Perseverance - The Art Of Not Giving Up Thomas Edison was right when he said, “Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.” Perseverance according to the Merriam Webster dictionary is the quality that allows someone to continue trying to do something even though it is difficult. True success is impossible in life without perseverance. Perseverance is sticking to "it" until it makes sense; sticking to it until you get the right results.Sticking to your dreams and visions till they become fulfilled and actualized. So many people do not want to keep trying one thing for a while, we are too in a hurry these days, we want pretty fast results. We are not ready to stick to one course until we get to the desired destination. I am all for changing lanes as long as we stay on the right path or road. I mean I understand that at times we have to adjust our strategies to suit changing times but it must be done without compromising out standards or vision ...

Yoga & Christianity 102: According to my research, yoga connects a person to Hindu Gods through those postures. Some the activities include chanting, breathing & meditation which invites demons into your spirit. Yoga has several definitions: to control, yoke, to unite, and joining union. Yoga alters one's consciousness and is a satanic practice. Its deception covered in a pretty package. Just because it feels good doesn't mean it is good. There is no such thing as Christian yoga. Some argue that the hand position is the 666 symbol. Merriam Webster Dictionary defines it as a Hindu theistic philosophy teaching the suppression of all activity of body, mind, and will in order that the self may realize its distinction from them and attain liberation 2: a system of exercises for attaining bodily or mental control and well-being. The concept of Yoga involves seven "chakras," or wheels of energy. The root chakra is related to earth grounding. It is also said to be the seat of the "Kundalini" or fiery serpent. ...

One Thing God Is Unable To Do Can you think of a situation or a time when God ever appeared weak? Or uncaring? Or maybe indifferent? There are people all over the world who see this tragedy or that disaster and cry “Where is God?” and many come to the conclusion that even though they cried out to Him in their deepest need that He doesn’t care but instead turned a deaf ear to them, or was impotent to do anything about it in the first place. Listen, God never tries to do anything.

Love, has become synonymous with speech and not with action as it was ordained by God. Let’s take a look at what man has turned love into… “a word.” Love as defined by Merriam Webster: 1love noun \ˈləv\ : a feeling of strong or constant affection for a person : attraction that includes sexual desire : the strong affection felt by people who have a romantic relationship : a person you love in a romantic way Notice that Love is a noun, which is a person place or thing. We have taken an action/being (verb/noun) given by God and turned it into nothing but people, places and things (worldly nouns). We have completely taken what was given to us by grace and mercy and slandered it for commercial use, which has left the word meaningless. People all day long say; “I love my car,” “I love what you have done with the place,” “I love pizza,” “Yeah, I guess I love her,” “Baby, I love you so much.” This misuse of a word that is actually so beautiful in its original meaning has lost its ...
Let's talk about pocketbooks, purses and handbags. I use these terms interchangeable but after looking up the dictionary definitions I have been incorrect. Pocketbook: a flat typically leather folding case for money or personal papers that can be carried in a pocket or handbag. Purse: a small bag for money. a receptacle(as a pocketbook) for carrying money and often other small objects. a receptacle (as a pouch) shaped like a purse. Handbag: suitcase. a bag held in the hand or hung from a shoulder strap and used to carry small personal articles and money. These definitions are from Merriam Webster's Collegiate Dictionary.

I've been reading The Alexandria Quartet by Lawrence Durrell. It's a series of four books set in Alexandria Egypt in the middle of the Twentieth Century encompassing the Second World War. Durrell paints elaborate word-pictures. I think he actually used every word in the English language over the course of the four books. When he didn't use English, he used French. This is where my smart phone actually became smarter, and. as we know, it was already smarter than I am. I downloaded an app called Dictionary.com so I could keep up with his 500,000 word vocabulary. Wow. The app taps American and British English dictionaries like Merriam Webster and OED. It also identifies the language of the word entered, so if the word is French you get a selection of "larousses," larousse" being French for "dictionary." Google Translator works MUCH better for the French, but it's not on the phone. I gather I could make telephone calls with it, too.

Now for a review of the movie Divergent. I loved it just as much as The Hunger Games. Divergent in this movie is a person that can not be controlled in the mind. There is a growing population of the human race that can not be controlled. They are "autism" and "Aspergers". Then there are those that choose to be in control of their own mind. I am like those "divergent". I can not be controlled. Not by parents, teachers, grandparents, step-mothers, employers, military, government or a multiple of people. All of those have tried to control me physically, mentally and emotionally. All have failed. The term "terrorist" in wikipedia means those that go against the government. That is interesting since in Merriam Webster it means one who terrorizes another physically, mentally and emotionally. According to wikipedia this is a country founded by terrorist's. You can't fight for freedom and go along with the tyrannical government or royalty that has enslaved you now can you. So Ben Franklin is a terrorist. John Han ...

The origin of the word "travel" is most likely lost to history. The term "travel" may originate from the Old French word travail.According to the Merriam Webster dictionary, the first known use of the word travel was in the 14th century. It also states that the word comes from Middle English travailen, travelen (which means to torment, labor, strive, journey) and earlier from Old French traveller (which means to work strenuously, toil). In English we still occasionally use the words travail and travails, which mean struggle. According to Simon Winchester in his book The Best Travellers' Tales (2004), the words travel and travail both share an even more ancient root: a Roman instrument of torture called the tripalium (in Latin it means "three stakes", as in to impale). This link is fascinating given the extreme difficulty of travel in ancient times. Also note the torturous connotation of the word "traveller." Today, travel may or may not be much easier depending upon the destination you choose (i.e..e., Mt ...

9/20/13: Bill and I met in a little storefront church in Pennsylvania. The pastor often joked that the motto of the church was, “Until we eat again,” because the explosive growth of that church was partially attributed to food. We had a catered dinner before Bible study on Wednesday nights. Each person paid a set amount to eat. We loved it because there was a ridiculously low family rate – at least low for our gang of kids. Bill and I had our very first conversation at a table at that dinner, where we quickly established that we had nothing in common except for kids and our love for the Lord. That was enough for a friendship, and here we are today, nearly 20 years later. Most gatherings of believers of any faith include food, so it’s no surprise that, in Romans 14:13-23, Paul uses food as an example of how we should behave. …. In verses 13-14 he says, “Forget about deciding what’s right for each other.” Oh, boy. You mean everyone doesn’t have to do what I say is right? Paul says we’re ...

"...As I am once again communicating in this public venue after over a year away, I am reminded that it is vital for me to state (re-state) the following. Doing this work, being a practitioner of Sorcery is not for the fragile minded or glory seeker. Doing this work is a responsibility that draws Daemons and sycophants - in other words it attracts the wild out of control types from the living and the dead... The outcome is that one's entire life is identified by this work and there is no longer the filter that many people enjoy of anonymity and conventional interactions. For me, I would not have it any other way. Merriam Webster defines Sorcery in this way - " the use of power gained from the assistance or control of evil spirits especially for divining : necromancy." Apart from the blanket usage of the word "evil" they are not far off. Evil is a matter of perception. One does not go to a lightweight for Sorcery - one goes to someone who can penetrate the darkness and pull out proof that the task ...

Very Dangerous Mistakes Some Christians Make Pt 1 Father God, help us to understand and believe your word in its entirety in Jesus name, Amen. It’s a good day the Lord made so we must rejoice and be glad in it. I hope you had a good week? Thank God for mercies. I want to talk about a trend I have noticed in this short “checkered pavement of my mortal existence” like my pastor would say. This trend is dangerously dangerous. When some Christians say they believe the bible in its entirety when in actual fact they do not. They say they believe that the Bible contains the infallible scriptures inspired by God. The truth is, they do not. For the most part these are mere words, for actions speak louder than words. In spite of the fact that deception is one of the major themes of the New Testament, with the words deceit, deceitful, deceitfully, deceitfulness, and deceive used over and over again, Christians make some very grievous and dangerous mistakes.

Passion vs. Emotion Passion versus emotion, do you know the difference? The Merriam Webster online dictionary lists emotion as "a disturbance, excitement, feeling, a conscious mental reaction subjectively experienced as strong feeling usually directed toward a specific object and typically accompanied by physiological and behavioral changes in the body." Passion is closely defined as: "the state or capacity of being acted on by external agents or forces, an emotion, intense, driving, or overmastering feeling or conviction, a strong liking or desire for or devotion to some activity, object, or concept, and an object of desire or deep interest." The biggest difference in these definitions is that emotion is a mental reaction and passion is the action resulting from strong emotion (often liking and desire). Someone who is passionate is comprehensive on the subject and entrenches him/herself in the subject. Someone who is emotional on the other hand, may have a strong opinion about a person or subject, but of ...

Fun with my FoK Friends! Topic Online Forums: "Here we go! My guilty pleasure. I’ve been known to don an anonymous alter ego and frequent some of the seedier parts of the Internet. I won’t list the names of my favorite forum sites because you know they can hear it when their tag lines are referenced. Backdoor sites with IP Addresses instead of “.com”. You develop an eye to discern the 12 year olds that are online crazy brave from the real vigilantes with a lexicon of razor sharp 24 letter words. They prove to us the next generation of badass can recite the Merriam Webster and make it rhyme. These are the real life counterparts that inspired the scene in Silence of the Lambs where Hannibal whispers in the ear of a cell mate and the guy hangs himself! After a night in the forums where the pages are black and the text is blood red, you feel the need to scrub your hardrive and take a shower after you log out. I knew I’ve seen you around somewhere!"
Be still and know that I am God: 10 ways to recognize God's power in times of trouble Every time a trial comes to me or my family, I think of the words from the Bible in Psalms 46:10, “Be still and know that I am God,” and I am often comforted. Sometimes, though, I wonder just what it means to be still and what exactly I need to do to make that happen. When we face difficulties in our life that would make it seem as if we are on a ship being tossed upon a stormy sea, how exactly can we be still and a strength to our family while a storm rages around us? As I looked up the definition of still in the online Merriam Webster Dictionary, not only was I enlightened when I learned the definition for still, but learned very valuable lessons from its synonyms as well. Here are ten words and their definitions that can teach us how to be still in the times of a storm and recognize the power of God. Still: free from noise or turbulence; untroubled. When we are free from outside noise or turbulence, we are able to ...
Divorce Care daily e-mail Is Reconciliation for You? Day 313 Having been through the hurt and the pain of separation and divorce, you may have no desire to reconcile with your former spouse. Before you close your mind to the idea, consider what reconciliation means. Merriam Webster’s dictionary defines reconciliation as the act of restoring friendship or harmony. This does not necessarily mean the act of moving back in together and renewing the marriage vows. Dr. Jim A. Talley says that reconciliation is “forcing yourself as a believer to come back to the minimum standard God expects of you, and that is the point of being friendly. Nothing below that level is allowed if you’re going to walk with God and be one of His children who is obedient to the Word. God has given us the ministry of reconciliation. He expects you to do it; He wants you to do it; and He provides you the resources to carry it out.” In God’s view, reconciliation is not an option; it is a necessity. Over the next several days we ...
Butane and Other Startling Ingredients Not Listed On The McDonald’s Menu Like most Americans, I have been in the situation of needing something to eat with little or no time to go home and prepare a meal. Resorting to the quicker meal option of fast food did not used to get a second thought, it was simple and cheap. What I have discovered, after reading some of the ingredients on the menu, has disturbed me and since I found out just how unhealthy the simplest item on the original menu really is, I wanted to share it with everyone. There has been one restaurant that has stood the test of time, originally opening in 1940 with a car hop service, McDonald’s. (History of McDonald’s) The Golden Arches are a symbol for the Fast Food Industry, and they have allowed people to eat entire meals with low cost while effectively producing food in record time. This company has gotten so efficient at getting customers food to them that they even have double drive thru’s. I am sure that most of us have fallen for ...

Cast Iron Conservatives. Here’s the explanation “The word ‘cast-iron’ is not often used, but means: ‘not allowing for any exceptions or loosening of standards’; it also has other useful connotations that are relevant to these people who do not want to compromise no matter what political reality is around them. It also has some positive attributes about resiliency, etc, and since this isn’t a negative term, they may just actually like it! Here’s how Merriam Webster defines “cast iron”: “a very hard type of metal that is made into different shapes by being melted and poured into special containers.” The cast-iron conservatives label is a fitting one for this group who prize principle over politics and believe that any bending in those principles is a prelude to a breaking. Concession equals capitulation. And, like cast iron, it’s very hard to manipulate them — even under intense pressure.

No, let's not debate the issue. The issue is backed up by facts and those facts dictate the actions we should take.

