I was posting on my other blog this morning at www.dougbolton.com, and I realized that I have lost close friends not only in the military, but in life as well.

The two in the military were in peacetime. My best buddy, who had signed up with me to go into the military, died of some kind of crude while in Korea.

The second buddy died right in my own platoon, also in Korea, He suffocated in a honey bucket. A honey bucket is where to locals put their human waste for fertilizer.

These two deaths were extremely hard on me.

When I got out. I went back to college to be a teacher. I got a job in Albany, Oregon.

I lost three students during my career there.

The first one was a car accident. The boy had taken his mom’s car without permission and went on a joy ride. He was only 14 and had no license. As he was driving, he hit same loose gravel and went off the road. He was killed instantly.

The second student died right in front of me in the school. He had a massive brain injury. The last thing he said was, “I can’t see.”

The last one was suicide. He was a troubled kid, who kept getting into fights. I am guessing he didn’t like where he was in life, and ended it all.

So, I lost five people who I cared very much for. This doesn’t even include my own family members who have passed away.

Have you been there? Have you lost friends and family?

You certainly are not alone. Many of us have had to face that.

How do I keep going after all the death I have seen?

  1. I thank God for each and every day I have on this earth.
  2. I love all of my family to the max.
  3. I keep in touch with old friends to see how they are doing. It cheers them up and I cheers me up as well.
  4. I pray for God’s protection which gives me peace and comfort.

__________________________________________

Never let the dark side overcome you into thinking the world is lost. Be strong and know God is with you. He can overcome any fears you may have. He will give you peace and comfort through the toughest of storms.

__________________________________________

Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

Another beautiful day here. Few clouds, and a high of 75. Nothing can go wrong right?

Well, we know that isn’t true. Things can go belly up pretty fast.

I remember horrific stories from the day the twin towers were destroyed. Many dead, and lots of saddened hearts.

However, did you hear some of the miracle happenings?

A woman stopped at a shoe story on her way to work, and was there long enough to miss the danger.

A man made a wrong turn and drove away from the disaster.

A mother had to stay home because her child was sick.

A man was in a car accident. No one hurt, but he is still alive today.

___________________________________________

God was working for many people. These are just a few of the positive stories from that day.

Why did God pick these people to be saved? We may never know. However, everyone of them had their lives change.

____________________________________________

It is hard to comprehend why some things happen. I have turned down the wrong street myself, only to read in the paper the next day about a deadly crash happening on the street I was to be on at the same time as I was going by.

__________________________________________

Here’s what I think…

Thank God for every day He gives you. He still has plans for you.

Never be upset if you are late for anything. There may be a reason.

Love your family more each day they are with you.

Always know that God is near. He is with you wherever you go.

___________________________________________

Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

I have two blogs to write on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Today I got through with my first bog, and decided to go outside to see how my wife was doing on her yard work. MISTAKE!

That was an hour and a half ago, and I just got back.

Love that Lady!

President Biden said this morning that there have been over 200 million first time virus shots given. That is good news. It is rolling in the right direction.

___________________________________________

This day has been interesting. The weather is beautiful and the temperature is supposed to get up to 75. However, by Friday there is a whole week of rain and lower temperatures coming.

___________________________________________

Is your world like that? Do you have good days and then bad days? You certainly are not alone.

There is so much to face. Lost job. You got the COVID-19 virus. Lost relationship. Lost loved one.

That is called storms in our lives. Heavy and violent storms. It is hard, at best, to face them, but if we rely on God, we will be able to see the end of the storms.

He is always there by your side. He doesn’t stop the storms, but he guides you through them.

Never take on the dark side alone. It is just too overwhelming. Pray for God’s help, and ask Him to be your fortress.

Be strong and know that God will never forsake you.

Things are looking better for me right now. The pneumonia has gone away and I am getting my strength back.

___________________________________________

I am very concerned on how our country is being lead. President Biden fell on his way into a plane this last week. It wasn’t a slip It was a complete fall. I pray for him daily. I am pretty sure he will not complete his term as president, and Vice president Kamala Harris will become the president.

Some of the presidents new policies are costing the people deeply. His closing of the pipelines has gas prices skyrocketing. Many people are out of work because of the closings.

A dear friend of mine died suddenly a couple days ago. Totally unexpected. His wife is grieving, and we are too.

Have you ever lost a loved one? It seems to put a halt on many things for the family involved.

An empty chair; no one to talk to, or hug. This takes a long time to get over. I know I have lost a loved one.

What can we do to overcome this sudden storm?

  1. Know that your loved one is no longer in pain and is resting.
  2. Be thankful for the years they were with you.
  3. Don’t try to erase the memories. They are vital to help heal.
  4. Lean on other family. This is the time they want to help you the most.
  5. Connect with close friends. They can be your lifeline.

__________________________________________

Through all the storms we face, God is with us. He knows what we are going through. He knows your pain. He knows because He sent His only son to die for us.

Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!
