Time to Rest.

Tom's Journal.

Well, the day didn't turn out as bad as I thought it would, and I will take my wife to her doctor tomorrow instead. Maybe, just maybe, all my friends, the nurses, etc., can now convince Sharon to use her walker ALL THE TIME, look straight ahead with her eyes wide open, and pay more attention to how she walks. But I have insisted that we communicate BETTER when ever she needs to go somewhere, walks some where, always carries a cell phone, and a whistle around her neck on a case she has another tumble. Her RN named Ann came over today and helped Sharon a lot, and Ann is very nice, polite and professional. Stuff like her always falling down and injuring her self really upsets and stresses me!

I still got a lot done today, like paying bills, buying more paint, some repairs and a few calls for help and assistance, and a repair man named Jay came over and installed a new furnace/ A/C motor today. We had a few minutes to chat about the DEFINED KJV BIBLE, and I gave him a free, medium sized copy today. I call that "seed planting." I could really use a full day off to 'recharge my battery.' I am so happy that my son, Andy, came over, unbeknownst to me, and almost finished the house painting-- but I was very surprised that we ran out of paint again! I bought another gallon today earlier, thinking that would finish the house, but we fell short again, and now we figure I need to buy 2 more gallons of BLUE paint, and one gallon of white trim paint- semi-gloss, and that will amount to $60 more ...HA! But the place looked so good that a guy running for Racine County Sheriff asked if he could plan his sign on my front lawn...LOL. But I first asked him "what flavor he was"... what party, and he said Republican..... so that was OK. Glad that some folks appreciate our good taste of 'Superman BLUE', and handiwork. So Andy thinks that we have about 90% of the house done, plus the white trim, and he will tackle that Sunday... if the river don't rise. In the mean time we will have rain for the next 3 days, in S.E. WI., and many parts of Wisconsin are having flooding problems-- but our old house is safe.

Now --- We all knew and thought of the distinct possibility of Mr. Obama shutting down all opposition to his agenda, and personal past, via the InterNet some day-- but now it looks like his 'machine' is already doing that, as the article below illustrates. I just want to say that many of my fellow Patriot/ Veteran, and Christian friends are right with me and behind me -- telling me that I am doing 'God's work' in sharing the Bible/ Gospel of Jesus Christ, and much good has been accomplished with my [almost] 800 Blog posts to date. What the current administration is doing is quite illegal by seizing Domains, Property, Blogs, Web Sites in good standing !! Jack Kinsella does a good job explaining what is happening, and how things could escalate and shut down Patriot and Christian Blogs/ Web sites. WHAT A LOSS OF FREEDOM AND LIBERTY IN AMERICA! But... if you have a immoral porn site-- don't worry-- that's OK... according to the Gov't... Ha! Woe to them who are saying: 'Good is Bad-- and Bad is Good.' There will be a day of reckoning. God will repay. But can we just imagine what will happen after the Rapture comes, and the Tribulation begins... the Holy Spirit will be with drawn, and the only things that will drive people 'left behind' will be money, materialism, survival, and lust! People will look back at the Summer of 2010 as a Paradise, compared to the violent sewer they will be forced to live in!

But, in the mean time, Christians will just have to find a different mode/ vehicle, of sharing the Good News of the Gospel, and there are different ways that I can personally recommend-- but none as prolific as the InterNet.... sorry, folks. And for those who continue to pray for our national "leaders" in the USA, it sure seems to me that Satan has a death grip on those in high Gov't places... but that is my personal opinion.

Getting Sharon in the truck tomorrow should be a trick, but the truck holds/ carries my power scooter so that I can accompany her into her doctor's office. I sprung my right knee, sitting down the wrong way yesterday on the picnic bench, and hyper extended it. I think it will heal in a week or so, but getting up and down right now is a bummer. Many of my good friends and buddies are having health challenges too who are in their 60's and older, so we all groan together, and thank God for all His gentle mercies.
Thank you, Joe and Doris van der Mullen, for coming over so early and helping my wife get off the floor. I was trying most of the morning, but didn't have any success. My back is shot too-- but now I require my wife to wear her "Gait-Belt" so I can lift he if she falls or loses her balance.

By Jack Kinsella. The Omega Letter The US federal government recently "took action" against several websites connected with movie streaming and peer-to-peer file sharing.What "taking action" means is that the federal government has ordered a free blogging platform taken down by its hosting provider on the grounds the website has a "history of abuse."In order to shut down the handful of 'offending'

Oh, What a Night.

Tom's Journal.

