9rules.pngA few bloggers I respect were part of the 9rules Network, so I decided to apply. was accepted. About 9rules:

9rules is a community of the best weblogs in the world on a variety of topics. We started 9rules to give passionate writers more exposure and to help readers find great blogs on their favorite subjects. It’s difficult to find sites worth returning to, so 9rules brings together the very best of the independent web all under one roof. [source: 9rules About]

My blog tends to be both about 'religion' and web/technology so it seems a good fit.  Other 'religion/tech' blogs I enjoy include: Godbit, SonSpring, Open Switch amongst others… Some of the general blogs are: Wisdump, Ordered List and others.

    Love that’s real!

    Love that’s real! Grows this is a very good subject because I used to think I know what love was and I’m sure most all do maybe they do not me. Come to find out I was very wrong dead wrong, I was shown what it is by my woman she is wonderful and I fell in love quick within weeks. I said to myself I was going to take my time and find out and this was the best thing I could have done ever I have been let down many times almost to the point of just saying forget it all and just turn Homosexual HA and HA just kidding no I rather just grow old and die. This is not funny because I was headed that way. Sad and lonely by myself so lonely it’s funny now I see it’s not a good thing at all I hear some people say OH I like it being by myself they say this, but I do not believe it no I won’t for one minute. I know when I was all alone by myself every day come home to nothing or no one after a while you get hard up and weird I went to drinking and drugs then it was a never ending battle hitting jail or the streets or hospitals or whatever or wherever I’d get started on a death wish and did not realize it until something very bad would happen, and believe me something devastating would go on and maybe at first I would not wake me up but sooner than later I would. Now in these times I just know the father was helping me. Thank you for this.
    And I see everything happens when it is supposed to and not before or after if that can be accepted. For me it was not always easy to do that! This is sure if ever I didn’t know what happened but it happened; I met my “soul mate”. I took time and things just fell together and I know she was the one and I thank God for that because I would not have lasted much longer. My past tells me this even though I have the best intentions but like everything else in my life not long and I fall on my face in trouble in jail streets detoxified name it. I lost everything I have more than once that is sure, whatever who knows maybe another world that would be different and so is this now we are together and very happy 9 years now and I now have the drive to do the best I can to take care of her and me so I can be right with her and we will have all we need and more. And, the love I have for her is unreal well it’s very real nothing that I ever before REAL LOVE! Never had any not even from my family sad but true and the families nowadays are getting very wrong just like what I had, most all now I see so many families are falling apart. And, people are acting very crazy kids are growing up like little monsters and when they are grown beware you don’t know what you’re going to have. All we can do is just watch and see. People have less and less restraint on there lives they’re liable to go off and do anything they’re growing up with no discipline or beat to death and no Mother and Father there is none and if there is, it my be two moms or two dads or none of one or the other or both can’t win it is a fight! The Family is no more it’s about gone and when this is gone we are gone. So, in the meantime as things will be getting bad just how bad we will see I know many things will not be nice I believe. I really don’t want to go into what is going to happen, but I know this, I will be with the women I love and we will be taking care of each other sharing our lives loving and caring if everything falls to the wayside and we have nothing we still have each other, but I believe we will never be that bad off we get what we need the father always takes care of us.
    Well the very best thing we have each other to lean on count on to talk to and love. I would say if you have this, you have everything I would hate to go through life by myself that would be hell we are not created for that but with the way people are and can be this will happen. Some people are looking for Mr. impossible to find because their expectations are unreachable I have seen this in most cases or like I was I used to have a low opinion of me so I would even refuse someone that was OK just because I was afraid I would fail and she would not want me so I felt safe with a woman that is bad news and end up in trouble or who knows one time I almost got shot and killed and on and on it doesn’t end. Until now what happened I really don’t know but it did like I said she is my soul mate prefect match my love for her is forever I never want to hurt her One time I went off some I started up drinking a little and me I don’t stop so I keep it up and it got bad I got locked up two times for drinking and driving again so I started to due time and all I thought about was Dawn, but I thought I lost her so I did my time and got out and we still were together she gave me a chance I am so happy and she told me some things about what happened to her when I was in and this hurt me very bad so bad I never want to hurt her anymore no more. Now here we are 9 years you don’t want to hear about my past and what I used to do nothing like what I do now. And, thanks my father in heaven for her, Thank you thank you thank you. We are one this is what one is we are together forever amen!
