    THE SIDNEY ST. JAMES SHOW

    EPISODE 20 – WHAT IT’S LIKE TO BE A CEMETERY ENTHUSIAST or A TOMBSTONE TOURIST – A True Family History Story

    JUNE 2021

    As one who has studied genealogy for decades, I suppose you can also call me a cemetery enthusiast. I’ve learned the many ways people around the world honor their dead to put the pieces together across the “pond.” Take the moss-covered mausoleums of Edinburgh to the candle-lit cemeteries around the lands in Italy. In my studies of overseas family members, particularly those living in Rastede and Oldenburg, Germany, and in Jerusalem, I learned of the small stones placed on Jewish graves in Jerusalem and even the walls of urns located in Japan. There’s so much that can be learned from wandering through cemeteries with shady paths that continue to invite us, addicted genealogists, to meander and read the epitaphs to those gone before us.

    Tombstones often include data in addition to birth and death dates. For example, some memorials contain relationships with parents, spouses, and children. Sometimes the headstones have decorations that include symbols or words about occupations, possibly the cause of death, membership in religious organizations, or even their general philosophies of life, providing essential details into the lives. These are so important because I never settle for a born and death date. That really doesn’t tell me about the person.

    For many women and children who died before 1850 and children born and died between census enumerations or before vital records were kept, a cemetery may provide the only description of their life.

    Episode 21: A Tribute to Father's Day

    To my two girls, who are grown-up ladies now. Today, we will go and have Father's Day at a restaurant in Georgetown. Now get this, one will say, "do you remember Dad when you walked up the sidewalk at O. Henry Middle School acting like Frankenstein? Embarrassing back then to no get-out, and they still remember that. Then, I was cleaning a bass I caught on the river, and while cleaning it, I acted like it ate my thumb. Gosh, was that a mistake? They didn't go back in the water for ages! Memories. How 'bout the crazy things my Father did and I did as a Father. But, now that my Father is gone, I think back at those crazy things on Father's Day. I should bring up one of his things; he made us boys go bonkers! He fixed some Sweet Bread for supper. Wow, did we love sweets growing up? Come to find out later, it was Brains and Eggs. Oooooo is right! What an awful trick, but wow, is it one I remember to this very day….

    Be sure to join me for my next regularly scheduled podcast in a few days as we will discuss the making of a professional genealogist! How to put the pieces together for your family history...

    Episode 19 - What is True Love? True Love Ways

    Episode 19 - What is True Love? True Love Ways

    Are you in true love? Do you want to truly love your partner? Here are the characteristics of true love you should know and implement in your relationship.

    In my last two episodes, where I paid tribute to our friends and family in World War II, I spoke of three special friends I called the Three Musketeers of Eagle Lake, Texas. They were TRUE FRIENDS. Today, I will talk about taking that friendship to another level… TRUE LOVE.

    Love is something that most of us can’t describe in words. One thing is for sure, however, and that is true love is rare to find. When we fall in love, the world looks beautiful. Everything around looks incredible. Our heart fills up with purity.

    Books written that incorporate True Love...Sometimes we'll sigh... sometimes we'll cry.... Peter & Gordon 1960

    I Am Woman - Hear Me Roar

    I Am Woman - I Am Invincible

    True Love Ways

    I Go to Pieces - The Sequel to True Love Ways

    Great Audio Books from Sidney St. James

    Episode 17: A Memorial Tribute to All Who Came Home Alive During Operation Magic Carpet Shouting, "Home Alive in '45!"

    Episode 17: A Memorial Tribute to All Who Came Home Alive During Operation Magic Carpet Shouting, "Home Alive in '45!"

    Operation Magic Carpet was the most extensive combined air and sealift ever organized during wartime. Elmer A. Struss, my father, was an officer in the Navy, one of many assigned this task and helped bring back home millions of soldiers at the end of WWII. It was called… by all the servicemen and women, as the scope expanded worldwide, as “Home Alive By ’45!”

    My special presentation on this Memorial Weekend is of the First Nighttime Torpedo Drop in Naval History, Operation Magic Carpet, and action in the theater of Northern Africa. Today, my words are a tribute to the patriotism about Eagle Lake, Texas’ Three Musketeers, as they were known in school in the 1920s and 1930s… Robert Jack “Coogie” Ney, Elmer A. Struss and Freddie R. Frnka.

