The Cherry On Top!!!

Remembering something that's just TOO HILARIOUS, to NOT share!!! So right after my mom died I was talking to dad of one the kids I bring to church. He was asking me how I was doing with everything, then he tells me that he really understands what I'm going through cuz he was his grandma's caregiver when she was dying! He's like, and let me tell you something, THAT WAS NOT EASY!!!
.
My grandma was bedridden, she had Kidney failure, Heart failure, Alztheimers, Pnomonia, Lung cancer, ANNNNNNND...
BED BUGS!!!
 
#busministrylaughs
AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!  Of course I waited til I left to ACTUALLY start laughing, buuuut man!!! THANK GOD that was ONE THING my mom did NOT have...BED BUGS!!! Phew!!! Every time YOU think your life is going down hill, name ALL the things that are going wrong and then say,
BUUUUUUUUUUT...
AT LEAST I DON'T HAVE BED BUGS!!!
.
That seriously cracked me up! Gave me a really good laugh amidst my sadness!!! Why take a break from the work of the Lord in your time of grief, God's work will only brighten your day!!!
♥Mary Frances
P.S. No offense to anyone out there that may have bed bugs...I HOPE I never do!!!

Confession Time!!!

I, Mary Frances Ginty have a confession to make...
YES, I said a confession!!! (Hope you all can handle this...are you ready???) HERE IT IS:
I am a THIEF!!! Yes, yes, yes, I know this is shocking news everybody...BUUUUUUUUUT I STEAL!!! What do I steal??? Thank you for asking, I would LOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE to tell you all!!!! ;)
.
So last week I went to the county fair with my brother Abe, his wife Grace and their two kids and I brought along with my nephew Odin. Well we're doing the little kiddie rides with all the kiddos for a while, we take a break for lunch buy more tickets and then we're at it again with the kid rides. By this point in the day, it's typical AZ spring weather which means its starting to get pretty warm. All over the fairgrounds they have these HUGE umbrellas on cement blocks to create shade under and around the benches set up as well. However, for whatever reason, the fair staff had not yet opened them, and you needed a special tool to open them, trust me, I had already tried.
.
So my sis-in-law and I are taking turns going on the rides with the kids to try and conserve their tickets, well it was my sis-in-laws turn to ride and while she was doing so, I decided to find a shady place to relax a minute. The only place I could find nearby was one of the umbrellas, though not opened, still had a bit of shade on half of the cement block it was on. Even, though there was a little boy sitting there on half of the shade eating some fries, I figured I would just sit on the other half of the shade. (And NO I didn't steal any of his fries you guys!!! AHAHAHAAAA!!!) 
.
I could tell when I sat down, that this boys father didn't like that I was sitting there with them, buuuuuuuuuut, he didn't say anything, and I just went right on sitting there because hey, it was hot and I wanted shade! So then my brother comes over, and he sits on the other bench, we start chit-chatting, I'm all to my brother, Idk why they don't open these umbrellas, it's getting really warm out, seems like now would be a good time to open them. Well we talk about pretty much NOTHING for a few more minutes just going over what rides we're going to take the kids on next...
.
When I hear  a female voice joining the other little boy and father. She says to her son, Mommy's back, Oh wow, it looks like someone STOLE your shade!!! YES, she said STOLE! She then tells him to scoot over she could get some shade too...I was like thinking in my head, are you seriously kidding me??? YOUR GONNA ACCUSE ME OF STEALING SHADE??? I just ignored her and continued to talk to my brother...I was thinking, I didn't pray long enough this morning to respond to SHADE STEALING ACCUSATIONS!!! I mean, I didn't even KNOW you could OWN SHADE!!! AHAHAHAHAAA!!!
.
BUUUUUUUUUUUUUUT....
There you have it guys,
 I MARY FRANCES GINTY...
AM A SHADE STEALER!!!
YES, I steal SHADE!!!
Got shade??? Better WATCH IT...cuz I'm COMING FOR IT!!!
I guess I'm just a shady girl!!! 
.
BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAA!!! 
BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAA!!! 
BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAA!!! 
.
♥Mary Frances :)
P.S. I also steal rocks on top of mountains to relax after a hike...although I prefer the term borrow!!!
P.P.S Had she SHARED her shade with me, I wouldn't have to steal it...guess her mommy never to taught her to share...MINE sure did!!!
.
P.P.P. S. I feel bad for the man married to her, could you imagine being married to a woman that accuses random innocent folks of stealing shade??? Bet he's living on the corner of his rooftop...ahahahaaaaa!!!

