Lori Wishes Josh and Anna Happy Anniversay

Well, Josh and Anna Duggar celebrated their anniversary recently. Yesterday Lori, the all knowing, self appointed spokesperson for God, praised Anna for standing by her man. She praised the Duggars and their love for the Lord, yada, yada, yada…Then why do they talk about their dumb, suffocating rules more than Jesus?  Legalism much?  I believe Jesus called people like them, Pharisees.

Don’t get me wrong. I am all for forgiveness and working out problems in a marriage. However, in this situation, Anna is either being incredibly naive or just plain stupid.  Josh is only sorry he got caught.  He would likely still be continuing his bad behavior if he had not been busted.  People seem to forget that.

Lori harps on how much God hates divorce. Well, sure it’s not His plan, but neither is harming children.  If Josh does anything to those girls, God will also hold Anna accountable for not protecting them.  I commented on Lori’s blog that Anna let Josh come home too soon if she was going to stay with him.  It takes a long time to rebuild trust. Someone had the audacity to say that Anna could not be in charge of when he came home because that would put her in authority over her husband.  I just could not believe that comment.  Any clever responses would be welcome.

What amazes me is the fans that dismiss his actions as being a child.  Um no, 14 is old enough to know better and even be tried as an adult for some crimes.  I will give him some understanding and say that his idiot parents are to blame as well.  If Josh had been allowed to interact with other girls and not have to witness his pervert father hump his mother constantly, he may not have taken his normal teenage curiosity to his sisters.  That said, even a 14 year old should not be curious about a five-year-old.  Fortunately, the second scandal with the porn star did not indicate that he was still into little girls. So I suppose that is a good thing.  I just hope Anna is watching him closely.

Life is a Roller Coaster

Life is such a roller coaster.  Yesterday brought heartbreaking news about one situation and great news about another.

My dad has been in ICU for about 3 weeks now.  He went in with severe fluid on the lungs and now his kidneys are failing.  They still work for now, but once they stop, he will likely have only a week or two left, but no one knows how long they will keep working.  The doc said my dad isn’t strong enough for dialysis and there comes a point when you’ve done all you can, so he recommended to keep managing the lungs since the kidneys would be the less painful way to go…

On the other hand…

We found out some great news.  My husband and I have been approved for new positions where we work.  We still are not commissioned officers, but it’s kind of like a promotion. We are just waiting on them to find an opening for us.  So yay!

All of this on the same day.
