There have been many things that are happening that are pulling us all down like a huge magnate. Inflation, war in Ukraine, high crime rates, our southern border, gas prices. All this seems to be on the shoulders of our current president.

______________________________________________________________________________________

In reality it is something that probably would have happened no matter who the president is. Of course some of the things can be avoided, and I wish the president could see that.

Still struggling with arthritis in my right hip. I am taking Tylenol Arthritis pills t but there is still some pain there. I will see a specialist, soon to see if there is something they can do that isn’t surgery. I am told that I am too old for any kind of surgery.

How is your day going. Do you often wish you could just stay in bed all day? I certainly have been there.

Life is not a beautiful rose garden. There are too many thorns that can hurt us.

Lost relationships, overpowering bills to pay, lost job, depression. What can we do to overcome all of this:

  1. One day at a time.
  2. Face the storms, and you will become stronger.
  3. Never, ever, give up!
  4. Pray to God for His help.

___________________________________________________________________________________

Remember:

You are never alone,

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

On my last post I talked about prayer.

The future doesn’t look too exciting right now. Wars, Border crisis, inflation skyrocketing, Gas prices soaring. This is enough to makes us want to go hide in a cave.

Living for the moment is getting harder each day. The future doesn’t look all that good.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

So, let’s concentrate on prayer. Pray can change the world. We need to spend daily moments in prayer. We need to learn how to pray, to pray how to learn. When we pray we are at our best.

Here is my thoughts on planning to pray:

  1. Have a prayer plan.
  2. Have a special place to pray.
  3. Schedule your prayer time for every day.
  4. Even have a prayer partner.

______________________________________________________________________________________

This looks like a very simple guide, but it is powerful. If you follow it daily, I guarantee you it will change you life.

God is listening. He hears your prayer. He loves to talk with you. Reach out to Him daily. Your life will be much better.

______________________________________________________________________________________

Remember:

You are never alone,

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

It has been awhile since I posted. been struggling with the flu, hip pain and weakness. I am trying to get back to the routine of talking with you.

______________________________________________________________________________________

It can be very disheartening to have so many trials in ones life. It seems to be a regular thing for some of us. I am an optimist, so I have some thoughts on the grim outlook of life:

  1. Storms come, but storms go.
  2. Never give up.
  3. Always fight back against the darkside.
  4. The past is gone, live for today, because tomorrow is another day.
  5. Reach out to others who are struggling. It helps them AND you.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

The new year is upon us. We need to look forward to a bright year full of hope. It only can happen when you believe that. Start out the new year with hope and courage.

Also know that God is with you. He knows your hurts. He knows your needs. pray to Him for your protection and love.

On December 7th, 1941 The Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor, and killed several thousands of Americans. I was only two years old at the time, so I didn’t really know what was going on.

Three of my uncles, fought in WWII and two of them received Purple Hearts. Their heroics helped stop the war and our freedom.

I enlisted in 1959 in the Army. I did it to honor my uncles who fought ahead of me. Each of them was a hero to me.

I am proud to have served my country, and I would do it again if I could.

It is getting close to the most important holiday of the year. It is Christmas. The word Christmas means the mass for Christ. During this hectic time many people have completely forgotten the true meaning of Christmas. Christ seems to have disappeared out of their lives during this holiday.

Jesus was born on Christmas day. he became the savior for the world. He paid the supreme price by dying for each of us on the cross. That means you too. Jesus doesn’t hand pick His favorites. He loves ALL of us no matter what our beliefs are.

All we have to do is invite Him into out hearts and we are Christians. You become His child.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

I mentioned before that this time of year is very hectic. Do not let the stress of the holiday pull you down like a huge magnate. Keep being positive, and share your joy with others, who are suffering.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

Remember:

You are never alone,

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

I had my first physical therapy appointment today. Oh doggie was it rough. Kate my therapist pushed me hard. My muscles are aching right now. I need the therapy big time. My legs have gotten soft, and it is causing me balance problems and fatigue.

I will keep going and hope that I get stronger as the times goes by.

_____________________________________________________________________________________

Have you had some times where you feel weak, and it is hard to move? I certainly hear you. This is a problem us and older folks face. The muscles start to weaken if we don’t’ keep exercising them.

Never feel you are falling apart. We just need to do something about our bodies.

  1. Go for walks as often as you can. Start out with a short walk, and don’t push it. Then stretch it out a little, Eventually you will be able to walk around a track several times.
  2. Cutting out of bad foods will help tremendously. I was eating some pretty bad stuff, and my weight sky rocketed. I go to cardiac rehab twice a week and walk on the tread mill. That will not only build up my strength, but it uses up many calories.
  3. Don’t sit at your computer all day. Get up at least once every half hour to stretch your muscles.

