If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him? Luke 11:13

All of us have an earthly Father.  For some of us just thinking about our earthly father can cause us to spin out of control.  Sons have been beaten by their earthly fathers and daughters have been molested by them.   Others have been abandoned and still others do not know who their father is.

Our heavenly Father, is not like our earthly father.  He is loving, kind and good.  We are told in the scripture to call him Abba, which translated is like calling Him, Daddy.

For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. Romans 8:15

When we come to Him through His son, Yashua/Jesus we receive a spirit of adoption, and this changes our standing with Him.

For some of us Father’s Day is a reminder of the abuse we received at the hands of our earthly fathers.  The day is a painful reminder of memories we would rather not recall.

The good news and what will set us free is this.  We should pray and forgive, no matter what the hurt is.  If our father is no longer here on earth, we should pray anyway and ask our Heavenly father to forgive, heal and restore.  This is what being a Christian is about.  We can be free of the past, if the son sets you free you are free indeed.  John 8:36

In closing todays Bun.  My father has Alzheimer’s and no longer recognizes me as his son.  My hope is that the Lord will take him in his sleep and set him free.  I also know that I will see him again when we are all gathered to meet the Lord in the air,  for the dead in Christ will rise first.  1Thessaolonians 4:16

I love my earthly father and have good memories of laughter and love, so I am a blessed man in that regard.  Yet, I know my heavenly father loves me and cares for me in ways my earthly father can never match.   Happy Fathers Day to both of them, but first to my Father who is in heaven….

      Glory to God through Jesus Christ who reconciled us to the father of us all.

    • Yes, amen, absolute forgiveness and reconciliation to our Father through Jesus Christ.

      Luke 15:20-23

      And he arose, and came to his father.
      But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him.
      And the son said unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son.
      But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet
      And bring hither the fatted calf, and kill it; and let us eat, and be merry

  2. Psalm 45:6-11

    Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever [One God = Father, Son, and Holy Ghost]
    – the sceptre of Thy kingdom is a right sceptre [righteous reign in the Kingdom of Heaven]
    – Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness [love the sinner, hate the sin]
    – therefore God, thy God hath anointed thee [The Anointed = Christ]
    – with the oil of gladness above thy fellows. [The oil is the Holy Ghost]

    All thy garments smell of myrrh, and aloes, and cassia […fragrances of the fruit of the Spirit]
    – out of the ivory palaces, whereby they have made thee glad […the anointing extended to us]
    – kings’ daughters were among thy honorable women […out of all generations]
    – upon thy right hand did stand the queen in gold of Ophir [the Queen = New Jerusalem, from beyond]

    Hearken, O daughter, and consider, and incline thine ear [The Daughter = The Church]
    forget also thine own people, and thy father’s house [come out from them and be separate]
    – So shall The King greatly desire thy beauty [The King = Yeshua Messiah, Yah-saves, Y’shua]
    – for He is thy Lord; and worship thou Him. […Jesus Christ, our Savior, the only wise God]

    forget your own people and your earthly fathers’ houses, beloved…
    – be Glad that The Marriage Supper of The Lamb is near

    • “forget your own people and your earthly fathers’ houses, beloved…
      – be Glad that The Marriage Supper of The Lamb is near”

      Always glad to think of that, that our Blessed Hope is near.

    Thanks, LA for another uplifting Sunday Bun! This will be my first Father’s Day without my Dad, as some might remember he died in February of this year. When my mother died when I was 10 years old, my Dad became both Father and mother to my little sister and me. He recently had shared with me that several relatives wanted him to put my sister and me in an orphanage. But he refused. My Dad’s love was a shadow of our Heavenly Father’s faithfulness. My dad was far from perfect, and those imperfections showed me how to forgive.
    So, to any single Dad’s out there, many blessings and encouragements! And to all Dad’s out there, remember how important you are to your children!
    Shalom and Maranatha!

  4. 2nd Corinthians 6:16-18
    [addressed to True Christians]

    …what agreement hath the temple of God with idols?
    – for “ye are the temple of the living God;” as God hath said,
    – “I will dwell in them and walk in them” and
    – “I will be their God and they shall be my people”

    Wherefore come out from among them
    – and be ye separate saith the Lord
    – and touch not the unclean thing
    – and I will receive you
    – and will be a Father unto you
    – and ye shall be my sons and daughters
    saith the Lord Almighty.

    Do you claim inheritance from your earthly fathers?
    – whether dynasties, blood lines, estates, or traditions
    – as from founding fathers, church fathers, patriarchs, or archbishops
    – then don’t whine when those also come with generational curses
    – you’d best pulverize your idols, statues, temples, and crypts
    – lest your children rebuild them from shards and plaster…
    – and the demons and enemy angels take up residences again

      Thanks, LA, for Sunday Bun.

      Hi, Nomemoleste, that’s interesting news story, from 2011, about restoring the Aramean Gods’ statues (re your link).

      Wonder if they’ll restore (to the public) the old customs along with them? There are so many esoteric, occult, witchcraft, black magic, pagan, new age, satanic cults emerging in the last few decades. More in recent years than when Anton Le Vay, and before him, Crowley, helped popularize it in the 20th Century. And how prominent some groups are becoming and accepted, by the public (in many nations), as a cult or religion, as if were a minority group – even applying legal rights! (such as that bunch who demanded the erecting of Satan statue a few months back, for e.g.)

      These demon worshippers are no longer hidden or secret with the help of confusing the masses to accept it willfully and made to think the Holy Bible is all fairytale mythology and ancient superstition, and that there is no battle of forces of Good and Light against those of Darkness and Evil.

      The Holy Bible is and always will be the truth (despite whatever I go through – good or bad). Thanks, Abba! Glory to the Living Father in Heaven.

      Happy Fathers Day (USA) to the dads wherever.

      Ps.. Wonder what’s become of the Apollyon statue discovered by the fishermen, a few months back, washed up off Gaza/Israel?

    • reading between the lines…
      – of the media spins

      it’s exquisite poetic irony…
      – that a rapidly corroding bronze idol
      – is turning verdigris green exposed to air
      – that would corrode much faster in the sea
      – calling into question its authenticity
      – kept as just another muslim god of their fathers
      – laid out on a bed of blue-skinned papa smurfs
      – like the blue skinned idol gods of the hindus…

      TRUE….TRUE…..TRUE.

