God Spoke Yesterday

Nearing in on a year, I’ve been dating Michelle, and we both think we might have finally found one with whom we are compatible.  Our passions for Conservative activism, computer geekery, a loving God and Savior, and a great match of goofy sense of humor have created the building blocks of a great relationship!  If there is such a thing; we may be soul mates.

Yesterday, God spoke to Michelle!!  He probably saved her life!

As I write, we are at the hospital in Des Peres, MO.  Michelle texted me yesterday (she never calls) saying that she was having excruciating pain in her abdomen.  A few hours later she was heading to the Urgent Care.  Hours later, she reported very high Blood Pressure, a completed CT Scan, bad Kidney numbers, and still the excruciating pain.  Finally, the doctor looked at the scan and saw a cyst on her left ovary.

The Urgicare doctor recommended she go to the hospital, and ‘had her Potassium numbers been bad would have put her in an ambulance’.

Michelle, acting like a typical male, refused and went home.  I arrived home to find her laying on the couch and occasionally moaning in pain.  A couple of hours passed, the pain strengthened, and the moaning grew louder.  Finally, she capitulated and agreed to leave for the hospital.  I recommended Des Peres Hospital after having found the Emergency Room empty on a prior visit!  But, as usual, unless you’re screaming in pain or unconscious, the ER folks move at a glacial pace.

After an eternal 2-hour wait, Michelle got a shot of morphine.  Relief?  No.  A half hour later, a shot of Dilaudid – one of the most powerful painkillers available – finally took the edge off the pain.

It was a long night and morning wondering what was going on.  Various doctors visited and asked alot of questions. NO ONE seemed concerned enough (to us) about the pain and the cyst.  They all seemed preoccupied with the kidney numbers.

Finally, the nephrologist arrived.  We discussed in detail the results of all her tests and found out that her kidneys were functioning at 10%!  Ten Percent!!  And, though she’s had chronic kidney failure since she was a child and has known that at some point that failure would advance, it is well past time to start paying detail attention to this medical issue.  Dialysis and transplant are likely in the coming years.

The pain?  Likely from the cyst.  Not that big of a deal though uncomfortable.  Probably will go away on its own.  Unrelated to the kidney issue.

But, I don’t think there could have been a bigger alarm bell than the pain that got her to the hospital in the first place.  She wasn’t attending to her underlying problem, so God said, “Alright, we’ll get the focus on her health!”

And boy did He!

Had He not intervened, her kidneys might have completely shut-down before we even gave them a thought!  There were no symptoms; no indications.  No clue that her kidneys needed attention.

Thanks to God Almighty for speaking to her and keeping her under His care!

God Did Not Create The Universe

That was the declaration of Stephen Hawking, noted and brilliant (until now) scientist, in his soon to be released book.

From the Mail Online, “In The Grand Design, extracts of which were printed today, Prof Hawking concludes: ‘Because there is a law such as gravity, the universe can and will create itself from nothing.”

What astounding hubris and chutzpah scientists such as Professer Hawking display when they make such a claim that God did not create the universe.  Conversely, what an amazing level of ignorance, naiveté and blindness is portrayed at the same time.  In the same statement where Hawking asserts that God did not create the universe, Hawking confirms that God really did.

Simply put Mr. Hawking, “Where did the law of gravity come from?”

Great scientists like Mr. Hawking have assured us that the world was flat and there was an underworld, that the sun circled the earth, that there was nothing smaller than the molecule, and now that there was no hand of God in the creation of the universe.

With the increasing number of scientific discoveries made each day, one would think Mr. Hawking would have the sense to know that all the evidence is not in… …since he can’t answer the simple question… …who or what created the law of gravity?

Heard of a Magnetar?

A Yahoo story describes scientists’ discovery of the Westerlund 1 Cluster in 1961.  Westerland 1 contains what has been called a Magnetar.  Theorized in 1992 and now widely accepted, the Magnetar is a type of neutron star with an extremely powerful magnetic field, the decay of which powers the emission of copious amounts of high-energy electromagnetic radiation, particularly X-rays and gamma rays.

The Yahoo story talks about how the creation of this Magnetar from a star 40 times the size of our sun creates interesting questions about our knowledge of the life cycle of stars.

So, before 1992 we were sure that certain sized stars became Black Holes and smaller stars became Neutron Stars.

Before 1543 and Copernicus, we KNEW… …the Sun revolved around the Earth

Before 1492, we KNEW… …the Earth was flat.

And many among us… …KNOW there is no God.

Sure about that?
