A neighbor from my old neighborhood passed away.
I have not seen them in many years.
God be with him and all his family.

"Jesus was still speaking
when a man came from
the ruler's house with an announcement,
'Your daughter is dead;
do not bother the Teacher further.'
Jesus heard this, and his response was:
'Fear is useless;
what is needed is trust
and her life will be spared.'"
Luke 8:49-50

Do not fear.
Have faith.
Trust in Jesus.
Your life will be saved.

"While they were with Jesus they asked,
'Lord, are you going to restore
the rule to Israel now?'
His answer was:
'The exact time it is not yours to know.
The Father has reserved that to himself.
You will receive power when
the Holy Spirit comes down on you;
then you are to be my witnesses in Jerusalem,
throughout Judea and Samaria,
yes, even to the ends of the earth.'"

Though they failed to understand his words,
they were afraid to question him."

He will answer you.
He understands how you feel.

as to which of them was the greatest.
Jesus, who knew their thoughts,

and whoever welcomes me
welcomes him who sent me;
for the least among you is the greatest.'"

He who sows sparingly will reap sparingly,
and he who sows bountifully will reap bountifully.

"One night in a vision
the Lord said to Paul:
'Do not be afraid.

The CT scan of June 13
did not show anything unusual.

"After this I saw before me a huge crowd
which no one could count
from every nation and race, people and tongue.
They stood before the throne and the Lamb,
dressed in long white robes and
holding palm branches in their hands.
They cried out in a loud voice,
'Salvation is from our God,
who is seated on the throne,
and from the Lamb!'"
Revelation 7:9-10

Jesus is the Lamb of God.

but for those of the whole world."

"When the day of Pentecost came
it found them gathered in one place.
Suddenly from up in the sky
there came a noise
like a strong, driving wind which was heard
all through the house where they were seated.
Tongues as of fire appeared,
which parted and came to rest on each of them.
All were filled with the Holy Spirit."

comes from the Father."

God bless him and all those in his office.

"Just at that point,
some Jews from Antioch and Iconium arrived

They stoned Paul and dragged him out of the town,
leaving him there for dead.
His disciples quickly formed a circle about him,
and before long he got up and
went back to the town."

you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.'"

Lately I've been studying JavaScript .
JavaScripts are on just about every web page that you view
even at the top of this page where the "Go" button is.
I'm just studying the youtube.com videos
and then typing the text into Notepad++ HTML files
and then running the scripts in a browser.
It's easy and it's fun.

They asked Jesus,
"Is it lawful for us
to pay taxes to Caesar, or not?"
