From the Corner Studio comes today's thought


Can You Imagine.....???

What today's media could have done to King David?  He was certainly not the people's choice and even after killing a giant and gathering a special force of experienced warriors, he was constantly in danger from his own family.  Then, to top all that off, he has a brave soldier killed just so he can have the soldier's wife for his own. Like all of us, David was blessed with special gifts intended only in service that would glorify God.  He failed, just as we all fail.  He paid the price for sin, just as we all do.  He suffered the disrespect of his own family, even to attempts on his life, and he persevered.  I do not wish to make Donald J Trump the perfect man, but just as the Bible says, "David was a man after God's own heart" and I am comfortable  in considering the same for my favorite President.  When you get real close to doing Gos's will in life, the SINister minister gets busy. Everywhere you look, you find hatred and maliciousness, even when doing the right thing for us all.  I have one word for all of you who "hated" Donald J Trump and only wanted to see him fail.  You think you won after the 2020 election?  IF God placed that man in that office (the Bible says that to be the case),  then all of you who sat in judgement and celebrated a travesty, will be subject to worse than any defeat at the polls. the present political enviornment is another indication of the immortality of my nation.  I consider our present day journalism totally bright "YELLOW".  The Truth is not it them.I will never consider Donald J Trump to be anything other than a blessing, good for the entire nation. Even those who so abused and accused. You don't mess with God's chosen.  Never!  And that's what I get from My Box of Chocolates right here in my corner studio under the shadow of Kyle Field.

Muster

A most solemn event is observed at Aggieland, honoring those who have answered the "12 Man" call for the last time.  Military service took many Former Students and there has been  too many whose life was snuffed out much too early due to disease and fatal accidents. I have never attended Muster and will probably never do sol, but my prayers are with all those who have lost an Aggie.  My heart is for the living.  Muster salutes those who will never answer roll call on earth, but there are a bund of us still living and it is for those that I seek to share Jesus Christ.  I regret any unpleasantness this blog may bring about, but God has a work for me still.  I feel like Jeremiah with laments for those who ignore the truth of life.  I sometimes feel it total futility to write about just one thing, but until the world comes to the knowledge of who Christ is and what he can do for our souls, I will continue to put thoughts together daily and pray that my thoughts will somehow turn eyes toward Him.  He understands and spent three years ministering and sharing God's Truth and still there were those who saw and forgot.  Jesus would be a big hit on today's reality television.  Think about what shock and awe we would feel as a man who had been dead for three days, wrapped in a shroud, walked forth at the summons of My Lord.  Or what a news headline there would be when a multitude of people were fed to their full with just five little loaves of bread and three fried fish.  then there was the first miracle that Jesus performed, quite early in life by Turing water into vintage wine at a wedding feast.  the Bible says that there would not be room for the complete number of miracles by Christ Jesus, world-wide. You know the greatest miracle was the day Jesus saved my soul!  He's continuing to bless my life and forgive each sin, past, present and future.

The glorious part about all this is that Jesus can and will do just the same for everyone, everywhere, forever.  And that's what I get from My Box of Chocolates right here in my corner studio under the shadow of Kyle Field.

America has Heart Trouble!

Before I begin my chat, let me share a great scripture that applies to us today:

"Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also."

I did not receive a ballot.  I am 'unregistered', like a nobody.  I have chosen to move to a conservative social media, 'PARLER' and  Apple wishes to ban it for concerns about 'Radical Issues'.  Who the Heck made the folks who have provided social media like 'GOD'?  Free Speech allows contrary words and opinions that may irritate, but the victory for the "DUMBOcrats" is proving Huxley's "1984" to be prophetic,  just few decades later.  I fear Barak Obama is one of the main powers behind the present political scene.  I also now see the true evidence of jumping on board to save a seat in Congress.  America is not "My America" today.  We accept whatever someone's wallet will buy and that is truly DUMB!  Phil Robertson has the best idea, "Take to the Woods"!   But, I am not an outdoors person and I do enjoy indoor plumbing and internet.  It would seem that this Blog is subject to go dark.  So, it is my plan that since I do not support the present political party and their nutty "planks", I will not support any federal bunch by refusing to pay Income Tax.  I will be easy to find since I have no secret address and what can they do that they've not already done.  I have no rights other than those determined by whomever.  

Now, we have a President(sitting on Obama's lap) making Illegal Legal to the tune of one million souls. Who do you think will pay for all those benefits?  Social Security is now "open season" and don't think for one minute that our retirement will be hit for tax increase!  America's elevators are not going to the top floor anymore. 

I recall attempts by some individuals to refuse to pay anything to the IRS and I thought they were a bit looney, but the "loonies' are running things from Washington, DC  now, so it's time to see that they go broke.

And that's what I get from My Box of Chocolates right here in my corner studio under the shadow of Kyle Field.

AMEN

Dear Children.....

Do Not Be Dismayed with what is happening in America.  I am still in charge!  Attempts to place me on the shelf are illicit.  No man, no political party, no government, no might nation, no debauchery known as 'Media", no power assigned to any SINister minister will ever overcome the power of Holiness!   What these ignorant, confused, selfish people are attempting to do to the only nation I have ever truly blessed (other than my own loved people who are just as confused and sinful as ever), for you must know that the moment those fine forefathers signed the most sacred governmental documents (totally inspired by myself, donchaknow),  It wasn't for some miscreant "DaddyWarBucks" to play around with.  May I quote the basic truth from my Bible?  It has been shared over-and-over right here under the shadow of Kyle Field.  It can be found in the Old Testament book of second Chronicles.  In chapter seven, beginning with verse fourteen: "If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and forgive their sins and heal their land.  My children, continue to do just that for the sake of those who are 'not' my children.  It breaks my heart to witness just how far from the path of righteousness you all have strayed.  I shall not me mocked!  I sent Jesus Christ to straighten this whole mess out since totally wiping sinners from the face of the earth.  He is coming again for the last time and all of humanity outside my family, will be burned to a crisp.  You who continue to do my will, will never suffer anything negative again.  But, for those who disbelieve, well....flame resistantant apparel will be of no use whatsoever, and that's FOREVER!!  Continue to disciple and share my love.  Love those who are lost beyond hope and Do As I Have Commanded!  Whatever comes down the pike will be easy for you if you remain in Me.  For I AM.  They aren't.

I AM

(I do not wish to convey that I have the least knowledge of the mind of God, other than what he shares in scripture.  As I am burdened for my precious nation, a peace suddenly engulfed me and this letter comes to mind. If you are as burdened as I, then it's time we do as God would have us to do.  We must defend what, as believers, we know to be the right thing. Pray to our Holy Father without ceasing.  Walk the Walk and Talk the Talk so that 'they' may see our good words and glorify our Father in heaven.  And that's what I get from My Box of Chocolates right here in my corner studio under the shadow of Kyle Field.

AMEN and AMEN

Evaluation

I taught in several schools after leaving SFA in Bryan. Each Administrator 'evaluated' my performance, yet,   over the 20 years I taught, I was only 'visited' four times.  I have no idea what my 'grade' was, with one exception.  At Cunningham Elementary in Las Vegas, I was called in to the office for a discussion of my year.  It went well and I was later sent a copy of my evaluation.  I had replaced a long time music teacher there and it was to my delight that after my name at the top of the page, the former teacher's name was in the remaining paper.   I was never visited by any administrator while teaching in Bryan. The Principal that provided a copy of my evaluation at Cunningham never visited my class.  The four years in Las Vegas I taught at  four different elementary schools and was visited only once and that was by  the area superintendent. I taught two years at a Christian Academy in North Carolina and had no visits.  I don't know if the head folk didn't have time or were afraid of what they might see.  I would have loved at one visit each year and I always wished for the opportunity to evaluate them. Mostly my students were much more impressive than some of my bosses.  I will say that my classes in Bryan were the most exciting.  Even when I eased up on auditions, the quality of my groups never dropped below Excellent.  I once was visited by a football coach who asked, "I have attended all your concerts and I don't seem to get the same effort from the boys on my team who are in your choir.  Why?"   I never thought about that, but responded, "Well, Coach, do you love those boys"?  He looked at me like I had lost my mind.  I didn't need any other response.  I worked very hard at every job and found ways to love the unloveable.  I had my favorites, all teachers do, but demanded the best from everyone. I challenge anyone to ask any of my students about our choirs and you will get the same response.  
"It was a Labor of Love".  Everyone of you who were blessed by a dedicated choral music teacher will know of what I speak.  

Speaking of teachers, it is evident that we have many wolves clothed in sheepskin.  What our public institutions have done to our young is disgusting.  I do not believe there to be a more sacred goal in life than to be a "Teacher of Truth" and there is, and has always been, one source of truth, donchaknow.  It's the oldest of books and it is everyones "Plan for Life", The Holy Bible.  And that's what I get from My Box of Chocolates right here in my corner studio under the shadow of Kyle Field.

This Land is Their Land

Today is a dark day for me.  I am to respect those placed in positions of authority and I shall find it difficult to do so.  This country is no longer recognized here in my corner studio.  America has become a strange place, filled with lies, maliciousness , self-servers and usurpers.  We are no longer the land of the free and the home of the brave that I love.  We spat upon truth and justice in November and it is a sad state of affairs.  

