It pains me to say that Sharon's doctor told her that she would never be released from the nursing home to return home for good in the future. Sharon was upset and crying when she told me this over the phone yesterday. Her doc said that her heart was too weak-- too damaged for that to ever happen. We both know that the Rapture is our ticket out of this corrupt, violent world if we don't die before then... and that, at least, is MY focal point, as a real, Bible believing, well studied, Christian. People who are 'weak' unbelievers have no such hope and they fear death big time... but they probably don't know much about hell either. Actually the Lord Jesus Christ used the term 'hell' a lot more than He did Heaven! I don't mind admitting that I simply LOVE the Bible Yes! REAL MEN LOVE THE BIBLE!] and that pure History comes alive for me every time I crack that Book open. The Holy Spirit allows/ helps me to understand the Bible, as I continue to tell the world who will listen-- and all you have to do is just ASK for the Holy Spirit to come and open your mind and heart... AFTER you accept the Lord Jesus Christ as you personal Savior! Fact is: This very fact seems way to simple to be true for most people... and their own "Higher Learning" is actually a stumbling block that prevents them from accepting God Almighty. Not all, but most.
So I saw Sharon again today and brought her more grapefruits and her Packers bathrobe, etc. She wanted me to meet some of her friends in the Mess Hall eating their lunch [nasty looking food-- sorry]. One of the guys named Dick is an Air Force Vietnam Veteran who shared some of the same space as I did-- at Bien Hoa Airbase during 1968, and the Big Tet offensive, one month before I got there! He remembered that Army "
tent city" -- the 357th Transportation Company [helicopters] where I served. Every other company on that base had wooden barracks except my old company and we slept in tents [I was in that company for about 8 months-- but I also served at Cu Chi, Phu Loi, and Tan Son Nuit/ Saigon--TDY] --with USARV-- 1st tour. And some other guy named James wanted me to bring our dog to the nursing home next time I come-- and I said I would. There were about 6 people at the table plus Sharon and I, and I even got to talk about the Bible for a while. Well, folks, you just know that this could be a fertile Gospel sharing area, for me and Sharon! God opens up certain 'territories' for those Christians who make themselves available.
And on Sundays they all watch football on the huge screen TV in the Mess Hall, and they all chip in and buy pizza for their own group! I make sure that my dear wife has enough money, and coins to buy cold soda from the machine, etc., in that place, besides bringing her what ever she wants/ needs. She told me that I could ever bring her sewing machine to her room. After showing her my new walking shoes-- she told me that SHE needs some now. OK, dear heart, your wish is my command...lol.
November in WI is always a very windy month, and you can see just how violent Lake Michigan is in November, and Superior too... as that old song, The Edmond Fitzgerald, goes, by Gordon Lightfoot. So if we want to do any last minute weather proofing, now is the time! I make my own storm windows with single or double pane, but my whole body is aching a lot lately-- so maybe my son can help me.
If any more people would like to send a card to Sharon, just contact me and I will give you her address in Kenosha, WI.

Hutchens The Jerusalem Connection German scholar Clemens Heni said: “There is no other prejudice or form of racism which you can compare to this centuries-long hatred (anti-Semitism) which has no real justification. If you look at Islam today, there is a point to Islamophobia because Jihadists say, ‘We want to kill the unbelievers.’ Jews never said that. Because as a German I have
