I am at the Oregon coast. Spending a few days to try to relax. It’s working. Beautiful sunsets, and great restaurants.

______________________________________________________________________________________

It seems to me That this country I going in the wrong direction. Everything is off from where it should be, High inflation, gas, groceries, restaurant prices. Then there is the border crises, the war in Ukraine, and it goes on and on.

______________________________________________________________________________________

I know, it seems like I am whining, but I love my country. I am a veteran who served, and want what is best for our country. That isn’t happening right now.

______________________________________________________________________________________

I must be active, and share my dislike for what is going on. I need to write my congressmen and women. Never sit on your couch and allow the waves to come in over your head.

______________________________________________________________________________________

Always be strong in your beliefs. Honor God, because as we all know, He is in charge. Pray for His wisdom in your life. Seek His promises. It seems He is allowing too much pain, but in reality He has a plan for us, and we must be patient and wait.

______________________________________________________________________________________

Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

I have been feeling very weak lately. I am sure it is because I can’t exercise. I have a hernia that is too painful if I exercise. Seeing a doctor to see if he will do surgery on it.

I am going to spend a few days at the Oregon Coast. A friend has invited me to come and stay with him. This will be much needed relaxation.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

What would we do without friends? I mean close friends. You have some that are acquaintances, but a true close friend at hard to find. I have a few like my friend I am going to visit. He is a guy I can spill my guts to and never fear it will get to other people.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

Do you have close friends? If not, reach out and get to know new people. There will be a diamond in the rough there somewhere.

Close friends are vital for you and I to have.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

But, we have a friend in Jesus and the song goes. God is there for us as well. They love you and want what is best for you, so seek them out as your true best friends.

________________________________________________________________________________________

Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

I have been fighting with myself lately. I have trouble with the war in Ukraine. I feel deep sadness for the people of Ukraine. They are being slaughtered for no good reason. Russia is raping is also the women.

In my opinion war crimes are rampant there. There should be a tribunal checking it out.

That doesn’t help me at all, because you can’t bring the people back.

Still remodeling at my home here. The kitchen has new wooden floors that look beautiful. On Friday there will be new carpeting in the den.

Then of course we have to put everything back. I am surrounded with furniture as I sit here typing.

______________________________________________________________________________

Have you had disruption knock on your door? Did it stay like those long lost relatives?

FEAR NOT! Storms come, and they go away. Stay strong and weather those storms.

Sometimes we get dealt lemons in our lives. We just need to adjust and overcome them.

Where’s the milk? Out in the garage. Where’s the jam? Out in the garage. Where is the refrigerator? Out in the garage. The stove, and the dishwasher are out there too.

Yes, we are doing a major remodeling of our kitchen. They have torn up the old floor, and today they are starting to put in the new flooring. Then the den will get a remodel! So the TV will be gone, and all the furniture as well. The end product will be beautiful in the end.

__________________________________________________________________________________

Have you had your life disrupted by remolding? Are you trying to make you life better, but have had to move many things from your past to the garage?

It is very difficult to do, I agree, but in the end everything will be beautiful.

We all have time when things need to be changed. A divorce. A lost job. Too many bills. The list goes on and on.

Time to remodel your life. Put in new hope. Put in new freedoms. Pay off those bills. Regroup and remodel after that divorce.

It is very hard work, but the end results is a new you and happiness.

AND remember God is there with you. He knows your hardships. He knows your needs. Talk to Him about it and he will make your paths easier.

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

Has been busy the last few days. We had to move everything out of our kitchen, and den. I mean everything. Refrigerator, stove, dishwasher, TV and console, Had my family come over to move it all, and I am looking at a living room stacked high with extra furniture.

We are having hard wood floors being put in the kitchen area, and a new carpet in the den. It will look beautiful when it is all done, but then you have to put everything back!

__________________________________________________________________________________

Pretty hectic, but worth it. Have you had disruption come into your life. Did things happen you didn’t expect?

It happens to all of us. One day peace, the next day, chaos. We need to adjust and hang on for dear life. Thoughts on this:

  1. Storms come, but they leave eventually.
  2. Always be prepared for things to happen, because they will.
  3. Always know that God is there for you. He knows you problems. Pray for His protection and love.

Things are getting dicey in our country. There is an even divide in our country of far left liberals, and far right conservatives. This is causing strive to our country. Some say there may even be a civil war.

