Amy - I know it's kinda late to post a 'gripe' or 'pet peeve' - but it's been a busy day - and I wanted to get this one in.

I have a cell phone and that is all I use for long distance. I cancelled my land line long distance calling plan, as I was spending over $250 a month.

So.....when I want to talk to my kids, or a friend that lives out of my calling area, I use my cell phone to reach them, and it costs nothing!

My pet peeve is this:

They can operate a robot on the planet Mars by remote control here on Earth.
But, they can't keep a cell phone connected between the kitchen and livingroom!!!
Or...if you are a passenger in a car..........between two rocks on the road!

Open mic Tuesday....well my open mouth says NO RINO ROMNEY! I am sick and tired of drinking the former grand old party's Koolaid of voting for the lesser of 2 evils. Which still gets you EVIL, and takes you down the path of socialisim, and marxism. If it takes 4 more years of 0 to wake this country up and do what our Founding Fathers did, so be it.

I WILL NOT VOTE FOR RINO ROMNEY! I have to stand before my GOD and explain why I voted for a baby killer like romney.

A Better Place

June 6, 2012

When my friend Marci’s father-in-law passed away, she stopped making his favorite dessert: pineapple salad. One day, her little boy asked why she no longer served it. She replied, “It reminds me of Papa, and it makes me sad; Papa really liked that dessert.” Her son replied in a chipper tone, “Not better than heaven!”

That little boy had the right idea. Heaven is a much better place. Remembering this can help ease our sadness when things on earth trigger memories of believing loved ones who have passed away. Our friends and family who have heavenly addresses are much happier there because:

Heaven is God’s home. God’s followers will enjoy His presence for all eternity (Rev. 21:3-4).

Heaven is comfortable in every way. Heaven’s residents will never be sick or upset (21:4), hungry or thirsty (7:16).

Heaven is a beautiful place. A “clear as crystal” river will flow from God’s throne (22:1), and God Himself will give heaven its light (22:5).

Do things in this world sometimes remind you of believers who have moved on to the next world? If so, it’s comforting to think that they are now enjoying heaven—a better place by far.

If God has made this world so fair,
Where sin and death abound,
How beautiful beyond compare
Will paradise be found! —Montgomery
The pleasures of earth cannot be compared to the joys of heaven.

Read: Revelation 21:4-11

God Himself will be with them and be their God. —Revelation 21:3
Bible in a Year:
Psalms 37-39

We are so happy today.

Last night, I felt so relieved.

I can only imagine November’s election night, and the joy we will feel when our country is free from tyranny.

Last evening I heard a program on God's Learning Channel, (http://www.godslearningchannel.com/site/index.php named “heart of the Shepherd&rdquo); being 4 pastors;s teaching on being a pastor, unity, responsibilities, not assuming responsibilities that rightfully are not theirs, and all thing concerning being a Pastor. It is a weekly program. (GLC largely teaches and focuses on Jewish Roots teaching. Which is the basis of all. God changes not, He is the same today, yesterday and tomorrow. Hebrews

There was a comment I found most interesting. It was ... paraphrased ...
‘Adam and Eve were in the garden of Eden, God took complete care of them ... all was provided and readily available, When thy sinned and were cast out of the garden ... the curse was ... they were to be SELF Sufficient!!! That is the problem still today. It is self sufficiency that keeps us from completely surrendering our life to God and His Will for us, and serving God ever.

Consider this a bit.

Amy's Place is active and has numerous regular posters, it will be fine in all likelihood, it may be a little less active but “no worries: As Crocodile Dundee, says.

Summer is a time for family activities vacations, etc. Thank you, Amy for the constant attention you have given the thread, for all this time. Let's see how it does on its own so to speak.

God bless this thread and all those that post to it, in Jesus name amen....

Amy, you have done an incredible job with Amy's Place for years and years. It has been my pleasure and privilege to be a part of Amy's Place and Billie's Finest for too many years to count. I have enjoyed creating graphics for both of you and have met and made some life-long friends. The people who have made Amy's such a warm, inviting and enjoyable place to hang out are some of the finest people I've ever met anywhere. I wish they all were my next door neighbors. How great that would be!

If anyone deserves time off, you do. You are an amazing person, juggling many responsibilities. I've often wondered how you keep up. Listen to me now......You should NOT feel guilty for one minute when you are not able to be here. You can only spread yourself so thin.

Thanks for keeping the doors open, even when you can't be here. Amy's FRiends will still have a place to come and will stop by when they can. Now, you go and take some well-deserved time for yourself.

HUGS backatcha, Amy! Billie, wherever you are...love you too, friend!

I have been gone for over 3 weeks and luckily I came today and saw this post. I'm glad you won't close it down Amy, you have the most wonderful group here and they enjoy chatting and being together, supporting each other with prayers when needed. I love this group, even though I'm not often here, and I thank all of you who keep me on your ping lists.

Spot on to Mama Bears comments.

Amy, I am not here often but know it is a wonderful group of patriots and friends who visit & share. Family must come first. Posting ONE POST A MONTH TO OPEN THE DOOR... well, it is sufficient. It is your way of each month saying “hi”, I love everyone, and carry on.

Yorkie, this is positively a wonderful graphic

love to all from Ohio.. where life is sweet despite being difficult.
