Feeling Stronger

Just a quick note to tell you at breakfast after Mass today, I really started to perk up. I feel better now than at any time since before Christmas. One of my readers sent me a private note that helped. There was something I did not want to do, but needed to, that I had put off. I did it last night.

Later today, I will put up a post with a ton of interesting and fruitful links. Then tomorrow or Friday I have a big piece on the nature of satan and what he is doing.

Thank you for your prayers.

About charliej373

Charlie Johnston is a former newspaper editor, radio talk show host and political consultant. From Feb. 11, 2011 to Aug. 21, 2012, he walked 3,200 miles across the country, sleeping in the woods, meeting people and praying as he went. He has received prophetic visitation all his life, which he has vetted through a trio of priests over the last 20 years, and now speaks publicly about on this site. Yet he emphasizes that we find God most surely through the ordinary, doing the little things we should with faith and fidelity. Hence the name, The Next Right Step. The visitations inform his work, but are not the focus of it. He lives in the Archdiocese of Denver in the United States.

    Glad you’re feeling better. Your experience of wellness/un-wellness timeline coinciding with some of my own.
    Rick Wiles in TruNews speaks of next fall being the time of catastrophe, as you do.

    Those of us in grace must now pray without ceasing for conversion of the rest of humanity.

    Charlie, Some where on your back posts you wrote by the time the ?????? came you would not be here. Is your condition a forerunner of this prophetic statement?

    I also read and am amazed about how much you do daily. Where on earth do you find the time? Do you have the gift of bi-location to manage it all? Or maybe the gift of multiplication of self? (:
    What time do you rise and greet the morning dawn?

    Thank God you are feeling better Charlie.
    Thank you Blessed Mother for your care and help in getting Charlie back on the trail again.

    Yes, peace and blessings, Charlie, for continued good health and a better “mortal coil!” (We English literature major Catholics picked up on your words from Shakespeare’s “Hamlet.”)

    Shakespeare also used it prior to his ‘mortal coil’ expression, to show humility in his “King John,” 1595:

    “I am not worth this coyle that’s made for me.”


  27. SteveBC says:

    Yes, welcome all the back. Glad to hear you’re better!


    • SteveBC says:

      I meant “welcome all the way back.” I get the long entries right and make simple mistakes on the short ones. Duh! 🙂


      • Connie says:

        Steve, your silliness is endearing! Trying to read every comment – I am trying to get caught up with everyone here. Charlie, I am glad your trial is over for the time being and will keep you in my prayers as I know
        you will need all our prayers because your mission is so important. I have to say I can feel the hope and joy in the comments here, most probably due to your feeling better our beloved true friend Charlie! I am guessing you have several angels keeping you company also. So much wisdom in these posts- I need to have posts and comments put into book form so that I might return to them again and again. I think it was maybe Nancy A. that puts posts in a binder? Anyway, even though it may cost me a printer cartridge every few weeks I need to do this even though I have many posts printed out, the comments also need to be included- they are just so integral to the posts! I feel as if Charlie and co. is keeping me sane and moving forward……

    Happy you are feeling bette.r. I enjoy your posts.they give me hope.this comes all the way from Cape Breton Island N.S Canada. I hope my family are in your prayers as we really need them and praying for you also. You are an inspiration.


    • charliej373 says:

      Thanks, Barbara. I spent some time in Nova Scotia when I was 19. I was impressed it looked more like picture postcards of Maine than Maine does. It was the first place I ever saw black squirrels – which were beautiful and exotic – and I loved the beautiful formal garden I saw in Halifax. You and your family are now in my territory of souls and so are very much in my prayers. Welcome.

      Hi Barbara,
      Prayers for You & Yours and Charlie too!!
      My first assignment in the AF was Northern Maine and I did love the Falls and beautiful color up there …. and the outdoors Hunting-n-Fishing … but the Winters …. !
