Just what the title says.

Three YearsLooking Back at Having 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.

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!

Buhay ay Maikling – Pag-ibig ng Hard! Humanda!

Buhay ay Maikling - Pag-ibig ng Hard & Humanda

love crossLinggo ako ay mapaalalahanan ng kung paano maikling buhay ay maaaring maging kapag Nakatanggap ako ng salita na isa sa mga batang kababaihan sa isang pangkat kabataan nagtrabaho ako sa tungkol sa 30 taon na ang nakalipas, ay natagpuan patay sa loob ng kanyang bahay noong nakaraang Huwebes umaga. She was 43 at nag-iwan sa likod ng isang asawa at 5 mga bata. The cause of death is not yet known.

Buhay ay maikli at hindi namin alam kung kailan ang aming oras dito ay magiging up. In light of eternity, ang aming paglagi dito ay ngunit ang briefest ng 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, naghahanap ng mga paliwanag, o nagbabayad paggalang sa mga tradisyon ituturing ang kanilang mga kaluluwa sa ginhawa sa afterlife. Jesus said all of those things are good, ngunit hindi sapat na mahusay.

Tingnan, habang ang Diyos ay Pag-ibig, Siya ay Banal rin - na nangangahulugan ang lahat ng bagay tungkol sa Kanya, mga pananaw, mga salita at mga pagkilos, tapos na mula sa isang matuwid na nagpapagalaw. Only if you meet that measure of perfection would you even be able to exist in His presence, para Siya ay perpekto liwanag at ito expels lahat ng kadiliman. So all it takes to be unable to be in His presence is one microscopic speck of imperfection. "That's impossible", sasabihin mo! 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 "gift card" - Hesus. His hand is extended, ang card sa kanyang mga daliri.

Ano mayroon kaming gawin ay tanggapin na gift card. If we don't take that gift card, pagkatapos ay kapag ang aming mga katawan mamatay, 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 - ang parehong Hesus na mahal sa amin upang magkano na nagboluntaryo Siya gumawa ng aming lugar. God wants us to Love Hard. Jesus said to love God with all of our being, Gustung-gusto ang aming mga kapitbahay bilang ating sarili, at upang ibigin malalim ang lahat ng iba pang mga Kristiyano.

Kahit na ang post na ito makapagsimula sa isang malungkot na kuwento, Great News ay na Michelle kinuha si na gift card ng maraming mga taon na nakalipas. When her life ended quite unexpectedly last week, ipinakita niya ang gift card at ipinasok sa ang presensya ng Banal na Diyos magpakailanman. 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:
