ALWAYS TRUST GOD… even when you Can’t SEE the WHY?

FOOD for T H O U G H T …

A King had a male servant who, in all circumstances always said to him;

My king, do not be discouraged…
because everything God does is perfect, no mistakes.

One day, they went hunting and a wild animal attacked the king,
the servant managed to kill the animal but couldn’t prevent his majesty from losing a finger.

Furious and without showing gratitude,
the King said; if God was good, I would not have been attacked and lost one finger.

The servant replied ‘despite all these things, I can only tell you that God is
good and everything He does is perfect, He is never wrong’.

Outraged by the response, the king ordered the arrest of his servant.

While being taken to prison, he told the king again, God is Good & Perfect.

Another day, the king left alone for another hunt and was captured by savages
who use human beings for sacrifice.

On the altar,
the savages found out that the king didn’t have one finger in place,
he was released because he was considered not “complete” to be offered to the Gods!

On his return to the
He ordered the release of his servant and said;

My friend, God was really good to me.
I was almost killed but for lack of a single finger. I was let go.

But I have a question;
If God is so good, why did He allow me to put you in prison?

His servant replied;
My king, if I had not been put in prison,
I would have gone with you,
and would have been sacrificed,
because I have no missing finger.

Even when we DON’T KNOW…HE D O E S !

Everything God does is perfect, He is never wrong.

Often we complain about life, and the negative thinking in us
kills the positivity in us…so think positive and trust God at every moment….

God knows why he choose you to read this message today…
Please Bless someone with it by sharing it.
God is good and perfect!!



Things that the PRESS should Report…

When will we Listen to those that serve us…
Not to those that have vested interest…
or those that want to divide us and destroy AMERICA

HERE’S a story that wasn’t in the NEWS then or NOW
Yet these unsung  Heros  did what was Necessary…
to Keep others from HARMS WAY

GOD BLESS them Everyone ,  AMEN


I didn’t know this about 9-11
AFTER FLIGHT 77 hit the Pentagon on 9/11, the following incident occurred:
A chaplain, who happened to be assigned to the Pentagon, told of an incident
that never made the news
A daycare facility inside the Pentagon had many children, including infants who were in heavy cribs. The daycare supervisor, looking at all the children they needed to evacuate, was in a panic over what they could do.

There were many children, mostly toddlers, as well as the infants that
would need to be taken out with the cribs.
There was no time to try to bundle them into carriers and strollers.Just then a young Marine came running into the center and asked what they needed… After hearing what the center director was trying to do,
he ran back out into the hallway and disappeared.
The director thought, “Well, here we are, on our own.

About 2 minutes later, that Marine returned with 40 other Marines in tow.
Each of them grabbed a crib with a child, and the rest started gathering up toddlers. The director and her staff then helped them take all the children out of the center and down toward the park near the Potomac.Once they got about 3/4 of a mile outside the building, the Marines stopped in the park, and then did a fabulous thing – they formed a circle with the cribs, which were quite sturdy and heavy, like the covered wagons in the Old West.
Inside this circle of cribs, they put the toddlers, to keep them from wandering off.

Outside this circle were the 40 Marines, forming a perimeter around the children and waiting for instructions. There they remained until the parents could be notified and come get their children.

The chaplain then said, “I don’t think any of us saw nor heard of this on any of the news stories of the day.
It was an incredible story of our men there.” There wasn’t a dry eye in the room. The thought of those Marines and what they did and how fast they reacted; could we expect any less from them?
It was one of the most touching stories from the Pentagon.

It’s the Military, not the politicians that ensures our right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

It’s the Military who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag.

If you care to offer the smallest token of recognition and appreciation for the military, please pass this on and pray for our men and women, who have served and are currently serving our country, and pray for those who have given the ultimate sacrifice for freedom.

Every generation MUST earn their FREEDOM… Thanks G I



PS… Proud to be a MARINE Veteran… How about you?

A jobless man applied for the position of ‘office boy’ at Microsoft.

The HR manager interviewed him, then gave him a test: clean the floor. The man passed the test with flying colors.

“You are hired,” HR manager informed the applicant, “give me your e-mail address, and I’ll send you the application for employment, as well as the date you should report for work.

The man replied ” I don’t have a computer, or an email!”

“I’m sorry,” said the HR manager. “If you don’t have an email, that means you do not exist. And we cannot hire persons who do not exist.”

The man was very disappointed.

He didn’t know what to do. He only had $10 with him. Once that is spent, he won’t have any money to buy any food.

He went to the supermarket and bought a crate of tomatoes with his $10.

He went from door to door and sold the tomatoes in less than two hours. He doubled his money.

He repeated the operation three times, and returned home with $60. He realized that he can survive
this way. He started to go everyday earlier, and return late.

He doubled or tripled his money every day. Soon, he bought a cart, then a truck. In a very short time, he had his own fleet of delivery vehicles.

Five years later, the man became one of the biggest food retailers in the U. S. He started to plan his family’s future, and decided to have a life insurance.

He called an insurance broker, and chose a protection plan.

At the end of the conversation, the broker asked him for his email address.

The man replied: ‘ I don’t have an email.’

The broker was dumbfounded. “You don’t have an email, and yet have succeeded in building an empire. Can you imagine what you could have been if you had an email?,” he exclaimed.

The man thought for a while, and replied, “an office boy at Microsoft!”

We had survived Whipple Surgery, Chemo, Radiation Treatment,  and More Chemo…WHEW !

Suddenly the Dragon comes again…my tumor counts Go Up again… Doubling and Doubling and Doubling Again!

NOT  What we wanted to Hear…
The doctors can’t find anything..
The Cancer it’s not behaving Like it should…
WE can’t Find Anything  …
MAN it’s time for PRAYER.
Remember are friends  JOB,  Elijah, and Daniel…
they were tested before they got their answer.

So as I am trying to get my mind Right…

About Looking at a Shot-Gun Chemo Treatment…

One of my top molars breaks !
One dentist says Tom we need to remove some teeth,
refers me to another specialist who says we need to remove even MORE teeth,
and refers me to a Oral Surgeon…
this has only taken a month!  STRESSED OUT is a under statement!

Wait a minute Man of GOD…
YOUR Stressed OUT and fighting FEAR?
YES I AM !!!

So my LIFE Gift of 40 years” Cathy”  says…

“Tommie , I know this isn’t what you wanted!
but, didn’t we pray that the chemo cup might be removed?

Well if the teeth are infected that would rise your Blood counts and Lower your white count  and it’s taken 30 days to get here…
the oncologist won’t do the treatments until your dental need is addressed…
maybe the teeth are creating a false reading?
Fix the teeth and then  we will take another Blood test …
before we consider other options

My Grandfather said:  ” Tommie,

The Answer is …
YOU is Where you is…
but where do you Dare to Believe you could Be?


It will take just 60 seconds to read this and change your thinking…


The REAL Story…


Two men, both seriously ill, occupied the same hospital room.

One man was allowed to sit up in his bed for an hour each afternoon to help drain the fluid from his lungs.

His bed was next to the room’s only window.

The other man had to spend all his time flat on his back.

The men talked for hours on end.


They spoke of their wives and families, their homes, their jobs,
their involvement in the military service, where they had been on


Every afternoon, when the man in the bed by the window could sit up, he would pass the time by describing to his roommate all the things he could see outside the window.

The man in the other bed began to live for those one hour periods where his world would be broadened and enlivened by all the activity and color of the world outside.

The window overlooked a park with a lovely lake.
Ducks and swans played on the water, while children sailed their model boats. Young lovers walked arm in arm amidst flowers of every color

and a fine view of the city skyline could be seen in the distance.

As the man by the window described all this in exquisite details, the man on the other side of the room would close his eyes and imagine this picturesque scene.

One warm afternoon, the man by the window described a parade passing by.

Although the other man could not hear the band -he could see it in his mind’s eye as the gentleman by the window portrayed it with
descriptive words.

Days, weeks and months passed.
One morning, the day nurse arrived to bring water for their baths only to find
the lifeless body

of the man by the window, who had died peacefully in his sleep.

She was saddened and called the hospital attendants to take the body away.

As soon as it seemed appropriate, the other man asked if he could be moved next to the window.The nurse was happy to make the switch, and after making sure
he was comfortable, she left
him alone.

Slowly, painfully, he propped himself up on one elbow to take his first look at the real world outside. He strained to slowly turn to look out the window besides the bed.

It faced a blank wall.


The man asked the nurse what could have compelled his deceased roommate
who had described such wonderful things outside this


The nurse responded that the man was blind and could not even see the wall.

She said, ‘Perhaps he just wanted to encourage you.’



There is tremendous happiness in making others happy,
despite our own situations.  Shared grief is half the sorrow, but Happiness when shared, is doubled.
If you want to feel rich, just count all the things you have that money can’t buy.


‘Today is a gift, that is why it is called The Present.

Don’t just  LIKE  this…but  SHARE it !

Because Somebody may need to read this!
It may Change their LIFE or Even the WORLD!

Change one person’s LIFE, Today and the World will NEVER be the SAME Pass it on Neighbor




WHERE is YOU? … is N E V E R the REAL Question !

The Secret to a GREAT DAY…

The Secret to a Great Day… Don’t Let the Problems WIN? ASK the ANSWER…Seek HIM

My Grandfather asked me: “Tommie,  Do you Know the Secret of a GREAT day?”


“The Blessings of the LORD are renewed Every Morning…
Claim HIS Favor, Protection, and Blessings Today!
Repeat the Exercise Every Day!”


That is NOT a popular thought today !

Many even question if GOD exist?

In LIFE,  Where you are is NOT the Question? …
It’s will we Pass the TEST,
Can we Eat the Meal ?
The Salt and Pepper is Prayer and the Song of Praise!


Please Consider this:
By persistence…the snail finally arrived at the ARK!

HE Whistled and HUMMMED along the Way!

GOD Loves the Songs of Gratitude and Thanksgiving… by them
we rebuke the assaults of the Evil one

Read about the TESTS of this man of GOD
the Prophet Elijah has :

Raised a child from the Dead  1Kings :17

Stopped the 3 year drought!

Beats Ahab in a Foot Race…
(old man on foot .VS.  King and Horses/Chariot) 1Kings: 18

Beat the 450 prophets of baal in a contest…
WHO god IS GOD? 1 Kings: 18

Then the REAL T E S T … 1 Kings : 19

Ahab goes home and tells Jezebel all that Elijah had done.
She is enraged and sends a messenger to the prophet saying …
” SO may the gods do to me and MORE, if I do not make your life as one of  them
( the 450 Dead prophets of baal)  by
this time tomorrow.


Elijah was terrified and ran away and hid in the wilderness.
Read HOW GOD restored him and even gave him a FOXHOLE Buddy!

If God in HIS Mercy and LOVE can do it for the Men/Women of the Bible…
how much MORE will He Do it for you?

Yes Neighbor the battle is raging…Who is your GOD?
Do you Fear…  God or man!


SEEK the LORD and HE will SEEK … Y O U !


FOOD for Thought:
Do You FEAR…GOD or man?

2nd R… ASK will this Help me and Someone else?
if you can’t say YES…You can’t Proceed !


3rd R…ASK will this Help me, Someone else, and Somebody else, too!

ASK will this Help someone else, Yes?
and will this benefit and Help somebody else, YES?

Will this HELP ME,  HELP Someone else,  then Help somebody else,
YES and HELP Everyone INVOLVED ?
