  1. Has Online Baptist become Reformed?

    It's an ad, Mountain. As was mentioned, ad block plus can keep those from showing up. That's what I use.
  2. Please pray for the Cseh family

    Great news from Atilla: Today, we went for my one week exam after heart surgery. I took the men with me on the trip to the city, and we went early. We took about a 30 to 45 minute walk to the lake. Before surgery, I could barely walk 5 minutes without having to stop and catch my breath. I figured we were right near the hospital, and the goal was to stress my heart for the exam. If I was going to break what they repaired, this was the time. The great news was no irregular heart beats, a 108/70 bloodpressure and two happy sons that did share their happiness about their father getting closer to normal. I am very optimistic, as this was all without any medications since surgery. We serve a great God, and it was a fun day of sharing a place I love with my family. After back surgery, we hope to make more memories.
  3. Whats for Supper...

    Tonight we had hamburgers and potato salad.
  4. Why are Christians voting for Donald Trump?

    Her endorsement was a big disappointment (and let's remember that the majority of Eagle Forum leaders endorsed Cruz). Not just because I like Cruz. But because she has always been a staunch defender of liberty.And I have to wonder now, with Drumpf showing some of his true colors, if she's regretting it. I think others are. Knowing she endorsed him does not clarify to me how any Christian can support a man who has bragged about being a whoremonger, has been unfaithful to two of his wives, is pro-abortion (no matter what he says now), etc. No, I don't put any candidate I vote for on a pedestal. But I won't vote for someone who has the morals of an alleycat. Even if he were a constitutionalist (which Drumpf is not).
  5. She Said Yes!

    Well, not likely as far as restaurants go. LOL We are over on the peninsula. I haven't lived on the Seattle side since I was 12. Needless to say, many restaurants have come and gone since then! I'll talk to my hubs and get back with you.
  6. She Said Yes!

    Would you want to meet up while on your honeymoon or wait for a later time?
  7. She Said Yes!

    I am SO happy for you, 2b! What great news! If the two of you are ever up this way (northern Olympic Peninsula), let me know and the four of us can get together - we'll take you out for supper. Just congrats to you and felicitations to her!
  8. Why are Christians voting for Donald Trump?

    We'll see. The delegates do the voting. And more and more of them are aligning with Cruz. (and, actually, it isn't the media's fault that folks don't know how election results come about...it's the fault of each individual who doesn't take the time to find out how it happens)

    Update from Attila just a few minutes ago: Since the surgery on Tuesday, I have not felt any irregular heart beats. Even last night, where I did not get to sleep until 4am, I had no issues with my heart.Now, the focus is to wait on the stress test, while also scheduling the back surgery (they will burn nerves where two discs were torn from a fall). We are close to getting through this trial, and we have had great family devotions this week.I verified with all providers, and our total bill for this remote holiday vacation is currently $350,000+. Please pray as I work with the providers to fill out their paperwork, as they will also cover anywhere from 5% to 100% of what we owe personally. Currently, that sits close to $24,000+.We also need prayer for Short Term Disability to be approved. We have not had income since November, and it has been a journey getting this approved. This will be back dated, and it would be a huge relief for us to have available, given what I am asking people to pray for next.Another prayer is for our home. Our landlord called to say that we had roof damage - recently they had hail back home that was the size of softballs. Our lease runs out at the end of June, and the landlord had planned to demolish the home to rebuild on the land where our house currently sits. He offered to waive April rent and return 100% of our security deposit if we move out now. We are in prayer, as the timing to make decisions and get things done is quite awkward for us - especially being so far from home. There is no way for us to even get home currently, given my medical condition. We just ask for much prayer as we make decisions.We are excited for what God has in our lives, and we look forward to the next chapter in this recovery.
  10. Why are Christians voting for Donald Trump?

