A new outlook.

Tom's Journal.

I always listen to my mate, my closest friend, to direct me, help me, and guard my tongue.  So now, I will try even harder to be more sociable, kind, forgiving and nicer...  but I cannot stop sharing the Gospel and the truth of the Bible--God's own Word...sorry. 

Terri helped me to unload my pick up truck--a welder, air compressor, and a tool box with drawers, from the back truck bed, and they were not too heavy between the both of us, and I would NEVER ask her to lift too much weight, but in fact that is what she does at work all the time.  We must get other stronger, younger people over here to do that lifting!  I will gladly pay them out of my own pocket. 

I will be teaching the "Rule of 72" again soon, to show people the most fundamental truth of the 'magic' of  "Compound Interest" and how to make money  your 'slave' -- not your master!  Paul told Timothy that the "LOVE OF MONEY was the root of all sorts of  injurious things!!  Not money alone--because we all need some money to pay our bills and live.  This is very important, because so many 'unlearned', ignorant, uninformed people get this principle wrong!  I truly want my humble blog to BENEFIT and edify my readers.  So... IF, the Rapture could come at anytime, and no human being knows exactly when it will come, would it not be prudent to conduct our daily lives to prepare and reflect this knowledge??  Would it behove us to go out of our way and built a multi-million dollar house and buy a 2nd Yacht/ pleasure boat?  I am not your judge, and I have to look at myself in the mirror every morning too.  I was thinking about buying another motorcycle, but Terri reasoned with me that we really didn't "NEED" to make such a purchase-- and I always listen to her, no matter what the final outcome will be.  And we are using the Bible to direct all of our ways, and doing the right thing, as soon as is viable.  My Chrysler benefits are good, so why would I not want to share them with someone who has been so kind and selfless to me, who loves me for whom and what I AM--after we can legally solidify our union?  In the final analysis, we will have to trust another person with our life, when we cannot.  Right now, my best friend, Bill Tippett, is my POA [power of attorney], who also served with me in my old Army combat helicopter outfit- the 240th AHC, as  you see one of our 'gunships' on the flight line/ POL dump [fuel] in Vietnam...'a thousand years ago.'   I served there 'in-country' from 68-70, being a door gunner on my 2nd tour of duty.  I am still wondering how 2 short years of my life could have so much bearing on the rest of my life.... But the POA will naturally change/ transfer to the woman I marry, especially with her clear, educated mind and heart and spirit. 

I just met another Vietnam Vet at church yesterday, [and his name is Rick],  Sunday, and it seemed like an 'instant bonding' of two brothers, in more ways than one.  I only hope and pray that we can become close friends in the future. 

It doesn't matter 'WHEN' we come to know the Lord,  heaven is stil our home, and our reward will be great!  But me think that I wasted half of my adult life chasing after the pure Truth of the Bible, and got misled by a 'church of the poisoned mind' -- so now I hope and desire to make up for lost time, and really pour out myself in the Bible tract ministry.  Now, how can a simple Christian man know who to talk to-- and who should I approach with the Word of God-- the Gospel of Salvation???  I believe that the Holy Spirit most times leads me and puts the correct words in my mouth-- but I just look at someone, and work up the nerve to 'talk to a stranger !'  That in itself is a bit "abnormal' in our society, and I am never asking for any compensation/ money, although I could ask for a small offering -- but I am NOT out to get some 'filthy lucar' -money.  The LORD provides for me!!  The LORD blesses me with everything a man could want and need!!  I am happy and CONTENT with what I have, but now God has blessed me with a true Christian companion that I hope to legally bind us together as soon as it is feasible.  PTL. 

From now on, I will try harder to be kind, considerate, more sociable, and respect all people, if possible.  Terri knows that she can go anywhere and do anything, and doesn't need my 'permission' because we have that mutual trust and deep concern for each other.  For my part, I am forgiving any past 'small wars', disagreements, or skirmishes, and be more open minded.

So, my friends and readers, I ask you to please, meet me half way, with mutual respect, because I intend to be more open minded, more kind, and courteous.  I know how to say, "I'm sorry."  I've got bigger fish to fry as I am learning my way around Iron Mtn, MI., and have lots of good wholesome things to do.  I would love to set up a small woodworking niche some where, as I love to carve wood with a router, and other power tools.  I have many good hobbies, skills and trades, but my sudden arthritis and botched up knee replacements have shut down too many of my activities....  sorry.

Have a great day!

Warm Regards,

Charging up my cell phone.

Tom's Journal.

Above is a great Christian Blog that I like a lot, and suggest that all my readers make it part of their own regular consideration.   Good stuff, for alert, serious Christian warriors.  Thanks.
I am having a devilish time finding my way around Iron Mountain, MI., by myself, and once I travel off the beaten cow path... lol, I get lost again, because we are dealing with the topography and lay out of the land -- mountains, valleys, rivers going thru it, etc.  

I have found several places to attend some church, and even met a lady in the grocery store today who had a 'fish' and love inside it tattooed on her arm, and she 'just happened to'  belong to a local Baptist church near here, and invited me to come!  But I must confess that many, if not most people have the intellect sufficient to give good directions.... sorry.  The people up here are very kind and helpful, many of them retired military people who come to get more 'bang for their buck' -- to buy a nice home, for little money up here in I.M.  But the speed limit is 25-30 MPH, and that makes for frustrating driving, when I need to get from point A to point B.  And today I spent a lot of time and precious gas trying to find the local YMCA that I was ready, willing and able to join TODAY!!   Ha!   The damp wet weather is playing a devilish game on my sore joints and muscles too.

I took Terri out for a very fine, expensive dinner last night, as she was worn out and hungry, to show her how much I care for her... and to spoil her.  I hate to see her so run down and tired coming home every single day, walking on concrete all the time at her place of employment-- very physical.  I could bare all her burdens/ bills right now-- but it would be tight... but IF my poor, humble house in U.G. sold, we could have Terri retired right then and there with no sweat and maintain our present lifestyle !  But with our downward, tailspin of the economic melt down-- we are apt to be cautious.... and look before we leap.  I am thinking about buying a cheap motorcycle, but it's only a thought-- or a dream, and we don't really need it, except that it would be so easy and good on gas mileage. 

I will talk to my most trusted "inner circle" of intimate friends and get their opinion...and of course Terri's input before I ever LEAP, as we agreed long ago.  "Who let the Dogs out?"

I am not so bored anymore, and recognize that the one who really does the physical labor in the house and work site is TERRI, and I will be much more supportive from now on, even if my body aches.  Just like at my own house in U.G., I work for a while, then rest for 10 minutes, and repeat, repeat.  I was doing good for a while when I joined the YMCA in Kenosha!  Come this Summer, it will have been 1 full year since my last and final knee replacement surgery at Kenosha Hospital, and also catching a life threatening 'bug' in the operating room by the 'UNWASHED' staff that threw the whole damage control team into a tail spin to hurry and kill that URSA virus before it killed me, and my best friend had the same thing happen to him at the SAME PLACE a few years before me!!!  So go figure....duh.  And I still believe that the Milwaukee VAMC botched up my Right knee BIG TIME, and now it is somehow 'shorter' and won't walk right, and also giving me a back ache.  Don't worry, folks, many other Veterans have told me worse horror stories about the VA's botched surgeries-- and this country deserves a failed, 3rd class ObamaCare, if they dare vote that monkey back for a 2nd term!  God may already have this in mind, to some extent, although Israel is His main Gig... and there is not too much we can do to change the future when God has already ordained what will come to pass, of course, yet most of the world toils in vain, thinking that MANKIND can and will rule HIMSELF...Ha!!  Talk about having illusions and crazy dreams and mindsets.    I will vote, but we may already be stuck too far down in the muck, mire,  corruption, and gross wickedness... but one thing is for sure, Bible prophecy MUST and WILL be fulfilled!  I will, of course vote for the lessor of all evils in November, but what will be, will be, and the best that we can do is get right with the Lord, and do His work to the best of our abilities.  This has pretty much been my 'mission statement' all the time, for the past 10 years-- and millions of other 'radical'.. extreme, 'crazy' fundamental Christians all over the world, and Jesus foretold that we Christian would face derision, harm, insults, threats, opposition, from time to time, and even death. 

Jesus said, in Matthew 10, verse 38 [but please read the whole chapter],  "and he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me."  texting fool crosses the center line and sends up home, or to hell. 

I felt that the following short articles were cool and interesting.  Please read them and share.. if you care, if you dare, if you are not scared, not paralyzed with fear of man's opinions or criticism.  Have a great day!  Now I have to unload the truck, and we might have lobster tails for supper!

Warm Wishes and Regards,
Tom Schuckman
    ... please add a few prayers for my dear grandson, and his broken lower leg.  Thanks.

