God will help you
Look up to heaven

See the glory of God

All good gifts come from heaven above

Taste and see the goodness of the Lord

Be glad and rejoice

Last night I was watching the video of
Randy Pausch at Carnegie Mellon.
I watched the first 33 minutes of it.

"Trust in the Lord and do good,
that you may dwell in the land and enjoy security.
Take delight in the Lord,
and he will grant you your heart's requests."
Psalms 37:3-4

The Lord will provide for you.
He sees your heart.
He knows just what you need.
Trust in him.
He will show you what is important in this life.

You can recycle your old computer today at
Burke High School from 9 AM to 1 PM.
I have 3 to recycle and a printer and scanner.

Jesus taught,
"If you bring your gift to the altar
and there recall that your brother
has anything against you,
leave your gift at the altar,
go first to be reconciled with your brother,
and then come and offer your gift."
Matthew 5:23-24

Be reconciled.
Ask forgiveness.
Give forgiveness.
Someone ran a red light
in front of me the other morning.
I need to forgive them.
It is hard to do.

I did get Windows 98 Second Edition
loaded to the Virtual PC a few days ago.

I went to a class on retirement last night
at Millard North High School .
I have a lot to learn.
I don't understand Roth IRAs and lots of other things.
God bless all the students and teachers there today.
Their web site talks about
the International Day of Peace 9/21/2007.
They had pinwheels everywhere around the school that day.

"May God the Father and
the Lord Jesus Christ
grant the brothers peace
and love and faith.
Grace be with all
who love our Lord Jesus Christ
with unfailing love."
Ephesians 6:23-24

May there be peace in the world.
May there be peace in Iraq.
May there be peace in our lives.
We need your peace, Lord.
Help us.
Send your love to our troubled world, Lord.

"The way we can be sure of our knowledge of him
is to keep his commandments.
The man who claims,
'I have known him,'
without keeping his commandments,
is a liar;
in such a one there is no truth."
1 John 2:3-4

Learn the ways of the Lord.
Stay near him.
He knows what is best for you.
Follow Jesus all the way to heaven.

(September 26, 2007 Wed 6:28 AM CDT)

Someone that works on my floor
was in the newspaper on Monday .

Jesus said,
"The Son of Man has not come
to be served but to serve ---
to give his life in ransom for the many."
Mark 10:45

He is Lord of all creation.
He came to earth to serve.
What a wonderful example to set for us.
We should learn from Jesus.
Be of service.

(September 25, 2007 Tue 6:16 AM CDT)

"At that moment Jesus rejoiced
in the Holy Spirit and said:
'I offer you praise, O Father,
Lord of heaven and earth,
because what you have hidden
from the learned and the clever
you have revealed to the merest children.'"
Luke 10:21

It is not that complicated.
God loves you.
He loves you very much.
Will you respond to his love?

(September 24, 2007 Mon 6:20 AM CDT)

"What of it?
All that matters is that
in any and every way,
whether from specious motives or genuine ones,
Christ is being proclaimed!
That is what brings me joy.
Philippians 1:18

Yes, indeed ---
talk about Christ.
Share the good news.
It is very depressing to read and listen to the news.
People need some good news today.
He is our only hope.

(September 23, 2007 Sun 8:21 AM CDT)

I have Vista working with Microsoft Virtual PC now.
It has sound and connects to the Internet.
Virtual PC creates a file
that is about 9GB with all the Vista updates and
AVG Anti-Virus software installed.
You can copy the virtual machine very easily
and back it up to another hard drive.

"Herod the tetrarch was very curious to see Jesus."
Luke 9:9

Are you curious?
Who is this person that has cured the sick
and raised the dead?
He is Jesus.
Come and learn all about him.

(September 22, 2007 Sat 8:42 AM CDT)

Lately I've been studying
Microsoft Virtual PC 2007 .
I have it running Vista on my refurbished HP-dc5000s computer.
I'm fighting the connection to the Internet.
It does not work and I had it working before.
I think the Norton Anti-Virus is blocking it.
I will uninstall it and see.
I added a half a Gig of memory to speed it up.
Vista on the Virtual PC was very slow.
I bought a copy of Windows 98 Second Edition yesterday on
I will try to load that to Virtual PC in a few days.

"He will lead them to springs of life-giving water,
and God will wipe every tear from their eyes."
Revelation 7:17

Find the springs of life.
It is water for your soul.
It is a gift from God to you.
The Lord will comfort you.
Come and see.

(September 21, 2007 Fri 6:51 AM CDT)

"It is important
that we continue on our course,
no matter what stage we have reached."
Philippians 3:16

It is a struggle.
Stay focused.
Stay close to the Lord.
Set your goals in life high.

(September 20, 2007 Thu 6:19 AM CDT)

"God has revealed this wisdom to us
through the Spirit."
1 Corinthians 2:10

Go to the Holy Spirit.
Ask for this wisdom from above.
It is there for your use.
God has given it to you.

(September 19, 2007 Wed 6:27 AM CDT)

Jesus said,
"I am the true vine and
my Father is the vinegrower."
John 15:1

You want to stay connected.
Jesus is the source of life.
Just look around you at all that he has made.
You want to grow with him.

(September 18, 2007 Tue 6:16 AM CDT)

I loaded Linux Red Hat 8.0
on the VMware computer last night.
I'm still trying to figure out Windows 98
and how to load it.

"They returned to Capernaum and Jesus,
once inside the house,
began to ask them,
'What were you discussing on the way home?'
At this they fell silent,
for on the way they had been arguing about
who was the most important."
Mark 9:33-34

Stop yourself today from time to time and
listen to what you just said.
Are you that important?
Do you respect others?
Are your words building you up?
Do you give compliments?
Stop and listen to yourself.

(September 17, 2007 Mon 6:21 AM CDT)

Yesterday I saw Neale Woods for the first time.
It is north and east of Omaha
on some dusty gravel roads.
They have some telescopes there to see the sky.

"Jesus said to them,
'Is a lamp acquired to be put
under a bushel basket or
hidden under a bed?
Is it not meant to be put on a stand?
Things are hidden only
to be revealed at a later time;
they are covered so as to be
brought out into the open.
Let him who has ears
to hear me, hear!'"
Mark 4:21-23

Listen to the Lord.
Read what Jesus has said.
Study the Bible.
Open your ears.
It will change your life.

(September 16, 2007 Sun 8:35 AM CDT)

The Universe TV program on the History Channel
is starting over again on Tuesday at 8 PM CDT.
You can see all 14 episodes.

I have the VMware installed and
running Vista and Windows XP on my HP dc5000s PC.
I need a faster computer.
I need a quad-core computer.
I loaded the free AVG Anti_Virus software on it now
in the Windows XP Virtual Machine.
AVG is very slow at
checking the whole computer for viruses.
Next I need to load Windows 95 and Windows 98.
Then I can get rid of this huge Windows 98
computer I keep around the house for some strange reason.
Just in case I need to run an old old program I guess.

"For this I work and struggle,
impelled by that energy of his
which is so powerful
a force within me."
Colossians 1:29

Some ask what is your "carbon footprint" ?
I ask: what is your God footprint?
Your energy needs should come from the Lord.
He has all the power you need and more.

(September 15, 2007 Sat 7:22 AM CDT)

Yesterday I purchased VMware Workstation 6 .
It took forever to download it.
Their web site was not working most of the day.
I got a virtual version of Windows XP Professional
running on a HP dc5000s computer.
Very interesting.
I will try to load a few more
operating systems on it today.
Maybe even Windows 98 or Windows 95.

Jesus said,
"The Father loves me for this:
that I lay down my life
to take it up again.
No one takes it from me;
I lay it down freely.
I have the power to lay it down,
and I have the power to take it up again."
John 10:17-18

Jesus died for you and me.
He did this because he loves you.
It is hard to understand.
It is an amazing love.
Dwell on this great love.
Thank you, Lord, for loving us.

(September 14, 2007 Fri 6:35 AM CDT)

I loaded PC-cillin on my
refurbished "sparky" computer on Wednesday.
It is a virus checker.
I have never used that product before.
I bought it on of course.

Lately I've been reading about
VMware Workstation 6 .
It involves running multiple operating systems
on one PC at the same time.
I will check it out today.

"Jesus then said in reply,
'Woman, you have great faith!
Your wish will come to pass.'
That very moment her daughter got better."
Matthew 15:28

Pray for your family.
Ask Jesus to heal them.
Pray for your children.
The Lord will make them better.

(September 13, 2007 Thu 6:14 AM CDT)

"Persevere in God's love,
and welcome the mercy
of our Lord Jesus Christ
which leads to life eternal.
Correct those who are confused;
the others you must rescue,
snatching them from the fire."
Jude 1:21-22

Continue in the love of God.
There is a right way to live.
Point people who are lost to the Lord.
He will lead them to life that never ends.

(September 12, 2007 Wed 6:26 AM CDT)

"I give thanks to my God
every time I think of you ---
which is constantly,
in every prayer I utter ---
rejoicing, as I plead on your behalf,
at the way you have all continually helped promote
the gospel from the very first day."
Philippians 1:3-5

We are not alone.
We have many brothers and sisters to help us.
We are the body of Christ.
We rejoice in Christ together.

(September 11, 2007 Tue 6:13 AM CDT)

I went to the public library downtown yesterday
and looked at the newspaper from 12/31/2006 on microfilm.
I was missing the very first number in square (1,1)
for the Sudoku puzzle that day.
It was number 2.

"Jesus summoned the crowd with his disciples
and said to them:
'If a man wishes to come after me,
he must deny his very self,
take up his cross,
and follow in my steps.'"
Mark 8:34

Follow Jesus.
It will not be easy.
There will be struggles along the way,
but Jesus is there to lead you.
Find what you are missing.

(September 10, 2007 Mon 6:36 AM CDT)

100% chance of rain in Omaha it says.
Here it comes.

I went to Shadow Lake yesterday in Papillion, Nebraska.
It looks like something you would see in the Denver area.
A very nice place.

"You who dwell in the shelter of the Most High
who abide in the shadow of the Almighty,
say to the Lord,
'My refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.'"
Psalms 91:1-2

Stay near the Lord.
See his shadow.
He is your fortress of strength.
Trust in him alone.

(September 9, 2007 Sun 6:43 AM CDT)

Somehow I'm getting multiple Sudoku puzzles for 12/31/2006.
I will have to go to the public library downtown
and look at the starting numbers for 12/31/2006 in the newspaper.
I must be missing a number.
You can read more on my Sudoku Page .
I need to add a counter for the keys.
I manually count the keys in puzzles,
but why do that when the computer can easily do it?
(Update at 8:21 PM: This is done.)

I got the sparking computer fixed at DIT Computers.
For the price I paid I could have bought another one on
Not too smart.

"Let no more than two or three prophets speak,
and then let the rest judge
the worth of what they say."
1 Corinthians 14:29

Let the prophets speak in 2007.
Judge what they say.
Take what is good.
Act on these words from God for today.

(September 8, 2007 Sat 10:42 AM CDT)

"In the midst of their amazement
at all that he was doing,
Jesus said to his disciples:
'Pay close attention to what I tell you:
The Son of Man must be delivered
into the hands of men.'
They failed, however, to understand this warning;
its meaning was so concealed from them
they did not grasp it at all,
and they were afraid
to question him about the matter."
Luke 9:43-45

God does not think like us.
We don't always understand.
He knows the future.
He knows what is best for us.
We have to trust him.

(September 7, 2007 Fri 6:24 AM CDT)

Pray for someone in California
that just found out they have cancer.
Jesus, be with them and their family.

"Jesus then began to tell the people
the following parable:
'A man planted a vineyard,
leased it to tenant farmers,
and went away for a long time.'"
Luke 20:9

Jesus taught the people.
He told them parables.
The stories give insight
into the mind of God.
Learn about the Lord.
Think about what he has said.
Act on this teaching.

(September 6, 2007 Thu 6:16 AM CDT)

"For our God is a consuming fire."
Hebrews 12:29

He wants all of you.
He wants your heart and soul.
Give your life to Jesus.
He is all that you need.

"To all in Rome,
beloved of God and called to holiness,
grace and peace from God our Father
and the Lord Jesus Christ."
Romans 1:7

I told my Mom yesterday
to pray for peace in Iraq.
I wrote the intention down for her.
600 or 700 people each month are killed.
One person dying is too much.
It is very sad.
Pray for peace.
Jesus, please send your peace and love
to this troubled country.

(September 4, 2007 Tue 6:17 AM CDT)

Jesus said,
"I solemnly assure you,
if a man is true to my word
he shall never see death."
John 8:51

Do not fear death.
Jesus has overcome death.
He is true to his word.
He is life that never ends.
Believe in him.

"They ate until they were full.
When they gathered up the fragments left over,
these filled 7 hampers.
The people who were fed numbered 4,000,
apart from women and children."
Matthew 15:37-38

That is quite a crowd to feed.
It would have been something to see.
Today Jesus continues to feed the crowd.
Go to him when you are hungry.
You can eat until you are full.

(September 2, 2007 Sun 8:05 AM CDT)

"The Lord is my light and my salvation;
whom should I fear?
The Lord is my life's refuge
of whom should I be afraid?"

There is nothing to fear.
The Lord is on your side.
Go to him with your problems.
He is a refuge from this world.

be with your spirit."

I pray for the grace of the Lord to touch you.
May it renew your spirit.
May it bring joy to your heart.
