the grizzle grist mill

*A little late to posting today. My apologies.

I saw this picture the other day, and it struck a chord in my soul. Sometimes, we work hard to hide the scars we’ve obtained through the valleys of life. Many times, a scar leaves us with the memory of what is broken and marred. Often times, we try to cover the scar with a smile, a laugh or a seeking to remain in the shadows, thinking somehow, if the scar is never seen, the wounds and the pain will magically disappear as well.

I have found this statement to be so very true. “Never be ashamed of a scar. It simply means you were stronger than whatever tried to hurt you.”

Growth, strength and healing is all in perspective. Let truth be your guide. Let love be your light, and let hope be your destiny despite the scars with which you…

STUFFING OUR FACE

I think Thanksgiving should be everyday. Oh, not the turkey, dressing, and cranberry sauce but having a thankful heart. Each night before bed I thank the Lord for all He is, all He does, and who He is, and the one thing I don’t ever want to forget is to thank Him for loving me in spite of all my flaws.

With the holidays, (I hate Christmas being referred to as a “holiday,”) but with what we refer to as the holidays; Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years, so many of us are caught up in the traditional baking, gift shopping, and party’s that it may be difficult to focus on writing.

I have found this to be true the last few days. There’s just too many distractions, places to go, things to be done before the mad crowds hit the Malls and stores. I refuse to shop after Thanksgiving!

It is also a time of year that can be very difficult, so for those of us that are reminded of childhood pain and suffering or are grieving losses of loved ones, there is hope and we can be thankful for our Lord and Savior that understands our pain and is faithful to bring us through.

Maybe writing in our journals will help if we list those wonderful things that the Lord has done and be thankful we have Him as our Healer and the One who will dry our tears and get us through.

My suggestion is to do what makes you happy, be it serving others in a soup line, eating a Hungry Man turkey dinner while watching cartoons, or cooking a huge Thanksgiving dinner. Be thankful for all the mercy and blessings the Lord has showered us with.

Me? I am thankful that my roommate loves to cook. She’s cooking a big dinner and I’m eating it.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone. We’ll get back to writing after our tummies are full.

Once Again

the grizzle grist mill

Once Again

Your face reminds me of the pain

Your smile retains the brokenness

Your voice prods the gash deep in my soul.

Just when I think I’ve grown past, I hear your laughter within

Just when I feel I’ve moved beyond, I see your hand holding on

Just when I believe I’ve overcome, I touch a memory in the forgotten mind

I wish I could just stay angry forever

I long to see the payment for your crime

I yearn for the day when justice divides

Yet, He draws me back to unconditional love

He reminds me of His unyielding mercy

He calls to my heart to gracefully forgive

Not for your sake, but rather, for mine

Once Again

Penned – MG – 11/14/19

This is quite an old song, but it so eloquently describes the wounded heart. ❤️

All we have to do is reach out to Him and He will take the shame, the guilt, and all we have hidden in those dark places.

John Hopkins Psychiatrist: ‘Gender Confusions Are Mostly Driven by Psychological and Psychosocial Problems’

John Hopkins Psychiatrist: ‘Gender Confusions Are Mostly Driven by Psychological and Psychosocial Problems’

Dr. Paul R. McHugh, the Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry at Johns Hopkins University and former psychiatrist–in-chief for Johns Hopkins Hospital, who has studied transgendered people for 40 years, believes that patients suffering gender dysphoria need psychological care – not gender reassignment treatment.

“I think their mental problems, often depression, discouragement are the things that need treatment,” Dr. McHugh, who has argued that it is a scientific fact that “transgendered men do not become women, nor do transgendered women become men,” told The College Fix in an interview published Tuesday:

“I believe that these gender confusions are mostly being driven by psychological and psychosocial problems these people have. That explains the rapid onset gender dysphoria (Brown University Researcher) Lisa Littman has spelled out.”

Because their problems are psychological, many people who become transgender find that they no less troubled after the change, he says:

“It would explain why many of the people who go on to have treatment of their body discover they are just as depressed, discouraged and live just as problematic lives as they did before because they did not address the primary problem.”

Also, since so little is known about the effects of the hormone treatments, medical professionals providing them are, basically, just experimenting on their transgender patients, McHugh tells The Fix.

Dr. McHugh predicts that, once people realize the harm it’s doing, transgender treatment will be viewed with regret, much like the eugenics movement.
