God is not Mocked

 Tuesday, May 31, 2011

It is written in the Bible (Galatians 6:7): 

'Be not deceived;  God is not mocked: 
for whatsoever a man sow, 
that shall he also reap. 

Here are some men and women 
who mocked God : 



John Lennon (Singer): 
Some years before, during his interview with an  American Magazine, he said: 
'Christianity will end, it will disappear. 
I  do not have to argue about 
that. I am certain. Jesus was ok, but his  subjects were too simple, today we 
are more famous than Him' (1966). 

Lennon, after saying that the Beatles were more famous than Jesus Christ,  
was shot six times. 

Tancredo Neves (President of Brazil ): 
During the Presidential  campaign, he said if he got 500,000 votes from his 
party, not even God would  remove him from Presidency. 
Sure he got the votes, but he got sick a day  before being made President, 
then he died. 

Cazuza (Bi-sexual Brazilian composer, singer and poet): 
During A  show in Canecio ( Rio de Janeiro ), 
while smoking his cigarette, he puffed  out some smoke into the air and 
said:'God, that's for you.' 

He died at the age of 32 of LUNG CANCER in a horrible manner. 


The man who built the Titanic 
After the construction of  Titanic, a reporter asked him how safe the Titanic 
would be. 
With an ironic  tone he said: 
'Not even God can sink it' 
The result: I think you all  know what happened to the Titanic 

Marilyn Monroe (Actress) 
She was visited by Billy Graham during a  presentation of a show. 
He said the Spirit of God had sent him to preach to  her. 
After hearing what the Preacher had to say, she said: 
'I don't need  your Jesus'. 
A week later, she was found dead in her apartment 

Bon Scott (Singer) 
The ex-vocalist of the AC/DC. On one of his 1979  songs he sang:  
'Don't stop me; I'm going down all the way, down the  highway to hell'.
On the 19th of February 1980, Bon Scott was found  dead, he had been choked 
by his own vomit. 

Campinas (IN 2005) 
In Campinas , Brazil a group of friends, drunk, went  to pick up a 
friend..... 
The mother accompanied her to the car and was so  worried about the 
drunkenness of her friends and she said to the daughter  holding her hand, 
who was already seated in the car: 

My Daughter, Go With God And May He Protect You.' 
She responded: 'Only  If He (God) Travels In The Trunk, Cause Inside 
Here.....It's Already Full '  
Hours later, news came by that they had been involved in a fatal  accident, 
everyone had died, 
the car could not be recognized what type of  car it had been, but 
surprisingly, the trunk was intact. 
The police said  there was no way the trunk could have remained intact. To 
their surprise, inside  the trunk was a crate of eggs, none was broken 

Christine Hewitt (Jamaican Journalist and entertainer) 
said the Bible  (Word of God) was the worst book ever written. 
In June 2006 she was found  burnt beyond recognition in her motor vehicle. 
Many more important  people have forgotten that there is no other name that 
was given so much  authority as the name of Jesus. 

Many have died, but only Jesus died and rose again, and he is still alive

Memorial Day

 Monday, May 30, 2011

This just amazes me...It's just awesome to know that there are still honorable, diligent young men out there! Men that are willing to serve in such a dedicated fashion. I am so proud of every branch of our military!!!! Thank you for serving your country. Thank you for fighting for our freedom's and liberties.

Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you...

Jesus Christ and the American Soldier

One for your soul, the other for your freedom


ARLINGTON  CEMETERY  

Tomb of the Unknown Soldier

 1.  How many steps does the guard take during his 
 walk across the  tomb of the Unknowns and why?




 21  steps:  It alludes to the twenty-one gun salute which 
 is the highest honor given any military or foreign dignitary.  



2. How long does he hesitate after his about face to begin his  return walk and why?  

21 seconds for the same reason as answer number 1



3. Why are his gloves wet?  


His gloves are moistened to prevent his losing  his grip on the rifle.



4.  Does he carry his rifle on the same shoulder all the  time and, if not, why not?  

He carries the rifle on the shoulder away from the tomb. After his  march across the path, he executes an about face and moves the rifle to the outside  shoulder. 



5. How often are the guards changed?



Guards are changed every thirty minutes, 
twenty-four hours a day,  365 days a year.



6. What are the physical traits of the guard limited  to?  

For a person to apply for guard duty at the tomb, he must be between 5' 10' and 6' 2' tall and his waist size cannot exceed  30.  

They must commit 2 years of life to guard the tomb, live in a  barracks under the tomb, and cannot drink any alcohol on or off duty  for the rest of their lives. They cannot swear in public for the rest of their lives and cannot disgrace the uniform or the  tomb in any way.  

After two years, the guard is given a wreath pin that is worn on their lapel signifying they served as guard of the tomb. There  are only 400 presently worn. The guard must obey these rules  for the rest of their lives or give up the wreath pin.     

The shoes are specially made with very thick soles to keep the heat  and cold from their feet. There are metal heel plates that extend to the top of the  shoe in order to make the loud click as they come to a halt.  

There are no wrinkles, folds or lint on the uniform. Guards dress for duty in front of a full-length mirror. 

The  first six months of duty a guard cannot talk to anyone nor watch  TV. All off duty time is spent studying the 175 notable people laid to rest in Arlington National   Cemetery. A guard must memorize who they are and where 
they are interred.  


Among the notables are: 

President  Taft,  

Joe  Lewis {the boxer}  

Medal of  Honor winner Audie L. Murphy, the most 

decorated soldier of WWII  and of Hollywood fame. 

Every guard spends five hours a day  getting his uniforms ready for guard duty..



ETERNAL REST GRANT THEM O LORD AND LET PERPETUAL LIGHT SHINE UPON  THEM.

In 2003 as Hurricane Isabelle was approaching Washington, DC,  our US Senate/House took 2 days 
off with anticipation of the  storm. On the ABC 
evening news, it was reported that because of  
the dangers from the hurricane, the military 
members  assigned the duty of guarding the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier were given permission to suspend the assignment. They respectfully declined the offer, "No way, Sir!" Soaked to the skin, marching in the 
pelting rain of a tropical storm, they  said that guarding
the Tomb was not just an assignment, it was the highest honor that can be afforded to a serviceperson.  The tomb has been patrolled continuously, 24/7, since 1930.  


 God Bless and keep them. 

We can  be very proud of our young men and women in the  service no matter where they serve.

IN   GOD WE  TRUST 


Blessings, ♥T

Changes...

 Saturday, May 28, 2011

So I have decided to go ahead and share some of the changes going on around here...

Change number one...We are moving!!! Finally, finally, finally...Our house sold! We've been trying to sell it for over a year! We hate living so far from family. We do not like the heat and humidity where we live. And we are REALLY sick of allergies causing us to be sick all the time! The exact location hasn't been determined, but it will definitely be closer to our families.

Change number two...Well, I'll let you look around and figure that one out ☺(when you figure it out...don't say anything publicly if you know me in "real" life! lol)

Oh, and I fixed the links from my last post...sorry bout that, I must have not actually copied it when I thought I had!

Blessings, ♥T

A Week of Craziness...

 Wednesday, May 25, 2011

So much has happened this week. Craziness!

The tornadoes have wreaked havoc across the midwest. The devastation is awful! A distant relative of mine was missing. He has been found but is in critical condition. Our dear friends have lost their home and vehicles. So many lives have been lost. Yesterday I was so worried for my friends (all of them ☺) that I spent most of it in tears. I couldn't even pray past "PLEASE LORD!!!" Today the tears are for their loss and the loss of so many others. The sadness is overwhelming.

Kathleen was sick starting on Sunday. She was sleeping a lot during the day (very unusual for her cause she doesn't even take naps anymore) and then her fever spiked over 104. I could get it to stay down by alternating tylenol and ibuprofen and doing cool baths, but if I let more than 3 hrs pass it would spike again. Then she got uncontrollable diarrhea. I waited till the next day to see if it would go away. Spent most of the night up with her. Had to give her a bath in the middle of the night, not fun for either of us. The next day was pretty much the same...Called the Dr to try to get her in and they were booked. Transfered me down to Urgent Care and they were booked too (they're by appt) so they told me to take her to the ER. Now I totally prefer to do things naturally first, but high fevers worry me. Along with the fact that she was screaming and climbing the back of the couch cause she was in pain. So I wanted her checked just to make sure there wasn't anything weird going on. (I live in a small town and there were only 2-3 other people in the entire ER besides me, for those worried about me taking up precious space in the ER) The Dr, who happened to be the one we like, said it was probably viral. Seems to be going around. Because we're on well water though, he gave antibiotics just in case. The next day she was fine, so there was no need for the antibiotics. No fevers and the diarrhea was clearing up. Today no diarrhea, just gotta clear up the rash from it. Several other kiddos are getting it now, without the fevers though.

Makenzie lost 2 teeth. So far on all her teeth she has gotten completely hysterical when they get pulled. The first one this week...She came to me with dental floss so I could pull it. I worked on it to get a slip knot ready, which I'm not really good at. I had just finally gotten it done and she says "I pulled it!!" I was like "What?! You pest, I just finally got the knot in! Now what am I supposed to do with this dental floss???" ;) LOL...She just laughed and I threw it away....Funny girl...a couple days later she told me another one was really loose, so I said ok tell me when you want me to get the floss ready...a few minutes later she triumphantly held it up for me to see. She pulled it by herself again! She was so happy...DH told her since she was so brave he was gonna pay her $1.50 for both teeth! (We do not do the tooth fairy thing, But most of the time for the first 8 teeth or so we give $.25-$.50 per tooth) It's just so funny to me cause she is my hysterical dramatic child. She used to FREAK out if she got drips of water on her, used to scare me to death over the most silly things.

