"That was weird"... " No, that was God."

   Today Deb and I were shopping for a suit for me for our wedding. We went to many places to look for just the right one, while at one of the stores we were looking at a brown suit and as I was trying it on , well lets just say it was a little small. I couldn't get it on to well so I was just able to get one arm in and I turned side ways so Deb could get an idea of what the color might look like on me.
 The color looked good I thought, and she thought so too. The next question she asked me was I wonder how this color will be on our grandson, He is a little dark complected. I said jokingly "why not ask someone in the store to try it on". She looked at me and smiled and said"no".
 We continued looking, she had laid the suit that we were looking at up on the rack so we could compare it when we found another one.
 Out the corner of my eye I saw a man walk by the isle that we were in and stop, he walked backwards about two steps and stopped right in front of the isle, he then came down the isle and said " Wow, that is one beautiful suit , are you going to buy that"? He was dressed in a white T-shirt and gray sweat pants. what does that matter you ask? well I don't think that he worked there. anyway he was about the same completion as our grandson, and as the man was looking at the suit I leaned over to Deb and said why don't you ask him if he would mind trying on the suit jacket. and she explained to the gentleman about Thomas and and the man was thrilled to try it on .He then asked if we knew where the mirror was so he could see how it looked. he came back in about a minute or two, and handed Deb back the jacket and thanked us for letting him try it on, I said that we were not going to buy that one , so if he wanted it he could have it. He just said no and thanked us again , and then just walked off. Deb looked at me and said, "that was weird." ans I replied " No, that was God".
 You see, even if that man was a sales person "off duty", or someone looking for a hand out, or just someone passing by and was really impressed with the suit. It doesn't matted ,who he was. It just matters that he was at the right place at the right time. The Lord answered a need that we had even though we didn't ask him too. He still provided for us the answers that we were looking for.
 This man didn't even know, But he was a "blessing to us today". so there might be times that you too could be blessing to others, and not even know it.
 You might not even believe in God, but He will still use you as a blessing to others, and you might never know it. The Lord will take care of his children. no matter how independent you think that you are , you still need Him and he wants to be here for you. just except Him in your life and feel the "Peace".

A man with many names.

      Yesterday I posted a question on facebook to all my friends, and told them that I would be getting married soon and asked for some idea's on what I should have my new "grand children" call me. you see I never had any children of my own, and now I'm getting two step children as well as two grand children.
        I received  many new idea's  Grandpa Buzz , Pappy , Pop Pop , Grand Pop , Gramps , Grand Paw , etc.... and a couple said that I should let the kids decide, well that sounds good to but I don't want to be named after a cartoon , or something worse, well anyway I know what they meant , and they were right. right now the grand kids know me as Mr. Buzz and that's Ok with me.
  I don't expect the adult kids to call me Dad, that would be just too weird. so why would I expect the grand kids to call me by any other name than what they are already used too.
  I will leave it up to them and just pray that they don't decide on "Scooby Buzz".
   I've been called by many different names so far in my life time. ( Tom , Buzz, Woody,) and so on.
  It doesn't matter what The children call me , because it's not going to change how much I Love them.
   I don't want to scare you off, please continue to read the rest of the Blog.

    Jesus was and still is called by many different names, some good and some even bad names, But do you think that He doesn't love some as much as others. just because you might call Him a bad name doesn't mean that He won't love you.
  Jesus is all about Love, and wether or not you Love Him, He still loves you. He wants you to except Him and Believe in Him, ask Him to be the Lord of your life. and at any time that you call out His name, He is right there with you ready to take you through your toughest trials.
 1 John 4:9  In this was manifested, the Love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son
 into the world, that we might live through him.
 John 3:16 "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life".
 Romans 5:8 But God demonstrates His own love towards us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
 Titus 3:5 He saved us, not on the basis of deeds we have done in righteousness , but according to His mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit.
 1 John 4:19 We Love, because He first Loved us.

 Call me when you are ready , if you need any help and /or have any questions, about the Lord. I will do my best to answer any questions.

                               Thanks for reading my blogs, and please leave any comments that you might have.
                                                                            Tom / Buzz

Being Manly (tough or stupid)

 Two weeks ago at work I noticed a bump on my leg that was hurting something fierce. when I went to look at it , my leg was really swelled and bruised, not remembering hitting it. I then went to tell my team leader, he filled out an accident form and asked if I wanted to go to the hospital. I looked at my leg and thought to myself, this is just a bruise and it will go away in a couple of days, do I really need to see a Doctor. my answer was no. I'd tough it out and just finish out the night.

 The next day my leg was sore but not enough to go to the doctors I thought. I stupidly toughed it out for another week. when I took a trip to NY and while there (guess what happened) your right my leg started hurting again just a whole lot worse now, I didn't say anything to anyone while I was in NY, mainly because I didn't want to end up in a hospital there. so instead the "stupid manley mode" kicked in. I was going to tough it out til I got home and then If and only if I was hurting in the morning then I would go to the Doctors.
 woke up around 7am that's really early for me , I don't get home from work til 3:15am from work. anyway I waited til I could call the doctor and made an appointment for 9:30am by now the swelling looked like a blood clot and it seemed to have had a little piece move up my leg.
 The doctor sent me to have an ultra sound done right away. when I had the follow up visit he said that it wasn't as bad as we thought, although I do have to have blood work done in the morning and the next Tuesday I have an appointment to see a specialist.
 I've been off of work and on different kinds of meds. I feel fine as long as I don't put any weight on my leg.
  So Guys , don't think of yourselves as wimps if you are hurting, go and have it checked out, you could be hurting yourself worse if you wait or even if you ignor your pain.
 Now for the brighter side of things...
 I know without a doubt that the Lord is with me through what ever trials come my way.
 Psalms 118:18 says: " The LORD hath chastened me sore: but he hath not given me over unto death".
 this could mean many different things, to me today, it's saying that the trials that I'm going through He is right here with me, all I have to do is call out to Him and He will hear me.
 Psalms 27:1  The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
 Psalms 48:14 For this God is our God for ever and ever: he will be our guide even unto death.
 Psalms has a lot of great scriptures that can answer many of your questions. pray and ask for wisdom and guidence when reading.
 My "Life Verse" is Psalms 27:14 Wait on the Lord; be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart; I say, wait on the Lord.
 wait on the Lord even if you think that he doesn't care, He does.
 I know that He will deliver me from this trial, I must continue praising Him and trusting in Him.
 Thank you Lord.
