Twenty-Third Sunday After Pentecost… 10/23/2016 (REVISED)


Almighty and everlasting God, increase in us the gifts of faith, hope, and charity; and, that we may obtain what you promise, make us love what you command; through Your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.


I am writing this right now with my sunglasses on… I apologize for any typos and misuse of grammar I might enter…. I am writing this with my sunglasses on because the shade feels AWESOME on my stupid eye.  You see, I was helping my Mom garden on Sunday and a flower bud poked me in the eyeball while I was trimming a bush.  To make matters worse, my allergies kicked in… O WELL… SUNGLASSES ROCK!


I want to share with you a message… GOD LOVES YOU!  This world might give you struggles; however, that is what makes life FUN…


Let me tell you about yesterday, I came across these two scriptures… May I share them???

1 Corinthians 1:18

(Written by our brother Paul in the New Testament of our Holy Bible)

Christ the Power and Wisdom of God

18 For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.


Psalm 23:4

(Verse used by David when He defeated Goliath)

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil;
For You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.

AWESOME HUH??? When things seem dark shine that bright light of Christ!!!

It was cool… I went to a bible study at my church yesterday and noticed a common theme in the readings and Holy Gospel that will be taught on Sunday.


Also, our hymnal recommends teaching other verses on different years under the same subject… A reading that popped out at me is written in the Old Testament in our Holy Bible… It reads…

Leviticus 19:1-2 The Message (MSG)

“I Am God, Your God”

19 1-2 God spoke to Moses: “Speak to the congregation of Israel. Tell them, Be holy because I, God, your God, am holy:

15 “Don’t pervert justice. Don’t show favoritism to either the poor or the great. Judge on the basis of what is right.

16 “Don’t spread gossip and rumors.

“Don’t just stand by when your neighbor’s life is in danger. I am God.

17 “Don’t secretly hate your neighbor. If you have something against him, get it out into the open; otherwise you are an accomplice in his guilt.

18 “Don’t seek revenge or carry a grudge against any of your people.

“Love your neighbor as yourself. I am God.

Moses was a cool messenger of God…

Please share the News of God’s love through spreading the ministry of His Son and our Lord Jesus Christ… May your days be blessed and you live a long joyous life!


AND please check this post as I will be adding scriptures and daily testimonials throughout the week.


(PSALM 100)


10/19/2016 – you know… today was interesting… had some friends cancel plans with me… IT’S ALL GOOD… I am gonna keep going even with a bum eye. 🙂



I want to share with you a way that our Lord Jesus Christ taught us to pray…

Matthew 6:9-13

Pray then like this:

“Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name.
10 Your kingdom come,
your will be done,
    on earth as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread,
12 and forgive us our debts,
    as we also have forgiven our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation,
    but deliver us from evil.


For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen


(PSALM 103)

On a personal note, I can not wait until I VOLUNTEER TO PLANT SOME SAPLINGS (young trees) on Saturday…

Now, I am gonna read that book I got for my course in

Successful Negotiation: Essential Strategies and Skills…

Do WE know what PROVERBS 3:1-5 SAYS???


10/22/2016 – It was windy… however, the Swatara Creek’s Floodplain has been altered…



I learned something pretty cool on Friday, when reading about successful negotiations, and I would like to try to explain to you my thoughts…

I believe that I am negotiating with you to receive eternal life and to accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior… I learned, that after determining whether or not a negotiation is position based or interest based, it is important to follow some ethical standards… For instance… what would a person, you look up to, do in that situation???

Right away… I have the urgency to share with you the Holy Gospel (Good News)… Matthew is the first book written in the New Testament of our Holy Bible… the 22nd chapter reads…

 Matthew 22:34-46

The Scribes: Which Is the First Commandment of All?

34 But when the Pharisees heard that He had silenced the Sadducees, they gathered together. 35 Then one of them, a lawyer, asked Him a question, testing Him, and saying, 36 “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?”

37 Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.”


Jesus: How Can David Call His Descendant Lord?

41 While the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them,42 saying, “What do you think about the Christ? Whose Son is He?”

They said to Him, “The Son of David.”

43 He said to them, “How then does David in the Spirit call Him ‘Lord,’ saying:

44 ‘The Lord said to my Lord,
“Sit at My right hand,
Till I make Your enemies Your footstool”’?

45 If David then calls Him ‘Lord,’ how is He his Son?” 46 And no one was able to answer Him a word, nor from that day on did anyone dare question Him anymore.


Do you also know David wrote most of the PSALMS???


(PSALM 91)

I never thought that I would love life as much as I do now!!! I CAN'T WAIT TO HAVE MORE "NEVER THOUGHT" REVELATIONS.