All I need to know!!!

Recently, I was talking to a friend and she said something to me that I just LOOOOOVED!!! She was telling me about how she had invited her cousin to church, she said I don't know if he's going to come though. I really want him to, he's gay so I think that makes him hesitate about coming. So I said, WEEEELLLL you know, GOD DELIVERS!!! And what she said back to me is what stood out, she said, AND THATS ALL I NEED TO KNOW!!!
.
You guys GOD DELIVERS!!! It doesn't matter the sin someone is in, GOD DELIVERS!!! It doesn't matter the depths of despair they are in, GOD DELIVERS!!! It doesn't matter what they are bound to, GOD DELIVERS!!! It doesn't matter what they are addicted too, GOD DELIVERS!!! It doesn't matter the mental sickness they are in, GOD DELIVERS!!! The filth and disgust of what they are and have done does not matter, GOD DELIVERS!!! It doesn't matter the emotional state someone is in, GOD DELIVERS!!!
 God is a DELIVERER!!!
.
So often we look at a person, we look at the sin in their life and all the baggage and despair of this world they are carrying with them, and we try to analyze the situation, we to figure it all out, BUUUUUUUUUUT STOP, you don't need to know all their sins, you just need to know, GOD DELIVERS!!!
ARE YOU A SINNER???
GOD DELIVERS!!!
ANNNNNNNNNNND...
THATS ALL I NEED TO KNOW!!!
. 
"Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
.
And such were some of you:
but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God." (1 Corinthians 6:9-11)

Rewriting Sayings #2

As I said a few weeks ago, I've decided to start a new little series called "Rewriting Sayings" this is where I simply rewrite popular sayings to say things that are glorifying to God instead of self. Refresh your mind with the first rewriting HERE
This weeks REWRITE is;
You are enough!
Image result for You are enough
Actually, YOUR NOT!!! 
(Buuuuuuut JESUS IS!!!)
It's all over the internet, Google, pinterest, there are notebooks, tshirts and hats with these words on it. While I LOOOOOVE the idea of promoting being our self, being natural, not trying to be something we're not. Not trying to become something or someone, through accomplishments, money, material things or trying to be beautiful through makeup or fashion,  THE TRUTH IS, we are NOT ENOUGH on our own accord. The Bible says,  "But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away." (Isaiah 64:6) 
.
The underlying meaning behind the saying "YOU ARE ENOUGH" is self-empowerment. There is NOTHING we can ever do, to make us ENOUGH, the Bible says that even our own righteousness is as FILTHY RAGS in comparison to the holiness of God. Next to God's goodness, we can NEVERRRR be enough, but God in His love and mercy, takes us in ANYWAYZ!!! 
.
"And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God." (1 Corinthians 6:11)
.
God knows the depths of evil, sin and iniquities that is possible in human kind, we could never be enough, so He chose to fill in the gaps where we come up short...
"For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him." (2 Corinthians 5:21)
.
We don't need SELF-empowerment, 
WE NEED GOD-EMPOWERMENT!!!
YOU ARE NOT ENOUGH...
GOD IS ENOUGH!!!

When to PRAISE THE LORD!!!

We had an evangelist at our church yesterday and said: 
There are TWO times to PRAISE THE LORD!!!
1. WHEN YOU FEEL LIKE IT!!!
ANNNNNNNNNNNND...
2. WHEN YOU DON'T FEEL LIKE IT!!!
"Let every thing that hath breath praise the Lord. Praise ye the Lord." (Psalm 150:6)

I LIIIIIIKE YOUR UNICORN!!!

Soooooooo in February, for Presidents day being a day off VACAY day, we decided to take a little trip up to Prescott AZ! The plan was to eat breakfast, HIKE and EAT lunch there, buuuuuuuuut it ended up snowing up there, which for us Phoenix Arizonans is just AMAAAAAAAAAZING!!! (Btw: I have a LOVE/HATE relationship with snow! I LOVE to go to the snow and spend a day in it! Sledding, tubing, snow angels, snowmen and a few snowball fights, buuuuuuuuut I would NOT want to LIVE IN IT!!! After a day, i'm ready to part wayz! Buuuuuut can't wait to spend that one day in it again NEXT YEAR! Kinda like some people...AHAHAHAHAHAAA!!!;)
.
So the day turned into a day of eating breakfast at Cuppers, playing in the snow, (No one wanted to hike the mountain with me in snow! Psssh!) SHOPPING, eating AND MORE playing in the snow!!! Well people just LOOOOOOOOOOOVED my outfit!!! I wore a blue hoodie, with my snowman cap...I was very warm and snuggly annnnnnd apparently ADORABLE...not to toot my own horn buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut TOOT, TOOT!!! ;) Okaaaaaaaaaaay, no, this was ACTUALLY this was everyone else's words, I mean, I wasn't arguing with them on the matter,
.
BUUUUUT HEEEEEEEEYYY, if you look cute, YOU LOOK CUTE!!! And apparently, I had the adorable fluffy-snow-lady look going on and was embracing WHOLE-HEARTEDLY!!!
So people were just coming up to me all over saying they liked my hat, that I looked cute, they liked my outfit etc...This little old lady was following me at the mall, trailing me as I went into the bathroom, I hear this, excuse me, excuse me, so I turn and see this adorable lil old lady! (No disrespect in calling her a lil old lady, I plan on being an adorable, fluffy old lady some day!) So I turn to her and she's holding up her phone and was like, would you mind if I took your picture? Your outfit is just SOOOOOO CUTE! I really want a picture of it to show people! I was like, SURE, instantly ready to pose, OF COURSE!!! I mean people were just REALLY loving my snow-lady hat, a homeless man asked me for it, I just smiled, I mean IF he didn't have a hat, I woulda given it to him, buuuuuuuut he had a very nice, new and warm looking hat to keep him warm, if I gave him mine, then I wouldn't have one, ANNNNND I wasn't about to trade...Jus sayin! Sooooo I just smiled.
BUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUT
My favorite compliment went to the little old man that complimented me, I was walking by him an he says to me with this thick drawl, "I LIIIIIIIIKE YOUR HAT!" I was like, Oh, THANK YOU! He was like, "A UNICOOOOORN, I liiiiiiiiiiiike that!!!" I was like, Okaaaaaaaaaay that was OFFICIALLY my favorite compliment of the day!!! I mean, everyone was freaking out and complimenting me on my hat because it had snowed and my hat was a snow-man, and this brotha just completely missed the whole point!!! (Or exchanged the carrot nose point for a unicorn-horn's point!) Buuuuuuuuuuuuuut heeeeeeey, I DO LIKE UNICORNS!!! Ahahahahaaaaa!!!

Rewriting Sayings #1

I've decided to start a new little series called "Rewriting Sayings" this is where I simply rewrite popular sayings to say things that are glorifying to God instead of self.
.
SAYING #1
Do more of what makes you happy!!!
ACTUALLY, 
do more of what makes GOD Happy!!!
It doesn't really matter what makes you happy, if what makes you happy takes your soul to hell.
.
"Just so you know, I don't pray for you to be happy."
.
I told that to one of the girls that used to live with me but had now turned away from God. She looked at me in surprise, because she knew how much I loved her and how I hated seeing her sad. I told her that while I wanted her to be happy, I ultimately wanted to see her saved. What does happiness matter if you happily party your soul into eternal damnation. NOPE, it's NOT all about what make YOU HAPPY, it's all about WHAT MAKES GOD HAPPY...Make God happy, and YOU'LL BE HAPPY!!! (If not here, on the other side, FOREVERRRR!!!)
"I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart." (Psalms 40:8)

Best Awkward Compliment!!!

