I am at home right now recovering from Covid . I just spent 5 days in the hospital. my wife and I both came down with it at the same time. Kim's encounter was what I thought it would be like. However, that was not the case for me.no is the answer to the question you are wondering and waiting for. Nope neither of us got any shots.
My wonderful friend , and my doctor told me months ago to get the shot. I am older, not skinny, and had pneumonia twice . This makes its much more dangerous.
All of us are still very confused about all the information we hear. The ER doc that worked with me me the other night has not taken any vaccinations. Many medical people in the hospital told me the same. Why? They fear the long range complications that will show up in the near future.
Our son is a navel aviator and several TOPGUN pilots have become sick after getting shots and these young studs are in the prime of their lives! As a doctor, I have had several patients tell stories of healthy family members now having heart issues weeks after injection!
I decided not to take the shot. I would take my chances. I don't know what would or would not happen if I would have taken the shot. Even then a 3 in 1 chance of picking the best one for me. I might have had a heart attack and died three hours later as was reported yesterday on the news.
I am not and will not lead a parade and saying don't be stupid like me! I have always listened to my own heart and would advise you to do the same.
However when I could not catch my breath, I laid there wondering if I had not made a fatal error. Two nights I went off to sleep with tears running down my face saying that simple childlike prayer.... now I lay me down to sleep. I wondered if they would find me cold as a popsicle in a hour or so.
I am home now and I am tired , puny, and weak. I was given such wonderful care from the staff from memorial hospital.
I about their families and goals, and dreams. They are are exhausted and weary as the fight and face this every single day!
But guys, this is gonna sound weird but I would go through it again tomorrow because there were so many blessings hidden in my hospital stay and even now. Yes I am behind the eight ball money wise and will take a while to dig out but I would not trade that cash because you see it might have saved my life.
In that hospital through prayer love and support felt more at peace than I have in years. I will save for another time but had a miracle while there. I believe in God and read my bible every day but i had drifted and was just going through the motions and I lost my first love Jesus!
This illness has restored my soul! This will make me a better man, husband, boss and father! Life had to be interrupted for me so I could reset my compass.
In 3 months, I intend to get the PFIZER shots. I will not tell you what to do. I do want To recommend you give your life to Jesus. God sent his son to help us daily and give us hope in this crazy world getting worse each hour! There is no doubt in my mind his precious red blood will keep you alive forever if you accept him as both Lord and Savior.
By the way, I was discharged around noon on 8/28 and Romans 8:28 is one of my favorite verses!
As you come up our drive and after you cross the small creek,you pass between two field stone
pillars that match the stones on our home. There is a light atop both of them . Right now, one is green and the the side is white. The green light is to show support for all the people who serve our military as well
as those who have done so in the past.
At Christmas i hang white lights along the 4 rail horse fence. We change the white one to red and
The entryway is good to go. The placement of the red and green has a reason behind it as well.
It may seem to be be random but Iassure you is not the case.
On a plane the red light is always on the left side and the green is on the right side. green and right both
have 5 letters and this was how I was taught to remember as a boy. This applies to boats as well.
Our oldest son, Josh, is a navel aviator. He and his wonderful wife , Christina, are a week or two from going
to Japan. They have lived in several places over the last few years. They lived in Fallon Nevada
most recently and we were blessed to have all of our boys and their girls under our roof and together
Since they aproached our farm from the west the right light was green and the left one was on the left
came home. When they were out east in Va it was the reversed. Japan is on the other side of the world
so I am not sure what I will do. I have not stepped it off but am told it is about as far east to west as it is
west to east.
God is a concerned loving Father who loves you so much! He has made a way for you to come
home through his son Jesus. The porch light of heaven is on . You have a green light my friend.
Because of the red blood of Jesus ,your sins are forgiven . Your approach is cleared as well as all your sins.
As far as the east is from the west,so far has removed our transgressions from us.
Yesterday I went out to check on the horses. It has again been vey hot here of late and a daily chore
to top off the water troughs will cool clear water.As I make my rounds the horses ususlly get excited when they hear the sound of our old red ATV. Because this vehicle usally has horse feeds as well as carrots, we c call it "Chuck" short for chuck wagon .
There is a mare and two young ones in the south pasture. I whistled and they did not come. I banged on the
red tubes on the gate with the scooper. It makes a sound that sounds like a hillbilly dinner bell. I had seen them the evening before and knew they were ok. I surmised they had found a place with a breeze and had it made in the shade.
I set the bright orange bucket filled with feed and carrots in front of the gate. This bucket was a physical reminder for me to "lets do this later". I had some mowing to do and that filled several hours of the afternoon. I kept looking down at the water tank seeing they had not yet drank from it and for the first time became a little concerned.
I went down to the gate and did the two tone whistle my dad taught me. I do this in honor of him and have taught my sons to do the same. They all would turn and prick up their earsand know it was me if I did this even in a crowd.
I banged again on the gate and in no time flat heard the three of them flat out running as hard as they could
go. They seemed happy to see me and even more to see Chuck .They were breathing heavy as they devoured their snacks.
My friend I believe God is calling all of us. As we read Scripture, we learn he calls us all differently . Many people tell me after I speak that I missed my calling. I would quite my practice and enroll in seminary school tomorrow if I felt in my heart that is what God wanted for me. I answered my "call to the see" many years ago. I love the interaction I have with patients for the most part. I never would have believed God would and could could use me to write these stories for his glory.
He has blended and used the very things I love and hold dear such as horses, hunting , and rivers . I am often very surprised at how stories and lessons come together in such a way that I know it is not me but him working through me. Here is the exciting part, he wants to do the same with you. You may not be called to write or do eyes but you are being called . What do you do that gives you joy and satisfaction? There is your best clue in regard to what God is calling you to do.
I pray that at times this website feeds you. I write for all God's people and not just those who gather under the steeple. All I know is when I do this with the hope of pleasing my Savior, it just feels so "write"!
Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things
you do not know. Jeremiah 33:3
When you empty yourself, God rushes in.
For the man who prays in his heart ,the whole world is a church.
