[being ready at all times]

Zee Gimon

I am Zee. I call myself the Observer because that's what I find myself doing most of the time - observe life and people around me. My blog is a Pensieve, similar to that of Dumbledore, used to keep the thoughts and random ideas that visit my brain.

  • A lot of people use different "methods." I was not there & I don't care at all for scaring people into submission. With that being said, I'm sure you did a good job clarifying it to your kids.
    My recent post I Want You To Know

    • I hope I did… I pray I did. Yet, I don't know. I tried my best yet I was lost myself…

  • I have been wondering lately if maybe we aren't supposed to stand up and deny these practices instead of trying to clean up afterwards.

    I have been to some places that it took everything I had to remain seated and silent…. and I wonder if maybe that was the wrong choice.
    My recent post Getting some Nooky

    • hehe… oh, i remained quiet then only for the sake of my kiddos – did not want to confuse them on the first day of the camp – the speaker at the camp's got authority and i did not want them to get completely confused as to whom they should listen to. but trust me – when the leaders' time came in the evening, i said everything that was on my mind………and walked away from the meeting because i could not hold tears.
      My recent post sharing a dream

  • You wonder what is going through someones mind when they are "teaching" about God's love using scare tactics and arrogance…

    My recent post Show Mercy

    • insecurity… at least that's what i felt "Elsie" feeling… and usually i am pretty accurate on observing the emotions.

      that however doesn't give a right to a person to diminish someone else's self-worth by saying that "your answer's wrong." after all, kids all gave good answers… yes, those steps were not the INITIAL ones, but they were not WRONG. and if anyone's to blame, it's us adults who settle for "correct answers" and teach 'em to our kids… **sigh**

  • Don't you just hate it when your mom is right? 😀 On another note: I wondered if you or someone was going to stand up confront her. I would have been hard-pressed to not show my emotions that's for sure. I tend to agree with Tony. I totally disagree with this woman's approach and am so glad that you and the kids had their souls "soothed" by your pastor's approach. I totally reject badgering and scaring anyone, especially kids, into submission to Jesus. But your point is taken: we do need to be prepared for any and all situations. For what it's worth: I think you handled it well.
    My recent post Quitting

    • good one, Bill, but actually i got used to mom being right most of the time – the only issue that we really argue about is in assessment of people we both know… that's when we start disagreeing.

      heh, i think i stared my pastor down a few times during that "sermon" of Elsie's… gotta give credit to him – he did translate it gentler than she said it in English. but oh…. i felt almost bad for chewing him out in the evening after the program… i was so mad (and i told him and the camp director as much)… and lemme tell you – i was dancing with joy (literally) when i was told that she's gone.

      that's the lesson i've learned from that experience… i should've handled it wiser… but i'll remember that for the next time… just because my emotions are on a rollercoaster, that ain't really an excuse not to share Christ and His love with others.

      thanks, Bill.
