Sermon Notes-Will You Pass The Test?

Sermon Notes:  Will you pass the test?
Jude20-25 Question 1----Are you spending time daily in your bible? Question 2----Do you have a time of prayer between you and God? Question 3----Do you keep yourself in the love of God? Question 4----Are you looking for the Lord's return? Question 5----Are you winning souls to the Lord?
There are only 5 questions so they are worth 20 points each.  Did you pass the test?  If not God always allows retests so just get busy.  I for one know I want to retest and raise my score.
God bless, Pat

Instilling A Love Of Reading!

I have always loved to read and still do when I have time.  I loved reading to my kids when they were little and they loved to go to any program the library had for kids.  I have read to my grands some and they liked but recently they have really come alive with reading.
We took them to a party at the library for little ones on Halloween night and they had a blast. The first thing they wanted to know was when we could go back.  The next day we took them all back to check out their own books.  We found out the library has a reading program for little ones on Wednesdays at 10:30 am so we went today for the first time.  They had a blast listening to stories and then they made these cute little turkeys for Thanksgiving.   
 They got asked to have their turkeys posted on the library bulletin board.  They will get them back at the end of the month.  The girls could not wait to show Daddy their pictures on the wall.
Also their pediatrician has a reading program and every time they go …

Homeschool With Sick Kids!

I am homeschooling my youngest who is a senior in highschool.  Yesterday he was sick so we took a sick day and did no school.  Today he is better but still sick so he thought no school again today. Moma had other thoughts and plans.



This is what he was imagining  for today with maybe a little tv or playstation to make him feel better of course.
This is what Moma was imagining, we would do geometry, chemistry and all the classes anyway. I mean he is homeschooled so he can't make anybody sick.  I can give him medicine and everything and school would go on as planned. I taught him the lesson and gave him his assignments and when I came back this is what I found.
 Well, he is homeschooled, so I was nice and let him take a quick nap and now we are back to work. What do you that homeschool do when the sickies come to your house?  Do you take sick days or is it school as usual?Don't you love that with homeschool you do have so many options and yet still get all the work done.

This is my…

What represents God's love to you?

I was reading on a facebook page that I read quite often, Christian Womanhood,and the link to the page is https://www.facebook.com/ChristianWomanhood?ref=br_tf . Mrs. Loretta Walker talks about a book called "God is Crazy about Me"  that she wrote.  I have not read the book yet but it is on my wishlist of books I want.  In it she encourages ladies to have a personal relationship with God. She recommends reading your bible and also look for things in your life and how God shows you He loves you. She said, 
" One of the things that I was taught was to adopt something that represented God's love." Mine is redbirds.
     Why redbirds?  Years ago I read a book called "Redbirds, Rubies and Rainbows" by Mrs. Marlene Evans who was the founder of Christian Womanhood.  She said little unexpected blessings she called redbirds from God.  I started looking for redbirds and I saw those blessings.  I also started seeing redbirds everywhere.  I might have a need…

Peace, sweet peace!

I have been feeling overwhelmed and I talked to several of my friends.  There were some suggestions they almost all made.      They were...... 1) Take a walk                            2) Listen to music                            3) Pray                            4) Read your bible      I was lead to the book of Isaiah and these are the verses that stuck with me.  I am sharing them in hopes they will help me and ya'll! Read them, memorize them, post them where you can see them, think on them and claim them against the devil and the stresses. 1) Isaiah 26:3 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.      2)Isaiah 40:28  Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding.     3) Isaiah 40:31 But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles…
