BEACH EROSION WITH ‘KING TIDE’
The photo top left- before rising tide waters overflowed into the famous rainbow tower Hilton Hawaiian Village lagoon. The red arrows and circled lagoon show how far ocean water came ashore. On the right is a futile effort to keep the water back and when I walked along there palm tree roots were already exposed. Other photos are from in front of the Moana-Surfrider Hotel where beach chairs were removed; trash barrels are half buried in sand; no sunbathers on Prince Kuhio Beach; towels, clothes, misc. found washing away or almost buried in sand were thrown over fence and hedges by a kind man gathering them up. Shore erosion continues around the Hawaiian islands washing away the sand on our beautiful beaches. I had only an iPhone and have no high surf photos with surfers. Sorry about that! (See ‘SHORE EROSION’ in Tab Bar)
‘ . . . I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore CHOOSE LIFE that both thou and thy seed may live: That thou mayest love the LORD thy God, and that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for he is thy life, and the length of thy days: (Deut 30:19-20)
Make the RIGHT choice!
Place your trust in God; let God direct your life.
‘Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil. It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones.'(Prov 3:5-8)
Choose the right path and go in that direction; follow Jesus who will show you the way to go.
Jesus said, ‘I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. (John 14:6)
‘Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, that leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. (Mt 7:13-14)
Believe in Jesus and Live!
‘For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (John 3:16)
Obey God’s Word and be blessed!
‘If ye love me, keep my commandments. And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. . . he will guide you into all truth . . and he will show you things to come.’ (John 14:15-17; 16:13)
I pray that you have already made the RIGHT CHOICE to FOLLOW JESUS . If you haven’t done so, DO SO TODAY.
‘Now is the accepted time; behold, NOW is the day of salvation.’ (2 Cor 6:2)

THANK YOU FOR YOUR VISITS!!!
I am thankful to each and everyone of you for visiting my blogsite and Dr. Gold’s site. Dr. Gold is my other half, who writes mainly on biblical Endtimes issues. Our desire is that God will continue to move in your lives as He has in ours and that you will be blessed and encouraged, as we all draw closer to Him each day. Let us be ever mindful of the signs about us that tell us that we need to prepare ourselves for the soon coming of the Lord. God delights in those who seek after Him, and He loves us with an everlasting love. He will not leave us nor forsake us. Trust Him totally as the psalmist David who said:
I will love thee, O LORD, my strength.
The LORD is my rock,and my fortress, and my deliverer;
my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler,and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.
I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised:
so shall I be saved from mine enemies. (Psalm 18:1-3)
I just heard this song after Easter, but wanted to share it with you. It’s a beautiful remake and so appropriate for this time of year. Hope you enjoy! Praise Yah!! Hallelujah!!
The decorations for Easter/Resurrection Sunday were being taken down in our beautiful church when I decided to quickly take a picture. It was a memorable and touching service that started with a photo on the large screen showing the two pastors bearing this large (bare) wooden cross upon their shoulders on Good Friday. A small group walked with them along the street of the block where the church is located. What a difference in program from last year 2016. Besides the traditional brass ensemble and hand bell choir, we sang many of my favorite hymns- Christ the Lord is Risen Today, Because He Lives, Lord I Lift Your Name on High, (with hand motions by the congregation led by the song leader), and He Lives, the old-time hymn I used to sing in the Baptist church I attended as a teenager. Most importantly, the pastor preached a powerful message on the Risen Christ based on Mt. 28:1-10. Christ defeated sin and death at the cross for us.
CHRIST IS RISEN; HE IS RISEN INDEED!
HE IS OUR BLESSED HOPE AND COMING KING! HALLELUJAH!

“… if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain…” 1 Cor 15:17
Jesus said, “I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:
And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?” John 11:25-26
Job believed that he would be resurrected one day. He said:
“For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth:
And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God:
Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another; though my reins be consumed within me.” Job 19:25-27

If you have just a little extra time on your hands you can draw and paint. In fact, if I can, you can. I don’t remember ever drawing anything from my youth to adulthood. But now as a retiree I found a relaxing, satisfying and therapeutic way to stir up my creative juices! Check out my gallery and find links to online art forums and free or inexpensive lessons to help you get started drawing and painting!
