Prayer of St. Frances
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace;
where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master,
grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
to be understood, as to understand;
to be loved, as to love;
for it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life.
Are you crazy! Can you help me pay for my son’s college tuition?
Today 7 News of Denver posted an article asking people if they would turn to crowdfunding to help pay for their wedding. I was appalled to read that people have stooped to such level of greed. So I commented with the following:
Never have I ever gotten upset with a post from your station until today! LOL’s. People can do what they want and ask for what they want but it doesn’t mean I have to support it. And if people are living outside of their means and others want to be foolish enough to support it then each party have my blessings. But this post upsets me for many reasons and many of those reasons have been stated.
Why would I pay a $ towards a person’s wedding or honeymoon. It’s their wedding it’s their honeymoon. And its rude to ask people you don’t know for anything let alone something so extravagant as a wedding or honeymoon.
The wonderful thing about gift giving is that it is an expression of love. Love has no boundaries, yet, this act places boundaries on love and gift giving; and removes boundaries from money and logic. It’s another act that removes self-respect from people’s characters. It truly shows how young people these days are being raised with no self-respect. No wonder we have all these senseless killings.
People need to sort through their priorities!
Because there is no commitment in any of this! No commitment on the parent’s part to pay for their daughter’s wedding. No commitment on the groom’s part to pay for the honeymoon. HONEYMOON! Get it! He’s the one that is having the intimacy pleasure in enjoying her “honey” not the public! And if he can’t afford to pay for her ‘honey’ in an overused bed then he should not be taking her hand in marriage!
Listen up needy couples!
Listen up young man! If a woman and her family can’t afford to pay for her a lavish wedding don’t allow them to drag you down with them by asking the public for pleasure money. Take a stand and tell them you want a small wedding you can afford. Don’t you realize they are taking your manhood away when they go begging the public for money? Or, are you a man?!!
Listen up young woman! If a man can’t afford to take you on a honeymoon of your choice then you need to become acquainted to living within his means at the beginning of your and his life’s journey as man and wife. Because if you don’t, I see some dark and rocky days ahead for the both of you! And divorce is right around the corner! Learn how to build your man’s manhood and a future with lasting memories. Instead of building a wedding that will end on a sour note as each of you are feeling to damn with the memories that other people paid for.
Nothing in life worth having comes easy! So stop trying to live like the Joneses.
