Wow, I love how the IDF troops are able to ignore it and just laugh about it. They all seem to have smiles on their faces in the face of children threatening them. Which as a soldier I think I would find amusing too. Nobodies gonna hit a kid, unless they present a true threat to our soldiers, so it usually is kind of comical to see stuff like that. Sick that the parents use their children like that though, especially the parents trying to push their son into the troops as he obviously isn't to keen on yelling at them.
I know it is partly dated, but found this interesting listening (November 6th's podcast) amongst other things, it's about something Christians need to add to their check list when going to vote- re: Christians being persecuted around the world:
Well, they said that if Obama won, he'd be inheriting a terrible mess from the previous President, and they were right!
This can not end well for those attempting to provoke a violent response;
since ultimately, there WILL be one.
Appalling mindset. Can't blame the children. They are impressionable and do what their elders tell them. No wonder they grow up to be terrorists.
I would insert myself into confrontation, but never my daughter. I would set up precautionary measures about where she's to go if I die, but never would I involve her.
Just came across a quote in an old thread which I gave to C_Hippie...thought I'd share it now with you.
"Take courage. We walk in the wilderness today and in the Promised Land tomorrow."
Hope you're doing Ok and sleeping with peace and sweet thoughts running through your sweet head. xoxoxo
I'm glad I could "see" you a bit today, eventhough short times make me miss you all the more. Be safe myGreenAngel.
I was amazed by FB the other night.I regret not being able to continue on.The hardest thing I've had to do in a long time was de-friend you.I guess that's what they call it. I regret not checking out some of the posts and pictures you had up.I felt like I was being a voyeur and peeking at your life. In some ways it seemed wrong,like I was being nosy and spying? Do you ever get that feeling when you look at other people's pages?
I didn't get it- I'm sorry- I was working on a facebook group for it. I just checked in on the off chance you were here. You sweetGreenBeret!!
One more article you need to add to the CFP is all Canadian Ducks get citizenship because they know and love America more than some Americans do.
For future reference if there are things you don't want to talk about here.
Good afternoon from home myGreenBeret. I hope you're resting, or sleeping with sweet and peaceful thoughts running through your precious head. I am in a better mood today my dear one, and I am so sorry about yesterday. It's been a rough couple of days and I didn't mean to let it out here now and with you where you are. Please forgive me for it.
I've got a lot of stuff to do this afternoon. I don't know if I sent you the link to this: http://constfreparty.blogspot.com/
I've been spamming it all over not just on Scoop (although here too and he's gonna get annoyed if I keep it up!) I've had a lot of positive feedback on it, but I need to find a way to keep getting it out there, and get a place where people can use it and act on it. Anyway, so I'm going to work this afternoon on making a Constutional Freedom Party facebook page, and also a you tube video (although that's going to require some extra stuff.)
Duckie is working over here to fight for freedom, while you have what you're doing which is more important. I love you.
PS- Met a Vet on my way out of wally world a bit ago. The look he gave me when I told him thank you and held out my hand, made me cry. He was sweet. Korean war.
I'll be back later my dear one. xoxoxox Duckie
Good morning mySweetGreenBeret. It's cold here this morning, well, if you think 61 is cold ;-) I don't know how I ever survived winters back home. I can't stand the cold, unless there's snow on the ground.
I hope all is well with you. I have to go to town this mornin, but I'll be back in a little while and leave you a note then. Love and prayers, sweet thoughts from duckie to you myGreenAngel. xoxoxox
There once was a duck who was loony
she had a self confidence which was mighty puny
her green hero wouldn't let her stay low
so the duck was happy again in the boonies.
Now that really was lame. Just want to make you smile. I've got to get to bed. Didn't sleep much more than 3 hours last night without tossing. You be safe mySweetGreenBeret. It was good to see you, and a treat as well. My prayers and heart are always with you. xoxoxox duckie.
Remember when a couple of weeks ago, I told you that God gives us seasons for a little while? I thought yours was a season to rest? I think I get seasons too.
