They Spy on You & I...Just Look Behind the Bush

In Honor of Memorial Day 2009, the American Ba...Image by BL1961 via Flickr

To start off the Christmas season at a nice pace, I'm sure the Congress is really concerned about the welfare of the United States and us Americans. It looks like spying is a new scheme they're playing on the deception front. This could be the month (2009) where the Illuminati will begin their EVIL agenda to usher in their One World Order. First to depopulate the earth and implement Codex Alimentarius. The only solution don't rely on the government for anything. Be self-sufficient and independent. Grow your garden with organic, heirloom seeds, clean water is a must, live off the land and most important, first and foremost, trust in the Lord Jesus Christ, talk to him daily on prayer, and read your Bible as well it will give you strength and wisdom to know what to do.

All the Bush Administration wants for Christmas is Big Brother running amok, so they can wish everyone the Grinch who stole Christmas. BEWARE! They plan to take your mind through the Television, so learn to read a book instead, know what is going on around, don't trust the mainstream media they will only lie to you because the government told them to. There's lot of great things you can do for your neighbor. For Jesus said, the greatest commandment was to Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, mind and strenfth and the second the same like it love your neighbor as yourself where all the law and the prophets are fixed.

Peace on Earth, Goodwill Towards Men

Makin' a List and Checkin' it Twice

Colored pencils manufactured by Berol. This im...Image via Wikipedia

I'm listening to Christmas songs on KLOVE my favorite radio station. You can get a FREE bumper sticker. I love their quarterly devotional it has lots of wisdom and teaching.
I said I wasn't going to do this, but it's only a short list: (OK, so I have a weakness for stuff. I love giving most of all.)

THE LIST:
one movie ticket to see The Chronicles of Narnia
1 leather bound journal
Prismacolor Watercolor Pencils
12" round pizza pan (not just for pizza anymore)
Lots of gifts and food to give to the poor
my secret miracle (they happen every day!)
Peace on Earth, Goodwill toward men (The way that Jesus wanted it)
A good Christmas dinner (We're having English pot roast and gravy)

Other than that I'm a happy camper!

Snow Day!

Robert Frost, 1913.Image via Wikipedia

No mo school, no mo work
I'm off, happy as a lark
When old man winter comes callin'
On my way home I'll be crawlin'
So grab your blanket and a warm mug
while you're at it give someone a nice hug.

OK, so I'm not Robert Frost!

Have a Happy One! Later!

God Bless!

Good Grief Charlie Brown What's All the Hub-Bub about Christmas?

Isaiah's Lips Anointed with FireImage via Wikipedia


Christmas time is here, again! Charlie Brown even knew the true meaning of the season. Let's all love one another like God done for us 2,000 years ago when he sent His only Son Jesus as the greatest gift of His eternal love. OK, so I like the occassional egg nog, the beautiful nativity scenes (my sister's church has a live drive-thru nativity every year)and giving (It more blessed to give than to receive-Isaiah 58:7-8; Proverbs 19:17). This season let's remember those who are less fortunate. Not just on this holiday but everyday.

God Bless Us Everyone!

My Church

Ecce Homo (Behold the Man!), Antonio Ciseri, 1...Image via Wikipedia

My church website is up and running. The Lord has really blessed us many times over it's been countless. Jesus is the gift who keeps on giving. In a few days it will be Thanksgiving. We have alot to be thankful for. Yeah I know the real Thanksgiving, but it doesn't hurt to give thanks to the one who gave His life for mankind. No, the pilgrims didn't show their true gratitude towards the Indians. If it weren't for the Indians there would be an America today. It would still probably a peaceful hunting ground and still not have God in it. May we all realize that God loves all races and cultures and come to the knowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord and can save all if they come to Him and make Him Lord of their life.

Blessed is the Nation whose God is the Lord. America needs Jesus. We would less to no problems if we lean on Him and make Him King. It will have a take drastic measures for that to happen and for people to believe that Jesus is real and alive. I hope they remember God, REPENT, and get back to the roots from where we came from. It would do us all good to love one another and be thankful for all the good things that God through Jesus Christ has given us.

May your day be blessed!

Research...Research....Write...Write...My Mission

I've been away for a while. I needed to catch up on some stuff. I've been so involved in my class project lately. It a report I'm researching on the Tay-Sachs disease. The NTSAD has been a great help in my research efforts. I've been changed by this because it affects children from the time of birth. It's a genetic condition that attacks the gene structure. What's sad there is no cure, only prevention. Children that are affected with the disease live only to about 4-to-5 years of age. So little time, not given a chance to live life. Learning alot from these children tells me cherish each and every moment of everyday like these dear little children and their families because you never know when it will end. I was so moved by a father journey with his daughter, Rachaeli it touched my heart forever. There's a hope that someday there will be an answer to sickness and death. That will one day be a place much different from this place. If you trust that there is a living God who sent His Son to suffer on the cross, die and was resurrected to give us eternal life. If you believe then one day you'll see each other again. There will be no more death no more.

God Bless.

Just a Note-Flu Season Ease

Just to let you know that maybe have been some confusion and little education about the threat of an avian influenza outbreak. Not to worry according to medical resources it's not as bad as the media let's it out to be. And I think President Bush's announcement a while back said he would declare marshall law in the U.S. if such would happen. That's just alot of bunk to try and get us all uppity.
Be sure to bulk up on your Vitamin C, better yet Ester-C. Besides haven't we been there done, done that already. Sometimes it's always good to get out the mask. And always wash those hands after every visit ;).

Stay well!

Yule Tiding Again

Thanksgiving will soon be here. If some of you wonder why we celebrate turkey day there is an historical account in 1676 of how thanksgiving happened. Pretty soon Christmas will follow. And you know what that means? Time to SHOP! I hope that others who oppose of Christmas, you don't know what you're missing. Remember the greatest gift of all who made it all possible. Miracles still happen. Even when those want to forget, there are still some of us have the light of Jesus in our hearts. Behind all the decorations, the wrapped gifts and the rush is the one gift that was given to all of us. The one that was hung on a tree 2,000 years ago. As you sit down to your holiday dinner table give thanks for all the blessings that God has given. That the true meaning of Christmas lives with us all through the year.

God Bless Us Everyone!

Bridge Day Weekend

I'm BACCKKKKKK!!! Bridge Day was Saturday October 15. An annual event at New River Gorge Bridge in Fayette Co., WV. That's where a lot of nutty people from all over come and jump over the highest bridge in the U.S.
The following week I did my clinical training in the medical office. I had a great time. Boy, those drug reps really know how to butter up the doctor. I think I gained 5 lbs. easy. It's the first nine weeks and I got my grade for the quarter. I got the highest G.P.A. in the class. I've been wanting for months to remove a pile of roofing shingles from my backyard. I finally got my prayer answered. A clean-up crew come out and cleaned up with a garbage truck. I also got another pray answered! I got on a pay roll so I don't have to worry about where my next meal is coming from. The Lord does work in mysterious ways. Don't He?

Walk in His Love....

Later!

A Humble Part of Me.

When I first start this blog I had a tough time on what I was going to blog about. There were quite a few things that I'd liked to have talked about. Things are were close to me and others that always been a part of me. Then I thought like most of us have a kind of journey we travel while we're here in this life. I call mine a redemption journey because I hope that in the end that I will be truly redeemed from the state of this mortal life to a life that was meant to be. Most of all of the redemption that Jesus' sacrifice finished 2,000 years ago.

I was reading Rachel Scott's website today. What she lived in the short 17 years of her life had touched millions of people than what another person could do in their lifetime. I keep journals of my works, but Rachel's has to be the most inspiring memorial of compassion. At times I think of Rachel and Columbine. I think that she's in a better place now. And a day that when it rains I think of Rachel's Tears falling down from heaven to us. In here prayers she also hopes that we carry the flame of compassion over the earth just as Jesus hoped it would.

Be of Good Cheer

Sorry I missed you Friday, but the fire alarm rang and I had to leave in a hurry. It's a monthly practice. I wonder if we'll ever be ready for the real thing? Seems like we are never really prepared for anything. When it does happen it's not what you expect. One thing to do in an emergency is to always remain calm. I am brought to remember the words of Jesus when He said,"These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world." (John 16:33). It's raining here and I've come down with a cold. I'm feeling better now. After a few cups of chamomile tea I'm doing fine. The weather is warm and the leaves on the trees are changing color. Over the weekend the big earthquake hit Pakistan, India and parts of Afghanistan. They're still counting the lost (28,000). I'll be going to clinical training next week so I'll be away from class. I maybe working the same week at another job. I'll be studying for a big medical terminology test in the next two days. I'll say a prayer.
Music in my list this week:
1. Lordsong
2. FFH
3. Casting Crowns
4. MercyMe
5. David Crowder Band

God Bless Ya!

