HOWDY! “Juan? Are You Serious?”

The “Five” on Fox is one of my favorites. Talk about diversity! But, it must be a challenge to hold your own as a Liberal and I give Juan Williams credit for hanging in. My only question is, “Are you serious, Juan?” Do you truly believe America should “Go BLUE?” Really!?? Affording progressive perspective from various “contributors” makes for parity, but it’s worrisome for me. Progressive politics is “Regressive” and Democratic Socialism is simply “Sanctimonious Suicide”!  All my life, I have been uncomfortable with any “Treaty” with a Godless nation. Never would I live to see my own nation to be happy to move away from Scriptural Truth. But it doesn’t cause me to lose faith. I will never condone what man’s laws allow when those laws diametrically oppose God’s Law. They just prove we are everyone a sinner, falling short of the Glory of God. I pray all of us will humble ourselves and pray and seek the face of God and turn from wickedness in repentance. If we do so, then my Holy God will hear us, forgive our sin and heal my land. OH! That will be Glory for me! And that’s what I get from My box of chocolates. AMEN

HOWDY! ” The Family of the True God”

Have you noticed how things seem to be unraveling?

I believe there to be only ONE eternal hope for mankind intended by a Supreme God.  I believe what that Supreme God says in The Bible.  I believe the Jewish nation was first given this message for the world, but their religious leaders failed to complete the mission.  As a matter of fact, when sin became the lifestyle of this chosen race, God regretted its creation and completely wiped the earth clean of all of it with a flood, with the exception of one righteous man and his immediate family.  That man was Noah, who along with his three sons, followed instructions to build a gigantic boat that would house him, his wife, his sons and their wives and pairs of all the creeping, crawling, flying, swimming creatures, to survive the flood.  Noah did as God instructed, all the while preaching and warning of the coming judgement.  He was ignored, resulting in total devastation.   Things went along fairly well then, again,  folks failed to do as God willed, so he provided salvation through belief in his God/Son, Jesus Christ, who died for us all. The dark powers of the world attempt to confuse and demean the truth, offering instead attractive opportunities that appeal to our human nature and leads away from God.  We need to return and soon.   We need a heart-cleansing dose of brotherly love again. Apostle Paul, even after being imprisoned by the Roman authorities, continued to send love letters to the church. I copied the only way to become a Child of the King from the internet:

It will be worth your time to peruse and internalize it, donchaknow, really! Just remember that the ways and laws of the world will not save your eternal soul. Being a good person is not enough since everyone is born in sin. What the world needs is Jesus. It’s just a kneel-at-the-Cross away, donchaknow, really!

And that’s what I get from MY box of chocolates.      AMEN

HOWDY! “A Crooked Smile”

WIN_20200224_17_29_04_Pro My rather “crooked smile” was of immediate concern for the doctors at Methodist Richardson recently.  They were concerned, as was I. Praise God, it was diagnosed as inner-ear infection that brought on slight vertigo and fuzzy mindedness.  They were relieved when told them that the right side of my smile was “natural”.  I gave up trying to straighten it up.  It’s simply crooked, period.  What impressed me about the whole ordeal was the serious attention they gave to my problem.  I greatly appreciate our doctors.  I believe those who minister to our maladies and ills to be “Angels”!  I spent the majority of my life without medical problems, but all that changed over the past few years and my hospital stays have convinced me that we are in blessed hands, and that’s what I get from MY box of chocolates.     AMEN

HOWDY! “L-I-V-E” reversed is E-V-I-L….

EVIL!  Our lives are worth much more than we realize, but even at that, our lives on earth are but temporary and, without God, short-lived futility. Really!  He meant more for us than what we are experiencing today! Worldliness results in Destruction. God gave us all free will, but he also gave us common sense.  Listening to today’s educators and talking heads has ruined minds! Today’s demonstrations are not based on truth. Most of our youth walk in darkness! They have been brainwashed at our expense, by our acquiescence.  Faith in government is “Socialism” and, regardless of any other descriptive word you add to socialism, it is a death knell for “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness” and that is EVILGodless Socialism results in loss of  these very precious benefits guaranteed  in our Constitution.  Pray for those who oppose a ‘Man After God’s Own Heart” and vote “American”! Look past personality and appearance.  Take an honest perusal of the facts of our economy and blessings of  hope that just over three years, with President Trump, provided by a Holy God.  Obama was right when he said, “You didn’t build this alone”!  Donald Trump didn’t either, donchaknow.  “WE” did, with God’s Blessing,  and don’t ever loose fact of that truth. We will always have ‘flawed’ candidates vying for office. Not a one is perfect, but looking at the physical side of a person causes one to miss the mark.  It’s what’s INSIDE that counts.  Donald Trump’s heart is right! Donald Trump truly loves America and “Americans”.   Donald Trump isn’t perfect, but he IS chosen.  America is uneducated as to TRUTH today and it is evident in our choices of those who are placed in positions of power.  Congress is Confused and that’s obvious in their ineptness and failure to serve as designed.  Two words beginning with “A” and “G” describe government’s desire–Avarice and Greed. AVARICE and GREED!!

No American Statesman should be financially supported by foreign powers!  No American Statesman should be living a lifestyle that violates God’s Holy Word!  No American Statesman should be allowed to buy an office! No American Stateswoman should call out lies and deceits of another when lying about her own heritage and what’s in her safe! No American Statesman should favor Communism, in any form, and be seated at the desk of the Oval Office…NEVER!  (And the Democratic Party knows this and is quaking in their Blue Boots).  Probably the most worthy person of choice for them is being thrown aside for illicit promises of “free stuff”.

Don’t take my word for any of this, just internalize what God has to say about illicit furor. Here’s what the most wise man who ever lived says: “Do not those who plot evil go astray??  But those who plan what is good find love and faithfulness.”  (Proverbs 14:22)  So, you ‘moderns’ do as you like.  Make a fatal mistake of Poor Choice and miss out on love and faithfulness. As for me and my house…..well, you get the idea.

The TRUMPet is Sounding!

And that’s what I get from MY box of chocolates.   AMEN

HOWDY! “Fellow Waders”

Stats show that there have been just under 300 followers, taking daily wades in the stream of my life, so far this year. WOW! This is the first time I’ve checked and it comes as a big surprise that my lifting of a blessed life-shade is read in the USA and seven other countries:  Russia, Vietnam, France, England, Germany, Thailand and India!! This comes as a big surprise since I am no longer on  Facebook.  I believe I lost hundreds when I left FB and as far as I know, WW is available only on Twitter and LinkedIn.  It would be good to know what you all think about my blog and how I could improve it to make it more worthwhile.  Comments, please and Thank You!

And that’s what I get from My box of chocolates.     AMEN

FYI:   Tomorrow, “The Roman Road” to Christ.

HOWDY! “Birthday Celebrations”

I believe that there has not been enough ‘Birthday Celebrations’!  OH! Sure there have a plethora of “Well Wishes”…..cakes and candles, cards and emails, balloons and booze and punch and presents, but not enough ‘Celebrations”!  How many people whose life past the age of ‘childhood’, has been celebrated by a gathering of well-wishers who actually take time to attend and appreciate their existence? Well, that’s not enough!  Today is the birthday of my Dad.  Samuel Wade Austin was born on this day way back in 1900.  He grew up and lived in the same town, where he was born, for over eighty-years, but he never had anyone, other than  immediate family,  celebrate with him.   Come to think of it, neither did my Mother! We’ve seen movies and television “Surprises” with a crowd of celebrants, but have you ever been the ‘celebrated’? I have! I was truly honored by a bunch of folks on my  80th birthday, back in Charlotte.   We were living in Highland Creek and I was honored to serve on our associations board of directors, active at our neighborhood church, blessed with many friends and in-laws.  My (then) wife, step-daughter and her family as well as their kin, gathered in our Club House and it was a most humbling experience.  Of course, I was privy to the plan since I had to sign-off on the association’s permission, but I didn’t expect the crowd of neighbors and friends that took time to attend.   It was one of the best emotional days of my life, and, something we all need to experience. Be LOVING!   Here I am in Rowlett, Texas  at 4AM, celebrating the life of a very fine man, and since February is the month of birthdays of Dad, my son, myself and four of my cousins, a bit saddened that there was no family gathering this year, nor any other year for that matter.   I regret that fact and since My Lord has seen fit for me hang around, I will make it known that I wish a ‘celebration’ for all of the Austins who remain, each and every one in 2020. It will not be too difficult since most will soon be back home. And, since many were born around February, we could combine attendance. I would propose a gathering Easter weekend 2020 for Steven, his family and his sisters’ families. Then, God Willing, around Valentine’s Day, another for the entire bunch.   Now, that’s a HOOT, donchaknow. Really.    In honor of those who meant so much, why not all of you take time to ‘Celebrate Life’ with your own ‘Love Gathering’, before it’s too late.   This old world’s scoreboard clock is ticking zeroes.  And, that’s what I get from My box of chocolates.

Happy Birthday, Papaw!   AMEN

HOWDY! “Hall of Fame”

NEVADA BROADCASTERS HALL OF FAME

Looking very closely at this photo, you can see the granite award cropped-win_20190106_04_31_39_pro from the Nevada Broadcasters Association in 2001. What made this night so very special was having my son and his daughter there. There are two fellow broadcasters included. Gordon “Gordie” Alsum was my engineer-friend and Ted Bair was mid-day  at the same time I worked at K-DAWN.  Gordie passed away a few years back and last I heard, Ted was living in Idaho. Both were fine fellows, donchaknow. Really.  Just wanted you to know,  and that’s what I get from MY box of chocolates.  AMEN
