Well, it has been so very long since I blogged last. And so very much has happened in that time. Some of it heartbreaking, some of it mortifying, some of it potentially good.
My daughter ran off to New York in July, with my two oldest grandchildren. I say ran off because in doing this she defied a court order that says she could not move more than 50 miles from where she lived, here in Texas. This is not the first time that she has done this sort of thing, ignoring court orders, but apparently these orders are passed down for the express purpose of being disobeyed, since no one seems interested in doing anything about it.
My mom passed away towards the end of August. I wasn't able to see her in the last years of her life. Partly because of problems between she and I, partly because of other family members interference. I wasn't even notified when she passed and actually didn't find out until after she had been buried, and then it was on a social networking site when someone posted something about it. I have discovered that there is most likely some shenanigans that went on concerning her burial, some family who may have done some illegal things for financial gain.
My mom left me a house and I moved out of the nursing home and into it at the end of Sept. Yet things cannot be settled concerning the house until another family member probates the will, which they seem disinclined to do. I have reason to believe that they have also done some illegal things for the benefit of themselves and other family members and probating the will, will bring these things to light.
The house is in a little town where the powers that be have run a muck. In the short time that I have been back I have witnessed more of what I saw and experienced, when I lived here last, at one particular city facility. Again, illegal activity which no one seems interested in doing anything about. And this particular facility has already started giving me problems because they know what I stand for.
I spoke recently with another family member, who will soon be graduating from Law School, about these things. They seemed disinterested in it all as well. Their comments lead me to believe that they may have some problems with their chosen field since they had nothing but excuses on behalf of these people who break the law, especially those they are also related to. It saddens me to know that they don't have a clear stance on right and wrong. Especially knowing that they hope to go into the prosecution of criminals.
In this world what is illegal today could be legal tomorrow. I have witnessed this many times in my own lifetime, the changing of laws to suit one group or another. But the Bible's teachings are very clear, and unlike the laws of man, they are unchanging.
