David of the Bible

In the Bible, David, the son of Jesse, was a shepherd boy who became the king of Isreal. He is one of the most memorable characters in the Holy Scriptures. I like to learn about him and pull from his life things I could instill in my children.

I Samuel 16 tells the beginning of the path that lead him to be king. Saul, King of Isreal, was a troubled soul and needed something to calm his stress. A young man recommended David to play the harp for him. The Bible gives a description of David. He was one with many talents:

A skillful musician
A mighty man of valor
One prudent in speech
A handsome man
and the Lord was with him.

Micheal W. Smith

Micheal W. Smith is a famous Christian singer who was a part of Amy Grant's band for years when she was really popular. Then he went solo. He had a crossover hit to the secular. He has at least five kids. And I gather he's a humble man trying to direct people to honor God. I like his version of Rich Mullins' Awesome God.

Awesome God (live)

In this video, It's great how the audience spontaneously begins to sing along with Micheal W. Smith as he quietly plays the beginning of Awesome God. There is strength behind Christians sincerely coming together to honor God even when it's a simple chorus.

Tonight, My Soul, Be still And Sleep

I found this poem on the Back to the Bible website under the Streams in the Desert devotion I read this morning. It was most likely written my Madame Guyon.

The Bold Youth, David of the Bible

In my life right now I feel like the youth David who boldly came against Goliath the Philistine when no man in the Isaelite army would. As a family, our income is paycheck to paycheck, and I'm fighting for truth against a giant corporation.

I had to repost this because this big event is only about two weeks away. The recent local news station, KTUL, Channel 8 gave a newstory that you must now have a ticket to attend.

On June 15, 1957 a brand spanking-new Plymouth Belvedere Sport Coupe was buried in a time capsule under the sidewalk in front of the courthouse of Tulsa, Oklahoma. The event celebrated the 50 birthday of Oklahoma's statehood. The car was filled with several artifacts of the time such as:

10 gallons of gasoline
5 quarts of oil
Flags flown over our nation's capital, state capital, Tulsa county and the city

Life Is A Fartlek Again

The writer of Marathonpundit emailed my husband to let us know he cross posted my fartlek blog entry. I'm honored.

He also added some interesting word origin info. He said that, Fartlek comes from Swedish, it translates into 'sudden burst'. Like English, Swedish is a Germanic language, so the root word, for—er—you know—must be the same as the one for fartlek.

Here's the definition:

"a training technique, used esp. among runners, consisting of bursts of intense effort loosely alternating with less strenuous activity."

Dictionary.com. Dictionary.com Unabridged (v 1.1). Random House, Inc. http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/fartlek (accessed: June 01, 2007).

My life gave me a 'sudden burst' of stress when I was falsely accused on my job.

Your Smilin' Face

No one can tell me that I'm doin' wrong whenever I see you smile at me.

Those are old words from an upbeat James Taylor song. He sings about a girl in the song. But the chorus reminds me of my children. Just being around them lately gives me a peaceful smile that will pop up from time to time with little warning.

Start of a New Day

At around 6:30 this morning I prayed to God. But I did it in a new way. I wrapped my quilt around me and got on my knees in front of the open window in our bedroom.

God Does Speaks In 2007

One of the passions of my life is the Bible. I'm not a perfect human but I do enjoy spending time focusing on the things of God. This helps me be a better person. Can God directly talk to me through the New American Standard words of the Bible? Even in 2007. . . Yes! Yes! Yes.

God Is Powerful

Fear God for He is mighty. That's not a Bible verse I just made it up. But I did read about how mighty He is in Romans 11 today:

33 Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and unfathomable His ways!

34 For who has know the mind of the Lord, or who became His counselor?

35 Or who has first given to Him that it might be paid back to Him again?

36 For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be the glory forever. Amen.

The Lord Will Provide

I received a "thinking of you" card in the mail today from someone at my church. Her name is Jill. When I opened it handwriting mostly filled it. Jill and her husband were our Sunday School teachers when we first began attending our church. In the years past of their life they had been missionaries in another country.

Fight the Victim Mentality

My brother has been trying to get a hold of me for a few days. I didn't want to talk to him because I'm embarrassed from the ridiculous lie that has gotten me fired and labeled me by the company as one who had gross misconduct.

Finally, he got ahold of me. I was annoyed and told him I just wanted to be around my family right now. Then he told of something that happened to him.

I Love This Part . . . The Kentucky Headhunters!!

This blog entry is dedicated my sweet friend that I used to work with. He was from Kentucky and he liked this song. I just now found it on Youtube. I miss talking to him and several others that I would joke around with alot. I hope it brings a smile . . .No, actually I hope it makes him pretend like he's the lead singer with an air guitar!

You Can Find Time to Read

You gotta read this quote I found on the Mrs. Happy Housewife blog (my favorite) and then you need to go pick out a good book and read it to the very end.