    Just a little FYI in reference to the CO decision: Hawaii's delegates are done the SAME way. Drumpf won in Hawaii. Where were the accusations of fraud then? Not there. Because Drumpf only accuses when he loses. That's what narcissists do. http://dcgazette.com/2016/hypocrite-trumps-hawaii-win/
  11. Please pray for the Cseh family

    Here's the latest update on Atilla. Please continue to pray for them - and thanks so much for all of your prayer! The third surgery for Attila's heart was completed. The surgeon found the same issue as the first surgeon, where the location of Attila's issue was on the coronary artery. The difference in this surgery is that the surgeon did not stop with "I can't do anything". He told us that the heart electrical waves go downward in the heart. So, what he did was kill the electrical current in 10 spots, directly under the bad spot. This way, the erratic current will not work.Previously, Attila had 20% of his heart rates were erratic. After the surgery, they were at 1%. During the surgery, they partially woke up Attila to see the impact of the work. Attila told us all about it on the day of the surgery, how he remembered being awake and talking to the doctors and nurses, but now he cannot remember anything.Now, we have one week of rest and 2-3 weeks before they do a stress test to check the success of the surgery.It "feels" like we are near the end of this adventure, and we thank God for bringing Attila through this time.
  12. Why are Christians voting for Donald Trump?

    I believe Ted will win a brokered convention. He's planned for all contingencies, and is winning delegates who will vote for him in the second ballot. Best case would be to win the 1237 in the primaries, but I agree - that isn't going to happen with either of them. I don't believe Trump will win the first ballot, since he won't have the 1237. And I know he won't win the second. I know the GOP doesn't like either of them - Trump because they know Hillary or Bernie will take him, Cruz because he exposes their lack of adherence to the Constitution. They have floated the idea of another candidate, but I think they see that flaming out.
  13. Why are Christians voting for Donald Trump?

    LOL. Trump's statement came AFTER Cruz and Paul. Yes - we need to get the muslims out of there. But Trump isn't going to do it. He's still buddies with his muslim business partners...
  14. Why hide if you have the truth?

    And guess who was banned yet again.
  15. Why are Christians voting for Donald Trump?

    I'm sorry, Ronda, but there was no subversion of the will of the people.That is a falsehood put out by Trump and his supporters after Trump lost the delegates. As to angry Coloradans...that Larry guy has already been proven to be a liar. I don't know of anyone else who's honestlyclaimed they were shafted. I do know a number of people who actually live in CO, though, who have let people know that there was nothing untoward about what happened. Here is Ari Armstrong with what actually happened: http://ariarmstrong.com/2016/04/setting-the-record-straight-about-colorados-republican-caucus/ "That said, a lot of people seem to have some pretty wild misundertandings about what happened with the straw poll. So I’ll do my best to summarize what happened. In previous years, Colorado Republicans held a non-binding straw poll at the precinct caucuses. This had nothing to do with the selection of delegates to the national Republican convention, but it expressed the preference of those Republicans who attended their caucuses. But, for this year, the national party (for reasons unknown to me) said that we could not have a non-binding poll; if we had a poll it had to be binding. So the state party decided not to have a poll at all. People are welcome to read the explanation for all this bySteve House, the state chair of the GOP (who, incidentally, won his position as an “outsider” who unseated the prior “establishment” chair). For what it’s worth, I think House’s reasons for dropping the poll are pretty good ones. Anyway, without the non-binding poll—which didn’t actually select any delegates—Colorado Republicans selected delegates to the national convention the same way they have before, through the caucus system. Incidentally, according toWikipedia, Colorado’s caucus system was first instituted in 1912 “as a way to limit the power of party bosses and to attract more grassroots involvement,” then replaced by a primary in 1992, then restored in 2002 through 2004. Unsurprisingly,John Frank’s articlesabout all this for theDenver Postare sensationalistic, designed more to inflame people and to draw eyes to the paper’s web site than to enlighten readers with the relevant facts put in context. (I think it’s a little humorous how many of Trump’s supporters totally mistrust the media—except when it spins things their way.) A completely fair headline of what happened this year would have been, “Colorado Republicans Select Presidential Delegates the Same Way They Did Last Time.” But the reality of the situation is so much more boring than the trumped up version of it." The only thing cancelled was a non-binding straw poll because the federal GOP was trying to force the state to change it to a binding one. Straw polls are supposed to simply be an indicator of how folks MIGHT vote. CO did the right thing - the constitutional thing - in not allowing the national party to dictate how their votes were going to be decided. A caucus was held (rather than a primary). People voted. Actually 65,000 of 'em. That's not subversion. We need to take care not to get caught up in the hysteria that the media and the progressives are trying to trap us in. CO is just one example of it happening.
