SORT BY Relevancy
a Story by: Meg Rosoff
About a decade ago, a friend I knew and cared about deeply told me that she was having an affair with her child's best friend's father. "My God," I said, swallowing hard. "That's complicated."
It was complicated all right. The families lived practically next door and were in and out of each other's houses all the time. But neither marriage was good. And my friend swore that this was the real thing.
The problem was her daughter. She worshipped her mum, watched her like a hawk. And though she was only six, she was one of those strange, precocious children who gets inside adult heads and roams around, looking for stuff. Like the fact that her mother was madly in love with someone other than her dad.
"You can't keep lying to her," I said.
"No, no," she assured me. "It's not a problem. She doesn't suspect a thing."
I looked at her. "She knows. She doesn't know what she knows, but she knows."
And she did. If ever a child knew something was wrong with her family, it was Evie. She had developed a heartbreaking look of puzzlement in the company of her mother, searching her face for answers.
I notice those children now, the ones people lie to. Like all children, they are studying the world, struggling to learn the rules of engagement. Except that, for them, life doesn't make sense because their instincts are negated. So they begin to twist in an attempt to accommodate a world full of half-truths.
An American woman visiting friends in London a few days after the school massacre in December 2012 in Newtown, Connecticut, asked the friend's family (two adults, three teenagers) not to refer to Newtown for the duration of their visit and not to turn on the news in case her children might overhear distressing stories.
We invite you to join us in our study of Christian History the 1st 2000 years. We will begin our studies during the the time called the inter-testamental period (time between Old & New Testament) and we will follow Christianity all the way to our present day. Will you join us a we take a look back at that small band of 12 men from Galilee who followed a man from Galilee born of a virgin named Mary from Galilee whom the whole world knows today as Jesus Christ Savior of the world? Just how did this fledgling religion of 120 become today's most dominate religion in the world? Those are the question's that we will do our best to answer for the entire body of Jesus Christ. So we invite you to join us as we watch the Lord Jesus Christ march through time right up to our very present today.
Good moring, good morning, GOOD morning!!! My dear, sweet hawks, when I tell ya, that I need some coffee plus whatever else they have for waking folks up in the morning, yeah, some smelling salt, that's it, yep, that's what I need. I don't know if it's the weather, or what, but I feel so drained, and I'm pretty sure, it just may have something to do with today's topic, PATIENCE. Yes, today's topic is, PATIENCE, and Good Lord, Almighty, needs to grant me some extra doses or come hither with my break-thru. But anywho, it's all good, cause just when you think you can't wait any longer, guess what, you still gotta wait on it. So PATIENCE is something that many of us are forced to practice, and that includes, and especially includes, the Hawkie. At any rate, I'm really looking forward to my freestyle this morning, and I know, ain't no telling what's gonna come out, cause this topic is one, that I know needs to be stressed. And as always, if you'd like to help me, pump up the volume on my energy level, please don't hesitate to drop a love offering in my collection plate over at http://www.paypal.com, using the email address, email@example.com. Also, don't you dare hesitate to drop me an email, if you have an issue that you would like me to discuss with you, as well. After all, I am also a life coach/adviser.

#faith is something you want to keep on moving forward not just keep on the shelf
Step 4is critical it's a must you do the right thing in life today
Faith comes with a fight it's not easy but it's necessary to your growth in life and in ministry
Faith is something U have to keep on fighting and never stop
Faith has to be built piece by piece not all at once
It's like fighting a giant you don't know you can win until you get though the fight

Only those who pray are placed on the front lines of the fearful contest between GOD and satan, between the forces of light and darkness, between heaven and hell. Only praying leaders that are to be counted on in this dreadful conflict. It is the prayers of all the saints that are a continous force against all the powers of darkness. E. M. Bounds, "Prayer is asking GOD for something, and for something which HE has promised. Prayer is using the DIVINELY appointed means for obtaining what we need and for accomplishing what GOD has proposes to do on earth. The entire range of GOD'S dealings with man are affected by prayer. Let us pray! Join us for live prayer ay 6:00 AM today. Dial 714 459-3963.
Before the modern day reign of the Saudi Royal family which declared its throne in 1932, a young prince at age 20 wanted to eliminate the Ottoman empire and restore rule of Al Saud who once dominated the region from the Red Sea to the Persian Gulf. He didn’t second guess his rightful birthright in the area. His name was Abd al-Azia ibn Saud. He crossed the desert with sixty brothers and cousins to reclaim the land. He enlisted nomadic Bedouins, local warriors named the Ikhwan who also wanted their own version of a puritan Wahhabi Islamic state. After the victory in 1902, Abd al-Aziz ibn Saud wanted to kill 1/3 of the army that helped him win, the Ikhwan. He consulted the religious elite, the ulama, and got approval. He killed the coalition that enabled him to win. Since 1932, there has been no royal monarchy but the House of Saud and each subsequent ruler was a brother. A few turns of betrayal or alliance have tipped the kingdom momentarily but only cost one real life 80 plus years. Dirty deals with the U.S. have kept them in an interfacing East-West loyalty that may switch up generation to generation.
