A Note from a smart sister and servant of God, Carolyn.

Old Soldier Tom's Journal.

Hi Friends,
I just wanted to post a note from my dear friend, Carolyn, whom I have known for a few years.
But here are two scriptures that I just looked up that sounded good for ME. BTW, when ever I post something >>> it may NOT be purposely AIMED AT a particular person or reader. I know that many people read my Journal who do not comment. I would like to reach out to them, make friends if I can and open a DIALOGUE. I always thought that real, compassionate, truthful communication was key to starting great, meaningful friendships -- and helping others find the Lord. After all, many of US were wanting/ searching in the past in despair and lost. Many times via email and writing Blog posts-- something is missed or lost in 'translation.' So |I try to go the extra mile in making sure that my readers understand my words-- but things still get messed up in the long run... lol. That is why I love the bible! Few things are in the "Grey area" and the Holy Spirit and other mature Christians are happy to help us for free! God's love is free. If any "church" demands money $ for 'services' [or 'sacraments' ] they are stealing, IMHO [in my humble opinion]! Jesus told His apostles, 'You received free --so give free.' Oh no! I may have started another controversy! Woo Woo! Terrible Tom is just full of mischief... Back to the 'wood shed'... lol.

Proverbs 14 :29, "He who is slow to anger has great understanding, But he who is quick-tempered exalts folly. [30] A tranquil heart is life to the body."

James 1: 19, "This you know, my beloved brethren. But everyone must be quick to hear, slow to speak and slow to anger; [20] for the anger of man does not achieve the righteousness of God." NASB.

[I want and desire a TRANQUIL heart-- pray for me.]


Tom, if you want to run anything by me first that's fine. I appreciate the compliment- but if I do write well at all, it's only because the Lord lets me
I think you do real well on your own Tom when you write from your heart. I wouldn't let commentators get to you - you know as well as I do, that like you said, we're always going to offend someone no matter what, in this day of feelings and pc! People will always be touchy, so just keep writing the truth and from your heart and love those who hate you for it. Have a great day Tom! Carolyn
Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you really knew me, you would know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.
John 14:6,7
