Proverbs 15:15

>Life is always hard for the poor, but the right attitude can turn it into a party.

On the List of countries by natural disaster risk the Philippines ranks 169 out of 172.

You would think that Bangladesh would be worse, but it is 167:

Situated on the "ring of fire" (earhquakes, volcanos), with numerous typhoons, landslides and flooding, you would think that Filipinos are miserable people.

Not so! Fiesta time!

Filipinos are world renowned for the smiles on their faces. Just go to Hong Kong, and you will quickly spot them among all the frowning busy people. And believe me, it is not because they are paid lots of money to work there!

They love to sing (karaoke), dance, and most importantly - eat together with friends and family.

And the poor are smiling :)

Proverbs 13:7

>Some people pretend they are rich, but they have nothing. Others pretend they are poor, but they are really rich.

As a retired American expat living in the Philippines it doesn't matter if you don't have a car, and the 60 square meter lot your house is on belongs to another - you are RICH!

All Americans are rich compared to most people in my area who make an average of $5 a day. My brother in law up the road makes $6 per day toiling in hot sun or rain as a laborer in the field. He used to make $7, but because of COVID - a "haircut."

Pretending to be poor doesn't work unless you are a Filipino. The ex mayor drives a motorcycle. LOL!

Many here in the big cities drive nice cars and sip expensive coffee at Starbucks, but have nothing. The banks own it, or OFW family send remittances to finance their lifestyle.

Be grateful for what you have. It could soon be taken away.

Corinthians 13:4-7

4. Love is patient. Love is kind. Love isn't jealous. It doesn't sing its own praises. It isn't arrogant.

5. It isn't rude. It doesn't think about itself. It isn't irritable. It doesn't keep track of wrongs.

6. It isn't happy when injustice is done, but it is happy with the truth.

7. Love never stops being patient, never stops believing, never stops hoping, never gives up.

Like for your sushi and miso soup?

Romans 13:9-10

9. The commandments, "Never commit adultery; never murder; never steal; never have wrong desires," and every other commandment are summed up in this statement: "Love your neighbor as you love yourself."

If Google does not want to listen to my explanations, I will not change the app for them.
The way they are acting is unfair and don't give any trust concerning next publications.
I prefer to spend my time to help people to switch on #FDroid for getting the app.


Robert Smith's Vision Of Hell

These days, most people do not spend much time thinking about what will happen after they die. But they should. The Bible has an enormous amount to say about what will happen to us after this life ends, and all over the world people have been having supernatural experiences in which they have been shown …

Psalm 121 Song (NKJV) "I Will Lift Up My Eyes to the Hills" (Esther Mui)

Psalms 121:1-4

I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.

My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.

He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber. Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.

Day 26 of our NK prayer guide! 🙏🏼🌍

Getting the Word of God into closed nations is a priority for BTJ. That's why the hologram Bible was invented.

It is the size of a small pill and, when activated, it illuminates the air in front of your face and creates a hologram that allows the user to read the entire Bible from Genesis to Revelation 🙌🏼

Read about it here, in day 26:

Psalms 119

129. Thy testimonies are wonderful: therefore doth my soul keep them.
130. The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.
131. I opened my mouth, and panted: for I longed for thy commandments.
132. Look thou upon me, and be merciful unto me, as thou usest to do unto those that love thy name.
133. Order my steps in thy word: and let not any iniquity have dominion over me. 134. Deliver me from the oppression of man: so will I keep thy precepts.
135. Make thy face to shine upon thy servant; and teach me thy statutes.
136. Rivers of waters run down mine eyes, because they keep not thy law.

The future of Windows everyone, yes It's not fully locked down yet but It's only a matter of time. They only let you Install Windows without an account If you physically disconnect your internet cable and click 'I have no Internet'.

They'll require you to have an account with the Microsoft Store and kill off .exe's completely, Steam saw this from a mile away with Windows 8 which Is why they've been heavily supportive of Linux. Get ready for a walled garden that's a privacy nightmare.
