KC of D. Dishonest beta male! Why are you grinning like your mama! He tries to compare using the term radical homosexual to fake idea of racism. Go and forgive. Read From Rage to Responsibility. Back to KC grinning too much. Jesse mimics him. Harrison of somewhere says Larry Elder should set up a YouTube channel. She talks about the Kavanaugh accuser from 37 years ago. When something happens, they're angry, hate their fathers and all men. She mentions girls "giving it up" on Tinder, etc.
She talks about selfish parents. Fred of Maricopa, AZ, calls in at the tail. He needs to become the head! Democratic representatives are evil. Anita Hill wrote an op-ed piece. They hate God, men, and children — they brainwash children. You know exactly where he's coming form. Not like lying Barack Hussein Obama. Dianne Feinstein talked with Kavanaugh a long time! Dems obstruct and resist. Trump speaks with love, logic and calm. Matthew of South Korea thanks Jesse for teaching him the evil of anger. Have you gone and forgiven your parents yet?
My mother was abusive. Parents split up as a baby. Father was Christian. Mother remarried multiple times, crazy. In early s he told her he forgave her, but she couldn't accept it. She later committed suicide when he was back in South Korea. Jesse holds him to 2nd hour. He was intellectual so he questioned Christianity. He sees overlap with the Silent Prayer and some Buddhism. He sees evil, saying we're in an apocalypse. Jesse says even friends and family can't deceive you.
Matthew says Jesse brought the message without fear that anger is of the Devil. Jesse: I had fear when I had anger. Matthew: In Korea the children of the lie are bringing that into the country. I was angry and went to jail. Jesse: Do my Silent Prayer. You're awake. You want God's mind.
He sent Jesse a shirt! He got discouraged, angry, asked God why have you forsaken me? Why can't I feel you like I used to? Jesse's teaching on forgiveness, everything just clicked. He jumped on it, forgiving both his parents. Now he's 30, was married, marriage fell apart, divorce, has a 6yo son in Delaware.
He wants to transfer there to be in his life. His ex-wife jumped into another relationship immediately. He got fed up and left. No such thing as "deadbeat dads. She sees that and respects it. Fathers are the light of the family. When turned away from the children or leave home, the light goes out. Now he's connected to God again, with peace. Silent Prayer: Amazin'!

Observe them. It's spiritual. He asks about speaking words. He thinks we have a choice to forgive our parents. He asks if his spoken words are from God, because he doesn't think anymore. Mama mia! Si senor. Back to Brody of OK: Don't go with those thoughts from your father the devil. Can I trust you? He talks more. Do you smoke pot?
I'm losing the appetite. I have a fiancee not wife! He's coming down off a high from today! Don't smoke the pot that comes from the children of the lie. They want you high! Jesse wants a better conversation with him when he hasn't smoked! Blacks capitalize on chaos. They threaten to shoot reporters! Facebook message: Man asks why Jesse calls blacks "them" and not "we" or "us" — I ain't a part of that mess! I'm not into stealing or hurting people or blackness.
Ryan of Toronto, Canada, asks about talking with people at work, etc. He says liking Trump doesn't fly in Toronto. Call BOND to order. You were not created on earth to have a miserable life, so that God could create love through you, not so Satan could create hatred through you. Back to Ryan of Toronto: He worked at an art studio, and they're liberal or something. Jesse responds to Mike Young Super Chat yesterday: "I have a speech problems due to seizures can it be cured?
I'm trying to get better. MAGA" … He stuttered on the call yesterday. Jesse was hard to understand when he started speaking. Now the children of the lie push sex on TV!

And Jesus died to live again so praise the love that, come what may, can bring the dawn and clear the skies, and waits to wipe all tears away and let us hope for what shall be believing where we cannot see. Then spread the table, clear the hall and celebrate till day is done; let peace go deep between us all and joy be shared by everyone: laugh and make merry with your friends and praise the love that never ends!

God, in the planning and purpose of life, hallowed the union of husband and wife: this we embody where love is displayed, rings are presented and promises made. Jesus was found, at a similar feast, taking the roles of both waiter and priest, turning the worldly towards the divine, tears into laughter and water to wine. Praise then the Maker, the Spirit, the Son, source of the love through which two are made one.

It could pay for the help couples need when their marriage is ailing or has crashed - pay for a Marriage Hospital. Judy Parejko, DivorceResourceCenter. It's true that all restraints are in a sense cruel, but without the sturdy fence, the bawling cattle in the pasture would be destroying themselves in the green corn and damp alfalfa. And so it is with the restraints on divorce.

