Sometimes I just sit and shake my head. Seriously? I don't get it. Some of the choices that people make - attitudes that prevail - I DON'T understand.

Do people really think there are not consequences for their actions? Perhaps it will go away if I ignore it long enough....?

Do they really think that band-aid will stop the hemorrhage?

How did entitlement get so mainstream?

What happened to personal responsibility and accountability?

And why do people feel like they can cuss at someone because they missed the pick up day for their consignment items?


I * don't * get it.

I do feel like I'm talking like a grandma some days: "When I was your age, we used to.....", we didn't have this or that, and we used to be polite. I'm too young for that.

But things have changed rapidly - in my adult lifetime, even. I wonder sometime how things will change in my kids' lifetimes. I am sure in ways that I cannot even imagine...or want to.

A part of me hopes that people will be come outraged enough to change. To repent. To say, "WOW.... I've REALLY messed this up..." and start again. To realize this path is NOT working.

There is a way. Perhaps that is why it's called the "narrow path"...

May I find it....

"Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it."
Matthew 7:13-14

I'm with you. I don't get that either. That's why it's so important to talk with our kids about these things all the time.
