The Wiccan Rede

Bide the Wiccan Laws we must In Perfect Love and Perfect Trust. Live and let live. Fairly take and fairly give. Cast the Circle thrice about To keep the evil spirits out. To bind the spell every time Let the spell be spake in rhyme. Soft of eye and light of touch, Speak little, listen much. Deosil go by the waxing moon, Chanting out the Witches' Rune. Widdershins go by the waning moon, Chanting out the baneful rune. When the Lady's moon is new, Kiss the hand to her, times two. When the moon rides at her peak, Then your heart's desire seek, Heed the North wind's mighty gale, Lock the door and drop the sail. When the wind comes from the South, Love will kiss thee on the mouth. When the wind blows from the West, Departed souls will have no rest. When the wind blows from the East, Expect the new and set the feast. Nine woods in the cauldron go, Burn them fast and burn them slow. Elder be the Lady's tree, Burn it not or cursed you'll be. When the Wheel begins to turn, Let the Beltane fires burn. When the Wheel has turned to Yule, Light the log and the Horned One rules. Heed ye Flower, Bush and Tree, By the Lady, blessed be. Where the rippling waters go, Cast a stone and truth you'll know. When ye have a true need, Hearken not to others' greed. With a fool no season spend, Lest ye be counted as his friend. Merry meet and merry part, Bright the cheeks and warm the heart. Mind the Threefold Law you should, Three times bad and three times good. When misfortune is enow, Wear the blue star on thy brow. True in Love ever be, Lest thy lover's false to thee. Eight words the Wiccan Rede fulfill: An ye harm none, do what ye will.
- Blessed Be -

Something to Think about...

Doctors vs. Gun Owners
(A)  The number of physicians in the  U.S. is 700,000.
(B)  Accidental deaths caused by Physicians
per year are 120,000.
(C)  Accidental deaths per physician is 0.171.
Statistics courtesy of  U.S. Dept of Health and Human Services.
>>>>>>>> ~~~ <<<<<<<<
Now think about this:
(A)  The number of gun owners in the U.S. is 80,000,000.
(Yes, that's 80 million)
(B)  The number of accidental gun deaths per year, all age groups, is 1,500.
(C)  The number of accidental deaths per gun owner is .000188.
Statistics courtesy of FBI
>>>>>>>> ~~~ <<<<<<<<
So,  statistically, doctors are approximately 9,000 times more dangerous than gun owners.
>>>>>>>> ~~~ <<<<<<<<
Remember, 'Guns don't kill people, "doctors" do.'
>>>>>>>> ~~~ <<<<<<<<
Almost everyone has at least one doctor.
This means you are over 900 times more likely to be killed by a doctor as a gun owner!!!
>>>>>>>> ~~~ <<<<<<<<
Please alert your friends to this alarming threat. We must ban doctors before this gets completely out of hand!!!!!
So maybe we need to pray more about using doctors
>>>>>>>> ~~~ <<<<<<<<
(Out of concern for the public at large, the statistics on lawyers were left out for fear the shock would cause people to panic and seek medical attention)


I want to thank Shirley for passing this a long. I knew that the stats on Gun related deaths and such was low... Gun owners really do get a bad rap.

Pray with me

These pictures are taken at the beach in Santa Barbara right next to the pier. There is a veterans group that started putting a cross and candle for every death in Iraq and Afghanistan . The amazing thing is that they only do it on the weekends. They put up this graveyard and take it down every weekend. Guys sleep in the sand next to it and keep watch over it at night so nobody messes with it. Every cross has the name, rank and D.O.B. and D.O.D. on it. Very moving,very powerful??? so many young volunteers. So many 30 to 40 year olds as well. Amazing !

This is the problem: Did you know that the ACLU has filed a suit to have all military cross-shaped headstones removed? And another suit to end prayer from the military completely. They're making great progress. The Navy Chaplains can no longer mention Jesus (Yeshua) name in prayer. Thanks to the ACLU and our new administration. How can will stand by and allow this to happen? Please send this on after a short prayer for our soldiers.
'Heavenly Father, hold our troops in Your loving hands. Protect them as they protect us. Bless them and their families for the selfless acts they perform for us in this our time of need. These things I humbly ask in the name of Yeshua, our Lord and Savior, Amen.'

