LET IT BE ME! https://youtu.be/5LWpw3CMCEg
I know that Jesus is singing this to me: There comes a time, a time in
everyone's life. Where nothing seems to go your way. Where nothing seems
to turn out right. There may come a time, you just can't seem to find
your place. For every door you open, seems like you get two slammed in
your face. That's when you need someone, someone that you, you can call.
When all your faith is gone and it feels like you can't go on. Let it
be Me - If it's a friend that you need. Let it be Me.
Thank You Lord, as
I Love You too, from Sir Richard...
JUST A THOUGHT OF, WHY WE ARE ALL HERE? https://youtu.be/aBpMHxtZeMA Maybe and yes, I could be very wrong in my belief that we all started
out from heaven, in some shape or form I do not know but again I
believe, we were the ones who choose to come to Earth. For whatever
reason, for we just forgot the purpose of this at our birth. GOD our
Father loves us dearly and yet is concerned that we came to
this very broken world. Maybe simply it is just a test, maybe just
simply to bring Glory to His name! For I believe He allowed us to come
here because we all have a purpose of some sort on this tiny rock that
we all co-inhabit… Some make it, yet others do not. It is after all a
very broken world, which we exist on, full of evil things, disease,
hunger and want. Some of us are blessed with much, some not so much and
some sadly return to our Father in short order. Maybe it is just to show
that we can find our way back by our own evolved Faith and also by
helping others along the way? Who knows, but one thing for sure is that
we will all return to heaven one day, to present ourselves before GOD.
To let Him know how we did and explain if we either brought Glory to His
name, or not, as we are all really part of Him. Maybe that is one
reason OF WHY WE ARE ALL HERE? This thought is written for you with LOVE and all that heaven will allow by Sir Richard… http://bayo-hunter.blogspot.com/
I have been going through this same pain of loss since my wife Joyce passed on May 27th 2014. At first I could not attend Church after Joyce's life celebration. I just sat in my home. Now I can go online to watch sermons and attend life group dinners that are next door only, yet I know not why and neither do you. I Volunteer as a tour guide at the HANGAR FLIGHT MUSEUM for only a few hours on weekends to talk to people but the pain never leaves me! Some days I am so angry and fed up but JESUS CHRIST helps me through it.
Without Him I would not have made it out of my protective shell, the little that I do. Or survived the on slot of difficulties that I face from time to time. I am thankful to JESUS CHRIST for my home my new companion Evie Dog and the heat, food, water and light plus earth angels whom I am also grateful too.
Still suffer the daily pain and loneliness. Plus fear of leaving my home, for it was when I left home on an errand to come back after and I find that my wife Joyce was called home by JESUS CHRIST to end her suffering of Lupus.
THE HURT https://youtu.be/sWBb4yaswAA I am in pain again today, for I am not holding up well. I once had a dream on the first day we moved into this house and after
I awoke. I remember, that I was walking downstairs, the sun was shining
and everything and everyone was gone, as I was all alone. It was if I
was doing a final inspection before I had to hand my keys to the new
owners? I know with GOD your never alone but the PAIN in my life
is still there; as I am not a human light switch, just a child really. Yet should I out live Joyce and our Puppy Dogs, this dream will become true, that I will be the last to leave our home. The Hurt, by Sir Richard... IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER SON AND HOLY GHOST I PRAY - AMEN.
