Mark Bailey : My daughter has somehow taken over the lead role in my dating. She said she is going to start picking my dates. This seems so backwards. Btw. She is the one that suggested mad dog 20/20 to take instead of beer or wine as a gift. 1 hour ago - View -
Ray Comfort : “Philosophy is like being in a dark room and looking for a black cat. Metaphysics is like being in a dark room and looking for a black cat that isn’t there. Theology is like being in a dark room and looking for a black cat that isn’t there and shouting, “I've found it!” Science is like being in a dark room and looking for a black cat using a flashlight.” Leonie Trent
And Christianity is like finding the cat, in the light of the noonday sun. 2 hours ago - View -
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar : Homosexuality has never been considered a crime in Hindu culture. In fact, Lord Ayyappa was born of Hari-Hara (Vishnu & Shiva). It is not a crime in any Smriti. Everyone has male & female elements. According to their dominance, tendencies show up & may change. Nobody should face discrimination because of their sexual preferences. To be branded a criminal for this is absurd. 2 hours ago - View -

Native American - Honoring our Ancestors, Culture & Spirituality : Black Dutch? Black Irish?
Are you a full blood? Half blood? Quarter blood? How many of you know you have Native blood but have no way of tracing it? It's called Blood Quantum and it began after European contact and colonization....forced assimilation, another way of reducing the American Indian population. Those who chose not to assimilate ventured off on their own and took on new identities in order to purchase land in areas which the United States treaties and other laws had reserved for European descendants only. Many, mainly from the 5 civilized tribes of the southeast changed their names and claimed to be Black Irish or Black Dutch to explain the dark skin tones and to purchase land. Once they owned the land, these families who had escaped the forced removal would NOT admit to their Native American heritage, for fear of losing their property. Sound familiar?

Mordeth13 : Remember my recent post about my son getting me a bicycle for my birthday and how happy I was about it? Well....my wife showed me her gift today. She showed me a day before my birthday because we planned on going to the mall to see a movie today.....and if I didn't like the gift then we could exchange it. So...I didn't like it. And said "Yeah, we'll need to exchange it." and she......yep....she yelled at me for almost an hour straight and said she's not going to return it....instead she'll give it to her brother who will appreciate it. And then she went off by herself to see the movie. Now I'm just sitting at home trying to get work done on the computer while battling depression. Actually thought this birthday was going to be a good one with my son getting me a bicycle and all. Shoulda known better.
And yes, I hate people who whine about their personal life on FB too. But I don't do it too often....so cut me some slack. 2 hours ago - View -

Amber Canon : I just got a comment that really bothered me, & I didn't think of it, but yes Chris did just get 3200 worth of tools stolen that we can not replace ASAP, that is why I'm trying to raise it back for him, this is something I want to do for him, & yes I am getting my hair done, I was going to the store to buy 2 box's of box dye at 8.99 each & had a 3.50 off $10 coupon .. so I can stop paying out money each month to touch up my blonde, when I heard they have a deal for $40 for color & I have a 20% off coupon so I called Chris & he had wanted to get my hair done as a Christmas gift. So I asked if he wanted to pay the extra $20 and I could have the salon experience, as any stressed out mother deserves, we just had to pay for the window, for Abigail's birthday party, Christmas & now save after Christmas to replace the main tools for Chris, I shouldn't have to explain myself, & I'm almost in tears thinking that anyone would think I need to stop my life & make me feel like a bad person for asking for donations from people who know Chris & knows he didn't deserve what happened to him & to receive a Christmas gift.. No one has 3200 to just hand out and can just replace stolen items in an instant ... Certainly not us, but being we are smart with our money & thankfully I'm able to treat myself here and their, we still need help, bottom line no one is ever prepared to have what happened to us happen.. & I just wish people didn't judge so crucially. 3 hours ago - View -

Angie Matthies Mershon : Man...it's super hard being a parent. I feel like i have no idea what i'm doing all the time and wonder if that little thing was worth getting mad about ya know, even feel like i'm constantly yelling at Bubba. But since this last time he was in trouble at school and i really put the smack down by taking away his birthday and making him earn it back he has been a changed kid. He is absolutely still naughty and all boy BUT now he stays with me in the store with his hand on the cart most of the time instead of running off and even helps. His room has been clean and he gets the dogs bones out and food in the bowl while i take them outside. When i come in the door he's sitting on the couch and says hi mommy with a big smile. Lol too cute! He's happier during school and hasn't been in trouble at all. I asked him this evening if i was a good mom and he told me yes. And yes he meant it! Lol. So i guess my point is, i must be doing an ok job if my kid thinks i'm doin pretty good no matter how often i yell at him and slap hard disciplines on him. There is no secret or magic to being a parent but as long as you love your kids with all your heart they will know it no matter what. I get a smile every day from that kid, i hope ya'll have slowed down a bit this holiday season to take in the important things (and people) ❤️ 3 hours ago - View -

