Glory to God in the highest, THEN - peace on earth and goodwill to men (Luke 2:14).
So peace on earth and goodwill to the human race can not occur until their is first - Glory to God in the highest. This will never be accomplished nor desired by the UN.

4/9/17 "bio refreshing"

A married man with many voices in his head; often they are quite loud so I often have very little peace in my heart and mind. I battle chronic insomnia.

My LJ is a place I create posts about either my personal life's routines/events, information and some memes or polls. Over the years my selection for content has changed. Life has changed. On the norm now my works in ref to current events, religion and creative writing are kept at my blog. I use Tumblr for creative inspiration. I also have a cute Tumblr page of my wife's daily cartoons she has written to me M-F for the past fifteen years. I only started sharing them in 2014 and not consistently till this year, So I have something like 14 years of back-log for content. See adventures of bear and bun link.

My creative writing and current events blog is located at
I have a Tumblr page at and don't forget to check my Likes.

I have a wide range of subject interests [see interests for some examples]. I enjoy music, movies and TV but decided not to fill my interests with performers/shows/etc. I REALLY enjoy my DVR, cable and Netflix :O)
I enjoy reading. I like to grow in knowledge and understanding.

I am a COLLECTOR of wise words, beauty, inspiration and happiness. I love boxes, leather goods, journals, pens, BOOKS, vests, bags and rings. i am an avid re-user/re-purposer of packaging and mailing materials.

I tend to view and treat objects in my life as living things. Ja, I know, a bit wonky and such but nevertheless I do.

I have a great love for bunnies and cubs.

Spiritually I consider myself an independent saved Bible believer but so as to hopefully avoid some of the stigma that is heavily steeped on anyone who does designate a denomination, I must consider myself an independent saved Bible believing Baptist. I am a Christian. I have great concern for my LJFs' present state of things and future, eternal state of things.

Politically I consider myself an independent, that unfortunately due to the limited choices, usually votes Republican. I am praying for legitimate third and fourth parties to gain traction in society so that they will provide some better candidates. I am hoping for a bloodless American Spring. I believe one of the greatest detriments to our society here in the USA is the MSM (mainstream media).

Yes I voted for Trump.

I enjoy respectful correspondence/discussions. Since this is my LJ I ask if I share my opinion/attitude/whatever on something - and you disagree - don't get all ticked, upset, or mad and spew venom in comments. No two people are completely alike and that makes life interesting and aids in our development and maturity. Just reply/comment with your own personal opinion, sincerely and maturely and I am sure we will still be great LJF :0)

I am 51, married 25 years and we have no children by design and intent. I have earned a MBA with distinction and now that I have the whole grad school thing behind me (as of 6/26/11), I am trying to resume my writing, painting and drawing. I am also a former adjunct professor in the business & economic program of a major university where we live. I taught in the evenings. (In 2016 I quit adjunct teaching due to a couple things: one,what ended up being my hourly pay wage was around two dollars an hour. Secondly, the anxiety and angst of successfully teaching the class drowned me to the point I was a miserable ball of nerves.) I am wonderfully employed during the day as an Epic Clarity report writer & data analyst for a major healthcare organization where we live. I thank You God for this wonderful opportunity and for all things He has given me.

I am a romantic.
I am Windows not Apple.
I am laptop not desktop.
I am a lover of real tangible books AND Kindle/Adobe Reader books and audiobooks. Me just love books :O)