These marriages appear to be functioning well only a year or so prior to the divorce. From a child's perspective, these divorce are unexpected, inexplicable, and unwelcome and are thus most likely to harm children. These marriages are significantly more likely to divorce because of infidelity, citing explanations of "drifting apart" or "communication problems".
They are unlikely to mention abuse because these were not highly conflicted marriages. Most unmarried parents do not live together and most nonresident fathers pay little child support. Women are providing a much higher proportion of the financial support of children than previously. Thus, in the new low-marriage regime, compared to the old regime, women are still providing most of the labor inputs to children and are providing much more of the financial support for children.
If your goal is to help improve the world, marriage is as good a place as any to start. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success. Somebody asked her, what was our secret? I figured I could live with at least ten! Can there be anything more beautiful than young love? It is the spectacle of an old man and an old woman finishing their journey together on that path.
Their hands are gnarled, but still clasped; their faces are seamed, but still radiant; their hearts are physically bowed and tired, but still strong with love and devotion for one another. Yes, there is a more beautiful thing than young love. Old love. When all the world is young, lad, And all the trees are green; And every goose a swan, lad, And every lass a queen; Then hey for boot and horse, lad, And round the world away; Young blood must have its course, lad, And every dog his day. When all the world is old, lad, And all the trees are brown; And all the sport is stale, lad, And all the wheels run down; Creep home, and take your place there, The spent and maimed among: God grant you find one face there, You loved when all was young.
Having someone wonder where you are when you don't come home at night is a very old human need. There's a knowledge, knowing that you can hug somebody without them throwing you downstairs and saying, 'Get your hands off me. You never want to go back to black and white. Every night the husband consumed a generous portion of the same menu offering. Breaded veal cutlets as I recall. Every night over the course of four decades, the husband devoured the cutlets, wiped his face with a napkin, pushed his chair away from the table and looked his wife in the eye.
He smiled at her and spoke in a tender voice, "That's the best you've ever done. But, surprisingly, low cholesterol levels did not. Everything else in marriage is transitory. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time. You win or the relationship wins. But it's my wedding ring that I'm most proud of. And having a good marriage takes even more work than winning a Super Bowl. The launching of a marriage is light years different than launching a cohabitation.
Bill Doherty, DrBillDoherty. If you want kids to do well, then you want marriage to do well. In short, we're focusing on the wrong risks. We started asking young couples at our clinic, "Who's marriage would you like yours to be like? The same applies for an unkind act, but your partner is likely to react as if you had acted unkindly towards them your partner five times. Love me now While I am living. Do not wait until I'm gone And then have it chiseled in marble, Sweet words on ice-cold stone.
If you have tender thoughts of me, Please tell me now. We would sit down and think which way To walk, and pass our long love's day;. An hundred years should go to praise Thine eyes, and on thy forehead gaze; Two hundred to adore each breast, But thirty thousand to the rest; An age at least to every part, And the last age should show your heart. For, lady, you deserve this state, Nor would I love at lower rate. The grave's a fine and private place, But none I think do there embrace. Now let us sport us while we may; And now, like am'rous birds of prey,.
Let us roll all our strength, and all Our sweetness, up into one ball; And tear our pleasures with rough strife Thorough the iron gates of life. Thus, though we cannot make our sun Stand still, yet we will make him run. May I have this dance with you? Through the good times And the bad times, too. Let it be a dance. Learn to follow, learn to lead, Feel the rhythm, fill the need. To reap the harvest, plant the seed. And let it be a dance. Morning star comes out at night, Without the dark there is no light. If nothing's wrong, then nothing's right.
He married her because she was so "fragile and cute. She married him because "he is a good provider. He married her because "she reminds me of my mother. She married him because he was "happy and romantic. He married her because she was "steady and sensible. She married him because he was "the life of the party. This policy helps men take their wives' feelings into account whenever they make a decision - avoid thoughtless habits, learn to meet emotional needs with mutual enjoyment and resolve conflicts.
This creates marital compatibility and emotional bonding. Whenever he follows it, he learns to think about his wife's reaction to everything he does. Some argue that just an agreement would be a big help, why insist on enthusiastic agreement? It's because couples need to avoid agreements that are coerced or self-sacrificing.
Couples need to learn how to come to agreements that take both of their interests into account at once. I have encouraged couples to continue to negotiate until they arrive at an enthusiastic agreement because they're the ones that stand the test of time. Joint agreement means that both must be enthusiastic together, and no one risks losing their identity or subjecting themselves to slavery or control when they themselves must be enthusiastic about each decision.

