  1. @ayin jade I praise God you're doing better. I was definitely wondering about that tooth situation... Dental work can be so painful. Didn't know about the frozen shoulder. Thanks for the update. I'll continue praying.
  2. @ayin jade Hi. How are you? I've been praying for you.
  3. Genesis 9:3 - Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things.
  4. I slid on the linoleum floor in my kitchen. Now my left knee and back are hurting. Please pray God takes away the pain and that it not be anything serious. Also, the neurological problems in my face are kicking up. (They've been especially bad this week.)
  5. @Debp Praying for God's healing touch for you. I found that sometimes honey lemon lozenges can be soothing. I hope you feel better soon.
  6. “For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil.” (1 Peter 3:12)
  7. @Sonshine☀️I love this uplifting post! Such beautiful truths in it.
  8. So a book of remembrance was written before Him On the day I make them my jewels
  9. Used to eat one similar to this... (only once in a blue moon, mind you) Don't think mine were stacked quite that high, though lol BBQ TANGLER BURGER Sweet BBQ sauce, Cheddar cheese, Applewood smoked bacon, crunchy Onion Tanglers®, lettuce, tomato, sweet red onions and pickles on a warm brioche bun...(minus the pickles) They could title this 'the burger for big mouths' Fries? Curly...dipped into ranch dressing
  10. Jesus is all the world to me: My life, my joy, my all. He is my strength from day to day; Without Him I would fall. When I am sad, to Him I go; No other one can cheer me so. When I am sad, He makes me glad; He's my Friend. Jesus is all the world to me, My Friend in trials sore. I go to Him for blessings, and He gives them o'er and o'er. He sends the sunshine and the rain; He sends the harvest's golden grain: Sunshine and rain, harvest of grain-- He's my Friend. Jesus is all the world to me, And true to Him I'll be. Oh, how could I this Friend deny When He's so true to me? Following Him I know I'm right; He watches o'er me day and night. Following Him by day and night, He's my Friend. Jesus is all the world to me, I want no better friend. I trust Him now; I'll trust Him when Life's fleeting days shall end. Beautiful life with such a Friend; Beautiful life that has no end! Eternal life, eternal joy, He's my Friend.
  11. Jump on in to Worthy. Glad you have joined us here! Hi, Zachary
  12. I'll be praying God gives you a new beginning (provision) and also for the situation in your country.
  13. @Daily verse and quote Thanks for this wonderful passage. I hope it is okay with you if I post something here that I personally found helpful and uplifting. It is a bit long but worth the read, imo. Benson Commentary Php 1:21-23. For to me to live is Christ — As my life, both natural and spiritual, is from Christ, so to serve and enjoy him is the supreme end of my life, and I value it only as it is capable of being employed in glorifying him, to know, love, and follow whom, is my glory and my joy. But if I live in the flesh, &c. — Here he begins to treat of the former clause of the preceding verse: of the latter he treats Php 2:17. This is the fruit of my labour — This is the fruit of my living longer, that I can labour more. Glorious labour, desirable fruit! In this view long life is indeed a blessing.Yet what I shall choose I know not — That is, if it were left to my own choice. For I am in a strait betwixt two — The two things mentioned immediately. The original expression, συνεχομαι εκ των δυο, is translated by Doddridge, I am borne two different ways, it being, he thinks, an allusion to a ship stationed at a particular place, and riding at anchor, and at the same time likely to be forced to sea by the violence of the winds; presenting us with a lively representation of the apostle’s attachment to his situation in the Christian Church, and the vehemence of his desire to be unbound, as αναλυσαι may be rendered, that is, to weigh anchor, and set sail for the heavenly country. Having a desire — Επιθυμιαν, a coveting, orstrong desire, as Macknight renders the word; see on 2 Corinthians 5:4; 2 Corinthians 5:8 : to depart — To have my soul separated from my body, and to escape from bonds, the flesh, and the world; and to be with Christ — In paradise, Luke 23:43; admitted to the immediate, full, and constant enjoyment of him, in comparison whereof the nearest access to him, and fullest enjoyment of him in this world, are but absence. Which is far better — Greek,πολλω μαλλον κρεισσον, by much far better. Or, as Dr. Doddridge renders the clause, is better beyond all expression. Indeed, as the doctor observes, the apostle seems to labour for expression, using the highest superlative which it is perhaps possible to form in any language. It is justly observed by the last-mentioned writer, that this text plainly proves the separate spirits of good men are with Christ immediately after the death of their bodies, in such a manner that their state is far better than while they continue in this world; which certainly a state of insensibility, or the sleep of the soul, which some maintain, cannot possibly be. Some indeed think the apostle might speak thus though the soul sinks into insensibility at death; because, say they, in that case, the time between death and judgment must be reckoned as nothing. But, as Dr. Whitby justly observes, “could St. Paul think a state of insensibility much better than a life tending so much as his did to the glory of God, to the propagation of the gospel, and the furtherance of the joy of Christians? Could he call such an insensate state a being with Christ, and awalking by sight, in opposition to the life of faith?” 