Just A Little Note About My Life - Correction

The Bald Man And His Rottweiler

Apology 

Today I want to make a correction on something I had written in this article in 2014.  

The article below  was an experience I had with a threatening vicious dog which I believed to be a pit bull, Then I thought it was a boxer.  The dog that lunged at me with his teeth showing while I walking at a nearby park was a rottweiler.   I can say this with no doubt.

 I became aware of the mistakes I made concerning what kind of dog it was, after our new neighbors moved in.  They own a rottweiler named Maggie.  When I was told she was a rottweiler I realized I made a mistake in this short article. 

I apologize  for the mistakes .... I really don't know too much about dogs, but I know that the dog that lunged at me had been complained about before by other people.  This story I wrote is true, I just could not identify what kind of dog it was.


The Bald Man And His Rottweiler

Recently while walking at a nearby  park I was scared nearly to death by a rottweiler lunging at me.  The dog looked like he wanted to tear me to pieces.  It's a good thing He was on a leash.  Then another day I went walking, the same dog lunged at me, so I backed away and walked calmly away, but I was worried.  Then a third time there was an older woman there walking her smaller dog.  Then I recognized the man walking the same rottweiler.  The rottweiler was reactionary  and the woman's smaller dog wasn't happy either.  

I said to the woman," I'm walking with you", 
I thought," If I'm going to get bit I choose the smaller dog."  I apologized to the lady and told her I was frightened by the rottweiler because it had lunged at me two other times.  

Then just a couple days ago I was working on the path and  I could see from a distance the same man with the same dog.  Something else was happening.  A little old lady was all hunched over and her two little dogs were out to get to that rottweiler.  The little old lady was telling her dogs no,  but they wouldn't listen.  The little dogs managed to pull so hard on their leashes that the little old woman fell onto the ground but still managed to hold on to her dogs leashes.   I was worried sick about the lady and took my shovel to protect myself from the rottweiler so I could check on the lady.  The thing is the rottweiler seemed to be under control at that time.  I wasn't going to take any chances.  In my heart I was ready to fight if I had to and asked God to help me.  Her being safe was more important than myself being safe, but when I got there, she had managed to get back on her feet.  I asked her if she needed any help.  She sharply yelled "No!"  So I walked away holding my shovel  and walked a safe distance away from the man and his rottweiler .

I wasn't mad at the lady because I knew she had just been through a horrible ordeal.

-------------------

I was taught somewhere in life to be friendly and be courteous, but sometimes even with people,
if they have used you, lied about you or betrayed a trust.  Just like the rottweiler experience, you have to keep your distance until the danger is taken care of.    I'm a very patient person, but even a patient person can
only take so much.

Arise In Christ




Arise In  Christ

Could this Resurrection Sunday;
 Be a new start for you?
Will you give your life to Jesus?
Will you trust in Him anew?

He wants to bring you hope today.
He wants you to come home.
He wants you to find joy today.
To never be alone.

Arise today and call His name.
God hears us when we pray.
 Arise to grace dear wanderer;
Come trust in Christ today.

Lay upon Him all your failures;
Let His Way be your start.
He will lead you into vict'ry;
Seek Him with all your heart.

Arise today and call His Name;
God hears us when we pray.
Oh Arise, to life, found in Christ;
Know Jesus is the Way.

Just A Little Note About My Past


Just A Little Note About My Past


This morning I was thinking about something that happened around eight or nine years ago. 

My husband put our offering in the offering plate in the middle of the week. We practically lived at our church and no one except those cleaning, would normally be in the church without us knowing. 

One night we noticed something, one end of our offering envelope was torn open. We couldn't understand how someone could do such a thing. We thought maybe they wanted to see how much we tithed, or they were looking for cash. 

We noticed a roll of paper towels beside the offering plate left by those cleaning our church building. We really couldn't prove who did it, but God knew.

That same night we got news that one of the young persons cleaning our church had an unusual accident, which left us wondering. His finger was nearly severed off with his own knife and hung by just a small bit of flesh and skin.

Touching or hurting anything that belongs to God should be something we should fear. No one else may know the truth but God always knows the truth and nothing is hidden from Him. God's eyes are everywhere beholding the evil and the good.

Proverbs 15:3 ¶ The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good.

