| || |05/31/2023 “For the flesh desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh. They are in conflict with each other, so that you are not to do whatever you want.” — Gal 5:17 submitted by UnDead_Ted to TheDailyDose [link] [comments]
The Holy Spirit is especially tender of his own work upon the soul. He originally formed it—it is his own spiritual offspring; and as a mother watches over her babe, so the blessed Spirit watches over the spirit of his own creating. It is the counterpart of himself, for it is the spirit that he has raised up in the soul by his own almighty power. He, therefore, acts upon it, breathes into it fresh life and power, and communicates grace out of the inexhaustible fullness of the Son of God, thus enabling the spirit to breathe and act, struggle and fight against the flesh, so that the latter cannot have all its own way, but must submit and yield. For the spirit can fight as well as the flesh; can act as well as the flesh; and can desire good as well as the flesh can desire evil.
What a mercy for us it is that there are those heavenly breathings in our soul, of the spirit against the flesh, cryings out to God against it; and that the spirit within us thus takes hold of the arm of Omnipotence outside us, seeks help from the Lord God Almighty, and by strength thus communicated fights against the flesh, and gains at times a most blessed victory over it. For what can the flesh do against the spirit when animated by divine power? What are sin, Satan, and the world when they have to oppose a Triune God in arms? This makes the victory sure, that our friends are stronger than our foes, and the work of God upon our soul greater than anything sin, Satan, or the world can bring against it. This made the Apostle say, after he had been describing the inward conflict, “I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord” (Rom. 7:25
). And when he had enumerated the opposition that the Christian has to endure on every side, he cries out, as if in holy triumph, “No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us” (Rom. 8:37

'महाकाल' के दरबार में पहुंचीं Bollywood एक्ट्रेस सारा अली खान #shorts Ujjain Mahakal Sach Ki Raftar
बॉलीवुड अभिनेत्री सारा अली खान (Sara Ali Khan) बुधवार सुबह उज्जैन (Ujjain) स्थित भगवान महाकाल मंदिर के दर्शन किए. सारा ने भस्म आरती (Bhasm Aarti) और भोग आरती (Bhog Aarti) में भी शामिल हुईं. इस दौरान सारा अली खान ने दो घंटे का वक्त महाकालेश्वर मंदिर (Mahakaleshwar Mandir) में बिताया.

Wednesday, May 31, 2023
On the Temple Mount in Jerusalem sits a mosque. On its walls are written the words, "Allah has no son." This central statement in Islam, is really an anti-statement talking about Messiah. It's actually affirming what it denies because Psalm 2 says, "They rage against the Lord's anointed," His Son, "but I have set my King on my holy mountain." It's on this mountain that Islam rages against God's Son. Even Islam cannot help but focus on Yeshua. It's the same with Rabbinic Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism and even Satanism. Those who are against Him still end up focusing on Him. How much should we, His followers, focus everything on Him? Make Him the focus of your day-to-day, of your thoughts, your heart, your plans, your every word, your actions, everything you do, because that's the way existence works. It's all focused on Him anyway. The more you focus on Him, the more blessed your life will be. He's the Lamb; He's the center of the throne. He's the focus of everything. Make Him your focus and from that will come all blessings. From Message #402 -Islam And The Messiah Scripture: Psalm 97:9 Today's Mission -
Today make a conscious effort to exalt Messiah in everything you do, and everywhere you go; be conscious of His presence.

2023.05.31 10:40 wet_bread3 Solace and Unity on this Holy Day
Wednesday has come again, brothers and sisters, on a week that has undoubtedly been the most divided and distressing for our community at large.
I, for one, have had a little time to process recent events, and I think for now we should all strive to come away from them with a renewed commitment to supporting each other and putting faith in our goddess. I had been watching some old interviews with Jenna and still find myself taken by her well-spoken, kind, and adorable personality. Sometimes, when life tests our faith, we must remind ourselves why we love the one we love, and then all we can do is simply choose to trust that that person is still there no matter what while we wait with hopes and prayers for more clarity in the future.
And we still do not know the full context of all of what happened and why it did—maybe not all of it is really what it looked like, maybe Jenna is of the Catholic mindset that tobacco may have use in moderation and this was just a singular incident, maybe this was a one-time slip during an incredibly stressful period that she will grow from and would never entertain again, maybe the off chance they were at least herbal cigarettes rather than regular ones is true, etc. So I propose that we all remember the girl we love and why we loved her and choose to be there with understanding and support for each other in this time to help each other remember that, while we stand firm in our faith at signs of trouble instead of allowing fears or doubts to overcome our trust that, somehow, some way, everything will be okay with our goddess now and in the future.
This is, of course, not to minimize the danger of smoking, nor to discourage the earnest prayer for our goddess to never taint her holy form in such a way again. We should continue to love her, which is not to say we glorify this behavior just as a supposed way of defending her, but that we choose to trust who she was still is who she is and thus continue to honor her for her splendor, beyond this one incident, while also sincerely praying it is not a habit.
Please encourage each other in the comments. JennAmen, brothers and sisters, and have a blessed week. 🙏🏻

