PUBLIC DISPLAYS...

Something that makes me quite uncomfortable, are public displays of foolishness, it is rooted deeply in me because I can remember many who were close to me, who I loved dearly were known for ‘showing out’ in certain situations. Usually, a family reunion, funeral or some such…because for a public display or foolishness, you need an audience…
There are many who consider me to be boldly outspoken, and I am at times, not as much as I once was, but sometimes…however, I am going to say anyone I know would be hard-pressed to find a time when I just acted up, showed my natural behind in public…don’t do it, leave a horrible taste in my mouth when others do it…and I know so many who take pride in being able to loudly and publicly dress people down, their little bit of fame…
Last night I was at a meeting and much of what was discussed involved money…and there are those factions who believe everyone is a thief and they want to accuse, call names and point fingers so that everyone know how they feel…even if nothing supports what they are saying other than the fact that they are saying it…horrifying…I spent a good deal of an hour quiet, even praying, and at time straight up horrified that people could stand in public forums and say rude and uniformed stuff without provocation…horrified…
My heart actually broke for them and I continually prayed, Forgive them Father, because they know not what they say…because surely, if they did, they wouldn’t have said it…and I also found myself also praying, ‘Let her or him, who is without sin, throw the first stone…’ which was entirely appropo..because so often when we point the finger or publicly accuse others of something, we privately know our own mess and as such should probably be a bit more circumspect in what we say or do…God knows I have my share of stuff to deal with and I decided a long time ago, that if I spend all my precious time on that I would have almost no time for anyone else’s stuff…publicly or otherwise, as my grandma used to say, ‘Before you talk about the trash in someone else’s yard, make sure your own has been swept clean…’
BE PEACE~

Angelia, The truth of your words speak volumes. Many people need 5 minutes of fame to validate themselves by putting others to shame in a public display. My madear used to call this "an outside show to an unfriendly world." It's disgusting behavior exhibited by inferior people that will never reign superior. The truth is the truth, but its often watered down with irrelevant factors. Realism doesn't mean being spiteful & hurtful. Peace & Blessings Angie:-))))

My Grandmamma says, a theif doesn't like to see another theif with a long bag.
Therefore, they have to show up somebody before somebody show them up.