      Funny how all those families were seen in an all expenses paid trip to a Disney land park a few months afterwards! LOL !!!

      Whoops…….forgot about them cameras! ;)

      i guess they were celebrating the very “resurrections” of their own kids back to life…..how heart warming.

      I wonder why that celebration was never in the media ?!?! Hmmmmm. Can someone say…..”A-G-E-N-D-A”.

  6. Corey said

    Excuse me for being a bit off subject here but I really have to say something. I’m coming home this morning in Denver and I suddenly look up into the sky and see the glow of an object as though it were the moon hiding behind all the chemtrails they are poisoning us with this morning here in Denver. The sky in Denver this morning looks to be a horror show of chemtrailing. I’m not sure why I suddenly looked up into the sky like I did. My mind wasn’t even on the sky or anything like that. I just suddenly looked up and the first thing my eyes fastened on was this luminous spot almost trying to peer from behind the chemtrail cloud cover. At first I thought that it is probably just the moon but the moon wouldn’t have that type of appearance of light. I looked elsewhere in the sky and sure enough… the moon was in a totally different direction with a long chemtrail in front of it. It wasn’t the sun because the sun is shining bright this morning somewhat near this luminous spot in the sky. “Soooooo….. what the H*** is this third “light” in the sky?” I asked myself. Could it really possibly be Ni…. cought! cough! cough! …. I mean Pl….. cough! cough! cough! … PARDON ME! I then said to myself – “NO! CAN’T BE! I’M BEING SILLY AND FOOLISH! I’M TOTALLY OFF MY ROCKER RIGHT NOW! … I said to myself. DON’T EVEN GO THERE! But it kept nagging at me. I reasoned that it must be the sun’s reflective rays bouncing off a certain pattern formation of the chemtrails making it appear as though there is a luminous object up there and… you’re being crazy Corey! C’mon! My mind then went to a certain video I saw not so long ago of a person in another state who went outside with his video camcorder and recorded the same thing that I was looking at. He filmed the sun, he then panned around to the opposite side of him and filmed the moon (proving it wasn’t the moon) and then turned the camera on a third luminous object peering out from behind some cloud cover (or chemtrails). It looked exactly like what I saw in the video. I think some of you know where I’m going with this so I probably don’t need to say anymore of what I think it “possibly” could have been.

    I then had the thought that I’ll just wait until I get home and look again because by then, the chemtrail pattern will have changed and if it’s just the sunlight giving off an illusion from the chemtrails, I’ll prove myself wacky and just go to bed. I got home and sure enough… the chemtrail patterns changed but there the luminous spot still was sitting there in the sky… although less visible (which I’m sure was the point of the chemtrails at that particular point in time. Perhaps they are trying to hide this from the eyes of the people with these chemtrails. Then something rather peculiar happened… I saw two black helicopters fly by in the sky. O.K. I said to myself, WE ARE NOW OFFICIALLY ENTERING CRAZY TOWN AND I’M OFFICIALLY A WHACKJOB FOR EVEN THINKING WHAT I’M THINKING!… I said to myself. Whether that has to do with anything or not is anyone’s guess. This was a rather odd morning. Needless to say, the chemtrails are now too thick to see anything. I was going to rip out my camcorder and go outside and start filming this but now there is no point.

    So ladies and gentlemen of the blog… I think I just caught my first glimpse in person of Pl….. cough! cough! cough! … first glimpse of Ni… cough! cough! cough! Sorry… gotta do something about that cough.

    Rather than be dogmatic about it and feel silly later on, I think I’ll let myself believe that it was just the sun’s reflective patterns coming off a certain pattern of the chemtrails in the sky. There… I can sleep easy now. I officially declared myself non-gullible and not paranoid.

    I now return you to regular programming….

    HAPPY FATHER’S DAY!

    • Corey,

      If that “spot of light” really is that close and you are seeing it in broad day light…..Guess how bright it is at night??

      “Chem trails” or not the “brown dwarf planet x system” would have been easily spotted with the naked eye by everyone, let alone astronomers long ago if you are seeing it in broad day light like that.

      It doesn’t just disappear.. It would be moving similar to an inward comet..and easily, easily seen by everyone.

      And if the “brown dwarf planet x system” is that close.

      Where are the perturbations???

      NONE

    • Corey said

      Relax Kirt… You’ll live longer. I already stated that it could be just some kind of odd reflection of the sun’s rays off of the chemtrails.

    • …returning from the outer limits

      No prophecy is revealed by personal opinion…
      – The Spirit of Prophecy dwells in the midst of the prophets

      Malachi 4
      For behold, the day cometh that shall burn as an oven
      – and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly shall be stubble
      – and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of Hosts
      …that it shall leave them neither root nor branch
      [no bloodlines, no dynasties, no statues, no idols]

      But unto you that fear My Name
      – shall the Sun of Righteousness arise with healing in His wings
      – and ye shall go forth and grow up as calves of the stall
      – And ye shall tread down the wicked…
      …for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet
      …in the day that I shall do this, saith the LORD of Hosts

      Remember ye the law of Moses my servant
      – which I commanded unto him in Horeb
      – for all Israel with the statutes and judgments
      – Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet
      – before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD

      And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children
      – and the heart of the children to their fathers
      – lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.

    • Corey…me thinkers thou has too much training and education to blow this (or cough) it off as “maybe?”

      The scriptures say… “the truth shall set you free” unless you just pulled a fast one on US and I will laugh along with others I’m sure.

      That’s the purpose of this blog, to educate, to prepare for what’s coming, to alter the deception, and ultimately win and checkmate the enemy!

      Have a great Father’s Day.

      Hey Corey….

      Been thinking of this since your post above…….are “chem trails”….. REALLY “real” ?? [ cough, cough ]

      i mean, … I don’t see any verses in The Bible about “chem trails”. Corey, … Do you know of any verses about “chemtrails” ???

      NO. Notta.

      Ahhhh. What a HOOT to live on this planet. ;)

      ____

      BTW….Corey, I do know what you described above and how “something kinda looked different”…. I’ve seen that myself before…..
      and yes, I do feel another “purpose” of the chem trailing is to try to obscure things in the heavens. I don’t care that so very often
      people “poo-poo” things like this anymore……..heck, people “poo poo’d” our Savior too. So i just take it with the territory of son-ship!