Frank Somerville KTVU : I want to ask all of you a favor.
I just got this message from someone who sounds like she is on the verge of giving up. I’m not going to use her name.
But I will tell you that she’s from the Bay Area.
What she wrote to me was so heartfelt that I feel the need to share it. She wasn’t asking me for anything.
She was just hoping that I would listen.
And that maybe I could give her some words of encouragement.
Here’s is some of what she said:
"I am writing to you because i am lost.
This xmas season holds nothing good 4 me, ive lost everything.."
"What can you do for me?
I havent a clue but your posts are always uplifting and full of life, life that i no longer feel like participating in."
"We all need someone and i have no one!
We all need people to care but i have ruined that in my life.
any kind words you may have would be a gift to me right now as i have nothing to hold onto anymore."
"Just reaching out 2 someone who doesnt know me and is probably to busy to deal with my nonsense. But im hopeful still til the end!
Your sincere and dying to herself fan."
I’m figuring that right about now she needs to know that there are people out there who care.
And if there are any kind words you might have for her, I’m sure she would appreciate it.
And for the sake of this post, I will assume that if you hit “like” it’s your way of saying that you are thinking about her.
Maybe together we can make her realize that her "life IS worth participating in." 4 hours ago - View -
Practice Kindness : We had our first negative reaction out purchasing stuff for random people tonight. She was very unhappy with us and proceeded to say some very unkind things. We left the situation as quickly as possible as to keep the situation from escalating.
As I try to put myself in her shoes all I can think is that possibly she was insulted. Perhaps she thought we judged her as needy??
As this situation came up tonight I thought I'd try to turn this into an opportunity. I'm looking for your thoughts. What kind of take aways can I leave with? Do we need to change our approach? Do I need to accept that 1 in 100 might just take it wrong?
I'd like to be 100% clear to all of you. We are not judging people. We are not raising this money to go out and look specifically for people that need it. We are practicing RANDOM kindness. If we by chance get someone who needs it, then it is extra rewarding. But, what is wrong with getting someone who doesn't need the help once in awhile? My thoughts- If we happen to help somebody with means I can pretty much bet that they don't ever get help. People don't help people who don't need it. My belief is that if we end up helping a random person with means, the chances are that we make an impact so large on that person that they go pay it forward 10 times the amount we gave them in the first place. What's wrong with helping somebody who may not be needy of money? Nothing. We're all needy of kindness. 4 hours ago - View -

Kaylie Corbin : I had a table of the sweetest family come in tonight.. They told me they were celebrating the life of their Mother and Grandmother, who they called "BaBa." The world works in incredible ways, because I too lost my BaBa this week, at 91 years old; The woman who took care of me after school every day when I was little. I don't think I could have asked for a better person to have helped me grow up, and I know my parents are still so thankful to have had someone they could trust watching their daughter. The family left me a tip of $55.. A lot more than they should have, but they told me it was a gift from their loved one they lost, and a remembrance of the amazing lady I lost. I really don't think this family has any idea how many ways they touched my heart by telling me their story and listening to mine. People really need to stop the hurry of life, slow down. and spend time with the people they love. I am so glad I got this reminder tonight, because it couldn't have come at a better time❤️ 4 hours ago - View -
Amy Lindeman : So I need advice. Some people may not like what I'm gonna post. Get over it it's not about you. I've really been thinking a lot about adoption lately. I'm weighing the pros and cons and would never jump into something so big without deep thought. I never grew up with a big family or close family then and now. I want my kids to have that and I know they won't unless we have more kids. I will never have a baby of my own again. I didn't like being pregnant and would never do it again. I also feel that it would help my babies now be closer. We really miss out on alot of family togetherness and I feel my kids deserve to feel that love and family. Not that we don't do everything together. My brats are spoiled to the max and I would have it no other way. On the Con side. We're 27 and 28 with our youngest being 7. We had kids early so never got to have a...how would you put it? Childhood? Party years? I will only be 38 when my daughter is 18. I will never give up my full time job. I love working. And another jim doesn't really think it's even an option. And he lives a very self in flicked stressed life. So in the words of Jim. DISCUSS please :) 4 hours ago - View -
Pamela Vaughan : The plumbers who unexpectedly showed up today to replace the baseboards in our apartment for our electric-gas heat swap managed to expose one of Emmett's Christmas gifts. It was a big one, too -- a castle for his dragons and knights, which is on his Christmas list. The only thing I could tell him was that it was supposed to be a surprise Christmas gift from his dad and me, even though it was REALLY going to be from Santa. His response?
"If Santa gets me a castle, then I'll have TWO castles!"
Ugh. And I thought the dirt that was tracked throughout my apartment today was going to be the biggest nuisance from this whole ordeal. Thanks for the warning, Mr. Landlord. 5 hours ago - View -
April Roberts Brzezinski : I joked around how my sweet Craig was taking his time about this time last week. Craig and I knew his call and that God was/is up to something miraculous. I just don't think I thought it would hurt this bad. It is a pain so deep it aches in my bones. That's my earthly heart and selfish person wanting my lover, father of my children and best friend with me walking side by side. I'm so amazed at Craig's fight and how he walked with such dignity. Our children will look back and be in awe of his stature one day. I am completely covered by the Holy Spirit and honestly live day by day in a very peaceful place because I know God is holding me close to His heart. You see friends when you live for eternity you know that it might mean you give up everything for the Glory of His Kingdom. Lives have been changed and are continuing to change because Craig walked this beloved path that God laid out for him. It is my deepest honor to have been his chosen bride and the mother of his children. I'm blessed by your amazing friendship, love and support. Literally I'm blown away at it all! Jesus is real and He will never stop pursuing you! He will meet you in the darkest of nights and hold you. It is where I find refuge! I love you all so dearly! 5 hours ago - View -
