Ya I know I got lazy and used YGP lol instead of HTLM.  

I couldn't resist posting this pic.  Remisnt of Crazy Baby lol think of what would of hit the fan if I sent this pic along to that group I was in lol.

A Happy Reunion (thanks Shady for the pic)

I hope everyone had a Blessed Holiday and had good food and good company.  Mine was great but not quite right with out my husband their to fully enjoy it.  We had dinner with my father-law and his wife and her grown children. About the same old same old we do every year.  I did make some side dishes this year and they turned out perty well. Josh was on the road with his mom, they ate at a truck stop and ofcourse the food was lousey.  Runny pumpkin pie? ewww.

I had planned on getting the house spik and span and all the laundry done before Josh and my mother and law got here.  But ofcourse time escaped me and I did a half ass job, still looks good on the surface but not the deep clean that I always feel is needed when company comes to town.  I was so glad Josh called me before he got into town and gave me the hour heads up.  He was very early and I was scrambling to get it all done.  We had a happy reunion as you can imagin.  And it will be nice to have his mom two hours a way.  I told her that she is welcome any time as long as she gives me at least an hour's notice, that is all I ask lol.  So yet again my husband and I are seprated as he went over to ILL. to unpack his mom.  I will go over there tomorrow after church to pick him up.  Org. we planned on all of us going, but I did not want to miss church because my friend Riley is going to be there, he is home Thanksgiving and will be leaving Monday and wont be back till Christmas and my daughter Annie has come down with a cold so that squashed it.  A deeper entry coming up I promise.  Just updating right now.

I have NO life with OUT HIM.

John Campbell made this! I have lost all my material.  Without my hubby I have no inspiration!  He always gives me so much to write about lol, even if the subject isn't centered around him he feeds me more than he knows .  He hates it when I write about him, he makes jokes and doesn't see the importance of all I do on the web.  Ya it is important to some one, I reach out, I touch lives, in a good way usually .  Anyways I think I am going off my blog (that would be a good sticker too!)  See you all after Thanksgiving!  I posted a bunch of Holiday Blinkies and Food Blinkies on the group BornToBlog website.  Use them as you want to. Much Love,Mary

Monday, November 24, 2003

Yesterday was busy cuz we was trying to spent quality family time together since my husband will be gone for a week.  We woke up late and missed church (how I feel bad about that lol especaly since my pastor just send me an e-mail saying how they missed us yesterday and that the service was Awesome).  We went to go see The Cat and Hat movie with the kids.">   The kids liked it but it was a big disapointment to me as a parent.  Way too many lewd jokes not suitable for kids.  At one point the Cat was talking to a garden tool and said "OH You dirty HOE" and then He says "I'm sorry I love you" and wags his tounge at it.

I tried to relish each moment with my husband. I had the dark feeling that this would be our last full day together.  But I have decied not to worry and leave it all in the Lords hands.  He will not be here for a "> but that is o.k. we will spent it with the in-laws.  I droped him off this morning at the airport and am all ready missing him and his presance. Missing his chacolate brown eyes and strong arms. But he is off to Vegas (tried for over an hour to find a Vegas blinkie! but couldn't) to help his mom move out here.  He will get there and help her load up the truck and off they will be.  I told him he is only allowed $25 to spend on the slots lol and that "What happens inVegas stays in Vegas" line didnt apply to US lol.

Tonight I have a scheduled chat for my prayer group, but looks like I will have to push it back an hour so I can take the kids to wresling practice.  I will probly be there bye 9:00 pm central time.

To quote the famous song ironically by Jackson “Doesn’t Matter If You’re Black Or White”

"> Like I said 20/20 last night gave me so much to write about.  Not really thinking, I sat and watched the show with my 9yrd son, letting him stay up a bit later since it was a Friday night.  Well I cringed a bit when they started talking about the Jackson case and preparing in my head the No Touching Rule speech to give my son, always looking for a teaching tool ya know but the conversation we had was way off that subject.  The show focused on Jackson’s angry brother and his interview with Barbra.  He spewed out “This is a modern day lynching” and “ this is about the whites trying to keep the blacks down” My sweet darling boy, who has grown up mostly the only white kid in his class  and has had many black friends and even has cousins that are mixed, ask the question “Mom what is a lynching?” I did fumble a bit with the correct words to say, “Well, along time ago a lot of white ppl did not like black ppl and sometimes to make a point they would take a black person and hang him from a tree with a rope around his neck, and that would kill the person, it is a very hateful thing to do, it is murder.” He had a puzzled look on his face, and I thought to myself, how sweet that he is having trouble believing that ppl would actually do that but then he lays me on the floor with his next comment, “Michael Jackson is Black???” OMG not to be ignorant but I was laughing sooooooooo dang hard! My naive son just didn’t get why I was laughing, he felt he asked a legitimate question. This whole subject could lead into many posts about race issues and about famous ppl buying justice or about child abuse, but you know there is only so much room on here. Take your pick on what one you think I should take up for my next post.

13yrd Surfer Girl has arm Bit off by Shark, yet keeps her faith!

">    " I know God has a plan for my life"

I was watching 20/20 tonight with my son and that show has given me about a weeks worth of posts! LOL I will start with the possitve.  The clip leading into this segment a young girl said " I know God loves me and has a plan for my life" and went into explain that this talented 13yrd on her way to the pros in the surfer world had her arm bit off.  When she said that that I knew she was a Christian and my son looked and me and he said "How cool MOM, even after all that she knows God has a plan for her, I will have to share this story"  I am sure that most of what she said about her faith was on the cutting room floor. I went to her website and was amazed by all I found there.  What a testimony this little girl is and is going to be!  Threw the whole attack she never once cried out and she remainded calm the whole time. She was in prayer right away, asking God to help her and keep her safe.  And now on the road to recovery, she is determaind to surf again!  Just an awesome story!

">  AOL News - Parents Seek Release of Columbine ReportThe report was compiled for school district attorneys as they prepared for lawsuits. The parents say the details could help prevent another tragedy by shedding light on any warning signs that were missed or ignored.

School district attorneys have refused to release the 200-page report, saying it is covered by the attorney-client privilege exception in state open-records laws.

HOW MESSED UP IS THAT! We have become so protective over being sued because this had become a sue happy culture, that information that could possible prevent future events like this may be lost! Shame on you!

What I wrote to that group, after being IM and demanding I give an apology

To all who may have been offended by the pic I sent called Crazy Baby I am sorry if it bothered you and you have a right to your feelings.  If I thought the picture was going to hurt anyone I would have Never sent it in the first place. The picture was more of a commentary of what silly things some ppl do with their photo shop programs.  It was not endorsing mutilation. I would be the first to report it if I thought someone did that to their kid!  When I first saw the pic I had my little girl sitting on my lap, and she didn't see anything wrong, all she had to say was Cute BABY.  I did a whole journal entry about how I pray that she will not bring a boyfriend like that home and jokingly wrote I am in for some trouble when she hits her teens. But the sad fact is many ppl have piercings and emulate that to their children.  Some dads may think its cool if JR. grows up and gets a tattoo and noise ring just like him. . To each his own.  We live in a diverse group and not everyone is the same or will look the same.  As I am reminded over and over in this group not everyone has the same beliefs, hold the same values or is cut from the same cloth and that we are to be respectful to everyone.  Some thought the pic funny, some did not.  I do not think all the things that come from this group are my cup of tea, some of the tags of how women scantly dressed or in provocative posse or bad girl attitude is not for me but I respect the fact that we are all different and if they want to have that as their tag, who am I to ask them to take it off.   I really enjoyed this group a lot and you are all wonderful ladies.  But over and over there seems to be little things that come up and I am always at the center of it.  The whole purpose of the group is to have fun but for me all the rules and the issues have become too much to accommodate.  So please take me off your lists and I will unsubscribe from the website. Thanks.

The Wife Card?

">      Ephesians 5:21 Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God. 22Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.5:25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it.5:28 So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies.He that loveth his wife loveth himself.   Some do not like the idea of submiting just because they dont understand what it means.When I do it my husband says I am playing the wife card! Husbands have a big resposiblity, he will be held accountable for all that goes on in his home. That is why I let mine have the finaly say, cuz the way I see it, it's on his head if it goes right or wrong.If I have submitted I did my part.Now that doesn't mean I don't give my input, or that I would be asked to do something unhonorable. If you notice the vers says submit one to another and love your wife! So it is not as if he rules over me, that is what many think submision is about.If he loves me as Christ loves his church then I will give him all like I would give Christ.Here is an example,something we are going threw right now.  We do need another car, the ones we have now are in bad shape and my husband is concerned about saftey.  We do not have cash to just buy one and our credit is not in the best of shape. I feel that we should do what we can with the ones we have and that God will provide when the time is right. But it is like my husband has cars on the brain and that is all the can think about. He is in the process of trying to get us a car loan. I feel that is not a good thing to do at this time cuz we will be stuck with a high rate and winter is coming up, the slowest time of year for his job.  I do not want to have to worry about a car payment.  I have told him all this, showed him my position and said, I leave it to you cuz that is your job, it is on you.  He calls that playing the wife card! Like I am sneeking out of my resposiblity lol.  Nope that is not how I see it, he just dosn't like it that its on him, even though that is what God has required of him.

Crazy Baby offensive?

That pic I posted in my journal of the baby doctored up to look like  he had tats and piercings, that I found on a differnt website has caused a stirr in a SAHM group I am apart of.  I found it sad and funny.  I passed it along to that group threw e-mail saying this is funny but I hope it was done on photo shop or something or else that would run along the lines of child abuse.  Well at first I got many e-mails saying how funny and then one saying to the effect that how dare I send such a picture along and that it was objectable to her (granted she is griveing a loss of a child so I will take that at face value, we all have opionons)  But I would of never sent it if I knew it would be such a big deal and besides I have seen much worse come threw that group!  Well today I got slamed in IM by one of the group leaders.  Saying how that hurt my Christian Witness and would Jesus of sent that pic? Well I said Jesus had a sense of humor and I am not Perfect like Jesus yet.  Then she goes on saying it would be best if before I sent any other pics threw the group that I should have them cleared first or if I was going to send some thing that may disrespectful to have a disclaimer on it.  Well duh, if I thought it was disrespectful I wouldnt of sent it along.  And I do not want to walk on eggshells for every post I make, and is it fair to ask me to clear every thing, are they going to ask that of everyone in the group?? Basicaly she said some ppl wanted to report me to TOS for that pic.  ARE YOU KIDDING ME!   OH but dont have hard feelings, just wanted to make me aware of the situation.  Breath Mary.  Ok.  I feel better.  It anitn nothing to get all upset over.  We all have our issues.  There I have vented, I feel better!

">    Oh man, a nightmare boyfriend in the making!  Thanks for ETC's journal for sharing this pic.  As I looked at it my daughter Sophia who is only 3! was sitting on my lap and said "Cute BABY".  I think I am in for some trouble when she becomes a teenager, ya think? LOL  I hope that was just his Halloween costume cuz while it is funny at first, if you think about it for long engh, its sad and scarry it some one did that to thier kid permanate. LOL I can only imagin what the Father looks like! (grinning here heehee).

There was a time when I thought it might be cute if Josh and I for one of our anversery to get matching tounge piercings, thankfuly that was just a phase along with my pink hair.  I did have the pleaser of kissing a guy once in a bar with a tounge stud and I will admit threw my drunken stupier it felt very sexy.  But after reading about it and all the care and health concerns envolved in the whole thing I would rather tread on the safe side. lol Josh can get the same effect if I just pop a piece of candy in my mouth as I kiss him in his sensitive areas.*wink wink*

Why we don't need cable! LOL

">   We have not had cable t.v. for quite some time and really we are doing fine with out it.  Sure we are so tempted to get it but who wants to pay $50 or so a month for only the bare basics?? Not worth it plus what is on but junk anyways?.  Well Josh's dad taped a bunch of "guy" stuff for Josh off of the Discovery channle, Monster Garage and American Chopper and a few other voom voom shows.   It has always been Josh's thing to build his own car or bike some day and frankly, yes, he gets hard when he sees a nice peice of mechinery. So he has dragged me into this fancy too, as I sat and watched the motorcylce shows with him, Huny, You would look so good riding B*tch. LMBO.  What, NO WAy I got to have my own bike, you can be the one to be my B*tch! LOL  We even have looked into getting a bike frame to start our little project together, MAN who has 4,000 to spare for just a good frame!  Besides, I would rather put that money into a missions trip and use it for God's work. lol  But it is fun to covet sometimes, slap slap  bad Mary  bad. lol  But I would look good with my long blonde hair flapping in the wind.

"Are You Ready? Let's Roll" Last few words heard from Todd Beamer

">   A friend lent me this book since she was already reading several.  She got it on sale and asked me to preview it for her.  I was holding back my drool.  I love to read and have been eyeing this one forever but I have been too wraped up to get into a book.  I got this book Friday and finished it last night. It may look familar to you and the name Beamer may ring some bells for you.  It was for me anyways.

I highly recomend this book!  It honors a great Hero and tells the story from his widow,Lisa Beamer's prespective.  The first chapter took me right back to that day on 9-11-01. I cried openly as I read her words.  She like many of us saw the events happening on t.v. and was in the same shock. But unlike me, she had a loved one flying that day.  It was later that she and the world found out how important a role her husband played on that tragic day in our history. 

Todd Beamer and other passangers of United Flight '93 over took the plane highjacked by terrorists and crashed it before it could reach our capital and possibly killing even more inoccent pp. It is Todd's theme saying for his life "Let's Roll" that was recorded in history as they leapt into action.  He and his wife are examples of how pepole live out thier faith, instead of just talking about it.  I would say this book is a must read!

Esther 4:14 "who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for [such] a time as this?"

Mourning a fellow Journaler

">       We can get so close to ppl here online and even if we do not meet in person, we still form strong bonds and connections.  It is a buddylister's worst fear to come online and find one of yours is gone for good, and are not sure what all happen or where they went.  Even worse when you find out that the person you have grown so close to threw e-mails,chat,and IM and journals is gone for good because of death.  In the Born To Blog community we are mourning such a loss.  Raven the author of "Where is Mr. Right" died Nov. 5th(her birthday!) in a car accedent with her boyfriend. Hers was not a journal I visited and I did not have the prilage to know this women, but many many in our commuity is mourning her and are in shock.  I grieve with them.  I am sad for I never talked to her or got a chance to share God's Love with her, so I do not myself have that assurance of where she is right now, nor can I say to others for sure where she is.  I can only say we do not know what happens in the last seconds of life. She may of very well called out to God, and may of called her home into his presance.  That is my hope.  But I also know that if she did not, it is a very sad place where she is and that makes me even more depressed.  I think of my family who I know doesn't have a relationship with the Lord, and I cry out to God for them but in the end it is between them and God and the choices they make.  Do not end this day with out making that choice to form a relationship with him!  For we are not promised tomorrow, and we do not know when our time is up.  It is apointed ONCE for man to die and then the judgment.

Bill Hoover A Hero to Me!

">Picture fromLVRJ If you ask Bill, he will say he is no hero. He will say all he did was serve his time and did his job to the best of his ability.  He says the real heroes are those who die in combat or taken prisoner never to be heard from again.  But I think he is a hero for several reasons.  He did not just serve his time and then get out as fast as he could.  Some times it is what you do after combat, and after you return that counts too.  He is a role model for us all. Bill Hoover followed the family tradition and joined the Coast Guard right out of highschool. In '66 he was stationed out of Boston Mass on ocean patrol, available for search and rescue, watching, charting and advising ships about ice bergs.  He says it was a cold and boring time at sea.  Then he transferred to US Coast Guard Squadron One based out of  Da Nag, Republic of Vietnam.  A fact that I never knew about was that from 1961 to 1975, 1100 Coast Guard people served in Vietnam. Bill was over there fighting on the coastal/river ways agenst the Viet Cong and North Vietnam troops from '67 to '69.  After being injured and spending time in US Navel Hospital at Yokoska, Japan he returned home and was honorably discharged with the rank of Gunners Mate First Class '72.  O.K. so like that wasn't amazing and honorable?? I think it was, since the stories I have heard from my family is for my dad it was Vietnam or Canada or join the Coast Guard assigned to some lighthouse.  Bill served when others chickened out and ran from duty!  For that I am proud of him.  But that is not the end of his story.  What he did after makes him just as much a hero in my book.

 He still served his country for 26 years as a Police Officer for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey Port Authority Precincts covering most of the Transportation facilities in the NY/NJ area. He patrol such areas as Kennedy, La Guard, and Newark Airports, The Holland and Lincoln tunnels. the George Washington bridge, mid town Bus Terminal, Path commuter railroad, and the World Trade Center.  I have never been to NewYork, but we all of heard the stories of the crime and have seen ThirdWatch.  Not an easy beat to be on I bet.  Yet he served his community, reaching the level of Lieutenant.  He did many things in his career as a public servant.  He was a death investigator and also taught it at the Police Academy. He was qualified as Emergency Services Officer.  But he says his most favorite job was with the K-9 Unit.  To this day he still does charity work for the German Shepherds who fill this job. By the end of his career he had racked up 19 different commendations!!  He doesn't say but I am sure he got a few of them for being one of the first to respond to the '93 bombing of the WTC and helping in the rescue.  As full of a career he had, you know he just couldn't rest.  He went to live with his wife and K-9 partner, Bear in Las Vegas after his retirement in '96.  He started his own Personal Security Company but due to health he had to put it aside and fully retire. 

When 9-11 happen he was deeply effected. He worked that beat, he knew all those men who came to the rescue on that day. He lost 37 friends and coworkers among them a K-9. He could not just sit home and weep.  He got up and did something to help.  He drove across country to NY and worked at Ground Zero for 5 weeks! He saw first hand the devastation to our country, and he felt it deep down to his core.  He is quoted as saying "Before he was a 'Christmas and Easter Christian, and I think that's changed a little."  Bill did not just put his time in and then get out.  Even after his military career he served us, protected us, and then wept with us.  He may look tough on the out side but underneath it he is as sensitive as you would want a man to be. He will never know what a blessing, what an example, what a Hero, he is to us and to our children. Read more about Bill Hoover in this 2001 article about him working Ground Zero.

Don't Forget to Honor a Vet

I have been thinking and praying about who to honor in my journal this Vetern's Day.  Thre are so many who deserve to be honored.  I have some in my family who I could of done it on and even my own father who was in the Coast Gaurd.  But there was one person who I knew deserved it, and I wanted to get to know him better.  So I asked him to share with me some of his record and asked if I could feature him in my journal.  I don't know why vets dont see them selves as heros and are embrassed to get attention, but after from what I hear some coxing from his wife he sent me the info. 

I met Bill threw aol journals.  He was the number 1 pick for his journal "Comments on the events of my Life" when I was only number 4 on the list.  And reading his journal I could see why he got the much deserved #1 spot.  I have been following his journal ever since.  Tomorrow I will try and do him justice and honor him in my journal.  He is a great writer, and a wonderful man from all I have read on him.  I must confess he has reminded me of my own father and they do share some simlarites. Both share the name Bill and both have been in the Coast Guard.  Also both have been in security in Las Vegas.  More on him tomorrow!!!

">   Wow I have been away from the computer all weekend long and feel like I am behind on all the journals lol.  Congrates to all those who won the Member choosen Awards!  Pleased to see my favs was choosen.   I had a nice weekend.  Friday night a friend from church came over for dinner and then her and I went to see a Run Away Jury. It was o.k. kinda political and that anoiyed me some.  But I was glad to get away from the house and have some girl time with my friend.  She is so sweet and I love her so much.  Recently at church she gave her testimony, about her getting out of the gay lifestlye and totaly turning her life over to Jesus.  She confessed to me friday that she was nervous that it may change how ppl saw her, or that I may treat her differntly, but she now sees that she had nothing to fear because everyone loves her, and it didn't make one differnce her sharing her testimony.  She was my room mate on the Ladies retreat, and I kinda knew that prior she had been in that lifestlye.  I did not care one bit.  One of these days I am going to get her to let me paint her toe nails LOL.  Sat. I had a G.S. class to go to.  All part of being a leader and earning my certificate. I perty much knew the basics and the class felt like a waste of time, but again it was nice to be kidless for a few hours.  Then Sat. evening spent with the family watching movies.  Sunday was a great service, I took notes and will probly share later.  Some things at church going on that I need to get out of me, but I am sure I should talk to my pastor before I start to form an ought agenst anyone lol.  Defently plan on going to the next buisness meeting.  That is what I love so much about my little church, if you have a concern or anything, you will be heard and taken serously.  Leadership is not beyonde correction. They know they are there to serve not to be served.   Also going on with me is my online prayergroup is growing and getting more active.  I am so blesed.

Got Daddy wraped around her little finger!

That is LillyBea my 3yrd up there and the last one is of all three of my girls.She is sooo cute and a ball of energy and she some how has won Daddy's good favor.Oh he should have never shared with me that she is his fav. Right now, he said he didn’t know why, that he loves each of them so much, but she is at a very cute age and his heart melts.Duh, she is a big manipulator already at 3!What's that Shakespeare Play with the King and the three daughters? King Lear? Well Lilly would of defiantly of been the one who won the largest part of the Kingdome.It all started with talks about snow. We told the girls that it may snow in the next month or so.  Well this got Lilly so excited, she exclaimed, when it snows SANTA WILL COME! I asked her why she says that, has she been a good girl? "Yes I have! I take my naps and even sleep when I am supposed to and I picked up my toys and I eat most of my dinner"Ofcourse this leads into what she wants for Christmas. Today she shared with me that she wants Santa to bring her earrings like Mommy's. I told her that getting your ears pierced hurts and we have to take care of them. Annie had gotten hers done at three and it was a disaster, I didn't want a repeat of history.So tonight Lilly told daddy what her and I had talked about, batting her big brown-sometimes-green eyes at him.Daddy smiled and gave me that OH HOW CAN WE SAY NO look.And now he is trying to talk me into letting him get her diamonds!NO WAY!! I didn't get my first pair of diamond earrings until last year lol,she should at least have to wait till she is 16! He said really he could get her a nice pair for $30.SO WHAT! It's the principle of the thing ya know.But you know Daddy thinks she deserves the BEST

"> I don't think I have made it a secret that I had an abortion and that I regret it.  Or that I have strong feelings about the subject.  But has a great website states on the matter this should be a factually issue not an emotional one. And if you visit that site you will see facts and figures and graphs, very informative.

I think abortion on demand is wrong.That these abortion clinics are not so much concerned about women’s health as much as they are about the money their service generates .Ask past employees, there is a high turn over rate in those places, why you think that is if they think they are helping women and not hurting them? More often its used as birth control then for medical issues to save her life or to stop a pregnancy caused by a rape or incest. (Look at the statistics)  Women who have this done believe the Lie that they will have a better life if they do this. But what happens is they face deep depression, higher rate abusing drugs and alcohol, suicide, more risk for breast cancer, and trouble carrying children to term due to scarring or botched abortions or the children they do have face higher risk of child abuse.

This news article prompted this post, and I haven’t even gotten into my thoughts about it and I am running out of room here. Guess that will have to be a post for another day.

