Days of the past

When I woke today, I had an issue that was on my mind.  I had paid my rent on the apartment using bill pay from my bank, I knew better but I still was trying to use services that were provided.  I do not use paper checks, do not believe in them.  We had a holiday, so the delivery was moved around by the bank in the processing.  Well it was a sizable value and I know the three day rule of the apartments lease.  The check had cleared the bank but not delivered as of yesterday, today when the mail was delivered, my check was delivered and I was sitting in the office.  I was so relieved.

I had to purchase a new printer this morning, the old one for some reason had a failure code of 97 and I could not find the problem.  I got a cheap HP but full function, heck it even has its own email.  I guess I can go online 1000 miles away and go on line and print at home.  What is this world coming to, a machine with an email.

Now, as I do this, I have Elvis on YouTube doing his Gospel songs.  He for sure was good at that, of course I guess it did not pay as well as Rock n Roll.  I saw one of his concerts once in 1976 in Omaha, NE, the same year that I joined the Navy.

Days of the past…miss those days but life moves on for the good or bad.

I am encouraged in life

Joshua 1-9 comments supporting the verse.

6Be strong and of a good courage: for unto this people shalt thou divide for an inheritance the land, which I sware unto their fathers to give them. 7Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper whithersoever thou goest. 8This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success. 9Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest. 10Then Joshua commanded the officers of the people, saying, 11Pass through the host, and command the people, saying, Prepare you victuals; for within three days ye shall pass over this Jordan, to go in to possess the land, which the LORD your God giveth you to possess it. 12And to the Reubenites, and to the Gadites, and to half the tribe of Manasseh, spake Joshua, saying,

The reason that I present this here today is I found a challenge coin with the direction indicated.

Joshua 1-9

Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.

I like the encouragement as give here.  This is based on the KJ version. My God so encourage me.

It is cool, some rain later

The weather currently is cool, low to mid 50s, later tonight it is predicted to be 10%, 20%, and 30% chance of rain.  Later in the week it is predicted to drop to 29° F, I have not heard of any rain that day.  I am happy that I have two garages to place my vehicles in out of the weather.  I hate to have clean the windshield before I can drive.  Sure it cost more but the benefit is awesome.

I was in a few stores this morning and they are loading up on Christmas items.  We have a Thanksgiving holiday later this month and the Friday afterwards which may be a day off it the Black Friday when shopping is crazy.  I went to one once and never will I ever do that again.  You almost need combat gear to buy something.

It is cool, some rain later, maybe.

Locomotion

My TV for tonight has been laid to sleep, I am about to move in that direction also.  I am getting my locomotion in gear and begin my migration toward that creature called a bed.  I call it a creature because it really does not treat me right, but again, I am getting used to that also from so many sources.

I remember the song of many years past, “Locomotion”.  I use to enjoy hearing it but I never tried to dance to it.

Another fades away

Another day fades away into the late evening and early morning of the next day.  What shall it bring to our lives?  I see much of the same myself, It will be nice and dry, a typical Sunday morning when various congregations will gather their members for the teaching of the truth based on their religions.  Others will receive their teachings via the television or self-study by reading and study.

Another fades away.
