Longing For A Simpler Time

It doesn't seem like long ago that my 2 kids were little. It doesn't seem that long ago that I was a child. It doesn't seem that long ago that mankind had faith in each other. It doesn't seem that long ago that we basically were a moral nation. A time when life was good and we didn't have to watch every step we made, every word we said, or lock every window and door. WHAT HAPPENED??? Where were we when all this fell apart?

In talking with Jim (he drives school bus in his retirement) about the kids, the school and the bus company, sometimes I want to stand up and scream. WHAT IS WRONG WITH US? It seems that kids have no respect for anyone these days. When I was growing up I would have NEVER dared to talk back to any adult without being assured whoever that adult was, would put me in my place. My kids if they had talked back to someone in authority over them, may not have been touched physically but I would have heard about it, and you can be sure they would have been disciplined. Today kids say what they please to whom they please with no fear of an repercussions from their words or actions. I guess even when my children were young, the trend had begun to let discipline in our lives go. Why did we allow that? Why did we as a people of this nation of this world allow discipline to leave our lives. Why did we allow children to grow up without knowing responsibility? It seems that today, no one wants to take responsible for their own actions. They are so quick to point the finger. That goes from small children to adults.

Where are those who will stand up and say... Be responsible, take discipline and learn from it? I would like to think that if we all banded together we could change the world. But I know that we live in a fallen world, and things are not going to get better, save a world wide revival of God's changing power in the lives of mankind. Even tho I hate how our world has become, I know from reading the book of Revelations, that it is not going to get any better. So, will I just sit back and train my mind to accept these things???? NEVER!!! I will continue to stand for what I think it right. I will continue to pray and I will continue to trust God with my life and the lives of my family. Praise be to God
