As most of you know, my wife Robbin went to the hospital last Friday evening with an undetermined illness.
For two days the doctors ran every test imaginable to try and find the cause.  … During this time, I must say that she was in real trouble and quite frankly, I was scared to death for her. …. Finally, they did determine that the cause was a severe infection in the blood stream … The source is still unknown but they do know how to treat it.  …….. I was able to bring her home with me yesterday.  She is still extremely weak but is feeling somewhat better. …….. Your prayers & support were .. and are still greatly appreciated!

During those dark hours of waiting and praying, many thoughts flooded my mind ….. all the feelings and memories of past days …. of 43 years spent together …. of how long its been … and then the reality of how short this journey on earth truly is  ….. and then I began thinking  about all the people living in this out-of-control world and how little time each of them have to make the most important decision they will ever be faced with, which ultimately will determine where they spend eternity. 

When I watched my wife struggling, it made me realize that none of us know when our “moment” will be upon us.  Just a few days earlier, she was OK and life as we knew it was good and moving along normally.
But then … BAM … it all changed … and so very quickly!!  

So this week. I feel that God wants me to share with each of you a call to salvation … After reading this, I would hope & pray that each of you would take just a moment out of your busy lives and reflect on what I’m about to share with you ………. 

……… One heartbeat … that’s it! … that’s all! ……… You’re only one heartbeat away from eternity …

……… Everything you have … your life, your breath … this moment … it’s all borrowed …

……… It’s all a gift … and at any moment, it all ends with a heartbeat … and there is NO MORE TIME …

……… One heartbeat … and the chance to be saved is gone … there is no more choosing …

……… It’s all sealed for eternal life or eternal death …

……… The only thing we can be sure of is that it will come … and the only time we can be sure of is now …
           Right Now!

……… Now is all you and I have … now is the Time of Salvation  …….

Remember this … There is no sin so deep that His love isn’t deeper… no life so hopeless … No soul so far away … and no darkness so dark that His love isn’t greater still.

God is Salvation … God is deliverance … protection … rescue … freedom … refuge … and safety. 

It all begins with the receiving … with the opening of one’s heart … with the turning away from darkness and to the light … with the giving of one’s self … the committing of one’s life … a vow of love … a prayer … a decision … a total & unconditional YES! ….. and the time is NOW!!!

Once again, thank you all from the bottom of my heart for all your love & support during this time of trial … It just reconfirms to me that there is nothing has wonderful and reassuring as a loving Christian family …

Until next time,

Red
