How America's 2020 Election is connected to Venezuela SMARTMATIC

  How America's 2020 Election is connected to  Venezuela                                     SMARTMATIC                      I will be make a series of blogs dedicated to Venezuela and how it relates to our current America. My mother and her family are all from Venezuela and I grew up visiting the country many times as part of my childhood. So I will be able to give a broader perspective on it.                       For my first blog related to Venezuela I will show you the connection of our latest American 2020 elections compared to the 2004 Recall election for Chavez, dictator of Venezuela. In 2004, there was a recall election for Chavez. Millions were in the streets protesting against Chavez. So they had the recall election. Interestingly enough, that was the first year that Smartmatic Voting Systems was used in Venezuela. Smartmatic was creation by 3 Venezuelan engineers created and founded in Caracus, Venezuela. How convient for Hugo Chavez that resided in Caracus.  In 1999, C

Understanding Predestination vs. Free Will Through Star Wars                                             I grew up in the 80's and so my childhood was filled with lot of Star Wars movies, toys, etc..     When the  new Star Wars movies came out when my children where little in the late 1990's early 2000s. I was disappointed except for episode 3, which I thought had the same feel of the originals. After watching the new Star Wars movies in the last few years,The force awakens and the last Jedi I am so geeked up again. I have been studying the book of Romans for the past month or so and I came across this scripture that I just was stuck on and I couldn't understand. Romans 8:29...For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his son. I called people I thought would be able to explain it to me and it just was not clicking.  The whole "foreknew" thing was not a easy concept to grasp. The word "predestined" is c

Only God can Judge me.

                                    Only God Can Judge Me                                                                                                  I remember when this saying was popular. I really didn't put to much thought in the statement. TuPac had a song titled "Only God can judge me", that popped into my mind when I was thinking about this topic. I listened to it again to remember the lyrics. I don't agree with all the lyrics but very nice beats!                                                                                       Anyways I was just thinking how people can be on two extreme spectrums of this statement, "Only God can Judge me". One view is that I can do drugs and rob, live like the devil and only God can judge me. That's not the real world, people out there are constantly judging. If I do a crime tomorrow a Judge and Jury will soon be judging me.  I will get judged on my job review for the year. Yes at on

Slaves to Sin

                 Slaves to Sin                                                                          I love allegories and metaphors. I am a visual thinker so images really help me understand things. I recently met someone who has diabetes and had an organ transplant. Things were going very well with the transplant but there came a time where he was under a lot of stress and stopped taking the medicine that helped support his transplant. As a result the organ was rejected. It was his pancreas. He regrets not taking his medicine now.  Back to this story in a moment.     I am reading Romans in the bible and trying to understand the concept of Sin. How even I still sin and get caught up with things of the flesh and I am a Born Again Believer and how in Romans 6:6 It says, For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin, because anyone who has dies has been freed from sin.

Is it ok to be Gay?

                            Is it Ok to be Gay?                                                                  It depends on who you are asking? If you ask your best friend, she may be ok with it. You sister may give you all the reasons why it is good and acceptable to be gay. Certainly social media has given it's thumbs up and has promoted it in movies and tv shows etc..     Although when it comes down to it, does it matter to you who you are asking this question to? If you are asking the question to God. Not the "universe, or buddah, mother earth".  If you are interested in wanting to know what the God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob yeaaaah, that one thinks, then keep reading.                                                                                          First of all the reason, I am even writing on this subject is because I have been studying the book of Romans in the new testament. I am not a super fan of controversial subjects.

The Golden Shelf, All Time Favorite Books!

           The Golden Shelf ~ Life Changing Books    Reading is a love of mine ever since I can remember.  My teenage son loves reading which is weird so it must be in our family DNA! Going to a library is like a sanctuary to me. Quiet and peaceful and full of so many possibilities! I was thinking the other day if I had a golden enchanted book shelf that included the top books that have impacted my life and only ten books are allowed on this special shelf, which books would I pick? Here are my all time ten inspiring books starting from the least to the best book! 10. Uninvited , by Lysa TerKeust I put this as number 10 because it is the book I am currently reading and I'm only 3/4 through the book. As I am reading this powerful book I am already thinking this is going to be a life book. It's a book about rejection, feeling unworthy, and goes to core to find out why and how to overcome these feelings. It's a book to read slowly and study and reflect on. I
