    Scariest Movie You've Ever Seen?

    ...Just being curious again.....:redbeathe What movie got your heart pumping...and made you avoid dark alleys and black cats and creepy hotels and long, empty staircases for months??? For me, it was The Shining..I visited it's opening scene in Glacier National Park (I believe it's called Goose Island or something) this summer..all the memories came back...Those darting, haunting eyes, the axe chopping through the door, Heeeeere's Johnny...:uhoh21:...Makes me alert and watching my back every second ALL OVER AGAIN!!! http://farm1.staticflickr.com/58/224046343_2a325527a1_z.jpg It's muuuch prettier when not related to being snowed in with a psycho!! Have a blessed, and not so scary, day :)

    What makes you what you are?

    Here's a shout out to anyone to who believes in anything...simple right?? As you all know there's a hot division of nursing and spirituality. I am a christian and believe in John 3:16, and I just wanted to know what you all believe and why??? John 3:16:)

    HELP!! I date a toddler!!!! :O

    Okay well he's a few yrs older than me...but I can't help but comapre him to a tantrum throwing toddler!! I come home from work and he calls me as soon as I walk in the door (We don't live together because we're young) and it's, "I think I broke a finger today...wanna check it out?" "Can you bring something over...I'm starving!" Then when I do come over it's, "Get me a glass of water," etc... I think he's the greatest guy, and he does do alot for me but sheeeesh! Enough already!! He's extremely thoughtfu tho...So you know how if you're dating, the guy kinda gives you a ring? He gave me mine via fish lure....He tied it onto his fishing lure, without me looking, and told me to reel it in...AWWW right??? Still, are any of you dating or married to one of those sweet, irristible,toddlers???? Thx for reading!!

    Do you believe in Angels??

    I'm asking this out of hope..We all have that loved on that has passed on, and we want to believe that they can still see us, love us and comfort us, and even show us the way...Perhaps I am talking for myself, but there's been wayyyyy too many times in my life where strangers appear to me at the right place at the right time My grandmom died in 2007, and before she died, she promised me that whenever I heard the song "My Wish" (by Rascall Flatts) that at that very moment, she'd be smiling at me, and blowing me a kiss....Now, whenever I hear the song I burst into tears, thinking about her promise...I have to admit that I do believe she's there when that song comes on.. In a more physical aspect, there have been countless times where people will step out infront of me, and guide me with their light in my darkest hour, and it'll turn out they are the answer to my prayers...I also can't help but wonder and even believe that they are sent down from somewhere up above... Do you believe in angels? And if so, I really want to read your stories and thoughts!! Thank you for listening....Love you all:redbeathe Here's a link to the song, "My Wish"...I hope it makes you think of your special angel smiling down on you....

    Do you believe in Angels??

    Great post, and I should've been more clear in my original post about what my definition of an angel is...I was just wondering that if and when a person dies, are they able to still "look down on us" maybe, or still be able to guide us through life I guess.... Thank you all for the great responeses!! Love you all:redbeathe

    A New Perspective on Today....

    Today is Good Friday...Most of us know what this day signifies, and recognize it as the day Jesus died on the cross...and going outide, seeing crossses shining on steeples, and seeing everyone rush around for "that Sunday Easter dress" and it made me think about how important the concept of today really is...... For example: A woman goes out to buy a shirt, and she finds one she really likes. She has the money to pay for it. If she exchanges her money for the shirt, she's saying the shirt is more valuable than the money. If she keeps the money and doesn't purchase the shirt, she's saying that her money is more important than the shirt. This shows her "values", I guess you could call it.... Now, God had a Son.......and He put so much value on US, that He gave us His son to pay the debt for our sin. God loved us so much, He gave us His Son! That's the value he puts on us; Even those who don't believe in Him...To me, that makes me feel pretty valuable and loved...because that's the ultimate price anyone could ever pay... Just wanted to kinda put yet another spin, or perspective on this...Hope you all have a wonderful, peaceful and happy day!!!! :redbeathe:redbeathe:redbeathe Feel free to comment!!!! Love you all:redpinkhe

    A New Perspective on Today....

    Sometimes one's faith dwells within the person, and is much deeper and meaningful than what appears as illogical, and irrational...It's something much more personal than only believing what you can or cannot comprehend or see...Maybe that's why it's hard to seperate the person from the belief, because the belief is what makes the person complete as a whole...And while it's true that we "believers" may not hold all the answers to your questions, you may not hold every answer to your own beliefs...That's usually why it's called faith..Believing with all your heart without laying out and analyzing what you see as rational, logical, and reasonable.... I also think everyone here would defend their faith.....with ration and reason and logic....but you may interpret that as pushing our faith onto you...Just as if I were to attach a link to a Christian website.... As my grandma used to say, "They have ears, yet hear not.." I wish you the best, and a happy, reasonable, rational, coherent and logical day:redbeathe:redbeathe:redbeathe Be well :)

    A New Perspective on Today....

    I respect your beliefs, and thank you for voicing them...Perhaps you didn't mean offense in your post, and those words just slipped out?!?!:redbeathe My point in this thread was to highlight the fact of the events of Black Friday, and to also point out God loved you so much He valued you more than His son, whether you believe in Him or not...Just another perspective from someone else's shoes :)....I wasn't trying to make you believe in a holiday you think is a bunch of made up stuff...:redbeathe

    I Don't Go To Church..

    It's kinda a 'been-there-done-that' sort of thing....Now don't get me wrong..I believe SOME people NEED that church experience to get closer to God...but as far as 'I' go..I feel I can reach God without going to a building or giving 10%... I still believe that Jesus is God, and that salvation in Christ is all that matters..but I believe I get more of a "God-to-Me" connection without going to church..For instance... I pay my tithes when I make someone smile I do my devotions when I pray, anywhere, anytime I find the meaning to a sermon when those around me preach..Real-life morals you might say.. I am baptized when I rediscover God's greatness everytime I see His wonders I take communion when I converse with other believers, and find joy I meditate when I read His word and think of it's meaning I confess when I pray and pour out my heart to Him I minister when I touch someone's life My place of worship is anywhere I can see and feel His presence My revival is when I experience His love time and time again My prayer list includes those that touch my heart Church isn't bad by ANY means.... but this is just the way I get closer to God..without going to church..It's just me:) When I talk to Him, it's my mind flowing right to His...no matter what public opinion might say.. Sooo, I just wanted to see how you all get closer to God :) Thanks for reading!!

    Where is the line between faith and delusion?

    This brought up a good point....about how when people are nearing death, or are in hospitals, they claim they see God's face, or angels, or a staircase to Heaven, etc. A friend of mine said she saw Jesus' face smiling down from her when she was in the ICU....She believes she saw Jesus' face..who am I to tell her she's wrong, or judge her and say it was a mere delusion?!?! As far as the whole "tin foil" thing, I think basic logic and common sense could also determine where the line lays.....:redbeathe I also want to add that I feel God tells me to have compassion, to love, to have faith and hope, to make others smile....whether that's telling the cashier her nails or hair look nice, or telling the toll attendent that she's doing a great job, or just helping my elderly neighbor pull the trash can the rest of the way down their driveway.....Those are the types of things God tells me.....:redbeathe

    I Don't Go To Church..

    I like that idea about the Bible Study thread! Everyone has their own interpretation of the Bible, and it would be neat to hear different people's perspectives! You're right that it may not be the most popular, but so far I'm in :)

    Am I too harsh with my little sister??

    I agree with all of the above.. You are diminishing the trust she has in you by going through her phone to see who she has called/texted..and that's mostly what she needs at this age...someone she can turn to and trust as she pokes her head out into the world..Believe me, I'm talking from experience... With my 15yo baby sis (lol) we just talk it out..and most times when she says her feelings out loud, the gears click and she says, "Oh, maybe that's not a good idea." My luck and God bless :redbeathe Afterthoughts: Mazy said it perfectly! We learn our best lessons from mistakes, and while those mistakes hurt, they teach us lessons, and those lessons mold us into who we are :)

    Dementia: A Punishment

    My view? Dementia is the progressive deteoriation in cognitive function. It can be triggered by damage to the brain, various diseases and infections, head injuries, drugs, or nutritional deficiencies. It is linked to bad diet, brain/mind inactivity, poor diet, and depression..... I don't think it's a punishment to the person, or that there's some spiritual meaning behind it. It can affect anyone! It's also hard for me to think that my best buddy in the nursing home was diagnosed with it as a punishment....or that some greater power gave it to her to "get back at her" for something she did in her younger life.... But respectively, this is just MY view....it's how I look at dementia...:) (Whew!! Good thing I did a report on this last semester!!!:) ) God bless you all :redbeathe

    I Don't Go To Church..

    I love your view! And just as I said in my original post, I'm just one of those people that felt that going to church kinda lured me away from God.... Just because I don't go to church doesn't mean I have abandoned all my faith/beliefs in Him....it's just how 'I' get closer to Him:) :redbeathe.............................

    General Election 2012 Thread

    TWEETY FOR PRESIDENT!!!! :redbeathe
  21. I grew up in New Jersey, and not once did we say the Pledge of Allegiance in the morning at my public school. Why? It offended some students in the school/class that were offended by it.....according to their religion. While I respect that they have their beliefs, and all that, my great-grandfather's name is etched into the Vietnam memorial out front! He gave his life so we can say our Pledge of Allegiance to the flag he fought for! My uncle is retired Coast Guard...cousin is an Army Ranger who was forced to retire due to brain/bodily damage from a terrorist bomber..friend is currently in the Marines....But it's not just my family....millions of other families have lost loved ones that died in service...Or have had sons/daughter/dads that are now braind-dead and scarred with permanent battle wounds... I just can't understand why I'm not allowed to say the Pledge at school...You'd almost think it would be against the law.?!?!?

    Scariest Movie You've Ever Seen?

    Holy cow! yeah, that adds to the 'reality factor' alright! Now you probably relate certain scary scenes with places you drive by all the time....:)....I just visited ONE scene from The Shining, and got freaked out....Instead of absorbing the mountains and lakes, I was thinking, "Wheeeerrrrreeeee's Jooooohnny?"
