Can we have 15
seconds of your time?
Fifteen seconds is the time you lose when you are traveling 55 mph and have to stop for a stop sign.
Recently my wife and I were seriously injured in an automobile accident. The driver of the vehicle that hit us must have thought that 15 seconds out of her life to stop was just too much.
In our vehicle was a 17-month-old baby who, by the grace of God, only had some bruising from her car seat. Those 15 seconds cost my wife and me two weeks in the hospital, months of recovery, 23 broken bones, two punctured lungs, a large bump on the head and lots of bruises.
We are lucky to be alive. As you are traveling throughout the year, remember, the lost 15 seconds in your life stopping for that sign is better that the loss of your life, or someone else’s.
Please just take just 15 seconds to stop. I guarantee that those 15 seconds are worth it.

As my Daddy used to say, “Many are in a hurry to their own funeral!” Please drive safe, Albuquerque is the home of the fastest drivers in the world I think! Ugh!
Here is another wonderful story that Darlene Quiring had……….“Daddy, why are you talking to the snow shovel?”
Asked the Heart Farmers Daughter. The big man in coveralls pursed his lips and emptied his chest. His breath became like a rising shroud in the frozen air. The big burly dude looked down at his daughter and laughed. “I wasn’t talking to the snow shovel my darling Beauty, I was talking to God. I was complaining about shoveling all of this snow.”
The Heart Farmer welcomed the break in shoveling and continued to share with his daughter. “Clearing our neighbors sidewalk seems like such a small thing to do. I was complaining to God about this small thing of helping our neighbor. I told God that we should be doing big things that would help lots of people.” The Heart Farmer paused. His daughter took the pause as her opportunity to ask another question. “Daddy, did God say answer your question?”
Her dad was leaning on his snow shovel watching his daughter’s breath rise into the skies. He smiled again and said: “Yes my beautiful snowflake, God did answer. He told me that when I was busy doing big things that I didn’t listen very well. He said I didn’t find time to talk to Him when I was doing the big things. He said he sent the snow to slow me down. He said that He has to be able to trust me with one neighbor before He can let me serve lots of neighbors. He said I have to be faithful in little things before He will give me big things. He also told me that my children are watching me help my neighbor. Someday, He said, they will be doing the same things you are doing, in fact they will be doing greater things. Your children will be like you as a father because you became like me as your Father.”
A tear formed in the big man’s eye. He stuffed his shovel into a snow bank and swept his daughter up into his arms. “I love you my darling Beauty!” He said. The little girl giggled as she curled her arms around his neck. She drew her head back and then kissed the tear on her daddy’s cheek. “I love you daddy! I love you to where all the snowflakes are made and back!”
Thanks for your time.

Dear Family of Our Lord Jesus Christ,
HANG ONTO YOUR HAT!!! THIS IS POWERFUL HOLY SPIRIT DYNAMITE!!!!!!!
Hang on Folks!
The steps of a good man are order by the Lord,
And He delights in his way.
Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down;
For the Lord upholds him. Ps. 37: 23-24
Don’t give up! Don’t give in and NO compromise! Pastor Leonard Navarre
This is what the Lord has given me today to fill your CUP with!
The Lord has trained me up to always be prepared, He set the stage for an unexpected sermon at an Albuquerque Business yesterday!!! WOW WEE! Powerful movement of the Holy Spirit! Be prepared friends, you never know when the Lord is going to call on you to PREACH! Yes you can PREACH! PREACH it outside, in the streets, in the stores! My Uncle Joe always said God will give you the words at all times! AMEN!
Another mass shooting in America last night in a local grocery store in Elkhart, Indiana, three people were killed. IN A GROCERY STORE! In Albuquerque last month a person was stabbed in a grocery store. The only safe place is in the arms of the Lord.
It is very apparent that more and more people in the United States are suffering from profound moral and spiritual handicaps without having and idea of where to look, so many are looking in the wrong places. It is here the need for new Christian leadership becomes clear. The leaders of the future will be those who dare to claim their irrelevance in the contemporary world as a divine vocation that allows them to enter into a deep solidarity with the anguish underlying all the glitter of success, and to bring the light of Jesus Christ there.
That was shown to me in the book by Henri Nouwen, In The Name Of Jesus
Pray over this my Dear, Dear friends, share this with those going through the fire!………The great man of God, Andrew Murray wrote this when he was facing a terrible crises……
First, he brought me here, it is by His will that I am in this strait place: in that fact I will rest.
Next, He will keep me here in His love, and give me grace to behave as His child.
Then He will make the trial a blessing, teaching me the lessons He intends me to learn, and working in me the grace He means to bestow.
Last, in His good time He can bring me out again——-how and when He knows.
Let me say I am here,
1. By God’s appointment,
2. In His keeping,
3. Under His training,
4. For His time.
Have you witnessed God’s power in the past? Experienced His pardon? Enjoyed His presence? he who has carried you this far isn’t going to drop you now!
God has a purpose, and as hymnist William Cowper, pronounced Cooper, put it, “God is His own interpreter, and He will make it plain.”
This is very old and unattributed poem……..
When God wants to drill a man,
And thrill a man,
And skill a man,
To play the noblest part;
When He yearns with all His heart
To create so great and bold man
That all the world shall be amazed,
Watch His methods, watch His ways!
How he ruthlessly perfects
Whom He royally elects!
How He hammers him and hurts him,
And with mighty blows converts him
Into trial shapes of clay which
Only God understands;
While his tortured heart is crying
And he lifts beseeching hands!
How He bends but never breaks
When his good He undertakes;
How he uses whom He chooses,
And with every purpose fuses him;
By every act induces him
To try His splendor out——–
God knows what He’s about.
There are no mistakes in God’s plan! Jesus does all things well. A.W. Tozer said, “To the child of God, there is no such thing as an accident. He travels an appointed way……
