Old Blog's demise, new blog rising!

It has been a hassle in a month of difficult times, but we are finally switching to Word Press for our blogging at the suggestion of my nephew who just passed away as most of you know. Benny was going to do the transition for me, but now he is present with the Lord, so he simply needs to pray that we can get it accomplished.

For all of those who frequent and post, please register and we will try to get this thing rolling for the benefit of those who actually look to us for a word of encouragement or to be annoyed, whatever the case may be.

Just like St. Peter

I realized today that I have soemthing in common with Peter, namely that I struggle with my faith. I know God is there, and I believe in His son Jesus, but I still get mad at them when things aren't what I think they should be.

I have so many friends who are sick right now, and I am angry about it. My head knows God has a plan, but my heart is angry that these people and their families are suffering.

Please Lord, show me faith that accepts as Job accepted.

Benjamin speaks the TRUTH

Speaking of life, guess what? I’m still living! I believe we all should be thankful for the gifts our God has blessed us with, and the one gift he has given us all is life itself. Day by day in my life I’ve struggled with problems most people would let fade them into history, and trust me - I’ve seen it happen. Most might take seeing so much demise as a sign of where the future lies, but I take it as a sign to rise. Thats why I’ve devoted my life to Jesus Christ, and in him shall I rely upon until the day I die.
There is so much more to say, until then, every night I pray, that everyone might be saved. Let there be no hate. Remember - only God saves.

I read this blog from Ben (Tony's nephew, deceased in a house fire) and felt the presence of the Holy Spirit with me. GUESS WHAT? I'm STILL LIVING!

Truly we hear the words from beyond his mortal life, and the truth is apparent! Benjamin still lives, just not here!

Thank you Ben, for a life well and truly lived, a life that witnesses the glory of Jesus Christ!

In Loving Sympathy

I read with horror the note about the tragic deaths in Tony's family. I was immediately reminded of Job and his trials. Like Job, Tony has faith in Him, and like Job, Tony will use his faith to shine God's light for all to see, even as he grieves.

I will pray for all involved, for the souls of the children, for the parents and families, for the rescue workers and firemen, for all who have been touched by this loss.

The good news is that those blessed children are beloved of God, and are sitting with the Lord as we grieve. The sorrow we have is an earthly one, washed away forever in heaven.

Grace in Time of Need..

We would appreciate the prayers of all the saints as my sister lost 3 of her beloved teen-aged children this past weekend in an apartment fire near Marshall University in Huntington, WV. My 19 year old nephew Ben Lucas ( was a Marshall student living in the apartment building, and his younger sister Angel (17) was living with him and working in a Christian hangout for young people called the House of David. My youngest nephew Quentin (14) was visiting for the weekend when this disaster struck. At least 9 fatalaties have been reported, but certainly my sister has had to face what few mothers could ever imagine, and I have not even got over the shock of any of this at all.

God's grace has been great in this time of severe trial, and we ask all of you to keep our family in your prayers as we approach the schedule for services this weekend coming.

Christ will never leave us, nor forsake us!

Pray for another Ross

My Dear Friends, I ask you tonight to open a special place in your prayers for Ross, a young man who is struggling with seizures and will need a 2nd brain surgery. Please ask the Lord to guide the hands of his Doctors and to offer strength to Ross' family as they walk this dangerous path.

No 15 year old child should have to suffer like this, yet somehow the love of the Lord is hidden within all this. I surely don't understand, nor need I, but Blessed be the name of the Lord!

Blogging disasters...

I am still apologizing to everyone for the disaster of this new "beta blogger," and I am recruiting professional help to convert both this blog and my business blog over to WordPress, which I am told (by illuminated sources mind you!) is far superior to Blogger. Hopefully the transition will be complete before the weekend.

Hang in there with me everyone, but not by a rope, please!

Let There Be Peace on Earth

Let There Be Peace on Earth and let it begin with me.
Let There Be Peace on Earth, the peace that was meant to be!
With God as our Father, brothers all are we.
Let me walk with my brother in perfect harmony.

Let peace begin with me. Let this be the moment now.
With ev'ry breath I take, let this be my solemn vow;
To take each moment and live each moment in peace eternally!
Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me!

May we each keep this song in our hearts throughout every day of this year!

Acts of the Apostles

At Bible study this week we looked at the episode where Peter heals the paralytic simply by invoking the name of Jesus. After the earlier plea for Doug and helaing, I thought I would remind everyone who wonders if we are crazy to think of the power we each have been given through Jesus.

Christ has offered each of us the power of His holy name to use in works that proclaim His glory and His love for us. Let each of us invoke the name of Jesus Christ for Doug!
