Happy Mothers Day: Who Is The Biggest and Best Mother of Them All?

Is it the mother of invention? Is it the mother of Jesus Christ? Is it your own mother? The answer I think is all of the above.

Isn’t it time we started honoring our mothers all year long instead of just on one special day of the year? Mothers Day is coming. Have you been honoring and respecting and loving your mother every day of the year to get ready for this big event?

It seems to me we ought to show some appreciation for how we got here granted that God’s fine hand is imprinted on our very conception. Without our mother’s cooperation and nurturing love we wouldn’t be here.

What about all the life lessons our mothers have taught us? Shouldn’t she get daily credit for teaching us about life and love and having faith and God?

I think it is time to stop taking mothers for granted. Those of us that are old enough should know better. Let’s not forget how we got here and whom we have to be thankful to for the blessings of life.

So let’s remember our mothers, our faith, and our God, and give thanks for being alive. Let’s give thanks for all the bandaged fingers and tears wiped away from insult or hurt when we were growing up. Let’s not forget the caring and kindness. Let’s not forget our mother’s faith in God and in us, and the moral compass she provided us with.

Let’s not forget those of us whose mothers have passed. We have no one to celebrate Mother’s day with except our wives and our own families. But we do have our cherished memories. We can remember special times. We can remember a mother’s love, and so can our children.

So if your mother is still with you whether it is in memory of fun times past, or in the appreciation of this special day to celebrate our mothers, let’s make the most of this opportunity to consecrate the greatness of our mothers and the mothers of our children.

Let’s not forget our mothers and our children’s mothers: not on their special day, and not on every other day of our lives. Let’s celebrate.

Sex and Religion: having faith in both

Please feel free to use this article as long as credit is given to the resource box.

Keywords: God, Faith, Sex, Religion

There are some things people learn from their parents and some things they learn in church, but learning about sex is usually accomplished via the self-study method. We just have to have faith that what we learn about sex is appropriate and in keeping with the teachings of God.

The good part is that most of us have a natural proclivity for procreation, and thus are following in the footsteps of God. After all He did make all of us in His image, didn’t he?

I don’t mean to sound blasphemous, but having sexual feelings seems to be a natural instinct, and you know whom we got those from. Thank God there is no reason to believe we are doing something wrong when we have sex. It is nice to know that on the contrary we are doing God’s work and populating the planet.

Don’t get too happy just yet. We still have to account for the use of prophylactics and the proliferation of same sex coupling. I don’t think either of these things were part of God’s original plan.

In spite of all our good intentions, we humans manage to mess things up once in a while or at least deviate from God’s plan. Maybe that’s why some of us are called deviates. But I prefer to concentrate on what comes naturally both in my religious beliefs and in my sexual habits. It makes it so much easier for me to have faith in God and myself that way.

Speaking of having faith, when was the last time you viewed having sex as a religious experience? Makes you stop and think doesn’t it? If we concentrate on the religious aspect of having sex more of us might enjoy it more or at least feel less guilty about doing it. We might even come to accept it as a normal part of life.

Don’t you want to be normal? If you do you are going to have to learn to channel your sexual impulses to adhere to the will of God as each of you interpret it. That shouldn’t be so difficult, should it?

I don’t know why an activity that we all seem to enjoy so much and which evidently is a religious experience should cause so many of us pain and stress. Maybe if we had more faith in God all we would be left with is the pleasure of the experience of doing God’s will.

How To Stuff A Watermelon Into A Kumquat

Okay, I admit it isn’t going to be easy, but if we have enough faith in God it can be done. Let’s start by stripping away our inhibitions that keep us from using our imagination. That’s better; you are starting to get the hang of this I think. You are beginning to accept the principal that in God’s world all things are possible.

I am not looking to make your life more difficult, but there are a lot of things we cannot visualize because we don’t understand. We sometimes find it hard to have faith in God because we cannot see or understand Him, but we know in our hearts that He is there never the less.

It is difficult to envision a big watermelon being stuffed into a tiny kumquat, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t possible. All things are possible if we have enough faith.

What we need to do is to strip away our inhibitions and use our imagination. As with all things that require faith, this will mean that we will have to accept that which we cannot see. Do not fear peeling away your inhibitions and using your imagination, we are all striped naked of our preconceived notions and fears in God’s eyes.

Maybe what we have to do is to start with the seed of an idea. Maybe we have to start with accepting God’s will as a given. Maybe we have to start thinking of the watermelon as nature’s seed conceived by God.

If we start to think about the watermelon as a seed, we can begin to imagine that we could stuff it into a kumquat. Then it would only be a matter of faith and miracles to ascertain how big the watermelon could grow before the poor little kumquat burst.

I think if we start to have the proper perspective about our faith in God, and lean to accept His presence on faith, then all kinds of wonderful visions and miracles will become possible.

Perhaps it is not such a giant leap of faith from a watermelon in a kumquat to peace on earth and goodwill to all of God’s children. We are all God’s seed and we need to have faith in our Maker. We need to open our hearts and lean to believe. We need to nourish the seeds in the garden of His grace. We need to acknowledge the miracle of nature that God has given us.

How To Make Money Selling God’s Stuff

That’s right, there are a lot of ways to make money selling the word of God, and doing His good works at the same time. Is your faith strong enough to help you earn a lot of money in the service of God? Let’s check out a number of ways you can make money selling God’s stuff. It may seem like a miracle when you discover how easy it is to earn money working in God’s way, spreading His word, and doing His good works.

There are a lot of not for profit religious based organizations out there that need fund raisers. In many cases they pay commission, and in some cased they provide a draw against commissions earned. Commissions usually range between four and six percent. Earnings may vary from approximately $25,000 to $100,000 plus a year. You could be making money and doing something for a good cause at the same time.

Many religious organizations conduct their own fund raising activities. A short list of the organizations involved would include:

1. Catholic charities
2. Lutheran Ministries
3. Catholic Relief Services
4. Church World Services
5. St. Jude Charity
6. Christian Children’s fund
7. Habitat For Humanity
8. American Jewish Charities
9. Mennonite Global Communities
10. United Jewish Philanthropies.

In addition to these groups you will also find a myriad of not for profit charitable organizations that are affiliated with various religions organizations such as the Red Cross and the Salvation Army that combined raise billions of dollars on an annual basis to do God’s work. You can help them and help yourself at the same time. Don’t be shy. Contact these organization’s human resource departments and tell them you would like to become a fundraiser for them, and find out how to apply. If you have no experience you might want to start by offering your services on a volunteer basis to get some on the job training.

Participating in fund raising activities is not the only way to make money doing God’s work. Some people become members of the clergy and or start their own churches from which activity they derive a living. You can become a member of the clergy online for free. You can also start a church online and establish a Website to solicit donations for your church. Check our,, and for appropriate resources. There are many more. While you are looking them up on google take a look around. The earnings potential here is almost unlimited

Still other people make a living selling religious memorabilia or collectibles such as crucifixes or menorahs. Some work for big companies who manufacture these products, and others have their own retail or online stores. Have you ever heard of Angel Bracelets or faith-based Magic Pills? Check out and as product resources.

A number of people earn their living writing and publishing religious books and articles. There is always a thirst for knowledge about the words of God and His meaning. This is evidenced by a number of Websites that all promote the word of God in many different ways such as,, and Many newspapers also have a religious or faith or spiritual column. Review what they have to say, put some samples or clips of your writing together, and send them off to the proper person. Whether you e-mail or use regular mail be sure to get the editors name and spell it correctly. This is not the place for something like, Dear Sir. It wouldn’t hurt to ask if there is something you could research for them to break the ice.

In addition to all of the above, promoting major religious holidays such as Christmas, Easter, Passover, and Hanukah through the sale of Greeting Cards, Decorations, and Specialty foods has become big business. This has created employment opportunities for many people both in the manufacture, distribution and sale of God’s stuff. Websites to check out are,, and Salaries in this field although varying widely are known to be above the national average for comparable employment.

You can develop your own resources online by searching on google or yahoo under terms like, religious articles, not for profits, church products, specialty foods, religious charities, and religious Web sites.

If your inclination is to earn a living spreading God’s word and doing good works in His name there are many opportunities to do so. You have to start by analyzing the nature of your calling to do God’s work, and see if you can measure up to what the Lord will require of you. That’s right, it is not enough to use God’s name, you have to believe in what you are doing if you expect to be successful. You will have to have the ability to communicate your feelings for God to the people you come in contact with and are soliciting.

In other words, before a person can make others believe in God, and do His good works, and make good money doing so, one has to have faith in the power and mercy of our common Lord themselves. You will have to believe that what you are doing is moral and ethical and in the best interests of God and yourself and the people you serve; otherwise it would be blasphemous.

How can you expect others to buy God’s stuff from you if you don’t have faith in God and his words of kindness and caring yourself?

Don’t miss this opportunity to work with God and do good works and earn good money at the same time.

Don’t miss this opportunity to build a career in the service of the Almighty.

Don’t miss this opportunity to work for God. Not only will you be rewarded in Heaven, but also you will receive financial rewards right here on earth selling God’s stuff.

Please note that earnings from selling God’s stuff will vary widely depending on the effort and amount of time you devote to doing God’s work, but the potential is there to make a substantial living if you just have faith in God. He does work in mysterious and unfathomable ways, and helping us humans make a living seems to be one of them.
