  1. What part of Kville? My wife's got a lot of family up there.
  2. Nice thread @johnnyAU I'm thankful to still be alive and able to be here for my wife & 2 girls. I'm thankful that The Lord continues to have purpose for me to serve Him, otherwise I WOULDN'T be here!!! I'm thankful that 2020 is a year that I don't care about AU football, much less any major sports (due to various reasons) so that Gus just doesn't bother me anymore. I'm thankful that our FL house is under contract and, Lord willing, we'll be living in the great Smoky Mountains by the 1st week of November! God bless y'all!
  3. I'm not sure if your question is directed to Belle or to me but we had no issues at all in SW FL. Just a lot of rain and not even lightning & thunder. On a side note.... That's another thing I won't miss about Florida!!!
  4. I'm with those who cannot access notifications on android. Also, I don't see where I can get into my account settings or see personal messages. Thanks.
  5. I'm so sorry to hear that about your parents. Especially your dad & children not getting the chance to meet. I pray they have the greatest meeting ever in heaven!!! Thanks again for the prayers brother.
  6. Thank you so much, brother. I appreciate every prayer sent up for me. They truly help me keep going! We're moving to Knoxville as my wife is originally from there and has a lot of family there. Plus, it's only 2-1/2 hrs or so from my family, who are in Ft. Payne, AL. I've helped move many friends over the years....one of the things that happens when own a pick-up, LOL....but unfortunately don't have the strength & stamina I used to. However, I think we're doing okay as far as moving as we're blessed that we should be able to afford movers once we pack (or get rid of) what we can.
  7. Brother, I wish I had a "❤+Infinity" emoticon for that one! Your example is true inspiration and I thank you. We had a friend come and help us yesterday in the warehouse....er....I mean garage and we got rid of SO MUCH stuff that would have taken a week by ourselves (I just don't have the strength & stamina I did a couple years ago). So blessed! Your so right about The Lord's timing. It may not be always what WE want, as I've been wanting to move for 2 years but we've always had something (usually medical) come up and keep us here. But now, our path to moving seems particula
  8. Hi friends. I'm sorry if dredging up this thread seems self-serving. I've just had quite a few personally & privately ask me for updates lately (which I appreciate SO MUCH) so rather than hijacking Tora's lookalike thread I thought I'd post an update for those interested, if that's okay. Again, thank you to ALL of you who continue praying for me & my family. As has been often said, "the cure is worse than the disease". I think this is literally the case with me. I've been praying and feel The Lord is leading me to do it HIS way, with holistic treatment & diet. People who
  9. Yes, I'm SO looking forward to an Autumn arrival. Pretty psyched as long as The Lord is willing! Thanks for the kind words!
  10. Thank you 3rdGen! Doing okay physically but spiritually doing much better. We are actually packing and preparing to FINALLY move to the Smokeys in late October. Please pray we stick to our deadline!🙏🙏🙏😁😁😁
  11. Hi @ToraGirl For you, I'll post something 2020 football season related. 😇 I DO hope all the members of AUFamily are doing well.
  12. All of this knowledge and he coaches Defense too!!!
  13. @Zeek I pray for you and your family. I certainly felt a kinship with your Mom after you told us about her. I am sorry brother, as I can only imagine your sadness in missing her and I pray that peace and joy finds you and your family soon. Our faith keeps my family & me going and I hope you too will find some comfort in this: Isaiah 40:31 NKJV "But those who wait on the Lord Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint." God bless brother!
  14. When I read of such a young life going through a seemingly insurmountable struggle, it makes me think of my own situation, though a bit older, and having the knowledge that The Lord is in control even if we're told by Drs that our time is short. Whether here on earth, or if He's ready for me now, it brings me comfort as I pray for strength for my loved ones to know: Revelation 21:4‭-‬5 NKJV "And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.” Then He who sat on
  15. Thank you Mav. I appreciate it so much. I'm sorry to sound self-serving but I do thank everyone who prays for me & my family still. I/we certainly have had a lot going on the last few months ourselves, with ups & downs, but nothing compared to Bird's family. God bless!
  16. Brother Bird... Isaiah 41:10 NKJV "Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’" Brother, you know I'm here praying. I believe The Lord is caring for His believers as we speak as I know that the only reason I'm still even here is Him. I know he's caring for James too. James has so much fight in him. I can picture him gut-punching & head-slapping satan as we speak! His toughness and faith in the face of such unspeakable darkness is truly amazing! Ja
  17. Sometimes, when I'm feeling upset, frustrated, depressed..... I am reminded that my problems are so minor compared to many others. I pray that our good Lord has mercy on this young man, Wyatt, & his family. The fact that he shows humor and patience in light of this sudden condition......I am totally embarrassed to ever complain about my "problems". God always has a way to humble us. I am humbled. May God bless Wyatt. I pray for a miraculous healing!
  18. @Mikey I am praying for your daughter, you and your entire family. I am sorry for the news but encouraged by your update. It is good that you share it here as there are many good souls who pray powerfully on this board. THAT, I can attest to personally! Philippians 4:19 God bless brother! Nathan
  19. @Zeek It sounds like you have a great attitude about all of this and judging from your Mom's attitude, I can see where you get it from. I pray for continuing strength for you all and the joy of peace through Jesus Christ. God bless, brother!
  20. 3rd Gen. It ain't whining...it's venting to friends! Yes, we've all got issues, but each of our issues are each personal to us...if that makes sense. We're here for you!
  21. Totally agree. Excellent points all! I have found myself VERY guilty of this at times recently. I am praying often "Lord please grant me the strength to just trust You and know that You will guide me to lead my family the way we need to go." Fortunately, we who trust God's Word know how it'll all end up, which is a blessing. We just need to try and gain as many more to trust Him too as we can. I have recently grown very certain that political discussions are just the devil's domain now and I try to stay out. I'm not always successful, as obviously I have beliefs, opinio
  22. HAHA! I appreciate it. But back in the late '80s, with a negative GPA (only slightly exaggerating), and playing for terrible teams in the country 'burbs it was more like they were slumming it and offering me the honor to visit them. Trust me, I wasn't anything overly special. Matter of fact, me looking back on it is like this:
  23. Oh there are no rules about that obviously, LOL! I'm just weird that way. I admit. I never even liked to watch golf until I started playing it in my early 30's. I never was GOOD at it but at least played a reasonable facsimile of the game, so I grew to love it & watching it....until neuropathy took it away. I only like watching hockey in person....there IS something about that game that's beautiful in person but a snooze-fest on TV. ....and no, I can't ice skate. Oh, I wasn't recruited by anybody big at all. In football I got looks at by Presbyterian College, Valdosta
  24. Gwill, you are one of my faves all time! I love how you keep life in perspective that it's just a ride to be made the most of with people whether they agree, disagree or not care. I love you man! Truth is, I LOVE Bruce! He embodies the enthusiasm, desire & tradition that made college athletics so passionate & great. My problem is the game of basketball itself. Not that there's anything wrong with the game....just that I ALWAYS sucked at it, even from an early age, so I never grew the passion for it like I did baseball and football. After all, I actually received looks fr
  25. Wow, brother! That brought me to tears..... Lots of personal stuff for me in that 40 minutes! I don't know really what to say other than I hope many watch and yes, it's a message that should be able to speak to anyone today....on both sides of the fence. The Lord is working and using today's issues to teach some & warn others. This dude gets it! Beautiful message, thanks for sharing.
