Pity Party 

  

The Urban Dictionary defines “Pity Party” as:

A way of experiencing grief, in which you spend your time feeling sorry for yourself and whining endlessly about how crappy your life is. 

Pity parties can be just for one or for many people, such as maybe your friends and close people, who will try to comfort you or just be there for you while you keep asking yourself what did you do to deserve whatever it is that made you so sad in the first place 
Pity Parties require the proper outfit, which is usually pajamas cause you dont get all dressed up during those feeling-sorry-for-myself moments. Also you should have no make up on or just the one from the night before; hair undone as well. 
It also involves tissues, comfort food such as ice cream; chocolate; potato chips; cookies; cake; and candy. Low fat food is banned 

Alcohol might or might not be allowed (if alcohol makes you go wild, no alcohol should be brought to the pity party in that case since the point is not exactly to have fun). 
The purpose of a Pity Party is to dumpt the pity. 

Music is also very important at pity parties, including songs like “One is the Loneliest Number”, “All by Myself” and any other song that makes you feel like throwing yourself from the nearest cliff.

 

Pity parties usually end after you are done whining or if someone breaks it up. This will usually be a cynical loved one who will not let you drown in self pity and will take you either to have the best time ever, drinking and partying or will just make you crawl out of bed by making you see how pathetic you look and how you should cut the whining and just do something to make things better. ~Urban Dictionary 

Although this is quite funny-A “Pity Party” is one party we should never attend. 

As Momma Joyce Meyer says: 
You can’t be pitiful and powerful at the same time.  Choose what you want to be!

Get Lit 

  
Are you finding it hard to get into the Word of God lately?? Are you too busy or just not able to keep your attention fully on daily Bible reading?

It is my experience and understanding that different versions serve different occasions. 

For example, 

I memorize the King James Version because it’s most familiar to me growing up. I do not read it daily because it is too formal and difficult to understand. However; if I set out to study a particular passage then I might use several different versions. I could also add a dictionary and reliable commentaries to help me accomplish that goal. 

Let’s get real and into my personal space of confession. 

I have always struggled with making time each day to read the Word and really mediating on it over and over. 

Well help is on the way!!

At least for me and my style of reading anyway!! It is different strokes for different folks. 

I discovered……