      As in the case with Noah, he didn’t know what “RAIN” was……..and then it came…..IN ABUNDANCE…….and washed them all away.

      “BY FAITH NOAH, … being WARNED by GOD…..about THINGS……NOT YET SEEN……….” Hebrews 11:7 [ interesting, huh ?? ]

      Can you imagine the scorn?….the questions?….the ridicule?…..the mocking?….”the perturbations” of THAT day ??

      Kinda amazing isn’t it ??? …….WE see it again…….even in our day. “Denial…Denial…Denial”….and I don’t even live in Egypt !!

      YEPPER…JESUS was right about this ……..AGAIN. Guess that makes Him …. a …. cough, cough….PrOphEt !!!! [ like you Corey ;) ]

      And they tried to push JESUS …. OFF A CLIFF too! I wonder, ……was that something “literal” ……or just a figure of speech ??? ;)
      _______

      Corey,… I really don’t know any neighbors personally that have a “Quadra-Billion Dollar-esque” telescope in their back yards
      to see through the junk in the skies……

      But…. the elite have them………..scattered around the globe…….been building them for YEARS !!!!

      ………and “they”…. are Sooooo SCARED of what they know is coming……….that they are building holes in the ground !!!
      ( Revelation 6:15….Isaiah 2:10-22 )

      Kinda ….”prophetic”…….isn’t it !?!?!?!

      SeashoreMary… Nope, I didn’t pull a fast one on anyone. Although toward the end of my testimonial I was considering an add-on such as my car then hit a huge bump in the road and I flew 7,777 feet into the air forward down the road sailing up over a hundred cars and coming down on all four wheels in front of an eighteen wheeler and continuing on forward home. Then I was going to proceed to describe what I did while in the air until I could land and proceed down the road… which was grab the supersize bag of Doritos in my passenger side seat and have a snack to relieve the boredom of being in the air awhile while gazing at the odd glow in the sky.

    • Corey said

      No worries Kirt.

    • Corey said

      Kirk… So I guess I’m in good company here? … Lol! You saw this yourself at one point?

    • kirk Domitrovic said

      Corey…all I can say is that I’ve watched the skies since i was a young kiddo. Back then, there were no “chem trails” to speak of.
      i could watch the sun come up and go down … with unhindered beauty. Obviously, kinda tough to look straight at the sun….
      even today with all the chem trailing that’s done. And telescopes have protective lenses/filters, as do certain cameras and videos.
      But I am no expert when it comes to that stuff. But i have always enjoyed seeing the beauty that JESUS has made for us to enjoy!

      Today, it seems that most nights and mornings…the horizon is covered with “chem trails”….so that you can’t see the sun clearly…
      ….except through a hazy film of “clouds”….that are spread out over the whole of the sky. There have been a number of times
      that the sun somehow “looked” bigger … and that a few times seemed to have a figure 8 type light coming from its’ position in the sky…
      like something else was adding to the light projecting in that area of the sky. And yet other times, I could see “light” in a different part
      of the sky that was quite obvious that it was not the sun itself. Go figure!

      Could that be from the light being changed or altered by the chem trail madness ??
      …………. Yes…very possible….Things that make you say hmmmmmm ??

      When it comes to seeing this “other object(s)” that is/are coming, …. i feel there is something to having an “infra-red” telescope by which
      to see something in that spectrum. There is soooo much “out there” that we can’t really “see” fully even with telescopes, but we can “see”
      the effects on nearby areas of the stars and planets….you might remember how nasa took pictures of Saturn’s Rings “tilting” in different
      angles over several months…as if it was being “pushed” by something else…or how Mars’ “big gash” on the surface has gotten “wider”
      in the last few years….which indicates that it too is expanding…much like the earth’s been expanding. Even the other planets in our solar
      system have warmed up, beginning from the outer edges of our system…some even seem to have increased volcanic type activity seen
      and other “weather anomalies and higher winds” … which fits with what we are experiencing on planet earth today…bigger storms,
      more lightning storms, more floods, more droughts, more famines, more quakes, ….gee wiz…I think JESUS mentioned those “signs”.

      And who can forget how the moon looked a few years ago when it was ’tilted’ very weird… or maybe it was the earth’s effect too that added
      to the “strangeness” of that “phenomena”……remember LA had a segment about it on one of the early watcher videos!

      Or how about the sun coming up…..TWO DAYS EARLIER….i think it was Greenland…and even how the Innuit people can’t go by the stars
      anymore like they did for centuries because they say the stars are somehow “different now”…like they are moving from correct positions.
      Even airports had to readjust their airport runways due to these effects.

      Or consider how light “bends” around those “barely perceived” objects in the coldness of space…because of magnetism. Wild stuff!!
      Scientists do know that magnetism of objects does a lot of things that are still being learned about and experienced. kinda like how we
      have come to learn about the farthest planets in out solar system because of perturbations in their orbits….and that was a very long time
      ago too! Even asteroids that nasa supposedly can’t “see” until they are almost about to come near us. We’ve seen a lot of that in these
      last few years. So something is certainly “different”. The Magnetosphere is getting weaker and that poses BIG problems with CME’s
      from our sun….because that could cause these CME’s to crispy fry the entire earth or massive sections of the earth’s surface…..
      …..and THAT is EXACTLY what The Scriptures say is coming in …..
      ………2 Peter 3:7, 10-12….Malachi 4:1….Isaiah 13:6-16….Zeph 1:14-18….Nahum 1:1-6….Isaiah 24:1-6….Revelation 6:12-17…+ more.

      And I think that “something” is effecting our weather, earthquakes, volcanoes, expanding earth with sink holes, increased methane
      in the oceans and on land …that is killing fish, birds, animals …ALL OVER THE PLANET. It is NOT “isolated” to certain spots!!
      Hosea 4:1-3 and Zephaniah 1:2-3

      The oceans are getting warmer too … partly due to volcanic activity in the oceans that is increasing more and more…
      because the earth’s dynamo in its’ core is going nuts…and causing the earth’s core to heat up…making more fluid magma…
      and that activity we are seeing all over the earth.

