    A couple from North Carolina rescued a cat from a shelter. The kitty was so happy to have a home that he cuddled his human with both of his paws and didn't want to let go. DanDan and his wife Hannah were contacted by a volunteer of Chesapeake Cats and Dogs, a rescue in Maryland, about a cat needing immediate fostering. The 9-year-old cat who had been surrendered to a shelter in North Carolina, was in poor health. "I took the afternoon off work and drove an hour to get him," Dan told Love Meow. The cat was very...

    It’s my wedding anniversary today. I got married to Phelim McAleer 17 years ago. I got so lucky, I’m so grateful. It’s amazing how in this wide, big world, people get to sometimes find the love of their lives and spend the rest of their lives with them. It’s a miracle, a blessing, the most priceless gift. I tell anyone who wants to get married to treat meeting the right person like as if they have cancer. When people get cancer they are not casual about it, they are deadly serious and focused. They don’t chat to their friends and...

    “I will be so happy if my Lord Jesus Christ accepts me as one of His followers. Is it possible if I was born a Muslim?” That’s a question from a man in the Middle East who reached out to BGEA’s internet evangelism ministry, Search for Jesus, after hearing about Christ through Christian friends. Search for Jesus has over 500 trained volunteers ready to respond to online visitors with the hope of the Gospel. Two of those volunteers, Brian and Kimberly of North Carolina, spent years as missionaries to Muslims in Southeast Asia and now answer emails from Muslims around...

    It's not a matter of if your church and pastor will face these kinds of questions. It's a matter of when. Here's a scenario: a same-sex couple or someone openly living in a same-sex relationship starts to attend your church. Maybe they've got a child from another relationship or a child conceived through IVF. Because your church practices infant baptism, they ask to have their child baptized. What do you do? I recently heard of a church that faced this exact situation. A lesbian couple who'd been attending asked to have their child baptized. The church had theological convictions about...

The shelter decided to assign him a role to help socialize him, so he became the feline receptionist working alongside a staff...

'It depends,' I replied 'What does it say on your shirt?' He yelled back, ' OHIO STATE !' And they say blondes are dumb.... A couple is lying in bed. The...

    9.) Be happy to see him. Free him with a warm smile and show sincerity in your desire to please him. Listen to him. 10.) You may have a dozen important things to tell him, but the moment of his arrival is not the time. Let him talk first — remember, his topics of conversation are more important than yours. 11.) Make the evening his. Never complain if he comes home late or goes out to dinner, or other places of entertainment without you. Instead, try to understand his world of strain and pressure and his very real need to...

  • The dating swamp: How finding love in DC may be impossible for young Trump and GOP staffers

    Trying to find love in D.C. can be tricky. If you’re a young Trump administration staffer, it might be near impossible. GOP employees and other right-wingers have been complaining that dating in one of the most Democratic cities in America is a political minefield. They’ve been called out, flipped off and told they are personally responsible for the death of democracy. One 29-year-old lobbyist told Fox News that learning to date in a Trump world is “absolutely insane.” “It’s getting so bad,” the lobbyist, who asked to remain anonymous because she works with the administration, said.

  • Eternal Life Evidenced by love...themes 1 John pt 7

    We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death.( I John 3:14)We have been discussing the theme of First John , which is the threefold test of eternal life, based on three simple theological propositions. Firstly, because God is Light and in Him there is no darkness at all, those who share in the gift of the life of God, hate evil and sin. Eternal Life is opposed to all that is false and evil, unceasingly exposing and repudiating it . Those who have eternal...

    The shift in American society from admiring Christians to fearing and criticizing them provides an opportunity for self-reflection. How have we been presenting the message we believe in? Might there be a more grace-filled way?Some want to focus on personal morality and leave public morality to secular politicians. Others seek ways to guide the broader culture while still communicating grace. Rather than propose a single path, I will instead make some observations and suggestions for Christians to consider as we interact with a world that does not always share our views.Clashes Between Christ and Culture Are UnavoidableJohn Howard Yoder recounted...

For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.( I John 5:2-3)The Apostle John wrote an epistle to restore the faith of those who had been ravaged by the distorted spirituality of the gnostics. As part of the cure, he declared three statements about the nature of the only true God; God is Light, and in Him is no darkness at all, God is Love, and finally, Jesus Christ has come (and...

    It’s called “falling in love with your source.” I did it, my colleagues did it, intelligence professionals collectively do it, and none of us are ever the better for it. Here’s how it happens, at least from the collector level. I spent 20 years in the U.S. Army as an interrogator and strategic debriefer, with most of my second decade of service spent in and around embassies in the Middle East. My job at the embassy was to debrief walk-in sources, defectors, visa applicants of particular interest who agreed to talk to me, and anyone else of interest to the...
