My dear friend Kitty, You truly lift me up with your loving and comforting words. You always know just what to say when any of us are having troubles. I do thank the Lord for saving me from a horrible wreck. When I hit that thing, it sounded horrible and I think thats what scared me so bad. Of course I didn’t want my car damaged but my life was foremost (even I didn’t think so at that moment.)

Thank you for your (always) kind words and for making me feel a little easier. You’re one of a kind, my friend. ((((HUGS)))) May angels always protect you! We all need you in our lives.

Having a blow out is a scary thing, cause you can easily lose control of the car and if in traffic can be horrible...I would be shaking also...I have been lucky(or unlucky) with flat tires as they don't blow out, they get nails and go flat and you hear a thump de thump and know your in trouble...

We hear so much about bad cops its great to hear that many are good decent men that help out a lady when in trouble...also to follow up with a great letter to his commander is good, it goes into his file and is a good thing to do..GG

JC, as I read your story,
I got a feeling that tugged at my heart...
that you experienced a miracle!
I believe you had a Guardian Angel
Protecting you as you were driving!


Praise God you are safe!

Thanks, GG. I’m like you, the last time I had a flat, it just gently went down overnight. When I had it repaired, it had a big nail in it. Stuff happens. But when you’re driving along about 40 MPH and hit something and feel that shake, after hearing that thud. it is so unnerving!

I’ve always had respect for policemen and firemen as they risk their lives for us in the call of duty. We can’t let a few rotten ones ruin the good names of others. There’s more good than bad ones, thank goodness. See you later!

Absolutely, yorkie. You and I have talked about angels being around us all the time. I've always believed it but now I believe it even stronger. Not to prolong the thing but it sure could have been much worse. After something is over and you go to bed and think about it, it makes you even more nervous. But I just gave thanks to God that he once again pulled me through and prevented a worse situation. Thank you friend, for the lovely graphic and words. It means so much to me having true friends like you. ((((HUGS)))))

Don’t Laugh It Off

January 2, 2012

Driving a huge truck over the icy roads of northern Alaska would seem to be a task that requires a sense of humor. But when one driver heard another driver named Alex laugh often and rather loudly over the truck-to-truck communication system, he grew irritated. So he made some disparaging remarks about Alex and his good-natured guffaws.

Not long after that, the critical driver lost control of his big rig and ended up in a ditch—up to his axles in snow. And guess who came along the isolated road and saw his predicament? That’s right. Alex.

So, what would you do? Keep on trucking right past with a hearty laugh at the other guy’s trouble? That’s not what Alex did. He stopped and spent several hours helping dig his critic out. When he was done, he simply said, “Any opportunity I can have to make amends, I’m happy to do it.” And then, of course, he laughed.

What a lesson for all of us. Isn’t that what Christ commanded us to do in Luke 6—to help out even those who seem to be our enemies? The next time someone says something about you that you don’t like, think of Alex—and don’t just laugh it off. Do something positive for that person, and in so doing, you may make a friend.

Doing good to those who hate us,
Lord, is difficult to do;
Help us by Your grace to love them,
Praying they will turn to You. —Sper

A good example is the best sermon.

Read: Luke 6:27-36

Love your enemies, do good, and lend, hoping for nothing in return. —Luke 6:35
Bible in a year:
Genesis 3-5

What a GREAT story you’ve told, jaycee. Blessings showered down on you in so many ways.

Three years ago Lin and I were leaving Spokane to head back home to California. I began to feel a pull to the right and I was losing power.

I pulled over to the side of the freeway and our right front tire was flat. I had to move suitcases and boxes to access the jack and spare tire.

I was about half done with the project when a Washington State Dept of Transportation truck pulled in behind us. The guy finished the job for us plus he checked the tire pressure on the spare and added some air. I couldn’t thank him enough for what he had done.

Five hours later we purchased and new tire and had it mounted. The doughnut spare was re-mounted underneath and we were on our way home - again.

I never knew DOT provided that service on the freeways.

To: The Mayor
Thank you Mayor for the scriptures ...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“John 2:28-3:3

King James Version (KJV)

28.And now, little children, abide in him; that, when he shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before him at his coming.

29.If ye know that he is righteous, ye know that every one that doeth righteousness is born of him.

1 John 3

1.Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.

2.Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.

3.And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure. ...”
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“...
). Looking forward to Jesus’ return fills us with hope—not a wish-list kind of hope, but a solid expectation that motivates us to keep our hearts from sinful distractions and rivets our attention on becoming more like Him. If we really believe that this might be the year of His return, we will be more ready to forgive, to seek forgiveness, and to share God’s unconditional love with others. ..”
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Emphasis needed.

We both learned some things in our separate incidents. I was so astounded that this officer asked me to open the trunk and of course, I had to move some stuff out to get to that little spare. He did put on some cotton gloves and got down on one knee and went to work. The only thing he complained about was that awful piece of metal called a jack...LOL! It was one like I’d never seen before.

I’ve lived a long time in this world and I did not know a policeman would fix a flat tire for anyone. And what I thought was so nice, he had seen the whole thing and saw my hub cap fly loose and he parked and got it and brought it to where I was parked. He told me about it, I didn’t witness him at all until he drove up. I plan to get that letter to the editor written today or tomorrow. He wasn’t only helpful but such a sweet gentleman with a smile on his face. ((Needless to say, my son was glad the job was finished by the time he got there.))

You and I will always remember the nice things an officer did for us!

Literally the truck and driver stuck in the snow could have been and likely was in a life or death situation.
Not a simple though troublesome circumstance. We are all to rise above our critics, and our own pride and give help to anyone we see that is in a life threatening situation. Always.

The only caveat to that is if, it is likely to cause the death of the one offering aid, find a way to get help and figure a way to minimize the risk. Not helpful to join and create two people to be saved in a critical condition. Being prepared, and carrying supplies that are needed in a place like Alaska, is a must. Time is critical where the temperature is 30-60 degrees below zero. Definitely not a time or place to allow feelings to be involved in the rescue God is there. Call on Him believing he will answer. Do what is possible and ask him for the impossible, in Jesus name, amen.

At that time there was a morning paper and an evening paper. This article was from the morning paper on Jan 2nd.

There was also a picture in the evening paper on Jan 1st. That photo also had a small picture of my Dad. Now you can see why he went out and bought dozens of copies of the newspapers to send to his siblings and extended family.

I see Sacred Heart Hospital...you're a transplant?

LOL!!! Good one.

Sacred Heart Hospital is still operating. Lots of new buildings on the campus.

Oh, two of our three daughters were born in the same hospital.

Them days are gone for sure! Before long there won't be ANY newspapers being published. We used to get the Bee but of course being rural delivery it was a guessing game as to whether it would be there or not or would it be the Record. Finally cancelled about 4 years ago. Actually, the only thing I did with it was the crossword puzzle before I left for work each morning. lol

The creek didn’t rise but its cold as heck! It was 32 early this morning and its still 32..The insurance office is closed today! I thought I’d go to the Courthouse to pay my city property taxes and then I thought, “They’re closed, too.” I have stayed in and stayed warm. Took a few decorations down. I didn’t put up as much this year as usual and so its a little easier! But I’ll finish after while or in the morning.

Greg wants his son in law to have a mechanic where he works to look underneath the car to be sure nothing is damaged. Good idea, huh?

We had a chilly morning as well. However, they predicted cloudy with a high of 55...I just checked and it's 66 out there...lol. Somebody got it wrong. It's somewhat hazy but the front door is open and it's quite comfortable right now.

I think it's a wise decision to have someone who knows about cars check it out, just in case! You just never know.

Thank you, Meg! And for the pansies....isn’t it remarkable how pansies will grow in cold weather? I could have some now but too busy and I’m not in the flower mood, I guess.

I had to run to Walgreen’s just now and its now 30 and I saw a little spitting snow, nothing much but it was there.

I was complaining to the gentleman at the check-out counter about the weather and he said, “But, just think, spring is coming.” Isn’t that a wonderful thought? However, we have all our snow in January and February. God gives it so we’ll take it and try not to complain too much....LOL!

GOOD MILITARY MONDAY TO AMY’S PLACE!



The Soldier’s Code

1) I am an American fighting man. I serve in the forces which guard my country and our way of life. I am prepared to give my life in their defense.

2) I will never surrender of my own free will. If in command, I will never surrender my men while they still have the means to resist.

3) If I am captured, I will continue to resist by all means available. I will make every effort to escape and aid others to escape. I will accept neither parole nor special favors from the enemy.

4) If I become a prisoner of war, I will keep faith with my fellow prisoners. I will give no information or take part in any action which might be harmful to my comrades. If I am senior, I will take command. If not, I will obey the lawful orders of those appointed over me, and will back them up in every way.

5) When questioned, should I become a prisoner of war, I am bound to give only name, rank, service number, and date of birth. I will evade answering further questions to the utmost of my ability. I will make no oral or written statements disloyal to my country and its allies, or harmful to their cause.

6) I will never forget that I am an American fighting man, responsible for my actions, and dedicated to the principles which made my country free. I will trust in my God and in the United States of America.

President Dwight D. Eisenhower, August, 1955.

Hi, Jaycee! Great to see you this evening! Working on a new graphic:



THEIR FINEST HOUR



Sir Winston S. Churchill, KG, OM, CH, TD, PC, DL, FRS, Hon. RA (30 November 1874 – 24 January 1965


“....However matters may go in France or with the French Government or with another French Government, we in this island and in the British Empire will never lose our sense of comradeship with the French people. If we are now called upon to endure what they have suffered we shall emulate their courage, and if final victory rewards our toils they shall share the gains, aye. And freedom shall be restored to all. We abate nothing of our just demands—Czechs, Poles, Norwegians, Dutch, Belgians, all who have joined their causes to our own shall be restored.

What General Weygand has called the Battle of France is over. I expect that the Battle of Britain is about to begin. Upon this battle depends the survival of Christian civilization. Upon it depends our own British life, and the long continuity of our institutions and our Empire. The whole fury and might of the enemy must very soon be turned on us. Hitler knows that he will have to break us in this island or lose the war. If we can stand up to him, all Europe may be freed and the life of the world may move forward into broad, sunlit uplands.

But if we fail, then the whole world, including the United States, including all that we have known and cared for, will sink into the abyss of a new dark age made more sinister, and perhaps more protracted, by the lights of perverted science. Let us therefore brace ourselves to our duties, and so bear ourselves, that if the British Empire and its Commonwealth last for a thousand years, men will still say, This was their finest hour.”



Supermarine Spitfire, the Iconic Fighter of the Battle of Britain

Was feeling better until about an hour ago. Stepped outside the van at the gas station to fill my tank and lost my balance. Fell flat on my face and banged the bad knee. Appears no damage was done - I see the orthopedist tomorrow morning for a routine follow-up. Still, ended up with a knot on my forehead and a bloody nose. A heck of a way to start off the new year. :)

OMG! I should say a heck of a way to start off the new year! I hope your doc finds out why you’re having this trouble!