      The reality is that a brown dwarf star or a highly magnetized “object” is NOT easy to pick up even with telescopes, Hubble, or other space probes….although i do know they know a lot more than they share with the public so as to alleviate “panic and societal breakdown”.
      It does not seem to “radiate light” as we would suppose…which really has scientists scratching their heads. The closest thing
      they have to compare it to is a “black hole”….from which no light can escape! And that truly demonstrates the power of magnetism
      to the MAX….WOW !!!

      I believe we will see even “stranger” things in the days to come!

      Sooooo…We WATCH. We are READY. We are ALERT.

    • Dom,

      I love how you try to mix things together…

      1) Noah was told VERBALLY by God SPECIFICALLY what was coming.

      Gen 6:17 And, behold, I, even I, DO BRING A FLOOD OF WATERS UPON THE EARTH, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven; and every thing that is in the earth shall die

      Did Yahweh specifically tell you or “prophet Corey” that a “brown dwarf planet x system” is coming???

      “I do bring a Brown Dwarf planet x system upon the earth…..”

      If you are going to warn people about something they have never experienced before, how about the return of Yahshua, not some fictions planet that no true prophet has ever said is coming.

      By the way, it’s been over a year now since that guy in Marshal Masters claimed to have seen the brown dwarf with the naked eye in broad day light.
      So, that means it is one year closer. Which means it is even easier to spot.

      You really believe this guy saw a brown dwarf in BROAD DAY LIGHT with his NAKED EYE and recorded it on low lens video camera over a year ago today and no one else has seen it with a wimpy telescope or the naked eye??????

      Let alone all the amateur astronomers probing the sky every night???

      2) I have always said context determines whether something is literal or symbolic… nice try on the “pushing Jesus off the cliff “ scenario… 

      3) You don’t even need a Mickey Mouse telescope to see thru all that “junk” in the skies.

      Have you looked up into the heavens at night lately??

      Every night I can see all the stars that are supposed to be there with my NAKED EYE.

      If I can see all the stars and they are much, much farther away then a guy who SUPPOSEDLY saw a brown dwarf IN BROAD DAY LIGHT with the naked high a year ago, then it would be no problem for many people to have sighted the brown dwarf at night
      by now with a wimpy telescope and/or the naked eye.

      And by the way, amateur astronomers are noted for discovering many new stars & comets etc….

      The Word of God is pointing to something huge that will cause massive destruction.

      The Bible does not say Planet x…

      The bible does say we will see wars ,which now can include nuclear, and nuclear shelters are built where?

      underground

      We also read about Yahshua’s return. That will be massive destruction.

      Nothing about a planet x system.

      4) Every star has mass, therefore every star has a force associated with it. That is how Yahweh runs the universe. So, if a brown dwarf is as close as claimed we would see perturbations.
      Every astronomer knows this.

      Its only the people that don’t understand this fundamental concept that think otherwise.

    Mine is in Heaven celebrating with my Abba Father, dancing and singing. Oh but that I could touch him just one more time and see his smile just once more…

    I do however feel the Lord’s embrace when I go into that place of wanting and He delivers me from the bittersweet…one day afar off I will get my moment with my dad again.

    Happy Father’s Day mighty men of God!

  9. Acts 16: 28-34
    [regarding the officer in charge of the jail … after a quake]

    But Paul cried with a loud voice saying…
    – Do thyself no harm for we are all here
    – Then he [the jailer] called for a light and sprang in
    – and came trembling and fell down before Paul and Silas
    – And brought them out and said,
    – Sirs, what must I do to be saved?

    And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ
    and thou shalt be saved and thy house
    – and they spake unto him the word of the Lord
    – and to all that were in his house

    And he took them the same hour of the night
    – and washed their stripes and was baptized
    – he and all his straightway
    – and when he had brought them into his house
    – he set meat before them and rejoiced
    believing in God with all his house.

    Never give up hope…
    – who knows what happens on death beds
    – or the wee hours of lonely nights
    – or by way of the Valley of Dry bones….

    Lord be praised!
    – Oh how He loves us….
    – more than we can tell

    Abba may well have white hair…
    – in all splendor and glory indeed
    – and still have a buzz cut haircut
    – no matter the hippy depictions !!

    “All of us have an earthly Father. For some of us just thinking about our earthly father can cause us to spin out of control. Sons have been beaten by their earthly fathers and daughters have been molested by them. Others have been abandoned and still others do not know who their father is.

    Our heavenly Father, is not like our earthly father. He is loving, kind and good. We are told in the scripture to call him Abba, which translated is like calling Him, Daddy.

    For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. Romans 8:15″

    This is one of the best attempts to address the obvious. By and large, the Christian response to the fatherless is to grin/smirk and regurgitate, “Good is the father to the fatherless.” There’s absolutely no thought that someone with an abusive father or and absent father can’t even relate to that statement. And, besides, isn’t God the Father of us all? So, the statement is meaningless, and renders the very word “father” meaningless. (Just to pour a little salt in the wound, you always know that your Father really does know everything you’re up to during adolescence!) Worse yet, there are the pious idiots who spout off, “You have the best father ever! God!” If that’s the case, then all mothers should get divorced so their kids can have “the best Father ever.” Listening to that sort of idiotic drivel does nothing but push people away–in this case, away from the Lord.

    The ONLY thing to say is that our heavenly Father is not like our earthly father. In that respect, the fatherless have a great advantage. We can never lower our expectations of God to earthly standards, because the earthly notion of “father” doesn’t apply to us. It makes life mighty rough until we “go home,” but we have no earthly delusions about our Heavenly Abba.

    Personally, I have a few fond memories of my dad, and some very painful memories. Alas, I don’t really remember him very well. All I heard from other family members was that he was short and had a very bad temper. It so happened this year that the anniversary of his death fell on the same day of the week as the year he died, namely Sunday. Normally, the day comes and goes without fuss, but those years when it falls on Sunday are particularly strange. So, I wrote a short piece on FB about it, reproduced here.

      Yes, I agree w/ you Stephanie!
      LA ~ you touched my heart by your insightful words.No one ever talks about this.And yes Stephanie, I feel as if I want to apologize to you for all the insensitivity,immaturity, and lack of love that has obviously been tossed your way.
      I got another good one for ya…to all the single folk …oh you’re never alone Jesus sleeps with you!As they then walk away w/ their spouse! It is funny to me now that I am older, but when I was young and raising a toddler and child on my own it sure wasn’t. Besides, Jesus was never in my bed!Now I would have a few good and Godly retorts for their lack of character.

