WELCOME: Introduction

BIO:
I am thankful to the Lord for my Christian parents who brought me up to love the Lord, and who taught me that there is no such thing as a second-generation Christian, but that everyone must personally accept Christ's gift of salvation, the shedding of His blood on Calvary. I gave my heart to the Lord at the age of eight.

My husband, Hart, and I celebrate our fiftieth-eighth wedding anniversary this year (2015), on August 24th. During our married lifetime we shared in the raising of many children, none of whom were born to us. I also worked with physically and mentally handicapped people, and have been caregiver for elderly relatives and friends. Now I am enjoying life with Hart, our four cats, Ezee, Scooter, Sparky, and Sassy(all cast-offs or rescue cats), and our dog, Peppy, (Corky died in December, '147.) We adopted Corky from an animal rescue in December '07; and then came along our lively little “forever puppy”, Peppy, now almost 5. Oh yes, and our 2 fan-tail fish—Leo and Cleo, with Hoover—the cleaner fish.

My older sister, Evelyn Splane, who has spent her life as a missionary to India, joined our family in April 2006. We enjoy having her in our home. She has not only accepted us and our life-style, but she loves the dogs and the cats and the fish as much as we do...God bless her!

In 2004 Hart was taken ill with staph infection, nearly losing his life. In April of 2007 he had his right leg amputated, due to MRSA (super bug). Since then he has had to learn to adjust to life in a wheelchair; however, he uses his time to the utmost, encouraging others. He has met many suffering people on the internet, and feels that his health problems are insignificant compared to those with whom he corresponds.

My accomplishments: Besides having graduated from Bible college in Three Hills, Alberta, Canada, I have received certificates from two international writing courses, as well as from business college. Several of my poems, stories, pet articles, and Bible studies have been published in anthologies and local magazines and newspapers, and most recently, on-line. I have won several prizes for my poetry, and have written poems for special occasions. In 2005, my book, “If You Only Knew!” was published, but I did not renew the contract.

I have dedicated this website, "Occupy Till I Come" to God, and I do hope and pray that any and all who visit here, will be drawn closer to the Lord.  May God bless you and keep you in His care.  Amen.

Statement of Faith - - I believe in:
* The only true and living God, infinite, eternal, unchangeable.
* The inspiration and final authority of the Scriptures--Old and New Testaments.
* The Virgin birth, and Deity of our Lord Jesus.
* The physical resurrection of Christ from the dead.
* The personality and Deity of the Holy Spirit, the third Person of the "Trinity" - [a Triune God - being three in one.] (God as subsisting in three distinct Persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit)
* The personality of the Devil as the enemy of Christ, the saints, and the angels.
* The fall of man and the depravity of the human race.
* The guilty and lost condition of all humankind, outside of Christ.
* Salvation by faith through the substitutionary death of Jesus Christ.
* The infilling of the Holy Spirit for the child of God.
* Christian victory through faith in and obedience to Jesus Christ, under the Holy Spirit.
* The second premillennial coming of Christ. And the Rapture of the Saints.
* The physical resurrection of all men-believers to everlasting joy, the lost to everlasting conscious torment.
* The Church's sole business-shunning worldliness and looking for Christ's return-to spread the Gospel to all the world.

Look Up! Look Up!

Keep looking up. God knows our needs
He always hears our prayer
He understands our hurting soul.
Our God is always there.

Sometimes when we are hurting,
we feel like giving up.
We cry aloud in anguish.
“Lord, I’ve had about enough.

“Please take me home! I’m tired of life.
I’m ready to give up!”
But listen carefully and you will hear,
“My child, look up. Look up!

”Keep looking up. Look up! Look up!
I am beyond the sky.
Although you may not see me,
I’m always standing by.”

So when you are discouraged,
Remember, this, my Friend.
Keep looking up. Look up! Look up!
God is with you to the end.
