Don't Ask, Don't Bleed.

Tom's Journal.

Sorry for the flurry of many posts today... but this subject DEMANDS posting. This has got to be one of the most irresponsible things the 'President obama' has ever done!

My good old Army days are both scary and frightful, but also very dear to me, along with many combat Veteran buddies that survived who are still good friends of mine. You might say that we are in an 'exclusive, special Club' of survivors who escaped many disasters and trauma, and lived to tell about it and share with others. Good loyal Soldiers and Marines have a rich legacy and wealth of learned training and experiences that only the military can teach, and once in a life time battle experiences that they can share with their grand kids. Make NO mistake, the Bible is very clear [both Old and New Testament] about the serious SIN of HOMOSEXUALITY / Sodomy!! People who continue to PRACTICE this abhorrent sin of the flesh can expect to reap emotional, spiritual, and physical damage, and shame. God hates the SIN, but loves the sinner. But God has clearly drawn a line in the sand-- and recorded in His "Book" that Homosexuals WILL NOT INHERIT THE KINGDOM! The same thing applies to unrepentant LIARS, FORNICATORS, DRUNKARDS, MURDERERS, etc.

Sorry to say, this recent blow to our great, brave military is one more 'sign' that America is going down. I know that some consider me 'blasphemous' or ungodly to even say that America may cease to exist if and when the Global ONE WORLD GOV'T finally gets here.... according to the "Book." READ THE BOOK! The bible, and subject yourselves to the Son, Jesus Christ, while there is still time. I know I sound like a broken record, but it's that important, my brothers, friends and readers. As the apostle Paul said, 'all the other things in life are but a pile of manure...'

Don't Ask, Don't Bleed

By Matt Barber. Liberty Counsel. The U.S. military has always discriminated. There are a host of malignant behaviors such as illicit drug use or habitual criminality that can render a person ineligible to serve. As my father-in-law learned, there are also benign maladies such as vision impairment or flat feet that can bar an otherwise eligible applicant. Any number of behaviors or conditions with.....

Some Progress in Tests.

Tom's Journal.

I talked to my wife about 2 hours ago to check up on her progress. She told me that the hosp. staff did a bunch of chest and back x-rays and then stuck a long needle into her right lung and drew out 800 cc's of fluid!! Wow! That's about one quart from what she said, and she used to be a advanced EMT in a squad down in Ohio years ago. it could be a number of things in getting such a massive fluid build up and her lung was COLLAPSED. More tests are needed. Could be a internal virus, bruise, trauma, inflammation...?? She has 2 MALE RN's [Chris and Frank[ at St. Catherine's Hospital on Highway 50, just West of Kenosha, WI., who took the reins recently, and kicked butt to really help Sharon aggressively, to see what is causing her infirmity. We think that it's about time... Funny, when I was there waiting for her doctor to show up yesterday, I finally left and I heard she came in the room only minutes after---but I wrote/ left a polite but pointed letter that Sharon showed her, that we were looking for more answers, better communication, co-operation, prognosis and CARE. I guess combat Vets would prefer to 'cut to the chase' and take care of business...rather than pussy foot around, and just "put their faith" in the 'gods of modern medicine' But don't forget that WE give high praise to those medical people who help us, as posted in my humble Blog. But as the whole world grows increasingly violent, callous, GREEDY, and self-serving -- the so-called "Medical Community" does too. They walk around like gods demanding near worship, and are so full of themselves, for the most part, but they are certainly no better than you and I. Please note that there are still some very good, gifted, talented, skilled doctors and nurses who take their jobs seriously and REALLY CARE FOR THEIR PATIENTS! But from all my frequent encounters of the "medical Kind" in the past 30 years, they are getting too few and hard to find, in these 'Last Days' leading to the final reckoning with the Lord. And it's ALL IN THE 'BOOK!' READ THE 'BOOK'... THE BIBLE! Need help? Ask me and I will do my best to steer you to the proper resources in your neighborhood.

