I believe we are all Souls/Spiritual energy, created by God in his image, having a human experience, possibly to correct past errors in judgment. A lot of people have that mixed up and think it's the other way around...
When we were created and entered this earth we were put here to meet our loved ones, our friends, our eternal family, to find the most important one, to start life all over again with different experiences, to correct past experiences, build new ones, same soul different being? As the shell was being formed we received the expression of God’s intent and vision for our new life, sight and hearing, thought and speech, intelligence and emotions, will and desire, personality and identity. We received a soul. Without the soul, we are a computer without software. Can we overcome our past experiences, do we dare take chances, a different path, that leads to rewards which can help with a better life or (the soon-to-be tomorrow?)
The beauty of a man or woman is not in their facial features but reflected in their soul. It is the caring that they lovingly give and the passion they show. They are an evolved soul. Steps ahead of the narcissistic lying psychopaths, who can be very charming, but who, in the end have all the depth of a gnat. The beauty of the evolved soul grows with the passing years. It's wonderful and beautiful if/when you find someone that is in love with your mind. Someone that wants to undress your conscience and make love to your thoughts. Someone that wants to watch you slowly take down all the walls you've built up around your mind and let them inside. It's not about the shell. It's about being a friend. "A friend is a person with whom I may be sincere. Before him I may think aloud..." Emerson
SOMETIMES I THINKS... I'm Breathing... I'm Alive... I'm Blessed... God Is Good! I've come to realize that the only people I need in my life are the ones who need me in theirs even when I have nothing else to offer but myself and friendship... SOMETIMES I THINKS... It feels better not to talk. At all. About anything. To anyone. SOMETIMES I change my mind... SOMETIMES I THINKS it's fine... ♫♪Music♪♫ ٩(˘◡˘)۶ “Without Music life would be a mistake.” ¸ ¸. ✶ * ♪ ♫ . ¸ ¸. ✶ * ♪ ♫ . ¸ ¸. ✶ * ♪ ♫ . ¸ ¸. ✶ *

I am a Christian First and Foremost... A Mackerel Snapper... ٩(˘◡˘)۶ A Roman Catholic and aware of all the flaws. The basics of dogma and the churches many flaws have been worked out with my daily talks betwixt God and Me. Have very,very, serious doubts about Pope Francis... Psalm 25: “Take not away my soul, O God, with the wicked: nor my life with blood thirsty men. In whose hands are iniquities, their right hand is filled with gifts.” I truly miss Pope Benedict XVI and pray for his return.
The older I get, the smarter I get, sorta, kinda. Looking at history it seems that since at least the 20th century all global struggles are really about a belief in God, Judeo-Christianity, it's value system, teaching, and just about everything else. The opening of the United States Declaration of Independence states as follows: We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed;... The United States of America is the only country in history to have defined itself as Judeo-Christian. The west's value system comes from Judeo-Christianity, with communism/socialism/liberalism/obamism being the removal of it. I still remember when Democrat's booed God, It was a shock and an eyeopener... The middle east wants to spread Islamic values. Islam is a warrior religion of aggression and cruelty all done in the name of Islam. Massive destruction of Christians and non-believers is it’s true nature… War is expected from political entities not from a religion. Almost every major African conflict has a tie to Islam or Christianity. Spreading capitalism or westernizing countries are simply making them adopt Judeo-Christian concepts. Which I totally agree with..
DID YOU KNOW... 1st Bible printed in English in America was in 1782 by the approval of U.S. Congress for use in our public schools!
DID YOU KNOW... In 1857 the U.S. Capitol Building was the largest church in the United States with over 2000 people attending per week!
DID YOU KNOW...America's Founders never placed the words 'separation of church and state' in any of our official Founding documents!
Immorality is un-American, and a threat to National Security. All the Islamic Muslim Terrorists, all the Communists, all the Joseph Stalins, all the Adolf Hitlers, all the BathHouseBattyBarackINSANEObamas, rolled into one isn't nearly the threat to National Security as immorality is, Abortion is on the top of the list. ABORTION IS EVIL and doesn't make you un-pregnant. Your choice of abortion makes you the Mother who killed her child. That leaves The Father, Sister, Brother, Grandparent, Aunt, Uncle, Cousin...of a Dead Baby. The big problem is and has been the indoctrination of our young with thought presenting the government's version of reality they wish them to see in school, then encouraging them to be and accept their evil. The indoctrination of Me! Me! Me! I Want! Want! Want! Unfortunately after participating in evil they realize exactly what they have done, they suffer the guilt and horror of their actions for the rest of their lives. The whole family suffers... Now you have to live with the fact that your child has probably been painfully murdered, tortured and chopped up Dr.Mengele style and sold for body parts by Planned Parenthood.
Topics I like. Love, and Ideas for the intellectually inclined: Art, Sculpture, Photography, Religion, God The Father, Son And Holy Spirit... Physics, Science, The Theory Of Everything, Politics, Genealogy, Grandchildren, Gardening, are just the tip of the iceberg. Love, Love, Love Music, Painting, Sculpture, Reading, old movies, computer, sewing and crochet. I would like to make and read everything before I die.
My Country Tis Of Thee... I can't really slap a label across my head but... I guess you could call me very, very, very Conservative and now very disenchanted about having to vote Republican. I'm more of a leave-me-the-hell-alone-ist! I belonged to the Libertarian Party at one time, but they were and are too Liberal. I would never ever vote for Communism or a Nazicrat. I think I still have very, very, minor Libertarian leanings. I like Ted Cruz. Christians and Jews had better unite and vote against those who promote [Libidiots & DemoRAT's] Islamic/Muslim Brotherhood Terrorists. Trey Goudy would be a perfect Supreme Court Justice, so would Thomas Sowell. I am a purest when it comes to the Constitution. Definitely not a "living document." It is "the law" that America was founded on! A Nation established for "We The People", under God, with liberty and justice for all. Most of our law is based on the Ten Commandments, God's law. The law for mankind. Something to think about changing...
