One thing that he is struggling with is speech - it makes it hard to understand him at times , please could you continue to pray for his healing, for rehab but also for God to heal his speech - its amazing how much communication makes a difference to how we interact.
A good spot to keep valuables is drill a hole into the top part of a door - stand on a ladder and drill a 1" diameter hole down into the solid wood part of a door and drop any valuables down into it.....a USB drive would fit....
Some time ago I'd heard comments that FB was run by the Intel agencies. Its main prupose was alleged to be collecting as much information on everyone as possible, the sort of stuff the spooks could only dream of. Now, not only is it there , but people have done it willingly. I have no idea if the Intel agencies run it, but nothing would surprise me these days.
Dont forget when you post something up on FB - you cease to own it - FB owns it. Pictures of you kids, your life story, who your friends are, what you do - all handed to FB on a silver platter. Would you give you life story and all those details to a total stranger who came to your door? And, should push come to shove, all this stuff can be used against you.
Be *very* careful about what you post.
People say - "hey my life is so trivial why would anyone care?"
Well simply that Satan will use anything against a believer he can, so if you make it *easy* for him to lock up as many christians as possible, youve done his job for him.....
Be smart, dont be paranoid, but be intelligent about what you post.
"The calculated assault on freedom of religious liberty in Australia is rapidly gaining pace with the focus in Tasmania where the Catholic Bishops of Australia now face formal action on the grounds that their defence of traditional marriage contravenes anti-discrimination law.
This action — an effort to deny the Catholic Church the right to ventilate its social and religious views on marriage as a union between a man and a woman — has become a test case. The issue is manifest: it is whether existing law and current public opinion can censor or partially silence the churches from full public expressions of their beliefs.
For Australia and its alleged open spirit of debate, this is an unprecedented situation. It reveals an aggressive secularism dressed in the moral cause of anti-discrimination justice but with a long-run agenda that seeks to transform our values and, ultimately, drive religion into the shadows. The vanguard for this drive is the same-sex marriage campaign.
The Tasmanian action before the state’s Anti-Discrimination Commission highlights what many parliamentarians and journalists have preferred to deny: that the campaign for same-sex marriage threatens to infringe the rights of the church and religious freedom. Sustained denials of this proposition by many pro same-sex marriage politicians are untenable given the evidence to the contrary."
I think Christians get blase about faith....where miracles from God become the everyday....
I also think that facebook has put a decent dent in FH site traffic - people spend a lot of time chasing things down the FB rabbit hole....FB is a huge time waster.....and count how many people you see staring at their rotten "dumb phones" all day.....I'm glad i dont own a dumb phone.
OK - testimony - God has delivered me time and again with employment - when times were tough, God provided employment that just popped out of the woodwork. The thing is, in terms of being able to say to people who say "it could have been conincidental" is scotched by mathematical probability. God provided employment at levels of 1,000,000 to 1 odds and only He and I knew about my situation, so its impossible to dispute that sort of deliverance.....
Alternatively, if you want to keep older IDE drives, you could put them in an older PC ( pre Win 10 ) and link them via network cable. Just make sure the network card in each computer is capable of at least 100 Mb/s and you are using Cat 5E cables.
I think non-pro versions of windows still support peer to peer cabled networking, but just not windows Domains.
"The U.N. climate conference in Paris is most likely humanity's last chance to thwart global environmental disaster, Pope Francis said on Monday, warning the world was "at the limits of suicide".
The pope, who wrote a major document on the environment last June, made the comment in an hour-long news conference aboard the plane returning him to Rome at the end of a six-day trip to Africa.
The freewheeling conversations have become a trademark of his papacy and the few times he takes direct questions from journalists.
Francis, who visited Kenya, Uganda and the Central African Republic, also said the continent was "a martyr of exploitation" by wealthy countries who lust after its natural resources and try to impose Western values instead of concentrating on development."

Please keep praying...he is getting rehab now, as his muscles have wasted away a fair bit, but we need lots of prayer to keep him on the mend.
Seems the expectation of when the elderly are put in a home its "end of the line", but he gets Lutheran fellowship as does my mum ( which was a nice surprise ), however my mum is faighting hard to get him the ammount of rehab he needs, so he can get out and about.
And please could you keep pray for his healing, especially his energy levels ( which are down ) and his speech ( which is much better but can ramble...) and also his muscle strength.....
"For we dare not make ourselves of the number, or compare ourselves with some that commend themselves: but they measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise." ( 2 Cor 10:12 )
If you think you are better than others, when you really aren’t, you are wrong.
Do your own work well, and then you will have something to be proud of.
But don’t compare yourself with others. ( Gal 6:3-4 )
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new”
Some things the celts did shocked the Romans, which really takes some doing.
This late Pastor Meyers ran http//www.lasttrumpetministries.org ( his son still runs it ) and he was a Witch, as was his parents and grandparents, but an old Christian lady wa spraying for him to be delievered. The ones who have the inside knowledge of the occult are the ones best placed to warn about it..........
Having been involved ( but no more, by Gods grace ) in the occult through Ouija boards, a lot of what the pastor wrote about resonated loudly with me, specifically the occult connections with halloween. The horse cart going up the hill by itself.....yep.
Satan is working very hard to make halloween a "thing" in australia now, but Australia is fast becoming a spiritual wasteland, so its ripe for it.
Regardless what people think - the Occult **can not** be controlled and its EXTREMELY DANGEROUS. Its like sticking 110V house power lead in your mouth and hoping it will only tickle...
Cindy, this isnt a go at anyone in particular - I'm just sounding a loud warning for people to be aware that Satan is the master of deception, and yes, I have no doubt that bad things do happen on halloween, as its a satanic high day.
Satan's master stroke is to get people to drop their guard....
