GO FOR A RUN IN THE RAIN!

This has been a hectic week for the Brewers. After a week of company we had to make a three hour drive last Sunday to watch an old and dear friend, Mr. Prentice Holder celebrate his 100th birthday Monday in Baytown Texas. We enjoyed visiting our daughter, Lisa and granddaughter, Emma before another three hour drive home Tuesday.

Rain has been our constant companion this month and Wednesday morning I went fishing with John Sommers and it started a light rain and he asked me if I was ready to go in and I said no. Less than five minutes later the rain was so heavy you could not see 50 feet and we raced through the rain to my boat house and got soaked. During the trip back the rain was painful hitting our faces and when we got inside the boat house we both had a long laugh.

Fishing was terrible as the lake is above full and the water is muddy. So far this month we have had over 17.5 inches of rain, golf was near impossible, as I said fishing was no good and we had over 7 inches of rain just this week. When I got up this morning I was tired and a little despondent with the exception of a wonderful birthday party and a chance to see our siblings, this week was a bummer.

So I decided to take some time to read some 200 E messages that I received in the last two days and thankfully found the following message from my friends, Mike & Emma Cobb. Reading the story below made me realize how lucky I am to still just be alive.

It made me remember the events in my life with children and how fragile and inquisitive they can be. In addition to having 44 children, grandchildren and great grandchildren, I have a 10 year old pen-pal in Pennsylvania, Miss Emily Perser.   

I have no idea who wrote this message or if it is actually true. It did impact me to share this with as many people as possible and it put a smile back on my old wrinkled face. I hope you will smile, remember your events with children and have a wonderful day. The sun just came out here for the first time in five days, what a happy event. C Brewer  

A MOM RESPONDS TO HER DAUGHTER.

A little girl had been shopping with her Mom in Wal-Mart. She must have been 6 years old, this beautiful red haired, freckle faced image of innocence.

It was pouring outside. The kind of rain that gushes over the top of rain gutters, so much in a hurry to hit the earth it has no time to flow down the spout. We all stood there, under the awning, just inside the door of Wal-Mart.

We waited, some patiently, others irritated because nature messed up their hurried day.

I am always mesmerized by rainfall. I got lost in the sound and sight of the heavens washing away the dirt and dust of the world. Memories of running, splashing so carefree as a child came pouring in as a welcome reprieve from the worries of my day.

Her little voice was so sweet as it broke the hypnotic trance we were all caught in, ‘Mom let’s run through the rain,’ She said.

‘What?’ Mom asked.

‘Let’s run through the rain!’ She repeated.

‘No, honey. We’ll wait until it slows down a bit,’ Mom replied.

This young child waited a minute and repeated: ‘Mom, let’s run through the rain….’

‘We’ll get soaked if we do,’ Mom said.

‘No, we won’t, Mom. That’s not what you said this morning,’ the young girl said as she tugged at her Mom’s arm.

‘This morning? When did I say we could run through the rain and not get wet?

”Don’t you remember? When you were talking to Daddy about his cancer, you said, ‘ If God can get us through this, He can get us through anything!

The entire crowd stopped dead silent… I swear you couldn’t hear anything but the rain… We all stood silently. No one left. Mom paused and thought for a moment about what she would say.

Now some would laugh it off and scold her for being silly. Some might even ignore what was said. But this was a moment of affirmation in a young child’s life. A time when innocent trust can be nurtured so that it will bloom into faith.

‘Honey, you are absolutely right. Let’s run through the rain. If GOD lets us get wet, well maybe we just need washing,’ Mom said.

Then off they ran.

We all stood watching, smiling and laughing as they darted past the cars and yes, through the puddles. They got soaked.

They were followed by a few who screamed and laughed like children all the way to their cars. And yes, I did. I ran. I got wet. I needed washing.

Circumstances or people can take away your material possessions, they can take away your money, and they can take away your health. But no one can ever take away your precious memories…So, don’t forget to make time and take the opportunities to make memories every day.

To everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under heaven.

I HOPE YOU STILL TAKE THE TIME TO RUN THROUGH THE RAIN.

They say it takes a minute to find a special person, an hour to appreciate them, a day to love them, but then an entire life to forget them.

Send this to the people you’ll never forget and remember to also send it to the person who sent it to you. It’s a short message to let them know that you’ll never forget them.

If you don’t send it to anyone, it means you’re in a hurry.

