I understand the elite and the rich have their agendas and this one caught mine big time. First, how could it be that so many fires began at the same time in different areas? Watching the videos, WHY are the fires WHITE HOT with melting everything BUT trees and shrubs? The melting looks like what happened in 911.... I believe this is the devil working his hardest along with evil minions to do his bidding, Georgia “Guidestones”, hurricanes with blue lightening? Blue lights on videos of the fires and how is it that the fires are so specific block by block? As a born again soul, Ive never heard of such evil yet the worst is to come. May God have mercy on us who survive and protect us as His children. https://www.aircrap.org/2017/10/14/how-and-why-california-fires-were-dew-created-agenda-21-via-lasers/
BacKaran replied to MorningGlory's topic in Controversial IssuesCletus, you can rest assured we the citizens have been paying for this nasa foolishness for decades.....
God cannot lie so it was obviously the devil who made you think something was coming when it wasn't. God is always working in the background for our good, even tho we may never see the workings this side of heaven. Job asked God why....and God never did answer Jobs question but He revealed more of Himself to Job and Job repented for complaining. Emotions come and go which is why there are so many politically correct people in this fallen world, dont wanna hurt someone's feelings. Well, until that person understands and accepts the Truth, they are sinners who are lost without God, they will always be offended by the Truth. I tried to sell my house and it was a really Hot market in MN, still is. I couldn't sell the darn thing after updating it so I said, God is saying no, perhaps I need to stay another 30 years. My focus for selling was to make money for my retirement. Once I returned my focus to God, He met all my needs in quick time. I saw a condo a friend suggested and in a week I had it, my house sold to the first buyer and I moved within a month and closed on my house and condo on the same day. Why had I struggled for two years? My focus was all wrong. Once God showed me I need to trust in HIM not money or a sale, all things worked out for His glory and my good. Its not always worked that way, Ive been rebuked many times but the fire makes one stronger in God. Village School of the Bible.org is a great online expositiroy and hermeneutics bible study. I have taken it four times, its a class you pay for as it has college credits to it but dont let that stop you from signing up. Ask Trish for a scholarship. FOr instance, I was taking it again this fall but health reasons stopped me so I donated my class money to the scholarship fund, just for people like you! May we be able to assist you on the narrow road to know God and His attributes, Jesus and His love for us that He took our sins and gave us HIS RIGHTEROUSNESS so that we may live eternally with Him. Please keep asking questions!! This is how you will grow! Join a bible study if you can and ask your church pastor if they are preaching expositorially and her hermeneutics...thats line by line preaching the Bible in its correct context. May God richly bless you as you go forth in your journey! BACKaran
My neighbor Helen with memory loss.
She is 77 and it appears that her two sons have dumped into this condo community to not deal with her memory issue or they are in deep denial she is as bad as she is.
I have called the social services and two social workers did stop by to do an assessment in Sept. Since I asked to remain anonymous, I wont hear any updates on what the county is planning on doing.
Helen's memory has declined since I moved here in July.
I was taking her shopping and to church, then I got sick for 6 weeks.
I made some goodies and wrote a letter to her sons, they were picking her up for THanksgiving and I said I can no longer help her shop due to my own illness.
She has lost weight, is forgetting more and more and is really confused. At coffee this morning I spoke with the group and Helen was there too, having coffee.
They noticed Helens response to things was out of context. She would get all excited in the middle of a conversation that had nothing to do with excitement. In church she would talk out loud, which is fine but her bursts of inappropriate laughing were disconcerting to me.
Please pray that if any of us call for a welfare check on Helen, that the cops or the county would put pressure on the sons to take action.
Its been an interesting year for me with many blessings and heartaches and through it all, God has more than overflowed my cup and met my needs!
Thank You Lord for helong each us take care of each of us while we can. Amen.
My 95 year old mom in law.....love her!
I was feeling good so my daughter drove us to see Grandma in Rice Lake WI. This past week.
We took her out for lunch and shes declining in her health.
She made some comments that are very out of charachter for her so I chatted with her neice who lives near by. My mom in law lives with her sister in a town home.
I suggested Mom use her cane or walker as she was unsteady. I think her pride is saying she doesnt need either one.
We had a lovely time together although it was short.
I called the neice and I said I'm going to call Granmas sons, who I havent heard from since my hubbys death 7 years ago. I was sick when Grama turned 90 and she was disappointed no one had a surprise party for her, so muy intent was to call the sons, let them know of her current condition and that at age 95, she's lonely and needs her sons around her.
I told the oldest son about my dad dying recently and I said I had the opportunity to tell him all I ever needed to say which was a blessing. I see my mil more than the brothers call her or see her.
I said I am saying this out of love, I think one of the brothers should take her for the winters months fo a change of scenery and her fear of falling with snow and ice. I reminded them of all she;'s done for me and I did ask if she would move in with me but I'm not really settled in my new place and I have health and surgery issues coming up soon. I suggested that with her decline in stability, perhaps the sons could have her live with them so she feels closer to family rather than her sisters family.
I call Granma each week or so and I said she needs to feel needed. She shouldn't be driving in my opinion but unless she falls and enters a nursing home, she's in really darn good shape!
The oldest brother was thankful for my calling and letting him know, He said he was going to contact his brother, nephew and neice and see what they can come up with.
Please pray with me for Lois, that her sons would do right by her and ask her to live with one of them the rest of her days. She said she wished to go home to Walker, MN but she's most likely the only one alive that she knows in town, plus the town has changed since my hubby died, its not like it used to be.
Change is hard on everyone and I pray Lois feels comfortable in telling her sons what she needs. I pray they respond better to her and I thank God for all He has let me do with her these past 33 years. Its funny to think I have more years with her than I did with her son! But that's life and God will work this all out for His glory.
Thanks for reading and catching up with me. Please thank God for who He's blessed in your life!
Thank you for all your prayers, my dad passed away on October 30th this year.
I was feeling really good so after a trip to the chiropractor and I visited my dad that afternoon and I knew it was the last time I would see him.
I told him I loved him, gave him a back rub, held his hand and rubbed his head and face..touch is so important to me. There was a hospice journal on the windowsill I'd not seen before. Apparently this was the second one where people wrote it in about my dad and their visits. Mostly just how he felt, what he ate or if he was in a good mood etc.
I thought it was wonderful so I wrote a few pages in it stating I have my dad the gospel message and was hoping to see him in heaven!
That was Friday.
On Monday my sister called me, to say he'd passed and so we went to see him, my daughter and I got to say our last goodbyes.
I read from my bible and my sisters, their husbands and one brother walked out of the room.
My heart wails for them as they dont know Jesus.
I told my daughter, this is why you need to know Jesus, at the end it's just you and Him and the more you know your Bible, the more you will know Jesus.
I saw the journal in my sisters purse and asked both sisters if I could read what I wrote at his funeral. SUre, that's fine.
Well I began getting ill again and thought I would try to go to the funeral if my daughter drove me. THen I got an email from my sister. The Roman Catholic Church has rules...I could read what I wrote but it had to be typed, double spaced and reviewed by a rc priest before I could read it at the funeral.
Now it was just family at the funeral and I thought I would go even though it is a Roman Catholic funeral. However, feeling ill, not wanting to see my homosexual neice and her "friend", cuz my rc siblings would take that as an approval from me so I decided it best not to go. Plus I didnt have a printer to print out my pages.
I told my sister I wasn't going to attend and she said we need a reader and someone to bring up the gifts.
I said gifts? What gifts? She meant the rc tradition, I think its new, for the family to bring up the sacrament to the alter with the wine.
Ok, i made my peace with God and told my sister I was unable to attend but my daughter would.
My son and his wife couldn't take time off work, that's how they are. My son "disowned" me after I came out again homosexuality and then found out the neice was having a pretend wedding...it was all very sad.
So, I havent heard from any of my siblings and I really don't expect to. A friend asked about the will and I said you know, i didnt expect anything from Dad, I told him he needed to use all his money for HIS CARE as none of us are lacking for matieral thing. So I hope he used all his hard earned money.
ITs very hard to see death separate a family but its not death, it's their rejection of CHrist in their lives.
I prayed for my dad, saw him twice a week and I was blessed to be there right before he passed.
God is good, He's working all things out for HIS glory and there's nothing else I can ask for thats better than God. AMen!
Hello everyone, MERRY CHRISTMAS!
I thank God for all that's been happening since Sept.
I have very good news from my new ENT! I'm having ear surgery in January. I suffered for 30 years with Ménière's ear disease and have lost some hearing in both ears. The New Dr Papperella, is a wonderful expert in the ENT field and he says surgery is possible, I have otosclerosis and NOT MENIERES. Otosclerosos mimics meneries disease, I never got vertigp but in August - Sept had a 6 week "episode" of OTO. I was sick to my stomach for 6 weeks, saw three doctors who had no idea and now I have hope!
Dr Papperella says I wont go deaf and surgery can restore most of my hearing!
I was stunned!! I am so thankful and then I will have the other ear done later in the year.
NO more hearing aids! Stunning, I can't imagine hearing well, its hard to take in. Will it be TOO Loud for me to handle? Will I have to wear earplugs for loud noises? I'm giddy and excited and afraid but God is directing it all.
Please get a second or third opinion if you have been diagnosed with Meniers Disease, it may not be!!
God gets all the glory! Amen!
Thank you God for leading me to people who can help. I WAS TOLD BY UREGENT CARE THAT I HAD THE FLU, ear infections and a sinus infection.....saw my ENT doc three days later, I have no sinus or ear issues or flu...it's MENIERES EAR DISEASE! He told me stop all the meds given me by the urgent care doc and that it was a waste of money...great.
I was diagnosed decades ago but this doc I was seeing tossed me back to my general doc for other issues claiming they are not related to menieres. I have been in bed for weeks with earaches, loss of hearing, nausea and fatigue.....I'm dumping my ent for an expert in the filed, I see them next week.
Im learning patience and I think I passed the Test!
now im helping a neighbor with memory issues until a social worker comes out to do an assessment on her. Poor thing! I am bringing her to church with me to get her out and about. Today we went grocery shopping and had Burger King for lunch!
because my ear disease gets worse as I get older, it comes no goes for as long as it wants....6 weeks this time or short for just a few minutes, I won't be on here as much until after the new year. By then I hope to have meds in place, a new diet and hoping for a great expert for my doctor!
praying for everyone, trust in God asHeis all we need!!!
Gosh, i learn new things each day I....
Ive been feeling queasy for over a week with nasal allergies from the forest fires smoke, or so I thought. With anxiety and depression i was so achy during this time i thought i must be low on some vitamins and i am having surgery next month so i am thinking I'm low on something. I was going to try and work out but gosh, everything hurt no matter what i did but I didn't have a fever, didn't know what the heck was going on.
so i see my regular doc for a physical, she took chest X-rays as i have fallen twice in the last two years and really cracked my ribs...so achy muscles moving could be bruised muscles and Ive never been tested for Hep C so why is my one area really poofy and sore to the touch?
well, arriving home from the docs i got sick. Laid down and rested before going to the store. Got sick in the parking lot...went home and went to bed, dang, had to miss bible studies but i just hurt so much....what the heck???
ok, tests all come back normal, X-ray normal no hep c....
i have the flu and and ahead cold...that's it...
THE FLU!! How can I feel normal with just queasiness off and on? No fever no chills etc. i thought it was weird...then i took oregano oil last night as throat began to hurt with the allergies....stayed in bed today and oregano oil again...chicken soup and rest....
viola, pain is gone, queasiness is gone and the oregano oil is working how come I didn't think it was the flu? Its weird....
as i age my body Is doing some weird things and now i know if I get the flu, its not gonna be like I'm immobile for days and throwing up for days on end....its a GOOD THING but I worried for nothing really.
but I am working on trusting God for ALL my needs and this was a weird fluke that got me anxious..silly me. Focus on God and viola, He helps me thru everything!!
thanks for listening. Its hard to faithful isn't it? But thank God He is ALWAYS is faithful~ AMenQ
Sorry I read this post wrong. Deleted my response. Stay on focus with Christ as your Lord and let the HOly Spirit lead you into His Word. Was your wife brought up in church and perhaps she's had a bad experience? Perhaps counseling is needed for a tweaking of communications? Praying for you both, its hard to live with an unbeliever.
Had a great sermon on the parable of the sower. Wonderful just wonderful.
Then I went to see my Dad. He's asking the staff how long he has to stay there. Then he asked me where he was again and what city.
He tried to sleep but eyes would not close all the way......
Before I leftI told him I loved him and will bring some cheese popcorn on the next visit.
Then I put the a Scripture verse on the bulletin board from this mornings sermon.
God has it all in control.
10 Then the disciples came and said to him, "Why do you speak to them in parables?"
11 And he answered them, "To you it has been given to know the secrets of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given. He's talking about non believers here.
12 For to the one who has, more will be given, and he will have an abundance, but from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away.
13 This is why I speak to them in parables, because seeing they do not see, and hearing they do not hear, nor do they understand. He begins to talk about the non believers, the pretenders those who call or think they are "christians" but they do not hear/nor heed His Word.
14 Indeed, in their case the prophecy of Isaiah is fulfilled that says: "'"You will indeed hear but never understand, and you will indeed see but never perceive."
15 For this people's heart has grown dull, and with their ears they can barely hear, and their eyes they have closed, lest they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears and understand with their heart and turn, and I would heal them.'
16 But blessed are your eyes, for they see, and your ears, for they hear.
17 For truly, I say to you, many prophets and righteous people longed to see what you see, and did not see it, and to hear what you hear, and did not hear it.
18 "Hear then the parable of the sower:
19 When anyone hears the word of the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what has been sown in his heart. This is what was sown along the path.
20 As for what was sown on rocky ground, this is the one who hears the word and immediately receives it with joy, ( but its endurance and faith the believer has)
21 yet he has no root in himself, but endures for a while, and when tribulation or persecution arises on account of the word,
22 As for what was sown among thorns, this is the one who hears the word, but the cares of the world and the deceitfulness of riches choke the word, and it proves unfruitful.
23 As for what was sown on good soil, this is the one who hears the word and understands it. He indeed bears fruit and yields, in one case a hundredfold, in another sixty, and in another thirty." - Matthew 13:10-23
WOW! I finally got an updated and bigger iPad and I love this keyboard. Now I will be able to load all my stuff on here and quote things fast when I need too!
Its been a few years I almost forgot how to type!
Praying for the world with all the weather happening, all the fires and just the corruption of the people. Its so disturbing to see young CHILDREN viciously attacking younger children, I mean attacking!! Kung fu kicks to the chest of small girls by 9-12 yrs old boys, groups of teens filming and deciding who is going to be their next victim?????
These are the last days and I pray Jesus Comes SOON!
I'm taking www.villageoftheschoolsbible.org classes again for the fifth time. A friend and I were chatting that we are not taking as many notes as we did the first few times, that information is being retained and we are noting things more along the line of patterns, prophecies, people etc. Its very nice to be able to type!
Have to say good night as daughter is visiting to check out my iPad!!
Be content in all things.
I don't want to be like the Exodus generation who kept looking backwards to Egypt, I'm moving forward with God!
It's always an adjustment moving and dealing with elderly, those older than my age but what an opportunity to pray for all these people!
Helen is forgetful, she fell on a walk so I gave her an ice pack with a velcro strip to hold it on her wrist. She forgot I gave it to her 😊 she is sweet and repeats herself but she's happy and in good health.
Joyce, older, moves slowly with a walker and wants no help whatsoever. As long as she's moving, she's doing well! It may take a while but she's not in a hurry anyway! 😊
Larry the bully, that was very interesting. I didn't know who he was and hes a very loud and angry man, people like me need to know all the rules of the community n he can write me up. He was very threatening, I didn't have my phone with me and he blocked my dog cart so I couldn't move! Ok, so I said I was... . Oh, wait, he's not going to let me speak, he's only yelling louder and listening to himself. I walked away and the carnal me yelled out NAZIS! AS I WANT TO THE ELEVATOR...
Forgive me God, that man was a threat, if I had my phone I would have called 911. I take my phone with me everywhere now... My friends asked if he was mentally ill? I said I don't even know who he is but I will pray that God settles his angry persona....
His wife is on the " board" and although he wasn't at the meeting,, my attorney friend spoke on my behalf and I'm sure everyone got the message I will stand up to bullies no matter who they are. Respect and common sense is needed in a community, not legalistic nut jobs yelling at new condo owners.
I'm sad to say there's been allot of turnover in the 60 days I've been here because people have died or needed nursing home assistance. But a new influx of owners is a welcomed thing!
So, no complaints, I know the stress of a house and keeping the yard up were a big burden but one I didn't really acknowledge until I moved. It's hard to see the good when I'm just focused on the stressful Soo this move was a great choice!
I'm taking village of the schools Bible studies classes, fifth time on the OT and next spring the NT. In our first class I've learned something new about God already but He is infinite so I look forward to all I can learn!
I pray everyone here is doing well as August is winding down.
When I hear people say God has lied to me or he said this but not that, it's almost 100% error on the human understanding of God, His nature and His character. Please join a Bible study class and or get a Holman Christian study Bible. There are many things we cannot know of God this side of heaven but He's told us all we need to know to live a godly life for Him in the Bible. 😊
