  1. HappyChristian added a post in a topic: Jeny Lyn's Dad   

    Jeny Lyn asked for prayer for her dad. He is pretty sick and he is unsaved.
    Jeny can't get on OB right now, so I told her I'd post her request.
    Please be praying for him.
    Thanks.

    I've mentioned before that we are moving out to Washington state (finally! after years of waiting!). Anyway, to make a long, boring story short:
    The time is drawing nigh. We have only the house between us and the move, and that seems to be beginning to happen.
    The request? Please pray that things can be expedited and that we can get going asap. We had wanted to be there already,  to get the garden in. Obviously God had other ideas. Now that things are moving, we'd like to head out by the middle of June. Yes, that is quick...but God can do it!
    Also prayer for wisdom, safety, and work once we get there would be greatly appreciated.

    Here's an answer for you: if you're back with BroMatt's approval, then howdy and welcome. But as OFP cautioned, circumspection might be in order....If you really don't know the reason for your previous banning, mayhap you should pm the mod who banned you or pm BroMatt and ask.
    It might behoove you not to bait the mods...
    Anyway, welcome back.

    I think the "house creepers" are people who present an alternative to a woman's otherwise seemingly boring life. 
    Feminism is a biggie. It started way back with the message that women don't need men. Well, in many ways they don't - but in many ways they do, also. And this began appealing to girls who were being taught in school, on tv, in song ("I am Woman, Hear Me Roar"), by example, and, yes, even in some pulpits that women could do anything men could do. And so they began doing it.  Caution here: I do believe that some men over react when a woman has an opinion and dares to voice it...just because a woman does not always agree with her husband does not mean she is being unsubmissive...methinks sometimes men can be too trogloditish and it makes women frustrated and easy prey to the "kinder, gentler" house creeper.
    TV has done a lot to indoctrinate both men and women with the faulty ideas that exist. The mocking of men while lifting up women as all-wise has contributed to the house creeper's victory. After all, if a woman is stuck with a less intelligent man but "intelligence" comes down the pike, why not go for it? (Rhetorical question there...please don't think I'm advocating leaving a husband)
    The Internet has also contributed. I love this forum, and I love interacting with folks. But consider this. All of the forums, blogs, social media, etc. CAN BE a form of "...wandering about from house to house; and not only idle, but tattlers also and busybodies, speaking things which they ought not," which 1 Tim talks about...this attitude leads to vulnerability on the part of a woman and leaves her open to house creepers on the Internet. We all have to be so careful.
    Music has contributed greatly to this as well. First it was secular music that taught us that women did not need to answer to their husbands or fathers. Then it was the soft, pretty "Christian" music that taught us to trust in our emotions. Making women even more vulnerable.
    House creepers don't need to come to the door...way too often they are already inside.

    Last night we had pizza with some friends. Tonight we'll be having homemade burgers, just my hubby and me.

    No, it isn't just you...

    That was one of the required books for my hubs when he was in college. I've read it twice.  Very interesting read.