Sooooooo this goes down as THE BEST AWKWARD compliment of 2019 thus far, it's only March, SOOOOOOOOO it could be outdone by the end of the year!!!
.
Some Jehovah Witnesses came to our door and even though I don't believe what they believe, I strive to be a witness back and invite them to our church, but it's a struggle, cuz I don't want to lead them on, I finally had to tell a girl after coming to my door for 6 months, well I'm actually not interested, I have a church that I go to faithfully, I just didn't want to be rude because we knock doors as well so I know what it's like to be on the receiving end and ended it with buuuuuut if you ever want to experience the power of the Holy Ghost, just go to 124th street and Shea...weeeeeeellll...she hasn't been back! Buuuuuuuuuuuuuut there was another crew that came back...
.
ANNNNNNNNNNNNNND these ladies, after I invited them to our church were like, well we have a church right up the street that your welcome to come too, there's a youth group for you too you know. I started laughing when they invited me to join their youth group. They were like, Weeeeellll you look VERY YOUNG!!! Soooooo I asked my favorite question: HOW OLD DO YOU THINK I AM???
.
The one lady says, OH, I KNOW, (The way she said it was like, I know your NOT a teenager but your still just a kid!) Your 25!!! The other one nodded, YES, 25!!! I GLEEFULLY said, Actually...
35!!!
Idk what they were more shocked about, MY BEING 35 OR the idea of me speaking in tongues, either way, they haven't been back!!! What do you guys think;
DO I LOOK young enough to be invited to join a group of teenagers youth group???
My answer is NOOOOOOOO!!!
Yes, I was wearing the beanie and hoody in the above pic, buuuuuuuuut I personally don't think I look THAT YOUNG, buuuuuuuuut it's a nice thought to think that SOMEONE did think that!!!

Happy Brain-boosting Wednesday(WHY Eve ate the apple AND who invented shopping???)

Here's your middle-of-the-week brain booster!!!
.

Ok, ok, okaaaaaaaaaaaay I know all you hoity-toity Bible scholars out there that just read my title and your liiiiike, ACTUALLY the Bible doesn't say it was an apple, we really don't KNOW what kind of fruit it was...YEAH, I know that, so NOW that we got that out of the way, lets move ourselves right along...
"Did you know???..."
.
WHY DID EVE EAT THAT APPLE???
OR
WHO INVENTED SHOPPING???
.
I was at a Bible study my pastor was teaching a while ago and he was talking about how when Eve ate the fruit, her and Adam immediately knew they were naked and so they went and made themselves clothes out of fig leaves and suddenly, I knew WHY Eve must have eaten that apple... as we were sitting there it hit me...
.
WHAT IF EVE JUST WANTED
 TO GO SHOPPING???????Image result for Shopping
.
Has anyone everrrrrrr DARED TO WONDER THAT BEFORE??? 
Yes, yes you guys, in the middle of Pastor's teaching, I had a SHOPPING REVELATION!!! 
.
Think about it ladies, IF IT WERE NOT FOR EVE, 
SHOPPING WOULD HAVE NEVERRRR BEGAN!!!! 
Literally you guys, 
EVE INVENTED SHOPPING!!! 
"...Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeelllll NOW YOU DO, annnnnnnnnd don't you FORGET IT!!!" (AIO BTV quote;)
.
Annnnnnnnd from the bottom of my big fluffy heart,
 I just wanna say...
THANK GOD FOR SHOPPING!!!
.
Now, to all you SHOPPING HATERRRRS out there, your all reading this and the only thing your getting from all this is, SEE, shopping IS EVIL!!! I have one friend particularly that is reading this right now, and thinking see, I TOLD YOU, yeah, I KNOW WHAT YOUR THINKING BRO, buuuuuuuuuuuuuut before you get to far with your shopping bashing, just know this, GOD ENFORCES SHOPPING!!! Uh, huh, that's right, HE DOES!!! 
.
GOD PROMOES SHOPPING:
Are you guys ready for this??? Cuz you see, Adam and Eve clothed themselves with fig leaves and when God saw them he was like, (Mary translation of Genesis 3:21) "NAW GIRRRRRL" you need MORE CLOTHES!!!" Yes, yes you guys, once shopping STARTED, 
GOD PROMOTED AND ENFORCED IT!!!
.
Annnnnnnnnnnd once again, God takes the bad and turns it for good!!!
Ain't that JUST LIKE THE LORD!?!?!? 
Can I get an amen from all you sisters out there???
Pardon me a moment while I have a lil dance!!!