The Cable Guy

Larry has a different way of saying what he wants to say when he says it. His momma was an Elvis Impersonator and looked a little like "Ralph the Carpenter" on Green Acres? :? He you're friendly GIT-R-DONE comment"tater" by quote an grew up in a Christian home, loves the U.S.A., Miss September and making odd (clearing throat) commodities from Playdough. He plans to run for President and with what we got in the White House already, well, it just makes me nervous. As Larry puts it they talk the talk, but walkin' the walk it's like trip and stumble like Ray Charles in a pumpkin patch.

The Road We Choose

There's sometime in our life we have to make decisions. Think about it. There are those we make what we will eat, wear, places to go, job hunting, etc. But did you ever think of the most important is the one we make when we will leave this world when we die. The decision will be the one of how we will spend the rest of our lives in eternity. What road will you choose? It will be one of the important and critical decision that you'll ever make in your life.

Zoning Churches

As much of our nation drifts further and further from its religious heritage, one of the side effects has been the increasing opposition to churches seeking to build new facilities or increase the size of the one that they already occupy.

In recent years, opponents of churches have had some success in shifting the opinions of government decision makers from viewing a church as beneficial to communities to viewing them as a “drain” on city treasuries since they occupy land that could be used to produce tax revenue for government coffers. In fact, current Supreme Court precedent offers pornography outlets more protection with government zoning decisions than most churches have!

T.C. (redemptionsong): Well, speaking as for my church we give our hard earned money in tithes and offerings plus what we do for the community than what the U.S. government would do. What they don't remember in the heyday of the churches in the old days there were large numbers of people who attended services and it was up to the churches to help the poor and contribute to their communities and kept the gospel going. Praise God that He's made it possible to keep the doors open for the gospel. Without Christ we can do nothing (John 15:5).

Please pray for wisdom in the many legal battles ahead.

My Prayer List

My prayer list is ever moving. Whatever is lead by the Holy Spirit.
Currently:

Pray that the leaders in Washington, D.C. make wise decisions in the U.S. government for the welfare of the American people.

Pray for the residents of the Gulf Coast (Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama)that have been so devastated by Hurricane Katrina. Many have lost loved ones, homes, jobs, everything. Pray for those in the path of Hurricane Rita. (II Corinthians 8:14)

Pray for the families of those killed in Iraq and Afghanistan this week. Pray that the Holy Spirit will comfort them, and give supernatural peace. (Philippians 4:7)

Pray for the safety of our troops in Iraq, Afghanistan, and around the world. Pray that God will protect and guide them daily. (Psalm 5:11)

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem according to Psalm 122:6.

Pray for revival worldwide according to II Chronicles 7:14. (I Thessalonians 5:17)

Pray for the victims of anti-Semitism worldwide who have been touched by the hatred of bigotry. Pray that God will heal the wounds, both physical and psychological. Only God can heal the hurting hearts. (Psalm 140:6)

Pray for the America that we will return to our roots as a Christian nation and the Lord God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob be our sovereign God to rule in the foundations of our society and be the Great Nation as she is.

