You keep talking like that they will ban you - there are rules you know! I can't believe you said that! LOL.:rolleyes: Wait, I thought that was Mohican never mind, oh I see it now, that is very nice of you to say thank you! :). Is that the Southern tribe that speaks official Gobbeldegoop?
Gobbeldegoop is a well-respected language from where I come from - don't knock it 'till ya've tried it lol. Nothing wrong with a touch of southern influences hahahahhahahahahahha :D

I just finished caulking something along the floor... My back is way too old for this stuff!! :mad: (my belly's a bit big for it too :rolleyes:)
I'm feeling it too, in my back, neck and knees. I'm not getting any younger but you still have a long ways to go to reach my stage of decline. Such is life but it's not all bad because I have a wife who loves me for who I am. She makes me feel young again in certain ways.

Good nite tourist. I am still laughing about Gilligan's Island. They don't make 'em like that anymore. Sleep tight, I'll probably last a couple more hours then I'll be retiring also.

All of the good TV programs happened when we were much younger including the Saturday morning cartoons.

Cancel that cherry pie. I just had a piece of sweet potato pie and a cuppa, which I am still sipping. The sweet potato pie doesn't bother my stomach like pumkin pie does. It must be the spices in the pumpkin.

This sure looks good!
Yes it does. I have a sweet tooth for sure.

Yummy Deade - I'm with you on that! I am quite partial to cheese cake too - with a preference for the ricotta variety - way lighter therefore it's easier to consume more of it lol :D
I love cheese cake but I'm not to sure about the ricotta. I prefer pies made with Philadelphia cream cheese. I guess that this is the first time that we have disagreed on something but that's OK. I'm down with the easier to consume more of it though. On this we are on the same page. :)

I've come bearing gifts: Forget the Frankincense, and Myrrh lets do these this time instead for in it we can still honor Jesus (I pray):

What will you have? ...Cocunut Cream Pie with a touch of vanilla? Or, Greek Yogurt Cherry Crunch Pie? Or, Cocunut Cream Traditional? This is a Crossroads for us all!
I'm wondering about those green sprinkles on the first pie. It looks like it has reached its expiration date and beyond. Definitely could go for that coconut cream pie with the vanilla as it would be very easy to consume more of it. :)

This is a powerful passage. The God of the Bible is one of compassion. He comforts us when we go through trials. But it doesn’t stop there. Our troubles give us a vocabulary to help others who are going through the same thing! We may think that our circumstances make us unable to minister, but the Scripture tells us that the very weight around our neck can become the launching pad for ministry to others. Where others see failure and struggle, God sees the qualifications to be used mightily. No wonder the apostle Paul went into praise!
You are quite right on this. It is hard to minister to others if you don't have an understanding on the pain that they are going through. This is what empathy is. As far as the vocabulary is concerned I also agree because through perseverance, and the grace of God, the Holy Spirit will increase the words in our lexicon. Actually, I have learned a few things from your posts and believe you to be a spiritual man of the Lord.

Here let me pray first to ascertain the Father's will in this lol :D
You might want to give that pie with the mold on it a pass. Feel free to consume more of the other pies though. God told me to tell you this stuff. He's a funny and amusing fellow. The Father is trending towards the coconut cream pie with vanilla. Vanilla was one of his better inventions. Same for the coconut.

Can I have them all. I promise I won't gulp and make myself sick. HAHa... Man, I am charged up reviewing my book. I am posting like crazy in the BDF and the PR forum. Pray I don't get kicked off the latter, I may have been a little bold there.

This looks yummy!
Boston cream pie is a good thing especially the creamy filling that's oozing out.

Good portion of the bible there.
Most often, we go through situations as such just to be used by God to comfort others as we know what it feels going through same situation, having been there ourselves. Jesus took our iniquities and carried our sorrows.
He went through suffering and pain so as to feel it when we are in pains.
It would be very difficult at times to assist/comfort someone if u don't feel their pains, when u have no idea of how it feels about what they are going through. We get to comfort others with the same comfort we ourselves wre comforted - you feel it as if it were happening to you. You take it person
Jesus wept so He knows full well the pain and suffering that happens down here and it breaks His heart.
