    Jim, I admire your spunk and get-up-and-go, but SOMETIMES, the Good Lord gave us a brain so we can know when to quit, and take it easy, and let folks learn to get along without us! I love your passion, and I think there's a special place in God's...

    Blackwater replied to a thread Help me listen Lord in Our Chapel
    Amen, Boaz! I keep re-learning that my pre-conceived notions are often the biggest barrier to greater understanding of others, and myself as well. And they CAN even mask the realities of our Lord, as well, if we lock into a single view of Him. ...

    Excellent post! We self-possessed humans always seem to want what we want, and nothing else will please us. However, sometimes, God gives us what we NEED instead! He loves us enough to give us what He knows we NEED, even though we ask for...

    I've long thought that if I were at the end of my life, mostly, I'd just want to review the great times and wonders I've seen. This would, I think, help create the right atmosphere for me to be so very thankful to Him for all He's given me, despite...

    Nobody celebrates like a bunch of believers who have just received a blessing from the Lord! Nobody can ever be as happy, thankful and humble, all in one! Our God is a wonderful and masterful and loving God, and I thank Him for all that, and yet...

    Lord, once again, you have shown us, your children, a powerful mercy, even though we don't deserve it. This storm called Irma that just went through was supposed to be the most powerful storm to have hit our land in the time we've been keeping...

    Lord, this storm that recently hit FL and GA and some other places, was touted to be a horribly strong one. It did not work out to be as powerful or destructive as predicted, and though many were damaged severely, even there, the damage was not...

    JB, you've gotten some good advice and suggestions. Now, only you can determine what works best for you. Shooting with the offside hand is more, I think, a matter of WANTING to than anything else, and you appear to have that down. The rest is...

    FWIW, hirricanes and tornadoes are very peculiar things. Our power went out @ 8:00 a.m. Monday. We just got the power back on a few minutes ago now. Whew! It's a BIG reminder how dependent we are on electricity and the power grid!!! But we were...

    Hickock has the right idea. If you've ever attended training in law enforcement, you're taught to use the offside hand as well. Not a lot, but enough so that a life-saving last ditch effort won't be your "first time" at it. You can learn a lot...

    Putting down a beloved dog is the hardest thing I've ever done in my whole life. Bill, my Britany, was about 17 as nearly as I could figure, and he finally got to where he'd just lay there and whimper and squeal. I knew it was time, but could not...

    Ask for the name and number of the local postal inspector. They work within and know the ropes, and are generally pretty sharp. One of my wife's cousins was one, and he got some deserving people fired for such things as this. And he'll know how...

    Amen to all above! I don't think it's any coincidence that we had the "Gay 1890's" that was followed by the Spanish American and WWI. Or that we had the "Roaring 20's," and then WWII. We just, as a species, don't seem to learn from the past, nor...
