boasting

Forever grateful that Damen was Laurent’s first real lover. That Laurent gets to gradually explore his sexuality at a rate that is comfortable for him and with someone who is so patient and gentle and would never push him further than he’s willing to go, never drawing unnecessary attention to his hesitancies, just simply changing his actions to accommoate Laurent’s needs. Who will give Laurent that control and let him lose it in a safe environment. Who sees Laurent as someone worthy of love and respect and not some cheap prize to be boasted about and tossed aside.

2 Corinthians 12:8-10

“Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But He said to me, My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is perfected in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly in my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest on me. That is why, for the sake of Christ, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.”

this shit is EXACTLY why i always say i dont trust people who boast about how “diverse” their games or other projects are because it always winds up one of two ways

Like Arkh project: its a massive scam using “diversity” to appeal to minorities and then take advantage of the very people they claim to want to help

or like this nonsense with two scoops: pandering nonsense that only exists for profit and ally points

wolfiequiffy  asked:

Hey Gabby, How are you?Just saw Liam's quote about how big bear is & it doesn't make a lot of sense to me? My son was (and still is!) big but I never used the word tall to describe him until he was actually standing up & walking? 🤷🏻‍♀️Also how will he grow up to be tall given that the family members we know of are all either short or only average height at best? I mean that's assuming that Liam is the dad! 👀 I'm with u, this whole thing is getting tiring. I just want Liam & his music.Thanks🙂

That’s a very good point. Everyone usually says their kids are getting “big” but I think it’s premature to assume that Conchobear will be as tall as all that…especially since neither alleged parent is like you said, nonnie.

I’d honestly be shocked if the kid turned out to be NBA material at all, but it’s definitely way too early for Liam to be boasting about that.

Team Liam needs to read up about child development and fast ‘cause these stories keep getting more unbelievable by the minute. Or even better, maybe have your client stop talking about the kid…maybe…..at least dial it way down. I know I’d really appreciate that.

Summary:

 Love, as Paul told the Corinthians, is patient, and kind.  It does not envy.  It does not boast, it is not proud, it is not rude or self-seeking.  Love is not easily angered, and it keeps no record of wrongs.  It does not delight in evil, but rejoices in the truth.  Love always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.  Love never fails.

Ben is a sub, his first long term contract with a Dom ended abruptly. Leaving him drifting in waters he’s never really explored before. After over a year of keeping his head down and subsisting on small scenes with different Doms Ben finds himself wanting more. Wanting something that will last.

George is a Dom with a long line training contracts and episodic scenes in his younger years. Now he wants something permanent. He wants a sub who he doesn’t have to train from the ground up. A sub he can build something good with.

They meet at a club.

I don’t know, it’s posted.

My beautiful babe travelled 6 hours today to come visit and now we get to spend 2 weeks together!

I’m so lucky to have such a lovely woman in my life.

I should probably get to sleep, cause she’s already passed out and we have plans tomorrow, but I just wanted to boast about her a bit.

Trump revealed classified info to the Russians while bragging about his intel sources

  • Trump “revealed highly classified information” to Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Ambassador Sergey Kislyak during a White House meeting last week, the Washington Post reported.
  • Intelligence officials determined the information was “so sensitive that details have been withheld from allies and tightly restricted even within the U.S. government.”
  • Trump, the Post reported, seemed to be boasting to the Russians about the quality of the intelligence he gets as the U.S. president. "I get great intel,“ Trump said, according to the report. "I have people brief me on great intel every day.”
  • Trump’s decision to share the information “jeopardized a critical source of intelligence on the Islamic State,” the Post added. 
  • The information was reportedly provided by a U.S. ally via an intelligence-sharing agreement, and that ally did not give permission for it to be shared with the Russian officials. Read more (5/15/17)

God does give us more than we can handle. He certainly does. You know why? Because He wants us to rely on Him, not our own strength or ability to get through difficult situations. Our world stresses self-confidence and pride and accomplishment, but we are not called to praise ourselves. Every good thing, every morning added into the bank of our lives is given to us by the Father. We cannot boast in ourselves but in Him.

Trump revealed highly classified information to Russian foreign minister and ambassador
The president was boasting of the ‘great intel’ he receives when he discussed intelligence provided by a U.S. partner.
By https://www.facebook.com/greg.jaffe.5

President Trump revealed highly classified information to the Russian foreign minister and ambassador in a White House meeting last week, according to current and former U.S. officials, who said that Trump’s disclosures jeopardized a critical source of intelligence on the Islamic State.

The information Trump relayed had been provided by a U.S. partner through an intelligence-sharing arrangement considered so sensitive that details have been withheld from allies and tightly restricted even within the U.S. government, officials said.

The partner had not given the United States permission to share the material with Russia, and officials said that Trump’s decision to do so risks cooperation from an ally that has access to the inner workings of the Islamic State. After Trump’s meeting, senior White House officials took steps to contain the damage, placing calls to the CIA and National Security Agency.

“This is code-word information,” said a U.S. official familiar with the matter, using terminology that refers to one of the highest classification levels used by American spy agencies. Trump “revealed more information to the Russian ambassador than we have shared with our own allies.”

[…]

In his meeting with Lavrov, Trump seemed to be boasting about his inside knowledge of the looming threat. “I get great intel. I have people brief me on great intel every day,” Trump said, according to an official with knowledge of the exchange.

Trump went on to discuss aspects of the threat that the United States only learned through the espionage capabilities of a key partner. He did not reveal the specific intelligence gathering method, but described how the Islamic State was pursuing elements of a specific plot and how much harm such an attack could cause under varying circumstances. Most alarmingly, officials said, Trump revealed the city in the Islamic State’s territory where the U.S. intelligence partner detected the threat.

[…]

“Russia could identify our sources or techniques,” the senior U.S. official said. A former intelligence official who handled high-level intelligence on Russia said that given the clues Trump provided, “I don’t think that it would be that hard [for Russian spy services] to figure this out.”

At a more fundamental level, the information wasn’t the United States’ to provide to others. Under the rules of espionage, governments — and even individual agencies — are given significant control over whether and how the information they gather is disseminated even after it has been shared. Violating that practice undercuts trust considered essential to sharing secrets.

The officials declined to identify the ally, but said it is one that has previously voiced frustration with Washington’s inability to safeguard sensitive information related to Iraq and Syria.

[…]

U.S. officials said that the National Security Council continues to prepare multi-page briefings for Trump to guide him through conversations with foreign leaders but that he has insisted that the guidance be distilled to a single page of bullet points, and often ignores those.

“He seems to get in the room or on the phone and just goes with it — and that has big downsides,” the second former official said. “Does he understand what’s classified and what’s not? That’s what worries me.”
