Three YearsLooking Back at Having CES

Wow!

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.

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!

Kinabuhi mao ang Short – Love Hard! Kinahanglan Andam!

Kinabuhi mao ang Short - Love Hard & Kinahanglan Andam

love crossSunday Napahinumduman ako sa kon sa unsang paagi mubo nga kinabuhi mahimong sa diha nga ako nakadawat sa pulong nga ang usa sa mga batan-ong mga babaye sa usa ka mga batan-on nga grupo nagtrabaho ko sa bahin sa 30 ka tuig ang milabay, nakit-ang patay sulod sa iyang balay niadtong Huwebes sa buntag. She was 43 ug ang mga dahon sa likod sa usa ka bana ug 5 mga anak. The cause of death is not yet known.

Kinabuhi mao ang mubo ug kita wala makaila sa diha nga ang atong panahon dinhi mahimong sa. In light of eternity, sa atong pagpuyo dinhi lamang sa briefest sa mga pangidlap. 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, sa pagpangita alang sa paglamdag, o pagbayad sa pagtahod ngadto sa mga tradisyon nga pagtagad sa ilang mga kalag ngadto sa kahupayan sa pihak nga kinabuhi. Jesus said all of those things are good, apan dili maayo nga igo.

Tan-awa, samtang ang Dios mao ang Gugma, Siya mao usab ang Balaan - nga nagpasabot nga sa tanang mga butang mahitungod sa Kaniya, hunahuna, mga pulong ug mga aksyon, ang gibuhat gikan sa usa ka matarung nga motibo. Only if you meet that measure of perfection would you even be able to exist in His presence, kay siya mao ang hingpit nga kahayag ug kini naghingilin sa tanan nga kangitngit. So all it takes to be unable to be in His presence is one microscopic speck of imperfection. "That's impossible", kamo nagaingon! 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 "gasa card" - Si Jesus. His hand is extended, ang card sa Iyang mga tudlo.

Unsa ang atong buhaton mao ang pagdawat nga ang gasa card. If we don't take that gift card, unya sa diha nga ang atong mga lawas mamatay, 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 - sa mao usab nga si Jesus, nga nahigugma kanato sa hilabihan nga Siya miboluntaryo sa pagkuha sa atong mga dapit. God wants us to Love Hard. Jesus said to love God with all of our being, paghigugma sa atong mga silingan sama sa atong kaugalingon, ug sa paghigugma sa pag-ayo sa tanan nga uban nga mga mga Kristohanon.

Bisan tuod kini nga post nagsugod uban sa usa ka masulub-on nga istorya, sa Dakong News mao nga gikuha ni Michelle ang nga gasa card sa daghang mga tuig na ang milabay. When her life ended quite unexpectedly last week, siya gipresentar sa gasa card ug misulod ngadto sa atubangan sa mga Balaang Dios sa walay katapusan. 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:
