Hi Friends,
Just wanted to share something that I received from a dear friend through an email. I know that you will enjoy this information and it just might give you a little more education about the subject matter.

Read the story before watching the video !!

 

A Nice bit of History
Frank  Sinatra considered Kate Smith the best singer of her time, and said that when  he and a million other guys first heard her sing “God Bless  America” on  the radio, they all pretended to have dust in their eyes as they wiped away a  tear or two.Here  are the facts… The link at the bottom will take you to a video showing the  very first public singing of “GOD BLESS AMERICA”. But before you watch it, you  should also know the story behind the first public showing of  the  song.The  time was 1940. America was still in a terrible economic depression. Hitler was  taking over Europe and Americans were afraid we’d have to go to war. It was a  time of hardship and worry for most Americans.This  was the era just before TV, when radio shows  were HUGE,  and American families sat around their radios in the evenings, listening to  their favorite entertainers, and no entertainer of that era was bigger than  Kate  Smith.Kate  was also large; plus size, as we now say, and the popular phrase still used  today is in deference to her, “It ain’t over till the fat lady sings”.

Kate  Smith might not have made it big in the age of TV, but with her voice coming over the radio, she was the biggest star of her  time.

Kate  was also patriotic. It hurt her to see Americans so depressed and  afraid  of what the next day would bring . She had hope for America,  and  faith  in her fellow Americans. She wanted to do something to cheer them up, so she  went to the famous American song-writer, Irving Berlin (who also wrote “White  Christmas”) and asked him to write a song that would  make Americans  feel good again about their country. When she described what she was looking  for, he said he had just the song for her. He went to his files and found a  song that he had written, but never published, 22 years before – way back in  1917. He gave it to her and she worked on it with her studio orchestra. She  and Irving Berlin were not sure how the song would be received by the public,  but both agreed they would not take any profits from God Bless America . Any  profits would go to the Boy Scouts of America. Over the years, the Boy Scouts  have received millions of dollars in royalties from this  song.

This  video starts out with Kate Smith coming into the radio studio with the  orchestra and an audience. She introduces the new song for the very first  time, and starts singing. After the first couple verses, with her voice in the  background still singing, scenes are shown from the 1940 movie, “You’re In The  Army Now.” At the 4:20 mark of the video you see a young actor in the movie,  sitting in an office, reading a paper; it’s Ronald  Reagan.

To this  day, God Bless America stirs our patriotic feelings and pride in our country.  Back in 1940, when Kate Smith went looking for a song to raise the spirits of  her fellow Americans, I doubt whether she realized just how successful the  results would be for her fellow Americans during those years of hardship and  worry….. And for many generations of Americans to follow.

Now  that you know the story of the song, I hope you’ll enjoy it.

Many  people don’t know there’s a lead in to the song since it usually starts with  “God Bless America …..” So here’s the entire song as originally sung…..  ENJOY!

Hi Friends,
Just wanted to wish everyone a Happy New Year. I hope all of you had a great day.
I want to wish all of you the greatest year you ever had during 2015.

This day started out good for my wife, Trudy and I. My  wife cooked a New Years Meal for
me and her. We had planned on a couple of our children and their family coming over to
eat New Years dinner. We found out they were down with the flue and could not come. My
wife cooked all the food that we normally have for New Years Dinner. Me and her sat down
and eat, and it was very good.
My wife ended up making some chicken and pastry and we took it over to our  youngest
daughter’s house for them to have something to eat. We left the food there for them to eat,
we didn’t want to catch the flue from them.

Happy New Year,
God Bless,
James & Trudy Suggs

I have found this to help me reduce stress.

Hello Friends,

The key to success is education and information about things that are unknown, until it is found out.

Talking a little about this, let’s discuss wisdom. Now speaking of wisdom, no one on earth can find it or pay for it.

According to the Bible in Job 28(KJV)
Job 28:12
But where shall wisdom be found? and where is the place of understanding?
Job 28:13
Man knoweth not the price thereof; neither is it found in the land of the living.
Job 28:20
Whence then cometh wisdom? and where is the place of understanding?
Job 28:21
Seeing it is hid from the eyes of all living, and kept close from the fowls of the air.
Job 28:22
Destruction and death say, We have heard the fame thereof with our ears.
Job 28:23
God understandeth the way thereof, and he knoweth the place thereof.
Job 28:24
For he looketh to the ends of the earth, and seeth under the whole heaven;
Job 28:25
To make the weight for the winds; and he weigheth the waters by measure.
Job 28:26
When he made a decree for the rain, and a way for the lightning of the thunder:
Job 28:27
Then did he see it, and declare it; he prepared it, yea, and searched it out.

Listen and read this next verse very careful to get the full understanding of it!

Job 28:28
And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.

Wishing you and your family a Blessed Labor Day Weekend. Hope you enjoyed this information about wisdom.

God Bless,
James Suggs

Another good thing to know about is Protandim.
