Eye feels funny, it seems as though my uveites might be coming back related to my Ankylosing Spondilitis. So I rush to the oftalmologist to check things out because I do not want to go through what I went through before. Only arrive there and get the news that I have cataracts at this age and that in the right eye I am legaly blind can you believe that or what. Oh well I guess i just have to live with it, going to surgery in two weeks to see what can be done to make it right. It's like what is next.....
16Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. 17For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. 18So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
We are in our new house. We have moved in. With loads of help from the movers. From friends. From brothers and sisters in Christ from Church. Our thanks to all for all the tons of help we received from everybody. I must confess I was dead beat by saturday night when I finally went to bed. But relieved that all was in the house. Now it's the organizing getting everything out of boxes. Tossing what we don't need and giving and sharing some things with others, what we don't need it's time to clean up also. Wife is happy with the new house and will all her new furniture and decorations. Now we just need some time to get everything into it's place. Thanks ... Thanks... Thanks...
We we have much thanks to give. We thank the Lord for once again giving us the oportunity to be the proud owners of our own home. We closed yesterday and we will be moving in this coming saturday. Many thanks for all the support and all the prayers.
A must see. Be sure to take some tissue paper with you because you will shead some tears and you will chocke up at times. The question I ask is what are we waiting for there are some many in need to hear the good news of the gospel, why are we holding back, christians are not doing there duty of sharing there faith with others that have not heard the good news. We need to wake up people we need to share our faith. We need to live by example. This Sunday Morning is not going to cut it, we need a deeper commitment from all of those who have believed. We need to make ever bigger sacrifices in order to have time to not only worship the Lord but also carry out his orders and His good news !!!
Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. James 1:2-3/NIV
Thought... "Hang in there!" There are few traits more important than perseverance. Most important accomplishments in life happen because of perseverance. Most "luck" occurs when we've persevered long enough for the "magical moment" to come along -- in other words, I don't believe in luck. Edison said it best: life's greatest feats, the world's greatest discoveries, his own most fantastic inventions are "1% inspiration and 99% perspiration." "Hang in there!" and see the glory of God come through in you, not because of luck, but because of God's grace, love, and Providence! Prayer... Unchangeable and Unshakeable God, through the friends you have sent into my life and by the power of your gift, the Holy Spirit, help me to stand up under trial and prove my character true with perseverance when under fire. Give my faith courage and endurance so that my life shows forth your enduring strength. I pray in the name of him who remained faithful even unto death, Jesus Christ my Lord. Amen.
"For it is God's will that by doing good you should silence the ignorant talk of foolish men. Live as free men, but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil; live as servants of God." 1 Peter 2:15-16, NIV
Hard to believe you are already 10 years old. It seems like yesterday we were in the hospital with you, time is flying by, we are getting old and you growing right before our eyes. May God Bless you and give you many more years filled with happiness joy and wisdom.
We are now in countdown mode. We close on our new home in 25 days. We are very much looking forward to this, since there has been a delay, we were supposed to be in it by Nov 15. But now it's almost here and we are definetly looking forward to it.