Life in the Boonies so Far


So far as of today, I've been going to school for the pass 2-months at Carver Career Center in the Medical Transcription program. The instructor tells us we're being trained as editors in the medical field of health information management. Hopefully, I can use this advantage for my writing career. I would like being an editor. I hope to be working soon. I need the money for gas to get to school and buy food, vitamins and other needed commodities. Seems most of my money goes to gas and soymilk, one to fuel my car and one to fuel me and those neurons. My routine each day begins at 6:00 AM. I say a prayer and read some from my Bible before starting the day. You know it does help when you're going to take a test on that day. It's been proven. Praise the Lord! It's Fall and the trees are beginning to turn their vibrant colors here in West Virginia. My Uncle Johnny who use to come here in the Fall time from Florida just to see the foliage. I've also been involve in an art project and I'm writing a book and a family history. I guess you might say I have this secret hobbie of genealogy and history buffing (Well, guess that isn't a secret anymore). My most unique, colorful ancestor was Asher Crockett (no relation to Davy). He was in the Revolutionary War and was at the Battle of Cowpens (the roughest battle of the war, there were many loses) and at Yorktown. I'm listening to Charles Billingsley, George Owens, Vickie Yohe, Aaron Neville, Aaron Slaughter, Ralph Stanley and Jack Johnson in my current music list. Charles Billingsley has an awesome voice. I have his Charles Billingsley, "Secret Conversation"" CD on my Christmas list. I'm glad it's the weekend. I'll say goodbye to September. It's the 1st day of October tomorrow. Another month come and gone. It goes by so fast on the highway of the past. October is the time of Rosh Hasahanah and Yom Kippur. Many blessings for the New Year to my Jewish friends. That's all for now. Back to business!

The Passion at Paradise Island

The w:Guyandotte River as viewed downstream fr...Image via Wikipedia

A friend told me about this place called the Passion Trail at Paradise Island, West Virginia. Yes, it's an island near the Guyandotte River in Logan County (in Hatfield & McCoy country). Each year many people attend this attraction 4 times a year (Easter, Memorial Day, Labor Day and Christmas) to journey on the passion trail of the life of Jesus Christ. If you want something very different I suggest this wonderful experience. While you're there visit the Almost Heaven Gift Shop and 7th Heaven Snack Shop. To get directions to Paradise Island visit the website for more information. I love to camp out and they have accommodations for the happy camper. Check with the website for availability.

Let's not Jump to Anything

Well, I should have known that is was a bad rumor going around about the gas hike in the state of West Virginia. Although it may just happen. The oil mongols and the media are playing around with the issue and they have agendas. Can we beat the system, or be sitting ducks? It won't always last forever (the oil that is). I'll have my bicycle handy.
Speaking of bikes this guy take his sport to heart. The 9-11 USA Cyclist, Don Boehly plans on cross country starting on 9-11 and ends 9-11-2006 in New York City. So far to Date: Grand Total 11,505 Miles to Huntington, West Virginia in 29 States. Do I sense bicycle sales going up in the next month or so?

The Gas Miser is Back!

Ok, here it is folks! As of 12 noon EST in Charleston, WV gas went an all time HIGH. Can we consider ourselves lucky than some countries. The Netherlands are paying close to $7.00 ($6.48 per gallon). Or let's all move to Venezuela. There they only pay $0.12 a gallon. Better yet why don't we all go on strike and hitch up our team of horses that will show the big wigs we mean business. It's in poor taste that the big oil companies would do this in the event of a national disaster. Oh, well it's time we look at alternatives like the methane burning engine. Either way we're all in the big stink!

A Letter to Jesus Christ

Dear Jesus,
I've been wanting to write this letter to you in relation to everything that has happened in the past 10 years. The world has changed so much since I was born. It a wonder that I've turned out O.K. and then some. I think where most of the changes began after the time when Israel became a state on May 14, 1948. After 10 years, I was born. Not very long afterward in the year 1962 the Supreme Court ruled that prayer to be removed from public schools. This was a time before I ever started school. I didn't have a chance to speak on my rights to say prayer. I do remember saying the pledge of allegiance one last time in my second year of grade school. I was really uncertain about my life would take a turn in the later years. Don't let anyone tell you that America and live without the God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob. Ever since the changing of the U.S. Constitution and the call for removing any references to God's law and not obeying it we've ever since been in trouble. Since the removal of prayer in school was the result of Columbine and many other schools of today face the pain and sorrow of not knowing God in their lives and their homes.
Since America had been a nation many enemies have seen to it to destroy our freedoms. The most important is our freedom in worshipping the one true God who gave the same Ten Commandments to Moses on Mt. Sinai. Todays laws and society were built on the foundation of this freedom. Those who penned the Declaration of Independence put their lives on the line so that we could live in freedom. America the same as Israel has always been attacked because we are a nation that loves our liberty and justice. Many nations have disagreed. We still have our priviledge to live in a free society. These attacks are becoming more fervent from the times of the Reagan Administration and the Iran Contra scandal in the 1980's and into the 1990's with bombings in New York City and Oklahoma City. We've suffered deceit in our government since the Bush Administration. Our sleeping giant hadn't awaken from our idolatrous slumber, until the tragedy of September 11, 2001. After a short time we went on as nothing happened. It is said that America is a 10-day nation. It seems that it's so. Then to cover up the internal attack on America Bush declared war on Iraq. A war that still goes on to this day without cause, which has killed thousands of more innocent people. We talk alot of moral values, but do we know where to begin? We've forgotten the most important thing which is mentioned in Colossians 3:1-25.
As for me as I have reached my life to this point I've grown closer to you and your Word. All the tragedies and catastrophes that have happened everywhere your Word that remains true has come to past. That no matter what-if they remove all physical evidence of your Word they can't take it from my heart. Even when the mountains fall and the seas rage on you're always there. You said you'd never leave us nor forsake us. How long will your mercy be upon America? Your patience is beyond understanding. It says in Psalms 33:12 - Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance. I've had a dream that if every home in America lived for the LORD just imagine what a place it would be. Even in these times of trouble we face now it's not going to get any better. There is hope in you. It will have to be up to each of us to make that most important decision in our lives before this life is over for good. These things are to come to past and the end of this age will move on into eternity. I'm looking forward to the Day that you will return and create a New Heaven and a New Earth. And, there will be no more war, no more.

