About Corporal, USMC Timothy Paul Setser, Sr.

It has been asked of me. Why do you say, I love you, so much? I say it to Family, Friends and my brothers and sisters in Christ.

Love is something I would never choose to live without. I have been a Christian since I was very young. The love of God flows through me keeping me warm and content. God’s love is so great it cannot be contained. It has to be shared or it will turn sour. So I gladly share my love with all who will accept it.

I know, as well as many people do, there are many kinds of love. God commands the love and respect I have for my parents. Even if we do not always feel we receive that respect back. It is still commanded of us to show the respect we would expect our children to show us.

The love and respect I have shown the woman in my life, was by choice. Although things did not always work out, I loved with a passion that could only be of God. Passion is a gift from God that should never be taken for granted. To love a woman, to be close to a woman, to give everything you are to a woman, is to feel alive. A woman is the only thing on earth that has ever allowed me to use all my senses at once.

The love for my children is a blessing. To hold a newborn. A little person that is part of you. A gift from God himself. A gift chosen before even I was born. A person that a woman risks her life bringing into this world, and I would give my life to protect them from it. I know one day I will be standing before God and he will ask. I gave you three children, what did you do with them? I feel I better have a good answer.

I was recently blessed with a grandson. The blessings just keep coming. I pray I have shown my kids so much love, that they are able to pass it on. They know God. Through his love they are truly blessed. Their children will be all right.

Family, ironically, can be the hardest for some to say I love you. I have a huge family. Nieces and nephews, aunts and uncles, cousins and in-laws. I consider myself fortunate to have been able to spend time with many of them. I love my family. I can’t always agree or even spend time with some of them, but I love them all.

To tell a friend, I love you, has never been strange to me. Friends in Christ, friends when I worked, fellow Marines, even friends on the computer, some of which I have never even met face to face. To know someone has my back, and I have theirs, no matter what. Friends have talked me through bad times and been there in the good times. They have lifted me up and brought me down to earth. I have no regrets telling a friend I love you.

So love with a glad and open heart. You will be a better person for it.

Who can take a sunrise, Sprinkle it with dew? Cover it in chocolate and a miracle or two The candyman, the candyman can, The candyman can 'cause he mixes it with love and makes the world taste good

Who can take a rainbow, Wrap it in a sigh? Soak it in the sun and make the stra'bry lemon pie The candyman? The candyman can The candyman can 'cause he mixes it with love and makes the world taste good

The Candyman makes everything he bakes Satisfying and delicious. Talk about your childhood wishes. You can even eat the dishes!

Who can take tomorrow, Dip it in a dream? Separate the sorrow and collect up all the cream, The candyman? The Candyman can, the candyman can The candyman can 'cause he mixes it with love and makes the world taste good And the world tastes good 'cause the candyman thinks it should

I remember, in the 70's, sitting with cousin Pam listening to this song. She is a very special person and this is our special song. Love you Pam.


Peter Pan, one of the greatest stories ever told. To be good, to be free, to be happy,

I have felt like a lost boy all my life.  Always refusing to be a pirate, refusing to grow old. Watching over those smaller then myself,
is a great lesson Peter Pan taught all of us lost boys. It must be pure coincidence his number one enemy is named James Hook. 
Always trying to steel his happiness for himself, Hook could never truly be happy. 
The only happiness a pirate can have is fleeting and always on the backs of others.
 Steeling dreams is the job of pirates. 
I am happy in my wonder land.  Yes I refuse to, ever, be a pirate.

The crap in my life

I was talking to a dear friend, just a while ago, about God. The conversation turned to the troubles we have in life as people in the world. An image came into my head of me pushing a wheelbarrow full of manure, you know crap. Walking through this world with all the BS, the crap the stuff this world piles on us, is like pushing a wheelbarrow full of crap up a steep hill.

Now I realized I could suffer, strain and work myself to death pushing this crap around all my life, or I could simply dump it out and push my wheelbarrow, empty of all the crap..

An amazing thing happened when I dumped that heavy load on the side of the road. My load was lightened to the point that I felt great. The smell went away. I felt like running to the top of the hill. After a while, I looked back, to where the pile of manure was and I saw the prettiest flowers.

So, I guess my vision was trying to tell me, if I want to keep all the crap in my life, then its going to be a long hard struggle to get up that hill. But if I dump it out, give it to God, he will make fertilizer out of it and grow something amazing and beautiful. May God bless and keep you all.

 People ask so often, why are we here?     God created Heaven. He filled it with Angels. His most beautiful and powerful Angle was Lucifer.    Now the number of Angles God created outnumber the the grains of sand on earth.   One day Lucifer got it in his head that if he was so much like God, then why shouldn’t he be in charge. When Lucifer confronted God about this, he had one third of the Angels with him.   A war broke out in Heaven between Lucifer and his followers and God with the remaining two thirds of the Angels.     God and his Angels won the war. God created Hell and cast Lucifer and his Angels in it to be judged for their actions. They chose not to live in Gods’ grace, so they suffer in Gods judgement.    
Now loosing a third of his Angels left a lot of vacant space in Heaven. So God made a decision not to create more Angels.  He though another war could happen.   So God said I will make a place and put people there to decide weather or not they want to come to heaven from there and live in Gods grace or go to hell and wait for judgement. This way God would know beforehand weather or not we rely want to be there. This would assure no more trouble in heaven.    
The decision for me is simple, I want to live in Gods grace. Your decision is yours and yours alone. When each of us stand to be judged, I will be in the heaven line. Which line will you choose.

Growing up

 Hey gang, I was having a conversation with my son, the other day. It  led me to the realization that not only does God believe in evolution, he counts on it. If a person is stunted in their natural evolution, if they do not grow, then trouble is inevitable. We must grow up in our hearts and minds, just as we did in our bodies. We evolve according to our path in life. We grow according to what feeds us, our surroundings, our friends, our influences. Our choices determine our path, so it stands to reason, if we make different choices, we can follow a different path. 

There are many young people out there fighting to evolve from young adult to adult. Not understanding, that maybe, they were not trained in the way to be an adult. “Proverbs 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.” Now God knows, not everyone has the same chances, or was taught the same lessons, but, as a young adult or adult, we should have evolved into a self-thinking person. How many people consider themselves an adult, but still doubt themselves? How many still act like children? How many do not respect themselves?

Maybe, as a child, some people didn’t get the proper training. Maybe some were not brought up in the best environment. That’s sad. But you know what? If you are the young adult trying to evolve into an adult, then it is your turn. Your turn to be the influence, and believe me, everything you do influences someone. So, are you going to choose to evolve, or stay a child, young adult? Are you going to choose to accept that you have evolved or stay a child adult? “1 Corinthians 13:11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.” We all make the choice of what kind of adult we will be.

I believe in God. “Joshua 24:15 as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” I chose God’s path, and I chose the Bible as my road map. I give my mom thanks for showing me that path.

The War rages on.

You hear so many people ask why can’t there be peace on earth. There are an ever growing number of people who believe we can have peace. If only we can be better people towards each other. If only we can accept each other. If only we could be more tolerant of each other. Then we can have peace.

(Mathew 24; 5 For many will come in My name, claiming, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. 6 You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. These things must happen, but the end is still to come. 7 Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places).

The war that started in Heaven rages on. It is still being fought here on earth. The troubles we see here on earth are a result of that war. So for people to think they can stop God from trying to defend his people or the Devil from trying to damn the people of the world, they are deceived. God is the most powerful, Satan was second. We are never going to change that no matter what we do. The reason God allows Satan to cause trouble here on earth is for our good. It is for us to be tested and make decisions that need to be made before we enter into Heaven.

I tell my kids, you can’t mess with God stuff. As humans, the big picture stuff is above our pay grade. We are soldiers in the war that rages here on earth, fighting for our Heavenly Father. The war is between God and Satan, big picture stuff, not our business. The soldiering, being a good soldier, following orders, that’s our business. (Joshua 24;15 as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.) To serve, to give service and respect due God as our leader, our protector, our Father. The Bible guides us as a road map would. It also contains a battle plan for God’s people. The more we learn about our part, the better soldier we can become.

(Revelation 20:10 And the devil who had deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and sulfur, into which the beast and the false prophet had already been thrown. There they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.) Did you know the Devil believes in the Bible? He knows what’s coming. He knows his days are numbered. He also knows the lake of fire is real and his fate in it. No one on this planet can change that. No one can change his feelings towards God. The Devil causes problems here on earth because he knows that is the only way he can hurt God. So, the war rages on. People fight and disagree because they choose a side. There will never be peace on earth. And those who choose the wrong side will suffer along with Satan. These are not things I made up. These are things God told us. No matter how much we may want everyone to live in peace, it isn’t our call.