Went back to re-read something to share with my husband and they were all gone. At least I couldn’t find them. Had to do with cat being run over by truck.

      – Go, set a watchman, let him declare what he seeth
      – and he saw a chariot with a couple of horsemen
      – a chariot of asses, and a chariot of camels
      – and he hearkened diligently with much heed

      And he cried, A lion: My lord, I stand continually
      – upon the watchtower in the daytime
      – and I am set in my ward whole nights
      – and behold, here cometh a chariot of men
      – with a couple of horsemen. And he answered
      – and said, Babylon is fallen, is fallen…
      – and all the graven images of her gods [the almighty dollar]
      – he hath broken unto the ground.

      O my threshing and the corn of my floor…
      – that which I have heard of the LORD of hosts
      – the God of Israel, have I declared unto you.

      The agents, many of whom were former military members, told Cuellar that they were pained to see so many children and mothers.

      “They said, ‘Henry, no matter how strong we are, we are fathers, we are mothers, we have kids,’” Cuellar said after the tour. “’When we leave our kids at home and come to work, and we see this — it’s hard.’”

      Last week, five immigrant rights groups sued the Obama administration, alleging that children in custody between the ages of 5 and 17 have faced physical and sexual abuse, overcrowding, freezing temperatures, inadequate water and spoiled food.

      And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth

      – and to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle
      – that she might fly into the wilderness into her place
      – where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time
      – from the face of the serpent.

      And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman
      – that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood
      – and the earth helped the woman and the earth opened her mouth
      – and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth

      And the dragon was wroth with the woman
      – and went to make war with the remnant of her seed
      – which keep the commandments of God
      – and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

      quote:
      Unfortunately, most of these kids come from Central America and have to traverse the length of Mexico. Many of whom ride the so-called Beast, which is a train sometimes called the “Beast of Death.” It is a very precarious passage from Central America all the way up into the southern United States. Many don’t make it. Some are murdered. Some are killed through injuries. Some are sexually assaulted….

      It was verified by Border Patrol that during the time these 47,000 unaccompanied minors came across and were detained — between October 2013 and now — that they also arrested 180 convicted sex offenders. So these are the type of people that are traveling with and mixed up with these children….

      [T]he perception that there is no consequence associated with entering the country without documentation or illegally is contributing to this mass exodus of humanity and exposing some of these vulnerable children to some of the worst sort of predators and criminals.

      The very sad thing is that keeping a faceless, voiceless, nameless underclass for the purposes of exploitation, human trafficking, and slavery — has been going on unabated for decades. This is the real America. Sanctioned and institutionalized oppression — at the highest levels.

      I’m for giving our visitors a voice, a name, and a face — showing where their home is — and hopefully helping them return home well cared for with real hope, and not the empty polemics of compromised politicians — that have made a permanent underclass that even though they’ve been in the US for 30 years, still can’t speak english. Adult language learning skills are just not the same as for children. And that’s part of what’s used to oppress them. I believe intentionally.

      Behold the spirit of the false rider of the white horse — slavery and oppression in the guise of rescue and salvation.

    Thank you, LA, for reminding those of us whose father wasn’t the father that God wanted him to be. I wrote this poem as a way of expressing my thoughts on what I wanted my own father to be like, but never did. I am grateful your life was influenced by your fathers reflection as seen positively in how you live for Christ , and are seen by those who know you.

    Reflections of a father,
    Walking hand in hand
    Sharing secrets of a new romance,
    Or building sand castles in the sand.

    Tea parties with a daughter,
    Or taking a son for a spin in his new car
    Reflections of a father,
    Bright or dimming like a star.

    The privilege of raising a child
    is an honor given you
    But it’s also something that your children will teach their kids
    And that’s a reflection of you, too.

    You’re teaching lessons of morality,
    Or sharing mistakes in life that you have made
    Showing your kids you are an adult,
    and don’t measure love with a passing, or failing grade.

    For you see, your example in their life
    Is all that your children might hear or see.
    You shape their mind with every thought
    That ever comes to be.

    For, your life is their reflection,
    of all that your children are
    Your children sometimes become like you,
    And are sometimes left with painful scars.

    Will you be there for your child,
    Ready to listen to all their worries and cares?
    Or, will you turn your back on them,
    teaching them they have nothing important to share?

    I hope , you will as their Father,
    teach your child to be giving, helpful and strong
    And as you walk along life’s roads with each one
    the reflections of you, their father
    will continue to teach right from wrong.

    For , as their Dad ,who walks side by side
    leading the way thru even the muck and mud
    it will be the reflection of who they see in you
    that your child will grow, in the ways of a Father’s Love.

    • Awesome!

      ……………………because He took my very own scars upon Himself….and healed me … and made me whole! :)

      PRAISE BE UNTO JESUS….FOREVER !!!! YAHSHUA is my SALVATION !!!! HALLELUJAH !!!!

    This scripture that L.A. quoted above from Luke11:13 is an interesting one for me. I remember shortly after I got saved that I was still worried that I might still not “make it to Heaven” unless I was baptized witht the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues or another language. That became my main concern in life at that moment. So I diligently pursued God over this in preyer and every scriptural instruction on how to receive this supernatural encounter with God. I wanted to know that I know that I know that I am going to Heaven and not that other place. For about 1 week I pursued and dwelled on this. Then finally one day while standing outside with my thoughts on the creation around me and the new existence I had just stepped into from becoming born again previously, I sensed the very powerful presence of God as though he were standing right beside me and I started speaking for a few short seconds with another language. I do not know what it was I said, but it sure felt as though I was being very adamant about something. It rose up from my innermost being and flowed out of my mouth like water as my soul was lifted into the very heights of complete union with God. I know that sounds rather wacky, but I say all that to say that this is available to anyone who believes. It’s yours for the asking and pursuing. I must clarify that I’ve since learned that the baptism of the Holy Spirit is not necessary for salvation. I was already saved and the Holy Spirit comes to be on the inside of you at salvation, but the baptism of the Holy Spirit that will descend on you is very real if desired. It is a scriptural promise spoken by Jesus himself… “If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more shall your Heavenly Father GIVE THE HOLY SPIRIT TO THEM THAT ASK HIM”?