Ecclesiastes 3:4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance.
But, another favorite Bible saying is, "and He shall bring it to pass."
It will pass. Please don't feel bad dear one. I'll be back to my usual self tomorrow.
I've just had to shoot another possum. Got him this time, I heard him yelp. ;-) But he still ran off. I'm a lousy shot with the BB, but then again, I have to hold a flashlight and open the squeeky door quietly as I go, so I give my self points for the effort.
I love you my friend. God Bless, and I will be back tomorrow to leave you more notes. I wish though I could erase everything I said tonight and start over. Please let's start over. ♥ Duckie.
I know you did, and it was sweet. And I know you are not so shallow either- you're a sweetheart. I'm just in one of those yucky places right now that come on sometimes. Please don't feel bad. You've been a sweet and proper gentleman and I love you for it. As for the what's and who's, well- lots. But I get in up and down places, I prefer the ups, when I can forget stuff for a little while, and remember who I am as a daughter of The King. I know He doesn't make junk, but sometimes I feel as though I have made such messes that I've turned what He made me into something not so nice. Then I get to remembering stuff and well, you don't need to hear all that right now. I am SO sorry to bring this stuff up now- and I felt so bad for making things worse. Please forgive me sweetGreenAngel. You have enough going on that you sure don't need me distracting. I love you my dear friend. More than you'll know. I am grateful to God for you. xoxoxo please stay safe myGreenAngel. Duckie
Whoa Duckie! What is up? Look I compliment you because I sense that maybe you need to hear a kind word.Every woman needs to hear that she is intelligent,funny and yes,beautiful.
I'm sure we have both envisioned at some point the way we may or may not look.But I am not here with a Vogue magazine to measure the way you look. I am not here because there is a possibility that you look like a Barbie Doll. I'm here because I enjoy the conversation.
If anything I am out of line here by over playing my hand. I should probably back off on the flirting a little.Maybe I am crossing the line with a married lady.If so,you need to tell me.
I don't know who or what has caused you to disparage yourself like you do.
God made you.
I don't think he made anything here on Earth without beauty.
Including & especially YOU.
One more thing. May the Lord be your front and rear quard, may His peace fill your spirit, and see you through whatever you're doing. I do love my GreenAngel, and pray you're still OK, and that we're still OK too. xoxoxo Please be safe. And I hope I "see" you sometime again soon. Love Duckie.
myGreenBeret, I didn't want to leave that conversation there. I am sorry for writing that, and I hope I didn't make you uncomfortable. I wish I could explain stuff better. Dang, I hate when I can't explain stuff. I just don't want you to be uncomfortable with me- but I don't want you to build me up in your mind either. I know what its like, as I have always wondered what you and others here look like, and have learned by experience (not just here, but other places) that folks very rarely look like what we think they do.
I wish I was pretty, so you would have something to look at... but what I lack there, I try and make up for in my encouraging and caring about others. I don't know if this makes sense at all. I just felt bad, because well, I just felt bad about how it ended up, because I didn't mean to be that way. Please forgive me my dearGreenAngel. xoxox Duckie.
Ps- I really am not a nutcase, but somewhat in a crazy up and down mood lately, and I'm afraid you're learning some of my not so good points. xoxox
Lord, myGreenBeret- I wish. Believe me, please, I am not much to look at. I might have a somewhat bubbly personality, but I don't and never did have much in the looks department. It scares me to think what you might think I look like because I don't measure up.
As for our secret page- trashing, never. I do however post prayer requests for you every now and then. The folks there, you know them all, and they are wonderful friends and brothers and sisters- who are always willing to pray along with me. Someday maybe... sigh.. you'll be able to come and stay- then you'll be welcomed as our newbie, and we do have fun with newbies ;-) xxoxoxo
Oh man,now I REALLY wished I had looked.I could have seen my beautiful Duckie.
If you are still as cute as the picture at Seven then you are a knockout now!!!
Secret Page??? Is that where you all go and talk trash about me?
