Bible Stumbling Blocks by Jesse C. Jones — Chapter 8 is new — Find out if you are ‘Dead or Alive?’

1.Stumble-Cover-Final2Have you ever studied the bible and found things you just couldn’t reconcile with your mind and your Spirit?  I believe if we are honest, we all have.  My good friend and biblical mentor for many, many years — has put together a book for us to help us on some very complex concepts and perhaps take us all a little deeper in understanding too.  It is dense with scripture references if you are studying to teach others on topics this little book includes. Jesse C. Jones the author just added Chapter 8 and the entire book is available for free via Scribd.  You can read it there or download it and read it on your own computer or even print out whole chapters if you like.  We hope it will enrich your study of the bible and drive you to Him in prayer for understanding in your own spirit.  May you be richly blessed in your personal study and journey.  May you know Him and the fullness of His call and anointing  on your life.

Washington County Grassroots Meeting – Thursday Dec 11th 6:30PM at the Bartlesville Library

 

Washington County Grassroots Graphic Corrected 2014Dear Friends in Washington County Grassroots,

Recently several people on our prayer team met to discuss a broader meeting this month in preparation for events that will occur in January 2015. We decided to set up a meeting to seek wisdom on matters:

Bartlesville Public Library (meeting room on 2nd floor)
Dec 11th 6:30 PM

Please come if you can and feel free to share with anyone interested in attending. We will share what we know about what lies up ahead and seek the wisdom of the body as we move ahead.

Sandra will share briefly about upcoming Republican party meetings in early 2015 with dates and process and ways to get involved if you are interested in doing so.

Precinct Meetings in January (precinct chair and other officers will be elected this cycle)
County Meeting usually in March (county chair and other officers will be elected this cycle)
State Convention usually in April (state chair and other officers will be elected this cycle)

If you have resolutions to share with everyone, please bring multiple copies to share and circulate!

______________________________

Shelle will share some projects on her heart and set up teams to tackle ongoing projects. Do you have 1 -3 hours a month you can spare for liberty? If so consider these team projects:

Patriots who will attend Local School Board meetings
Patriots who will attend City Council Meetings
Patriots who will attend County Commissioner Meetings
Patriots willing to reach out to local legislators and establish regular meetings with them
Patriots willing to share this information
Patriots who know the constitution is about protecting freedoms
Patriots willing to form Block Prayer teams
Patriots willing to be speakers/topics of interest

______________________________

Randy will share briefly about Oathkeepers and what that might look like on a local level:

[Recently] I woke up with a desire to offer precinct leaders and activists a forum to do more than serve the 2-party system .

A broader concept would be based on security and community – neighborhood watch, preparedness, resource sharing, Civil Preservation Teams like Oathkeepers has planned. (And ultimately, the intended function of a militia would be met—hopefully restored.

Here’s a link to an Oathkeepers page that provides a Documentary film on Martial Law —

http://oathkeepers.org/oath/2014/11/24/oath-keepers-saddle-up-for-midnight-ride/

We need to resist top-down control by Feds and renew local control through the People — an informed and educated grassroots network.

______________________________

Other items to add to agenda? Please let us know in advance of meeting.

We will keep the meeting itself to a 2 hour format to optimize everyone’s time.

A Letter for My Doctors — a sample and a suggestion

Hippocrates engraving by Peter Paul Rubens 1638As my letter says:

“I am increasingly concerned about privacy in the medical field. Please place this letter at the top of my file. I wish to rescind anything in my medical records that I have signed in the past that would make you think it is permissable to share my medical records with other persons or entities without my express written permission. This letter supercedes anything else on file in that regard. “

The full letter is available on scribd for you to see and share as you wish below.  I am taking two copies of this letter to my doctor each time I visit them.  I am asking the person working the desk to place a copy in my file on top of all other records.  The other copy I am asking my doctor to sign for me that he has seen it and that one I keep.  What is happening here may or may not protect my records from being shared, but it is me going on record and putting in print that I want my privacy protected.  It is what I can do about matters and it lets them know in no uncertain terms, that I do not want my information shared.  Some will tell you that HIPPA provides you privacy protection.  But others will tell you to define privacy.  We have very little these days, but it is still a matter of importance that we remind people not only of its importance but that we want to keep matters between ourselves and our doctor(s).

I am doing what I can and having the conversation with my doctors and their staff.  May I suggest you have one with your doctors too!  Have some fun along the way.  You may find a friend who is like minded and fighting for your privacy too!

Thanksgiving Blessings from My House to Yours — Thanks be to the Lord for His Provision!

