The doctor  had his TV on in his office when the news of the  military base shootings at Ft. Hood,

Texas came on.  The husband of one of his employees was stationed  there.

He called her into his office and as he  told her what had happened, she got a text message  from her husband saying, “I am okay.”
 Her  cell phone rang right after she read the message.  It was an ER nurse,” I’m the one who just sent you  a text, not your husband. I thought it would be  comforting but I was mistaken in doing so.
I am  sorry to tell you this, but your husband has been  shot 4 times and he is in surgery.”

The  soldier’s wife left Southern Clinic in Dothan , AL   and drove all night to Ft.

Hood.  When  she arrived, she found out her husband was out of  surgery and
would be OK.  She rushed  to his room and found that he already had visitors  there to comfort him.
 He was  just waking up and found his wife and the visitors  by his side. The nurse took this  picture.  


What?  No news  crews and cameras?  This is how people with  class respond and 
pay respect

to those in  uniform.  
I sent my  cousin in Fayetteville , N.C. (Retired from  Special Forces) that picture of
Geo. W. visiting  the wounded at   Ft. Hood .  I got this  reply:

What is even better is the  fact George W. Bush heard about Fort Hood, got in  his

car without any escort, apparently they did  not have time to react, and drove to Fort Hood.   He was stopped at the gate and the guard  could not believe who he had just stopped.   Bush only asks for directions to the  hospital then drove on.  The gate
guard  called that “The President is on Fort Hood and  driving to the  hospital.”  

The base  went bananas looking for Obama.  When they  found it was Bush, they immediately offered  escort.  Bush simply told them to shut  up and let him visit the wounded and the  dependents of the  dead.  

He stayed  at Fort Hood for over six hours, and was finally  asked to leave by a message from the White  House.  

Obama flew  in days later and held a “photo” session in a gym,  and  did not even

go to the  hospital.  

All this I  picked up from two soldiers here who happened to  be at Fort Hood when

it  happened.
  
This  Bush/Obama/Ft.Hood story is something that should  be sent to every voter in
the US .  Those who  wanted “change” certainly got  it.

Numbers 22:28 KJV  And the Lord opened the mouth of the ass, and she said unto Balaam, What have I done unto thee, that thou hast smitten me these three times?
God will use people and yes even animals to speak to you.  Which causes us to wonder, is He using someone else or an animal because we are not open to hear Him all the time?  Now we are not speaking of a person confirming a Word you are waiting on, or a prophet giving you a Word.
If you read the story of Balaam he was angry when the donkey spoke to him.  Being honest when we are angry it is hard to hear anyone, and that includes God.  There are times also when we just are not listening.
There are times when God will use others to give us a Word, or confirm His Word,  We though should be listening for His voice.  We should know the sound of His voice just as the mother in the store looks up when she here’s a child call Momma in the store, and she knows it is her child. Yes anyone can give us a Word from God.  BUT we should be listening for His Words every moment of our life.
God Bless

John 16:15
He shall take of Mine, and shall show it unto you.

 

There are times when all the promises and a doctrines of the Bible are of no avail, unless a gracious hand shall apply them to us. We are thirsty, but too faint to crawl to the water- brook. When a soldier is wounded in battle it is of little use for him to know that there are those at the hospital who can bind up his wounds, and medicines there to ease all the pains which he now suffers: what he needs is to be carried thither, and to have the remedies applied. It is thus with our souls, and to meet this need there is one, even the Spirit of truth, who takes of the things of Jesus, and applies them to us. Think not that Christ hath placed His joys on heavenly shelves that we may climb up to them for ourselves, but He draws near, and sheds His peace abroad in our hearts. O Christian, if thou art to-night labouring under deep distresses, thy Father does not give thee promises and then leave thee to draw them up from the Word like buckets from a well, but the promises He has written in the Word He will write anew on your heart. He will manifest His love to you, and by His blessed Spirit, dispel your cares and troubles. Be it known unto thee, O mourner, that it is God’s prerogative to wipe every tear from the eye of His people. The good Samaritan did not say, “Here is the wine, and here is the oil for you”; he actually poured in the oil and the wine. So Jesus not only gives you the sweet wine of the promise, but holds the golden chalice to your lips, and pours the life-blood into your mouth. The poor, sick, way-worn pilgrim is not merely strengthened to walk, but he is borne on eagles’ wings. Glorious gospel! which provides everything for the helpless, which draws nigh to us when we cannot reach after it-brings us grace before we seek for grace! Here is as much glory in the giving as in the gift. Happy people who have the Holy Ghost to bring Jesus to them.
