While I shall miss the pic of hubby and I at the Great Wall, this new avatar is nice. It's a pic of David and I from my mom's b-day par-tay. Thanks, Coco, for fixing it for me...it looks much less washed out than the color version! So no more gangsta look for us. You likeeeeeee?
I've gotten into the very very very bad habit of staying up late. It is 1am and I'm tired, but not as tired as I should be. There is something about the peace and quiet in the house after the kids are in bed.
Of course, I greatly regret my choice when morning comes and my head is pounding as Dozer climbs in my bed and says Come ooooooonnnnn mommmmyyyyy!!!!! He's most likely eaten breakfast already (dry cereal that he can get out of the cabinet)...so I think he just gets bored. His choice of playmate is an unfortunate by-product of too much spoiling by yours truly... Did I mention that he's cute though? And it's hard to resist his charms? It's bad enough when I fall off the child training wagon, let alone the SELF-training wagon!
Well, I guess I should go. Please pray for dh's uncle. Aunt Lena died last night after a lengthy battle with cancer. I am unsure of her salvation. She was a very "good" person...nice, funny, FUN. But the Bible says that there is only ONE way to heaven...through Jesus Christ. Not of ourselves. Not of our works. Not of our personality. Only through CHRIST!
One of the greatest gifts you can leave your children and family is the absolute knowledge that you have given your life to Jesus Christ. If I were to die right this very moment, could you be sad for me if you KNEW without a doubt that I was in heaven and in the presence of Almighty God?
Where will you spend eternity? Have you done all that you can to show your children the way?
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
Besides The Holy Bible (KJV), I have found this resource to be very helpful with my children...as well as my Wednesday night Masters Club class.
