Defending the faith

Chick-Fil-A, Love Wins, Hermoine in 50 Shades of Grey
Hey, how's a believer to answer back?
Wring our hands?
Spout vitriol on the blog?
Is it enough to believe LOVE will be enough?
Is it fire we need to fight this firestorm?
Or squarely shut the door on all debate and pray it goes away?

Joining G-man on Friday flash 55

485.  The deepest crimson crepe myrtle I have ever seen
486.  A blue bird sitting on the basketball backstop in my driveway
487.  Sunny yellow gold finches flying around my bird-feeder
488.  Bright white begonias blooming outside my window
489.  Purple salvia standing tall next to the begonias


  1. I am a silly girl so for me, LOVE is enough, if it is TRUE LOVE. I know , I know...I am 47 but hey, I found my TRUE LOVE when I remarried. See it happens! I love your 55 just cause it is about LOVE! Great job! Have you a blessed weekend. hugs shakira
    Mine is here

  2. I've decided to conduct myself in the ways that feel true and appropriate to me...and stop worrying about everyone else.

  3. The Beatles said it...
    "All you need is Love"
    Well...I'm not so sure.
    Loved your questioning 55 Happygirl...
    Keep spreading your unbridled joy everywhere...You Rock!!
    Thanks for playing, and have a Kick Ass Week-End

  4. It has fanned quite a flame hasn't it. I say people are entitled to their opinions, but don't expect everyone to agree. We leave with the choices we make each day.

    Have a great weekend

  5. i think in the end you have to pick your battles...the chikfila issue is a dangerous one on all sides...the bottom line is can someone express their beliefs...there are no winners in that...same with 50 shades...its a poorly written book and the bigger deal people make out of it the more people will want to read it...

  6. That cartoon is so funny.  I do think the older we get, we have more to look back on, maybe more to regret, so it's easy to see our mistakes.  There are more of them!  I think we need to re-define "success" and "failure."  Both are temporary, for one.  Both are going to come and go.  Secondly, the world's view of success/failure is misguided, because its priorities are off.  Scripture tells us to do our best to please God, not man.  If we love and forgive, we are successful.  

  7. Love is the only thing that will ever be enough.

  8. I don't know the answer so all I do is pray. I continue to give Chick Fil A business without having any contentious conversations with anyone about the topic.


Comments from my readers bring sunshine to my day. They make me so happy.
