Thank you, Mom

I want to wish all of the mothers a Happy Mother’s Day.  I am so thankful to have my Mother give me great love, support, and advice.  She certainly is the original Wise Diva. I have learned a lot about love and relationships from watching her and listening to her.

What is the best advice you ever received from your Mother? Did you listen to her?

I was talking to a friend who told me that her new boyfriend thinks she would be a great mom. She was really flattered that he saw her in that way.  How important is it to men that women show/have a desire to be a mother?

Happy Friday!

Well, Sassy1s…all you have to do is create some more “fixing appliance” type tests. If he passes them, marry him…IF he asks.

M is for the million things she gave me
O means that she’s only growing old
T is for the tears she shed to save me
H is for her heart is pure as gold
E is for her eyes of love light shining
R is for the right which she’ll always be
Put them all together they spell M-O-T-H-E-R, a word that means the world to meeee!!

Exactly, Rock. I know I have recounted the story of the guy that I was dating who two years into the relationship became a religious zealot. While he was “in the world,” I was good enough to fornicate with. Once he got saved, I was not good enough to marry. {kanye shrug…..}

SexyCool, exactly. Breaking up just because you don’t want to be with a person any more is one thing. But doing so after yall done flipped and flopped each other every which way from here to Timbuktu and one decides now that they want to “live right” you are not who they want to live right with.

That’s a hard blow for any one to take.

SC – what happened?

See Boo is confused he quotes scriptures, praying for everythang under the sun and still wants to do it. Then he wants to pray for forgivenesses after doing it. Get upset when I looks at him funny.

It wasn’t that hard of a blow for me to take. I wasn’t interested in that lifestyle. Plus, after he got “good religion,” I could see him becoming more and more opinionated and judgemental. And like I ended up telling him after he called himself chastising me for something that I’d done, “Look, buddy, only God can judge and last I checked you were not the Father, the Son or the Holy Ghost, so you can miss me with all that.”

Needless to say, that was one of the last times I heard from buddy.

I goes to church and loves God but I knows right from wrong. So doing it and then forming a two person prayer circle after sex is not right in nobody eyes.

Sassy1s – he was into that pentecostal/holiness movie. It probably didn’t help that his pastor was his father. Their extreme and literal interpretations of the scriptures did/do not fit my belief system. It was their belief that because I was divorced, anyone who married me would be committing adultery and that we were going straight to hell.

(Plus, considering that all of their women dressed like the “Country Mouse” – well….I’m too flossy for that…lol)

Purple, that’s a simple case of “good enough to bed but not good enough to wed”.

Heck if I am with someone having good sex while not married imma want that same good sex while married so why not marry Mr. Good. The Lord never said just because you start living for him you have to forego physical pleasure. Yeah you have to give up your rotation and settle down with one person but he never said not to enjoy having sex with your spouse.

Sassy1, tell ole boy either marry you or else. I know you said you are not ready but throw that at him and watch him show his true colors real fast.

Anybody that convicted of committing an act is not going to keep endulging in it. He would have asked you to be his wife long time ago.

He wants his cake and to eat it too. Tell him wedding cake is the only cake you are interested in.

SCool – Folks trip me out getting holy after they, as my fabulous mom used to say, have “done everything they are big enough to do”! I’m not perfect by any stretch, but I’ve tried to live a decent life all along. Suddenly I’m not holy enough for you since you’ve suddenly found religion. Miss me with the judgement!

Just because I am guilty of doing something does not make it right. However just because I stopped doing it does not make me any better than anyone that still does it. It just makes me having chose a way of life apart from that. And just because I tell you that you shouldn’t do XYZ does not make me judgmental of you.

Just because I laid with Liz’s dad before we married does not mean I will not teach her that she should wait until married. I can’t make her but I can tell her.

Yep, Slim…and “Let he who is without sin…..”

But you know how folks pick and choose which scriptures to live by. Like buddy’s mom, she was mean as a rattlesnake during the week. But on Sundays, *wudn’t nobody holier* (lol)

Well all that is going to happen there is he is going to keep “wearing you out” until he finds someone he wants to settle down with and marry. It’s obvious you two are on different paths, why keep giving yourself to him and he doesn’t want you.

Matthew: And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.

Mark: And he saith unto them, Whosoever shall put away his wife, and marry another, committeth adultery against her.

Luke: Whosoever putteth away his wife, and marrieth another, committeth adultery: and whosoever marrieth her that is put away from her husband committeth adultery.

Roman: So then if, while her husband liveth, she be married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress: but if her husband be dead, she is free from that law; so that she is no adulteress, though she be married to another man.

Um…yeah, Light – I’ve noticed how you come by plugging your blog and not contributing to the discussion. Not interested.

So nice how you picked out only specific verses and not the entire passage with which context can better be ascertained.

By the way, if I were going to go with the “literal” interpretation of those versus. my husband left me for a stripper. So HE committed the adultery. Now, can I marry TheDude and not go to hell for doing so? (Please note my intended sarcasm and my restraint in telling how much of my ass to kiss. Oh well…blew that.)

Ms Yvonne teaches me things my mama could not. My mama is a hard working woman but worked so hard so much my brothers had to take care of me. Ms. Yvonne opened my eyes to things I had only saw on TV. We see art shows, festivals, jazz music concerts and we travel every year. Ms Yvonne showed me how to be a lady and not a tomboy.
