Dear Reader, Does this tie into Biblical prophecy? Does the publication number make you think of anything? Pray harder than you ever have. Examine every area of your life and get yourself right with God. We are facing many battles.
Brandon acquired five turkeys and several ducks. Brandon really enjoys ducks and their antics. He wants to breed them on his 3.5 acre hobby farm. The birds were a package deal.
Brandon was told the turkeys were a Royal Palm, a heritage breed (smaller, reproduce successfully). He was going to keep them at his place and breed them next year. Well, he realized very quickly they were not heritage breeds! The five of them were far too large for his pen. So he put them in one of my spare pens. He wasn't sure what he had. Once I got home, I knew.
They are production turkeys known as White Broad Breasted. They are far too large for Brandon's pen, and the cost to feed them grain only will be enormous. So, he gave them to me.
The two toms are about 50-55 lbs and the three females around 35-40. Emily, who is our poultry trainer, is teaching them to follow her out of the pen in the morning and back into it at night. They are still penned but will be allowed to free-range as soon as they learn the pen is their new home and learn to come when called.
Don't feel bad for them being penned until they learn. Their pen is 40 x 30 with an additional 100 square feet shelter. This is larger than the entire suburban backyard where they lived before.
This breed is generally unable to breed successfully so they have to be artificially inseminated. I used generally because there are exceptions, but it is nothing one can rely upon. I could let them drop off in weight to give them a better chance at breeding successfully, but there are no guarantees it would work.
I could also buy a heritage tom and keep two females. People who have done that say the result is a smaller but faster-growing bird with the coloring of the tom.
It takes a lot of feed to raise a turkey to full weight. It also takes a lot of feed to allow them to maintain that weight.
I will pray about it and think on it.

Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were uneducated and untrained men,
And they realized that they had been with Jesus.
Dear Reader, May people think/say the same about each of us as we seek His will for our lives and try to live out His Word.

"Don't be so quick to write off those who are not 'like-minded.' Not everyone is at the same place. Don't feel like everyone has to be standing exactly where you are on every issue. The fact is, not everyone will agree with you on every issue. Just be in your place. Speak and walk in truth. Serve your Brothers and Sisters without judging them. Seek peace and let God be God!" ~from Homeschooling for Eternity
We are called to be united with believers in the Gospel. The secondary matters do not change the need for unity or the Reason we are united. Remember your place. We are servants of the Most High. Servants. We serve Him. His Word says to be united and to outdo each other in love. It does not say to argue over everything else. -Mama Asbell
"Some things will be happening now right before God's coming that could shake you up quite a bit. I'm referring to events that will be so dramatic that they could leave your head spinning. Occurrences of such serious nature that many people will end up feeling alarmed, panicked, intimidating, and unnerving. Naturally speaking these events could put your nerves on edge and make you feel apprehensive and insecure how I wish I could tell you these incidents were going to be a One-Shot deal but when they finally get rolling they're going to keep coming and coming, one after another. That's why you have to determine not to be shaken or moved by anything you see or hear. You need to get a grip on your mind and refuse to allow yourself to be traumatized by these events. If you let these things get to you it won't be too long until you're a nervous wreck." -author unknown

