Ephesians 4:29...

~ Posted on Thursday, April 11, 2013 at 7:06 AM ~

You know how disgusting it is to have an individual of the same gender as you saying, suggesting, agreeing and even acknowledging something said about you when they have no idea or never even bother to hear or understand or find out your side of story?

You would think that the person, being a woman, married with husband and kids would understand your point of view, or at least, try to emphatise what you go through... but sadly, that's not the case. I don't want to elaborate further as I think the person reads my blog too but I really do hope she will get the meaning of this post which I meant to direct to her.

James 4:11 (NIV) ~ Brothers and sisters, do not slander one another. Anyone who speaks against a brother or sister[a] or judges them speaks against the law and judges it. When you judge the law, you are not keeping it, but sitting in judgment on it.

So, you... Unless you have ever lived a day of your life as a stay-at-home-mum, never have anymore income, never have to take care of your children 24/7/365 YOURSELF and understand how energy sapping it is, do not open your mouth to even say that I am living my life easy.

Ephesians 4:29 (NIV) ~ Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.

Leave me and my family alone and focus on yours.

Thank you...sometimes we need to be reminded of important things. Wishing you a blessed season!


unfortunately, this is the norm in our society
we've been taught from an early age that we have to "win" - have to be the best, smartest, prettiest, funniest at whatever... and if we're not, all we have to do is go all Mean Girls and make the other person look bad. it's a crappy way to live and we all need to rise above it. we need to be united, working together towards the common goal of love. it's tough to get there when we're constantly worrying about who next will throw us under the bus for their own personal gain. and even more tough when everyone has learned these same things from the media and the people around us. wish i had the answer! i still fight the urges daily to slander or backbite and i have to pinch myself and remind myself of the bigger picture... hope things work out for you and that this other woman will see the error in her ways and strive for love, too.


cheer up!
