I just wanted to say Happy Thanksgiving and thank you because you are a big blessing to those you write to. In myself I have notice that I have gotten to read your e-mails all the time, at first only a few or maybe not at all, but I love the way you explain things WITH the Bible. Like when you responded to Lee's letter that was awesome. I'm so thankful to God for giving you
the patients and the love for the people to be doing this. You are a great person that is reaching God's people one day at a time. Thank you and hope you have a great Thanksgiving. Take care of you and many blessings to you and your house whole.
Love,
Candy :o)

Jim,
I'm sitting at my computer working on paperwork that is due in two days.
I just read your thought for the day and wanted to let you know that my day
will now be made easier because of it! I miss you and Granny and I'm coming to see you
when school is out!
Lots of love!

Hi Jim. May God bless you my friend. Looked at your thought of the day, and thought it was wonderful. Would love for you to add me to the email list. The thought of the day was right
down my alley, and you will never know how it lifted up my spirits. Kinda like you was
yesterday I guess. hehehehe. Thanks again for your testimony for our Lord Jesus.

Hi My Brother;
I don't know how many people have written you concerning your thought for today.
That is why I am writing. To me, it is a Blessing. An e-mail that I look forward to each day.
I read, I study, I pray not only for the ones you request prayer for, but also the ones you don't.
I pray for you; that God will continue to bless you and let you continue to write and witness
to others. Through your thought for today, I have become so much closer to Jesus. I would like to say "Thank You" from the depths of my heart and soul. A few days back I was searching for an answer to a problem.

When I received your thought for that particular day, the answer I was searching for was included. I knew what I had to do; I knew what Jesus wanted me to do.
Yes, God does work in mysterious ways. Through your thought, He sent my answer.
What an awesome and powerful God we serve. Don't stop writing your thought for today.
Again, "Thank You" for sharing your knowledge of Jesus with those who enjoy receiving
The Word of God. May God continue to Bless you and your family.
Your Brother In Christ,
Melvin
I LOVE JESUS

At first I thought I wouldn't have time to read your thoughts
for the day, Jim, now I look forward to them so much!
Thank you.

Hi Jim,
Just love your 'Thought for today' and all you send, I'm always blessed by receiving your mail. I have made a new page I would like to share called 'Something Better'. I don't know the author, but thought it was so beautiful that I wanted to make a page for it. Listen to the wonderful wav.file called 'That Name'.

I wanted to stop for a few minutes to Thank You for sending your thoughts and God to me. I do not always have time to read all the emails you send, but I do print them and send them to my son, who is in prison. He is 30, and has finally been kept still long enough to hear God speak to him. He loves it when I send him your emails, and I had to let you know what a
blessing you have been in mine and my son's life....
MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND KEEP YOU,,,,,,

Thank You,,,Joy

Praise The Lord and Pass The Ammunition!
Dear Jim,
Thank you for the WONDERFUL explanation. I thought that when the door was closed it was Jesus saying that it is finished, YOU have LOST your SOUL. WHEW! What a relief.
By the way, my other friends felt what I felt.
I really enjoy your letters and daily Scriptures. They bring much needed knowledge and great spiritual comfort to my soul. Keep them coming!
Blessings In His Holy Name,
Judith

Jim,
Unlike those others you mentioned, I do read the 'Thought for Today". And when I miss one, I get it the next day with the new one. When Dad was so sick and Linda was here, we missed a couple, but I did get caught up.. *S* There is always a way.. I really appreciate you taking the time to do the messages, and there are many days, they are exactly what I need for the day!!!
God Bless,
Andrea

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I had to send this one. I hope you don't mind. Maybe you can use it to make a page with. I really enjoyed the letter you sent to Martin. He will be in my prayers. I pray that he can find Jesus. A prayer for you, my brother:

Dear Heavenly Father, I ask You to bless my brother so that he can continue to write and spread Your Name across the internet. I ask You Dear Heavenly Father to lay a healing hand on my brother. Be with him Lord each day for he is such an encouragement for me to continue on. He is an inspiration to many who believe in You; Give him the strength Oh Heavenly Father to make it through each trying day. I pray Dear Heavenly Father to meet my brother in Heaven some sweet day and to kneel at Your feet and worship You.
I also pray to run a foot race with my brother, and laugh and sing praises unto You.
Only your Name is worthy to be worshipped and praised.
In Jesus Name,
AMEN
I love you my brother.

Good Morning Jim, 
I sent an invitation out to some of my friends and family members and told them about your Website and about your 'Daily Thoughts' and devotionals. So you may have some new names/email address to add to your mailing list for Daily Thoughts. I told them how much my husband and I enjoy getting them each day. I went yesterday and visited your Website again. I sure enjoyed the music and reading there!
In Christ,
Tammy Boatman-Young

Dear Jim:
I just finished reading this "Thought" again. Since I found you, I have read
all your Thoughts and I would never delete one, no matter how busy I am.
I find your Scripture selections and your thoughts inspirational and on many
occasions, comforting. Those unfortunate souls who do delete your pages just
don''t know what they are missing.
May God Bless You.
Love'
Dorothy

Dear Jim:

Hi Jim,
Found the error.. LOL Me and my bad typing.
"http://communities.msn.com/appaloosahorses" Try that one. I spelled
communities wrong the first time. I should know by now to check my spelling
on here. I get so busy doing too many things at one time, and just never
think to check them. This should work fine. Let me know what you think.
Been enjoying the Thouhts for the Day,, even though some of them have taken you awhile. The Lord finally gets through and you get it done,, that's the main thing. RIGHT!! Talk to you later. Cindy    Appy Trails Cherokee
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Thank you for answering me, I know how busy you must be. I have no idea if my son is saved or not. That is sad, but I do know he awaits for anything I send to him to help teach him more of our God. I have sent him a Bible that is easy for him to read and understand. He says he prays everyday and reads his Bible. I Thank God for you and honesty of your style. I enjoy the ones I
read and I do print up all of them. That way, I have something to read when I need to know that my problems are small compared to other people. I. too have to Thank Melvin for sending you this way. I have been truly blessed!
May God Keep you on here for a long, long, long time......
Joy, My son's name is Wesley
All prayers are welcomed!!!!!!!!!

Erik( Barnabas) has been sending me your thoughts for the day.. They
have blessed and inspired me.... I have not been online but a few minutes once in awhile since the 1stweek in May, due to illness. I am feeling 50% better. Thanks be to God!! I am looking forward to complete healing.
My mailbox stays full a lot.. having a webtv and being offline. If this
presents a problem to you. I understand, if you would prefer not to add
me. Erik will keep my name on his mailing list but since he now has a
computer, I noticed today that your music is not on there.. maybe that
is just a fluke..
Keep up the good work. God's light shines thru you.
In His Love,
Mary Ann <><

May God Bless You
Jim & Connie,
It touches my heart to know that Dorothy was moved by my work. Thank you for sending her comments to me but it is I that needs to thank her for
recognizing the talent that God has given Us. Your sites are truly wonderful Jim and I am so proud that I am your cousin. To be compared in your company honored me and made my day. If you would, thank Dorothy for me.
Give all a BIG HUG

Hi Jim,
I enjoy your Thoughts For Today. They are up lifting to me. I Know you are doing GOD's Work because the devil is really attacking you. But the devil Knows GOD's Power is greater than any problem the devil can attack us with. May GOD Bless you.
Janice

Hi Jim;
I know it is late, or is it early? I so much enjoy your messages. You don't beat
around the bush. You tell it like the Bible tells it. I will continue to pray for Martin; and I hope someday he sees the light before it is too late. The time is drawing nigh when our Precious Savior will appear in the Eastern sky. Then it will be to late for Martin. You just keep preaching the Word of God; The Bible. I pray that you and I are standing side by side when our Precious Savior appears. Please add the music back to your e-mail.
It means so much to me. Good Night My Brother. may a band of angels watch over you and all that is yours. I love you and appreciate you for what you are teaching me. I pray that God gives you strength and encouragement to continue on with
"My Thought For Today."
God Bless You My Brother,
Melvin

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Thank you for your daily messages. They really keep me going sometimes and make me laugh and cry at other times. I will pray for you as always (esp. this week) and stay safe in all that rain the weather channel says you are having (or going to have). I agree with you about God sending angels down to protect us from ourselves. We had a really close call last month. I was visiting our family in Texas for my sister's graduation - my husband stayed home to work. At about 10 p.m. he heard a terrible crash that sounded like someone slammed into our garage (both of our cars were parked outside in the driveway).

He looked out the window and saw that a truck that had been parked up on the hill above us had rolled down backwards and had crashed into the fire hydrant about 3 feet from where my car was parked. If it had hit, my car would have smashed sideways into my husband's brand new work truck that we had just bought. The Lord was surely watching out for us that night.
Praise the Lord!!
God Bless You!! I'll be praying for your surgery!!

HI JIM, YOU SEE THIS FACE DON'T YOU/?? YOU BETTER TAKE CARE OF
YOURSELF, I WAS GLAD TO HEAR FROM YOU, BUT YOU NEED TO TAKE
CARE OF YOURSELF FIRST!!!! YOU DO WHAT THAT DOCTOR SAYS NOW!!!
WE ALWAYS ENJOY YOUR EMAILS!! WE LOOK FORWARD TO THEM EVERYDAY!! YOU HAVE BECOME IMPORTANT TO US AND WE JUST WANT YOU TO TAKE CARE OF YOU!!!! NOW, THAT I HAVE FUSS AT YOU!!!
I WILL SAY HELLO AND A GOOD BYE!!!!
MAY GOD BLESS YOU SPIRITUALLY AND PHYSICALLY,
IN CHRISTIAN LOVE AND PRAYERS,\ PATSY

I believe if in some small way you keep one soul from Hell, you will be blessed many times. I'm having health problems and messages such as yours really helps me!! May you be blessed each and every day for your efforts in sending out these messages.

Dear Jim,
Thank you for today's message. I really needed those verses! I know now that Our Lord and Savior is very much in control of my life and that through you, He has sent me just what I needed to hear. The past week has been a difficult one, that required me to stand for what I believe and own up to my own shortcomings. I have been searching all week for scripture to let me know that
I had done the right thing. This was exactly what I needed, praise God!
I learned today that this past week was where I acted as the faithful steward and I look to Jesus to be the judge of my actions. Like Paul says:
[4] For I know nothing by myself; yet am I not hereby justified: but he that judgeth me is the Lord.
Thank you again for the special verses.
Your sister in Christ,
Phyllis Card.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 
Now you went and made me cry. That is so beautiful. Shame on you for bringing tears to these old eyes. I too look in the mirror and see "sin." I am reminded daily of the sins of my youth. I could never live long enough to adequately thank almighty God for giving me (us) His beloved son Jesus Christ to die an excruciating death on an old rugged cross for my sins
and the sins of the world. Praise The Lord! Praise Him Fore ever! Shame on you. I can't stop crying. Blessings in HIS name. Judith

LOVE YOU. LINDA WESSELLS

Dear Jim,
I just got through reading the stories on your site, how utterly
beautiful it ALL is, I cannot tell you how touched I am. I am grateful
to God because, He led me to your site. Thank You from the depth of my
soul, for all of this beauty, it causes me to feel so close to God. You
are a wonderful person, and you must love Jesus very much.
Thank you again, and may God Bless you, and I pray that He will heal you.
Love In His Wonderful Name

Dear JIM,
I want to just praise God for you!!!!!!!!!!! You are A- OK in my
book!!!!! Thank God there are some men like you left in this world. When
I read your letter, I felt like I was back in the 1940's out in the
little country church where I went, and I heard strong bold preachers
talk like this, andd tell it like it is. Oh! how my heart longs to go
back and be in a church where the preachers were bold enough to tell it
like it really is. You sure did. This ole 70 year old child, of God is so
PROUD OF
YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
YOU ARE 1OOO% RIGHT.
LOVE IN OUR KINGS NAME JESUS, not mohammed or budda
or satan,or some other false thought up god.
Blanche

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I thank God for you and all your family every day Jim. Your real special to
my heart and how God has knitted us together. Often I vote your sites and
never even make it to mine - he he....but God is faithful! I know I have
not fixed this signature yet and someday will I guess since I'm starting to
use this email more now.
Blessings,
Lynne

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Jim,
I don't know how I came across your webpage, but I bless the day that I did You don't know and won't this side of heaven just what your emails have meant to me. I won't bore you with a lot of compliments, but right now I am writing this with tears. Maybe I just needed to cry a little and God used your page to help me brim over, but thank you for today's msg. I take it Dianne either is not married or is having a problem in her marital life. I have 2
girls and 2 boys, and I can relate. It happens whether we are God's kids or not! Yep, we pay the consequences of our choices and sometimes the thing that hurts the most is that we feel that some of the pain our children go through in their personal lives are the results of some of OUR choices along the way!
Thanks again, and keep the sweet spirit. Regards to Connie girl, Dianne and all.

Jim,
Amen and Amen!!! That was a great letter, right down to the end.. Thank you so much for sharing it with all, and if there were some believing in salvation by baptism, hopefully this has explained it.. If not, then they are not allowing the Holy Spririt to guide them, and are
blind to the truth.. Jim, this is such a great letter..
Sure do wish I could have been close and listened to you as you preached.. You are a great teacher, a true Christian of the bible... and yes, abiding by the scripture. Bet you were one of
the very best preachers too!!!   Andrea

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 
Jim,
I thank you and encourage you to continue with this. All we as Christians can do, is spread the truth, as you said, it's up to others what they do with the knowledge. It can be sad and discouraging but, you and I both know, that one day we will be judged before Christ, and I for one am secure in the fact that spreading His word is what He wants and expects of us.
We may sometimes feel like "outcasts" and we may sometimes "take some heat" for what we believe. It won't be us though, that ends up "taking the heat" for eternity. I thank God for you Jim. (By the way, I'm only 32, and I am in complete agreement with you, so, it's not an "old-timer" thing!! Ha Ha)
Love in Christ, Maureen

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 
Dear Jim. sorry you have to deal with such ignorance from someone that
is not truly given his life to the Lord, Let him deal with his ignorance
and you rest in the Lord, and don't stress yourself out with such
stubborn people we can only pray for his rebellious spirit and his
grudge he seems to have on you, You are the most knowledgeable soul I
have ever met and the most Godly, please take care of your self, and
stay stress free my dear friend , love in our Christ, aby

 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
You and Connie certainly have a beautiful home and the decorations really look great. God bless you and your family and we hope your health improves. You are doing a great work on the computer.
Love in Him

Thanks Jim for this and thank you for just being you and caring
enough to tell people like me just what is good and what is false .
I missed you while you were gone .So welcome back and
Happy Holidays

Good Afternoon Jim!
Just wanted to write and let you know that Rick and I have so much enjoyed each and every one of your emails and letters! They're all wonderful and interesting and have been such a blessing to us here. Thank you for the beautiful Christmas email greeting card too!
Those candles that are on the email you sent, are so pretty. I donít' know how to do that on an email like that. I'm still learning how to use my computer here. I haven't been on line in about three weeks now as there's been so much going on here.
My only daughter Shelley is in the hospital so if you could add her to your prayer list, I'd sure appreciate it. She's still having such a hard time about her brother, my son Jeff dying. She saw him die and it has had a terrible effect on her. She has been Bulemic and has been battling that disease now. But we think she will pull thru' and be okay. By the Grace of God. My husband Rick has recently had a mild stroke. The doctor said it was the stress of Jeff
dying but Rick is better and can move around pretty much as normal, except that his left side is kinda numb now. He's still working and is handling the pain from his left side the best he can. Please remember us in your prayers. As if getting older wasn't bad enough, ha.
All this. This just hasn't been a good year for us. But then again Jim, it's always a good year because we have Christ living in our hearts! I am doing fine except for my brand new thyroid problem. Well, the Dr. I went to gave me some pills to take for it and when I got home, before taking them, I decided to look them up and be sure the pills were safe. I ended up throwing them away after finding out that the pills he gave me for my thyroid were dangerous and for severe heart patients. I called this Doctor up and asked him if my heart was okay and he said "yes, your heart is fine, nothing wrong with it" so I asked him why he gave me some dangerous heart pills. He had no answer. Go figure!! I have gotten to where I donít trust too many doctors these days. You have been in our prayers Jim and as you are a dear brother in Christ to us.
God Bless you and keep the wonderful emails/letters coming! I may not respond too often, what with all this going on , but we treasure them all. Your daily thoughts and devotionals are always a blessing to us! 
Your friend in Christ always
Tammy B. Young
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Jim,
The man who had his feelings hurt and wanted off your list has missed the blessing. Just like you, I preach the Gospel without compromise and if it steps on peoples toes I just say "I'm sorry because I was aiming for your heart." I commend you for not backing off sir. We live in a time today where more preachers need to stand up in their pulpits and preach with power instead of with a powder puff.
Rev Bill Kinney
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Well Glory! You've done it again! You've preached the gospel! Right on
Jim<<<You do come on strong sometimes, but we need meat not milk!
May the Holy Spirit continue to talk to you....Susie
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 
Amen, Brother Jim, thank you for the wonderful email to L, you are a
blessing to me and look forward to your word on the Lord for I know it
is from the bible and the holy spirit that is in you,, I get feed on it
daily, and it gives me strength, faith, and courage to walk with our
Lord, God Bless You,, always, aby
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I just want say,the last paragraph of your letter to him said it all!
I felt the holy spirit allover me. I forword to your messages
and delete lots of others, also found lots of other wonderful
sites from you. God bless you and your family this holy season.
Billie J

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Very well put, Jim..
I have no idea what the person's problem is, because all you send makes good sense and is from the bible, excluding the jokes.. But there .... is a time for laughter and dancing even!! And God did not intend this world to look like a prune with no happiness, smiles and laughter among the seriousness that we face daily..
I say "well done" Jim.. and God bless you.. Stick with preaching the Word to others, just as Christ did not quit, do not ever quit. There are too many out there 'needing the Word'.... Love hearing from you, have since I met you and so glad we have remained friends through the year.. You have been a very dear friend, in fact think I was one of the first on your contacts, and very proud of it. You do a great ministry on here, and I thank God for giving you the knowledge to get through to so many each day, and giving you the health and strength to go
on with it.
Christian hugs, to you, a fine Baptist preacher!! and a very fine Christian friend!!!
Andrea

Hello,
I know I do not write often, but this letter that was written to you, well, it hurt me. You see, your words are a comfort to my son(who is in prison), your thoughts are food for his soul and talking of all the things that happen around you are a look to the outside and life of someone who is Blessed. I thank God and You. Please fill my email all you want. I print it out and send it to my baby in Prison and some of the other inmates also read them and I can not help but believe that you have reached more souls than you know. I will pray for this person as they do
not know just how blessed I have been for knowing you through God.
Thank You.........Joy

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Thank you so much Jim...you have explained this extremely well!!
This sheds light on something I have wondered about for a long time and never really got a satisfactory answer to until now.
God Bless you...I am sure every day you put out a "Thought" it is something someone along the line is going to reap a "nugget" from....I know I sure do!!
Thanks again, and have a wonderful Lord's Day...
Your Sister in Christ,
Linda

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Dear Jim:
THANKS so much for your response to my letter! I made a print copy of your letter, so I would not lose it (this would be just the time I'd lose a message when I NEED to keep it!). I appreciate your help, and keeping me in your personal file until I get things straightened out. I saved your message in Microsoft word documents also. I think my e-mails are not reaching
you, because I am using incorrect letters. Once, I sent it "...con", then "c0 (zero) n". I am sending it now "...con", and praying it reaches you. If it does, I will promptly write again with a prayer request. Meanwhile, I will study your notes (after brailling them out on my braille embosser) and perhaps I will then know what to do.
Thanks again!!!!
Elizabeth Slaughter   
NOTE:  This is from my blind friend in Minn. Her PC talks and she works in Brail.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Jim,
Amen, and Amen! Good for you! I loved your letter you answered back to this person with, Jim! Please don't ever change! I'm so glad you stick to your guns and are not afraid to step on some toes! I have always said, I love to go to Church or hear a friend talking about the Lord who is not afraid to tell the truth about God's Holy Word! Keep your wonderful emails coming to us because they brighten up our days and we love them. And they're all enlightening and interesting and we look forward to them all. 
Your friends in Christ always,
Tammy B. and Rick Young

Happy New Year Jim. I have been on vacation and just catching up with my email today. You keep filling up my email box and don't let this person tell you otherwise. I love what you send
us and you keep on sending what the Holy Spirit tells you to!! Keep up the wonderful work you have been doing. I have gained so much knowledge since I joined your list. Love in Christ, Betty-Jo

I'm thankful everyday for you and what you are doing. What you sent brought tears to my eyes. We need to be reminded just what our blessed Savior did for us, don't we? Everything is hurry and many things to do each day....thanks for jogging my memory. What a talent you have been given and you are putting it to good use. This has my day off to a good start and rain doesn't upset me!!

HE ALSO NEEDS LIFTED UP, AS HE SURE HAS A FULL PLATE, AND HE WORKS SO HARD, AND FEELS HELPLESS WITH ALL WE HAVE  HAD TO DEAL WITH.
I WILL BE LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING YOUR SIGHT IF I CAN.

THANK YOU AND I AM PRAYING THAT YOUR SIGHT WILL TOUCH MANY HEARTS FOR OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST!!!! BYE FOR NOW . GOD BLESS YOU,

I would like to say, that you seem precious. Donít worry that you are not able
to visit, because you are doing great work here. You write so beautiful, you
move people to tears. thank you so much,   Beverly Burden
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I would love to hear you preach, maybe not five hours but close. I pray
to be that beacon of light, especially to my daughter. she is addicted to
prescription drugs. Then when I am around her, I am very impatient with her,
and say things, it is so hard. this has been going for so long, she has used
me and her children to get these drugs, I donít know what to do for her
except to pray. Lord let me be a light for her. And control my mouth, I am on
oxygen all of the time so that helps with my breathing.
But what you were talking about sounds real good. God bless you Jim. you
have been such a blessing to me these past months, Alto you don't know me
I kinda feel like I know you and your family, keep us in your prayers yours
will be in mine, Billie

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Jim, Thank you so much!!! That was the most awesome story I ever heard. I felt it in my heart when I read the words. Thank you again. I am forwarding this on. You are a blessing to me and have a blessed day.

Jim,
This is hilarious! The pictures and what you wrote for each one is sooooo funny! I can't wait to show this to Rick when he gets home. He's going to love it! I can't believe he got that tractor stuck like that either! hee hee! This is just too funny. Keep 'em coming, we love them all!

Brother Jim,
I am praying for this dear family. I know it will be hard on them, but Jesus
is always near. Thank you for using the song, "Supper Time", with this prayer request. I have not heard that song in years. My mind is flooded with memories of times gone by. I think of that small country church we use to pastor. I still can hear that little choir singing. Some of those dear saints have been called home ,its supper time. One day soon Jesus is going to say, Its Suppertime, come on home. Until that day we shall keep on preaching the BOOK ,the BLOOD, and the BLESSED HOPE until its "SUPPER TIME"
God Bless my dear brother.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Hi Jim,
I am sooo happy to hear from you.  I have been worried and it is nice that is everything is ok.  Your little flock misses you when you are away J .  Please give my deepest sympathies to your bride Connie.  I praise God that he healed you from your burns.  What an awesome God we serve. 
Take care and God bless you,
Betty-Jo

Jim,
God is good all the time and He will never leave nor forsake us..
Sounds like lots of love at your place...Sounds like kind of place my hubby and I would like   smiles
Thank you for the news today

Jim...
    WELCOME BACK!!  Been missing you.  Been praying for you...We aren't licked yet, are we??  Old Satan just threw in a snag or two, but we can whip him, can't we? Be much in prayer for a dear friend and cousin of mine, Rev. Robert Phillips, known around here as Bro. Robert.  He is in the hospital with cancer and is in much pain. 
He misses not being able to visit the sick and shut ins.  No matter if you weren't a member of his church he would visit just by knowing of your situation, and no matter if it were Evansville, Nashville, Madisonville, or any of the other hospitals in our area, he'd go if called to go.  In my book, few people would qualify for my saying that!!
Still praying for you........
Bonnie

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

yes i really missed you. i sent you and connie a couple of easter messages and an easter poem and they did come back returned to me. i couldn't figure out what was going on but then i knew i hadn't heard from you for a long time and that you were probably having computer problems or changing servers again. anyway, hope you all did have a nice easter and a blessed one. sorry to hear about your accident but you are like me......... if it wasn't for bad luck we wouldn't have any at all well, that isn't really true cause i have a lot of good luck too but i think some of the bad luck is brought on ourselves. i know mine is. i'm always doing something stupid hey, jim boy!!!!!! guess what??????? i am coming to kentucky on june the 4th which is on a friday. i will be coming to my cousins house in centertown first.me and phyllis are planning on coming to see you all. we will probably come on sat. the 5th. let me know if this will work out for you all.i will call you before we come to find out how to get
there.i am really getting excited! i can't wait to meet you all. now danny had told me and phyllis that he was going to try to come down to your house so we could meet them too.
i have to e-mail danny and let him know when i am coming. he has been real sick with the flu and now he is off the computer for awhile. i hope he is not in the hospital. i'll be waiting to hear from you. so long for now. Brenda
Hey, Jim, was wondering where u were.  Glad u are back on line.  And so sorry about the death in the family.  Always sad times,...Bless her heart, always hard to lose someone that u love. Our prayers will be with her for sure.  U all take care. 
Glad to see u back, look forward to your emails.  Delores

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hi Jim,
Glad to see you are back on line.  I love your music.  I sent a tape to your uncle Danny Curtis called God's Way to Ultimate Health, and after reading some of your emails I can tell that you are a prime candidate to watch this tape and get yourself healed.  If you would allow me to have your home address so that I may send you this tape, I guarantee you will feel so much better.  I also have 2 tapes by Dr Lorraine Day who healed herself of Cancer.  I watched her tapes again last week and forgot how powerful they are.  I want you to keep these tapes and watch them over & over.  Just call me Dr Dena.  I get so excited when I find new people to share this message with.
Love in Jesus,
Dena Garrison

So Glad you are ok and like I would tell the kids you be more careful, but bet Connie girl has already told you that God Bless and have a wonderful weekend.

