Here’s a new website I’ve been working on. It’s about homelessness, topics related to homelessness, sightseeing around Bellevue, Washington state and other things. I’m trying to get this going as a Christian to add to the voices that are concerned with the growing number of homeless people and increased crime in our area.
Called the eastside, we are on the east side of Seattle and it seems the homeless are migrating and being moved into coming shelters for the homeless in Bellevue and spread around King County.
It’s a new site so I’ve barely gotten started but feel free to have a look and come back to this site. I will add a domain later after I wait the 60 days before I can use it. It will be located at www.socializinggrace.com
Imagine you have a blanket or a sleeping bag, a tent, a shopping cart full of stuff you’ve collected, and cardboard to sleep on.
What this means is, you don’t have a refrigerator, a cell phone, a TV, a bed, a car, a bicycle, a computer, a desk and chair, a bedroom, a comfy couch, a microwave, a bathroom, fans or air conditioning when it gets too hot, food or cooking utensils.
Instead, you are dirty, sweaty, exhausted, afraid, hungry, constantly uncomfortable, not sure where you’ll sleep, no decent place to use the restroom, are shunned and rejected by people, you sit for long hours every day, maybe you watch traffic, and wonder how you will keep living this way. Maybe you panhandle, use drugs, drink alcohol.
You have no friends and you trust no one because you’ve been robbed so many times, your life is tough. You want your privacy and space and to feel normal again.
Your life is small. Very, very, small. You barely move sometimes because you have nowhere to go anyway. Your mind has shrunk, literally, and you have thoughts of killing yourself, you’re in so much misery and pain all the time. What do you do, where do you go? Cars drive by, people walk by and no one notices the pain you’re in. But you can’t think your way out of a box.
Your mind isn’t functioning, you blankly stare out into the street, you have nothing to live for.
It’s a small, small, and very lifeless world. You are on your way to death.

Isn’t this the truth?

What a blessing to be called! Not all who are called will listen but hopefully they will be persuaded to seek help from the Lord Jesus Christ!
Aren’t we blessed who know the Lord, and isn’t your life easier with a “friend” you can speak to in prayer and in everyday language when you need help?
Who else can you trust as much as the Lord?
He is willing to help – just speak His Name and ask him for the help you need.
He is listening to we who reach out to ask him for help.
Praise God! I love Jesus today and forever!

It’s been a bit of a roller-coaster ride going on the carnivore diet but I’m glad I did.
There are so many health benefits of eating carnivore that I’m toughing it out until I get fully adapted to this way of eating (woe).
I’ve gone through many symptoms of detoxing with this woe and I’m still coping with some. For instance, today I’ve been feeling tired for a few hours several times during the day but that’s a normal side-effect of adaptation.
(Remember, this is my blog and you can share it on social media using the buttons on the blog page but I do not give permission for this (or any of my posts) to be cut and pasted onto another blog or website. This is called plagiarism and it’s stealing someone else’s original writing.)
A little discomfort is worth gaining optimal health and that’s the journey I’m on.
I just wanted my readers to know what’s happening to me and why I’m not ready to start posting regularly right now.
God bless you all, I hope you are seeking the Lord each day and can put your trust fully in Him.
Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. ~ 1 John 4:4
Too bad I have to tell people not to copy my content but I am spelling it out so there’s no confusion. Just stop plagiarizing my content. I resent it and it’s not Christian to steal intellectual property. It’s not okay for anyone to steal my (or anyone’s) content. Just stop.
I made some tallow (beef fat) to cook with. It’s a small batch but my video shows how it turned out.
For the few of the blog posts I’ve written lately that don’t seem to hold much importance (ahem, aren’t I so humble?), I have discovered lately that someone has been swiping my blog posts and their titles and posted them on their own blog site!
I’ve been PLAGIARIZED! It is illegal to plagiarize someone’s work. It is theft of someone’s intellectual property. It can cost millions in a lawsuit (see below for more on this).
past tense: plagiarized; past participle: plagiarized
take (the work or an idea of someone else) and pass it off as one’s own. “he was fined $6,000 for having plagiarized the song”
Do you know how many musicians have lots many millions of dollars from websites making a killing off their work? There has been a huge fuss made over this in past years! How can someone be so ignorant of the fact that plagiarism is a lie? Even as a school child you know you have to do your own original work; that stealing is not okay. So how does a “Christian” website get off on stealing my blog posts thinking I won’t find out?
You can do simple searches, for example, of portions of someone’s writing, or even pictures from someone’s website and do searches on where they end up! Help me understand this ignorance. I notice they also have credit cards on the bottom of their site I remember seeing where they collect money for something but to use my writing as a way to draw more people to their website is unpardonable.
They have removed one blog post, then this morning I found another that I have asked them to remove. I will look for more since they do not have any brains to select all my blog posts they stole and remove them on their own. I have ways to make them ashamed and they will suffer if they continue to do this on my behalf. Maybe I’ll have to “out” them.
They sound like criminals in the making and I hope they are genuinely ashamed of themselves for stealing people’s work!
I’ve been away from this blog for awhile, then I couldn’t log in. My apologies for being late to respond to some comments.
I’ve been “doing carnivore” now for 11 days, giving up coffee today and making the changes that are recommended for carnivore eating.
It is quite a change from other food plans I’ve been eating, mostly keto over the past several years.
Today I’m seeing some positive changes; getting up early, sleeping regularly, feeling in a good mood once I get up in the morning and motivated to do some exercise, although not training, just gentle exercise.
I am inspired by Anthony Chaffee, M.D. the most who said, “Fat makes you lean, strong and healthy” in one of his videos.
As I am looking for another job (in the Human Services sector) I may be distracted by the work it takes to look for work, and change my eating habits.
I have changes coming up I can depend on: God will provide an income, I may be moving at the end of the year to get some space from the woke ideology here just outside of Seattle. I have been researching other parts of Washington state. I hope to find an area where there are more conservatives and less crowding in Washington that is near a store the provides meat to continue my carnivore way of eating.
I wish you an enjoyable day today and pray that God is providing for your needs today, as always. Take care!
