PRAY for those going through a troubled marriage

                    "PRAY" for those going through a troubled marriage
                                       (9 points to ponder)

1. Marriage is a commitment you made not only to each other but unto God.

2. Marriage is a lifetime commitment.

3. Marriage takes a lot of work 24/7, but well worth the effort

4. Marriage is a wonderful union between a man and a woman, the two of you are no longer two, but one flesh. Genesis 2:24

5. Marriage is a union that grows into a work of art when you both put in the time and effort

6. Stop looking at the faults of your partner and start looking at your own faults, that's your part to work on and change,

7. PRAY for your marriage, your partner, your family, ask God what areas "YOU" need to work on in order to have a harmonious marriage

8. ALL MARRIAGES have problems, it's how you work out your problems that makes your marriage stronger

9. Don't throw in the towel and walk away, "YOU" have work to do, first things first, get down on your knees and begin to pray

Harrison Arkansas

Whats up in Harrison Arkansas?

Harrison is filled with Banks, Pizza Places, & Thrift Stores.

Yep we just got the Good Will here in Harrison and the parking lot is full of lookie lou's. how fast they have forgotten all the other thrift stores that have carried for them through the years and need their support. NO I don't have anything against the Good Will, we just don't need another thrift store here when we already have more then enough

Banks, we have 2 new ones being built here in Harrison. ...Someone here must have money in order to support yet another 2 new banks. lets see, corner stone & stone bank??? why... just how many banks does Harrison need anyhow, I think we have 2 & 3 of the same name banks from the north end to town to the south end of town, now the corner banks want some action??? HUMMMN

Pizza, yes pizza's good, but I think the people in Harrison must not know how to cook, because were carrying alot of pizza joints...
 I think Harrison would fair better to create home-economics in school and teach the kids how to cook and care for their homes and family again. Having babies and raising them on fast food, sugared foods and junk food isn't the way to do it, and they wonder why they are always brook

I thought when they voted Harrison to be a wet county that we'd be over-run with liquor stores... NO in fact we're not, they must have a lid on the liquor store that are allowed here, a good thing I'm thinking..

yep, this is my blog where I can express my likes and dis-likes.. Hope you don't mind my ranting every now and then

Blessings upon you all

Psalm 91

              Psalm 91 King James Version (KJV)

91 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

2 I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.

3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.

4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.

5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;

6 Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.

7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.

8 Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.

9 Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;

10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.

11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.

12 They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.

13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.

14 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.

15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.

16 With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.

King James Version (KJV)

Old Glory

 I am the flag of the United States of America
My name is Old Glory.

I fly atop the world's tallest buildings.
I stand watch in America's halls of justice.
I fly majestically over great institutes of learning.
I stand guard with the greatest military power in the world.
Look up! And see me!

I stand for peace, honor, truth, and justice.
I stand for freedom.
I am confident . . . I am arrogant.
I am proud.

When I am flown with my fellow banners,
my head is a little higher,
my colors a little truer.

I bow to no one.
I am recognized all over the world.
I am worshipped.
I am saluted.
I am respected.
I am revered. I am loved.
And I am feared.

I have fought every battle of every war for more than 200 years...
Gettysburg, Shilo, Appomatox, San Juan Hill, the trenches of France,
the Argonne Forest, Anzio, Rome, the beaches of Normandy,
the deserts of Africa, the cane fields of the Philippines,
the rice paddies and jungles of Guam, Okinawa, Japan, Korea, Vietnam,
and a score of places long forgotten by all but those who were with me.
I was there!

I led my soldiers.
I followed them.
I watched over them...
They loved me.

I was on a small hill in Iwo Jima.
I was dirty, battle-worn and tired,
but my soldiers cheered me,
and I was proud.

I have been soiled, burned, torn and trampled on the streets of countries
I have helped set free.
It does not hurt . . . for I am invincible.
I have been soiled, burned, torn and trampled on the streets of my country,
and when it is by those with whom I have served in battle . . . it hurts.
But I shall overcome . . . for I am strong.

I have slipped the bonds of Earth
and stand watch over the uncharted new frontiers of space
from my vantage point on the moon.
I have been a silent witness to all of America's finest hours.
But my finest hour comes
when I am torn into strips to be used for bandages
for my wounded comrades on the field of battle.
when I fly at half mast to honor my soldiers...
and when I lie in the trembling arms
of a grieving mother at the graveside of her fallen son.
I am proud.

My name is Old Glory.

Dear God . . . Long may I wave!

Presidental Elections

This is just my personal opinion, you can agree with it or not, just expressing myself here.

I personally feel if your going to run for President of the United States, (our highest office) you should have to have served in our Military first at some point of your life. This way you personally have a first hand understanding of what the cost of our freedom is. Also they'll have a better understan...ding of how to handle things that come up in other countries

I also feel, in matters of Voting, if we as a voting American don't like the candidates selected, there should be an option for none of the above... PERIOD. Thus they should have to start all over finding and electing candidates for the Voting Americans to choose from.... (NONE OF THE ABOVE)

Also, every vote should be COUNTED! Not electorial votes... Maybe then more citizens might get involved and actually vote in our country.

Just my 2 cents worth

BEST Marriage Advice

Always keep God 1st place in your Marriage, Family & Life

Choose to love each other even in those moments when you struggle to like each other. Love is a commitment, not a feeling.

Alway...s answer the phone when your husband/wife is calling and when possible, try to keep your phone off when you’re together with your spouse.

Make time together a priority. Budget for a consistent date night. Time is the “currency of relationships” so consistently invest time into your marriage.

Surround yourself with friends who will strengthen your marriage and remove yourself from people who may tempt you to compromise your character.

Make laughter the soundtrack of your marriage. Share moments of joy, and even in the hard times, find reasons to laugh.

In every argument, remember that there won’t be a “winner” and a “loser.” You are partners in everything so you’ll either win together or lose together. Work together to find a solution.

Remember that a strong marriage rarely has two strong people at the same time. It’s usually a husband and wife taking turns being strong for each other in the moments when the other feels weak.

Prioritize what happens in the bedroom. It takes more than sex to build a strong marriage, but it’s nearly impossible to build a strong marriage without it!

Remember that marriage isn’t 50-50, divorce is 50-50. Marriage has to be 100-100. It’s not splitting everything in half, but both partners giving everything they’ve got!

Give your best to each other, not your leftovers after you’ve given your best to everyone else.

Learn from other people, but don’t feel the need to compare your life or your marriage to anyone else’s. God’s plan for your life is masterfully unique!

Don’t put your marriage on hold while you’re raising your kids or else you’ll end up with an empty nest and an empty marriage.

Never keep secrets from each other. Secrecy is the enemy of intimacy.

Never lie to each other. Lies break trust and trust is the foundation of a strong marriage.

When you’ve made a mistake, admit it and humbly seek forgiveness. You should be quick to say, “I was wrong. I’m sorry. Please forgive me.”

When your husband/wife breaks your trust, give them your forgiveness instantly which will promote healing and create the opportunity for trust to be rebuilt. You should be quick to say, “I love you. I forgive you. Let’s move forward.”

Be patient with each other. Your spouse is always more important that your schedule.

Model the kind of marriage that will make your sons want to grow up to be good husbands and your daughters want to grow up to be good wives.

Learn from other people, but don’t feel the need to compare your life or your marriage to anyone Else. God’s plan for your life is masterfully unique!

Never talk badly about your spouse to other people or vent about them online. Protect your spouse at all times and in all places.

Always wear your wedding ring. It will remind you that you’re always connected to your spouse and it will remind the rest of the world that you’re off limits!

Connect into a community of faith. A good church can make a world of difference in your marriage and family.

Pray together. Every marriage is stronger with God in the middle of it.

When you have to choose between saying nothing or saying something mean to your spouse, say nothing every time!

Never consider divorce as an option. Remember that a “perfect marriage” is just two imperfect people who refuse to give up on each .
