CHLOE'S CHRISTMAS MESSAGE - 2002
Good ol' Chloe. She sent me an 'anonymous' Christmas card, together with a calendar for the year 2000. Is she a nutter or what? For goodness sake, Chloe, tell me what it is meant to say!
With the card was a reference to some text from the bible, Ezekial 18 - v27-32.
As I had a hand in writing the bible, I have presented the passage as applying to Chloe.
Ezekiel 18:27 Again, when Chloe turneth away from her wickedness that she hath committed, and doeth that which is lawful and right, she shall save her soul alive.
Ezekiel 18:28 Because she considereth, and turneth away from all her transgressions that she hath committed, she shall surely live, she shall not die.
Ezekiel 18:29 Yet saith the LORD, The way is not equal. O LORD, are not my ways equal? are not your ways unequal?
Ezekiel 18:30 Therefore I will judge you, Chloe, according to your ways, saith the Lord GOD. Repent, Chloe, and turn yourself from all your transgressions; so iniquity shall not be your ruin.
Ezekiel 18:31 Cast away from you,Chloe, all your transgressions, whereby ye have transgressed; and make you a new heart and a new spirit: for ye WILL die, Chloe.
Ezekiel 18:32 For I have no pleasure in the death of her that dieth, saith the Lord GOD: wherefore turn yourself, Chloe, and live.
It is dangerous to use quotes from the bible. Chloe, here are the first four verses of the prophet that you quote, Ezekial 18. I have not changed any, as it condemns you as it stands.
Ezekiel 18:1 The word of the LORD came unto me again, saying,
Ezekiel 18:2 What mean ye, that ye use this proverb concerning the land of Israel, saying, The fathers have eaten sour grapes, and the children's teeth are set on edge?
Ezekiel 18:3 As I live, saith the Lord GOD, ye shall not have occasion any more to use this proverb in Israel.
Ezekiel 18:4 Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die.
And, what about the commandment?
Exodus 20:7 Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.
Saturday, 28 December 2002. I have called 2002 my 'annus horribilus'. But, I think that 2003 will be Chloe's 'anus haemorrhoidus', as CJ is going to be a 'pain in the arse' for her! She is very angry that no family, or any of her 'many friends', visited her over Christmas. Also, that none of the family, or any of her 'many friends', invited her round. She has phoned Carl several times complaining that CJ has been playing up. Every time she phones Carl, to aggravate him, he phones me and tells me that she is having a rough time, and I fall about laughing! Poor cow, she has to choose between suffering in silence or phoning Carl so that he can phone me and give me a good laugh - I think that that is called a dilemma!
She wanted to get her hands on the money for looking after him, but she does not want the bother of him. He is her 'White Elephant', and he will bleed her dry. It won't be long before he takes money from her purse, (as Kevin did to me as a youngster!)
He hides her beer so that she can't get drunk! Also, he keeps her awake until 3am playing his computer games. All she does is shout, scream, and dance up and down. The neighbours hear it, and are going to bring in the police. Oh, I remember it well! He ignores her and just keeps saying, "Ladybird, Ladybird!" She goes bonkers at it. All I use to do was just ignore her and let her have her 'war dance'. I put up with her for 23 years before she sent me psycho and I went to murder her.
She told Carl that she was going to put CJ out if the house. (She put Carl out when he was sixteen!)
As CJ was taken away from her because of her bad parenting, she has herself to blame for his behaviour. (Though, she will blame everyone else, except herself - as usual)
Although I rub my hands with glee, thinking of her getting her 'come uppance', my heart goes out to CJ, as he has never been given a proper chance in life. But, there is nothing that I can do, other than be aware of what's going on, and getting him help if it seems that he needs it. In English law, as she is his carer, she is responsible for him until he is eighteen. I may contact the Social Services again for them to keep a closer eye on him.
I felt in a humorous mood, and so I returned her blank 'anonymous card', together with the 2000 calendar & the bible reference. Not wishing to waste the blank card, I put my wishes for her on it.