I present to you, Richard Abbenbroek while many of us know Richard well
(sort of) and in fact we call him “Sir Richard”. There are a few
wonderful and perhaps, unknown tidbits that I would like to share about
our delightful cousin from Canada. As we remember from going through
Team HOPE training, we were asked to provide our fingerprints to the
FBI. Richard, shall we say had a “concern” about being asked to give his
fingerprints during his training in 2003 in Alexandria. The reason? He
thought that somehow the FBI would learn as NCMEC checked his background
that one of his ancestors assisted in burning of the White House during
the War of 1812 along with the pillaging and burning the city of
Washington, DC with his fellow Canadians. A historical note: we
Americans and Canadians back then finally resolved our differences in
December 1814 with the signing of the Treaty of Ghent and we have been
loyal friends since.https://youtu.be/llCtrzmF96I
Nevertheless, Richard wanted to become a Team HOPE volunteer so
fervently that he worried about the direly past deeds of his ancient
relatives. During training one night, while other Team HOPE volunteers
to-be went to a local “hang-out,” Richard took a night bus tour of
Washington DC. When he was the Vietnam memorial, he became so overcome
with emotion that he started to cry, as he once served in the Royal
Canadian Air Force. A US Nam Veteran who was there told Richard that
“It’s OK, Brother” grabbed him which startled Richard and said come with
me.” The Vet then took Richard up to a group of other Nam Veterans who
did not believe he had never been in Vietnam. Richard continually said
that he was just an ex-Canadian Air Force person who had served only in
Canada. The Nam Veterans thought Richard was just in denial and gave him
a wooden nickel, which said; “Welcome Home, Brother!”https://youtu.be/HNjEPHvDxZQ
Along with his commitment to Team HOPE, Richard volunteers his time and
heart admirably to other organizations and human crises. To those in
need of a supporting hand, Richard is there to help. For a number of
years, Richard was a Volunteer Intake Worker with Child Find Alberta and
supported parents of all missing children 300 in total from 1989 -
2003. This position ultimately paved the way for Richard to become part
of Team HOPE (as of this date Child Find Alberta plus Team Hope
Referrals 300 + 108 = 408 Referrals that he had worked on to date).https://youtu.be/LRP8d7hhpoQ
He has also reached out via his church. When Hurricane Katrina hit the
Gulf Coast in 2005, he traveled with his church as part of Samaritans
Purse Canada to, Mississippi/Louisanna. For a few weeks, Richard and his
team cleaned more than 70 resident homes, salvaging personal effects
and restoring the surroundings. On another mission trip to South Africa,
Richard worked with his team installing a computer lab in a local High
School. As Richard says, while his help and others are “drops in the
bucket,” they are “planting seeds that one day they may make a
difference!” Oh by the way I am from Calgary Alberta Canada. This song in memory of his late Wife Joyce.https://youtu.be/l0XDTgfCCKA from Sir Richard...http://bayo-hunter.blogspot.ca/ Richard Abbenbroek aka Sir Richard...
They say that behind every man
there’s a Great Woman! In my life this is so true, as what I became would never
have happened without Joyce. Sure, many other dynamics and people came into my
life to make me who I am today… https://youtu.be/o2vkAF8HFGE
“The Fires of Hell” could well be licking at your toes, she always reminded me.
Joyce was my center as I started my quest to find the Comfort and Love that is
I would never have learned how to make pictures of a rabbit and tank on a Dot
Matrix Machine and work with computers. She gave me the courage to go to night
school, so I could make it into the Information Technology Department at the
Calgary Public Library.
I wouldn’t have been able to take that little bit of computer knowledge and use
it to help build a Computer Lab at the High School in KwaZulu-Natal Province,
Bhekulwandle South Africa.
I would never have had the ability to make nightly calls to over 408 Parents
and assist them in the recovery of their Missing Children, through Child Find
Alberta and Team Hope the National Center of Missing and Exploited Children.
Volunteer with my late Wife Joyce at Inn From The Cold, learning from her how
to help those so in need.
I could never have gone to the Gulf of Mexico and assist in the recovery of 70
Hurricane Katrina ravaged homes in Mississippi and Louisiana. Or become a Rapid Response Chaplin at Samaritan's Purse Canada without Joyce and GOD.
I also Volunteered on 2 Parent Sponsoring Committees of Royal Canadian Air
Cadet Squadrons - 781 Squadron and 538 Squadron. Proudly watching my Step Son
make it to Sargent and eldest Granddaughter make it to Warrant Officer in rank. Or be
there for when my youngest daughter needed a real Mom or when my eldest
daughters water broke as I was there for her eldest daughter for the same.
I would never have had the simple joy of having a Family, Grandchildren and
puppy dogs. She was My Best Friend, she loved me like No Other Human being and
taught me to share this Love with many who needed it and even those who may not
have deserved it. Which is something good, that GOD taught both Joyce and me.
But with Joyce:
I had Twenty-Eight years together 1986 – 2014 May 27th; that have gone by in a
blink of an eye. We traveled life’s road and have been there and done that,
made it through moments of pee your pants giggles, struggle and strife. Yet my
life on this earth was made better With Joyce and yet I must live another day
and night alone, Without Joyce.
