Not Untill Your Time

God's Plan
Christian life is a blessing-- not provision!
As long as God's Plan calls for you to remain
here, He will keep you alive, Regardless of
your spiritual status, He has promised to supply
your needs.

Philippians 4:19

(God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus)

Have Thine own way, Lord
Have Thine own way!
Thou art the Potter, I am the clay;
Mold me and make me after Thy will,
While I am waiting, yielded and still.
By Pollard/Stebbins

Need To Do This Need To Do That

BUT
The ironing can just wait,
The Quilt pieces will keep,
I'll write dust me on the dresser.
And sit or lay down and read.


I love this book, I don't want it to end.
I want it to end happy, it is part fiction 
and part true. It is basted on Nancy Turner's
great-grandmothers history of getting  to Arizona
and life on the ranch.
A must read first  is in the back  of the book 
"GOOD TO SET THE RECORD STRAIGHT"
So you will know the fiction, I didn't care , her
fictional husband was so much like some one I
know it was real to me.

Good Reports

The Bennie has had it for 2 days with Doctor's


Both gave him with little stress, you or good to go.

Why or Dermatologist and the medication they
prescribe so very high???
$90.00 for a little tube of cream.
And if I didn't have dental insurance we could go broke.

Then I went to the Dentist  
It was painful for him in his pocket book
but the hours he had to wait in that cold
waiting room was all most to much.
It was 3 hours for a first visit to get a
crown.
 Got to go back in 2 weeks.

Cuckoo Clock

 Anna is 92 years young, this clock came to American
from Germany with her grandparents, you can guess how many
years ago that was. 
There were some pieces that had come off,
the Bennie said it was from dry glue where someone
 had glued it long years ago.
He cleaned it and put them back in place. Ann was 
thrilled, she thinks he is wonderful any way.

I know It's True

I love to tell the story
Of unseen things above,
Of Jesus and His glory,
Of Jesus and His love.
Because I know 'tis true,
It satisfies my longings
As nothing else can do.

So Much More

I have read Colin L. Powell's book, never would I have 
guessed I would meet Captain Tucker that I had read about.
 He has been  talked  about in many books.

Two books, "Beyond Combat" by James Hutchens and 
"The Hump" by Al Conetto   tell of Captain Tucker leading
his unit, Charlie Company of the 1st Battalion, 503
 Airborne Infantry, against a superior enemy force, in the
first major battle of the Vietnam war on November 1965.

The exploits of his Rifle Company were recorded in song in 2006By




Big and Rich and that song "The 8th of November"
was nominated for Country Music's Song of the Year
and Documentary of the Year for 2006.

His awards and decoration include the Silver Star, three
Bronze Stars, The Legion of Merit, The  Meritorious 
Service Medal and four Vietnamese cross of  Gallantry.

On Sunday, June 23, 2013, He conducted a large memorial service
at Arlington National Cemetery at  Arlington, Virginia, for thirteen
airborne soldiers of the 173rd Airborne Brigade.

He has many Titles 
Champion, Hero, Mr, Adviser, Executive Officer  and Captain,
Reverend.

Until his retirement in April 2002 he served as Minister of 
Pastoral Care at Bellevue Baptist Church in Memphis TN
for seventeen years.

Out of kindness he comes every Tuesday to 
teach Bible Class to us.
