This is how I feel about fishing and how I’ve always felt about fishing

This is how I feel about fishing and how I’ve always felt about fishing, even as a little girl getting dragged along on fishing trips (sorry, Mum). It’s literally torturing an animal for fun and then leaving them, bruised and bleeding, to slowly die. The fact that this is considered a family activity, a bonding activity… there are few such horrific practices left in our society.
I don’t begrudge anyone for not having considered the issue before. But if, after thinking about it, you tend to agree… well, there are a million fun things to do in the world, and most of them don’t involve death or torture, and there’s so little time to experience all those things. Maybe there is another activity that would bring you joy instead :)

As per tradition, my Mom (aka Yiayia) and brother George (aka Big G) are staying with us for the holidays

As per tradition, my Mom (aka Yiayia) and brother George (aka Big G) are staying with us for the holidays. Last night, I cooked one of the few dishes I know how to make: pork chops, fried in mustard, then simmered in Campbell’s Cream of Mushroom soup. Oh, man. Yiayia was my sous-chef, Adam made the salad and peeled the potatoes, which Kuku mashed. Big G. made tea for himself and watched the proceedings with bemused satisfaction, occasionally rescuing a fork I kept dropping in the meat.
Besides, if you still want to explore Asia, Swan junk Halong Bay will be an ideal choice for you.

Being grateful is just the beginning of describing how I feel this holiday season

Being grateful is just the beginning of describing how I feel this holiday season. So many people went above and beyond for Logan. It means more to me than I am able to put into words. The amount of gifts he received from people on both sides of his family has really blown me away. From people he has known his entire life, just met this year, or who he hasn’t even been around more than once went out of there way to make his Christmas special. This little boy is so lucky to have so many people in his life that have love for him. I’d much rather people have a gift from 

golf galaxy for Logan than a gift for me because having a gift for him is a gift for me. Many parents can vouch for that. I thank every single one of you from the bottom of my heart.

a new book about people who have changed the World

I am writing a new book about people who have changed the World this is my take on My KINGJesus Christ is a spiritual teacher and the birthfather of the Christian Religion. Jesus preached a gospel based on love, faith, and forgiveness. Jesus is the son of God. Jesus was born of a virgin named Mary and a stepfather- a carpenter by the name of Joseph. Both Mary and Joseph were Jewish. Jesus was born in a small village called Bethlehem, Judea- that was under Roman rule at the time, under King Herod. Because the King had order a Roman census, Mary and Joseph had to travel to Bethlehem from a village called Nazareth for the census. It was then Mary had gone into labor. Because all the Inns were full with people traveling for the census, there was no room for Mary to have her child. A compassionate wife of one of the Inn Keeper’s offered Mary a stable to give birth in. Mary gave birth to Jesus on a bed of hay. ( The stable was were animals were stored) No doctor’s or mid-wife was present. But an angel named Gabriel announced Jesus’ birth to shepherd’s attending to the flocks in the field. So moved by the angel’s announcement, the shepherd’s traveled to pay homage to the baby. A baby born in a dirty stable where cow and horses called home to a teenage mother( Mary is said to be about 14 at the time) and to a stepfather who once rejected Mary and her child out of fear. Not only did the poor shepherds flock to see the poor baby, but three wise man( who are said to be Kings or learned Astronomers) that followed a very bright star in the sky for months before reaching the baby and Mary. The wise men brought Jesus gifts of Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh, later those gifts were used at Jesus’s burial. (Gold has historically served as a precious metal and form of currency. This gift would have provided Joseph and Mary the ability to pay for expenses as new parents. This gift also likely supported the family during their time in Egypt (Matthew 2:13-15). Some traditions further note that gold is a symbol of divinity, recognizing Jesus as God in human form.
Frankincense is a white resin from Boswellia trees that has long been used for incense or perfume. This resin has also been used as a traditional medicine in some cultures. The wise men likely presented frankincense as a perfume or oil to be used for Jesus. Frankincense was also used during worship (Exodus 30:34), perhaps symbolizing holiness. Like the frankincense in the Old Testament, Jesus would be given up as an offering for the sins of humanity.
Myrrh has been used throughout history in a variety of ways. Taken from the resin of trees in Arabia of the Commiphora family, it is often used as a perfume. Other uses have included medicinal as a digestive aid when mixed with wine, cosmetic or for purification (Esther 2:12), and embalming. Traditions often connect myrrh with the wine mix offered to Jesus on the cross (Mark 15:23) and associate its bitter taste with the suffering Jesus endured on the cross. The use of myrrh in embalming has also been associated with the death of Jesus.)
When Harrod heard of another” King” being born, he feared Jesus would over throw him, so Harrod sent out his army and killed every male child in his kingdom under the age of two. ( Referred to the slaughter of the innocents) Joseph was warned of The King’s plan in a dream, so he and his family escaped to Egypt before Jesus was killed. They only returned after the evil King had died.
When Jesus was age 30, he began his public ministry. His first two disciples were fisherman-Brothers Andrew and Simon Peter. Jesus beckoned the two men as they were casting their nets saying,” Come follow me and I will make you fishers of men.” As his followers grew to 12 men, Jesus began performing miracles. He turned water into wine at a family wedding in Cana( this was his first public miracle, the his mother Mary urged him to perform.) Take a big savings at 

Scholastic
After, the wedding Jesus began healing sick people. His first documented healing was that of a royal official’s son. Jesus promised the official that his son who was dying, that his son would be healed. Jesus healed the dying boy without ever laying his hands or eyes on him. The Royal Roman official believed in Jesus after that. (Remember, this is a time that people worship statues instead of believing in God.) Word began to spread about Jesus and the healings he was preforming. Crowds began to gather to hear Jesus speak and preach. Jesus healed the blind, the deaf, the lame, he forgave hookers, he befriended Tax Collectors, He raised Lazarus from the dead. His ministry began to grow. The leaders in power began growing jealous and threaten by this Humble man of God. So they paid one of Jesus Followers, a man named Judas to betray Jesus with a kiss. After this Jesus was arrested, beaten, stripped of his clothing, forced to carry a cross , hung by his hands and feet on that cross in front of his mother and friends, cursed at, spit upon, betrayed by many of his followers until his lungs collapsed and he died. Just moments before he died- Jesus cried out,” ‘Father Forgive them.” He begged for God in Heaven to forgive us in his dying breath out of unconditional love for all human kind. After this he was buried in a borrowed grave because he was so poor. He conquered Hell for us. The bible says, Jesus descended into hell right after his death. Jesus was tormented by Satan. (meaning at the moment of his death, he was truly human and all his divinity was stripped from him. He was separated from God the father and experienced Hell and the torture of it as a human soul) He took our place, our punishment for our sins. After this he rose on the third day. He showed himself to his followers, but before rising to Heaven, to be seated at the right hand of God, the father he sent all his followers( even the ones that haven’t been born yet) a holy spirit to guide them. A inter-voice that teaches us how to live life that is pleasing to God. He also gave his followers a book of life, the Bible so we never have to walk on this Earth alone.
