With me now blogging about the Amazing people on Word Press I have met who have had a huge impact on my experience here and also in my life, I am doing my 3rd one today. I have done 2 before
I now turn my attention to a Man of the cloth and an amazing man at that. Reverend Eddie Tatro, here is his blog http://bishoptatro.wordpress.com/
Eddie and I speak a fair bit on Skype and will be doing “when we get there” The Radio Show with the good man himself. http://prayingforoneday.wordpress.com/shauns-radio-show-coming-soon/ When I decided to go ahead with the Radio Show I honestly did not have to ask Eddie for help, he offered it. That is the kind of man he is. Bishop Eddie is one of the most honest, caring men I have met in my life. We speak about God a lot; Rev. Eddie also has a background in Science and also worked at a Hospital as a Nurse, so his knowledge is huge, so when we start this Radio Show this year we hope, lol, it will be two guys, one of religion and science and more and myself who can talk about anything stupid. But in saying that, Eddie and I have had 4-5 hour chats on Skype Audio and he will say himself we have talked about everything from God, Outer space, String Theory and everything in-between, Rev-Eddie can hold a conversation well, a very clever man, so the Radio Show will be interesting.
I have spoken to Eddies beautiful Wife also and Eddie has spoken to my Partner Dawn also, we are very close. Eddie has also spoken to my Aunt here in Scotland who is also very high up in the Church. But our friendship is not all about God or Religion it goes way past this. Eddie also suffers from Chronic Pain, and this for me makes the man more remarkable, he once after a short time in Hospital came onto Word Press to say sorry for not doing his daily sermon as he does. Eddie was doing a daily video sermon; This is the kind of Man he is, here is one of Eddie’s blogs
The Long Awaited Devotions.. Are Back!! :-)
Eddie was doing one of these every day, and I watched them all. As I have said, I believe in God, I just don’t get religion. My belief is you can have a relationship with God without organised religion. I spoke about this with Rev. Eddie and he simply said “As long as you are happy” or words to that effect. He does not throw God at anyone, he does not preach to people, but if you ask, he will give his time to anyone. I have got close to many people on Word Press; Eddie is one of the people I have got closer to than others. Sometimes Eddie can blog so simple, but so profound at the same time, like this one below, where he is saying sorry for not being around as he moved home a week ago, how cool is that!! I beg you all, please get following, he is a remarkable chap as we say here in the UK
All Is Quiet On The Eastern FrontI will apologize now…As most of you know we are relocating to Connecticut in less than a week. After this Friday we won’t have Internet until we are settled in the new Parsonage/Rectory. I’m not sure how long it will be before we are back on the net. I will miss you all very much. I will try to post from my mobile if I can. Of course I will be putting up pictures or videos of our adventure. Please do contact me via email which can be found on the Contact Page. The two emails I respond quicker to are my Gmail and Me.com accounts. Remember God Loves You and so do I!
As you can see, Eddie is all loving, caring and knowing. He is a brilliant friend to me and very popular with many on Word Press and getting more popular as the days pass, he is reaching out to us all with his loving devine hand to help us all, to care for us all and to be there for each of us. This may be Eddie’s Job as he has his own Church, but it is in his nature to look after people, this is what he does. He cares, he loves, he is in pain, sometimes his pain is bad, but he still does his job, he is all love, the man IS Love
Eddie is a very special person to me, I love him a Brother from another Mother as we often joke and I am his “Mate is a skirt, From Scotland” also. We are friends, we both care, but Eddie will care for you, he will take you in and keep you, he will be at your side when you need him, he will put his pain to one side to make sure you are ok.
If you are going to follow anyone today, I beg you to follow Eddie. I ask God you all see what I see in the man and that you take Eddie to your Heart. Today he will be speaking to his Church and giving his guiding hand and wisdom to others, when he is on Word Press, nothing changes, what you see is what you get.
For my friend Eddie. I love you Bud, friends are easy to find, harder to keep
Eddie once posted a song, a deeply personal song for his Daughter, and I loved it, I play it to my Daughters and sing it to them also. It is my honour to share it with you all, the reasons for this song are personal to Eddie, but I had a tear in my eye when he told me his reasons. So much love from a man I am PROUD to call my Friend for life
Hope you are good Ed.