Of all the gifts you could give a Marine, Soldier, Sailor, Airman, others deployed in harm's way, prayer is the very best one. This needs our Immediate Attention. Please Pray very hard about this. Can you see where this is going?


This is to all of you who Mean something to me,
I pray for your happiness. The Candle Of Love, Hope & Friendship

This candle was lit on the
15th of September, 1998

Someone who loves you has helped
Keep it alive by sending it to you.
Don't let The Candle of Love, Hope and Friendship die

Pass It On To All Of Your Friends
And Everyone You Love! May God richly bless you!

~~~ NOTICE ~~~,
Thank You Shirley 

Think about Such Things.

This was during the Feast of Tabernacles. I enjoyed myself very much and learned a great deal about the feast. I certainly enjoyed the Thanksgiving Feast ;) at the end of the week. Thank you David, Tam and Family, I am so glad be apart of your family.. Maybe next year I will sleep outside - it was far to cold for me... So what am I going to do when winter finally gets here. Ouch! Guess I can make like I Grizzly Bear and HIBERNATE, LOL.

Is it not Time...

We Served for you, 
Some Fought for you, 
Some Died for you!
and possibly saved
"Your Life"
and you "Reward" us with
Whether you love him or hate him ... 
~Limbaugh Nailed This One ~

By Rush Limbaugh:

I think the vast differences in compensation between victims of the September 11 casualty and those who die serving our country in Uniform are profound. No one is really talking about it either, because you just don't criticize anything having to do with September 11. Well, I can't let the numbers pass by because it says something really disturbing about the entitlement mentality of this country. If you lost a family member in the September 11 attack, you're going to get an average of $1,185,000. The range is a minimum guarantee of $250,000, all the way up to $4.7 million..
If you are a surviving family member of an American soldier killed in action,
the first check you get is a $6,000 direct death benefit, half of which is taxable.
Next, you get $1,750 for burial costs. If you are the surviving spouse, you get $833 a month until you remarry. And there's a payment of $211 per month for each child under 18. When the child hits 18, those payments come to a screeching halt.
Keep in mind that some of the people who are getting an average of $1.185 million up to $4.7 million are complaining that it's not enough. Their deaths were tragic, but for most, they were simply in the wrong place at the wrong time.  Soldiers put themselves in harms way FOR ALL OF US, and they and their families
know the dangers...
(Actually, soldiers are put in harms way by politicians and commanding officers.)
We also learned over the weekend that some of the victims from the Oklahoma City bombing have started an organization asking for the same deal that the September 11 families are getting. In addition to that, some of the families of those bombed in the embassies are now asking for compensation as well.
You see where this is going, don't you? Folks, this is part and parcel of over 50 years of entitlement politics in this country. It's just really sad. Every time a pay raise comes up for the military, they usually receive next to nothing of a raise. Now the green machine is in combat in the Middle East while their families have to survive on food stamps and live in low-rent housing.  Make sense?
However, our own US Congress voted themselves a raise. Many of you don't know that they only have to be in Congress one time to receive a pension that is more than $15,000 per month. And most are now equal to being millionaires plus. They do not receive Social Security on retirement because they didn't have to pay into the system. If some of the military people stay in for 20 years and get out as an E-7, they may receive a pension of $1,000 per month, and the very people who
placed them in harm's way receives a pension of $15,000 per month.

I would like to see our elected officials pick up a weapon and join ranks before they start cutting out benefits and lowering pay for our sons and daughters who are now
"When do we finally do something about this?"

I want to Thank all of you that have passed this around especially "Wendy"

Purify Yourself

2Cor 7:1 Since we have these promises, dear friends, let us purify ourselves from everything that contaminates body and spirit, perfecting holiness out of reverence for God.

The promises he's referring to are mentioned at the end of chapter 6, namely,

(Lev 26:12)  "I will live with them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they will be my people."
(Is 52:11)"Therefore come out from them and be separate, says the Lord. Touch no unclean thing, and I will receive you."
(Hos 1:10) "I will be a Father to you, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty."

