When you clean the floor, and it looks clean - then you put away the broom/vacuum and turn around... and suddenly you see all these bits of dirt or stuff that were apparently invisible while you were holding the vacuum

Hezekiah 4v3

KJV: "Thou Shalt Not Profane"

ESV: "You Must Not Swear"

Passion: "Don't swear, for your beloved adores you and desires that you speak words of life that shine his love into the world..."

Above all things we need the personal touch,
Conversing face to face or by the net.
We know not if the other is suffering much β€”
We deal with people β€” how easy to forget!

How do you juggle the desire to get lost in a terminal and twelve hours later look up.... with the constant need to put on another load of washing, feed small people every two hours, read picture books ad nauseam, and clean the floor (again) ??

Any hints much appreciated

I can see what's happening and i think i see what we need... but i don't have the skills or uninterrupted time to write it myself πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ ughh.

Bible, nudity 

What are some things you wish others would do for you?

For each of those things, could you do that for someone else? Who do you know that might be encouraged or appreciate it?

Aspie girls, where are you... surely I'm not the only girl on the fediverse.

How good would it be if you could buy a box of these in the freezer at the supermarket... instead of frozen sugar+flavour or processed sugar+milk

(At home, you can make them yourself, but out camping or on a roadtrip home - when we normally buy icypoles - I wish these were a choice!)

I have a series of questions that I ask myself often, to stir me up in my walk with our Creator. I'm going to post some of them over December (followers-only). I hope they stir up others to love and good deeds also.

Is being acquaintance-zoned a thing?

"Ahh, election season, the time of year where everyone with a social media account suddenly becomes an expert on politics.
And how fortunate we are that they all share their well researched opinions unprompted and on full blast constantly.
Social media, the place where nuanced discourse goes to die a horrible death. And I'm here to help desecrate it's grave!"

#GospelToday (Mt 25:31-46)
"When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit upon his glorious throne, and all the nations will be assembled before him. And he will separate them one from another, as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. He will place the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.

Then the king will say to those on his right, 'Come, you who are blessed by my Father. Inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me.'

Then the righteous will answer him and say, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? When did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? When did we see you ill or in prison, and visit you?'

And the king will say to them in reply, 'Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.'

Then he will say to those on his left, 'Depart from me, you accursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. For I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me no drink, a stranger and you gave me no welcome, naked and you gave me no clothing, ill and in prison, and you did not care for me.'

Then they will answer and say, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or ill or in prison, and not minister to your needs?'

He will answer them, 'Amen, I say to you, what you did not do for one of these least ones, you did not do for me.' And these will go off to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life."

"On the internet, you can often find VPN services that claim that their services provide complete anonymity, foolproof security, bypass all censorship, bulletproof streaming, etc.

However, the technical limitations of VPN are quite clear and well defined by the technology.

Simply put, any provider that claims otherwise is either lying, or worse, does not fully understand the threats."

Just scrolled Facebook for a bit... it took 44 posts before I saw a single one that was an actual original comment/photo from a person that i know. FOURTY FOUR.

As far as "I use Facebook to keep up with my friends", I think that's well and truly reached "not fit for purpose" territory

Our lemon tree is very productive, and the blossoms have a beautiful smell to them. If I could post the smell of what they're like when they are open, I would - it's amazing ❀️

As a techie, if I hear one more person talk about getting a "download" from God, I think I'm going to scream.

Downloads aren't "mysterious", they're a predictable sequence initiated by an end-user when you ask for a specific piece of info/file and get exactly what you asked for, when you ask for it.

For the love of truth, the word you want is "revelation". God reveals truth to us, truths He wants to reveal to us (not what we demand). He does this in His time, while we abide and wait on Him.
