More than a friend

5 posts in this topic

I've been think about life and how you never know how many days you have on this earth and how your time is spent day to day on issues of life. Have you been helpful or hurtful to those around you? What kind of impact are you making on those the closest to you? What about the people you meet that you don't know, are they left thinking " he sure was nice are helpful "or "theres something about that guy" are they left with a positive memory? I just lost someone very dear to my heart and there's nothing I wouldn't of done to help him out in anyway. He died March 23rd at 24 years of age, much to soon for anyone, specially him. He was a like a brother to my family and a son to me. He was a U.S. Marine Corps Veteran, with two tours in Iraq, a husband and a father, loved by many. Love to hunt and fish and flex his muscles, tough as they come! Memories of him will last a life time in all our hearts but the loss of him will forever leave a void. He lost all hope, felt all alone even with so many people around him that loved him, he lost hope and we lost someone very dear to our hearts! "For I know the plans I have for you," says the Lord "They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a Hope" without God there is no hope, I failed my friend, don't go a day longer without finding hope in the Lord, it maybe to late!

I have lost a friend very early also. And it seems that sometimes the saying,"Only the good die young" holds so true for a lot of us. As humans we always look and try to find "reasons" and "whys" to fill our voids. But it might just be a simple as it was GOD's plan and there was nothing we could do. There will never be a end to the "what ifs" or "I could haves", but with time, scars heal. Scars heal, life goes on, but scars are permanant, which will always make you think and remember, about the good times and bads. My prayers go out to you, his friends, and family.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
