This post’s agenda includes three items:

  1. Hope you have missed me. I have. I’ve been in lots of pain; I am not very creative in pain. I have read some on cell or I-Pad but am almost nonfunctional in responding on those media.
  2. I do not know the Lord’s purpose in allowing this valley, but I know there is one. His purpose is my will, like it or not. The only response I believe I have heard from him is “push on” so I take that as just do as I can. Lots of doctoring. ER two times in ten days. But I’m pushing.
  3. Science has become a noble field of “truth” in recent weeks/months, particularly as relates to covid and masks. So I decided I would undertake a study of my own this month; the month of May – Mother’s Day. A conflict has arisen regarding whether or not all men/women/gender of choice, etc have mothers. Some reports are that they do not; that term indicates that only female gender can be a mother but all genders can be “birthing persons” I have researched to the best of my ability given my isolation and painful circumstances, but I have not yet found any person – at least up to the current decade who have not had mothers. Libraries and bibliographers are replet e in naming the mothers of everybody I can find. Of this I am confident in my conclusion: BE IT KNOWN: ALL KNOWN HUMAN BEINGS DO HAVE MOTHERS AND THOSE MOTHERS HAVE UP TIL NOW BEEN FEMALE GENDER. One note worthy exception: The Bible does not name a mother for Adam or Eve. And I guess one could say God was the “birthing person” in their lives, since He formed them and breathed into them the breath of life.

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

    May God’s purpose be all of our wills and may God bless you and keep you. Excellent point about Adam and Eve. The rest of us had mothers.

  2. Yes, I have missed you terribly—so much so I text Kathy to see if she knew if anything was up, or down …as your last comment to me made mention of you being down and doing little to any sitting. I am sorry there is pain— I don’t do well in pain either— certainly not creative as pain tends to be selfish— demanding ones full attention— I wanted to email but from your previous comment, I knew you weren’t on the computer…
    But I am grateful you are pushing on!!!

      Great improvement today. Seems I might have a whole blog to write soon. I have dumped a lot of emails. Generally get to scan first so I would probably catch one from you. Good night, dear Cookie.

    Yes Julie and I have missed you. So sorry you’re experiencing a rough patch and I pray that God will reveal His will for you soon. Our lives are so fragile at any age, but thoughts like yours are very important to get out to those who are confused or wondering about these important issues. So I’m especially happy to see you back if only for a while. Take care of yourself, trust in the Lord and know that your blogging friends care a great deal for you.

      I believe I had a break through today. I’m anxious to blog about my day. Not yet though. I’ve always believed the Lord wants to be our first choice – and he wants to be our last choice. There was lots of stuff in the middle. But….wait for the rest of the story.

    If we add 2 whole lemons to 2 more whole lemons, we then have 4 whole lemons. It is necessary to understand this if we’re making a living selling lemons for a certain price. It’s called basic math.

    …and then there’s lemon pi, the ratio of a circle ‘s circumference to its diameter. That’s where things begin to get a bit nebulous.

    Science taught us for decades that dinosaurs were slow and stupid. And then a branch of science that studied movements in bone and muscles in said, “Wait — you can’t be slow with this kind of structure.” Next was the discovery that they weren’t cold-blooded, and some had feathers (the dinosaurs, not the scientists — but sometimes I wonder). That’s probably why any proclamation of scientific truth is called a scientific theory. I wish that scientists would get the memo explaining the definition of theory, but most are too busy trying to convince people that the word “science” is spelled “god.”

    Just as the way we count a few lemons is always a constant, there are certain scientific principles that have remained true: If you’re a primate, females bear the children. XX, you have a baby girl. XY, you have a baby boy. XXYY, etc., you have a whole bunch of disabilities that go with it. There are groups who want to find a way around this truth. I wonder if there’s a way to use pi to estimate the circumference of a lie? 🙂

    I have missed you, and I’m sorry this is a ‘valley’ time for you. I had to laugh at your little project. The whole issue of gender has become — unfathomable — to me. We’ve always had a synonym for ‘gender fluid,’ though. We called it adolescent confusion.

  7. I have sure missed you! Lifting you up in prayer, asking the Lord to carry a big hug from me across the miles.

      As one PA told me today, they are trying everything but the kitchen sink, but the ‘wonder’ seems to come to my house this afternoon. Expecting a good sleep.

    Oneta, thank you for keeping in touch during these tough times. You remember Corrie Ten Boom, don’t you? Recently, I found a link to an interview with her in 1972. Maybe it will also encourage you.

  9. Faye says:

    I have missed you. SO glad to see your blog. God’s Strength, and Peace. Hoping for a new day to dawn with healing. You are loved.

  10. Dawn Marie says:

    Picked a special hug & a blessing from my heart reservoir, especially with you in mind and am sending your way through His out-stretched grace. May it reign down upon you soon and releave the burden you are currently under. 😘😘😘

  11. So glad to hear from you Oneta. Prayers for you and prayers for peace and healing.

  12. Jacquie says:

    Prayers for you, Oneta! And, very true. God created man and woman, and said the woman would be the one to give birth.
