Great idea brother Wally. Apply liberally, rinse and repeat
August 12, 2017 at 12:23
LOL, says the guy who just comes over here to tell me I am a screw up.
Have a nice day, preacher.

When did I ever call you a screw up?

I really don’t want to argue with you okay? Your intent and meaning with your comment is clear. If I have mis-classified your intent, then say so. It’s hard to actually have a dialogue with you when all you do is run in, toss a pot shot, then go away.
But, if that is all you want to do here, then your presence is quite useless.
Have a nice day(for real.)

You have a difficult time distinguishing criticism of your ideas and beliefs and posts from criticizing you personally. You are over sensitive and insecure. Take time to consider.
August 12, 2017 at 15:01
Great, then consider this your chance to express what exactly you find lacking in the post? Have I expressed a thought counter to the Scripture included? Is the thought itself a bad thought? Are you saying we should not worry more about our own faults than we do the faults of others? I am confused as to the exact issue you have with the post. I really did come across as a criticism of the way I conduct myself.
Perhaps if you spoke words and engaged others, rather than just odd seeming randomish comments we would all understand more clearly what you are tying to express.
Nobody is getting ruffled here, Mike. This is merely an attempt to offer you a chance to say exactly what you mean, so we all understand.

Actually brother wally, my original comment was in agreement with the post. You’re the one who turned this sideways as you over reacted.
I guess humility and self control are not two of the fruits of the spirit you’ve mastered yet.
Eventhough, I did have a wonderful day out with the wife.

Well, if you didn’t mean it that way, I apologize
August 12, 2017 at 19:20
And… apology accepted. Have a wonderful and happy evening. I have pino noir on my mind. You?

LOL! You know that Scottish Highlander game where they hurl that log? Yes I confess, often when people come at me on the internet full bore, I picture that guy in my head and just start laughing.
August 12, 2017 at 12:24
Yeah, seems you are a prophet, as I just got a big one chunked at me by some “preacher.”
LOL! Sorry about that, Wally. Our pastor once kind of scared me, he was smiling and he told us, “when I point a finger at someone there are never going to be four more pointing back at me.” I thought, “yikes!”
It’s a great concept however. So, so many people are busy wagging their fingers at us they don’t even see the four other fingers pointing right back at them. 🙂

Well, and to be perfectly frank, we probably can’t claim innocence in the matter. I have said it before, and will again, most times these thoughts come out of a lesson I have been taught. Bad mouthing appeals greatly to our sinful nature, and helps us deflect the burden of it in another direction.
August 12, 2017 at 12:44
True, Wally! The reason I can laugh at that highlander is because I have been him.
However, there is something to be said for clearing your own slate and boldly speaking the truth in love.

Thanks for the visit and the comment. Be blessed!

I love this reminder! We cannot control, neither should we try to control, other people. Especially before we’ve been able to exert full control over our own selves. If any one of us actually progresses to the point of full self-possession, I cannot imagine there would be much of a draw to enforcing ones own will upon another. Just my own thoughts:)
August 12, 2017 at 15:41
I think that is a really interesting point, Kristen. I don’t know for sure, but you maybe right. If we ever got that far along ourselves it might not appeal to is at all. In fact, that might be an important link in us progressing. It’s all just sort of tied together!
August 12, 2017 at 15:42
If either of us ever make it there, we need to promise to check in with each other and report with our personal findings:)
August 12, 2017 at 16:05
Ha! I am thinking this is a conversation that may only take place in Heaven. We can compare then.
August 12, 2017 at 21:35
[sigh]…What if I don’t wanna? lol…just kidding. Or am I?
August 13, 2017 at 06:17
Well, If I said that, it would be I don’t want to. Can’t speak for you, though.