So, the collapsed right lung was at least part of the reason Sharon was so darn short of breath, which made it so hard to walk or do anything! Duh! She has a bone to pick with all the lazy, do nothing, there for the paycheck only, female nurses and staff who did the bare minimum, in her opinion. And we would be lying to ourselves or living in some dreamland not to agree! In fact, it is written in the Bible, that we should NOT be surprised if we see great religious leaders, pastors, evangelists, friends we have known and trusted for years-- to be misled, side tracked by the devil, at least temporarily! THAT IS WHY reading and understanding the Bible NOW is SO IMPORTANT !! Just how can we have the 'resources' and discernment to see through something so BIG and heart stopping than some of our Sheppard's falling just before the Lord comes? Be prepared to be tested, and be NOT misled-- the devil Satan is very powerful. Being a Soldier of Christ means that we are armored and well TRAINED! A Soldier has to learn a lot to keep himself and his comrades alive in battle. And WE don't have all that much longer to train-- so let us all GET WITH THE PROGRAM, please!

Thank you for your constant prayers, kindness and support.


A Letter from Penny.

Tom's Journal.

Sharon and Tom at church. She needs her Oxygen to breathe 24/ 7.

Sorry, folks.... I just HAD TO share this fine, moving letter from a dear friend in NV who has blessed us with all kinds of special blessings, encouragement and knowledge. I hope I don't get in trouble for posting this-- but it is so inspirational to me and has touched my heart -- and I hope that it will touch yours too, and move you to ACTION!

Penny is married to Robb, who is a combat Vietnam Veteran, like me, who found the Lord later in life, but has been stricken with a stroke [I believe] and other sicknesses, maybe Malaria from combat in 'Nam. It's got to be a real bummer to have all his physical and mental PAIN, but worse that he is losing his memory [ I believe dementia], and poor Penny has to somehow deal with it. She was a missionary in Mexico for many years, and has a wealth of vast experience and blessing from serving the Lord all these years. She has been a blessing in my life for the past few years, and we try to encourage each other. Sharon has talked to Penny a few times on the phone and learned a lot too-- and bonded to her.

It's really kind of stupid to beat your chest with all kinds of prideful non-sense-- in thinking that you are something special. Pride is a dangerous sin! You [we] could be struck with a disabling sickness, injury or condition in a heart beat! James 4:14, says, " Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanishesth away." KJV. Understanding scripture like this makes one humble and therefore pleasing to God Almighty. Then we can serve Him better in greater strength and do His work. In this way we store up our 'treasures in heaven where moth and and rust cannot consume.'

Such is the power of the pen, emails, letters, phone calls, from smart, Bible educated real, true Christians like dear Penny, and many others who know that their Prime Directive, First Order, is to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ -- but also to love, cherish and help other Christians in their time of need. All the silly manure we send in the way of jokes and baloney via emails gives least meaning and wastes our precious time in these 'End Times' .... but endearing letters like Penny's are a shinning testament to her love for Jesus and His commandments.

Thank you so much, Penny Perez!

Warm Regards,

Hi Tom ~ I am so sorry that Sharon is suffering and going downhill. Yes, I believe that your main job with her was to bring her into the path of Christ. I know it is difficult being a caretaker. It's not what we signed up for. As you know, I was a widowed missionary when Rob came into my life. I had no intention of ever marrying again. I just wanted to serve the Lord. And I hear you saying that as well. You serve the Lord well through your blog, bible distribution, by your very presence. You have studied the Word and share that study with so many people. It's His work you are doing as you care for her. As Rob deteriorates, I wonder how much more care he will need from me. I didn't expect this. I'm angry that I am in this position. Then I see him outside talking to a hurting, tattooed young man. He's talking to him about Jesus. He puts his hand on him and calls him "son". The boy's eyes water and he walks away, but the seed has been planted. He waves at Rob daily. I will care for this man as long as I am physically able. He's forgotten the date, our wedding, what happened a couple of days ago, but he has not forgotten who he is in Christ. He ministers daily to the hurting. Amazing grace. Who am I to decide what the Lord will have me do? My eyes are on the prize. As you have, I see the signs. I know the time is short and there is much to do. Care taking seems to get in the way of that. Perhaps the very act of caring is our way to open more doors. Please know that we pray for you and Sharon daily and love you both without ever having met you face to face. It will be our joy to meet you when Christ comes.

In the service of Jesus, Penny

Now may the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God and into the patience of Christ.
