3 Things About Yourself!
I’ve been to the Isle of Wight about 20 times.
I have never been to New York
I often sing Patsy Cline songs at the top of my voice.
My chosen post:
Last year, I thought I would try my hand a writing a story in the style of Agatha Christie, that brilliant crime writer of the 20th Century. Click on the link below to read my take on the Murder Mystery genre.
For those who try to be the bigger person. For those with the courage to speak truth while others ignore it and attacked for it. For those who are just big hearted and try to be there for everyone, even the undeserving. For those who finally realized that you can’t help some individuals as they want nothing more than to dim lights because theirs went out a long time ago. For those who finally realized that your peace is yours to protect by any means.
Never forget! What makes America great are it’s people. People did not hesitate to rush in to help others. On this day we saw the worst of some in regards to the destruction they brought down on us. But we also saw the best of many. Their best saved lives. Or at least showed those near the end that they weren’t alone. Someone came for them. Many of these heroes fell. Some lost their lives that day. Some suffered disease for years from the toxicity at ground zero. They gave their lives for others. Yes we saw the best of many. God bless the USA. ❤️🤍💙🇺🇸
Please pray for this family. They’ll be heading to SC to see what they can find out. The police are no help as Sean is homeless.
UPDATE ON Sean Garrett We finally spoke to the person who called here a few weeks ago from South Carolina but did not say anything. We have been calling this phone for weeks but no one would call us back until we dig up some information on this person and left a voicemail telling them we know where they work and some other things about them. The man phoned back and cussed us. He screamed and yelled for at least three minutes telling us he did not know ourf**king brother he is lying because we were able to find information that he was ones on Sean‘s Facebook but he is denying knowing Sean. This is turning into a nightmare. We finally have someone who is going to go on Saturday to a storage unit Sean kept his things in. We are praying to God that he’s not in that storage unit. I spoke again with a couple of people that were in contact with him in July and they said they have not seen or heard from him yet to this day. Everyone is now very worried because they know no matter what he would call and check on how my treatment is going. In July he was in a very depressed state because of some things that were going on down there that I was trying to help him get straightened out. That’s what scares me so badly is that he felt he had nothing left to do but to harm himself. Please God, don’t let that be.
Hopefully on Saturday we will have some answers. I will keep everyone updated on the situation. Please pray that he is ok. 😢￼￼￼￼￼
To answer everyone’s questions as to if I have called the police yes, I did weeks ago and because he’s homeless they would not do anything. Honestly what they told me that it’s not a crime if a person does Not want to contact their family. We tried to explain that this is not the case in this situation and they still would not do anything because he’s homeless and they said there was not a starting point for them. That was the first thing I did when we realized that he’s missing.
I’m scrolling past news. I’m tired of politics. I’m tired of violence. I’m tired of seeing people in pain. Just be a loving soul. Stand up for what you believe but understand that in regards to the media-the truth lies somewhere in the in between. Information can bring together or it can divide. I understand everyone won’t see eye to eye on many issues and that’s okay. That’s freedom. To be able to think for oneself is a God given right.
Just be a loving soul. There’s so much hate in the atmosphere, it’s choking us all. Take a step back. Don’t buy into the media’s propaganda. It’s become an us vs them feeding frenzy. There’s blood in the water and the sharks are circling.
Maybe the idealist in me is still alive? Maybe it is naive to think this way. All I know is we need to see more love. Show your beautiful soul each day. Don’t let this world diminish your light. Many blessings!
Tim Ballard is the founder/CEO of O.U.R. Which rescues and rehabilitates children that have been trafficked. The Sound of Freedom, an upcoming featured film is about his life.
Tim’s team came across an illegal orphanage which was selling children at 15,000 each. The orphanage was shut down thanks to Tim and his team. All the children were placed in a reputable orphanage in Haiti. But Tim could not get a brother and sister off of his mind. While undercover, Tim purchased the siblings in the sting operation.
Ages 2 and 3, Colin and Coline. Tim and his wife made the decision to adopt both children. Adding to their large family. It took several years to get through all the red tape. Finally, after four years in 2018, the Ballard’s were told they could pick up their children.
It’s a pretty amazing story. Who knows where these two kids would have ended up if this man and his team had not infiltrated the “orphanage”. Yes, a happy ending for two beautiful children. Let’s continue to educate the world on trafficking. So that Tim and others like him can continue to shut traffickers down and give the world’s children a chance to know what peace and unconditional love really is.
What if it was your child? What if someone came in the night and stole your child? What would you do?
These victims are our children. So many parents out there are walking into an empty bedroom. They can’t tuck their child in anymore.
Modern day slavery. Yes, it exists. Human trafficking, yes it exists. We can no longer turn away and act like this is not happening.
The United States is the #1 reason human trafficking is so profitable. The pornography is no longer quenching the thirst of these deviants. But trafficking is not happening just in the United States. It’s worldwide. It’s not just about sex either. Some victims are used for organ harvesting. This is like a nightmare that we cannot wake from. But it is not a nightmare. It is reality.
Over 32 billion is generated yearly in the United States from human trafficking. Over 150 billion worldwide.
We can no longer close our eyes to this. Stand up! Speak out!
Fall is my favorite season by far. It just doesn’t last long enough. I love country drives when the landscape is a beautiful shade of gold, red and orange.I thought I’d share some beautiful pictures of my most favorite season. Enjoy!
I knew my baby would grow to be a big dog. But damn! It’s amazing that this is in just nine months time!
I did start him in doggie daycare a few weeks back. He attends 1-2x a week. From all reports, he is loving it and being a really good boy. He loves everyone and everyone loves him.
On his birthday, I took him to pick out a toy. While leaving the store a little girl walked in with her family. She was excited about Clifford. My baby, inched his way towards her gingerly. Then he sweetly gave her a kiss and backed away. He is in a different mode with kids. He knows he must act like a gentleman. But when he is at daycare, he gets to let loose! As you can see!
Who knew this pup would add so much life to my home? Clifford has grown quite a bit but he is still my baby.
Bill Gates, the voice for a Covid vaccination. A man with no medical expertise whatsoever but if you speak against him, you will be silenced by the FB police.
Why? Oh they’ll say that it is dangerous to go against what is “true”. Yet provide no actual documentation providing facts on Covid. The powers that be have lied so much about Covid and finagled the numbers, I’m not sure they even know what’s true. But Bill Gates is supposed to go without question. He’s beyond reproach.
We are not allowed to even post about vitamins that boost the immune system. So naturally this will make most question why. For money of course. Oh and power. Our voices matter. Free thought matters. Common sense matters.
I grew up watching Good Times. A show that touched on serious issues but brought a lot of laughs as well. Amos was one of my favorite tv dads. You knew when he gave that look, everyone better act right!! Reminded me of my dad. Yup! I knew that look very well! Too well! 😂
Girls can’t play rock n roll. For some this would end a dream. For others, like Joan Jett, it would be fuel to prove them all wrong.
Thankfully she had the determination to fight through. She had a rocky start. Everything from a horrible band manager to the stereotypical bullshit. She never quit. As we all know she showed the world, girls can play rock n roll! Rock on!
I’ve watched a lot of videos of so called peaceful “protests”. Most are a lot of white people inciting violence, burning the American flag, vandalizing buildings, setting fire to buildings including occupied ones. Most recent one -the group brought out a guillotine and decapitated teddy bears.
In one video a white man screams racial slurs at a black cop while everyone just stood there. Not a word was said. But he is fighting for black lives? No he is not. He is a bored, spoiled rotten young adult that thinks he is really accomplishing something. Oh he is. He is showing the world his true self. Many of these individuals are.
Don’t scream for justice and equality while in the same breath using racial slurs. Don’t speak about peace and love while calling for the blood of Trump supporters. Don’t talk about free speech when you attack anyone that does not follow your playbook to the t.
In the meantime, the people trying to be heard have been drowned out by the mayhem. Nothing is being accomplished. Why would it? Not when the Democrats have until now given the green light to it all. Including bailing rioters out. Now they’re worried that polls show Trump’s approval rating has skyrocketed. Doh! New strategy!
What I see is a lot of hypocrites using tragedy to create havoc and I do not doubt that receiving a paycheck is just a bonus. These are not the real protestors. These are not the real people scared and wanting to make changes for the better. These are assholes plain and simple. Kids that should have been given less materially and more love and more discipline growing up.
I am so thoroughly disgusted by it all. When are we the people going to hold these elected officials accountable? They’re responsible for the deaths of many. For what? Then stand there and point the finger at Trump. How long has Biden had to do right? Did he help with his crime bill? How long has Pelosi had to bring about positive change? C’mon! You know why they must destroy him and his followers? Because he is not one of them. He’s trying like hell to clean up the shit show they’ve made over the years. He has had to battle one lie after another. One accusation after another. It’s funny, he was an alright guy to hang with until he ran for office.
What do animals do when threatened? They attack. He is a threat to these career politicians that have gotten rich at our expense. He knows everything they’ve been up to. They need him out or watch their worlds crash and burn. Hence the riots. They’d rather create one crisis after another and watch innocent lives lost than face the consequences of their acts.
Antifa is not the only ones that protest too much. We got a hell of a lot of elected officials right there with them. It’s just sad that true issues cannot be addressed. They won’t be. They’ll be used to manipulate us all but never truly addressed. What makes America great is its people. Mostly anyways. It sure as hell is not because of the politicians.
