God Morning Brother Dewey, well as the readers have been reading, a short while ago( 2 years) you made a big decision to walk away from a regular paying job, one that helped you know the bills would be paid, to a new and wonderful ministry, a ministry that would be fully supported by people and most importantly through your FAITH that God will ensure the success of this ministry you chose to call FOR GODS GLORY ALONE MINISTRIES. Your faith, the work you and your wife and many others have put in have brought the word and love of Jesus to many.
I enjoy the Daily cup, you put alot of work into this daily, you pray hard for so many every minute of your day.
Thru FGGAM I have been blessed to become friends with others in your ministry, I think of Karen Rowe, Rick Staumbaugh, Shonda Savage (volunteer writers for FGGAM) all such wonderful and strong Jesus lights. I have enjoyed all their contributions to your ministry thru their writings, and thru our connections via facebook.
Today it is my prayer that everyone who has been blessed with the FFGAM ministry would make a decision to offer up a support donation, you work very hard, and if each person who reads this today, would pray on guidance and ask the Lord how much to offer your ministry, I believe that the yearly budget needed to operate and sustain the FGGAM could very well be on strong footing. I know that FGGAM is a great and careful steward of all funds sent to your ministry.
People are doing the ice bucket challenge left and right to support a great cause like ALS and I believe that is awesome, well now I am making a BIBLE VERSE CHALLENGE, post your most favorite and encouraging verse and make a donation to FGGAM. I will begin it here, my life verse is Jeremiah 29 11 thu 15 and with that i will donate 10 dollars today to the ministry. I now call out Patricia Fisher, Karen Rowe and Shonda Savage to take the BIBLE VERSE CHALLENGE. LETS SEE HOW FAR WE CAN GO WITH THIS..
Dewey, maybe you can make a thingy on your webpage so we can follow the BIBLE VERSE CHALLENGES ..??
HAVE A GOD WONDERFUL JESUS BLESSED DAY MY FRIENDS..
ps this is my puppies hungry for some food, can we be hungry for some word of Jesus daily also??
Randal Thom in Lakefield, Minnesota
Thank you for the kind words Randal, I was asked to take part in the ‘bucket challenge’ and I told Justin Johnson I could not swim! LOL! LOL!
Randal, I call him Randy, since we grew up in the same neighborhood in Windom, Minnesota and played baseball together, has been a dear friend for years! Randy now lives in nearby Lakefield, Minnesota. His doggy’s are pictured here along with him playing Santa Claus and that is FGGAM friend Darlene Quiring from Mt. Lake, Minnesota with Randy. Randy plays Santa every year around southwest Minnesota lifting the spirits of so many and also bringing forth the message of Jesus Christ. The day this picture was taken with Darlene, Randy was helping Darlene with her Christmas event for children and families.
Randy like all of us has been through tough times, very tough, including the plane crash he was in years ago that caused the death of his brother, Darrell Dwayne Thom, in 1991. Darrell was the pilot of the private plane. Darrel was born on 8/23/57, he was a year younger than me, we also played ball together. Very tough times for Randy and his family. Randy was severally injured in the crash. From everything Randy has been through he has become a stronger man of God. I must say, I have been through some very rough times in my life, and I have become stronger in our Lord Jesus Christ. I am sure you also have had your tough spots. My point here is that we are not to give up on anybody. Since the Lord put me and Sharon into FGGAM, God has sent to us many people society has discarded. God does not give up on anyone of us! Amen! PTL!

How God works: Last night the Lord was showing me to post the story of the ‘fork’ and the ‘garbage truck’. Well I found the garbage truck and the fork is being sent to me! LOL! LOL! LOL! Anyhow last Sunday in Reserve I told the folks that we need to drop our garbage at the door before entering Church, or if you have any garbage you are carrying with you right now drop it to the floor, let us rid ourselves of GARBAGE! PRAISE GOD this post is from DARLENE! HOW ABOUT THAT!
We were driving in the right lane when suddenly a black car jumped out of a parking space right in front of us.
My taxi driver slammed on his brakes, skidded, and missed the other car by just inches! The driver of the other car whipped his head around and started yelling at us.
My taxi driver just smiled and waved at the guy. And I mean, he was really friendly.
So I asked, ‘Why did you just do that? This guy almost ruined your car and sent us to the hospital!’
This is when my taxi driver taught me what I now call, ‘The Law of the Garbage Truck.’He explained that many people are like garbage trucks. They run around full of garbage, full of frustration, full of anger, and full of disappointment.
As their garbage piles up, they need a place to dump it and sometimes they’ll dump it on you.. Don’t take it personally.
Just smile, wave, wish them well, and move on. Don’t take their garbage and spread it to other people at work, at home, or on the streets.
The bottom line is that successful people do not let garbage trucks take over their day.
Life’s too short to wake up in the morning with regrets,
so …. Love the people who treat you right. Pray for the ones who don’t.
Life is ten percent what you make it and ninety percent how you take it!
Have a garbage-free day!
