I unfollow but don't unfriend anyone who's overly political on Facebook, whether that person leans left or right. I only left a single comment on the local news site about it when the matter was raised there, and left it at that.

That's the exact reason I only see the posts of maybe half my total FB friends. I got tired of hearing their constant raging, left or right.

In the past year I've gotten rid of many of my frustrations by unfollowing news sites and friends I really don't talk to anymore. It is okay to move on from people, especially if they do not share your faith.

Same with me. Mental health-wise, taking the "End Times will happen when they happen" approach is greatly helping, no matter how many Philadelphia cream cheese bagels I try to bribe the angels with (Mark 13:32-37, Matt. 24:36-51)! :p

Philadelphia Cream Cheese commercial involving angels.
Why would commercials lie to me like this? :p

@Vinter I think you're ready for this. :)

Live your life like a Studio Ghibli movie...


You have to start romanticizing your life. You have to start thinking of yourself as the main character. Because if you don’t, life will continue to pass you by. And all the little things that make it so beautiful, will continue to go unnoticed. So take a second, and look around, and realize that it’s a blessing for you to be here right now.

Am I living the life I imagined or has it escaped me? If so, how do I get it back?

It really sounds as though you are not having a good night at all tonight, Riley. :( Still praying for you, that God will give you solace from everything that may be tormenting you right now.
thank you

Thank you everyone for your advice. I appreciate it. I need to stay away from social media for the time being for the sake of my mental health. Right now it's pretty toxic. Lord, have mercy

I always thought the sound made by a train after "chugga chugga" was "choo choo", but I saw a FB meme a couple of weeks ago thinking it was "woo woo", and a former coworker of mine claims it's "rhoo rhoo". :waaah:

I saw this in my email and thought I'd share. :)

We are made in God’s image, and he is the ultimate creator, we are called to create my friend. What are some positive things we can focus on creating in the month of July? How about we put our:

Creator OVER current events
Creativity OVER consuming
Compliments OVER complaining

We are constantly creating by the choices we make every day. Let’s focus on creating better choices. FOCUS on God and all his beautiful creations. Get out in nature, take care of the body he has given you, live in His Word. What are you creating these days friend? What could you be creating more of?


Creating to me is more than just “art”......creating is adding value, cultivating healthy habits, deepening relationships, contributing to order and peace in my home.

Captivated = Focused, what will you be focused on in the month of July?

@linux.poet & @Saucy

Reference the passage where Jesus calms the storm. Be still in the Greek means be muzzled. It was warfare meant to hinder what followed — the Gadarene demoniac.

And here’s a word for you both I heard a few moments ago (in reference to the above).

Sometimes when we’re on a particular assignment that means a great deal to the kingdom of God. Satan will have his agents planted in every situation and circumstance along the way. This is a good sign God is going to do something special if we do not become discouraged and lose the victory on the way. God can silence anything if we have faith.
