Today’s Inspiration Station With Rhonnie Scheuerman
Share Your Life – All the believers were one in heart and mind.
No one claimed that any of his possessions was his own,
but they shared everything they had. Acts 4:32
When you read the story of the New Testament Church, you tend to get caught up in its explosive growth and amazing miracles. But here’s a component you shouldn’t miss: ‘No one claimed that any of his possessions was his own, but they shared everything they had…There were no needy persons among them…those who owned lands or houses sold them, brought the money…and it was distributed to anyone as he had need’ (vv. 32-35). You say, ‘If I just had more money I’d be happy.’ You might feel more secure and have fewer worries, but you wouldn’t necessarily be happier. In the Journal of Happiness Studies, researchers looked at what distinguished quite happy people from less happy people. One factor consistently separated those two groups. It’s not about how much money you have; it’s not about your health, security, attractiveness, IQ, or career success.
What distinguishes consistently happy people from less happy people is the presence of rich, deep, joy-producing, life-changing, meaningful relationships. Social researcher Robert Putnam writes: ‘The single most common finding from a half-century’s research on life satisfaction, not only in the U.S. but around the world, is that happiness is best predicted by the breadth and depth of one’s social connections.’ But you can know a lot of people without really being known by any of them, and end up lonely.
Those folks in the New Testament Church got it right: it’s in sharing with one another spiritually, emotionally, financially, and relationally that you achieve your highest level of joy.
Prayer Heavenly Father,
thank You for putting into my life people I am able to share life with.
People who know You. In Jesus’ Name, Amen

JACK PARNELL [former Program Director/DJ on WHBQ-560] (Memphis, TN) Subject: Glen Campbell. I’ve heard that about Glen…everybody who ever met him had the same things to say about him. I’m kinda surprised that he didn’t “drop by” WHBQ, but by that time, he was probably so busy that he didn’t have time. When WHBQ was in the Chisca Hotel, we had visitors often. You probably had visits during the late 50s and early 60s from Willie Nelson, who was “only” a songwriter then. He had written “Hello Walls” that Faron Young had a big hit with…both pop and country. In about 1963, he wrote “Funny How Time Slips Away”, which was also a huge hit. When he traveled, back then, he put on his 3 piece pin-striped suit, sported a ducktail haircut, very shiny shoes, and loved to take DJs out to lunch/dinner. He traveled often with a record promoter named Joe Saad, who was also from Texas, and he too was a great promoter. I think he worked for a huge label just over in AR that had many hits. It was Liberty Records, and was later bought by a big label in L.A.

JIM BELL [KUHF FM 88.7 Morning Edition anchor since 1997-retires 2010] (Lufkin, TX) I was KIKK’s outside news reporter in the late 60s when it was still in Pasadena, and I can testify that Leroy Gloger was the most generous employer I ever worked for. He shared his success with the people who made it happen. Every month with more than 100 thousand dollars in advertising we got a 100 dollar bill and our paycheck in our pay envelope. He gave me a 200 dollar a month outside gasoline allowance and a company credit card that let me put that 200 dollar allowance in the bank. The morning newscaster, Milton Allen Graves, one of the nicest guys in the world, was trying to save money to buy a house. One morning he found an envelope in his mail cubby with a check for 5000 dollars signed by Leroy Gloger, who told Milton it was a gift to show his appreciation for his great work.

JAY WEAVER [KLBK – 1360, Lubbock; KBUY – 1540, Fort Worth]; Several Other Places] (DFW-Hurst, TX)Subject: Radio Short Stories. Hi Jim – Awhile back , you sent out a note asking for a few “Short Stories” that we might have to share with you for your readers on “Jim Rose Remembers Radio”. I remembered this one. Hope it’s what you have in mind. The first station I worked at was KPOS – Post, Texas. The station studios were located on the main drag. Top 40, daytimer. The first day I went to work, I went “on air” and started my play list. The number one song was “Pretty Woman” by Roy Orbison. I looked for the record. No record! The station owner was standing in the studio. I told him. He said, “Just a minute!” He ran out the door and in ten minutes returned with “Pretty Woman”. I asked him where the record was and he told me “At Woolworths, down the street!”

This Year Ask God for His Plan!
God says, ‘I know the plans I have for you…plans to prosper you…
plans to give you hope and a future…pray to me, and I will listen to you’ (vv. 11-12)
This year ask God for His plan. It’s miserable playing a part for which you’re ill-suited. It’s like walking in shoes that don’t fit. So…what are you good at? What do you enjoy doing most? What accomplishments make you feel best? List five moments in your life when you were acutely aware of this feeling of fulfilment. Does this reveal anything about your purpose? If money wasn’t a consideration, how would you fill your days? How does this compare with where you are now? What one small step can you take right now – one phone call made, one letter written, one email sent – to move you towards your true calling? What have you learned about your purpose through failure? Are some areas clearly not a part of your calling at all? Who do you admire for the way they’ve applied their talents? Why are you like them? What can you learn from them? How would you describe your vision for your life this year? Or five years from now? Or ten? Who are the people in your life who really get who you are? Have you asked them what they think your purpose might be? Have they given any indication of how they think you should use your talents? If you could write your own obituary, what would you want it to say? What would you like to be remembered for? As you begin the New Year, ask God for His plan.
Prayer Heavenly Father,
I want to start this year right – doing what it is that You would have me do.
In Jesus’ Name, Amen

Thought’s Of A Middle Aged Man Part 3
Boers left their horses in the valley while British guns blasted many to smithereens
“See that hill over there”,pointing to Wagon Hill looming up in front of us. “That’s where General De Villiers attacked the Engelsmanne in 1900.” He told us of the attack and how the British lost over a hundred and seventy men and that more than fifty Boers were left on the battlefield once they retreated back down the hill. He told us how the Boers had left their horses in the valley where we were camped and how the British guns had concentrated fire on them and blasted a good many to smithereens. The rest of the injured beasts had galloped away in all directions, many cracking limbs on the rocks and Acacia scrub. “On a night like this” he said,” If you are very still and very quiet, you can still hear the sounds of galloping hooves and neighing horses. They are the ghosts of Waggon Hill.” and with that the lieutenant bid us farewell. We climbed into our sleeping bags, not one of us sleeping, but all just staring into the darkness straining our ears for the sounds of horses. Jackson, who was standing watch saw a dark shadow and shouted ” Who’s there!”
It was then that all hell broke loose. Flashes of light and explosions going off all around us. Not only us but all the other sections too. The sky was illuminated by strange bright lights that seemed to float in the sky. Smoke made visibility poor. There was screaming and mayhem and that’s when I saw Dali in the bush hat. He had three rifles over his shoulder and was shouting at the top of his voice “you must look after your girlfriend in the bush otherwise I will take her from you”. In all the confusion, it began to rain. Soon it was bucketing down so hard that the shouting became faint echoes and the ground became a quagmire of mud. Lightning was crashing all around us and the ironstone rocks reflected their light. The rank retreated to the comfort of their tents back at the shooting range.
The ‘attack’ was over and all that remained for us was to scrape our possessions together, stuff them into our grootsak’s and scramble to some form of shelter. We climbed the dark hill, slipping and sliding and found an old ruin made of sandbags. There were others there already and they were just as sorry as us. We all crowded up to each other, draping a muddy ground sheet over us while trying to put on our poncho’s. We looked like drowned rats clinging on to each other. One or two guys were trying to light a cigarette with a wet lighter while others had only just discovered that they were missing their rifles.
As the rain turned to drizzle, the lightning slowly marched off down the valley until it was a slight flicker on the horizon. The drizzle stopped and the sun slowly drew up over the distant hills. When the warm light touched my cheeks, I looked around to see guys lying all around, a sorry sight of boys that had almost been broken. As I looked around I realised that we had taken shelter in an old sanger that had been built by the British to defend Wagon Hill against attack by the Boers.

WOLFING down a peanut butter sandwich as I drove to a meeting across town was not my idea of the ideal lunch. But that’s the way it has been these days. Just when I thought work at the television station couldn’t get much busier it could. We had a couple of big documentaries to produce and the deadline were looming , in the not-so-distant future we needed to produce in two weeks. My stress level was mounting just thinking about it.
Impatient at the red light that seemed to be taking an awfully long time to turn green. I reached over and turned on the radio. It was turned to a station, II rarely listened to, because I never liked its choice of music. This time though it was playing relaxing tune with an uplifting beat and a hint of Jazz.. I listened feeling my body unwinding a bit and my grip on the steering whale easing. The next song was just as good, and so were the two after that. By the time I arrived at my meeting, I’d heard five of the best songs I’s ever heard on that station. I got out of my car with a smile on my face and a swing in my step.
Some might say that hearing those songs was a coincidence, but I know better. So I’ll just say a thank-you to God for being there at the right place and the right time, and turning me into His peace
But time and chance happen to them all. – Ecclesiastes 9:11
