  1. Looking at published court decisions, its glaringly obvious that various members of the legal system perpetuate criminal behavior for job security. I tend to wonder if members of certain sects of religion do things to perpetuate low self esteem in people for their job security, as well.

      oooooh, a question for the forum. I would expect good participation in that one !

  2. "Darkness can just exist with zero expenditure of energy. Light requires an outlay of energy to radiate. Which actually proves the old quote that all that is required for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing. No expenditure of energy, no light, darkness reigns." Mark Luljak

  5. A true friend doesn't care when you're broke, being a bitch, what you weigh, if your house is a mess, what you drive, about your past, or if your family is filled with crazy people. Your conversations pick up where they left off, even if they have been years apart.They love you for who you are. ...Re-post if you have at least one true friend. They will know who they are

  6. Let's see how creative my Facebook friends are.... Leave me a 1-word comment that best describes me using the THIRD letter of YOUR FIRST name.... It can only be 1 word.... Then copy and paste this to your wall so I can leave a word about you.... Don't just post a word & not copy.... That's no fun (reposted)

  7. Everyone have a blessed and happy new year!

Matthew 23:13 NIV (Yeah, I am in a mood this morning--I woke up thinking about my patient that died yesterday. It was a hospice case, so it was expected)

      although people may be in hospice care and the demise is known or expected to be, the shock and surreal quality are still there: My Dad was in a hospice then nursing home befroe his death-I still expected him to recover-I was denying the extent of his illness.

  10. There are insanities being tolerated all over the place. I tell people: Currently one in every 33 people you encounter is bipolar. I guess because I was raised by one I have a tendency to more fully understand the impact of that statement. Bipolar people are pathological liars. Bipolar people will go out of thier way to manipulate the situation to fit their reality, including murder. Bipolar people, when angered, have the strength of 4-6 grown men. People who are in ignorance of the powers of persuasion that bipolar people have tend to go along with them, until they realize, "This is nu
  11. Just so you know--there are places in the bible that refer to other books...and the bible is not the only book on the earth that refers to God. It was translated under the authority of King James: "James gave the translators instructions intended to guarantee that the new version would conform to the ecclesiology and reflect the episcopal structure of the Church of England and its beliefs about an ordained clergy."and also please note: "The Authorized King James Version is an English translation of the Christian Holy Bible begun in 1604 and completed in 1611 by the Church of England.[3] Print
  12. I have not read anything or heard anything that convinces me that we don't worship the same God, regardless of what we call Him/Her/It... I guess I am just trying to light a fire under fatalists who shrug and say that is the way it is. Of course it is if we sit and let it happen. My best friend is a Wiccan Priestess. We discuss our beliefs openly with each other and respect each other's 'religious' affiliations. It just makes us part of who we are. She was sent to me by the Almighty, of that I have no doubt. Not for me to try and 'convert' her, but to understand and respect her beliefs a

  15. I was made aware of this problem by a Muslim-turned-Christian Minister who is trying to stay under the radar so that he can continue his ministry. He is clothing, feeding, and educating his people. General education, not just religious. So no, I don't think it would matter much.
  16. http://www.christianpost.com/article/20101124/muslims-protest-possible-pardon-for-pakistani-christian-woman/ A group of hard-line Muslims, including many students from Islamic schools, protested Wednesday in the city of Lahore against a possible presidential pardon for a Pakistani Christian woman sentenced to death for alleged blasphemy. Please follow the link to read more. The one thing that we are all supposed to be in agreement on is that people have the right to choose, correct? Isn't this why we became ordained through the ULC? Um, this is going on right now, in the 21st century, and we

  19. Love the quotes...I copy and paste them to FB and look somewhat intelligent! LOL

  20. Had an interesting chat with a court clerk today. In talking about the fact that my (bipolar) sister is once again trying to find some way to 'control' me, our discussion turned to the fact that the criminals are taking over the county. She said, "You are preaching to the choir, here." I said, "Well, we will just have to take it back from them!" She said, "Peop...

  23. This morning was so ♥awesome♥ that I have to share: I went for a ♦job interview♦(formality) at 10am, and spent most of the time counseling, enlightening, and praying with my interviewer! And the best part is that we were in JITB in McKinney. She drove from Commerce, I drove from Sherman!
