“Coming to Jesus Christ is coming on His terms, not our own. The person who comes to Christ comes in humility, meekness, a needy beggar in spirit who hungers and thirsts for God’s righteousness, who cries for mercy, and is willing to be hated, reviled, and persecuted for the sake of his Lord (Matt. 5:3-12). The Lord may not take away comforts, money, or relationships with others, but all of those things-and everything else besides-must be given over to Him, to do with as He pleases. Otherwise He is not Lord, no matter how much allegiance to Him is professed.” John MacArthur

Family,

At Jared’s in Alabama

Yeah, it’s been a while since our trip to Alabama Dec 2008, but what the heck. There’s some photos I haven’t blogged on and so better late than never.

We visited Jared a couple times, he has done some excellent work on making his home warm and comfy. I wish we were able to spend more time there, but the way things worked out we spent much more time hanging out at Moma Lynn’s.

Jared is such a good uncle. Matthew loves to spend time with him and I think Jared might like Matthew a bit too. wink

This fun little toy is sorta like a home version of those rides you see at the supermarkets and malls, except that it’s free, and your kid has to do the work of making it move up and down. It saves your quarters and get’s your kids tired! Brilliant.