It is sad to see so many people angry and steadfast in their political beliefs. We must understand that we are ONE country and should do everything to unify.

Suggestions??? Comments below.

I have been having health issues lately. I mean I have been seeing doctors almost every day. Not fun, but I am strong in believing God will take care of me. He knows my aliments, He knows my needs. He loves me, and will be there for me.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

How about you? Are you battling ailments daily? Do you wonder if God cares? Of course He does. he made you in His own image. The cows aren’t in His image. The birds are not in his image. Only you are.

Be faithful and He will protect you.

Are You a Drunkard, or a Law Abiding Christian Person?

We had our home built. It was fun to watch it growling into a beautiful home. That was 22 years ago and we are still here. One thing that I noticed is how much the trees have grown. They were planted as little starts, and now they are 40 feet high.

That reminds me of our life. We are were little starts at one time, and grew up. It is what we grew up into that counts.

______________________________________________________________________________________

You can grow up to be an outstanding citizen who achieved may things, or you can be a drunkard lying in the gutter. Pretty stark comparison, but it happens over and over again.

How do I make sure I am on the right path?

  1. I stay with the truth. God is real, and He is my guide.
  2. I never try to create a new doctrine. the bible is my doctrine.
  3. I could have been that guy drunk in the gutter, but I chose the right path, and I am very proud of the many things I have accomplished.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

How about you? Are you the drunkard, or do you like where you are at? If you do not like where you are at, it is never too late to change. God is always eager to open up to you. He will guide you the rest of the way.

Being an author has been a thrill for me. My first book received a national award from the Reader’s Favorite Awards.

I am now working on my second book called, Signs of Hope for the Military: In and Out of the trenches of Life. It is almost finished and will come out by Christmas.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

Sounds peachy keen right? Well, I have found that it is hard work and stressful. Not that I don’t enjoy writing. I love it, but there are other things I have to do like sell the book. I have been self publishing, which means it is all up to me to the marketing, promotions, signings, etc.

I am 83 years old and now am wondering if I have the stamina to go on with the big push for my second book.

________________________________________________________________________________________

Here is my feelings on that:

  1. Your never too old to start something.
  2. Use your age to be a expert on things people want to know about.
  3. Take time to do what ever project you are working on. Rushing has been bad news for me.
  4. Enjoy what you are doing. Don’t do it thinking you have to do it.

____________________________________________________________________________________

The most important thing to remember is that God is with you. He knows about your dreams. He knows what you are capable of. He will guide you down your path, or He will stop you if He thinks it is too much for you.

____________________________________________________________________________________

Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

Last week I went to four doctor’s appointments. FOUR! I wish I could go to Walmart and buy me a new body!

______________________________________________________________________________________

Do you feel age creeping upon you? Does it seem harder to do some things? I certainly hear you.

What does all this mean. My top ten thoughts….

  1. I am still above the daisies.
  2. People understand me when I repeat myself.
  3. Aging is good excuse to miss out on some yard work.
  4. Your children start calling you “Old man.”
  5. You just can’t find that watch you are looking for.
  6. You can watch the same TV shows, and not remember the first time you watched it.
  7. Tying shoes gets very hard.
  8. I used to walk, now I stroll.
  9. Driving is now not my favorite thing to do.
  10. Naps are wonderful.

______________________________________________________________________________________

You can see that this is the way I handle my aging. Humor!! It is not the end of the world to get older, and the alternative is not good.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

Enjoy your life. You only do it once. The good news is that your getting another day closer to being with the Lord. I’m ready.

________________________________________________________________________________________

Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

When You Love Someone You Hope You Get Loved Back.

Does it sometimes seem like things are one-sided? Do you love someone, but don’t feel their love back to you?

There is one person who loves you forever. That is God.

______________________________________________________________________________________

We have this minds set that we need to love this world and what it has for us. If we do there is no room for God.

What are the loves of the world?

  1. Desires of the flesh.
  2. Desires of the eyes.
  3. Pride of our lives.

How do we block out wrong desires?

  1. Spend time thinking about God.
  2. Be willing to part with your stuff.
  3. Be satisfied with what you have.
  4. Serve more than consume.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

I John 2: 15-17 says…. 15 Do not love the world. If anyone love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For the all that is in the world-the desires of the flesh, and of the eyes and pride of life- is not from the Father, but is from the world. 17 And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

That says it like it is, and should be.

Always serve the Lord, God, and your days will be bountiful with much joy.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!