Back at Home.

Tom's Journal.

Hi Friends!
It's so good to be back home again, and I was well missed, but I had to take that 3 day 'sabatical' and get my feared taxes done-- with nothing to pay into the Gov't!  Also went to the Milwaukee VAMC for an appointment, where all the good doctors did was to examine me for something that has no cure or treatment-- psoriasis on the skin-- that mostly heals up in the Summer time --sun shine, in my case.  So, I was happy to at least collect my VA travel pay after spending about $200 for gas, to and from Iron Mountain, MI. 

While down in the Kenosha area, I picked up a valued special gift for my finance, Terri.   We both picked out an ID bracelet, 14 ct gold and inscribed:  "Blau Diamant" -- two German words that carry an special, cryptic meaning for Terri and me.  It cost me over $800, but I feel that Terri ought to have a few precious keep sakes to have and to hold, because she is my queen, and we have some special plans for the future that no body can rip away from us. 

So, I got my stick welder up in U. P., some of my torch set, lines, gauges, cherry wood, moretools,  air compressor, etc.   I would like to carve in wood:  Ephesians 4: 26;  Galatians 4:16, an d1st Cor. 3:19, etc., and maybe create another foot stool, with something nice carved into it.  So much to do, and unfortunately, I hurt, strained my Left shoulder.... grrrr.  I went to the Iron Mtn., VAMC this morning, but my power scooter was dead and needed a re-charging.  I was also going to join the local YMCA today too!!  Well, I have not eaten all day, but promised that I would take Terri out for a fine, good, meal/  supper, where I could wear my brand new, OFF THE SHELF, blue jeans and a dress shirt, and right now I cannot find a darn belt to keep them up....  It's like the tale of two cities-- where half of my stuff is in my old house--Southern WI, and the other half is up in the Upper Peninsula or MI.  But we are getting organized.  We need to buy some more good eating apples, and I just happen to like Braeburn apples, but also pears, black grapes, and that is how I lose lots of weight! I call it my "fruit and pure water diet", and it worked well enough to lose over 70 pounds last year, but I was also emotionally stressed and distraught after losing two dear relatives in my immediate family.  Terri is certainly helping me mend my heart -- to start over, as I am sorry to say that I didn't get much support from my own family near Union Grove, WI, and the local Baptist church there, sorry.  A few of the brothers stopped by a few times, but I felt that it was a drop in the bucket, and I could have used some TLC and more kindness, instead of mend my 2nd total knee of the Left knee by a civilian doctor name James Shapira... a top notch surgeon who treated me well --- but did the home therapy after my replacement all by myself, dealing with everything else at the same time.  I must have dated a dozen women after a proper time to grieve my losses.  And it really hurt to be disabled after being a man of action, a  power lifter, biker, hard worker, and fast mover, so I had to also deal with some frustration, but perhaps God was preparing me for something/ someone really good and different, full of joy-- who needed a mature, loving, combat Vet, who had that pent up passion for love and life, as I did!! 

So, Terri and I both feel that God has blessed us BIG TIME, even thru some mountains and Vallie's, hurdles, FLAK, hidden enemies who just want to kill her joy, and perhaps control her-- so now we have THEM to pray for, and hope that they will see our happiness and joy-- and learn to live with it.  We are happy to have the freedom to study the Bible together in the security of Terri's home, and I believe that we will stay up here, and pretty much do what Terri desires...  I just want to make her happy, special, pretty lady, that she is.  I love to spend money on her and buy her gifts... as it gives me more special joy and good feelings inside.  

The definition of the term,  SARCASM, is:  A bitter or wounding remark.  I made a firm, hard commitment to change and remove sarcasm from my memory banks and refrain from striking back when I am hurt and wounded by others-- with the help of the Holy Spirit, much prayer and concentration.   I have quit many other things in the past that I thought were harmful and nasty for a growing Christian man to have and use, like smoking, drinking, road rage... lol, etc, etc., and I am a better human being for my hard work, and help from God.  I found out a few years ago that an average man, with an average IQ, but with the heart of a lion, can do pretty much anything he/ or she wants to do !!!  But it's more about God, and the power of the Holy Spirit helping a real, true, born-again Christian, who wants to try.  As most of you  already know,  it starts with a simple, humble, honest, heart felt prayer.....

Warm Regards,
Tommy Schuckman

What Makes Us Different?

