that waketh the souls which slumbers here
that maketh their soft petal'd lips to part and moan
to recite their morning psalms
and stretch their stringy bones
(as they are leaves and their bodies made of stems)
Thine eyes are the most radiant most deepest I've seen
that maketh the roses and freshest mowed lawns of the earth
to seem so mild
Thou art the music, the song in my soul
Thine breath is the fragrance of the sweetest of wine
which gives life to all even the most palest and dying kind
what glorious praise can my soul and spirit muster
to the Lord of all creation, my husband and master?
Thou art the rhymes of every sung song
which all turn dull whenever Your voice takes wing
Thou art the reason why I do sing
Thou art the reason my spirit has wings
Jesus O God
What can I truly give
to the Lord who has given me life through His death
on the rood?
Thou art my supplication
Thou art my good
Thou art my Savior, good Shepherd and compani
Atheist With Another Name 2Atheist: You said "One would have to have an ultimate and transcendent standard of good in order to define evil." No. We wouldn't. Good and evil are concepts that appeal to our human nature. This is why there's often debate over what's good and what's bad.More Like This
Christian: Okay, you sound just like the other weirdoes.

Hobby Lobby: (Some) Issues at HandMore Like This
The popularized conception of the Hobby Lobby case is that it's about contraception and, to a lesser extent, how big corporations are oppressing our women/pushing their antiquated beliefs on them. I hope to reflect a bit on the first and indirectly about the second.
There is a difference between medicines which are contraceptive as a side effect and those things which are contraceptive as for the sake of a lifestyle or sexual choice. Childbirth, and impregnation, are results of sex and thus natural, i.e., part of the natural process and natural conclusion of a natural act. Those things which impede the natural process as a side effect for the sake of a medical benefit are not the issue. Despite moral objections others or I may have to the actual reason for their use we cannot assume in any way that their use is intended for a moral evil. There do exist alternatives, of course, but at that point we can only suggest them.
One issue emerges, however, from paying for contraception not as a
Do Not Call Yourselves ChristiansWhen we look at gay marriage, we cringe in disgust,More Like This
the Bible has taught us that it's wrong...that it's a sin.
And if it truly is a sin, like we believe,
than why do we treat same sex-couples so...horrendously ?
We often say “hate the sin, love the sinner”,
but I think we go about the wrong way of doing that.
The bible tells us to love our enemies, but I think
we tend to disregard the fact.
If you steal from me, and I steal from you, then we're both sinners,
but we forgive and forget, and transform into winners.
Why can't we do the same for the man who marries his husband,
or the woman who ends the life of her unborn child?
We often say, “Hate the sin, and love the sinner”
But I think what you mean is, “Hate the sin, and hate the sinner.”
But according to your logic, we should be hating one another.
When did the bible become a pick-and-chose deal?
You say the Old Testament, but Jesus came and changed,
what that was about, and retaught us how to behav

Every night you're in my dreams
I hold you in my arms or you dance with me
Then I wake up and see reality
how you no longer talk to me
My world shatters as I open my eyes
I start to remember I start to cry
I remember how we used to be friends
the perfect world we would play in
I remember the day we first met
how I didn't know I love you yet
I remember your ex-boyfriend
how he betrayed you in the end
I remember how he made you cry
and how it brought tears to my eyes
I remember the time during twilight
what started as a joke changed the night
my greatest hope had now come true
you had feelings for me like I have for you
I remember late nights when I was still up
trying to keep my thoughts all pent up
but my inner feelings would always break through
and I had to tell you "I love you"
I remember when it all want bad
the worst night that I ever had
I read those words and my heart sank
"don't text me again ever please. Thanks"
I remember that night I didn
InspirationRemember that when you're all alone and all hope seems gone, when that moment comes where you want to break, I want you to remember that life goes on but you chose how. That you have a choice...chose to live life. Dreams will never come true by themselves, they also wont surface without ambition and passion. Understand that after you've been depressed, you will appreciatte true happiness so much more and you'll know not to throw it away. The world is a wonderful place, but the people on it are selfish and simple minded.More Like This
So know like always you have a choice. Do you lift yourself up and do somethng, or do you end up looking like the rest? I believe that things are what you make of them. A pile of wood can easily be crushed and burned. But with passion and ambition you can build a sculpture that will amaze the world. It can still easily be burnt, but its your job to protect it. This is life, and you only have a certain amount of time to live it. Every second that passes is a chance to ma
Abortion ~Hi, Mommy. I'm your baby. You don't know me yet, I'm only a few weeks old. You're going to find out about me soon, though, I promise. Let me tell you some things about me. My name is John, and I've got beautiful brown eyes and black hair. Well, I don't have it yet, but I will when I'm born. I'm going to be your only child, and you'll call me your one and only. I'm going to grow up without a daddy mostly, but we have each other. We'll help each other, and love each other. I want to be a doctor when I grow up.More Like This
You found out about me today, Mommy! You were so excited, you couldn't wait to tell everyone. All you could do all day was smile, and life was perfect. You have a beautiful smile, Mommy. It will be the first face I will see in my life, and it will be the best thing I see in my life. I know it already.
Today was the day you told Daddy. You were so excited to tell him about me! ...He wasn't hap