While the quotes from Lev and Hos are unconditional, what are we to make of the quote from Isaiah 52? Is this teaching salvation by works? Well if we go back to chapter 6 and review Paul's thinking that led up to sharing these verses we notice that he's not alluding to salvation. For example in 2Cor 6:14,15 the reason he gives as to why believers should not be yoked with unbelievers is not in order to be saved. For he views the Corinthians as already saved. But rather his argument is that it's simply not appropriate behavior Yet he speaks of the Corinthinas along with himself as being the temple of God. "For we are the temple of the living God" 2Cor 6:16b. It's not that the saints purify themselves in order to be saved, but rather having been saved, the saints purify themselves, as that is the appropriate thing to do given our reconciled relationship with God and given that we are the temple of the living God.

This is important. For the gospel gives us significantly different motivation than those under the Law. Those under the Law purify themselves in order to attain a righteous status. But those under the grace given us through faith in the gospel are given a righteous status as a gift from God, and the regeneration by the Holy Spirit affects our attitude and behavior. It's not that the saints need to purify themselves, but rather that the saints do purify themselves because it's the right thing to do.


This song is sung my Mariah Carey, I have known this story since high school, to me it describes your love and passion to the person you love the most. At times you want to smother that person with so much love, passion and attention that you could just destroy the very love and passion that you enjoy the most. This song reminds me to not hold on so tightly to that which you love, no matter what it is: a person, a pet, or a thing. I loved my Chihuahua's so much, but I knew It would crush my Mother if I had taken them with me to Missouri, and my future was not sure, so, I left them with my Mother, I would rather break my heart than hers. I hope she knows just how I love her, with every kiss they give her. I am not sure what moves me about this video, wither it is the horses, the butterflies, or the feeling of flight. Just remember what you truly love will not leave because they feel that love and desire to be near it. Please join me as I play this embedded video below.

'Gulliver's Travels' December 22 2010

Tom Swift's classic tale is coming to the screen one more time. The lead role is played by Jack Black. Can Jack's role playing even come close the Ted Danson in the 1996 movie by HallMark Home Entertainment,'Gulliver's Travels'? You tell me. See ya at the movies.

Knee Surgery?

Is it me or does it seem like knee surgery is as common as going to the dentist? Let's see my Mother had it done twice. One of my Radio buddies had it done and now a very special person I know is going to have it. To make matter interesting, my knee is on its way out as well. Below is a video about knee surgery for women. By far women have more knee surgery's than men as a whole.  

Web MD the premiere source for medical information on the internet, has information on knee surgery's. Stop here and look it over.

Started Going to a Gym

The Ozarks Family YMCA is located on 315 E Center in Seymour, MO which is a 24 or 25 mile round trip or me. I will be lucky if I get to go twice a week. Give them a call and come join me in the pool, actually I going to the therapy pool it makes my shoulder feel so much better while I am there... later It yells at me and scolds me for what I made it do, LOL . They also have a nice swimming pool with live Lifeguards that are actually on duty. If ya are meeting me there in the morning say "Hi" to Karen.  They also have some pool tables if you care to shoot pool with me. I think I will schedule my visits on Tuesday and Thursday for now.Later when I get my insurance through SSDI I may join the "Silver Snickers" fitness program which is by insurance.  Well come from a swim and shoot some ool with me anytime, just drop me a note first. Okay.  Don't forget your swim suit, towel and your pool stick!  After-wards we can go to Mickey D's for a cold one.  Have I nice day now.

Define Love

This is by far the most difficult question for mankind to define and to understand. When you are going into a relationship or if you are already there this is an important concept to grasp and to strive for. Let's turn to the Bible to answer this question. As the Holy Bible is truly our only "owners manual" that has been with us since the beginning of recorded history.

1Corinthians 13:7  (Love) bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things
1Corinthians 13:8  Love never fails; but if there are gifts of prophecy, they will be done away; if there are tongues, they will cease; if there is knowledge, it will be done away.
1 Corinthians 13

1 If I speak with human eloquence and angelic ecstasy but don't love, I'm nothing but the creaking of a rusty gate. 2 If I speak God's Word with power, revealing all his mysteries and making everything plain as day, and if I have faith that says to a mountain, "Jump," and it jumps, but I don't love, I'm nothing. 3-7 If I give everything I own to the poor and even go to the stake to be burned as a martyr, but I don't love, I've gotten nowhere. So, no matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do, I'm bankrupt without love.

   Love never gives up.
   Love cares more for others than for self.
   Love doesn't want what it doesn't have.
   Love doesn't strut,
   Doesn't have a swelled head,
   Doesn't force itself on others,
   Isn't always "me first,"
   Doesn't fly off the handle,
   Doesn't keep score of the sins of others,
   Doesn't revel when others grovel,
   Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth,
   Puts up with anything,
   Trusts God always,
   Always looks for the best,
   Never looks back,
   But keeps going to the end.

 8-10 Love never dies. Inspired speech will be over some day; praying in tongues will end; understanding will reach its limit. We know only a portion of the truth, and what we say about God is always incomplete. But when the Complete arrives, our incompletes will be canceled.

 11 When I was an infant at my mother's breast, I gurgled and cooed like any infant. When I grew up, I left those infant ways for good.

 12 We don't yet see things clearly. We're squinting in a fog, peering through a mist. But it won't be long before the weather clears and the sun shines bright! We'll see it all then, see it all as clearly as God sees us, knowing him directly just as he knows us!

 13 But for right now, until that completeness, we have three things to do to lead us toward that consummation: Trust steadily in God, hope unswervingly, love extravagantly.

And the best of the three is love.

The Greatest Commandment Given

Yeshua (Jesus) was asked a question by the Pharisees: “Which commandment of the law is the greatest?” (Matthew 22:34-40)
 Yeshua's reply to them was two fold. “You shall love the Lord your God with your whole heart, with your whole soul, and with all your mind” (Deuteronomy 6:5). “This is the greatest and first commandment. The second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ (Leviticus 19:18).(1) 

In the Ten Commandments that was handle down to Moses, they were broken into areas that we need to focus on. 1) that the first three are about loving God and 2) the other seven are about loving your neighbor. 
If you read every line of the Bible, you’d be able to put each command in column A (love God) or column B (love your neighbor).  So these two commandments are indeed the root of them all.
But the reason Yeshua's answer hits the Pharisees is that these two root commandments are precisely the ones the Pharisees keep breaking.  Observance of the law for them is not an act of divine worship but rather of self-promotion. Rather than their observance of the law leading to love of neighbor, it leads to scorn of neighbors who fail to live up to their standards (see how they treat the blind man in John 9:24-34).  Note what Paul, (the converted Pharisee), says: “If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal (1 Corinthians 13:1).”  Paul knew this from experience–he spent years as a gong. 
Yet Yeshua did not say just to love. He said we must love the Lord with our WHOLE heart and soul and with ALL our mind and strength. So does wholehearted love of God leave no room in your heart for a spouse or children (personally I have asked this question for years)? 
If that were the case, there would be no second great commandment in this story.  In fact Jesus says the second commandment is like the first.  That’s because the kind of wholehearted love Jesus is talking about is agape, which means loving God for his own sake and all others for his sake, and doing so not by human strength, but with the divine love that is poured into our heart by the Holy Spirit (Romans 5:5). When we love others with charity, we love God through them.  Our every loving act towards them becomes an expression of our love for God. I want to thank Dr. Marcellino D'Ambrosiofor  sharing his incites on this topic.


October 31, 2010
I am pretty much a one on one kinda guy. So at this time I ask ya all not to send me a message or wink at me. For all of those that are pen-pals I will try to keep up the responses. I have found one special person that I would really like to devote more attention to and travel time. Juggling relations, is not cool. Please wish me well. Thanks for all of you being so sweet.
