三年 – 回首擁有CES


我一直在尋找我的手機那天上的圖片, 清洗過那些已被傳輸到計算機. 我碰到一個畫面我參加了進來 2 在印第安湖男子冰捕魚. 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.

享受俄亥俄天氣 & 日落

美麗的夕陽在俄亥俄州, 神提供這個工作後,晚上, 我們決定走出房子了一會兒,今天享受美妙的天氣. 我們去我們家附近的一個公園. 很多人都出去打籃球, 足球,走在鋪好的踪跡/運行. 我們是 slooooooowwwwww 步行者.

我們確實需要一個不錯的步行. 這是不長個, 但我們走到周圍的小道一路板凳部分. 我們坐在那裡,看著人們外出走動, 一個CPD直升機 (一個MD500) 盤旋的I-71 / 北極星大路交匯處,當然還有日落.

什麼夕陽! 一直待到日落左右, 看看上帝提供給蓋掉我們的享受 (注意: 一些色彩校正,在完成 攪拌機). 什麼表演!

照顧自己 & 上帝祝福你!


生命是短暫的 – 愛硬! 做好準備!

生命是短暫的 - 愛硬 & 做好準備

love cross星期天,我想起了生命短暫,可當我收到消息說的年輕女士在青年組中的一個,我曾與有關 30 年前, 被發現死在她家內最後一個星期四上午. 她 43 並留下一個丈夫和 5 孩子. The cause of death is not yet known.

生命是短暫的,我們不知道什麼時候我們這裡的時間將達到. In light of eternity, 我們在這裡的逗留,但閃爍的最短. 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, 尋找啟示, 或支付有關的傳統將把他們的靈魂以安慰在來世. Jesus said all of those things are good, 但還不夠好.

看, 而上帝是愛, 他也是聖 - 這意味著關於他的一切, 想法, 言行, 從正義的動機做. Only if you meet that measure of perfection would you even be able to exist in His presence, 因為他是完美的光線,並將其驅逐所有的黑暗. So all it takes to be unable to be in His presence is one microscopic speck of imperfection. "That's impossible", 你說! 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 "禮品卡" - 耶穌. His hand is extended, 該卡在他的手指.

我們所要做的就是接受禮品卡. If we don't take that gift card, 那麼當我們的身體死, 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 - 誰愛我們,以至於他志願參加我們的地方同樣的耶穌. God wants us to Love Hard. Jesus said to love God with all of our being, 愛鄰如己, 並深愛的所有其他基督徒.

雖然這個帖子開始與一個悲傷的故事, 好消息是,米歇爾已經採取了禮品卡很多年前. When her life ended quite unexpectedly last week, 她提出的禮品卡,並進入聖潔的神的存在永遠. 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:
