Some have said that ISIS is "America's Greatest Threat,"  IMHO, I believe continues to be our "biggest threat." However it was the U.S. that funded and trained the ISLAMIC STATE (ISIS), and had our Military train them. Obama asked for another $500,000,000...

Awesome Video about Jesus birth and the reality of who he is.
This song by Francesca Battistelli is amazing! I edited this music video using clips from The Nativity Story and The Gospel of John. God Bless you and Merry Christmas.

Kelly Clarkson and Trisha Yearwood Perform ‘Silent Night’ When They’re Joined By A Guest
In beautiful harmony, Kelly Clarkson and Trisha Yearwood are joined by a surprise Country Superstar for a stunning rendition of “Silent Night” that gave everyone in the auditorium  goose bumps. Their voices blend together beautifully with this beloved Christmas classic written in 1818 reminding us what CHRISTmas is all about.

When an old man died in the geriatric ward of a nursing home in  North Platte ,  Nebraska , it was believed that he had nothing left of any value.

Later, when the nurses were going through his meager possessions, they found this poem. Its quality and content so impressed the staff that copies were made and distributed to every nurse in the hospital.  One nurse took her copy to  Missouri . 

The old man's sole bequest to posterity has since appeared in the Christmas edition of the News Magazine of the  St. Louis Association for Mental Health. A slide presentation has also been made based on his simple, but eloquent, poem.

And this little old man, with nothing left to give to the world, is now the author of this 'anonymous' poem winging across the Internet.

Crabby Old Man

What do you see nurses? . . .. .. . What do you see?
What are you thinking . . . . . when you're looking at me?
A crabby old man . . .. . . not very wise,
Uncertain of habit . . . . . with faraway eyes?

Who dribbles his food . . . . . and makes no reply.
When you say in a loud voice . . . . . 'I do wish you'd try!'
Who seems not to notice . .. . . . the things that you do.
And forever is losing . . . . . A sock or shoe?

Who, resisting or not . . . . . lets you do as you will,
With bathing and feeding . . . . . The long day to fill?
Is that what you're thinking? . . . . . Is that what you see?
Then open your eyes, nurse . . . . . you're not looking at me.

I'll tell you who I am. . . . .. . As I sit here so still,
As I do at your bidding, . . . . . as I eat at your will.
I'm a small child of Ten . . . . . with a father and mother,
Brothers and sisters . . . . . who love one another.

A young boy of Sixteen . . . . with wings on his feet.
Dreaming that soon now . .. . . . a lover he'll meet.
A groom soon at Twenty . . . . . my heart gives a leap.
Remembering, the vows . . . . . that I promised to keep.

At Twenty-Five, now . . . . . I have young of my own.
Who need me to guide . . . . . And a secure happy home.
A man of Thirty . . . .. . My young now grown fast,
Bound to each other . . . . . With ties that should last.

At Forty, my young sons . . .. . . have grown and are gone,
But my woman's beside me . . . . . to see I don't mourn.
At Fifty, once more, babies play 'round my knee,
Again, we know children . . .. . . My loved one and me.

Dark days are upon me . . . . . my wife is now dead.
I look at the future . . . . . shudder with dread.
For my young are all rearing . . . . . young of their own.
And I think of the years . . . . . and the love that I've known.

I'm now an old man . ... . . . and nature is cruel.
Tis jest to make old age . . . . . look like a fool.
The body, it crumbles . . . . . grace and vigor, depart.
There is now a stone . . . . where I once had a heart.

But inside this old carcass . . . . . a young guy still dwells,
And now and again . . . . . my battered heart swells.
I remember the joys . . . . . I remember the pain.
And I'm loving and living . . . . . life over again.

I think of the years, all too few . . . .. . gone too fast.
And accept the stark fact . . . . that nothing can last.
So open your eyes, people . . . . . open and see.
Not a crabby old man .. . . Look closer . . . see ME!!

Remember this poem when you next meet 
an older person who you might brush aside 
without looking at the young soul within. 
We will all, one day, be there, too!

"I Can Only Imagine" by MercyMe was sang at my son, Joshua Cole Butler's Funeral in Brownwood, TX.  He was a Christian young man that would help people, give them money when no one else knew, forgave when he was wronged and maybe will play his Bass Guitar in Heaven while praising God.  We're looking forward to seeing you in heaven son.  We love and miss you, but one day...!  Mommy & Daddy, and also in remembrance to Wayne Horton who presided at his funeral.  Looking forward to seeing you both one day.  Mommy and Daddy, Suzette and Dale Butler

Basic Information
Other names
Suzette Brown Butler, Spouse
Christian husband and father trying to serve God faithfully.
I grew up in Alice Texas and attended Alice High School for two years.  After my father had a heart attack, we moved to Milano, TX where I attended Milano High School and graduated. My 
sister in Milano is Lou Graham and my Brother-in-law is Petie Graham.

I attended Southwest Texas State University where I was in Choir, The Madrigal Singers, The Student Senate, President of the Press Club, and Associated Student Representative. I participated in intramural football and for a short period of time volleyball.  I was a Regular at McCarty Student Center which was a Church of Christ gathering place for college Students.  I found my wife there (Suzette), proposed to her, married her and now we have been together 42 years having had four wonderful children.  Unfortunately we lost our middle son Joshua (Josh) at the age of 29 to cancer.

In addition to college, I attended "White's Ferry Rd. School of Biblical Studies" in West Monroe, La.  I was a Preacher, Evangelist in the Church of Christ and The Christian Care Center a non-denominational church.  My wife and I published and edited "Today's Youth Magazine" and we are both published writers.  Suzette and I founded "Victims of Choice" and "Women's Referral Service" a ministry to women who have had Abortions.  I reactivated "Right to Life" chapter in Athens, OH and my wife and I spoke in various cities, universities, and conventions.  

I love to sing and have done "specials" at many churches and venues.  

Other jobs include: Manager of Lumber Yards and Home Centers including 84 Lumber and Contractor's Warehouse.  I also owned a computer store and repair shop in Brownwood, TX where I currently reside named "CompuSolve."

I am currently recovering from a recent (Jan 28, 2015) massive coronary where I had to be life-flighted to Abilene and came close to death.  I have lost forty-six percent of my heart but I am believing and expecting God to fully heal me.

My wife is Suzette Butler who I love and adore and who is my Best Friend.  My childrens names are April, Dace, Joshua (deceased) and Jonathon.

I attend the Early Church of Christ in Early, TX and I love our preacher and shepherds and the rest of the church family dearly.  One of my favorite scriptures is John 13:35, "By this shall they know that you are my disciples, if you have love one for another."

After having a Massive Coronary, where I "lost" 46% of my heart I noticed my voice was raspy and I spoke in a high tone which I had never before done. My Internist referred me to Dr. Dart. She could be defined as a way above average Dr. She diagnosted my problem quickly as a paralyzed vocal chord. This bothered me greatly because singing has been an important part of my life. I have received several awards, was in a C.W. Band and in college I was in several vocal performing groups. I have also sang at many various denominations of churches and other venues. However, not being able to worship in song to G-d is the worst result of my vocal chord's condition. NOW ABOUT DR. DART: At my first appointment with her, as I mentioned earlier, she quickly diagnosed my problem in a very complete, yet understanding and compasionate manner. I have now had two procedures done, which has helped my voice at this time to the point that I can do some singing. I have not had a more long term procedure, but Dr. Dart assures me that we will look down the road. When Dr. Dart walks in the room she brings with her a big smile and fills the room with joy. I find myself looking forward to appointments because of this wonderful, sincere, and positive attitude and demenor. On a scale from 1-10 I must give her a 10. If you want an average Dr. do not go to Dr. Dart. But, if you want a Doctor that is very competent, communicative and friendly demenor, go to her. Cordially, Dale Butler
