace and tranquility  back without the use of drugs to do it because you have changed. There will always be people to accept how you have changed; people who do the same things but can you trust them Miley? I hope you continue to stay strong and it no longer matters to me what you do for shock value.

Liam thinks your sexy when you stand and sing in sexy outfits. You embarrass him when you do things like twerking so if you ever want to get him back you have to stand strong in a sexy glamorous way that he can’t get you out of his mind. Don’t push him away further with vulgar acts on stage. He is a full grown gorgeous man and they want women who acts like a lady in public and twerk only them…if you catch my drift.

Good luck Miley and I hope you get Liam back but remember he has brothers who care about him so if you aren’t making him happy they are going to make sure you stay gone.
