I'm a glutton for punishment. I hate being scared, but yet I have this morbid curiousity with scary things. Jack's adversaries are the scariest. They're scary because they are so close to reality. Yes, these are worst case scenarios, but real threats, nonetheless.
This Sunday is the premier of 24: Redemption. It's not the start of the new season. It's catching us up on what's happened to Jack since the end of Day Six. If you don't watch, I feel sorry for you. You're missing out.

"Excuse me? What did you just say?" I asked, a little taken aback.
She looked at me with these "innocent" eyes and said, "Friggin'."
I said, "Where did you hear that word, Lauren?"
"You say it, Mama."
Gulp. I'm now glancing around to make sure no one else heard her.
"Friggin', friggin', friggin..." Emily shouts from behind me as she giggles.
I'm now trying not to laugh out loud.
I calmly tell the girls that none of us should say that word. It's not nice. It's not appropriate and we all need to practice a little taming of our tongues.
Some people probably wonder what the big deal is about that word. Well, the problem is that it's a euphemism for the real "f" word.
I don't like hearing it come out of my kids mouths, which means it shouldn't be coming out of mine.
You know, my mother told me a long time ago that my children would be miniature versions of myself.
Friggin' kids....they'll prove her right every time. I hate that.

The question was presented by Beth this way:
Could any circumstance (such as an unhealed disease, unanswered prayer, loss of a loved one, an incarceration in a country where Christianity is illegal, or other situations) make you renounce your faith in Christ?
Okay, if I answered this honestly.......probably.
Have you predetermined your loyalty to Christ? Think long and hard about this. I did and it scares me. "Loyal is not something we suddenly are at the flash-moment of testing. It's something we already were that surfaces in the test."
Sisters and brothers, I don't know about you, but I crack under the tiniest bit of stress. My kids act up and I'm flyin' off the handle. Diarrhea of the mouth ensues. An unexpected bill shows up, it's the end of the world as I know it. Panic is my middle name (cue the Austin Powers theme song).
Loyalty is actual preparation for a future event. What are you doing to prepare?

Okay, I didn't stay away permanently, but I still have children and I still have a crazy life, that I need to journal about....so, that being said, I have decided to post only when I really have something to post about. This will not be a daily blog. If you want to read about the goings on in our madhouse check back occasionally....
