There have been SO many stories in the news recently which focus on the subject of  infidelity.
We are constantly bombarded with pictures in magazines and on television of celebrities and political figures who have been caught in the act or have admitted to being adulterers. And ,by all means, YES, adultery is a sin! But personally, I am not particularly interested and don't feel the need to be informed of each and every infidelity connected with a public personality. ENOUGH ALREADY!!!
I certainly can sympathize with the pain inflicted upon those people who have been affected by this sinful act.
Most of us have felt the sting of infidelity in some way at some point in our lives. Whether we have seen our married friends deal with it or relatives or even suffered a more close up, personal  experience with it.  Any way you look at it.....IT'S UGLY!  People are ALWAYS  hurt!   The worst among these are the children of those involved. Their lives are forever changed. In most cases their parents will separate and eventually divorce leaving the children with  lifelong, irreparable damage to their sense of stability in their lives.
AND I am just TIRED of seeing  the pain and embarrassment of celebrities and their loved ones who have their dirty laundry being aired on some tabloid clothesline! I hope that I am not alone in this way of thinking.
I wish that people would just stop purchasing magazines with these stories and stop watching television shows pedaling this kind of  smut! This stuff should NOT be news. Do people really want ring-side seats to watch the pain and suffering of others simply because they are famous or related to a celebrity? I hope NOT!!

And be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving one another,
just as God also forgave you in Christ.

Above is a photo of the Tree of Life, which is the heart and central focus point located within the
Animal Kingdom theme park in Orlando Florida.  I feel these days as if my life is a lot like the branches of this tree. Stretching out and being pulled in many different directions all at once. There simply are not enough hours in the day to get everything done. I know there are many of you who can relate to this. And... OH YEAH it just keeps getting better! THIS  JUST  IN.....NASA says that the Earthquake in Chile has moved the planet on its axis and Yippie!  Now our days have gotten even shorter! Just what I need!
I always swore that  I  was not gonna be one of those "Soccer Moms" whose kids were extremely over scheduled. Kids should have time to just BE kids. Well...I should have known better than to look down my hoity toity nose at those other moms...cause here I their shoes!  My two oldest(1 & 3rd graders) are on soccer teams with practices two days a week (6:30-7:30pm) on school nights. And of course the practices couldn't happen to be on the same nights! OH  NOooo! So we are left driving 4 nights a week to and from practices. And to top it all off, my 3rd grader is taking part in a school play with practices after school 1 day a week, and  has two additional  musical auditions/performances for which they practice two days after school.
My first grader takes piano lessons 1 day a week. And then there's the HOMEWORK! Oh and let's not forget the third child. No classes or practices....but it's still early. This one's a toddler. But a toddler who STILL doesn't seem to know how to sleep through the night.And what a glutton for punishment I must be....I started taking a "Boot Camp" exercise class 2 mornings a week. IT IS KICKING MY BUTT!  But atleast my bottom should be firmer soon. LOL   
Put it all together with the fact that I am 43(which=OLD) and now you see why my blogging has diminished significantly in recent months. I have considered calling it quits because I can't seem to find the time to write and although I have 60 followers(yay), the loyal number is quite a bit smaller. But for now I will try to stick it out in hopes that my schedule and/ or my kids schedules will ease just enough to allow for some creative release.
There is an occasion for everything,
and a time for every activity under Heaven:
