Ye-haw! We're off to a party. Ours is not your typical party. There will be no alcohol, no hangovers the next day, no fights, no regrets. I don't know if we'll stay to see the new year in or not. We'll see how long our stamina holds out. No, we are going to have a … Continue reading Happy New Year!
I've been reading a number of posts on other sites lately that leave me disappointed and fighting discouragement. There seems to be a large number of people who had faith in God/Jesus at one time and now feel that it is all a lie, and that there are no true Christians in the world. I … Continue reading What Is A Christian?
Just discovered this author. Clicked on the Amazon link. Plan to get all three of his books. Check it out for yourself.
A spectacular YA novel, this Dystopian story will have you waiting anxiously for the next book by Aaron Denius Garcia.
Being a fan of religious fiction and biographies (do NOT panic if you are not religious, this story is not either) I was immediately drawn in to read the story about Atom and Ev, and how they were created to create a new life for everyone, in E.D.E.N.
Created much like I would assume a test-tube-infant was created (no offense intended here, I am not a Science or Biology student), Atom and Ev live in a secluded, monitored, high-security environment.
They are on the ‘inside’; the rest of the human race is on the ‘outside’. A select group of Doctors and Scientists are tasked with creating a new race of humans, whatever the cost. The humans on the outside are barely alive, fighting wars, famine, and plagues.
There is a…

I drove to Walmart Monday, about a 25 mile stretch of mostly three-lane highway. On the way there I passed an accident on the South-bound side of the road. One lane was blocked. On my return trip two hours later, what appeared to be that same accident, which appeared to be a two-vehicle incident on … Continue reading What Is The Value Of Your Life?
Just discovered (been in my email since Nov. 29), finally getting back to that date): Sunny Sleevez. These are products developed by someone who does have sun-sensitivity. The products come in different sizes and cover arms, legs and head to protect from harmful UV rays while enjoying the outdoors. Prices are reasonable and pleasing to … Continue reading Help For Sun-Sensitive People
Imanikingblog is right: the ball is in your court, oh reader. What will you do with the gift God gave when He sent His ONLY begotten Son to take the punishment for your sin? Will you choose to take the consequences anyway and spend eternity in hell, or will you accept the Gift, and ask Him to make you over in His image, so you can enjoy real peace, joy, and love, and spend eternity in a happy place with no more pain, suffering, death, sin, or hate?
Amidst the many wonderful and out-of-this-world-names that we call HIM or address Him as – trying to understand an Infinite God through our finite minds and limited abilities, I also call Him THE ANSWER.
How do you handle your confusion when The Answer asks a question?
Is it that, He doesn’t have answers anymore?
At what point did He lose that ability?
My mind ponders on why The Answer would have questions and dare to ask them…ask me a mortal. What does He expect of me? How do I defend this “inadequacy”?
I wonder and ponder.
Yet at the same time, it occurs to me that these Questions are aimed or fired at my faithlessness or loss of what I once had. He is questioning the new found friend that I have chosen to listen to called DOUBT. Not something I did willingly (I think) but by not…

What does Christmas mean to a little child? The answer would depend on his or her life situation. A child living in a family that has everything they need would probably be filled with anticipation of lots of presents, toys, candies, family gatherings, and all the food he could want. But a little girl living … Continue reading When It Seems All Hope Is Lost
The Satanic Temple Says Homosexual Marriage is a 'Sacrament,'. http://rogertharpe.wordpress.com/2014/12/19/the-satanic-temple-says-homosexual-marriage-is-a-sacrament/ Originally posted on Roger Thorpe's blog on wordpress.com. People may not want to hear the truth, but they need to. If you had cancer wouldn't you want your doctor to tell you so you could discuss treatment options? Jesus is the cure for sin, hate, … Continue reading The Satanic Temple Says Homosexual Marriage is a ‘Sacrament,’
We live in a world where the majority of people think they should just be able to do anything they want without consequence. That is a fairytale. If you hold a gun to someone, you can expect, at some point, to either be killed, or end up in prison. If you hold your hand over … Continue reading The Satanic Temple Says Homosexual Marriage is a ‘Sacrament,’
There goes that human again, trying to write someone else's story. See, that's just wrong. It's egotistical. Why can't she ever think about someone else? Her husband is no better. He doesn't write, but he doesn't pay attention to me either. I feel so used and taken for granted. Sometimes he goes for days without … Continue reading Where Is It? Where Is It? Where Is It?
