A4 THE JOURNAL, Thursday, September 15, 2016 It is 5:40 am on a Tuesday in Stillwater. Time to put out the trash. I finally slept last night after a stressful start to yesterday. I looked back on some memories on Facebook and found I had been in this place before. Last year the car had a first big problem and it was towed out to Ford Company. It was the “electronic brain.” That was scary. Statements like... “The Epidural should be working.”.... - The dentist says “This will just be a tiny stick.” When your insurance agent says, “I’m sorry, you did not add this to your policy.” The day you hear this at the tag agency, “There is no facial recognition for you. Let’s redo your photo and do not smile,” go into my red flag moments file. This has been another adventure with Job from the Bible kind of year. Who ever said that good people do not have tragic things happen to them needs to step into my shoes for awhile. History does often repeat itself in our lives. We do not have to like it. Last year a good friend died from ALS and recently another special friend from ALS. I was very ill last year and now am experiencing severe breathing problems, again. Sunday, I was home watching some of the 911 stories before and after Sunday School and Church as the names were read....I remembered like it was yesterday. I have a friend from church who was near there when it happened. You never forget where you were or the devastation it brought to innocent people. So many children without parents after that day. I am glad that they also do stories about how the survivors not only find the strength to live but follow their dreams. The most poignant love story was on face book. The final cell phone moments as a wife talks with her husband. He can find no way down and smoke is filling the area. They focus on their love, life and what is important. He wants her to live. It Was one of the most powerful and tearful moments of my life. My soul ached for this couple who would not be able to live out their dreams. His words became fewer as breathing became more difficult and then the quiet before the building began to collapse. Later, she used her life for things positive and healing; still hearing his voice and holding his last Words to her heart. Violence will come again. People will believe they have the right to take lives....just because they can. There was a recent plarmed bomb attack that was stopped in Paris. Deja Vu! Nations bomb each other. Under ground nuclear testing still goes, on. Children are sold into prostitution. Tidal waves pound the shores of the world and floods destroy homes while taking lives. The rumble of ancient volcanoes echo across the world. Scams go on in the business world. There are very deadly and ancient diseases appearing again. It is an election year .and the words often used on television by candidates are not good images for our young people. We am studying the Book of Revelations on Wednesday night at UHBC. We also have our meal before study groups. It is a great time of fellowship and laughter. I am so grateful that this beautiful time is made possible for us by “servant hands and hearts.” For all of us there will be trials and tribulations. Satan is very busy tearing at the hearts of all with visions of power, sex, and money. What we don’t think about is that he comes packaged in attractive ways. We can choose to let go of things that are not healthy. We can choose wisely our friends. We can pray for those who are c.aught_up in addictions. We have the right to be happy and joyous, to grieve and serve. We can with God’s help change the path of Deja Vu. mmr- , W" Thursday. at Wsmtahingcaltcgand , Beard ' lNews~Star (Wyatt-«2411 I59773439 . atomeom' ....:......puarstar@ipflinaiaamm ...vemiinfifeheti@grnail.cam unsportstéiouinaiokmm ' ......pattiweaverfé’éritdbluenet feteonterrtand any '* once notified. . .7 TO SUBSCRIBE BY MAIL, just fill out this form, include your payment, and mail to: THE ioukNAL I P.O.

They bless our lives and allow us to live more comfortably, but there is a down side. Here is a new word for you that is especially appropriate for the world we live in today. It is the German word, ver- schlimmbesserung, and it means improvement that makes things worse. Have’ you thought about anything like that lately? Take cell phones for instance, PLEASE! It seems that most people today simply cannot bear to go more than a few seconds without talking to somebody. Not wanting to be the only person on earth who is totally out of sink with the society I live in, I have been known to walk through busy places with my thumb and fingers up to my ear as if I ’m talking to someone on a cell phone, and I recently watched an inventor offer his fake cell phone for that purpose. I do now have a cheap cell phone, but it is never turned on unless I need to call someone in an emergency. I got it after being stranded alone on Sooner Lake when my boat motor quit on me. Opinions f And, wouldn’t it be wonderful if you could actually talk to some live person, when you need help with some 3 product? Think for a moment about What it would be like '- if Gdd decided to install voice mail. Imagine praying and hearing the following. “For English press 1. Press 27for thanksgiving.
