read and accept the rules without the constant back and forth about

meanings and definitions. Unless something is glaringly wrong, just

Fun fact:

Bolivia used to have a coastline but lost it to Chile in 1884 after the Saltpeter War. To this day, the country maintains a navy on Lake Titicaca. Every year on 23 March, called Dia del Mar (the Day of the Sea), the people of Bolivia commemorate the loss of the coastline.

Never get between a Bolivia and its coast.

Interestingly, while Moldova meets the criteria because it doesn't have a coastline, for practical purposes it is not truly landlocked because it has a "seaport" on the Danube river and access to the Black Sea by international treaty.

Yes, it has access to the ocean and so isn't land locked

All of these people reading this think that I'm talking to them, but I'm really talking to YOU.

Jesus is looking down on you right this moment, and He is waiting for you to commit yourself to Him. Read a passage from the Bible, and pray and ask Jesus to enter your life. Trust me, your life will get a whole lot better.

"Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him and he will do this: He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn, your vindication like the noonday sun."

-Psalms 37:5-6

Remember, it all starts with YOU.