Hi brother Jim,....I didn't want to do it this way, I copied and pasted it into a new email, too bad it didn't show the picture.  Thank you so much for sending me a personal email letter.  I know I have been slack at emailing, I'm doing a lot of reading, I got this whole set the Left Behind series books, there are 11 and the last volume #12 is coming out end of this month, besides reading those books and the Bible, and by the time I go through all my emails, my eyes don't want to focus any more,  but I do check me email every day, I do really enjoy reading all of yours,  I love to hear about all things at there at the Bar K Ranch, around here we don't have any Ranch like yours.  I read everything with great interest, and your Thoughts for the Day with all the scripture verses. I thank the good Lord every day that you're still with us to keep this ministry going, it sure has been a blessing, and it's so great that He (the Lord) has given you so many to minister to, it's over 450 you have in your little flock now.....Jesus is so wonderful...glory to His name..
Sister in Christ, Hilda :-)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hi Brother Jim!
So nice to hear from you again,...sure missed you and your emails, yes I was wondering why my mail to you came back, I thought I'd give it a while in case you just had computer problems again.  I guess I should have called, didn't know that you had burned your face, Praise God that you're better, you've been in my prayers and thoughts, I must admit that I haven't been on the computer as much lately, because I've been reading, these Left Behind series books are interesting though they're fiction but the prophecies of God's word are true.  Yes sure I'll keep Connie's family in my prayers. God bless you and your family and this ministry of yours.
Love yous all, Hilda

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Jim, am SO GLAD you are back---was so worried about you(also wondered if I had messed up somehow!)  Do so hope you stay well and NO MORE acid tricks, please! God Bless you and yours, and keep up God's work!

It is a beautiful day, this is the day the Lord has made, for us to go out and enjoy the beauty of the new and rebirth of nature around us, and cut the grass.

Dear Bro. Jim,
I missed you while you were away. My husband, Ernest and I really  enjoy your mail. I enjoyed the little music that you send. We have a new computer so maybe we can open every thing you send. We also have a new address ( ninacarol712@aol.com. So glad you are back on and grateful to know you weren't hurt bad. Thanks for what you do.
Your bro. & sis. In Christ,
Carol & Ernest Phillips

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hi there, glad to have you back on. I was so worried after all my email came back. I was afraid something had happen to you or Miss Connie. Finely I used my ole Okie noggin and rambled thought stuff and found Steve's add. He had sent out email on your behalf when you were ill. He told me you were having pc problems. So see even if you didn't  wanted to you are stuck with me. (smile) I pray for you and yours all the time. Many a time I have really been down and you say just the right thing that day to cheer me up. I  gave my daughter the extra cd you sent me. She has about a 40 min commute to work, she has really enjoyed it (like mother like daughter).
 The weather here today is just beautiful, had lunch on the back patio and really enjoyed the mocking birds. Clarence is a farmer, he is always telling me God told him to do this job this way or that. He is so funny , we have been married 19 years today. Can you imagine a Holiness marrying a Catholic who by the way said he would never change his religion.? But God had other plans for that Portagee. He had a 14 hour surgery 2 years ago to remove a tumor from his acoustic nerve. It was resting on his brain stem. When he woke up in ICU  he had 3 angels in his room. He now tell the world about his 3 angels. He had become a christian about 5 years ago, and really gives God his praise.
 Guess I better quit my rambling and just say to you WELCOME BACK May God be with you and yours. Jackie Dutra


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hi Jim,
Yes, I missed you very much, I am sorry that you had to go through that with your server, but I thank God for your new server.  I also thank God that you had your glasses on that could been very dangerous for your eyes, but knowing that you are better that is all that matters! be careful while you are in the garage.  I have been sick for some time, almost as long as you have been off, but feel better now.
May God be with you all the way.
Mary

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Brother Jim,  I have prayed for your little flock and my heart goes out to them all / The ones that have lost or are loosing their infant  babies Jim if you go to the sight Jesus has a rocking chair and read the story about where these babies go / It is beautiful and helps knowing that Jesus is holding these children and rocking them. I know the pain / my daughter lost her 7 month term baby and she was devastated / I read this story to her and she said it helped / It did not take the pain away for sometime but the vision of her unborn child in the arms of Jesus Kept her going. Maybe if you go to the site you can e-mail it to them and it might help. / You are a blessing to all / I pray that God keeps you healthy so you can continue with your ministry / you touch so many lives / I live in Ohio and send your prayer request out so others may pray / May God bless you Brother Jim / your sister in Christ name / Valerie

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hello Jim, it's been a long time since I've emailed you and you have been on my mind so I visited your website but your email address did not work so I went to the Church site and found out why.......
I've been home from work since march 9 with a shattered knee and It has not been fun!!!!
Anyways I was glad to visit your site and get re-acquainted with you. I too have had problems with websites, I'm trying to get a new host and that has proven to be taxful on the mind! Well, guess the Father is trying to teach me something, and this old mind is being stubborn or just plain not responding right....although when the teacher gives a test, he doesn't talk!
Praise God you are fine, when the email was returned my stomach lurched a little. We need you here to keep us straight! I love you Jimbo,
Oh, by the way I'm Susie Dicus from Harlingen, TX

God Bless and take care. Joyce Moore

Yours In Christ

ME WITH YOUR BAPTIST-BELIEF PAGE. I CAN'T GET PASS....

The Church Ordinances!
The first ordinance is Baptism.

a. How are the saved to be baptized?
Emersion. ( Rom. 6: 3, 4 )
b. Who has the authority to baptize?

AFTER THIS, MY SCREEN READS: THIS PAGE IS TOO BIG TO BE SHOWN COMPLETELY. MAYBE IT HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH...WEBTV. BUT I WOULD REALLY LIKE TO FINISH READING THIS PAGE. IS THERE ANY WAY YOU CAN HELP?
THANK YOU FOR BEING A PART OF MY LIFE, AND FOR SHARING YOURS. GOD BLESS

Brother Jim !!

Just sending you a card to let you know that I am praying for you, you have been saying in your Thought for the Day, that your black outs are getting worse, I have an Uncle who gets siezers (black outs) he's had them since he was 19 years old, now he is 69, he was getting them more often as he got older, I have no idea if yours is the same thing, I'm sure that all the people that are on your mailing list are praying for you. I enjoy reading all the things you send.
God Bless you and your family and all the little grand children!!!!

With Prayers

Hilda

Dear Jim, Brother In Christ,

I want to thank you for sending out my site and for the most precious words you had to say, Life is shorter then we think and sometimes we get all wrapped up in our sorrow that we forget that there are lost souls out there in the world to reach. Thank the Lord Jesus that there people like you on the net. Jesus bless you dear brother. I have to go back to Emory Hospital May 16th. and 17th, for more test. One I understand is a rough one. So please keep me in your Prayers. Thanks again.

If the Lord Jesus see it necessary to take me home Like this little child clinging to their mother, I will cling to the Lord Jesus Hand. As this song Lead me Home

Precious Lord Take Hand.Well that is all for now May the Lord bless you always and My Prayers are with you.

In Jesus Love

Gladys Ledford

Jim...

I want you to know that your thought page today was one of the best you have put out yet!! My husband wanted me to write and tell you he really did enjoy reading it and wants me to print him out a copy of it to keep in his Bible...he said that is the best explanation of the "Roman Road to Salvation" that he has ever heard or read. You make it so PLAIN!!! Great job on the page today. On another note, I hope you are feeling better and please do start taking better care of yourself! I think maybe you tend to overdo it too much when you ARE feeling good...You are in my prayers every day.

Love in Christ,

Linda

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Dear Jim,

I had a great b-day. Thanks for the letter, and I couldn't believe you still had

me singing a happy birthday. LOL The only bad part of it was I went to a dear friends funeral today, who passed away on the 6th, which was her b-day too. Jim I hope and pray you will get well, you do splendid considering the passing out spells you have, and I along with many others appreciate the "Thought For the Day", emails. I really miss them when you can't send one out. And I miss you talking about Connie girl, she sure sounds like a jewel.

Well, gotta get to bed, so I can get up and work tomorrow.
You have a great weekend!

May the Lord bless and keep you safe.

Love,

Liz

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

JIM I REALLY THINK YOU SHOULD LISTEN TO FAYE FOR SHE MAKES

GOOD SENSE. YOU HAVE TO TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF !!! BESIDES IF

YOU WERE TO GET UNABLE TO BE HERE ON LINE MY LIFE WOULD BE

MISERABLE, FOR I TRULY ENJOY ALL THAT YOU SENT MY WAY!!!! AS

FOR YOU BEING A TOUGHY ,WEELL THOSE ARE THE ONES IF THEY WAS

TO GET HURT GO DOWN FAST, AND YOUR WIFE MAY JUST HAVE

SOMETHING TO SAY ABOUT THAT. [SMILE]  AS MY MOMMA WOULD SAY

[GOD REST HER SOUL] , TAKE IT ONE DAY AT A TIME ,YOU WILL GET

MORE ACCOMPLISHED. WITH CARE AND THOUGHTS,

MARTHA

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

THANK YOU JIM, BUT IT IS I THAT HAS BEEN BLESSED . HAVING SOMEONE

LIKE YOU AND YOU MESSAGES IS WHAT KEEPS ME GOING. WHEN I GET ON MY PUTER AND TUNE IN ON THE INTERNET YOUR E-MAIL IS WHAT I LOOK FORWARDS TO ,FOR YOUR INSPIRATIONALS  HELP ME TO THANK GOD FOR ONE MORE DAY WITH MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS. YOUR FRIEND AND

SISTER, MARTHA.....PS , HAVE A GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Dear Jim,

It seems as though you need a word of encouragement. As your subject line says "Praise His Name." I have found to my wonder and delight, that when problems seem to beset me from all sides, when I suffer from "writer's block" and everything in my life seems to be going wrong, if I stop and take the time to give thanks for those problems, they lose their hold on me and I am able to return my focus on the Lord who does a magnificent job of taking care of me. (Even though I don't seem to deserve it)

I am not real great in quoting what chapter and verse and I am no expert when it comes to quoting scripture verbatim, but in one or more of Paul's letters, he tells us to give thanks for all things. I do. I give thanks for the good things, and yes, for the bad things too. If there is one thing I have learned from doing this, is that I feel good thanking Jesus for my blessings, but I feel great in thanking Him for the inconveniences and setbacks because I live in the assurance that He has something for me in them that will make me stronger in my faith! So don't worry about the Geocities, and Yahoo business...

give Outlook to God and let Him do the worrying for you! I have you in my prayers my friend. Your telling us about the problems you are having came at a good time to remind me to give thanks for my difficulties as well! Thank you! it was just in time!! As you said "HE IS THERE"

Love,

Phyllis Card

MANY TIMES I HAVE CRIED WHEN READING YOUR SERMON ON THE

Jim,

I enjoyed today's "thought" and the devotional message... I just wanted to tell you this: We just finished Bible School this week at our church, and our theme was "Walking With Jesus". And our devotional scripture? It was Ephesians 5:2 !!!! Everyone read it in unison each night, and by last night all the children were able to recite it by heart. I don't tell you often enough how I do enjoy your messages each day and look forward to them.. and yes, I still vote every day for you! And you are always in my prayers..

Your sister in Christ,

Linda

Hi jim, hope this finds you all doing ok, your email yesterday, sorta bother me, and i started praying for you and your family right then. Just remember that God loves you and so do i. Its going to be another hot day. yesterday the heat index at one time was 106. We live right across union co and crittenden line going to marion right on the highway, and of course this was the weekend for the little sturgis bike rally, all we have heard is the rumbling of the bikers, and plenty of them, say a prayer for there safe home.
i think close to 20,000 or maybe a little over was there. they started coming in the first of the week. they all are leaving this morning. so the highway is busy now. we went to evonnes and ronnies last night, she had a cook out for her grandson. he turn 7. ronnie was determine to come outside, he did just long enough for little
jacob to unwrap is presents, and had to go back in. you could tell it took all he had to come outside. he cant hardly hold his head up. hes getting worse, i know, he has started biting his lip and getting it to bleed, he said he doesnt know hes doing it. We wonder sometimes how much our bodies can take, dont we/???? God only knows whats ahead for each of us!! without him we are nothing!! I do hope you are ok!!! we will keep you in our prayers and may God Bless Each and Everyone Of Your family today and

May God touch you spiritually and physically today. with christian love and prayers!! i forgot to tell you that last fall evonne, ronnie and dennis and i was going to drive up to see you all and surprise you, we was waiting for ronnie to start feeling some better to take the trip. but seem like he just gets worse!! anyway, i do hope you will have a good day. bye for now, patsy

========================================================

Blessings brother Jim !!

I want to commend you on your "Thought for the day" on Hell hath fury. I totally agree there is a lack of it being preached in churches today. There probably are people who don't really know what Hell is, that it's real and a place of torment for all eternity, for ever and ever. Romans 6:23- For the wages of sin is death. To die without Christ is separation from God for all eternity, it is also in hell tormented for all eternity. I agree it should be preached in churches today.
God bless you brother Jim!!!!!!!!!!       Hilda

Dear Jim,

I just read your thought for today with the dr. update. It was a very humbling email. You have meant a lot to me and my family. I share with my husband a lot of the things I receive from you. Even though he doesn't read all the things you send what he does read is a blessing and he says that he sees how you have blessed my life and how God is working through you to reach so many. He has been called to the ministry and you have been an inspiration to us both. It makes us see how God uses a person to bless others. Mr. Keeling I can personally say that my relationship with God has grown just from the thoughts you send out plus it touches my heart so deeply that you care so much for the people on your list. I share a few of the things with my 11 yr. old daughter and 8 yr. old son.

I am so glad that God has placed you in my life and the lives of so many others (even if it is just through email). I know for certain that my mom and my sister receive your mailings too. If it is your time then you can leave knowing you have accomplished much for the ministry and reaching others for Jesus. We will continue to keep you and your family in our prayers. God has blessed so many with a wonderful man like you. Again thank you for so much. God bless

Sincerely

The Rays

Jessica, Michael, Kristin, Chad, Jonny, & Bria

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 Jim, I read your email last night and I won't lie to you, I sat here and just cried.

But then I was thinking, like you said Jim that it's all in God's Hands and everything is up to him. Not up to any doctors or anyone else. We are going to be praying for you here and already have done so and will keep on praying for you. You've become so dear to us and such a special brother-in-Christ and friend and our hearts are heavy and hurting over this news from your doctor but we know like you do, that it's in God's Hands. You hang in there and keep your chin up and we're going to be here praying for you every single day. I'm going to have my big brother's church in Texas praying also. (Faith Baptist Church) I'm passing the word along.

Everything's going to be okay and you stay as tough as you always are. So that's why you've been having those black out spells, because of your heart? I tell you what, God is hearing our prayers and there's going to be a lot of people praying for you. That's what we can do for you here, on this end. I wish I was there to give you a big ole southern hug! You hang in there and lose what weight you can lose, if that's what you have to do. We love you brother in Christ as do so many people. You've always been a blessing to us and I don't know of a better witness than you, for the Lord, or sweeter Christian friend to have.

So hang in there! You're tough! We know this.
We love you, Tammy and Rick Young

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Well Glory! I thought as much. You are in my prayers, Jim, and I pray that God will help you loose some of that weight. I really do not believe He is through with you down here, you are reaching many many lost souls including those who need to be lifted up daily. Your humor, wit and encouragement are God given gifts. You will never know until you get to heaven what your website and your email newsletters mean to people. There have been times I was really down and I would get your emails and be lifted up. To God be the glory and for Him using a great man of God to do so......

Hang in there, Susie

Jim,

I will keep you in my prayers many times a day now.. That Jesus leave you a while longer, maybe for us.. :) You are needed with your wonderful daily messages and 'getting the word out'... And I need you as a great friend that you are. Now is the time to lose the weight, and as soon as you can.. I am sure Connie can find recipes that will help you and even she could go on it with you.. It will be strictly nutrition. See if they will give you all literature on foods to eat. My doctor sent me to a nutritionist, and she outlined what I should and should not eat.. (on state aid, I can get doctors easily, so if you are on state, get it!!) If not, it is worth the $'s what ever it cost. She was very good and nutrition is the key.. No gravies and 'goodies', but good wholesome foods, and filling. And a bit of exercise is good, but not to overdo it!!!! Just increase as weight drops. Jim, IF THERE IS ANYWAY I can help, let me know..

