But hey, while you're here, enjoy some recent Blogdrive entries:
I just don't understand how parents can treat their own kids so coldly. Again issues with my in laws and I guess I just need to stop worrying about it and getting worked up because they won't change. We borrowed money from them, because we needed help, they say they are always there to help and support us, yet as soon as we get money they want it back right away. The tone changes and its more like a business transaction.
I come from a very loving, supportive, understanding family. We help each other any way we can, and don't expect anything in return. My parents struggled a lot when we were younger, and my grandparents always helped they never held it over their heads in anyway. But his parents do that, and I just don't get it.
I can't relate to them on any level, they are old school and think they are right always. Or play the victims. I am just over it, completely over it. And they asked for money when we sale the house because they've helped us out. Sorry but that's not... (more)
preacher314 the pope
I have to honestly say that the gospel was proclaimed last
week by Pope Francis much more clearly than it usually is
in most U.S. churches, including his own Catholic church,
the evangelical church I grew up in, and in most of the
congregations Americans attend each week. The gospel we
heard last week was clearly one that could and should
transform a culture, rather than the services and sermons
we hear week after week that are so conformed to the culture.
Pope Francis proclaimed the gospel to me again and again,
all in ways that were confronting, humbling, and renewing.
Hearing the gospel preached every day with such eloquence
and power â€” while seeing it lived with such authenticity and
integrity â€” showed me how far I fall short of the things I most
dearly and deeply believe.
It often drew me to the prayer: â€śLord, have mercy on me, a
sinner.â€ť The greatest blessing of the week was how mercy
was at the core of Pope Francisâ€™ message to... (more)

Message Title: Living By Faith
Hello My Friend,
Faith, complete and utter belief in something or someone, those who believe in and have accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour completely and utterly believe that they will live eternally with Jesus. We have great faith in Jesus being our Saviour, yet if we truly think about it we have little faith in Him being our physician, our comforter, our strength, or our provider. The key to seeing God do anything great in our lives is faith, without faith we are wasting our breath and words. â€śBut without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.â€ť - Hebrews 11:6.
While Jesus came here through the Jews, He wasn't the most popular person, in fact,... (more)

GBFY198SLJournal Office for the Aging Week #1
When I went to the Office for the Aging for the first time it was pretty great. I hadn't visited the elderly in a while and when I used to go I would normally go with my mom, sister, or friend so this time was a little bit out of my comfort zone because I went alone, which is great! I went pretty early in the morning after my 8am so not many people were out in the lobby when I walked in. I went and sat with one woman, Myrtle. She was sitting at a table alone with her coffee and so I asked to sit with her. She was very pleasant and open with me. I tried to draw her out with simple questions like where she's from and about her family and hobbies. She wasn't talkative but she wasn't rude at all and seemed like she enjoyed answering my questions. Soon after another woman came down and sat with us. I believe her name was Kathryn. She was extremely friendly and talkative and seemed like she enjoyed recounting the memories of her childhood. She told me all about her siblings who were still... (more)
