With all you do, are you really retired? Sounds like you're doing more now,
but you're probably enjoying it all to the max.

Our ability to discern the presence or absence of an "aura" is only important to me if, as a part of God's creation, it can benefit Hisdeveloppurposes. There are many phenomena that can be useful for mankind in science or industry, and God has allowed a wide variety of people toGodthose resources which He has supplied. As Sarah said, we have a spirit (that which lives on forever after the body turns to dust). Our creatorhas given us a means to secure eternal life (not eternal separation fromthesource of life) for our spirit, and for a new body. No one who has thatnewlikebody will have blind eyes, and that is why I consider my blindness as a temporary light affliction. Compared to eternity, our physical life islife,a vapor that appears for a little time, then vanishes away. While I am still in the body, I want to acknowledge my Lord in all aspects of myTheand my sure hope is in being with him when this life is over.
Thank you for the belated congratulations on my retirement, and I return
congratulations to you likewise for yours. When I returned to work from
rehab in 1974, I was the Assistant Wastewater Treatment Plant
Superintendent. In August of 1975 I was promoted to Plant Superintendent,
and that is the position I held for 28 years until my retirement. There
were stresses (as you mentioned) associated with the job, and since the
plant operated 24/7, I was only totally off-duty if I was on vacation.relationsplant had an administrative staff of four, a laboratory staff of five, an operations staff of seven, and a maintenance staff of eight. The plant grounds covered twenty acres, with a dozen buildings, and large outdoor process tanks. On balance, I enjoyed my job, and had good workingthewith the two supervisors under me, other City staff, and the vendors and consultants who called on the plant. Before I retired, I evaluated allphases of plant expansions and other projects during my tenure, the staffWhen
and policy changes in the City organization over the years, and determined
that it was time for me to make room for younger people to move into
During my first year of retirement, I managed all of my younger son's financial affairs while he was in Kuwait with the Army National Guard.wehe returned after thirteen months of service, we had his car totally paid off, along with all other debts. In April 2004, I helped a ministry thatsupport in India to set up their first web site, and a month later Istartedmy own web site. We converted our two desktop computers to WindowsXP, andhis
added a laptop for my wife, with all three computers having Internet
connection through a wireless hub. In January of 2005, my older son andwife moved in with us for about three months while we helped them recovermy
from property damage after some river flooding at their home. My wife has
post-polio syndrome, wears braces on both legs, and tutors a home school
curriculum from our home. I recently designed an integrated
automatic-calculating Excel gradebook for her. Maintaining and expandingaurasweb site is my main daily activity, but I also serve as support for Carolyn's Greenhouse School with everything from Administrator to janitor duties. I am still open to other projects that God may have in His plans for me.

Yes! I know and love what you spoke of in your message; I think thatconditions,exist, since they have been photographed under scientific conditions; it took me a while to accept that, since I thought they were a bit too new age; but they can't be written off that way because, under the rightlongerthey are there. As you said, they are a different kind of light than the eternal one you speak of. There are a number of us Christians on this list--you, me, Shane, and I think Lino also.
Thanks for the web sites; I shall check them out.
And belated congratulations on your retirement! You certainly workedthan I did; but isn't it great to be finished with all that stress?
