I realize that the Church of Christ is known for how the men treat the woman but honestly!

Okay so I go to a Church of Christ and I know the rules that many men seem to think that we need to live by but I don’t think that I can, in fact I know that I can’t, Bill didn’t raise his daughter to keep her opinions to herself. In fact I’ve seen to the glint in his eyes when I give my opinion very strongly. Now that’s the very thing that gets me in trouble. I have a brain and a voice and I use them.

I’ve never spotted a place in the bible where it said woman keep you opinions to yourself like the old way CofC s and CofCers think. Woman have voices and rights men. That way of thinking got me yelled at shortly before an event was about to start. The odd thing is that I didn’t yell nor did I demand I asked where some things were and got yelled at. That shocked me because I honestly just asked and was told that he didn’t know where it was. My response was sharp because I had been yelled at the whole time I was on the phone then to my surprise I was yelled at in person. I tried to defuse the situation by asking him to stop and do a sit down with another man. He refused and kept yelling. I asked him to please act professionally because people could hear and he told me that only my daughter could hear. Ummm lets back up here my child was not only shocked that he yelled at me over the phone but that he got in my face in front of her right before and event. I did speak to one of the other members of the team and told her that any time that I’ve spoken to him about any issue he has walked away. She let me know that he does the same thing to her and gives him very little respect.

Ah ha! It’s about women.

Putting that fact that he isn’t the right person for the job and that he should do things differently he still has had some home runs. I’ve never failed to speak about the hits. And I’ve never failed to speak about the misses where the ministry I work for is concerned. I got from his yelling that others have told him when I’ve spoken out. I said that yes I have spoken about being frustrated about damage to things. I won’t repeat what he said because it was as shocking as stupid. I felt set up that night from the get go and will be on guard from now on. I now know where the trust is. That is also shocking because I thought I could trust the man that I can now see that I can’t. Plus He needs to not be in it so that it’s a set up for the way things went the other night. He wasn’t asked to be in and should keep his mouth shut in front of guest also. It’s a hot spot to me to do that in front of the guest that is about to speak.

Now how are things? They are fine, they were fine before, and they will be fine again. I now know that he feels that walking away and not listening to what us ladies have to say is because he’s old CofC.

Most of all I find it hard at times to be treated like a bitch for speaking when the men are treated like they have the rights. I do sometimes wonder how long I can stay with a church like that.

Don’t get me wrong this church that I go to is making strides where women are concerned but they have a long way baby. Do I think that every man will see us women as equals? NOPE! NO WAY! Some of you dudes will always be the jerks that you are. But that’s okay because bless your hearts God loves you.

God, He rolls like that for us gals (My begining)

How cool!

He appeared 12 times and the first time the women saw Him.
Not that I think us women need to push our power and I haven't made a cardboard sign so that I can march on Washington as an equal to men, I just think it's cool that the ladies were first. We did a whole bunch of stuff in the bible. I think you should read it. It's really cool.

Matthew 28:1-10 NIV

Matthew 28
Jesus Has Risen
1 After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb.
2 There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it. 3 His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow. 4 The guards were so afraid of him that they shook and became like dead men.

5 The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. 6 He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. 7 Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.’ Now I have told you.”

8 So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples. 9 Suddenly Jesus met them. “Greetings,” he said. They came to him, clasped his feet and worshiped him. 10 Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid. Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they will see me.”

Hello out there

Change is . . . good. .. .change is good.
So this here blog is going more public.

I want to say that I cleaned up a few things. I also let a few things stay. Look this here blog reflects how I felt and see and saw the world around me as I see fit. I have typos and use grammar like an angry lemur with a baby seal. That’s right I make up my own rules.

What I’ve always wanted to convey is that you are welcome here. Pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee, and talk to me.
