Our life is but a vapor that moves quickly

Enjoy the beauty of life while you are  still here

For like a vapor in the wind, we all quickly disappear.

  1. Do you ask permission to reblog or is the fact that a post has the “reblog” button permission in and of itself? I’m relatively new to being active on WP [since last oct/nov] and there is still a lot I am learning. Thank you for your time.

    1. The way that I have been doing it for a few years now is if they have a ‘reblog’ button and it is an article that I would like to reblog to my readers I leave a comment in the ‘like’ button section and I tell them that I liked this particular article and that I am going to reblog the article for them. Then I just click the reblog button and send it over to my site. Just make sure that you don’t delete any of their site information as this lets your readers know that it is a reblog from someone else’s site. I have only had one person ever get mad and mouthy with me for doing it this way, he said I ‘stole’ his article. Personally I felt then and now that he was an idiot and quite the horses behind so when I see one of his posts I do not bother to read his material nor do I reblog anything for him. If you have a reblog button and you get mad if someone reblogs your article, you have mental issues that need to be addressed, at least that is my opinion. The whole concept of taking the time to write and post up an article is so that as many people as possible can get to read it. But you probably know that old saying “there’s always one in every crowd”, you can’t please everybody any of the time it seems. Good luck in your efforts here on WP. Anytime you ever wish to ask a question to me I will always try my best to answer it within 24 hours. I am not saying I am some kind of know it all but there is one thing I will guarantee you and anyone who reads my blog, I will never ever lie to you. Thank you very much for taking the time to comment, I appreciate you stopping in.—ted

    1. I don’t really expect to gain anything at all from doing this blog from a material standpoint. What I do like about it is that I get to read many people’s thoughts and ideas and I enjoy getting to communicate with people from all over the world where if I didn’t have this blog I would be less knowledgeable about events going on around our world. I am a shut in because of health issues, about the only time I ever get out of the house is when I am being driven to one of my doctor appointments so this blog helps me a lot in keeping from being so bored.

  2. Nothing has life apart from the breath of God. His breath animates us and gives us being. He withdraws that breath, our bodies fall back to dust (the elements of the earth) and our soul returns to Him to be reanimated at the judgement. I’m so thankful that even when I didn’t believe in God, He believed in me and gave me temporary life and the chance to embrace eternal life that belongs only to God and His Son Jesus who offers eternal life to all who will believe. My Father is a gracious gentleman who forces Himself on no one.

  3. Billy Graham said this about 10-15 years ago. He didn’t quote scripture and verse, I just thought he was a wise old man. Then I began to read the Bible through each year, and there it was!!! Such important words!
    “Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, spend a year there, buy and sell, and make a profit”; whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away.”
    ‭‭James‬ ‭4:13-14‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

    1. Naw, I don’t wish to push anything on anyone Chris. I simply wish to share many different opinions that many different people have about different issues. I definitely do not agree with everything that people write to me but I try to give fair ‘airtime’ to different thoughts and opinions. I do have a question for you though Chris. Are you a person that believes that there is no such thing as ‘a God, making you an Atheist’ or, do you believe that there is only one God? If so, do you believe in the existence of Allah?

      2. Okay, thank you for the information Chris, I appreciate your kindness and your honesty. So many people believe different things. There are many hundreds if not thousands of religions around the world as well as people like you who have no religion that they believe in, and these people, like you, also have many different views. I know that I can not make everyone happy by what I write or reblog for other people so I don’t tend to write articles trying to please everyone, I know it is not possible to do. Yet I do not write articles trying to make other people mad either. I just try to be open and as fair as I know how at trying to show a broad view of the world that we all live in. I know that everyday there are people who disagree with me on different issues and that is okay, I don’t expect everyone to agree. I expect people to have other opinions and that is cool with me, and I do not mind at all when these folks send me negative comments, they are just expressing their opinions and their beliefs. It is good to have open conversation. So, Chris, when you agree with me or disagree with me I enjoy hearing from you sir, open conversation is how we learn from each other. I wish you only the best in your life sir.

      3. Here’s a thought, now when a sun dies, it’s mass usually so dens that i falls creating a black hole, now upon arriving at the other side, with building block in place in the dead star, create whole new space? Still very young, as to form planets’ and falling through would this create a big bang!

      4. I am not a scientist, I do wish I was that smart, but I know that I’m not. I do believe that the universe started with the ‘big bang theory’ but I believe that it was God who caused it to happen, that it was His will. I do know that every universe that we humans know of does have a black hole in each of them. I know what science says happens with black holes, that they just suck in everything and everything is totally pulled apart as it gets into the black holes gravity field. But Chris, I am no scientist and if I said I knew the answer to your question I would be lying to you and I will not do that. So all I can say is, I don’t know.

      5. No, Chris, you and I simply have different opinions when it comes to the issue of God. I do not believe that you are lying to me just because you have a different opinion than I do. Just as I am not lying to you, we simply have different beliefs, that’s all. Chris, we are both grown men, there is no reason for either of us to lie to each other, that is something that little children do. I am wrong sometimes on somethings things, but I do not lie about things. If a person lies to another person the person doing the lying is disrespecting the person they are lying to, they are in effect saying that the person they are talking to is not worthy of being spoken to truthfully. You have never done anything wrong toward me, I do not believe that you have ever lied to me and I have not ever lied to you. Even though we disagree on some things Chris, I still respect you Sir, I am not going to lie to you about anything. I do hope you have a great weekend Chris.

    1. I don’t believe that I am smarter than other people nor do I believe that I am some how more special than others so I do believe that there have got to be many other people who have been given the same sight as I. We just have to try to get as many others as possible to open their eyes to understanding more clearly. Thank you very much for your comments.

  6. I’m planning on doing an English Literature with Creative Writing undergraduate degree course, beginning in 2010. Initially, I just wanted to study English, but recently I’ve decided I would be better suited to English Literature with Creative Writing. Are there any universities that are especially good for English and creative writing? A lot of the universities I had previously been looking at don’t offer the course, and The Times University Guide only offers an English league table. All answers appreciated! (-:.