    “I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance, but he that comes after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worth to bear, HE SHALL BAPTIZE YOU WITH THE HOLY GHOST, AND WITH FIRE:” (Matthew 3:11)

    Elsewhere, Jesus asked if they (the disciples) were baptized with the Holy Ghost “since they believed” (proving that they were already saved of course).

    Very powerful scriptures indeed. Very powerful promise indeed as I found out first hand.

    • @ Corey: Speaking in tongues is, indeed, a gift from God. I prayed for years after I was born again in the Spirit. However, I’ve learned that I had to be patient but once it manifested, I get very excited and flow with it.

      Womack is correct in his teaching video. There’s private tongues and tongues for the congregation accompanied with interpretation in the congregation. I don’t always require interpretation when I privately pray, I just trust the Lord.

      Azureceu, you got the earplugs right.

      And thanks for the ‘baptism of fire’ link. I see there that it lists it as three events but I’m still not sure if any of those are what the friend’s neigbour meant (I don’t think she was referring to Judgement Day baptism of fire – she referring to something for during my lifetime (or at that time we discussed – before death & judgement)… although I have spent much time in The Word (and not just in form of conspiracy/prophecy books, which I spent many years reading, but the Holy Bible) since then than before I, myself, got baptized.

      Ps.. the ref burned the Aussies in their game against Chile!

      Now, with regard to the gift of tongues…

      Maybe it was the Holy Spirit coming in to my life as I often had difficulty reading the KJ Bible? Usually, I would have to read the verses from KJV over again, a few times, to try and get its meaning, which didn’t always happen, because the KJV was printed in a certain tongue which we no longer speak: Proper English.

      At the time, I was recovering from an assault which had me broken up badly.. and boo-hoo-ing about myself and thinking why? why me? why did this happen? and I asked God to grant me wisdom to understand and so, finally, I went to the HB and randomly chose a page and started reading and the very first thing shown was Solomon asking for wisdom (2 Chronicles 1: 10-12). I’d not read that passage before. From that moment I could read the KJV, without having to re-read the same passage repeatedly, and know what I was reading. Then I met a Christian and soon after got myself baptized. Of course, I’ve been boo-hooing again for a few years because of endless dramas and major disappointments and the Devil trying to get me.

      Paul says in 1 Corinthians (14: 19) Yet in the church I had rather speak five words with my understanding, that by my voice I might teach others also, than ten thousand words in an unknown tongue.

      14:21 In the law it is written, With men of other tongues and other lips will I speak unto this people; and yet for all that will they not hear me, saith the Lord.

      14:23 If therefore the whole church be come together into one place and all speak with tongues, and there come in those that are unlearned, or unbelievers, will they not say ye are mad?

      14:27 If any man speak in an unknown tongue, let it be by two, or at most by three, and that by course; and let on interpret.

      14:28 But if there be no interpreter, let him keep silence in the church; and let him speak to himself, and to God.

      14:33 For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.

      I attended this non-denominational church, only a couple of times, which would have a different or visiting pastor, from wherever (either local or interstate or from overseas) who would preach each week to this small group (small, compared to Osteen’s 50,000 attendees – here, there were probably only about 30 people or less). Sermons were given, hymns were sung, and then requests for healing and laying on of hands (I was often asked to stand behind and catch people – i had advantage of height and strength. Nasty seeing larger people dropped by smaller people onto the floor!

      Also, the people would speak, loudly, in tongues.

      As nobody interpreted what whoever was speaking, and there was a particular man who would go into a continuous, what I describe as, hysterical laughter. I know these people were sincere and strong in faith, but these tongues troubled me, particularly this laughing man and so I stopped attending this church (not that tongues was the sole reason for my no longer visiting this church). I had a similar experience before at the Revival Centre where I got baptized – no hysterical laughter, but just about everyone would speak in tongues (except me), all the while the pastor would give thanks and praise to God (in English). Around this time, my Christian friend (whose name was Christian) would also try to impart on me this gift of tongues, as he would break into it at will but follow up with phrase in English (at least whilst in my presence) – not that I ever understood what his speaking in tongues was saying – I only understood his English phrases. I guess, I didn’t receive the tongues as I’ve never spoken or been compelled to speak in tongues. I can speak a broken form of Russian language – i.e. poorly (which may sound like tongues to my dear mum who is very proficient in Russian Language skills)! Perhaps, do English poorly, too!

      This leads to discuss the Apostles receiving gifts of the Holy Spirit as accounted for in the Book of Acts. I think that up until Jesus ministry, the Israelites were especially chosen to preserve and proclaim God’s Word and the Law. Then from Jesus’ time the Word was to be given to the various nations as was instructed for the Apostles and other saints to go out into the world and preach the Gospel, which thus extended to other national tongues (Gentiles nations) other than the Greek, Aramaic, Hebrew which the Apostles and Israelites spoke. That is, other languages found in other nations/peoples elsewhere:

      Acts 2:1 [after Christ’s resurrection] And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.

      2:2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.

      2:3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.

      2:4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

      2:5 And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven.

      2:6 Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language.

      2:7 And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which speak Galilaeans?

      2:8 And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born.

      2:9 Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Judaea, and Cappadocia, in Pontus, and Asia.

      2:10 Phrugia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jes and proselytes*.

      [* proselytes – per Lexicon/Strong’s Concordance/Greek –
      1. a newcomer – a stranger, alien
      2. a proselyte – one who has come over from a Gentile religion to Judaism
      – one who has arrived (at Judaism)
      reference: “http://www.lexiconcordance.com/greek/4339.html”]

      2:11 Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God.

      2:12 And they were all amazed, and were in doubt, saying one to another, What meaneth this?

      From there the apostle, Peter, loudly, gives warnings and affirmation of prophecy (re Joel),
      14:15 For these are not drunken, as ye suppose, seeing it is but the third hour of the day.
      [9am-ish in the morning? I’ve known some alcoholics (in my past) – one who would even take a can of beer with him when he showered, and others who would, at least, wait until midday/noon/12pm before they had their first drink for the day – sorry, just mentioning].

      Anyway, you can read the rest from there in Acts 2.

      So my understanding of tongues is that God [also], and as Paul said, would rather hear five words that he can understand than speak a thousand that he can’t.

