Happy New Year 2014

 

I received an email with the message below and thought I’d share it. I feel like I can relate to this in some ways for I’m at the midway point of my years at the young age of 51.

And Then it’s Winter!

You know, time has a way of moving quickly and catching you unaware of the passing years. It seems just yesterday that I was young, just married and embarking on my new life with my mate. And yet in a way, it seems like eons ago, and I wonder where all the years went. I know that I lived them all. And I have glimpses of how it was back then and of all my hopes and dreams. But, here it is, the winter of my life–and it catches me by surprise.

How did I get here so fast?

Where did the years go and where did my babies go?

And where did my youth go?

I remember well seeing older people through the years and thinking that those older people were years away from me and that winter was so far off that I could not fathom it or imagine fully what it would be like. But, here it is, my friends are retired and really getting gray, they move slower and I see an older person now. Lots are in better shape than me, but, I see the great change. Not like the ones that I remember who were young and vibrant, but, like me, their age is beginning to show and we are now those older folks that we used to see and never thought we’d be. Each day now, I find that just getting a shower is a real target for the day! And taking a nap is not a treat anymore, it’s mandatory–cause if I don’t on my own free will, I just fall asleep where I sit!

And so, now I enter into this new season of my life, totally unprepared for all the aches and pains, and the loss of strength and ability to go and do things that I wish I had done but never did!! But, at least I know, that though the winter has come, and I’m not sure how long it will last, this I know, that when it’s over, its over.

Yes, I have regrets. There are things I wish I hadn’t done, things I should have done, but indeed, there are many things I’m happy to have done. It’s all in a lifetime….

So, if you’re not in your winter yet, let me remind you that it will be here faster than you think. So, whatever you would like to accomplish in your life please do it quickly! Don’t put things off too long! Life goes by quickly. So do what you can today, as you can never be sure whether this is your winter or not! You have no promise that you will see all the seasons of your life, so live for good today and say all the things that you want your loved ones to remember and hope that they appreciate and love you for all the things that you have done for them in all the years past!!

“Life is a gift to you from God. The way you live your life is your gift to those who come after. Make it a fantastic one.

” LIVE IT WELL! ENJOY TODAY! DO SOMETHING FUN! BE HAPPY! BE THANKFUL! And Praise God For all He’s given you!

Recipe for a Happy New Year – Author Unknown

Take 12 whole months,
Clean them thoroughly of all bitterness, hate and jealousy,
Make them just as fresh and clean as possible.

Now cut each month into 28, 30 or 31 different parts,
But don’t make up the whole batch at once.
Prepare it one day at a time out of these ingredients.

Mix well into each day one part of faith,
One part of patience, one part of courage,
And one part of work.

Add to each day one part of hope,
Faithfulness, generosity and kindness.
Blend with one part prayer,

One part meditation, and one good deed.
Season the whole with a dash of good spirits,
A sprinkle of fun, a pinch of play,
And a cupful of good humor.

Pour all of this into a vessel of love.
Cook thoroughly over radiant joy,
Garnish with a smile,
And serve with quietness, unselfishness,
And cheerfulness.

You’re bound to have a happy new year.


Being happy doesn’t mean that
Everything is perfect.
It means that you have decided
To look beyond the imperfections.

Hope you have a Happy New Year!!!

Sept 25, 2012: Voice of Elijah?
via Pastor Paul Begley on Facebook … I loaded this one in Audacity and increased the volume on the weak parts so that you could hear the strange whispers clearly. It’s right near the start and replayed about thirty seconds later again. BTW, waveform analyses indicates the voice was not inserted into the video – it was the original audio. Could this be the voice of Elijah who was taken to heaven in a pillar of fire? Could he be here as the two witnesses are prophesied to return in the end days? Could he be here now, among the people?

11\28\14 I found out what these were.  The Chinese government will not let the people invest their money in anything that is not Chinese, so many people are investing in these new cities with their extra money they have earned.