First marathon. Began running in lockdown, seen vast improvements in all my distances, managing to get 5k under 19 mins, 10k under 40 mins, and half marathon under 1:40. I joined a running club in Oct 2022 and seen further improvements in all distances, so I set myself a target of completing a half marathon in under 1:30 and a marathon in under 3.30.
My training consisted on speed work on a Monday (track) and Wednesday (usually in a park or quiet area with no traffic).These sessions are provided by the coaches at my running club. Some examples of the sessions are;
Monday: 5k paced session - 20 x 200m at 5Km Pace/100m Same Time Recovery e.g if 5Km pace is 40s for 200m then 100m recovery is covered in 40s
Wednesday: 10k paced session - 6 x 5 Mins @ 10Km Pace with 2.5 Mins Jog Recovery
Monday: 7 x 800m @ 5Km Pace with 100m in 90s Jog Recovery
Wednesday: 5min, 4min, 3min, 2min, 2min, 3min, 4min, 5min @ 10k pace with half jog rec.
Monday: 10 x 3 Mins/90s Jog Recovery (10k pace)
Wednesday: 8 x 4 Mins @ Half Marathon Pace with 3 Mins Reovery at Easy Run Pace (Not a jog)
Outwith these sessions, I tried to do at least 40km over another 4 runs at an easy pace, keeping heart late below 150bpm. Total monthly kilometres always over 200km. Since the new year I have been trying to hit at least 60km per week.
I booked this marathon last summer and had no idea of a plan or targets. I completed a half marathon in 1.19.59 the end of April this year, and this gave me belief that I would be able to post a good time in this race. I would have been disappointed if I did not manage to complete it in 3.10.
The longest run I completed during my training was an easy run of 33km, about 4 weeks before the race. I was confident I would be able to finish but had no idea how my body would do after that distance at a quicker pace.
I done my last long run (~22km) exactly one week before the race. Easy 10km runs Monday & Tuesday, Wednesday I done 3 x 10km at target marathon pace (4.14/km) with 2 mins rest in between. Another easy run on Thursday and then complete rest Friday & Saturday. On the Wednesday I started upping my carb intake significantly, eating a lot more bread, rice, pancakes, crumpets, scones, tortilla wraps, potatoes and chips. I was feeling rather bloated for these few days so cut back a bit on the Saturday in order to be good for Sunday.
Race day: Got up at 5.30am - big bowl of porridge with a scoop of protein powder, 2 slice of toast & strong coffee. Had a cereal bar and a banana at 8am (2 hours before start). Sipped water through the morning - not too much as was wary of toilet breaks during the race.
Weather on the morning was ideal - good temperature, no wind or rain. Had the potential to heat up later on in the afternoon but overall great running conditions.
Race began at 10am. This was an extremely busy race and had some very narrow points over the first 10km where it was impossible to get by anyone.
The first quarter of the race through the city is all downhill. Great scenery all along closed roads, very enjoyable and a good way to start the race and get warmed up. The streets were packed with spectators and an overall good atmosphere.
KMs 10-30 are where you really need to focus on hitting target pace. The crowds thinned out a bit although there was still locals outside their houses cheering, handing out sweets, playing music, and even a though bands/ dance groups along the way. I always race without earphones in order to take all of this in and it is truly a worthwhile experience. Plenty of water stations along this stretch and the weather was still good. Ran with a few groups during this stretch and chatted away, was lucky enough to move in front of most of them onto the next group.
There is a short gravel section around 28kms around Gosford House. Afterwards I heard a lot of people moaning about this - it certainly is a bit different from running on the road. I suppose it depends on what you are used to, I do a fair bit of trail running as well so felt comfortable. Only thing I would say is the terrain is not suited for the Nike Alphafly.
The last section of the race was by far the most difficult. Temperature had heated up to around ~14 degrees (not roasting, but for us Scots who train all through winter it is on the warmer side). Along with a few gradual inclines on the way back made for some tough kilometres. The number of people I passed on the last stretch who were cramping, being sick or simply walking grew the further I got to the finish line. There also seemed to be less water stations on this section, which is not ideal when you are in the final stages of a marathon.
The final couple of hundred metres was a flat, straight run along mats to the finish line. By far the best part - all the hard work is complete, thousands of spectators and knowing your family and friends are at the finish line waiting to congratulate you. Even better knowing when you know you have smashed every target set!
Nutrition & Strategy
When I signed up for the race I put in a target time of 3.45 - meaning I started in a pen with runners a lot slower than me. This was not ideal as it was very busy and I was stuck behind big groups of runners a lot for the first 20-30mins. I definitely could have went quicker at the beginning, maybe a blessing in disguise as I was still under target pace and perhaps allowed me to not come out the traps too quickly. I took 2 salt tablets every water station, which was every 30 mins or so. Took 1 gel at 10km, 20km then 32km. Fortunately was able to get through the whole race without stopping for the toilet. I was really comfortable up until the last 10km, I had never ran more than this so had no idea how my body would react. I had plenty of time in the bank so I dialled it back a bit to make sure I could finish without cramping or pulling a muscle. My plan before the race was to keep every kilometre below 4.15 and hold on for as long as possible.
I am going to take a few days off to let my body recover. I have a few 10k runs booked throughout the summer and hope to achieve some PBs. The time I posted should also qualify me for London next year.

