1888- THE NEW AMERICAN GIGOLO
Okay- let’s talk.
Before I forget let me finish a note on one of the pictures I posted last night [Facebook].
I posted an old pic from a fellowship we had at a ranch in Bishop- at Eli’s house.
The reason I have posted some of these blurry pics- taken from a very old cell phone- is because they have friends in the pics who have died and I will never get any new pics from them.
In this photo there was a shot of Shelby- who passed away a few years back.
Henry was also there- these are my friends from the streets of Corpus Christi- and the Bishop fellowship was one of the few times that the 2 different groups met- one group from the old days in Kingsville/Bishop- when we had our little home church.
And the later days- the guys who I now work with each week- the homeless guys.
Part of the note that got cut off was one night I was driving Homer home- he was Eli’s- Bebe’s and Rudy’s dad.
They all came to the church.
And Homer told me how happy he was to see all his boys in church.
I am still in touch with these Kingsville/Bishop guys- some are on the site [Facebook].
I plan on making a trip soon [so if you guys are reading- let me know the best day- I’ll bring a few street guys].
Okay- that finished that.
I also had one of those strange experiences.
The other day while I was praying for all the different guys- I also prayed about the ‘jail’ ministry.
For many years I used to preach at the county jails in Kingsville.
When I moved to Corpus- I tried to get in at the one here- but they had certain rules that made it hard for me to get in.
I usually do stuff like that thru the name of our ministry- corpuschristioutreachministries.
But this time they wanted me to go thru another church- so it didn’t work out.
I left it at that- I mean I still have plenty of other guys to work with.
So- as I was praying I asked the lord if he wanted me to get more involved- then he would have to show me.
It was only a day or 2 and I got the letter from my friend in prison- in N.J.
So I felt this might be an open door.
I mentioned that I was suspired to get a letter from Jersey- and the next morning I wrote a post and ‘unwittingly’ titled it I KNEW A LITTLE GREEK.
Just a play on words [the post is a few back- I was talking about the Greek language].
Later in the day I realized that this buddy who just wrote me- he is the only Greek friend I have!
So- that was cool too [you know- the first letter in years- just happened to be the only Greek guy I know].
Okay- let me quote another verse from Isaiah-
‘Behold- I create new heavens and a new earth- the former shall not be remembered nor come into mind- be glad and rejoice forever in that which I create’.
This verse is also found in the book of Revelation.
Here in Isaiah God is speaking about a new future for his people- a time of restoration.
God’s people went thru years of struggle and hardship- and he is telling them ‘look- those days are now over- yeah- they served a purpose- a lot of it was stuff you reaped from making bad decisions- and to put it bluntly- sinning and messing up. But no more- this is a new time- rejoice- be glad- this is a new season’.
For those of you who need it- just take it- no charge!
And I’ll end with the tragic news event.
Yeah- I’m sure you have all heard- Romney kills women [to my less astute political readers- I kid.]
Yeah- Obama’s people put out an ad- I watched it.
It sounded very sincere- the guy said he worked for the company that Romney’s firm eventually shut down.
He then said ‘when Romney shut us down- I lost my insurance- soon after my wife died of cancer- we had no more insurance thanks to Romney’.
Now- by just watching the ad- you would have thought that the guy’s insurance covered his wife- and thanks to Romney- the lady died.
The truth is- the lady was not covered by the husband’s ins.- she had her own.
When the guy got fired- his wife still had insurance.
She finally lost hers- and later- 6 years later [after Romney left the company] the lady got sick and died.
I mean if you want to blame somebody- why not the employer who she worked for?
This whole thing is stupid- they now found out that this guy also did another ad for Obama.
That’s a big no no.
The latest ad was by one of the super pacs- and the actual campaigns are not allowed to co-ordinate with the super pacs.
It looks like the Obama people might have screwed this one up- big time.
I also liked the other Romney story I read the other day.
Some guy smashed his wife’s lap top.
He saw a picture of Romney on her Facebook page- and thought she was a ‘cheatin’
on him [he did not know who Romney was].
Yeah- he hit her and broke the computer- all because of that darn home wrecker- Romney.
Wow- he kills women with cancer- he wreaks havoc in homes- homes he has never been in.
Yeah- that Romney is some piece of work- a reincarnation of the American Gigolo- way to go Romney- way to go.
Note- Do me a favor, those who read/like the posts- re-post them on other sites as well as the site you read them on. Thanks- John. Don’t forget to scroll down on the timeline [Facebook] - I have posted lots.
