Tis' The Season...To Crush LOL

Okay, now that it is Christmas time it seems that LOVE is in the air. There is just something about this season that makes it so easy to fall in Crush LOL. Maybe its the white twinkle lights that get mistaken for fireworks, maybe its that we are on a sugar rush from all the sweets we eat, or maybe its the fact that Christmas makes us all misty eyed, IDK but all I know its so easy to fall in Crush. So, I have a warning for all of you falling in Crush, 1) don't be blinded by the good attributes to the point where you are unable to see whats wrong with them. 2) Do not become a stalker (nobody likes a stalker). 3) Make sure he is available. 4) Look at how he is with children. 5) Does he treat his Mama right. 6) Is he age appropriate? 7) Is he slightly interested in you. 8) Does he have a JOB. 9) Does he Love GOD? 10) Is he real LOL. These have no order but try to look for them.... Awww to be in Crush LOL

Friday, September 16, 2011


This has been the topic at church. The other day Bro. Tony Spell came and preached our covering service. He preached on our Apostolic Faith. Meaning following the apostle's doctrine without shame. What a message for us. We baptise in Jesus name, we believe in being filled with the Holy Ghost with evidence of speaking in tongues, we believe in Holiness, our women do not cut their hair and our men do, and we praise the one and only Lord JESUS CHRIST.. That's right people I believe in the word of God without shame. I am fired up!!
Now I am a College student and go to a secular university. Where my professors are trying to get me to believe in what they say. They are trying to change my thinking. Well I have news my mind cannot be change, I have read and experienced this truth! So the day after Bro. Spell preached I went to my children's literature class where my class was discussing what can and cannot be said inside the classroom. There were so many topics brought up but I am going to bring up this shocking one. She asked us what are we going to do when parents come upset that there is a child's parent is upset another child in class has same sex parents. I know you all are shocked right now, so you can imagine my face LOL. Students immediately raised their hands and gave their opinions. Some said they would explain how they were only talking about alternate life styles and others said they were only being fair to the child of the same sex parents. Okay, imagine me...Courtney Thaler...Sitting there....Listening to this Garbage...Shocked...and ready to speak. I rose my hand with triumph and dignity. "There is no room in any classroom for a teacher to discuss a parent's sex-life." WHAM BAM BOOM take that devil!! "Well, Courtney good point but what happens when the child brings it up?" Must you ask? LOL! "Well, of course I would make the child feel valued and loved but I would not partake in any conversation of that sort. I would immediately change the subject and if this conversation persisted I would talk to the parent. As with any child whether their parents are same sex or not we have no room to hear about their sex life." Another teacher told us that we may have to teach about gay families...They asked what will you do? Duh, I won't...Why is there a place in curriculum for sex lives? Our kids can barely read or write a paper and you want me to teach what? My God. Bro. Clark was preaching about how sin is being shoved in our faces and how we as christians are unable to profess what they believe. I have had teachers warn me that when I am working in a school that I cannot answer a child when they ask me if I believe in God. Are you Kidding me? Yet I can teach a lesson on same sex parents? The devil is such a liar. If he can set forth his agenda... I will not be ashamed of what I believe!

We Can Do It!

Okay, So my this is inspired by the last paper I wrote. It was entitled "Mixed Messages for Rosie". Many really do not know who Rosie is. So, for the young ladies who don't let me introduce her to you. Rosie is a fictional character developed during WWII. She inspired women in America to join the work force. Before that women were only allowed to take jobs, that women were capable to do. Rosie brought women into shipyards, factories, and they even welded. Well, when the men returned from war these ladies were forced back into the home. Sad but true.

This post is not a feminist perspective, so sorry! This is from a young Apostolic woman who believes women should be submissive to their husband as the husband loves her like Christ loved the church, who believes a mother is the most rewarding job a woman could ever obtain, who believes women should wear skirts, who believes women should not wear make up, who believes in modesty, and who believes a woman should never cut her hair. But I am posting this in the avenue to stir young apostolic women.

Now that we have the disclaimer here is what is on my mind. I was putting my life on hold until I said "I Do". I kept saying "Oh my ministry will start with my husband.." Ummm....WOW... Who am I to say that God can't use me? I finally realized my call to join Hope Corp and I am so excited. I know that God has something in store for me. I have been given a gift to teach, it is so evident it is not even funny. So, I am looking at what avenues that God wants to use me in with that. I want all you young women to see that "We Can Do It", yes it is a blessing to be married (and believe me I want to be), but until that time LET GOD USE YOU...

On My Mind

So, I have been thinking. (Watch out this is a dangerous task). A lot have things have changed in the last few months. All of which for the best. My life continually evolving and moving on! I feel like this is the Evolution of Courtney Mary Thaler. My focus has moved from just getting by too full and complete success. I will no longer settle for less than the best. In every aspect of my life I want the closets to perfection I am able to obtain. People tell me being a perfectionist and expecting is wrong, I have realized I completely disagree....I serve a King who requires my best, who thinks I deserve the best, and who is completely perfect!!! So, with my walk with the Lord, with school, with church, with family, with Love, and with my friends I want the BEST!!
Lately, people have been saying in a negative manner that my boldness is obvious...or overpowering...You know what I love my boldness...I love the truth...I feel like people get offended because they aren't used to the truth. I know at times my feelings are raw, but lets be real life is raw. This world that we live in is raw. I am who I am just striving for perfection. I may make mistakes or even say the wrong thing, but I am trying.
No longer will I just settle, I have seen what settling would have left me with... And that is not what I deserve! I believe the Lord just woke me up, just like my Happy Hour Mocha Frap just did!! If I know the truth why would I settle for anything less than the truth, this refers to a recent conversation with a backslider...WHY? They did not have answer other than, I still believe...That makes no sense...Just as this post LOL.

Room For The Blood...

Funny title I know but there is much meaning behind it. This is a very personal post to me. I am being transparent with all of my readers, so please enjoy...

I went on a mini holy ghost vacation to Ontario. It was much needed because my brain was on overload, ask my sister I started crying for no reason. Well a week before I left I had been feeling to take a step and wear longer skirts. Now mind you my skirts were always two inches below my knee. But I felt lead to do more. Well after a service one night I felt like I could not push it off any longer. So I decided to go on a "Long SKirt Fast" LOL I did it. Too be honest it was hard cause I wear FUN SOCKS in the winter and no one could see them LOL. But I was obedient to the Holy Ghost. Upon my arrival in Ontario we went to church as usual. But Bro. Clark preached a confirmation message to me on Wednesday Night. He spoke on Adam and Eve in the Garden. When the Lord made them clothing. Uh it was so amazing. He opened my eyes. You know how all the pictures of them show them in lil tiny clothes lol, HELLO do you really think God would make His people look all half naked? God doesn't do anything half way. Then he began to say how the animal skins required the blood of the animal to be shed, and how the blood covered them. I wish I had his message to post to you because I am doing it no justice. There was a part where he asked if what we were wearing left room for the blood. Hey if your clothes are tight enough where air cannot flow threw how do you expect the blood to flow through? I never ever want to wear something that is not pleasing to God where His blood cannot cover us. No flesh can glory in His presence, there is too much flesh being shown by a lot of us. I have a new Revelation of modesty!!! It is so important ladies and gentlemen. We are representations of the MOST HIGH, Covered by the Blood of the Lamb. That blood is for our protection, really it is just like the passover. Its crazy I was listening to Whits End and there was something that stuck out to me it said, "Once you step out of the house the blood cannot cover you," Once we step out of Holiness the blood cannot cover us. Think about it, if your skirt is too short or tight are you stepping out of Holiness? Can the blood cover you? I need that blood to cover me....I NEED HOLINESS.

Here I Am...

Here I Am...

Knowing that I am Right Where I belong,
Always doing what I am supposed to.
Wondering When I'll go and What I'll do.
Wanting More and waiting for Everything,
I'm stuck Reaching and Grasping the edge.
I thought I obtained it but then I Lost it,
It seems as though I am the only one left,
The Only one undecided.

I always Had everything Figured out,
Now I don't have a clue.
I am waiting For You to make up your Mind,
Ask me I will tell you what to do.
I am left on Hold Living by faith.

For the first Time Its all Up to HIM,
The ONE who holds my life in HIS hands,
Its Hard to see it working out for my good,
Its hard to have faith when I can't see,
I wish HE would give me a Hint,
Just one Little taste so I Would feel,
I wish that You were Here,
I miss You so much.

But as I Pray...
Lord, Here I Am,
Lord, Send Me,
Lord, Have My Life,
Lord, Take All Of Me,
Lord, I Am Yours,
Lord, Use Me,
Lord, I Put My Trust In YOU,
Lord, Mold Me

Lord, I AM HERE!