The author's father, a former POW, and some of the prisoners' families saved the lives of several Japanese people in the Ofuna region after the war, despite their brutal treatment during their captivity. This heartwarming, little-known story is a tribute to the enduring power of the human spirit to forgive and love. Read more here.

2023.05.31 00:52 KonnectKing The Rosary for Everybody who doesn't know what it is. (psssst.... it's Scriptural!!)
If you are curious or Catholic, you can go here everyday and pray the Rosary with others online at the same time. https://www.comepraytherosary.org/
Here's a history [ https://www.newadvent.org/cathen/13184b.htm
]of using strings of knots or beads as an aid to meditation and prayer in both Apostolic Rites - Roman and Eastern Orthodox. I like this: "Our everyday name of beads
for it is simply the Old Saxon word bede
Classically, the Rosary is a certain form of praying where we recall successively in the mystery of the Incarnation and our Redemption. The prayers are all Scripturally based and appealing to Mary to pray for us is, too. (See the wedding at Cana).
NOW - you don't have to pray the classic prayers. I often pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet, essentially: On a large beads:
Eternal Father, I offer You the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your dearly beloved Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world.
On the ten smaller beads For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.
There are opening and closing prayers and such. Catholics often add between the sets of 10 beads,
"Oh my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell, lead all souls to heaven, especially those who are in most need of Your mercy."
Or the Prayer to Saint Michael the Archangel at the end:
"Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil; May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; And do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan and all evil spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen."
Here are the Mysteries. Originally, the Rosary was popularized by those who could not read, afford Bibles if they could, or get to a church more than once or twice a year to remember and worship Jesus Christ every single day.
Joyful Mystery of the Rosary Monday & Saturday The Annunciation of the Lord to Mary
(Mary is chosen to be the mother of Jesus.) The Visitation of Mary to Elizabeth
Elizabeth recognizes Mary as the mother of our Lord. The Nativity of our Lord Jesus Christ
Jesus is born and laid in a manger. The Presentation of our Lord
Jesus is presented in the Temple of Jerusalem. Finding Jesus in the Temple at age 12
Jesus is found discussing God's laws in the temple.
Sorrowful Mystery of the Rosary Tuesday & Friday The Agony of Jesus in the Garden
Jesus prays when confronted with the sins of the world. The Scourging at the Pillar
Jesus is whipped before His execution. Jesus is Crowned with Thorns
Jesus is mocked with a painful crown of thorns. Jesus Carried the Cross
Jesus carries the weight of our sins to His crucifixion. The Crucifixion of our Lord
Jesus Christ dies to save all mankind.
Glorious Mystery of the Rosary Wednesday & Sunday The Resurrection of Jesus Christ
Jesus rises triumphant over death. The Ascension of Jesus to Heaven
As Jesus ascends, He gives us a special task. The Descent of the Holy Ghost
At Pentecost the Church is born. The Assumption of Mary into Heaven
The Virgin Mary is gloriously assumed into heaven. Mary is Crowned as Queen of Heaven and Earth
Mary is honored above all creatures.
Luminous Mystery of the Rosary Thursday The Baptism in the Jordan
God proclaims Jesus is His Son. The Wedding at Cana
Jesus performs a surprising miracle at a wedding. The Proclamation of the Kingdom
Jesus calls us to do something important. The Transfiguration
Jesus is gloriously transformed. The Institution of the Eucharist
Jesus shares His Body and Blood for our salvation.
Now the Big One!!! What we pray to Mary on the smaller beads: Hail Mary full of Grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed are you among women and blessed is the fruit of your womb Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our deaths.
Anyone can pray the Rosary. Add your own prayers. The point is, you devote a certain time every day to devotion to God and Jesus Christ. You think of Him and your relationship to Him and His love and sacrifice for you every day. Lastly: the Orthodox
use prayer knotted ropes differently and I hope one of the Orthodox will post a thread about that and the prayers they say. I would very much like to have a prayer rope. I don't think Jesus would mind.

