Here I am returning after 120 days of being gone again. Does not seem that long ago since I stopped in for a visit. Time is going by so fast and I seem not to be able to keep up the pace as well as I did when younger. When I am of heavy heart this site seems to be the place to come and share my sorrow. Now nothing terrible has happened, only a disappointment in my fellow man that has saddened me. I prayed to the Lord, asking Him in His goodness and mercy to give me a forgiving heart so that my days to come will be a bit brighter. What happened you might be wondering? I found a fun website where you trade credits for stuff that someone else does not want anymore, kind of like a on-line yardsale where everything is free but shipping to the winner of your stuff. One person got my stuff, then gave me a false address to sent it to. Now my package is being returned to me at my expense because I sent it media rate. The stuff is worthless to me, but the sadness comes from why would you say you want something if your not going to be honest and give the correct address. This one has me scratching my head wondering "what is going on"? It is like a sick joke at my expense. I had it tracked which is proably why the post office did not just leave it at this address. It just makes me realize how far we have fallen as a country where honesty is hardly seen, hard to come by and seldom used. I pray that good times are ahead.....where the words of Jesus.... keep calling out to us.....to come and return to Him.   Sad Sad

Hello Islandboy,

I'm sorry that you happened onto one of the not honest types on the Internet. However, I'm happy that it didn't result in a huge loss. It could have been much worse.

Identity theft is the big thing happening on the Internet these days, and that's an expensive nightmare. They don't know how it's done in many cases, and the businesses involved are honest. They somehow get your credit card information and go on a spending spree. Regardless, I'm sorry that you had a bad experience.

It's great to see you here, Islandboy.

I too am sorry to hear that you were the victim of some twisted, cruel jokester. It doesn't make sense what some people will do. I am sure though that there are some very nice people on that web site that are a pleasure to encounter.

Well it is my time to apologize. The cruel joke was on me, thanks to the post office, not the person whom I thought. The address was right but my package had been sent the wrong way. I was mistaken in what is allowed by media mail and so that is why it was returned to me. Of the hundreds and thousands of packages that go every day, mine had to be opened by a nibby post man. The cruel joke was it made it to the persons home town post office. Instead of asking her if she would pay the difference they returned it to me after three long days of bouncing it all over her state. So I ask the person if she would forgive me for the misunderstanding and if she still wanted her package I would send it out again. She did (praise the Lord), so off it went today. I am eating humble pie tonight but I am thankful the whole mess got straightened out. This was a week full of misdirections and confusing times, but all is well this evening. Wonder what tomarrow will bring? Hopefully it will be bright days ahead with not too much stress. I need a good long rest.

Hello Islandboy,

I'm happy to hear that things are going to work out better. Maybe this is a good reminder to relax more and take things one day at a time. YES, bright days are ahead.

Love In Christ,
Tom

I live in Florida. I am not crazy about hurricanes and often wish i had somewhere else to go during the summer months. I am 53 years older but feel wiser than I was in my youth. I continue to study the Bible and keep many people in my thoughts and prayers. I have changed to a different church recently and feel that I will develop many new christian friends that believe in the Bible, as it stands without new changes to soften and hide it's true meanings. Our world is changing and now more than ever we as christians must seek out each other in fellowship and in prayer. I hope in posting and sharing and reading others posts, I will be able to learn more which will help me as I continue to serve the Lord.
I am just  l Iike  you,I love the lord,and love reading GODS WORD.

Angel44, It was so nice of you to quote my words from so long ago. I spent 24 years in Fl, before I returned home to PA. No more hurricanes, but now I have cold weather and snow. But through all the years my one constant has been my love for the Lord. The more I hear and read about Him and His life and promises to us, the stronger I become in my faith. And I think I become a better person for it. Please write here again if you choose to do so. Glad that you made it to the forum. I look forward to reading your posts.

This is sort of my page and since folks seem to like reading all the entries I figured maybe it was okay to keep it going.
It says I have been away for 120 days. Yes, this time it is true. Life keeps me so busy lately that it is a wonder I get anything done at all.
Been caring for my mother, and moved again to a tiny house on the edges of town. I have a big backyard that is up against the woods and a house that is the right size for me. And have the use of a car that makes getting places a lot easier.
It is snowing and cold today. I think they said 26 degrees. But I am warm and safe.
I hope all of whom I have chatted with in the past are still here. I will be going about the forum saying hello again. Hope all is well and your all doing well, and life is good. The way things are progressing and the evil that lurks every closer is good enough reason to band together and hold the fort. Sending out blessings to each and everyone of the Lord's faithful followers who are here on a daily or yearly (my case) lol , time frame.

Hello Islandboy,

Yes, many of us are still here. It's great to hear from you. It sounds like things are going good for you. I like the idea of you keeping this thread (page) going.

Love In Christ,

I am glad to be back. Thanks for the warm welcome from both of you. I am keeping busy writing on forums and blogs, trying to earn some pocket change. It is very time- consuming writing and the rest of the time caring for mom.
I am hoping to add some interesting topic's here for discussion, like the past years of posts. I went back to the begining and was really amazed on how much information is contained in all these 500 and some posts. I think I had more to say when I was in Florida. lol   Not that Pennsylvania, is boring, but I got out in the woods more down there.

The biggest news around here is our blizzards like today and the gas wells with that fracking business that often ruins peoples water wells. Can you imagine being able to light your water on fire? I would think it would make your whole house a time-boom, not funny but if you had that water in all the pipes and systems in your house it could be very dangerous. people are really worried up here about this type of drilling.

well that is my news update. see you around the forum. It is good to be back here.  Roll Eyes

Hello Islandboy,

The big news for me is that my wife and I had our 40th Anniversary yesterday. Time flies - she said that she was keeping me. 

I know almost nothing about fracking except what little I've read. I didn't know anything about contaminating water supplies. I can only imagine how dangerous that would be.

It's 65F here right now, so I'm having a hard time imagining a blizzard. Stay warm and safe.

Love In Christ,
Tom

Our big news here is the birth of our 8th grandchild, a girl, 8lbs 3oz, 19 inches at 5:30 AM yesterday. Grandma and I are looking forward to spoiling her.

I've heard both sides of the water burning and don't know what to make of it. Deep wells vs shallow water wells most likely will never be anything but a disagreement for a very long time. I do remember stories from my Mother and grandfather telling of water wells burning as they do have methane naturally in those that are not properly vented.

Congratulations on the birth of new grandchild! And for the 40th time that your wife said you were a keeper!  lol

I don't have any amazing news to tell other than I am approaching sixty and I still can't believe I have managed to live this long. My brain still thinks I am much younger but my body thinks I am much older. I can't seem to convince either one of my right age.

The weather here was suppose to improve, but we got another snow storm today and the roads were bad again tonight. They said on the scanner the roads were like a sheet of ice. Don't bother me much as I can not drive at night due to cateracts. So I like sunny days the best. Springtime will be coming soon I hope.   Roll Eyes
