Three YearsLooking Back at 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.

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!


Urip Short – Katresnan Hard! Disiapake!

Urip Short - Katresnan Hard & Disiapake

love crossMinggu aku iki ngilingake carane gesang cendhak bisa nalika aku nampa tembung sing siji saka Ladies enom ing klompok sing muda aku makarya karo bab 30 kepungkur, ketemu mati nang dheweke ngarep pungkasan ana esuk. She was 43 lan godhong konco bojo lan 5 anak. The cause of death is not yet known.

Urip cendhak lan kita ora ngerti nalika kita wektu kene bakal munggah. In light of eternity, kita Tetep punika nanging briefest saka kelip-kelip. 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, ditlusur gamblang, utawa anggota bab tradhisi bakal nambani sing jiwo kanggo comfort ing dhisik. Jesus said all of those things are good, nanging ora cukup becik.

Ndeleng, nalika Gusti Allah iku katresnan, Piyambakipun ugi Suci - tegese kabeh bab Panjenengané, pikirane, tembung lan tumindak, wis rampung saka alesan mursid. Only if you meet that measure of perfection would you even be able to exist in His presence, kanggo Panjenenganipun sampurna cahya lan expels kabeh pepeteng. So all it takes to be unable to be in His presence is one microscopic speck of imperfection. "That's impossible", kowe ngomong! 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 "kertu bingkisan" - Gusti Yesus. His hand is extended, kertu marang driji.

Apa kita kudu nindakake iku kanggo nampa sing kertu bingkisan. If we don't take that gift card, banjur nalika kita badan mati, 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 - Yesus padha sing ngasihi kita dadi luwih bilih Panjenenganipun volunteered kanggo njupuk Panggonan kita. God wants us to Love Hard. Jesus said to love God with all of our being, tresna kita tanggi minangka dhéwé, lan tresna rumiyin kabeh Kristen liyane.

Senajan kirim diwiwiti karo crita sedih, News Agung iku Michelle wis dijupuk sing kertu bingkisan akeh taun kepungkur. When her life ended quite unexpectedly last week, dheweke presented ing kertu bingkisan lan lumebet ing ngarsane Gusti Allah Suci selawase. 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:
