Facebook Generation

I am apart of a generation that has to tell everyone they know (or cyberly* know) what they are doing at all times. What they believe, their frustrations, their political views are all exposed on 1 website for thousands to read.

I would have no problem with this except for when I see my 'christian' friends slander those who don't share same beliefs, and call people worthless, leftovers, say 'they are taking up room'. This burdens me.

I worry that my child is going to grow up in an even more technological world where people slander even their brothers and sisters for a single disagreement. I don't want his peers to rob his innocence, heart for God, and goodness, I want him to always stand for justice and righteousness!

I hope my son is filled even now with such a love for the homeless, immigrants, muslims, budhists, prostitutes, drug addicts, christians, 'leftovers'. I hope he is filled with the Glory of God even now as a baby that when these people see him, Gods love is pouring out of his smile into them. I pray that he will NEVER judge people without the love of God, he won't even joke about those that have less, but instead extend grace, mercy and love.

My Generation makes me so sick, the things they say about people that aren't like them, or the crude jokes they make. I want to be apart of a righteous generation, abandoned to the Lord, beckoning the bride-groom and preparing themselves for such a day.

Proverbs 4:23-25
23 Watch over your heart with all diligence,
For from it flow the springs of life.
24 Put away from you a deceitful mouth
And put devious speech far from you.
25 Let your eyes look directly ahead
And let your gaze be fixed straight in front of you

I must edit myself. I don't justmean my generation ages 15-30. There are quite a few 40+ yr olds I know on facebook that I am ashamed to be friends with when they post some status', If anything they should be our examples encouraging, loving, and compassionate towards others specially those that are lost.

Put others before yourself, love others more then yourself, and try not to be so dang selfish. People are people, they all have feelings and God desires them no matter what their current religion, sexual orientation, or race that they are He loves them and wants them to be apart of his Bride.

Birthday Wish List

It's been so long since I've posted!

Lets see...Julien has 7 teeth now, He hasn't started saying MUCH but occasionally he slips Ima or Abba (mom and dad in Hebrew).
He is getting so big!
His 1st birthday is coming up and during our busy schedule Julien and I got together to talk about his birthday wish list!! Here are just a few items he would LOVE to have!

Bruin Drum of Instruments


*Little Tikes Tap-A-Tune drum

Fisher-Price Laugh and Learn Learning Workbench


Lamaze My First Toolbox


We will soon (hopefully) be purchasing a toddler bed for Julien. We could really use some Toddler bed rails such as these !

We would also love one of these! For safety in the tub

Skip Hop Moby Bath Spout Cover

We also need a Toddler Car seat, so if you feel so inclined to help us out (we don't expect anyone to buy the whole thing themselves!) we would be so blessed!

12m-18m baby clothes are ALWAYS welcomed. Summer-fall clothing would be best.
So basically Julien loves music especially drums, cars, tools, books and loud things we don't mind the loud toys so feel free!!!

We love second hand things because they are cheaper and sometimes better! So please feel free to shop on craigslist, or give us your hand me downs!

Julien will be so blessed by just a simple Birthday Card too, we love sentimental things :), so if you feel so inclined let me know and I'll send you our address!


If you haven't gotten Julien anything yet, I want to add veggie tales dvds, or cds, and a CARS Seat (its a Julien size comfy chair or couch).
