God is King of the whole earth and heaven, there is no one like Him! He is your salvation, your strength and your peace; in your distress He will stretch out His Hand to lift you and save you;
God is Master of the Heavens and the earth, and there is no one like Him, no one you can compare Him with; I tell you: stay awake because no one knows the day when your Master is coming to you; the Almighty One will not prolong His decision;
He shall come to you all in a Pillar of Fire and the light of His people will become a fire and your Holy One a Flame burning and devouring the shrewdness of evil; 1 His Light will penetrate and pierce Darkness and those who could not see will see; He will destroy the proud of the present world; the remnant left will be His Own, it will be so scarce that even a child would be able to count it unless the Almighty One hears from the earth a cry of repentance! His sentence is just;
remain in the Lord, Vassula, and He will give you strength; I will guard you;
1 Allusion to the Purification.

speaking of bears , I'm sure you have heard of pedobear right? Anyway, I might regret posting this but I in no way approve of pedophiles or anti-catholic hate speech, it's just that I found this funny .

Use pretzels as butterfly wing frames, and stick them together with softened caramel candy or peanut butter. Sprinkle chocolate chips on top.
So I had a lot of ideas for Alphabe-Thursday and the letter B this week and I knew I couldn't link them all but I could still post them , cause it's my blog and I can if I want :p . It's too cute
Our two cats were left in the basement apartment for an unusually long amount of time . I felt bad about that , but I was struggling to survive in an abusive relationship and everything else was rather irrelevant as I could not care more about them then my circumstances allowed.
Anyway , we all know cats are the carriers of those little creepy crawly fleas and for that I hate cats too .
I was living in Vancouver, God knows why anyone would want to live there to begin with , ok yeah, blame it on my abusive husband , but it seems to be the case that most cats and dogs in that city have fleas . I feel sorry for them , I really do.
Our carpets were infested pretty badly …it was like the plague! I didn’t want to stay there , you know I was trying to escape with my life from my abusive husband who never gave a damn about the cats or the fleas or me or the baby or the apartment ! He could have taken the cats out , cleaned the carpets , got the house fumigated before I came home from the hospital . You would think any man in their right mind would do this for their family . Except I blame myself for not going to live with my aunt and my grandma and for not leaving him, and that flea infested forsaken hell hole.
I came home from the hospital with baby and it was like beelzebul sent a hungry swarm of fleas on me , when I went into the bathroom . The last sanctioned vestibule for a new mother, to have a shower . It was the only place without carpet too, as I sat on the toilet I looked down and my ankles were covered in fleas! I screamed bloody murder.
I didn’t get much sleep the first night, and I watched my baby like a hawk in the crib right next to the bed, making damn sure no flea was getting near him or his swaddling blankets. It was funny too that my sister and her boyfriend came over and stayed in the other bedroom, but they left after about an hour, which was really longer than I expected because they couldn’t stand the fleas either . Each flea I squished with my nails, some had blood on them , no doubt from one of us , gross.
Our landlord had many cats upstairs so I got rid of our two cats , sent them upstairs with the others . This would not solve the flea problem but in the course of the following days we had our carpets removed and got new carpet installed at the landlord's expense . I got rid of all our furniture and things that might have had flea residue . It was an ordeal I will never forget .
|Adult bed bug feeding on a human.|
My experience with bed bugs happened 5 or 6 years ago . My couch and chair were both infested with them . I had allowed certain people in my house who were living on the streets basically, and the bed bugs probably came in that way. This website and this video explain exactly what they are all about. If you don’t know anything about them rest assured in real life they are even worse..... it was a nightmare.

"Saith Tammi, 'Consider ye this on the forgiveness of one's enemies: Let he who would slander you sup at your table, let he who would inflict…I saith unto thee: Look upon mine eyes, which dwell within mine head, and not upon mine bosom, wherein no wisdom dwells.' And then did Tammi snappeth her fingers together, saying, 'Seriously; I doth mean it. Up here.'"

