Pearls Before Swine!
Welcome to Day One of No Whining Wednesdays! A new segment of The PBS Blog.
The No Whining Wednesday Badge
What is NWW?
No Whining Wednesdays is something coined by Iyanla Vanzant that I decided to adopt into this blog. It means that for the entire day today you CANNOT do the following:
Here are some definitions:
To Whine – give or make a long, high-pitched complaining cry or sound; to grumble, murmur or complain in a feeble way.
To Complain – express dissatisfaction or annoyance about a state of affairs or an event; state that one is suffering from; state of grievance.
To Criticize – indicate the faults of (someone or something) in a disapproving way; to condemn, attack, discourage.
OK, now that we all know what whining, complaining, and criticizing is, there is only one rule: DON’T DO ANY OF THIS…

I am pleased to welcome the latest blogger to become a Dream Big Partner: Kingdom Living!!
Here is an excerpt from Kingdom Living’s About page:
Sean Mungin Ministries is a ministry that seeks to minister to the needs of the whole person: spiritually, mentally, and physically. Sean Mungin Ministries originally began as The Joshua Generation Ministries and was founded by Sean Mungin on September 1, 2014 in an effort to expand his ministerial efforts to present a “teaching/discipleship” approach to Kingdom building. Led by an unquenchable desire to see the people of God embrace Kingdom living by embracing Kingdom principles, Sean began to step outside of the four walls of the church subsequent to receiving what he considered to be God speaking to him through a friend on June 19, 2014. Sean began using social media (Facebook) to distribute daily devotional materials entitled, Morning Meditations with Sean Mungin. Sean began to see the Word of God manifested as he observed that “…the Lord added…daily…” (Acts 2:47). Sean began to feel God’s hand leading him to “enlarge his territory” in the form of organizing an umbrella ministry from under which he would be able to expand the reaches of his ministerial efforts…

This weeks Word Press Photo Challenge is the word “Security”. How does that relate to riding a horse? How “secure” do you feel on a horse? Can you be secure if you do not trust the horse? Let’s face it, riding horses is dangerous. People can die riding a horse. Well,to be precise they usually die or are injured when they come off the horse. It can happen even to the best of riders.
Horses are prey animals. They have survived the millennia by being aware of potential dangers and being ready to flee in a heartbeat. In my experience there are two types of horses. There are horses that perceive a danger and decide they must flee, immediately, and they must get rid of that person on top of them to do so. The rider is seen as an added danger.
The other type of horse is the one…

I am pleased to welcome the latest blogger to become a Dream Big Partner: Pearls Before Swine!!
Here is an excerpt from Pearls Before Swine About page::
My name is Yecheilyah (e-see-lee-yah) Ysrayl but everyone calls me EC for short, and I am the author and founder of The PBS Blog. I’m an Israelite and my name is Hebrew and means “Yah Lives”. Yah is the proper name for the most high, and Yahoshua is the proper name for his son.
Pearls Before Swine is a term that comes from Matthew Chapter Seven, Verse Six of the bible. I chose this title to first establish from the beginning that this blog is founded and rooted in truth, and secondly because I love to write symbolically, objectively, and metaphorically; being able to compare objects or use them as symbols to stand-in for a deeper meaning.
In the context of this blog, Pearls symbolizes the truth and swine symbolizes the lie. I’d always rather have truth over lies and will always seek not to cast my pearls before swine. That is, I will not stone you, condemn you, or force you to accept anything I have to offer. You have your own life and your own choices. I only hope to inspire positive change in some way. Even if in the life of one person.

My Loud Bipolar Whispers.
What is later?
Later is not right now.
Later is the future.
Later is a dream,
a dream of hope,
a hope that I will wake up in the morning
a hope I will be healthy and happy,
a hope that I will have a good life,
a hope that my children will be safe, healthy and happy,
a hope I will make a difference in people’s lives,
a hope that I have a purpose,
a hope that I matter,
a hope that someone loves me,
a hope that I will always be a good person,
a hope that I will have a later
a hope that I will be here tomorrow.
I hope for a
Do not be a
Later is a dream,
a dream of hope
for a better now.
We do not know if we have a later
so we need to enjoy now.

In the Arena!
Have you ever wondered if those who post quotes on their social media sites actually read and truly live and believe in these quotes?
Are we posting them to inspire others or ourselves? Are they lashing out in anger, denial, crying out for help, griefing the death of a loved one or their favorite basketball team that didn’t make it into the final four of March Madness(no worries- mine is still in there- GO UNC!),- or deflecting upon others what we need to see or change within ourselves? Maybe our intentions are to bring about positive change in this world or open one another hearts and minds to a new perspective.
Perhaps it is all of these.
When scrolling through the other day, I came across this all too familiar quote and stopped to reflect on it. While idle gossip rarely serves any good purpose, there ARE plenty of…
