Just what the title says.

Three YearsLooking Back at Having CES


Estava buscant en una imatge al telèfon l'altre dia, la neteja de les que s'han transferit a l'ordinador. Em vaig trobar amb una foto que vaig prendre de 2 els homes de pesca de gel a Indian Lake. 20130209_130638 I didn't know why I had kept that particular photo. Llavors vaig veure la data - 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.

Thanks for stopping by ~ David

Enjoying the Ohio weather & sunset

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!


La vida és curta – Hard Love! Estigui preparat!

La vida és curta - Hard Love & Estigui preparat

love crossDiumenge em vaig recordar del curta que la vida pot ser quan vaig rebre la notícia que una de les joves en un grup de joves que van treballar amb aproximadament 30 Fa anys, va ser trobat mort dins de casa dijous passat al matí. Ella era 43 i deixa enrere un marit i 5 nens. The cause of death is not yet known.

La vida és curta i no sabem quan el nostre temps aquí serà de fins. In light of eternity, la nostra estada aquí no és més que la més breu de flaixos. 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, la recerca de la il · luminació, o pagant el respecte a les tradicions tractarà les seves ànimes a la comoditat en la vida futura. Jesus said all of those things are good, però no és suficient.

Veure, mentre que Déu és Amor, Ell també és sant - Això vol dir que tot sobre Ell, pensaments, paraules i accions, que es fa per un motiu just. Only if you meet that measure of perfection would you even be able to exist in His presence, perquè Ell és la llum perfecta i expulsa totes les tenebres. So all it takes to be unable to be in His presence is one microscopic speck of imperfection. "That's impossible", vostè diu! 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 "targeta de regal" - Jesús. His hand is extended, la targeta en els seus dits.

El que hem de fer és acceptar que la targeta de regal. If we don't take that gift card, després, quan els nostres cossos moren, 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 - el mateix Jesús qui ens ha estimat tant que Ell es va oferir a prendre el nostre lloc. God wants us to Love Hard. Jesus said to love God with all of our being, estimar al nostre proïsme com a nosaltres mateixos, i estimar profundament tots els altres cristians.

Encara que aquest missatge va començar amb una història trista, La bona notícia és que Michelle havia pres que fa targetes de regal molts anys. When her life ended quite unexpectedly last week, presentar la targeta de regal i va entrar a la presència del Sant Déu per sempre. 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:
