This page, like so, so  many others on the WEB,  has come out of my realization of how deep I had slipped into complacency.

I won't even try to compete with the fantastically designed sites on the internet.

I simply want to offer you, when you happen by, a few thoughts that I have had and a chance to copy OUR flag if you would also like to display it. I have put most of the graphics on a separate page to allow this one to load faster, if you are interested in flag graphics (CLICK HERE)

  • Plan Succeeded???

    Printed in a Halifax, Nova Scotia newspaper 08/15/01

    Dear Editor,

    It is unclear to me what the intent of those responsible for planning the terrorist attack was, however:

  • 1. If it was to garner the U.S. the sympathy of the world - it worked!

  • 2. If it was to pack churches over the globe in prayer - it worked!

  • 3. If it was to fill blood banks with eager-to-give donors - it worked!

  • 4. If it was to open the homes of caring strangers to stranded passengers - it worked!

  • 5. If it was to strengthen the spirits and resolve of those affected - it worked!

  • 6. If it was to bond people closer - it worked!

  • 7. If it was to make visible the strength, love and courage of countless healers, volunteers and emergency personnel - it worked!

  • 8. If it was to bring out the best in people - it worked!

    If it was to instill in the hearts of North Americans the same evil that conquered their own hearts and the hearts responsible for their upbringing - it FAILED!
    (See 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 & 8 above)

** Obviously this date is wrong, but like all other quotes that I put here, I will not changes anything in them.  If the owner of the web site that it comes from tells me by email that it was a typo, I will correct it and remove this statement.

Some other things I've run into on the WEB:

"LET US HAVE FAITH THAT RIGHT MAKES MIGHT,
AND IN THAT FAITH, LET US, TO THE END,
DARE TO DO OUR DUTY AS WE UNDERSTAND IT."

-Abraham Lincoln- 

"President Told" is the name opres_told_small.jpg (8557 bytes)f this picture (Click here for larger View) and I believe this is a good spot for me to voice my opinion, and that's all it is, I don't want email, etc. about all other opinions, this is my web site, so I get to put my opinion here.

I believe GOD had the right man in the right spot at the right time. The BIBLE says GOD has given the rights and reasonability to governments to govern and protect it's people. IT goes on to talk about giving the sword to the government and that at times they must take up the sword against the enemy.

I think this is one of those times, I have not always agreed with our governments decisions and actions, but at those times I stood behind the government's decision and did not walk the streets protesting.

I believe that the way to show our disagreement with that type of thing is through our courts and our voting power, again, we need to stand united with others that share our views so that the majority rules. That is the way of DEMOCRACY, and that is what we are defending.

NUFF SAID, NO DEBATE    -    Paul

 

A Prayer 

I've cried to God as I've beheld The world wrapped up in fear 
Of life and death and war that looms To snatch lives held so dear 

I said, "My God! - Have you not heard The newsmen on TV?! 
Do you not know the shape we're in?! Do you not care for me?!" 

"I'm scared, Dear Jesus! - Help us! - 
Please! There's news of fear and war 
And I'm afraid, Lord - I admit! - Of what might be in store." 

"Peace, be still, My child," He said "And hear now what I say
For I have seen and heard the cries Of those who, to Me, pray. 

"Keep your eyes upon ME now Not what you hear or see
And, as you do, you'll keep My peace - 

IF your mind stays on ME!" 

"It matters not what one man says Or even many more
For I am God, and I decide Each day what lies in store." 

"I've told you there would be such times When,
of these things, You'd hear
I told you so you'd be PREPARED And FULL OF PEACE, not fear." 

"For all these things MUST be fulfilled Yet MY WORD fails not
For I AM still your Hiding Place As all the fires rage hot." 

"You're hid beneath MY shadow now And you can rest in Me
Yes you can trust My Words of LOVE To last eternally." 

"For I'm your Father, Counselor, Friend Your Alpha and your End
And if this was the world's last day Be sure, for you, I'd send." 

"I've promised I'd save you a place If you would stay in Me
Stay pure and faithful, eyes on Me And, victory, you'll see." 

"I can't tell you if it's 'the end' - NO human man can know
But I CAN tell you, it IS close, So be prepared to go." 

"Each day I give you, reach in love To save another soul
For snatching them from Me for Hell Is truly Satan's goal." 

"Occupy until I come Live each day FULL in ME
Just keep your eyes upon MY face And know that I DO see." 

"I see the world, I see YOUR LIFE And I DO care for YOU
And know, no matter WHAT occurs My love for you stands TRUE." 

"I'm Alpha and Omega - God - I'm King and Lord of ALL
I'll be right near to care for you As, on My name, you call." 

"For I can change the hearts of Kings And I, their hearts, do try
And I'M the one who formed this world And says when it shall die." 

"So, USE this time to SEEK THE LOST And tell them of My Love
That they, too, may be saved and live With Me, again, above." 

"Don't listen to fear's voice - 
hear MINE! Then STAND on what you've heard
Don't fear yours or the world's fate - It's destined by MY WORD." 

"Keep your eyes on ME, My Child, And let Me wipe each tear
For I am God and IN CONTROL - So live in peace, not fear."

War in the Making

Bombing started today,
As buildings collapsed
Many ran away.
Aiming and hitting us where it hurt
Nothing left to look at but dirt.
Thousands of lives to take,
Why wont this stop?
For heavenís sake!
Now all others laugh and faces full of smiles
While us free Americanís run for miles.
Tears run down faces,
As many run out of placesÖ
Places to go,
Places to sleep
Families of those we lost, just weep!
Those who think they are faking,
This is war in the making!
As the bomber is found,
Us free Americanís will stand our ground!!!

Dedicated to those who died, those suffering and all of us who sit and wait for war to come. 
LOVE AND GOD BLESS YOU ALL!

Firemen's Prayer

When I am called to duty, God,
Whenever Flames may rage,
give me strength to save some life
whatever be its age.
Help me embrace a little child
before it is to late,
or save an old person
from the horror of that fate.
Enable me to be alert
and hear the weakest shout.
to quickly and efficiently
put the fire out.
I want to fill my calling
and to give the best in me,
to guard my every neighbor
and protect his property.
And if according to my fate ....
I am to lose my life,
please bless with your protecting hand
my children and my wife.

The Creation of the Fire Fighter


When the Lord was creating fire fighters, he was into his sixth day of overtime when an angel appeared and 
said, "You're doing a lot of fiddling around on this one." 
And the Lord said, "Have you read the specification on this person? Fire fighters have to be able to go for 
hours fighting fires or tending to a person that the usual everyday person would never touch, while putting in 
the back of their minds the circumstances. They have to be able to move at a second's notice and not think 
twice of what they are about to do, no matter what danger. They have to be in top physical condition at all 
times, running on half-eaten meals, and they must have six pairs of hands." 
The angel shook her head slowly and said, "Six pairs of hands...no way." 
"It's not the hands that are causing me problems," said the Lord, "it's the three pairs of eyes a fire fighter has 
to have." 
"That's on the standard model?" asked the angel.

The Lord nodded. "One pair to see through the fire and where they and their fellow fire fighters should fight the 
fire next. Another pair here in the side of the head to see their fellow fire fighters and keep them safe. And 
another pair of eyes in the front so that they can look for the victims caught in the fire who need their help."

"Lord," said the angel, touching his sleeve, "rest and work on this tomorrow." 

"I can't," said the Lord, "I already have a model that can carry a 250-pound man down a flight of stairs to 
safety from a burning building, and can feed a family of five on a civil service paycheck."

The angel circled the model of the fire fighter very slowly, "Can it think?" 

"You bet," said the Lord. "They can tell you the elements of a hundred fires and can recite procedures in their 
sleep that are needed to care for a person until they reach the hospital. And all the while they have to keep 
their wits about them. Fire fighters also have phenomenal personal control. They can deal with a scene full of 
pain and hurt, coaxing a child's mother into letting go of the child so that they can care for the child in need. 
And still they rarely get the recognition for a job well done from anybody, other than from fellow fire fighters." 

Finally, the angel bent over and ran her finger across the cheek of the fire fighter. "There's a leak," she 
pronounced. "Lord, it's a tear. What's the tear for?"

"It's a tear from bottled-up emotions for fallen comrades. A tear for commitment to that funny piece of cloth 
called the American flag. It's a tear for all the pain and suffering they have encountered. And it's a tear for their 
commitment to caring for and saving lives of their fellow man!"

"What a wonderful feature. Lord, you're a genius," said the angel. 

The Lord looked somber and said, "I didn't put it there."
