Ain't No Fair But The County Fair

     This world can be so hard sometimes.  I have the mindset that if a person does what they are supposed to, are honest, and try to be good then they will be treated fairly.  That ain't so!  Not in the world today.  To me, justice should be based on what is "right".  That's not always the case (no pun intended).  So many times the one who lies, cheats, steals, and does nothing that includes a conscience has an easier time. In this world, anyway.  The older I get the more I realize that "what is right" doesn't matter.  It should, but it doesn't.  My dad has said it so many times that we all joke about it now  "there ain't no fair but the county fair". 

     The Christian Atheist had a chapter on believing in God, but not thinking He is fair.  I think He is fair.  This world may not be at times, but we don't know right here, right now how He settles the score.  You know the saying, "wait until your father gets home", well, we may not know how justice is served until we get home to our Father.  We depend on each other here to get justice and that is what isn't fair.  For instance, if you go to court, the judge tries his/her best to make a judgment based on what is right in front of them.  They don't know the complete story.  They often times don't get the truth which makes it impossible to decide what is "right".  At the end of the day, they take their robe off and have their own life with their own problems and injustices.  God can make a true and fair judgment because we can't hide anything from Him.  Words can't be twisted, we can lie but it doesn't do any good because He knows the truth, and we can't manipulate His thinking with strategy.  I have probably completely confused you in what in the world I am getting at.  My point is, I have injustices in my life and I don't know what the outcome will be on this earth, but I can sleep at night and be at peace because I know my truth and 100% clear conscience and no matter what happens here it will be dealt with when it really counts.  I don't know for sure how it works, but I don't think we get to have an attorney present on Judgment Day. 

     I have called this blog therapy and I just needed to say what I did.  On a better note.........  It's TGIFF.....Thank Goodness It's Friday FINALLY!  I absolutely love this song.  They have been playing it a lot on the radio and I heard it when I took Stratton to school and now it is stuck in my head, but that's okay it's a good song!

"Good Life"Woke up in London yesterday
Found myself in the city near Piccadilly
Don't really know how I got here
I got some pictures on my phone

New names and numbers that I don't know
Address to places like Abbey Road
Day turns to night, night turns to whatever we want
We're young enough to say

Oh this has gotta be the good life
This has gotta be the good life
This could really be a good life, good life

Say oh, got this feeling that you can't fight
Like this city is on fire tonight
This could really be a good life
A good, good life

To my friends in New York, I say hello
My friends in L.A. they don't know
Where I've been for the past few years or so
Paris to China to Col-or-ado

Sometimes there's airplanes I can't jump out
Sometimes there's bullshit that don't work now
We all got our stories but please tell me-e-e-e
What there is to complain about

When you're happy like a fool
Let it take you over
When everything is out
You gotta take it in

Oh this has gotta be the good life
This has gotta be the good life
This could really be a good life, good life

Say oh, got this feeling that you can't fight
Like this city is on fire tonight
This could really be a good life
A good, good life

Hopelessly
I feel like there might be something that I'll miss
Hopelessly
I feel like the window closes oh so quick
Hopelessly
I'm taking a mental picture of you now
'Cuz hopelessly
The hope is we have so much to feel good about

Oh this has gotta be the good life
This has gotta be the good life
This could really be a good life, good life

Say oh, got this feeling that you can't fight
Like this city is on fire tonight
This could really be a good life
A good, good life

Oh yeah
Good, good life
Good life
Ooh

Listen
My friends in New York, I say hello
My friends in L.A. they don't know
Where I've been for the past few years or so
Paris to China to Col-or-ado

Sometimes there's airplanes I can't jump out
Sometimes there's bullshit that don't work now
We all got our stories but please tell me-e-e-e
What there is to complain about