You're the only person I ever care about defriending lol, but I understand. It was so special and you just completely made my week there. I was shocked and amazed.
As for snooping, I do sometimes, but ususally I know the person already whom I'm snooping through their photos and stuff. I'm kind of glad you didn't because I have a friend in my homeschool group who loves to take pictures on her phone, and she's posted a couple of me that I hate!! I hate photos of me, so that's why I showed you when I was young and dorky instead of old and dorky ;-)
Fb to me is like a lifeline. I love it because I have family and friends all over north America and I can keep in touch easier. There are a few of us Scoopers who have a secret page as well, and we really are a family. But Ido thank you and your boys for doing that. It meant the world to me. xoxoxoxo
Sweet dreams filled with peace for myGreenAngel.
Wherever you lay your head,
think of peace and home instead
there are others who love and with hope from above
pray soon you'll be home safely led.
Sorry, that was lame. Just made it up now, but I mean it. xoxoxox Rest well dear one.
It's not lame,I love it. Just got finished doing what needed to be done a little sooner than expected.I love it when things go RIGHT for a change.Bad guys 0.Good guys-+1.
It's morning here, evening there... and no matter where you are, you are on my mind. Sometimes I feel stupid for posting all of these, but I still have to hope you get to see them once or twice at least, and hope they help give you some comfort by getting "letters" from home. I hope you're OK and pray continuously.
I miss you. xoxox Duckie.
I'll be back later to pester you some more. xoxox
Well it's now going on 2 am and I am so tired. I hope all is well with you mySweetGreenBeret. I have been a busy, busy duckie tonight and earlier. I spent nearly 4 hours writing a Declaration of the Constitutional Freedom Party and partial platform. Whew- I didn't know it was coming honestly. I have just been so frustrated with the 2 parties, and the way the republican party has been blaming, whining and trying to figure out where we, not them went wrong. I've had it with them... So, eventhough I have no idea what I'm doing, nor do I even know if it will gain any interest, I wrote it, and have been spreading it around for others to read and give me their opinions and input. What I really need is for folks to help me,but frankly I don't know that any of us know quite what to do.
If you ever get time- you can visit the Declaration here: http://constfreparty.blogspot.com/
Had to start a whole new blog lol just to get it out there. I'll see where else I can spread it around tomorrow.
I've missed you a lot. Having stuff here going on, and just miss my friend. I pray things are OK. I always have you in my mind, in my prayers and in my heart.
I was thinking about one of my favorite songs earlier- so here's the lyrics... I've sent you the you tube for it before...
Walk along the river, sweet lullaby, it just keeps on flowing,
It don't worry 'bout where it's going, no, no.
Don't fly, mister blue bird, I'm just walking down the road,
Early morning sunshine tell me all I need to know
You're my blue sky, you're my sunny day.
Lord, you know it makes me high when you turn your love my way,
Turn your love my way, yeah.
Good old sunday morning, bells are ringing everywhere.
Goin to carolina, it won't be long and I'll be there ...
You are myGreenAngel, and you're my sunny day. You have no idea how much you brighten my life. God Bless you dear one. May our Lord's Peace be in your heart and mind. Sweet dreams MyGreenBeret xoxoxoxoxo Duckie.
Thinking about the other night on my way to church this morning made me grin all the way there. lol. Sorry- I'm pitiful. (I'm still grinning as I type) Said extra prayers for you this morning. One of our church members sang a beautiful solo this morning. I'd never heard the song, but it made me cry as I thought of you and your boys and some of the others.
I was weak and weary, I had gone astray,
walking in the darkness, I couldn't find my way.
Then a light came shining to lead me from despair,
all my sins forgiven, and I was free from care.
I found the answer, I learned to pray,
with faith to guide me, I found the way.
The sun is shining for me each day,
I found the answer, I learned to pray.
I was sad and lonely, all my hopes were gone,
days were long and dreary, I couldn't carry on.
Then I found the courage to keep my head up high,
once again I'm happy, and here's the reason why.
