Today my brother will be buried. He was 37 years old. "The pathway is broken And The signs are unclear And I don't know the reason why You brought me here But just because You love me the way that You do I'm gonna walk through the valley If You want me to " "Cause I'm not who I was When I took my first step And I'm clinging to the promise You're not through with me yet so if all of these trials bring me closer to you Then I will go through the fire If You want me to" "It may not be the way I would have chosen When you lead me through a world that's not my home But You never said it would be easy You only said I'd never go alone" "So When the whole world turns against me And I'm all by myself And I can't hear You answer my cries for help I'll remember the suffering Your love put You through And I will go through the darkness If You want me to " "When I cross over Jordan, I'm gonna sing, gonna shou

I'm Offensive

This blog is updated each Tuesday. Miss Crinkle Nose I often joke about getting a t-shirt printed that says, "I'm Offensive." I find it seriously funny that I have come to offend people and do so quite regularly. Boy do I. I make people mad. Christians say that the whole world can have differing opinions about things except for them. People get angry when we say homosexuality is sin or that we don't want to kill unborn children. We are dubbed "intolerant." I must say that we also have this mentality inside the body of Christ. If you home school or have a large family, I am sure you know what I mean. People are against you right out of the gate. When I talk about having a big family, most every Christian says that there are horrible days ahead of me. The worst part is coming. They are horrible when they. . .  In the past year (Laomai is almost one!) I thought that I must have a perfect baby because I never even one day felt any of the negative things I was to

" An intellectual solves a problem. A genius prevents it. "  - Albert Einstein I study. I read. I study. I read. I can guarantee that if I am discussing something with you that I have exhausted all sources of information I can find on it. I want to look it up from the most original source I can find, Google it, find the Latin root, and ask my friends their thoughts. I have found out something. People don't like educated people. We want to talk in hearsay and ideaology. We want to discuss meat and never eat it. We, as the body of Christ, are largely malnourished and ignorant.  I keep looking at people around me and I am perplexed. Why is no one discipling these people? How is it that we can be in a church 30 years and no one ever shows us the way to Live this Life in Christ? Why is it that we apply the ideas we add to the Bible so freely and easily (like smoking and drinking are bad), but we miss the message of the heart of God 's word? It is not a message of outward s

Who I am is quite enough

This Blog is updated each Tuesday.  Art inspires. I am a lover of the arts. I found myself looking at photos and paintings the other day that just ministered to my spirit. Sometimes there are feelings and passions that can be released no other way. I thought I would post a few things here and pray that they minister to you. If you are called, you are accountable.  Ezekiel 3:18 "When I say to a wicked man, 'You will surely die,' and you do not warn him or speak out to dissuade him from his evil ways in order to save his life, that wicked man will die for his sin, and I will hold you accountable for his blood." "God has promised to provide for you, to share His pleasure with you, to protect you, and to give you His enduring presence."  - Nancy Leigh DeMoss "We have switched from a call to full surrender to a card of 'commitment.'"- Joseph Tson "They are abundantly satisfied with the fulness of Your house, and You give them drink from the