2023.05.31 00:17 Ferret-Merit Looking for ferret anatomical model
I've been so blessed with my vet and the staff at the clinic, but unfortunately have to move. I'd like to gift them an anatomical model of a ferret. Doesn't need to be a model of the whole animal, even part (dental, heart, skeletal, etc.)
These are my favourite stories.
When Jimmy first showed insulinoma symptoms, my vet admitted he hadn't done removal of the tumours in ferrets before and in cats and dogs it can be rough. He asked me to wait while he looked into it and he'd let me know if he could. This man went on vacation, spent his 6 hour flight researching the procedure, went to an American exotics clinic so he could observe/assist on a couple cases there, then came back and did the surgery. He removed 2 ballpoint pen ball-sized tumours from Jimmy's pancreas and Jimmy lived another 5 or so years. I think we paid around 390$.
When Dewey got his GI obstruction (ate a cat hairball, ew) we were having a hard time diagnosing it because it would obstruct the exit of his stomach, and then move. The x-ray showed nothing, not even with contrast. Dewey went from 1.7 kg to 1 kg in about 6 days. I dropped Dewey off Wednesday a.m. so he could be seen between appointments. When the vet called I described the forceful vomiting and the he said "I'll call you back!" and hung up. A short while later he called back to say he'd altered the contrast and was able to see it. I stopped by to drop off post-op food for Dewey and the vet was saying goodnight to his kids via Zoom. He operated and called us right away to tell us it was a success. I picked Dewey up Thursday p.m. and the vet reported what time Dewey ate, drank, used the litter box etc...because he had spent the night on a cot in front of Dewey's recovery cage. The x-rays, unscheduled surgery, anesthesia, monitoring post-op meds, DVM overnight observation, 2 days in hospital, etc. came to around 475$.
I've brought three ferrets to his clinic so they can be helped to the Bridge, and they've been so compassionate each time. Anyone who has lost a ferret knows what a difference a good vet makes at that time.
These people really care, and I love them for it. So any tips on a model or any other ferrety gift suggestions are very welcome!

