BILL CHERRY [Realtor, In late 1950s Music ’til Dawn host on WWL-870] (Dallas, TX) Hi, Jim and Suzie — Walt (Hammock) really did lose everything, including his car. Apparently his house flooded almost to the ceiling and it is unlivable. He has rented a furnished house. He’s trying to get enough donations to help hem. Patty and I helped the best we can at the moment. The last I heard, it was about $10,000, but he was starting to wonder if it was an inadequate amount. Here’s the link to where contributions can be sent: https://www.gofundme.com/bwmas2-we-lost-everything-in-harvey Here’s his email address if you want to get the specific details. I know he’ll be thrilled if you mention his predicament and where friends can make donations. Whammock720@att.net

DENISE COOK [late Nick St John’s sister] (Dallas, TX) Subject: Archived news. Hi Jim I cannot thank you enough for all your hard work. You went way above and beyond what I could even expect from you. I’m grateful for your time and effort. I have added you to my prayer list and will be thinking of you as you try to maneuver through this awful time and regain your life. I have many friends that also suffered major losses but not the health situations. That seems like too much and unfair when you need all your strength to keep going. I am ever thankful and will treasure what you’ve sent me. All the best & healing, Denise

CHARLES GEORGE [kc5rai, ex KCHU FM] (Dallas, TX) Subject: Direction for Radio. I think that Radio will thrive as long as it does what Joe Albertsons believed, ” We do not need to be The Largest, but the Best”. Though companies often forget what the Founders taught, but if they were around they might not think the same as in the Past. Like I found a Sigma-Martin Guitar, I can play almost everything on it that I play on my Martin Guitar, plus might take it places, I would not take my Martin. Often talent is stifled by those with Vested Interests in the Industry. And if looking to making money would probably think the same. But being an Amateur Radio Operator and Amateur Musician not in the same league as others. Rumor has it that I have been seen playing my Soprano Recorder and at times my Mandolin at The West End.

TRIVIA ANSWER: On September 17, 1931 RCA Victor unveils its new invention, the 33 1/3 rpm long-playing or LP record, at the Savoy Plaza Hotel in New York.

WAYNE WARNER [Flower Pentecostal Heritage Center] (Springfield, MO) Jim, Where to find a decent girl to date? I’d recommend the church, but you’ve already described the possibilities there. A young great nephew has asked my sister to pray that he would find a good wife. He is about 22. My sister is in an assisted living in Oregon, my home state. My first wife was Joy, and she was a joy. She came to Eugene from Des Moines to attend a Bible college, and I saw her and fell hard. But it was almost 2 years before I got up enough courage to ask her out. We were married in 1958, had 3 daughters. But the most sorrowful time in my life came when a brain tumor developed and she died after surgery at age 38. My daughters grew up to be wonderful ladies. Pat and I have been married 23 years. We give God the glory for taking us through some difficult places and some very joyful places. God bless. He must have a nice lady for you. Wayne

SOCRATES (469 BC – 399 BC) By all means, marry. If you get a good wife, you’ll become happy; if you get a bad one, you’ll become a philosopher.

Today’s Inspiration Station With Rhonnie Scheuerman

Author: Dr. David Jeremiah from his book” God Loves You”

Before You Were Born, God Knew Your Destiny. Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations. Jeremiah:1:5I   –   *I formed you. *I knew you. *I sanctified You. *I ordained you.

 When the Lord told Jeremiah he was ordained to be a prophet to the nations, he might have wondered if God had really thought this thing though!   He began offering  reasons why he wasn’t qualified to fulfill the destiny God had for him.  ” Ah, Lord God!  Behold, I cannot speak for I am a youth” (Jeremiah 1:6)

But God knew exactly what He was doing.  As the call itself indicates, He had through it through quite thoroughly:   ” This is no spontaneous decision on My part, Jeremiah.  Don’t  you realize that I knew everything about you wile your mother was still carrying you? Don’t you realize I have had this destiny mapped out for you all along.”