I love you as my Christian brother, and online pastor also, so willing to do anything I can do ... You must drop the weight and get the necessary work done for life. God gave us men in the field of medicine, and with His steady hand and insight, they will do their jobs, but we have to do ours too.. I am ready to meet with the Savior when He comes.. but I will not hurry it, and will try to better treat His 'temple' in my body.. and you must too, right now..

Love you, brother!!!

Jim,

I am praying for you but i know you know that already!! I don't write a lot cause I know you have so much mail. but just wanted you to know that I am thinking of you and praying all goes well.....I know it will be hard to lose the weight,,, but with Gods help you can do it...I had hoped we would get to visit with you, patsy and Dennis walker and us were planning on it,,, but Jim Ronnie is just not able at all....he is very low. I thank you for always remembering him in your prayers....and for all the nice emails you've sent since i don't get to attend church anymore , your thoughts for the day and all your forwards have really blessed me.. and i thank the good LORD for you!!! take care and

God Bless You and Yours is my prayer! Evonne Phillips Hunt

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

In Psalms it says you can fall but not a bone will be broken, His angels watched over you again, that you would not be cut. Prayers are with you Jim....you are needed here on earth to spread His word. He will and is protecting you and I pray for your total healing in this time. Thank you for all your words of encouragement and the knowledge of His wonderful Word that you give each day. You don't have to answer this note, it is just one of thinking of you...just keep putting His word out and He will carry you.

angel hugs to you and

God Bless,
Connie

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hi everyone, I'm asking that you read Pastor Jim's letter and add him to your prayer lists.  I know his email ministry has touched alot of lives, and the following message is certainly one for all  to consider RIGHT NOW. ((((Jim)))), my thoughts and prayers are STILL with you my friend.

God bless,

Dixie

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hi Jim:

my prayers are with you, for continued spiritual strength and healing of your body. you have been there for us, and I know the lord is rewarding you for your sincere, unselfish devotion to us.

yours in Christ,

Elizabeth slaughter

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My name is Peggie Grimes and live in Hamilton, Al. Evonne is my cousin, her Mom and mine were step-sisters. She always forwards your thought for the day and I enjoy them so much. I have added you and yours to my Prayer list along with Ronnie and Evonne.

Evonne is a VERY good person and I'm not saying that because she is related,,, she is one of a kind. Sure wish things were better for her and Ronnie but I guess we aren't suppose to question things like that.

I hope you are much better today,,,,God is the great Physician.... Just wanted to say Hi and let you no I have thought of you often.

Take care

Peg

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Dear Jim,

You don't have to answer this letter personally because I know you do have such a great volume of mail coming in, but I just wanted to tell you that I am still praying for you daily, praying that God will heal your body if it is His will, and that He will help you to have the determination to lose some weight. You have become a very dear friend to me, and to so many on here, and I would hate for anything to happen to you!!!!

God Bless You!!!!!

Linda

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hi Bro. Jim

I am so sorry about the doctor report. You know, why didn't you say more in the beginning? Why? You are and was in so much pain....But as you said it is not up to the doctors or me it is up to God how much time you have. God our healer of all illnesses can and will heal you. There is something he want to show you out of all of this. Keep the faith. There is nothing in possible for our Saviour. If you and i want to be powerful in prayers, we must be willing for God's will not only in the things for which we are praying...that's only half of it. The other half is being willing for God's will in our own personal lives.

You know Jim "God is making you finer of gold." You are very special to him, and to us. In Rom 8:28, and Job assurance, When he has tried you, "You shall come forth as gold" Job 23:10.....You are in my prayers 24 Hours a day.

Jesus love you, and so do I.

JIM,
I sent a message earlier, it was returned because your mailbox was full
so this time, i will just say, Tammy's poem expressed my feelings too,
I am very thankful to have been in your flock for about the last year and
a half, GOD BLESS! 'WITH LOVE IN CHRIST' Billie June

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

HI JIMMY,
WHAT A WONDERFUL POEM THAT IS,AND I'M SURE IT EXPRESSES ALL OF OUR
FEELINGS ABOUT YOU. EVERYTHING IN IT IS SO VERY TRUE. THE LORD HAS TRULY BLESSED US ALL BY YOUR DAILY WORDS AND LOVE THAT YOU HAVE SHOWN TO ALL OF US. ANY WAY YOU TAKE CARE AND ALSO GET SOME REST IF YOU CAN. WISH TOM AND I COULD GET DOWN THERE TO SEE YOU ALL, BUT I AM GOING THROUGH  A FEW TESTS WITH THE DR. MYSELF RIGHT NOW, AND TOM'S GARDEN IS STARTING TO PRODUCE LOTS OF GOODIES. LOL SO HE'S PRETTY BUSY
WITH THAT. WE  BOTH SEND  OUR LOVE AND OUR PRAYERS ,   LOIS AND TOM

Dear Jim,
I am sorry that you have been ill, I am praying for you. May God Bless you with showers of blessings. Especially the blessing of healing. You do such a wonderful job sending your articles to us. I really love getting them from you. They are a blessing to me. Thank you very, very much

Jim my prayers are with you>>>

I too am having trouble with my website, I restored last Monday and now I cannot update trellix....I can't seem to get anything done right so I sympathize with you. I pray that God will comfort you and hold you ever so tightly in His loving arms. May He fill you with His love, peace and joy. May He overshadow you at this very moment and wisper how much He loves and respects you for His kingdom work. May He give you such a God experience you will never be the same again.

Keep Him in focus and not on your computer and I will take my own advice.
You are well loved by all and we understand when you cannot fullfill the Thought for The Day.....

Loads of love and hugs....Susie Dicus, Harlingen, Texas........

_________________________________________________

I guess I can tell you a little bit about myself. My father left my twin sister and I when we where still in a crib, He came back from the war shell shock, and couldn't handle caring for a family. My mom then remarried but my step dad was not really a real dad to us. So I can say I never really had a dad to love and care for me. I married young has two sons and divorced after eight years of marriage, my husband was not home much, always out with friends.

Then I had a relationship and had my youngest son, that lasted about ten years, he also was never home or cared for me as a wife but was involved with his son.So when I read your Thoughts for Today I get tears in my eyes, because I see you are the kind of man I would of wanted as a father and or husband, your wife and family are so
blessed beyond belief, What I would do to have someone like you, I know I have my
Father in heaven, but would of liked someone here on earth to love and care for me.

I pray for you, that you live a very long and rich life with us, blessings , aby

Good Mornin' Jimmy,

I so enjoyed your 'Thought for Today'. I enjoy everything you send, but this one struck a particular chord with me. There have been so many times recently that I have felt that 'God is through with me. That he has given up on me because I can't seem to live up to what I felt he expected of me. Of course I know that is my 'Mental Illness' thinking rather than logic. God isn't through with me yet. Guess I was feeling 'I WAS THROUGH WITH ME'. Thank you once again for getting me back on the right track.

With Love & Hope,

Just as I am,

Glenda (CCsLilSis)

Hi Jim,

THANK GOD for you Brother Jim!!! Yes, you may use my letter. I Pray it will Help others! You are so right in the words you speak. I AGREE with what you said COMPLETELY! But sadly, people like that DON'T want to BELIEVE the TRUTH. . But I will continue to pray for them. Again, Thank you. I am so glad GOD once again led me to write to you about this matter. It is a Blessing to be able to call upon the Elders ( wiser than me ) for help. GOD Bless you Brother Jim! And I praise GOD that GOD is using you for HIS GLORY!!!!!!!!

Love in JESUS CHRIST,

Janice

Hi Jim!!
Happy Birthday!! I just wanted to thank you for all the wonderful messages you send to all us "flock". They really lift me up some days when I need it. The Lord truly blessed me the day I read your first messages of hope. We won't actually meet until we meet the Lord in the sky, but I just wanted to say what a comfort it is to know that you are there with your words of wisdom. Thank you again!!
God Bless You!!

Hi Jim,

I Just had to tell you how BEAUTIFUL I thought your Sunday Message was. I Loved the story about the wooden people and yes, indeed it reflects on each of us. I to, wear the gray dots, but only on the outside. Inside I wear the stars that JESUS put in me. Each one has meaing (Love, Hope, Faith, etc) and purpose and each one is more powerful than the dots given to me by humans and what I did to myself.

Yes, PRAISE GOD, the TWINKLE in our eyes is REALLY there and the abusive emotional and physical scars (dots) I received as a child, well those dots are beginning to fall away because JESUS is HEALING all that pain!!!!

May GOD Bless you and Smile, JESUS has you WRAPPED in LOVE!!!!!!

