    Story Time

    I disappeared from here for a little bit because I was embarrassed about overreacting to something someone said in a different thread and kinda put myself in a time out from posting or replying, but I'm back now! Finally going to make that prayer post for my mom and sisters. In other news, we...

    COVID Vaccines and Hydrogel Nanotechnology

    Thank you for clarifying. I'm sorry I jumped to conclusions! This hits so close to home that when I saw the word "approve", I misunderstood what you were saying God doesn't approve of and got defensive. Forgive me, please.

    Odds and ends

    A virus somehow caused a coin shortage even though the U.S. Mint has been up and running the whole time, leading some stores to start taking cards only.

    COVID Vaccines and Hydrogel Nanotechnology

    I have to respectfully disagree on this particular example. My son received a life-saving aortic valve transplant in January (pig valve). He couldn't get a mechanical one because he is still growing, but will have one implanted in 5-10 years. He is still the same sweet boy who loves Jesus that...

    Labor Pains

    I've been through labor 5 times and agree with the others saying this time feels like transition. Can't get a break to catch our breath before the next wave (contraction, horrible world event, whichever) comes and personally feel like I'm at the point in transition that happened every single...

    Long-time lurker...finally joined!

    That's one thing I don't miss about California. Going from one city to the next without any kind of break in between! Well, that and In-N-Out. Wish they delivered to Virginia! The smell of the orange blossoms was the best. If they had a candle or air freshener that genuinely smelled like it, I...

    Any WV residents?

    My husband and I are going to WV this week to look for a house or land. Does anyone have any recommendations of areas to look at or avoid for any reason like crime or drugs, anything like that. At least online, we like the eastern middleish part of the state. Pocahontas, Randolph, Upshur...

    I grew up in Riverside back when there were still orange groves surrounding the city. I hear they are gone now :(. Spent a lot of time in both Anaheim and Lake Elsinore though!

    Virginia’s new gun control laws will cause firearms sales to plummet, stores say

    A red flag law allowing law enforcement to take away residents' guns if they're determined to be dangerous to themselves. This is the one that worries me the most. What are the criteria for deciding if someone is a danger?

    Virginia Dems draft proposal to downgrade assault on police to misdemeanor

    I live in Virginia about 70 miles from the West Virginia border. While our area is pretty conservative, we are not being represented in Richmond at all. Between this and the huge list of new laws Northam put out today, I think my husband and I are done. He is taking a couple of vacation days...

    Hi ItIsFinished! You have it correct :). And I thank God that He brought people into my life at just the right moment to truly realize that a wretch like me needed a Savior like Him. Now, to keep running the race until He takes us home. I look forward to interacting with everyone here and...

    Story Time

    Thanks so much for your kind words! Thankfully, even though I let the words of others beat me down for a while, God showed me what love really is and that the bad experiences I had were with people, not Him. My mom was into that new age stuff as well. She had every book by that fake psychic...
