You say you are in your 50s, you are going to get a full time data entry job, buy a farm in Colorado, marry an 18 year old girl, have 10 kids who will be born in a one room hospital with 2 windows, start a country music/country gospel band which you will travel with and record your music and become a multi millionaire while your wife is home schooling the kids and taking care of the farm. Does that sound about right?
FYI: Buddhism has gained adherents in the West and throughout the world. Celebrity practitioners include Brandon Boyd, Richard Gere, Adam Yauch, Jet Li, Sharon Stone, Allen Ginsberg, Philip Glass, Mike Barson and Steven Seagal (who has been proclaimed the reincarnation of the tulku Chungdrag Dorje).
Prosperity comes only at the Lord's gracious hand. The atheists are nothing more than the little dogs who feed off the crumbs that fall from the master's table. If they think they can turn their back on The Lord and be prosperous let them roll the dice and see how long it lasts.
Zechariah 8:12 KJV  For the seed shall be prosperous; the vine shall give her fruit, and the ground shall give her increase, and the heavens shall give their dew; and I will cause the remnant of this people to possess all these things .

I need to hold fast to the word of God and not waiver trusting he will do as he promises giving me the grace to endure, which to date he has done. Sadly the whole situation (division) was stirred up a year or two ago related to food stamps. I am not free to take them related to my convictions and for that reason there was much manipulation to press me to do so. I have held out this long. The last few years have been most interesting to see the many ways the Lord provides daily bread and or heat. He has straightened me, but has never left me without my needs, He is very creative. It was told to those who disagree with me (division) by those who were dispensing them (food stamps)that I could not be forced to take them, and they would step in only if necessary. What does that when necessary look like? ergo questioners. I am in the refiners fire and holding to convictions that others don't share. The others are in the vast majority. That is refining. I barter.
Thank you. Be assured of my prayers for you. God bless.
it has long been known that these groups are part of the expansionism, the freedom fighters, and all. this is a fairly obvious step in the process. love the links to Hillary talking about how AQ was an American creation.... you'd think after years of this evang'ls would "get" it. the storyline that they are just liberals that don't understand islam is just silly, anyone remember Bengh@zi, what was really going on there?
