Tri roky – Ohliadnutie za Mať 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.

Počúvanie Ohio počasie & západ slnka

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!

Život je krátky – Láska Hard! Buďte pripravení!

Život je krátky - Láska Hard & Buďte pripravení

love crossNedeľu som si spomenul na to, ako krátky život môže byť, keď som dostal správu, že jeden z mladých dám v skupine mládeže Pracoval som s kolesom 30 pred rokmi, bol nájdený mŕtvy v jej dome minulý štvrtok ráno. She was 43 a zanecháva manžela a 5 deti. The cause of death is not yet known.

Život je krátky, a my nevieme, kedy náš čas tu bude až. In light of eternity, náš pobyt tu je ale na kratučký bliknutie. 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, hľadanie osvietenia, alebo platenia úctu k tradíciám bude liečiť svoje duše pohodlie v posmrtnom živote. Jesus said all of those things are good, ale nie dosť dobrý.

Vidieť, zatiaľ čo Boh je láska, On je tiež svätý - to znamená, že všetko, čo o Ňom, myšlienky, slová a činy, sa vykonáva zo spravodlivého motívu. Only if you meet that measure of perfection would you even be able to exist in His presence, lebo On je dokonalý ľahká a odvádza všetku temnotu. So all it takes to be unable to be in His presence is one microscopic speck of imperfection. "That's impossible", hovoríte,! 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 "darčekové karty" - Ježiš. His hand is extended, karta v prstoch.

Čo musíme urobiť, je uznať, že darčekové karty. If we don't take that gift card, potom, keď zomrie naše telá, 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 - Ježiš, ktorý nás miloval natoľko, že mu ponúkol, aby sa naše miesto. God wants us to Love Hard. Jesus said to love God with all of our being, milovať svojho blížneho ako seba samého, a hlboko milovať všetky ostatné kresťanov.

Hoci tento príspevok začalo so smutným príbehom, Skvelá správa je, že Michelle sa za to, že dar karty pred mnohými rokmi. When her life ended quite unexpectedly last week, ona predstavila darčekové karty a vstúpil do prítomnosti svätého Boha navždy. 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:
