The Lord is great
Bless the Lord

Thank the Lord

He is the Holy One

Go to him with your needs

Sing a new song to the Lord

"I find myself thinking of your sincere faith ---
faith which first belonged to your grandmother Lois
and to your mother Eunice,
and which (I am confident) you also have."
2 Timothy 1:4-5

Pass on your faith to your children
and your grandchildren.
Share the love of God with them.
Be confident in knowing the Lord.
Be sincere.

"You are forewarned, beloved brothers and sisters.
Be on your guard lest you be led astray
by the error of the wicked,
and forfeit the security you enjoy.
Grow rather in grace, and in the knowledge
of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Glory be to him now
and to the day of eternity!
2 Peter 3:17-18

There are warnings in the Bible.
Do you pay attention to them?
Do you listen to them and take action?
Stay away from evil.
Seek the grace of the Lord.
Go for the glory on the day of eternity.

"You are the Messiah," Simon Peter answered,
"the Son of the living God!"
Jesus replied, "Blest are you,
Simon, son of Jonah!
No mere man has revealed this to you,
but my heavenly Father.
I for my part declare to you,
you are 'Rock,'
and on this rock I will build my church,
and the jaws of death
shall not prevail against it.
I will entrust to you
the keys of the kingdom of heaven.
Whatever you declare bound on earth
shall be bound in heaven;
whatever you declare loosed on earth
shall be loosed in heaven."
Matthew 16:16-19

Peter was inspired by God.
He saw that Jesus was the Messiah.
Jesus was the one they had waited for.
Pray for the inspiration of God.
May you see who Jesus is clearly.

They opened the
West Dodge Road Expressway westbound yesterday,
so I drove on it at about 9 PM last night.
It is nice.
It is 3 lanes wide with a shoulder on the right.
You are up in the air and can't see anything.
You don't know where you are,
since you are above the landmarks.

"The word of the Lord
has echoed forth from you resoundingly."
1 Thessalonians 1:8

Is that your life?
Do you reflect the love of God?
Is there joy in your heart and soul?
Let your life sing.

Here is the answer for the Sudoku puzzle yesterday.

"So let us confidently approach the throne of grace
to receive mercy and favor and
to find help in time of need."
Hebrews 4:16

Where do you go for help?
Do you do a Google search?
I suggest asking the Lord.
He is there and ready to help you always.
Just say a prayer.
He is the answer.

Last night I was the carrot man at SFH .
I put the carrots on the tray for dinner.
They were good.
God bless all the people that were there.

Yesterday in the mail I got a brochure for
The Sharper Image .
They have a Sudoku puzzle on page 26.
So I was wondering if this was a valid puzzle
and it was.
Then I put it into the new C# program I wrote.
It is a very easy puzzle,
because my program solved it
as soon as I typed in the numbers.
Here is the puzzle:


(July 25, 2006 Tue 6:14 AM CDT)

Yesterday I was looking at the
Wayback Machine for spring2life.com.
It has not changed that much in 10 years.
You can go back in time and see web sites from years ago.

This is from our Bible Study readings for this time.

"There was one man who had been sick for 38 years.
Jesus, who knew he had been sick a long time,
said when he saw him lying there,
'Do you want to be healed?'"
John 5:5-6

That is a long time to wait.
Why didn't someone help him?
Didn't anyone care about him all those years?
There was a problem in their community.
Is that true of our communities today?
Do we care for others who are in need?

(July 24, 2006 Mon 6:11 AM CDT)

Yesterday I bought an Edwards pie
from the grocery store
at 19th and Vinton Streets in Omaha.
When the pie was gone this was written
on the pie tin.

"Whether therefore ye eat or drink
or whatever you do
do all to the glory of God."
1 Corinthians 10:31

That is a good test.
Can you say that what you are doing
is for the glory of God?
Would the Lord be pleased with your actions?
May your life give glory to God.

(July 23, 2006 Sun 8:03 AM CDT)

This is from a sermon (07/10/06) from TC
that I listened to yesterday.

"Rather, become holy yourselves
in every aspect of your conduct,
after the likeness
of the holy one who called you;
remember, Scripture says,
'Be holy, for I am holy.'"
1 Peter 1:15-16

"Be holy, for I, the Lord,
your God, am holy."
Leviticus 19:2

Do what is right and pleasing to God.
Do what the Lord asks you to do.
If you do what the Lord asks of you,
you don't have time for the evil things.
There will be peace in your soul.

(July 22, 2006 Sat 8:50 AM CDT)

Jesus said,
"Are not 5 sparrows sold for a few pennies?
Yet not one of them is neglected by God."
Luke 12:6

God watches over the birds of the air.
You are worth much more than a bird.
You are a child of God.
He is very concerned about you and
wants the best for you.
Set a goal today to learn more
about God who made you.
He loves you very much.

(July 21, 2006 Fri 8:02 AM CDT)

I got a birdie last night in golf at Fox Run on number 17.
It is 109 yards long par 3.
I hit on the green and putted it in.
God bless all the golfers and their families.

"Our help is in the name of the Lord,
who made heaven and earth."
Psalms 124:8

Where do you go for help?
Do you try to do it yourself?
Do you turn to the Lord and his power?
Call on the Lord.
He made the universe.
I'm sure he can help you.

(July 20, 2006 Thu 6:10 AM CDT)

"The grace of God has appeared,
offering salvation to all people."
Titus 2:11

We are never the same again.

we have been praying for you unceasingly
and asking that you may attain
full knowledge of his will
through perfect wisdom and spiritual insight."

May you grow near to him.
May the Lord give you wisdom and insights.

"Since you have set your hearts on spiritual gifts,
try to be rich in those that
build up the church."

We pray for peace in the world
with the many troubled places.
We pray for peace in Omaha
with the gang violence lately.

Paul said to King Agrippa:
"But I have had God's help to this very day,
and so I stand here to testify
to great and small alike.
Nothing that I say differs from
what the prophets and Moses foretold:
namely, that the Messiah must suffer, and that,
as the first to rise from the dead,
he will proclaim light to our people
and to the Gentiles."
Acts 26:22-23

Jesus is the light of the world.
He came into the darkness.
He brought us the truth.
He rose from the dead.
The prophets said he would come
to save his people.

"After that,
Moses and Aaron went to Pharaoh and said,
'Thus says the Lord, the God of Israel:
Let my people go,
that they may celebrate a feast
to me in the desert.'"
Exodus 5:1

The Lord will set you free.
You will travel to new places.
The Lord will speak to you.
It will be a time of celebration.

(July 15, 2006 Sat 10:21 AM CDT)

"I have been crucified with Christ,
and the life I live now
is not my own;
Christ is living in me.
I still live my human life,
but it is a life of faith
in the Son of God,
who loved me
and gave himself for me.
I will not treat
God's gracious gift as pointless."
Galatians 2:19-21

You have been given this precious gift of life.
What will you do with it?
Will you live for Christ?
Don't live a pointless life.

(July 14, 2006 Fri 6:13 AM CDT)

This is from our Bible Study last night.

"There are in the end 3 things that last:
faith, hope and love,
and the greatest of these is love."
1 Corinthians 13:13

Hold on to things that last.
You want things that endure.
God is love.

"For even if we, or an angel from heaven,
should preach to you
a gospel not in accord
with the one we delivered to you,

Jesus is the way and the truth and the life.
Believe in his words of life.
He will lead you to heaven.

Thank the Lord.

Peter said to Simon:
"May you and your money rot ---
thinking that God's gift can be bought!"
Acts 8:20

You can't buy gifts from God.
The gifts are given to you for free.
You just ask the Lord in faith.
He will hear your prayer and respond.
Jesus, send your gifts to me.
I need you in my life.

(July 10, 2006 Mon 6:13 AM CDT)

We had a family reunion on July 8 in
Johnstown, Colorado .
God bless all the people there.
We stayed in Loveland, Colorado on Hwy 34.
It is a nice town.
It was raining off and on for two days.
They need the rain just like we need rain in Omaha.

Jesus said,
"For everyone who exalts himself shall be humbled
and he who humbles himself shall be exalted."

and rest a little.'"

Work with the Lord.
He gives you the inspiration to carry on.
Give the glory to God.

Last night I served the French fries at SFH for dinner.
There was only about half the people
that usually come to eat.
God bless everyone there.

"My little ones,
I am writing this to keep you from sin.
But if anyone should sin,
we have, in the presence of the Father,

He is an offering for our sins,

but for those of the whole world."
