Good news is that you can vote Obama out come next year.
Sure hope so..what a disaster!
good for you and I wish you well, I really do and we’re going on 16 years too
thank you for making a post which is from experience and a happy one too, hope you and your family have a good and healthy future.
but you feel the need to but in
beautiful post from your experience and heart, it’s late here but I will reply privately tomorrow if I have time if you dn’t mind.
I would love to carry this on but I’m so tired right now, so I’m sorry
I’m 57 and just heard from a Relative about a couple of my Aunts and Uncles who beat a path to the Courthouse because there was a bun in the oven. That was over fifty years ago.
I wonder if a couple of my Cousins are privy to their interesting start in life.
It takes a while for all the skeletons to fall out of the closet, but they all eventually do. Human nature is a constant.
Pity the man that short changes a woman. LOL
You are getting your Anglican Archbishops confused.
The Primate of All England and the Primate of England are not the same person. And yes, they have been seen together.
They are easy to tell apart. Canterbury wears a black cassock and has a beard. York wears a red cassock and doesn't.
(And the main thing he has said about gay bishops is that youse Americans should stop appointing them)
So Canterbury is the one on the right? Wow, they could be twins!
shotgun, shovel, and a large backyard. LOL I spit out my soda when I read that.
In this case, and only this case, I can see why they lived together first. Remember, William saw the wicked press practically chase his mom right into the the casket. From everything I’ve read of William, he’s been very protective of his Kate, worried about her safety and well-being. It’s perfectly natural for him to want her to experience that kind of scrutiny for a long period of time, to ensure that she was able to tolerate that. Evidently, he told her she was “the one” way back in 2007 or so. I can find no evidence that he was simply using Kate (i.e. the cow/milk analogy). I don’t think he was taking a “test drive” of her body parts, so much as he was her sturdiness. That is normally where the criticism of shacking up comes from; it’s for a guy to take advantage of a gal and avoid the responsibility of marriage. This sounds to me more like he wanted to make sure she’d be willing to put up with the crap that would go along with being married to him.
OTOH, had Diana lived with Mr. Global Warming for a couple of years first, she might have realized that he never did cut off things with Cruella, and saved herself years of heartbreak.
I wish these two young people the best, in any event.
The only one big concern I did have about the royal wedding that did take place was it would overshadow the making of blessed of John Paul II. But from after having viewed the vigil last night and the 30 minutes I got up to see the process of him being my blessed early this morning before going back to sleep, and with the thousands and thousands of people there, I realized this special event was not overshadowed in the least! Praise be to God!:)=^..^=
Thanks for your comments. My intent was to uphold the ideal of monogamous marriage as a lifelong commitment - with sexuality as a part of that union. Many strive for that despite earlier mistakes and failures. It is commendable that you did make the commitment to marry, and I wish you many more (hopefully happy) years together.
“but you feel the need to but in”
You were ill-informed and asking for information. I gave it to you. If that’s butting in, then you’ll just have to deal with it.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts as to why so many appear to experience no guilt in engaging in behavior which traditionally has been considered improper or immoral - such as cohabitation and engaging in sexual relations before marriage.
I am reminded of the words of Jesus: “Man looks on the outward appearance, but God looks on the heart.” We can be very clever at disguising our true emotions, and superficially, one would get the impression that many people are not troubled by their behavior. But we don’t know what is going on inside. It’s like couples who seem to have the “perfect marriage” - until everyone is shocked to learn they are divorcing. We don’t know what goes on behind closed doors - or inside people’s hearts.
Actually, the ability to feel guilt is a normal response. The Bible speaks of those who have their “conscience seared” and who apparently have lost the ability to feel remorse for their sin. The souls of such are in mortal danger. If we feel regret for what we have done, there remains hope that we will respond to God’s forgiveness.
And this is the wonderful thing: there is always hope as long as we are willing to reach out to God, and He always has a “revised” Plan ready for those of us who have made a mess of Plan A, or Plan B - some of us are working on Plan X...
All the best.
LOL Deal with what, you , please my sides are spltting
