Pain in acute myocardial infarction (front)Image via WikipediaIt happened December 9, 2011. I had noticed a little pressure in my lower throat and upper chest on Wednesday the 7th as I was hustling around with my work. It felt similar to my days in high school and College as I ran track and pushed myself to almost complete exhaustion.
Thursday, I was pushing hard as I had much to do and it faded away as we had supper and relaxed in the evening.
Then on Friday the 9th, I had to go to the store and as it had snowed, I scooped the driveway Friday afternoon. I developed the same pressure again. I decided to sit in the recliner and took a nap for about an hour. I got up, put on my jacket and hat and was going to the garage to put on my rubber boots and for some reason, I decided to sit back down on the sofa and rest. I was very agitated The pain was getting stronger and stronger. I said, "Beth I think I had better go to the Hospital and see what is going on."
Beth called our sons and Brad told her to hang up and call 911. The rescue unit had just unloaded at Saint Elizabeth and was in route which was right by our area. (Thank you Lord--see how he protects us). They arrived at our house in maybe about 5 to 10 minutes.
The team came right in the door as they new they had to hurry from what Beth had told them. Beth has had 5 major heat attacks in her life. I had laid over on my side to see if I could get some relief from the pain. I now knew from my observations and experience with Beth, that I was having an Attack.
Beth was giving them my information as I now was in too much pain in my chest to talk and give good information. I now had tremendous pressure type pain all the way around my chest from my ears down to my upper belly. One fellow handed me 8 or 10 baby aspirins and told me to chew them before swelling them.
The rescue personal lifted me to my feet briefly and set me down again on a sheet of reenforced vinyl with a loop on each corner. Four fellows grabbed a loop and they picked me up and out the front door and onto a gurney and hustled me down the driveway and into the Rescue Unit. I remember seeing Brad (Our youngest of two sons) climb into the passenger seat of the unit.
The run of about two miles went quickly and I think that I only remember parts of it as the pain was now unbearable. I can remember one of the personal had attached a card a gram and was sending it to the hospital ER. He was talking to the Dr. and turned around and put a Nitro G. under my tongue and proceed to put an IV on the back side of each of my hands. I could tell the driver was taking the corners pretty fast and knowing the route, I could tell he was not stopping at any intersections.
I remember them unloading me out of the Unit, but only a little else until I heard one of the team telling the ER Dr. what he had seen and what they had done and the stats. They were beside my head on my right and I remember seeing Brad standing in the corner off my left foot. So much pain that I can't bear it.
Blank and then I heard and saw the ER Dr. on my right and another who proceeded to tell me that I was having a massive Heart Attack and they must operate right away before some of my heart dies. I said, "Do what you have to do." Dr. said, let his wife in here". Boy there was a lot of personal all around me. They made room and they had my wife in a wheel chair. (I wondered why). Beth reached up and touched me, but was very distraught. She was very Broke up and I wondered why.

You want success
We are programmed for failure.
Am I trying to tell you that there is no hope for you to become successful?
No, not if you understand what I am about to explain to you!
We were created for success, but we have been programed (educated) for faliure.If we completed K through 12, we spent about 14,000 hours learning how to live in the secular world. If we completed 4 years of college, we had about another 5,000 hours.
To illustrate this situation, I take you back with me to my birth. It was in July of 1937.
The country was just starting to come out of the Great Depression.At that time, 96% of the population was self employed,mostly on the farm. It was a good family life, but it was also a lot of hardwork. We learned teamwork from the time we were born. We learned how to think for ourselves within the teamwork.
But then there was a saying going throughout the whole county; (go to school, get a good education, and get a good job.) Guess who was promoting this saying!
Then the Second World War came along and there was a need for a lot of our women to go to work. And the push for getting a good educationso you could get a good job was pushed even harder.
So then everyone was going clear through K through 12. And guess what, we are all taught the very same thing, Every one must think the very same way. And that was to be the most productive for the company or theboss who writes your paycheck. (Who by the way is going to pay you the least amount they have to pay to get the number of employees they need or want.)
Case in point is that if you can not or will not learn,think and produce in the narrow thinking you are being taught, we medicate you so that you do not disturb the class.
I will give you two examples of what can happen when you move out of the box. Albert Einstein and Thomas Edison both could not function well in the classroom and they where home schooled by their mothers. They developed projects which have benefited many people in the whole world.
There are many very successful individuals beside these two.There are many young individuals in our schools who are not challenged today.
To succeed, we need to develop a positive attitude such as Edison had when he was asked by a reporter how he felt after 64 failures before hefinally found the way to make a better Light bulb filament. His answer was, “I was successful 64 times in finding the things that would not work. This was just part of the procedure.”
But, there is a much better way as Jesus said in
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come thatthey might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
And Paul said in,
And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
And God our father said.
10Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house,and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.
11And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field,saith the LORD of hosts.
12And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land, saith the LORD of hosts.
To your success,

What are you saying?
I discovered that I don't have to understand Electricity to enjoy it's benefits.
I just have to believe that I will have light when I flip the switch.
I discovered that I do not have to understand Healing to enjoy it's benefits.
I just have to know that I will receive healing when I ask.