I realize I am among the few who believe in God and His Word, My Lord Jesus Christ.  Joseph Biden may take the oath of office that places him and Ms. Harris at the controls, but God is still in charge of the future and they had best follow His dictates.  What we will witness today in Washington DC is evidence of what God thinks of us now.

A disease blankets our land and it far surpasses COVID-19.  It is spiritual in nature and it is a death knell for my nation.  This land is no longer blessed due to Sin!   The inmates are in control of the "Asylum".   That which God ordained is being put asunder by mankind and God isn't mocked, so get right or end up Wrong.

And that's what I get from My Box of Chocolates right here in my corner studio under the shadow of Kyle Field.

There is no President Elect!

Main News media is ballyhooing our "President Elect Joe Biden" and as far as I am concerned, it will never happen until a full investigation by an unbiased commission says so!  You may believe all the lies and misinformation, but there is enough questionable activity for me to doubt what is being presented as "TRUTH".  Senate Republicans are so caught up with "political business as usual" that they are surrendering my nation to socialists and perpetrators of treasonable acts.  Impeachment should be enacted on those who accept a President Elect.   America is being influenced by a group of wealthy "Trump Haters", who live in mortal fear of his successes.  Blame all this on or own tendency to believe lies by people who appear to know the truth.  Remember what Will  Rogers, one of our nations most respected celebrities.  He said, "The only thing we can be sure of when a politician opens his mouth  is that he's lying".  As far as the "Fat Cats" and their wallets are concerned, "Your  birds put your pants on, one- leg-at-a-time just as I do, but probably "left-leg-first"! Your power is piffle!!

So, do as you may, it is not those of us who suspect foul play you need to be concerned about,  your 2020 election is under judgement by God, Himself.  Those who participated, supported and perpetrated this travesty are due a seriously rude awakening. Enjoy your Freedom while it lasts.

Shame, SHAME!

And that's what I get from My Box of Chocolates right here in my corner studio under the shadow of Kyle Field.

The Candyman

Does your worship center have a "Candyman"?  (or "Lady"?)  The first one I met was a lady who gave treats to everyone who asked after worship service at Northside Christian Church in Charlotte, NC.  A lonely widow, but never without a cheerful smile and a "sweet".  Then, I noticed Seth would take a beeline for the father of our Pastor at Harvest Church.  His treat was a Jolly Rancher.  

I liked that and will never forget those dear saints. 

Just recently my friend out in Idaho, informed me that one of his brothers down in Georgia

The Singer

Singers know singers when they hear them. Singers envy singers who 'out sing' them, too. I sang pretty good in my day, but there is no 'record' of my songs. Oh, I made a recording of favorite hymns once, intended to be the first of a set of three albums. "Never Alone" was recorded in 1969 at Austin Custom Records in Austin, Texas. I was there for a Texas Music Educators convention, staying with my good friend, Bill Arhos. Bill's wife, Sylvia, was a very talented musician, herself. We decided to make an album over dinner and she agreed to accompany. I called the recording company and we did the recording the next day. The engineer had blocked two-and-a-half hours. We did fourteen tracks in less than an hour. "Never Alone" was supposed to sell for $5.00, proceeds going to Professor Arthur Smith's 'Bible Chair' at Texas A&M. It languished. (I gave many away and still have one or two). Needless to say, the other two albums were never made. They were to be songs from musical theater, "You'll Never Walk Alone" and "For You Alone"(one of my favorite songs I was asked to sing at weddings). That, and a trip to Australia, will never be crossed off my bucket list. Now, back to my reason for sharing this blog. Of all the good singers that made up the play list of my radio days, four stand out. Sonny James, Sara Brightman, Johnny Hartman(so appreciated by Clint Eastwood, his voice made up the background in "The Bridges of Madison County") and Matt Munro. They were each "Heart-singers". They used God's gift of song, as a personal gift to others..no strings attached. You probably wonder, since most of my songs were given away in church, why would I not include singers of worship in my list. Well, I could never tell the difference between singing for the Lord and singing for personal gain. I'll leave that decision up to the ONE who gave them their gift in the first place. I will say that Cynthia Clawson, Bill Gaither, Jan Prince and George Beverly Shea,  Sue Poss, Alice Gene and Doy Butler,  Ed Carson, Marcia Mallard and Kelly Denny, probably brought a smile to God's face, also. It is my belief that the greatest gift a person can give another is precious song from the heart.  If you ever hear a singer that thrilled you with a gift, please do not fail to thank them for being faithful to the one who gave them the voice to do so, for to God be the Glory!    And that's what I get from My box of chocolates right here in corner studio under the shadow of Kyle Field.

AMEN