Love,
Your Child

As of Today, So Far



So far I've been passing my exams for my M.I.S. class. Medical Terminology is a breeze. When I go to the computer to do my typing test I go to the internet instead. I'm a blog hound and love to write. There's a challenging place where you can brush up on your typing skills. It's called learn2type.com. Hopefully I can boost my typing speed up before I leave the class. So far I'm at 52 gw.p.m. to the 60 gw.p.m., I need to have before I leave the class. I have to discipline myself more about priority stuff.
I've always been fascinated by the Shroud of Turin and have been trying to find some good photos. For some of you who don't know what it is, it's believed to be the burial shroud of Jesus Christ and according to scientists some heat source had imprint the image on the cloth. Possibly the divine power of the Almighty God to raise Jesus from the dead. Is this what Jesus looks like? It's just one of the greatest mysteries to exist. In other words He does exist. The Gospels and the Book of Acts tell of His Resurrection. Amazing!
I've been doing alot of the cooking lately at home. The reason is my mom is disabled, and I live with her, and take care of her do lot of the errands and chores around the house. She is diabetic and has rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. (Fiddle playing). I've taken an interest to healthy cooking, organic foods, collecting unusual recipes and gadgets. My favorite kitchen tools are a good stainless steel fry pan, deep sided all-purpose baking pan, a good cutting knife and microbe-free cutting board, microplane or hand grater, magic bullet, measuring cups and a spatula. I've been working on what is the best in weight loss. I found a secret to this by 5 simple steps:
1) get calcium (along with Vitamin D and magnesium is good)-best list: Collard greens, kale, butternut squash, calcium fortified soymilk, orange juice, white beans and dried figs.
2) use smaller plates (time to downsize those supersized meals)
3) get the mineral-Chromium (natural source in calf's liver, yuck! and wheat germ-good in fruit smoothies, see #5)
4) get out and play more-Exercise! (at least 20 minutes outdoors everyday. Sunshine is good for you as a source of Vitamin D, see #1. Remember to use sunscreen.)
5) Add more fruit (lift weight some bananas, citrus, apples and berries)
On a lighter note, have you heard of ugly dolls? Are they from another planet? Take a look here. They're rather cute in an odd sort of way.

Hurricane Katrina Risky Business

My concern after the U.S. government evacuated the survivors of Hurricane Katrina to other states, is that they didn't think of the consequences that will follow. There is risk of the spread of disease, particularly West Nile Virus and even chlorea. Maybe they should take more precaution as to quarantine. It's just a thought and a safe one.

If anyone would like to donate in helping out survivors of Hurricane Katrina go to the Red Cross , Salvation Army or Feed the Children. If you like to volunteer go to Volunteer Match for more information.

