This is a great song, "Uprising" by Muse. I was listening to it one day and thought, gee, this sounds a lot like the stand we are currently taking against the government, who is actively pushing pills on our society like birth control and the abortion pill (all under the guise of "freeeeeedom for women"). Don't fall for the P.R. machine. Rise up!
The paranoia is in bloom The P.R. transmissions will resume They'll try to push drugs to keep us all dumbed down And hope that we will never see the truth around
So come on
Another promise, another seed, another Packaged lie to keep us trapped in greed with all the Green belts wrapped around our minds and endless Red tape to keep the truth confined
So come on
They will not force us And they will stop degrading us And they will not control us We will be victorious
So come on
Interchanging mind control Come let the revolution take its toll If you could flick a switch and open your third eye You'd see that we should never be afraid to die
So come on
Rise up and take the power back It's time the fat cat's had a heart attack You know that their time is coming to an end We have to unify and watch our flag ascend
So come on
They will not force us They will stop degrading us They will not control us We will be victorious, so come on
so I've been a little...distant...lately. We had a rough year last year. Like seriously rough. And when things get rough, we go into survival mode. I've been retreating and healing. Here's a short summary of how the end of 2013 went:
July: my husband's sister passed away unexpectedly at the age of 39 from MS
August: we found out we were expecting another baby (not bad news! but read on...)
September: I suffered a miscarriage. We found out through an ultrasound. There was no longer a heartbeat. We found this out the day before my grandfather passed away. Then two and a half weeks after that my husband's brother was found unconscious on the sidewalk and rushed to the hospital. He was in a coma for two weeks, and a team of amazing doctors and nurses worked diligently to save his life. He is still recovering from that, and it was a most difficult time for all of us.
October: just when I felt we couldn't handle any more bad news, my husband lost his job
Have you ever felt like the punches will never end?! At times like these we count our blessings and trudge forward. Here were are at the end of all of this heart-wrenching chaos. My husband found another wonderful job (thank you, Lord!), and we have been blessed with another baby (expected due date is December 24th). And it's another boy! While we were really hoping Zoë would get a little sister, we know that ultimately God has a plan and that's always better than anything we plan. And He must think we're pretty awesome at raising boys. Or maybe He knows we wouldn't be able to handle more than one girl. Hehe! I hope to start writing more soon. Not for anyone but me. I talk myself out of not writing most days because I'm too afraid that someone might read it and will see I'm, well, amateur. I have to remind myself that I'm not trying to win any literary awards, so I need to learn to take it easy and don't try so hard and just say what I want to say. If anything, I'd appreciate prayers. From anyone who thinks about us. We are still recovering from last year, and things can still be scary for us. kristy
When I left the Catholic Church at the ripe age of 15, I didn't fully realize what I was leaving. I didn't know that the communion I received at my new non-Catholic Church was so fundamentally different from the communion I had been receiving at my Catholic Church. I'm not sure why I didn't realize this. I had been through my First Communion, but maybe it had just been going through the motions and doing what I was told to do. I didn't know when I left the Catholic Church I was leaving the body and blood of Jesus. I didn't know. I am willing to bet at least 95% of Catholics who leave the Catholic Church for a non-Catholic church have no idea that they are actually leaving the body and blood of Jesus. This is one of the best teachings about what we believe about the Eucharist. The Eucharist has changed my life. I must share it! It would be unloving of me to keep this secret to myself.
