Well, Wayne and I joined facebook and have found lots of people there...friends we've lost touch with in years gone by. I also added our vacation pictures there if anyone is interested.
Post if you want here or go look Wayne or me up on facebook....hope to see you there. :)
Wayne and I are in Gatlinburg this week for a vacation--just the two of us. My daughter-in-law's
parents were going to join us but were not able to. Anyway, we are having soo much fun. Yesterday we went hiking, then had lunch at KFC (ha!). Then we went to a visiter center, watched a movie, toured their museum, and visited their shop. Then on to Cade's Cove, then horseback riding. Last night we relaxed and channel surfed. Today we plan to shop at one of my favorite places here--I forgot the name of it but it's Dolly's Quilts or something like that in Pigeon Forge.
Oh yes, Monday, we actually looked at land at The Homestead. 6.1 acres with a beautiful panoramic view for 165,000. Nope, we didn't get it!! It sure was nice dreaming for a few minutes though... :) I feel at home here. Maybe that's because I'm from Tennessee and I feel a part of my heritage, plus I absolutely love the mountains, country decor and log cabins...did I mention the nice people?
Anyway, we've taken pictures and I'll post when I can.
Love to all!
I was reading an article in a magazine today while eating a honey roasted chicken sandwich at KFC in Lawton, OK. Some religious group had the article. In it was the sinner's prayer. It talked about becoming a new creature and being born again...lately I get so frustrated with people on stuff like this...I just want to say:
(1) where do you read about God and Christ? answer: the Bible; (2) where do you read of Christ's love and what he did for us? answer: the Bible;
3)Where do you read about how we need Christ and need to be born again? answer: the Bible;
4) Where do you read that you must be born again? answer: the Bible;Where do you read of the sinner's prayer allowing you to be born again? huh? Do I hear silence? Absolutely, because the Bible says to be born again you must be buried with Christ in baptism to come in contact with his blood--not say a prayer.
As Christ shed His blood on the cross, we die with him in the watery grave of baptism. He was resurrected on the 3rd day; When we resurrect out of the water (though we don't stay under for 3 days--ha) we are a new creature, born again...Why can't people understand this simple Bible teaching? Why is this teaching so hard for people to accept?
What do you think or do you disagree?
Napthalie (lady from church) and I drove to Charlotte and saw the American Idol Tour. It was great. We were far away, but we enjoyed it.
Still love working from home. I've traveled a lot this year and am getting ready to go to Oklahoma for 3 weeks.
Hope everyone has had a great summer. Fall will soon be here...:)
Love to all!!
