What a fine Autumn Day, for a change, Sunday ! But after reading this article, I had quite a 'start' and then a strong 'slow burn' for our spineless, complicit 'Congress and Senate !' Seems like they all passed something having to do with the older Veterans getting shots... Senate bill, 1203, PLEASE READ !
Just when you think it's safe 'to go back into the water' some new monster is lurking in the weeds to bite you ! Remember: a leopard cannot change his spots. When I was a young teen ager on Dad's farm in Wisconsin, I showed him just how tame and well trained my big steer that I raised was that I had in a calf pen in the barn. And he said to me, "Tom, NEVER, but never, ever turn your back, or trust ANY animal --- no matter how much you trained him !" When I 'showed that big steer at the Racine County Fair, he weighed 1207 pounds ! And I got a good, fair price for him $$$, too ! Well, I pretty much trust our trained Rottweiler, but he will still steal my food, if I leave it out on my TV table while I go quickly to do something.... duh. Watch out... he loves cheese burgers ! And if you don't catch him IN THE ACT of stealing something, you cannot whip or punish him, because he won't understand, and he will think that his master is just plain MEAN and NASTY. I used to say years ago.... that a man ought to "train" and raise all, women, children and dogs, the same way.... with 'Love and Firmness.' But since then after much bible research, study and prayer, I have changed some of that rule. If the KJV Bible says that our wives will be, "Co-Inheritor's" with us in Heaven, with the same or higher 'rank' ---- we men ought to treat them as our "Co-Equals", now on earth.... according to Ephesians, Chapter 5, and other places in the Scriptures.
That's Right, The KJV Bible is a "Sword" "For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to he dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart." --- Hebrews 4: 12. Now, there is a lot of meaning and wisdom in that long scripture ! ! Take a minute and just think about it for a moment, please. ALL of the 66 books are inspired of God, but if you are new to the bible, where should you begin reading ? Since we are living in the 'End Times' and the Lord has promised to come back SOON, plus the Rapture, a person [IMHO], in my humble opinion, out to read the Gospel FIRST, and then the book of Romans, to learn all about Jesus Christ and Salvation, because that is Number One in our logical thinking .... Salvation and Heaven if we die, get killed for our Faith, or going up in the Rapture. After that, why not read the entire bible, from Genesis to Revelation, but at the same time, draw close to the Lord. I think that's the best way to go. And that is my humble opinion. Take care of the very, most important things first.... Priorities. If you buy a new car or truck, put good Insurance on it IMMEDIATELY ! Murphy's Law: 'If anything can go wrong --- It will !' That is why we have and use insurance, and also save some money for emergencies. These are all called, Emergencies ! If your child fell into the river while you were all fishing in a boat, what would you do right then ?? Save your child ! ! Well, then, it seems that the natural, RIGHT thing to do first--- is to find God, learn how to pray to Him, serve Him, do His Will, learn the Bible better, and then SHARE THE GOSPEL to most every one you meet, who has a "hearing ear." If you found a bag of gold, silver and cash, with no I.D. and you found out that you could legally keep it, what would you do first, and who would you tell ? It's the same with finding the Lord, Jesus Christ and getting 'Saved." You would share some of that great discovery with someone you truly love and trust, right?
I am friends with the kind, KJV Bible loving, Christian:
Bible Tracts, Inc. P.O. Box 188, Bloomington, IL 61702-0188. Founded by Paul J. Levin. I always keep a few small Bible Tracts from those folks, in my wallet, or pocket, and then size people up in my mind.... and then the Holy Spirit tells me what to say and do. So that is part of my Gospel sharing ministry, handing out Bible Tracts and 'Soul Winning.' At the very least, I am "planting seeds." My humble blog is also part of that ministry: TOM'S JOURNAL. We can also invite them to sit with us at the next Sunday worship service at our Bible loving, Christ centered church. You won't hear us begging or shaming people to give up their money, either. Usually, the Holy Spirit motivates us in kind, Christian giving, to pay for the electricity, plumbing, maintenance, etc.
Well, I will leave that up to you..... but I know I would first pay off, and pay down most of my bills.... with that bag of money and Metals, And then give SOME of it to my pretty, beautiful WIFE, Terri, who is so warm, cuddly, and gentle these days that she works at Rehab, in Kingsford, MI. She claims that the food isn't so good... but she doesn't want anything from the store that I could smuggle in for her.
I HOPE and pray that some of the stuff, below, is just a 'false flag.' Personally, I refuse to take ANY injections or needles/ shots, from the VA !! I have seen and heard of too much bad stuff, and bad medicine... sorry.
Hunters: Please be safe, and don't aim at human beings, just deer, and I love venison, and know how to cook it to perfection ! Use Onion and Garlic to bring out the natural flavor, guys and gals.
Wouldn't it be nice if a few more of my readers actually JOINED and SIGNED UP . On-Line, right here, right now, for this humble web site, and became loyal 'followers' of TOM'S JOURNAL ? ! ? Just go to where you see the pictures of other 'followers' and read the instructions on how to become a 'follower and regular 'reader' of my blog... and then it will come directly to your own private email box !! Have a good, Thanksgiving holiday. I will most likely have some Turkey Legs that I will cook and eat alone, but my faithful dog will be close, and I will feed him his own dog food.... Ha! Good Dog ! Smile.
I love my wife, Terri M. Schuckman. Please continue praying for her recovery and health status.