What a night-- and what a morning! My wife fell down AGAIN last night at 7:34PM and got bloodied. Then her back started hurting her and she got out of bed at 0230 hours and fell down again. I tried hard to get her up but her legs/ knees buckled and she fell again breaking the toilet tank cover. Remember that she fell this past Sunday right before church and hurt the temple/ side of her head-- blood all over the bathroom.

Question: Why is it that so many ladies have the "prideful women's foolish attitude mindset" when the husband makes himself available to help his spouse ?? Must be the way a person is raised, huh? Well, her Visiting Nurses RN, Ann, is here at the house now, and I will take Sharon back to see her doctor this very after noon. The air temp should be 85 degrees today, and I expected my son to finish the painting of the house too, when he gets out of work. Ahhh, so much for a peaceful retirement, for an old, disabled war horse, after 30 years on the AMC/ Chrysler assembly line.... LOL. I was dismayed to find out that I MUST check each and every piece of snail mail, even after retirement, because it just might be something important-- although 98% of the stuff I get is junk mail. Same with my computer and spam.

I like good cliches and axioms--- and Murphy's Laws[book]. "A parachute is like the human mind-- it only works when open." And, "If anything can go wrong-- it will."
But the book of Proverbs is the very best --of good, helpful, healthful sayings, IMO. If only all of us were taught to study God's Proverbs when we were young-- we might not have had to FALL DOWN SO OFTEN and get bloodied! But on the other hand, well trained soldiers STILL HAVE TO TASTE COMBAT AND BATTLE to be "baptized" properly. The Infantry cherish the CIB [Combat Infantry Badge], and Aviators are proud of their crew member wings and Air Medals. Just like at American Motors Corp., etc., they have a man called an inspector [quality control] who comes around with a hammer and chisel to try and break open my welds to "test" their strength . That has to be done to insure quality! They crash new cars off the assembly line on purpose to see where the weak spots are, so they can make better, safer cars and trucks.

For the past 6000 years, according to the Bible, mankind has been 'tested' as a "free moral agents" created by God. God does not test us, per say... but in the case of Job, God allowed the devil to 'touch' Job to see if Job would remain a true servant of Jehovah, the Father in Heaven. Yes, there is a difference! Here is where the real discernment comes into play, and many people are confused. Don't forget that we humans were born into this world of SIN-- as Adam 'totally blew the game' for all of us in the garden of Eden, and passed on sin to the whole world of mankind. If you need further response/ info -- just email me or comment, please. I only answer and publish comments from legit people who have a return address and a real name.

Some of us have to put up with more pain and trouble than others-- and this is a "test" too. Since we all will have some sort of calamity in our lives, death in the family, sickness, injuries, loss of job and home, finance challenges-- the bible says that NOTHING out of the ordinary will be sent our way that a human cannot survive-- known to man. What really matters is HOW WE WEATHER THE STORM! Personally, in my past life, I have failed miserably because I trusted in my own talents, inherent abilities and strength.... instead of humbling myself under the mighty hand of God [the Holy Spirit-- especially]. Maybe you can learn from some of MY mistakes and spare yourselves the pain and sorrow or being proud and haughty, or too independent. Satan loves to promote Womens' Lib, Racism, Nationalism, Socialism, PRIDE and materialism! The humble servant of God is NOT A WIMP or sissy, but a well trained, smart, wise, brave Christian soldier! Soldiers WILL FALL sometimes-- but they always get up again to fight and defend! We will continue to make mistakes and sin [not on purpose] but we KNOW FOR SURE WHERE WE ARE GOING WHEN WE DIE [or get Raptured]. That is a good, smart, encouraging thought when we are facing the 'giants' of illness and pain.
I have heard too many times--- people who are worried, concerned and confused that their sins are 'too bad' for them to go to heaven-- and that is totally WRONG! Jesus died for ALL MANKIND and Salvation is for every human on earth IF THEY ACCEPT JESUS AS THEIR PERSONAL LORD AND SAVIOR!! Get it? This may sound too 'simplistic', but it's the Word of God! Reject Christ and you lose out BIG TIME-- and hell is a real place of torment according to Jesus own words. What ever your problems are, or sins-- the Bible says that all can be forgiven, past, present and future, and the HOLY SPIRIT can and will help you "put on the new man [personality that is pleasing to God]." Ponder on this fact -- but don't sit on the fence and wonder about it too long, friends. I need the HOLY SPIRIT every day too to deal with my own crisis and struggles.

Thank you all for your prayers and support/ comments, in regards to my wife and I.

Warm Regards,
Tom Schuckman