By Sylvia Gibbons (I WANTED TO SHARE MY SPEECH FROM YESTERDAY) ~Introduction~ Hello everyone, my name is Sylvia. Thanks to Vic for allowing me to speak today and thanks to Humanist of Houston for having me. I’m a little nervous so please bear with me. I’m here today to give you a little insight into my life growing up, and to explain why hatred divides us, and causes deep rooted emotions most people are not capable of overcoming. I will first introduce you to my life, and then discuss is hatred okay. I will follow it with my opinion and possible solutions. ~Growing up~ Hatred is nothing to brag about, and according to Merriam Webster, hate is intense hostility and aversion usually deriving from fear, anger, or sense of injury. A lack of knowledge can also cause hate. Growing up I was taught to hate anyone different than me. I was not allowed to hang around anyone who was not white. I was born in a small town in central Florida to my parents Sam and Linda in 1980. In 1982 my father moved us to Texas to ...

Redefining “Tolerence.” Part I This is a slight deviation from discussing a Bible topic but an interview I heard the other day perked my interest. It was between Piers Morgan, a television news broadcaster of CNN, and Mark Driscol, pastor of the Mars Hill church in Seattle. Morgan kept pressing the “tolerance” issue trying to back him into a corner: “Do you preach tolerance from your pulpit?” Then the light went on….the liberals are redefining the meaning of “tolerance.” It will be good for us to be aware of this for the sake of future discussion and to be able to avoid their trap. Wikipedia defines tolerance as: a fair, objective, and permissive attitude toward those whose opinions, practices, race, religion, nationality, etc., differ from one's own; freedom from bigotry. Merriam Webster says it is: 1. The capacity to endure pain or hardship : ENDURANCE, FORTITUDE, STAMINA 2. Sympathy or indulgence for beliefs or practices differing from or conflicting with one's own 3. The act of allow ...

Our Campaign often Refers to the People. Our campaign is FOR the People.The Merriam Webster Dictionary's Definition of DEMOCRACY is a: government by The PEOPLE; especially : rule of the majority b: a government in which the supreme power is vested in The People and exercised by them directly or indirectly through a system of representation usually involving periodically held free elections. Under the Chokwe Lumumba Mayoral Administration, all people will have an opportunity to have their voices heard (poor, rich, black, white, Latino Asian and all ethnic backgrounds). The goal is to create a society that is INCLUSIVE NOT EXCLUSIVE. The goal is to create a society in which the people of the city, no matter our differences, are EMPOWERED. The idea that people are poor and persecuted is frustrating and this campaign is an opportunity to focus on uplifting the city in its entirety... To do that you have to lift up the majority.

[Dryden is a 17th century Poet who has obviously fallen out of favor with the contemporary market for such things - and his last hey-day was thanks to noted crowd pleaser T.S.

No one, in the whole history of English literature, has dominated that literature so long, or so completely.

A+++ For me Business Foundations Does the Free Market Corrode Moral Character? The answer I have to this question is simply, no. Moral character is defined by Merriam-Webster as an evaluation of a particular individual's resilient moral qualities. The concept of character can imply a variety of attributes including the existence or lack of virtues such as integrity, courage, fortitude, honesty, and loyalty, or of good behaviors or habits. Moral character primarily refers to the assemblage of qualities that distinguish one individual from another. A person is accountable for his or her own actions and simply cannot blame a socioeconomic system on their behaviors. A person has choices to make and a free market system allows moral characters to become evident. Whether a person’s morality is “correct” or not, will not be because of a free market; it will be because of the person’s choices and what they consider right or wrong. A free market doesn’t generate moral character therefor it can’t d ...

‘Love’- many people have tried to define this magical world. The Merriam Webster Dictionary defines it as ‘strong affection for another arising out of kinship or personal ties’.

Check Your Attitude By Dr. Dale A. Robbins According to the Merriam Webster dictionary, the word "attitude" means "an internal position or feeling with regard to something else." Other words often used as synonyms are: "disposition, feeling, mood, opinion, sentiment, temper, tone, perspective, frame of mind, outlook, view, or morale." Airplane pilots often use "attitude" to describe their horizontal relationship with the runway then they land. If their attitude isn’t aligned properly, the plane will make contact with the ground at the wrong angle and it will cause them to crash. In essence, your attitude is your inward disposition toward other things, such as people or circumstances. As in with an airplane, attitude is applied whenever you must deal with something other than yourself. According to God’s word, when you become a Christian, a part of your new creation is the development of new attitudes — your attitude should become like that of Jesus. The Bible says, "Your attitude should be the same ...

