Author Ruth Bell Graham: The Fools

jesus041

“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.

THE EAGLES SUE HOTEL CALIFORNIA Hotel California is the title track of the Eagles 1976 album. It wins the 1977 Grammy award for record of the year. When it opens in 1950, the Todos Santos hotel in Baja California Sur name is Hotel California, but it goes through a series of name changes, until a Canadian couple, John and Debbie Stewart, buy it in 2001, and begin to use its original name in ads. The Eagles claim owners of the Todos Santos hotel actively encourage guests to believe the hotel is associated with The Eagles.

JIM BELL [KUHF FM 88.7 Morning Edition anchor since 1997-retires 2010] (Lufkin, TX) Subject: Jeopardy Trivia. Hey Jim, here’s a tiny tidbit of factoid trivia about Jeopardy. For years, from 1964 thru 1973, Don Pardo introduced the host with “Now, here’s the STAR of Jeopardy, Art FLEMING! The show took a break after 1973, but Merv Griffin revived it in 1984 with Alex Trebek and announcer Johnny Gilbert. Trebek didn’t like being called the “Star” of the show because he felt the contestants are the real “stars”. He insisted that he be introduced simply as the “Host”. He got his wish and that’s the way it is. Jim Bell, who came very close to being a contestant on Jeopardy back in the 90s.

BEN HAROLD [ex KXOL-1360/KBUY-1540/WBAP-820/KENR-1070] (Knoxville, TN) I can’t believe Weaver popped his ugly face in with that correction about WBAP’s /KSCS city of license. it “kind of” ticked me off because I did PM drive news for Don Day right after KBUY went silent. I’ll never forget that place. Harold Taft taught me how to read the “green screen” radar. I learned the hard way on another issue: NEVER CHANGE ONE WORD in a Harold Taft forecast. I was running out of time, so I “abbreviated” it a little. ever see a 5 or so foot mild mannered guy turn into a 12 foot monster with hair all over his body? I swear he NEVER even turned the knob to the news anchor booth, LOL! your friend, Ben

JAY WEAVER [ex KLBK–1360 Lubbock; KBUY–1540 Fort Worth] (DFW-Hurst, TX) Subject: WBAP Radio. I know, Jim – it just get tired of Dallas this and Dallas that. Fort Worth is HERE! That’s not to say I want Fort Worth to have ALL of the attention because lately the attention Dallas is getting is not that good at all. You may not understand, but all Fort Worth is anymore is the “FW” behind the “D” in Radio and TV land, which may really the best to be! By now you probably know my wife, Rhonda – she was born and raised in Dallas. We live in Hurst, just west of the Airport. When we go anywhere anymore we go west to Fort Worth. She can’t stand to go to Dallas – nor me. Just a few thoughts between you and me. Jay

TRIVIA ANSWER: On May 16, 1925 WHAS-840 Louisville, KY originates the first network broadcast of the Kentucky Derby.

CHARLES GEORGE [KC5RAI, ex KCHU FM] (Dallas, TX) Subject: Outlaw Country. I thought it was interesting when KAMC 94.9 started doing Outlaw Country. They started doing it I think before KAFM 92.5. But I have noticed in the Arts and other fields Innovators do not always het recognition. But maybe good at times. Like in college, at ETSU, a Manager of a Pizza place said if I could write a poem about Pizza for him he would give me free Pizza. Me being low on cash wrote a ballad about coming into town hungry… The best Giant Pizza that I ever had to eat. I thought back then I would be another Folk Musician. They say they neon lights are bright on Broadway. 73, Charles George

Today’s Inspiration Station With Rhonnie Scheuerman

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.

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..

Rejoice: Author George Eliot

Jesus031

Oh, the comfort, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person; having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but to pour them all out, just as they are chaff and grain together, Knowing that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then, with the breath of kindness, blow the rest away

Reflect : Do you have such a friend?  Are you such a friend?

When I was doing AM drive news for 1230 KNUZ, I’d work occasional fill-in morning news for KQUE-FM. Webb had a great personality (and voice). He ALWAYS always wore “his” uniform to work daily, a one-piece front zip overhaul with white socks. He ate his homemade lunch from a sturdy metal lunchbox, probably drank homemade coffee from the inside thermos and cup. If you didn’t know better, you’d think he was a factory worker.

JAY WEAVER [KLBK–1360 Lubbock; KBUY–1540 Fort Worth] (DFW-Hurst, TX) Subject: WBAP Radio. Jim, not trying to be picky but just a small correction. In your “Jim Rose Remembers Radio” #1614 for May 8, you mention WBAP celebrating 90 years of broadcasting and wrote that it is “WBAP, Dallas”. Well WBAP is licensed to the City of Fort Worth and has been for 90 years with towers location in Mansfield, TX. Again, not trying to be picky, but both WBAP and KSCS-FM along with KXAS-TV are all licensed to Fort Worth, TX. WBAP and KSCS-FM Studios are in Dallas at Victory Park and KXAS-TV Studios are located in Fort Worth just south of the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport and close to the “D-FW Population Center” on the grounds of the old Amon Carter Airport. Only the towers for all three remain on Broadcast Hill in east Fort Worth at Oakland Blvd. and I-30, Tom Landry Freeway. Jay

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.

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

DAVID HOUSE [Former Ft. Worth Star-Telegram Senior Editor] (Ft. Worth-North Richland Hills, TX)Subject: Carolyn Babin passed away. Jim, I received sad news that Carolyn Babin passed away Thursday, May 4. Thought you and your readers would want to know. Many may remember her. I understand that, at her request, there will be no funeral. She was a charming pistol. Very pretty, smart and vivacious. She was with stations in the Houston, Texas, and Shreveport, La., markets for many years before she retired in 1978. She left KCIJ in Shreveport in 1954 to work briefly in New Mexico then moved to Baytown, Texas, where she managed KRCT, then back to Shreveport and KCIJ then to KENT and KEEL there. She was Faron Young’s fiancé 1950-51. Broke off that ill-starred relationship then dated the Louisiana Hayride’s Tommy Trent for a while. Dated Elvis 1955-56 and was good friends with many country stars before marrying her husband, Frances. Carolyn and Frances have resided in Waskom, Texas, for many years. She was a friend of my mother’s (Jewell House) and was a great help as I researched mother’s career in country music to pull together http://www.jewellhousetribute.com. God grant Carolyn rest and joy. David House – Freelance Writer Member: SPJ, SPJFW

TRIVIA ANSWER: The Breakfast Club is a long-run morning variety show on NBC Blue Network/ABC radio (and briefly on television) originating in Chicago, IL with host Don McNeill from June 23, 1933 through December 27, 1968. McNeil’s 35½-year run as host remains the longest tenure for an M.C. of a network entertainment program, that surpasses Johnny Carson (29½ years) on The Tonight Show and Bob Barker (34⅔ years) on The Price is Right.

JASON WAYNE [ex KNOW-1490] (San Antonio, TX) Very interesting information as I am sure those were exciting days at KPCN (730). Any word about Bill Mack and health issues as I must think he might be close to 80 ? Maybe ? I was also wondering if you ever hear from Web Hunt, a long-timer at KQUE-FM, who did overnights until the format change to Mexican? KQUE-FM was a great station I enjoyed listening to I can only recall a few names from that time period…like Paul Berlin, Gary Hoffman, Mike Marshall, and afternoons with “Gary & Cindy”. I talked many times with Web Hunt until we lost contact after the format change, maybe some 20 years ago?

Today’s Inspiration Station With Rhonnie Scheuerman

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
