    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...

    By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments. 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...

    First Lady Melania Trump returned to the public eye on Wednesday, shutting down many of the conspiracy theories hyped about her private life at the White House after undergoing kidney surgery. “She went through a little rough patch but she’s doing great,” Trump said. “The people love you. The people of our country love you. So thank you, honey.” The First Lady traveled with President Trump for a follow-up briefing at FEMA headquarters on the ongoing hurricane response. She did not speak at the event but appeared to be her normal self. The First Lady also joined the president for...

    PARADISE VALLEY, Arizona -- Can you imagine getting 65,000 text messages after just one date? An Arizona woman is accused of doing just that. And it didn't end there.

According to investigators, she had met the man online about a year prior, but she wouldn't leave him alone. Court documents say Ades sent the victim about 500 messages a day, which included disturbing ones like, "I want to wear your body parts" and "bathe in your blood." Officers say they found a butcher knife in...

    Many of us have hidden fears and hesitations when it comes to dealing with persons with severe disabilities. Their unfamiliar gestures, behaviors, and limitations can challenge us and infringe on our comfort zones. We may be tempted to apply a different standard when we deal with them. Even very young children with disabilities may suffer discrimination through denial of care as newborns, or through abortion in utero. During his presidential campaign, former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum and his wife Karen were often asked by people on the campaign trail about their daughter Bella, who was born with Trisomy 18, a...

    Jordan Peterson is currently engaged in a study of tradition and culture. He is clear that we know very little of the world about us. That knowledge comes, he believes, through the kind of enlightenment exemplified by Jesus and to a lesser extent Buddha. The religious community is clear about the vital significance of tradition and historically derived knowledge. The founding principle upon which all knowledge is built according to the aforementioned luminaries is universal love. This is the authority that will bring down the demonic pantheons that rule our world. Love is a cleansing power. It grinds evil into...

    We live in a country where liberals are constantly working to get rid of things that were once sacred to America. They've taken God out of our public schools. They've politicized and disrespected our national anthem. Now, exploiting a tragic school shooting in Florida, they're aiming to get rid of our guns. Liberals think turning America into a gun-free zone will make our schools safe and stop sick young men from going on bloody killing sprees like the one in Parkland. The clamor for stricter gun control by the mainstream media and leading Democrats like Pelosi and Schumer is as...

Archpriest Vladimir Tukalo, a father of five children, discusses exactly how to speak about these things with your child. How do you suggest we approach our children? Sit across from them and start with the words: "Son (daughter), let's talk?” Or from time to time answer some questions as they arise? There is a formula for...

    On February 14 around the year 278 A.D., Valentine, a holy priest in Rome in the days of Emperor Claudius II, was executed. Under the rule of Claudius the Cruel, Rome was involved in many unpopular and bloody campaigns. The emperor had to maintain a strong army, but was having a difficult time getting soldiers to join his military leagues. Claudius believed that Roman men were unwilling to join the army because of their strong attachment to their wives and families. To get rid of the problem, Claudius banned all marriages and engagements in Rome. Valentine, realizing the injustice of...
