I am very excited about these events and really hope that in some small way i can make a difference in a life For His Glory.

The song the i have had on my heart all day is Give me yours eyes by Brandon Heath.
the song goes like this:

Look down from a broken sky
Traced out by the city lights
My world from a mile high
Best seat in the house tonight

Touch down on the cold black top
Hold on for the sudden stop
Breath in the familiar shock
Of confusion and chaos
All those people going somewhere
Why have I never cared

Give me your eyes for just one second
Give me your eyes so I can see
Everything that I keep missing
Give me your love for humanity
Give me your arms for the broken hearted
The ones that are far beyond my reach
Give me you heart for the ones forgotten
Give me your eyes so I can see

Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah

Step out on a busy street
See a girl and our eyes meet
Does her best to smile at me
To hide what's underneath
There's a man just to her right
Black suit and a bright red tie
Too ashamed to tell his wife
He's out of work, He's buying time


Ive been here a million times
A couple of million eyes
Just move and pass me by
I swear I never thought that I was wrong
I need a second glance
Give me a second chance
To see the way youve seen the people all along

The chorus really is what i have been singing all day and is my prayer for the month.

We all think of words like Love, faith,goodness, joy, peace, hope, mercy and many words like them as nouns or adjectives. but they are matter of fact and more importantly VERBS!!!!!
Actions, conscious choices.

In Loving Memory........

Tonight we lost our wonderful Aunt Wendy, but we are thankful that she is pain free and is sitting at the feet of Jesus.

We were blessed to have her and thankful for all the smiles, the laughs and the Love of Jesus she showed everyone.

Love and Miss you!!!!!!!

Dr. McMurtry is a recognized international speaker on the subject of creation vs. evolution, both from a biblical viewpoint as well as that of secular science.

His insights into the events of the past will stir your spirit and affirm in your heart the truth about the biblical record of creation, the Flood and Man.

Dr. McMurtry has credentials as a scientist, an expert school board witness and a visiting professor on school, college and university campuses around the world. All persons, Jr. High through Adult, will be captivated by his grasp of the facts, open style and love for the Lord.

Dr. McMurtry was an evolutionist for twenty years prior to being convinced of the scientific foundation for the creation viewpoint. Dr. McMurtry addresses this issue on the basis of science and contends for the truth of the Biblical account of creation and its tremendous relevance to our lives. The topics in this series are: Foundations; The Waters Cleaved; Why I Believe In A Young Creation; Absolutely No Truth to Global Warming; and, Dino-Mania.

“The Creation Bookstore” will also be available. It’s so hard to know the best books on such a wide range of subjects that are suitable for each age group. This is your opportunity to buy! Home-schoolers looking for curriculum will want to review the titles on the book and tape tables.

Pastor Forsthoff invites and encourages the community to attend this life changing series on Creation Our Foundation.

this week...
Noah starts school

Haley continues homeschooling she loves it but i'm not so sure. I am having a hard time adjusting. I think it more that i am not good with schedules and so i am being stretched in that area.

Tuesday morning bible study......woohoo

youth Wednesday night

i need to get my financial aid other things taken care for my schooling.

I also am trying to keep up on the housework.

I know i have forgotten a lot but i think you get the hint.

Praying for supernatural stregth and grace to get everything done.

truths to live by.....

what great reminders.......

I want this on my wall

I would love to put this on my wall in the living room somehow.

Dance like no one is watching,
Sing like no one is listening,
Love like you have never been hurt before,
Live like heaven begins tomorrow.

I saw this on a picture at the christian bookstore and it just really has got me thinking. I love the picture and i'm thinking Christmas maybe hint hint....maybe.

I think that it just a good reminder that life is short and that we need to take every minute seriously. We are not promised tomorrow but his his grace sufficient to get us from moment to moment. I just hope that i can start breaking away from my little shell and live by these inspiring words.
