ONE PURPOSE / ONE INTEREST

Just watching some of the TV Emmy show presentation , the usual self flatulating ( is that a word ? flatulating ) lol --- slapping each other on the back for their work ---

Note from Mr. Webster of the Webster's dictionary: I think I know what you meant to say, passing-thru, but this word is not what you should use. Perhaps you meant self-aggrandizement or self-promotion. Check out my dictionary if you want the definition of flatulation. Thanks! ~ Mr. Webster

I want to look forward to the time when the Great God of the Universe says to me, enter in , thou good and faithful servant, but I suspect it will be me saying - What a GOD , WHAT A CHRIST, WHAT A GIFT and wish I had been a better servant --
They showed pictures of stars, directors and notables that have passed away --a kind courtesy -- one was missing , my dad. He was promoted to glory 2 years ago this October, they would have liked my dad if they had met him. He was a rather one dimensional man, U see, since he was saved, he had only one interest, The Love of God . He shared with Everyone about the need to be "saved" - no gray area , we are lost and need The Saviour.
He wore a jacket with the name of Jesus across the back, a cap with the name of Jesus on it.He was looked at "oddly" many a time -- it was the "least" he could do for His Lord. He handed out tracts all the time, prayed for us, his children , every single morning. He would awake at 4 am and pray for us individually , faithfully he did this for us for the 40 years since being saved --

The people at the Emmy Show would have liked my dad.

Oh Passing-thru...I so would of liked to have met your dad!
He sounds like a guy after my own heart!
I just wonder how many people in heaven that he met when he was promoted to glory two years ago..people that had been saved because of his faithfullness...
I don't think you should feel that way about your hearing Jesus saying. "Well done thou good and faithful servant" because He tells us that is what He is GOING to say.
I just bet He said that to your dad!!
Oh your mom must miss him so much and you must too!

1 Peter 2:9
But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light;
1 Peter 2:8-10

I feel sorry for the movie stars.
Most of them have no hope.
When John Wayne was dying the only "clergy" that he wanted in his room was Billy Graham.

I, too, am sure I would have liked your dad! No, Loved your dad! :)

I never watch those types of shows because it depresses me to see so many who desire no hope. *shakes head*

I trust you all have had a grand weekend! I am so looking forward to tomorrow just because our temps should be in the 70ยบ's. A perfect day to clean out our garage and maybe my extra refrig too!

Hopefully, we will hear from the doctor's office bright and early so we can know what is going on with Pilot Dad! When I know, you will know!

YES TERRY AND CLAIRE -- U "GUYS" WOULD HAVE LOVED THIS GENTLE SOUL -Before salvation came to him, he was abit hard ,but how the Lord softened and made him so gentle and humble -- the nurses at the hospital in his last month "here" said how they "loved" him so -- a "white" haired (what was left of the hair) hobbling around on bad knees -- always praying and witnessing -- YES CLAIRE , A GOOD DAY FOR U MONDAY, LETS PRAY -- TERRY , thx for that verse, I love that verse ---
