Monday- Monday.

Tom's Journal.

I must report that this morning was a hectic one as I went to the Iron Mtn., MI 49801--VAMC [The local VA Hospital] to have my Left eye looked at by a doctor [civilian] who examined and told me that I have a 'FLOATER' in that eye, but it 'should go away in a month or so...'  PTL.  Not many folks in the world know much about those things, except that they "just happen" and not much can be done, I guess.  But it was the general lack of personal attention, care, slow, lazy people who are there just for the check/ money -- with no regard for the Disabled Combat Veterans!!! Sure, there are some good, kind, efficient staff and doctors there-- sometimes, but they are not the Norm-- they are the exception!   I contact,  make record and journal other Veterans who have been mistreated, had bad surgeries, by incompetent,. goofy "doctors" and the over whelming sum total doesn't look good for  the up coming "Obama-Care" coming down the pike... LOL!  And yes, we all can be laughing thru our tears, and SHAME ON US FOR SLEEPING IN CLASS AND IGNORING ALL THE WARNING FLAGS AND SIGNS, WHILE WE WERE ALL HIGH JACKED INTO A HORRIBLE SOCIALIST SOCIETY!!  The older Veterans know and remember what it was like before-- when they got some respect and proper care in the past....duh.    Where else but the Land of the Free and Home of the Brave, can you find tons of mismanaged money that helps and cotels Illegal Immagrants-- but dumps on it's disabled Veterans???  Sorry.... we LET the Socialist, bleeding hearts steal our money and funnel it to those who never paid into the system!  Shame.
    A good combat Vietnam Vet who served with the Australian Army over there says much of th esame is happening in his country, as they lose more rights and freedoms over in the L'and down under.'  OK,  I am not going to harp on this much more -- but I felt compelled to make my point-- because if we don't take care of ourselves --- who will ??

I would sooner vote for Amos and Andy, or Betty Boop, rather than getting another 4 tortureous years with the baffoon in the WH we have now.   [Only the older crowd will understand that one...Ha!]  

I have not eaten anything since yesterday's breakfast and still feel fine-- but after the VA weighing me up again today I thought I just MIGHT go on a fast to shave off those new unwanted pounds.  I would be very happy to lose another 60 pounds...  but my human genetics work against me -- ME THINKS.  I my eyes, my soon to be wife, is drop dead beautiful and I would not care of she did put on more pounds...  nothing can tear away my love for her, an dnow we seem to have found a good bible teaching church in town that we support, etc... plus we study the bible often and LOVE IT!!    I am nudging her toward my fav. KJV Bible, but if she insisted on using one of my old NASB's I will not complain, and I told her that from the get -go.   I will NEVER try to force anything down her throat, ever.  On the other hand, she is so smart and talented that I let her usually to have her own way with many ideas and powerful, logical reasoning.  Hey!  Life is just too darn short to be arguing all the time -- and for what??  I learned that valuable leason one year ago after my past wife, Sharon, moved on to heaven, and left me with just an old, faithful dog to hug, named, Deuce, the Rottweiler.  He has a new girlfriend too, called Freda, the German-Shepard, but they are both neutered and pretty much a brother/ sister team-- but close companions, and I am happy for him too.  Just think what grand joys Our Father brings to both man and beast. 

Terri has shown precious few, but trustworthy friends, her new engagement ring-- and now we are talking a 'major investment...'  Some of her finest attributes are her cheery smile [almost all the time], her beautiful blue eyes and blondish hair, and her high intelligence level-- so I know for sure that I am communicating with my intellectual equal in King's English.    Not a day goes by that I don't pray and thank my Lord for leading me to Terri, way back in January.  Getting women was not the problem -- but finding an honest, real Bible Christian lady who wasn't just after my retirement package and goodies, was a illusive, trying adventure, and man, I could tell you all some real, nasty stories of gold diggers, users, abusers, game players, etc.  And I know that finding a good man is hard too, from what I've heard.  And I well know enough that a woman will eventually 'see through' any fascade, or lies, so I always put my cards on the table and tell the truth with plenty of documents and sources. 

