  1. Holiness. "Be ye holy; for I am holy." Holiness would include standards, spiritual discernment, Bible reading, etc., etc. Much of the church today seems to be concerned with how close to the world it can get rather than how close to God it can get.
  2. Kids aren't automatons. And each one is different in temperament and personality. Know your children well. And win their hearts. As you train them - which includes both positive reinforcement as well as negative reinforcement - win their hearts. That will bring compliance for the RIGHT reason - great love for their father - versus the wrong reason - trembling in fear of punishment by their father. God tells fathers not to provoke their children to anger - because provoking to anger breeds rebellion.
  3. (he's chomping at the bit to win...)
  4. I'm sorry, MC. Praying for you.
  5. Welcome aboard, Jake.
  6. And they think that throwing a gospel song or two out there makes them special Christians. Sadly, many people fall for that and believe that these singers are great, godly people.
  7. All I have to do is go to a grocery store or a restaurant and I know rock-n-roll is still very much alive. Rap music actually can be said to be a derivative of rock, since it was pulled from funk and disco (both of them being offshoots). As Uke said, country is pretty much like rock music now, too. When I was younger, preachers preached against country as actually more dangerous because it was supposed to be so family-oriented. I never could figure out how a genre that sang about the kind of stuff many country songs did could be considered family-oriented, though.
  8. The latest news: "They are planning Attila;s surgery for 2-3 weeks from now. Since this will require a more invasive procedure, they will map it out and then perform the surgery. We do have concerns from between then and now, and we are praying that God provides for the rough moments and calms Attila's heart until the surgery date." Their finances are in jeopardy as well. Attila had just gotten going on a furniture refinishing business which was seeing some good results. Now that's come to a standstill. That, and the added expense of once again traveling to the hospital, parking, etc., is putting an extra strain on Kimberly. I know we all face times of ill health and financial crisis, but this family is really going through it. Please pray for the financial aspect of it as well as the physical and spiritual. The children have the opportunity to see God work in ways many children don't.
  9. This wasn't during devotions, but rather this past Sunday during church. My hubs preached on "Our First Mother" (of course, Eve). He talked about Adam naming the animals and yet God seeing him without a help meet for him was not good...and it hit me: Adam was created perfect. And yet he was lonely.
  10. It's worth another read as an adult. Life experience adds to it.
  11. JON IS AWAKE!!! AMEN and PRAISE the LORD!  I posted the most recent video in "A friend's son" prayer request. THANK YOU for praying. Please continue.

  12. HE HAS EMERGED!!! HE IS CONSCIOUS, in 2/3 the time alloted! Praise God! Thank you for your prayer. Please, now, continue to pray for his recovery, which could take years.
  13. Parying, WellWithMySoul.
  14. Have you read The Scarlet Letter? I am reading it again with my niece for school. I love the way he has written it, in such detail, but her education up until 9th grade was in a public school. She has neither the comprehension nor the vocabulary to read it without constant explanation. So it is taking more time than I really wanted to take for it. While he uses a lot of verbiage and could be much more succinct, I think it's been good for her to have to try and work through it. It's actually a good lesson on hypocrisy. But I agree - I'm not too impressed with his short stories. Although I have an OLD copy of it that I keep more for the value of the book than the contents. =D
  15. How wonderful! Many congratulations!
