I can’t go a day without Jesus

I can’t go a day without Jesus!
 
Life is so hard. It is worth living, but at times, it can be painfully difficult.
 
For me, I can’t go a day without Jesus! I can’t imagine trying to navigate this lifetime without Christ. I couldn’t do it without him.
 
I look around me and see multitudes of people, who are trying to deal with life, on their own. I watch them struggle, fail, have broken relationships, and financial ruin.
 
Others are successful for a while. Then the house of cards falls. Their life built on sand falls apart.
 
People without Christ fear death. They are afraid of what might be out there after death. They live in fear. People are living in fear right now because of COVID-19.
 
What about you? Have you received Christ as your Savior? Are you walking in peace or fear?
 
I don’t fear COVID-19! I don’t fear death! I know that I have repented of my sins and trusted in Christ, as my Savior.
 
If you are trying to live your life, without Christ, it won’t work. It’s not supposed to! God made us to walk in relationship with Him. He never meant for us to live our lives apart from Him.
 
Jesus said, in John 10:10, The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.
 
Don’t try to live life without Christ. Instead, live life with Christ, depending on Him for all your needs. Then you’ll have the Abundant Life.
 
Life is hard right now, but don’t you quit!!! Jesus said there would be difficult times. Hang in there my friend. You are going home soon!!!
 
I can’t live a day without Jesus! I pray that you can’t either!!!
 
Wishing all of you a blessed and amazing day!

Losing to Win!!!

How is your life going?  Are you calling the shots and living the life you want to live?  If so, how is it going?

I know one thing.  It is going to go by fast.  Life is so fleeting.

I have a friend, who spent some time with Billy Graham, before his death.  He said he asked Dr. Graham, what was his biggest surprise in life?  The world, famous evangelist replied, “How quickly life has gone by.”  “I remember only yesterday, when I was a twelve-year-old boy, running in the fields of North Carolina.”  “Now I am an old man.”

Life is short.  So it only makes sense, to live a life that is going to count, for all eternity.

How do you do that?  Do you just do the best you can?  Do you just do your own thing and hope it turns out okay at the end?

According to Jesus, there is only one way, to live a life that counts for now, and all eternity.  He said, you must lose your life!

That’s right!  You must die to yourself, and your selfish ambitions, and live for Him.  Jesus said, in Luke 9:24 “For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will save it.”

Jesus says if you want to find your life, you must lose it.  The apostle Paul understood this and wrote, in Galatians 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

You must give up control of your life!  Allow God to direct you, in every area of your life.  Don’t live, focusing only on getting stuff – a nicer car, a bigger house, a big title at work.  If you do, you will lose (waste) your life.

Instead, focus on placing Christ first in your life.  Live, to make a big deal out of Jesus and winning people to His Kingdom.

Jim Elliot got it right.  He gave his life away, as a missionary, to reach the Waodoni tribe, in Ecuador.  He was killed, by the tribe, at the age of 29.  At first, some people thought his life was wasted.  However, years later, the entire tribe, went on to receive Christ as their Savior!  Jim’s life will be remembered and admired for all eternity.

His life reflected, his famous quote – “He is no fool, who gives what he cannot keep, to gain what he cannot lose.”

What will your story be?  When your short life is over, will you be pleased with how you decided to live?  You can be!  Do what Billy Graham, Paul and Jim Elliot did. Give your life away to Christ!  You’ll be glad you did.

Wishing all of you a blessed and amazing day!

Ken

Jesus is my Savior – Not my Religion

What do you want today?  Do you want a Savior or a Religion?

A lot of people around the world practice a religion.  They follow a man-made set of rules, that supposedly will bring them closer to their God. or leader.  They are promised, that by following these rules, they have a chance to get to paradise or a good spot in eternity.  No guarantees, but a least a chance.

Does that sound interesting to you?  Worth spending your life following? Worth risking eternity?

So many people are, and have been mislead, by people who claim to be religious leaders.  How tragic!

There are so very sincere people, who are devout followers, of various religions.  Sadly their religion or their religious leaders are leading down a path of destruction.

Many people, years ago, sincerely believed that the world was flat.  We now know that the world is round, and that they were wrong.  They weren’t bad people.  They were just wrong.  You can be sincerely wrong!  And wrong choices about how to get to heaven will have eternal consequences.

Placing your faith in Jesus Christ, is the only way to get to heaven.  Receiving His free gift, of eternal life, through His shed blood, on a cruel cross is your only way to gain eternal life.

John 3:16 tells us, “For God so loved the world,  ( YOU ) that He gave His only Son, ( JESUS )  that whoever believes in Him, shall not perish, ( Go to HELL ) but have everlasting life.  ( HEAVEN )

So you need to make a choice today.  Do you want a Savior or do you want one of the world’s religions?

I have made my choice.  I choose the Savior!  I choose Jesus!

My friends, Jesus loves you!  Choose Jesus!  Choose to live with the One who loves you and wants to spend now and all eternity with you.

Please obey Him.  He told you and me, to share Him with all the world.  The world needs Jesus, not religion!

Wishing all of you a blessed and amazing day, as you walk with Jesus!!!

Launching Ken Bailey Ministries

An Interview with Ken Bailey

1: Could you share a little bit about your background?

I was raised in Texas and had a normal upbringing.   My mother always had us in church.  Every time the doors were open, we were required to be there.   We were a blue collar family, with my dad working at a gas plant and doing some farming on the side.  

Sports were a huge part of my childhood.  I loved to play football, basketball, baseball, etc..

I graduated with my bachelor’s degree from Hardin-Simmons University.   I then went on and got a master’s degree from Baylor University.  I went to graduate school again, at Houston Baptist University, and earned an administrator’s license.

I am married to my amazing wife, Sue, and we have two, incredible children and five grandchildren.

I taught school and coached sports teams for many years.  I then moved up into school administration.   After that, I helped plant a church, started a restaurant, and was a stock broker, for a couple of years.   All at the same time!   That was a lot of work!!!

I then moved into full-time ministry, becoming an associate pastor and also helping to run a nonprofit.  I then became a head pastor at a couple of churches. 

I then became the founder, of a nonprofit named Alms International.  People can visit our website at: almsinternational.com.  You can find us on Facebook at: Alms International.  We help feed, clothe and provide financial assistance, to needy people, around the world.  We share Christ with them and tell them how much God loves them.

I love doing evangelism and taking overseas mission trips.  It brings me great joy to share Jesus with others.  I take tour groups to Israel and love being in the Holy Land.  I always make it a point to go and provide food and financial assistance, to Holocaust survivors, single mothers with children and to new immigrants to Israel.

2: When did you become a believer in Christ?

I came under the conviction of the Holy Spirit when I was eleven years old.   I reached the age of accountability and I knew that if I died, I was on my way to hell.   I resisted the Spirit’s urging, for me to get saved, for over a year.  Finally, when I was twelve, I made a public profession of faith, in Jesus Christ, and was born again.  It felt like I had a hundred pound weight come off my back.  When I was baptized, I felt the Holy Spirit surge through my body and I went on, to immediately begin witnessing to others, so they would get saved.

3: At what moment did you realize you had a calling from the Lord and how was it revealed to you?

At age 25, I took my first teaching and coaching job in west Texas.  I attended a prophecy conference, in Abilene, Texas, with a new colleague of mine.  His name was Pat McGee and he recently passed away.  He was a cheerful, amazing man of God and my first spiritual mentor!

One day, after the prophecy conference was over, Pat told me that he had message from God for me!  I was stunned!  Someone was going to prophesy over me.  

Pat told me that God had a special call on my life and that God would move me around a lot, to minister to people and do work for His Kingdom, and leading others to salvation in Christ.   I was honored that Pat had shared this word, from the Lord, with me.  I didn’t want to move around a lot, but Pat’s prophetic message to me has turned out to be true.  

I am grateful that God has allowed me to minister to many people.  I have been used by the Lord, to lead people to Christ and to help fix broken places where the Lord has taken me.  

I have been studying prophecy, for over forty years now!   My uncle, Perk Carrier, taught a Sunday evening class, at our church and taught the book of Revelation to us.   He also taught us from the book, The Late Great Planet Earth, by Hal Lyndsey.  

This planted a seed in my heart, to study prophecy the rest of my life.   I was fascinated by the fact that Jesus, was one day going to come back and take me to heaven, in the rapture.   Today, we all live in the final generation of Christ followers, who are the chosen one’s, who will be raptured soon and meet Christ in the clouds.   

In my 30’s, God began to speak to me and tell me that I would meet people that day, who I had know plans to see.   I would start my day and sure enough, sometime later in the day, I would see the very person God told me I would see.  I thought, “this is crazy!” God is speaking to me and I am learning to hear His voice.   These words, from the Lord, would just come to my mind.  I did not hear Him through my ears.   God was training me to hear His voice.

In my 40’s, I began to go on mission trips to Africa and other places.  I would also make my first trip to Israel, going with Dr. David Jeremiah to help on his first trip to Israel, with a tour group.  I was so happy to finally go to Israel!   Israel captured my heart and I wanted to go as often as possible.  I have loved Israel since I was a teenager.

One day, I felt led to pray to God and ask Him for the gift of prophecy.  I had been studying prophecy for thirty years and I wanted to know the truth, from God, as I wanted to teach, about end-time prophecy, around the world.   I was blessed, as God answered my prayer and gave me the gift of prophecy.  

However, shortly after that, God revealed to me that He had given me additional gifts.   If you remember the story of Solomon, he asked for discernment, in administering justice, as he ruled over the people of Israel. God was so pleased, with Solomon’s pure request, that He decided to bless him with the additional gifts of wealth and honor.  

The same thing happened to me.   God gave me the additional gifts of being one of His servants, a prophet, and the gift of evangelism.   Now, I have the gift of prophecy, to understand end-time events and I also have the prophetic and evangelistic gifting, to go along with it.  

I love serving God.  It is an honor to be His servant and give my life away, in service, to our great King.  I want the people of the world to repent, believe on the substitutionary death of Christ, on their behalf, and be baptized and receive the Holy Spirit. 

 

MINISTRY QUESTION

4: You have done many different things over the past decades.  You have led large ministries, in the US, which have had a global influence.  You are the founder of Alms International; you have been pastoring several churches.  What season are you in at this moment?

The season that I have been in recently, is to wait on the Lord until he tells me to go public, with my prophetic and prophecy gifts.   I have been preparing, to tell the world that Christ is soon coming, to rapture His true followers.   Then the terrible, seven-year tribulation will begin on the earth.  

Over the past several years, I have had hundreds of signs, wonders and miracles occur in my life. 

On March 1, 2020, God gave me a great sign, that it was now time for me to go public, to the world, with the messages and visions that He has given me over the years.   I also received another great sign, from the Lord, on March 20, 2020, confirming that just as Jesus went public with His ministry, at age 30, it was now time for me to go public, with the work that the Lord had for me, to do for His Kingdom.   I will tell of these great signs, in future video interviews and perhaps a book, if the Lord wants me to write one.  

My first, great, miraculous vision occurred on April 9, 2004.  I was up late that Thursday night, seeking the Lord, and He gave me a vision that was tied to Dietrich Bonhoeffer and the anniversary of his death.  God gave me this vision and also honored Bonhoeffer, on the 59th anniversary, of his martyrdom.   

I will tell this story, on video, in the future.  It is an incredible miracle and led me to eventually go to work with Dr. David Jeremiah, in San Diego, at his Christian school there.

I am so blessed and I must tell you, that I receive daily signs, wonders and miracles from the Lord.   Even this morning, April 6, 2020, I was to be on a phone call to Israel at 7:00 MST, in the U.S..  The Lord told me, before the call, “your landline will ring, while you are on the phone call to Israel.”   I was to talk, to a nonprofit, in Israel, about raising more funds to provide for the needs of Holocaust survivors.  

Sure enough, before my call from Israel was over, the landline rang.  I didn’t answer it, but it was from a good friend of mine, named Roy, calling me early this morning.   Later, on this same day, the Lord told me that a young woman, who I have mentored for the past three years, would contact me today.  Just now, as I am even doing this interview, she texted me.   I have learned to hear God’s voice!!! 

