  1. Jesus left His home on high; Was born of Mary one fine day, Then grew to manhood To show others the way. The gospel he taught, He healed the sick; raised the dead. The lame could walk; the blind could see Due to the works he wrought. He taught us to repent, Be baptized and wash our sins away. To make atonement he was sent, If only we would obey. We ought to be disciples of him, To walk the way he taught, Follow, and let not our faith dim, And our good works forth be brought. To show the world his great love And honor His commands; As we lift our hearts above, Above the ways of earth and sin. To honor him is a delight. He brought us out of darkness And into a life of light, There to find joy without sadness. To receive him, we teach others the way. To be his disciple is our goal; For “to do” is better than what we say. For to rescue a soul makes one whole. He overcame sin with death. “Love one another” he taught. We overcome sin with love. The love, we as disciples wrought.

  3. Christmas is the best time of year. It’s a season of love and joy without any fear. Because of our Saviour’s birth so long ago, We rejoice and know salvation is near. For the Christ child gave us all hope Of a better day; And His life was an example of a better way. We learned that to give, is better than to receive. To serve is better than to be served, That the greatest among us is the servant of all. For to give a gift is fine, But to give of oneself is better. If we follow the Saviour’s way, We will be rewarded with blessings greater than pay. For happiness we will find, And to life’s problems, we will pay no mind. Christmas is time to recall the Saviour’s birth; Time to rejoice in His great worth. He saved us all from our sins; So we will one day live with Him. Christmas is time to spend with family and friends, To give a lift to those that are dying within. And to give a gift to those in need; And a blessing to those that ere and give not heed. Christmas is a time to make merry; For love and service make us forget that we have a burden to carry. As we love Him, that gave us the greatest example of love, And journey down life’s lane to that home above. “For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.” Luke 2:11
  4. Sweetheart dear, have you passed through that veil, That separates me and you? A reply from your lips, I cannot tell. Movement from your eyes, you cannot do. Have you departed to that world of spirits on high? Have you met your maker there? Do you miss me here on earth? Have you found the Savior anywhere? Do you see me here on earth alone? Or are you next to me all along? Are you with your kin; Or do you long for me here alone? One day I will follow in your path, For I must keep the faith somehow. Courage and patience, I must hath; To endure the trials upon me now. I will not schedule an arrival time, Though I do know the route. For the road is straight and narrow, But curves and hollows are scattered all about. For God sent His Son into the world, To redeem us of our sins; That we could come back into that place Where our spirit family did begin. For to truly love, Takes a life of service and devotion. To model the Savior’s love, Is my greatest fond emotion. I will meet my sweetheart again, When the rightful time is nigh. For the Lord will lead me down that path That brings me to you at that home on high.
  5. FATHER dear, have you passed through that veil, That separates me and you? A reply from your lips, I cannot tell. Movement from your eyes, you cannot do. Have you gone to that world of spirits on high? Have you met your maker there? Are you with your loved ones there? Have you found the Saviour anywhere? You can visit all those across the bar; You are freed from that body of pain. But we miss you here on earth below; Your room is empty, where in past you have lain. Do you see me now, here on earth still, Or are you sitting on your throne above? Maybe you are mingling with the saints at will, Or are you resting from your journey of love? One day I will follow In your path, I must keep the faith for now. Courage and patience I must hath; For the love of God, I must honor and bow. For God sent His Son into the world, To redeem us of our sins; That we could come back into that world, Where our spirit family did begin. I will not schedule an arrival time Though I do know the route. For the road is straight and narrow, But curves and hollows are scattered all about. For to love God and fellow man, Takes a life of service and love. Serving, caring and lending a helping hand Will lead me to that home with you above.
  6. Mother dear have you passed through that veil, That separates me and you? A reply from your lips, I cannot tell. Movement from your eyes, you cannot do. Have you gone to that world of spirits on high? Have you met your maker there? Are you with your life’s true love? Have you found the Savior anywhere? You can visit all your loved ones again; You are freed from that body of pain. But we miss you here on earth below; Your room is empty, where in past you have lain. Do you see me now? Here on earth still, Or are you sitting on your throne above? Maybe you are mingling with the saints at will, Or are you resting from your journey of love? One day I will follow in your path, I must keep the faith for now. Courage and patience, I must hath; For the love of God, I must honor and bow.

  7. A salesman called at an office building at 5:45 pm. The front door was locked, but a basement door was open. He walked in and saw the janitor sweeping the floor in the back corner. He decided to find the name of the owner or manager from the janitor. He also decided he would make the janitor feel good by pretending to think that he was the owner. The salesman approached and said, “I am calling for the owner or president of this business. Would that be you?” “Yes”, the man sweeping the floor replied. Well, the salesman just about fell over. When he could compose himself to speak, he stated his business and asked if they could sit down. The man set aside his broom and led the salesman to an upstairs luxurious office with a spacious desk. It turned out that the “janitor” owned the eight-story office building and was the CEO of the oil company, headquartered there. The salesman not only got the order, but he also made a friend. Naomi was a childless widow living in a foreign land. She returned to her native country with her daughter-in-law, Ruth, hoping to find a better life after experiencing poverty, starvation and the death of her husband and two sons (Ruth 1 KJV). Since they had no income, Ruth picked up grain in the fields for food for both of them (Ruth 2). Then Ruth married Boaz, the owner of the fields, and they had a son, Obed. Naomi became Obed’s nanny and he became the grandfather of King David (Ruth 4). These are two stories, a modern-day event and an Old Testament story of seemingly unimportant people, who turned out to be very important. Sometimes this earth life is not the arena for our importance. Remember the story of Lazarus, the beggar. He had sores all over his body and he begged at the gate of a rich man, hoping to receive the crumbs that fell from the rich man’s table. When he died, he happily went to Abraham’s side, but the rich man went to Hades (Luke 16:19-25). Who was the important person in this story? Importance is not always visible to us. For the Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart (I Sam 16: 7). How many unimportant important people are there in your life, your family, or your neighborhood? By Larry Kuka
  8. Polyphenols are chemicals found in foods that work as antioxidants to prevent the damage of free radicals. These are unstable molecules that can damage the arteries and cause numerous health problems. Loss of energy is one of the symptoms. Different types of polyphenols exist and contribute to reducing inflammation and are associated with a lower risk of several chronic diseases. Eating a wide variety of foods will ensure you get the healthiest diet possible. Polyphenols appear to improve the function of blood vessels and slow the formation of blood clots. The United States Department of Agriculture lists blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, citrus fruits and other fruits as good sources of polyphenols. The “The Journal of Nutrition” found that dark grapes, bilberries, cherries, apples, dark plums, blackberries and blueberries were all good sources as well. Also pomegranates, peaches, apricots, dates, cranberries and herbs are good sources. Fruit juices, such as grape juice or red wine, contain especially high levels of polyphenols. All fruits contain polyphenols or other antioxidants, and a healthy diet should contain around three servings of colorful fruits each day. All vegetables provide polyphenols or other antioxidants. Onions and potatoes are moderate to high in polyphenols. Vegetables should be chosen for their bright colors, with all colors eaten each week, including red, orange, yellow, blue, purple, white and green. Eating three to five servings of vegetables each day is ideal for good health. Rye and other whole grains found in whole grain breads and cereals contain various levels of polyphenols. Flax seeds and sesame seeds are good for cardiovascular health. Peanuts are also a good source of polyphenols. Green tea could also be consumed regularly for its high content. Chocolate and seeds also contain this antioxidant but should be consumed in moderation due to high caffeine and fat content. Fresh fruits and vegetables contain the highest levels of polyphenols. Peeling food reduces the level of these important nutrients. While cooking food may reduce polyphenol levels, it often raises the availability of the nutrient, allowing us to better receive the food’s benefit. Here are a few eating tips: eat whole grain cereal for breakfast (no packaged cereal made from enriched flour and sugar or high fructose corn syrup). Eat a salad with dinner and reduce meat and cheese consumption. Lunch and snack on vegetables or fruit. Eating a pomegranate provides more anti-oxidants than any other food and is two or three times more powerful than drinking red wine. by Lary Kuka Sources: http://www.livestrong.com/article/74380-foods-high-polyphenols/ https://www.verywell.com/what-are-polyphenols-2507085 http://www.genesmart.com/100161/high-polyphenols-foods/ http://www.genesmart.com/topics/antioxidants/polyphenols/ Not intended as medical advice.

  9. Have you ever thought about where the water coming from the tap comes from? What about that bottled water you purchased at the store? Is it from a surface water source or is it from groundwater source? Why should you care about the location of the water in which you drink? Public water from municipalities and counties contains fluoride and chlorine. Both of these chemicals are poisonous. Fluoride is used to make rat poison and as a pesticide (See the youtube video posted in references). In countries where fluoride is added to the water, there are high rates of Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease. In countries where fluoride is not used, their rates of these diseases are low. The African countries of the Rift Valley have naturally occurring fluoride, due to volcano deposits. All of these countries have high rates of Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s. Fluoride also removes the enamel from your teeth, causing tooth decay. That is why dentists always give you a tube of toothpaste with fluoride in it when you leave their office. It creates repeat business. This is why we have a dentist office on every corner. Fluoride also affects thyroid function and can cause lethargy and depression. Fluoride also affects IQ and memory. The facts about chlorine are more startling. Chlorine is used in industry, to make bleach and was used to kill soldiers during World War I. According to the U.S. Council of Environmental Quality, the cancer risk to people that drink chlorinated water is 93% higher than those that don’t. The Council also reports chlorinated water increases risks for heart problems, kidney problems, headache, dizziness, asthma, skin rashes, weakened immune system, eye, sinus, and throat irritation, birth defects, miscarriages, and low sperm count. So chlorinated water kills bacteria but introduces other risks. The use of these chemicals in public water supplies is protected by the Chemical Manufacturers Association, the American Dental Association, and the corporations that lobby, donate and control the U.S. Congress and the FDA. Bottled water gets mixed reviews. Much of the bottled water is just tap water from a public water source. Some bottled water is pure spring water. Other bottled water contains added sweeteners and chemicals. Read the labels on the bottles. “Pure Water” does not mean anything. It may be pure fluorinated, chlorinated water. Public water supplies may come from rivers, reservoirs or drilled wells. Sometimes the same river that is the source for the public water supply is also carrying the waste from the sewerage treatment plant upriver. If the source is a river, find out which municipalities dump their sewerage upstream in that river. Also, find out how many times the sewerage plant was breached and raw sewerage was dumped into the river. You have to do some research to find out. You might be in for some big, big surprises. Find out where the source of your public water supply is. Your health and your families’ health depend on it. by Larry Kuka References: http://www.webmd.com/women/news/20150225/fluoride-in-drinking-water-tied-to-higher-rates-of-underactive-thyroid http://www.fluoride-history.de/p-insecticides.htm http://www.healthychoices.co.uk/fluoride.html http://www.parkinsonsandfluoride.com/ http://www.healthy-communications.com/fluorideasratpoison.html http://emergency.cdc.gov/agent/chlorine/basics/facts.asp http://www.mercola.com/Downloads/bonus/chlorine/default.htm http://www.waterbenefitshealth.com/chlorine-in-drinking-water.html https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=39KZFEh84Dg
  10. Etowah, Tennessee - Dec.1, 2119 - Demolition workers were tearing down an almost two century old Baptist Church in downtown Etowah, Tennessee when they found a time capsule inside the brick and mortar wall. It was a waterproof plastic pipe with solid plastic ends. Inside was a bible, published in 1980, some early 1900’s circa silver coins and a laminated letter written by the church pastor. The letter was dated June 6, 2033. Here are some excerpts from the letter: The people have stopped coming to church. The pews are empty. Sundays are filled with sports: soccer games, golf, baseball, football and basketball practices and games. Lavish buffets and dinners are provided at restaurants, resorts and bars. The stores and shopping malls are filled with people searching the Sunday sales. Churches can no longer compete with these commercial and recreational activities. Money is no object. Credit is available to everyone, regardless of their ability or desire to re-pay. Consumer debt has multiplied many times. The stress has dissolved most families. Children and juveniles run wild and loose on the streets. Crime is unrestrained. Police are not allowed to carry guns and they only have time to investigate heinous killings and mass murders. Hatred has taken the place of brotherly love and civility. Antifa led protests and riots have resulted in the burning of large portions of New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Washington, DC, and Atlanta. Even in small towns, stores are looted and burned, courthouses destroyed, cars overturned and burned while the occupants are still inside. Leftist politicians have succeeded in removing President Trump, after his election to a second term in the White House. He and his Attorney General were exiled to Cuba. The leftist Representatives and Senators succeeded in getting a socialist president and socialist controlled Congress installed. They passed laws that allowed sexual perverts to take control of schools and youth organizations and eliminated the private ownership of guns. Now terrorists shoot and kill anyone they desire, especially handicapped persons, conservatives, pro-lifers, pastors and anyone teaching Christianity, modesty or morality. The national debt has soared and the Federal Reserve Bank loans money around the clock while the U.S. Treasury prints currency 24 hours/day. Inflation has soared. A loaf of bread is now $3,500.00 and a 2- bedroom apartment rents for $600,000.00/month. Most people are unemployed unless they have a government job. Anyone working for the government has to swear allegiance to the leftist leaders. Taxes are 80% of earnings. Many persons attempt to work underground, being paid in cash. If they are caught, they are sent to concentration camps created from old schools with ten-foot high electrified barbed wire fences. The prisoners are taught godlessness, Fascism, Socialism and leftist propaganda. Airlines, airport and freight terminals are closed. The Dept. of Homeland Security and the U.S. Border Patrol have been eliminated and the borders are now open both ways. Thousands are fleeing across the southern border to Mexico every day, while Chinese troops are crossing into California and Russian armored trucks and tanks are crossing over into Texas. Radical Islamic Terrorists are everywhere. Fortunately, this time capsule was found before all of the buildings in this town were torn down in order to re-build more environmentally efficient buildings out of cardboard. Most of the automobiles and trucks are off the road due to lack of fuel and battery chargers. Electricity is only available a few hours per day. By chance, our reporter was able to borrow a horse and ride 12 twelve miles to bring this story to the news desk. (Written by Larry Kuka - Riceville, TN USA).
  11. Let us all press on in the work of the Lord and give praise and glory to Jesus Christ, our Lord & Savior.                             Jesus.jpg.17c62d146099faa46271cde15704122d.jpg
