Just what the title says.

Три године – Осврћући се на Имајући ЦЕС


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.

Уживање у Охио време & залазак сунца

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!


Живот је Кратак – Љубав хард! Будите спремни!

Живот је Кратак - Љубав хард & Будите спремни

love crossНедеља сам се подсетио како живот може бити кратак, када сам примио вест да је један од младих дама у групи младих радио сам са око 30 пре година, пронађен је мртав у свом дому у четвртак ујутро. She was 43 и оставља мужа и 5 деца. The cause of death is not yet known.

Живот је кратак, а ми не знамо када ће бити горе наше време овде. In light of eternity, наш боравак овде је само најкраће од блицева. 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, у потрази за просветљењем, или плаћање поштовање традиције ће третирати своје душе удобност у загробном животу. Jesus said all of those things are good, али не довољно добро.

Видети, док Бог је Љубав, Он је такође Свети - то значи да све о њему, мисли, речи и дела, се врши од праведника мотив. Only if you meet that measure of perfection would you even be able to exist in His presence, Он је савршен за светло и протерала све мрак. So all it takes to be unable to be in His presence is one microscopic speck of imperfection. "That's impossible", кажеш! 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 "поклон картица" - Исус. His hand is extended, картица у своје прсте.

Оно што морамо да урадимо је да прихвати тај поклон картицу. If we don't take that gift card, онда када наша тела умру, 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 - Исти Исус који нас је волео толико да је добровољно да се наше место. God wants us to Love Hard. Jesus said to love God with all of our being, волимо ближње као себе, и да дубоко волимо све друге хришћане.

Иако овај пост почео са тужном причом, Велика вест је да Мишел узео да поклон картица пре много година. When her life ended quite unexpectedly last week, она представила поклон картицу и ушао у присуству Светог Бога заувек. 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:
