Good Day, Friends,
What a great sunny Fall day this morning U.P. here where I live ! But the important move the 'President' has made regarding the InterNet, IMHO, is scary and just plain wrong ! Please access the short Video below and find out why. I love and enjoy my Freedom here in the USA, but being a History buff, I know that a nation/ people can lose everything in one short generation... as President Ron Reagan said. That is why I felt compelled to post this subject today, and then get busy trying to hang a close line outside, because my gas driven clothes dryer died and I just cannot afford a new one right now $$$, as they run about $800, and I am just renting here for a while.... for about 8 months now ! My, how a man's fortunes can change now days in the blink of an eye. But I know that I have changed for the better and try to use my brain before I engage my mouth these days. It's not so hard being a nice guy when you are usually dealing with other 'nice people...' And, I am thinking that being alone is not all that bad, either, some of the time. It gives me time to think about things.
And yes, God has blessed me with a good memory, as I reminisce about the good old days, and the 'not so good old days.' I used to stand night time guard duty in Vietnam: 68-70, and for a "Hot, muggy, humid, Tropical country," I could actually see my breath at night --- so it got a bit chilly at times, so surprised I was, at age 19, when I got over there ! And let me depart here for a moment/ change gears, please .... that ALL the good education, mentoring, schooling, fatherly advice that I got prior to my service in RVN [Nam] really helped me so much !! Pay attention to older, mature, smarter, wiser people !!! They just might save your life sometime ! And knowing what I know now, about the KJV Bible, etc., if God didn't save me from death over there and before, I would have surely ended up in HELL ! Because I wasn't yet Saved by the blood of Jesus Christ, yet ! In fact, there are so many times that I escaped death over in Vietnam, flying every day in Helicopters and on the ground, dodging rockets, mortars, bullets, etc., that I painted a 'motto' on the back of my Flight helmet: "Nine Lives." Yes, I am so very thankful that God kept me alive.... PTL --- Praise the Lord.
Something great happened to me last night in bed that really gave me encouragement ! I turned from my fav. 'rock n roll music station,' to get something else for a change. I landed on a good strong wave length, a Christian radio station, and program called, "Night Sound." [shown up above in this post]. And the kind gentleman was talking about the subject of "Suicide," and how the bible and Lord looks upon that subject. Wow! That fine Christian man. with a soothing low, deep, voice, made all the sense in the world, and also used logic and sweet kindness to make his point. I wish I would have caught the entire message, and prayed that I would remember it the next morning, today, and I did. Friends, I know about depression and Combat PTSD, and how many military people take their lives all the time ! I have had cousins and old friends take their own lives in the past, and I am NOT their judge, but it seems a waste to me, sorry to be so blunt and direct. If you or anyone you know is thinking or talking about taking their own life --- please contact me fast ! I honestly know what it is to be all alone, lonely, super depressed, feeling sorry about everything in the world, worried, and at the end of my rope -- so to speak. Write down my email address, please: email@example.com And if you email me, I might also give you my cell phone number, too, so we can talk. Also, pray to Father God in a mighty way and ask/ beg Him for help right then on the spot !
A few times in my own life, God put someone in my path to reach out and mentor me, and I so much needed that encouragement right at that dire time !! I firmly believe that God intervenes at the right time with all of His followers and servants, and He has helped me many times and stopped me from doing something STUPID ! I like to "pay my bills" on time, and had a good up-bringing, IMHO, even though my Dad was a bit harsh with me, being the 'first-born.' It was his way, or hit the high way. All that discipline paid off when I joined the Army and never had too much problem taking orders and obeying commands..... lawful commands.
We shall talk more about suicide and that Christian radio station, later. I just don't want to waste a precious sunny day without catching some healing "Rays" outside, or roasting some of my fav. Italian sausage on the grill, etc. And I will admit that too many 'rainy days and Mondays get me down.' That was a nice song by the "Carpenters."