Keep your Bible with you, read it every day,
always count your blessings and always stop to pray.
Learn to keep believing and faith will see you thro',
seek to know contentment, and it will come to you.
If you can ever listen, here's Miss Mahalia Jackson's version of it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-xEGnnNMo7U
Hope all is OK with mySweetGreenBeret. Be well and God's Peace to you dear one. I'll be back pestering you a little later. xoxoxo Duckie
Good morning sunshine. I'm a bit hurried this mornin'. Gotta get ready for church. I'll be back in a little while. xoxoxoxo Hope all is well with you dear one. Love Duckie. xoxo
I guess I really ought to get the days and nights on track. Its going on midnight here. So, I'll say this time- Good morning GreenAngel. I hope all is well with you. I've had serious GBW withdrawls today lol :-) Seriously, I do think about you all the time, hoping and praying, for your boys too and others, but mostly you. I hope things are OK. It was a pretty quiet day here, except for my brutality on the pizza box which I told you about earlier. Oh, and that pesky possum is back tonight- I guess he needs another peppering of BBs. It's ready by the back door waiting for him. Other than that- it's been kind of boring. I don't have a quote or a poem tonigh, although I did write a long one yesterday afternoon, which I might some day have the courage to show you... but that's for another time and discussion. Tonight, I have a song. I don't know if you'll be able to listen, but it spoke to me just now when I played it... and it will be here for when you can hear it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gf4aa2ClcEI
Miss Jane Deere came over just now, pawed me on my arm. She does that a lot when I'm typing ;-) I put the heating pad down for her, and she immediately laid down on it. She is so ruint!
Alright. I'm babbling now. It's not that I don't have plenty to talk about... I just wish you were here to talk to. I know, and I love you for it. Have a Blessed Day I hope. God Be with you..
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
Good night dear one. ♥ Duckie.
Mornin' sunshine. I'm still a happy Duckie. Got laundry and house cleaning to do, so I'll be off for a little bit. Miss you lots. Things seem to be getting a little wild over in Israel- I posted this on another thread yesterday, as a reminder for everyone of the Lord's promise concerning His people....
O Israel, trust thou in the Lord: he is their help and their shield.
O house of Aaron, trust in the Lord: he is their help and their shield.
Ye that fear the Lord, trust in the Lord: he is their help and their shield.
The Lord hath been mindful of us: he will bless us; he will bless the house of Israel; he will bless the house of Aaron.
He will bless them that fear the Lord, both small and great.
The Lord shall increase you more and more, you and your children.
Ye are blessed of the Lord which made heaven and earth.
Hope all is well with you today. Always in my heart, always in my prayers. (((())))s mySweetGreenBeret
You certainly know how to make a duckie happy. I haven't smiled so big in a long time. That was a precious gift you gave me, and you have no idea how much I needed that. Please thank your boys for me too. You are such a blessing to me myGreenBeret. You have no idea.
This was on my facebook just now...
“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” John 14:27
It is a perfect one, which I needed... and I hope it gives you the same. Good night and sweet dreams myGreenAngel. xoxoxo Duckie.
Good morning my sweetGreenBeret. Hope all is well with you. You're always on my mind, in my heart and in my prayers. God Bless you dear one. love Duckie.
"Wherever we are, it is our friends that make our world." Henry Drummond
Dreams soft like feathers
where ever you lay your head
peace dreams of angels
Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.
And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday.
Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.
Return unto thy rest, O my soul; for the LORD hath dealt bountifully with thee.
Sorry myGreenAngel... these are for me as much as for you. xoxoxo Duckie
I'm coming over here for my daily letters. I needed to save space on the other place for you if and when you can.
xoxoxo I've been anxious, but praying helps. The Psalms give me peace. I never understood them so much as I have in these past few years. I love myGreenAngel. Be well.
The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.
Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident.
Children being taught to hate, to attack . And people wonder why so many young people die in war . Because their parents raise them to be weapons !
