This is against the Fourth Amendment in my opinion.

Northeast High School student David Duren-Sanner is facing criminal charges for brining a dangerous weapon to school after officials found a fishing knife in his father’s car, which the student drove to school, the Daily Caller reports.
Duren-Sanner’s father is a commercial fisherman who works on the west coast and left his vehicle for his son to drive to school.
Last Thursday, school officials announced a “random lockdown search” and randomly selected the vehicle to be part of it, according to a report from WTVF.
“I was like, ‘Sure, no problem.’ I don’t have anything to hide,” Duren-Sanner said. “And he said, ‘Do you have anything that we might need to know about?’”
The student told officials they may…

This may sound strange and off the wall to some but here I go on this thought on modern medicines. I am to the point of not trusting conventional medications or hospitals for that matter. And here is why I say this.
The FDA says that raw milk is a hazard, and has clamped down in some states with even the drinking of it. But the same agency says it is ok to take in artificial sweeteners, and over the count pain medications. Which I have since learned that the two previously mentioned items are not as safe as what the FDA and the government would like you to believe. As artificial sweeteners are neurotoxins, and common pain killers are known to cause serious liver damage.
Then to bring up the whole issue of GMO’s. As no serious research has been done to prove it is safe to eat GMO’s. Nor has government or health officials have taken a direct stand against these frankenfoods or the political control the companies have over the FDA. Plus now Obamacare is going into full enforcement which gives the government even more control over your medical choices, and desires.
Take for instance, I went to the hospital in December due to slicing my thumb. During that time I requested financial help from my local hospital. The thumb had a cost of over a thousand dollars, we don’t have insurance as I don’t work and my husband isn’t at this time in a full time position. So the money needed to come out of pocket at the time of service. Meanwhile I was bleeding seriously and needed the attention.
Fast forward to February, now the hospital is refusing to help me at this time unless I explain why I am not working at this time. Not only that but they wanted from my Naturopath Doctor a medical reason on why I shouldn’t be working at this time. I am not working due to personal choice, as well as the limited job market in my area. My question is why does the hospital need to know this information about me.
Now extend this whole personal issue to what is happening in Boston with a fifteen year old girl, who is now considered a ward of the state. As the hospital claimed that the girl was endangered by her family, as she had a rare disease which the hospital debated if was an actual medical need. Now the girl is in a physic ward, and some really bizarre policies on care have come out about this case. If you would like to learn more on this go here.
I firmly believe after this and many other things in my personal life, that natural and wholesome health care should be used BEFORE conventional medications. As between the government getting more involved in out health issues. And the nasty side effects from the prescribed drugs that the real medical needs are not being met. Since I have been using alternative medicine I have lost weight, have been able to cut back on my prescribed medicines and generally feel a whole lot better.
What are your thoughts on medicine and the way things have been handled in this topic? Have your tried alternative medicines? If so what was the results from it? Does the medical institutions and government need to be involved in personal choices? Let me know what you think.
“For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” Matthew 6:21
Things have a hold on us all, some more then others. We place objects high on our list of things to hold onto and keep. Some see these things as so important they will surround themselves to the point of hoarding things. Others hold onto jobs, or status with the very same hold as the ones who hoard. These worldly objects will control our lives and take away that which is most important in our lives. Which brings me to what I want to write about.
At one time I collected Ty Beanie Babies, and had the whole collection. I thought they were worth a lot and clung onto them. Holding them more near and dear then I really should have done. Things like this will take over our lives, and turn our love and attention from what is most important. And that which is the most important in any Christians life is God. And in my case it was the take over of the Beanie Babies, they were everywhere and I had friends and family members ask if my home was a gift store more then a house.
Of course finally the bottom fell out of the Beanie Baby market and I was shocked to learn the true value of the little stuffed animals. They didn’t matter to others as much as I had thought. So then I was stuck with the little stuffed critters. I had no idea what I was going to do with them, as they had a habit of gathering dust and breeding in the closet. Finally after several years I decided to take them to the thrift shop and let another enjoy the things I had joy from.
When it comes down to it, a relationship with God is more important then material goods. As God has bigger plans for us if we get pass the physical things in life. Just like the Beanie Babies, things gather dust, and fall apart. But if we focus on the plans God has for us then the real jewels of life will come out. Yes, there are times life will be hard on us but if we keep our eyes fixed on God we will get through the bumps. God will be there for us always, and this is free, no maintenance required.