The goal is to become united in purpose and spirit, not to overpower or control each other. Think of it as creating a mutually enjoyable lifestyle. Willard Harley, MarriageBuilders. An old man got on a bus one February 14th, carrying a dozen roses. He sat beside a young man. The young man looked at the roses and said, "Somebody's going to get a beautiful Valentine's Day gift.
A few minutes went by and the old man noticed that his young companion was staring at the roses. They rode in silence for another 10 minutes, and then the old man got up to get off the bus. As he stepped out into the aisle, he suddenly placed the roses on the young man's lap and said, "I think my wife would want you to have these.
I'll tell her that I gave them to you. He left the bus quickly. As the bus pulled away, the young man turned to see the old man enter the gates of a cemetery. My wife is messy - never picks anything up. Doesn't even notice the mess - it's below her radar. I cured myself from my annoyance with her by imagining that she had died and then asking myself, "If you could bring her back to life but she'd still be messy, leave clutter all over the house - 5 pairs of shoes in the living room, would you still want her back? Whenever I get annoyed with her mess, I rerun the script. Writers say that love is concerned only with young people, and the excitement and glamour of romance end at the altar.
How blind they are. The best romance is inside marriage; the finest love stories come after the wedding, not before. Irving Stone. The first day is really hard and the next day is less hard and so forth, easier and easier the longer you go on. The RealAge web site recommends finding a "reminder buddy" to improve your health, one with whom to exercise, eat right, etc. The islanders all spoke highly of this man, but when it came time for him to find a wife the people shook their heads in disbelief.
In order to obtain a wife you paid for her by giving her father cows. Four to six cows was considered a high price. But the woman Johnny Lingo chose was plain, skinny and walked with her shoulders hunched and her head down. She was very hesitant and shy. What surprised everyone was Johnny's offer -- he gave eight cows for her! Everyone chuckled about it, since they believed his father-in-law put one over on him. Several months after the wedding, a visitor from the U.
Upon meeting Johnny and his wife the visitor was totally taken back, since this wasn't a shy, plain and hesitant woman but one who was beautiful, poised and confident. The visitor asked about the transformation, and Johnny Lingo's response was very simple. She discovered she was worth more than any other woman in the islands.
And what matters most is what a woman thinks about herself. It is no disparagement to a garden to say that it will not fence and weed itself, nor prune its own fruit trees, nor roll and cut its own lawns. A garden is a good thing but that is not the sort of goodness it has. It will remain a garden, as distinct from a wilderness, only if someone does all these things to it.
I've learned - that there are people who love you dearly, but just don't know how to show it. I've learned - that just because someone doesn't love you the way you want them to, doesn't mean they don't love you all they can. I've learned - that we don't have to change friends if we understand that friends change.
I've learned - that two people can look at the exact same thing and see something totally different. I've learned - that just because two people argue, it doesn't mean they don't love each other. And just because they don't argue, it doesn't mean they do. Let me count the ways. I love thee to the depth and breadth and height My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.
Several decades ago there was a problem with overpopulation on an African game preserve - too many elephants. Limited by the technology available at the time, the solution arrived at was to move the babies to new preserves. Everyone watched, gravely concerned, but the babies thrived. However, unintended consequences emerged. At the new locations, a decade or so after the transfer, someone was killing off rhinoceros which are an endangered species.
It turned out the killers were young male elephants. At first the game wardens couldn't believe it, this was uncharacteristic behavior never before seen in elephants. They deduced that the young males had grown up without fathers - without male role models. New technology had made it possible to transport into these locations some large mature bull elephants. There was concern that it would be too late, that the adolescent males had to have grown up with their elders, that bringing "daddies" in now would do no good.
But they tried it anyway. It worked like a charm. The mature bulls arrived and set things straight. The young males immediately stopped their precocious, rampant sexuality, killing and violence. The conclusion drawn on 60 Minutes was that we had no idea that the social system of the elephants was so complex, interconnected, and so elegant.
And so it goes.
Daddies do matter, even in elephants. While developing our intervention for domestic violence, we took a group of young men mean age 22 , all of whom had at least two children from previous relationships and who were court-ordered for abuse of their current partners. As is too often the case with young fathers, none of these guys had a relationship with his children. We gave them a brief course called Compassionate Parenting which raised their awareness of the emotional worlds of their children, particularly their need to have fathers who cared about them and looked out for them.
Without direct intervention for domestic violence, these young men got more involved in the lives of their children and completely stopped abuse of their current partners. The normal recidivism rate for unmarried men of this age group was over 60 percent, after domestic violence intervention. Compassionate Parenting is now a crucial part of our domestic violence programs. People feel disconnected.
A healthy marriage to the mother of one's children has a way of making sure a father is in the location where his kids desperately need him most - in their home. Roland Warren, National Fatherhood Initiative fatherhood. This is what she came up with. I thought it was touching. I just wanted you to see it. He usually got home from work around 3 PM, and he usually made dinner for the family.
I don't get home until around 5 PM. He did all the yard work, took care of all car maintenance, always called me if he was going to be late, instilled complete trust, did the lion's share of bill paying because I hate to write due to carpal tunnel syndrome, balanced the checkbook, fixed the toilet when it would break regularly , painted the outside of the house. He usually remembered to put the toilet seat and lid down. He vacuumed occasionally. He spent lots of time with the kids.
He bought advent calendars with chocolate behind each day for the kids every Christmas season. He laughed and joked a lot, and didn't like to be serious. He told me when I looked good. He learned to enjoy horses because our girls and I loved to ride. He was willing to try new dishes I prepared. He loved my lasagna. He went to church with the family every Sunday, even though he had trouble staying awake during preaching. Although he doesn't like classical music, he went to almost every concert our daughters played in when they were in youth symphony 4 years for one and 6 years for the other.
He held my hand through 3 labors and deliveries, and whispered in my ear to encourage me. He lovingly dressed an open wound for me after surgery for a breast abscess after the birth of our 3rd. Four years later, he stood beside my bed as I was being wheeled to surgery to remove a breast due to cancer, and tears filled his eyes as they did mine. That was in He walked the floor for hours at night with a sleepless, cranky child. He spooned cereal and baby food into little mouths, and endured spit-up and baby poop on his clothing. He helped me take care of my mother as she was dying of cancer.
Is this what you mean, JJ? It was difficult to get started, but look what I accomplished! I also have a huge lump in my throat and tears in my eyes right now. He was a fantastic husband! My sister told me he "adored" me, and I guess that's correct for a lot of the 26 years we have been married. That meant fixing my car or truck, checking tires, changing oil, filling it with gas, etc. Also making sure that the house was safe as well and fixing things there. Perhaps the most unfortunate, damaging phrase ever to catch hold regarding women and children's well being is Gloria Steinem's "A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle.
We need desperately to correct that. We need to say "I want you and I need you here by my side raising these kids. Get off the damn bike and stay right here. Even before he was old enough to walk, his father, Willie Sr. When dad stopped, Willie cried. Dads, the best way to raise champion children is to take the time to play with them. Researchers have found a strong correlation between fathers and children having fun together and their overall well-being. Play is serious business.
We realize that we enjoy working together so much that it feels like play. We've taken to calling it Plurk. Commenting on paternity establishment programs: What these millions of children want and need is not a name on a form or a promise that the sheriff will arrest these guys if they don't pay child support. What they want and need is in-the-home, love-the-mother fathers,. Well, try growing up without one.
That's how it will be, except that in reality, both today and later, one will stand there with a palpable body and a real head, a real forehead, that is, for smiting on with one's hand. You shall be together when the white wings of death scatter your days. Ay, you shall be together even in the silent memory of God. But let there be spaces in your togetherness, And let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another, but make not a bond of love: Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls. Fill each other's cup but drink not from one cup.
Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone, Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music. Give your hearts, but not into each other's keeping. For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts.
And stand together yet not too near together: For the pillars of the temple stand apart, And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other's shadow. They should have a Defense of Voting Act. But in my whole life, I haven't met the person I can sustain a relationship with yet. So I'm discontented about that. I'm angry with myself. I have regrets. I want what everybody else wants: to love and to be loved, and to have a family.
So my grandfather does it for her all the time, even when his hands got arthritis too. That's love. When John and I eat chips together, he never says a word. He just smiles and hands the folded chips from his bag to me as he comes to them. Each one of those potato chips is a love note to me. Using his Daytimer, he marks off in seven-day increments the dates of different stages in my cycle.