This is a beautiful write up that honors a strong Christian neighbor and good friend to our family. Please pray for Rose and the rest of Eddie's family.
We're all OK. It's been very busy.
Clint and I celebrated our 33rd year of marriage and 36th year of being a couple. We had a very nice time away.
In the middle of our anniversary get away, our neighbor called us for help because his aid forgot to secure things before leaving. No one else would answer the phone, so we gladly went to assist him. It was no problem at all. Clint and I are very blessed that we can get in a long weekend together nearly every month, so the interruption wasn't a big deal for either of us. We were happy to help make sure he was safe and comfortable.
As soon as we got home, I knew a friend's time on this earth was very short. I hurried through catching things up at home in case I was called upon as a support person.
A few days after our friend passed, I had to leave again for work (side hustle).
Then I was off to a Labor Day celebration where I prepped food and grilled for eight hours. Our group dined on hamburgers, hot dogs, brats, chicken, shrimp/beef/chicken/pork shishkabobs with plenty of fresh and colorful veggies (yellow squash, zucchini, red and green peppers, sweet purple onions) followed by fruit and some pies.
Then I was off again for more work which is what I am taking a break from at the moment.
I am rewarding myself with a full day of Bible study. Life is busy, but it sure is fun and fruitful!
Brandon was given his review. He received very, very high praises! He was given a very nice raise and a bonus. He was also told that his skill level has advanced enough that his boss is going to recommend him for her position when she leaves the company which will happen in 2-5 years. If he wants it, it will be a sizeable increase in pay for Brandon.
Amanda's boss failed to tell her that she was supposed to work the holiday weekend. She mentioned that she was off, but no one corrected her at the time. When she did not show up, they tried calling, but our family was in an area where there was no reception. One of her co-workers decided to stab her in the back with a lie. Amanda didn't even worry about it. She said the joke was on them because the Lord is on her side and her attendance (perfect) and over-time (a very large amount) record speaks for itself. She went to the boss and set the story straight with directness and honesty like people of integrity do. Her boss told her he believed her and nothing will go on her permanent record. I am very proud of her faith and confidence that the Lord would handle it for her. I am also proud of her for dealing with it quickly with no hesitation or fear.
Joshua has been feeling off. He pukes in the mornings. I am concerned he either has a stomach acid or a blood sugar problem. It's infrequent and tied to not eating regularly. He will get up at 4, skip breakfast, unload a truck for hours for the restaurant, and then eat when lunch rolls around. His teen body handled that well. His adult body is complaining that it needs more nutrition and fuel. He is making adjustments, and we will see what happens.
Caleb is still working three jobs. His bank account is showing his efforts too. Everyone who knows him loves him. He helped his best friend, Desiree, work on her car in the Walmart parking lot when she was stranded this past weekend too.
Bethany is working part-time still. She still does not have her driver's license due to issues with our DMV due to CoVid. We have tried working around it. We have even tried to enroll her in a driving course because the instructor can give her the exam, and she will not need to go to the DMV for the behind-the-wheel test. The local companies are overbooked for the same reasons. Bethany is not in a rush. She has her car and her siblings take her anywhere she wants to go. She is trusting the Lord for the next step.
Emily and Hannah, our two peas in a pod, have been traveling with me some. Other times, they are at home keeping things going and working on their homeschool. They are enjoying the changes in routine. I am enjoying the time with my two youngest daughters in different settings which is bringing out more of their personalities. They are keeping me laughing!
Here is another link that was shared with me regarding menstrual cycle disruption:
I am still not home and will probably not be home until early next week.

"Many churches today have too much sugar and not enough salt." -Bethany
Too many churches are helping Christians grow closer to the world-the same world Jesus called us out from.
“You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot." Matthew 5:13

Hi there Miss Wendy! Here is another article.
"People given both doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine were almost six-fold more likely to contract a delta infection and seven-fold more likely to have symptomatic disease than those who recovered.
“This analysis demonstrated that natural immunity affords longer lasting and stronger protection against infection, symptomatic disease and hospitalization due to the delta variant,” the researchers said."
Shared with me. I haven't had time to read it myself. Sharing for those who asked me to share. Not at home. On a break from working in this heat. Love to all! -w

Direct Link to Israeli Study on Herd Immunity vs CoVid Vaccine
These were just shared with me. I have not had time to read them all the way through. I am sharing with like-minded friends/family now so I don't forget later.
August 30: I have been slow in updating. He was admitted to the hospital. They did another dilation surgery on him Saturday morning. He did not aspirate anything like the paramedic thought. He was able to go home Saturday afternoon. I checked with Sarah on Sunday and she said he is doing fine. Thank you to those who prayed for this sweet baby boy.
August 27: Sarah texted me. Walter is heading to CHKD by ambulance. He had breathing issues again. Aspiration is likely according to paramedics.

Please pray for our good friend Eddie. He is nearing the end of his assignment on this earth. He has stage 4 lung cancer. His wife told me last night they think that his cancer has moved into his bones. There are changes daily. He is more often tired and eating less. We were told before others so we could get prayers started. They will be telling family and other friends over the next few days.
Please pray that a health issue for one of our family members resolves itself without needing intervention. If it were to worsen, it could be life-threatening. At this point, it is not. We are keeping a very close eye on it. It is not CoVid.
for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.”
forsake comes from the Greek word egkataleipō which means this.

13,000 Deaths, Nearly 600,000 Adverse Events Reported After COVID Vaccines, as Debate Heats Up Over Boosters
“A young man once sat in my office and said, “Ray, I’ve been looking at you guys, and I don’t have what you’ve got. I have no zeal for the lost. I don’t have a hunger for the Word. Something is wrong in my Christian walk.”

Quite often lately, I've been asked if I believe in the Rapture of the Church and when do I think it will happen. It just so happens, I started writing a post like this years ago when I started noticing changes occurring in our world pointing to the end times being very close. For some reason, I left it in my drafts and never finished it. I've been working on this in little bits of time in a very busy season. I apologize for spelling and grammatical errors.
I have prayerfully studied the differing viewpoints numerous times over the course of my life. Every time I delve into it, I come away more convinced of a Pre-Tribulation Rapture. Now, I could be wrong. I might be missing something or blinded by something. My fallible self is why I am encouraging you seek the Lord on your own and do your own Bible study. He should be the source you seek.
I want to point out that I am sharing only some of my notes on the topic. I realize the individual notes on the different points themselves are brief, but maybe that will encourage you to pray for wisdom and understanding and do your own research and Bible studies into the different points. I had work planned, but I put that aside so I could finish writing this for those who have been asking.
First, I want to make sure that you realize the word rapture is in the Bible. In I Thessalonians 4:17, the words "caught up" are translated into Latin as raptere which is where we get the word rapture. In Latin, it means "to seize and carry off." In Greek, it is harpazo which means "to take/snatch away." This is the same word used to describe Paul being "caught up" to Heaven in 2 Corinthians 12:2-4. I feel the two verses are clearly talking about people being very quickly relocated from the earth.
Jesus' own words make me believe in the Pre-Tribulation Rapture.
In Luke 17 Jesus points out that wrath came after Noah and Lot were safe. Notice that the wrath came immediately after their safety. Jesus tells us it will be like those days. He includes that the righteous were protected and then judgment came.
Revelation 3:10 Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come on the whole world to test the inhabitants of the earth.
The Rapture is sudden (twinkling of an eye) and stealthy (unknown time) (like a thief in the night). It involves Christians who are prepared (Parable of the Virgins). The Second Coming does not happen in a twinkling of an eye, and it is easy to pinpoint when it will happen. It is very public. Everyone will see Him. Matthew 24:29-31
The restraining nature of the Holy Spirit who lives inside believers also points to a Pre-Tribulation Rapture. This is called the "indwelling of the Holy Spirit." Very clearly today, we can see evil bulging at the doors. If you are paying close attention, you can see goalposts by the other team being moved further and further back. What's holding evil from running rampant? What has to happen before the end time timeline begins?
And now you know what is holding him back, so that he may be revealed at the proper time. For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one who now holds it back will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way. And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming.
God has a pattern of removing His people before He unleashes His wrath. Why would He treat us any less than them?
Noah and his family were removed from society and saved from God's judgment on the earth through the ark. They got into the ark BEFORE it started raining. Jesus is our ark saving us.
Lot and his family were removed from their society and saved from God's judgment on Sodom and Gomorrah. Lot was told by the angel to hurry up because the angel could not do anything to Sodom until Lot had arrived at the safe destination. Genesis 19:21-22.
We are told in Scripture we are not appointed for wrath. The word appointed here is also translated "to place." What I get from it is that we are not in the place of or in the way of His coming wrath. It's not meant for us. If we are not in the way of His wrath, then we have to be removed just as we see others being removed in other Biblical instances.
Some maintain the Church has to go through the wrath and judgment to be good enough to go to Heaven. Gently said, to me, that is like saying the work on the Cross was not complete.
A study of the holy feasts as a prophetic outline of future events: Four feasts happen in the spring (early in the timeline) and three happen in the fall (later in the timeline.)
These teachings that are hidden and found by those who search them out are one of the reasons I love studying the Word. There is the surface reading you can do, and then there are layers upon layers of learning for the diligent seeking Him. This lifetime is not long enough for all He has to teach us in His Word.
1. Passover: Jesus' sacrifice for us, the Crucifixion happened
2. Unleavened Bread: removal of sin, Jesus buried on this day
3. First Fruits: Jesus' resurrection, Jesus is called the first fruit in I Cor. 15:20-23
4. Pentecost: 50 days after the Feast of First Fruits, this is when the Holy Spirit fell on the people in the upper room to birth the Church.
5. Trumpets: the blowing of the trumpets/shofar in a feast that goes from sundown on one day to sundown two days later. A lot of Christians believe Jesus will return on these feast days but they do not know the year, day, or time.
a. Shofars are blown 100x using 9 sessions 11xs each = 99 which leaves one last final blast. The 100th blowing of the shofar is the longest and loudest. No one knows the day or time it will be blown.
b. There are many names for the Feast of Trumpets. These names also give us clues to the prophetic timeline: Wedding Day of the Messiah (Rapture-Jesus coming for His Bride), Yom Teruah the Day of the Awakening Blast (dead will awaken I Thes 4:13-18), Rosh Hashanah aka the beginning of civil New Year points to a new beginning with Christ.
The Feast of Trumpets in Jesus's Day was also called The Day Which No One Knows which would have been a name known by the disciples as they listened to Jesus say, "But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only." Matthew 24:36. Both the name and the verse point us to a Jewish wedding where a groom would find a bride and before he could marry her, he would go away to make a place for them to live. The groom could not go get his bride until his father approved the dwelling and gave him permission. There are other names for the Feast of Trumpets, but I only chose to cover a few here for space and time reasons.
6. Atonement: 10 days after the Feast of Trumpets and this points to the Second Coming of Christ.
7. Tabernacles: 5 days later, 7 days long, this is where Jews live for seven days in booths signifying they will dwell with the Lord forever. This feast points us to eternity with our Lord and Savior. This feast is in the 7th month, is 7 days long, and is the 7th feast. 7 is the number of completion.
I highly recommend e-Sword.

I've been here a while. I've seen the pattern. Stock up at lower prices while you can. If the businesses are doing this, and they are, and it is being called a good financial move, then it is a good move for you and I also.
I am not arguing the necessity of the increase. I am saying I've seen how one thing leads to another.
Speculation only, but it could get to where some or most of us can not find or purchase all we need for one week. In that instance, we will need to supplement from our garden or stored foods. Make sure you look after the shut-ins in your neighborhood and circle of friends.
In one community I am in, people are already bartering for goods. One person can't find a needed item. Another has plenty, so they make an exchange to help each other out. Keep this in mind as we go forward.
There is a whole gamut of emotions going through most of us. Prices on everything, lockdowns, viruses, election battles, supply issues, Taiwan, Afghanistan, protests all over, natural disasters, and much more. When the news is stealing your peace, it is time to step back and spend time with the Lord. Reflect on WHO He is and what He has promised us. Reflect on who we are in Him. Memorize a verse that comforts you. -->Speak His truth out loud.<--Remember every step we take forward takes us closer to eternity with Him. We just have to get through this last part. I do not know how bad it is going to get, but I know what comes after. Better yet, I know WHO is coming! Maranatha! My love to all!
I purchased five pounds of serrano peppers. After they were sliced and placed on the dehydrator I used alcohol to extract the capsaicin from the part that is normally thrown away. I use this in a liniment I make with other herbs to relieve pain and speed the healing of deep muscle strains and sprains. Within 10 minutes we could see the alcohol extracting properties from the leftover bits. It's really cool to watch it start and then grow darker.
We already invested our money in the peppers. Why not be a good steward and get all we can use out of them? I saved the seeds from the six largest peppers too. In three weeks, I will have seeds to share. Next spring, I can sell some of the plants I start to more than recover the cost of the peppers. (The five pounds was $3.20 from the big box W.) That's like getting free food and medicine. It took me about 15 minutes to slice the peppers and another 5 to start the liniment. "Waste not, want not."
Dear Reader, Peppers can leave your mouth on fire, but I know something even hotter. I know Someone who put my soul on fire! I encourage you to get to know Him. If you already know Him, I am praying for you and me to get to know Him even better. May we boldly preach His name wherever we go! My love to all!
