“Just “ONE” more DAY…”

“Tomorrow….  is the “BIG” day  – – and as you can see I can hardly wait – – – Will tomorrow … ever get here???” 

Alan 001

“Does everyone feel so excited – – like me – – just the day before the “BIG”  day… my “BIRTHDAY” – – when I will be one year older…  than I am today.”

“I’m crossing my fingers and my toes – – for lots of GOOD  LUCK  – – just so all of my friends and FAMILY will have as much FUN – – as I know that I will.”

“You know… when you are my age  – – and it is BIRTHDAY  TIME – – there is so much excitement going on – – decorating the house – the “HAPPY BIRTHDAY” sign stretching across one side of the wall – to the other side – – – and all the  BALLOONS”  – – and inside each balloon is a ticket with a prize number – – to be matched with the matching PRIZE on the  PARTY display table – – as …we believe that everyone that comes to the PARTY – – should also have FUN – – by winning a PRIZE – – to take home – –  – – that is a for sure gift to take home.”

“Also… GRANDMA will be here for the PARTY – – she always has a list of games and silly things to do – – as she likes for everyone to participate in having FUN – – doing some of the silly things… that will have everyone having so much – – that the Laughter will be heard down on GRAND AVENUE – – that’s her   standard saying – –  so…  only if you know  GRANDMA – – will you have an idea – – of what she is up… too?”

“Everything  is ready for the PARTY – –  Be ready for lots of FUN and GAMES!”

“WE will all CELEBRATE – this Weekend!”

Do you  see my hand…  – – well … I know  – – or maybe I should say … I have an idea … that something real special is coming up – – and…  I am not suppose to know – – other-wise… HOW ??? – Will I  be able to act so supersized – –   – –  When I hear everyone – – start to “yell out”  – SURPRISE  and  HAPPY BIRTHDAY ALAN!” 


“Seems to me – – that everyone is talking about…   all the stuff going on this weekend – – This whole week- end – – there  will   be… “FIRE-WORK  DISPLAYS” – at the FOREST PARK – –  all kinds of rides and places selling all kinds of  FOOD – – and…  all of this will start  with … one of the most spectacular of PARADES – –  everyone and everybody – – that is…  that I know…  will be there  – – as they are even having the “HOT  AIR BALLOONS”  there…  and some of my friends are planning on taking one of those rides – – as they never did that before – – and this weekend – – well – it just looks like that will be the exciting thing to do!”

“When I think back…I remember hearing GRANDMA – – telling me that my “BIRTHDAY” was suppose to be on “JULY 4th” – – but since I had decided to be born a few days earlier – – on the “1st”  – – that all of this celebrating is all… just for me – – because GRANDMA… also said that we should celebrate our BIRTHDAYS for the whole week!”  AND – – the reason for that….  is that – TODAY – -people are so busy with all that they have to do – – FAMILIES – WORK –  and so many new things happening that keep us always doing something – – that  – when an occasion comes up for the FAMILY  to get together – – not all of the FAMILY can make the  free time to celebrate  together – – as an united FAMILY!

 “So… here is my  THANK YOU – – to the whole wide world – – for deciding to help me  – celebrate with all of my FAMILY and the  many other people – –  that are in the celebrating mood – – since everyone is off work – – and there will always several days  – – all lined up together for us to have the best BIRTHDAY PARTY!”

“From the WORD…FREEDOM!”

Is “FREEDOM” here in “AMERICA” – – for all?

Today …   that is…  in   AMERICA… we are into our “FEELINGS” – –   that is … for our “SELF”  only  and always  FIRST…  we FEEL  – – that we do not have  that  which… we see people on “TV” having…  and having so much of it… that we feel … that we somehow … missed out…   and begin to wonder…  WHY?

We also see … and so…  right there in your FACE – – so much crime and out-right aggravation – – one to another – – and all for the greed of those making the movies – – and… when  we  take  all of this  – – into our simple brains – – and with the constant…  re feeding of this junk  – – we soon start acting out  – –  just as if  – – that is the way to go – – with our LIFE – – and after trying out all of   this    forbidden fruit … coming from the great deceiver – – the “ONE” who rules this world- –  but…  only for a TIME – – are now forced to  “FEEL”  like giving up – – of  all the early  and correct teaching , that we did receive…  when we small children. 

What are we waiting for???    Would  there  even be  someone… that you can think of – –  someone that  is strong enough to stand up…  and… work  against all of this down-grading of the human body  – – who.. when… why… have we  ever… allowed  an enemy   to so …  weaken our original system in AMERICA –  – – that  the “Fore-Fathers” did set up a very  good   system – of “Balances and Checks” – – so that this government  does not go into some lopsided position – – that it is falling into and  that will eventually turn AMERICA  – into a “third-world”  Country –  – – to where we will all find “Rot and Ruin” – – and – – –   Today…  we do not even have the “TEN COMMANDMENTS” – that would help us to know right and wrong- – and may be  put  us … on  to the  RIGHT ROAD!

John 8:32

And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
