Today is Veteran’s Day. I am a veteran from waaaay back. I was in the service from 1959-1962. I am proud to say that I served, and I thank all of you who are serving, or have served. The sacrifice you did for your country is honorable.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

It seems like many people do not appreciate the military and what it does for us. I hate to think what our country would be like if we didn’t have a military. Can you speak German, or Japanese?

The great generation fought hard for our freedoms, and they won. I had three uncles who fought in WWII, against both the Germans, and the Japanese. Two earned the Purple Heart.

__________________________________________________________________________________

It was hard for me to serve. I was a Christian and had feelings about being a conscientious objector. I was raised in a Quaker church that was against going to the military.

Because of me thinking my uncles were heroes, I overcame that feeling and enlisted anyway.

___________________________________________________________________________________

Be sure to thank everyone you know that is a veteran. It will make them feel proud that they served.

___________________________________________________________________________________

Remember:

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.

I missed posting on Monday. My apologizes. Bad hair day.

I can say this is true for almost all of us, we resist authority, and find it hard to submit to others.

We want to choose what is right and what is wrong ourselves. We try to run our own lives without God. We hold off God ourselves. Here are some ideas to overcome that:

  1. We need to re-think our priorities.
  2. We can’t make our own rules. Our own rules can’t handle it.
  3. Be consistent.
  4. Don’t be one way way all week, and then Godly on Sundays.
  5. What we really are before God, is how we should act when no one is looking. ___________________________________________________________________________________

Humility is the key to righteousness. We need to humble ourselves before God and obey Him. We need to acknowledge that He is our authority, and submit to Him.

When we follow God we are free from sin, and free to earn righteousness.

________________________________________________________________________________________

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.
  8. Do we act one way all week and then change on Sundays?
  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?
  12. God uses adversity to develop us.
  13. What idols do I have in life that taking me away from God?
  14. We receive so many words of fear in the age we live in.

Giving into authority and submission. is one of the hardest things for people to do. We want to choose what is right and wrong for ourselves. We try to run our own lives.

______________________________________________________________________________________

What we really need to do is submit to the will of God. Being humble is the key. We try to hold off God ourselves.

Here is what we need to do:

  1. Rethink our priorities.
  2. Don’t make our own rules, because our own rules can’t handle it.
  3. Be consistent.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

What we REALLY need to do is how we act before God, is how we should react when no one is looking.

______________________________________________________________________________________

Take you own inventory on your life. Are you submitting to God, or you trying to walk on this earth on your own?

Today I am going to share some quotes I have picked up over the years for you to ponder:

  1. What do I do if a problem comes to me? Nothing! I need to go to God and pray.
  2. Do I think more about myself, or do I think more about God?
  3. God has abundant blessings for us, but the power of Satan is against us.
  4. How much Time do I spend reading God’s Word. Not nearly enough.
  5. A tea cup sitting along a coast line can be filled with water when a wave comes in. But just think how much water there in the ocean. That is how much love God has for us.
  6. Flee the bad things, and seek the righteous ones.
  7. Not everyone in your church is pleasant.
  8. How has God worked in unseen ways in me? What work has He prepared me for?
  9. We need to reach out to those with afflictions to show them ways to rid themselves from them.
  10. What work does God want me to do? What excuses do I use to not do them?
  11. I love my children and my grandchildren, but they are loved much more by God.
  12. There are billions of ways to be wrong, but only one way to be right.
  13. God does not make robots, but we become robots because we program our minds to walk down the path that heads away from God.
  14. We need to set a day aside to worship God through prayers, devotions, and reading the Bible.
  15. God is everywhere. You can be with God when you fish, travel, lie in bed, but to worship Him we should be in His Holy House to worship Him with others.
  16. Pagans can be very religious, but not follow the true God.
  17. There is no such things as a metaphor about same sex marriage from Genesis to Revelations.
  18. In the olden times one goat is sacrificed, and the other is the “Scape Goat,” who is released into the desert.
  19. Satan loves to nip away at us until we are beaten down, and our faith is fading way.
  20. Every person has an assignment from God.

Back in Salem, Oregon after eight days at the Oregon coast. It was very relaxing. beautiful sunsets, great food, and good company.

______________________________________________________________________________________

It’s back to reality! I was hoping the world would straighten up while I was gone, but just the opposite is happening. There are truly thousands of illegal immigrants crossing our southern border EVERY DAY! Many them were arrested on the spot for having drugs. Others were known terrorists. I can’t grasp the mental capabilities that our president has to think this is fine.

_________________________________________________________________________________

Have you also been frustrated with what is happing around you? I hear you! It is difficult, at best, to feel there is much hope in our world right now.

What we need to remember is that our God is in charge. It doesn’t seem right some of things He seems to be allowing right now, but He has a plan for us, and we need to trust Him.

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.

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.

Going to have lunch with a friend after I finish this post. Applebees, is having all you can eat boneless wings. We are going to see if we can rung them out of them. 🙂

Went to see a foot doctor today, for hammer toe. It is a painful curling of my big toe on my right foot. He gave me some ideas on how to help, plus going to an insert specialist to get insert put in to help.

________________________________________________________________________________________

I was very saddened by the speech President Biden gave the other day. It certainly wasn’t a speech to unite our country. Made me upset, and I am a democrat. He needs desperately to try to bring our country together not further apart.

________________________________________________________________________________________ No matter what you party connection is we need to stop this horrible division our country is in, and try to work out our differences.

________________________________________________________________________________________

How are you doing? Had life stepped on your feet and given you pain like I have? It is tough to be positive in our world today. Inflation, Border crises, food prices. Gas prices, and the list goes on.

I think we need to regroup and realize that God is in charge. He knows what is going on. He is not happy, but He allows us to make up our own decisions and most of then aren’t good right now.

My Pastor yesterday told us the end times are coming and we need not worry if we are Christians. I find comfort in that.

If you are not a Christian turn you life over to God right now and find peace.