2023.05.30 21:10 lettered_hylobate Update 36: Gondor Renewed - releasing tomorrow, Wed. May 31
Update 36 Release Notes
Here are the release notes for Update 36: Gondor Renewed, released on Wednesday, May 31st, 2023.
Of Special Note:
A New Story Begins in A Renewed King's Gondor!
After the defeat of Sauron, King Elessar and Queen Arwen seek to bring peace to their kingdom, but the danger is not gone and new foes seek to threaten Gondor. Adventure awaits in the new zone of King's Gondor East, set after the War of the Ring when fresh breezes have dispersed the fumes of the Dawnless Day and allowed the sun to shine again! Discover the beginning of a new Epic-style storyline, 'The Song of Waves and Wind,' and team up with Legolas, Gimli, and friends both old and new to investigate the continuing threat of the Heirs of Castamir! The Song of Waves and Wind
A new story debuts with Gondor Renewed called "The Song of Waves and Wind"! For characters level 140. Start the first chapter by speaking to Glindor in Minas Tirith (Midsummer)! This new story is available to anyone who is VIP, purchases the "Gondor Renewed" quest pack, or who purchases quest packs associated with the story that are released in the future. King's Gondor Awaits
Gone are the gloomy dark skies, replaced with bright and sunny fields and hills. Players familiar with the original Central and Eastern Gondor regions will be familiar with King's Gondor from a navigation standpoint, but there are new additions, and places players previously could not go are now open to allow for further exploration!
The Quest Pack "Gondor Renewed" unlocks more than 80 quests and Deeds for level 140 characters. Includes King's Gondor East and The Song of Waves and Wind. Free to VIPs! How do I get to King's Gondor?
Go to Minas Tirith (After Battle) and head South through the Pelennor Fields. Where there once stood an impassable is no more! Questing begins in this area of the Pelennor Fields and in the under-construction version of The Harlond. From there, you can explore Gondor up to Linhir, where the gates are currently closed.
Landscape Difficulty: The Paths of Valour!
We have reworked the Landscape Difficulty setting system introduced with Treebeard and are now opening it to the general game worlds as an option! Read full details about this new Landscape Difficulty option in the release notes below. A new Faction and new rewards are now available by playing these higher difficulties. Activate your difficulty and adjust it in the future by speaking with a Hardened Traveller, which can be found in major hubs and new player zones throughout Middle-earth:
- Outside of the Prancing Pony in Bree
- Near the Stable Masters outside of the 21st Hall
- Just inside of the exit of Post-Raid Archet
- Just outside of Mossward
- Along the road Northward out of Celondim
- Just outside the door to Thorin's Hall
- Down the road from the Hobbit starter area exit waypoint
There are titles available for activating a difficulty of 3 or higher and keeping it there from level 10 to level 50, and then to level 130 respectively. The title granted depends on the class you play, but can be used by any character on your account. Make sure to select your Landscape Difficulty prior to achieving level 10 to be eligible for these titles! In order to earn these titles, you must keep the difficulty system active for the entire leveling span from level 10 thru 50/130. Entering areas of the game world where it is temporarily suppressed will not invalidate your title attempt, however turning it down or off via the Hardened Traveller will.
More Delvings are now available! The Annúminas instances Glinghant, Haudh Valandil, and the Great Barrows instances Sambrog, Thadûr and The Maze have been converted to be playable as Delvings! Find them in the Instance Finder (Control+J by default).
News and Notes
- Several player stun-removal skills were inappropriately flagged as 'Immediate' causing them to occasionally cancel themselves and fail to free you from stuns. These skills are now correctly 'Fast' rather than 'Immediate' skills.

- The Beorning Trait "Battle Born" now correctly gives additional critical damage for off-hand weapons.

- Innate Strength: Raw Power
- Fixed description of the trait to state that it grants +2.5/+5/+7.5/+10%.
- No change was made to the actual bonus granted by the trait, This is purely a tooltip change to have it reflect real values.

- The buff from Inspire: Self-motivation should now correctly overwrite itself rather than failing to apply when you still have a few seconds of duration remaining from your previous skill use.

- Tracery Swift Strike: Damage & Power Cost
- Renamed to Swift Strike/Blade: Damage & Power Restore
- Tracery now increases the Power restored by Swift Strike rather than reducing the (now non-existent) Power cost. Magnitude changed from [-33%->+20%].

- The difficulty system turns itself off in group instances (3+), in the Ettenmoors, and any time the Delving system is activated. It will reactivate when you leave any of these areas.
- There are titles available for activating a difficulty of 3 or higher and keeping it there from level 10 to level 50, and then to level 130 respectively. The title granted depends on the class you play through with, but can be used by any character on your account.
- In order to earn these titles, you must keep the difficulty system active for the entire leveling span from level 10 thru 50/130. Entering areas of the game world where it is temporarily suppressed will not invalidate your title attempt, however turning it down or off via the Hardened Traveller will.

