The Christmas Stench: M.S. French – #In14Ways #MercyfulGrace #Interview

https://MercyfulGrace.blog – Michael Stanley French

A friend of mine introduced me to this young; bright new writer, to interview. It was a breath of fresh air. Read the interview below.

1. What’s your name

My name is Michael Stanley French, but my pen name is M.S. French.
2. What do you do

I’ve been coming up with stories for years, but only recently managed to turn one into a physical book. I can now say that I write children’s literature.

3. What’s your book about
‘The Christmas Stench!’ is about a little boy called Leo. After a day outside with his friends, he runs home so that he won’t be late for dinner. However, when he gets home, he begins to smell something quite unpleasant. So decides that it’s his duty to investigate his family in order to find the source of the stench.
4. Is it your first book

Yes. With ‘The Christmas Stench!’ being my first book, I’m very proud of the way it turned out and I think I’ve even surprised some people.
5. What inspired your book

Although I drew a thumbnail for the cover over a year ago, I can’t exactly explain where the idea came from. But the essence of the book is about self reflection and being cautious before jumping to conclusions.

6. Who are your mentors

With the difficulty of being supported by established publishers in London, I didn’t really feel like I had any direct mentors as such. But I did draw a lot of inspiration from the writing style of Dr. Seuss. Taking time to study his writing, helped me a lot.

7. Where would you like to be in future

I don’t really like to pay so much attention to the future, but I do have ambitions. For example, being able to comfortably live off my career as an Author/ illustrator, would be a dream come true.

8. What are your views on white privilege?

I believe it exists, but I don’t believe I’m a part of the problem and I wouldn’t like the idea of anyone being “a part of the problem”, just because they are white.

In general, I’ve had an incredibly good upbringing, but my family was often only scraping by. When it concerns money, I don’t believe it should determine the joy experienced in life. But of course, there should be set standards of living for all people.
I think much of the world is becoming pulled under because so many believe that fame and fortune is a pinnacle that will solve their problems.

Taking care to look after ones heart and morals, is far more important in my opinion.

But ultimately, the world might well be improved, if more money is distributed fairly. But on the other hand, hard work is a part of the equation.

It’s so easy to get all kinds of demands and believe we’re entitled to a life of luxury. The truth is, that many of us, already do live a life of luxury. The ones that lack basic necessities, such as food, clean water and healthcare, etc.

These are the people who lack. For those in the middle, maybe if we looked more at the ones who are truly poor (economically), we’d feel slightly more blessed in our circumstances.

The rich and famous come and go, but that’s a life that few will know.

9. Your celebrity secret crush?


My celebrity crush(es) can be found in the original seasons of Gilmore Girls. I’ll let you guess who it is.

10. How would you describe your life

If I was to describe my life, it might be; 2 choices, 1 decision. For me, if there are more than 2 choices, I’m lucky and shouldn’t be too worried about which one I pick.
11. Is there room for world peace and how

Sadly, I don’t believe there isn’t room for world peace. At least not now. But I believe it’s possible. Although, it would take the majority of the world to achieve it. The ‘How’ part is tricky.
12. Who or what annoys you most

I don’t so easily get annoyed… but I’m pretty sick of instagram “comedy” and the like. Why or how is rape, harassment and trashy flaunting of wealth, seen as funny and pretty much celebrated?

13. Best advice you were given
“If you have one foot in the past and one foot in the future, you’re pissing on the present.” -As heard from Katya Zamolodchikova in UNHhhh

14. Say 3 good things about love and what it means to you
Love is more an action, than a feeling. Because sometimes, an action that is done out of love for someone you care about, isn’t always something that you feel like doing.

Love is easier to receive than to give. But if you want to receive true love, you’ll have to give it first.
Do what you love, but not whatever you want. Careless acts can come out as blind hate.

The End

M.S. French you are a star. Don’t stop. Keep shinning ..’

My response to Dr Oba Laaro on Women – #In14ways #MercyfulGrace #Aremuorin

I beg to disagree on technicality.

Who has time to write a long essay? So, let’s just play nice and agree to disagree.

I could start with the woman who cooked her two children alive in an oven then called 911 and blamed her house help who was not even there. Fact !!!

Or the woman who accepted money from her sons to have sex & impregnate her daughter (their own younger sister) twice – before she was a teen.

Seriously, let’s not start this. Shall we just have a nice day.

That’s just scratching the surface of women. Women are the deadliest of the human species and that’s a well known adage told ..’

At the end of the day – all humans are capable of despicable evils ..’

Experience is the best teacher. It comes quicker to others than others!

