Jesus 💫👑 Said

Good never allows pain without a purpose

I asked God one day

” Why are you taking me through troubled waters”

HE REPLIED,

Because Child your enemies can’t swim

You are shown a mountain, an Ocean to show others it can be overcome all those doubts you ever had, release

Pray, then let go

Don’t manipulate or force the outcome

Just trust the Lord.

And the door will be opened at the right time

Believe the Lord and you shall receive

This is the word of the Lord 👑

May all the Angels squeal in delight
When one moral
Believes 🕊
God will lead where he wants you to be
Talk to the Lord everyday to send you
Wherever you believe you should be
The answer is in a prayer
He will lead the way
Ask and you shall receive
This is the word of the Lord

Each day of optimism and a smile

Sometimes when we compromise, do something that’s questionable, we think we’re gaining an advantage with people, we’re getting the upper hand, but when you walk in integrity, you gain an advantage with God. His favor on your life will take you much further than having an advantage with people.

Should the U.S. build Trump’s Mexican Wall?

Physicians were unable to reach a consensus: Should the U.S. build Trump’s Mexican Wall? The Allergists were in favor of scratching it, but the Dermatologists advised not to make any rash moves. The Gastroenterologist’s had sort of a gut feeling about it, but the Neurologists thought Trump had a lot of nerve. Meanwhile, Obstetricians felt certain everyone was laboring under a misconception, while the Ophthalmologists considered the idea shortsighted. Pathologists yelled, “Over my dead body!” while the Pediatricians said, “Oh, grow up!” The Psychiatrists thought the whole idea was madness, while the Radiologists could see right through it. Surgeons decided to wash their hands of the whole thing and the Internists claimed it would indeed be a bitter pill to swallow. The Plastic Surgeons opined that this proposal would “put a whole new face on the matter.” The Podiatrists thought it was a step forward, but the Urologists were pissed off at the whole idea. Anesthesiologists thought the whole idea was a gas, and those lofty Cardiologists didn’t have the heart to say no. In the end, the Proctologists won out, leaving the entire decision up to the assholes in Washington!

Say it loud, say it clear You can listen as well as you hear It’s too late when we die 🤗

He says it’s perfect sense
You just can’t get agreement
In this present tense
We all talk a different language
Talking in defence

Say it loud, say it clear
You can listen as well as you hear
It’s too late when we die
To admit we don’t see eye to eye

So we open up a quarrel
Between the present and the past
We only sacrifice the future
It’s the bitterness that lasts

So Don’t yield to the fortunes
You sometimes see as fate
It may have a new perspective
On a different day
And if you don’t give up, and don’t give in
You may just be OK.

Say it loud, say it clear
You can listen as well as you hear
It’s too late when we die
To admit we don’t see eye to eye

I wasn’t there that morning
When my Father passed away
I didn’t get to tell him
All the things I had to say

I think I caught his spirit
Later that same year
I’m sure I heard his echo
In my baby’s new born tears
I just wish I could have told him in the living years

Say it loud, say it clear
You can listen as well as you hear
It’s too late when we die
To admit we don’t see eye to eye

Don’t close your eyes 😐

The color of our skin does not mean we are inferior or superior to another being. 🤗

To make beautiful music, you have to play all the chords. In relation to everyday life, to make the world a better place, you have to respect everyone, no matter what they look like. The color of our skin does not determine our fate on this earth. The color of our skin does not mean we are inferior or superior to another being.

Sir Winston Churchill’s vocabulary and command of the English language was unparalleled.😁

Sir Winston Churchill’s vocabulary and command of the English language was unparalleled. He won Nobel prize in literature in 1953!
He was once asked about his position on whisky.

Here’s how he answered:
“If you mean whisky, the devil’s brew, the poison scourge, the bloody monster that defiles innocence, dethrones reason, destroys the home, creates misery and poverty, yea, literally takes the bread from the mouths of little children; If you mean that evil drink that topples men and women from the pinnacles of righteous and gracious living into the bottomless pit of degradation, shame, despair, helplessness and hopelessness, then, my friend, I am opposed to it with every fibre of my being.”

“However, if by whisky you mean the oil of conversation, the philosophic wine, the elixir of life, the ale that is consumed when good fellows get together, that puts a song in their hearts and the warm glow of contentment in their eyes; If you mean good cheer, the stimulating sip that puts a little spring in the step of an elderly gentleman on a frosty morning; If you mean that drink that enables man to magnify his joy, and to forget life’s great tragedies and heartbreaks and sorrow; If you mean that drink the sale of which pours into our treasuries untold millions of pounds each year, that provides tender care for our little crippled children, our blind, our deaf, our dumb, our pitifully aged and infirm, to build the finest highways, hospitals, universities, and community colleges in this nation.
Then my friend, I am absolutely, unequivocally in favour of it!

“This is my position, and as always, I refuse to compromise on matters of principle!”

Never give up ~ Sir Winston Churchill

Peace is like a pair of shoes 😁

Peace, I find, is one of the most difficult virtues to understand and recognize in yourself and others. Maybe because we all want peace or need it. Maybe because peace is so seemingly untrustworthy –fleeting. Maybe because life is hard and a realistic, pragmatic person doesn’t depend too much on something as ethereal as peace. You can’t prepare yourself or brace yourself for the hard things if you rely on peace. Or can you?

In my opinion, all these doubts spring from the same place. What exactly is peace? And does being a person of peace make me vulnerable, weak, foolish, or naïve?

Yes, that is what really bothers us, I think. The desire, no not desire, the need to be able to protect ourselves for what is to come. No one wants to be taken advantage of. But then peace would be dependent on circumstances, events or the kinds of people that surround us at any given moment. And if this were true, that peace was dependent on anything from without, then Peace would not be a virtue something that lives and breathes and gives life from within.

Maybe that’s why we don’t trust peace. We believe that we have to construct it. We do everything in our power to control our circumstances; we educate ourselves, inoculate ourselves, isolate ourselves, and we enrich ourselves. None of which is bad – all of these things are good, but we can rely on none of them 100% of the time for peace. And people, well, people are people. What exactly do you need from people in order to have peace? As soon as you answer that – someone is going to bump into you and do the opposite. And this we all know because humans hurting other humans is something we have all experienced.

Maybe this is why peace must be a virtue. Something that comes from within and is simply not able to be constructed from without.

But here, I think, is the dangerous swampland where people usually stop and get disgusted. Peace means pretending –pretending circumstances are good when they are not. I’m sorry, but cancer is cancer, injustice is cruelty, and suffering sucks. Or peace means pretending that people really don’t “mean” what they say and do. Well, I don’t want to be the one who bursts your bubble, but people do “mean” what they say and do. Or peace means orchestrating every detail of your life –choosing (to perfection) the “right” people, the “right” places and the “right” kinds of circumstances. My head hurts just from having to write all this down. Do you really want to live your life trapped in that kind of illusion? The illusion that says you are powerful enough to orchestrate everything and avoid all pain.

Ahh, here is the real issue. Fear of pain. We think peace and pain are at war, so avoiding pain brings peace. Avoidance = peace. So peace leaves us wary and those who claim peace makes us even warier because we are given the impression that peace is denial, pretense or a massive game of charades with our lives.

But that would make peace a wall. A wall you can use with any aspect of your life you don’t like, any person who hurts you or any place or “state” that frightens or upsets you. And shutting down life with a wall, well, shuts down LIFE. And if peace is a virtue it is something that ignites life and sustains life.

Peace is not a wall. Peace is not denial or pretense or a game of charades.

Peace is actually the welcome mat for pain. Peace says yes to life; the life within you, the life within others, and the life around you. And life is saturated in the intermingling of pain and pleasure. You cannot say yes to life without inviting in pain as well. A person of peace welcomes both the hard and the easy, the good and the bad, the difficult and the joyful with the same sober calm or winsome wisdom.

No, this does not mean I don’t laugh or cry. It actually means I laugh and cry more. I scream, I wrestle, I doubt, I hurt, but above all, I engage. I want to live my life. I want to chase life down, investigate, create, imagine, share, and commune with others who are in this same chase. Pain does not scare me. Pain ignites something in me that pushes me to engage and sustains me while I am engaging.

