Take care everyone!

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.

Arr. By Lowell Mason, 1792-1872

And the multitude of them that believed
were of one heart and of one soul:
neither said any of them that ought of the things
which he possessed was his own;
but they had all things common.
Acts 4:32

Blest be the tie that binds
Our hearts in Christian love;
The fellowship of kindred minds
Is like that to that above.

Before our Father's throne
We pour our ardent prayers;
Our fears, our hopes, our aims are one
Our comforts and our cares.

We share each other's woes,
Our mutual burdens bear;
And often for each other flows
The sympathizing tear.

When we asunder part,
It gives us inward pain;
But we shall still be joined in heart,
And hope to meet again.

This glorious hope revives
Our courage by the way;
While each in expectation lives,
And longs to see the day.

From sorrow, toil and pain,
And sin, we shall be free,
And perfect love and friendship reign
Through all eternity.

A white cross marks where I lie
Stop awhile as you pass by
On my grave some poppies red
Remember me among the dead
One of many who went to war
So you can stand where you are
Among the living and the free
Your liberty bought by the blood of me

See the birds flying in the air
Like metal ones that winged it there
The airborne brave shot down in flames
Additions to the roll of names
Of the ones swallowed up in sea
Or fell in battlefield just like me
This cross so white and poppies red
Mark my place among the dead

Of those who gave flesh and blood
In air and sea and fields of mud
Though for freedom we stood true
A greater sacrifice was made for you
A battle fought and victory won
True peace was bought by God's own Son
A cross for Him who came to save
The symbol of it which marks my grave

The poppies here lying red
Speaking of the blood He shed
For your liberty I lie in this hole
He arose from one to free your soul
Think of me and remember too
All of us who died for you
Yet for liberty beyond death and sod
Remember now the Son of God

Hi everyone.  Another beautiful but bit cooler day here in Georgia.  We had a lovely rain last evening.  I don't know how much it rained but it was certainly welcome.

We are going to a meeting this morning and then will head down to Atlanta to take the wheelchair and a new box fan to our daughter's apartment.  Her apartment is very hot since they turned the heat on in the building around the first of Novmeber.  Fortunately she can open her windows and get outside air but even with the heat turned off her apartment is hot.  I remember her complaining about that last year as well as this is an older building.  With the wheelchair she can get down to her mailbox without having to use the crutches. 

Nothing else on the agenda for today.  I am sure I will watch some football when we get home but the Georgia game will likely be over by the time we get back home.

Happy Birthday Melody.  That was a beautiful graphic you posted.

Janice, do you have any assistance like someone who can stay with your husband so you can get out and away for awhile?  Sometimes when we care give we get worn down with the day to day and it is very important to have time for yourself. 


Colin, what a wonderful poem!

Thanks so much for sharing that in here. 

Hi Larry!

Good  day! Well, its raining here today and looks like it will stay that way until sometimes tomorrow.
But its still warm :

Thank You Larry for the Birthday Greetings.

Colin -Love that poem thank for sharing.

God bless all 

Always Say A Prayer (A.S.A.P.)
There's work to do, deadlines to meet,
you've got no time to spare,
But as you hurry and scurry,
always say a prayer.

In the midst of family chaos,
"quality time" is rare.
Do your best; let God do the rest:
Always say a prayer.

It may seem like your worries are
more than you can bear.
Slow down and take a breather-
always say a prayer.

God knows how stressful life is;
He wants to ease our cares,
and He'll respond ASAP-
Always say a prayer!


Thanks for the reminder, Melody, to "Pray without ceasing!"

Maybe someone else knows what has happened but I don't have a clue. 

See, I had wireless internet while on my mini-trip to Greensburg, Indiana.  I could surf the web, do everything I wanted to do but I had no access to SrNet or to CP.  Both came up with the same messages...page not found or cannot access this site.  I see that SrNet is still down but you all have been posting on CP while I was puzzled wondering what happened to you all. 

Thursday and Friday were beautiful days.  Shirt sleeve weather.  We really didn't do anything but shop, eat, swim, computer, read and watch TV.  We were the second room from the lobby.  Across the hall was the ice machine and the heated indoor pool.  We only had to go maybe 20 feet for breakfast in the lobby.  Great biscuits and gravy!!  The heated pool was too cold and the hot tub was too hot but both were still very relaxing.  A great motel.  There is a farm there that has grizzly bears.  We went to see them but they must have been in hibernation...closed for the season.  Both of us said we want to come back next summer, stay a few days and see the grizzly bears...other animals, too! 

We did go to an Amish Store.  I got some Pretzel Balls.  They are about the size of peas....really good!!!  I had never even heard of Pretzel Balls before!!

But on the way home it was spitting rain.  Then I got an email from Kitty and she said it had been snowing and sleeting!!!  Only 38.2° now!!!!  What a difference a couple of days make!!

Sorry, Etta Sue.   Were you able to get to other sites?

No idea.  Maybe Larry knows.

Pat ~ I even went to Bookmarks and CP and still didn't access CP.  I had a Personal Message and couldn't get to it to reply.  And yes, I used my StumbleUpon, worked my jigsaw puzzles, Instant Messages, clickables from emails to websites.  Seems everything worked but CP and SrNet.  Thought maybe both were down for troubles.  Then I came home and found out SrNet is still down but the gabby people on CP were jabbering away!!   :D  I use Firefox.  I didn't try IE, though.


Not sure then, Etta Sue.  I use Firefox and I didn't get any alerts that there was anything wrong with the site.

Catching up while Don fiddles with two outdoor lights - nothing is working right now.  He was quite dizzy for the entire afternoon yesterday but after a nap and some food, he was just fine.  He was just checked so there isn't any reason we can figure this out.

My cholesterol was 187 and the balance is good so I am happy - walking almost daily has taken this down for me. 

No - SeniorNet must have massive problems.  It must be frustrating for all working at that end. 

Take care everyone.  Our friends from Minnesota arrive in a few hours and I made banana cranberry walnut muffins and there is a pork roast slow cooking in the oven.  Eggplant to be cooked and a corn pudding for side dishes.  There is a frozen soup that I keep on hand and will check to see if anyone wants that as well - it is one of my basic veggie and chicken broth soups that can handle extra things.

Thank you Melody and Pat. Lovely poem Melody..did you compose it? God bless.

No this is something I found on the Internet :)


This is for Etta Sue:

(Click title to hear music)

Amazing grace! How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found;
Was blind, but now I see.

'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
And grace my fears relieved;
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed.

Through many dangers, toils and snares,
I have already come;
'Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.

The Lord has promised good to me,
His Word my hope secures;
He will my Shield and Portion be,
As long as life endures.

Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease,
I shall possess, within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.

The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,
The sun forbear to shine;
But God, Who called me here below,
Shall be forever mine.

When we've been there ten thousand years,
Bright shining as the sun,
We?ve no less days to sing God's praise
Than when we'd first begun.

In the Garden
(Click for Music)

I come to the garden alone
While the dew is still on the roses
And the voice I hear falling on my ear
The Son of God discloses.


And He walks with me, and He talks with me,
And He tells me I am His own;
And the joy we share as we tarry there,
None other has ever known.

He speaks, and the sound of His voice,
Is so sweet the birds hush their singing,
And the melody that He gave to me
Within my heart is ringing.


I'd stay in the garden with Him
Though the night around me be falling,
But He bids me go; through the voice of woe
His voice to me is calling.

A dark and gloomy day and only 33 degrees.  I guess you can say winter is here in Indiana. 

I am all ready for church after a wonderful night's rest.  This evening Ivalou and I will be going to a lady's home.  The Women's Fellowship will be revealing who their Secret Sisters were last year and receiving new Secret Sisters for the coming year.  I will have a Secret Sister when I return home tonight.  I know Ivalou has had fun finding things for her Secret Sisters throughout the years. 

That's it.  I pray everyone has a blessed God's day!


Larry Hanna

Hi everyone.  Slept in a bit this morning as didn't have to get away from the house by 7:40 as I do most mornings.  I am ready for church but Pat isn't feeling well so will not be going this morning unless she changes her mind between now and 10:30.  Her leg and knee continue to bother her and she is going to try to get in to see the doctor tomorrow.

Etta Sue, the only thing I can suggest with the computer problem would be to clear the temporary internet files under the internet options in the browser.  However, that doesn't make a lot of sense since you can access from home.  One possible way to get around a problem like this would be to go to the main Home Page and then to discussions.  It sounds like you and Ivalou had a very peaceful and enjoyable few days away from home.

I am very concerned about the SeniorNet Discussions.  The last I knew there are very few people on staff at Headquarters anymore.  Usually in the past when the discussions went down there would be an e-mail but not this time.  Perhaps Pat has more insight into this issue.

LIz, I believe that God has a plan for each of our lives.  Sometimes it is hard to understand some of the paths and obstacles we must take or face but God knows where the paths lead and why we need the obstacles.  We just need to seek his will for our lives.  Hope you are feeling better this weekend.

Melody, that was a wonderful poem you shared as have been those shared by Colin.

Carol, your meal sounded delightful.  Hope your friends arrived safely.

Pat, thanks for the hymns you posted.


Good Morning I have been awake since 3AM, however I didn't  get out of bed until just after 5, I keep praying to be able to sleep until at least 5; I  go to bed between  8-8:30PM and watch TV until about 10PM and usually only get about 5 hours sleep at the most.

Larry I will be asking you how to set up my computer to Keith's router I think he said I could  plug into a USB port on the router, He is not too familiar with the how to's  of setting up the network and neither am I. Could you please send me instruction in a email that I can save until needed. Also include you phone number in case I need you to talk me through.?

It has been raining here for  over a week off an on, yesterday was the only day I didn't have a window of no rain to take the dogs for a walk. My backyard sure needs mowing and the leaves mulching. I don't mind the wetness as long as I am not out there in the rain trying to mow.

Larry I received this in an email from one of the moderators at SN

"...I don't think SN HQ is keeping Marcie any more informed than they
are the rest of us.  If you want to write the Executive Director, here's
Kristin Fabos' email.  Maybe writing her will do some good...who knows.

Good day.
its raining here today. I just came home  from church and finished eating  a good dinner :crazy:

The worship times was great and we had our a Pastor from home missions come into speak.
His sermon centred  around the purpose of the church. He explained we are not just to passively waiting for the Lord to come back but we need to be reaching out for those who do not know the Lord. :thumbsup:

Larry -remembering Pat in prayer.


Pat thank you got that hymn for me.  It brings back a lot of memories as we sang it to close Lord's Supper.


Well I am at the store resting and taking a break.  It is so peaceful here when the store is closed. 

Church is over and I find such joy in being with friends and my "spiritual" family.  The message is always good and wow the singing was amazing.

Kassie was babysitting last night, home in the wee hours of the morning, and her and I are both tired.  I remember our parents saying that the Lord's Day was often spoilled on Saturday night.  This is so true.

Well I have a lot more emails to go through so Bue for now


I know of at least five hosts who have written to this lady, Larry and Marilyn and as yet, we have absolutely no reply.

I'm setting up some space for a forum like this and we'll see how it goes.

Thanks for the music, Pat.  I am playing 'In The Garden' while writing this.

We have had lots of heavy rain the past few days.  Such heavy rain when Wendy and I went to see the Dr. on Thursday, the highway was like a lake.  Very hard for her to drive, even in good conditions.  So many drivers were speeding and creating even more problems....

Feeling some better today.. Thanks for asking Larry.  I had a very severe reaction to the Meds this time and had to call the Dr. to find out what to do.  Wendy had to that is.  I was shaking too hard to hold even a glass in my hand.  Took graval, hot liquid and hot water bottle to get warm and stop the problems.  Necessary to continue with the meds. but no further bad reactions.  Nasty experience!! ::)

The Hour of Power is now mostly replays.  Dr. Schuller removed his son as the preacher on the program and this has caused many problems at their church.  His son preached the Bible and Salvation more than his dad's books and guess this did not go over too well.  Reading the postings of many of the church folks, it is not a happy place right now.  I hope they bring him back as the minister.

Read this today and thought it interesting.  Had not thought of things in quite this way.

You'll never find a spot where east and west are actually next to each other. In going west, you never "find" east. East goes on forever. West goes on forever. They never meet. You can't get farther from something than that.
When you read in Scripture that your forgiven sins are separated from you "as far as the east is from the west" (Ps. 103:12), you are assured that they are an immeasurable distance away—gone forever.

"Oh, East is East, and West is West,
And never the twain shall meet."
So far has God removed our sins:
Salvation is complete. —Hess

We invite defeat when we remember what we should forget.  Most of us forget to forget.....

Pleasant Day/Evening and God Bless.