    "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same." - President Ronald Reagan

    "As we set today aside to honor and thank our veterans, let us be mindful that we should do this every day of the year and not just one." – Beth Pennington

    "Our flag, Old Glory, doesn’t fly because the wind moves it. It flies proudly with the very last breath of each soldier who died protecting it." - Sidney St. James

    Episode 16: Have You Ever Moved into Your New House to Find Out it's Haunted? I Did!

    Episode 16: Have You Ever Moved into Your New House to Find Out it's Haunted? I Did!

    Owing a home is one of our great American dreams, something we all aspire to do in our early years of life. There's something about having a tiny part of planet Earth to call your own that inspires a sense of both security and pride. Getting the keys handed over to you at closing for your very first home is always a cause for celebration: you open the door, cross the threshold, possibly carrying the woman you love in your arms, and go inside your very own castle - whether it be an apartment or a single-family home in a quiet residential subdivision.

    Have you ever moved into your new house and found it was haunted? See other novels, This Old House and Guitar by Sidney St. James

    Tell me this. What happens if you are one of those unfortunate new home buyers who makes a bone-chilling discovery that you and your family, not to mention your pets, are not the only ones who reside in your home sweet home?

    Living in a haunted house can be stressful for many reasons. There's the emotional stress that comes with being continuously in fear of whats just around the corner, as well as the financial stress that occurs when particularly active ghosts wreak their eerie business around the house: they break things and send the energy bill sky high with their constant tinkering with the lights or the air conditioning thermostat! Knocking picture frames off the walls, etc. Moreover, it's definitely unsettling to feel as though you are never alone and always being watched, especially in the one place you hope some privacy. There was one such house near Glidden, Texas that was in such bad shape, the community advertised that on October 31stat 7 pm, a contest to see who could remain in the house all night.

    Episode 15: The Long Road to Forgiveness - Faith - Seventy Times Seven

    SEASON 1

    EPISODE 15

    THE THREE DIFFERENT STEPS TOWARDS FINDING FORGIVENESS

    FAITH – SEVENTY TIMES SEVEN BY SIDNEY ST. JAMES (A True Story of Forgiveness)

    From the memoirs of the first ordained woman minister in the state of Louisiana, Rev. Ada Caston Slaton Bonds, as Moderator for the General Assembly six years in a row. Given the official title of Mother of All Presbyteries of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church. Active in the ministry for 55+ years, almost longer than any other woman in the United States. Known throughout the South as the greatest Evangelical minister in all denominations.

    Given the title of the representative to God for her “Pure Womanhood” by the Ku Klux Klan No. 60.

    Numerous scriptures were found in her Red Chief Notebooks about Forgiveness.

    The story of her life written in the creative historical nonfiction genre.

    How Often Do We Have to Forgive?

    Matthew 18:21-22. Then Peter came up and said to him, "Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? As many as seven times?" Jesus said to him, "I do not say to you seven times, but seventy times seven."

    *****

    As soon as Jesus rose from the dead and made his first visit to the disciples, he breathed the Holy Spirit on them and then spoke to them about forgiveness.

    John 20:21-23. Again Jesus said, “Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.” 22 And with that he breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit. 23 If you forgive anyone’s sins, their sins are forgiven; if you do not forgive them, they are not forgiven.”

    *****

    One text that speaks about the consequences of unforgiveness. 

    Matthew 18:23-35. The parable begins with the King forgiving the debt of one of his servants who cried for mercy. After that this same servant, who was forgiven, mercilessly charged one of his fellow servants. The fellow servant likewise cried for mercy. But it was thrown in the prison by the pardoned servant until the debt was repaid. The King learned of this and was outraged.

    The outcome of the story is narrated in Matthew 18: 32-35. “Then the master called the servant in. ‘You wicked servant,’ he said, ‘I canceled all that debt of yours because you begged me to. 33. Shouldn’t you have had mercy on your fellow servant just as I had on you?’ 34. In anger his master handed him over to the jailers to be tortured, until he should pay back all he owed. 35. “This is how my heavenly Father will treat each of you unless you forgive your brother or sister from your heart.”

    The song at the end of the podcast was sung by Fernando Ortega… “Lord, I Want to be Like Jesus in My Heart!”
