God is love
Put your trust in Jesus

The time is now

Be born again

God is great

Love is all you need

So far that stock is up 3 percent.
His name is Nicholas.
I need to thank him.
I might have to take a little trip to New Jersey.
I have not been there since 1986.
I want to visit the
Yes, We Care Soup Kitchen in Scotch Plains, also.

Yesterday after work I went to the Westroads Mall.
I stopped at The Cookie Company and asked them
for the cookie that was their favorite.
She liked the ginger cookie.
It was very good, but I don't like ginger that well.
It cost $1.30.
There was not any tax on it.
Today I'm going to Sams Club in Omaha.
I will buy about 70 Grandma's Cookies
of different varieties for around $10.
15 cents per cookie and they are great.
The only problem is they don't have
the fudge chocolate chip cookie anymore.
I called Frito Lay to complain and they still
have not reversed the change after many months.
They don't listen to me.

Jesus taught,
"For everyone who exults himself shall be humbled
and he who humbles himself shall be exalted."
Luke 14:11

You are important.
You are significant in Christ.
We follow him.
He is the Lord.
We bow before him.
We give praise to him.

Yesterday someone was telling me about this stock.
They live in Scotch Plains, New Jersey.
Someone they know made a profit of $140M with it.

Last night I saw the Firefly supercomputer at UNO in Omaha.
It is 21.5 TFlops (whatever that is, teraflops?).
There was a .NET meeting I attended in the building.
It was cool to go back to college for an hour or two.
I met someone that works for the same company that I work for.
He lost his job yesterday.
Pray for him and his family.
I won a prize.
I'm not sure what I won.
It was a DVD with some software on it for .NET.
Telerik Premium Collection for .NET
The web site says that it costs $1299.00.
That can't be right.
They would not give away something that costs that much.
It must be a trial version of the software.

"The wall of the city had 12 courses
of stones as its foundation,
on which were written the names
of the 12 apostles of the Lamb."
Revelation 21:14

Your faith is built on the faith of others.
You are not alone.
Lean on your brothers and sisters in Christ.
It is a team effort.

(July 28, 2010 Wed 7:58 AM CDT)

Day two at work was much better.
There was little stress.
Thank the Lord.
One person quit that first day,
so pray for them.
Everyone was stressed out that day.

"To Archippus say,
'Take care to discharge the ministry
you have received in the Lord.'"
Colossians 4:17

I want you to hang in there.
Your mission is not easy.
Don't quit.
You are very important to God's plan.
The Lord is with you.
Things will get better.

(July 27, 2010 Tue 6:26 AM CDT)

Yesterday at work was very stressful at times.
You wonder how much stress you can take
before you have a heart attack.
But... it was interesting... it was a challenge...
It is a job.
I don't want to go back to being unemployed.

"In times past, God spoke in fragmentary
and varied ways to our fathers through the prophets;
in this, the final age,
he has spoken to us through his Son,
whom he has made heir of all things and
through whom he first created the universe."
Hebrews 1:1-2

Jesus came to earth.
He spoke to us.
He told us about life and death.
He created all things and holds us in existence.
Be thankful for the Bible.
You have been given gifts that are priceless.
Be grateful for all that the Lord has provided for us.

(July 26, 2010 Mon 6:32 AM CDT)

(I'm writing this on my Ubuntu/Linux machine.
I had to reinstall Ubuntu from scratch.
The updates to Ubuntu were failing.)

I have been getting up at 5 AM everyday lately.
I did not do that when I was unemployed.

"My purpose in leaving you in Crete
was that you might accomplish
what had been left undone,
especially the appointment
of presbyters in every town."
Titus 1:5

There is work to be done.
You have a mission.
There is a purpose for your life.
Look at those near you today.
What can you do to build their faith?
Be of service.
Accomplish great things.

(July 25, 2010 Sun 7:04 AM CDT)

I'm trying to activate Windows Vista
on my laptop computer and it is not working.
I called the Microsoft number and it hung up on me.
Not too customer friendly.

"The whole body, mutually supported
and upheld by joints and sinews,
achieves a growth from this source
which comes from God."
Colossians 2:19

We are the body of Christ.
Help your brothers and sisters.
Build up their faith.
Achieve great growth.

(July 24, 2010 Sat 9:50 AM CDT)

I graduated from training class yesterday at work.
There were times when I wondered
if I would make it this far.

