Hi Ammi

When I was younger my dad owned a truckstop....I worked in the afternoons
and the nite man was always asleep upstairs in one of the bunks we provided for truckdrivers....It was impossible to get him up to take his shift at midnight....I had to always pour cold water on him to get him up.
Now...talk about irritation....cold water pored in the fly of your shorts will do it..... but truth is....someone has to pour cold water.... if the watchman is asleep.

I liked the analogy you used of pushing buttons...

{{{Okay.... I suppose i'm going to push some buttons here.... but perhaps they are buttons that need pushing.}}}

In this world, nearly everything uses power and needs a button pushed in order for it to work....whether it be an elevator or...say the power tools I use on the job.....those tools won't operate unless the operator pushes a button....I think the only button we are willing to push without a whole lot of prompting is the snooze button on the alarm clock.....we can push that one in our sleep.

As I read your post....I was reminded of the time when Jesus was attempting to get a little participation there in the garden....His boys seemed to be willing enough.....they were just too sleepy.

I want you to know...I appreciate your commitment to God's Purpose....for being who you are...doing what you are doing...we need you.....I was into your website last night....really productive...Teach us Ammi...push buttons as the Lord leads.... you may even have to douse our drawers with cold water every now and then.....Now....that's called tweaking focus.

loving in the Christ Light.....chaz.
