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!


زندگی مختصر ہے – محبت ہارڈ! تیار ہو جائے!

زندگی مختصر ہے - محبت ہارڈ & تیار ہو جائے

love crossاتوار میں نوجوانوں کے گروپ میں نوجوان خواتین میں سے ایک کے بارے میں کے ساتھ کام کیا ہے کہ میں لفظ موصول جب زندگی ہو سکتا ہے کس طرح مختصر کی یاد تھی 30 سال پہلے, گزشتہ جمعرات کی صبح اس کے گھر کے اندر مردہ پایا گیا تھا. She was 43 اور ایک شوہر اور پیچھے چھوڑ دیتا ہے 5 بچوں. The cause of death is not yet known.

زندگی مختصر ہے اور ہمارے یہاں وقت ہو گا جب ہم نہیں جانتے. In light of eternity, یہاں ہمارے قیام کی چمک کے مختصر لیکن. 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, روشن خیالی کی تلاش میں, یا روایات کے احترام کی ادائیگی afterlife میں آرام کرنے کے لئے ان کی روح کو کرے گا. Jesus said all of those things are good, لیکن کافی اچھا نہیں.

ملاحظہ کریں, خدا محبت ہے, انہوں نے کہا کہ پاک ہے - اس کے بارے میں سب کچھ ہے, خیالات, الفاظ اور اعمال, ایک نیک مقصد سے کیا جاتا ہے. Only if you meet that measure of perfection would you even be able to exist in His presence, وہ کامل روشنی ہے اور یہ سب تاریکی خارج کر دیا گیا. So all it takes to be unable to be in His presence is one microscopic speck of imperfection. "That's impossible", آپ کا کہنا ہے! 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 "گفٹ کارڈ" - حضرت عیسی علیہ السلام. His hand is extended, ان کے ہاتھ میں کارڈ.

ہمیں کیا کرنا ہے کہ گفٹ کارڈ قبول کرنے کے لئے ہے. If we don't take that gift card, تو ہمارے جسم مر جب, 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 - ہمیں ہماری جگہ لینے کے لئے رضاکارانہ طور پر اتنا پیار کرتا تھا وہی حضرت عیسی علیہ السلام. God wants us to Love Hard. Jesus said to love God with all of our being, خود کے طور پر اپنے ہمسایوں سے محبت, اور دل کی گہرائیوں تمام دوسرے عیسائیوں سے محبت کرنے.

اس پوسٹ ایک اداس کہانی کے ساتھ شروع کر دیا ہے اگرچہ, عظیم خبریں مشیل لیا تھا یہ ہے کہ پہلے گفٹ کارڈ کے کئی سال. When her life ended quite unexpectedly last week, وہ گفٹ کارڈ پیش کیا اور ہمیشہ کے لئے مقدس خدا کی موجودگی میں داخل. 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:
