There is a popular myth today, that John Newton wrote these lyrics very shortly after he was saved. It follows that he was aboard his ship one night, wistfully looking out to sea and was so moved by his recent salvation experience that, purely out of his emotions, wrote "Amazing Grace". What does the historical record show? Did he write this from his feelings... or was this a testimony written by a man who studied and knew the word of God, an experienced saint and minister to the saints. A man who knew the transforming power of God's grace... which opened his eyes and caused him to see himself as God saw him and as God truly sees every man; the grace to persevere throughout the troubles of his own life; the grace that gave him a real hope and expectation in the forgiveness of God, in spite of himself; And would result in eternally resting and existing with God. But mainly the grace to count himself and his own life as nothing and Christ, and service to Him, as everything. This is the story of John Newton and his amazing testimony...

MY MAN, MY HARLEY AND ME
As I ride on my HARLEY, Alive and carefree. I see things about life that could never be.
The dreams and thoughts of what life's all about; are shattered to pieces without any doubt.
To have enough money in my pocket, love in my HEART
I'll find my heavens above, that's where I'll START.
I Feel, I Know, What I Need To Do! and With enough booze and dope; my dreams could come true!!!
Just to have my MAN, my HARLEY, and ME; is enough for my BEAUTIFUL family of THREE

21 yrs ago Mrs. M. gave me 19/20; she wrote in the margin "Are these your words?" ~ AS IT IS WRITTEN... "Yes, Mrs. M. they are."
My Today Once there was a man, who lived among us. His presence and being existed with true honesty, warmth and pride. His days were measured by a drive and power that was rare and often unnoticed. A power of existence that made him a legend after death, Never to be forgotten. A man with smiling eyes, A man of good will and humor Why was he taken?, Why did he suffer?, Why? Can the lord above please answer me?

Good evening, my name is Ginny Bonn and I am a friend of Krista’s and Patch’s.
ATLANTIC FUNERAL HOME - SACKVILLE, NOVA SCOTIA- AS IT IS WRITTEN BY MY GINNY Ever since Krista asked me to speak about Patch tonight, I've been pondering my thoughts about what to say. I had only known him since he and Krista got married in 2004. I didn't know what to think when I got back from my winter holiday, when she called to say that she got married on Valentine's day. She was gleefully happy, and head over heels in love, so I reserved my initial comments; until I summed him up for myself. I was soon happy to discover that I instantly liked him. He was friendly, vibrant, interesting, and head over heels in love. I thought to myself, sounds a little crazy, but just maybe they'll prove that there really is
"LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT"!
I got an email a little while ago called, "You're in my Life for a Reason", I don't know who the author was, but it touched me enough to print it off and keep it. I won't read all of it, but I would like to share a couple of paragraphs.
PEOPLE COME INTO YOUR LIFE FOR: A REASON.... SEASON.... OR A LIFETIME.....
When you know which one it is for a person, you will know what to do for that person. When someone is in your life for a Reason, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed. They have come to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you with guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally, or spiritually. They may seem like a Godsend, and they are! They are there for the reason you need them to be. Then, without any wrong doing on your part, or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end.
SOMETIMES THEY DIE...
Sometimes, they walk away. Sometimes, they act up and force you to take a stand. What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled, their work is done. The prayer you sent up has been answered, and now it is time to move on. I truly believe that Krista and Patch met for a Reason, to fulfill different, but equally important, needs in each of them. Patch has moved on now, his needs met, and I feel truly blessed to have met him, and call him my friend for the short time I knew him. His enthusiasm for life was contagious. His warmth and generosity understated. And, his love and respect for his family his greatest strength. Patch to know you, was to love you, and Cassidy and I will both miss you, and remember you always lovingly as
"Patches". Thank You Virginia A. Bonn Psst...Post-It Note
