Good Week....

I have had a really good week so far. I have gotten to correspond with my really good friend about how we are ultra sensetive to sin. How we used to do things that we would not think twice about doing OR just justify doing it. Now we ask ourselves.... Should I do this? Is this right? It was just encouraging to talk to her and I feel blessed to have her as a friend. I love you, V!
Also, I have had contact with my former BSU director. While I was in college I was always active in the BSU or BCM(depending on how old you are). Over the past few days I have been flashing back to the memories I have from my college years and just hanging out at the BSU. Even though I was not a Christian at the time I still enjoyed being around the other students and the staff. We had an awesome time. We had F.I.R.E.(Faith In Real Experiences)on Wednesday nights and that is when we would have Bible study each week. One thing Jeff taught us was that no matter where you are in your life(high school,college,work,nursing home)that is your mission field. You will someday be at a different place and need to take full advantage of the people around you at every stage. The example he gave was the college campus. He stated that we(the students)will never all be at the same place again and we needed to focus on witnessing to the students that were there while we had the chance. Well, I can honestly and regretfully say that I did nothing to build the kingdon of God during those years. I can say that I now have taken that teaching and applied it to my life today. Now my place in life is work. I am surrounded by the same people 40hours a week. That is now my "campus". Im not taking a day with those people for granted, because I know soon I will be in the..... Nursing Home! Wow, I will have to be prayed up because Im scared of old people.(I had a horrible Adopt a Grandma experience, but that is another post)SMILE!

So just remember to take full advantage of your "campus" wherever that may be. Share Christ every chance you get.

I saw the light.

Ok folks. Go to the bathroom, Grab you a cup of joe, and hold on for the ride because this my take a while. Yep, I'm letting it all hang out.

Here's what Jesus has done for me. ( And the list is still growing)

Like many people in the Bible belt, I was raised in church. Actually, I was made to go to church pretty much all my life until I was off to college. I was raised by my grandmother since I was 2 months old, and she made sure that I was in church practically every time the doors were opened. There were times that I liked it and there were times I resented it. As I grew older, I started questioning things that I was taught, God, the Bible, Jesus, etc. I NEVER wanted to believe something "because my grandmother said so" (Even though I highly regarded her opinion most of the time). Throughout my elementary and high school years, I lead a "Christian" lifestyle. By that I mean that I didn't party or drink or cuss (much) or fight, etc... If you would have…

The Real Nativity Scene

So we've seen so many pictures, movie scenes, etc of the Nativity. Well like many things in Israel they just don't look quite like you have imagined. I wish that I could go back a little over 2000 years ago and be able to show you some pictures of the place as it was with Mary holding the baby Lord Jesus, God with Us. I would try to get a wide enough shot to get the Wisemen as they knelt there with their gifts. The Shepards would be there too. They would be there in their filthy clothes. They'd still be pale from seeing the angel and the Glory of God that they had just experienced.

I can't give you any of that, but here is where the place looks like today...

This is the Church of the Nativity:
After walking deep into the church, you walk down into a shallow cave that the church was build on top of. This was the spot that Jesus was born.

If you turn 180° from the above shot, you see the spot where they laid him. The manger would have been somewhere in this tight spot.

It is …

Fireproof my marriage, my thoughts, my actions, my faith, my soul, my eternity!

Linda, the kids, and I all went to see the movie Fireproof last night. If you need a cliff notes, you can read or re-read my previous post "I saw the light".

Needless to say (if you've been reading) the movie hit real close to home. I can honestly say the movie has some great truths in it! It is a wonderful movie! I would encourage anyone to go see it. If you are married, please go with your spouse to see the movie even if you have to drag them! The movie deals with some REAL LIFE issues. I praise the Lord for being able to go such a wonderful movie in a day and time that needs so much of the content that was packed into it.

I pray that you have the opportunity to go see it and you are blessed by it. I know the film is full of truth because I've lived it.

Thank you Lord for your many blessings!

God Bless,