      And…

      The apostles would receive gifts of the Holy Spirit (re time of Pentecost), and remember before this time, there were more than twelve – there were also another 70 appointed by Christ (Luke 10:1) whom sent them into every city and place before Jesus would go into them (before the Crucifixion/Resurrection), also given gifts. And probably the 3000 who became believers (at Pentecost re 1: Corinthians above) were also given gifts of the Holy Spirit to proclaim the Gospel and to heal and prophesy.

      And…

      from my understanding of what is spoken of in Acts 2: 1-12… the Apostles were given the gift of communication in foreign languages (without having had the academic training/schooling to speak in other languages of other nations – unlike me whose parents made one sacrifice Saturday mornings playing footy/cricket/skateboarding/surfing with friends and local club and go to bloody Russian School to learn the Russkie lingo. I’d still be attending our little, old, Russian Orthodox Church down from my babooshka’s [Russian: grandmother; butterfly] house and struggle with what the Priest was saying (in Russian, and all the while standing there on our feet, like soldiers at attention, for three hours – no seats or pews, just a couple of benches for the oldies, and lazy kids), and the hymns/Russian choir, and what the oldies spoke (but I could tell by the looks on some of their faces that they were annoyed with some of us kids there – international language, them facial expressions) – but us kids, or I, knew when to make the sign of the cross and bless across ones chest, and ask forgiveness, and at Easter services, proclaim “Christ Has Risen – Indeed, He Has!”

      And

      that the gift of tongues was given for those (at Pentecost) for at that time when delivering the message to the other nations – in their language.

      Of couse, this is my understanding or opinion – it seems pretty clear in English language what the tongues refers to.

      Another experience (actually, a couple of experiences) I had with tongues was when my ex-girlfriend (of Irish/UK origins and a recovering Catholic, Born Again believer, and ex-wife of leader of UK Spiritualist Church – not the Holy Spirit kind but the witchcraft kind). I did not know of this (about her ex-husband) till much later in our relationship, and only after she had arranged him to come to my place to do some work on my car since he was a mechanic by trade. I would later have further costly maintenance issues, and not to mention other almost endless dramas of which are still plagueing me, I believe, as some may have noticed, lately, re my difficulty coping with life). Not that she would be the only one cursing me!

      Anyway, this ex-girlfriend, Annie, whom I had eventually parted with over a year before would continually harass me via phone, text, email, even so far as to graffiti on my house (she called it “annointing”). She would also keep company with my own longtime friends, that I’d introduced her to (so that whomever I visited at home or caught up with at other venues, she would always make her presence) so I ended up having nothing to do with anyone. For over a whole year I did not know or have the company of anyone, apart from my mother. Totally solo. She would harass me even more after I started a new relationship with my last girlfriend. She would attack every day – all hours. Against my wishes, she insisted on coming to my house to collect some money she claimed I owed her (a small sum). I didn’t owe her anything, but to keep peace I agreed to give her a sum – through all these episodes she claimed to have God speaking to her personally and that God was informing her about my new girlfriend in saying (to Annie) that she was a drug addict, alcoholic, had fake breasts, and was the spirit of Jezebel, and that she was just after me for my house/property, and other wicked things about her my new girlfriend claimed God told her personally, but also claiming that God told her I would be successful, and very wealthy – I’ve had nothing but dramas, failures, injuries, illness, debt, and other major stresses. Mostly, not much good happening for me, except for a couple of brief moments of relief a few months back. So Annie insisted on coming over to collect, so I left amount for her in envelope for herself to collect from my mailbox so as she would not spend too much time on my property or confront my mother (who was still recovering from major stroke) and my new girlfriend.

      She arrived, got out of her car (which she against my wishes parked in my yard/driveway) I happened to be outside in my front yard at the time she arrived, and so I collected the envelope and handed to her and told her to leave. She ignored me (as usual) which needless to say, angered me though I still kept my cool and calm. She proceeded to claim i was possessed by devils, because I was telling her only to leave my property. With my patience already being tested, to my further annoyance, she began with her speaking in tongues at me, of which I told her I only understood English language. I had politely and quietly told her, several times, to leave my property. She continued with her tongues and other jibberish statements to the point where I was finally forced to raise my voice and then had to lead her to her car by taking her by one of her arms. She yelled so that neighbours and visitors (to shops across road from my house) would hear that I was “assaulting” her. (Fortunately, these witnesses also heard me tell her to leave my property – several times). She then threatened to go to police and have me arrested for assault. Happy Birthday, Pete! lol

      Nobody from the shops approached or interceded – some just stopped and observed (from across road).

      She finally got into her car and left my property.
      Through this episode, my mum was greatly distressed and told me she thought she was having a heart attack. My girlfriend, who was inside home with my mum, too, was also witness to this and just said, “She’s insane.”

      About a week later, I was confronted by Detectives and other police who wanted to speak to me about “assaulting” Annie. Apparently, I had left bruising on her arm from where I had held it and ushered her to her car. I never wanted to harm her, but her ignorance left me no choice but to handle her in an effort to quickly get her off my property and away from my house. I was more concerned with how her behaviour was impacting upon my mother who was unwell, since she was making such a loud obvious scene. My mother, for the following week, had been extremely concerned about the police threats the ex made. So, yes, the police got hold of me. They wanted to hear my side of the story… I told them the truth, which was vastly different from what Annie had reported to them. They could see that I was a big bloke (6’4″ tall and not a thin swizzle stick), I’d actually told the police that I’d had training in Wing Tsun (the Bruce Lee kind) and that if I was to assault her (or anyone for that matter – if I got the first moves in) and hit her she would not be getting up for a few days or be in a coma – and especially if I’d been pushed over the edge to a violent anger which happened once, earlier in my life.

