This is a picture of my Dad, taken when he was oh so young. I love this picture and when I go to have a copy made the Walmart people refuse me because it was taken by a professional. Well, the photographer was Dad himself! He belonged to a photography club and was passionate about his hobby. I used to hate the hours spent swishing photos through rinse water and all the chemicals he had to use. He was good, no doubt about it. If I could only convince those folks at Walmart that I can't get a written release from him. Frustrating! Life goes on. My Dad passed away with a brain tumor in his very early fifties. I've already outlived him. Photography and his boxer dogs were his only hobbies and he excelled at enjoying both.~~~I hadn't realized I'm behind on my posting lately. Its such a busy time of year! I'm eyeing the front picture window this morning, its been quite a while since I washed those windows but there are black wasps floating all around them. Later, I think. ~~~I bid on some vcr movies lately and won them. In the mix was Seal Morning...Rowena & the Seal. This was a very special movie, one my Mother & I watched together at the nursing home in her room. We closed the door and pulled up her wheel chair and my folding chair close to her tv and just .....enjoyed!! I had rented this movie from the library, but they discarded it due to wear and tear so I am blessed to get this sweet movie in my hands....it was already a warm memory in my heart. Blessings to each of you! My life is richer indeed because of my blogging friends! Just think, to each who is 'born again' Christians, we will spend eternity together...really!!! What a joy that will be!. I saw part of a History channel special on 'Hell' yesterday and it makes my heart soar with thankfullness that I have 'believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved." Thats just what I did, after a week of evangelistic meetings ....I threw away my pride and self assurances that I was just such a good person and confessed to God in prayer that I was a hell deserving sinner that needed and wanted his forgiveness and salvation. Praise His Holy name!! If I were God I would give up on people like me quickly.....I'm so glad God is love...aren't you? Still, our choices have to be made while we are alive. After death comes to us, the decisions we have made or not made here in this life are permanent and final. (you will find me testifying of Jesus often, because millions plus are dying and going to hell every day...in spite of Calvary and the Bible, which tells the truth of salvation) ( and some perhaps, like me, go for years...maybe all thier life, believing the lie of the devil, that all is well, just do what you think best...but do accept Christ as Saviour when presented with the gospel, how Christ was crucified, buried and rose again the 3rd day for our sins.) "For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but to them which are saved it is the power of God" I know many of you are saved and trusting Christ!...but I'm thinking of those who aren't yet saved but may yet repent and believe on Christ too.
