Yes, it is! HA. What can I say I'm my Mother's daughter:)
And out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks:)
*gotta love the phones in the hotel bathrooms (AND the free toilet paper)
So yes, I love the Lord and love my husband and kids with all my heart so that is what I seem to talk about the most and what is constantly on my mind.
Therefore that is what I blog mostly about...
I am proud to say that if you know me you know I love Jesus. I don't hide it and I'm sorry if I annoy you when that's what I'm most excited to talk about. And maybe I do blog about Jesus because sadly I can't seem to find enough people around me who have ears that want to hear and who share the same excitement of talking about Him as I do.
On this blog I have found those friends and I love to share and talk with you all:)
Do your neighbors, friends,family, coworkers know that you love Jesus?
Do you like to talk about Him?
Is it a chore to read the bible or spend time with Him?
Or do you love to talk about Him and are hungry for the Word of God and excited to learn more about Him?
I enjoyed reading all your thoughts on Halloween. Thank you all for taking the time to share on the topic. My husband and I spent last night reading through them and looking at the different links.
I love to see so many like minded friends in blogland. I thank you for your words of wisdom and you are truly a blessing to me. I also want to thank some of you for your emails. Some emails were full of questions about me being legalistic. It's not the first time I have been called that.
Let me just say that........
I don't mean to post to get everyone up in a hype. (although I love a good debate and wish someday to have a spot on The View)Ha..
But for now I think this blog is just a great place to share (meet)and discuss what's on MY heart and what MY OWN convictions are. I also think it's a great place to learn from others as you share too.
I am NOT saying that if you don't homeschool you are a bad Christian.
I am NOT saying that if you use birth control you are bad.
I am NOT saying that if you have a tattoo it's a sin.
I am NOT saying that if you wear a bikini etc...(I can't remember all the things that were said) that you are a bad lukewarm Christian.
I am just saying that FOR ME and as I seek God more in my life and read the Bible I AM convicted in these area's. Even things that a year ago I had no clue I ever thought were wrong I see now FOR ME that they were. I agree that in the grey area's we have to deal with as Christians we need to search scripture and our own hearts and pray before making decisions. I PERSONALLY try not to compromise. For example: It's not that having a beer is bad (I)just choose not to and to be honest I don't even care to or am tempted to. If I saw you having a beer I would not judge you. Please know that! I choose to live MY life and raise MY family to glorify God. With this as MY main goal in life I try to test EVERYTHING by "is this glorifying God and is this bringing me closer to Him. Is this helping in raising MY children for His kingdom???
*yes my boys are wearing skeleton shirts. I don't feel convicted by them wearing them. I don't see anything wrong with bones. You might.
I don't let my kids watch certain things, (even Scooby Doo) Not because I think they will grow up to be into witch craft or anything just because I don't see how watching it will help them in their walk with the Lord. I would rather them spend time watching something like a DVD from Wonder Kids or something along those lines...
I don't let my kids listen to secular music not because I think it's all bad I just would rather them listen to songs that are about Jesus or will make their little minds think on good things! I love to see them worship. I thank God for stations like Air1.
For example my son loves to play Guitar Hero so instead of playing that we bought him Guitar Praise. (and NO I don't think you are bad if your child plays Guitar Hero.) I am just saying that in OUR (house, hotel or RV HA) I try my BEST to raise godly children.
I was reading Luke last night and I think a good set of rules to live by are:
Truth before Tradition
Serving before Spending
Loving before Lifestyle
Excepting before Accusing
I really gave all these much thought. They are up on the hotel fridge!
I had to really read over them and really think about what they mean. I think as Christians these are good rules to live by.
and one last thing...
I pray my kids will continue to be excited to talk about Jesus and spend time with Him.
My two oldest (age 8 and 10) have just completed the training of
They are excited to get their dog tags in the mail and are up for the DARE and I couldn't be more proud.
