  • Interests
    Sailing on dry land, photography, artistic painting, decorative concrete, craftmanship in all things, things with motors, working with my hands, Worthy Ministries, the church I attend, my friends and family, the church universal, Bible study, fossils, marine aquariums, computers, building websites, politics a little, but especially my Lord and Savior, Jesus the Christ, Creator of the universe. These are a few of my favorite things. I enjoy free will, and what I believe about it is:

    You are free to choose to do what you want to do,
    but you are not free to choose what it is, that you want to do,
    nor are you necessarily able, to do what you choose to do!

  1. I watch my starch intake some, and my sweets and fats. I have lost over 100 pounds, still a few to go though. For me, part of what makes losing weight a bit easier, is to not deny myself every thing I like, instead, I use these things as a bit of a reward for doing well on my diet efforts. Otherwise it is the self denial, that is tempting me to fail! Sort of like what Paul said in 1 Cor 7 about abstinence in marriage!
  2. Sorry that your feelings are hurt Felix, and that you find it necessary to leave. Feelings are under our control, they are our reaction to events. Sometimes people will not apologize when they believe they have not don't anything wrong. In any case, I commend you for for not being vindictive in how you responded to the perceived injustice, and taking this to the "important person" one on one, and not making it personal by dragging names into the public forum. I wish that more would act as maturely as you have.

  4. I ran across this today, and thought it noteworthy. However, I have a disclaimer: The worthwhile content, is in the audio, by Paul Harvey. That has been overlaid with a sort of political slideshow, by the creator of the video. My disclaimer is, that the images selected by the video creator are his own choices, and his own interpretation of what Mr. Harvey said, as applied to moderm political events. I am not endorsing the images. Many will find them appropriate, many will not. I did not find them irrelevant, but I think the video is better, if you just close you eyes, and listen to the words. I suspect that few will do that, but that is my recommendation.
  5. Here is a close-up of the plant/flower, and a cat tossed in for scale as well!
  6. Hi, this part of the forum is for introducing yourself, and being welcomed by other, so Welcome! I am moving this to a more appropriate location.
  7. This is the Welcome forum, for self introduction and people welcoming you. Moving this to a more appropriate location. Welcome though!
  8. No, but I do not know what it is called, I should find out. These flowers are much smaller that the flowers on iceplant, and the whole plant is tiny also. I did learn though, that this happens when we get a decent amount of rain, followed by early warm weather, it tricks the plants into thinking it is spring time. It does not happen often, talking to neighbors here, they do not recall ever having seen it like this.
  9. This is the welcome thread, so welcome! Doctrinal / theological questions and discussions, have their own areas.
  10. Felix, it is not complicated, there is no do this and that list that earns your way to heaven. It is much simpler than that. Do you believe that Jesus is Lord, the master, has the right to demand your devotion and obedience? That is what it means to be Lord. Do you believe that He died, and that God raised Him bodily back to life? If you can answer those in the affirmative, then you have been given the faith that marks a person who has been saved from Hell, and is Heaven bound. Then there are things, that are indicators, yardsticks to give us assurance that this is the camp we are in. These do not get us to heaven, but they are characteristics of those who are going to heaven . . . That we desire and have a measure of success, in obeying God. That we have love for our brothers and sisters in Christ. That we persevere in these thing to the end ofrout lives. It is a pass fail situation, there is not 50%, no shades of gray. We are saved by the grace of God, not by anything we do, or we are not saved at all. I deleted the link you provide to the "details", as it is not appropriate to this community, and could only serve to confuse people and cause doubts.
  11. Welcome Aussiemum. There are two ways to interact with others here (as well as some sub-features like messaging). The first is the forums, where you are reading this. There a conversation can go one for years, but there can be considerable delay between comments, but that also allows for some really in depth conversations and the time to be thoughtful. I also allows for people to read what you say, also perhaps for years, allowing you to impact many. Hopefully, we have the good sense to only say things, that we wish we could take back. The second coversation type, is our chatroom. There things happen in real time, almost like a phone conversation, but because of the number of participants, it is a bit like a conferance call. It can be busy and hard to keep up with sometimes, and fairly inactive at other times. I hope you find your time among us to be worthwhile.