I am so blessed to have the Lord speak to me!  As the prophets of old have said, in the books in the Bible – “The word of the Lord came to me.”   That’s what happens with me. He just speaks to me, in my mind, each day!  

God has given me messages to share with the citizens of the world.  He has also given me messages to give to world leaders and the people of various nations.   The Lord has revealed to me, that we are now entering the time of sorrows that Jesus mentioned in the Bible.   With the coronavirus, the world is weeping, grieving and many people are dying.  Yet, as bad as this is, the coming tribulation will be much worse!

Oh, how I love our great and mighty God!  All the praise, honor and glory go to Him.  I am nothing!   I am just an ordinary man and no credit, for these spiritual gifts, will ever go to me.   They are from the Lord!!!    

James 1:17 says, “Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.”

I have nothing to boast about!   All of my spiritual gifts come from the Father!   Like Paul, I wish to boast, of our Heavenly Father and our Lord and Savior – Jesus Christ!!!

PROPHETIC WORD

5: What is the message, that you feel the Lord places on your heart, for the world to hear?

I have many messages, from the Lord, to share with the world and world leaders.   The most important one is this:  God has begun the countdown, to the rapture of Christ’s church!  There is only a short time left on earth, for his true, born-again followers.  Life, as we have known it, will soon be over.  Yes, the end is now coming!!!

All true followers, of Jesus Christ, will soon be raptured and taken up to heaven, just as the Bible says, in I Thessalonians 4:16-18, “For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. Therefore encourage one another with these words.”  

I urge everyone, from all the nations of the world, to repent from their sins, call on the Lord to save them, get baptized and receive the Holy Spirit.  This is called being born again.  It is what Jesus said, in John 3:3 – Jesus answered him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”    

Time is running out!  If you are not born again, you will go through the tribulation and it will literally be hell on earth.  It is very likely that you will die during the seven-year tribulation.

The choice is yours – receive Christ, as your Lord and Savior or spend eternity, in a place called hell, because you rejected Christ!  I beg you to choose Christ today!!!

SPEAKING ENGAGEMENTS

6:  When Churches or Ministries, would like to invite you for an interview, or to speak at their congregation and conferences, how can they reach you?

I would be delighted to speak at churches, various ministry events; both youth and adult about end-time prophecy and the prophetic messages and visions that the Lord has given me.  I am also willing to do, in-person and telephone interviews, with organizations, networks and the media.  

If I am asked to travel, I will ask that my travel expenses be paid for and that an honorarium, love offering, or speaking fee, be made available to me.  I have my wife, that I want to provide for, and bills to pay, as anyone else does.  Modest hotel accommodations are fine with me.  I want all of us to be good stewards with the Lord’s money.

I would prefer that Churches, Ministries, organizations and the media, make contact with me, by email first.  This way, I can screen those who contact me and not give my phone number out to the public.  I love everyone, but I simply do not have time to talk, on the phone, or respond to every email that is sent to me, even if it is from someone who just simply wants to let me know they are praying for me.  I appreciate your prayers and support!!!

Everyone can reach out to me, on Facebook, at Ken Bailey Ministries.  Thanks for your understanding!  May all of you know how much God loves you!!!

My ministry email is: kenbaileyministries@protonmail.com.

May the Lord bless each and everyone of you!!!

Safe in the Storms of Life!

Safe in the Storms of Life

A grateful family survived a deadly tornado that tore through parts of Alabama last month. Their whole house was taken away in the storm, but they were not harmed after finding shelter in their grandmother’s prayer closet. In fact, the prayer closet was the only part of the home that was not demolished!

Unfortunately, 22 people died when the tornado hit the Alabama community. But, by the grace of God, this family was not hurt. The amazing image of the grandma’s prayer closet that was left standing was shared on Facebook by Jason Smith, a member of the response team in the community.

“Listen to me please. I just left a family who survived the tornado in this house and the only left standing is this closet. It’s the grandmother’s prayer closet, and the whole family survived,” explains Jason. “Are you kiddin me!!! My God is awesome!!! Shout somebody!”

Our God is awesome and what an incredibly inspiring thing to see how He protected this family!   

My friends, what storms are you going through in life right now?  Is a relationship falling apart?  Is there not enough money to pay the bills? 

