Your Soul is the spiritual or immaterial part of a human being or animal, regarded as immortal. Are we all stars that are held together by gravitational attraction in the galaxies, the universe, the cosmos, as a well-ordered whole?

Or does it make no sense at all? hmm.... <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeopl...

She has had only 28% of her lung to use since November 25, 2012. Just last night my Dad told me they just found out she has a 2 inch diameter hole in her lung now. They're doing tests.

My Bf forgot to close out his session from the night before therefore leaving the undeniable evidence before my eyes..porn. I was mortified, hurt, angry, every emotion accept for rational thought flooded my body. I got up put on my running shoes and that was the morning I faced the rain and cold.

Thu, 28 Mar 2013 22:29:55 EST The Beginning - 1st Quilt Update! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5302693 So, I'm excited to report that I have learned through trail and error the importance of being precise with cutting my squares for my quilt. <BR> <BR> At first I thought they were all perfect squares. I was actually thinking this quilt will be a piece of cake. I was whipping out squares left and right. Lesson, after my first block layout I found out why over lapping, just big enough, and slightly crooked squares too, just didn't cut it. Plus I cut the Pellon short by an inch or so. M...