 
Thanksgiving Card 2013 cover
Dear Friends & Family,
 
The last annual letter that I did was in 2005 so I think today would be a good day to write one and update everyone on recent years also.  I do hope this letter finds you doing well and serving the Lord and walking in your calling.  I would love to hear from you whenever that is possible~
.
In 2013 some very sad news with the loss of Peaches, my female green eyed calico rescue cat.  I miss her terribly as she was my main talker and surveillance/security monitor.  She loved running water to drink.  A real delight!  Ivory, my female Siamesish blue eyed cat, is hanging in there with me and is a lot of entertainment too.
.
Paula, my sister, and Tim, her husband, came to visit recently and I loved every minute of having them here including some redecorating ideas and some very clever suggestions to make my life a little easier!
.
I have been publishing some books for lifetime friend and mentor, Jesse Jones and also sharing some of my own documents online via Scribd.  You can find them here: http://scribd.com/scrosnoe
.
The latest book released there is about how my folks and Jesse met Jesus and the special bible teacher sent their way many years ago.  Some of you will remember Brother Earle Frid.  The story is here:  A Man of God by Jesse C. Jones
.
In April of 2012, Paula gave me an awesome 60th birthday party at Sterlings in Bartlesville.  For that event I prepared an online presentation of life events for those able to be there in person.  It is available here:  Celebration Birthday for Sandra Crosnoe — April 2012
.
Another highlight of the year (and a lowlight all in one) was being an alternate delegate to the Republican National Convention in Tampa Florida.  It was the partial fulfillment of a lifetime dream to get to attend with delegate status, but the shattering of the dream of a party operating in any sense according to the rules.  My observation is that the grassroots are not really wanted until time to go vote for the media manufactured darling.  The Ron Paul party & events for his delegates were a lot of fun and some great networking opportunities as well.  The pool/beach time on the way with Ryan and Julia made it all worthwhile.  We stayed beachfront at the Margueritaville Hotel and had a marvelous time and some great food too.
.
In 2011 the most wonderful memorable event of the year was a trip to Las Vegas with my sister Paula and my good friend Donna.  Paula arranged a birthday trip for us where we stayed at the Bellagio with the dancing fountains, went to not one not two, but THREE shows, had fabulous meals and a spa day and a helicopter ride over Hoover Dam!  Great pics from the trip here (probably more than you want to see but suffice it to say we had a great time.  I have a video of the helicopter ride somewhere if you ever want to see it!):  sandiec99’s photosets on Flickr
.
Saddest event of the year was the loss of my good friend David Hall.  Shelli Dawdy wrote an article for me while I made the trip to Texas with Donna Gustafson, to be with family and friends there. Here is her tribute online to David Hall our belladier http://grassrootsne.com/on-loss-of-belladier-david-hall-bells-must-be-ringing-in-heaven/  I also lost Ebony my golden eyed black male cat this year.  He was a love bug for sure.  It was a sad sudden event and I miss him dearly!
.
In 2010  I helped a bit with Nathan Dahm’s race for Congress and although he did not win, he laid the groundwork then for his election to the Oklahoma Senate subsequently where he is now serving.  I believe that he busted up the turf for Jim Bridenstine’s subsequent election to Congress in District 1.  A real win/win and progress!  Senator Dahm and Congressman Bridenstine are both bright spots on our Oklahoma political landscape in my opinion.  I created a book for my family of recipe treasures and ultimately shared it online here:  Recipe Treasures – Crosnoe to Caswell
.
2009 – Somewhere in this time I started blogging and social networking and did some radio broadcasts with Shelli called the Constitutional Liberty Coalition Gets Grizzly.   We also worked with a team of people on the original Tea Party efforts.  It is worth more than a paragraph, but suffice it to say it was grassroots and co-opted almost all in the same breath.  My blogging began as https://scrosnoe.wordpress.com Finding Gems & Sharing Them (but it began on blogger if you ever want to explore the old archives (for a good laugh I am sure).  Out of these early efforts some networks grew and prospered (online websites and on facebook and twitter):

OKGrassroots – Oklahoma Grassroots Network (syndicated) http://okgrassroots.com
CLibertyC – Constitutional Liberty Coalition (syndicated multi-state) http://clibertyc.com
.
In November, my nephew, Byron married his sweetheart Tracy.  They had a marvelous wedding and I was glad to be able to attend and be a part of the festivities.  They are now all settled in their own home in DC.
.
In 2008 I made the trip to Minneapolis with Deborah and some of my Okie buddies for the RNC and the parallel Ron Paul Convention which was way ‘funner’ than the other one and well attended too!  That was the first time I ever heard the ‘END the FED’ cheer by thousands of people.  It was inspiring to say the least!  Special thanks to Matt for getting me a guest pass for the other convention.  It was the first time to hear Sarah Palin in person and observe the police state at conventions too (again experienced in 2012 – ask me about it sometime for details!).
.
In 2007 I began working with a few others to create the Ron Paul network and convince him to run for President.  He did and although he lost, I believe we made a difference and opened many eyes in the process.  We tried!  This work was the foundation for many things that transpired later in teaparty efforts and communications networks and campaigns on issues and on leadership too.  Shared a wonderful New Year’s Eve Cruise with my good friend Jim Boulet and awfully glad for the good memories as he went to be with the Lord just a few years after that.
.
In 2006 for part of the year, Hannah Dudkiewicz, a foreign exchange student from Germany, lived with me.  We traveled a great deal and I had a wonderful time showing her a little bit of our way of life.  Last I heard she was in college in Berlin.  She certainly was artistically gifted and she remains in my prayers.
.
That should bring you up to date with the highlights, but YOU are in the details or you would not be reading this.  I thank you for your part in making my life rich and full.  Thank you for your prayers and your presence online and in person making a difference wherever and whenever possible.  I look forward to seeing you in person as the Lord leads our paths to cross again.  Let us keep blessing as many as we can as we learn to walk in His ways as we go.  Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

make known his deeds among the peoples!
Sing to him, sing praises to him;
tell of all his wondrous works!

.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
.
—Philippians 4:6

Happy Father’s Day Thoughts

Taking a little trip down memory lane, I did this post on facebook last night:

Facebook post on Father's Day June 16 2013

And then I began thinking about my Heavenly Father — you know the One Who Made us all?!

Father's Day Post

Photo credit: Rex Morache cover art from After the Big Bang publication

Father’s Day is not just about your earthly dad.  I am pausing to say thanks to my heavenly Father for all His tender loving care along the Way!  I am grateful especially for His patience, mercies, healing touches and gentle nudges at just the right time.  He does things in a way so that I can see and hear and understand a little more about Him each time!  The unfolding revelation and the comfort of His presence is beyond compare and an eternal promise.

I have a lot to be thankful for!

Blessings,

Sandie
