An image for the forum Today we were cruising the galaxy, right before the captain came down with space sickness and gave away a premium upgrade, and we came upon the star

There was a lovely planet circling the star:

~~Image #1935586 Sharing Restricted~~

On that planet one of the landing crew found "A piece of melody blends gently with the night,
carrying something, I didn't recognize."

Have you ever had an experience like this? Tell us about it.

I've had a few nights like that. I awaken to find myself confronted by something I did not recognize. One night I woke up to find a woman standing over my bed. She was trying to steal my computer. At the time I was not a Christian so I propositioned her. I told her that I was going to pretend I knew her and that she could deal with the police or deal with me. She said "Call the police."

No. I actually chased her out of my house with her carrying my computer. I tackled her in the yard just as a police officer came around the corner. He started to arrest me for assault but I told him to turn the computer on. My picture was on the computer so he took her to jail. She went to prison for attempted burglary.

Two of your links don't work! However I've always wanted to see the outback. I hear tales about it and I imagine it is one of the most famous places in Australia if not the most famous.

This image made by Sharmelle's Expressions. I have not answers today. I was hoping maybe somebody else could give me some insight. I live at the West Virginia Veterans Home where I also serve as chaplain. I watch these guys as they stand around in the hallways professing to know Jesus and doing the right things to turn around a few minutes later and come across a blue streak of profanity. Or they will do all the right things but absolutely refuse to go to chapel services. I don't understand it.

Blog City image small "Prompt: What was the last thing you ordered off the internet?"

The last thing I ordered off the Internet was a set of universal chargers for Ipad, Android, tablet, and Kindle. It was a gift for a friend. I order a lot of stuff online, including GrubHub.

A big thank you to Flights of Fantasy Image Shoppe for the moving images! Today crusing through the galaxy, on the last watch, the captain found a shining star.

The planet is:
It’s just indifferent I’d say.  (E)
When words are left unspoken because you fear the outcome of a situation.
#2228483 by Scarlett Moon

where the author asks "What if these words could change everything right away?"

What do you think? Can words change everything right away?

I think words have a lot of power. They have the power to build and the power to destroy. They have the power to fly and to swim. They have the power to walk and to run. They have to power to heal and the power to kill. They have tremendous power. I try to choose my words carefully and if I have nothing good to say I would prefer to say nothing. Words have tremendous power.

Created by the talented  [Link To User poulynoe] Prompt: "The Lord appeared to us in the past saying:

I have loved you with an everlasting love,
I have drawn you with unfailing kindness." Jer. 31:3

How is this true for you today?"

It is true for me because I am still above the dirt. I look back on my life each day and realize the accidents that I have been in and walked away from when in fact they should have killed me. I consider all the illnesses that I have had, including a 90% blockage of the left aorta AKA "the widowmaker" and walked away. I consider the overdoses I have taken of alcohol and drugs and walked away. I've had my kidney on the verge of rupturing and doctors scratching their heads wondering why I wasn't dead. I walked away. God has blessed me tremendously. Now I am a seminary student making good grades. He continues to bless me.

{image:image:2003087-20.5%} 30 day prompt.
From your morning stop at the outback outpost of Manguri, you’ll venture into the weird and wonderful opal mining township of Coober Pedy, where more than half of the residents live underground. Here, you’ll enjoy a day of discovery, and a gourmet lunch in the most unique of locations: underground. Dinner is served back on the train where you can enjoy a nightcap as your journey continues.

We'e going to get dirty today. But maybe we'll score an opal.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wrCpNlPggtA

Let your imagination take you wherever.

Even though I am traveling the Outback of Australia my mind is still firmly here at home. I love my jobs and dedicate a lot of my time to them. Regardless where I roam my mind is on work and school.

Opal mining, on the other hand, could take my mind completely off of those things. There be money in opals and I like money. In fact, I just bought a jewel of sorts last night. I bought a guitar off of a friend. He has a ukulele that I am also going to try to buy. Then my project will be learning to play them. I want to play them for chapel. My goals are simple. I want to keep them that way.

Blog City image small "Prompt: Different people keep the world moving. Use this in your Blog entry today."

I don't know that I totally agree with that. I believe different people can change the world but I don't believe they keep it moving. I believe one Person keeps the world moving and that is Jesus Christ.

Then we'll all eat a nice steak at the Pinkhouse by the oodnadatta track.

Blog City image small "Prompt: What kinds of things such as likes, dislikes, behavior, vocations, avocations, and/or personality traits do you appreciate in other people the most?"

I am now officially what I have wanted to be for a huge part of my life. I am now a mental health therapist by license and by trade. As such I would say there is no personality that I don't find fascinating. After all, personalities are what I work with. I find them all fascinating. I figure out what makes people behave the way they do. Usually, I find it is the past which strongly influences the present. We react the way we do because it is a learned behavior. Anything we learned we can unlearn.

says "It's raining today. Better for the garden, it's been very dry lately. I love the sound of rain, on the rooftop, on the window, on the tiles in the street. It's soothing and comforting."

Write about a rainy afternoon. What do you like to do with rainy days?

On rainy afternoons I like to nap like anybody else. If it isn't flashing lightning I will go out and sit in the patio. The patio has rocking chairs and a metal roof. So on a rainy day, it's a great place to sit and meditate. Of course, I am busy a lot of rainy days. I now have licenses to do therapy with three mental health organizations and I am a master's degree student at Regent University. I spend a lot of my time doing research for papers and reports. I've become quite adept at Turabian format and know how to do the research now. It took a while to learn it but I've gotten all As so far this term. I got an A-minus in two of my classes and I have a solid A in the third right now. I only have two more major assignments to get back but I am confident they will both be A work as well. So rainy day or otherwise, I work usually. My classmates all are gunning for me. I usually get my work turned in early and the professor usually gives me extra credit. However many points I get in extra credit set the grading curve. I have a target on my back so I have to keep moving. No time to stop and listen to the rain!

Created by Sharmelle's Expressions Prompt: "But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you everything, and remind you of all that I have said to you..."

How is Holy Spirit our Advocate?"

This question may seem a little tough but part of the reason for this forum is Bible study. I asked in the prompt how Holy Spirit is our advocate. Does Hebrews not say that Jesus is our High Priest (Advocate). How then does Holy Spirit serve that same function?
A few of the verses which show that Holy Spirit does serve in this capacity are :

“There is one God and one mediator between God and man, the man Christ Jesus.” I Tim. 2:5
“Who also maketh intercession for us׳ “Romans 8:34
“We have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ.” I John 2:1

Holy Spirit lives in the believer's heart. Spurr says that many of us pray and use the words “In Jesus’s name” without stopping to think of the power and reality behind doing so. Spurr says this is unwise of us because we should never use ancient words without knowing their meaning. {3) In Jesus’s name activates the power of Holy Spirit so that Holy Spirit advocates or acts in our behalf. There is much, much power in Jesus’s name because of it activating Holy Spirit who is the power of God. This same power created and sustains the universe. All the other power in the universe combined is not stronger than this power source because they all come from this source. They depend on Holy Spirit for existence. When I say Holy Spirit is our advocate I mean that we have the power of God at our disposal. He serves us and helps us. He is our advocate. Spurr says we should never take this power for granted or discuss it glibly. {4} Spurr says “Not until these loose ideas are dissolved and replaced by some of the sternness which attaches to the idea of holiness and law, will there emerge a doctrine of the Divine Fatherhood worthy to be held.”
We must be more respectful and in awe of our Advocate. He weilds great power and when we invoke Jesus’s name we invoke that power.

Clouds On My Horizon  (E)
A painful time in my life caused great pain and despair
#2222967 by Jeannie🍷



I look out and see the sunshine chase the clouds away. I no longer want to hide in the dark but survive.
Use this line in your Blog entry today.

This is a very healthy attitude to have. Hiding in the dark doesn't do a thing for us but make us more depressed than we already are. Facing reality with a will to live gives us a little hope and it gives us a future.

Image #2225669 over display limit. -?- Prompt: Is it alright to ask God, "Why have you forgotten me?"

I think we all have times when we feel forgotten. And yes, it is alright to ask God why He has forgotten us. The problem is that if God has forgotten us it is due to sin and God does not sin. We do. We must confess our sins. There is also another possibility. God may be testing our faith. After all, faith is the evidence of things not seen. God knows our faith. He wants us to know our faith.

s. I'll bet it is really rough staying at the Hilton. It has to be rough to be waited on hand and foot. I enjoy work so I don't want to be waited on. Well, I enjoy brain work or work involving people. That's why I am a therapist I guess.

I can't even wrap my head around that idea today. I do know that I've had drug-induced hallucinations in the past in which I saw things with my fingers or skin and heard with my nose. It was quite disturbing.

I never really dreamed of going to the poles because it is entirely too cold. I have dreamed of owning a house on Lake Tahoe. I got that dream from watching the old tv show "Airwolf".

A poem about the time between bedtime and sleep
#2090474 by Schnujo
The prompt is "What do you do about insomnia?

The answer is that I do what I did this morning. I sleep in if possible. We had a three AM fire drill here last night because some moron was smoking in bed at 3:00AM and set there blanket smoldering I was up for one hour waiting for the fire department to give us the all-clear. It's time to throw a GI blanket party. (lol)

I changed the hose and mask today. Here is today's prompt. I'm also looking for volunteers to send out prompts once in a while.

How will taking delight in God change the desires of our heart?

It will keep me from killing the idiot who was smoking in bed last night, set their bed on fire, and caused the alarms to go off at 3:00AM. I'm still exhausted.

It means that Christians will inherit eternal spiritual life. In our spiritual bodies, we will be with God.

I've been nauseous all morning from allergies and hay fever.

Read the above item.

Even though I'm not full Irish, I believe in the myths in a major way.

I have to disagree on this one. I don't believe in leprechauns or luck. I'm a Christian. My faith does not allow me to believe in myths such as leprechauns or other pagan imagery. I do believe that others believe in them.

 Muse Got Lost  (E)
I lost my muse.
#2146936 by Rhoswen - Goal Reacher
"This is a lovely planet that we writer's can relate to. She says "Total mind-blank is here to stay.
I wish my muse would return;
Oh, I want to write something…"

How about you? Do you want to write something? If so, have at it."

I love acrostic poetry and acrostic poetry that moves my heart is even better. Rhoswen - Goal Reacher has written an acrostic about the struggles of writer's block. This is a problem I deal with all the time. I go through extended periods in which I write nothing. I write my blog during those times but nothing requiring a lot of imagination. I understand what the author here is going through and empathize on a deep level. I know she has struggled with a lot over the past several years and am proud to know her as a person.

Image #2227277 over display limit. -?- Prompt: "Which Bible version do you use? Are you a "strictly KJV believers or do you think all versions are alright?"

I believe there are some translation errors in any version of the Bible except the original Hebrew/Greek/Aramaic Bible. I know some KJV users think it is blasphemy to say such a thing about the KJV, but it too is a translation. It is also not the first English translation and it depends a lot on former English translations. I want to learn to fluently read Hebrew and Greek but I doubt that will happen in this lifetime. In eternity though I will be an expert.

Your treasure--your perfection--is within you already. But to claim it, you must leave the buy commotion of the mind and abandon the desires of the ego and enter into the silence of the heart.”― Elizabeth Gilbert

What are your thoughts?"

I think I agree that happiness is an inside job. The insides must be holy though. They must be surrendered to Jesus Christ who then gives contentment. We may not be happy but through faith we have serenity.

I don't know if our nation will ever settle down unless it grows a backbone. We have let our young people go undisciplined all of their lives because you are not allowed to punish any more. We have not taught them good values because prayer and the pledge of allegiance were taken out of schools. We brought these problems on ourselves. Personally I think KKK and BLM should both be declared terrorist organizations.

There was a time when I was sorely tempted to shake my fist at God and say "Why?"

Now I understand that success is not how much you have, it is what you do with what you do have. It is a spiritual thing. I can be poor and much more contented than most rich people.

I hope this video works. It shows my point:

Let this quote inspire you blog entry."

Churchill was a good leader. Without his leadership the world may well be a different place today. I agree with his judgment on this one too.

What do you think makes people punish themselves, knowingly or unknowingly? Is it always out of guilt feelings?"

Guilt plays a role. I believe however that some people like being punished even if they won't admit it.

I have been working full tilt on a final paper today for my Biblical Hermeneutics class. I just finished it. Now I am completely done for the semester. I'm running a little late on my blog today.

Read the above item.

They are giving us blessings even though humans in the world cannot see the angels, we are happy for all of our blessings.

Use the above line in your Blog entry today."

I definitely believe in angels. In fact, I don't know if it was sleep paralysis like somebody reported, or if I was having a vision, but I awoke the other night with an angel and a demon struggling over me. I had dreamed that I had died of a stroke and the angel was telling the demon that the demon could not touch me. After the angel struggled with the demon for just a moment I woke completely up. I prayed, thanking God for allowing the angel to care for me. I will always pray and say thank you in advance when I go to sleep and thank you when I awake because I know an angel watches over me when I sleep.

I gave up a house to pursue a career I thought God was calling me into. I was wrong. God did not call me to the job I thought He had called me to, but pursuing it led me to the Veterans Home. Within two months of moving to the Veterans Home I was a soldier in the Salvation Army and a local commissioned Officer of the same. I was also enrolled at Marshall University finishing up my RBA. I just found out today that I may only need one more class to have a second bachelor's degree and I am working toward my M. Div. at Regent University. God had plans in moving me to give up the house!

I would have to agree. I believe the heart is the most sacred place we humans have, especially for those of us who believe. The heart after all is the throne of God.

I want to say "Yes, the cross", but I won't. I try not to venerate anything but Jesus.
