Arguing with an Angel
15-1-13
“You should have a bit more faith. God will come through,” she said to me. Her eyes glowed from an inner light – the kind only Angels can have because of their direct connection to God.
“It’s different for me. Difficult for me to believe, to just have faith, like you,” I countered. “You were created an Angel. You have never not known God to provide for you. You have had a direct link to him all your life and have heard his voice in direct answer to your prayers.”
She smiled and nodded. “Yes, but you...”
“I was born a human and became an Angel when I died. I spent a life doubting the existence of God because of all the bad things in the world. When I prayed, it seemed as if God was deaf, and there was certainly no audible voice telling me what to do, how to do it and what the outcome would be.”
“Yes, but...”
“I went through things no person should have go

Happy Halloween everyone! I'm listening to tape (yes, a cassette tape) of an old radio play. It's the classic Orson Wells War of the Worlds broadcast. It reminds me of my dad who ordered recordings of old radio plays from a catalog and gave me some of those tapes. I miss my dad. He died on October 21, 2018. And to think I had visited him a couple weeks previous to that. And to think that would be the last time I would see him alive.
FYI on rabies treatment.
The whole “a bunch of painful shots to the stomach with a big needle” hasn’t been done since the 1980s. The most painful part of my rabies treatment was on Sunday, October 14, 2018. That’s when I got shots in all the open wounds. Yesterday’s rabies shot was a short stick in the butt. I don’t know about the shots I have to get on Sunday, October 21, and the next Sunday, October 28 yet.
I’m at Washington Hospital Center waiting for my next set of rabies shots. On Sunday morning, October 14th 2018, I was attacked and bitten on my right thigh and right hand by a rabid raccoon. I am teaching myself to make more use of my left hand while I wait for my right hand to heal and loosen up.

Three things I do not need to be told.
1. How my being is “inconveniencing” everyone else.
2. “Don’t pester the doctors with a whole bunch of questions.” Excuse me, but when it comes to my own health I want to participate in my own care by asking questions so I can be fully informed.
3. “A lot of other people in the world have it a lot worse than you do.” That may be true but my pain is still real to me.
The next www.deviantart.com/musicals-al… model challenge is now up! 
 I will going to visit my father for a couple days starting tomorrow. So in the meantime, have fun everyone!
My father passed away on October 21, 2018.

One of the things he was known for when he was alive was his email political rants and ramblings, humor, and generally passing along other things on the internet that interested him to the rest of the family. This is from his June 24, 2018 email. I'm presuming that whatever source he got these stories from is public domain. But I agree with him that these stories are well worth sharing.

“This is my second offering for your enjoyment today.  I have not authenicated it -- nor have I even tried.  It does not matter.  These stories are uplifting and well worth your consideration, regardless of whether they are real or made up.

Best wishes to all,
Dad, Grandpa, Uncle Toby, Cousin Toby, and just plain Toby


5) lessons about the way we treat people
1 - First Important Lesson - Cleaning Lady.


During my second month of college, our professor gave us a pop quiz. I was a conscientious student and had breezed through the questions until I read the last one:
 
"What is the first name of the woman who cleans the school?"

Surely this was some kind of joke. I had seen the cleaning woman several times. She was tall, dark-haired and in her 50's, but how would I know her name?

I handed in my paper, leaving the last question blank. Just before class ended, one student asked if the last question would count toward our quiz grade. 
 
"Absolutely, " said the professor.. "In your careers, you will meet many people.  All are significant. They deserve your attention and care, even if all you do is smile and say "hello.." 
 
I've never forgotten that lesson.. I also learned her name was Dorothy. 

 
2. - Second Important Lesson - Pickup in the Rain 
 
 One night, at 11:30 p.m., an older African American Woman was standing on the side of an Alabama highway trying to endure a lashing rain storm. Her car had broken down and she desperately needed a ride.  Soaking wet, she decided to flag down the next car.  A young white man stopped to help her, generally unheard of in those conflict-filled 1960's. The man took her to safety, helped her get assistance and put her into a taxicab.
She seemed to be in a big hurry, but wrote down his address and thanked him. Seven days went by and a knock came on the man's door. To his surprise, a giant console color TV was delivered to his home. A special note was attached. 
It read: 
"Thank you so much for assisting me on the highway the other night. The rain drenched not only my clothes, but also my spirits.  Then you came along.  Because of you, I was able to make it to my dying husband's' bedside just before he passed away... God Bless you for helping me and unselfishly serving others."
  
