This is my Doxology. This is my Praise To God.

Oh God of Abraham, when you are about to treat me to a most wonderful spiritual experience .. Once in awhile, just once in this lifetime .. I wish you would whisper into my ear ..

“My little Captain, be aware of your surroundings, I’ve something very special to show you.”

Today’s Rhetorical Question:

Would you rather BELIEVE and be wrong? Or NOT BELIEVE and be wrong?


I sought my soul, But my soul I could not see. I sought my God, But my God eluded me. I sought my brother, And I found all three. William Blake .. 1757 – 1827

On October the 25th 2014 I published a Post titled ..



I will not repeat what I wrote in the above Post. However I hope you will re-visit it.

Patti and I are staying at a local Motel 6 here in the Detroit Metro Area.

DSCN8045[1]Our room is located in the back of the motel. To get ice I have a nice long walk. No biggie. I always enjoy exercise. Our GMC suburban is in the lower left below.

DSCN8042[1]So off this morning I began my trek to get some ice.

DSCN8043[1]Below is a view of my walk from the parking lot. Nothing unusual here.

DSCN8044[1]Hello God! What have we here God!

As I walked past a room with its door open, out of the corner of my eye, I caught a vision of a most amazing scene.

In the micro-second it takes to walk past an open doorway, I saw a gentleman sitting on the edge of his bed. Spread out before him was a most magnificent table setting.

On I continued to get my ice. As I returned to my room I stopped at the open door. I looked into the room. I asked the gentleman ..

“Sir? May I come in and look more closely at your most amazing table setting?”

“Certainly Sir. Please come in. I am honored that you want to see my room.”

DSCN8032[1]I only know him as Curtis. I want you all to meet Curtis.

God speaks to us through others. Look above and look below at Curtis. Tell me God is not present.


Below is what I glimpsed in his Motel 6 room as I passed Curtis’ doorway.

DSCN8029[1]Will you all just experience with me the awe that I felt as I viewed his wonderful table setting up close.

DSCN8035[1]A ‘ table-for-two ‘ set for Curtis and for his visit with God.


DSCN8051[1]Oh yes the 23rd Psalm.



Notice in the below three photos Curtis’ collection of sports caps.



DSCN8039[1]Go Detroit Tigers. Curtis and I talked up a storm about sports.

DSCN8038[1]Look at his air conditioning unit.

DSCN8041[1]Of course I asked Patti to join Curtis and myself.

Do you want The Man!





DSCN8050[1]You have The Man!

With the Greatest Joy!

Patti and Curtis and Cap ..

I really hope that all of you realize just how very special it is that Curtis has so expressed love for GOD in his small room in Motel 6. Maybe I will get to know him more and be able to share more with you in the future.

If the only prayer you say in your entire life is thank you .. It will be enough.  Meister Eckhart

Thank You Oh God of  Abraham for the special unique Gift of Curtis!

      Thanks so much Shaddy. Let me assure you that GOD is and was there in the room with Curtis. God is love and what I saw in the room was pure love. It is something to really be .. ‘ in the channel ‘ .. Smiles .. Cap ..

    This fellow is anticipating God and you walk in. God certainly works in mysterious ways. I know Curtis wasn’t disappointed with you as the Almighty’s fill-in that day.

      You believe .. You don’t believe .. One or the other Shaddy each of us has a choice. I believe that God speaks to us through others. I was just stunned when I saw and when I actually assimilated what I was seeing. You have to actually see what you are looking at. And I saw pure love. No strings attached. Much Joy .. Cap ..