The Encyclopaedia Britannica's Merriam Webster dictionary has an interesting definition of "terrorism" that especially Sri Lankans who use the term loosely might want to better develop an understanding of. I have attached an excerpt below: "Systematic use of violence to create a general climate of fear in a population and thereby to bring about a particular political objective. It has been used throughout history by political organizations of both the left and the right, by nationalist and ethnic groups, and by revolutionaries. Although usually thought of as a means of destabilizing or overthrowing existing political institutions, terror also has been employed by governments against their own people to suppress dissent; examples include the reigns of certain Roman emperors, the French Revolution (see Reign of Terror), Nazi Germany, the Soviet Union under Stalin, and Argentina during the “dirty war” of the 1970s. Terrorism's impact has been magnified by the deadliness and technological sophistication o ...
23RD FEBRUARY 2013 THE PRICE OF GREATNESS Definitions: Price: The cost at which something is obtained (Merriam Webster dictionary) Greatness: Powerful, Influential Every child of God was born to be great and anything short of that cannot be accepted. Jeremiah 1:5; before I formed you in the womb I knew you; before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.’’ In you is planted the seed of greatness. And that seed in you must be nurtured. Nurturing a seed involves a whole lot of process. You can’t serve God and not make impact in this generation. The seed in you must grow and impact your generation. Note: Every seed that is well nursed grows to become fruit edible for all to eat. The world awaits your fruits, don’t deny them that. Before you were formed in your mother’s womb, God knew you and ordained you to become a giant in the kingdom. The bible say’s this concerning David that after he had served (impacted) his generation by the will of God fell asleep and was b ...
How slaves became employees. Merriam Webster defines a slave as, "a person who has lost control of himself and is dominated by something or someone else." No wonder many employees, shackled to their jobs with little freedom to control their day-to-day work or their career, feel like slaves. Employees are "dominated" because what they do, when they do it, and where they do it are controlled by their employer. They are like slaves because their employer controls their time and their space. Many employees live in a state of perpetual anxiety about losing their jobs. Indeed, research shows that more than half of all employees feel insecure in their jobs and inhibited about expressing their views openly. Technically, of course, employees are voluntary workers and are legally free to leave whenever they please. In practice, however, this is not the case for most people. The job market today is extremely tight and the prospect of finding a job elsewhere is daunting. The slave analogy is also relevant because emp ...

At this point everyone knows there is corruption in all levels of government. Many still haven’t grasped the effect on their personal lives. I want to clarify is the difference between corruption and criminal acts. Merriam Webster says corruption is; (a) impairment of integrity, virtue, or moral principle, or (b) a departure from the original or from what is pure or correct. Whereas criminal is; relating to, involving, or being a crime. In order for a criminal act to take place the act must violate a law or ordinance which has been passed by a duly elected body of government. We assume those serving in elected offices do so because they want to uphold our State and U.S. Constitutions and they want to protect our freedom. After all, every elected official takes an oath of office that clearly states they will “Preserve, Protect and Defend the Constitution of the State and the United States”.

I find it quite pathetic how many people have no individual opinions anymore, they're like sheep following the latest shepard of society, always a follower, never a leader. The far right has now laid its tail on the back end of the face on the the far rights coin - such a shame in a quest for independence and individuality. And the delusion that they themselves have the authority to rewrite scientific fact and even the Merriam Webster dictionary. Be a creator and invent your own 'New Words'. Don't take already defined ones and try to adjust them to your fantasies and expect everyone around you to accept it as fact. It would be great if I could be Wonder Woman, just a snip here, a tuck there, and 'ShaBam' - I'm a SuperHero complete with super powers. A car is not a boat anymore than a man is a woman. Some things just cant be changed. Please stop expecting me to participate in your delusions...Keep it to your role play groups. Please!!
Leave it to a seven-year-old to come up with a new fantastic word. JOYFRIEND: a boyfriend or girlfriend that brings you joy! I'm calling the people at Merriam Webster.
