The Adventures of Tintin 2011
Tintin is one of my favorite movies. I love the graphics, humor, and the thrill of the unknown. I could honestly watch it once a week every week and never get sick of it! All around I think it's a movie the whole family will love.
Who’s Report Will You Believe?
(This is a song I heard today in church)
Will you believe
We shall believe
The report of the Lord
His report says
I am healed
His report says
I am filled
His report says
I am free
His report says victory
(The last several months now, dairy has been bothering my stomach and making me fatigued. I assumed it was a lactose intolerance deal, but I'd never actually gotten diagnosed. Last Sunday my pastor had everyone who needed healing to raise their hand during prayer, so I raised my hand seeking healing for this problem. I am going to be honest, I forgot I had raised my hand, and did not think about it until a couple days later. I've had cerial with real milk, eaten icecream, buttercream on cake, and had at least two cups of milk since last Sunday. No pain, no fatigue. I am healed! This song just reminds me of that healing and I am so thankful I serve a living God.)
Mr. Myogi had a perfect white mustache on his upper lip, and carried a wise look in his eyes. He had ninja skills that I never taught him. He could skillfully climb up my skirt without grabbing skin and perch on my shoulder so we could conquer the world together. Cream and milk was his favorite snack, and often gave him a third white patch on his chin. He wasn't a very active cat, he never hunted, but his strange ninja skills were always ready to go.
Sadly this old man passed away several years ago and has proven to be the best cat I've ever owned.
If Dinos Still Roamed
Humans are constantly adapting to the changes of this world. If dinosaurs had continued to roam Earth, I believe we'd be far more advanced than we are now. Dino proof housing, dino killing weapons, protective and efficient means of travel. Maybe even ways to tame the animals and make them into "watch dogs". We'd probably know what Dino eggs taste like. Who knows, maybe we'd even go dinosaur hunting for the Thanksgiving T.Rex.
If we as humans don't adapt, we'd probably all be dead. So, in the scenario dinos did in fact still live, we'd have to adapt and evolve if we wanted to stay alive.
Bible Verses Concerning Taking Life, Such as an Unborn Child
I know this is a touchy subject, but it's really been on my mind the last several days. So first, for a little bit of background as to why I am even posting something like this...
I never agreed with the thought of abortion, but I didn't know why I didn't. I had no "logical" response when someone asked me why I didn't support it. So I did a bit of a search online and found Bible verses, and then went through my Bible and checked that they matched with the Word. And they did. So, for anyone out there interested what the Bible says about protecting life, or the unborn, or the innocent, here are eight verses from my King James Version Bible.
Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee;
(God knew who we were before we came into this world. Makes me think an unborn child matters greatly to God)
If men strive, and hurt a woman with child, so that her fruit depart from her, and yet no mischief follow: he shall be surely punished according as the husband sit upon him; and he shall pay as the judges determine.
23 And if any mischief follow, then though shalt give life for life.
(If a child is murdered before it's birth, the murder is to be killed. A life for a life)
Thou shalt not kill.
(I never read, Thou shalt not kill, except for the unborn. It clearly states, Thou shalt not kill)
Keep the far from false matter; and the innocent and righteous slay thee not: for I will not justify the wicked.
(Slay not the innocent. The unborn at any stage of growth is innocent)
I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:
(Choose life. That simple)
Lo, children are the heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.
(We are God's heritage. And before we are born we are his reward)
Open thy mouth for the dumb in the cause of all such as are appointed to destruction.
(Dumb means those who can't speak. We are to speak for those who can't speak for themselves, in the moment when they are to be sentenced to die)
A lot of people who try to justify abortions go to Numbers 5, so I thought I'd add that too, and explain my thoughts on it.
Numbers 5:27-28 (for full context read verses 12-31)
And when he hath made her to drink the water, then it shall come to pass, that, if she be defiled, and have trespassed against her husband, that the water that causeth the curse shall enter into her, and become bitter, and her belly shall swell, and her thigh shall rot: and the woman shall be a curse among her people.
28 And if the woman be not defiled, but clean; then she shall be free, and shall conceive seed.
(So, lots of people think this means God is totally cool with abortions. But you have to remember, this was ALL before Jesus was crucified. Only after He died could He forgive sins with His blood. But before that, they had to give sacrifices and offerings constantly. The water wasn't what would've killed the child, it was the curse and an oath. (Read full chapter for more context))
Finding these verses helped me stand stronger in my belief as to why I don't support abortions, and if you are a fellow Christian who was wondering the same thing I was, I hope these help :)
(I do understand some circumstances are different than others and that some pregnancies have complications and that in order to save the mother's life the baby must be aborted)
God bless you.
She's the strongest woman I know. She can bend an argument between two people with a couple words and make you forget why you needed to argue. She flits and floats as if she's the lightest person, but I know she's carrying the heaviest weight out of all of us. She fights her hardest battles on her knees. She is a prayer warrior. A beautiful daughter of God.
This woman is my mother.
Happy Mother's Day, Mom, and to all the other mothers out there)
(Sorry this post is a day late)
Fight scenes are hard to write. (At least, for me they are.)
I'm talking punches flying, blood spilt, bones broken, typa fight scenes.
Well, this is awkward...
A pastor walks into a saloon.
His teenage boy turns to him with an ashen face. "Dad, I can explain."
The Prophet for our Day
Malachi 4:5 kjv
Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD:
(This promise is fulfilled! God sent the spirit of Elijah to a Kentucky man named William Branham.)
My Food-ly Opinion
Steak. Beautiful,thick, medium-rare, beef steak. Slathered and cooked in garlic and butter. Seared and steaming like someone's breath in Winter air.
I cannot live without my steak.
Mushrooms. More like fungi. Ugh. The texture is all wrong, and the flavors bring bile up my throat. If you want a death wish, put a plate full of steaming mushrooms in my face, and your wish will come true.