God had; planned tor this moment; and with joy, He looked forward to the deep satisfaction of seeing His child put to use the gifts that were so lovingly reserved for him.  When  Jeremiah protested his youthful inexperience,   God reassured him: “I am with you to deliver you”( v.8).  He put His hand on Jeremiah’s lips and said, “Behold I have put My words in your mouth (v.9) .

Just as He did with Jeremiah, God treasures the moments in which He sees us growing into what He designed us to be and moving toward the destiny He has planned for us.  The same is true in human relationships.  John Ortberg  “If I love someone, it means I have certain hopes and intentions and wishes for them.  I’m in their corner.  I long for them to flourish and blossom .  I want them to realize all their potential.  I want them to become filled with virtue and moral beauty.”

The difference is that with God’s love, these treasures exist before we do.  He has reserved them for us from the very beginning .  Paul speaks of this eternal knowledge and love of God  when he writes to the Galatians  about his own calling.  He explains that God “separated  me from my mother’s womb and called me through His grace, to reveal His Son in me, that I might preach Him among the Gentiles” (Galatians   1:15-16a).

Just as God had a destiny for Jeremiah & for Paul He also has a destiny for each of us one that He designed before we were born

BREAST CANCER…THOSE TWO WORDS HAD TURNED MY ENTIRE WORLD UPSIDE DOWN

Even, now, after the mastectomy and reconstruction, and weeks of chemo, treatments, I felt alone, hopeless. I had grown up  in my church, going to church and leaning on my faith.  But where was God in all of this? “Here’s a little something to lift your spirits, ” my mother said when she visited one day before I started back to work.  She handed me a small gift bow.  Inside was a porcelain angel with her hand resting on her chin. “Thank you.  It’s lovely, “I said but I needed the assurance a porcelain peace couldn’t bring.

A couple of weeks later, when I returned to work, I noticed an unfamiliar object on my desk.  I moved closer…an angel made of resin.  I turned her over.  “Angel of Healing” was written on the bottom’.  The people I loved were trying to comfort me, even if God went silent. Then a package arrived from my niece.  “Serenity Angel” was inside.  And I wasn’t even an angel collector.  Why the theme”. I started to think maybe God was there for me after all, when a gift from another kind coworker arrived a beautiful Angel of hope candle holder.

A thought flickered in my mind, and finally I heard God say, “I am with you, always.”

Something I am reminded of every day, surrounded by my growing angel collection

Help Lord, I’m Freaking Out! When I am afraid, I will put my trust in You.

In God, whose word I praise, In God I have put my trust; I shall not be afraid. What can mere man do to me?

Fear is the untamed monster that rears its ugly head and compels otherwise peaceful people to react in ways contrary to their rational beliefs. Take for example a crowded room where someone shouts “fire!” Even in the absence of flame and smoke, people have a panic reaction and start bolting for the nearest exit. It’s natural to fear and sometimes even necessary. It’s when fear becomes our modus operandi that we begin to filter life events through a faulty method causing our decisions and reactions to run amuck.

God never intended for us to be dominated by fear; fear is the devil’s playground. How can we overcome the debilitating effects of fear gone wild? Psalm 56:3 offers an answer. When you are afraid: 1) Trust in the Lord: God’s sovereignty controls all that touches your life. You are not a victim of your world but rather a blood-bought child of God, a child of the Most High King. The same God whose eye is on the sparrow has set His eyes on you. (Matthew 10:29-31). 2) Worship the Lord:Praising God in worship dispels the darkness, refocusing your spirit and mind on the kindness of the Savior. (Isaiah 12:2). 3) Rejoice in the Lord: The Psalmist asks, “What can mere man do to me?” You are not bound by the constraints of man. You have been redeemed and made a conqueror; and not just an ordinary conqueror but more than a conqueror in the Name of Jesus Christ.  (Romans 8:37).

Don’t let the fear of man, the shift in culture or the instability of world events freak you out! When you are tempted to fear, to doubt the goodness and sovereignty of God, remember Paul’s encouragement to the church; “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.” (Romans 8:38-39).

Prayer Heavenly Father,

when I am afraid I will place my trust in You.

You hold my future in Your hands and in You I find refuge and hope.

Thank You for Your Son, Jesus Christ in Whose Name I pray and am secure, Amen.

The Bible

Last Summer While I Was Taking Drawing Lessons My Friend Betty Learned She Had Cancer

The day before she went to the hospital   for surgery, her spirit  seemed nearly depleted. “what am I going to do!”she said thinking about the demanding week ahead of her. “How will I find the strength?” That evening I found myself doodling on my drawing board thinking of Betty.  Soon I was sketching a loaf of bread.  A simple homemade loaf.  Then I put it aside and went to bed.  But during the night I had the most curious dream . Betty was siting at a table before a loaf of bread eating a single piece.

The next morning when I came upon my drawing, an idea began to stir in my thoughts.   I reached for the Bible  I will rain down bread from heaven” (Exodus 16-4 and found the verse, remembering that  God sent nourishment from heaven   while his people wandered  in the wilderness.  There was always just enough for each  day.  They simply had to trust him for tomorrow’s.

I penciled the verse beneath the sketch of bread and carried it to Betty’s  hospital room.  It was to face what comes our way and reminds us both….when we walk in difficult places, God sends the strength  and nourishment  to face what comes our way, not all at once, but day by day..

WAYNE WARNER [Flower Pentecostal Heritage Center] (Springfield, MO) Subject: Jim Rose Remembers Radio (#1649) September 08, 2017 [Friday] Jim, I hope you are in better shape, storm-wise, than you were last week. Your experience being lost and winding up in the hospital was horrible. We hear so many stories about the tragedy that it is hard to believe. Now it appears that Florida might be hit. A TV note from Springfield. Gray Television bought two stations here a couple of years ago. They operated in the same building and used the same broadcasting system. Two weeks ago word broke that they were laying off 12 employees, camera people, weatherman, etc., including a news anchor I know. It was a shock here but just another example of big corporations taking over and eliminating jobs of longtime, and higher salaried, employees. The news anchor is an army veteran and attends the monthly Veterans Connection breakfast I direct. Nice guy. When he was 40, he gave up an anchor position and joined the army. He served 5 years as a medic. f you want more info, I can furnish it because I want to make certain it is accurate. Best wishes and God’s blessing on you. Wayne Warner

JIM BELL [KUHF FM 88.7 Morning Edition anchor since 1997-retires 2010] (Lufkin, TX) After A&A (Amos and Andy) was taken off the air in 1955 Amanda moved uptown for another “house-maid” role in the Danny Thomas Show, Make Room For Daddy, which ran until 1965. Her “family maid” job may have been what we today call a “subservient” role, but Randolph ran Danny’s household like a drill sergeant. I’ve read that was exactly the way Thomas wanted her to play it. He wanted her commanding personality to drive her character. That’s the kind of guy he was. Jim Bell – High, Dry and retired in Lufkin

She did work in accounting at The Dallas Morning News. Her daughter Carolyn called to tell me of her passing. I find often we only hear about the Bad in Life, but then Christ said to give your Alms in Secret. I recently bought an album by Jimmy Witherspoon, it had T-Bone Walker on it as a band member. I thought how much a Great Person does not need to talk about being Great, unlike some Radio/TV Hosts and Politicians.

It is for freedom that Christ has set us free…Galatians 5:1  The Bible

Author…Sam Adriance: My grandmother Gaia fell at Emily’s and my wedding rehearsal dinner.  The X-ray showed Gaia’s pelvis was cracked, but she wouldn’t require surgery, just a stay in rehab for a while.

Gaia is one of the most amazing women I have ever met.  She never liked receiving help, always cherishing her independence and freedom.  She  and my Dad fought every summer as he tried to hold her arm when she walked along treacherous Maine beaches.  So how would she cope now?

You can imagine my surprise when I saw her one month later with her new walker and letting my dad guide her, but smiling as brightly as ever.  She told me that her rehab was going well, and she looked better than I had anticipated. “I have learned so much,” she said.  “Your father and I have fought these last few weeks.  But I’m staring to learn that I can’t do everything myself anymore, and I’m letting him take over for me.  And you know what? The more I let him take over and trust him, the more free I feel.”

….I know dear Lord, that we are only free when we submit ourselves to something higher- to  YOU.  Sam Adriance

Create in me a new clean heart, O GOD

Filled with clean thoughts and right desires. psalm 51:10

Jesus025

Author:  Dianne Neal Matthews My daughter Recently got inspired by the “40 Bags in 40 days De cluttering Challenge,” which encourages people to inspect one area of their home at a time, removing at least one bag of unnecessary stuff from each space.  One logger has completed the challenge  as well annually since 2011 and claims that it has “changed my life forever,”as well as the lives of thousands of other people.

I’ve only seen the TV show Hoarders twice because I find it hard to watch.  In both episodes, forty bags would barely make a dent.  It’s hard to understand how anyone to let his or her home get so crammed with junk that it’s difficult to even walk through a room.  But once these people get help clearing out their houses, their demeanor and attitude toward life seems transformed.

Clutter can be a problem in an emotional and  spiritual sense too.  I may allow my life to be filled with harmful habits or destructive relationship.  My heart and mind can get crammed with worries, doubt, fear, or immoral thoughts and desires.

Wouldn’t it be great if we could lug bags of jealousy and it’s not that simple, but greed, anger, and the like to the curb to be picked up? Obviously it’s not that simple, but Jesus wants to help us clear the undesirables out of our hearts and minds.  We just need to invite Him to show  us what has to go and then depend on His power day by day to keep from allowing it back in Jesus challenges us to a de cluttering that is truly life changing.

Faith Step:  What is a command of Jesus’ that he has put on your  heart to do?

Find a way to obey that command and love Him today!

Ever since our first visit, my husband, Jerry and I had dreamed of living in Hawaii

Now we are  finally going to do it, and I’d booked a airfare with a connecting flight.  I was thrilled to be going to scout out real estate- until I saw the tinny Cessna plane we’d take from, Maui to the big Island.  Attendants had weighed everyone and their baggage to make sure the plane would be balanced. “You can do this,” Jerry said as we took our seats among the other passengers.  “I’ts only thirty minutes.  “Then I saw the pilot. A man next to me murmured , “He doesn’t  look old enough to drive a car , much less a plane.”

“We’ll bounce a bit in the wind until we get up to ten thousand feet ,” The pilot cheerfully announced . “Buckler  up.”

We bumped, jerked and rocked through the sky.  My heart pounded.  Jerry gripped my hand, but that wasn’t enough. Pray ! I thought.  But I was too scared.  I couldn’t think of what to say.  I whispered the only words that came to mind.  “Our Father who art in heaven…”  Slow and steady, visualizing each phrase, lingering over every word, I recited the prayer over and over, from beginning to end, keeping my eyes shut all the way. We touched down and I stumbled off the plane on shaky legs.  Jerry and I spent a week looking at properties.  Then I had to board that tiny plane again.  I buckled in ,and waited for the panic.   But it didn’t come.  I knew how to keep myself calm now.  “Our Father who art in heaven…”

Jerry and I are now settled in Hawaii .  Occasionally  I ride that Cessna from Maui .

Luckily  it’ is a short flight.  Only 35 Our Fathers.

Author Ruth Bell Graham: The Fools

“THE FOOL says in his heart “There is no God.””This designation goes for those who doubt God’s   sovereignty  as well as those that  deny him. Either he is sovereign, or He is not God. Therefore when we become so preoccupied with and dismayed by circumstances and certain people that we doubt God’s ability to Handel  things in His own way, and in His own time, then we, too are fools.
