  1. the Inca

    From what I've read, the Inca were somewhat different than the Aztec/Mexica, Maya, etc. further north, yet somewhat similar too, in some ways.

    Like those other people, they weren't considered to be Hispanic/Latino, and didn't consider Spanish to be their language, and their religion was totally distinct from any form of Catholicism.

    From what I understand, the Inca area covered at least parts of what are now several countries in western South America, in the Andes Mountains. ...

  2. 27. Battle Stance

    I was led to go to church last week to pray upon the altar very early on a Friday morning. After I was done praying I was led through the Bible to read parts of Romans… Chapter 8 in its entirety and some verses from a few other chapters in Romans. Tonight I was led to read in 1 Peter chapter 5… in particular verses 9 and 10 which lets me know it’s time to post this blog. So last week on the 18th I wrote in my journal that morning of prayer my thoughts as they came. Bear with me as I type this up ...

  3. Lament

    Lament

    Friend,
    Lover,
    Companion,
    Partner in every sense of the word.
    My other half in ways no other could,
    Comforter.
    You held me as I cried when my dad died.
    Who will hold me now?
    Who’s shoulder will catch my tears?
    Who’s arms will wrap themselves around me?
    The pillow just doesn’t work.
    It’s not the same.
    I cry into it, and it catches the tears,
    But it only gets wet.

  4. Christmas Around the World




    Christmas Around the World

    In the Northern Hemisphere
    It gets cold this time of year,
    Frozen rivers stop their flow;
    The ground below covered with snow.

    Families gathered together
    Sheltered warmly from bad weather,
    Sharing a meal on Christmas Day
    Served in bone china from a tray.

    Drinking chocolate hot and steamy

  5. Don't quit!!!!!!!!!

    Don't quit!

    When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
    When the road you're trudging seems all up hill,
    When the funds are low and the debts are high,
    And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
    When care is pressing you down a bit,
    Rest! if you must; but don't you quit.

    Life is queer with its twists and turns,
    As everyone of us sometimes learns,
    And many a failure turns about
    When he might have won had he stuck it out;