I bet you can think of many other things to do. List them now.

____________________________________________________________________________________

One of the things that happens to us when we get down on ourselves is depression. It come with the territory when we feel weak, fat, and unhealthy. The ting we always want to remember is that God is with us 24/7. He can brighten you day if you just take time to talk to Him. He loves to talk to you.

_____________________________________________________________________________________

Never let the darkside drag you down like a huge magnate. Fight back with God’s help.

You are never alone,

You are never forsaken,

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

FOREWORD


STORIES HAVE THEIR own unique way of teaching us things.
When Jesus taught the crowds from Capernaum to Jerusalem,
He chose stories about everyday people in everyday places to
teach us about ourselves and about the God we serve. With their
panoramic perspective, stories give us insight into the essential
matters of life. We learn from the truths embedded in the journey
of others.
In Signs of Hope, Douglas Bolton extracts wisdom from his
personal life experience, mining it for the faith lessons God
has urged his heart to pen for us. In his words, we fi nd simple
answers to the harrowing and the complicated as he shares timely
and powerful lessons on living with hope in the midst of this
challenging age.
Hope refreshes us when we feel overpowered by the world
around us. We observe bleakness in another’s eyes (and sometimes
in our own) and wonder how our peace can be restored. Self-generated resources are inadequate. But when we turn back toward
God, we discover His supply, an unending fountain for us to drink.

The power and richness of stories are themselves a fountain
when flowing with God’s eternal truth. It’s in this spirit that I
recommend the journey Douglas Bolton has arranged for his
readers. His experience of walking many years and miles with the
Lord has infused these pages. May Signs of Hope, with its offering
of refreshment, grow your faith in God and lead you to a closer
walk with Him.

We Get Excited When the Weekend Comes. Are You Too Stressed to Enjoy it?

+If you like what you see, please subscribe at the top of this page where it says, “subscribe.” When you do, all future posts will come directly to your inbox. Also, if you know some else who could benefit from this site, please let them know.

Today is my 301’st blog post. I was much higher at one time but my computer went out on me and I lost everything. I had to start over.

Today is Friday, which means that tomorrow is the weekend. Whoopi for those who are still working, but for us retired folks it is just another day.

I remember the excitement of an upcoming weekend. Enjoying my time with my wife and children. Doing fun things.

______________________________________________________________________________________

With the stressful times we have now, just how much time do you have with your family on the weekends? It is pretty hectic most of the time.

______________________________________________________________________________________

Here is what I would do if I was still working:

  1. Put family first. They are far more important than anything else.
  2. Don’t feel guilty if you don’t get something done that you wanted to get done. It will still be there tomorrow.
  3. Always reach out to your family and be positive for them every day.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

How about your spiritual life. Do you done things one way during the week and another way for church?

We all need to be consistent and worship with other Christians. I know it is sometimes hard to submit to God, and realize He is your authority. He is a very loving God, and when you obey Him He takes very good care of you. He made you on His own image.

________________________________________________________________________________________

Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

  2. Am I satisfied in my relationship with God?
  3. Everyone has an assignment from God.
  4. We need to make our faith white hot.
  5. Find someone you are comfortable to share with.
  6. Forgiveness is so unnatural for people.
  7. We live by the rules of God if we have integrity.

  9. Walk away from those who try to change your values.
  10. Faith leads to action without fear.
  11. Are there any sins I don’t want to turn over to God?

  13. What idols do I have in life that taking me away from God?

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.

________________________________________________________________________________________

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

I have decided to do some changes to this site to make it more interesting. Let me know in the comment section below what you think.

_______________________________________________________________________________________OOur country is heading in the wrong direction. Inflation is sky high. Gas prices are terrible. Thousands of illegal immigrants are crossing our southern border. Corruption is running wild in our government. The crime rates are out of sight.

_______________________________________________________________________________________
It is hard not to be depressed when this is happening. So what can we do to try to overcome all of this:

  1. Write to your congressmen and women. Let them know you aren’t happy on how things are going.
  2. Support positive causes. I will not list them here. Check them out.
  3. Teach your children what is right and wrong. This will change the world.
  4. Be strong in your beliefs.

How you are you holding up? Is all this turmoil overcoming you? It is reassuring to me that God is with me. The comfort I feel is beyond definition. I know He is watching over me, and guiding me down the right paths. He is my fortress, my tower of strength, and my protector.
