Due to the weather conditions, services are cancelled tonight, Wednesday, March 15. – Pastor Stevens
We are switching to a new theme for our blog. It will take some time to get things set right. Thanks for your patience….
Genesis 1:1 “In the beginning God…”
A new year feels like a new beginning. Maybe that’s why there’s so much excitement over it, off with the old and on with the new. A chance to start over, learn from our mistakes and start fresh in the new year. The new year feels full of possibilities of what may and can be. Who doesn’t want a new lease on life?
This is exactly what every person gets when they accept Christ into their hearts and lives. Not a remodeling job, not a makeover or a refurbished heart and mind, but a brand new beginning. What sounds like a fairytale that’s too good to be true can become a reality. God tells us in the Bible, “If any man be in Christ, he is a NEW creature, old things are passed away, behold ALL THINGS ARE BECOME NEW.” 2 Corinthians 5:17
How about you? Are you wishing your life were different and that you could start all over? Well, you can. If you’ve never asked Christ to save you and forgive you of your sins and invited Him into your heart and life and make it brand new, you can today. Do it now right where you are and make this a new year of new beginnings!
“[Christ’s] wisdom is our direction, his knowledge our instruction, his power our protection, his justice our surety, his love our comfort, his mercy our solace, and his immutability our trust. He makes no reserve, but opens the recesses of the Mount of God and bids us dig in its mines for the hidden treasures.”
The following came from an anonymous Mother in Austin, Texas…
Things I’ve learned from my boys (honest and not kidding:
1.) A king size waterbed holds enough water to fill a 2000 sq. ft. house 4 inches deep
2.) If you spray hair spray on dust bunnies and run over them with roller blades, they can ignite.
3.) A 3-year old boy’s voice is louder than 200 adults in a crowded restaurant.
4.) If you hook a dog leash over a ceiling fan, the motor is not strong enough to rotate a 42 pound Boy wearing batman underwear and a Superman cape. It is strong enough, however, if tied to a paint can, to spread paint on all four walls of a 20×20 ft. room.
5.) You should not throw baseballs up when the ceiling fan is on. When using a ceiling fan as a bat, you have to throw the ball up a few times before you get a hit. A ceiling fan can hit a baseball a long way.
6.) The glass in windows (even double-pane) doesn’t stop a baseball hit by a ceiling fan.
7.) When you hear the toilet flush and the words “uh oh”, it’s already too late.
8.) Brake fluid mixed with Clorox makes smoke…….lots of it.
9.) A six-year old boy can start a fire with a flint rock even though a 36-year old man says they can only do it in the movies.
10.) Certain Lego’s will pass through the digestive tract of a 4-year old boy.
11.) Play dough and microwave should not be used in the same sentence.
12.) Super glue is forever
13.) No matter how much Jell-O you put in a swimming pool you still can’t walk on water.
14.) Pool filters do not like Jell-O.
15.) VCR’s do not eject “PB & J” sandwiches even though TV commercials show they do.
16.) Garbage bags do not make good parachutes.
17.) Marbles in gas tanks make lots of noise when driving.
18.) You probably DO NOT want to know what that odor is.
19.) Always look in the oven before you turn it on; plastic toys do not like ovens.
20.) The fire department in Austin, TX has a 5-minute response time.
21.) The spin cycle on the washing machine does not make earthworms dizzy.
22.) The spin cycle on the washing machine will, however, make cats dizzy.
23.) Cats throw up twice their body weight when dizzy.
24.) 80% of men who read this will try mixing the Clorox and brake fluid.
25.) 80% of women will pass this on to almost all of their friends, with or without kids.
a) For those with no children – this is totally hysterical
b) For those who already have children past this age, this is hilarious.
c) For those who have children this age, this is not funny.
d) For those who have children nearing this age, this is a warning.