"We are fast approaching the stage of the ultimate inversion: the stage where the government is free to do anything it pleases, while the citizens may act only by permission; which is the stage of the darkest periods of human history, the stage of rule by brute force." ~ Ayn Rand
Things That Aren't Really That Important But Will Say Them Anyhow: Unless you circle me and/or I circle you back, you don't get to see any photo's or +1's Also Important: Fuggedaboutit! I do not do Hangouts or Video Chats with Anyone EVAH!!!!
Outside of my family and a few friends I am an introvert. I would, have been, and could be a complete loner. I believe in the power of prayer. Cantankerous. Persnickety. Lovable. Kind. Enjoy company sometimes. Not looking for anything from anyone, but, If you have depth, emotion, a strong mind, an interesting mind, a touch of odd [I call it Soulshine or Intelligence], can make me think and smile… I will follow you back…. If I discover you are dishonest, untrustworthy, a liar, or playing me, I will block you in a heartbeat, no matter how much I care for you ٩(˘◡˘)۶ If I really care about you don't worry I will probably unblock you after I calm down unless you are a narcissistic psychopath ツ ツ
My Favorite Quotes:
“Adore God. Reverence and cherish your parents. Love your neighbor as yourself, and your country more than yourself. Be just. Be true. Murmur not at the ways of Providence.” —Thomas Jefferson
"Once you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth.” - Arthur Conan Doyle
“My importance to the world is relatively small. On the other hand, my importance to myself is tremendous. I am all I have to work with, to play with, to suffer and to enjoy. It is not the eyes of others that I am wary of, but of my own. I do not intend to let myself down more than I can possibly help, and I find that the fewer illusions I have about myself or the world around me, the better company I am for myself.” ― Noël Coward
"We're born alone, we live alone, we die alone. Only through our love and friendship can we create the illusion for the moment that we are really not alone. ~Orson Welles
“A friend is a person with whom I may be sincere. Before him I may think aloud. I am arrived at last in the presence of a man so real and equal, that I may drop even those undermost garments of dissimulation, courtesy, and second thought, which men never put off, and may deal with him with the simplicity and wholeness with which one chemical atom meets another.” Ralph Waldo Emerson, Essays: First Series
"Having resentment is like taking poison and waiting for the other person to die" -- Malachy McCourt
"Forgive your enemies, but never forget their names." - John F. Kennedy
“There’s no way to rule innocent men. The only power government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What's there in that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced nor objectively interpreted and you create a nation of law-breakers -- and then you cash in on guilt. Now that’s the system.” —Ayn Rand
“Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” - John Adams
Hate Crimes are a horrific, Orwellian tool of the left that exist solely to punish people for thinking the wrong way. Declaring "thought" as a new crime against a privileged class of people based on their choice of behavior is just the beginning of what is to destroy America. ~Unknown
Man has always sacrificed truth to his vanity, comfort and advantage. He lives... by make-believe. ~W. Somerset Maugham, The Summing Up, 1938
We can ignore reality, but we cannot ignore the consequences of ignoring reality ~ Ayn Rand
Every truth passes through three stages before it is recognized. In the first, it is ridiculed, in the second it is opposed, in the third it is regarded as self-evident. ~Arthur Schopenhauer
“My experiences with science led me to God. To be forced to believe only one conclusion-that everything in the universe happened by chance, would violate the very objectivity of science, itself. Certainly there are those who argue that the universe evolved out of a random process, but what random process could produce the brain of a man, or the system of the human eye? Some people say science has been unable to prove the existence of God, but must we really light a candle to see the sun?” – Wernher Von Braun, Rocket Scientist 1912-1977.
Socialism will not help the poor. Rather it reduces everyone to the same lowest common denominator of poverty and misery, while at the same time drying up the very sources of capital. ~ Pope Leo XIII
“Prior to capitalism, the way people amassed great wealth was by looting, plundering and enslaving their fellow man. Capitalism made it possible to become wealthy by serving your fellow man.” ― Walter E. Williams
“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.” ― Marcus Tullius Cicero
"Of all tyrannies a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. They may be more likely to go to Heaven yet at the same time likelier to make a Hell of earth. This very kindness stings with intolerable insult. To be 'cured' against one's will and cured of states which we may not regard as disease is to be put on a level of those who have not yet reached the age of reason or those who never will; to be classed with infants, imbeciles, and domestic animals. But to be punished, however severely, because we have deserved it, because we 'ought to have known better,' is to be treated as a human person made in God's image." - C.S. Lewis
"There are 100 billion stars in the Milky Way galaxy, roughly the same as the number of neurons in our brain. You may have to travel twenty-four trillion miles, to the first star outside our solar system, to find an object as complex as what is sitting on your shoulders. The mind and the universe pose the greatest scientific challenge of all, but they also share a curious relationship. On one hand they are polar opposites. One is concerned with the vastness of outer space, where we encounter strange denizens like black holes, exploding stars, and colliding galaxies. The other is concerned with inner space, where we find our most intimate and private hopes and desires. The mind is no farther than our next thought, yet we are often clueless when asked to articulate and explain it." — Dr. Michio Kaku, THE FUTURE OF THE MIND: The Scientific Quest to Understand, Enhance, and Empower the Mind
“By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail” -Benjamin Franklin
"Life is hard; it's harder if you're stupid" -John Wayne
