Congratulations to Barry Ray

This is a celebration of our great boss man Barry Ray and his lovely wife they have been pride owners of this great facility Renaissance at Rome, Georgia. They are celebration their ten year annivarrs here at Renaissance and we are all celebration this with them’ we do not consider Barry as a boss man we consider him as a close friend. We have learned to love and admire what he does for us elderly occupants at Renaissance.

I remember the time that he took over ownership and I have had a good relationship with him for these ten years. I have not met his lovely wife but I know that she is a lovely lady. I have met a couple of their children on the email computer.

In knowing Barry I know that he is a leader of his family as he is a leader for us. I too know that the Ray family is all born again Christians.

Hello friend have you made up you mind which one of these nitwits you are going to vote for president. If you want my option I endorsed Donald Trump the first day that he announced that he was running for president, I wrote email to you people that I compared him to General George Patton and Harry Truman and he has lived yup to his canvassing, he has proved that he is hard tuff as general Patton and Truman, He is the kind of man I want lead me and my America.

I believe that there will be a lot of people will change their minds as entering into the voting booth, I believe that Christian people have prayed about this election.

I believe that Donald is a true American and will try hard to make America great again. I know that he will make some mistakes because there is no man has been perfect but Jesus Christ.

I feel so sorry for Hilary I pray that she will accept her highly defeat in a Christian attitude she so wanted to be so noted for something. I ask all my good friends will vote for Donald Trump.

nks Friends

Dear friends do you know my savior Jesus Christ, he is the greatest friend you will ever know. Have you been to the cross where he was crucified, where he died for all your sins? Do you walk with him ever day, do you carry his cross with you ever day. If you perform these duties you are on your road to go to heaven. I am performing these duties the very best I can, but in but in my unfaithful faith I fall short in his desire for me.

I pray that some day I will be perfect then my Lord will call me home to live with him in heaven. Then I will see my wonderful wife and the rest of my family has already gone to heaven.

Friends the gospels will teach you how to perform all these manigificent duties. It is all in the HOLY BIBLE. I am bragging about where I am in life, I owe it all Jesus. Thanks dear Jesus for what you did for me while on the cross.

This little story of table number –2 – of the dinning room in Renaissance. We call our selves the stooges. Melvin Bruce, Sam Freeman and I John Davidson, we have shared our table for over six years and we have fell in love with each other and learned each other’s ways. I do not know why we chose this name because we are sure not funny but we do try to put a little love and joy in our family time together. We had vagrancy on our table after Dewitt transferred to the Harbor.  We wanted to find some Christian friend to replace this vagrancy.

That was about that Tom Tate lost his beautiful wonderful wife Lucille went to live with her Lord in heaven. Sam Freeman knew Tom a long time before they came here to live. Sam approached Tom and asks him if he would like to come join us on our table. He explained to Tom that He and John was very death and we could not hear it thunder and Melvin was so blessed that he could hear you drop a pin on the floor but he has a low ken voice you can not hear and understand what he is saying he has a lot of wit if you could   hear him and understand him. Melvin really has a way with the women nearly ever one comes bye they whisper something in his ear, I lean across the table to try to hear what is said. Sam sates in the corner and ever time a pretty lady comes bye and he jumps and grabs them, I sat in the corner and observe all these shanghais going on and laugh at them.

Tom replied to Sam and said it sounds to me that you all are a bunch of nitwits, but I love it I will feel to be honored to share your table I too am a little nitwit at heart. I spent several weeks of checking Tom out to see if he would fall into our style of behavior and he passed the test with fling colors. I noticed that he can raise his voice lauded enough to hear him.

I also noticed that Tom is falling in the category with Melvin and Sam of loving the pretty ladies. In another year I may be trying to find three people to come sit on my table.

In a serious note we all four are born again Christians, we try to share a little love and joy to our wonderful family.

Corn bread

My family thinks that I have an ark of making good corn bread and I thank that I do make a good cake of bread and my son asked me if I would make an recipe explaining just how I do it, so here it goes.

First select a 9-inch skillet and make sure it is free of left over stuck bread I try to not wash it and just try to clean it with paper towels.  I then cover the skillet bottom of cooking oil and insert the skillet in to the hot heated oven that has been set between 35 and 40 degree. I really do not measure any of the ingredients.

Select a mixing bowl and put in about 3 small cups of self-rising corn meal. Insert about a tablespoon of salt. Insert about ½ cup of cooking oil. Insert 2 hen eggs and mixed it good and insert enough butter mild until it pours easily into the hot skillet from the oven.

Cooking time some where from ¾ hour too one hour. Check it at the ¾ hour and it probably will be start to tan in the edges stay pretty close and watch it until it is as brown as you want it.

I believe that I am going to go bake. me a cake of corn bread.

Poor Hilary

She seams to be a lost person in bitter weeds she does not know where she is in America/ She made a speech this afternoon and she sounded so weak and I noticed that when she tried to walk up right she walked she was about to fall again. I do not believe that she had pneumonia, I do not know what her ailment is but I believe it is more serious then a pneumonia.

When she was speaking she sounded like she was canvassing for Donald Trump she was telling about all the Donald your chips and go home and take care of your over sexes husband.

Hilary, God loves you and so do I. ---John Davidson                                       stands for.

Poor Hilary she wants to be recognize for something good for publicity, but her history tells us something different, Hilary why don’t you just cash in 
                                  Prayer July 20,2004                                    

My God My Heavenly Father I kneel before you this morning with a humble heart. I come to you to tell you that I love you and I praise your name, you are my God, my savior, and my redeemer. You are the great creator of Heaven and earth and every thing that lives and dwells within it.

I thank you dear God for letting me be a child of yours. I thank you for letting me call you my heavenly father. Help me to obediently to your ever wish and command, just as I tried to be obedient to my earthly father. Forgive me dear God when I failed you and disobeyed you as I did with my earthly father. I am very sorry for my disobedience to both of my fathers. I ask for your forgiveness for all my sins.

I want to thank you dear God for my many blessings. You have been so good for blessing me in so many ways that I can’t count them all. I thank you for a wonderful beautiful family. Having a wonderful family is what makes living on earth worth - while. I thank you for health that I feel good, do not suffer but very little pain or discomfort. I sometime thank that I am a miracle child. I thank you for miracles that you perform here on earth.

I want to pray for many of my friends that are less fortunately then my self. There are many that have serious illiness and diseases and severe pain. I pray dear God if you are willing, I ask you to heal them and releave them of all their pain. I pray for the people that are lost that do not know you as their Lord and savior. I ask you to lead me and guide me in your light, and help me to resist all temptation and sin. Teach me to be more like you as I walk the rough path here on earth. Teach me to minister to loss souls that I come in contact with. Teach me to love every one as you have commanded me to do. Dear God you know that I do love all man - kind as I love, as I love myself. You know dear God that I love people that may despised me, or persecute me, or ignore me, or say evil things about me. I pray daily for these people. I know dear Jesus that you are walking right along beside of me, when some one ignores me or mistreat me. I just turn to you Jesus, and  I wink to you and say that we will have to pray for them.

I pray for all our soldiers that you will protect them, as they offend   our nation and for us from all evil and corruption. I pray for our official leaders in all categories in federal, county, and city. I pray especially for our city of Goodwater. Our little town has just steadily gone down, and deteriorated over the several years. It seams that our present officials are not qualified and does not have the expertise to perform their duties as many Christian people in our town believe it should be performed. I pray that all Christian people will pray over this dilemma.

I pray for church. I pray for all of our ministry programs within our church and also for our ministry programs outside of the church. I pray for our church family dear God, we are so close and love each other so very much. I pray for Bro. Joe, and Sherry and their son Steven   they are such a blessing to our church.

I offer this prayer in the name of my savior Jesus Christ.  AMEN

Prayer tonight                       Sept 19 2016

Here I go again complaining about little description affairs in my blessed life. I am scheduled to have a new battery replaced on my pace maker this will be my fifth battery to be replaced I had my pace maker installed back in the year of 1992. No wonder God has allowed our doctors to become vessel for healing body parts.

I have had three delayed schedules of this procedure I cannot understand why this all occurred, but my bible tells me that every thing has a purpose; I just prayed to my savior that I will accept it for being a good reason. I am not dreading the procedure in fact I guess I am looking forward for it. I know that the lord will be laying beside me and holding my hand.

What an awesome Lord we have that stays beside of us when we need him to lift us up. Thank you God for our good doctors that loves us and an extra mile to help us. I guess that my life has been so wonderful blessed to live a ripe old age of 94 years old.

November 8th 2016

The election on November 8th may be the greatest election that America has ever experienced, It may be the end of time for America, it depends on the person you vote for I highly endorse Donald Trump to be our president for four years.

I do not believe that and a born again Christian could possibly vote for Hilary Clinton for any government position and especially for president. Donald Trump has been preaching and telling America how corrupts and crocked.

I suggest that everyone that votes for Hilary wear black clothing and all that votes for Donald wear RED clothing to stand out. Now at my age I am going to sit down and scratch my head and laugh at you poor people will have to contend with the humble bubble affairs. I have my own president and his name is Jesus Christ.

This is about the way I feel about all the affairs because I cannot do any thing about the horrible affairs of America, but Icon pray for family’s friends and neighbors and America.   John Davidson


                         AFFAIRS OF OUR NATION

                                                                                 August 19,2008

Dear God, I have awaken up early this morning feeling a little depressed, I had a restless night, I did not have any pain or discomfort, I just kept waking up every few hours. I guess I was depressed about our nation; I am scared to death about our nation it is in the worse shape since the 1930’s in the great depression years. I am 86 years old and I remember the depression very vividly.  It is not just only the economy it is many other problems that we need your helping hand to lead us and guide us to fix.

I am trying to write a story about the great depression for the 1930’s and it is still very imbedded in my mind. I believe that I am a better person for having to have gone thru it, it was extremely hard but it helped us to realize that life is not a bed of roses. It made us realize that money doesn’t grow on trees. It made us to be thankful to God for food and shelter. It helped us to love family and neighbors and it helped us to seek our savior Jesus Christ our redeemer.

I pray that America will never have to endure another depression as we had in the 1930’s, but it could happen again. So I ask you to pray that God will come to our rescue and heal our land. These are scary times in our nation, in 46 more days we will vote for a nation leader and we need to pray earnestly that God will lead us and guide us to choose the one that will serve America according to the will of God.

It may be that we have swayed away from Gods will for us that he is knocking us down to our knees. As we look over all the terrible things that are happening all over the world makes you wonder, what is God up to, and he is in control of every thing in heaven and earth.

I personally do not believe that the American people are strong enough to endure a depression as we did in the 30’s, so may I ask you to pray that God will intervene and heal our land. It may be that our lord are trying to attract our attention and telling us to shape up and repent of our sins.

Heavenly Father thanks you for the privilege that you let me talk to you thru my writing, it always give me much satisfaction to talk with you and express my thoughts to you. I feel so wonderfully bless that I can see well enough to write and can hear well enough that I can carry on an intelligent conversation. Thanks dear God for everything especially my family. I sometime enjoy sharing my scribbling with others I pray that I do not offend anyone by sending them to you.          AMEN and  AMEN

that we would have to stay in the hospital while they treated her, because they would feed the medicine intravenous. I tried to talk to Helen at best I could and explain to her what we were trying to do, without going in too much details. Dr. Kelly explained to us that this treatment at the hospital would not coat us that this would be considered research. He further ask for our permission to take some of the specimen and implant it into a monkey and see if they grew and they could study the disease, we gave them permission to do that. I requested that they would keep me informed on all the progress. They never did give me a progress report and about one year I called Dr. Kelly about why that I had never heard from them. He stated that the lab should have kept me informed. He then wrote me a letter stating that there had not been any thing to report, so I have not contacted them since that time. We had expected some immediate change in Helen’s condition and after a couple weeks and Helens skin was getting irritated and sore where they has the needles were inserted, so I talked with Dr. Kelley and I told him that we had not noticed any improvement on her and I wanted to discontinue the treatment and he agreed with me.

Around latter part of march or April of 1983 they discharged Helen, and the surgery the treatment and stay in the hospital had really took its toll on Helen’s health appearance and condition. The doctors and my children told me that I would have to put Helen into a nursing home that I could not take care of her at home; I could not accept that suggestion and I rejected and with their persistence, I finally agreed.                 At from that point she steadily deteriated almost daily. I put her in the Goodwater nursing home and I hired Jessie Worrell to sit with her thru the day at the nursing home, I was still working at Sterling Lumber and Supply Company, and I guess I thought that I had a pretty responsible job.

                  Increment number- (2)

I would usually go to the nursing home at noontime to check on her, even thou Jessie was staying with her. I would go to the nursing home as soon that I left work and stayed with her until I put her to bed. I would get up every morning and go to the nursing home and get her up and give her bath and feed her breakfast and go to work. I left her in the nursing home for about a month and I decided that this was going to kill me, so I decided that I was going to take her home. The children thought that I was making a mistake but I told them that I was going to get help to stay with her and help me with her. I told them that I could afford to do that.

I talked with Jessie Worrell and she told me a couple of good people that I could get to help me. I contacted Joshalean McElrath and Nellie Thornton and they both agreed to help me. They were the most wonderful three people that I have ever had the privilege and experience to know. They treated my wife as though she was a Queen, and by the way she was my Queen. The all three stayed with us until Helen passed away March 23, 1985. Josglean stayed on with me until her health got so bad that she had to quit around in the year of 2002.

 Back to the year of 1983 that I received a telephone call from a neighbor of my brother’s in Ozark and she stated to me that my oldest brother had had a massy heart attack and was dead. I could not accept that as being true and I insisted on talking to Nell, his wife and she did get on the phone and told me that it was true; it was so hard for me to accept the news. Helen’s illiness had progressed to such a case that she hardly knew was going on and could not help me and I was about ready to get off my rocker. I finally calmed down and prepared to go to Ozark to his family’s home. My brother had just been visiting us the Sunday before in Goodwater and my Mother had gone home with them to spend a few days, so she was there when he passed away. My brother had mentioned to me that Sunday that his legs were hurting him pretty bad and I told him that sound like poor circulation and I suggest that he should go to a doctor and have a check-up, and he indicated that he would do that. We spent a couple days in Ozark visiting the family and attending the funeral. On the second night I received a call from Rick my oldest son and informed me that they were unable to attend the funeral because his wife Linda had miscarriage, I could tell that was up-setting Helen but she could not all understand what was going up and that felt heavy on my mind. Helen sat around all the time that we were there and starred into space not really understanding what was going on.

It was in the year of 1983 that Charles F. Thomas, my boss and partner of Sterling Lumber And Supply Company, developed blockage of arteries and required bypass surgery and while he was home recouping from surgery and we suffered a big fire of our fabrication plant. I called him at home and told him that there is nothing that he could do and for him to just stay at home that I could handle everything. This was a very expensive fire around half million-dollar loss. It was very fortunate that we had adequate insurance to cover the most of the loss. We had several large Govt.  Contract orders on the books and were delinquent on many of the contracts and it require a lot of negating with the Govt. to keep them for fine us or canceling our contracts.

It was in latter part of 1983 or 1984 that my sister Hazel and her husband came from Florida to come help me take care of Helen. On one Sunday evening my sister took my Mother to go for a ride and go to Alexander City to buy a watermelon and on their return back to Goodwater they met a gang of motorcycles speed daemons passing cars on her side of the highway and she had to leave the road from killing them hitting them head on. My sister and my mother suffered multiple fractures and broken bones. There were several days that they were not expected to live. I remember one night while they were in the Sylacauga hospital they called me that night and told me if I could come to the hospital because they did not think that my mother would live thru the night. I ask Nellie Thornton if she would stay late that night with Helen and she stayed on until I went to the hospital. When I arrived at the hospital and they told me that they did not know what happened but my Mother had started reviving and was much improved. My mother finally healed enough to leave the hospitals and lived to the year of 1988.
