STORIES OF MY LIFE AND TOLD IN ONE DAY....

*My heart stopped dead in February of 1998. I was legally dead for about 10 

minutes the first time and for 1 to 2 minutes about 3 times after that.  The 

doctors said that I suffered some brain damage as a result and would only live

for about a year if my sources are correct. So, I'm still upon this earth after 19

years this last month. Why am I still alive? I remember at the time I was upset 

because being dead for those few minutes was the most peaceful time in my 

life. 

There are some questions I've thought about since my heart stopped. Why was I 

allowed to live and some small child was made to die? Could not a small child 

add more to the goodness of the world with many years of life left to live than 

I who have just a few or more years left to live? I do not understand the working 

of our Lord and the Heavens? Will I never know the answers to these questions?

Perhaps not. 

But I still believe a child with many years left to live should live in place of me who 

has only a few short years of life to live.

was overshadowed by crass human rights violations and the occupation of East 

Timor.

President Harry S. Truman defined his foreign relations priorities, which 

included military and economic support to Turkey and Greece to prevent the 

spread of communism there.

*1938 Hitler invades Austria. The occupation of Hitler's homeland is known as 

Anschluss, which is the German word for annexation.

act of civil disobedience to protest the British monopoly on salt. It was one of the 

most significant events during the Indian independence movement.

Russian capital following the Revolution of 1917, which dismantled the Tsarist 

autocracy.

QUOTES, RAMBLINGS AND SUCH

*Another quote I remember from long ago, "if you can't cut the mustard, honey,

get out of the basement." Thank you, Lord, for allowing me to remember things

from my distant past.

*"If you are looking to restore your energy, look younger, and reverse disease 

then ashwagandha may be the herb you’re looking for. As you’re about to see, 

ashwagandha benefits are impressive.

Ashwagandha, is an adaptogenic herb popular in Ayurvedic medicine that has 

shown incredible results for lowering cortisol and balancing thyroid hormones.

In India, ashwagandha is known as the “strength of the stallion” since it has 

traditionally been used to strengthen the immune system after illness.

Ashwagandha has also been referred to as Indian ginseng because of its ability 

to enhance stamina and has extraordinary stress relieving properties."