Just A Little Note About My Past


Just A Little Note About My Past

It was such a beautiful sunny day today.  It was a nice break from all the snow we were getting there for a while.  They are calling for a few more snowy days before the warm weather takes over completely.  When there is snow and cold weather there is usually ice.  

I thought I had time to tell a story about something that happened to me on a cold icy day when I was a young teen. 

 I grew up in the hills of W.Va.  The homes in West Virginia are usually upon hills.  Our school was upon a hill and had steps that were divided into sections. There must of been three sections of twenty steps all the way to the top. The steps lead to the double door entrance of our school.

One day as we were being dismissed from our classes, to catch the bus, we walked out to ice covered steps all the way to the bottom.  It was very dangerous but it was the only way down.  

On my way down to the bus my feet landed on the ice and I started slipping down those steps.  If I were to fall at all on those steps there would have been injuries because they were very steep and seemingly unending.

Well I started sliding and sliding on the third section of twenty steps. My body stiffened up in terror of falling down those icy steps. I prayed in my heart "please God don't let me fall."  God must have sent an angel to keep me from falling because I skated in tennis shoes uncontrollably. My body was as stiff as a board all the way to the bottom without falling.  It was a miracle I did not fall and I'm so grateful I didn't or I would of been badly hurt.

Everyday we are in danger of falling in some way and each day I ask the Lord, "Lord help me not fall.'   Help me stay in your will and plan for my life even when life
gets hard, even when things don't make sense.

 1 Corinthians 10:12 Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall

I Wanna Live My Life On Hallelujah Corner


I Wanna Live My Life On Hallelujah Corner


I wanna live my life on hallelujah corner;
I don't wanna live in the desert of despair.
i wanna live a life of joy through Christ my Saviour;
A life of faith, a life of hope, and of prayer.

There are many many reasons we could lose our joy;
And I have found myself there many times.
But we could choose to  grieve ourselves near unto death;
Or set our eyes upon God's purposed design.

This life is a very small part of eternity;
I know at times it will drag us through affliction.
But when our heart is set upon our heavenly hope;
Joy wins, when Jesus gets our love and attention.

For us to  look upon the serpents of circumstance;
Will poison our hearts with this world's discouragement.
We have a reason for joy and a reason to sing;
It's in His presence we find His encouragement.

Rejoice in the Lord, then watch discouragement find rest;  
Don't waste your life away negative and depressed.
Don't let your heart be troubled continue in His hope.
Rejoice in the Lord, then watch your heart soon feel blest.

I wanna live my life on hallelujah corner;
I don't wanna live in the desert of despair.
i wanna live a life of joy through Christ my Saviour;
A life of faith, a life of hope, and of prayer.

Jesus Won The Victory For Us - corrected


Jesus Won The Victory For Us

Our Lord came to die that we could live;
He laid down His own life. 
The Lord had provided himself a lamb;
Himself, the sacrifice.

Holy, blameless, without spot, without sin;
Creator, omniscient;
God incarnate, the great Emanuel;
He took our punishment.

His blood fell upon the hill of death;
Upon the hill of scorn.
So you and I could find our way home;
So we could be reborn.

Jesus was laid in a borrowed tomb;
But death could not win.
He arose at the appointed time;
Death could not control Him.

Jesus won the victory for us;
He provided the Way.
When the light shined into the empty tomb;
On Resurrection day.

Jesus won the victory for us;
Jesus won over death.
Now on this Resurrection morning
We are so happy and blest.

Come Alive For The First Time


Come Alive For The First Time

What a morning it was, to find the tomb  was empty.
Oh what a morning, a morning to be blessed.
To find, you had risen from the dark grave as you said.
After days of tears and nights of sleeplessness.

Like the flowers arising, past the strength of winter;
Like the sun greeting with a new daybreak.
Like a baby chick hatching from its egg into light;
Like the dead seeds of the forests awake.

You arose from the grave of death and hell into life;
You conquered the curse upon all mankind.
You paid the sin debt of every sin sick sinner;
You gave hope to the hopeless and blind.

Like the light breaking forth into the dark of midnight;
Your love lights the way for the believing.
To see for the first time, how incredible you are;
To know your peace and relieving.

Like the dry bones in Bible stories written long ago;
The dry thirsty soul can find life in Christ.
Come alive for first time knowing, Jesus can save.
And that you provided everlasting life.
