Valentine's Day Teenabend

We painted porcelan cups for Valentine's Day.  My mom is the best!  Our Theme was what love is.  Skyler translated the story of St. Valentines from English to German on the fly and Pappa taught that God is Love; eteranal , sacrifical, full of grace and Loyalty. 

    

Fathers building Daughters

I surmise that many young ladies find themselves in abusive relationships due to their father failing to teach them their great value and lovingly building in them confidence of their own competence.

Abusive men find weakness attractive as it offers no challenge.

The New More Congruent With Modern Knowledge Bible

After the Ken Ham vs Bill Nye debate, Pat Robertson told creationist Ken Ham to shut up: ‘Let’s not make a joke of ourselves’. He went on to try to marry his form of “faith” with “science’s” interpretation of geology and paleontology. Robertson has clearly rejected the Biblical account of Creation.

After listening to his unbelievable rant against Ken Ham, the idea occurred to me, If we were to errantly follow the Pat Robertsons of “ Christianity”, what would our Bible look like to reflect our altered beliefs?  So I did a quick search of Bible texts which we would have to remove in order to capitulate to the Atheist’s attack on our faith.

…”if God says the paths of the sea,"...

Matthew Fontaine Maury 1806-1873

He was driven by Biblical accuracy to which he became the founder of the science of oceanography.

Psalm 8;8 "whatsoever walketh through the paths of the sea,"

Who is in Control?

Cosmos is an interesting Greek word. It is no doubt based on the verb “komeo” which is "to take care of, provide for, to take up or carry away in order to care for and preserve for one’s self what is one’s own.” 

It is often correctly translated “world” as it is a place of escape from the harm of space. It is a creation of safety and providence. Out side of the “Goldilocks Zone” in which the earth is so precisely placed, space is very inhospitable. You are either cooked or frozen.

Dying Alternator!

AlternatorJust got back from the mechanic with the bad news about what is causing our little car to sound like it has a an electric motor. The bearings of the alternator are shot. It must be replaced.  We looked at the cost of a new one and I needed to sit down.  It is over $500! Please pray that God will open up another option.  I really detest solid state.  It was so much easier when you could buy a kit and rebuild your alternator.  

Surgery Success!

Thanks for all your prayers.  The surgery went well and I was released at 10 today.  We are now at home nursing my sore belly.  The Doc says to take it easy; no lifting, shoveling or bike ride for the next month.

Operation

I see the Doctor tomorrow at 9 for pre-op. and Tuesday, they fix my Hernia.  Hopefully, I will be out Wed. and back home that evening.

Thanks for praying.

When will testimony bear fruit?

Yesterday, at the hospital, I had a wonderful visit with a man that runs a youth shelter in a town south of Wittenberg.  I had a conversation with him months ago, but he clearly stated that he had no desire for church as he was not brought up in it.  We still had a great conversation and I had the opportunity to share Christ.
