Life Has Changed…

Life has changed since the days of Lucy and Rikki sleeping in separate beds or it being a huge moment when Dick and Laura kissed for the first time on tv.
I don’t know if it’s the “grandma thing” in me, am I just getting older and looking back on the good ole days or has our world really fallen farther away from God’s laws? Have we as a people lost our moral compass?
I watch tv and am appalled at the strong sexual innuendoes, disrespect, sarcasam…on daytime tv. Even the cartoons my Bella watches.
If we look at the Big 10…how does it show in what our children are learning from tv? Do not lie, cheat, steal, be envious. Respect your parents. Be faithful in marriage. Put God first, don’t take His name in vain.
If you’re like me, at times you think “our world is falling apart”, “our nation is falling away from God”. It’s scary and sad.
Then this week I found a verse that gave me hope
Romans 5:20
“where sin increased…grace increased all the more.”
And so, I pray. For our children, our grandchildren, our nation. And I believe that God is bigger than all this.

About 49andcounting

Hi! I'm a mom, wife, grammy, sister, friend at that ALMOST 50 age!! (Okay, since I started this a few years ago...well, add a bit to 49andcounting!) How the heck did I get here so fast?!? I love, love, love- my girls, antiques, rural America, history, Jesus, junkin,the lake and my Big Boy...not particularly in that order. It's about time I change this profile a bit. After a year or living in our 5th wheel in beautiful Pennsylvania, My Big Boy and I are back to the Kansas Prairies. And there's just nothing like "Home Sweet Home". Hitting the Big 50 has its own unique, well...let's say...blessings :) So come along, laugh with me...cry with me...praise God with me...and let's do this 49andcounting thing, together!
