TAKE TIME to be THANKFUL

~~      I was looking at my “TAKE TIME” sheet that my mom gave me many years ago, and I noticed there isn’t a TAKE TIME to be thankful, so this one IS mine!
     TAKE TIME to be THANKFUL -  it allows us to reflect on where we’ve been, where we are, and where we want to go. It helps us to be humble and helps with our peace. It allows us time to appreciate who we love AND who loves us!

~~Family, food and thanksgiving. A time where some people exchange gifts, but how many know that the BEST gift isn’t wrapped at all? Time together! How much is that worth? Just a thought.
I am happy to be able to offer my second children’s story, The Adventure of Bobby the Butterfly. The team of adifferentkindofstorybook.com, put our gifts together and produced a story that I believe you’re going to love. The book is directed at children up to age 12; however, the story message is pertinent up to age 18.

~~45 years ago, today, I boarded a train from Boston to Fort Dix, New Jersey. I was drafted prior to the draft being abolished. I had guys from Pennsylvania, New York, Maryland and other states from the Northeast in my barracks. I was chosen to be our squad leader. Needless to say, we weren’t very happy sitting in our new home.

Dedication - October 20, 2013

~~I have been blessed in SO many ways along my journey. As we all have, I’ve had my share of ups and downs. God has blessed me with this ministry and through it I have learned the value of “glancing” in the rear view mirror of life, but focusing and dreaming out ahead through the windshield of life.
 Perhaps the greatest blessing that He has ever given me is my mom. She NEVER turned her back on me. Her health had taken a turn and I had the privilege of being able to care for her. Ten, fifteen, twenty years ago, I was caught up in the grip of addiction, BUT GOD delivered me from my dark room and I am able, not only to be found, but able to take care of my mom when she needed me.

~~~~I am Blessed!!   October 17, 2017
 I have been watching a documentary about the Vietnam War for several weeks. I was drafted in 1972, but was discharged before I had to go the “The Nam”. I thank God, I didn’t have to go and my heart aches for the men, women and their love ones who paid the ultimate price, or who were wounded!
I was compelled to write this post! I don’t take my blessings for granted.
NEVER GIVE UP!
Love & Peace

~~Yesterday I had my one-year checkup at the VA to check on my condition concerning if the cancer had returned. I have had 3 checkups since the operation and had great news each time. Well, I got the call this morning and the results continue to be GREAT!! NO CANCER. I am truly grateful.
We still have much to do and I believe that we are going to get them done. My friend and web-guy, Alan Dix is working on some improvements to our web site, so STAY TUNED.
Thank you for your support.
NEVER GIVE UP!
Love & Peace
