And the Truth Spills Out

Everything I Never Told You

Let’s imagine that
you love me,
and no light can dim,
no faucet can leak,
and no one can take
you away from me.

Let’s imagine you love my risotto
and seared salmon,
and that you drink the wine,
the Scotch, and the tea.
Your eyes constantly on me.

Let’s imagine I’m what you imagine,
and I can cook risotto and seared salmon,
and never let your glass run dry.
All with my eyes on you.

Let’s imagine we had chemistry to spare,
that we are all warm mouths, and entwined limbs.
The eyes of the sun and the mountains.

Let’s imagine we weren’t the long read,
that took moments to unread.
The storm cloud that spilled
from our shattered wine glasses.
The headlights that flickered out.
The seared salmon that went cold,
the burnt risotto in the pot,
the empty glass in the leaky sink.

Now let’s focus on…

Mars Attacks! (1996) – Here’s Jack Blogathon

emmakwall (explains it all)


It’s the Here’s Jack Blogathon 2017!

Thanks to Gill of Realweegiemidget Reviews for hosting this blogathon. You can read all about it (plus loads more Jack reviews) here and whilst I’m doing shout outs I’d also like to say happy birthday to Jack Nicholson himself (as I’m sure he’s reading this), who is – check this out – 80 today. Older than my grandad.

Nicholson's Toast

Now on with the review.

Mars Attacks! (1996)

I chose Mars Attacks! to review for a few reasons. The more obvious titles had already been taken. It’s one of only two Tim Burton films that I actually like. And it’s a good one for this blogathon in partic (that abbreviation is supposed to be there) because Jack plays two characters – both the President of the United States and a loud, dodgy dealings kind of cowboy-slash-businessman who likes to hang in Vegas. And he has…

Desenvolvimento

Do PT na Câmara

Diante da quadro catastrófico da economia brasileira – desemprego recorde e sem qualquer perspectiva de melhora, com uma recessão histórica agravada por medidas como a entrega de riquezas nacionais a grupos estrangeiros a preço de banana e o desmantelamento do Estado nacional — as Bancadas do PT na Câmara e no Senado apresentaram nesta segunda-feira (24) um conjunto de propostas para tirar o País da crise.

Trump: Kim Jung-un Is “Pretty Smart Cookie”

JONATHAN TURLEY

Today on Face the Nation, President Donald Trump said that he was not sure if North Korean Dictator Kim Jung-un is sane, but he is clearly “a pretty smart cookie” since he was able to hold and keep power at such a young age.  The statement has people around the world stunned since Jung-un has spent years killing people in a paranoid rage, including feeding people alive to animals or shooting them with anti-aircraft weapons.  One does not have to be smart to rule by terror.  You just have to be a murderous maniac.

A book at a time

THINGS MADE KNOWN

magnifier-and-old-book-1481125459OiJ

When was the last time, you read a complete book of the Bible, maybe even in one sitting? Have you ever? If not, why not? If yes, how was it (feel free leave a comment)? My guess is that many Christians these days don’t read or listen to the Bible book by book. Rather, we see the verse of the day pop up on our phone or we read the daily Bible reading portions from some sort of reading plan or devotional. But why not read the Bible a book at a time? After all, we don’t treat any other book this way. When was the last time you picked up your favorite fiction book and just browsed through the pages until you found a sentence that stuck with you? Oh, that’s not how you read a book, you say – exactly my point! It’s not how you read the…

God Hates Abuse

StopAndPrayTV

Read the preface to the book

“God hates divorce!” (Read the rest of the verse…)

Christian wives frequently hear this first part of Malachi 2:16 as though the institution of marriage trumps the lives wrapped up in it. Rarely quoted is the second part of the verse which says:

“along with the one who conceals his violence by outward appearances.”

Christian wives often think they have only two options: endure abuse or face condemnation by God for not obeying the Bible. As a result, guilt, despair, internal conflict and heartache cloak every moment as they cling to survival, trying to please both God and their husband.

The future looks hopeless, and their identity and value obscured. Children grow up as secondary victims of domestic abuse, desensitized to God’s ways and primed to continue the cycle of abuse as adults.

A few years ago, I was in a dangerous toxic “Christian”…

Christ the Foundation

StopAndPrayTV

“For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.” (1 Corinthians 3:11)

The only sure and lasting foundation for either a Christian institution or an individual Christian life is the Lord Jesus Christ. No other foundation will endure in that coming day when “the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is” (v. 13).

It is vital, therefore, to build on the foundation that Christ Himself has laid. This is laid in three courses, each of which is essential for its permanence. First of all, we must acknowledge with the apostle that “Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands” (Hebrews 1:10). He is the Creator of all things, and therefore Lord over all.

Second, we must acknowledge with Peter that we have been “redeemed . . …

Psalm 90

This Psalm is the record of Moses feelings when he saw the people dying in the wilderness, and it ought not to be read as exactly descriptive of the feelings of godly men, whose death is not a judgment of God’s wrath, but a falling asleep in God’s arms, that they may depart out of this present evil world to be where Jesus is.

A Prayer of Moses the Man of God

Psalm 90:1

We wander in tents, but, like our fathers, we dwell in thee. Sweet thought, in every age God is the home of his people.

Psalm 90:2

Though men. die, Thou ever livest; though nature itself expire, Thou art the same.

Psalm 90:3

One word from thee is enough. When thy fiat has gone forth, the spirits of men return to thee.

Psalm 90:4

What are ages to eternity? The drop is more in relation…