The Big Easy is Hit Hard


Nowadays it seems like it never ends with all the devastating storm. During the summer months we were hit with the news of the big tsunami tragedy in S. E. Asia. Now it's hit home in the states namely, Louisiana (New Orleans), Mississippi and Alabama. I'm sure in months time we will feel the re-precussion of all this. These people are in my prayers. I got relatives who live in Mississippi. WE here at home hope to hear from them soon. I think God is trying to tell us something. Jesus said that before His return for His church he warned of things that would happen on the earth. He mentioned it in the Olivet Discourse in Matthew 24 about the birth pangs which all of this would be more frequent and with more intensity. There will be also signs in the Heavens recorded in Luke 21: 25-26. But don't give up hope. Just look up your redemption draws near.

Tribute to Billy Graham


Billy Graham hadn't had a crusade in New York City since 1957. Now it seems strange that his career of evangelizing the world ended there July 2005 at Flushing Meadows Park. As Billy steps down his son, Franklin will keep the fire of the Gospel going. By the end of the three-day Crusade nearly 9,000 people had confessed Christ as Savior and Lord.If this is his last crusade in the U.S., he will be truly missed. For more updates go to the BGEA. If you have a loved one serving in the Armed Forces in Iraq or Afghanistan, they have a special package to send them that will encourage the soldiers. Be a special blessing and lend a helping hand.

What if you got an invitation from Jesus Christ?

This is one of the best book. It's about a man who accepts an invitation to dinner at an Italian restaurant by a perfect stranger who happens to be Jesus Christ. You got to read the rest to see how it turns out. It will change your life.

While we're on the subject what would you talk about if He invited you to dinner?

You Go Girl!

Since the publication of the "Da Vinci Code" book there's has been alot of controversy about this fiction in regards to what is separated from fact and fiction. If any of you haven't read about it by now.It's been a menace to Christianity. So, that it has caused confusion to so many people of the authenticity of the life of Jesus Christ. Now the book is going to be made into a movie. If it's not enough to drive even further what's so sacred into the dirt. Protestors have confronted Tom Hanks to the point they're not going to take it anymore.

Hanks faces protest over 'The Da Vinci Code'
IANS
LOS ANGELES: Tom Hanks faced protestors, including nuns, as he began filming for the movie adaptation of Dan Brown's best-selling novel "The Da Vinci Code" in Britain.The demonstration took place on Monday outside Lincoln Cathedral - which is doubling for London's Westminster Abbey - where religious leaders only agreed to allow filming after the movie's producers made an $180,000 donation, reports the Internet Movie Database. Hanks, who will only be in Lincoln for two days, was chauffeur-driven the short distance from his five-star hotel to the historic location - and he briefly waved at a small gathering of fans who vied with demonstrators for his attention. The cathedral's dean, The Very Reverend Alec Knight, has dismissed Brown's 20 million-selling book as "a load of old tosh", but he was unable to turn down the offer of filming that gives priceless publicity to his spiritual home. However, demonstrators outside the cathedral took exception to Brown's questioning of their religious beliefs, and were led in a 12-hour prayer vigil by Catholic nun Sister Mary Michael.(http://www.newindpress.com/ )

When it comes to Hollywood really bashing Christianity and actors will do just about anything, you lose your respect.I guess I'm still miffed at the critics not giving 'The Passion of the Christ' the recognition it deserved. If you want my advice in making good movies read the Good Book there's lots of writing material if you like a challenge. It's a real shame that real talent is gone to waste.

Words from the Wise

If we don't remember history we are doomed to repeat it. Oh, please not again!
Why aren't we listening?

"Should any political party attempt to abolish Social Security, unemployment insurance, and eliminate labor laws and farm programs, you would not hear of that party again in our political history. There is a tiny splinter group, of course, that believes you can do these things. Among them are . . . a few Texas oil millionaries (is this sounding a little too familiar?) and an occasional politician or businessman from other areas (This scream Enron doesn't it?). Their number is negligible and they are stupid."-Republican President Dwight Eisenhower, letter to his brother, Edgar, Nov. 8, 1954