“Once upon a time in the dead of winter in the Dakota territory, Theodore Roosevelt took off in a makeshift boat down the Little Missouri River in pursuit of a couple of thieves who had stolen his prized rowboat.

Cecil Dill, The Manualist

Here's some history you probably haven't heard. Cecil Dill is a manualist, someone who makes music with just his hands. He's not alive now. He was popular in the 1930's. Watch and enjoy these videos:

Help Others

I found another good quote on the Mrs. Happy Housewife site. You should just go there and check her site out. She has several interesting aspects. I can go there and read the Bible online with an audio and then have access to the best devotional readings. And then in the upper lefthand corner she searches out interesting websites for each day during the week.

The quote encourages always remember to help others. Even when I get old I don't want to just sit in an easy chair and waste my time on TV.

Psalm 72

18 Blessed be the LORD God, the God of Israel,

Who alone works wonders.

19 And blessed be His glorious name forever;

And may the whole earth be filled with His glory.

Amen, and Amen.

We'll Have A Good Time Then

Samuel, my son, is growing up real fast. Just three years to college. The rest are close behind. I hope I can figure out a way to earn money at home to focus on them more. This morning as I awoke, a song was running through my head.

Here are two clips of Harry Chapin's unforgettable song, Cat's In the Cradle:

In the future when they're gone and living in the grown up world, I soooooo hope I can look back and say I did the best I could with my four most prized possessions.


Hey, I've been settling into mommahood lately. Calming down and putting more effort into my offspring, not the "hype yourself up" attitude you get when you're trying to get ahead in your job. I'm curious what would happen if we were blessed with a new baby.

I gotta watch an elderly lady today. I'll be there for about four hours. Sue who also takes care of the elderly lady would like for me to clean the house too. I'm glad I work for Sue. She's firm and straight forward with me as my boss but then she's kind to me as a friend and in paying me. She's almost 77years old and still takes care of the 93 year old woman she has taken care of for 16 years. I want to be able to still do things like Sue does when I get that old. I admire and learn from her.

The Amazing Daniel

I've been trying to read the Bible through since January. I listen to it in audio while I read along with the text on Heartlight's website. I just started the old testament book of Daniel. I have much respect for Daniel because he was seriously dedicated to God all his life.

Alan Parson's Eye In The Sky

Anger because you've been done wrong can cause you to want to get even. This is wrong. Forgiveness and mentally working through it (AND PRAYER) and then moving on in life is the best way.

Yesterday when I was driving around in Tulsa I thought of a song that I hadn't heard in years. It's called the Eye In The Sky by the Alan Parson's Project. I looked it up on YouTube.

Buried Car In Tulsa, Oklahoma

Today at noon the famous Belvidere car that has been buried for 50 years will be lifted out of its opened up resting place. Then it will be taken to the convention center and at 6:30 pm (Tulsa time) the plastic will be removed.

There has been much concern about its condition on the local news because water was inside the vault. But it also has a plastic covering. So now everyone is thinking that the damage may not be substantial. Here is a link to Channel 8.

In glove compartment unpaid parking ticket
Time capsule of 1957 at rear of car

Car is wrapped in several layers of covering that has a rusty residue

Some Disappointment, the Belvedere

The Belvedere car after they pulled it out had a tear in the outer bag. The bag was torn open on the back brake light. That means that all the 1800 pounds of water that had been pumped out has defintely damaged it.

Our local KJRH Channel 2 has a slide show of what was revealed after first opening the vault. Click here.

Initial Opening of the Buried Car Vault

This is a video that was taken by a Tulsa World Newspaper photographer. It was when water was first discovered in the vault.

Jack Frank has been the most famous historian in the Tulsa area for many years. Here is a video clip he did a while before the vault was open.

Here's a Plymouth car commercial from 1957:

Just in case you haven't seen these on Youtube here are some clips from the ceremony. I've been trying to find clips of the interior. I only saw one and it was on OETA channel 11 in Tulsa but unavailable on the internet. The interior in the backseat had big holes in it.

Read the Book: Don't Look Now, Your Character Is Showing

Lately, I've been getting alot of traffic to my site. I live near Tulsa, Oklahoma. The Tulsa area is a great place to live. It's a livable place. With lots of natural beauty from the peaceful greenery of plants everywhere. There are good people living in Tulsa. Many of them are Christians and are business owners.

Tulsa's Best Businesses: Economy Hearing Aid

If you ever need a hearing aid when you're in the Tulsa area you need to visit an Economy Hearing Aid Center. They have four locations.

Don Woods, a former meteorologist for Channel 8 news says, "My Friends at Economy Will Help You Choose the Hearing Aid That's Right for You" If you're like me you'll probably also think it's neat that you will receive a free Gusty drawing with any hearing aid purchase.

You can find them in the Yellow Pages on the internet.

