The Year We Make Contact

outer spaceWhen I was twelve years old a movie came out called, “2010: the year we make contact” and I keep finding myself thinking about that title as we approach a New Year.

The year we make contact. I like that!

And I want it to be the theme of my life in this New Year.

I want to come into greater contact with some of God’s purposes for my life. I want to experience greater boldness in witness and ministry. I want to be more thankful and less self-absorbed. I want to contact the Lord’s presence in ways that I’ve never experienced before.

Just like Nathanael did.

Do you remember him from John 1:47 when Jesus first encountered him and shared with him some prophetic insights about the state of Nathanael’s heart? Jesus said, “Here is an Israelite in whom there is no deceit,” and Nathaniel was so undone that he exclaimed, “Rabbi, you are the Son of God; you are the King of Israel!”

Jesus replied by saying, “You will see greater things than that. Very truly I tell you, you will see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man.”

Let’s make it a collective goal to see “greater things” this year. Let’s position ourselves for a year of contact, where we can more fully and freely run in the ways and purposes of God for 2014 and beyond.

    Hi there my name is Kris and I am a digital marketer. I help my clients sites bring in more traffic by helping their site become the most authoritative to the search engines. Everyone tries to tell you that they will get you on the first page of google next week. Most of the time they are just telling you what you want to hear, but some can actually do it. The only problem is that the tactics they would perform on your site will get on the top of Google quickly but will also eventually get you a penalty from Google as well. Once you have a penalty from Google it is extremely difficult to get on top the search engines ever again.

    I tell you this to be upfront and straight with you. We are looking for long term realsonship with clients and do not wish to tell you what you want to hear. We focus on delivering data driven results to our clients so they really know what is going on and how well they are performing.

    Currently I am offering a free consultation where I will take a look at your site and also at your competitors with you and see what needs to happen to get you to where you want to go. I just want to know if you would be interested in this free consultation.

    The consultation is completely free and there is not any pressure or strings attached or tricksto make you use my services. My thinking is pretty straight forward, I provide a lot of value with these consultations and I know that some will not use my services in the end, which is ok. Others will need my help and wish to use my services. Either way I am always happy to help other business owners understand the changing world of online marketing and how they can beat their competitors.

    Let me know the best number to reach you at and I will be in touch and take a look at your site and your competitors and then provide you with my findings.

    Let me know if you have any questions.

    Thanks,

    Kris Rodgerson

    Is your website converting its visitors into paying clients? That is the goal of most websites, but majority of small-sized to medium sized companies never truly reach that goal.

    Hi! My name is Ed and I am a web expert. I have been working in the web design industry for some time now and know what is and what is not currently working for websites and their designs.

    I believe website should not only represent your company but should be unique, organized, user friendly and interactive but it should also be affordable and easy to maintain. I can provide modernized designs that would perfectly send clear message of what your company, or modify your existing site so that it not only stands out from your competitors but also converts at a higher level.

    I am offering a free consultation where I can show you some of the tips and modifications I have performed on my clients to make a big impact with their online sales. There is no commitment whatsoever to use my services. I offer this information as a way of paying it forward. I find that some people will not use my services but many will because they understand the power of a site that brings in sales.

    Just let me know when you are available to speak and I will be happy to provide you with some suggestions and my analysis on your site.

    Even if we do not end up working together I will at least be able to help you understand what is working in today’s world of web design and answer any questions that you have.

    I look forward to speaking with you.

    Thanks,
    Ed Frez

    Hi there,

    Im Frank, Im a website designer and e-commerce consultant and if Im some what intrusive by getting on your contact forms to reach you to do business, at this point, I would like to sincerely apologize for this informal approach. It sure beats having to play cat and mouse with the gatekeeper. A lot of good opportunities are lost this way.

    Anyway, kidding aside, I just would like to air my two cents about your website as to how its performing. As it is, its marvelous. But you for a fact know that the wicked never rest and that the new will always break ground andbe revealed to attract more sales from the human traffic that youget. The designs I do not only captivate but also maximizes the use of the website by funneling in more sales activity for a company and inculcates a lasting sense of recall, for the advertising aspect.

    I would very much like to interface with you pretty soon as Im giving out FREE ANALYSES /CONSULTATION as to how all this comes about. Please, dont hesitate in responding to me. I only would like to do business, I mean nothing ill. I can assure you, something really good and beneficial for your business will come out of this, if only you would give it a try.

    Looking forward to meeting you. Thank you very much! Have a good one!

    Why Carry a Gun?

    My old Grandpa said to me, ‘Son, there comes a time in every man’s life when he stops bustin’ knuckles and starts bustin’ caps and usually it’s when he becomes too old to take a whoopin’.

    I don’t carry a gun to kill people; I carry a gun to keep from being killed.

    I don’t carry a gun because I’m evil; I carry a gun because I have lived long enough to see the evil in the World.

    I don’t carry a gun because I hate the government; I carry a gun because I understand the limitations of government.

    I don’t carry a gun because I’m angry; I carry a gun so that I don’t have to spend the rest of my life hating myself for failing to be prepared.

    I don’t carry a gun because I want to shoot someone; I carry a gun because I want to die at a ripe old age in my bed and not on a sidewalk somewhere tomorrow afternoon.

    I don’t carry a gun to make me feel like a man; I carry a gun because men know how to take care of themselves and the ones they love.

    I don’t carry a gun because I feel inadequate; I carry a gun because unarmed and facing three armed thugs, I am inadequate.

    I don’t carry a gun because I love it; I carry a gun because I love life and the people who make it meaningful to me.

    Police protection is an oxymoron: Free citizens must protect themselves because police do not protect you from crime; they just investigate the crime after it happens and then call someone in to clean up the mess.

    Personally, I carry a gun because I’m too young to die and too old to take a whoopin’!

    A LITTLE GUN HISTORY

    PLEASE DON’T THINK FOR A MOMENT, THAT THIS COULDN’T HAPPEN IN OUR COUNTRY ALSO !!!!!!

    In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control:

    From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
    ———————–
    In 1911, Turkey established gun control:

    From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

    From 1939 to 1945, a total of 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.
    ———————–

    You won’t see this data on the US evening news, or hear politicians disseminating this information.

    Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens.

    With guns, we are ‘citizens’; without them, we are ‘subjects’.

    During WW II, the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew most Americans were ARMED!

    Gun owners in the USA are the largest armed forces in the World!

    If you value your freedom, please spread this anti-gun control message to all of your friends.

    The purpose of fighting is to win. There is no possible victory in defense.

    The sword is more important than the shield and skill is more important than either.

    SWITZERLANDISSUES A GUN TO EVERY HOUSEHOLD! SWITZERLAND’S GOVERNMENT ISSUES AND TRAINS EVERY ADULT IN THE USE OF A RIFLE.

    SWITZERLANDHAS THE LOWEST GUN RELATED CRIME RATE OF ANY CIVILIZED COUNTRY IN THE WORLD!!!

    IT’S A NO BRAINER! DON’T LET OUR GOVERNMENT WASTE MILLIONS OF OUR TAX DOLLARS IN AN EFFORT TO MAKE ALL LAW-ABIDING CITIZENS AN EASY TARGET.

    I’m a firm believer in the 2nd Amendment! If you are too, please forward this. If you’re not a believer, please reconsider the true facts.
    This is history; not what’s being shown on TV, sanctioned by our illustrious delusional leaders in Washington.
