''Whenever the white man treats the Indian as they treat each other, then we will have no more wars. We shall all be alike,

Brothers of one father and one mother, with one sky above us and one country around us, and one government for all.''

''Chief Joseph''...Nez Perce Indian

Good-Morning!,..Nope,..''I Am not the Man I Was''..either,..I'm just 'Tired!...

Well,..Let's Remedy that situation by Going and Grabbing that ''Cup O' Joe'' and finding a good spot to

nestle down in while We figure out about All of this Not Being Who We Were stuff,..It's a wee bit early, My Mind is still

a little ''Froggy''...Maybe that ''Cup O' Joe will 'Perk' Us up some,..So ''Come on Cricket's,..let's Start Chirping!''...

Many Questions have come My way,...As We get ''Older'',..We Start to ponder about our-self,..We take a step back, ..Turn

around and look behind Us,..a Peek into the Past,..A kind of 'Backward Glance' into the Mirror of Our Life.. Who are We,

What are We,.What did We Accomplish...Is this where I want to be,or Wanted to BE,..Am I that Same Person I was when I

was Young?

We meet People We haven't seen in a Lifetime,..''Oh!..Why You haven't Changed a Bit!''...Wow,..''Was I THAT Bad,..or was I

that Good'' You say with a ''Chuckle'' as Your turning ''Crimson!''...Come to think of it,..Your still the same too..You blurt out

with a loss for words!

Our Generation,..the ''Boomers''..or actually any Generation,.Most of Us Are, or Were Service-Men or Women, and IF,..a Big

IF there,..We were in Combat,..CHANGED Forever from the Young Innocent, the ...Well,..I'll call it the ''Casualties of War''

Group...Having Seen and Maybe Done things a Young Person should Never been Exposed to.

I'll put that on ''Hold'' for a sec.,..I was also asked Questions about GOD,..Faith, and Creation...Why was I Born type of

questions..So,..I'll hit You with Scripture at this point, Fact a Couple of Parables to put in the ''Pot'' You ''Stir them!''

Job-33:4...''The Spirit of God has made me,..the breath of the Almighty gives me life.''

Genesis-1:27...''GOD created man in his own image, in the image of God he created them, male and female he created them.''

Psalm-139:13-14...''For You created my inmost being, You knit me together in my mother's womb.I praise You because I am

fearfully and wonderfully made, Your works are wonderful, I know that full well.''

OK,..''Yada-yada-yada'' You are a thinking,..What does that have to do with ''I Am NOT the Man I Was!?''..Absolutely Nothing!

Now I really have Your Attention,..The ''Hook'' to All this is...Look in the ''Mirror''...See that Old Tired Looking Face?..Now don't

get Your Shorts All Bunched up quite yet,..Now Look at an old photo of YOU when You were Young...See Any Difference?

I Don't!...Although You HAVE Physically aged,..You are Still as Young as You want to be,.or feel,..

It's in YOUR Heart!...Sure,.its true that You lost your innocence because You went to Serve your Country,..Yes, it did Change

You inside,..But You are Still YOU!

Confused yet!?...''I Am Not the Same Man I Was''....And We are Not,..But in Your Walk of Faith,..The Lord tells You NOT to

''Harden Your Heart''..THAT is what Changes People,..Makes them Old,..Crankey,..''Outcasts'' in their Own World..

Remember there was a Time when We had No Cares in the World,..We were Young at heart,..Every Problem was a lark and

had a Solution,..Now that We GOT Older,..I didn't say are Older,..We Have So Many things Piled -up on Us..''Issues''..

everything seems to be Magnified.....''LET-GO!''...Go back to the Day's of Your Youth,..And it Starts by ''FAITH!''...Faith in

Yourself,..and Faith in GOD When He said,..''I Will Never Leave nor Forsake You!''

We Got Old because We Forgot About Love,..Faith and the Promise that the Lord Will see you through Your Trials and


Yes,..Aging is part of Life,..Part of Growing Old,..Part of Dying...But We All must renew Our Strength and Enjoy the Time

Allotted Us,..Renew Your Faith.....Jesus said it best...

John-16:33...''I have told you these things, so that in ME you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart!

I have overcome the world.''

''I Am Not the Same Man I Was'''s True,..Thank God for that!..Boy,..I really dropped the ball back then,..I now have a Second

Chance..My Faith Will Carry Me this Time!...

Learn to Love Again, as We did in Our Youth,..You need to Love Yourself first before You can love anyone else,.And that True

Love Starts by Loving God,..Then,as you were Created in His Image,..The Love will Grow and Flow...

I Leave You with these Parables..

Hebrews-11:24-40...''God is not unjust to forget your work and labor of love which you have showed to wars His name,in

that you have ministered to the saints.''

''God's love changes prodigal sons into precious saints.''

''God's whisper of comfort quiets the noise of our trials.''

Sherrie and I Hold All of You in Prayer along with Those Warrior's in Harm's Way and also Our Great Nation America...

May We Always be able to say..''May GOD Bless America''...for it is in ''GOD We Trust!''..AMEN..

Pastor Frank the ''Preacher'' and Sherrie.....

A ''FOOT-NOTE''...For Our Viet-Nam Veteran's to Ponder...''Not Being the Same''...

''Not Everyone Who Lost His Life in Viet-Nam Died There...Not Everyone Who Came Home from Viet-Nam Ever Left There''

That is the BASIS for Today's Message...Were NOT the Same...We are Older and Wiser now...We Hope!