With that said, I still wonder why Bush has led people to believe He speaks for everyone. I'm an American and a Christian and as far as I'm concerned Bush and the corrupt government is not. It bothers me that he thinks that Israel should be divide. It's amazing the U.S. has took a 360 degree turn from being Israel's allie to sleeping with the enemy. One thing for sure you don't mess around with God's land and the apple of His eye. (Read Psalm 83:1-4) From the http://www.jpost.com/ Despite assurances to the contrary...Jerusalem is on the auction block. Encouraged by the fact Israel has been forced to adhere to the Road Map while Abbas has been treated with kid gloves, Palestinian leaders have set their sites on Jerusalem.
It was no accident that PA President Mahmoud Abbas accompanied by Secretary of State Rice held a press conference in front of an imposing picture of the Mosque of Omar on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. Mr. Abbas and his PA cronies want it ALL!Emboldened by success, PA Prime Minister Ahmed Qureia makes no attempt to disguise his new-found assurance that the Quartet responsible for the Road Map plan will eventually force Israel to make yet another concession - and relinquish Jerusalem to the PA.
Qureia said, "We are telling the entire world, today Gaza and tomorrow Jerusalem. Today Gaza and tomorrow an independent Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital." And he's not kidding!
Prime Minister Qureia is adamant that hostilities towards the Jews will never end until Jerusalem is in Palestinian hands. "Without Jerusalem, there will be no peace," he says.

The U.S. is putting pressure on Israel, read the story www.haaretz.com/hasen/spages.604617.html.

With the recent bombings in London these guys will go to any length to get what they want. On a much lighter note, time is running short for them. Jesus is coming back, believe it or not. All I have to do now is clear my mind and tell others of the good news of the Gospel of Christ and everything's gonna be alright (Remember the 1970s song by Al Green).

Pray for Israel, Our Troops in Iraq and Afghanistan and a revival in America.

Vacation Bible School Week


I went to my regular Wednesday bible study. It was rather engaging. We were studying John the 11th chapter. This is about the Raising of Lazarus and the Resurrection. I get excited and I love discussion about Jesus Christ. He's the only person in history to have ever come back from the dead. During the discussion, the believers of that day like Mary and Martha had a strong faith and trust that Jesus was the promised Messiah. In the last day, Jesus will return and take his church away. This is called the Rapture, or caught away. Not convinced? Well, let me tell you a story.


A University professor challanged his students with this question. "Did God create everything that exists?" A student bravely replied, "Yes he did!"
"God created everything?" The professor asked.
"Yes sir", the student replied.
The professor answered, "If God created everything, then God created evil, since evil, exists, and according to the principal that our works define who we are, then God is evil."
The student became quiet before such an answer. The professor, quite pleased with himself, boasted to the students that he had proven once more that the Christian faith was a myth.
Another student raised his hand and said, "Can I ask you a question professor?"
"Of course", replied the professor.
The student stood up and asked, "Professor does cold exist?"
"What kind of question is that? Of course it exists. Have you never been cold?" The students snickered at the young man's question.
The young man replied, "In fact sir, cold does not exist. According to the law physics, what we consider cold is in reality the absence of heat. Every body or object is susceptible tostudy when it has or transmits energy, and heat is what makes a body or matter have or transmit energy. Absolute zero (-460?F) is the total absence of heat; all matter becomes inert and incapable of reaction at that temperature. Cold does not exist. We have created this word to describe how we feel if we have no heat." The student continued, "Professor, does darkness exist?"
The professor responded, "Of course it does."
The student replied, "Once again you are wrong sir, darkness does not exist either. Darkness is in reality the absence of light. Light we can study, but not darkness. In fact we can use Newton's prism to break white light into many colors and study various wavelengths of each color. You can not measue darkness. A single ray of light can break into a world of darkness and illuminate it. How can you know how dark a certain space is? You measure the amount of light present. Isn't this correct? Darkness is a term used by man to describe what happens when there is no light present."
Finally the young man asked the professor, "Sir, does evil exist?"
Now uncertain, the professor responded, "Of course as I have already said. We see it everyday. It is in the daily example of man's inhumanity of man. It is in the multitude of crime and violence everywhere in the world. These manifestations are nothing else but evil. To this the student replied, "Evil does not exist sir, or at least it does exist to itself. Evil is simply the absence of God. It is just like darkness and cold, a word that man has created to describe what happens when man does not the absence of God. God did not create evil. Evil is the result of what happens when man does not have God's love present in his heart. It's comes when there is no light." The professor sat down. The young man's name---Albert Einstein.

