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!


Vita brevis, – Amor autem amo,! Praeparari!

Vita brevis, - Amor autem amo, & Praeparari

love crossDominica brevis, admonitus de vita potest quod accepi feci virgines in iuvenis coetus circiter 30 annos, intra domum ultimum Jovis mane repertus est mortuus. Fuit 43 et dimiserit virum suum, et 5 filii. The cause of death is not yet known.

Vita brevis, hic nescimus, quando erit tempus. In light of eternity, fulsit hinc brevissimus sit mansionem. 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, nam illustratio est quaerere, venerantur et traditionibus suis, et de animarum solatium, in interitum eius. Jesus said all of those things are good, sed non satis est.

Videte, Sed Deus est ipse Amor,, Et quoque sancta - : quod significet omnia quae apud illum, cogitationes,, verba et actiones,, quod fit ex causa justa. Only if you meet that measure of perfection would you even be able to exist in His presence, quia perfectum est lux, et tenebræ eam expellat:. So all it takes to be unable to be in His presence is one microscopic speck of imperfection. "That's impossible", inquis! 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 "donum card" - Jesus. His hand is extended, card est in manibus eius,.

Quid nobis faciendum sit ipsum donum accipere. If we don't take that gift card, et cum corporibus mori,, 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 - qui dilexit nos, quemadmodum Nostri ultro quod tanto. God wants us to Love Hard. Jesus said to love God with all of our being, diligere proximum tamquam seipsum,, alii christiani et amare valde.

Cum post inchoatum cum hoc triste fabula,, Magnus novus est ut multis ante ipsum donum Michelle cepisset. When her life ended quite unexpectedly last week, et intrasset ante ipsum donum obtulit Sancti Deus. 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:
