Onward We Go

The future is called "perhaps," which is the only possible thing to call the future. And the only important thing is not to allow that to scare you. ~Tennessee Williams, Orpheus Descending, 1957

Yesterday was my birthday! All my kids called me which never happens on my

birthday. I guess they fianlly figured out I won't always be around.

I have 2 goals I want to make in life right now.

To live longer then 64 because both my parents died at that age a year apart

To live longer then 75 because that is how old Elvis would be if he didn't die

Elvis and I were born on the same day.

I don't think I am asking for much do you? LOL

Back to Oral Roberts

Man did I blow it with my last entry on Oral Roberts. I am battling with my memory. I have lost a lot of it and I walk around in a cloudy mind.

I know that Oral was very controversial and a little over board with his statements but God did use him.

I knew a family that had a personal experience with the faith of that man and their faith.

When my ex-husband was a 12 year old kid, he was talked into climbing the back side of the rock
in the photo, Morro Rock. Well the kids were messing around up there and he fell off the thing.
He lived through it because it happened to be the lowest tide that day in about 20 years. The
paramedics rushed him to the hospital where he remained in a coma.
His folks always listened to Oral who in his TV program would tell people to send a personal
object of their loved on and he would pray over it.
The folks sent their son's handkerchief and he anointed it with oil and prayed over it and sent it
back to them.
When they the hanky right away they went to the hospital and laid it on his forehead. Within a
day he came out of the coma and walked with his folks out of the hospital.
Oral had a gift as a faith healer and the folks had the faith that the Lord would heal their child.
I respect the man for the gift God gave him and the faith of the parents and Oral had.
