I intend to enjoy my "Last Supper" with a younger couple from church, at noon today, before I attempt my 2 week fast before my upcoming knee surgery.... again. I have my own way of preparing myself, physically, mentally and spiritually, but it's always nice to have REAL friends who pray for me and email. This last 6 months, starting with Dec. 6th [Right knee replacement], has been a rough year for me, and I could NOT have made it without the Holy Spirit and my profound faith in Christ. I am just an average human being, an ordinary man-- with the heart of a champion-- a Soldier of Jesus Christ, His humble servant. And even though every human may sin every day-- some more than others, WE have the divine promise that after being SAVED, those sins are forgiven through our Christ, Past, Present and Future, until we get to heaven--NOT BY OUR 'GOOD WORKS', kindness, donations or charities, but from the blood of Christ!! So much to do before facing the knife and saw again.
Drive safe-- Be well.
Tom Schuckman, at CuChi, RVN, age 19, in early 1968. "We were young-- we were soldiers."
Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, "I will never leave you nor forsake you." So we may boldly say: "The Lord is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?"
Hebrews 13:5-6 (New King James Version)