- 1st.turned all the waters into blood
- 2nd.loosed frogs
- 3rd.sciniphs- n. 1. Some kind of stinging or biting insect, as a flea, a gnat, a sandfly, or the like.
I had to look it up
- 5th.Murrain among cattles- literally means "death" Wikipedia entry
- 6th.boils on men
- Seven Last Plagues
- Seven seals
- Seven vials
he 7 Thunders reference 7 vile sins; These are God's Wrathful words.
So each thunder is like a peal. And the corresponding punishment, drills down to the Seven Vials. In descending order. God does not punish good behavior, He punishes sin.
Are the sins of men referencing the 7 Deadly Sin's or Capital Sins. The Lord said as knowledge increases so does the sins of men. So they evolve.
So, all these Seven Lasts are to punish sin. And you can read them in Apocalypse, and see how men are reacting. They are so into sin, that, they cannot see anything else, and even God's punishments don't seem to serve any purpose for evolved sinners. Which Jesus calls 'spiritually wicked'.
Peace be with you always

By using wordcalc I calculated 88 words in my story. Thank Shakira for the link. My story is part non-fiction Hey, I told you "I need practice!"
WEEK 21 PROMPT
He never dreamed when he blew out the candles on his cake...that he would be honored by a crew of peculiar bloggers. It was a shocking surprise! and oh!... the stories that would follow, would peak his curiosity.
The candles reminded him of each person who would have their part to tell , and it just made the candles more bright and lively. It was an amusing thought , and he couldn't stop laughing and giggling for one minute as he stared at his birthday cake , trying to take in as much air as he could to blow all those candles out .
There are two powers to choose from for man: Love or Hatred.
Love is the greater power for it creates Life.
Whereas Hatred destroys life.
Only Love can give Life back to a destroyed life. The life of a soul. The flesh is the same as a flower, it is easily destroyed. Whereas the soul is immortal. It cannot be erased. It can however be denied Life by your own will.
Wars serve out hatred. For war is about killing and robbing life. Though the life wars destroy are flesh lives, each person has a soul. If a persons kills, it violates the order of Life. Wars, are a contradiction in terms of Judicial Punishment of Killing. A war is the greater hatred of man infested with Satanism, towards his fellow man. He violates even his own Judicial Law in his own country. This in itself is a contradiction. Why have this law if you kill your neighboring country's citizens whose blood is red as well?
Greed and avarice is why men kill other men. They covet their neighbor's goods, wives, land so forth. The Ninth and Tenth Commandments.
Thus, this Judicial Law is hypocritical in every shape and form.
If you tell your citizens not to kill, and punish them when they are caught, by putting them in jail, but go to other countries with arms and kill them for not even killing a single hair on your head, this is hypocrisy at the grand scale. This is what war is. A means to rob. Period. You don't like someone and you repeat Cains act.
God is true. Truth. He sees perfectly thus Guides morals in those who want good morals.
The rest are fodder for Satan's Cave. You make nice flooring for him.
Now, Jesus said, "do unto other's as you would have them, do unto you." If you go and rob another country, your country will be robbed. The punishment fits the crime. Thus, God warned the Leaders. They did not listen. Now it is time for God to act, in true Justice. He is perfect in Justice as He is in Salvation. He does not lack perfection. His faculties are not 'limited'; His Eye does not miss a single dot. His Memory is not faint. His Intelligence is not faulty.
Wars, are a no no. You will be punished for your injustices.
If your laws, cover certain issues, which you do not honor but use them to beat on your citizens, it will be recompensed to you two or threefold.
If your laws, cover certain issues, which you do not honor, but go abroad and declare a new set of laws, to rob and kill, it will be recompensed upon you two and threefold, nay ten times ten, and thus you will know that I am the Lord, Your Forsaken God.
Oh, men greedy for gain, but do not understand the laws of God, how do you expect to live? Knowing that you have greater sins then the rest of your citizens? I leave you to the dregs of Hell.
Peace be with you always

I remember first hearing about these twins sharing one body from the religion forum on myspace . The question is 'Are they one?' . Of course they are! Try separating them lol. It's not easy. They may have separate identities and two hearts but this is an extreme concept that is hard to grasp . We think married couples are one flesh and God as One in Three persons .
Listen to this documentary film and watch them pass their drivers license exam.

I found out what it was and I have removed it. My apologies for the inconvenience , even though there was no real threat .

It was exciting to watch Benedict 16th visit the Uk last week live on webcast tv . You can watch all the highlights again by clicking the link on my sidebar .
A is for Absurd Archie comics.
I am not American let alone follow politics at all, because I can’t stand it , but some blogs are just too awesome and intriguing that I had to share this from Weazel Zippers , and because I love Archie comics . Is this depiction of Sara Palin and Obama sorta accurate? lol

I have found Opera Browser faster than any other one .

