Single or married?

Regardless what race, creed or color of your skin it comes down to this:

Single or married?

If your married there is lots to do. Plus there are hundreds of discounts available. Lets look at a few shall we?

Discounts at theme parks like Cedar Point, Six Flags or at any number of Disney parks.
Discounts for cruises
Perhaps discounts for hotel rooms
Family afternoon/night at movies
Father-son events
Father-daughter dances

The above is only a few. But what about those who are single or divorced?

Divorce support group
Bowling leagues
Softball teams
Single parents events

                                                              But wait! STOP THE PRESSES!

                        There has to be more for singles right?

Several years ago several Christian had a Friday or Saturday night event. We would get together at some ones house or apartment to watch Christian movies. In time this faded into the sunset like a good Indiana Jones movie.

Lets take a look at churches: How many events and or classes does your place of worship have for singles?

per week?

per month?

per year?

Does it seem that every sermon is direct towards the “family?” Or hints are given to singles that go something like this, “for those who are single, you’ll need this in case you ever get married.”

Lets face the fact: to be single/divorced means you are part of a minority. Of course certain people would/will deny that statement. Yet we all know its true. But, is there hidden benefits to being single? The answer is yes!

Tom Cruise showed us in the movie Top Gun: Yes its nice to run around the house in your underwear.It sure saves on the laundry bill.
Food; you only have to cook for one. Better yet TV dinners have just the right portion and there are no left overs.
Having more time for ministry work or Bible studies.

Yes there are down sides to being single. But that is a situation that many singles work out for themselves as time proceeds forward.

Regardless how much your single a person must not forget that s/he always has one friend for all eternity, “This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you. Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. These things I command you, that ye love one another.” John 15: 12-17

In closing remember the following whether in the pulpit or not

Single people

are

as human as those who are married.

“Good Day!”

Allow me to ask you a question, then I will proceed; Do you remember a radio announcer by the name of Paul Harvey?   I know I sure do!  Just as a refresher here are a few quotes you may remember:

Sometimes we can get so caught-up in the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season that we forget something ever so simple. Christmas does not have to be high-tech. In fact it is about as low tech as you can get. And yet, well this may seem sappy and even Biblical but where along the line did society, as a whole, forget about, “our brothers keeper.”

As a Christian I see people in my church helping one another just like a family does. Yet, there is two parts of society that often seems to get neglected #1 those who are single and maybe with no family and #2 those who are in prisons both locally and globally.

Are we really our brothers keeper? or is that basic of basic principals gone down the ways of floppy disks and software no longer apt to keep-up with an ever changing world?

Im no sure if Paul Harvey was a simple man, and he may very well was. I would like to think he was one part of society, just like my church, who….knew how to be a “brothers keeper.” Instead of all the fighting and protests thats going on. Maybe one should ask a friend or neighbor, “can I be your brothers keeper?”

Believe it or not the principle of our brothers keeper ought to ring loud not just at Christmas time. Instead it ought to ring 365.4 days a year all over this place we call earth.

I bet you thought this entry was in regards to some store hawking their goods right?

Gotcha!

What this is about is you clearing out unwanted emails

emailbord

As you may know, not all email is spam!  Some email comes your way from various places.  Example: when I recently moved I was getting mail from seemingly every corner of the globe; and im not just talking about email. All of which I was glad to receive as it provided ideas how to fix up my little corner of this place called Earth.

Now you know that companies X, Y,and Z will send mail for a limited time. And to cut their losses they will discontinue sending you their material out of cost cutting measures. That is how they operate using the postal system.

Email is different. To companies X,Y and Z email is a freebie. Thus, they have nothing to lose as long as you or your email provider does not declare it as spam. To stop getting email from just about any company look down at the bottom of their email. In very small print you ought to see the word, “unsubscribe.”   Click on that word and you should no longer receive that companies email within a weeks time. If after seven working days you continue to receive their material then you can classify it as spam.

Just how often does yours truly clean up his email ? Normally, it comes down to twice a year. But I make sure its done in the last two weeks in December, mostly because I like to have a clean slate going into January.

Word to the wise

I maintain three mail accounts: one for my friends, my Gmail account for 98% of Google related material and my third strictly for business which gets a once over before deleting. How many email accounts should you have? The answer is simple; whatever you are comfortable with. If you can handle only one that’s okay too.

I now return you to your favorite shopping location.

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ONE AND ALL

PS

Never do the following #1 never give anyone you work with your personal email address, not even your  boss! Give them a different email address. #2 Never give out your password(s) not even to your spouse, family members and so forth.

See you in 2015

happy new year 003

 

Housing Update

For some readers this is a much needed entry.

Late last year yours truly wound up losing a place to live through various lies.
Since then I have been living on God’s good grace staying a month or two at a Christians home. All the while waiting to buy my very first house I can afford in the Holly Michigan area. The biggest issue is money since I am on disability and NOT eligible for low income housing.
So as June 2014 approaches I continue to live on God’s good grace.

Just a note here to my dear readers and friends.
If you are so inclined to assist and would like more information please contact Faith City church in Fenton Michigan at 1-810-750-2200 And ask how you can help David Liebler  and his housing issue.

Thank you for spending a little time today with…..Littlethunder.

Where are you?

The following is true. Names have not been changed to protect any person alive or dead.

I was not born with the name I have now. In reality I was born on July 27 1953 in Norman Oklahoma as David Rushlow. I don’t remember anything about my real mother except that she must have cared about life to make sure I was born. I heard tell had I had grandparents in the Rose City Michigan area but I would not know is only hearsay.

The people who adopted me said hey “loved me” but when their little boy turned out to be the “black sheep” in the family they kicked me out of the house at the age of twelve. Never to live under their roof again. When I tried to reconcile with them in 2005 they again kicked me, and my Christian friend I was with, out the door.

                  Of all the things I have on my “Bucket List” there is only one thing I would want the most…..

To meet and spend time with my biological family once and for all.
Where are you mom, dad?
