If you say so...

Reactions: 

Your Personality is Somewhat Rare (ISTP)
Your personality type is reserved, methodical, spirited, and intense.
Only about 6% of all people have your personality, including 3% of all women and 8% of all men
You are Introverted, Sensing, Thinking, and Perceiving.

Had to smile at this as this is how I feel at the moment... the weekend's National has smitten the party animal part of me... but it was a good weekend nevertheless. No one got seriously hurt... a few will be needing Voltaren for a while... especially in the Vets and Masters... pictures will be posted on another posting when I get around to getting the camera back from MoonDancer... without her there would have been none! Don't know what I would do without her!
"The art of being yourself at your best is the art of unfolding your personality into the person you want to be. . . . Be gentle with yourself, learn to love yourself, to forgive yourself, for only as we have the right attitude toward ourselves can we have the right attitude toward others." Wilfred Peterson, This Week (Oct. 1, 1961)

Where does reality stop?

Reactions: 
Amazing technology! This makes me realize we live in an amazing age. One where reality and virtual reality seem to be merging into one. No wonder many people do not know what the truth is any more.
Yet one thing is becoming even clearer to me day by day, that is that God loves us and wants us to be his children and not to be blinded by what we hear and see in the media...
So even when we lose sense of reality and seem to get immersed in a world that is whirling by, seemingly out of control know that He is Lord and loves you.
"No suffering or tragedy will ever separate you from God’s love." (Romans 8:35-39)

Love is more... than a full moon.

Reactions: 

Ceoma Feat. The Larx - Full Moon

[via FoxyTunes / Ceoma]

I adore you for every single thing that you are

there is something I can't hide

the feeling for you

There's a full moon above and the stars are alight
and I hope that you know that...

Your love is my home
But I'm only one
One of so many hearts undone
No love isn't cold
Love is an anchor
Holding you down..
When lonely..
When lonely..

Love is only a word
The meaning on earth
Isn't the truth of all you feel
And Love will revive
If love dies inside you
Just let it find you.. ooh..

Love is more than just a memory..
Love is more than just a song..
I give heaven up if I have it here

Love is more..
Love is more..

Love is more..

Love is far from alone
And closer than near
Love is the truth that knows no fear
And Love is alive
It's stirring inside you
Just let it find you...
I could not find all the lyrics to Full Moon the video song but the ones I caught sort of lead into the second song from Ceoma and complete the idea that I had when I heard the songs in my collection while thinking about MD away catching ticks...
I know I am a few days early as well to be talking about a full moon but as we both share a love for that celestial object I thought it would be appropriate. I will never forget that Hunters Moon last year... when something wonderful happened... Wow... almost a year it has been! What a year it has been as well!

Leave your dark city lights, its alright

Invisible but not hidden

Reactions: 
Technology seems to be catching up to SciFi at a rapid pace these days...
That got me thinking that no matter what you do... God always knows. There is no Invisibility Cloak to hide under, unless of course you confess your sins and ask for them to be washed away.
That and the teachings of a few Sundays got me thinking of how we see the Blood of Jesus and the Holy Spirit that is compared to living water... in fact when you think of it they are the same... when we let the Holy Spirit fill us every day we get washed by His blood as well. Amazing!
Of course at the same time we put on the Armour of God and become His soldiers, not to fight a physical enemy but the ones in the heavens... the Holy Spirit is then like an Invisibility Cloak to protect us from the attacks that will come our way.
"Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places."

How do you measure God?

Reactions: 

Today's APOD reminded me how often we want to measure and quantify God, put Him in a box and label Him in our own way. The opposite is true, we have been measured and found wanting but his Love given in boundless measure, bigger than the universe we know, through the sacrifice of Jesus makes us worthy again.
That is why this picture of the moon being measured reminded me again of His love... and how infinitely powerless we are to measure it. All we can do is give thanks and embrace it in faith while at the same time giving an overflowing portion of that love to our neighbors... by this we will be measured by others.
"One look around us ought to show that all our arbitrary measures and bounds have been clamped on us by mankind." Author Unknown
PS... fixed my Blogoversary counter... another measurement that was not working properly, some people use month/day and others day/month... I prefer the latter but Blogger is the opposite... this resulted in the counter saying 34 days till Blogoverary when in fact it has come and gone again on the 7th of July!