Don M. is the owner of this good business. He is a man of character. A character quality that shines brightly through his successful life is that of gratefulness.*

Buried Car: More detailed Pictures

I didn't get to see the Belvedere at the Convention Center. It was there just over the weekend. I imagine it was packed with 10s of 1000s of people waiting in line. So I have been just keeping an eye out for new videos that pop up on YouTube:

I'm still searching for some detailed shots of the interior. I'll keep looking. :)

The time capsule contained a 46 star flag.

I found these old car pics on Buriedcar.com. Alot of them are Plymouth.


When I was out looking for a part-time job I saw an old friend I used to work with. Her name is Debra. She's about 10 years older than me. I like to talk to her. She's comfortable to be around. She hasn't worked at Whirlpool for awhile and said she would like to get a job at a nearby bank so she doesn't have to drive so much.

Ezekiel In the Valley of the Dry Bones

I have a book that tells Old testament stories in easy-to-read words with all the important details. It's great for understanding these wonderful old stories from the Holy Scriptures.

Daniel And Alexander the Great

This morning I read chapter 8 of the book of Daniel. Many theologians have strong evidence to believe that Daniel prophesied of the conquerings of a mighty leader. Prophecy in the Bible has symbolism and visions which are hard to understand. But there is good possibility this prophecy is paralleled with Alexander the Great.

A knowledgable teacher of world history would have a good foundation in Christianity and truth and then know how to parallel the prophecies of the Bible with recorded history.

Phil Collins

Eeeeasscchhhhhh! This is a little embarrassing but you can date me as growing up in the "80's quite easily if you watch these Phil Collins videos. But I do like his incredible talent via the drums and his voice. I used to "cruise" the tiny, mostly-empty town of Collinsville, OK when I was young and I had a Phil Collins tape I'd listen to. I would have worn it out if someone hadn't stolen it out of my car!

What Are the Odds?

Lately, one of my favorite devotional books is Streams In The Desert by Mrs. Charles Cowman. I like her set up. Each devotion Has a Bible verse, an interesting subject, good Christian examples of the point she is trying to make and then a poem that is focused on her lesson.

I read Streams in the Dessert at the Back to The Bible website. And I read a daily Bible reading from Heartlight's website.

Starry Starry Night

I would like to dedicate this entry to Mrs. Happy Housewife. I love it when she takes a famous poem and couples it with a masterpiece.

In college one of my most memorable classes was humanities. The teacher was good and I learned world history that I hadn't been exposed to yet.

In that class, my teacher Mrs. Lurz, took an old hit song from the '70's and told how it was about a famous artist, Vincent Van Gogh. The song is Starry, Starry Night by Don Mclean. The beauty and expression of two incredibly talented people combined so we could enjoy.

What a way to memorize the Masterpieces of Van Gogh; Listening to a peaceful song beautifully sang as a guitar is strummed.

Through YouTube, Don Mclean's song, and through the artist's own hand the world will listen now, much more than ever, to what Van Gogh tried to say through his paintings.

Mrs. Happy Housewife inspired me. :) She's kind of like my neighbor blogger even though she lives hundreds of miles away! She's like me and has a love for art expression through poetry, painting, music, writing, etc. There is a bunch of junk on Youtube that I hate but it also has some good videos that are helping me learn about art.

R.C. Sproul, a greatly respected theologian of today has a favorite painting of Rembrandt. I have also claimed it as a favorite too. It is called Jeremiah Lamenting the Destruction of Jerusalem. I found it on a website called Artchives. You can view the chronological order of his paintings from 1630 to 1669 from this site.

Here is some background info about Rembrandt van Rijn. He lived from 1606-69. He was the fourth of six children. His father was a miller and his mother was a baker. He painted at least 300 painitings in his lifetime. Here's some more info about him.

This is a Youtube video you'll enjoy. Rembrandt stayed busy in his life. This video contains just his self-portraits. Hmmm, makes me wonder if he was vain. I don't know. But I'm glad that he painted himself alot so I can get a better grasp of his appearance.

I Can Learn From Paul the Apostle

Man was born for adversity.

So why do I whine so loud when it comes my way? Why do I not take on challenges with vigor and an adventurous attitude knowing I will grow?

In the devotional Streams in the Desert, Mrs. Charles Cowan talks about Paul's struggles. It seems to me Paul was dedicated to God enough that he didn't need to go through bunches of hardship. But of course, I'm not God and didn't know what Paul needed to make him all he can be for Christ.

In 2 Corinthians Paul talked of his difficulties in 5 parts:

1. We are troubled on every side,
yet not distressed;

2. We are troubled on every side,
yet not distressed;

3. Persecuted,
but not forsaken;

4. Persecuted,
but not forsaken;

5. Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus,
that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.

Tulsa's Buried Car: How To Remake A '57 Plymouth

New Zealand has an upper island and a lower island. Aukland is in the upper island. It has a population of 1.3 million and is by far the largest city in New Zealand.