The partnership between John Adams and his wife, Abigail, well known for speaking out on women's rights, is one of the most famous in American history. While drawn to each other as "steel and the magnet," they also went through the trials of extended separation of as much as nearly 5 years at a time, political upheavals, and personal tragedies.
During their extensive separations, they relied on letters to keep the bond of their compelling and equal partnership and marriage alive. Love Magazine www. A Father who was happier getting old shoes fixed than buying new ones. Their marriage was good, their dreams focused. I can see them now, Dad in trousers, tee shirt and a hat and Mom in a house dress, lawn mower in one hand, dishtowel in the other.
It was the time for fixing things - a curtain rod, the kitchen radio, screen door, the oven door, the hem in a dress. Things we keep. It was a way of life, and sometimes it made me crazy. All that re-fixing, reheating, renewing, I wanted just once to be wasteful. Waste meant affluence. Throwing things away meant there'd always be more. But then my Mother died, and on that clear summer's night, in the warmth of the hospital room, I was struck with the pain of learning that sometimes there isn't any 'more'.

But to be married to a man who makes you laugh every day, ah, now that's a real treat. Her husband was a magistrate for the Massachusetts colony, and spent long periods away from home.

She copied by hand the huge manuscript for War and Peace four times. During the first years of his marriage, free love was becoming fashionable among the Russian upper classes, and everyone started to think of marriage as old fashioned and silly. Tolstoy was disgusted.
In , he heard about a woman who had thrown herself in front of a train after the end of an affair, and it gave him an idea for a novel about a woman whose life is destroyed by adultery.

When it was published, most critics said it was inferior to War and Peace , but it is now considered one of the greatest novels ever written.
