  1. St. Augustine - "He that is kind is free, though he is a slave; he that is evil is a slave, though he be a king."
     

  2. Whew! Thank goodness this week wasn't a thick as last week with my college class! Last week, I had to work three days straight (around 16 + hours total) to get through the reading and the assignment. This week I finished in a day (still, around 5 hours,) to get through the reading, an assignment, and my first test. (got a 90%) First week made me nervous. Now that I know it was abnormal, i can relax. 😁 I got this.

      It's an online, 8 week class.

      Nice! 

       

      😄 I have a few family members I would love for you to teach how to do a basic google fact check! 😆 Seriously, what gives!?! 🙄😋

      I hear a lot of them are doing online right now. How are you enjoying a digital classroom? 

  3. God bless America!

     

    the land of the free, home of the brave

     

    perhaps not perfect, but the best we’ve ever found in all of history. 
     

    All I can say is shame on all who are attempting to rewrite our history - to paint our nation as a godless, racist nation. So far from the truth, the founders quoted the Bible more than two times more than any other source and the 3/5ths compromise was actually touted as the death knell for slavery and the founders were quoted as saying they believed slavery would eventually die out from their policies. 
     

    regardless of the intricacies of the philosophies, all historical aspects should always be judged from within the historical context from which it comes, not from our drastically different modern culture. 
     

    we must also be wary of reverse racism. I fear the illiteracy of historical knowledge in our nation and pray for revival. May the truth shine out from the dark, and the truth shall set them free. 

  4. Some rather great quotes by Thomas a Kempis...

     

    "No man doth safely rule, but he that hath learned gladly to obey."

     

    "Nothing is sweeter than love, nothing stronger or higher or wider, nothing is more pleasant, nothing fuller, and nothing better in heaven or on earth, for love is born of God and cannot rest except in God."

     

    "Remain tranquil and prepare to bear still greater trials. All is not lost even though you be troubled oftener or tempted more grievously. You are a man, not God. You are flesh, not an angel. How can you possibly expect to remain always in the same state of virtue when the angels in heaven and the first man in paradise failed to do so? I am He who rescues the afflicted and brings to My divinity those who know their own weakness."

     

    "The more humble and obedient to God a man is, the more wise and at peace he will be in all that he does."

     

    "The more the flesh is wasted by affliction, so much more is the Spirit strengthened by inward grace."

     

    "Be not angry that you cannot make others as you wish them to be, since you cannot make yourself as you wish to be."

     

    "I have often heard, that it is safer to hear and to take counsel, than to give it."

     

    "If God were our one and only desire we would not be so easily upset when our opinions do not find outside acceptance."
     

     

     

  5. Welcome! That's an amazing testimony. Thank you so much for sharing! That was also a cool story about writing at the end. Glad you're here!
  6. Welcome! And great question. I learned that I enjoy writing children/young adult fantasy, and I also learned how to write in first person... getting a little better at showing rather than telling, but still have a long way to go. 😁
  7. Elisabeth Elliot - "Fear arises when we imagine that everything depends on us."


    Elisabeth Elliot - "If you believe in a God who controls the big things, you have to believe in a God who controls the little things. It is we, of course, to whom things look 'little' or 'big'."

      Oh, I like those! Thanks for sharing. 

  8. Edmund Burke - "Freedom and not servitude is the cure of anarchy; as religion, and not atheism, is the true remedy for superstition."
     

     

    Same man who said,  "All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing."   He said some wise things!
