Where is the love?

Ok, I get it's all about love.  All you need is love.  Love can change the world.  The power of love.  Love don't  cost a thing.  Love grows (where my Rosemary goes).

Love.  So, to quote Telly Savalas, "Who loves ya, baby?"

Is it more loving to agree with somebody you believe is making a poor decision, a decision to do something that you know will not only be unsuccessful, but will cause incredible financial harm for their present lives and their future.  Something you wouldn't sit back and watch your own children do without warning them of .the dangers, not only for themselves, but for their family.  And you don't say anything because you know disagreeing with them will cause them to cry and break off all contact with you?  So now you have kept the relationship and you are watching this family self-destruct in front of your eyes and you smile and give them the "thumbs up" signal (Like) and say, "I'll pray for you."


Is it more loving to disagree with somebody you believe is making a poor decision, not only for themselves, but for their family, and risk making them cry and break off all contact with you?  You tell them because, even though they aren't your blood relation, you are older and wiser and you know the risk and reward of the situation they want to place themselves into and you just want to warn them of these dangers.  And, you know they hate your guts, but you keep praying for them to come to their senses and act like adults, even though this isn't what they want to do.

Who is showing the love?

490.  Cooler, cloudy day with a chance of rain
491.  A bushel of tomatoes in my freezer and 25 lbs of beets in jars
492.  The good feeling of accomplishment
493.  Peaches fresh from the tree
494.  Knowing that you cannot screw up God's plan, no matter how hard you try

Who loves ya, baby?


  1. tough situation!!  I know..I did it both ways..and never made anybody happy...good luck!!
    prayers and more prayers...that is the best.

  2. i think in the end you have to be does not exist in lies....and if i agree with the bad decision i am an accomplice....

  3. You and your tough questions/scenarios! If someone asks my opinion, I give it to them straight. If not, I generally keep it to myself unless the person belongs to me in a near and dear sort of way. Having said that, there have been times that I've felt like the Lord was leading me to share something w/ someone, and I've stepped outside of my comfort zone to share it. Whatever you do or don't, I recommend praying, first.


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