Zachary has been starting to talk lately. So cute! Says "girls, James Michael, dad, mom, cup"...the other day he found a flashcard with the #8 on it. He was showing it to me, so I pointed to the 8 and said "It's the number 8" Then he pointed at it and said "it's uh 8" LOL...I have another child genius! (yes, I have several of those, but I'm kinda prejudice :D (seriously Michelle is though, she just turned 6 and is doing 2nd grade and I think she could do 3rd with no problem!)

We have been having garage sales this week and have actually done pretty well. At least we're getting rid of things. Stuff = Stress in my opinion. There is just a point (different for each person) where the amount of stuff starts to overwhelm me. Trying to find places to put it, keep it clean, keep it organized...I hate clutter and Love to get rid of stuff! Garage sales or good will :)

Had my 15 yr high school reunion. All by myself :) That's what happens when you're a homeschool graduate! LOL...It was so fun catching up with all my old friends ;)

Found THIS article to be very good...and THIS one to be interesting...and THIS one (snappy answers for stupid questions about your big family) to be hysterically funny! The last one I think everyone should read!!! SUPER FUNNY!

Blessings, ♥T

Additional Prayer Request

I have family and friends who were affected by the tornado. One relative is missing. Our very best family friends (they and their 10 children) are safe, but they've lost their house and all their vehicles. The death toll keeps rising, and there are so many missing...Please Pray!

Blessings, ♥T

Please God or Man...

 Monday, May 23, 2011

Well, those are the options. So I'm gonna go with God. I'm sorry if not everyone agrees with what they read here. (You don't have to read it if you don't like it though☺) This is my blog. My thoughts. My views on things. I realize not everyone will agree with everything I put on here and that's fine. What I write here, I write for myself and for those who care or want to read it. I don't write it because I'm judging or condemning anyone. I'm simply writing what I believe the Bible is saying to me, you're free to read the Bible and see what it's saying to you :D

Prayer Request

I'd like to ask all of you who are reading this to please pray for the people in Joplin, MO and in NE OK who have been affected by the tornadoes. The devastation is severe and they greatly need our prayers. Personal request on that...I have family in the area and as yet don't know if EVERYONE is safe. I know some are, but please pray! Pray for everyone to be found, for the families to be comforted in their loss (of family or homes), pray for there to be no more injured, and pray for the ER workers to have the strength and energy to do their jobs!



Blessings, ♥T

100 posts!!!

 Friday, May 20, 2011

Wow! I can't believe I have posted 100 times! Crazy! I had been thinking of doing something "extra" special for this post, but with the happenings around here I just haven't found the time. We have been super busy with some big changes that I'll explain later. Fun Stuff! :D  So, since I don't have much time I thought I'd just do a quick post. Typing in each letter of the alphabet, one at a time, I found all the sites I've been to alphabetically. It was kinda interesting actually, at least to me...Sorry if this is "boring" to some of you ☺ So, here we go A-Z

Out here...

 Monday, May 9, 2011

Well, out here in our world things have been pretty interesting. About a week ago Jason burned his arm pretty bad. 2nd degree burn. It was very painful. I put aloe very gel on it as soon as it happened and then followed with colloidal silver gel til it scabbed and then he's been putting lanolin on it to help it finish healing up. It looks much better now!





The weekend of Easter Kathleen and Zachary had croup, which then turned into bronchitis for Kathleen and an upper respiratory infection for Zachary. :(  They finally got over that and now we're dealing with a stomach bug! :P I have 2 kiddos left to get it. Hopefully they'll get it and get over it quick. It seems to be a quick thing. PTL!




So sweet even when he's sick!

We are working on getting our place cleaned up and getting rid of stuff. Have someone coming out this week to look at our place. We're really hoping it will sell. All of our family lives far away (in the same state) and we'd really like to be closer to them. Guess we'll see what the Lord has in store for us though :D

One of our chickens has been hatching her eggs. 8 so far, but more are trying to break through! So fun for the kids! They think it's so cool! Two of our goats appear to be in labor, but no babies yet. The signs are hard to read since we have no idea when they were bred. (sometime before we got them) And some of the signs can be days or hours before impending birth. So it's kinda all guess work till the baby comes :D Birth is such an awesome thing. We tremendously enjoy babies around here :D

Blessings, ♥T
