Someone sent this to me and I have no idea who wrote it, but it is very interesting.

Atheism - The belief that there was nothing and nothing happened to nothing and then nothing magically exploded for no reason, creating everything and then a bunch of everything magically rearranged itself for no reason whatsoever into self-replicating bits which then turned into dinosaurs - Makes perfect sense.

I would rather live my life as if there was a God and die to find there isn't, 
than to live my life like there was no God, and die to find there is. A.Camus

Y   Your beliefs are yours, and you do not have to agree with me to be my friend. If you have been reading my blogs, I think you know where my heart is, with Jesus.

Gospel Sing Video - So Funny

Sheila King Everett sent this out on Facebook. It is a wonderful video that I hope you get a big chuckle over.

If you ever thought that Christians don't have fun, you will really enjoy this and will know that we do have fun. Thank you Sheila for this video.


  • If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof overhead and a place to sleep you are richer than 75% of this world.
  • If you have money in the bank, in your  wallet, and spare change in a dish, you are among the top  8% of the world's wealthy.
  • And  if you get this on your own computer, you are part of the  1% in the world who has that  opportunity.  
  • If  you woke up this morning with more health than illness .. 
  • You are more blessed than the many who will not even  survive this day.  
  • If  you have never experienced the fear in battle, the  loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture,
  • Or  the  pangs of starvation ... You are ahead of 700 million  people in the world
  • If  you can attend a church without the fear of harassment,  arrest, torture or death,  you are envied by, and more  blessed than, three billion people in the   world
  • If  your parents are still alive and still married are very rare.

What Are we Doing?

I hate Obama, I hate Romney, I hate political commercials! Not all of this is true. I believe that both Obama and Romney are good people. As a Christian, I have to stand behind Romney. The reason for that is because President Obama has crossed the line and signed things into law that I do not believe are moral.

I believe that the only way to serve God is to serve others. I believe that marriage is between one man and one woman. I stand by the tenant that sex should between a man and a woman in the holy bonds of matrimony. You may think I am being simplistic in my beliefs, but that is not it.

I had a loving, sweet brother who was one of the first homosexuals in this country to succumb to AIDS. I was 11 years old when he was born and I felt like he was my little boy for a long time. I practiced my parenting skills on him. I took care of him and my little sister who came along two years later. I would like to think that I will see him in heaven because he accepted Christ when he was around 11 years old. But, if that were so, how could he follow the gay lifestyle? I am not letting this eat me up because Paul was responsible for his own future and made his own choices.

I believe that living together without the benefit of marriage is wrong. I did it, knowing that it was wrong. I justified it because of so many excuses,  but when we got married, the feelings that we share were so much more intense than they had been in the four years of "living together." The big word then was "Commitment" and that made our commitment to Christ and the Church even stronger. We both longed to go to church during our time of living together, but did not feel that we should go to church and be hypocrites. Now, we are committed Christians because we know that God has forgiven our sin, because we came to him with a clear heart and confessed our sin and asked for forgiveness.

I believe that we should not speak ill of others and try to always be kind and use Christ as the model for our lives. I believe that we should not harm others by word or deed. Christ would not cast a stone at the prostitute who was about to be stoned. He said: "Let you who are without sin, cast the first stone." So, I will not cast stones at those who I feel are morally wrong. What they do is between them and God. As long as it does not hurt others. If I feel that they are morally wrong, I will not support them.

I believe that we become human at the moment of conception. How could we be anything else? God created us in his image. He says that we should not kill. Why then do people think that it is alright to kill a being that God created in his image? You should not blame a baby for the sins of their fathers. A baby is a precious gift from God no matter how conceived.

I think I really dislike Atheists because of their self-serving belief that there is no God. I have experienced some very nasty comments from Atheist on the Internet. They seem to look down their noses at those of us who believe in God. They tend to treat us as if we are idiots. If there is no God, they do not have to worry about who they hurt. Why should they care about what goes on in this world? Why not murder the innocent? What difference does it make to them if the earth is kept clean for the future. They will not be around. Personally, I feel sorry for them that they do not have faith in someone more than themselves. There is a dictum from Blaise Pascal, called Pascal's Wager, that is put into more modern simplified language by Albert Camus:

·          I would rather live my life as if there is a God and die to find out there isn't, than live my life as if there isn't and die to find out there is. Albert Camus  

I think this is true to a certain extent, except if you do not truly believe there is a God and just say there is because you want to be on the good side if there is. God can see your heart and it would mean giving your life over to him completely, not just in case there is.


You may not agree with what I have said, but I hope you believe in my right to say it. I don't care to hear about dissenting opinions, I avoid them when possible. I do not argue and will not argue with your opinions. If you leave hateful, obscene comments, they will be deleted.

I started a class on Sunday called "The Truth Project" by Dr. Del Tackett, who is associated with "Focus on the Family." The major question Dr. Tackett poses is: "Do you really believe that what you believe is really real?" How do we know what we really believe.

There are five of us in this study. We hope some others will join us, but it is okay if they don't. The class is on a video with a facilitator. We are praying for each other each day.  "The Cosmic Battle: Battle between God's Truth and the lies and illusions of the world, the flesh, and the devil. The arguments and pretensions that set themselves up against the knowledge of God, against His nature and His word." There are bible references for everything and I am really looking forward to the study this week.

Wednesday morning, I am joining another group to study Deuteronomy. They meet from 9:30 a.m. to noon. This is a Beth Moore Study group. We have a facilitator and I think she said that she has 16 signed up. I am looking forward to this class also. Since I miss Sunday Morning Bible Study, both of these classes will ensure that I don't fall behind on my studies to be able to help others to understand the Gospel.

If you are interested in "The Truth Project", you can go to the .

I pray that you all have a wonderful day in Christ!

( I received this in an email from a dear Christian friend. If you find it in your heart, please pass this to your friends. It is so important that the U.S. goes back to its Christian roots. I am afraid that if we allow this part of our lives to disappear, life as we know it will go down the drain. Christianity offers freedom more than any other religion or philosophy. Women have value and are heard. Children are cherished and not murdered before they are even born. Christians are taught to respect others and to rear their children to respect others. Christ fills our hearts with love and caring for others. The only way to serve God is to serve others.  "I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13" - Barbara Duke )
This is the scariest election we as Christians have ever faced, and from the looks of the polls, the Christians aren't voting Christian values. We all need to be on our knees.

Do you believe we can take God at His word? Call upon His name, then stand back and watch His wonders unfold. This scripture gives us, as Christians, ownership of this land and the ability to call upon God to heal it. I challenge you to do that. We have never been more desperate than now for God to heal our land.

This election is the scariest I remember in my lifetime. 2 Chronicles 7:14. 'If my people, which are called by my name shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.'

During WWII, there was an advisor to Churchill, who organized a group of people who dropped what they were doing every night at a prescribed hour for one minute, to collectively pray for the safety of England, its people, and peace. This had an amazing effect, as bombing stopped.

There is now a group of people organizing the same thing here in America .

The United States of America, and our citizens need prayer more than ever!!!                                         If you would like to participate, each evening at 9:00 P.M. Eastern Time (8 PM Central, 7 PM Mountain, 6 PM Pacific), stop whatever you're doing, and spend one minute praying for the safety of the United States, our troops, our citizens, for peace in the world, the upcoming election, that the Holy Bible will remain the basis for the laws governing our land, and that Christianity will grow in the U.S.

Someone said if people really understood the full extent of the power we have available through prayer, we might be speechless. Our prayers are the most powerful asset we have. Thank you.

Please send this link on to anyone who you think will want to join us in this prayer.

THE HOLY SPIRIT - Pastor Seley

 1. Anxious thoughts, fear of the unknown, scared of what might happen, the feeling of losing control....
The Bible says: Philippians 4:6 ... "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiiving, present your requests to God."

2. How we talk about our feelings, how we express our agreement or disagreement...
The Bible says: Ephesians 4:29 . ..  "Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouth, but only what is helpful for building others up acoording to their needs, that it might benefit those who listen."

3. The primacy of UNITY in God's body... the church.
The Bible says: Ephesians 4:1-3. . .". . . I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received, Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace."

4. Be extremely aware of Satan and his agenda... to divide, create confusion, isolate portions of Christ's body, to hinder the work of God's kingdom.
The Bible says: 1n Peter 5:8 . . .: . . .Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him. . . "

5. We need God's wisdom for making decisions in our lives.
James 1:5. . ."If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him."

6. Remember what our purpose and plan is for life.
The Bible says: Matthew 22:37-39. ..  "Love the Lord our God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the 1st and greatest commandment. And the Second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself."
The Bible says: Matthew 28: 19-20. . "Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the the name of the Fathere, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you."

For many believers, the Holy Spirit is a mystery. The Holy Spirit knows the mind of God.
The Holy Ghost,
1. What the Bible reveals about the Holy Spirit:
a.  According to the doctrine of the Trinity and God exists eternally in three persons: God the Father,
God the Son,  and God the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19)
b. God the Holy Spirits the             who came to dwell permanently in the hearts of believers after Jesus; ascension into heaven. In this way, God lives and loves               us. (Acts: 2:1-4; Romans 8:1,2.10.11)
c. The Holy Spirit                us of sin, prays for us, helps us,                  us, teaches us, in every way abouot God's will. (I Corinthians 2:10-14)
d. The Holy Spirit gives Christians Spiritual gifts (tongues, healing, miracles, exhortation, mercy, hospitality, teaching, preaching, service, etc.) in order to                      the church. (I Corinthians 12:1,4-11)
e. He is called the Comforter, Helper, the Spirit above the Waters, the Breath of Life, the Servant, the Spirit of God, Oil, the Double Portion, the Hand of God, the Breath of Judgement and Fire, the Spirit of Creation and Renewal, the Lamp of the Lord, the Spirits

2. Specifics about the Holy Spirit:
a. The Bible reveals the Holy Spirit to be a                with all the characteristics of a living personal being.
b. One of the key reasons why we believe in the personality of the Holy Spirit is that He has the characteristics of a person,              emotions                 (I Corinthians 2:10-11; Ephesians 4:30: 1 Corinthians 12:11)
c. The Holy Spirit does things that only a person can do: teaches, prays, guides, performs miracles, comforts, guides.

3. The Holy Spirit is God

4. The Holy Spirit has three defining characteristics of God:
a. He is all-knowing                         . (omniscient) (I Corinthians 2:10-11)
b. He is all- powerful                       . (omnipotent) (Genesis 1:1-2, 26)
C. He is everywhere simultainously  . (omnipresent) (Psalm 139:7,8)

Go Figure

Go Figure? What exactly does that mean? Does it mean that you just do not understand why someone is doing something or does it mean that you just cannot believe that they are doing it. Go Figure?

If you have been reading my blog, you know that sometimes I get on my soapbox and here I am again today.

Sometimes things are just not what they seem. People just want to do what they want to do. Sometimes they don't care about convention or tradition. They just want what they want. I am not perfect and have never claimed to be. I have done some things in my life that I am not proud of. But when I came to my senses and remembered that my eternal life depends on what I do in this world. I have never been a homosexual but I have relatives who are. I love them as I love others. I do not agree with their lifestyle, but that is between them and God. I do feel like they should have a civil union if the law allows, not a marriage.

Marriage was instituted by God as the union of one man and one woman so they could have children and populate the world. Marriage is sacred, homosexuality is not. The Bible does not now and never has made it okay. After thousands of years of homosexuality being taboo or sin if you will, it does not suddenly become a wonderful relationship. Just because the closet has opened and everyone is trying not to hurt anyone else's feelings, people are agreeing that it is alright now. Having sex with someone that you are not married to is a sin called fornication or having sex with someone who is married to someone else is adultery. Homosexuality is sodomy.

When I lived and worked as a decorator in Dallas, I had the opportunity to meet and talk with a lot of homosexuals. I have been propositioned by other women, but certainly did not even hesitate to say no. I went out with my brother,  who was gay and I think sometimes they wanted to make me a beard. That is a woman who hangs out with a male homosexual to make others think he is straight. I was not having any of it. I started wearing open-toed shoes so I could not go into the bars he frequented with his friends. My brother had a good job with a A+ company. He did a good job but he traveled a lot and partied a lot. Most of the friends I met were pretty irresponsible. It was almost like they did not want to grow up. They seemed to want to party most of the time. What brought me away from that world was moving to Virginia to be near my children.

I really didn't want to think about my brother not being in Eternity with me, and try to rationalize that because he accepted Christ as a  child and was baptized that he would be in Heaven. But, if he had truly done that, he would not have let the homosexuality dominate. He ended up dying from his exposure to AIDS. I miss him, even after over 25 years. I was 11 when he was born. I fed him, changed him, bathed him, rocked him to sleep, and loved him very much. I am saying that it is not my place to judge, but it is not my place to impose my will and try to change society of the accepted terms for marriage.

Civil union should be available to anyone living together. Marriage should be reserved for the union of a man and woman. There are many places in the Bible where homosexuality is condemned. Take a look at Sodom and Gomorah.

Don't Suffer a Bully

I think that when I had breast cancer, it had been caused by extreme stress instituted by a very unprofessional bully boss. Then when he retired, the new boss was nice but the bully spoke to him at lunch the first day he was in the office and declared me an incompetent person. It was strange because, the boss I had before him was very positive and loved my innovation and dedication to my work. He praised me constantly and provided me with training that involved sending me to California and Seattle occasionally.

When he retired, the bully boss came. He didn't like the previous boss, so therefore, he did not like me. Luckily, I had become friends with the region chief, who became one of the top people in the agency. He knew the bully very well and sympathized with me wholeheartedly. I called him on occasion or emailed him with info about what was going on at his request. I even went to personnel about the bully occasionally. I think he finally retired when he was told to retire of get fired. Not a good situation. He had demeaned me so much in the office that the other employees began to believe him. I was at my wits end and when the time came that I could retire, I did.  I thought I could get another job and continue to work but once I got settled down enough to look for another job, I had cancer. Tell me stress doesn't harm your health. Over three years later, I am still not doing so well.

If you are in a situation where you are being bullied, get out, any way you can. Life is too short to let others bully you. At the same time all this was going on, I was ordained as a deacon in my church and I became lead usher. I was elected President of my Lions Club 2 times and held positions in my Woman's Club and NAP Unit. I have never had anything even comparable to happen to me in my life. I am not stupid and have a reasonably high IQ. I am a nice person who lives to help others, because I believe that the only way to serve God is through service to others. Why do you think that this man had such evil notions toward me?

Personally, I think that it is because he is a part of LDS (Mormon). He knew that real Christians believe that LDS is a cult. We believe that they have gone against specific Bible tenants about not believing in new prophets after Christ. We believe that the Bible is the inerrant word of God and cannot be replaced by fairy tales of being gods of planets and such (I have read the book of Morman-which has had over 4000 revisions since originally printed).

Here I am on my soapbox again. I really don't like to do that. If you want to quit following me, go ahead. I didn't say I didn't love them, I just wouldn't vote for them.  As a child of the one true God, I love you all.
