  1. New birth

    It is perhaps the most famous conversation in the entire Bible. I dare say almost every person that attends any kind of church has at least heard of it and a fair number could quote parts of it and we all use at least one phrase from it. What am I talking about? The phrase "You must be born again." In fact we use it so much that it has almost lost its meaning.

    We that have been around Christian circles understand what is meant but we are so familiar with it that we ...

  2. Dont walk away

    John 6:63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, [they] are spirit, and [they] are life.

    John 6:64 But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray him.

    John 6:65 And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father.

  3. The Journey-Introduction

    I have never really understood the idea of "blogging." I mean, what is the big draw of sharing your private thoughts with anyone that has the intelligence to find your blog.

True, I keep a journal and I write in it off and on (sometimes more off than on) and in there I record events in my life, some significant, some not so, and my thoughts. But that is just for me (and maybe my family after I am gone). So I have never even toyed with ...
  4. Gravitation

    I've been going through a rough patch lately. I found out I won't be able to go to school full-time next semester because my grant won't cover it. It's not a big deal, other than I'll be the last of my friends to graduate. I am praying to God to help me find a good job after I graduate with my associate's so I can support myself and my mother as she grows older.

    My Mom had her birthday last Sunday! So happy birthday to my mom! God blessed me with the most wonderful mother in the world! ...
  5. I've gotta use it!

    This past weekend was a weird one for us weather wise. Saturday was beautiful - sunny, no humidity, in the 70's. Sunday it was in the 80's, humid. Waking up yesterday morning I started out in shorts, tshirt and barefoot and graduated to pants and socks and eventually a fuzzy warm sweater. The day clouded over, the wind picked up and if I didn't know that the calendar said it was the end of May I'd have thought it to be early fall. It was just plain chilly!

    My daughter was fortunate ...
