Tri godine – Osvrćući se na Having CES


I was looking at a picture on my phone the other day, cleaning off those that have been transferred to the computer. I came across a picture I took of 2 men ice fishing on Indian Lake. 20130209_130638 I didn't know why I had kept that particular photo. Then I saw the date - 02/09/2013.

I didn't know it, but my life was about to be altered forever. The next day, while doing yard work, I moved a concrete splash pad a couple of feet. Unknown to me was that a disc in my back, the L4/L5 disc, had ruptured. It was pushing forward, into the Cauda Equina, the place where your spinal cord splits off into the root nerves that run throughout your body below your waist. As it pushed, the nerves compressed.

You may read about Cauda Equina Syndrome on another page of this site. I have adapted to a new life, a different life. So this is a celebration! Another anniversary in the books and I am still living a useful life - loving my wife, working, teaching, mentoring and striving to leave a positive & challenging legacy for that time when I no longer can do the things on this list.

Uživanje u Ohio Vrijeme & zalazak sunca

Beautiful sunset in Ohio, provided by GodAfter work this evening, we decided to get out of the house for a while and enjoy the wonderful weather today. We went to a park near our house. A lot of people were out playing basketball, soccer and walking/running on the paved trail. We were the slooooooowwwwww walkers.

We did take a nice walk. It wasn't a long one, but we walked to a bench part of the way around the trail. We sat and watched the people out and about, a CPD helicopter (an MD500) circling around the I-71 / Polaris Parkway interchange and of course the sunset.

And what a sunset! Staying until about sundown, look at what the Lord provided to cap off our enjoyment (note: some color correction was done in Blender). What a show!

Take care & God bless you!


Život je kratak – Love Hard! Pripremljenost!

Život je kratak - Love Hard & Pripremljenost

love crossNedjelja sam podsjetio kako kratkog života može biti, kada sam dobio riječ da je jedan od mladih dama u grupi mladih radila sam sa oko 30 prije godina, pronađen je mrtav u svoj dom prošlog četvrtka ujutro. She was 43 i za sobom ostavlja muža i 5 djeca. The cause of death is not yet known.

Život je kratak i ne znamo kada naše vrijeme ovdje će biti gore. In light of eternity, našeg boravka ovdje, ali najkraće treptaja. What will become of you when your body ceases to function and your consciousness opens its eyes on forever? Most people believe that being a good person or doing more good than bad things, u potrazi za prosvjetljenje, ili plaćati pogledu tradicije tretirati svoje duše udobnosti u zagrobnom životu. Jesus said all of those things are good, ali ne dovoljno dobro.

Vidjeti, a Bog je ljubav, On je također Holy - to znači da sve o njemu, misli, riječi i akcije, se vrši od pravednika motiv. Only if you meet that measure of perfection would you even be able to exist in His presence, jer On je savršen svjetla i protjeruje sve tame. So all it takes to be unable to be in His presence is one microscopic speck of imperfection. "That's impossible", kažeš! You are right about that. So in His Love, He sent Jesus to live the perfect life we're incapable of living. By doing so, Jesus was able to take our place in God's judgement. Jesus stood in our place and took our punishment. Now God is offering us a "poklon kartice" - Isus. His hand is extended, karticu u Prsti.

Ono što moramo učiniti je da prihvati taj dar kartice. If we don't take that gift card, kad naša tijela umru, our soul cannot be in God's presence - it doesn't have the gift card to pay. It is really that simple. Taking the gift card means our soul is reborn to be molded by God into the character of Jesus - isti Isus, koji nas je ljubio toliko da je prijavio da se naše mjesto. God wants us to Love Hard. Jesus said to love God with all of our being, Volim naše komšije kao mi, i da vole duboko svim ostalim hrišćanima.

Iako je ovaj post počeo sa tužnu priču, Veliki vijest je da Michelle uzeli taj dar karticu prije mnogo godina. When her life ended quite unexpectedly last week, predstavila poklon kartice i zauvijek ušli u prisutnosti Svetog Boga. What about you? Will you make the choice to take Jesus' offer? It is simple and will change your life and afterlife. How do you do that? Check out these links:
