  1. Just got this update: "Jon is stable. They did an MRI yesterday and were able to identify no neck injury so they could take off the neck brace. This morning they did a tracheotomy and a direct feeding line into the stomach so all tubes are out of his mouth and he looks so much better. He looks like he'll be perfectly fine, but the doctors always let us know they have no idea what will be when he wakes up. Some severe brain injuries like his come out fine after a time, others less severe were vegetables."
  2. Since board policy is to not do this type of thing, editing is the direction we wanted to go. Thanks for your input, BrotherS.
  3. I just received word: "It was difficult yesterday and not looking good, but he was stable so they took him off the sedative drugs. He maintained through the day and night so they took a pressure sensing "bolt" out of his head this morning. He is breathing on his own which is good, but still in a coma. He may be in that state for days, weeks, or months. When he comes to, they have no idea what is state he will be in. They do know the brain damage was severe. All are here, Hannah coming tomorrow, and Ben on Thurs. His wife Laura will hardly leave his side, but trusting God and will be with him to the end, whatever that may be. God certainly is orchestrating all this and part of his plan. Pat Gordon sent a pastor he knows from here to visit. They are having a prayer meeting tomorrow afternoon for him. The military is amazing, wanting to cover all travel expenses. We have a peace but don't know what the outcome will be. We are planning to be here till Friday." They appreciate the prayer. As do we.
  4. I just found out today that the son of other friends of ours has passed away. I don't know the details, but I do know that he was only in his mid-20s. The family name is Hammond. Please be in prayer for the parents and his siblings, as well as other family/friends. Thanks.
  5. Thank you for editing your post. I hope that you edit the post on Facebook as well. This is a good lesson in not making assumptions about our brothers and sisters in Christ. Have a great day!
  6. @brandplucked - please edit your post to remove references to "Bible mocker." MountainChristian was not mocking the KJB - he was asking a question. Granted, mayhap the first part of his statement didn't need to be worded in that way, but an immediate assumption that he was mocking was wrong as well. Mountain is a member of this forum and has never given any indication that he does not accept the authority of the KJB. I would assume, since you wrote your answer in the format that you did, that you placed this on a separate site. Integrity would dictate that you change the accusation there. I thank you for your answer to the question, which was quite detailed. But, again, please edit the attack on his character out of your answer. Thank you.
  7. We just received this email this morning: " Jonathan was in a serious accident on Friday morning. He had a shear to his brain from the whiplash-the brain shifted inside his skull. The last MRI on Jon’s brain showed that the shear on his brain was severe-many broken/bleeding neurons that often do not show up on the scan, but in this case are very prominent which shows considerable tears. The next couple days are the most critical. They may bring him out of the induced coma on Monday and have no idea of the results: brain dead, normal or somewhere in between." This is one of the sons of very good friends of ours. They headed out for the 12-hour-drive this morning, as have their other kids. Please pray for them. For Jonathan, their request is God's will (he is married, so his wife needs prayer, too). For them for wisdom in communicating with their kids. And, we would add: for the entire family to grow closer to God through this. @BroMatt - do you remember the Grants? This is their son.
  8. I'm glad you don't,either. I'm also glad we still have the freedom to choose one way or the other here. For now.
  9. Probably. But these chickens seem to enjoy the swings. :)
  10. We haven't raised chickens in a lot of years, but I have to wonder if they'd be happier with some toys - like these swings. Does anyone here raise chickens? If so, would you ever get them a swing? (the link is to the online store, but it should open to the page of videos) I also saw a clip of chickens pecking at a head of cabbage that was hanging from a rope. Playing with their food... https://www.fowlplayproducts.com/videos

  12. I've seen cooking shows that use them, but I've never tasted them myself. Are they similar to green beans in texture?
  13. This "laws" of etiquette were written at a time when public behavior was more restrained. Has anyone read Rules of Civility? There are 150 rules that George Wn had to memorize (and he used them for cursive practice). Some of them are head-shaking, but when thought about in the context of the time, they are more understandable. This list obviously places a great deal of import on the outward, without referencing scripture to support it. And some of them seem silly. But wouldn't it be nice if society were a little more concerned with propriety than it is now? As to "ill-bred" = it was considered bad manners to be late to anything. Being late to church was especially bad. Because church was very important back then. It is distracting when people come in to church late. And that kind of distraction was ill-bred in the past's more genteel society. The lady may have been pharasaical. Sadly, those who subscribed to Puritanism and it's offshoots were pharasaical (I don't know what religion she was, but it sounds like whatever church she attended was Puritanical at best). But I don't know - isn't it bad manners, even today, to be late to something? Yes, problems arise, accidents happen. But, by and large, there are no real excuses for people to come to church late. It is disrespectful, IMO. And, thus, ill-bred. (as in the "rude" part of the definition). edited to add: yes, I know there are people who might come visit and not know the time service starts, etc. Those folks aren't regular attenders - I do believe it is ill-bred of regular members to be late to church habitually.
  14. It isn't only Disney. Any Holllywood make of a Bible story needs to be considered suspect. Even back as far as Ben Hur and The Ten Commandments, both of which starred Charleton Heston. Ben Hur, of course, is fiction so of course that must be taken into account. But The 10 Commandments is a mish-mash of incidents that took place, combining and messing up many of the events (for instance, Korah, Dathan, and Abijah were swallowed up by the earth as a result of the golden calf incident in the movie). Any time a production company that is not biblical-based creates a movie about the Bible, Christians need to be leery.
  15. Well, when we exhale, we breathe out carbon dioxide. Plants take in carbon dioxide. So, in that way I think it's beneficial...but, then, I'm a woman. =D Every once in a while I will wipe the leaves of my two indoor plants and I will talk to them. But, hey - I have an empty nest, no dog, and no grandchildren, so give me some slack. hehehe
