Thank you for praying for my brother .Jamie’s greatest need now is to get his swallowing reflex back so please pray that he will be able to do that.  he must be able to swallow properly in order to eat again without the feeding tube.

My mother is doing great at almost 101 but she does not know that Jamie is so ill he has lost about 60 pounds so he looks very different.  we are concerned how she will react when she sees him for the first few times it was a shock to me and I know it will be a greater shock to her to see him so thin.

I am posting this from my iPad which is new. I am using a microphone to dictate instead of typing. Sure love these newfangled Inventions. It is much smarter than I am but I am trying to keep up with it.

Best wishes to all of you dear readers.


“Just Being Jana”

Jana20-150x150Headed to a listing yesterday on Doc Gray Road with James Tucker via Highway 67. The trip started as most with talk of stocks and bonds, athletic competitions and of course….me being hungry. About halfway into the trip, the subject of the new Corvette was brought up complete with sounds effects and a visual aid. As we went to pass a semi, James scooted down in his seat, pretended to shift and made the “gear changing” noise that sadly….more than one man I know does. At the point we were even with the driver of the truck, James made a fist, pounded his chest twice and shot the driver a peace sign. It was this point I had my failed attempt at crawling under the seat….

There is only one woman buried in the SF (Special Forces) cemetery at Ft Bragg. Her name is Martha Raye.  

M. Raye

We knew her as a likable  woman with a  big laugh and outrageous behavior,  usually the best friend to the female star of the movie providing slapstick and humor.  We were less aware of her service to our country during the Vietnam war.    

Martha Raye’s exemplary service to the Army including trips to Vietnam to entertain the Green Berets, earned her a funeral with military honors.  The actress/comedienne, who died in Los Angeles at the age of 78, requested several years earlier to be buried at Fort Bragg, home of the Green Berets.  She was to get her wish after a ceremony with a flag-draped casket and military pallbearers.  She entertained troops in Vietnam for nine straight years, four months a year, spending much of the time with isolated Special Forces detachments in camps all over the country.  Normally only active duty and retired Army personnel are buried on post, but the Defense Department granted an exception for Raye, who was made an honorary lieutenant colonel in the Special Forces in 1966 by President Lyndon B. Johnson.

Romans 8:38-39 New International Version (NIV)   For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,neither the present nor the future, nor any powers,  neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.


Chinese New Testament:  (ERV-ZH)  因为我坚信,不论是死还是生,不论是天使,还是统治的灵,不论是现在还是将来,不论任何精神力量,  不论是在我们之上的任何事物,还是在我们之下的任何事物,或其它被造的一切,都无法把我们与体现在主基督耶稣身上的上帝之爱分开。


Vietnamese Bible: (BPT)  Tôi tin chắc rằng dù sự chết, sự sống, thiên sứ, thần linh, việc hiện tại, việc tương lai, quyền lực,  những gì bên trên chúng ta, bên dưới chúng ta, hoặc bất cứ biến cố nào trên thế giới, không điều gì có thể phân cách chúng ta khỏi tình yêu mà Thượng Đế đã bày tỏ ra trong Giê-xu, Đấng Cứu Thế, Chúa chúng ta.


Римляни 8:38-39 Ukrainian New Testament:  (ERV-UK)  Бо я переконаний, що ні смерть, ні життя, ні Ангели, ні вищі духи, ні те що тепер, ні те що в майбутньому, ані яка духовна влада, ніщо над нами, ані під нами, ні будь-яке інше створіння — ніщо не зможе відлучити нас від Божої любові, яка знаходиться в Христі Ісусі, нашому Господі.


Warumi 8:38-39 Swahili New Testament (SNT) Kwa maana nina hakika kuwa, si kifo wala uzima; si malaika wala mashetani; si mambo ya sasa wala mambo yajayo au mamlaka nyingineyo yote; si mambo yaliyo juu wala yaliyo chi ni sana; wala hakuna kitu kingine cho chote kati ya vitu vyote alivyoumba Mungu kitakachoweza kututenga na upendo wa Mungu ulio ndani ya Kristo Yesu Bwana wetu.

Highclere Castle

Danny Aanderlud and family visited the castle made even more famous by the award winning, great TV series, Downton Abbey. Danny is one of my ‘friends’ from FB.  Even though I don’t know him personally, I really enjoy his posts and seeing his growing family.  He is in the ministry and a musician.  Best wishes to the Aanderlud family and their work for the Lord.