God-Inspired-pick-up-line!!! ;))))

So my brother, Abie Baby was preaching at church a few Sunday Eves ago and in his message he was talking about Job, as he was preaching and he was talking about how his one friend just stared at him 7 days before he even said anything to him, annnnnnnnnd as he was telling this story, I was suddenly struck by an inspiration FROM GOD, yes, I said, from God!!! ;)
.
After church, I went running over to my brother, I was like, GOD inspired me with THE MOST AMAZING PICK UP LINE EVERRRRR during your preaching tonight, it goes like this...
.
You may NOT be Job, 
buuuuuuuuuut
 I could stare at you
 for AT LEAST 7 days!!!
HEEEEEEEEEEEEYYYY!!!😜🙌
My brother was like, REALLY??? That's what you got from my preaching???? (But he was laughing...it must be amazing to have a big sis like me!!! Jus sayin;) I was like HEY, at least you didn't read the scripture about Moses rod sprouting almonds, remember that HERE??? LOL Hey you all have to admit tho, that's a pretty AWESOME PICK UP LINE!!! If anyone uses it, PULEEEEEEZE let me know!!! Maryfranceswriting@gmail.com I guarantee you all this pick up line is a winner! If THE RIGHT guy said that pick-up line to me, liiiiiiiike HEEEEEY SISTER, I just may be liiiiiike,  HEEEEEEY BROTHER!!! AHAHAHAHAHAAAA!!!
.
♥Mary Frances :)
P.S. Isn't it crazy funny how when one person says something it would seem like THE MOST AMAZING AND ROMANTIC COMMENT EVERRRR annnnnnd yet someone else could literally say THE SAME EXACT THING to you and your just like, OK THAT WAS JUST CREEEEEEPY!!!! cRaZy right???

Why the name!?!?

I was listening to Focus On The Family earlier and the man was telling a story about a little boy that was lost in the grocery store. So this little boy started calling out his mommy's name! He said, "Heather! Heather! HEATHER!!!" Finally his mommy heard him and came and rescued him from being lost. But after she hugged him and calmed him down she asked him WHY he called her Heather and not just MOMMY??? And the little boy said, because Mommy, there are A LOT of mommies in this store...BUUUUUUUUUUUT I WANTED...
MY MOMMY!!!
.
Now, this had absolutely NOTHING to do with the point of the story that the radio was saying, buuuuuuuuuut this got me to thinking, when I was in college, writing for the college paper, I was writing an inspiring story and I was quoting the girl that the story was written about and I wrote, that she said she found love in the arms of Jesus. My teacher, who was a "Christian" said, how about, INSTEAD of saying in the arms of JESUS, how about we paraphrase her to say she found love in the arms of GOD! I was just kinda like, okaaaaaay buuuuut I don't really see WHYYYY??? I mean, after all, JESUS IS GOD!!!
.
 She said, well because when you say God, people are MORE ACCEPTING of that, because almost everyone believes in God in some sort of way or the other. Muslims, Jews, Hindu, Budhists, Bahai, ...they all believe in God, so they won't mind reading God, buuuuut WHEN YOU SAY, Jesus, now your being exclusive, because most people believe in God, buuuuut they don't believe that JESUS IS GOD!!! Weeeeeeeeellll...this DID NOT SET WELL WITH ME AT ALL!!! I mean, I HAD NO problem just saying God, UNTIL she explained to me WHY! That's what I call watering down and diluting the message, compromising...annnnd YES...also the reason WHY I didn't make it as a Christian in a career of Journalism!!! LOL
.
You wanna know WHY I like to say JESUS, soooo much WHEN I PRAY??? Bcause, this world is filled with gods, buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut...when I have a problem, when I have a need, when I am afraid, when I need a shelter, when I need a friend, when I'm scared and alone, I DON't just want any o god, I SAY JESUS!!!
BECAUSE...
I WANT MY GOD!!!
