We are women and we have rights

We are women and we have rights

 March is National Women’s History Month, consequently for rest of this month, I will focus on issues that are important to my sisters (and the brothers who love them).

I would be remiss if I did not begin this conversation by stating the obvious.  During the last few weeks, a national “back-door” debate has been taking place about abortion and whether women continue to be the property of men.  Yep, while very few people have out-and-out said the “A-word,” the focus on abortion is a primary issue.  You see, in order for a woman to have an abortion, a sexual encounter must have taken place that resulted in the fertilization of an egg.  Because this fertilization process requires a man, men have historically believed that they have a right to the fruits of their implantation.  In fact, in many cultures and religions, a man can “plant” multiple seeds, producing multiple babies and this process is considered a sign of virility, power, and status.  The more women and babies that are produced, the more “manly” a man would be perceived as being.  Women, and indeed the children that they birth, were considered property.

Peace Blog compiled by Joy Mosley

On 23 February 2012, Khader Adnan broke his sixty-six day hunger strike after reaching a deal with Israel's Justice Ministry.  Soldiers had arrested Adnan on 13 December and Israel had ordered him detained for four months but never charged him with a crime.  The next day, he declared a hunger strike to protest Israel’s policy of administrative detention.  As people involved with the campaign calling for the release of Adnan told us, he was “dying to live.”

Where is your heart located?

For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also (Matthew 6:21).

“Location is everything!” This term has often been repeated in business conversations. Something as simple as the side of the street a business is located on can determine its traffic pattern, and this subtle difference could be the distinguishing factor between the success and failure of that business. In matters of the heart, location also plays a very important role. Because you cannot see what is in a person’s heart, you must look to what come out of it to determine its treasures and values.

Today will be a quiet day!

 

What do we do when we get overwhelmed? How do we deal with the stress and the pressure that each day brings? Every day, a little more pressure is added to our emotional reservoir. Every day it gets closer to capacity. Without some way to reset our emotional clock, we are time bombs waiting to explode. We must learn to reset our emotional clock and refresh our spiritual reservoir, and because our brain is like giant computer, it must be reset as well.

Man vs. Woman, ending the war of the emotions

Man vs. Woman, ending the war of the emotions

Men and women battle emotionally. Although they were created for each other, why do they so often war with one another? Where do these emotional battles begin? All emotional battles begin from within and the internal conflicts create external disagreement. Because of this, understanding the inner workings of man and woman helps to make sense of the outer struggle and end the war of the emotions.