Q. My question is, in the Bible it states that “the Devils also believe and tremble”. What is the difference between our belief that God is God and their belief? If they are full of sin and so are we what is the difference. Why am I saved when they’re not? The answer is probably right in front of me, but I can’t figure this one out.

A. The verse you have in mind is James 2:19, which says, “You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that – and shudder.”
Being disembodied spirits, demons believe there’s one God because they’ve seen Him and felt the effects of His judgment. But believing there is one God is not enough to save us. In order to be saved we have to believe we’re sinners in need of a savior, and that God sent His Son to die for our sins. Then we have to ask Him to be our Savior. That’s what gets us saved, and that’s what makes us different from them.

Biblically Hostile President.

Tom's Journal.

Hi Friends,
The phrase, "Man in the Door" alludes to the fact my job title in the 2nd tour of duty I pulled in RVN--South Vietnam, was, [Helicopter] "Door Gunner," with the well known, kick butt, 240th AHC, out of BearCat, RVN: 1969-70, but I already served my frist tour in a few different aviation companies, saw enough danger, death and mayhem with them Cu Chi, Bien Hoa, PhuLoi, 1968-1969, etc., and I am not strutting my stuff, but that term, Door Gunner just "I.D's" me so that other combat Vets know that I am truly one of them, that they can easily check it out,  and paid my dues for that short time that I served my country, about 3 years in the U.S.Army, with Honorable Discharge.  I wear many hats because I got interested in so many things --like Farming, Finance, Welding, carpentry, Chrysler car industry: 30.5 years, and then retired at age 54 with full pension and bennies... having mastered a few, got bored and then moved on to other things that piqued my interest, so I have a very expansive, adventurous, sometimes wild, interesting, but fruitful life time full of good and not so good memories and a wealth of deep subjects to share with a wide range of people.  I like to talk, visit, write, email, discuss and SHARE all my good things with other people with whom I can SOMETHING in common.  But my love for the Bible, and Jesus Christ tops them all, and my pretty, smart, girlfriend, Terri, is a close runner up.  Please bear these things in mind when you explore some of my thoughts and postings.  You are all welcome to comment, but only if you use constructive criticism and manners.  Thank you very much.  And I won't be posting for a few days-- got important business to do.

Warm Regards,

America’s Most Biblically-Hostile U.S. President

David BartonBy David Barton

Twitter Facebook Contact YouTube Amazon

When one observes President Obama’s unwillingness to accommodate America’s four-century long religious conscience protection through his attempts to require Catholics to go against their own doctrines and beliefs, one is tempted to say that he is anti-Catholic. But that characterization would not be correct. Although he has recently singled out Catholics, he has equally targeted traditional Protestant beliefs over the past four years. So since he has attacked Catholics and Protestants, one is tempted to say that he is anti-Christian. But that, too, would be inaccurate. He has been equally disrespectful in his appalling treatment of religious Jews in general and Israel in particular. So perhaps the most accurate description of his antipathy toward Catholics, Protestants, religious Jews, and the Jewish nation would be to characterize him as anti-Biblical. And then when his hostility toward Biblical people of faith is contrasted with his preferential treatment of Muslims and Muslim nations, it further strengthens the accuracy of the anti-Biblical descriptor. In fact, there have been numerous clearly documented times when his pro-Islam positions have been the cause of his anti-Biblical actions.

Barack ObamaListed below in chronological order are (1) numerous records of his attacks on Biblical persons or organizations; (2) examples of the hostility toward Biblical faith that have become evident in the past three years in the Obama-led military; (3) a listing of his open attacks on Biblical values; and finally (4) a listing of numerous incidents of his preferential deference for Islam’s activities and positions, including letting his Islamic advisors guide and influence his hostility toward people of Biblical faith.

1. Acts of Hostility Toward People of Biblical Faith:

  • 2010—While every White House traditionally issues hundreds of official proclamations and statements on numerous occasions, this White House avoids traditional Biblical holidays and events but regularly recognizes major Muslim holidays, as evidenced by its 2010 statements on Ramadan, Eid-ul-Fitr, Hajj, and Eid-ul-Adha. [49]
  • October 2011—Obama’s Muslim advisers block Middle Eastern Christians’ access to the White House. [50]

Many of these actions are literally unprecedented—this is the first time they have happened in four centuries of American history. The hostility of President Obama toward Biblical faith and values is without equal from any previous American president.