Take the time to live!!!

Keep in touch with your friends, you never know when you’ll need each other and don’t forget to run in the rain!

Thanks Mike & Emma, you made my day!  CB

WHO RUINED THE AMERICAN DREAM?

The average American over fifty dreams of those golden years of their life that they worked so hard to enjoy. Unfortunately far too many do not take the responsibility to adequately prepare themselves. What scares me is that more than half of all Americans today depend on someone else to work and pay for them to just survive. Can you imagine the chaos when these people reach retirement and the welfare “well” goes dry? Thanks to Obama, Eric Holder and the Democrats, the Dead, those on welfare and illegals can still vote in most states but they don’t pay taxes.

Why does Congress, our President and the media ignore the basic facts that our country used to be the most creative, successful and free society to “EVER” last over 225 years. We did this because people from all over the world saw an opportunity to be free from ruling power oppression. They came here, or were raised like myself, to work hard, create their own opportunity and enjoy their dreams.

We had leaders who understood that people must have jobs to even be able to ever retire. What happened to change our government’s objective to provide opportunity to continue to enjoy our freedoms to that of just buying those votes and let someone else worry about the chaos later? Will my generation be the last to even dream about having any golden years?

The Golden years should be a time in your life when you should not have to worry about anything. Eliminate the alarm clock, walk in the park, go fishing, play golf, pray if you want to and smile when you wake up each day. Ignore all of life’s distress and the people who create it. Smile all day, surround yourself with friends and family who make you laugh. Love those who treat you well, pray for the ones who are unable to be happy for whatever reason. Life is too short to be sad or worry about anything. If our government would refocus its desire and create jobs everyone could again focus on the American dream.

Think about some important facts. There must be peace within all Americans. Every American and most legal immigrants used to understand that you are exactly where you are meant to be. All people are born to achieve every possibility that your health and mind can perceive. We are all filled with infinite possibilities that are born in yourself and others. Use these gifts to meet every objective you set for yourself. Pass on the love that was given to you. Accept the facts of any physical or mental defects you inherited and just try harder. Be yourself just the way you are.

What can you do to support the critical need to refocus our Congressional priorities, vote for those who pledge to stop the destruction of our Republic form of Government? Vote for those who promise to create jobs instead of entrenched Democrats who just promise more welfare to keep the poor people poor. Poor people and illegal aliens can’t create jobs.

Ladies, you are primarily responsible for the leaderless government we suffer with today, so I have two questions.

1. Is having free contraceptives for men and women, old and young, your prime reason to vote for Democrats?

2. Is having free contraceptives for your teen age daughters your prime reason to vote for Democrats?

Ladies, birth control is a parent’s responsibility, not the governments. Roe vs Wade is the law of the land and no one is powerful enough to reverse it now or ever. We need jobs instead of more illegals who do the work we pay lazy ass Americans on welfare to avoid that work. This is just “common sense” not rocket science.

Vote on November 4th to restore the American Dreams.

ELECTORIAL COLLEGE TIE VOTE RESOLUTION!

Low-life cheatin’ Republican??

The Presidential election 2012 was too close to call. Neither Mitt Romney nor Obama had enough votes to win. There was much talk about ballot recounting, court challenges, etc., but a week-long ice fishing competition seemed the sportsmanlike way to settle things.

The candidate that caught the most fish at the end of the week would win the election.

It was decided that there should be an ice fishing contest between the two candidates to determine the winner.

After much of back and forth discussion, it was decided that the contest would take place on a remote frozen lake in northern Wisconsin.

There were to be no observers present, and both men were to be sent out separately on this isolated lake and return at 5 P.M. with their catch for counting and verification by a team of neutral parties.

At the end of the first day, Mitt Romney returned to the starting line and he had 10 fish.

Soon, Obama returned and had no fish. Well, everyone assumed he was just having a bad day or something and hopefully, he would catch up the next day.

At the end of the 2nd day Mitt came in with 20 fish and Obama came in again with none.

That evening, the democrats got together secretly and said, “I think that Mitt Romney is a low-life, cheatin’ son-of-a-gun. Tomorrow don’t bother fishing. Just spy on him and see just how he is cheating.’

The next night (after Mitt returns with 50 fish), the democrats got together for the report of how the republicans were cheating.

Obama said, “You are not going to believe this, he’s cutting holes in the ice!”

Thanks Allan