2 Corinthians 5:7-8. Certainly it is at least evident from what the apostle here says, if there be any such middle state of insensibility between death and the resurrection, he had no knowledge or expectation of it; for if he had known of any such state, he undoubtedly would have thought it a thousand times better to live, and promote the cause of Christ and religion on earth, than by dying to fall into it. Besides, how could he say that he had a desire to be with Christ, if he knew he was not to be with him till after the resurrection? This, however, will not at all disprove the doctrine which maintains that pious men will receive a large accession of happiness after the resurrection: a truth declared in many other passages of Scripture. “The use of philosophy, it hath been said, is to teach men to die. But, as Fielding has observed, one page of the gospel is more effectual for that purpose than volumes of philosophy. The assurance which the gospel gives us of another life is, to a good mind, a support much stronger than the stoical consolation drawn from the necessity of nature, the order of things, the emptiness of our enjoyments, the satiety which they occasion, and many other such topics, which, though they may arm the mind with stubborn patience in bearing the thought of death, can never raise it to a fixed contempt thereof, much less can they make us consider it as a real good, and inspire us with the desire of dying, such as the apostle on this occasion strongly expressed.” — Macknight.
  14. This song is a comfort to me and I hope it will be to you, too.
  15. @marvelloustime Thanks for that encouragement.
  16. @Sonshine☀️ Sure does. I just found out from IainL that you are correct. They get downright ornary. And then I looked up the speed of this bird to see if it could be outrun...Forget about it! The average running speed of an ostrich is approximately 30 mph, a speed it is able to maintain for up to 10 miles at a stretch. Thanks for the warning.
  17. I believe you. But I've not heard of this chain before. I looked it up and found this sweet story I wanted to share. June 3, 2019, 4:34 PM CDT / Source: TODAY Like many dogs, Stitch, a black Labrador retriever, absolutely loved beefy burgers. So when Stitch's owner Maci Hanson and her family discovered that their beloved dog's days were numbered, they knew they wanted to honor him with something special. Since his favorite food was a Whataburger Jr. (eaten plain, of course), Hanson came up with an idea to throw her dog an end-of-life party with his favorite meal from the Texas-based chain. On May 21, Hanson tweeted to Whataburger in hopes of recruiting someone from the brand's team who could help. Hey @Whataburger! This is Stitch and he is your #1 four-legged customer. His favorite is a Whataburger Jr. plain and dry with cheese and sometimes fries if he’s been an extra good boy! Today we found out Stitch has lymphoma and his time with us is limited. We want to throw him a Whataburger themed celebration of life party. Can you help us celebrate this sweet boy and his love of cheeseburgers? According to Vicki Burlew, Hanson's mother who also tweeted out updates about the family's beloved pet, the Whatburger team got in touch with the family so they could send a care package to their home. When it arrived, the box was filled with plenty of orange supplies (and food) for a good, old fashioned burger blowout. On May 25, the family threw Stitch a patty-filled party — surrounding him with beef, Whataburger balloons, cute party hats and lots and lots of snuggles. As the heartwarming story went viral, Whataburger also posted about its "most pure and deserving Whatafan." Many tweeters chimed in saying that their furry friends had savored their last moments with a Whataburger, too.
  18. Hello @marvelloustime Yes. You and I definitely share that longing in common. Along with our moms passing on recently. How are you doing? I hope you have a sunny day by you?
  19. Wow. You guys are really making me hungry. I'm learning a lot here. There sure is diversity in how people like their burgers. The ostrich one freaked me out at first. But when I was assured it was both nutritious and filling, I reconsidered. Why filling? Well- think about it. Feast your eyes on the size. Just kidding... I realize there is no way you could get all of 'big bird' there on a bun. HEY NOW! ARE YOU TALKIN' ABOUT ME??
