DEATH -RESURRECTION-QUEST

The Westphall family finished this shrine - The First in the United States of America - in Honor of his son David - USMC - KIA - VIETNAM. Dr. Westphall spent David's insurance money and everything else he had to begin "The Vietnam Veteran's National Memorial", (type it into your Web search - you will find it.)

Three weeks before these photos were taken Dr. Westphall and I spent the afternoon discussing the "security" of this monument. I volunteered. Three weeks later....

Sgt. Duffy,
It has been my honor and privilege to share my thoughts and concerns with you in this forum.
You Sir, also have the same key and you know it. Somehow, somewhere, someday, we will be together and unlock that door together.
I will add something else in the PTSD thread,
but know this....you have had an impact on many lives here and at the FEW.
In the short time and space we have shared together, I for one will remember.
I pray for you daily.
Dana

Blue Dana & AJ

fOR A MOMENT i LOST MY COMPOSITION. i THOUGHT OF YOUR P9SITIIVE THININING. gOT LOST IN IT..... AND DREEANEDD OF THOINGS TO COME... i DREAM OF PLACES WHRE NO MAN CAN ENTER....i DREAM OF A PLACE ON EATH WHERE WARRIORS CAN BE ACCEPTEDD AND SAFE FROJ THJE SCRUTINITY OF THE LES THENA IN FORMEDD PUBLIC. tHERE ae such places. I've been to them. Tjeu are lonely - I used theat term because it fits the melodrama of what is yet to come.

There is a difference between loneleness---- and aloneless ness---The former you miss those close to you - humans - dogs - birds - fishs, etc. The latter you miss nothing! accept the goal that you selfishly employ, and quietly engrose as your singular goal - what ever it might me. Here we go with the "Quest" of Death resurredtion and quest. What iws it? Oh, Dana, it is so simple. just something of a value that forgoes anything of present value in your life. Simple! I want more. Complication? have I got the guts to get it? Simple solution - one of two - yes or no - and what price are you willing to pay/ AND EACH OF YOU KNOW THAT PRICE - YOU'VE ALREADY BEEN ASKED ...... AND YOU KNOW IT.... i promise...........

Hey Vic,

Vic,
Good to see you in here.

I don't think Sgt. Duffy is giving up any time soon. He was just out looking at a horse and had a little riding accident but is ok except for being very sore.

He has a lot to say, but is unable to post as much as he would like.

He has stated the obvious , but not just for himself, but for all of us.

One thing he has said in another post is we have no control over when we are born or die, but what we do in between is what counts.

So welcome to PM

Hi Dana

You are right there it is not how long you live as much as how you are living, like just being happy. I can say if today was my last day on earth, I lived a good life.

Sgt. Duffy,
Glad to see you back.
Chauncey was having the same trouble logging on this morning.
There was no indication there was any problem, so I dont know what it could be. Get some rest and maybe we will see you late tonight.
Dana

Bored Life and Death...our times are in His Hands!

However, some years ago - when life for me wasn't seen to be worth the struggle - I came to a point where I realised that in spite of my disabilities (PTSD, GOR, HA, severe OA knees and back, skin Ca and so on...) I began to realise that I was still helping veterans, their wives and families. So, boldly I asked the Lord, just as Paul did (he wanted to be with His Lord, but he knew that if he remained he could strengthen the church and its leaders!) to make it possible for me to be left here on earth until He came for the Church or I simpy faded away! My reason was to do as much damage as possible to the kingdom of darkness by snatching people out of that kingdom, in the Kingdom of God and to also teach and strengthen the Church. God has used us (that's my wife Barbara and I) to separate the Holy from the profane. We've been used by Him to help many to leave dangerous religious groups and prevent untold numbers from getting involved. By His Grace we will continue to do so - in spite of the handicaps which in His Sovereign will either be healed or touched sufficiently to enable us to continue in the path He wants us to walk. Be encouraged and do deals with God (as long as they are based in His Word!).
Love you all heaps guys.
Hang tought in Him.

Cross Glow Sm Clr Follow-up

This bounced into my email box just after I made the foregoing post:

Go The Distance

I have often dreamed
Of a far off place
Where a hero's welcome
Would be waiting for me

Where the crowds will cheer
When they see my face
And a voice keeps saying
This is where I'm meant to be

I'll be there someday
I can go the distance
I will find my way
If I can be strong

I know every mile
Will be worth my while
When I go the distance
I'll be right where i belong

Down an unknown road
To embrace my fate
Though that road may wander
It will lead me to you

And a thousand years
Would be worth the wait
It might take a lifetime
But somehow I'll see it through

And I won't look back
I can go the distance
And I'll stay on track
No I won't accept defeat

It's an uphill slope
But I won't lose hope
Till I go the distance
And my journey is
Complete

But to look beyond the glory
is the hardest part
For a hero's strength is
measured by his heart

Like a shooting star
I will go the distance
I will search the world
I will face its harms

I don't care how far
I can go the distance
Till I find my hero's welcome
Waiting in your arms

I will search the world
I will face it's harm
Till I find my hero's welcome
waiting in your arms

Many years ago someone said "Some people are so afraid to die that they never begin to live." In reading these threads I can see that Sgt. Duffy doesn't fear death, nor does any of those who have written.
I've outlived many friends and family members. I've shared the last days with many,being at peace with those who knew Jesus as their savior. and feeling the pain when others left, rejecting the invitation Christ gave them.
This pain gives me the drive to go on, doing all I can to lead all those I come into contact with to make their reservation to the eternal home with Christ.
This quote is from Norman McLeod, a Scottish clergyman (1812-1872) "We picture death as coming to destroy; let us rather picture Christ as coming to save. We think of death as ending; let us rather think of life as beginning and that more abundantly. We think of losing; leet us think of gaining. We think of parting, let us think of meeting. We think of going away; leet us think of arriving. And the voice of death whispers "You must go from earth." Let us hear the voice of Christ saying, "You are but coming to me!"
Keep On Keeping On,
Ben

My Swabby, friend,

Where else would we be going, but to our Father? That is without a reservation or intent on the part of someone - or something - else? You need not question that.
