We sang this in church last Sunday and it really does have great words.

We haven't posted it on CP since 2005!!!  So, let's sing it together this evening...

Sooner or Later
(Click to hear music)

For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd;
he will lead them to springs of living water.
And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.
Revelation 3:20

Words and Music by Lula W. Koch, 1892 - ?

Sooner or later the skies will be bright,
Tears will be all wiped away;
Sooner or later, then cometh the light,
Night will be turned into day

Sooner or later cares will have flown,
Sunshine and gladness we'll see; -
Sooner or later God calleth His own,
With Him forever to be.

Sooner or later, our Lord knows the hour,
He'll send His beloved Son;
Sooner or later, in His might and pow'r
Our battles all will be won.


Sooner or later, yes, sooner for some,
Darkness will all then be past;
Sooner or later our Saviour will come -
With Him will your lot be cast?

Jeanne and Melody, thanks for your prayers.

Liz, sorry Wendy is having another tough time.

Darrel's brother-in-law called a bit ago to tell us his sister had a stroke this morning, so the 96th birthday party for their Mom has been canceled, or at least postponed.  I hope Dolores gets along all right, she has been in poor health for several years now.

Guess I will see if I can go copy and answer the questions.

well keyes is getting put all over the news for sure... too bad its from something so terrible... there have been 2 cofirmed cases of meningococcemia in this little town .... we have hit the media hard and we are pushing to get the state out here but thats worse than pulling teeth in a mad bear... they don't want anything to due with us except our tax money and its getting a lot of people rattled.... i think we should pack up the town and head downstate to the oklahoma dept of health and start trying to get the help that way.... we are getting in every source of the news whether it be online news, newpaper and tv\ radio... its quit insane... anyways i've been ranting long enough i know that it is going to be a long hard road for keyes and for the country .... its going to be fun.. i hope everyone has a good evening and i hope that ya'll are staying healthy...


Hi everyone.  Thanks for the welcome.  I am not very good at keeping caught up with posting but I will try to say hello once in awhile.

Pat, I went to see your wedding photos.  What a lovely bride you were!  And a handsome husband too.  Everyone looked good, and the entire scene was lovely....kids participating and all.  It must have been fun as well as meaningful for you and Paul.  I wish you every happiness. 

Yes, it will be a long four years, but we are instructed by scripture to pray for him and for our country.  Whatever God allows is for a reason, and I hope this country realizes what judgment means.  Remember the Babylonian exile?  We must trust God, who is Sovereign, and live a life that is pleasing for Him.  We are going to need more strength than we humanly have, in order to endure the hardships ahead.  But, His Grace is sufficient! 

Marilyn, best wishes for a happy marriage, I hope you will be very happy in your new life in Oregon. 

Etta Sue, I enjoy your emails too!  I may not always reply but I do enjoy them.  I wish I could be as active as you are, oboy, you are going constantly!   :) :) 

Janet, I did not realize that Beth's condition has deteriorated that much either.  I am so sorry.  I wish there was a way that she could read for herself.  That must be such a burden for her, to not be able to hold a book or whatever.  My prayers for her too, as well as for you. 

Carol, thanks for asking about Earl.  He is doing well considering he has so many ailments, diabetes, heart disease, kidney disease, etc.  I may have told some of you that he has Alzheimer's disease.  It may not be so noticeable to someone who is not around him very long, but it sure keeps me busy as caregiver. 

Hello to all others I missed. 


OK, here is my trivia questionnaire thingy......

Getting to Know You

1.  What's your favourite season?   Definitely Autumn.

4.  What hymn encourages you?  Great is Thy Faithfulness.

5.  Tell us about a few of your hobbies.  Sudoku puzzles, sewing, computer.

This is the day the Lord has made, we will rejoice and be glad in it.   Ps 118:24


Sarah, I missed your post.  What a frightening thing that has happened in your town!  I hope there will be no more new cases, or else there may be a Twilight Zone situation there, huh?  Hope it settles down soon. 
This is the day the Lord has made, we will rejoice and be glad in it.   Ps 118:24

Hi everyone. 

I am awaiting the time to leave for morning coffee.  My schedule is very light today as don't have anything on the calender.  However, I know Pat has a little chore or two in mind for me before the day is out.  I took down the kitchen curtain yesterday and she washed it and took out a seam that make it fit very tightly on the rod and has now resewed it so it won't be so hard to get on the rod.  She plans on washing the windows in the kitchen today and putting the curtain back up, which is where I come into the picture. 

I have a couple of other projects to work on as well, including practicing the bass part of the Messiah. 

Janice, sorry to hear you are dealing with that dreadful disease Alzheimer's.  We lived with that for several years with my mother and watched it progress.  If you haven't done so I would strongly encourage you to contact the Alzheimer's Association and have a counselor come and talk with you and perhaps other family members.  We did this and it was extremely valuable in helping us understand the whole situation, especially my father to begin to accept the reality of the situation and making some decisions, while difficult, that were beneficial to mother and to him and our family.  Please don't forget to take care of yourself during this difficult time.

Sarah, sorry to read that your town cannot get the help it needs to deal with the problem.  The publicity doesn't really deal with the problem.

Janet, so sorry to read of your SIL's stroke.  You all really don't need more stress within your family circle.  However, we don't get to chose these things.  Sure hope the stroke didn't do serious damage that cannot be restored.

LIz, I liked your 10 predictions for they are certainly the truth.

Pat talked with her cousins and aunt in Florida last evening.  A couple of weeks ago her aunt came home from church and decided to pick up some avocados that had fallen on the ground.  She lost her balance and fell and because of previous broken hips and leg bones wasn't able to get up.  This was about 1 pm on Sunday afternoon.  She has a panic button but didn't wear it to church as was always with someone else.  She hadn't changed clothes and put the panic button back on before going outside.  She called and called for help but no one heard her.  She was finally able to scoot herself to her porch and spent the night there as couldn't reach the door handle to get back into the house.  Finally about 11 am on Monday morning someone heard her call for help and responded.  She spent the night in the hospital but had no more broken bones.  Her back has been bothering her since the fall however.  She will be 90 on the 19th of this month.  We are going to Florida for about three days to be there to celebrate her birthday with her.


Oh Larry How frightening for her.  I will be praying for her.

We are to have another wonderfully warm day here.  Again almost 70F

Busy day ahead, I am teaching a beginner sewing class today and that will be a treat.  The young lady comes from a long line of sewers but has never taken the leap herself. 

Must run
Have a great day everyone.


Good Morning. still pretty damp today so far, hope it will brighten up later instead of being so overcast and dreary.

My son's two little dogs are fine after their night at the vet. They think maybe the kids had spit out some  chewing gum in the yard and that the dogs got hold of that. The vet said one stick of  gum can kill a dog, it is the sweetener that is used Xylitol, very very toxic to animals.

I have to work on my car today to remove a panel   to get to the lights in the rear. My right side blinker  needs a new bulb. I will do that myself  if  it isn't raining later.

Sarah so sorry to hear about the  two children in your town, I think I saw something on the news about that.

Larry how scary for  Pat's aunt. I hope she is going to be OK.

Janice  do take care of yourself too every caregiver need a break. Here they have a group  just for the family caregivers, they have counseling  sessions weekly and resources available to help.  Have you checked into anything like that in your area.

Janet, Liz and Larry please know that  am continuing  to pray for your daughters.

I'm astounded to read of Pat's aunt.  My goodness how awful.  I do hope that she's going to be alright.  What a night she had!

Hello to everyone else!

I need to know what John put into his big mixture a couple of weeks ago that hhe made to take on the road with him. Apparently he made it because you weren't well?

He said that he chopped up a cabbage, used some mixed beans (I think he said 3 cans) and onions and I just forget the rest.

I bought the beans and the cabbage.

Can you let me know?

Sarah how awful!  Keep us posted, ok?

Great is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father;
There is no shadow of turning with Thee.
Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail not;
As Thou hast been Thou forever wilt be.

Great is Thy faithfulness! Great is Thy faithfulness!
Morning by morning new mercies I see;
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided
Great is Thy Faithfulness, Lord unto me.

Summer and winter and spring-time and harvest,
Sun, moon and stars in their courses above
join with all nature in manifold witness
To Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love.


Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth,
Thy own dear presence to cheer and to guide,
Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow,
Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside!

Larry Hanna

Hi everyone.  Today is our weekly men's coffee at the local Senior Center.  At 1 pm today we are attending a special luncheon given for the board and invited guests of the Golden Games.  While I am not on the board I am the webmaster and computer person for them and they graciously invited Pat and I.  One of the  retirement centers here is providing a sit down dinner for our group.  I don't have anything else on my schedule for today.

I think Pat's aunt is all right other than a painful back.  She has some pain medication for the pain.

Our daughter had quite a day yesterday.  She saw the foot doctor and he put her foot in a soft cast for one week and told her as soon as she got home to put no weight on her foot by using her crutches.  Unfortunately she had to do quite a bit of walking, including going back to his office as he didn't write the prescription he gave her for pain in a way that the pharmacy would fill it.  So she had to walk back over to his office.  While she was waiting for the prescription to be filled she went to the food stamp office to sign more papers as they had called her indicating she will probably get more help than they originally said as they had heard from the disability office.  She is still waiting to hear on that claim and has a physical appointment in early December with the disability doctor.

Janice, yesterday when I wrote about the Alzheimer's Association I met to also suggest seeking a support group and was glad to see Marilyn mention it.  I did attend such a group when we were caring for my mother and it was helpful to be with others who are experiencing the caregiving experience and some of those suffering with the affliction also attend and can participate.

Marilyn, hope you don't have any problem in replacing the bulb in your car.  In this area you can go to Auto Zone or Advance Auto and they will actually replace the bulb for you for the price of the bulb.

Judy, it sounds like you have just one student in your class today.  It sounds like you are going to enjoy the experience.



Good morning to all.

Its raining here today and it looks like a good day to do some much needed work around here :)

Larry Praying for your daughter today.

Looks like I have to celebrate a birthday today at least that's what the calendar tells me!! :lol: :crazy:
God Bless <3


Yes I love teaching sewing to others.  She is a quick study as well.

John leaves for Winnipeg today, after getting the truck serviced.  He is looking forward to the different scenery, west rathewr than east.

We all slept in this morning, Kass was up and got ready and then called us.  At 14 she ius quite the yound lady, with a huge responsibility streak.  

Well I am off, I hope to have a home computer on Sunday so I will be able to do my computer work in the evening rather than the limited time in the daytime.

Have a great day everyone,


Larry I am praying for both people in your family who had a mishaop this week.  Both sound so tramatic.


Melody is it  your birthday?  If so then

Happy Birthday Melody

Happy Birthday, Melody!  Enjoy your day.
This is also Billy Graham's birthday, he is 90 yrs young today. 
A quote today from Mr Graham......
The evangelist Billy Graham says on ageing that "just because we grow weaker physically doesn't mean we must grow weaker spiritually". ...

Thanks to Pat for the song!! I like that song, and appreciate your posting it here at CP for me!! I was online last night, and noticed it there.  My computer has gremlins in it I guess....too many times lately it has shut down what I have open, but leaves other things open.  It's weird to have that happen.  I didn't get to hear the music when I tried, it shut down too quick, and tossed me out of CP.  I was too tired as it was late, so I didn't try again at that time.  I wanted to post a thanks before trying this morning, in case it happens again. 

Larry, sorry to learn of your daughter's frustrating day, I do hope things will go a little smoother for her for awhile now.  And what a scary situation Pat's aunt had!  It reminded me of Earl's sister several years ago who had a similar thing happen to her.  She fell on her backyard concrete walkway, and she actually did have her alert button thingy on her, but it did not work!  A few hours went by and no one heard her call for help either.  She finally did as Pat's aunt did and crawled to the back door.  With great effort she finally was able to reach the door handle and get in the house to a telephone.  She also was 90, or right at it rather.  We had plans to go down there (Truth or Consequences, NM) in a couple of days to help celebrate her birthday, so we went on down right away.  She lived alone as she was a widow, and no children. 

Thanks to you and Marilyn for the advice on AD support groups, and such.  I think there is one here in our town, I may look into it someday.  Right now, I don't feel ready for that.

JudyB, glad you enjoy teaching others to sew.  I did a little of that when my two granddaughters were around 10 years old.  We had little sewing sessions along with some neighbor girls joining in.  One girl entered something in the county fair that she had made, and got a ribbon.  She said the judges thought she surely had help making the item (I have forgotten what it was), for one reason because I had let them use my serger to finish the seams, and they were surprised at seeing finished seams from a young girl. 

Everyone have a great day!
Love, Janice
This is the day the Lord has made, we will rejoice and be glad in it.   Ps 118:24


Pat:   SUCCESS!  I was able to get the music just now, and listened through it twice.  Thank you again, I will listen more times than this, I promise.  That song speaks to my heart. 

I wonder, did you play that piano yourself?

Love, Janice
This is the day the Lord has made, we will rejoice and be glad in it.   Ps 118:24


No, Janice.  I didn't play the piano.  I found the midi file on the internet some years ago.  Making midi files is something I've not ever tried. 

I'm so happy you enjoyed that.  It's one of my favourite hymns as well.

I'm sorry that you are going through this Alzheimer journey with Earl.  Jack's sister had it for about 11 years before she was promoted to glory.  It was sad.  But we tried to talk on the telephone to her at every opportunity and we made notes about family history, etc. as she was older than Jack and she knew lots of things he didn't know.  And now, just about 8 weeks ago, Paul's older brother died as a result of it so we have experience of it for sure.

My prayers will be with you.

Victory in Jesus
(Click to hear music)

Words and Music by Eugene. M. Bartlett

I heard an old, old story, How a Saviour came from glory,
How He gave His life on Calvary To save a wretch like me;
I heard about His groaning, Of His precious blood's atoning,
Then I repented of my sins And won the victory.

O victory in Jesus, My Saviour, forever,
He sought me and bought me With His redeeming blood;
He loved me ere I knew Him And all my love is due Him,
He plunged me to victory, Beneath the cleansing flood.

I heard about His healing, Of His cleansing pow'r revealing,
How He made the lame to walk again And caused the blind to see;
And then I cried "Dear Jesus, Come and heal my broken spirit,"
And somehow Jesus came and bro't To me the victory.

O victory in Jesus, My Saviour, forever,
He sought me and bought me With His redeeming blood;
He loved me ere I knew Him And all my love is due Him,
He plunged me to victory, Beneath the cleansing flood.

I heard about a mansion He has built for me in glory,
And I heard about the streets of gold Beyond the crystal sea;
About the angels singing, And the old, redemption story,
And some sweet day I'll sing up there The song of victory.

O victory in Jesus, My Saviour, forever,
He sought me and bought me With His redeeming blood;
He loved me ere I knew Him And all my love is due Him,
He plunged me to victory, Beneath the cleansing flood.
