"I'll be there before the next teardrop falls" - Freddy Fender

"It's your happiness that matters most of all
But if he ever breaks your heart
If the teardrops ever start
I'll be there before the next teardrop falls"

Lyrics - Ben Peters & Vivian Keith
Performed by Freddy Fender

"Worry is the match that can ignite fear into a phobia" - Unknown

"Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul; rather be afraid of GOD, who can destroy both body and soul in hell"
- Jesus

What is the soul?

What is the most important thing you and I have?

Irrespective of your religion, this 42 minute video will explain the difference between our will, body, mind and soul

What is fear?
An unpleasant emotion caused by the threat of danger, pain or harm. A feeling of anxiety concerning the outcome of something or the safety of someone.

Fear is learned. We aren't born afraid of anything or anyone. 
Don't allow someone or something to make you afraid.

GOD commands us to fear and also forbids us to fear

Here are some very interesting verses about fear and how to overcome it.   

What does it mean to fear the LORD?
To Honour and Respect, to live in Awe of HIS power
Job 28:28 - The fear of the Lord - that is wisdom and to shun evil is understanding
Proverbs 1:7-9 - The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline

Fear of Man versus fear of GOD
Proverbs 29:25 - Fear of man will prove to be a snare, but whoever trusts in the LORD is kept safe

Fear GOD
Isaiah 8 11-15
      Fear can be overcome by Faith
      John 6:18-19
      Matthew 14:22-32

      Why I must not fear death
      Luke 9:23-27

      Fear prevents us from speaking for Jesus
      John 12:42-43
      Jesus speaks
      Luke 12:1-10

Listening to Gordon Lightfoot and painting Harbour at Lunenburg

Lunenburg will always be a very special place to us. 
It's the hometown of the legendary schooner, the Bluenose

This is one way of using an old credit card after you have cut it up!

With friends at the 2017 Canadian International Autoshow

Porsche 911 GT3 Cup

This is the Aston Martin AM-RB 001 hypercar

1987 Lotus 99T/5 with a Honda engine driven by the great Brazilian F1 driver Ayrton Senna

Ferrari 312 T3 driven by the Canadian racing driver Gilles Villeneuve

This is where you keep your lunch box when you drive a Pagani Huayra

This Aston Martin reminds me of James Bond

The Ferrari F40 was built to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Ferrari.

This is my 1987 model below!
(1/18 scale)

Shaken, not stirred
Aston Martin DB5

Don't miss the licence plates on this Aston Martin DB5
BMT 216A is the same as in the 1964 James Bond film Goldfinger

Everyone loves the Alfa Romeo and wants to touch it

If you want to step into (or out of) this Lincoln Navigator, you need a garage that has a high ceiling. 
I know my rich friends in the Middle East will love stepping into (no pun intended) this luxury concept!

Love this paint job on the Mercedes AMG GT R
It's called the AMG green hell magno

More cars from earlier Autoshows
