“When men feed on the word, it is turned into a principle of life, spiritual strength, and growth within; which a taste of it only will not give. As food, when it is digested, turns into flesh and blood and spirits, so doth the word, and Christ therein, unto the souls of men spiritually. Hence Christ becometh “our life,” and “liveth in us,” as the efficient cause of our spiritual life, Gal. 2:20; Col. 3:3; and we grow and increase by the word, 1 Pet. 2:2. A mere taste, though it may yield present refreshment, yet it communicates no abiding strength. Hence multitudes relish the word when it is preached, but never attain life, or strength, or growth by it.” (John Owen, The Works of John Owen vol. 7, 31)

Alabama 2011 - Sliding

A Slide in South Pittsburg

While in Alabama this last Christmas vacation we brought the kids to a local park in South Pittsburg, AL. It's one of our favorite parks to go to. Usually we let the kids run around and the adults just move from bench to bench as we watch the kids have fun. This time we joined in the fun at this large metal slide. Watch and learn. wink