Dear Jim, Just to let you know that I think of you each day and I am still praying for you. I just wanted you to know that I care, I care very, very much. Thank you for all of the strength and effort you put forth to write to us, to inform us, and to encourage us, lifting us up and giving us hope in our Lord and Saviour, and King, Jesus. You do a wonderful job, in all that you do. I Love you, In Christian Love. Your friend and sister in Christ. Blanche Price ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart.

Jim Keeling, you have one of the most beautiful hearts of anyone I have ever had the privilege of becoming acquainted with!!! I look forward to meeting you face to face someday in heaven... ~~Linda
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Broher Jim I loved all your messages you sent today read them some twice just to hear the beautiful music I pray you regain your strength and keep feeding us each day uglygrandma.

God Bless and Keep You
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hi Jim, This message from you is great!! I have forwarded it to others so that they will be more motivated to get busy and seek the lost. You are so right. There is little time left and if we "goof off" in the last brief time of the earth we'll be so sorry and ashamed when we meet God face to face. I hope you are physically feeling better today. Many people would have turned to medicine in your situation last night. You turned to our Great Physician. God bless and keep you, Lynne
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~`

JIM, REMEMBER THE PICTURE YOU SENT OUT OF YOURSELF AND PANDA DEAR SLEEPING????? WELL I COPIED IT OUT INTO AN 8 BY 10. I DIDN'T SEE YOU AS YOU DESCRIBED YOURSELF IN THE BEGINNING OF YOUR WORDS----I SAW A WARM, COMPASSIONATE MAN, AN ANGEL OF GOD. AND YES JIM YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL . IT'S NOT WHAT'S ON THE OUTSIDE THAT MATTERS ,IT'S WHAT'S ON THE INSIDE THAT COUNTS AND YOU HAVE IT ALL!!!! IF EVERYONE THOUGHT THIS WAY ----WHAT A WONDER WORLD THIS WOULD BE!!!!!!!!!!! YOUR FRIEND IN CHRIST, MARTHA
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Jim, you ARE a beautiful person, and I know this by your faith alone. I thank you for your faith, and your commitment to God and to your e-mail friends. In Christ, Maureen
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Thanks Jimbo, I needed that>>>>.I too have been down that road, in fact I even tried sucide because I did not feel worthy or loved (I was loved) But my heavenly Father did not let me go>>>>Today I look back on that incident and praise His holy name....He say's He will never leave us nor forsake us and that we are beautiful in His site, just like you said. YOu are so good with words and they come stright from your heart and I feel the love of God in you.

Your battle scares are for His love and work, He's not through with you yet. You are beautiful to me too as well as God......In His love and grace Susie

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Good morning Jim, Your e-mails are such a blessing to read, and some are funny, like this one, and these put a smile on my face and makes me laugh. Some are spiritual to read, which gets me to think. I just wanted to tell you God bless you and have a wonderful weekend! Tammy

Hi Jim,

Hope you are feeling better today. Here is a new page on my Website that when you feel like it, I'd like for you to go see. It's just for you and I hope you like it. "http://www.tammyboatmanyoung.com/A_SOLDIER_STANDING_TALL.html"

Get some rest and we'll talk to you later. Don't you worry about answering our emails either, until you feel up to it, ok? Alright now, I'm going to stop nagging, haha! your friend in Christ, Tammy

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~`

Really don't want to bother you and have been wondering how you are feeling but I just wanted to let you know that this message was a message from The Lord for me. I was in a nervous and bawling fit over something that had just happened and this message came flying through. I really believe God works in mysterious ways and this was one of those times he worked. Thank you and I would like for you to pray for me on a couple of decisions that I have to make soon. Thank you and your site is such a blessing to me several times a day. Yours In Christ , Phyllis
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Dear Jim, I don't know why, but you have been very much on my mind lately and I have been praying for you. As I read the emails I have received from you today I began to think, "He gets lots of emails and forwards but does anyone ever say that they appreciate his ministry?" So here I sit, writing this to you to do just that, tell you thank you for your messages! I cannot tell you just how many times that they have lifted me when I felt down or have spoken to me about a need that I had been praying over. One of the things I have always enjoyed in your messages, is how you invite your readers into your home. I don't think you realize how many times I have been sitting on the porch with you in the mornings as you watched the sun come up over God's glorious green earth and listened with a smile as the sounds of your family emanate from the next room. I think I have even kept you company a few times when you have worked on different projects in your garage. Bet you didn't know that this former NJ person (I live in Wyoming now) had such a lively imagination! Then without missing a beat you use the very happenings around you to lead into your message. I am taking a discipleship course at the church we attend. It's more than a bible study, it's got lots of oomph to it. Plenty of meat and taters for a hungry Christian! So far we have discussed the bible as God's word (An overview of the different kinds of literature in it) And tomorrow we will be studying Creation and God's awesome power and majesty! I am so excited to be a part of it. It's funny, when I first heard that the course was available I KNEW that I had to take the course. The voice in my heart was telling me loud and clear. I just love seeing how God is moving hearts and minds and bringing folks closer to him. A few people in our class, have no knowledge of the bible at all and want to know more. It is going to be such an awesome sight to watch their faith grow! Well, Jim, my daughter has come in from school and is beginning to give me a litany of the day's doings so I must go and listen to the adventures of a 13 (almost 14) year old's day. She is such a chatterbox that I will be hard put to keep up with what she is saying. *Grin* Say a prayer for her. she is singing in the choir next sunday for the first time. Love Your Sister in Christ Phyllis Card Cheyenne, Wy.

You're very welcome, Jim. I figured you'd get plenty of responses, and I started not to send that,but then I figured if everyone else was thinking the same thing,,you never would get the words!....so I had to send it. I'm glad to help out. That old song is beautiful,,such a beautiful message in it.

YOU, are a blessing to me,,and to so many others,,and also an inspiration to us all. I realize all your health problems are quite serious, and I know there has to be many, many times, you simply do not feel like sitting at your computer,,,yet you take the time to send out email to try and brighten everyone else's day, and make a difference in our lives! I thank you for your countless hours of commitment, and want you to know your work does NOT go un-noticed. You, are the blessing sent to us, Jim,,God uses you to touch our lives daily, and for that, I am thankful. God bless you, Debbie Roberts

PRAISE GOD PASTOR JIM, THANK YOU FOR SUCH A INSIGHTFUL EMAIL. I WAS NOT ABLE TO MAKE IT TO CHURCH THIS AM. MY DAUGHTER IS SICK WITH A COLD AND MY CAR WAS ACTING UP YESTERDAY EVENING. BUT YOUR EMAIL BROUGHT SUCH A BLESSING TO ME. I DO SO LOOK FORWARD TO YOUR EMAILS. I ALSO PRAY THAT THE LORD ABOVE WILL SEE THAT YOUR BUSH HOG WORKS PROPERLY WHEN YOU GO TO USE IT. THE PEACE OF THE LORD BE WITH YOU JIM. YOUR SISTER IN CHRIST LAURA
============================================================

Jim, I read your message's daily, and I don't reply often because I know how busy you are, and how much mail you have to go through, even though most of your messages touch me. Today though, I feel I need to reply. I have been somewhat back-sliden for close to two months. There are many reasons (but no excuses) one of which is that my husband is not saved, and he makes it very difficult for me concerning church........ (please pray for him, his name is John). Anyway, my reason for the need to reply to todays message is, today I decided I needed to go to church, and I did, and I went to the alter after, and re-dedicated my life to the Lord. I was prayed for by the Pastor, and another Pastors wife, and I just feel renewed!!! Anyway, the Pastors Sermon today included 2Tim, and so did your "thought". The connection was really amazing for me (although it shouldn't have been, since there really aren't "coincidences", but Gods hand at work). I just wanted to thank you, and remind you that you are touching peoples lives Jim!!! I thank God for you Jim. Take care of yourself! Love, Maureen
===============================================================
Thank you Jim. I read this, with a heart full of love for Jesus, and cold chills all over my body. Thanks again, for this wonderful message, you continue to send. I hope this finds you feeling better, than the last time, that i wrote. Thanks again, you wonderful, messenger for God, and may he richly bless your life. Yours in Christ, Beverly Burden
==============================================================
Sir; I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoy you e-mails. I am a new subscriber to your ministery. I have had my computer for only a month. It means a lot to me to get to hear from you. I had been reading your messages on my friend Milly's computer. Then She bought me one for my birthday. It has been a blessing to me. I am a widow. My husband was a minster. He went to be with the Lord sixteen years ago. He was only fifty nine. But the Lord wanted him to come home. That's ok. I was blessed to be his wife for forty two years. I thank my Lord for those years. Thanks again for your messages. I pray for you everyday. I have open up a prayer folder in my computer, that way I ca go to it and call each one by name. I know what fun it is to run a bush hog. I use to run one at my home, in the country when I lived in Ohio.............. God Bless You and Connie girl. YOURS IN CHIST.

