One leg, and cancer: Read how this youngster overcame the odds!

 I just finished reading "Grace in the Middle" a few days ago. I was given a free copy in exchange for a review. At first I didn't think it was for me. Because near the beginning she speaks of how we might feel as if God has left us. In the Word, it says He is always with us and that He will never leave us. And yet, sometimes we are so caught up in what's going on that we sometimes don't 'feel' that God is there with us.

I think this book will help anyone who reads it, especially those who feel their situation is hopeless.

I was moved by this story and the real hero is Savannah. Not that anyone else took the credit for anything that wasn't theirs. This little lady definitely has spunk.

I laughed, I cried and most of all I thanked God for His mercy and compassion on this family.

It's about time!

I truly liked this story. It has a few nuggets of that truth that helped me personally. I think there are a lot of truths in it, and that many of the things did and/or are happening as it does in the story. It's wonderful, and gives people a new view of God the Father, angels and demons. I think there is way too much religious spirit in churches and not enough of God's Holy Spirit. I think there is way too much emphasis on programs and way too little of being led by the Spirit.
I realize that there are counterfeit spirits at work, but that is one of the reasons why Father gave us the discerning of spirits so that we can know which is interacting with us. Is it the Holy Spirit or satan's counterfeit? For instance, dancing in the spirit. Is it Biblical? Yes it is. David danced before the Lord.
I had a better relationship with my dad than with my mom. I mention this because in one place in the book, the angel talks about Scots' relationship with the Father and his relationship with the world. Regardless of what has happened in my life, I've always felt as if God never let me down. I've not always lived as a Christian, but I've felt his presence with me even then, as well as the angels. I've also seen demons. Not my cup of tea. But to know they're there and to see them is a big help sometimes. I'm learning to look at what God the Father is doing in my life rather than what satan is doing. This is also mentioned in the book, and while we need to cast out demons, let's not see everything as being done by demons. Use God's Word of Wisdom and Word of Knowledge. I talk to God just as if I'm talking to my earthly dad, although my earthly dad has returned to be with the Father for a few years now, as has my mom.
People talk about praying. I usually say that I don't know how to pray. I just talk to God, just like I would talk to my dad. I can talk to God the Father about anything that bothers me, good, bad or indifferent. I don't call him dad, I call him either God or Father, although Father is getting to be more common place for me in my walk with Him.
I wish Mike well, and hope he writes more such books.

apps & permissions

Hello Readers!
How are we today? I'm hanging in there. I have a gripe today. It's about the permissions that many apps require.
I know that many of us need apps. Their cute, and darned handy. But when it comes to permissions, it is downright ridiculous. Where's the privacy? I can see why some apps might need to know where I am, but they don't need to access my camera, contacts, email, microphone, and only God knows what else, there are so  many permissions that I forget which ones require which.
Look, my Bible apps don't require any special permissions. Many of my phone company apps do. But why does so many other apps require them? It's ridiculous! I know that part of it is so they can know what to advertise on my phone during the app, this by the way is even so on my Kindle Fire. I don't think many of them they need to know where I am; at the least they certainly don't need access to my contacts, camera, microphone, email, phone calls, etc.
Lighten up developers! I don't appreciate you invading my privacy. Yes I did have to give you permission, but then I do need the app. Is that a fair trade off? No it isn't. You are going into places that you actually have no business going. I don't have anything to hide, but I like my privacy. I don't appreciate developers adding so many permissions into the apps that we use.
I guess that's all for now on this subject.

Christmas stories and others

I just finished reading a book that had four (4) Christmas stories in it. Yep! It's March. So who cares? Christmas spirit is supposed to be for year round.
I like Christmas stories becasue they give one such hope. And that hope often helps to build faith, especially when miracles happen. If your hope doesn't materialize, then either you doubted in your heart or God had a better plan.

I also like Christian stories of different kinds, especially those which make you think. You can usually learn something from them. I also usually learn something about myself. I strive to be ever closer to Jesus day by day. For me, in anything, it's either all or nothing. I give it all and that is true for anything I put my hand to.

There are people who will say differently, but they're just naysayers. What they think is their business, but until they look inside my heart, they know nothing about me. Only God can rightly and justly judge a person.

May God bless and keep you all.

Back to square one, or two, or three...

Where do I go from here? Where is 'here' might be an even better question to be answered first. 'Here' is where I am today. I will continue to study the Bible and Theology, as well as for the A+ certification. I still have all the books I ordered, and there is a wonderful, free, Bible program called WORDsearch Basic. There are many free books as well as various translations of the Bible, although I personally prefer the KJV. There are plenty of videos, such as those by Chuck Missler among others, that teach the Bible, both from scientific and theological views.

I have always been fascinated by the Bible, and the many mysteries it holds. I have also always been interested in computers (among other things) and how they work. I have been involved with computers since 1989 when I first signed up for a basic programming course and ended up with GW-Basic. Soon, I moved to tinkering with fixing things when there wasn't anyone else to call upon and I also started stretching my wings to learn other languages, such as C and then C++.
Unfortunately, I moved back to WV, where some people, being the idiots they were/are, think women couldn't possibly be involved with computers and programming. After all, that's a man's forte. I have family who call me whenever they or their kids have computer problems. As a matter of a fact, I had one case where one of my grandsons accidentally ended up on a website and had the FBI ransomeware installed on his RCA tablet. By phone, with my daughter and her older son doing the physical work, I walked them through getting rid of that garbage. I had to search for the manual for the tablet, but I found it, thanks to Google. Yay!

Therefore, I will also start studying the material and taking tests to get myself back to par so that I can pass the 801and the 802 test. It almost feels as if I'm starting over again, but that is because I have been working mostly with laptops and/or tablets since that is what we all have. They are such fascinating things, aren't they?

On another, let's talk about scams. Especially those who prey on lonely, vulnerable people. I know someone who caught up in this type of scam. Personally i wish the person of the other end would just either drop dead, or get caught with enough evidence that they would go to jail without bail and have to stay in jail for a very long time. Frankly, I fail to see why the NSA, FBI or other acronym (no insult intended) can't put a stop to these scams. People lose a lot things; money, self-respect, they keep on hoping this person who claims to be a soul mate and who claims to love you so much, will hurry up and 'come home.' Look people, it ain't happening. They are after one thing, and one thing only. Money. Here's a link to tell you more about it. I wish people would just wake up, and look for red flags that what they are looking at is a scam.

I guess that's enough for now. Especially since I don't post on here much and haven't for a long time. Maybe I'll get back into it if I have time.
