Fred, Dorothy and families would like to thank friends and family for their acts of kindness, phone calls, visits, food, donation cards and more when their brother Jim Armstrong passed away Novemeber 11, at the Barrie Hospital after a long battle with cancer. Jim was very thankful for all the care he received while he lived at home in Manitowaning for the last year and a half. Thank you.

I wish to thank everyone for their cards, calls and words of concern to us in the loss of my sister. Manitoulin was her second home. We miss her.

IN MEMORY

LEACH–In loving memory of David Wayne Leach (Whitey and G.D.), October 23, 1943 to January 8, 2016.

It’s still like a bad dream since you passed that day.

Missing you is the hardest part, it never goes away.

I thank God for our children and good friends.

They are always near by, by phone or by car they are not very far.

They try to keep me busy, like you were all the time, and to occupy my mind.

I must go on without you, but you’ll never be forgotten

Because I know you are wth me all the time.

We love you always. Rest in Peace.

All our love,

Tammy, Stacey, Wayne, Donald, Lorne, Craig, Kathy, their husbands and wives, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and wife Esther. Love always.

SMITH–In memory of a dear dad, John R. Smith, July 12, 1919 – January 21, 1996.

If I could write a story

It would be the greatest ever told

Of a kind and loving father

Who had a heart of gold.

If I could write a million pages

But still be unable to say, just how

Much I love and miss him

Every single day.

I will remember all he taught me,

I’m hurt but won’t be sad

Because he’ll send me down the answers

And he’ll always be MY DAD.

Forever loved and missed by your daughter Marilyn

ROBINSON–In memory of Ruth Laurene Robinson, August 31, 1929 to January 23, 2006.

A million times I’ve needed you,

A million times I’ve cried.

If love could have saved you,

You never would have died.

Things we feel most deeply

Are the hardest things to say.

My dearest one I loved you

In a very special way.

If I could have one lifetime wish,

One dream that could come true,

I’d pray to God with all my heart

For yesterday and you.

Carl and family

RUSSELL–In loving memory of Frederick Leland Russell, January 27, 1923 to January 19, 2007.

WW 2 Veteran

Lincoln Welland Regiment

He went away without farewell,

He said goodbye to none.

But Heaven’s gate was open wide

And a loving voice said “Come.”

Beside his grave we often stand.

Our hearts are tired and sore.

But through the gloom

There come the words:

“Not dead, just gone before.”

Always in our hearts, Beulah Russell and family

RUSSELL–In loving memory of Frederick Leland Russell, January 27, 1923 to January 19, 2007.

Time speeds on, ten years have passed

Since death its gloom, its shadow cast

Within our home, where all seemed bright,

And took from us a shining light.

We miss that light, and ever will,

His vacant place there is none to fill.

Down here we mourn, but not in vain,

For up in heaven we will meet again.

Karlie is now 12 and dad would be so proud of her

and his other great-grandchildren

Loved and missed by Barbara and Keith Flaherty and family

SPIRITUALITY

MAT.6:33: “Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and his righteousness and these things (prosperity, peace, health happiness) shall be added unto you.” The word righteousness simply means living right or living in obedience to God’s word. God offers all kinds of blessings, but only those who make it their priority to seek God’s Kingdom and righteousness will receive them. This time of year we hear a lot of well wishes; joy to the world, peace on earth, happy new year, and many people make new year resolutions and I wish everyone all the blessings that God has available for him or her. But in order to receive God’s blessings a person has to first make up his mind that he is going to find out what the will of God is, EPH. 5:17 and is going to do it. So if you are going to make a new years resolution, let it be that you are going to do the will of God. HEBR.10:36 says: “that after doing the will of God you may receive the promise.” In Mat.7:21 Jesus says: “not every one who calls me Lord, Lord, will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only those who do the will of my father in heaven.” IS.1:19 says:” if you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land (receive blessing).” DEUT.28:1-15: “if you diligently obey my commandments (all ten) all these blessings will come upon you, etc” what I am saying is that all God’s blessings, including health (mental, emotional, physical and spiritual) joy, peace, happiness and prosperity are available for everyone. But only those who obey God, keep his commandments and do God’s will, will receive them. On the other hand God punishes sin (sin is disobeying God’s commandments or not doing his will). In Noah’s Days God punished sin with the flood, in Lot’s Days God punished Sodom and Gomorrah with destruction by fire. EPH.5:6 says: “Because of their sins the wrath of God comes on the children of disobedience.” DEUT.28:15 says: If you will not obey Yahweh your God and are not careful to do all his commandments, all these curses shall come upon you, etc.” In REV.16 the seven bowls of God’s wrath are poured out on sinners. Now Yahweh God is the same today he loves you, but has to be true to his word and punish sin. DEUT.30:19 says: “I call heaven and earth as witnesses that I have set before you life and death blessings and curses, therefore choose life that both you and your children may live (receive the blessings)”. Whether you receive the blessings or curses is a choice and only you can make that choice By choosing to obey God’s commandments and instructions you choose life and blessings and by choosing to disobey God’s commandments and instructions, you choose death and the curses. Like Adam and Eve who could choose between the tree of life and the tree of knowledge of good and evil you can choose, but once a choice is made you do not have any control over the results. When you step on the gas pedal the car speeds up, when you step on the brake the car slows down or stops. Every choice has a consequence. Think before you act, meditate on God’s word and choose to obey it, and blessings will be the result. May God bless you, sincerely in Christ, Hank Reckman, Prophet of Manitoulin, search for truth Biblical Ministries, Box 210 M’Chigeeng, Ontario P0P 1G0
