Vote…You Should Vote

Posted by Pete | Posted in News | Posted on 19-10-2020

Vote….even though it may be a selfish vote, you have to excise that right. The “old adage that if you are not for me you are against me” is correct. Even if you feel like neither candidate is worth voting for and feel the need to skip the top office, vote for the lower offices that you feel you can vote for. The top job this year, in my humble opinion, remains in God’s hand. I think he wants us to do what we feel is true and correct, yet all of us know that He is in control and it will turn out exactly as it is suppose to in matters of the world and events leading up to the end times. People say all the time that the USA is referred to in the bible in the later, final years of the world. I’m not sure we are on that point. Some say we are a Christian nation backing Israel and are counted with them. Maybe we are.  But I just wonder if we fall so far from grace that we do not count in the end times, count as a world power I mean. But whatever the reason, if we are or are not, we will be counted and we will experience the end times as the bible recounts and in full measure. I think God would want us to vote and vote along party lines, i.e., for God or for Satan. If some proclaim breaking God’s laws is one of the things we are voting for, those issues becomes what the believer must vote against….. Yeah, I know, some of you are going to argue with that, but really, God’s law are not up for vote. They are still in place and will remain in place…… How can we ignore them?  Vote for God’s laws.

The Time is Right…

Jesus ascended into heaven, many, many, years ago promising to return at a later date and stating, quite frankly that no one would know the day of His return. I do not know when. All the preachers of the gospel do not know when. But he did give us signs and told us to watch for those signs, so that we may know when that day is near. I have read those signs. And for many years folks have said it is close, the time is near was proclaimed even when I was a young man. At eighty four, folks are still saying exactly that…..But now, with this virus thing, it’s taking us places and into stuff we have never seen before, probably much like the Black Plague in earlier times. I don’t know about you folks, but I’m of the opinion that the time is right for His return…..I’m getting ready…I hope you’ll get ready if you are not yet prepared for His return. We all are going to die and be resurrected and then live forever. There are two destinations after death, Heaven and Hell. You gotta choose now which yours will be. I have asked Him to forgive my sorry soul of my sins and to save me from that eternal Hell that is spoken of in the bible and to take me to be with Him in Glory. You also have to decide….. I hope you will also chose Heaven.

 

Helen Hester May 1938 – October 2020

French’s Funeral Home Obituary Helen Hester shows the story of my Sweetie.  I had so much trouble trying to post it on my web site that I gave up trying. She was a beautiful wife, a wonderful mother and a very dear friend. She is being missed by a whole bunch of folks….and most of all by me, her number one fan. And the title of the song is, for me anyway, “You Are Always On My Mind”. Precious Lady……

Did You Know?….

Did you know that when I was a sales manager for a company and making sales calls, especially to those companies that we did not serve but wanted their business…whatever the outcome of my call on them, I would write a memo, dressing it up in as much bs as possible without turning off my bosses. And that is part of the reason I wanted to write, just really feeling like I could. Then when the heart doctor said to me I believe we can add at least another 5 years to your life by having by-pass surgery I understood that my time on earth had it’s limitations. During my recovery I prayed that God would let me write….and paint…things that I had wanted to do and had never done and was not trained in either. I forgot to ask God to let me be good at it. That was in October, 1997. Thank you Lord….Thank you Doctor….I have written twelve novels and several short stories and have painted so many pictures and rocks that I cannot count. I don’t really know how many. I have a web site that I pay for and let people come and read some of those stories for free. I give away the painting to those that have asked for them, rocks and canvas, especially to people on my block, and some who came by our garage sales. No training except what I picked up here and there, so what God freely gave to me, I have tried to give to others. Mailing stuff cost so much money anymore that is hard for me to pay for sending stuff out. This morning I wanted to say that I was inspired by my writing sales memos to my bosses who were probably wondering “what the heck is this guy was so wordy about” and it kick started me to wanting to write. How about you? Has God inspired you to something? If he has I encourage you to first pray about it and if God gives you a go…..well, do it my friends…do it. Have a great day.

Pro Football…and It’s Future

Posted by Pete | Posted in Downloads, News | Posted on 15-09-2020

I cannot say for sure that pro football has hurt itself by all the goings on this year and last. I’m reasonably sure it did not help itself. There are too many of us veterans who believe in America, the flag and our form of government to mess with our national anthem. You know, black lives do matter. All lives matter. Protesting is just as American as football. But you don’t dishonor our flag and our country by kneeling when it has been understood for years that standing was honoring our nation. Protest before. Protest after. Do not protest during. Tim Tebow was kneeing a few years ago and everyone had a fit, but that wasn’t during the anthem and he was praying. Pray before the game. Pray after the game. Even kneel and pray during the game if you can. Stand during the National Anthem. If you don’t, it may not ruin pro football but I can guarantee you it ain’t gonna help your cause or the cause of pro football ticket sales or TV  advertising. As soon as I saw the players kneeling before the Cowboys/Rams game, I changed channels. As soon as I saw the kneeling before the Bronco’s/Titan game I changed channels.  If there was kneeling at the Saints/Tampa Bay game I did not see it so I watched some of it but not a lot. I have been a Cowboy fan since Eddie LA Baron was quarterback, that’s how far I go back with them. Love the Cowboys….Not more than America. Protest some other way guys.

 

 

Mr. Forrest Finn 1930 – 2020

Well, we lost Mr. Finn a few days ago. He fell and was taken to the hospital in Santa Fe. He never regained consciousness. The hospital did release him to go home where he died a short time later. He gave a  bunch of us something to think and dream about at a cost of around a million dollars or so. And today someone is enjoying the fruits of Mr. Finn’s labors and of course his own labors in searching for the treasure. It was lots of fun Mr. Finn. We thank you for your time and money. Well, let me restate that. Mr. Finn, we thank you for your time and one person somewhere thanks you for the money…. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Finn family.

 

Does Two Wrongs Make A Right?

From the Facebook page of Pete Hester, 8/31/20.
Let me ask you folks…Does two wrongs make a right? I think I can answer that and I am not sure the two wrongs are of the same magnitude but we have to remember that wrong is wrong. The first wrong is slavery. Nothing I can say to that except it is wrong. Mistreating any person for any reason is always wrong and if the mistreatment is based on the color of one’s skin, it is terribly wrong. Violence’s is always wrong. Breaking laws meant to protect us from each other is always wrong. Believe me us white folks are very guilty on all those counts. But let me say to the black folks. You are just as obligated to uphold those laws as the whites. Going out on Saturday night and breaking laws, white or black, you have to be stopped from doing that. Both of us. Looting and stealing in the name of protesting is wrong. White or black. It’s wrong….We have got to have a police department to protect and serve. White and black…..It seems to me that us with calmer heads and Christian hearts, white and black, have got to do a little reasoning and all agree on one point. America is the greatest country on earth. The best way to destroy it is to turn it against itself, neighbor against neighbor, fighting and stealing from one another…yes and even killing one another. Our little children, many with mixed race parents are so conflicted with how to face the worlds problems even asking themselves if they can. People, come, let us reason together. Lets just settle down and get it done. Yeah, it may be a pipedream but it sure could be a start ….

History…A Forgotten Subject, Well, Until We Get It Changed…

So history is being rewritten….We do not want to offend anyone. Tell the people what they want to hear. As long as it is not the truth. Wars on the American frontier…probably never happened. War between the states? You kidding  me….Football, well yeah….but shooting bullets at our brothers? I am not going to take this any further but I think it is ridiculous that the history books have to be changed to be used in our schools. When are the children introduced to the truth? Not knowing the history helps them somehow? What am I missing here? How can we justify changing American History? Even a watered down version would be better than no history. It’s a sad day when we rewrite the history books.
