Thigibh a nis le buidheachas
n a gheataibh-san a steach,
Is thigibh fòs le maladh mòr
an cùirtibh naomh a theach :
Is thugaibh dha mòr-bhuidheachas,
ainm beannaichibh gu binn.

Psalm 100: 1-4


"Beware of the false prophets! They come to you wearing sheep's clothing, but underneath they are hungry wolves! You will recognize them by their fruit. Can people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles?
Matthew 7: 15-16 Complete Jewish Bible

Dear friends, don't trust every spirit. On the contrary, test the spirits to see whether they are from God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.

Hello Pete,

thank you for the introduction, to this new Lighthouse forum. Thank you also for sharing the video above. This song has blessed me over the years! When I log on, hopefully later on, I'll print off the advice you've given above.

How do we post photos on here? As you might remember, I had difficulty doing this because, I could never remember how to do it.

Lately, with my walking hobby, I've spent too much time on facebook, talking with my walking friends. They a friendly bunch of people, who support one another. Although they frown on it, there are some Christians on there which is brilliant, but I have to behave.

But on my FB page, I'm sure you notice, that I share as much Christian content as I come across! It is my prayer that I shall be able to support the forum, better than I have in the last couple years.

Frank, very easy to add images without having to upload them to Photobucket first

Use Add Reply or New Topic and underneather the Posting Window you'll see a button marked
Code:
 
Add image to post
click on that and select the image. It will upload the image and place the code in post automatically. Here is the link to the Personal Photographs forum

Here an example using this feature

This option will never stretch the page as it produces a thumbnail which is fully clickable - You can also use the Attachments but with that there is a 200kb limit.

Here is another image - quite a large one of a sunset

You can also still use Photobucket etc though I find the most useful is http://tinypic.com - You can register but can also upload images without registering.

They will provide the standard BBCode or you can prem

In the BBCode list A box will open for you to add the full url - Press OK and it's posted (NO MORE PUTTING THINGS IN BRACKETS)

Hello Pete, :huggg:

thank you so much, for these instructions - I've printed them off, because I'm thick! :hippo:

I'll give it a go sometime.

You must be over the moon, with Chelsea having won the Premier League! What a difference to last season.

I'm hoping LFC step up to the plate next season, with a bit more style than they showed this season.

Wish I could see the sea out of that window, can just about see some trees in the park but the view has been obscured somewhat by a new housing complex on the edge of our Housing Estate lol1

We are in the grip of some high temperatures at the moment, well at least hot for us average Daytime at the moment around 76F and quite warm and sticky at night making sleeping a little tricky. "Open the window" you say - All great until the moths and bees take up the opportunity to see what I'm watching on TV lol1

I did that BUT that is the long way around. I was looking for a SHORT route like we had before! As you know I don't deal well with change. I never have BUT I will carry on...

THANK U...

We had rain off and on all day yesterday but it was light. Enough too mess up ones day. Wes was working on a sidewalk we've been putting in but had to stop. We stopped 2 weeks ago because I was the one doing all the lifting of the stone too keep him from hurting his back. He dug out the dirt and leveled the area. I had too stop as I was getting low back strain. We had 47 stones too put down and we only have 15 left so hopefully we wil get it done at some point..

They are calling for light rain all week until Friday and then much rain over the weekend. Not complaining. We had such a drought last Fall I will never complain about rain again!!!!!!!!! errrrrrrrr that is the plan anyway...lol

I don't really have any clue what you are talking about lol1 - I don't recall that on the old forum platform - It was either move to somewhere stable or have the forum trashed with ghastly adverts, lose the ability to add the Bible verse at the top of the forum, lose the ability to edit colors and/or add backgrounds plus and perhaps the most relevant agree to the company taking over the forum gaining access to your private Email addresses and me giving them permission to send you advertising etc - I was not willing to allow that to happen.

Been dry and warm here, still a little sticky at night - Glad I'm trying to lift those stones, right now I think I'd have problems lifing a pebble lol1

Got the groceries being delivered this morning, glad Mark and Tim are here to help as Jannie is MIA at the moment - Both of the boys are giving us some fantastic support :BLESSED:

With Tinypic and postimage there is no need to register

The great thing is that you no longer have to worry about fiddling around making sure the image is placed "in the brackets2

Simply copy the direct link to the image commencing http:// click on
Code:

paste the code and that's it likewise with weblinks
click
Code:

paste in the link then in the second box that launches marked "My Webpage" replace "My Webpage" with the details of the link such as Click Here or More Info etc

We are fairly close to what happened, we can see the Shard Posted Image
from our bedroom window which is right alongside London Bridge and could see the helicopters hovering over the area.

It's about 1/2 by bus from here.