Not so Simple Rules

">    Last night was the funeral episode for 8 Simple Rules and we watched it.  Yes I bawled threw the whole thing.  It was very hard for me to watch and my husband even asked as it started if we should turn it.  As some of you may know John Ritter was also the voice for the PBS cartoon Clifferd The Big Red Dog, and my kids LOVE that show.  So when John died it was to me like Clifferd died too.  But aside from that the whole episode was dealing with a fathers death and that is something I know all to well and that is why it was so hard for me to watch. My father died just after I turned 18, about the same age as those girls on that show.  It wasnt sudden like John's death, we knew it was coming, and no we wasn't real close like the girls from that show seemed to be with thier dad, but still I know what the pain is like. I am not sure if I should say bravo or boo to ABC for choosing to keep the show with out John. It is a very funny show but some how dosnt seem right with out him.

If we learn anything from his death I hope that it is WE ARE NOT PROMISED TOMOROW, DEATH CAN COME ANYTIME, FOR IT IS APOINTED ONCE FOR MAN TO DIE AND THEN THE JUDGMENT. Do not put off to tomorow what should be done today!

1 John 4:1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God

Sad that most ppl look at churches and religion and see the false, the lie, the ones on power trips. And because of this they can not get past it and get to the Truth and the heart of it all.  Clue, not all who claim to be Christians are.  Let's take the example of the wheat and the tares:  Mt 13:25 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.26 But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.27 So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares?29But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. 30Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.

Mt 13:38The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one 40As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.  I think this is the most sad vers in the whole Bible:

Matthew 7:22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

You Know who I'm talking about

He loved me first, a love so deep that I still can not fully comprehend it.  I had longed for him all my life and when we finally met it was life changing. In his arms I have a life that is complete, and abundant, that is safe from all that I fear.  In his presence all I feel is his warmth, his name is like the scent after the rain. He gives me such joy, that it’s unspeakable.   Our love is so intense; he is all I can think about, all I can talk about, all I can dream about.  His Words run over and over in me.  He sends me the best love letters that anyone could ever read and I hang on each line. He gives me the most beautiful gifts and when ever I am in need all I have to do is ask him and he already knows what it is and is ready to provide. He knows me to my very core. I can never thank him enough for all he has done for me. He has made me the person I am today.  How it hurts when those would spit on his name, when they would make fun of our love, when they hate him because they do not understand.  All that I endure is well worth it for I know He loves me and I long for the day when we can be face to face at our wedding dinner. He is the groom and I am his bride. To turn away from him is unthinkable; to fall in love with anything else would be so foolish, when he is all I ever wanted, all I ever needed. He is my first Love, all else comes second to him.

Part 2.

Denies the Father and the Son 1 John 2:22 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.

Denies the incarnation of Christ 1 John 4:3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.; 2 John 1:7 For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.

Spirit of, prevalent in apostolic times 1 John 2:18 Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.

Deceit, a characteristic of 2 John 1:7 For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.

Just wondering what the Definition of Anti-Christian is.

Let all of creation Testify

"> ">

Shall we worship the creation or the creator? 

Reading those chapters in Job, to me that is what came across.  Not for us to seek after the creation but to seek after the one who created it for the answers. All of creation testifys of our Might Lord.  All of it is his handy work.  But to worship the moon or the sun or the earth, or the elements,that is NOt what that chapters said at all. God Reveals Himself threw creation but doesnt expect us to worship the creation.

When we turn to anything other than God for answers or Power, we are rejecting him.  This is how I exsplained it to my children when the whole magic issue came up.When we do not depend on God we are depending on the Enemy. And as Christians we do not have to do that, for God has told us what ever we need he will provide, we do not need to rely on magic or anything else, to do so would be like telling God we do not belive him or what he has promised us.  The thing about Harry Potter is, as some think weed is the gateway drug, well Harry Potter is like the gateway book for the acult.

And more over I have no fear of those who talk with the dead or read tarro cards or draw power from other sources.  All I have to do is cast them out In Jesus Name, and the demons shall flee.  If those in Salm was as confident they had real demons among them that is all they should of done.  As we see with that fool Pelphs, anyone can twist scripture and turn it into what God has not intended.
