Okay, babies. Let's do a thing. 1 like = 1 cover song.
It's possible that only most of them will be Time After Time.
1. IT'S ALL COMING BACK TO ME NOW, as recorded by Meatloaf.

Fun fact: This song was written for him, but only recorded for Bat out of Hell III because of a long rift between him and America's number one vampire/ghost love song balladeer Jim Steinman.

Why I believe in a personal, real God, and why I believe he/she/they love me: too many times in my life, things have worked out for me way better than they should have.

I don't understand why me, when so many suffer, but I sincerely believe I'm #blessed
Today was another crazy thing that just worked out. I'm going through a rough time and through complete irresponsibility and poor planning, I ended up $310 in the hole in my checking account. Last night I drove to work wondering if I would make it there, I was so low on gas.
Last pay period, I had been sick and my kids had been sick and I missed work. My paycheck was going to be unusually small, so I had bills to pay and I didn't know how I was going to pay them. I went to work knowing my paycheck would be direct deposited at midnight and

“What do you do?” has been asked. Writer and speaker, okay. “What do you write about?” Disaster averted by the server taking orders. For now. #Exvangelical
I have shamelessly ordered a nine-ounce Malbec. I’m here with my parents and their small group; they wanted to introduce me.
Snagged the lone olive in the salad. #Blessed

Theodicy (why people suffer) quick thread.
1) “fallen world” is really Christian language. Don’t have time to unpack now, but will later sometime.
2) here’s one thing with some of my theodicy in it:…

I took a walk around Portage+Main today! I know lots of Winnipeggers experience it from their cars, so join me as I go on an adventure!

1st thing spotted while approaching on NW corner, full bike rack. 21% of 'peggers currently bike regularly. #portageandmain
My quest: make it across the intersection to the BMO building! It's so pretty. I've lived here for 17 yrs, just realized I'd never actually been there. So, you know, there's a hint that something's not working.
Starting the clock! ⏱️
3/ Ok, so 1st thing to note, you can't "just go one extra block" around, when that block doesn't actually connect. Here's Lombard, but I can't reach it from here on the W side of Main.
I see you over there Lombard!

I am simply overwhelmed today. The support pouring out since yesterday is amazing. I love & appreciate y'all so much, especially long-time followers who help to answer questions. To all the new eyes/minds just learning these ugly truths, Thank You & Welcome. #SayBraveThings
I'm not even going to try to get through all the notifications. If you sent me something in the last 24 hours, chances are I haven't/won't see it, but know that I appreciate all that you are doing to help end this evil. Keep shining the light so the darkness disappears forever.
And just like that, after 3 weeks of radio silence, we are blessed with #NewQ!!! #Qanon @POTUS #TheGreatAwakening #WeThePeople #MAGA

(1) #TeamTrump #PhotoThread: Visit to Europe July 2018 - Part IV.

Tea with HM the Queen at Windsor Castle.

(2) I found a lot of photos from this event with the Queen smiling or laughing with POTUS and FLOTUS. The pics are not always the best technical quality & later on I may do a fresh thread with better pics. For now, the key message is: This 92 year old really, really likes Trump.
(3) I've been observing the Queen's body language in public for decades, and she rarely shows this much emotion... the Trumps "click" with her, which will be driving a few people even more insane today than they were already. Lulz.

This is our WAR CRY, we'll rise up
This is OUR TIME to rise up
I thought by now I would get it
His love for me is unmeasured
Still feel like I could do better
Was paralyzed by depression
But heaven and earth came together
And you came to my rescue
I use my voice as a weapon
On earth like it's in heaven
Yeah, I never handle things too well
But I was made to fly, not to fail
I don't need man's approval
When God sent me to bring heaven
Down for the kids going through hell

1) Hard times are often blessings in disguise. Let go and let life strengthen you. No matter how much it hurts, hold your head up and keep going. This is an important lesson to remember when you’re having a rough day, a bad month, or a crappy year. Truth be told,
2) sometimes the hardest lessons to learn are the ones your spirit needs most. Your past was never a mistake if you learned from it. So take all the crazy experiences and lessons and place them in a box labeled “Thank You.''

New Atheists are indeed jerks but this doesn’t make religious people harmless or the victims here.
I’ve found it useful, in trying to understand the fury of New Atheist types, to reflect on my accidental privileges.
I am subject to the general influence the religious types have on our policy sphere but that’s about it.

On the phone with scammers trying to convince me that I’ve won two million dollars by shopping at Walmart.

I don’t shop at Walmart.

I’m dragging this on by trying to get them to explain how I won this sweepstakes I never entered.

My name is Steve Trevor, born 3 February 1973.
“There are doing unscrupulous people out there, Mr. Trevor.”

“There are, indeed.”
“Don’t tell anyone. We suggest you keep this private from your friend and family until we’ve completed the transfer.”

“Yeah, that sounds smart. I wouldn’t want anybody to get the wrong idea about me.”

“You’ll not tell no one, Mr. Steve?”

“My lips are sealed.”
