The Law is teachnically right

MARYVILLE, Tenn. – Hotaru Ferschke just wants to raise her 8-month-old son in his grandparents’ Tennessee home, surrounded by photos and memories of the father he’ll never meet: a Marine who died in combat a month after marrying her from thousands of miles away.

Sgt. Michael Ferschke was killed in Iraq in 2008, leaving his widow and infant son, both Japanese citizens, in immigration limbo: A 1950s legal standard meant to curb marriage fraud means U.S. authorities do not recognize the marriage, even though the military does.

Ferschke and his bride had been together in Japan for more than a year, and she was pregnant when he deployed. They married by signing their names on separate continents and did not have a chance to meet again in person after the wedding, which a 57-year-old immigration law requires for the union to be considered consummated.

“She is being denied because they are saying her marriage is not valid because it was not consummated — despite the fact that they have a child together,” said Brent Renison, an immigration lawyer in Oregon who has advised the family.-Taken from

The law is technically right the couple did not meet again after their marriage to consummate it. Of course I believe that this case is an exception to the rule, because there where extenuating circumstances that where out of both individuals control. 

The fact that the couple had a baby was in their control and could have been avoided with a little waiting. the coupe should have waited to get married and then have sex. They should have gotten married before he deployed instead of jumping the gun and actually trying to have a baby from they where actually committed to each other in marriage.

This is a lesson for all of us. Wait to get marriage and them have sex and then children. There is old nursery rhyme that goes like this

____________ and _____________ sitting in a tree

K-i-s-s-i-n-g First comes love

Then comes marriage

then comes

Our Dirty Little Secret

Well it is all out now!!!!!

Hey guys we women have a dirty little secret that I want to share with you. Are you ready for it? Are you sitting down? You have to sit down for this one. Ok, here goes….

WE CAN GET PREGNANT!!! OMG what a shock!!!!

Yes it is true we can get pregnant with or without birth control. See it is Biology 101. Refer to it the next time you see a sexy single lady flashing a smile your way.

Oh and we can get pregnant even when we are not trying to. It is something that just happens as a result of sexual intercourse. Remember that, the next time you are about to…
 hop in the sack
take a roll in the hay
rock the boat
do the horizontal tango
sow your wild oats
take ride on the wild side

I can go on but you get the point. So don’t be shocked and complain when you sleep with a woman that is not your wife and she tells you she is pregnant and asks you for child support.


Tha Samaritan Woman Part 2

John 4:5-20
Eventually he came to a Samaritan village of Sychar, near the parcel of ground that Jacob gave his son Joseph. Jacobs well was there; and Jesus tired from the long walk, sat wearily beside the well around noontime. Soon a Samaritan woman came to draw water and Jesus said to her, Please give me a drink…

Jesus said to her, “Everyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again.

 The woman said to him, Sir, give me this water so that I won’t get thirsty and have to keep coming here to draw water…..

He told her,Go, call your husband and come back.”

I have no husband, she replied.

Jesus said to her, You are right when you say you have no husband. The fact is, you have had five husbands, and the man you now have is not your husband. What you have just said is quite true.

 When the Samaritan woman asked Jesus to give her the water that will make her thirst no more, I can guess that she was excited and ready to make a change in her life. I can imagine that she was tired of trying to fill the void in her heart and tired of always feeling hopeless. So when Jesus told her about eternity, she thought she was ready to receive it.

However, Jesus asked the woman to go and bring her husband. Now you are probably asking yourself, what her husband has to do with anything, but Jesus was trying to make a point. You can’t move forward if you don’t clear up the junk from the past. It will come to back to haunt you every time.

So the woman’s attention was drawn to the problem she has. She  had five husbands and now she lived with a man that was not her husband. We can all be sure that this woman had a lot of emotional baggage that had to be dealt with.

What is your emotional baggage? What is keeping you from feeling fulfilled? What is nagging at you and making feel depressed?

The Old Woman Who Live in a Shoe

There was an old woman
Who lived in a shoe
She has so many children
She didn’t know what to do
She gave then some broth
Without any bread
She whipped them all soundly
And sent the to bed

Read the nursery rhyme above and picture this woman, she is a mother, a sister, a daughter. If you think you have never seen a woman like this. Go to your local high schools, go to the nearest low income housing building in your community, go to your local super market.There are women all around who look this woman. They are living in poverty and having children for men who do not want the responsibility.

It is time we acted as strong women. We need to tell teenage girls that it is not ok to get pregnant out of wedlock. We need to tell them to avoid risky behavior and we need to tell them that they deserve more than a guy who will profess love and sleep with them. Then walk away.

Think about this, are we really showing our young women how to love themselves to the point that they will not let anything or anyone come in the way of them finding physical, emotional and spiritual success?

A Life Style: Courting Part 2

Courting is life style. The main purpose of courting is marriage. The people who decide to court and are successful at courting make purity a life style. It is a way of living that includes healthy eating habits, a healthy spiritual life, healthy relationships with family members and a healthy relationship all of the people the person comes in contact with.

When a person decides to court, they must choose a partner who is a willing to court as well, otherwise, it will not work. The partner has to understand what courting is and understand the benefits of courting.

The benefits of courting include:

-Clear thinking without the emotional cloud involved in a sexual relationship.
-Friendship which is very important for a good marriage
-No risks of pregancy or STD’s
-Socialzing with other like minded coupes, which will be helpful for acountability and healthy friendshis once yo are married

The Samaritan Woman

John 4:5-20
Eventually he came to Samaria village of Sychar, near the parcel of ground that Jacob gave his son Joseph. Jacobs well was there; and Jesus tired from the long walk, sat wearily beside the well around noontime. Soon a Samaritan woman came to draw water and Jesus said to her, Please give me a drink. He was alone at the time because his disciples had gone into the village to buy some food.
The woman was surprised, for Jews refuse to have anything to do with Samaritans. She said to Jesus, You are a Jew and I am a Samaritan woman. Why are you asking me for a drink?
Jesus replied “If you only knew the gift God has for you and who I am, you would ask me, and I would give you living water.
But sir you don’t have a rope or a bucket, she said, and this is a very deep well. Where would you get this living water? And besides are you better than this our ancestor Jacob who gave us this well? How can you offer better water the he and his sons and his cattle enjoyed?
Jesus replied, “People soon become thirsty again after drinking this water. But the water I give them takes away thirst altogether. It becomes a perpetual spring within them, giving them eternal life.
Please sir the woman said give me some of that water! Then I will never be thirsty again and I won’t have to come here to haul water.
Go and get your husband, Jesus told her. I don’t have a husband the woman replied.
Jesus said you are right! You don’t have a husband-for you have had five husbands ad you aren’t even married to the man you’re living with now.
Sir the woman said, you must be a prophet. So tell me why it is that you Jews say that Jerusalem is the only place to worship, while we Samaritans claim it is here at Mount Gerizim, where our ancestor worshiped?

A Virtuous Woman

Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies… Favor is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised. Proverbs 31:10, 30