- Floating objects in the Allegiance Halls and in Mordor have been grounded.
- Incorrect textures in Minas Tirith has been resolved.
- Stablemaster map text has been updated for the German game client.
Missions and Delvings
- Delving Barter Vendors and Mission Givers have also been added to all our Skirmish Camps. We did this to make it easier to turn in delving quests no matter where players are. Delving Mission Givers have also been given that title as a role to make it easy to spot them.

- Mission: Jorthkyn and the Hounds

- Delving Selectable Crafting Boxes that drop at tier 7 and above can now be disenchanted instead for 20 Delvings Writs. These boxes now have a six hour expiration timer on them. These changes do not affect existing Crafting Boxes.
- Changed how many writs completing Delving quests give. Tier 1-3 now give 10 writs, Tier 4-6 give 20 writs, Tier 7-9 give 30 writs and Tier 10-12 give 40 writs.

- Delving Mission Givers in Skirmish Camps now give Weekly Delving Quests.
- Mission - Defilers in the Dale - Corrected a visual bug where the cauldron's contents and bubbles could become visibly offset after being destroyed.
- Rewards that drop from Delvings have been updated with new Delving-specific icons.
- We have adjusted the distribution of Infamy/Renown while grouped. In the past, there was a modifier that increased the value of player kills when more than 6 kill contributors were involved. This resulted in the value of a single kill, while in a raid, to be valued over 2x what the kill should have been worth.
- We have adjusted this modifier to make these values - in the absence of any other modifiers - equivalent to equal distribution of the infamy value of the kill.
- We have adjusted the bonus modifier to infamy/renown gains when killing ranked players. This change rewards a higher contribution bonus for killing players of a higher rank.
- The War-spoils Carry-all icons have been updated and no longer display a bottle of liquid
- Lootboxes found by monster players now always drop 3 items from three specific tables:
- Table 1 includes potions, barter lockboxes, and the potential for 500 commendations with weighting toward the barter box, and then equivalent draws for the remaining items.
- Table 2 includes an equal chance for random perk items from a pool of 5 items.
- The 3rd table has an equal chance to drop a single Audacity upgrade scroll, 2 Audacity upgrade scrolls, Lord's Symbols, Captain's Marks, 1k Commendations, 1.5k Commendations or a new Cosmetic Selection Box.
- The Cosmetic Selection Box contains 2 new skins for each class. Previews are available on NPCs present near the Gramsfoot retreat circle.
- The Selection Box also contains several new cosmetic weapons: Thrâng's Sword, a silvered scimitar, a spider-clan trident, an off-hand Gundabad mace, a Spider-clan staff, an Easterling Ghost Bow, and a new Dunharrow Shield.
- The Box also contains a new cosmetic type that can be slotted into appearance Corruptions to change the style of your 'March!' skill emitted effects. These include: a white glow, fire trail, acid trail, and a "blue-foot" trail.
- The eggs around Grodris in the Isendeep Mine will now hatch if disturbed during the battle against the matron.
- Fixed an issue with the first and second marshal rewards not providing keys to the chest. The quests for First and Second marshal now correctly reward the key to the chest.
- Tokens of Valour will now go into the War-spoils Carry-all.
- Updated the new Monster Play tutorial to reference using skills on training dummy Kelsen, Jalessa, or Light training-dummy Orion. If you choose the other training dummies you are locked in combat for the full duration of the spawn - which is five minutes. This is bad. Please use the safety dummies. Use those initial skill training dummy Kelsen, Jalessa, or Light training-dummy Orion.
- First Marshal An and Tyrant Uzulthrang are back in action and ready to rush Tol Ascarnen when the opposition is in control. The rewards on the quests to use these two is increased significantly. Each has also been buffed appropriately.
- All values and costs for Lainedhal's Insignias were reduced. You can now purchase the old versions for nostalgia, but the tier 15 version is available to all rank 1 players and better for 2000 commendations and has a 1m cooldown just as the monster player brand.
- The Rank 9 mount available in monster play now has a full +68% movement bonus because it should have been upgraded along with all other mounts that are this hard to get.
- We adjusted the damage done by Spider Hatchlings to be more in line with creatures that are level 140.

- Mazauk and Old Goldhead have been refreshed and stand ready to help you capture Lugazag or Tirith Rhaw.
- Old U21 gear was using old Audacity values. This has been reduced to 1.

- Constant Pain now pulses healing every 2 seconds, and will restore some power to the defiler when it does.