Even in life’s most difficult moments, God has us all in the palm of His hand. We are safe when we put our hope and trust in Him. Like it says in Isaiah 41:10, “Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”

Almighty God will make a way for you, even while you are dealing with the storms of this life!  Trust Him today!  He is working behind the scenes, to provide for you and direct your path!!!

Remember, Christ is Risen and He overcame the storms in His life!!!

Wishing all of you a blessed and amazing day!!!

Ken Bailey

When the Rubber Hits the Road!!!

It can be easy, to be a Christian, when the good times are rolling.  It can be so hard to be a Christian, when times are tough.  I mean really tough.  The money for the month has already run out.  You just had a relationship fall apart.It can be easy, to be a Christian, when the good times are rolling.  It can be so hard to be a Christian, when times are tough.  I mean really tough.  The money for the month has already run out.  You just had a relationship fall apart.

It can be easy, to be a Christian, when the good times are rolling.  It can be so hard to be a Christian, when times are tough.  I mean really tough.  The money for the month has already run out.  You just had a relationship fall apart.

 I could go on and on, but I know you get it.  Sometimes life is really hard!

What do you do, when your world starts to fall apart?  Who or what do you turn to?

We often make it more complicated than it has to be.  It could be really simple, if we would just do two things.  Trust and obey!

Trust that God is going to take care of you and get you through, whatever the difficulty is.  Trust, that He is really there and working behind the scenes for you.

Next, obey and believe in His promises.  He cannot lie.  He said He’d never leave you or forsake you.  He said that He would supply all of your needs.  So tie a knot in your rope and hang on.  Hang on to God and His faithfulness.

When the Rubber Hits the Road, and you have to live out your faith, even in hard times, are you gonna keep the faith?  Anyone can be a Christian, when the skies are blue.  It is when tough times come, that our faith gets tested.

God will make a way!  Your job is to Trust and Obey!  Do that today.

Wishing all of you a blessed and amazing day!

A Christmas Story

A Christmas Story

In September 1960, I woke up one morning with six hungry babies and just 75 cents in my pocket. Their father was gone. The boys ranged from three months to seven years; their sister was two. Their Dad had never been much more than a presence they feared. Whenever they heard his tires crunch on the gravel driveway they would scramble to hide under their beds.

He did manage to leave $15 a week to buy groceries. Now that he had decided to leave, there would be no more beatings, but no food either. If there was a welfare system in effect in southern Indiana, at that time, I certainly knew nothing about it.

I scrubbed the kids until they looked brand new and then put on my best homemade dress. I loaded them into the rusty old 51 Chevy and drove off to find a job. The seven of us went to every factory, store and restaurant in our small town. No luck.

The kids stayed, crammed into the car and tried to be quiet while I tried to convince whomever would listen that I was willing to learn or do anything. I had to have a job.

Still no luck.

The last place we went to, just a few miles out of town, was an old Root Beer Barrel drive-in that had been converted to a truck stop. It was called the Big Wheel. An old lady named Granny owned the place and she peeked out of the window from time to time at all those kids.

She needed someone on the graveyard shift, 11 at night until seven in the morning. She paid 65 cents an hour and I could start that night. I raced home and called the teenager down the street that baby-sat for people. I bargained with her to come and sleep on my sofa for a dollar a night. She could arrive with her pajamas on and the kids would already be asleep. This seemed like a good arrangement to her, so we made a deal.

That night, when the little ones and I knelt to say our prayers, we all thanked
God for finding Mommy a job. And so I started at the Big Wheel.

When I got home in the mornings I woke the baby-sitter up and sent her home with one dollar of my tip money-fully half of what I averaged every night.

As the weeks went by, heating bills added another strain to my meager wage.

The tires on the old Chevy had the consistency of penny balloons and began to leak. I had to fill them with air on the way to work and again every morning before I could go home. One bleak fall morning, I dragged myself to the car to go home and found four tires in the back seat.

New tires!

There was no note, no nothing, just those beautiful brand new tires. Had angels taken up residence in Indiana? I wondered. I made a deal with the owner of the local service station. In exchange for his mounting the new tires, I would clean up his office. I remember it took me a lot longer to scrub his floor than it did for him to do the tires. I was now working six nights instead of five and it still wasn’t enough.

