Irene, please don't come to land

Very talented response to a very real threat.

Now someone equally talented needs to write an Irene hurricane song to this tune, although it is rather a bit to happy when dealing with this monster storm.

Woman as Protector

The mama bear instinct is alive and well in women, no matter how hard the gender hierarchalists try to stamp her out. Every time I travel down I-55 in Illinois, I see a sign about one, little known historical figure named Mother Jones.

Here is a link to a story about her:

Don't believe the lies certain teachers promote. Both men and women are called to protect. Part of Womanhood is being a Protector

This has been an emotional week.

I got back Tuesday from visiting my 94 year old grandmother 1000 miles west of here. I don't know if I will see her alive again or if my next trip west will be to her funeral.

Today, I take my oldest daughter to University. I'm launching my baby out into the world where she will either sink or swim. But I have confidence in her. She's wise, strong, and beautiful and can take care of herself. She'll do fine. I'm just really going to miss her being around the house.

Scarcity Thinking & Dominion

Naomi King Walker has an excellent Blog Post on Scarcity thinking, something I have been aware of for some time but wasn't sure what it was called. It so much applies to Hierarchy and Patriarchy thinking that has infiltrated the church and cause so much heart ache in men, women, and children. Families are being broken by this false doctrine parading around as "Christian" and "God's divine order".

If you have a chance, bop over to Naomi's blog and read. You won't regret it.

Lies (some) Men Believe About Women

As I gear up for my trip out west, I have little time to put my thoughts down on this blog.
But I still get on line from time to time and come across some really good stuff.
A lot of what is going on in my blog roll is good, although I have one sad note.
My friend Charis, who comments as Gem here, is closing down her blog, "A Wife's Submission". Her thoughts on these things will be sorely missed. But as happens from time to time, we have to move on. And that is what she's has to do.

Also, I often visit Sierra's blog via Lewis's blog roll. She comes at dealing with fundamentalism from a different angle. Her post today touches on things I believe deal with what we talk about here. One of those things is the structures set up by men concerning women that have little to do with what women really think or the real reasons women do things. I could go on and explain, but Sierra at "The Unspoken Words" does a much better job. So if you have time, hop over and give her blog a view.
