Happy 19th Birthday to my sweet Candace.

Yesterday I was reading the thoughts of a young friend on Twitter on how he (sorry if I got the gender wrong) felt that there was no God or if there was a God He had abandon him because of all the pain in his life. As part of my response I told him that "God did not promise us a life free of trouble, but he did promise we would not have to face it alone." My friend was not receipted to this thought, so I let it go. But the conversation did make me think about my own reaction to crises in my life. Do I really believe the words I gave my young friend?
 
I thought back over this past week which was pretty much a week from hell and how many times I questioned God why. Then I thought back to the many times in my life that I was in a bad situation that seemed to have no end. Looking back I can see that no matter how frustrated I was with God or how much I questioned Him He really did always stay by my side. So the answer is yes I believe that God has never left me alone to face trouble no matter how bad the situation.
 
Jesus said "In this world you will have trouble. But take heart I have over come the world" (John 16:33b NIV). I have to wonder how many times I have let the world win when the battle was already won for me. Probably several times this week alone. I just hope the next time I face more trouble I will remember that the battle is already won and who won it for me.

Cool!

He Has Risen

The angel said to the woman, "Do not be afraid for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; He has risen, just as He said. Come and see the place where He lay.  Then go quickly and tell His disciples: He has risen form the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him . Now I have told you." Matthew 28:6-7

Happy Easter everyone !

Harrowing day! Was driving a friends daughter and the daughter's son back to her house (after an Doctor's appointment in another town) in their car when the breaks went out. Everyone is ok but it scared the living daylights out of me and left an huge dent in the car. The worst part was that we were on a really busy highway when it happened. Was able to turn off it but was going too fast, fished tailed and hit a  big rock decoration on my side.Thankfully was able to get everyone home ok and the police did not ticket me. But I have to really praise God that the brakes did not go out while we were on the freeway or we would probably be dead.

Jessie Spence did a  Q&A this evening after the east coast airing of tonight's episode of House. Even though I managed to totally embarrass myself by mis-spelling scene, in my hurry, JS did answer my question. :D

Sorry this is a day late. I hope everyone had a wonderful  New Year's eve and day.  2009 was a rough year for me as it was for many others. Let face it, the whole decade was a rough one as someone pointed out to me. So it is my prayer that this year and decade may be a better one for all. Happy 2010.

As I and my family celebrate this Christmas and open our gifts I would like to take time to mention the best gift of all:

Suddenly, an angel of the Lord appeared among them, and the radiance of the Lord’s glory surrounded them. They were terrified, but the angel reassured them. “Don’t be afraid!” he said. “I bring you good news that will bring great joy to all people. The Savior—yes, the Messiah, the Lord—has been born today in Bethlehem, the city of David!

“For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.

By His grace are you saved. . . it is the gift of God

God bless you all.

Merry Christmas!

The Carol of the Bells has always been one of my favorite Christmas carols but I had never really learn the lyrics to it.  So this year I decided to look it up and share it with my friends. Any mistakes are mine.

The Carol of the Bells
(Originally composed Mykola Dmytrovych Leontovych)
(English language version by Peter Wilhousky)

Hark how the bells,
sweet silver bells,
all seem to say,
throw cares away
Christmas is here,
bringing good cheer,
to young and old,
meek and the bold,
ding dong ding
that is their song
with joyful ring
all caroling

Merry, merry, merry, merry Christmas,
Merry, merry, merry, merry Christmas,

one seems to hear
words of good cheer
from everywhere
filling the air
Oh how they pound,
raising the sound,
o'er hill and dale,
telling their tale,
Gaily they ring
while people sing
songs of good cheer,
Christmas is here,

Merry, merry, merry, merry Christmas,
Merry, merry, merry, merry Christmas,
On on they send ,
on without end,
their joyful tone to every home
Dong Ding dong ding, dong Bong
