I feel the love

I find it a little hard to express how I am feeling right now... There is a peace that surrounds me like a cloud, an euphoric sense that everything is copacetic in my world... First I must say I have a wife that knows me, reads me, supports me, and loves me, even when I seem to be a hammerhead (whatever that is)... I have three sons and one daughter that all love and honor and respect their parents, and all love and serve God... And all of them have married wonderful mates that complete them... and then our grandchildren... wow, one with her own sweet baby, (I think that makes Kathi's "ruggedly handsome gaga man" something called a great grandfather, but that's cool too)... And then my oldest grandson Jonathon, serving in the greatest army in the world, go U.S. Army... Add to that his sweet new wife Alyssa, a little new family... Back to the list of grand babies; there is Amy, such a sweetie, with a new little sibling on their way... and then my oldest son Andrew's little man Ethan, and his little sibling also on it's way... And then Aliyah, Tabitha's little 3 year old, who just saw her brother 5 hours after his birth by way of Nana's Ichat video deal on Mac computer... Looking good Brayden... Hey wait what is this liquid leaking down my face from the eye area, oh well, I am truly a blessed man... knowing that as for me and my house we will serve the Lord all the days of our life... Thank you Jesus for every precious moment you have given me, and You have turned all my mourning into joy... I have to go Aliyah wants Papa (that's me) to watch her in her soccer class at her daycare... peace, out, Karl

Peter wants to tell you something!

“I wonder what would happen if we all agreed to read one of the Gospels until we came to a place that told us to do something, then went out to do it, and only after we had done it, began reading again? There are aspects of the Gospel that are puzzling and difficult to understand. But our problems are not centered on the things we don’t understand, but rather in the things we do understand, the things we could not possibly misunderstand. Our problem is not so much that we don’t know what we should do. We know perfectly well, but we don’t want to do it.”

Came across this statement made by Dr. Peter Marshall who was a Scottish American preacher and twice served as Chaplain of the U.S Senate in the early 1900's. He is remembered most popularly from the biography A Man Called Peter, and the film made from it. Passed into heaven on January 26, 1949. When I read his quote I was convicted to my soul... See, we are all given the life, breath, and free will to follow and do the will of our heavenly Father... but we can get confused and pray for God to do what He wants us to do, and then try to do what God is suppose to do... I am reminding myself with this quote to get back doing what I am called to do, and believe God will do what He said He will, and how bout you?

In Him and never coming out, Karl

Want Better Living?

You have to plan on purpose to make your life better. You get better by determined decisions, not by default. You must design your life around positive, life promoting ideas and principles... Having a plan for your spiritual, emotional and financial growth is half the work of getting there. Often we don't strategize and develop a plan for growth, so we never get where God has design us to be.

Just as deliberate and focused you were about your decision for Christ, should be the same attitude you have for spending time in His word, having a budget for your finances and gathering round yourself emotionally healthy people.

Twenty 10 is already here, so where are you on purpose? Start right now... write out a plan that will work, and work that plan! You will look back to this day and say," Wow, life is great!"

In Him and never coming our, Karl
