  1. Happy Birthday, I hope you had a great day. (I'm not late, it's still today on my side of the world.)
  2. Many times animal emergencies have grasp us, they can be so heart wrenching. In my prayers...
  3. God laid it on our hearts, we've been through times where our 'preps' were exclusively used & we believe we should be prepared for all contingencies.
  4. Watching the news this morning, they said the storm wasn't over and could pick up again. Still praying you all are OK.
  5. Haven Ministries: Anchor Devotional Restoring Lost Love “Forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love.” (Colossians 3:13-14) Isaac and Rebecca’s love for each other began with answered prayer (Genesis 24:12-17). Later, they were divided in their affections. Isaac had a special tie to his son Esau, while Rebecca favored Jacob. This, no doubt, caused tension. Are you in a relationship where affection and trust have degenerated into mistrust and anger? Paul gives us helpful advice in three parts in Colossians so we don’t become hardened and bitter. First, we need to “bear with each other” (3:13). It’s easy to lose our cool and react negatively. But bearing patiently with each other provides a basis for rebuilding bridges rather than burning them. Secondly, we are to forgive, regardless of an admission of guilt from the other party. Ask yourself, “Can I pray for this person?” If so, you are ready to forgive. Thirdly, we are to “put on love.” It defines us. With the Lord‘s help, we can remain gracious and civil. Don’t let the habit of justifying resentment take hold. Begin a new course of action that will restore your relationships rather than divide. INSIGHT: Restoring lost love is not up to me alone, but a restoring attitude is. Lord, keep me free from the poison of resentment. ------------------------------------------------------- It's water therepy for me today, I hope everyone has a wonderful day.
  6. I'm busted! Rational Portrait of the Mastermind (INTJ) All Rationals are good at planning operations, but Masterminds are head and shoulders above all the rest in contingency planning. Complex operations involve many steps or stages, one following another in a necessary progression, and Masterminds are naturally able to grasp how each one leads to the next, and to prepare alternatives for difficulties that are likely to arise any step of the way. Trying to anticipate every contingency, Masterminds never set off on their current project without a Plan A firmly in mind, but they are always prepared to switch to Plan B or C or D if need be. Masterminds are rare, comprising no more than, say, one percent of the population, and they are rarely encountered outside their office, factory, school, or laboratory. Although they are highly capable leaders, Masterminds are not at all eager to take command, preferring to stay in the background until others demonstrate their inability to lead. Once they take charge, however, they are thoroughgoing pragmatists. Masterminds are certain that efficiency is indispensable in a well-run organization, and if they encounter inefficiency-any waste of human and material resources-they are quick to realign operations and reassign personnel. Masterminds do not feel bound by established rules and procedures, and traditional authority does not impress them, nor do slogans or catchwords. Only ideas that make sense to them are adopted; those that don't, aren't, no matter who thought of them. Remember, their aim is always maximum efficiency. In their careers, Masterminds usually rise to positions of responsibility, for they work long and hard and are dedicated in their pursuit of goals, sparing neither their own time and effort nor that of their colleagues and employees. Problem-solving is highly stimulating to Masterminds, who love responding to tangled systems that require careful sorting out. Ordinarily, they verbalize the positive and avoid comments of a negative nature; they are more interested in moving an organization forward than dwelling on mistakes of the past. Masterminds tend to be much more definite and self-confident than other Rationals, having usually developed a very strong will. Decisions come easily to them; in fact, they can hardly rest until they have things settled and decided. But before they decide anything, they must do the research. Masterminds are highly theoretical, but they insist on looking at all available data before they embrace an idea, and they are suspicious of any statement that is based on shoddy research, or that is not checked against reality. Alan Greenspan, Ben Bernanke, Dwight D. Eisenhower, General Ulysses S. Grant, Frideriche Nietsche, Niels Bohr, Peter the Great, Stephen Hawking, John Maynard Keynes, Lise Meitner", Ayn Rand and Sir Isaac Newton are examples of Rational Masterminds.
  7. Thank you for sharing. My grandmother used to read that book to me when I was very little. I must admit I didn't always seek God first either. Are you kidding, I didn't have the time, there was always too much to do, too many intruptions. Then, during a time of great difficulity, I found myself clinging to my bible desparately searching for answers. In due season the answers came. Now, if I don't spend time with the Lord first thing in the morning, I feel so empty and confused all day.
  8. Oh dear, I would be in trouble. I guess I would wait until after receiving notice that my businesses were not complient with the new law and then I would have to take action, depending on the consequences. I wouldn't be silent, but I wouldn't broadcast, I would continue to share my faith with caution and descretion.
  9. You sound like you're enjoying your adventure. My dad was a carpenter... table saws give me the willies. It was nice to hear you had some help.
