Can I Be Free From Worry?

Yes you can be free Shalom ☺️

Women of Worth Worldwide

by Jo Umberger

There was a time in my life when I thought I would scream if one more person said to me, “Just don’t worry about it.” “Just,” I thought. “Apparently you think refraining fromworry is a simple proposition!”

Honestly I had no idea how to stop worrying.“But what if we don’t have enough money? Or one of us is in a car crash? What if things don’t work out like we need them to work out?”

The roots of this kind of negative anticipatory thinking can be many. For me, worry was a way of dealing withunpleasant circumstancesthat were outside my control.

It’s twisted but here it is. Somewhere along the way I bought into the lie that analyzing the problem over and again would solve the problem.That’s a big, fat, lie!

When we worry, we are meditating on the negative.

Take a deep breath. Let it out…

He’s raised her as his own, and though he’s warned her away from dragons… she can’t find it in herself to be afraid. I hope […]

The Bible and its Story: The Removal From the Cross

Jesus was dead. Such friends as had not deserted Him desired that at least His body might have honorable burial. One of them, Joseph of Arimathæa, was a senator of the city, a man of wealth and importance. He had not dared announce openly his faith in Christ “for fear of the Jews.” But now […]

Great posting love your thought

The Slog

There are two inescapable truisms in relation to modern history: nothing but nothing destroys social glue and civilised cultural behaviour like hyperinflation. And when it happens in Germany, it dictates the future for anything up to and exceeding three quarters of a century.

Below I offer a considered update of events in the UK and EUNATO…the main theme being the largely irrelevant nature of the former, and the determination of mad people to use the latter as a stepping stone to the New Normal New World Order New Labour Good Health Bad Climate Very Happy Zero Liberty Globalist Interactive Virtual Monopoly Board available from a Games retailer close to you.

But first, we really do need to talk about Deutschland……über alles.

GOBLETS is set in a quasi-Medieval/Georgian mash-up of a pseudo-England. And pancakes have been around since at LEAST 600 BC. They first show up in Greece, and later make an appearance as the means to using up dairy before Lent fasting in 1100 AD. And need I mention pancake races of Olney, Buckinghamshire, UK circa 1445?

Anyway, there is a very good chance that the Spinning Cup Inn whipped up a…
