Just what the title says.

tres anos – Mirando cara atrás, Tendo 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.

Aproveitando o clima Ohio & solpor

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!


A vida é curta – Amor Difícil! Estea preparado!

A vida é curta - Amor Difícil & Estea preparado

love crossDomingo eu fun lembrado de quão curta a vida pode ser cando recibín a noticia de que un dos mozos mulleres en un grupo de mozos con quen traballei sobre 30 anos, foi atopado morto dentro da súa casa na última xoves mañá. She was 43 e deixa cara atrás un home e 5 nenos. The cause of death is not yet known.

A vida é curta e non sabemos cando o noso tempo aquí será de ata. In light of eternity, a nosa estancia aquí, pero é o máis breve dos flashes. 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, busca de iluminación, ou pagar o respecto ás tradicións tratará súas almas para o confort na vida despois da morte. Jesus said all of those things are good, pero non bo o suficiente.

Ver, mentres Deus é Amor, Tamén é Santo - isto significa que todo sobre el, pensamentos, palabras e accións, está feito a partir dun motivo xusto. Only if you meet that measure of perfection would you even be able to exist in His presence, pois El é luz perfecta e expulsa todos os tebras. So all it takes to be unable to be in His presence is one microscopic speck of imperfection. "That's impossible", dis! 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 "tarxeta de agasallo" - Xesús. His hand is extended, a tarxeta entre os dedos.

O que temos que facer é aceptar que gift card. If we don't take that gift card, a continuación, cando os nosos corpos morren, 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 - o mesmo Xesús que nos amou tanto que El se ofreceu para tomar o noso lugar. God wants us to Love Hard. Jesus said to love God with all of our being, amar o noso próximo como a nós mesmos, e amar profundamente todos os demais cristiáns.

Aínda que este post comezou cunha historia triste, A gran noticia é que Michelle tomara ese tarxeta agasallo hai moitos anos. When her life ended quite unexpectedly last week, presentou a tarxeta de agasallo e entrou na presenza do Santo Deus para 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:
