Because of all of your contributions to natural approaches to wello-bing, that is those approaches provided by our Father, I had you in mind when posting this last on my mattress. If you have something I worded oddly to be elaborated upon, just let me know. God bless you always.......j

Once someone selling beds on TV in the US mentioned how we spend almost one third of our lives in bed so we should make certain it is a good one. I think I was in my twenties when I heard that one.....it did not strike home.

About ten years ago I bought a new mattress, the important part of a sturdy supporting bed frame and bed. Well it wa a cheak¡ing the first actually new bed I ever had, but it seemed fine.

Three days ago I bought a new mattress, but this time a nice one, and it has two really thick layers of foam inside and a thick layer of latex on top. I was dubious, but I thought ok, I will give it a try.

After one night, my left shoulder stopped huirting so much, and I was actually able to sleep on my left side for the first time in a couple of years. I did not have to stop and check my balance when I got up in the morning, and my back and kidneys did not hurt anymore. I did awake during th night for a nature call feeling so alert and thinking I would never get back to sleep. Well That is about all I remember of being awake.

I can also lay down flat on my back again, and I feel so rested when I am not in bed sleeping it is incredible.

For now my romance with the mattress is going so stronly thatwhen I am up, I am shistfully thinking ofbedtime.....you dmya harty harr now, cause it is funny.

My point is for all who are feeling off about their sleep and having similar pains in the morning to consider getting something like that. No, you do not need a hospical bed, but a good mattress is truly worth it. Take it from a 73 year-old who is just learning, and God bless you mightily always.

I rejoice for you.

Above is today's Bing contribution to my daily Bing splash screen. The image is a Malayasian Macaque.

His set of teeth seem to be better than most of ours, and those eyes are hypnotic. I think he (or she) is even
much better looking than most, well, than I anyway.

Thanks for the 'mattress-post' = we pray many will listen and take this most valuable
care of themselves - a well made and supportive mattress can be almost an instant
cure/relief for so many problems in our bodies...we, hub and myself have had to learn
the hard way...
:eek::)

My Testimony

Forgive my repeating some.

As a child, pre-schooler, I was sent off to summer Bible school with my youngest (older tan I) sister. Being wee ones we were not Reading the Word but learning songs of the love of Jesus. The truth that Jesus loves me (all) remained with me though I was never quite convinced of His being absolute in every way………especially what He teaches man.

It was not until I was in my final year at the University of Illinois that I was given to believe completely in His truth and being God.

I had been doing drugs, recreational as they were deemed, I was active against the war in Viet Nam, and the last immedite influence givemn me to seek and to find our Maker was a rpblem going on in a small African break-away country called Biafra.

When I was made aware that the US was sending aid to these suffering and starving people I was so happy and relieved until I found out further that all the relif supplies were being held just outside of Biafra while the people there continued starving. Then I was made aware of why the suppies were stopped there. The United States did not want to upset diplomatic relations with Nigeria, the country from which Biafra had detached itself.

With with this new knowledge of man’s inhumanity to man, my heart was broken, for those suffering near and far for this very reason.

I locked myself in a room determined not to leave until I had some kind of response as to the fate of mankind and me. I did not realice it, but my vow to not eat or leave was fasting, and my question was prayer of course. I shook my fist upwards and declared, “You are Who you are; if you are in charge of all that is, if you are almighty, and if there is good to come out of all of this evil, I would like to know You and even serve you if necessary.”

I fell into a profound sleep, and a dream was given me with verbal teaching also. I dreamed I was at a mountain resort by a lake. There were people wáter skiing on the lake and waving at me, others swimming, and people doing a variety of recreational activities, but I was told that I was not to remain here. I was to go on a trip. I stasrted to get into a station wagon, drier’s side, and I was told to geton the passenger side. I do not really know Who the driver was, but I am sure you have the same idea I have. There were people in the back seat also.

Then a panorama opened up depicting many highways, byways, roads, freewas and whatever else you may imagine. I knew this to be the ways of the travel.

Then, suddenly, all of the panorama disappeared, and a very dark and winding road up a dark mountain appeared in front of my eyes full of ruts and pot holes, and I was told, “You will be taking this road. There will be no tres on it.”

For myself only, and to my own satisfaction, I understood what was being said, though not what the detaisl were to be.

I awoke believing I had been instructed by the Maker of all that is, yet He did not identify Himself.

Everything looked to be alien to me. A car came down the Street, and although it did not frighten me, I did not know what it was at first. Colors were quite bright and everything seemed new to me, even those things destined to the fire next time.

Later that day I was talking with a friend, Shelly,a Jew, and relating to him my experience. He was a very good friend. This was in the Illini Union building in the Student Union. I wanted to go and share this with another friend so I excused myself,and left him there.

Walking across the Quadrangle of the University and pondering the current events Viet Nam, Biafra, and man’s cruelty in general, I kept saying to our Maker, “Gosh man is wicked, he is so bad, his evi” All at once Irealized something very important for us all to know saying, “Wow, I am a man (meaning part of the evil).” Suddenly everything turned to Light , and the Light entered into me, Our Maker entered into me. Then all I could do was say, “You are It (all that is important), You are It.”

I was made alive for the very first time ever, and I know all was going to be just fine! Why? That is the message that came into me with the Light, “Everything is going to be just fine.” I had turned from the world and its Works to the Kingdom and our Father, and I knew it.

I practically flew back to the student Union and to my friend, Shelly. I felt as though my feet were not on the ground. Shelly saw me and said, asked, “Jack, what’s wrong.” Without needing to read it anywhere, I said, “God’s Spirit came into me, your God Yahweh.”

An entire litany of miracles ensued beginning with Yahweh leading me directly to Yeshua…….I may call Him God and Jesus also only because when I use those terms I know exactly Who I am referring to.

I had never been able to red teh Bible previous to theseexperiences, this changed radically that very night, but that is another story to recount if you want to hear it.

I would share my joy with all who wanted to hear what was given me to say, and very frequently I would open my mouth and speak and share things I had not yet read in the Word, only to be led directly to what I hd learned from opening my mouth and speaking from the printed Word led by the Holy Spirit…….by the way, I did not know about the baptism of the Holy Spirit until it happned, and I wa given to let others know it happend without having beentaugth there was such a thing………..so I believe.
ÇGod bless you,

Always in the love of Yeshua…jack

Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

This is my story coming to Jesus. I took me a couple of months of seeking Jesus after I found my second marriage falling apart. We were both drinking and felt this spiritual emptiness that we couldn't shake. My wife was raised Pentecostal and I was more or less a Baptist. Driving an 18 Wheeler, I was coming home to NE Oklahoma from Western Texas on a Christmas eve. I just made Abilene and heard on the radio about an ice storm hitting Dallas/Ft. Worth area. I cut North to Wichita Falls to try to get North of the storm, praying I could keep going and not have to shut down.

I was pulling an empty van trailer coming home. As I topped each hill the wind was freezing water on the highway. On the hilltops, you couldn't do anything: it was black ice. Starting back down into valley, you had traction again. I thought: I am doing pretty good. Then suddenly a Volkswagen ahead of me started stopping on top of a hill. Once I got up there I could see a tow-truck driver stopped halfway down the hill right in the middle of the road. A couple of cars slid into the ditch, and he was trying to drum up business. I was probably going only 1 MPH when I had to hit the brakes, to not hit the VW, or move into oncoming traffic. When I hit the brakes I started sliding and jack-knifed denting the cab of my tractor. The tow driver looked up and realized he had caused the problem, so he jumps in his truck and took off. Needless to say, my dispatcher shut me down and told me to get a room.

I call it telepathy. When God first talked to me, I was in a motel room with a shotgun ready to blow my brains out. My first marriage was on the rocks and I was really feeling guilty about a lot of things. I had been drinking but I think adrenaline had me lucid. I thought I was arguing with myself. But looking back I was arguing with something that was very calm: I was anything but calm. This Spirit reminded me of how all my loved ones would view this act. It talked me out of it.

I was praying in the motel room and watching an evangelist on TV. He was teaching on James 1. He got to the part about a double minded man, and it hit me. Wow! That was me. I was trying to pass a little of myself to God, have Him clean that piece up and pass it back. I started praying: God, now I know it wasn't you holding back; it was me. Then I said: I don't know what it will take to serve you; but whatever that entails, I will find and do it. Suddenly this overpowering thought comes into my very being saying: "Now that I can use." God started talking to me that day and He has since.

God uses this spirit talk, but we need to be careful: Satan, or one of his cohorts, will use it too. When a spirit is communing with us and we suspect evil, we need to test the spirit.
1 John 4:1-3: "Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world."

There seems to be a number of articles i have started wc i never got to finish, and dont want to be starting anything again soon.

Stormy Daniels has offered to give back the hush money that she said that Trump Indirectly gave her,She said she just wants to be free to tell the story of her affair with Trump.

Do you think Trump should take the money and let her talk?

What If Trump decides not to take the money,will his supporters start scratching their heads wondering and thinking maybe Trump IS guilty,asking themdelves why doesn’t Trump take the money and let her talk?

Or do Trump supporters just yawn at this because they think It’s not more Important than him making america great,again?

Trump never gave her any money in the first place so there is nothing to take back. I never heard of this person and I really don't care what her story is. Yeah, Trump supporters are probably yawning.

As for what technology has emerged in our life times..... Think how some of us slightly older fell when we realize that nuclear energy came into being after we were born, not to mention the widespread use of television, and telephones, though telephones and tv were around for some time before I was bron, the idea of more than one to nine channels was absurd not to mention the thought of carrying a telephone around with you.

nOW IT IS NORMAL TO BE SOMEWHAT Amazed at what has occurred idn our momentary time here in this age, but can you imagine how our Father has and will continually astound us with His wonder? I believe His wonder will astound us, His children always, I mean by always, eternally. So when thinking of the "knowledge that has been increased" IN this age, remember He has astounded us by letting us know all about it beforehand.All blessings in Jesus..j

EarnestQ, if you are around. I resolved the wifi connection for videos, photos, and music, but I do not know nor have a clue as to how to get a mirror of my PC monitor on my TV screen. The TV is a "smart" TV, and the platform of my PC is the up-to-date version of W10.

If EQ does not hear me, anyone? Thanks and God bless you.