      I’d only ever, in anger, physically attacked another man (which happened back in my late 20s, many years ago, and only after giving warnings to not touch her. I confronted the individual outside of the venue told him what was what and hit him. We fought and exchanged physical damages, before a band of his friends stepped in and gave me more blows with fists and boots. I was the only one who got up and walked away – albeit severely bruised and battered. I did slap a kid in high school across the face, once, over something childish (at the time). These were the only times I have ever, out of anger, physically attacked anyone. I’d been assaulted on a couple of occasions but I’ve never retaliated and turned the other cheek (and left the revenge and Vengeance is mine, saith the Lord, to Christ). I’ve stepped in when I’ve seen other people in distress to prevent harm/injury, perhaps even death, occurring – things that really had nothing to do with me nor was it a personal reaction – instances where a person was outnumbered, and a guy bashing a woman, and to prevent innocent standbyers caught in the middle of an occurrence from being injured. Perhaps, to non-believers, I have been in situations by which they would warrant a physical revenge or retaliation – but I believe in the above words of Christ so have never sought to try to hurt anyone since this episode in days of my youth. Not against my ‘friend’ who smashed a glass in my face, and later assisted in my breaking wrist/hand effectively ending my career in music and aspirations; nor my own brother who has been violent against me over the years, physically hurting me, bruises, broken ribs etc. I didn’t even take police action against these later individuals – though many told me to. I did see police after hospital re glassing/broken wrist event.. but they told me to find the culprit myself! Nothing was ever done nor any apology received or compensation. I was rewarded with bitterness and disappointment and heartbreak – I believe I am pretty much over all that. It no longer constantly plagues my heart or mind as it had done for many years afterward. Now it’s just a matter of discussion once-in-a-while but without the bitterness and anger. Other things to be bitter and angry about since! lol Not that I want to be bitter or angry.

      Besides, I’ve never possessed the heart or mind or desire to be a fighter or get into blues because of fools before or since this incident I just mentioned. Never been my style, regardless of a little martial arts training or because of my physical size. Gentle giant, I try to be. But no doubting, there have been times where for a split-second I’ve thought of violence against someone who deserved it. As said, fortunately they were just a though and only for less than a second, which is still long enough to consider such things.

      My father told me never to yell at a woman and never to hit a woman – regardless. And I would never hit a woman. I think I have honoured that – except for perhaps a loud disagreement once or twice over the phone, and one or two moments with my mum over the years, which I am remorseful – still, nothing to be proud of.

      Back to my “assaulting” Annie the police expressed some judgements of Annie, and eventually told me that I was well within my rights to use a reasonable force to remove her from my property. No action was taken. Eventually, I would later get a restraining order from the court effected against Annie.

      In saying this, I know poor Annie does believe in Christ. However, her gift of tongues and God speaking to her, personally, is/was misguided – especially, the accusations about my new girlfriend that she was a drug addict, alcoholic, fake breasts etc (she may possibly have got the about being with me for my property part correct – that’s another story). Although I’m not an expert on whether a woman has breast implants or not, I was certain that my partner did not have fake ones – this made easy for me to identify as she is a very thin/slim physique. A blind man would notice this claim as false!

      So, further to this long story…

      Gift of tongues to babylon with indecipherable and meaningless words? God speaking to her in person but informing her with lies and other false accusations? Personally, I don’t believe she was imparted with any gift of tongues, and private conversations from God who gave her false information? Me not accept that this was the Holy Spirit at work, or the true Living God speaking to her in person. I tried several times to contact her pastor (whom I’m met a couple of times) to command Annie to leave me be, and to give me details on a couple, who were also ministers/pastors, Annie had apparently been regularly seeing for “spiritual therapy” and assisting in her personal conversations with God, so I could tell them what they were doing and saying to Annie was wrong and not helping. Instead the pastor told me not to contact him and I never got the word to these therapists. I’ve never wished for any harm or revenge on Annie, and I hope she does find true peace and that God gives her His help.

      Sorry about the length of this account. I should probably spend more time with other people rather than do all my talking here – but I don’t know too many people, and the few I do know are not interested in anything I have to say (especially the Bible stuff), so conversation is very limited (and I’m hopeless at small talk).

      God Bless!

      Marana tha**!

      excuse the poor grammar and spellling errors…

      and other wicked things about her my new girlfriend claimed God told her personally

      should read as… ‘and other wicked things alleged about my new girlfriend that she claimed God told her personally.’

      probably heaps of errors there… you are all small enough to figure it out! :-)

    SHERIFF’S DEPUTIES, VOLUNTEERS TEAM UP TO ASSIST DISTRESSED IMMIGRANTS

    The Brooks County Sheriff’s Department, struggling to keep up with the large numbers of distressed immigrants trekking through the county, has now partnered with a nonprofit group to patrol the region.

    The partnership with Texas Border Rescue adds 10 people to a search-and-rescue team recently bolstered by 15 new volunteer deputy sheriffs.

    That doubles the number of people patrolling the vast, rugged terrain.

    Chief Sheriff’s Deputy Benny Martinez says the Border Patrol’s elite BORSTAR rescue team was no longer enough for responding to the increasing number of distress calls.

    Officials have recovered around 300 bodies of immigrants during the past two years, although that’s believed to be just a fraction of the total number who’ve died trying to circumvent the Border Patrol checkpoint near Falfurrias.”

    More undocumented come through on visas and don’t go back, than cross illegally.

    LA, sorry to hear about your dad. I went through the same exact thing. In my opinion, Alzheimer’s is one of the most debilitating, horrible diseases. I first noticed my dad was having memory problems a few years ago. He wouldn’t remember our phone conversations from one week to the next. He would ask the same questions again and again. I would go over to see him and he would call me Pete. One day I was the plumber, or FedEx, or whatever was in his mind at the time.
    Towards the end I visited my dad in the Alzheimer’s unit of the nursing home with up to 15 residents. I visited at least 3 times a week. I got to know just about each and every one of the Alzheimer’s residents at the home, their likes, dislikes and hobbies. I would bring special treats in for some. I had game apps on my iPad for one, a cash register with play money for another, set up secretarial items for another, etc… These are things they loved and seemed to know and kept them busy. This disease is one of the most heart wrenching I have ever seen. There were nights when I would sit next to my dad holding his hand with tears running down my face as I witnessed his decline. Thank goodness PBS here had on Lawrence Welk and Gaither re-runs which he loved to watch and sing with…other than that he had little joy.
    LA, hang in there. You’re both in my prayers. God is watching over you both and will be your strength. I am so sorry that you and your family have to deal with this. My hope is God helps us find a cure for this awful terrible disease that takes away the mind of our loved ones. My prayers are with you always.

      If there’s any more consolation, it’s probably this…from the victim’s perspective everything is “just fine.” It’s like they’ve been taken to heaven mentally but not physically, yet.
