I cain’t believe its been a year today since I wrote my first Post ? I have enjoyed and appreciate all my good friends I have made over the year ! I appreciate your kind thoughts and respect with a lot of Gods Love thrown my way ? I don’t always ” Feel as Good as I Look ”  but my daily blog reading usually perks me up for the day ?   You see I’ve have got somebody in my life that loves me for who I am ? Thats makes me feel special according to His word !

He does not lead me year by year,

     Nor even day by day .

But step by step my path unfolds,

     My Lord directs my way .

Tomorrows plans I do not know,

     I only know this minute .

But He will say, “This is the way,

     By faith now walk ye in it. “

And I am glad that it is so,

     Today’s enough to bear,

And when tomorrow comes,

            His Grace

     Shall far exceed its care .

What need to worry then, or fret ?

     The God who gave His Son

Holds all my moments in His Hand

     And gives them one by one !

“Just give me one day at a time Sweet Jesus thats all I ‘m asking for “

  is my prayer each day ?

Blessings to all and I look forward to another year of good reading.

    Bro. Ron this is one of the best blog anniversary post I’ve ever read! I’m so thankful to have had the opportunity to “inter-meet” you and I’m looking forward to the day when we are eye-to eye whether it’s in this life or the life to come. I pray God will continue to bless you and us through you in the coming year. 😉

    Terry said,

    Gee whiz amazing grace man.
    I finally get a chance to come here and thank you for praying for Dad Golden and here I find I have missed out on the anniversary party.
    I have been way late the lest few months on people’s birthdays and anniversaries…
    Oh well only thing to do is steal your post again and put it on mine and let the whole world know that you are just a baby blogger still…twelve months old!!…..Love Terry

    rrbj said,

    Hi Vicki,

    Thanks for dropping by my blog and I visit your blog and read a good bit . You have an encouraging blog ! I usually click on your blog name over at Amy Cloud’s { Byway Blessings. } . iF its ok I’ll add you to my blogroll ? I don’t comment as much as I would like to cause the one finger I type with is located on my right arm and my right elbow cain’t make up its mind if it wants to grow an extra elbow or not ? Stays sore all the time from arthuritis complications ?

    Blessings to you and I pray your can come thru your illinesses smiling and praising God.

  23. 23

    rrbj said,

    Hi Terry,

    I remember when my Dad accepted Jesus into his heart just 2 weeks before he died and that is the least I can do for Dad Golden ?

    Yep I am just a baby blogger 1 year old but I have been reading blogs for nearly 2 years ? I first started reading my Pastor’s blog and using His blogroll ! { Heavenly Heartburn } . He’s been very busy since before christmas and hadn’t gotten back into the swing yet ! We have a lot of activities going on in our church .

    Its ok to steal a post now and then but if it gets out of hand I’l just call Judge Judy cause She has still got you on Her investigation list ?
    Tell Mom and Dad Golden I said hello ?


  24. 24

    Terry said,

    Yes I will tell Mom and Dad hello amazing grace man, but you may as well forget about Judge Judy. She tried to get over the border and they flat right told her to get lost!
    She doesn’t even have a psssport!!
    Ha!! …Terry

    Hi Grandpaw

    Happy 1st Blogging Anniversary!

    My apologies that you were unable to comment on my blog.
    I’ll change it for it to accept comments from everyone.
    It’s so thoughtful of you =)
    Thank you.

  27. 27

    hey Ron, I am back, I have missed blogging so much and ur comments, encouragement, I like you seem to get a lift from keeping up with what is going on with all my friends in the blogosphere!! God Bless!!!

  28. 28

    rrbj said,

    Morning Terry,

    You had best be aware of Judge Judy cause she is getting an official Judgeship for all of Canada ! She said that you wasn’t the only one she might get after ! She mentioned something about Gracey starting a blog and not keeping up the posting because it disappointed Her readers? She said that the main reason She has not done you in is cause you bless so many people with Birthday and Anniversary Wishes ?

    You’ll have to explain about Bro. Gordon Clouds pictures appearing on my blog ! Could have something to do with his Preaching helps to keep the Devil away !

    Hello Mrs. Audrey,

    Hi Dana,

    I’m glad you got your site up and running again . I don’t posts to many posts but I’m going to try and post more ? My right elbow gives me trouble just about everyday and my right hand index finger gets wore out ?

    Blessings to you and your family .

  32. 32

    rrbj said,

    Hi Donna,

    I read about your surgery on another blog and allready praying that everything will be allright ! I don’t comment as much as I would like to either. It depends on how my right arm acts when I get up every morning .

    Thanks for dropping by , I finnally got around to putting the right url on my blogroll !


  33. 33

    I too have Him in my life and He lifts me up when I am down, He is always walking beside me, I can see things so clearly when I am with Him, it is when I stray that things don’t seem to line up the way they should. God Bless you Ron, you are in my prayers today, I cherish your friendship!!!

  34. 34

    rrbj said,

    Hi Dana,

    Thanks for stopping by , I had been worrying and thinking and hoping that nothing else had happened in your family ? I thought about emailing you a couple of times . I’m glad things are trying to get back to normal .

    Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and for your prayers for Daniel. Very appreciated!


  36. 36

    rrbj said,

    Hi Robin,

    It is my pleasure to pray for Daniel. One of my pet peeves is children ! It would be ok with me to have all the pain that Daniel has to go thru ! I can’t stand to see children to have hurts and can not do anything ! Praying for Daniel and his family !

    Vicki said,

    hello Ron,

    You are such a kind, sweet soul, and I’m glad the Lord let our blog paths cross. Hope you are taking good care of that ol’ arthritis this week. Indeed, it can make for some painful typing. Thank you for your encouraging remarks about my little health trials…I know the Lord will take good care of me. I’ll pray for you, too, my friend, and just wanted you to know that your words always lift my spirits. Thank you so much!

    In His grace & love,

    rrbj said,

    Hi Janice,

    Been thinking about you and hoping you staying warm ? Forgive me for not checking up sooner on one of my adopted kids . I just ain’t been totally up to par these last few days ! Sometime silence is good but I know it can be bad also but when I’m silent and quiet I’m always being good . HaHa .

    Blessings to you and Hubby.

    I am so happy for you on the one year hurdle. I know I will continue to read and enjoy your company. God bless you, Bro. Ron! I look forward to many years to come.

    I hope all went well with Cole. We have been praying for Him. Clay is especially concerned. If you talk to him would you tell him Clay asked about him. I know Clay would appreciate it.

    Thanks and Blessings to you.

  42. 42

    rrbj said,

    Hi Amy,

    Thanks for the good words, but I hope I’ll be around for a long time too. Missed you Sunday , but Bro. Gordon told me Clay was sick .

    Everything went ok with surgery but monday evening his incision opened up after they removed his stiches so he could go home. Then it started running fluids and they keep him overnight ! You could actually see inside of him . They didn’t do anything to him but pack the incision and sent him home today . Other than that He is doing fairly good !

    Terry said,

    Dear Amazing-grace man..
    I have been thinking about you the last few days and praying that your arthritis isn’t as bad as it was.
    Ron did you ever try Likota” on it?
    Bernie has had a year worth of pain that he never told me about but when I found out about it, I bought him some Likota and ii really helped him.
    It is expensive but once in a while this mean old Canadian lady buys him a little something…with HIS money…Love Terry

    Ps The almost 37 years of “pain” that he has had? Well there just ain’t no cure for that one!!

  44. 44

    rrbj said,

    Hi Terry,

    Glad you stopped by. I have not even heard of Likota . I have been doing a little better the last couple of days since the weather warmed up some . My right elbow is still sore but my knee joint is feeling much better !

    Blessings to you and Bernie. and Mom and Dad Golden.

  45. 45

    Terry said,

    Dear amazing grace man.
    Do you have a Costco near you? They sell it in there.
    The drug stores sell it too but it is more expensive. It comes in a bottle that is a roll on bottle like under arum deodorant and it is real easy to roll on . I think it would do your elbow a world of good
    Why not try it?….Love Terry

    Google it to get the information, eh?

  46. 46

    rrbj said,

    Hi Terry,

    Thanks for the info. We don’t have Costco down here that I know of . I will just have to go to bed and let the Lord bless me with a good day the next day ! I appreciate your prayers and your thoughts.

    PS. I’ll just continue to be an old broke down old man that is overly grateful that the Lord allows me another day !

  47. 47

    Terry said,

    Dear amazing grace man…You are NOT a broken down old man at all and we all need you for more than just another day!

    Now don’t get too used to these compliments either because once it warms up here in Ontario, my mean streak will be coming back.
    I am just being nice to you because I am hoping you will send some warm weather our way!!!!…Terry

  48. 48

    rrbj said,

    Hi Terry,

    Thanks for visiting and them good compliments. If you gona get meaner then I hope ya’ll have more cold and snowey weather. We are having pretty weather down here , but a little cool in late afternoon but I’m still enjoying as much as I can!

    Hi Amrita,

    Thanks for stopping by. I wouldn’t let Terry talk you into some trouble. If she keeps on being a theif then the checks better start rolling in cause I’m broke !

    rrbj said,

    Hi Terry,

    Don’t you know if you teach somebody everything you know sooner or later it’ll lead to destruction ! Just remember you had better behave or you’ll get Judge Judy upset again !

    BTW— We have had gorgious weather the last 4 days. Eat your heart out !

    Thanks so much for your ongoing prayers for Daniel and his family. This is a difficult time for the whole family. Daniel’s grandmother is very ill right now too. Prayers are greatly appreciated!

    Hello Robin,

    I thank you for keeping us informed about Daniel’s condition . He has made so much improvement and I pray God will continue to hold his hand and bless Him and His grandmother !