"Let him who would boast,
boast in the Lord."
2 Corinthians 10:17

The Lord is awesome.
He is great.
Jesus is our Savior.
He is wonderful.
We give all our praise to him.

(July 22, 2010 Thu 7:11 AM CDT)

Pray for two people I know that were
injured in the last week at two different places.
God bless them and heal them quickly.

"Jesus explained to them:
'I myself am the bread of life.
No one who comes to me shall ever be hungry,
no one who believes in me shall ever thirst.'"
John 6:35

Come to Jesus.
He will feed your soul.
He will nourish your faith.
Your life begins now.

(July 21, 2010 Wed 7:22 AM CDT)

Yesterday after work I signed another stack of documents.
I said it looked like a book.
It would take several hours to read all of them.

"The man stood and picked up his mat
and went outside in the sight of everyone.
They were awestruck;
all gave praise to God saying,
'We have never seen anything like this!'"
Mark 2:12

Jesus is amazing.
There is no one like him.
He will change you.
He will heal your body and soul.

(July 20, 2010 Tue 7:37 AM CDT)

Yesterday I went home after work
and got some legal papers.
Then I went to a meeting.
I forgot the legal papers.
You better pray for me.
I won't forget the papers for today's meeting.

My neighbor's computer is not working
she told me last night.
It does nothing of any value now.
I told her she has a virus.
She has been fighting
computer problems for several days.
I suggest backing up your computer once a week
to an external hard drive and keep 4 weeks of backups.
Even with a virus checker you can still have issues.
I had problems with my PC also the last few weeks.
I restored my PC to the June 19 backup on Saturday.
Maybe my PC had the same virus.

"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

Have faith.
Trust in Jesus.
Ask him for help with your problems.
You will get better.

Here is some inspiration for you on Monday morning.
Don Schoendorfer makes wheelchairs and gives them away.
God bless him and his organization.

in letting us be called children of God!
Yet that is what we are."

You have a Father in heaven.
You are his child.
He cares about you.
Talk to him each day.
Father, we thank you for today.
Keep us close to you always.

(July 18, 2010 Sun 7:30 AM CDT)

Yesterday I restored my computer to June 19.
I have been having problems with it lately
so I went back in time.
It was blocking a sftp program from working
that I use for spring2life.com file transfers.

"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

Thank the Lord.
Thank him for your brothers and sisters in Christ.
Rejoice that you are in the family.
Be continually improving.
Promote the gospel.

(July 17, 2010 Sat 8:19 AM CDT)

"Seek eagerly after love.
Set your hearts on spiritual gifts ---
above all, the gift of prophecy."
1 Corinthians 14:1

Pray for prophecy.
Seek the spiritual gifts of the Lord.
We need to hear God's truth
told to us with love.
May your heart be consoled.

(July 16, 2010 Fri 6:37 AM CDT)

Here is a video of the total solar eclipse
as seen in El Calafate, Argentina on July 11, 2010.
Really cool!
The awesome beauty of God's creation for all to see.

I love this song by the Newsboys.
Born Again .

There was a rainbow about 9 PM on Wednesday evening in Omaha.
Many people saw it.
Some people saw double rainbows I read on some Facebook posts.
Around 7:30 PM a strong storm blew across the city.
Many people lost power.
There was damage around Valley, Nebraska
to the trees and telephone poles from the strong wind.
I had many branches down in my yard.
My neighbor helped cut them up for me yesterday.

Yesterday someone from work went to Bergan Hospital
because of an allergic reaction to something.
Pray for them to recover quickly.

to whom the apostles gave the name Barnabas
(meaning 'son of encouragement').
He sold a farm that he owned and
made a donation of the money,
laying it at the apostles' feet."
Acts 4:36-37

Be a person of encouragement.
Be positive.
God bless you today.
Give your time and money to brighten the world.

(July 13, 2010 Tue 8:20 AM CDT)

Then Jesus entered the temple
and began ejecting the traders saying:
"Scripture has it,
'My house is meant for a house of prayer'
but you have made it 'a den of thieves.'"
Luke 19:45-46

Respect God.
Give honor to him.
Set aside a special place to pray.
Make your home a house of prayer.

(July 12, 2010 Mon 7:36 AM CDT)

I heard the following Bible reading twice yesterday
at church at different services.
We also had a missionary visiting from
Cape Town, South Africa .
I heard his sermon twice.
He sang a song in the first service but not the second.
He said that one day someone asked Mother Teresa
if she was successful.
She said, "God did not call me to be successful;
he called me to be faithful."

