What stuff can I take with me?

What have you left behind? Did you ever leave somewhere and lost all your stuff? I have several times. All the rest of that stuff is in Lebanon. I brought what I could sixty pounds of clothes and guess what? I have more stuff now. I saw all my brother’s stuff laid out for sale. His whole life of stuff left behind. Not too much of that stuff sold and the rest went to charity. His house sold in a couple of days. When I left the last time I felt sad for he would no longer be there and the stuff was all there and I could no longer look at it. I did choose some of it to go with my stuff in my new apartment. It’s a comfort thing for me knowing it was his. Some of it even was my grandparents, both sides and my dads. I have a collection of baseball hats, dad’s and my brother’s. I have his army jacket and his biking clothes. Maybe I will wear them. He was an avid biker. He really loved it. I have his special treasure here for now. It’s his cat named Myteka. He just jumped up by me. That is truly the most special. I know how much he loved his cat and I love him also. We bonded when my brother was dying. My brother was happy about that. My brother and I in our last months together were strong in our faith in Christ together. I now can go forward and be busy about the Lord’s business. Hallelujah!

He would not be happy with the estrangement in our family. I do think he knew it would be this way. My other brother never wants to see my sister and I again. It’s because of all the stuff we did to him. Like helping all along, you know it does not matter. I told my mom to let it go. She blames him for me moving out and for treating my sister badly also. I told her, God sees all we have ever done. It is all out in open and we are accountable for not repenting and being obedient to him. No matter what you think or say you are going to die someday to the body. Your soul will never die. No stuff is worth being right or in charge or self-righteous over. God says the wise are made unwise because their thoughts are futile. They deny him and believe they are above all rule. They say I control my own destiny. No one is in charge of me. No stuff is worth anything in the hereafter. Your heart and soul, all of you being In Christ is above all else. Pray you can surrender to Christ as your Savior today.

Don’t let yourself be deceived. Don’t be believing that all religions lead to heaven and we all worship the same god. You can not create God to your fleshly standard. We have nothing to say about a thing. He tells us in his word that is why many will be without excuse. All will be accountable because we can look around and see his wonderful creations. Can you look around and truly say this all just came into being. If you can you are denying God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. You must repent or perish. Please don’t be one that He says to: “Depart from me I never knew you”.

And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

I am asking for prayer for my sister, Jackie. An MRI showed two spots on her pancreas. She is having an Endoscopic ultrasound Monday. Our faith is strong no matter. More and more diagnosis of this cancer is happening. three in my family since 2011. I am advising all to get checked. My family most of us have acid reflux. They say this cancer is not hereditary depending what doctor you see. I think it is. Some doctors say it is a death sentence when it gets there. Maybe earlier diagnosis will help we will get that answer. She is under stage one if it is.

Endoscopic Ultrasound

Physicians guide the endoscope through the stomach to provide visualization of a pancreas tumor(s).Although CT and MRI show many pancreatic cancers, some can be missed, especially when a tumor is small. If one highly suspects the presence of disease, endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) is essential.

EUS is a relatively new endoscopic procedure that uses an ultrasound probe at the tip of an endoscope to provide high-quality, detailed images of structures in and around the gastrointestinal tract. During upper endoscopy, the echoendoscope is placed in the stomach and duodenum to obtain detailed images of the entire pancreas and adjacent structures. Tumors are more accurately detected – or excluded – by EUS as compared to CT or MRI.

EUS also provides a means for tissue diagnosis. Under real-time EUS guidance, a fine needle aspiration (FNA) biopsy can be performed to provide a cytopathologic sample. EUS is a more accurate and safer method to perform biopsies of pancreatic tumors than other methods, including endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) and percutaneous image-guided biopsies.

God Bless, Thank you for prayers.