So many GOOD, honest Christian women are frustrated because they can't find a man on their level, with their values and temperment.  Of course it's still a learning process with anyone you meet and settle down with, but having a common bond, a Book that has all the rules, regs, blueprints for living, is the best foundation, IMHO.  [in my humble opinion.]  I will endeavor to teach her everything I know and different ways to do things -- but in the final anaysis, if it doesn't get any better-- it's good enough!  I happen to be into self improvement -- so I ASK Terri to correct me in kindness/ in private, so I can work on my shortcomings and character flaws, and it seems to work.  I bought Terri an expensive gold braclet with 2 German words on it [secret] that can be said if ever I am making a fool out of myself or saying something wrong or too confidentail, or if we are in eminent DANGER!  We shall go shopping for a few fine dresses for Terri,  soon,  maybe next week, for "special occasions" and try to cover all the details now so we don't have to rush around and hurry at the last minute.  It's fun to plan things.

Lastly, we DON'T know the day or hour of the Rapture, but we DO know the season.  Why don't we all work together in concert-- in harmony, to incite love and fine works, especially to those close to us in the Faith.  We are temporary residents here on earth-- knowing full well that Heaven is our home-- all those who bend knee, and kiss the Son.  If God is FOR us... who can be against us?? 
    "Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins."  ~1st Peter 4:8.

Today was just another day in 'Paradise' U.P. in the frozen tundra, somewhat bitter-sweet, that just had to be aired-- but I promise that this won't be the main course of my future posts.  I figure that IF some travesty doesn't get addressed right away-- it will just continue to get swept under the rug.  Jesus is Lord. 
I welcome any constructive, serious comments, friends.

Warm Regards,

Rain and Snow.

Tom's Journal.

IMHO [in my humble opinion] , the U.P. is a funny, unpredictable place to live or visit-- and a little bit like the mountains in Colorado, USA, where I have been for a short time also.  Friends have told me that you NEVER go for a ride in the Mountains without several important things to take with you;  A gallon of good  water, flashlight and batteries, perhaps an extra gallon or 2 of gasoline, a few hearty sandwiches, and a warm coat AND a warm blanket!  Maybe it's the little boy scout in me from Milwaukee, or some good survival training, plus 2 years in combat--Vietnam: 68-70, but I always take the basics 'tools' with me.  And unless you are a very close, trusted friend of mine who has come over to visit me at my home, I will not divulge all my personal secrets.  But ONE of those items will always be a KJV Bible, and I have different sizes, for different motives and places, including-- just giving them away for FREE!! 

Back at the U.P. [Upper Peninsula, MI.]  the weather has been intermittently raining all day, and just changed to snow.  My fiance and close friends all know that I am a 'betting person' -- but I never bet on something that I KNOW  I can't win.... so maybe it wasn't much of a 'bet' to start with.  Just like the coming Spring/ Summer weather, that I BET-- will be scary and hairy for sure, with many tornadoes and earthquakes in the USA THIS YEAR!!  Now just how do I know these things??  I also think that our economy COULD have a small 'spurt' of good news-- as it is 'manipulated' by the 'powers that be-- this current administration-- but only for a time, to get the votes.  Generally speaking, however,  housing, and Wall Street, and the economy, jobs, will continue a 'slow burn' so that things will get from bad to worse, with internal tensions, crime, greed, and deprivation making men fearful and depressed....   sorry folks.

The only good news is:  That God will never forsake His own people-- the elect, the Born-Again Christian followers of the Lord Jesus Christ who openly confess, bend knee and serve...  'We will never beg for bread...' we see in the book of Psalms - from King David.  But we will see some hard times for sure, and will have to learn to live lean.  Just remember that our hard times will only be momentary-- temporary,  because our Lord and Master will step in at the proper time!!  He knows and sees his people being murdered and persecuted every day on earth, but He will keep his mighty sword sheathed until the proper moment in time when HE WILL RETURN TO GATHER UP HIS ELECT, CHOSEN PEOPLE!   So with this good news we can be happy and joyful with what we have, with out the garbage type of  life style, station in life,  but with a 'roof, clothes and food' - we shall be content - according to the apostle Paul. 

I am having hamburgers with grilled onions tonight -- but just think:  supper could just as well be the onions and nothing more.. or dog food!!   I have personally seen terrible poverty and was even homeless for a very short time in cold, windy, heartless Milwaukee in the Winter of 1994-95, and had to drop out of college, the 2nd time, early, to take a  job welding foreman, over some very hostile ghetto people who hated me just because of my skin color [German-American] and the fact that I earned more than them-- but I had much experience and schooling behind me from years past.....duh.   Not long after that experience, I got called back to Chrysler in May of '95, and finished my 30 years with full pension and bennies.  Now... is that LUCK???  The answer is NO!  Actually, when I was homeless and desperate, I DID find the Lord, confessed my sins, asked Him into my life and heart, and vowed to try harder to give my life to Him --Jesus, and things shortly after started to get better in my life.  But I am STILL A SINNER, and still have much to work on, learn, share, teach, grow, etc.