Christmas was coming and I knew there would be no money for toys for the kids. I found a can of red paint and started repairing and painting some old toys. Then I hid them in the basement so there would be something for Santa to deliver on Christmas morning. Clothes were a worry too. I was sewing patches on top of patches on the boys pants and soon they would be too far gone to repair.

On Christmas Eve the usual customers were drinking coffee in the Big Wheel. These were the truckers, Les, Frank, and Jim, and a state trooper named Joe. A few musicians were hanging around after a gig at the Legion and were dropping nickels in the pinball machine. The regulars all just sat around and talked through the wee hours of the morning and then left to get home before the sun came up.

When it was time for me to go home at seven o’clock on Christmas morning I hurried to the car. I was hoping the kids wouldn’t wake up before I managed to get home and get the presents from the basement and place them under the tree. (We had cut down a small cedar tree by the side of the road down by the dump.) It was still dark and I couldn’t see much, but there appeared to be some dark shadows in the car-or was that just a trick of the night?

Something certainly looked different, but it was hard to tell what. When I reached he car I peered warily into one of the side windows. Then my jaw dropped in amazement. My old battered Chevy was filled full to the top with boxes of all shapes and sizes. I quickly opened the driver’s side door, scrambled inside and kneeled in the front facing the back seat.

Reaching back, I pulled off the lid of the top box. Inside was a whole case of little blue jeans, sizes 2-10! I looked inside another box: It was full of shirts to go with the jeans. Then I peeked inside some of the other boxes: There were candy and nuts and bananas and bags of groceries.

There was an enormous ham for baking, and canned vegetables and potatoes. There was pudding and Jell-O and cookies, pie filling and flour. There was a whole bag of laundry supplies and cleaning items. And there were five toy trucks and one beautiful little doll.

As I drove back through empty streets as the sun slowly rose on the most amazing Christmas Day of my life, I was sobbing with gratitude. And I will never forget the joy on the faces of my little ones that precious morning.

Yes, there were angels in Indiana that long-ago December. And they all hung out at the Big Wheel truck stop.

Friend, I do not know what your needs are right now, but God does. Call out to Him in prayer and lay your needs before your All-Powerful, Heavenly Father. He loves you and can meet your every need, just as He did for this single mother, with six kids.

I hope you have a great Christmas and I pray that you have a blessed day, as you trust God, to meet all of your needs!!! (John 3:16)

Life is Hard!

Hard LifeHave you learned what I have learned? Life is hard!

You grow up as a kid and life seems so easy most of the time. As you get older, you get exposed to pain, death, failures and some bad experiences.

You get wounded by this world. Life hurts sometimes. For some of you, all the time!

Many of you are really hurting right now. Maybe money is tight, you lost your job, or you are in a relationship that is going bad. Don’t quit! Don’t give up! Take your broken heart to Christ and ask Him to help you, in your time of crisis.

Too often, I think we all make the mistake, of trying to make this world heaven. We try to create our happy, little world, where life on earth, is just going to be paradise. But this is a mistake. This is not heaven and we are going to go through some tough times in this world. That’s a fact!

Some people just give up and take their own lives. This takes them out of here, but just creates even more pain, for their loved ones and friends who are left behind.

I do agree that life is hard. However, I do think that life is worth living! A lot of people are taught, that once you become a Christian, life will be smooth sailing. That simply isn’t true.

God never promised to give us an easy life. Christ and His disciples certainly didn’t have easy lives. No, God promised to walk with us through the storms of life. He said He would never leave us or forsake us.

God uses the storms, of this life, to shape us into the image of His Son. We are exposed to the refiner’s fire. A coal under pressure, over time, becomes a diamond.

Never forget this! All of the difficulties we deal with, in this lifetime, are temporary. A better day is coming. Heaven is coming! Let that encourage you today!!!

Life is hard, but God is faithful. Go have a great day, knowing God has you in His hands! He, and His angels, are watching over you, at this very moment!

Please share this, with your friends and family members, and give them hope and encouragement!

Wishing all of you a blessed and amazing day!!!
