Wild Gray Goose

Celtic tradition identifies the Holy Spirit as a Wild Goose. He is the wings of a Wild God best followed by the wildest of men. I'm gray. I'm wild. Like He, I am not always predictable, rational, or safe. I believe my full life and my still maturing years of Walking With God offer both heart and substance for younger lads to consider. Now with 4th stage prostate cancer, following the Wild Goose has a different pace and perspective worth reflecting on...and sharing.

Location: Full Time RV, mostly near Temecula, California, United States

I'm a young fella not far from 73 who's made it to the far and frayed edges of the adventures I‘ve been hankering for since boyhood. The age thing and my pursuits are relevant since I now have advanced 4th stage cancer, moved from unsuccessful chemo treatment to oral med...and they seem to be working. Now, after selling the ranch, my beautiful life-mate of 48 years and I live and travel in an fifth wheel RV we call our "covered wagon". The new and rich development of 2012 is our purchase of ranch in the marvelous plateau above GRAND JUNCTION at the head of the Colorado National Monument where my young family with six children run a whole-family therapy ranch, DEEP RIVERS FAMILY RANCH.

I am wondering

I've been wondering what thoughts are stirring down there, Gary, that will reward me for the effort to do the BLOG dialog. I'm a bit out of currency for spending much personal and spiritual time on the Web--or even in email dialogs with friends--because of a busy life. Will your thoughts slow me down and build me up, will they be easily forgotten like the taste of a mint after a big meal (good, but never the topic of discussion), will they yank my tether strong enough I will see God's hand at the other end? Or will this be fun stuff, good stuff, but nothing that will upgrade my Walk with God or that will channel my energies or sharpen my intentions in serving God, family, and mankind?

I have prayed for this day for you. Less is truly more. Will generations of youth now be fathered because Gary and Carolyn sold the ranch and wrote the book? Hope so. Will Gary mentor those of us who struggle as parents in wisdom borne of trench warfare? Hope so. We'll see.

I do know that my friend and his bride are lighter by one ranch, and likely better prepared for battle. One less BIG worry, one less thing holding back the battle... the enemy is at the gates, but the gates have moved. Put the forwarding address on the next load in the catapult.

Here, brother, have my blog sword. Slice and dice'm.

More perspective from Blood N Fire ... 2003 an historic bldg in Atlanta's heart just a block from Sweet Auburn and in the King neighborhood purchased at the Father's word to be a healing center in a state where 1 in 3 has no insurance and where in 2003 declining revenues resulted in the removal of about 25,000 low-income kids from the insurance roles, not to mention all the low income mothers-with-child to whom the state also bid adieu from Medicaid ... (can it be any clearer how ineffective science can be - consider my dissertation and all that other data on the enormous cost benefits from providing perinatal care) ... so there is this building - set aside at the Father's word but eventually procured with methods of marketing instead of faith ... and in the ensuing battle lost ... sold to preserve the sanctuary homestead in these crumbling warehouses where the 300 homeless have a home...and so it was, that in the kingdom of this world in 2003, ownsership passed to an Iranian Muslim.

And in the loss, there appeared to be a death of dreams and vision, when in reality, powerful seeds of repentance and forgiveness have been unleased. These in turn call forth faith in the greater Kingdom and the truth of resurrection power. So it is that at the closing for the sale, BNF people speak words of Kingdom declaration to the new owner....."This is God's building and He has set it aside for a health center." The Iranian Muslim replies, "That is what I have planned for the building ... a health clinic and a pharmacy." BNF, "How wonderful ... but we must tell you God wants the health center for His own."

Months pass ... BNF folk continue to call the Muslim Iranian every week or month and remind him that the God of mercy for the poor, the fatherless, the abandoned, the homeless, the broken in heart and body has laid claim to the building for HIS health center ... this week, during the family gathering conference, resurrection power multiplies in hearts joined by love ... prayers for the kingdom to come with land and buildings gush forth in joy ... property to be purchased with the currency of faith ... and a call comes from the Muslim Iranian asking for a meeting with BNF people to see what they are about ... and then from the BNF family's heart, a wellspring of prayer for the heart and the soul of the Muslim Iranian and the souls of all those to whom his is joined ... and the meeting is wonderful and the flames of faith that work by love rise higher and hotter still ... and this Saturday on the last day of the family gathering conference, the BNF men have their first-ever-in-14-years men's breakfast at a local diner that the owner says can no longer teeter on the brink but will have to close that day and this too births prayers of faith in the Father's provision for this person ... and at this breakfast there are only 2 people not from BNF in the diner, and one of them is the Iranian Muslim, and the BNF men tell him, "You know, don't you, that the building is the Lord's for a health center," and he answers good naturedly, "I know, I know....."

And so on the 32nd anniversary of the day of my new birth in Christ, as the past season ends and the new page is turned, I reflect and remember. I weep for great, great joy that my Father has not forgotten me as He gathered the BNF family for the new season, that I have been welcomed back with love and still have a place at the table. I understand more why the Father took me from here in 1997 for what has proved to be a long season of watching Him form the Body in all our territories with sons and daughters He has brought from the nations to be joined with us. I have watched Him give his Body in this process a strength and completeness it has never known before ... it now spans all the oceans and the mountains and the deserts of this world ... and the joining of the nations and the tribes in territortial bodies is birthing the white hot passionate love of Jesus for the people of the nations that it is our destiny to bring forth out from the center of Father's heart .....not through anything of man, but only by the power of the Holy Spirit.

"And so little flock, this Kingdom for which you have panted like the Colorado deer racing and bounding and darting for the snow-cold-clear mountain stream, is a gift you will surely see appearing among you now. The crumbled concrete and the reflected light from the capitol's gold dome rising over you ... the failures of the past and the weakness of today are the perfect frame for the image of my Son brought forth in you by the past season's fires. As many of the warehouse buildings have fallen since your beginning, I have been building structures which will never come down. So like a Polaroid picture that at first is black and then before your very eyes brings forth the image created by the Light, it is now my good pleasure to unlease the power of the resurrection in and through you so that before your very eyes, you will see My Kingdom appear in your midst in every place in which you dwell. In this season, my dear children, we will together share great joy."

Hot News From The Automotive Lending Industry!!

+++++++++Current Profile+++++++++
InterFinancial Holdings, Corp (IFLH)
Current Price $0.036
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Is this an undiscovered gem priced to go higher!!
Please read the following Announcement in its Entirety and Consider the Possibilities�
Watch this One to Trade!

IFLH announces Senator David Cain has joined its Board of Directors!!

IFLH volume trading is beginning to surge with landslide Announcement. The value of this
stock appears poised for growth! This one should not remain on the ground floor for long.

BREAKING NEWS!!
InterFinancial Holdings, Corp. (OTC Pink Sheets: IFLH - News) announced that they have added
David Cain to their board of directors. David Cain is currently the Chairman of the advisory
board to TTI (Texas Transportation Institute). Senator Cain represented Senate District 2 for
eight years in the Texas Senate and Chaired the Senate State Affairs Subcommittee on
Transportation and served nine terms in the Texas House of Representatives for District 107.

During his twelve years as Chairman of the House Committee on Transportation, Senator Cain�s
efforts on behalf of the people of Texas have been widely recognized. He was named to Texas
Monthly Magazine�s list of Ten Best Legislators, the Dallas Morning News said he was one of
the outstanding legislators of the 73rd session, and the Texas Department of Transportation
awarded him the Russell H. Perry Award in 1995 for his efforts to gain public awareness of
the need for and benefits of transportation facilities in the State of Texas.

Jeffrey C. Bruteyn, Managing Director, stated, We at InterFinancial are proud to have such a
widely recognized Senator join our board and oversee out automotive lending division. His
affiliations and connections to the automotive industry will be invaluable to our company.
Senator Cain will be instrumental in expediting our approval to use a government issued Seller
Finance License.

Seller Finance Licenses are very difficult to obtain and are usually reserved for the Big Boys
with heavy lobbyists. These licenses are highly coveted because it allows the finance company
to collect the entire down payment, instead of paying a portion of it to the taxing authority.
This dramatically helps a finance company�s bottom line if the buyer defaults on the loan.

With the new GPS tracking systems being installed on every car to dramatically improve
repossessions and with Senator Cain on the Board of Directors, InterFinancial Holdings
is ready to take their business to the next level.

Conclusion:

The examples above show the Awesome, Earning Potential of little known Companies
That Explode onto Investor�s Radar Screens. This stock will not be a Secret for long.
Then You May Feel the Desire to Act Right Now! And Please Watch This One Trade!!
GO IFLH!

================================

Please read the following Announcement in its Entierty and
Consider the Possibilities
Watch this One to Trade!

Because, EGTY has secured the global rights to market

The value of this Stock appears poised for growth! This one will not

===============
"BREAKING NEWS"
===============

-Energy and Asset Technology, Inc. (EGTY) owns a global license to market
the genetically enhanced Global Cedar growth trees, with plans to
REVOLUTIONIZE the forest-timber industry.

These newly enhanced Global Cedar trees require only 9-12 years of growth before they can
be harvested for lumber, whereas worldwide growth time for lumber is 30-50 years.

Other than growing at an astonishing rate, the Global Cedar has a number of other benefits.
Its natural elements make it resistant to termites, and the lack of oils and sap found in the wood
make it resistant to forest fire, ensuring higher returns on investments.

the wood is very lightweight and strong, lighter than Poplar and over twice
as strong as Balsa, which makes it great for construction. It also has
the unique ability to regrow itself from the stump, minimizing the land and
time to replant and develop new root systems.

Based on current resources and agreements, EGTY projects revenues of $140 Million
with an approximate profit margin of 40% for each 9-year cycle. With anticipated
growth, EGTY is expected to challenge Deltic Timber Corp. during its initial 9-year cycle.

Deltic Timber Corp. currently trades at over $38.00 a share with about $153 Million in revenues.
As the reputation and demand for the Global Cedar tree continues to grow around the world
EGTY believes additional multi-million dollar agreements will be forthcoming. The Global Cedar nursery has produced
about 100,000 infant plants and is developing a production growth target of 250,000 infant plants per month.

Energy and Asset Technology is currently in negotiations with land and business owners in New Zealand,
Greece and Malaysia regarding the purchase of their popular and profitable fast growing infant tree plants.
Inquiries from the governments of Brazil and Ecuador are also being evaluated.