- Blade Toss now only applies its slow and/or knockdown effects to targets facing away from you.
- Spider Weaver
- Several spider animations should no longer slow down when you gain attack speed buffs.
- Trapdoor Sanctuary now lasts 10 seconds; when traited, it will heal 5% of your max health each second.
- New Potions (of Bravery and Essence) are now correctly usable by the Free Peoples.

Quests, Deeds and Instances
- Tier 4 of Gwathrenost, the Witch-king's Citadel is available.
- All slayer deeds in the Wells of Langflood, will now properly reward players with LOTRO Points.
- Gwathrenost, the Witch-king's Citadel - The final Objective of 'The Storming of Gwathrenost' now functions similarly to 'Into the Hiddenhoard, allowing the Player the choice of whether or not to abandon the quest after completing it. The option to complete the quest via the Quest Actions panel was causing some players to mistakenly erase their progress in a given reset cycle, so this has been removed.
- Azanulbizar - Quest: Death in the Dale - The quest guide for this quest has been corrected to highlight the proper area.
- Azanulbizar - Quest: Elusive Prey - The quest guide now properly highlights the general locations of all the Rare foes in Azanulbizar.

2023.05.29 23:42 iknowyouknow100 Am I “too into” my baby?
Soooo a couple of older relatives have told me that I’m “too into” my baby.
I (F 29), think they are bonkers… but I thought I would check in with you all. I’ve been warned by numerous ppl (some are childfree, some are parents), to not lose myself/ my identity as a new mom… and I’m wondering if that’s actually already started, and I’m just blissfully unaware LOL.
My LO is 20 weeks old this upcoming Wednesday btw.
I have been away from her a total of five times since her birth, each time for no more than five hours. Honestly, I find it difficult to leave my baby at all.
If I’m in the same room as her, I prefer to be the one holding her. Not because I don’t trust my family and friends! I just love interacting with her. (This feeling isn’t as strong if my husband, parents, brother, or grandma are the ones interacting with her).
I don’t crave any time away from her. Like at all. She doesn’t stress me out, I am not pining for my life prior to having her, and I genuinely love spending my time with my LO. (I don’t judge anyone who feels differently. This is just my experience).
I am currently a Stay-At home parent while I look for a new job that better fits mine and my family’s current needs. So I am around her constantly, and even though my husband is incredibly involved, I am our daughter’s primary caregiver. (I EBF, so that’s partly why).
Like I mentioned before, some folks have warned me about losing my identity.
I promise I don’t talk to folks about my baby unless ppl ask, and I’m not the kind to shove photos of her in ppls’ faces either. I still have interests and hobbies outside of being a mom, I just have little desire to pursue them right now.
I guess my mindset is that, time passes by very quickly and I want to absorb everything to the best of my ability. (I helped to raise my little bro and he’s about to turn 18 which is wild to me. I swear he was three years old yesterday). I also have a career in infant/child development, so part of me is always thinking about what may be best for her.
Anyways… sorry for the wall of text. Just curious if anyone feels similarly or is sensing some red flags in my behavior here. Thank you all!!
Update: Logged on and was floored to see my first gold award… Turns out it was gifted to me by my husband lol
Additionally, I was only expecting 5 responses at most! To see all of these responses and upvotes has filled my heart with gratitude.
Thank you to everyone who took the time to respond, and I hope that you all are enjoying the continued conversations throughout the comment section. I’m taking some time to read through everything, and am hoping I can respond to most of you! This is a fantastic community, and it’s lovely interacting with you all.
To those of you who have battled PPD/PPA during your parenting journey, I am in awe of your strength. Thank you for sharing your stories.
To everyone in the comment section who also raised their younger sibling(s) that are going to graduate high-school soon… Congratulations! I’ve never met anyone in my same position before, and it’s truly a unique experience
Finally, I adore my baby, and being her mother is the role of a lifetime. I’ve always wanted to be a mother, and admittedly it was a rocky road getting here. I feel very very blessed for numerous reasons, to have the relationship I do with motherhood and my baby. I don’t care if anyone thinks I’m too obsessed, I am going to continue loving the baby phase, and I am looking forward to the other stages of growth as well. My main focus in life,is nurturing my daughter to the best of my ability, and doing all that I can to ensure that she knows her mama m loves and supports her.