Dear Jim, Hi. My name is Jim and I am a counselor with a Note from Heaven. I have only gotten your emails a few times. I really enjoy them. I am glad to hear that you are losing weight and have high spirits because of the Lord being with you. I would like to pray for you. Dear Heavenly Father, I come to You in prayer tonight for Jim. You know who he is Father. Its not me. I lift Jim up to You for complete healing. He is very dedicated to knowing You and praising You Father. To me he loves You more than anything else in life. He loves all Your creations. He loves the change in the trees this time of year. It is wonderful. I ask that You keep on protecting Jim in the way that You have been doing. I wish I had the attitude that he has at times. He keeps on praising You no matter how he feels. Praise the Lord!!!!! I ask that You bless him and Connie and that You heal him in Your Word. We command you, satan and all demonic forces, to BE GONE in the name of Jesus Christ. You can not touch Jim because he belongs to God. If you try to bother him, he may just run over you with the bush hog. Alright, that would be good. I just praise the Lord for all that He is doing in You and through you. Your words are different but they hit home and bring encouragement at the same time. May God bless you and keep you. I ask this in our Loving name of Jesus Christ, Amen!!!!! Love in Christ, jim
============================================================
Hi Jim I really enjoyed your thought for today. I've often heard the phrase that if Jesus were to come back today, we would not recognize Him. After reading your e-mail I know exactly what that means. We are so used to seeing a certain view of Jesus, a glamourized Hollywood version of Him, never realizing that He looks nothing like that. Your thought for today was very thought provoking and informative. Thank you for sharing it with us. I for one am truly blessed. I look forward to your e-mails. Thanks again and have a blessed day.

Sincerely, Stephanie Hicks "
===========================================================
The good news isn't Jesus lived and died. The good news is that Jesus died and lives. Well as you so well many times say Well Glory.Thank you fro the beautiful sermon on today thoughts., it just finished off my busy day. God Bless you and keep you well, Jackie Dutra, your Pentecostal friend.
=========================================================
Amen brother Jim Amen. I just get chills when I read your words. I love feeling the power of the Lord you feel. Praise be to God. you are truly and angel Jim. have a blessed day. love you sister in Christ Laura
===============================================================
Thank you Lord for my friend and brother in Christ Jim. Lord please allow him to continue in the good work he does for you. Lord we glorify your Holy Name. Amen
=============================================================

HI Jim :o).............. well I read each and every letter you send.............. and I just had to reply to this one....... Thank you for sending such a beautiful poem!!! My Husband was a Marine for almost 9 years, we crossed services into the Airforce almost 3 years ago.... where he is still proudly serving his country. He still looks like a Marine, I honestly think you can take the Man out of the Marines but NEVER the Marine out of the Man!! I just had to share that He is fighting for Freedom while I sit and type this letter to you. Yes he is deployed right now to an undisclosed location. So I wait and pray for him. We have 2 small children, a 5 year old Son (with ADHD/ODD) who adores him and a 2 year old Daughter who has him wrapped around her little finger LOL. The thing that weighs heavy on my heart is that Fred was hurt badly by fellow christians when he was newly saved and no longer comes to church...... I pray for him daily. Jim I just wanted to ask you if you could keep Fred in your prayers, and if you post this to the prayer list could you keep our last names undisclosed (for security reasons) Thank you Jim, your word for the day often lifts my spirits, and the hymns you send often bring a smile or tear to my eye. Thank you for lifting a young wifes/moms heart and spirit, that she knows that even though her husband isn't here to support her, that my God, my Father.....has sent his son to comfort and support me when times are hard!! God bless Jim, may our Father keep you lifted up, just like you lift others!! Donna
============================================================
Hello Bro. Jim, I received a forwarded message one day recently and it was something of yours (I don't even remember who sent it)....but I liked it and so I did the "add me" thing and have been receiving your emails ever since......I just wanted to send you a little note to say Thank you. You have truly been a blessing to me....I haven't had time to go and look at your sites you have listed but the things you send out always have a message for me. Thank you for your obedience to the Lord.....you might never know the difference you make in a person's life. Thank you again and God bless you!!!!!!!! your sister in Christ, joaniek
=============================================================
Jim, The dedication is beautiful and expresses what so many of us feel, but can't express so eloquently. I tried to click on the link to your musical p[age and it said couldn't be displayed. How can I get to your music page. How can I obtain a CD of your songs? Dorothy in Orlando.
===========================================================
Dear brother Jim, I just read your Thought for the Day. I'm always thankful when I get your mail, then I know you're still with us. You are a wonderful friend, you live on borrowed time and are in pain, and you always think of others instead of yourself, I've told people when I've forwarded your lovely emails. You're so right about the answer you gave to that 71 year old lady. It is sure a wonderful thing that Tammy did for you, I emailed her and told her that she did a wonderful thing for you, making that special page for you. I know Tammy too, we have emailed each other a few times, she does have a wonderful site, I've looked at it. It is through you that I found her site, I must thank you for that. Abba father......I lift up brother Jim to you.....touch him right now with your healing hands......Lord I pray you will remove all pain.....Lord you are our healer......by your stripes we are healed.....Lord nothing is impossible with you.....you are Mighty in power Lord......praise your holy name Lord.....we give you all the praise and glory.....in the name of Jesus......Hallelujah.....AMEN and AMEN....so be it.... Blessings, Hilda :-) \o/

I just want to thank you for sharing 'Being a Mother' with your Lil Flock. With your special touches, you made it much more special. As I was beginning to work on my Christmas Site today. I received a beautiful prayer from a friend of mine. I had to stop what I was doing and make a web page. It was as if I wasn't even doing it on my own, more like God laid his hands on me, and my heart, and there it was. I would like to share it with you. I Asked God "http://www.geocities.com/lilsites4u/AskGod.html" Just as I am, Glenda


===============================================================
Hi Jim, I have been to tammy's site - wonderful. I also visited your page of Gospel songs and was so blessed listening to them - a truly wonderful voice you have. I took your picture and framed it, adding a little :) (Attached) I was disappointed that on your second page there were 5 broken links to you singing :(( 'Hallelujah Square' 'The sun's Coming Up' 'I've never been this Homesick Before' 'When The Roll Call is Called Up Yonder' 'It Is No Secret' I hope you don't mind me pointing out these dead links, but so wanted to listen to all you have done. Do you have a banner that I could link to your Gospel Album page from my homepage - it would be a honour to link it up. May God Bless You Glyn "http://www.geocities.com/glyn35/christian.html" (My Homepage)
==============================================================
Jim, may I ask where you live. You said the Dr. wanted you to go to Nashville. Are you from Tenn. I use to live in Tenn. but now live in Ga. Tenn. is a beautiful place. Please don't ever give up writing to us. We all enjoy hearing from you.
==============================================================
Dear Jim, Hi. My name is Jim and I am a counselor with a Note from Heaven. I would like to say a prayer for Connie. Heavenly Father, I come to You in prayer this morning for Connie. Father I ask for forgiveness of not getting to know my brothers and sisters in ministry better. Father, I lift up Connie to You. She has aneurysms and she has not been feeling good lately. I ask that You reach down and ease any aches and pains that she is having. I ask for You to comfort her and give her rest that she so dearly needs. Let this be a rest that she can enjoy and be revived in Your Spirit. Fill her till she is bubbling over with Your Spirit. Father, we ask for healing of her body. Heal whatever her ailments are. You are the great healer. I ask that You reach down and lay Your healing hands on her head and body and heal her in the name of Jesus. We thank You for the healing that You are doing and are going to do in the future. Praise You Father. Father, I lift up Jim and his ministry to You. I ask that Your blessing be poured out on him like he has never seen before. I pray that Your Spirit will never leave him. He has a good outlook on life. I wish I had his attitude toward life. Life is great and it is awesome to be doing what You have called each and every one of us to do. I thank You for his thoughts for the day. They are inspiring and lifting. Thank You Father for the work that You have called Jim to do. I ask for blessing on him and his family and his ministry to pour over them according to Your riches in heaven. I ask for healing of any ailments or illness that Jim has. I pray for complete healing. I plead the BLOOD of JESUS over him, his family and his ministry. I ask this in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen!!!!!!! Love in Christ, Jim smith

Jim, I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy your thoughts. My family and I have just recently moved to Long Beach CA, from Cartersville GA (Sept) and feel a bit home sick quite often. Your words have lifted me up on many days and I just wanted to thank you! I think God sent you to be an angel to me at this transition time in my life ,and feel blessed to have you as a friend in Christ. Shari Barto 12/29/02
============================================================