Sincerely, Mrs. Nat King Cole. 

3 - Third Important Lesson - Always remember those who serve. 
  

 
In the days when an ice cream sundae cost much less, a 10-year-old boy entered a hotel coffee shop and sat at a table. A waitress put a glass of water in front of him. 
 
"How much is an ice cream sundae?" he asked.

"Fifty cents," replied the waitress.
 
The little boy pulled his hand out of his pocket and studied the coins in it.
  
"Well, how much is a plain dish of ice cream?" he inquired. 
 
By now more people were waiting for a table and the waitress was growing impatient..
 
"Thirty-five cents," she brusquely replied.
  
The little boy again counted his coins.
  
"I'll have the plain ice cream," he said.
  
The waitress brought the ice cream, put the bill on the table and walked away The boy finished the ice cream, paid the cashier and left..  When the waitress came back, she began to cry as she wiped down the table.  There, placed neatly beside the empty dish, were two nickels and five pennies.. 
 
You see,  he couldn't  have the sundae, because he had to have enough left to leave her a tip. 

4 - Fourth Important Lesson. - The obstacle in Our Path. 
  
In ancient times, a King had a boulder placed on a roadway.  Then he hid himself and watched to see if anyone would remove the huge rock.  Some of the King's' wealthiest merchants and courtiers came by and simply walked around it..  Many loudly blamed the King for not keeping the roads clear, but none did anything about getting the stone out of the way.
  
Then a peasant came along carrying a load of vegetables.  Upon approaching the boulder, the peasant laid down his burden and tried to move the stone to the side of the road.  After much pushing and straining, he finally succeeded. After the peasant picked up his load of vegetables, he noticed a purse lying in the road where the boulder had been. The purse contained many gold coins and a note from the King indicating that the gold was for the person who removed the boulder from the roadway.  The peasant learned what many of us never understand!
  
Every obstacle presents an opportunity to improve our condition. 

  
  
5 - Fifth Important Lesson - Giving When it Counts... 
  
Many years ago, when I worked as a volunteer at a hospital, I got to know a little girl named Liz who was suffering from a rare & serious disease.  Her only chance of recovery appeared to be a blood transfusion from her 5-year old brother, who had miraculously survived the same disease and had  developed the antibodies needed to combat the illness.  The doctor explained the situation to her little brother, and asked the little boy if he would be willing to give his blood to his sister.

I saw him hesitate for only a moment before taking a deep breath and saying, "Yes I'll do it if it will save her."  As the transfusion progressed, he lay in bed next to his sister and smiled, as we all did, seeing  the color returning to her cheek. Then his face grew pale and his smile faded.

He looked up at the doctor and asked with a trembling voice, "Will I start to die right away".

 Being young, the little boy had misunderstood the doctor; he thought he was going to have to give his sister all of his blood in order to save her.
 

Now you have choices.
 
1 Delete this email, or


2. Forward it other people.


I hope that you will choose No. 2 and remember.

 
Most importantly....
”Live with no regrets, Treat people the way you want to be treated, Work like you don’t need the money, Love like you’ve never been hurt, and Dance like you do when nobody’s watching.”
 
NOW more than ever - Please...Pass It On... You never know how or when you'll be paid!

Obviously, my father chose to forward this to the rest of the family from whatever source he got these stories from.  No one is obligated to pass these stories on to other people but you can if you want to.  I think they're good stories but I do think the last one is a little dubious.  I don't think children are allowed to donate blood.  But I guess the idea behind that story was the little boy's willingness to give to help his sister.

Thank you! My birth year is in my username, so do the math. Do you think I’m too old to be playing with dolls?
