November 29, 2021, 07:00:28 am truthjourney says: Chest pains. I guess I was wrong. People's words can upset me.

November 29, 2021, 06:54:51 am truthjourney says: I guess it's going to be one of those days.

November 29, 2021, 06:54:33 am truthjourney says: Good morning everyone.

November 28, 2021, 11:52:11 pm patrick jane says: Thank you Blade, wise words.

November 28, 2021, 07:48:27 pm Bladerunner says: Glad you had a great thanksgiving with the family Mark. It supersedes all the harsh words and feelings you experienced in those other forums.. Hang in there.

November 28, 2021, 07:36:07 pm Bladerunner says: good evening to all, Ihope all had a good thanksgiving with the family and friends...

TJ, Family members are always the most hurtful and are actually the least to realize what they have done. But they are family and as they grow older, they usually come around to a different set of rules to live by. A set of rules that includes GOD and Respect of Parents they knew not before.

November 28, 2021, 09:33:22 am truthjourney says: Yes, I know. You're right.

November 28, 2021, 09:25:21 am Lori Bolinger says: TJ, even our kids can be used by satan to inflict harm if they allow it to happen.

November 28, 2021, 07:35:21 am truthjourney says: The things my sons say to me do hurt me. But as far as other people, it annoys me more than anything else.

November 28, 2021, 07:20:58 am Lori Bolinger says: Mark, when satan cannot get us any other way, he will resort to using anyone he can to hurt us any way he can.  The comments were designed to hurt and I dare say they we designed specifically to hurt you.  But in light of John 15:18-25 what we need to remember is that the insults are actually His and we not only need to leave it in His hands but we need to cherish the beauty that they see enough Christ in us to attack us without cause.  May you find peace and comfort in the arms of the Living God.

November 28, 2021, 05:37:42 am truthjourney says: Good morning everyone.

November 28, 2021, 01:49:03 am truthjourney says: I know the feeling, Mark. But it's just words. People's words can't hurt you without your permission. And I don't give permission like that.

November 27, 2021, 08:51:50 pm Chaplain Mark Schmidt says: Well in the last few days I have been called unpatriotic, scrum, liar, and a few others I will not share all because when asked my opinion I shared it and it did not match the person that actually asked the question.  No on forums like this where you are not asked, you just reply, I fully expect hate, hostilities, and insults.  That is the norm anymore, the art of discussion goes away if passionate belief is involved.   That said, it has been my observation as we creep closer and closer to Christmas day, this time of the year,  people tend to get more defensive to their own beliefs and resort to anger and insults to those that disagree.  It seems that the whole purpose of the celebration of Christmas has been lost to hate, anger and commericalism.

November 25, 2021, 09:55:21 pm Chaplain Mark Schmidt says: A wonderful blessed day with family, food and conversations.  I hope all on here had a wonderful day.
