Jesus Will Answer

 He will give His angels charge of you to guard you in all your ways.  Psalm 91:11

   Once a poor Chinese women went up to the foothills to cut grass. Her baby was tied to her back, and a little child walked beside her.
   Just as she reached the top of a hill, she heard a roar. Frightened, she turned and saw a mother tigress springing at her, followed by her two cubs.
   The illiterate Chinese woman had never attended school or church, but a missionary once told her about Jesus, "who is able to help you when you are in trouble," As the tiger's claws tore into her arm, the women cried out, "O Jesus' help me!" The tiger, instead of attacking again, suddenly turned and run away.
  What "beasts" are attacking you? Chances are you will never be attacked by a wild tiger, but you will be attacked by doubts, fears, worry, loneliness, or despair.
  Cry out to Jesus and He will answer you just as surely  as the Chinese woman's desperate cry was heard and answered.

Three Little Swimmers

Ava
Gracie
Mya

This is our three little swimmers. Ava, Gracie and Mya. We have been swimming for couple of days now. The are the first ones  in the pool. It has been so nice in WV we are all loving it.

A Positive Influence

 Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed.   Romans 12:2

   The casual, wordly christian is prepared to do as the world does and will condone practices that are dishonest and unethical because he is afraid of the world's displeasure. He ignores the Bible's clear command: "Do not be conformed to this world."
   Only by a life of obedience to the voice of the Spirit, by a daily dying to self, by a full dedication to christ and constant fellowship with Him are we enabled to live a godly life and have a positive influence on this present ungodly world. Is the world changing you...or are you changing the world?

Mom bought Baby Signing Time for Gracie. She loves watching it. She has learned alot from it. This videos help her to know things in sing language. This pack came with some books, flash cards and videos.  It is great. We are trying to learn it too. It is always good to know something good like this. If you know this you could communicate with other people that can't talk or hear.

Andrew and his Brother In-Law (Keith)



Today my brother in-law Keith made me smile. He told my Mom to take all the big girls and his wife out and he will do Andrew and rest of the crew. Oh my he made us all laugh. He tried to talk like me so Andrew could eat. He was funny. We all have been blessed having him as part of our family. He is good with his kids (two girls) and my sisters and brothers.He is good Dad and a husband. If you know my sister Mary Kate he is her husband.

A Great Gift

The kingdom of God is...righteousness and peace and joy in the holy Spirit.  Romans 14:17

To the great gift of forgiveness God adds the great gift of the Holy Spirit. He is the source of power who meets our need to escape from the miserable weakness that grips us. He gives us the power to be truly good, as we yield ourselves to Him.
 If we are to live a life of sanity in our modern world, if we wish to be men and women who can live victoriously, we need the two sided gift God has offered us. First, the work of the Son of God for us; second, the work of the Spirit of God in us. In this way God has answered humanity's two great cries: the cry for forgiveness and the cry for goodness.

God's Perfect Plan

Romans 12:2  Be transformed...that you may prove what is that...perfect will of God.

The Bible reveals that God has a plan for every life, and that if we live in constant fellowship with Him, He will direct and lead us in the fulfillment of this plan.
 God does not reveal His plan through fortune-tellers, astrologers, soothsayers, and workers of hocus-pocus. His perfect will is reserved for those who have trusted Christ for salvation. He shares His secrets only with those who are redeemed and transformed, and who humbly seek His will for their lives.
  You cannot know the will of God for your life unless you first come to the cross and confess that you are a sinner and receive Christ as Lord and Savior. Once you do come to Him, you begin a whole new life-life not lived for yourself but for Christ. From that moment on God wants to show you His will. Whatever decisions you face today, commit them to God and ask Him to guide you-and He will.

I excepted Jesus Christ as my savior several years ego. He has changed me so much. My life has been blessed since that day. He has answered my prayers when ever I need it. He has been my guided friend.

Gracie playing b-ball




We have been having nice weather last of couple days. Our favorite thing is being outside and playing soccer or b-ball. Gracie loves being outside and playing b-ball. I think her favorite sport is  b-ball. She is getting to a part where she make a shot. Then she gets all happy. She is good at it. God has given her a gift to play b-ball. I am thankful for that.

Our walking Andrew :)

Here is some more videos of Andrew walking. Wow he is doing so well. He has been walking more and more. Amazing. Thank you Jesus.

Walk in the Spirit

Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.  Galatians 5:16

To walk means to place one foot in front of other and to go forward one step at a time. If you stop doing this, you are no longer walking. You are standing still-or worse, going back wards. Walking always implies movement, progress, and direction.
   This is what it means to walk with God. It means moving forward in step with Him, confident that the way He is leading is best.
   The problem is that we are weak. We stumble or get diverted, or get weary and stop moving forward. But that is one reason why the Holy Spirit has been given to us. Galatians 5:16 could be paraphrased this way: "Walk by means of the Spirit."
  One of the highest commendations in the Bible is found in these words about Noah: "Noah was a just man, perfect in his generation. Noah walked with God" (Gen.6:9). could this be said of us?

I was surprised :)

Mary has surprised me at Chick-Fill-A last Thursday. She came to visit her family last Tuesday. That Thursday she, my Mom and Joseph made a plan to take me and see her that night. I can't even tell you how surprised  I was. I didn't even know what I was going to say.I was so surprised. I am so thankful that God had made a plan to meet again. She lives so for away we don't get to see each other much. I am so thankful that God had created mail and email that is how we stay in contact. If you know Mary she is Godly woman. I love seeing her how she serves our God. When I see her I can tell she loves God with all her heart.
  Mary thank you for your friendship and love. I have been blessed to have you as my sister. I love you and hope to see you soon.
