Proverbs 3:5-6

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight.

How will you respond?

As you know I will be going to India in December to minister to the people in the area known as Andhra Pradesh. They recently have had the worst floods in over 100 years. Please view the attached web page for Harvest India to see how they are responding to the needs of the people there, and if you find it in your hearts to send a donation so that they continue to supply emergency food, water and clothing.

A Mom forever

For some reason I thought that when your kids were old enough to move out of the house you would stop worrying about them...boy was I wrong on that one! Once a mom always a worrier I guess! Sleepless nights, tight neck muscles never seem to end! Oh eee vey!

OK Fine!

I'll post something new for you! It has been a very long time, I know. A few things running through my mind...I just turned 60! Yikes! But, I look forward to the new decade..I feel great and am anticipating lots of fun things happening. I'm going to India on as missions trip in December for one. I also think I may have a grandbaby in this decade (no news, just anticipating) and maybe another wedding? Who knows, but life is good and I'm excited!
On a sad note, Skeeter's dog got hit by a car and died last week. We are all very sad about it and only time will heal his broken heart!
I just got back from a wonderful trip to Maine with my buddies. We have been friends for a very long time and we had a wonderful time of celebrating my birthday and making lots of new memories.

Just a few photos of Easter this year. It was such a great day ... so casual yet so nice to just hang with family after a wonderful Celebration of Easter morning. Jeff and Nikki came to decorate Eggs with us on Friday so we got to enjoy them for a bit, but Skeeter had to work all weekend and so I was without my kiddos. Other than that it was the perfect day!

Please consider this!

"'What shall I do, then, with the one you call the king of the Jews?' Pilate asked them" (Mark 15:12 NIV).

Two thousand years ago, in the Middle East, an event occurred that permanently changed the world. Because of that event, history was split. Every time you write a date, you're using the resurrection of Jesus Christ as the focal point.

What does this mean to us today? In one sense, Jesus Christ is still on trial. He's on trial in the heart and mind of every person who has not yet acknowledged Him as the Son of God, the Savior of the world.

Was Jesus a liar, a lunatic, or Lord?

Jesus claimed to be the Savior of the world. In John 12:47, He is recorded as saying: "I didn't come to judge the world. I came to save it." Some people say, "I believe Jesus was a good teacher." But, He couldn't be just a good teacher because a good teacher would not say, "I'm God, and I'm the only way to heaven." A good person would not say that unless it was the truth.

What's your verdict?

- Is Jesus who He says He is? Is He God? Or is He a lunatic or a liar?

- If He is who He says He is, when will you start following what He says to do with your life?

Today, you sit in judgment of Jesus Christ. Just as Pilate asked, "What shall I do then with Jesus who is called the Christ?" you also must decide whether He was who He said He was or not.

Easter is Sunday...Have you thought about what it means?

God's plan is what I call "The Great Exchange."

The Bible says, "God took the sinless Christ and poured into Him our sins. Then, in exchange, He poured God's goodness into us!" (2 Corinthians 5:21 LB).

I don't know how to make it any clearer than to say it like this: You're never going to be good enough to get into heaven because it's perfect and you stopped being perfect a long time ago. It is Christ's goodness in you that makes you acceptable. You're not perfect, but He is. So God says, "We'll do a little switcheroo here. Jesus will take your sins and you get My goodness in your life." That's quite a deal!

A lot of people feel trapped by their past. They say, "If you knew what I've done, you'd know I'd never be acceptable to God." I don't know what you've done, but God does and He still accepts you: "God says He will accept us and acquit us,declare us 'not guilty'if we trust Jesus Christ to take away our sins. And we all can be saved in this same way, by coming to Christ, no matter who we are or what we have been like" (Romans 3:22 LB).

No matter who we are or what we've been like! We can all be saved. He makes us acceptable to God.