Well our disccussion got into deeper things that God has emotions just like we do. He created all of us and know all about us. Our emotions come from him. It's our turning away and rejection that separates us from Him. If you ever read that God hated, was angry and was grievous. It was of our disobedience. Even when we hate our brother we're the same as a murder. God sent His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ to die for our sins on the Cross. His victory our death gives us eternal life in Him. If you believe in tomorrow trust in the Lord Jesus Christ and be saved to live with Him in a safe, perfect world forever. Sounds to good to be true, then read and see for yourself at www.blueletterbible.org.

What's Cookin'?


I'm more of a loner in life, but it's nice to make new friends. To get people to love you is show them that you love them by baking them some cookies and sharing them. That's a conversation starter, especially the one's with a special secret ingredient.

They're called Friendship Cookies and they're a cinch to make.


All you need is:
1 stick of butter, softened (no substitutes)
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 Domino organic sugar
powdered sugar (confectioner's sugar)
1-1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1 pinch of love

Cream butter and sugar together until smooth and fluffy. Add flour and salt, blending to make a smooth dough. Carefully fold in 1 pinch of love. Press dough into ungreased 8" pie pan. Bake 15-20 minutes at 350 degrees, or until lightly browned. Remove from oven and sprinkle with powdered sugar. Cut into wedges while warm. Yield: 8 large or 18 small wedges. Wrap them in a nice basket and offer some to your friends. Try one for yourself, too.

The Conference

I've been going to school for about a week now. I'm still developing a new website with the help of a company, www.StoresOnline.com that helps people to build a career on the internet. I had no money for the training but the speaker, Doug Thompson an ex-Hollywood stuntman helped me out. I'm on my way to building my career in stock illustration and I may consider another website if this does fairly well. I'm excited! I'm looking forward to next Saturday.

First Week of School and Some Other Cool Stuff

This week I started back to school at Carver Career and Tech Center. I'm training as a Medical Information Specialist and have joined the AAMT (www.aamt.org). I've found a really cool illustration site, www.illustrationfriday.com. My artwork is on the sidelines for the moment until I finish classes. I live and breathe art. It's part of my life. My recent project in progress is imagery of the Bible and Christ. I'll keep you updated on the progress and how it's coming along.

Magic Pill Big Business, Big Deal

It's been a big headache for me in finding a "magic pill" that really work to keep you healthy. Thanks to the FDA it's even harder. I came upon www.greatestvitamintheworld.com, see for yourself about his claims that if you tell at least 20 other people you get $1000.00. Is it for real?

The Ten Commandments and Our American Law

I just got through reading a very eye-opening and informative book called "The American Prophecies" by Michael Evans (www.jerusalemprayerteam.org). Basically it says if America doesn't stand with Israel in their time of need we are cursed as a nation. President Bush said a recent speech he wanted to divide Israel to appease the enemies of Israel (the Arabs). If President Bush gets his way he will plunge America into utter chaos. When you mess with God you're asking for it. We're already in trouble with groups wanting to destroy our freedoms. Some of them being the ACLU, Freedom from Religion Foundation and other who filed lawsuits to remove public displays of the Ten Commandments from various federal, state and local government buildings. These groups cite the "separation of of church and state" to justify their efforts to eliminate these displays on public property. www.Wallbuilders.com provides lots of proved data gathered over time in the effort to give evidence that America was founded on Chrisitianity and that the Ten Commandments play a pivotal role in the shaping of our nation's law and history. If your American rights of freedom and liberty are being denied you can contact www.telladf.org.

Parable of the Fig Tree



Thursday, July 14, 2005


This is my first entry. I live in Charleston, West Virginia. According to statistics we have lost the most in population than any other state. One main reason due to unemployment. Officials here are planning to bring jobs into the area. Just how they have a job on their hands (no pun intended). My life is surrounded by certain events from the time I was born to the present. I was born ten years after Israel became a nation in May 1948. The fig tree was just beginning to bloom. I'm referring to the parable spoken by Jesus Christ in Matthew 24. From the time Israel came into existence, America has gone through changes and one of them is a decline in our culture. In our century alone most biblical prophecy has been fulfilled. The trouble with us now we tend to ignore the consequences. So far, in my lifetime in 1962 the Supreme Court had ordered prayer out of our schools. Our faith is still under fire. California lawyer Michael Newdow sued the U.S. Congress that the phase under God in the Pledge of Allegiance was declared unconstitutional (www.aclj.org). Newdow is still at it again as of this posting.
