Estrella de Esperanza

Desde 1992, la iglesia El Tabernaculo ha contribuido para el bien estar de las familias que buscan refugio en este centro de ayuda. Este Navidad, el grupo de minsterio fue completo con equipo para dirigir alabanzar y adoracion a Dios. Primero Dios, algunos sentieron el amor de Dios por el mensaje de libertad. Gloria a Dios!

Sister Refugia Silva goes home.

A Picture from my PCS Vision CameraToday we bid farewell to a wonderful soldier in the faith. A "wife/ mother/ sister" was laid to rest until the day of Resurrection when the dead in Christ will rise and be caught up to be with the Lord along with those who remain. Her husband, Rey, asked for continued prayer on his behalf, because he is not sure what to do now that his wife of 53 years is gone ahead to be with her Lord, her Savior, her Jesus.

The parking lot at 3033 Bear Creek Drive is now a lake... and also any other time any considerable amount of rain falls. The Addicks Reservoir crawls up into our parking lot.
(even 2 weeks later, the water is still covering part of this area.

For a real wonderful lesson in family logic, please read through the following song. You can find the song on some of the online song services for a small fee. It's really funny! Hope you enjoy.

* * * * I'M MY OWN GRANDPA * * * *
Many, many years ago when i was 23
I was married to a widow who was pretty as could be
This widow had a grown up daughter who had hair of red.
My father fell in love with her and soon they two were wed.
This made my dad my son in law, it really changed my life.
Now my daughter was my mother, 'cause she was my father's wife.
To complicate the matter even though it brought me joy,
I soon became the father of a bouncing baby boy.

My little baby then became a brother-in-law to dad.
So, became my uncle though it made me sad.
For, if he were my uncle then that also made him brother
of the widow's grown up daughter who was of course, my stepmother.

My father's wife then had a son who kept them on the run
and he became my grandchild for he was my daughter's son.
My wife is now my mother's mother and it makes me blue
because although she is my wife, she is my grandmother too.

Now, if my wife is my grandmother, then I'm her grandchild
and everytime I think of it, it nearly drives me wild.
'Coz now I have become the strangest case you ever saw.
As husband of my grandmother, I am my own grandpa!

I'm my own grandpa! I'm my own grandpa.
It sounds funny i know but it really is so... I'm my own grandpa.

Well, for a Saturday... it feels like any other day, except it's Saturday! already! This has been a long week with the 2 drug prevention awareness rallies at Austin HS and Alief-Taylor HS. Friday was the fund-raising Training Conference, and now that we have had the opportunity to raise some scholarship funds, hopefully the Gala on Thursday will be a good celebration of the Community Service projects from this last year.

My expectancy for this next week is to be able to have a wonderful Gala, and celebrate the accopmplishments of this last year. I think from Friday on, we will have to form a new outlook for the hope of the next year, and the accomplishments of the new leadership class.

untill next...

Pastoral Visits

Happy 41st Birthday Little Brother

My little brother, Jonathan Wayne, October 18, 1963... he was a cute baby, I wonder what happened.

Sister Bonnie, prayer warrior

Sister Bonnie
Sister Bonnie is from Glad Tidings Assembly where my parents now attend. Pastor Langwell and 'Sister Pastor' from Glad Tidings also came by last night to pray with Dad and give thanks to God for his Grace and Mercy.

Mom & Liz with Dad

Lunch with Aunt Minnie

Aunt Minnie stopped by
Aunt Minnie stopped by just in time to keep Dad company during his LIQUID LUNCH. The most substantial component is 'Nanner' pudding.

Respiratory Exercises with Bessie

Bessie says Breathe Deep
Respiratory - sent Bessie to give Dad his little plastic toy to get his breathing exercises to avoid pneumonia.

Walking Exercises every 2 hours

Each journey starts with one step
Walking up and down the hall is good for Pops!

Grand Central Station!

Well, we are grateful for God's miracles. Bessie from respiratory just came in and had Dad start his breathing exercises. The big concern right now is pneumonia. Dad needs to cough and do deep breathing to avoid any complications.

Everything has happened at one time. Aunt Minnie just came in, Nurse Bruce is moving stuff around, Dad has to take care of some things, the maintenance man is fixing the wallpaper in the room... and my phone cable is about 3 feet long so I'm tethered to the wall right by the I.V. pump. I appreciate the medical profession, but I don't wish a hospital stay on anyone!

[this really makes me appreciate my Friend Rudy Carrasco's blog for his son and family: http://psalm34.blogspot.com ]

i'll be back soon.

This is how long the nights get...

My Gray Braid
My sister figured out a good way to stay awake in the long hours of the night shift by braiding my hair. This is too hard for me to do by myself, but it was fun to have Quality Time with my sis.


Dr. Morris Franklin, M.D.

Sunday, October 17, 2004 10:20 AM

Well, Dr. Morris Franklin is a name I will not soon forget. San Antonio has it's unsung heroes. As a pioneer in laproscopic surgery, Dr. Franklin is sought world-wide to teach the techniques and skills he has developed here in San Antonio. Well, this morning when Dr. Franklin came in the waiting room to talk to mom he said, "This man has been sick for a long time. This did not happen overnight." Dad's high pain threshold kept him from yielding to the messages his body has probably been sending for some time. But today, a few ounces lighter, a little less rocky (attempted gall stones pun), and by the hand of Almighty God he is resting in room 160b of the SouthEast Baptist Hospital in San Antonio Texas (210)297-3060.

Thanks to those of you who were aware and were praying, and thanks to those who love God and pray anyway for God's hand of protection and provision. Gracias a todos quienes estan orando y han estado orando por mi papa y mama. Que Dios les sigue bendiciendo con su Gracia y Bendita Presencia.

En Cristo,

Dad's sitting up just fine.

Ruben is sore, but sitting up.
Successful surgery but his 'pansita' is a little sore. Doc said he had been a sick man for a long time.
