Narcissist Hell!

Before you read this I would like to admit I cried a few tears. I really didn't think I was so vulnerable to pain in others. I don't know this woman but I think I know someone like her to a degree. I hurt for this woman for reasons I won't go into but it truly hurts. There are so many others, men and women who have experienced this HELL that is described here. Please be careful with your life. The wrong choices can have devastating effects that may last your whole lifetime...

OK, I admit the duress I was under has been exchanged for peace most of the time.  There is a man in my life who is kind, loving and understanding. I shouldn't need to be with my narcissistic ex-husband, right? Unfortunately, that is not the case at times. Experiencing battered wife or battered husband syndrome does not go away the moment the abuser leaves, that's what I realized. What I didn't realize is that it actually takes years and I have kept this guy I love waiting for me to get be…

We Are All Big, Fat Liars.

According to the bookThe Day America Told the Truth, we are a nation of liars:

86% lie regularly to their parents.
75% lie to their friends.
73% lie to their siblings.
69% lie to their spouses.
43% lie about their jobs.

Yes, I am copying Pastor Ray Pritchard's blog, why? He tells the truth here. Just a few years ago I decided I would post and say what I believe even if it costs me my friends and readers. It is important to be up front with each other and I would rather people treat me the same way. Even little "white lies" are still lies and God abhors it. Even if you are angry about the title and what I wrote here at the top please read this:

We are all big, fat liars.

I ran across that statement in an article with a provocative title: 60% of People Can't Go 10 Minutes Without Lying. It begins this way:
“There are two things you can say for sure about human beings: our opposable thumbs make us grea…

What's In A Name-Does It Really Matter?

NATIVE American Indians were very specific about names. Sometimes a name may be derived from an event that happened at the time of birth, something they saw, or an event in one of the parents. Other cultures do something very similar. God's name is not only based on His power, His Authority, and His Omniscience but who He really is to all who call upon His name...

The Names of God and Why They Matter BY DAVID JEREMIAH Knowing God by His personal names is one of the greatest privileges for followers of Christ. The word God is found throughout the Bible, but the Lord reveals Himself more personally through the names with which He introduces Himself in Scripture. These names help us when we address Him in prayer. Just as we want to call people by the right term or name, so we want to address God with appropriate wisdom and reverence whenever we pray. I’ve put together a survey of some of the amazing names that tell us in personal terms who our God is and what He is like. These specia…

This Is No Time To Go Wobbly

From Dr. James Dobson:
I would like to tell you about an experience Shirley and I had while visiting the cultural centers of Europe about 20 years ago. One of the cities that we toured was Berlin, Germany. I have been fascinated since I was a child with World War II and what made the adults around me so fearful. I have wondered in the ensuing years how highly educated and intelligent Germans could have been so corrupted and deceived by the propaganda that lay the foundation for tyranny. It is still difficult to comprehend how so many Christian churches with their good people fell prey to the lies screamed by Adolf Hitler and his evil cohorts. Even before he revealed his murderous intentions, they stood with their arms and hands extended, cheering rabidly for a man who was to become one of the most ruthless dictators in world history.

I searched for an understanding of the processes that led to torchlight parades, book burning, racial hatred, mass killings of Jews, Gypsies, Poles, homose…
