All our Sites

If we the people We realized that there is a need to have resources at your fingertips that help us all get more involved in positive activism. We’re always working to make this site better and hope to throw in some real life stories, our concerns and ideas to make our country and our lives less frustrating and scary.

I have branched out into a few other areas other than If we the people. I think there are a lot of people who have a variety of interests. Hopefully, we have something for everyone to participate in. All of our sites depend on my acceptance of all comments. If I perceive anything that would hurt others, I will not approve it. So you are safe in posting. If you need an email subscription, just click on the contact button at the top of this site and let me know what you need.

So just click on any of the sites, come over and visit us. Join one, or all, of the sites, and let us know about your site or blog.

Living on the Borderline in Bipolarville  This site deals with sharing our unique paths through mental illness. I just started this site, so it’s a work in progress. I’m very excited about people contacting me already with an interest in these subjects. So come on over! We’ll sort these things out together. (Note: Back in the early 2000’s I was an assistant manager for a 1200 member bipolar disorder website. I’ve dealt with a lot of different people, so hopefully that will comfort you some. lol)

sharinHislove I created this site in an effort to share with people who need a little extra love and encouragement. We all need that, huh? Started in 2006, this site has reached many people around the world from really unexpected places. Over 270,000 visits confirms that the encouragement and inspiration that we generate and share really is helping. We hope you will join and share your thoughts with us.

The Wildlife Art of Sharon Rule Well, this is just my fun little site that mostly just has my oil paintings that I do to support my daughter’s African Wildlife Sanctuaries that provide education for the children of the wildlife workers. I’m not such a great artist, but my heart is in the right place, lol.

Prophecy Unfolding This may not be interesting to many people, but it is especially interesting to me since I’ve been searching this topic since I was  12 years old. Hey, it may not be terribly exciting, but it certainly relates to what’s going on in our world today.

PRAYER CHANGES THINGS

 

colourful-leaves Prayer Changes Things

We must not forget the main purpose of this website … bringing back into focus that PRAYER CHANGES THINGS.

The activity for today’s event for the Women’s March on Washington was to send postcards to our representatives and senators. I sent emails and fb messages instead.

However, the first thing I did, was PRAY for healing for all the issues that are going on in America. I believe that this is a priority. PRAYER, indeed, does CHANGE THINGS.

I commend the ones who are representing us who are sticking to the principles of caring for their constituents. I encourage all of them, and all of us, to remain positive, prayerful, and loving.

Together, we can make changes for the good of all Americans. Just look around, you can see that our efforts are making a difference!

Our Support and Prayers

Hi friends,

As you know, this site is based on We the people, praying, being involved in active ways, and supporting in a positive way the people who are in our government. Regardless of whether we agree with what they are doing, we have a responsibility, and it is a privilege, to have our voices heard. If we disagree, let us reach out to those we disagree with, rather than complaining.

Considering the world situation is escalating even as we write, it is more important than ever to cover everyone with prayer. God is in charge. He will always be in charge. And some of what is happening is to cause a Great Awakening of our perspectives and put our minds and hearts on what is really important each day. I ask you to join us in prayer daily. Prayer Changes Things!

Are we angry?

 

angry baby in green

If so, let’s figure out how we can deal with this together. Action will help us combat our initial reaction of anger.

1. We have to admit that we are angry.

2. Define our anger.

3. Ask ourselves the questions, “Is the anger harming us?” and “Is there something we can do about it?”

4. If there is something we can do about it, find resources to use so that we positively channel the anger rather than letting it drive us.

5. While addressing the issues, be sure to take care of ourselves first.

6. Balance our lives with: relaxation, fun, and/or anything that distracts us from the feelings of anger.

7. If the issues making us angry affect others, contact them, and then join with them to resolve those issues. Encourage and thank them for their efforts.

8. Never give up.

9. Keep going forward.

He will heal our broken heart

Heal your broken heart

 

Today, I think a lot of us feel like our hearts are broken on many levels… especially in our government.  Its apparent lack of caring for the brokenhearted, sick, poor, needy.  I pray for all in our country, especially those who are suffering in any way.

Let’s stand together as we love and pray for each other.

Anti-Semitism

Definition of anti–Semitism

  1. :  hostility toward or discrimination against Jews as a religious, ethnic, or racial group

Definition of Anti-Semitism

My Note: As followers of Christ, we should never show hatred or judgment. Whether toward Jews or any group or person, this is anti-Christian.

Planted Seeds

My note:

As we plant seeds by expressing our concerns in what is going on in our country right now, let’s not lose heart. Be patient, and pay attention. Our seeds will grow. We have to continue in our fight for freedom.

We must always . . .

 

We must always:
Be uncomfortable amidst injustice;
Disquiet in the face of wrongs; and
Disturbed as unfairness persists.

We must never allow bigotry to be easy; or hate to normalize
We must remain defiant
We must resist.

More dangerous than hate is apathy
More dangerous than bigotry is silence
And More dangerous than injustice is the acquiescence to it.

Let us be resolved:
To be vigilant in the defense of others;
To be restless in pursuits of justice;
And let us never grow weary in the work of love.

Mental Health Reform

(My note) Education regarding mental health is desperately needed for both the person with the disorders and also their families. I am pleased to see how much Chris Murphy invests himself in these issues and many others that will help our country progress.

The Senate votes on our bill next week. Here’s how it will help millions of Americans.
