    Can money buy happiness?

    $7552.65 - the total cost to move me out here. I think I'm worth it. :) See, the company told me (and a lot of us) back in February that, in order to stay employed, we had to move from Georgia to Dallas, Texas. I initially resigned when I found out how good the severance package was...

    Think we'll know each other in heaven?

    There are numerous indications in scripture that we will know one another. In fact, I get the idea we will know EVERYONE - even those we never met. And I don't think that meeting an ex-spouse or anyone else will post a problem - for we will be changed, we will be spiritual beings in His...

    The Screaming Room (for letting off steam in a healthy controlled way when you are feeling angry)

    It takes a LOT to get me angry, but I can get stressed easily. REALLY easily. Feeling pretty good right now, I'm hoping I don't need this thread anytime soon.

    Can money buy happiness?

    In college (1998 or so) I wrote a paper, "Consumerism as Ideology". In the paper, I made the case that the driving ideology in the USA is consumerism. Not democracy, freedom, capitalism, Christianity, none of them. Our driving ideology is consumerism. I don't just think you are right, I...

    Can money buy happiness?

    I probably should not have clipped as much out or your post as I did, but the above is where I am at. The idea that money buys happiness is, of course, absurd. But the idea that living in poverty, or even in today's 'welfare class', is any way to be happy is also nonsense. I remember...

    Can money buy happiness?

    My post in the other thread has NOTHING to do with this, so just know that this is something I thought I'd get some input on. We've all heard it: "Money cant buy happiness". But is that true? Or to ask in another way, "Does lack, poverty, etc. 'buy' or mean that you will be unhappy? I...

    Name something you are happy about today

    I'm trying to be happy. But something happened Tuesday evening that has scared me to my soul. Bad enough that I prayed, "Lord, if this be my life, please take my life soon." Well, I'm better now and I'm still here... But I feel ............. scared. Unsure. Maybe I'll start a thread...

    The Derailing Thread Part Two

    It is funny, the things that stick in your mind. A MASH episode from the '70s comes to mind. Someone makes a remark to Radar and he responds, "Yes, that's right, the temperature is down to a cool 95 degrees". I thought that was an over-the-top exaggeration for a laugh. Well, this weekend...

    The Derailing Thread Part Two

    I post the above mostly for others - maybe you are facing something you just don't think is right, or good, or maybe you think He has left you on your own. Don't be so sure, you don't know it all and you SURE as heck don't know what He is doing or why He is doing it.

    The Derailing Thread Part Two

    Here in Dallas/Fort Worth (Im in Hurst) Texas, the forecast high today is "109 to 112". I admit it, this is too much for me. I've lived here six weeks now. I am still happy I moved here, my personal life will take time to rebuild, but my work and financial life is good. Since moving here...
