Lately, I have found that Christianity is not very popular. I mean, in the past, I've known it wasn't because of the droves of so-called "friends" that dropped me like a hot potato when they heard me mention anything related to Jesus or church or my faith even.

I go to the store with my Little Princess and find that we get stares (because of how we dress) as though we've grown two heads. It's funny to a certain extent and I believe that as time goes by and we get closer to the return of Jesus, it will only get worse. I live life as simple as I possibly can. Although we live in a nice house situated in a good neighborhood, we, by no means, live a life of luxury.

Our family is blessed that I am able to stay home and take care of my family by doing what needs to be done. I enjoy marketing my products and meeting new people on a regular basis. I don't have many friends that are close but the handful that I do have are very special to me.

One day I know that all of this will be worth it. I see my daughter growing up in an environment where she has learned that the most up-to-date fashions are not necessities and that to dress modestly shows others that she has self-respect.

I am amazed by how many men, though they call themselves Christian, are so lost when it comes to respecting women. It just boggles my mind to know that these people are out there and it makes me sad.

There's this particular Christian Forum that I visit where this guy thinks he knows so much more than others and he judges and disrespects the rules of said forum and nobody does anything about it. He's annoying more than anything. I kind of feel sorry for him because he spends what seems like hours on that forum criticizing and sticking his nose where it doesn't belong. It's sad that someone has so much time on their hands that they have to be so mean to others just to make himself feel better. He needs a lot of prayer. It's a sign of the times, I guess. It's people like him that give true Christians a bad name.

I believe that is called finding the splinter in the other person's eye while they have a plank in their own. Also, a husband should love his wife as Christ loves the church. Did he not give his life for the church? By disrespection his wife, he is actually disrespecting his own body. Maybe before judging others, he should remember that he will also be judged the same way, according to the Word.

Keep up the faith. Remember Jesus said they hated him first.
I had a pastor once who said when people point fingers at others they usually have three fingers pointed back at themselves. It sounds like he could use lots of prayer.
Keep living your life the way you feel led.