Peace is the courage to engage and maybe this makes peace is a pair of shoes.

Frank Valentine was convicted of 20 counts of child sexual assault. His wife Maris, stalked Facebook groups and trolled his victims ! 

Frank Valentine was convicted of 20 counts of child sexual assault. His wife Maris, stalked Facebook groups and trolled his victims !

This story couldn’t be anymore messed up if it were written by George R.R. Martin himself !

Frank Valentine 78, the former head of the Daruk home for boys in Windsor and Paramatta girl’s training school, spent years preying on the state’s most vulnerable children, including two pregnant teenagers. He was convicted of four counts of rape, three of buggery, 11 indecent assaults and assault against six victims, five of them young girls.

Judge Nicole Noman, who heard the trial as a judge sitting alone without a jury, rejected Valentine’s claims that some of the victims had made their claims up to get compensation from the government and others had mistaken him for other guards. Well done Judge Noman, very happy to hear a judge see through a paedophile’s lies. This is straight from the child rapist playbook, “It was everyone but me your honour…. Oh wait, I mean they weren’t really raped at all they just wanted money, yes… the victims are in fact gold diggers” How many times have we heard the last one !

The rapes began just weeks after he started work as deputy superintendent at Parramatta in January 1971. He moved to Daruk in July 1973 and remained there until 1975.

Child sex allegations followed Frank Valentine from one child welfare job to another until the mid-1980s when he was named Department of Youth and Community Services operations manager for the Hunter, or second-in-charge. He should never have been allowed to continue working with children after complaints were made against him….. but he was.

The sexual assaults were finally acknowledged during the Royal Commission when evidence from the Department of Family and Community Services, showed that there were concerns raised about Valentine from at least as early as 1973.

Valentine was granted strict bail to appear for sentencing at Campbelltown District Court on May 24.

He had pleaded not guilty and was supported in court by his wife and some of his children. Supported is one way of putting it, in our opinion his wife downright attempted to pervert the course of justice and should be charged for her actions!

Detectives investigating her husband’s case busted Maris Valentine using the name D. James to access the private Facebook page used by ­former survivors of the ­notorious school. This was a support page set up by survivors of her husband’s horrendous actions and she went in under a fake name and as far as we at FACAA are concerned what she did was disgusting.

The “morally questionable” behaviour was ­revealed during the District Court trial for 78-year-old Valentine, who was this week convicted by Judge ­Nicole Noman. The judge said Mrs Valentine had “engaged in ­deception” with her daughter Sarah, to access what were private conversations.

“(Mrs Valentine) did so to assist the accused,” Judge Noman said. “The morality of her action is questionable. They demonstrated an ­absence of decency and compassion in their efforts and their discussions.”

Your husband and father is a PAEDOPHILE ! Don’t like it ? Well that really doesn’t matter, because the reality is he is a CONVICTED PAEDOPHILE !

The fact that you still support him knowing what an abhorrent monster he is underneath the mask, is one thing, but the fact that you went out, made fake Facebook accounts and tried to dig up dirt on witnesses shows a total lack of understanding of just how horrific your husband/ father’s crimes were and just how many lives he has destroyed.

Police found the sub­terfuge by bugging Mrs ­Valentine’s phone, the court was told. The court heard how ­detectives with Strike Force Bilvo recorded Mrs Val­entine talking to the wife of another former Parramatta school boss, who is also facing historic sexual assault charges, about how Sarah had “infiltrated” the group.

Valentine’s trial was told how Mrs Valentine copied the names of all 92 people in the Facebook group and downloaded over 300 posts after creating the false profile in 2015 when her husband was charged by police. She was stopped when police alerted the group’s ­administrator.
Cross-examined in court, Mrs Valentine denied Crown Prosecutor Donna Daleo’s suggestion she had been “spying” but said she was looking for false information about her husband. Somehow that doesn’t ring quite true !

Frank Valentine is a CONVICTED PAEDOPHILE ! He has caused pain and suffering for many children. How anyone can support convicted paedophiles in court is absolutely beyond us here at FACAA. Support the victims, not the pathetic cowards who committed these horrendous acts !
