Yes Boney 'Kingdom of Heaven', an absolutely wonderful epic movie, I enjoyed every moment of this film. 'Tis a shame there aren't more noble knights & men of integrity in this day & age, the world could sure do with them, Sigh, if only... ;)

Now how would you look in chain mail, eh? :)

well, I sent out my ten letters, but, my luck never did improve.
In fact, it went to hell in a hand basket, so to speak.

So, I don't like chain letters and will no longer support the idea of chain mail.

You mean like that?

We have to be that knight, Dianne. And whoever else would get so far as to read this, it is WE who have to be the knights.
What did he name to do that we cannot do?
Tell the truth even to your death, but, it seems most don't ever come to that end for the sake of truth.
I mean, nobody is gonna shoot you if you tell your kids there's no Santa Claus, eh? Nor would you be killed for doing the traffic laws, your taxes, helping a neighbor....
What else? Be without fear in the face of your enemies. Tough one, but, remember, that doesn't mean you don't feel fear. Just don't let it be your guide, especially in the face of your enemies.
Be brave and upright that God may love thee. That's hard for some because they hear "God" and then there's the religious arguement ensuing, but, wait.
Just be brave and upright because it's right to be so. Be the one that takes the higher road. You will be loved for it.
And if it's God that loves you, the blessing becomes yours, if it's people that love you, fine!
Speak the truth is really one of the hardest ones. Again, though, not for the following of, "even if it leads to your death," but rather, because mankind has really gotten pretty slack in holding up virtues as good form.
Safeguard the helpless.
Is that so hard to accomplish? Surely you have extra clothing that you no longer wear, despite the dreams of eventually getting back into that size seven you wore in high school. Give it up. By offering it on to someone that can use it, you warm up a heart of another human being. If you've stopped reading your books, send them to a place that can use them ( I know of one...write to Gautami Tripathy on the sidebar. She could use all the extra books you can spare. )
Do no wrong. Well, then, stop doing the wrong. Start doing things right and be the right person.

And, if you do these things, will you become a better warrior? A better person for it?

Yes. You will.

Hey Boney, happy to see you have changed the URL on Get Your Own Blog, I truly didn't deserve the previous URL.

dianne said...

Happy to see you have changed your Blog name too Boney.

Wait. Is this the post, or the comments section? I'm confused.

dianne said...

This is the post and it was a comments section. :)

boneman said...

who are you writing to, Dianne?
there don't appear to be any comments here from me, and yet you are addressing me.