What has biology got to do with maternal or paternal instincts?

Gay parents can raise or foster children just as good if not better from a place of inner strength and resilience.

Here is the Original Post:

Authored by Dr. Oba Laaro, Mass Comm. Dept., Unilorin. THE SECRET OF WOMAN CREATION..

A woman is like a tea bag – you can’t tell how strong she is until you put her in hot water.
-Eleanor Roosevelt

I have always been intrigued by the character of women…

How most of us men underestimate their power, strength and resourcefulness..

Understand me here, not all females are women but all women are females…

This is for women, not females…

These wonderful creatures of the Most High are indispensable…

We, men, cannot operate or function perfectly without them…

No man, except Adam, came to this world but through a woman…

Only a woman can give birth to a child. There is no dispute over that….

Science has evolved by bounds and leaps over the course of time but it has not crossed this particular hurdle…

The saying that behind or beside every successful man there is a woman comes to mind here…

Every man who has scaled the walls of success has had a woman helping him from behind the scenes…

There is always a woman somewhere praying for, crying for or because of, hustling on behalf of, wishing well or missing a man…

There is no man out there that is not loved, prayed for or cared for by at least one woman…

Even if the whole world hates a man, he can be assured of his mother’s love…

Women are mentally stronger than men by far… I decoded this long time ago…

A woman can go through forty heartbreaks in a lifetime and not only survive but stay hopeful of a perfect forty one…

A man hardly survives one…

A really strong woman accepts the war she went through and is ennobled by her scars….

If you want something said, ask a man; if you want something done, ask a woman…

Women have to constantly deal with a lot of issues emotionally, physically and spiritually…

Still they handle them with class and ease…

The things women deal with on a daily basis are things that require divine wisdom and strength..

From menstrual pains, in-laws, pregnancy, childbirth, taking care of the home/kids, diaper changes, sleepless nights after childbirth, breastfeeding, post natal blues to early morning indomie and school runs…

Only a woman hears a child’s cry and knows exactly what the child wants…

A woman is the ultimate multi-tasker; she can do five different things at the same time and she’ll still be sane enough to handle her responsibility as a wife, mother, sister, daughter and career woman…

Most times she is the first to wake up and the last to go to bed…

A woman’s heart is a deep ocean of secrets…

She may stay in a marriage simply to please her family, custom or tradition for sixty years without ever showing remorse…

A man can hardly survive sixty minutes without contemplating an exit covertly or otherwise…

Only a woman cries herself to sleep at night then embraces her kids in the morning with a hug and a smile..

A woman carries the burden of family without expectation that someone will feel her pain or cry her tears…

We men are spoiled by women and we take that for granted…

There is hardly a time a man is not loved genuinely by a woman…it’s always your mother, your wife, sisters or daughters…

There are times that men ONLY love themselves…

I can go on and on and on….

So if you are reading this, wherever you are, stop whatever you are doing…

Visit or call the women in your life and tell them how appreciative you are of all the things they do…and how sorry you are…and mean it.

Start with your mother, if she’s still alive. And if she’s not, pray for her until the day you die…

I hope that my daughters grow up empowered and never define themselves by the way they look but by qualities that make them intelligent,
strong, caring and responsible women.

To all the women in the house, I appreciate you all!

the end.

To conclude. What would man do when we get to places that Adam has never been? Or even Eve.

Grandiose #Delusions – #In14ways #Sin #MercyfulGrace

Luke 18:9-14(NKJV)

The Parable of the Pharisee and the Tax Collector

9 Also He spoke this parable to some who trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others: 10 “Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. 11 The Phariseestood and prayed thus with himself, ‘God, I thank You that I am not like other men—extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this tax collector. 12 I fast twice a week; I give tithes of all that I possess.’ 13 And the tax collector, standing afar off, would not so much as raise his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, ‘God, be merciful to me a sinner!’ 14 I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other; for everyone who exalts himself will be[a]humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.”

Not everyone has the right to speak into your life. I revert all those generational abusive curses today IJN. Back to senders.

You are blessed.
Back to sender with infinite bows of an #abundance of love. Let those delusional #souls know. Nobody owns #God.

Organised religion likes to think it’s sh*t don’t stink. That’s a grandiose delusion of the highest order.

God is not religion. God is love. Practise what you preach!

God first. Chicago was really entertaining and witty. Gratitude. I stay blessed and fill them up with brand new blessings #daily ..’ – #In14ways

https://MercyfulGrace.blog

And furthermore. I’ve realized – Love is love. Wether you are religious or Not, Straight or Lgbtqi or not, black or white or Multi racial, if you have no love; you are a waste of good energy and a diservice to humanity and your self.

Why is it that religious people are some of the most self righteous judgmental people? Ans: Grandiose Delusions!

God Complex on #Forgiveness – #In14ways #AnthonyEverest #MercyfulGrace

You are not God:

It’s very interesting how plethora no of self professed; self righteous, so called christians, project condemnation unto other humans, while they wollow in their own vomit, from head to toe, unrepentantly, in denial, from generation to generations ..’

Funny thou:

Ecclesiastes 7:20 spits them out like this:

20 For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not. (KJV);

The same bible told them:

Matthew 7:3-4 New International Version (NIV)

3 “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? 4 How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye?

Thoughts:

I always wonder how this works out for hypocritical religious charlatans? Well, as for me and my house – ‘I don’t need the Pope to find God”.

Maybe that’s why God made me an Empath to feel the depth of human fragility down to their hypocrisy.

Now, I can creatively allay my thoughts and tell the whole world about it.

Who God really is ..’

God is the personification of emotional intelligence. That’s why he does not operate like humans.

https://MercyfulGrace.blog

Emotional Intellegence:

So, the next time before you throw the accusatory finger of unforgiveness; ask yourself – Did you apologise?

Did you take responsibility for your foolish wrecklessness and ignorance? Your antiquated truths. Your self entitlement. Your self righteousness. Your God complex.

Did you ever consider the long and distant objective of yours, the worthy long road that you refused to take, by transgressing upon the rights of others to their victory? Or how it may have affected them retrospectively?

Wounds heal but scars remain forever. They forever remain susceptible to vulnerability. That’s why there is grace but don’t ask for what you can’t give!

https://MercyfulGrace.blog

Forgiveness:

Forgiveness is a gift. A privilege. Not a right. It won’t alter the givers purpose cuz it does not belong to you. It’s theirs, not yours. Neither is it yours to give or take.

Humility, gratitude, atonement would get you further in pursuance of forgiveness from a forgiving heart. God is a God of hearts and he does not forget. I hope you don’t forget that part. There’s a hidden revelation in that.

How does this make you really, really feel? #Chinese #supremacy on #ChrispineMwale & #african #men – #Racism #In14ways #MercyfulGrace more @ https://MercyfulGrace.blog . . A #Zambian student in china has been killed by chinese Nationals for dating a Chinese woman. Chrispine Mwale 25 a student studying Civil engineering in that country was beaten to death on Monday mid_Morning after he was found in a woman’s apartment.

Despite pleading, they hit him with iron bars and stones until his final breath ” a friend said. Via – #AIIH News

A post shared by MercyfulGrace (@mercyfulgrace) on

Faith without work is dead. A death. It’s slavery. A mental illness. Manipulation. Illogical. An absence of thoughts. Bad religion and it’s not self love.

I won’t expect you to wait around for sorry but I won’t expect you to throw pearls at swines either.

A rapist, without remorse does not get to demand forgiveness from their victim. It’s the victim’s choice to victory from victimization to gift. Wisdom ..’

Conclusion:

Love is not what you say. Love is what you do. God is my providence. I am phenomenal and I am sold out to love.

Plans To Depopulate The Earth 80% For Future Man’s Survival.

The Gay Agenda:

Homosexuals do procreate by choice just like heterosexuals. That narrative; that gays don’t is ignorance. An antiquated truth.

Gays are no different to straight people. They are both capable of evil. Human sexuality is a lot more complex than many thought. Mis education is why.

Once upon a time, they thought twins were evil and murdered them in Nigeria. Marry Slessor stopped that.

So why should criminalizing homosexuality in Nigeria or parts of the world be any better? Gays aren’t the problem. The criminalization of it, is. Just like cannabis and etc. Just like why some blacks still can’t process Malcolm Ex’s sexuality or accept that he wasn’t straight.

Thats why the US military has a “don’t ask; dont tell“, mentality.

Many supposed to be straight men and women live alternative lifestyles; outside their matrimonial homes. So; the joke is on them. They also produced the gays, genetically – biologically.

They are the ones who jeopardise their families and own lives with sexual indiscretions with random sexual partners in their insatiable deprived sexual lust & thirst. They creep.

They are mostly on the down low to keep up a pious image from churches to cabinet offices for fear of condemnation & un-needed humiliation.

A thing Jesus never did. John 3:16-17; according to the bible.

Don’t confuse the narratives. Those evil people; destroying humanity with depopulation tactics; you refer to, will use any agenda to fufill their agendas. Focus on them; not what the lgbtq+ are not about.

It’s time to truly wake up from this ignorance.
