THOUGHTS ON A BRAIN DEAD MONDAY

Usually I do a long “spiritual” post on Monday about something I’ve been thinking about … but today I’m brain dead! It was a long weekend, and I’m overdue for a vacation.

Here are a few things running through my mind…

  • I’m thinking about sex. Got your attention? I’m going to do some posts soon on the subject of sex. There are so many misconceptions about sex today, and sadly, we avoid the subject like the plague. Society has taken sex and made it everything but what God really intended it to be. Sex is a gift from God, something to give thanks for and something two married people should never be ashamed of. God talks about it in our bibles and even devotes one whole book to the subject. More later.

  • The weekend was good. We celebrated Lea’s birthday Saturday by having a garage sale (I’m so romantic). It was her idea. We did find time to have a little party Saturday night. Supper out and then brownies that the boys made. We gave her the afternoon out for a pedicure and then flowers for her flower beds. All in all I think she enjoyed the day. She wants me to say thanks to you all for the birthday wishes you sent her way.

  • I’m doing a funeral (a celebration of life) for an awesome lady today. Jeanene Johnston, a wonderful Christian lady who has directly and indirectly affected many lives. Her husband is “Coach Charlie” who coached high school football in the state of Texas nearly all his life. Jeanene gained her victory in the Lord this past Friday after a 20 year battle with breast cancer. Twenty years ago when they discovered cancer, they told her to get her house in order, that she didn’t have much time. Twenty wonderful years later, she showed everybody how much of a fighter she was. She enjoyed quality of life and a wonderful sense of humor right up to her death. I’ll never forget when I was diagnosed with cancer, Jeanene was the first person I wanted to talk to. I knew she knew what I was feeling. She gave great advise. She and Charlie didn’t just live these last 20 years together, they “really lived” these last 20 years together. The last 5 months of her life she was pretty much confined to a hospital bed in her home. But everyday, she and Charlie would pray together, study their bible together, read books about heaven together and listen to sermons on Cd’s together. They grew closer spiritually in the last 5 months than they ever had. My prayer is simple. I want Jeanene’s courage and Charlie’s love. She was a fighter and Charlie took such awesome care of her. I pray that I will always be as faithful, loving and good to Lea as Charlie has been to Jeanene over they last few years when she got so sick. Today’s funeral will be a celebration simply because … Charlie was the apple of Jeanene’s eye, but Jesus was the King of her heart.

  • I need to go take a shower, put on a suit and go love on a family who’s sad today. Say a prayer for them if you get a little time today.

Thanks for reading ~Trey

    Trey,
    I think your posts on sex will be intersting and am looking forward to reading on what you have to say and how many responses you have in regaurd to it.

    On another note, as a minister I enjoy doing weddings and funerals for people who have been really faithful to God. Funerals for the faithful are so much fun because there is so much joy. So much to say and talk about that so positive about their life and what we can look forward to when we see them again in Heaven.

    I pray that God will bless your day and week.

    I think this is the quote of the day: “Charlie was the apple of Jeanene’s eye, but Jesus was the King of her heart.” So sweet!

    It’ll be interesting to see what kind of google searches lead people to your site after you do some posts on sex. (o;

    Sex – Garage Sales – Funerals

    You truly are the modern Renaissance Man.

  4. Liz Moore says:

    I’m looking forward to your next topic. Sex is something that needs to be talked more about from God’s perspective. To adults as well as teens.

    I said a prayer for the Johnston family and for you. My heart goes out to you all.

  5. Marie says:

    Praying for the family! How amazing it must have been to know them. They touched me just reading a little about them.

    Looking forward to your next topic!

