Sorry Folks ... maybe Goodbye Websites

Hello folks.

As many of you know, I run a few websites and make rosaries and jewelry. About a week ago, one website I did for a friend got hacked ( I've taken that down because even deleting the found code.php file hasn't fixed things and now Battlebeads is giving out warnings and likely the rest of them will as well. The infections have been traced to Russia ... thanks so much, Comrads.

With my health as it is, I'm not sure I'm up to dealing with all of this and am not certain I will be putting the websites back up. Damn shame, starkvisions has been around since 1997! I have my poem and page up for a tribute to my parents and some friends that have died on There's poetry on I also recently got and that I haven't even done anything with yet ... I likely never will now.

I will still keep this blog because *I* don't have to host it so no worries for me if it goes down and no more late nights trying to fix things. I will still make rosaries and jewelry and I guess that will be mostly here and on FaceBook as far as pictures of what's available go. Most work was custom orders anyway, so perhaps it won't be so bad. If folks want something I can give a paypal money request via email rather than them clicking on the site buttons.

Perhaps I'll even do a FREE hosting site so when I'm aggravated by mishaps, at least I won't be PAYING FOR THEM anymore. Either way, I ask for your kind prayers. I have some medical tests coming up in the next couple weeks, plus winter approaches in the north country here in NH and the roof still isn't fixed. Lots to think about. I am not sure I can take on this additional stress right now. There's a facebook button here and I have a BB page on facebook in addition to my personal FB page. You can also find me on Twitter as @AncientSoul.

Perhaps by the grace of God this will work out and I will be able to keep the websites, but I'm not banking on it and just wanted to let folks know what the deal is now and what may happen in the future. Please keep me in your kind prayers and send some warm thoughts over to NH if ya would please and thanky!
God bless!

The Apostle, St. John tells us exactly how to recognize the spirit of truth from the spirit of falsehood. He says "as for them, they are of the world - and the world listens to them because they speak the language of the world. But we are children of God and those who know God: LISTEN TO US. Those who are not of God REFUSE TO LISTEN TO US. That is how we can tell the spirit of truth from the spirit of falsehood." ~1 John 4:6 [The "us" to whom St. John refers are the Apostles, and their successors the Bishops.]

Prayer to avoid the Sin of PRIDE:
“Oh My Jesus help me to avoid the sin of pride when I speak in Your Name. Forgive me if I ever belittle anyone in Your holy Name. Help me to listen Jesus when Your Voice is spoken and fill me with Your Holy Spirit so that I can discern the truth of Your Word when You call out to mankind. Amen.”

A prayer of St. Teresa of Avila:
O my God! Source of all mercy! I acknowledge Your sovereign power. While recalling the wasted years that are past, I believe that You, Lord, can in an instant turn this loss to gain. Miserable as I am, yet I firmly believe that You can do all things. Please restore to me the time lost, giving me Your grace, both now and in the future, that I may appear before You in "wedding garments." Amen.

“My children, let your speech be chosen with great care—it must be a light in the world. Know and believe that all you say has repercussions in time and eternity. Therefore, choose your words with wisdom and prudence, choosing to remain silent rather than fill the air with useless chatter or worse, gossip or virulent speech. Let your speech be a perfect mirror of your peaceful heart, a heart firmly grounded in the love of God and in complete trust in His goodness. Silence is often the more virtuous path. Bridle your tongue and you will be working for peace in the world.”

In the Name of Jesus I renounce as lies all thoughts that enter my mind from the evil one who accuses. By the authority of Jesus, I command them to leave me. I consecrate my mind to God for transformation into His Thoughts for my protection, salvation and His glory.

It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American decent into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed, against the back drop of a passive, hapless sheeple, excuse me dear reader, I meant people.

Just a Note:

Through the grace of God and many prayers, I survived a double surgery (with cancer) in the fall of 2008. Since then has becoming increasingly important to me to enhance my prayer life. I have taken on the task of praying for strangers and those with little hope and much adversity. To that end, I've also begun (July '09), to make rosaries and related items to put prayer into the hands of as many as I can that will PRAY for others.

The world is at the precipice ... we need to TAKE ACTION ... NOW. Time for fence sitting is quickly coming to an end. We all need to do what ever we can in the way of PRAYER & PENANCE to beg God's Grace upon humanity that we may shake away this sinfulness and pride to get back on the road that leads to heaven and our Glorious Triune God!

After you have made a decision that is pleasing to God, the devil may try to make you have second thoughts. Intensify your prayer time, meditation, and good deeds. For if satan's temptations merely cause you to increase your efforts to grow in holiness, he'll have an incentive to leave you alone.
~St. Ignatius of Loyola
