Believe


Sometimes it just seem like things pile up, tough situations seem to multiply adding stress on top of anxiety. In those times of struggle, it is a good thing to remember in what you believe.
I believe in a G-d that is in control of all things and that He will provide a way through hard times and sticky situations.

I believe in good friends who seem to know just what to say and when.

I believe that someday my children will remember all the things I tried to teach them.

I believe that the sun will rise in the morning, even on days I don't get to see it and that summer will once again return.

I believe that all my steps are ordered by the Almighty.

I believe that the Holy Spirit will tell me when I've messed up, and if not directly, then through friends and sometimes foes.

I believe that I can learn something worthwhile from just about anything, even if it is different from what was intended.

I believe that the LORD gave me intelligence and abilities to help others, not to take pride in myself.

I believe that I can do just about anything I set my mind to.

I believe in respecting others, even if I don't agree with them or their ideas.

I believe in praying for others.

I believe in community and in helping those who cannot help themselves.

I believe in self-sacrifice for the good of the whole.

I believe in honesty, integrity, strength and courage. I believe I can strive to embody those qualities.

I believe in justice and a Holy G-d who is just.

Love comes to those who still hope even though they've been disappointed,
to those who still believe even though they've been betrayed,
to those who still love even though they've been hurt before.

Our History with Saber Forge

UPDATE, April 19, 2012: we purchased new sabers from Ultra Saber LLC. To see a review, go HERE.

Saber Forge's Ambassador saber hilt
This post is to document and record the history of our experience with a company called Saber Forge. I would like this information to serve as information and perhaps a warning to all that are interested in purchasing a machined lightsaber, and/or are considering Saber Forge.

Saber Forge makes and sells lightsabers to be used as props with Star Wars costumes. When we started looking to purchase lightsabers that had the ability to light, Lisa posted for information on the Rebel Legion website. She was contacted by Mr. Phil Isherwood, owner of SaberForge.

It is most unfortunate that we have had problems with the sabers. I love the hilt, to be honest, and felt that we got what we paid for; however, the lingering problems and now the complete lack of customer service is most troubling.

Just Throwin' It Around

I have a friend who just got engaged to be married. As he was detailing the way he proposed to his beloved, something he said caught my attention. In the course of his adult life, dating and living, he had promised himself that he would only use the actual word love towards the one who he was going to marry. He further explained that it was his thought that people 'throw the word love around carelessly' and that it had a special meaning, one meaning. For him, it was only to be used in speaking to his soon-to-be wife.

I can see his point, especially when thinking about dating. I know it happens, all too often, that relationships proceed a little too quickly and emotions peak prompting hasty pronouncements of love and devotion only to be rescinded down the line, after the passion has worn off. Careful and introspective we must be when experiencing and building a new relationship that we don't bite off more than we can chew, so to speak. I agree with my engaged friend - w…

Confession

I am a maker and collecter of Artist Trading Cards. In my world, we call them "Letterboxer Trading Cards", because they are made by letterboxers and they must have a hand-carved stamp featured on the card. I have made hundreds, even thousands of these cards, and enjoy the hobby immensely (samples shown are a few of my cards). I also collect them from other artists and letterboxers, and have a collection numbering (also) in the thousands.



So, here's the confession: I HATE LOGGING THEM! Yes, that's right, I said 'hate'. I know, that's pretty strong, but it is the only way I can adequately describe the feeling of dread that comes over me the second after I enjoy receiving them in the mail. If I were a disciplined person, I would immediately make my way to the computer, sign into to my favorite letterboxing site and let these wonderful friends know how much I love their efforts, thus easing their minds that their hard work arrived safe and sound in my care.
