I hope to pay it forward in whatever way God has planned for me.
I was really...not down this morning...but I had pity going on. I was watching this Netflix documentary on teens who have life sentences and it makes me want to cry. I think the Lord put it on my heart but my heart always goes out to them, prisoners in general and especially death row convicts.
I don't say this to say that they never deserved imprisonment but I always hope for their freedom. They are still human beings, after all. Yes, this is controversial. No, I don't mind having this opinion. When the Lord moves you a certain way, it goes beyond words and human reasoning.
I feel for the suspect and their family as well as the victim (s) and THEIR family. I get feels for the whole thing.
I am not pro-capital punishment either. Again, it's a human life. HUMAN. It's someone God made and still very much loves, dearly to His heart, so that's what I take in about it.
It's also why that previous Pal Walker video made me want to cry. R.I.P. because it was a on very real-life level for me.
But God has such intense and wonderful plans for our lives. To contemplate someone being locked up at 16, until they die of old age, to REALLY take that in as though you were living what they have to live, it is a very, very big deal.
I take to heart the Scripture that we are to remember prisoners as though in prison with them. I think this has to do with the way I feel about them.
I hated being locked up for a month in a mental institution, which is just like jail, refrained from the outside world with limited calls and visits. Lack of freedom to some degree inside. This is also a part of it. I couldn't imagine decades, for myself or others.
I don't say this to justify myself to anyone. I'm just explaining why I feel the way I do. I don't need to change it.
God Bless, Jesus Loves, Lives, Saves. All Glory, Praise, Thanks, and all things be to God on the Highest forever and ever in Jesus Name, Amen! God is Able!
May God use these feelings to bless me in Jesus Name, Amen!
12:48 p.m. Hope to write in the Dream Doctor today. So far I've played neo and updated my Single Woman blog and had pasta earlier. I really want to get back to that documentary though. I don't want to be on the computer all day.
1:48 p.m. Finished that, then updated my Netflix queue.
4:24 p.m. Went up to the thrift shop again. Got a craft book for April's Mom, and a photo editing book for me. I got some discount chocolate at the dollar store and ginger ale at a convenience store. After seeing April and Rob in bed when I got home, just now, and wanting to fall asleep myself earlier this afternoon, one thing seems obvious: We seriously need a nap. But first...chocolate.
|In the little book corner of my favorite shop, once again. :)|
8:44 p.m. I just woke up to the cat in bed with me lol.
9:19 p.m. I had ravioli and mozzerella, followed by a mini cookies and creme hershey bar. Mmm...chocolate.I was also watching Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2. But now...going to watch the newest episode of SPN! Woot!
12:27 a.m. Supernatural was great. Like, oh my God! Chuck returned! AGGHH!! :D twas' wonderful. Then Rob and I spent the past couple hours surfing Youtube. Now, we both just want to chill. God Bless, Jesus Loves, Lives, Saves. All Glory, PRaise, Thanks, and all things be to God on the Highest forever and ever in Jesus Name, Amen! God is Able!