If my Lord grants me another two months, I feel that I will experience a 'quantum leap'  in the 'warmer weather' where I will find a good, bible teaching, preaching home church, and re-start my bible sharing/ handing, out ministry and hook up with the right people who can help me net work to go soul winning again and also reach some folks who need to be reached about the Gospel of Jesus Christ, as best as a crippled, bionic knees, and one of them [R] messed up by the Milwaukee VA... Disabled, Veteran can.  I have an old Dodge Ram 2007, 4 by 4 vehicle, but am think [JUST thinking, 'dear one'...] of buying an XR650L, on/ off the road dirt bike that can climb the hills and mountains where I presently am calling home, sweet home.  I've already got tangled in some 'briars' but the Holy Spirit got me out of that situation, so that now I can pray for those who oppose me, if they still do.  If those folks do read this humble column-- please know that I am a very peaceful man with some hobbies, like other God-fearing men have, and no body need fear me.  I seek not war nor battle, but PEACE, just as my Master does.  One of my fav' . scriptures is:  "For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain."  A few  unlearned people tell me that I talk about death too much...but death is all around us and I have no illusions as to what death is!  It is nothing more than a GATEWAY to everlasting life!  And MOST folks have it all wrong, including my believed, dear, old Mom, in Wisconsin... who claims that only the 'good people go to heaven -- the holy Saints-- like Mother Theresa, etc!'  Therefore, I don't have a snow ball's chance in a 'hot fire' to gain salvation and heaven --- in her opinion.  But then, Mom never did read the Bible, and that grand BOOK also comes in audio tapes, and CD's that I have and can direct others with vision problems to get, easily.  In fact,  I am going to suggest/ ask Terri if she would like to both follow with her own Bible, and listen to a special Scottish gentleman reader of the Bible at the same time-- sometime soon!   I will let you all know how it goes.

Be of good cheer, dear brother, sisters and friends!  And please continue to pray for me.  My cute, handsome grandson, who broke his leg during a skiing accident a few weeks ago, is now doing well!!  Thank you for praying for him too.

Warm Regards,
Tommy Schuckman

Hal Lindsey Report.

Tom's Journal.

The fine gentleman, Hal Lindsey, is a very respected Bible and Prophecy teacher, scholar, who also has his fingers on the pulse of Israel, and all other world blood pressures. 

Being in a promised, committed relationship, with all honor and dignity, looking to get married soon,  I am torn between living a few precious years with the lady of my dreams -- but at the same time, I want to do God's Will by continuing my serious Bible studies and also sharing the Gospel of Salvation with everyone that I meet, as the Holy Spirit guilds me.  I have already made serious decisions and "tucked in" Terri with my Chrysler Humana system, and life insurance recipient, etc.... in case I croak too soon, she will be taken care of.  IF, IF, I put God first, I know that everything will turn out well for me!  Surely God sees my heart and motives.  See: Hebrews 13:4, etc.  And Hebrews 4:12,  "For the Word of God is quick [alive] and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart."  And... repeat, repeat, that we DO NOT know that the day and hour-- NOBODY KNOWS!!  But we, learned, studied men and women DO KNOW the season!  Terri wants to learn all these deeper points, and totally respects my Bible knowledge and teaching--[I've got her memorizing all 66 books of the Bible-- and she is so smart!!  It's like a mental game with us, and we have so much fun as I interject some humor into our discussions and bible readings-- and sometimes quiting early if I sense that she has had a hard day and cannot concentrate that well.]  -- but I have a hot fire in my gut, as I constantly read about new things in the Middle East going down-- that fulfill Bible Prophecy, so dramatically-- that would have been unheard of just a few years ago. {if my knees and back were better-- I would love to travel to Israel, and learn Hebrew there while taking in all the sights...IF Terri would like that sort of thing... dreamer boy..LOL!}   But prophecy IS coming true right in front of our eyes every single day.  The majority of the world feels the heat, and realizes that "something" is amiss, but they know not the TRUTH of the Bible, just like the: "3 blind mice."

So the age old question is: 'What is our main Priority in Life, right now??'  Are we studied enough to feel that we ought to share the Gospel with others and teach them about Salvation, and the urgency of it RIGHT NOW??  Or are our main interests, money, property, house, showy display of one's means or station in life, and all kinds of pride and foolishness?  Personally, I feel like I am 'beating a dead horse' half the time, but then I come across some younger ladies and men who don't even know the basics or were raised with out knowing beans about Jesus Christ, the Gospel, Salvation,  that we can all be Saved and know that we will be in heaven-- for SURE-- I can't help but give them a Bible tract that explains much of the SALVATION OF GOD.   My email address:
I humbly ask you all to pray for my 2 children to listen, heed, and remember the recent things I have shared with them, AFTER I escaped that nasty, deceiving JW-cult... the 'church of the poisoned mind' that held me captive for 22 long years, after I came home from RVN - 'Nam-- hurting/ searching for the 'Real Truth' but instead got the twisted, corrupted version of their invented bible-- the "New World Translation" that has tampered with, and relegated Jesus Christ to a lower level-- some angel, instead of the rightful 'Word of God' -- God the Son. [John 1:1,  "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." ~KJV Bible... the most accurate and truthful Bible on earth.  But I allow Terri to use the NASB, if she wants, as it is just easier to read and understand, for now... Terri is my equal, my 'co-pilot', my loving, much respected, mate for life, and she is NOT my slave or servant!  
     The JW's took the "liberty" to insert the words:  'The Word was A god."   What a shame, a sham, and big time sin!!!   -- Our Lord, Jesus, through with we can all gain true Salvation-- and He is the ONLY ONE through which we can and will gain forgiveness, and everlasting, perfect life in heaven, forever, without any fear or tears!!  NOT some human organization on earth, who have twisted and truncated the New Testament to suit their own misguided, unholy  errors.  They are under a curse and need to read the last chapter of Revelation, concerning the "adding onto, or taking away, any words of the original Bible !!!   And these folks from the Watchtower also hate my guts and would not shed a tear if I dropped dead tomorrow -- but I obey the Word, not the Watchtower...  sorry folks, God 'allows' some of his servants on earth to be killed for their faith and beliefs, and then I would be a martyr, and build up my 'treasures in heaven.'  
  --and get right with the Lord-- even as I, myself, will finally get my things in order SOON!  And yes,  we all have our "crosses to bear" as things get much worse, hard to survive and hold on to a few things we have.  Some, or most of the stress, we have made and brought down upon ourselves -- if we really examine our hearts and motives, me included.  'Lord, forgive me in your mercy and kindness.. and not in your wrath.'

Have a great day!

This week on 'The Hal Lindsey Report'
Syria, North Korea, Indonesia, Egypt, Russia, Iran, Pakistan, Turkey, China, Israel.... The news headlines of this week alone put flesh on the bones of the predictions of the ancient prophets.

The only way I can put some of these developments into the proper perspective is to say that we are seeing end-times prophecy literally exploding before our eyes. National alignments and strategic threats thought almost impossible only a short time ago are now reality.

That starkly signals one thing to me: the Rapture of the Church is getting closer with each day that passes!

But, America is filled with churches and pastors who haven't preached, taught, or thought about the Rapture in years. In fact, we'd probably be surprised at how many ministers don't even believe that Christ will return to snatch away His true believers in a blinding flash.

This week, I'll answer some of the questions that many of you have about the timing and order of events leading up to the Rapture of the Church, then to that time of terrible tribulation on the earth. We'll discuss which prophecies, if any, remain to be fulfilled before these events can occur. We'll also look at the Age of Grace. What is it and when will it end? We'll discuss exactly what will trigger the end of this current Age. That moment is known only to the Father. Even Jesus in his human nature said He didn't know the hour or the day of that event. This Age began with a mystery and a miracle and will end with a mystery and a miracle.

I believe we live in the most exciting time in history. And maybe one of the scariest! That's why it's urgent that you make certain your family, your friends, your neighbors, and your co-workers have received the gift of pardon that Jesus makes available to them. The events I discuss this week could happen at any moment, even today. You do not want them to be on this earth after the Body of Christ departs! Get ready!

PROGRAMMING NOTE: Remember, "The Hal Lindsey Report" can be seen on Inspiration Network in its new time slot, Sunday at 1:30 p.m. Eastern, 12:30 p.m. Central, 11:30 a.m. Mountain, and 10:30 a.m. Pacific.

Don't miss this week's Report on TBN, Daystar, Inspiration, CPM Network, various local stations, or Please check your local listings.

God Bless,

Brother, can you spare a Unit?

Tom's Journal.

As soon as you read a great post some where and think it will never be 'topped' -- along comes another one that is better and more exciting, so it seems!  Well, this is a somber time for many as we dwell  upon the painful, shameful death of our Lord, Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, for whom we [real, Saved Christians] may be asked to lay down our lives.  And even for other brothers and sisters in various congregations, whom we cannot get along with-- how will that work?  And I remember some unhappy times during the 'holidays' where old, sore wounds were opened up again, with hard feelings, and darts of ill feelings surfaced, e

Well, there is bigger fish to fry right now when we strip off the smiley faces and photo ops, where heads of state smile only when the cameras are on.  I just heard a special, brilliant gentleman speak at the small humble church that I started going to a while ago, who had many high degrees in ancient languages, and deep studies of the Bible, etc., whom I also believe teaches at Hebrew University in NY., etc., who is a 'Mesianic Jew' and quite a great teacher/ preacher who goes to Israel every year, etc.  He told us about the Israeli mentality and who they trust [certainly not THIS American administration that back stabs him every time he turns around]  In other words, it just ISRAEL against all her surrounding  Muslim neighbors !!  But, as I've repeated hundreds of times-- even though the people of Israel are super smart inventors and brave warriors, it will be GOD who will win this next coming war for her!!!  The true God that few of them really acknowledge, Jeshua! 

Please read the long, but super fine, interesting info that I usually trip over with my big, clumsy feet.  Just get comfortable, sit back, and enjoy the read, you will love it.  I am home alone, taking care of the 2 dogs, one German Shepard female, and my Deuce - the Rottweiler, and they are now very good friends and companions, playing all the time, or sleeping side by side, but none of them can reproduce, and that's fine too. 

If I don't post again for a while, please let me wish you all a "HAPPY RESURRECTION DAY !!"  The term:  'Easter' wrongly occurs once in SOME bibles, but when researched, means, the Germanic goddess of fertility and Spring, certainly a pagan thing that was used to drag more people into the church with forced conversions, lures, etc.  But what ever you want to call this Friday and Sunday, please let it not be another excuse for a drunken party or pagan get together, and then wrap your car around a tree and be sorry for the rest of your life....and take the life of an innocent person.

Have a great, blessed, healthy, happy day!

Warm Regards,

Dangerous but Doable.

Tom's Journal.

I certainly adhere to all this news and print, and I believe that all or most of the churches  I attend also believe in what the author publishes here too!  If that makes me a 'radical' or 'dangerous' individual, let the Socialist powers that be take my head.   Jesus is my personal Lord and Savior, and heaven is my home.  I have been studying these Bible truths for many years and promoting this kind of  knowledge in my humble Blog for a few years now.

Dear friend of Israel,


That’s the conclusion of the most reliable Israeli sources regarding a preemptive strike on Iran. Our own Secretary of Defense, Leon Panetta has said he expects an Israeli strike to take place sometime in the Spring or early Summer time frame. While the exact time is known only by Israel, the action is inevitable. And we can be sure that at least two of Iran’s client organizations, Hamas in Gaza and Hezbollah in Lebanon will be in the mix as well. This could fulfill Zechariah’s prophecy (12:1-9). In any case, it would be the time Israel deals with nests of Jihadists that surround them, rejecting an imposed cease-fire until the mission is accomplished.

Meanwhile, it is reported President Obama promised Israel super-bunker-buster-bombs and planes that can make a round trip to Iran without refueling - IF Israel will delay actions until after the 2012 elections. Expect further promises as the time draws nearer. Some of these promises could well have Biblical dimensions. Israel has already indicated they will attack without consulting the U.S if they deem the threat warrants immediate action. 2012 promises to be a critical “year of decision” for Israel.


The overriding mission of The Jerusalem Connection is to inform, educate and activate support for Israel and the Jewish people. This becomes more timely and crucial every day as many in the world turn against Jews and Israel; as enemies of Israel speak of “wiping them off the map”; as forces in our own secular academia join together to degrade and delegitimize Israel; as anti-Semitism grows. This goal dictates our priorities and our actions. As Christian Zionists, we support the modern state of Israel as a partial fulfillment of God’s covenant promises to provide a homeland for the Jewish people. We say “partial fulfillment” because we believe the ultimate fulfillment will take place when Messiah returns. Jesus clearly said who he was and why he came. We know his disciples and tens of thousands of early followers received him. We believe the coming Messiah will be the same Jesus who was born in Bethlehem over two thousand years ago. Meanwhile, we seek to :

CONFIRM the present validity of God’s covenant to Israel. (Gen.17:7-8)
CHAMPION Aliyah: the re-gathering of the Jews to Israel. (Isa. 49:22)
CONFRONT Anti-Semitism. (Psalm 83:1-4, 18)
COUNTER Replacement Theology/ Supersessionism. (Rom. 9:4; 11:1-2)
CONTEND for God’s heart for Israel & the Jewish people. (Jer. 32:40-41)
COMFORT Israel and the Jews through ministries of mercy. (Isa 40:1-2)
CONNECT with the Hebraic roots of Christianity. (John 4:22)


Pat completed 12 weeks of chemo therapy, followed by a successful laparoscopy surgery February 21. She now begins the follow up chemo, which will last from 9 to 18 weeks. The doctors informed us this week that the serious pain that brought her to the emergency room saved her life. He actually said, “She would have passed by now if she had not come in when she did." He went on to say we should be very encouraged at her positive response to the chemo and surgery. While doctors don’t give prognosis, we stand on the promises of God for her full recovery (Matt. 8:17; Acts 10:38; I Peter 2;24). We praise God for the prayers of so many of you for Patty. You find out who your friends are when hard times hit. Your cards, notes, gifts and love has so moved our hearts and given us great joy and encouragement. Thank you so much. Pat asks, “Keep it up!”


Also please continue to pray with us about a permanent home for Pat’s Auschwitz Album Revisited paintings. Although we cannot plan an exhibit this summer, Pat has been asked to take the artworks to two European countries and she continues to work on new paintings as she can. We put a new painting on our website last week. There have been contacts with some of the Holocaust museums here and elsewhere – so we ask you, our partners, to join us as we turn that over to our Heavenly Father!! Meanwhile, you may get a giclee (archival p rints) of any of the paintings by going online or by writing to the office.


As you can see, we are soldiering on with what God has called us to do. We are in this end time fight together. We could not do the work if you did
not do what you can do. So pray for us and remember The Jerusalem Connection in your offerings and charitable giving.

In addition to monthly needs, TJCI needs a new(er) ministry vehicle. We have a 1997 Dodge Caravan with over 200,000 miles that has served us well, but the repair bills the last five months have made us realize the time has come. If you have a later model van in good condition that you would be willing to donate, as a 501(c)3 organization we are authorized to give you a tax exempt letter. I am willing to come and get it where ever it is. In any case, please pray with us about this need.

Go to our website to sign up for a monthly gift or a make one time online donation.

Or mail your donation to:
The Jersualem Connection, International, PO Box 20295
Washington, D.C. 20041


Be assured, for every donation that comes to us, regardless of the size, I personally pray for you. I put Yahweh’s name on you, by name, for his blessing according to Numbers 6:22-27. Also, our wonderful staff prays at the coming & going of each one. The two Marilyns (our faithful volunteers) sound the shofars each Tuesday over all the letters! We all feel like we have a family scattered over the country: praying for us, supporting the work, and caring! May His blessing be yours!

Another Great Sunday.

Tom's Journal.

4-1-12     ...  TOM'S JOURNAL.    April 1st,  2012.  Goal for this  week:  Join the Iron Mountain, MI  YMCA !!

That weather teaser we all had a few weeks ago really messed us up into thinking that an Early Spring had sprung, from bottom up!   Much to do, and surely thought that marriage and engagements were in the air too.    

I tried the 2nd church today and met the Pastor for a short talk -- and not to brag, but the congregation was praying for some individual who was recently unemployed and needed some resources --catch my ear, and so I reached deep into my pocket and pulled out some cash-- a 'C-Note' and tucked into the Pastor's palm along with my business card, even though I already wrote out a [Tithe] check for $40, with my phone number and email address, and info.   I think that my fiance would like to drop anchor there and become members in about 2-3 months.  After the main service, I was invited down stairs to a good supper and shook hands and got to know a few people, and that's how it's done.   That's how long time friends are made in the 'brotherhood' / Congregation/ church..  The term, "Church" is not a building, stone, concrete, wood and  roof with a piano and organ inside.   It's the 'body of people/  human beings with God's Holy Spirit, being present in each and every one up stairs and down stairs!!   --And the world wide congregations

It is a bit stressful the first time, getting to know all the different kinds of people inside the 'building'  -- the real blood and guts people, moms, dads, uncles, aunts, fathers, and pastor who guilds them on...  ounce we know each other and that real bond of trust  to hold each others' hands and pray hard, when things get tough.  Being there at one's death bed reassuring the dying, and preparing them for the next journey into heaven.   But also knowing become  that our temporary bag of bones, flesh and blood bodies that will be left behind in exchanged for everlasting forms unknown, and what a happy, godly adventure that will be, with Jesus Christ, our Savior.  

So, on with the show here on earth, spreading the real Truth of the Gospel of Salvation, and now [perhaps] finding a "home church" not too far away from us, from where I rest my weary head has the most importance in our steam/ flow of time/ life, and learn / know how God is going to 'develope things in this finale.' And how it will affect us in the frozen Tundra.    Got to again write down my responsibilities, priorities, most important things, profiles of fish studies in the Northern woods and surrounding woods.  Recording things in my Blogs/ Journals/ emails, so that can we may  measure we might realize time.

Again,  our most important J.O.B. ON EARTH IS TO MAGNIFY AND BRING GLORY TOP GOD`!  2nd job on earth is to work hard, save, invest, and bring joy and happiness to our spouses and happiness to ourselves, families.  

I want to bring safe harbour, less stress, more money into our up coming union/ marriage, less stress, more action, maybe bike and horse riding.  I might want to do a private talk with the intelligent pastor soon to get his view points on Combat PTSD, etc., hunting, fishing, for the disabled soon, while the fish are biting.   Also want to sit down and build, write down or main priorities on paper with my girl friend, and we ARE engaged now.   We need to buy Terri a few more dresses for church, and going out, and I need 2 more white dress shirts.   Join the YMCA in I. M. --MI...and get further tucked in with Medical Insurance for Terri, so that will be one more thing she has to worry about.

Did I miss anything??   Time for me to wash up, clean up, put some  groceries away, hide the cake I bought...  and relax by watching the runny 'News' that will be flying by me today.

Sorry folks, I was falling asleep at the key board again, before, and I must not be getting the right kind of quality beauty sleep up here with this new CPAP machine that helps my nose repair/ heal.  It's give -- and take...  but my nose is finally healing with out the intense pressure it had on it before. 

My friend from Kansas, Mark Eisenhower advised me to talk more  about funeral preparation, getting things down legally on paper BEFORE you die, or get killed.  I went thru pure hell when my dear wife, Sharon, passed away last April 9th, 2011, and again with my dear son, Andy, who was killed the very next month, May 10th, 2011, while I was also going thru another total knee replacement--  and catching a horrible VERSA infection at Kenosha, WI., Memorial hospital.  And that is when I fired on doctor who was so verbally abusive to me, and put another turkey "doctor" in his place too.   I will NOT be abused!!  And I try hard never to be aggressive toward any hospital staff either....  but I am not some bum, or illegal alien who just walked in off the street.  I worked very hard all my live-- Chrysler:  30.5 years, and put in 2 hard years in Vietnam too, serving my country, combat helicpter aviation....  so I insist on being treated like a normal, honorable human being.  Period.    I have already told my fiance that I want, insist on having a simple, inexpensive Christian, and Military funeral, and already have a plot of ground out side of Kenosha, WI.,  or I can be buried for free at the Union Grove Veterans' Cemetary, where my father is also buried,  as he was U.S. Navy [Seabees in WW-2, Saipan, Pacific theator.].  I will leave her with plenty to live on, just as my Dad left a lot to my Mom, after he passed away.
But the wealth of knowledge I am teaching her NOW is worth more than what I have already given her, already. 

Thank you, Mark, for all your help and advice to me one year ago, when I needed somebody to heal and teach me about funerals, etc.  I feel that I now know enough to save others mucho pesos when death knocks at their home.  Just email me.

Warm Regards, and now I must bandage my finger tips.
