Thanks a lot +Google+​. I really liked my circles and the ability to change what streams I wanted to see. You changed it on me without permission. It's not an improvement.

The animal has a shell made of overlapping plates, allowing it to roll up in defense if a predator pries it from the tidal-zone rock it calls home.

I see The Gray Havens are the opening act. I guess I'll have to make plans for tomorrow evening.

"Easy for me to say, sure, but...

The older I get, and the more fecundaphobia I see, the more I believe this to be a true and necessary message.

Your influence on the world will die with you.  However the lessons you teach your children and the work that you do with them will live on well past your days.  I'm not talking about some lame extension of your ego, but I mean the lasting benefit you can provide for others by passing on good values.

It is true that some people have and raise children with no thought as to how they might make the world better, but the answer is not to avoid bringing more people into the world, but producing better people."

I sought the Lord, and afterward I knew
He moved my soul to seek Him, seeking me.
It was not I that found, O Savior true;
No, I was found of Thee.

Thou didst reach forth Thy hand and mine enfold;
I walked and sank not on the storm vexed sea.
'Twas not so much that I on Thee took hold,
As Thou, dear Lord, on me.

I find, I walk, I love, but oh, the whole
Of love is but my answer, Lord, to Thee!
For Thou were long beforehand with my soul,
Always Thou lovest me.

Thou lovest me, Thou
lovest me, Always Thou lovest me.

In this is love, not that we have loved God but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.

John 6:63
It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing; the words that I have spoken to you are spirit and are life.

John 6:65
“For this reason I have said to you, that no one can come to Me unless it has been granted him from the Father.”

Real reporting on "planned parenthood".
Planned Parenthood fails to convince anyone its web site was attacked, the resurrection of the mammogram falsehood, and mysterious media omissions.

The sheer fact that our society has chosen to ignore the atrocity of abortion is disturbing...and the videos only illuminate the complete disregard we have for human life. This is the same crime against human rights that the Nazis, Communist China/Russia and Imperialist Japanese committed and their societies ignored and accepted.

Also wanted to share this.  I have really been enjoying this music because the lyrics are more Biblical, substantial, thorough, and challenging than many CCW bands out there.  We turn on the local CCW radio station and listen for about a song and a half before giving up.  But this is not about that...  


Completely just and holy God 
Who from age to age forbeared
All the blatant acts of evil hearts
Unrelenting in despair
While promising a Son would come
The Messiah from of old
And his bruised heel would crush the head
Of the serpent, cursed and cold

Our Perfect Priest and Sacrifice 
For God's holy wrath toward sin
When the blood of bulls could not suffice
Christ absorbed it all in him 
And the righteous freely gave his life 
He was buried in the earth
But our God has raised him from the dead
He will have the final word

The Spirit comes to testify
Of truth that we have heard
The wisdom of a sovereign God
That the foolish deem absurd
Convict us and convince our hearts 
Astonish us with grace
The world is dead and dying fast
And we need to see Your face

Father, Son, and Holy Ghost
You’re the blessed three in One
Come and rid our hearts of lesser boasts
Than the victory you’ve won
We throw ourselves upon your grace
You complete all you begin
Loose our feeble lips to sing your praise
Keep our wandering feet from sin

Today listen if you hear his voice
Don't harden your heart, or blind your eyes
Hear and believe, he has made his choice
He’s chosen you and he does not change his mind

This is from a recent album by Stephen Miller, a worship pastor now serving a church in Austin.  If your taste runs more to modern styles than mine does, I really recommend you check out his work for the care he puts into his lyrics.

follower of Jesus Christ
For our sake He made Him to be sin 
Who knew no sin, so that in Him 
we might become the righteousness of God.

When you are ready to give up, 
call on the name of Jesus. 
He's faithful and merciful.

Notes On Meeting New Friends:

Unrelated to this, I am interested in learning more about those folks who have circled me that I haven't circled back.  My apologies for taking so long.

Here's what I am thinking - I'll be looking at your recent posts.  I am really interested in meeting people who are sharing a little bit of their personal lives and with whom I share common interests.  I am not looking for more links to read.  The internet will always be there, waiting, growing, thrashing in its display of bored humanity.  I am looking for people on the same path who are sharing some of what they are learning about life, both the questions and the answers.  On the other hand, some of us share way too much, way too fast.

Just toured it, didn't end up renting because the rep made me feel as if my stuff would not be protected unless I bought their padlock. For pushing a $15 padlock on me they didn't get a customer. Maybe that's just the way it goes anymore with corporate control but you'd think the bottom line would be imperative. They have a good competitor right across Lake Street.
