Getting To Where We Are


Come May 8th, 2013, at the current pace of things, I’ll have had 10 years of constant pain with only brief periods without pain over a 6 in a scale of 1 to 10, the longest being 15 months and 1 week.  Much of that time, even with pain arresting drugs and steroid use, the daily rattle is somewhere between 7 and 8.5 for 45 minutes to several hours at a time – over and over and over again, all day long.  Even with severe pain management treatments, the pain never goes away and the seizures don’t totally stop.

NOTICE: I’m STILL putting one word at a time down in Series like this one, taking one step after another, keeping my head in the Bible with hours of study per day, joyously enjoying Gospel music every moment possible AND work 8-10 hours per day at a work-a-day job, consult at least one night a week, am FAITHFUL to MY CHURCH, teach an INCREDIBLE 3rd Grade Bus Sunday School Class, plus — am married to an AWESOME wife who does everything better than me, well besides computer work and talking and have a 15 year old young lady who is a REAL teenager, who is the Apple of two fellas eyes – mine and my Grandfather’s!  DID you see how that ALL ran together???  HOW does all that happen?  — HIS GRACE IS SUFFICIENT! — that’s how!

Two verses of Scripture come to mind when thinking about what God has been GOOD to me in and through: John 8:12 (My Life Verse) | KJV and James 4:10 (my Revival Life Verse) | KJV.

Life Verse

Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
John 8:12 | King James Version

Revival Life Verse

Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.
James 4:10 | King James Version

There are a special group of men who KNOW how that second verse came about – it CHANGED my life, which is what drives me today for what you are seeing right now.