Mealworms, which feed on grain meal, are the larvae of a beetle. They are about an inch or so long. Not to be confused with flour beetle larvae or grain moths which can infiltrate your pantry. They tend to absorb the flavors in which they are being cooked, so if you sautée them in butter, they will taste buttery. They also tend to taste like the food in which they have been raised; worms raised on wheat flour taste like bread. If you don’t want them to have the taste of what they’ve been eating, let them go without food for 24 hours and “then you have an empty-gutted meal worm,” Mr. Turpin said. “Perfect for soaking up flavors.” On a low flame with hot oil it takes about two to three minutes to cook them. And one last tip from Mr. Turpin: “Eat them head first or tail first, though I have found that the best way to eat them, especially those trying them for the first time, is with one hand over their eyes.”
Wax Moth Larvae
These larvae, which look like white caterpillars and are about an inch long, come from the bee moth. They have a soft body and make an excellent addition to trail mix, Mr. Turpin said. (Sautée, roast and mix with peanuts and pretzels.) They are a little more difficult to work with, as they are shipped in sawdust and need to be cleaned. An easy way to do this is to set the sawdust and larvae pile on a table and to shine a light onto it. The larvae will crawl away from the light source. Unlike mealworms, which have a hard exoskeleton, these worms tend to shrivel up when cooked. They taste sweet since they feed on the wax of honeybees.
Brown House Crickets
These insects are about an inch to an inch and a half long. They can be used in a variety of ways: dry roast them, shuck them (take off their wings and legs), or put them on a tooth pick and dip them in chocolate. (Mr. Turpin said one of his favorite recipes is to replace half the chocolate chips in a standard chocolate-chip cookie recipe with shucked crickets. He calls them Chocolate chirpy chip cookies.) Because of their exoskeleton, they don’t absorb much flavor, although they do have a distinctive taste of their own. “I can’t compare them to something someone would recognize,” Mr. Turpin said. “They taste like cricket. They are very much their own flavor.” The outside is crunchy and the inside is soft, like a jelly-filled doughnut, he added.

Lyrics written by Mike Grothem
For all the years of misery
Daily beatings upon my mind
trying to break my will
Not a day goes by that I don't live
with the pain you caused inside
I cannot take back what I have lost,
but I can repay my suffering
My day for vengeance is at hand
and the taste is ever sweet
Forgive me Lord for all I've done,
but not for what I'm about to do
Victory is in my sight, I clutch the key
I hold in my hand that which will make me free.
If I could, I'd wrap this chain around your neck
and bind you for all eternity
I'd pierce your heart,
but it's too late,
I'll watch it bleed.
I'm taking back my life, which you stole
This is for the minds you raped and left and endless hole.
I've waited for his day, I've dreamed of how it would be
With no remorse I crack a smile
and listen to you scream
You made your choice, now I've made mine
For you their will be no mercy.
I'm sending you back to where you came as
I pray (5x)
as we pray (3x)
as I pray
Hail Mary full of grace the Lord is with thee, blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus, holy Mary, mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death Amen.
Yes, on the surface this song may sound sick and demented. It is really about the day we discover the hold that the devil has on us and we turn our lives fully over to God and renounce the devil. It is when we find the great weapon against the devil, the rosary, and reap revenge for all the pain he has caused us. -Mike

Mike Voris gives an overview of our society in the 21st century & its hostility to the Church. The Faith is retreating in every corner of the world like never before. We need to be strong Catholics and 'fearlessly daring' in the face of moral decline.

Who will be the next Pope? I’d love to see the good looking young one . Anyway they did such a good job these last 4 days . They stuck by the Pope everywhere he went . I just hope the Pope didn’t need help using the bathroom :|
It’s always sad to see a beloved one go but I am sure they are happy to be returning home , to Rome . They must be tired .
ByBye ! It’s been a slice …or two…. or three …..
I enjoyed watching it all in the comforts of my own home and will look forward to watching it again, I’m sure; live on webcast. Thanks to the Vatican . If you want to know how much it actually cost the Vatican and how much it cost the government of England , go here and click on cost and logistics in the interactive guide .
I can’t finish without posting this fun picture of the popemobile . It was one of the luxuries of being whisked around from place to place other than planes and helicopters . (I can’t remember where I originally saw this drawing. I apologize for not giving credit where credit is due.)
I don’t know what all the fuss was about Our Lady of Cardigan
God Bless the Queen and the Pope!
Q:What is Beatification?
A: Declared a Saint by the Church. Venerable John Henry Newman was beatified today in Cofton Park . He was born in 1801 and declared blessed on September 19, 2010 . Not bad .
We honor the saints, we don't worship them . The Pope has designated Oct 9th the feast day of Blessed John Henry Newman . To God Be The Glory!
