Sarah has got to be the worst blog writer, ever.

WTH Nate and Mel's kids going to a PUBLIC LIBRARY?  I thought libraries were a no no in Maxhell.

Poor Calia getting trained in as a tortilla helper.

Sarah honey Christians are not being persecuted in this country.  Go to Iran if you want to experience persecution.

No idea why Arnold would like Teri.

Happy Easter FJ!

OMG, Sarah bought her own car! Her OWN car! I feel like this is a huge step. I also feel like I have no idea where she would even go. Like, apart from that one trip to check out another town

I wonder if it will be laid onto her heart to name the car? Uriah-Marie could be an option.

"Everything looks some brown, although you can see a hint of green. Amazing what some time does to green things up."

We say "greening up" -- and things like "crisping up" when it comes to finding a glasses prescription that makes things look sharper. But "some brown?" Did she mean "somewhat brown?" I'm not even gonna go farther with that.  

I'm beginning to think that maybe she's just really, really tired.  Whatever her head injuries may/not have had to do with that.  It's like me - I've never been real interested in sports.  If you told me I had to play catch every day for the rest of my life, I would,, but I wouldn't care if I got better at it than I am now.  Sarah indeed does not seem to enjoy writing and it's a doggone dirty shame she's still expected to do it.

The Nathan M kiddos are a super-cute group.  Libraries, an aunty making her way in the Nashville music scene, Maxcousins who live in faroff Olathe -- Abby & her crew (!) have a better chance at a normal life than I once thought.

From my keyboard to Heaven's ears.

If Steve reads here, maybe he saw my praising his saying that Christians weren't persecuted so the Maxwells  went back on it. Hi, Steve, Sarah, and any other Maxwells. I have expect him to talk about persecution in his Seriously, Dad? column tomorrow. Maybe they got pushback from the fans who think they're persecuted.

Sarah's hair is browner than I remembered.

They washing a car that says "Jesus" on a sign instead of the front license plate. 

Chelsy and John have been less featured on the blog lately. I think they'll announce a new pregnancy sooner than later.

Here, some stats.  1/5th of the people in that table pic are wearing vests.  1/5th (a different 1/5th) are wearing massive-ass food catchers around their necks.

Thus, Maxwells = 40% Bib-lical In-vest-ment

Sarah wrote, “Spring can’t be hidden, and it will burst forth in even more beauty soon.” and MJB takes back some of the gloom she felt about Sarah’s writing desire. 
Tgsts also a really nice photo of the redbud (?) tree covered o er in snow. 
 

Kansas doesn’t require front license plates snd people use those square inches for self-expression. :)

People like Stevehovah would love to enjoy the USA  being a Christian version of Iran.  Christians aren't persecuted in America for fuck sake.  It was nice to see Arnold & I thought that the pic of Elliott & Ellie was cute.  Also, nice to see that kids visited a public library.

I was so happy to see that Nathan and Melanie's kids get to go to the library! I'm sure they can't just check out whatever they want, but at least they are allowed to read mainstream books.

Why does she say the US is in turmoil?

The only big current event in the US that I can think of is the Chauvin trial, but it hasn't have to do anything with christians.

I’m sure it has far more to do with the ebil, abortion loving Dems being in power than anything having to do with racism and its horrendous fallout.

That library recently lent a lot of support to “Big Sonia,” a film-based Shoah educational organization based in Kansas City, KS.  The Maxwell children quite possibly saw a variety of displays that will have them asking their parents some questions.  (I’m pulling for Nate & Mel and choose to hope that they’re educating their children a whole lot better than was Nate.)

My niece put a couple of those food catchers on her baby registry. To be honest, I'd never seen them before Maxhell - no babies I've been associated with have ever had them. I asked her why she wants them - it was easy to ask an invasive question like that because I am helping plan her baby shower and one of the games is guessing the wrapped baby item, so I've been asking a lot of questions about stuff on her registry (just to say I don't typically ask questions like this of my family & the choices they make).

She said she heard they're good for the food introduction period. Like, when baby is learning to use their own hands to eat & drink. 

That made sense - a bit more sturdy & with the little part on the bottom to "catch" stuff. 

But....in Maxhell, those kids are well past the food introduction stage. Why the hell do they need to wear those things, still?

What is she even talking about? I’m scratching my head trying to figure it out. Could she be referencing the in person church closures due to covid restrictions? Those have been going on for nearly a year, if I remember correctly. And the restrictions are starting to be relaxed now that more people are vaccinated (at least that’s the case in my neck of the words).

Mine too (here in the US south)! When did they change the name to Nutty Buddy? It's been within the last few years I think. It used to drive my sister crazy her husband called them Nutty Buddys when they were Nutty BARS thank you... and now they are Nutty Buddys.

Please let this not be a Berenstain/Barenstein Bears thing.

I’ve always considered “Nutty Buddies” to be vanilla ice cream cones topped with chocolate and chopped peanuts.

YES! Exactly! Nutty Buddy is an amazing ice cream thing, Nutty Bars are Debbie Cakes. But not anymore, apparently.

MN cop killed a man ten minutes from where Chauvin is being tried, there is a police brutality reckoning going on, and the pandemic isn’t over. I’m impressed that Sarah knows any of that TBH. 

I doubt she does. I don't think she was even fully aware of the January 6 insurrection. I think she's referring to the mere existence of the Biden-Harris administration.

That's so cool!

I don't know if we're required to have a front license plate here, but I always put mine on my car. This is my license plate frame on the back of my car:

I was thinking that I hadn't seen many Confederate flags on cars lately, but then I remembered that I haven't been going out as much this last year. I don't know if that has actually changed. :my_sad:

Persecution of Christians in Maxhell consists of the following:

Abortion is legal. 
Gay and trans people can wander free in society and get legally married and have kids via birth or adoption.
Women can be voted into public office.  
Tax dollars are used to benefit people who do not follow Stevehovah’s moral code. 
Women can live independently and hold positions of leadership. 
The First Amendment gives people the right to say that Christianity is garbage and/or should not be our state religion.
The US isn’t living in a hyperreligious Christian version of 1955.

Sometimes it pays to listen to conservative radio.  "Issues, Etc." (issuesetc dog org) just interviewed a religion reporter (Terry Mattingly, his website is Getreligion dot com) and Hong Kong Christian leaders are being persecuted pretty badly.   Like, prison sentences just for being a sect leader persecution.  

Now, then: The particular Hong Kong Christians of whom he speaks are Roman Catholic. IIRC in past the Maxblog snarked at the sight of a defunct Catholic chapel in Colorado (IIRC), in so many words snickering that it was .... yes, a church, sure.  *Maxes rolleyes*

So I don't know if Steve would direct Sarah to research that and write about Christian persecution in a land where religions had been established and encouraged until the PRC takeover as scheduled. 

Maybe that's what he's extrapolating to say that persecution could look like in USA as governments change.  But at present, I do not see that situation here.  And granted, I am only one.  OMMV.

Adding that Christians are being persecuted because the Ebil Gummint has imposed COVID restrictions on in-person gatherings regardless of their religious status.

      I got a webcam. Plugged it in. Did some tests. I managed to have it on and pointing at me for several seconds before the panic started. I look like shit on camera, but I'm guessing that everyone without professional makeup and lighting does, plus it's a basic low-def camera, so even the pros wouldn't look great. My living room has nothing embarrassing in the background, though if I angle it just right my zombie aardvark painting* is visible.
      Next step: Zoom meeting with my housemate (who is well aware of my issues and really good at just letting me deal with it my way). But not today. I've done more than enough for today. Back into the box the blasted thing goes.
       
      *Zombie aardvark painting: https://www.deviantart.com/thedarkcloak/art/Zombie-Aardvark-413059923   I sent the high-resolution file to a print shop and had it printed on canvas, then got it framed. It looks amazing. I paid far too little for it, so if I ever find myself flush with cash, I'll give the artist a very belated tip.
