The Last Lecture "The brick walls are there for a reason. The brick walls are not there to keep us out; the brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. The brick walls are there to stop the people who don't want it badly enough. They are there to stop the other people!" -Randy Pausch ^**^
If you find someone who makes you smile, who checks on you often to see if you're okay, who watches out for you and wants the very best for you, don't let them go. Keep them close and don't take them for granted. People like that are hard to find.
Here's to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in square holes, the ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. And while some see them as crazy, we see genius, because people who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world are the ones who do

You are only going to be as good as the people you surround yourself with so be brave enough to let go of those who keep weighing you down
People will show you who they are, but we choose to ignore it because we want them to be who we want them to be.
What has always been interesting for me regarding the walls that I build is are they keeping me in or are they keeping me out. Walls protect against vulnerability. Vulnerability protects against the need for building walls. Sometimes I am so busy breaking down walls that I don't see there is a door right around the corner.
lot of shelters refuse to let black cats be adopted, afraid they ... Halloween they do that, but in the same time, most shelters put these poor cats down because people do not adopt or buy them just because of their color. Superstition has hurt them far to long. It is enough!!!! I do this because I love black cats and I am their voice. More people should do this too. On here I see a lot of positive things about black cats and that is a start in the right direction. Theincensewoman

They used to use urine to tan animal skins, so families used to all pee in a pot & then once a day it was taken & Sold to the tannery.......if you had to do this to survive you were "Piss Poor" But worse than that were the really poor folk who couldn't even afford to buy a pot......they "didn't have a pot to piss in" & were the lowest of the low The next time you are washing your hands and complain because the water temperature isn't just how you like it, think about how things used to be. Here are some facts about the 1500s: Most people got married in June because they took their yearly bath in May, and they still smelled pretty good by June.. However, since they were starting to smell . ...... . Brides carried a bouquet of flowers to hide the body odor. Hence the custom today of carrying a bouquet when getting Married. Baths consisted of a big tub filled with hot water. The man of the house had the privilege of the nice clean water, then all the other sons and men, then the women and finally the children. Last of all the babies. By then the water was so dirty you could actually lose someone in it.. Hence the saying, "Don't throw the baby out with the Bath water!" Houses had thatched roofs-thick straw-piled high, with no wood underneath. It was the only place for animals to get warm, so all the cats and other small animals (mice, bugs) lived in the roof. When it rained it became slippery and sometimes the animals would slip and fall off the roof... Hence the saying "It's raining cats and dogs." There was nothing to stop things from falling into the house. This posed a real problem in the bedroom where bugs and other droppings could mess up your nice clean bed. Hence, a bed with big posts and a sheet hung over the top afforded some protection. That's how canopy beds came into existence. The floor was dirt. Only the wealthy had something other than dirt. Hence the saying, "Dirt poor." The wealthy had slate floors that would get slippery in the winter when wet, so they spread thresh (straw) on floor to help keep their footing. As the winter wore on, they added more thresh until, when you opened the door, it would all start slipping outside. A piece of wood was placed in the entrance-way. Hence: a thresh hold. In those old days, they cooked in the kitchen with a big kettle that always hung over the fire.. Every day they lit the fire and added things to the pot. They ate mostly vegetables and did not get much meat. They would eat the stew for dinner, leaving leftovers in the pot to get cold overnight and then start over the next day. Sometimes stew had food in it that had been there for quite a while. Hence the rhyme: Peas porridge hot, peas porridge cold, peas porridge in the pot nine days old. Sometimes they could obtain pork, which made them feel quite special. When visitors came over, they would hang up their bacon to show off. It was a sign of wealth that a man could, "bring home the bacon." They would cut off a little to share with guests and would all sit around and chew the fat. Those with money had plates made of pewter. Food with high acid content caused some of the lead to leach onto the food, causing lead poisoning death. This happened most often with tomatoes, so for the next 400 years or so, tomatoes were considered poisonous. Bread was divided according to status. Workers got the burnt bottom of the loaf, the family got the middle, and guests got the top, or the upper crust. Lead cups were used to drink ale or whisky. The combination would Sometimes knock the imbibers out for a couple of days. Someone walking along the road would take them for dead and prepare them for burial.. They were laid out on the kitchen table for a couple of days and the family would gather around and eat and drink and wait and see if they would wake up. Hence the custom of holding a wake. England is old and small and the local folks started running out of places to bury people. So they would dig up coffins and would take the bones to a bone-house, and reuse the grave. When reopening these coffins, 1 out of 25 coffins were found to have scratch marks on the inside and they realized they had been burying people alive... So they would tie a string on the wrist of the corpse, lead it through the coffin and up through the ground and tie it to a bell. Someone would have to sit out in the graveyard all night (the graveyard shift.) to listen for the bell; thus, someone could be, saved by the bell or was considered a dead ringer. And that's the truth....Now, whoever said History was boring
Minute to win it winter game... the kids put vaseline on their noses and threw up a red pom poms to catch on their noses...the had a minute to get one to stick....we adapted it to see how many times they could get a pom pom within the minute to keep them fully entertained for the full minute.

Chicken Swing! It's a great cheep<-(haha) way to keep birds from boredom! We put one up in each of our two coops after a tree fell down. We used some of the limbs and some rope to make a chicken swing. They really seem to like it. Sometimes, my bantam cochin Jill will sit up in it and go to sleep!
" Little children don’t see color. Or rust. Or many of the glaring faults and differences that attract the attention of adults. We are the ones who teach them what’s important. We are the ones who tell them what and who is or isn’t good enough."
“One of the blessings of the temple is the perspective that it provides. When we go to the house of the Lord, we leave all of our cares and problems at the door. And when we come back out, they’re still there. We have to pick them back up and they haven’t changed, but what has changed is us.” –Elder D. Todd Christofferson
This is the truest thing in a frienship to me!!! It is easy to enable and lie to keep a friend down with you...but it takes a friend who really cares for YOU more than them that can be honest about a situation. May be not perfect...but honest. Blessed with honest friends.
If you find someone who makes you smile, who checks up on you [...], who watches out for you and wants the very best [...], keep them close.
WHAT'S GOING ON? There is so much going on in the world today! Some things are so BIG and out of our control that we feel there is nothing we can do. Many who don't know Jesus Christ feel that He has deserted us. That He doesn't exist because what kind of "god" would allow such chaos and confusion. BUT we know that Jesus Christ does exist and there is power in His name! There IS something that we can do...PRAY! PRAYER is a powerful weapon! The apostle Paul wrote, “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ” (2 Cor. 10:3-5). We are to pray against these things going on today, it is written that things will get worse HOWEVER... THERE IS POWER WHEN CHRISTIANS UNITE AND PRAY AGAINST THE ENEMY! Even when the storms rage against us we are to be firmly planted in Him so that we do not fall. We are to be UNMOVABLE, UNSHAKABLE, STEADFAST in Him! Psalm 50:15 says, Then call on Me when you are in trouble, and I will rescue you, and you will give Me glory.” We have to know that certain things are allowed to take place but God has NOT forgotten us! This is our time to prepare for battle! Suit up in the Armor of God! For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist,with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith,with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people (Ephesians 6:12-18). We must strengthen our foundation and trust that no matter what is going on in our country or around the world GOD IS IN CONTROL! Spread the love of Jesus Christ with someone today! Show them how to Repent and pray. Strengthen your walk with Christ! Help someone else establish a walk with Him! We know that the enemy comes to steal, kill, and destroy BUT what a MIGHTY GOD WE SERVE! Please visit 1st fruits ministries FB home page and click LIKE! www.1stfruitsministriesllc.com
Sept. 24, 1913: A problem is beginning to grow as Chicago heads for the cold winter - scores of unemployed people are showing up in the city. And a push/race is on to figure out where to house them/put them.
A returned sister missionary said: "Put sticky notes in the back of your planner. Every time you make out an appointment, give an investigator a reading assignment or commitment write it down for them! Ive had companions do this one and now I do. Some people forget the second you walk out the door, they show up on Tuesday at 1 when you told them Saturday at 7."

This is how God wants us to be! Some days I just wanna give up...I get tired of having to be that strong girl who never cries and who is always there for my friends. I love them but I sometimes care too much and become emotionally spent! Some days I just wanna be held by somebody and let out all the tears that I have had to hold back for so long and for so many people. God says to "break our hearts for what breaks his..."he never said it would b easy.
