Air and Water

There are some things in our life and existence that we know, naturally, to be true !!!

For instance,,, Air,,, we know at a very early age that air is really important to our well-being- We may not understand it or know exactly what is in it that we need,,, but we know we need it-  Just hold your breath for a while and see how it becomes more and more important to have that next breath as just a short amount of time goes by !!!

Water is another essential part of our continued existence- Lack of water doesn’t work as fast as air to get our attention,,, but over time it becomes incredibly important- Water, or the lack of it, tends to work in a bit different way then lack of air in people !!

My case in point: After my leg amputation, I was staying at my daughter and her husband’s house for a bit getting healed and preparing for my prosthetic leg- I love latte’s, so I tend to drink more than I should, even at the expense of water-

Anyhow, one evening about nine o’clock, I was thinking about calling home to my wife and daughter – That is the last recollection I have of the rest of that evening until I woke up at 04:30, the next morning, on a gurney in the emergency room-

The story my daughter tells me is that they got a call from my wife stating that they needed to check on me downstairs as I was being really strange on the phone and couldn’t remember a lot of general information, like the dog’s name, grandma’s name and other things !! They checked and sure enough, there was a problem-

I was conscious but incoherent and babbling a bit- They immediately thought I had had a Stroke and loaded me in the car to go to town, about 40 miles away- My son-in-law said that I went into about a 2-minute circular cycle talking all the way to town- I would talk for about 2 minutes and then start over again from the same point, over and over- He even started timing me to see the loop timeframe !!! Interesting !!!

Well they started tests but the miracle thing they did, right off the bat,,, plug me into saline (liquid) – My daughter said that within about 5 minutes I began to make sense and recognize them – That was basically the point where I started to remember (I am, still, completely blank as to what happened for those 7 1/2 hours)-

Long and short,,, I was completely dehydrated, and my body was beginning to shut down, even with all the lattes!!!

All is good now,,, but it was a real eye-opener for me, my daughter, and her husband-

 I would highly recommend that you drink plenty of water first,,, and all the other good stuff later !!! I have heard that when you are thirsty, your body is already starting to dehydrate !!! Lesson Learned ,,,, DRINK, DRINK, DRINK plenty of WATER !!!

God Bless One and all and have a tall cool glass of water !!!!

Thought Provoking Wisdom

I ran across a good quote the other day that is worth sharing !!!

I saw it on a newsletter from the Denison Forum(Great site for Biblical Incites)

“If you are the only person in a dark room with a flashlight,,,, who is responsible for the light ” ???

As followers and believers in the Lord Jesus Christ,,, we have been filled with his light !!! We have the flashlight in this dark world !!!

I have owned and used a lot of flashlights in my 70 plus years ,,, but you know what ??? Not a one of them was ever any good to me until I turned it on !!!

if you are a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ,,, you are filled with his light !!! Turn on your eternal flashlight by living and spreading the Good News of him !!!

If you are not a follower yet,,, I suggest you seek Jesus, learn of him, ask him into your heart and life and you will be issued your very own eternal flashlight !!!

Roman 10:9 states ,,, ” If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead,,, you will be saved “

It is a dark world out there and time is short !!! This world needs all of his light we can offer in these dark times !!!

God Bless You Everyone,,,, Ohhh and don’t worry about batteries for your eternal flashlight ,,,, a complete recharge is just a prayer away !!!!

Take it with me

We all have something we really really like and maybe even think we can’t live without. It may be cars, houses, money, power, prestege, best friends, girl or boy friends, husband or wives,,, You name it,,, the list goes on and on !!!

Here is the catch,,, we can’t take any of it with us to the next step in our existence !! At some point we are all going to pass through this life !! No if, ands, or buts !! I just read that the oldest person in the world is 119 years old,, most of us won’t see that age. So that means that there is no one living from the year 2000 or before,,, no exceptions !!! We came into this world with nothing and we will leave this world with nothing !!! It does not matter how rich we are, how famous we are, how good or bad we are or how wishful we are,,, we leave everything her e,,, but there is a “but” here !!!

There is only one thing that we can gain from this life, and only while living this life, that will follow us to the next stage of eternity,, that is our salvation !!!

It is only available to us while we are alive and can only be obtained through acceptance and belief in Jesus Christ. It is completely our choice to make,,, no church, no person, no religion and no friend can accept it or purchase it, on our behalf !!! As soon as we pass through death’s door,,, which we all will,,, that choice is gone forever !!!!

There is no changing your eternal destination after death !!!

You either choose to accept, believe and ask forgiveness of Jesus Christ for eternal salvation in Heaven (Unimaginable Paradise) or you choose not to except him, or reject him or put is off until it’s too late and you spend eternity in Hell (Unimaginal suffering and separation from God )

I know you are thinking that, Hell is too harsh,, how could a loving God do that ??? Well God is a loving God and Father ,,, but he is also a God of Judgement and Punishment,,, just as any loving father is with his children. He is giving us every opportunity to accept his son and save us in this life,,, but when it is over,,, it is over. Your soul will spend eternity living with your decision in this life !!!! Eternal Light or Eternal Darkness !!!

The world is in chaos today,,, worse then ever before and you can see Biblical Prophecies come to pass almost everyday !! Time is short and none of us can predict what will happen tomorrow or even later today !!! I am sure that the majority of people that passed away yesterday,,, didn’t think they would the day before they passed !!!

Make the decision now and guarantee your eternal existance in heaven !!

John 3:16 – “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” That would be eternal life in Heaven with him !!!

Make the choice,,, your eternity depends on it !!

God Bless You One and All !!!