"For this command that I enjoin on you today
is not too mysterious and remote for you.
It is not up in the sky, that you should say,
'Who will go up in the sky to get it for us
and tell us of it, that we may carry it out?'
Nor is it across the sea, that you should say,
'Who will cross the sea to get it for us
and tell us of it, that we may carry it out?'
No, it is something very near to you,
already in your mouths and in your hearts;
you have only to carry it out."
Deuteronomy 30:11-14

Go on a mission.
Complete your assigned task.
God might send you to another country
or down the street.
The Lord is counting on you.
Be faithful.

(July 11, 2010 Sun 6:46 AM CDT)

It's raining cats and dogs this morning.

I bought a new clothes washer yesterday.
My old washer lasted over 13 years (12-3-1996) .
It was almost as old as spring2life.com.
The pump was leaking.
The guy kept saying that they had free delivery,
but we had a truck and took it right home.
Oops... I just read the reviews for the machine.
Several people have had problems
with it after just a few months.
It does not sound like it is going to last 13 years.

Jesus said,
"To you the mystery of the reign of God
has been confided."
Mark 4:11

You have been told.
You know all about Jesus.
Don't keep it a secret.
Pass this information along to others.
Share the mystery.

(July 10, 2010 Sat 8:57 AM CDT)

My anti-virus software detected a possible problem this morning.
It said the FTP to my ISP was suspicious,
so I blocked it.
That has not happened before.
It must be a Facebook virus attack.

"The angel then showed me
the river of life-giving water,
clear as crystal,
which issued from the throne of God
and of the Lamb
and flowed down the middle of the streets."
Revelation 22:1-2

Are you thirsty?
Come to the flowing waters that give life.
Search for the Lord.
He will refresh you.

(July 9, 2010 Fri 6:52 AM CDT)

There are times at work when it is stressful.
There is a lot to learn and it takes time.

was that you might accomplish
what had been left undone..."

You have a job to do.
It will be difficult.

The Lord is with you.

Yesterday at work someone was talking about SEO
and I did not recognize the term.

"Eye has not seen, ear has not heard,
nor has it so much as dawned on man
what God has prepared for those who love him."

We will spend eternity with God.
It will be a place of joy.
God loves you very much.
Be prepared to be surprised.

Here is the theme (58 Across)
to the crossword puzzle June 24, 2010 .
That's Life

Someone showed me this video on July 3.
I did not know that non-dairy creamer
was so dangerous.

"I am the good shepherd.
I know my sheep
and my sheep know me
in the same way that the Father knows me

Get to know Jesus.
He gave his life for you.
Follow him.
He will lead you to eternal life.
That is life.

(July 4, 2010 Sun 7:59 AM CDT)

Happy rainy 4th of July!

This morning I'm backing up my computers
to store the information offsite.
I write the files to an extra hard drive.
I just use IDE cables to connect the hard drive
to the various computers.

I was reading an inspiring story in the newspaper a few days ago.
A company in Omaha helped out the Siena/Francis House.
God bless all the people at that company.

Last week I bought a micro cut shredder .
It was on sale.
Each day I grab some old papers and shred them up.
I just shredded up some papers from 2003 and 2004.
It is going to take a long time.

When I was a little kid
I dreamed of starting a car company.
The name of the car will be the Daltontron.

"'Teacher, which commandment of the law is the greatest?'
Jesus said to him:
'You shall love the Lord your God
with your whole heart,
with your whole soul,
and with all your mind.'"
Matthew 22:36-37

Give all that you are to the Lord.
Love him.
Think about him often.
Keep him near your heart.
Dream of joy that never ends.

(July 3, 2010 Sat 8:11 AM CDT)

I had 33 entries in my Yahoo email inbox this morning.
That has not happened before.
Most of it is Facebook related.

One of the people I work with
is/was a student at Dana College .
The school was closed a few days ago.
She said she will transfer to UNO in Omaha.
God bless all the teachers and students
as they search for another school.

"The 24 elders who were enthroned in God's presence
fell down to worship God and said:
'We praise you, the Lord God Almighty,
who is and who was.
You have assumed your great power,
you have begun your reign.'"
Revelation 11:16-17

Give praise to the Lord today.
Offer worship to him.
Bow before him.
He is almighty.
He is deserving of all our praise.