    wow trey I dont know what to say i found this blog randomly and am very happy I guess is the word to find some person out of the infoabyss who has a positive radiant love emanating message ,I am glad to know that you are out there and happy b-day to your wife Lea. 37 is also around the corner for myself as well the last day of july bound this leo to the world of man yet the lion is stronger within me then the moral senses of mankind , therein lies my kick in the pants by your blog .I am a satanist/paganist/heathenist type of fella who truly believes in the laws of nature o ver the laws os man or god , to me mother nature the living entity on wich we take so much from and give back nothing but pain , greed , death ,and hatred , the truth is i see the world through my heart and gut instinct and on ocassion my brain fires off a round or two but that allways get’s me in trouble because the questions I ask are so simple and the the answers I give to the 4 or 5 questions I usually get as answers dont mesh with the thoght process they are bound to (still with me? ) Now back to the satanapagaheatha thing … I do not have rituals , spells , books , jewlry, alters , hatred , anger ,insecurity , or any of that alistder crowley , anton Legay(sorry I coundn’t help that one) levay bull crap in my life what I do have is the instinctual distrust and disgust that fills my heart my gut and sometimes my brainwhen it comes to religion especially cathlocism, christianity ,and all the factual evidence through the history of time that has shown how un-christian it has been and how zealotry , hypocrisy , and blatant abuses on children , other beliefs , and the killing and war that has been done in the name of god how can this be made into some form of rationality that makes sense to some one who loves mother earth , loves his life , his friends and family and cares for the suffering of others yet would murder a person who abused any child with no thought of god , court ,jail or forgive that person for his crime , Hypocrisy is the other big blind rage trigger in this cat especially the lies of govt. police corruption ,and the priests(spiritual leeches) who commit the crime ,and even worse the Serpents of the light who cover up and reassign the lowly leeches to another fresh stream in some unsuspecting place like nothing ever happened Foriving the sinner who has no soul is forging your self for having no connection to god his glory or the eternal life in the kingdom of heaven, and that seems to be the case through the bloody bitter sands of time to me ,I can not will not ever understand the thermal dynamics involved in these spiritual cancers that religion is to the basic evolution of spirituality and mankind let alone how the priests who choose to shuffle the most morally corrupted forms of parasitic insects into the hearts and lives of people who seek that basic concept of love in gods house with their family and community and of course the sacrifices and suffering of Jesus christ , how much more simple could it be . and as sheep the wolves begat the lamb and the lamb with the purest of innocence and desire to love and seek gods glory stumbles in to the slaughter house and for the fleeting moments of time before they are ripped and torn through the perversiopns and failings of man kind they see the true face of god -cold -distant and unspeakably vile. that thoght brings tears to mty eyes and venom to my heart …I thank you trey for being out there in my dark and ever churning world where one sees the world as it is and wants it to be something else something simple something free something safe for the little ones who just want to be loved and live life with out the pain and suffering that we leave them and our beloved mother earth in our arrogance and greed and choices made to follow blindly the leaders hwo have eyes to see whatthe others see not .. I wish you more of whatever you allreadfy have because you are doing something right and it makes me happy its really the only word i can describe ithe feeling as I read your blog now I’m off to more of my war /conspiracy /hate / killing ,slayer blasting,potsmoking horror show i have cometo live with —from the depths bloodbath357@somewhereoutthere

    I’m thinking of a number.

    Brain dead and thinking about sex…coincidence…I think not (at least not for me)!

    It is wonderful to be able to celebrate peoples lives and know when we see them again it will be a true celebration!

  9. jel says:

    Trey- will be thinking and say prayer for them,

    and as for your next post on that is something we just don’t talk about , that was the way I was rised up !

  10. The Preacher's Household: says:

    I wish you well on the sex posts. I’m with Lisa on thinking you will get even more interesting readers – and good for them – they will be blessed by being here.
    Looking forward to it.

    Thanks for your prayers today. It was a packed house. I was honored to say some kind words about a wonderful lady.

  12. Matt says:

    Trey you know something that we have not done in a looong time, at least in Hawley, is honor those that have great marriages. You know I think it appropriate that you teased us with your next big topic and told us of a marriage that worked.

    Trey, When I first read, “I’m thinking about sex” my first thought was, “Noooooooooooooo” just kidding!!

    After reading about the lady that had a 20 year battle with cancer, it was like a slap in the face. I sometimes forget that God has blessed me with more years; I want to celebrate every one of them.

    bloodbath357@somewhereoutthere,

    I’m so glad you posted here. Ever heard the saying, “have you ever danced with the devil in the pale moon light?” well I have heard of it and danced it! It is not a dance I like to dwell upon. When you experience satan up close and personal, in your heart of hearts you grasp with all your might something more and when you finally find that something more, God you grasp Him with both hands and hang on for dear life. My prayers are with you tonight!

    Well, I like you too Trey and it is largely because you are so real and human with the love you show.

    So, you gonna travel east to teach my class of 7th graders about sex? I think they probably need what you have to say more than what I teach them. I teach them sexual and asexual reproduction. You say sex and they think boy/girl “doing it”. Then they find out the whole world “does it” -and in some strange ways.

    I have this great book called Dr. Tatiana’s Sex Advice to All Creation. I could really tell you some interesting stories about hermaphroditic yellow slugs getting it on! They only get to be male once and female from then on for the rest of their lives.
