Celebrating Veterans Day
Around the World
Britain, France, Australia and Canada also
commemorate the veterans of World Wars
I and II on or near November 11th: Canada
has Remembrance Day, while Britain has
Remembrance Sunday (the second Sunday
of November). In Europe, Britain and the
Commonwealth countries it is common to
observe two minutes of silence at 11 a.m.
every November 11.
In the United States, an official wreath-laying ceremony is held each Veterans Day
at the Tomb of the Unknowns in Arlington National Cemetery, while parades and
other celebrations are held in states around the country. Veterans Day is not to be
confused with Memorial Day–a common misunderstanding, according to the U.S.
Department of Veterans Affairs. Memorial Day (the fourth Monday in May)
honors American service members who died in service to their country or as a
result of injuries incurred during battle, while Veterans Day pays tribute to all
American veterans–living or dead–but especially gives thanks to living veterans
who served their country honorably during war or peacetime.
Veterans Stats
The brave men and women who serve and protect the U.S. come from all walks of
life; they are parents, children and grandparents. They are friends, neighbors and
coworkers, and an important part of their communities. Here are some facts about
the current veteran population of the United States:
1. There are approximately 23.2 million military veterans in the United States.
2. 9.2 million Veterans are over the age of 65.
3. 1.9 million Veterans are under the age of 35.
4. 1.8 million Veterans are women.
5. 7.8 million Veterans served during the Vietnam War era (1964-1975), which
represents 33% of all living veterans.
6. 5.2 million Veterans served during the Gulf War (representing service from
Aug. 2, 1990, to present).
7. 2.6 million Veterans served during World War II (1941-1945).
8. 2.8 million Veterans served during the Korean War (1950-1953).
9. 6 million veterans served in peacetime.
10. As of 2008, 2.9 million veterans received compensation for service-connected
11. 5 states have more than 1 million veterans in among their population:
California (2.1 million), Florida (1.7 million), Texas (1.7 million), New York
(1 million) and Pennsylvania (1 million).
Pray for all our military Leaders and
Forces daily, for guidance in all
decisions and protection when the
orders are carried out. Their service
and sacrifice allows us the great
privilege of worshipping together and
enjoying the freedoms we have in our
great country, which is something we
are in danger of having taken away
from us. Take the time to call/visit a
Veteran and thank them for all they
have done. Send a card to someone on
active duty. Remember their families
at home…….. They are waiting and
praying for their loved ones too.

Pastor David has been telling us this past year of his belief of the imminent return of the Lord. He has given us examples of events happening in
seven year intervals, the significance of the events and the scripture which
supports all the signs. This year as we celebrate the first Advent, Christ’s
birth, let’s anticipate and celebrate the second Advent, His return for his
bride, His children. As we long for his return we must remember that
judgment is not for sinners alone, we as Christians, will be judged and
held accountable for what we have done for Him and for what we haven’t
done for Him. Come Immanuel, come and deliver your people. We have
Hope, Peace, Joy and Love…..knowing that Christ is the light of the world.

(Joh 3:16) For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish,
but have everlasting life. (:17) For God sent not his Son into the world
to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
(3:18) He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth
not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the
only begotten Son of God. (3:19) And this is the condemnation, that light
is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because
their deeds were evil. (3:20) For every one that doeth evil hateth the light,
neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. (3:21) But
he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God. (3:22) After these things came Jesus
and his disciples into the land of Judaea; and there he tarried with them,
and baptized. (3:23) And John also was baptizing in Aenon near to Salim,
because there was much water there: and they came, and were baptized.
(3:24) For John was not yet cast into prison. (3:25) Then there arose a
question between some of John's disciples and the Jews about purifying.
(3:26) And they came unto John, and said unto him, Rabbi, he that was
with thee beyond Jordan, to whom thou barest witness, behold, the same
baptizeth, and all men come to him. (3:27) John answered and said, A
man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven. (3:28) Ye
yourselves bear me witness, that I said, I am not the Christ, but that I am
sent before him. (3:29) He that hath the bride is the bridegroom: but the
friend of the bridegroom, which standeth and heareth him, rejoiceth
greatly because of the bridegroom's voice: this my joy therefore is fulfilled.
(3:30) He must increase, but I must decrease. (3:31) He that cometh
from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of
the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all. (3:32) And what he
hath seen and heard, that he testifieth; and no man receiveth his testimony. (3:33) He that hath received his testimony hath set to his seal that
God is true. (3:34) For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of
God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him. (3:35) The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand.
(3:36) He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he
that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of
God abideth on him.
The most quoted verse in the bible, John 3:16; “ For God SO loved the
world that he gave HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN son”…. And then John 3:36,
He that believeth have everlasting life: and he that believeth not shall not
see life; but the wrath of God. We are presented with two choices; belief
that results in truly living, now and forever, or disobedience that has you
living under the wrath of God, now and forever. If we believe, trust, obey
and walk with the Lord daily we receive our inheritance, Love, Joy,
Peace…. Or we can continue to be filled with emptiness, depression, hurt,
anger, pain and death, and separation from God and His grace.
WHAT AM I THANKFUL FOR: Well, do you have all day.… First and
foremost, is for my salvation and second is for Barry, and I am thankful
for my precious Godly Mother and Mother-in-law, my grandparents,
brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews, friends, church, church family ...you
kinda get where I’m going, yep, people, many who are no longer with me,
but I will see them again when the Lord returns and takes me to my new
home. I am also thankful for my health, or my lack of good health,
because through it the Lord gave me Barry. I’ll try to make this short…..
Unknown to me, Barry and some of his family and friends had been praying for several years for a wife for him... (I later found out my sister had
also been praying for a husband for me.) As I was recuperating from
aneurysm surgery at my sister Nancy’s home, she kept tying to get me to
move to Charlotte with her. I kept telling her that I had to go home, that
the Lord was telling me that that was where I needed to be, Newdale. She
got a little mad at me for coming home, since I had no immediate family
up here, but she got over it. And later, while still taking it easy at my
home, I started listening to CD’s of the Church services from “my old
home church”, and soon started coming back to church (that is another
story for a later time). Didn’t take Mr. Barry long to ask me to go eat with
him and some of his friends, who I just also happened to know. And the
rest is history...The Lord gave me another family, the McKinney’s, who I
am so thankful for. Little did I know why I had to come back home to
A brief excerpt from David’s blessing at our wedding:
“You will have laughter and you will have tears, but you will bear
each others burden, and the joy of the Lord will be your strength. Your
life together will be a blessing and an inspiration to others who are
hurting. You will work together in the kingdom and your gifts will
compliment each other in the ministry God has prepared for you, both
inside and outside the church. Be ready and open for new opportunities to glorify Him for He has surprises in store for you…...God has
chosen you to show His faithfulness, His love, and the power of His
I am so thankful He was faithful and gave me Barry. I am also
thankful for what the Lord has done, what He hasn’t, what He will
do, and what He won’t. He knows best:
(Jer 29:11) For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the
LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
Jesus is our lifeguard and he can walk on the water!
Sin knocks a hole in your bucket of joy!
There is no measurement for darkness, just a measurement for how much
light exists.
Every Minister ought to know that if the prayer meetings are neglected, all his
labors are in vain.
The greater the difficulty, the more glory surrounding it.
No nation can rise higher than the character of its people.
You might not be interested in politics, but you can be sure that politics is
interested in you!
If you are born once, you shall die twice, but if you are born twice, you die
only once.
If you want the knowledge of God's kingdom to spread, then start spreading it
Humility is so shy, that if you begin talking about it, it disappears.
It seems that the Supreme court has handed down the eleventh commandment,
"Thou shall not read, in any classroom, the first ten!"
Even if we can't have all we want, we ought to be thankful God doesn't give us
the penalty of all our sin!
We live in desperate times, yet the church is not yet desperate in prayer!
Watch your thoughts; they become words.
Watch your words; they become actions.
Watch your actions; they become habits.
Watch your habits; they become character.
Watch your character; it becomes destiny.
God looks at how many we serve, not how many servants we have!
The Bible is one of the worlds oldest books and the author is still living!
Dear God, I have a problem, it's Me.
As a child of God, prayer is kind of like calling home everyday.
He who dies with the most toys is still dead.
Have a great day because 'The SON' is shining and HE can certainly use you!
Coincidence is when God chooses to remain anonymous.
Don't put a question mark where God put a period.
To make a difference in the world, let Jesus make a difference in you.
Love your enemy, it will confuse them!
The 10 commandments are not multiple choice.
The rapture is the separation of church and state.
The good Lord didn't create anything without a purpose, but mosquitoes come

We’ve so much to thank GOD
1. It’s really nice to wake up in the morning realizing that God
gave us another day to live.
2. For changing our lives.
3. For blessing us much more than we deserve.
4. For not giving up on us.
5. For keeping us together when we fall apart.
6. For being there for us, never leaving us and always loving us.
7. For life and all that’s in it…..for the day, for the hour, and the
8. For giving us a chance to live with a purpose.
9. For all we have.
10. For loving us even though we’re not perfect.
11. For what you have done, are doing and continue to do for us.
12. For being there when nobody else was.
13. For being bigger than anything we will face.
14. For your Son, Jesus, for your sacrifice, Love and Compassion
and your promise.
15. For being in control.
16. For the roof over our head, food to eat, friends and family,

18. For Your word.
19. For Miracles.

Thank you God, for everything!!!!!
If the only prayer you said
In your whole life was,
“thank you”, that would
(Php 3:7) But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ.
(:8) Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the
knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all
things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ, (:9) And be found
in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which
is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:
Paul, the disciple
(:10) That I may know him, and the power of
his resurrection, and the fellowship of his
sufferings, being made conformable unto his
death; (:11) If by any means I might attain
unto the resurrection of the dead. (:12) Not
as though I had already attained, either were
already perfect: but I follow after, if that I
may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus. (:13) Brethren, I
count not myself to have apprehended: but
this one thing I do, forgetting those things
which are behind, and reaching forth unto
those things which are before, (:14) I press
toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
(3:15) Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in any
thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you. (:16)
Nevertheless, whereto we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule,
let us mind the same thing. (:17) Brethren, be followers together of me, and
mark them which walk so as ye have us for an ensample. (:18) (For many
walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they
are the enemies of the cross of Christ: (:19) Whose end is destruction, whose
God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.)
(:20) For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the
Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: (:21) Who shall change our vile body, that it
may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working
whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.
“Hear” we go again, me and my song lyrics...again I have scripture (above) to
go with them. The first song, Knowing You Jesus.....we can all be thankful
that we have the opportunity to know him and that his love for us is free. All
that other stuff that we think is necessary is really worthless. It is so simple,
just let all the other stuff go and have one desire, to know Jesus more, better
and to have a closer relationship with Him. As the time of his return is getting
nearer, our one desire should be to get as close to God as possible and to share
his light and love with everyone we can.
I love you Lord, what better way to: (Psa 100:4) Enter into his gates with
thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and
bless his name. What sweeter sound could there be for Him to hear than, “I
Love You Lord”. Tell Him daily you love Him and thank Him for His Grace.
Knowing You Jesus
Written by: Graham Kendrick
All I once held dear and built my life upon,
All this world reveres and wars to own
All I once thought gain, I have counted lost
Spent and worthless now compared to this
Knowing You Jesus, Knowing You, there is no greater thing
You’re my all, you’re the best you’re my joy, my righteousness
You’re my all, you’re the best you’re my joy, my righteousness
You’re my all, you’re the best you’re my joy, my righteousness
I love you Lord….
Now my hearts desire is to know you more
to be found in you and known as yours,
to possess by faith what I could not earn
all surpassing gift of righteousness,
Oh, to know the power of your risen life
And to know You in Your sufferings
To become like You in Your death, Oh Lord
So with You to live and never die
Knowing You, Jesus, Knowing You there is no greater thing
You are my all, you are the best, you are my joy and my righteousness,
and I love you Lord
I Love You Lord
Writer/Composer: Laurie B. Klein
I Love You Lord, and I lift my voice

take joy my king in what you hear,
may it be a sweet, sweet, sound in your ear
I love you Lord and I lift my voice
to worship you Oh my soul, rejoice,
take joy My King, in what you hear,

There wasn’t a lot of technology news this month, as after a second stay in the hospital
I am still on the mend, and barring a mighty move of God it appears surgery is in my
future. But enough about that…let’s get on to other matters.
I don’t think I have ever written anything even close to an op-ed piece in my life…but
I guess there’s a first time for everything. There’s an issue that I have been thinking
about and considering for a long time, and I pray I can find the words to express my
thoughts and opinions about it in a way that is understandable and makes sense.
There has been no technological advancement that has changed the functioning of this
planet more than the Internet. Not television, not radio, not even telephone. Practically
any of us that are old enough to remember life before the Internet longs for the
simplicity of the time before dot com became a household phrase. But the reality is
that it’s here and it isn’t going anywhere, and its reach and scope is advancing faster
than we can imagine.
We think of the Internet as www something or other, as email, Facebook, Twitter,
Instagram, Pinterest and other “apps.” But what would happen if the Internet suddenly
shut off today? There are some people who don’t have an Internet connection in their
home or don’t have a computer/Smartphone/tablet that may think that it wouldn’t
really bother them much since they don’t participate in those activities. The truth is
that these aspects of the Internet are just a small part of its overall function. If the
Internet stopped today there would most likely be mass destruction, death of possibly
millions, rioting, looting, carnage, and the list goes on. The result would be unimaginable. It has nothing to do with anger that social media apps aren’t functioning, Skype
or the www isn’t working, or your email isn’t getting through.
The Internet is an infrastructure, just like the electric grid or the phone company. It
travels around the globe primarily through fiber optic lines that carries the data using
light. Your money, bank accounts, credit/debit card transactions, practically every
worldwide financial action travels by IP (Internet Protocol). Merchandise supply lines,
manufacturing, land and sea shipping, worldwide communications, food distribution,
health care, are all are connected directly to the Internet. You would have no power,
no way to purchase food (or food to purchase), no communication, no money except
for cash on hand, little access to health care. Basically it boils down to the fact that life
as we see it today would cease to exist. And it wouldn’t take a complete shutdown to
wreak havoc…just a small outage would be enough to cause catastrophic problems.
Whether or not you have an Internet connected computer or phone doesn’t matter.
Unless you live isolated from the electric grid, grow all your own food, produce all
your own seed and fertilizer, make you own tools, mill your own lumber, grind your
own meal and flour, and transact only with cash or barter, you are connected in some
way to the Internet.
The bottom line is the Internet is here, it’s vast, and it’s powerful. There are hundreds
of millions of people directly connected, and billions are affected by its reach. And
when you think about it, how many of those who are directly connected don’t know
Jesus? And the most important question is, how many are YOU ministering to?
Stay tuned for part 2 next month. …………………. Jesus Loves You, Barry
