Be ware of Ben Sutton firstname.lastname@example.org Same type of e-mail. Willing to pay for a 500 pound wood stove site unseen. The first thing I ask him was how he was going to pick it up? Then I felt weird about it. No one needs a wood stove that bad. So I searched and ended up here.. Thanks everyone.

Wow, I feel really stupid now. However we did feel that it was a scam so we gave the guy my husbands companies address. My husband was going to take the check to our dear friend who’s a bank official. But now that I read all of this, which I realize I should have done before, I see that I should have just ignored this guy. This was our first time selling on craigs list and didn’t know anything about it. Does anyone have any advice on what the next step should be? Thanks so much. Julie

Rob, the site looks great! That’s a cool pic. It really personalizes your site.
Thanks for taking us along on this spiritual trek, or at least letting us have glimpses. Very cool.

It’s nice to talk to adults. 🙂

Well, I agree it’s not sin to have lustfull thoughts, etc. However, to entertain impure thoughts can become sin and can become a stronghold in our thought life. We are supposed to take every thought captive. The thoughts we entertain do affect us, either in a positve or a negative way.

My great-grandma, who I was very close to, was a very conservative Baptist lady. She would say, “I might say s*** or d*** but you’ll never hear me use the Lord’s name in vain. I agree that is where it should stop, out of respect and honor for the name that is above all other names. It pains me when Christians use His name as a profanity. To me, it seems, they of all people, should know better.
Rob, I bet Nicholas’ parents are so glad you are his mentor/teacher. I would hope that my children’s teachers would appreciate their quircky little personalities as you do his!!

My kindergartener and one of her little classmates were trying to figure out what the “f” word was. She said they decided it must be “fire”!!! I guess we’re taught never to yell “fire”!! 😉
I agree with Patty, God’s shoulders are broad enough to handle anything we throw His way!!!!
I’ve rebelled from my childhood teachings on swearing. I am not much of a swearer! At least, not compared to my dad. He was/is very foul mouthed. Every other word I’m sure!!
He used to refer to most women, including my mom, as b*****s. I remember wondering when I was little, if he thought I was one too. It still wounds me to hear that word used. James never says it out of love for me. Any negative word, cuss word or not, has the powere to wound our spirits deeply.
I admit, it’s really fun at times when I’m with a close friend or James to cuss- they get such a kick out of it! 😆

If the church does what she is supposed to do the gates of hell will not prevail.
I was just looking over some of my notes and saw this. Thought I’d add it here.
Hope you are doing ok.

Rob, I’ve heard our pastor teach a couple of times, something very interesting. In Matthew 16:18 Jesus talks about the church and how the gates of Hades will not overcome it. Taken in context, in this chapter Jesus is talking about the religious and polital rulers. Pharisees and Sadducees. It was customary for the political “stuff” to be held at the gates of a town. Therefore, Jesus is talking about the political parties/structure/rulers, if you will, not overcoming the church. The church has every right and responsibility to stand up to our political authority. I liked Amber’s term moral excellence.
I thought that totally changed the feel of that scripture. Jesus was really speaking out against them, calling them the gates of Hell!

This post has been jaw dropping.

I think God is trying to teach me something. Yesterday, the verse Ephesian 4:32 came to mind and I posted it. Last night at church it was one of the key verses that the pastor taught on about love. Kind, compassionate and forgiving… I guess I better pay attention!!!
» Posted By Julie On April 28, 2005 @ 11:57 pm
Carl, your post made me think of this verse. I had to look it up to find the reference.
Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you. Ephesians 4:32
I guess your compassion for Malcolm is what made me think of it.
» Posted By Julie On April 27, 2005 @ 1:56 pm
I agree with the passion thing, Carl. He is very passionate and as he matures God will be able to use him in big ways.
James’ mom talks about when they were first born again. She was very committed to the Lord, and she adopted some strict convictions. Now they are very balanced, and I respect them a lot. She still has that same commitment and passion. She has just matured. I don’t know anyone as outspoken about God as her. Women are drawn to her, because of her enthusiasm.
Good points, Carl. I enjoyed your thoughts!

This is embarrassing!! I wish Christians would stop trying to be the Holy Spirit! If there is someone in my life who has an active relationship with the Lord and they are inclining their ear to him, then I will listen to what they have to say because they care for me and I trust them. I would be foolish not to consider their words. This guy, though, why in the world should we listen to him? I have a one on one relationship with the Lord. If He wants to tell me somethiing, I can listen for myself.

Yeah, I remember! I was one of the Brewster sisters!!! That was sooo fun!!! I usually ended up with a lead role, which made it even more fun. Gee, I am really tooting my own horn!!

I was heavily involved in drama in high school. I’ve really been missing it a lot lately. Wish I had some kind of outlet. I am too busy with kiddos to try out for community theatre, me thinks.

Very cool!! You did a great job!! Thanks for sharing. 🙂

Rob, how come bloggie says there’s five comments when there’s really six?
I’m curious if it will say seven now or six or just stay at five.

Mary, the scripture ‘His banner over me is love’ has been on my mind all morning. It’s one of my favorites. I believe it’s found in Song of Songs. I’ve also been hearing, in my head, the children’s song ‘His Banner Over Me Is Love”. I wish I could remember all the words. It’s such a basic concept, yet it is so deep and life changing.
Mary, His banner over you is love!!

Rob, great post. I think what you are describing is the Holy Spirit at work in you! Very exciting! I can relate very well to the memes you listed. I, too, have struggled my whole life with feelings of love and acceptance. It’s wonderful when the Holy Spirit makes the truth of God’s love and acceptance become very real and relevant in our lives. He is revealing deep truths about Himself to you. This seems to be a time of healing and growth for you. He is preparing you for great stuff. Remember, His plans are to prosper you and give you a hope and future!
“It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit and they are life.” John 6:63
I found this definition from The Quickened Word.
“All the Lord’s Words, no matter what form we hear them, must be quickened by His Holy Spirit. The Bible says, only what is quickened by His Spirit will give life. Quickened is an obscure Biblical word, but without its power, our relationship with Him is limited to a dead language. The literal Greek meaning of the word quicken is to “make alive, or give vitality.”
“All words are just words until they are quickened and we finally realize they apply to us. Quickening happens when you hear a story, etc. and all of a sudden it connects with your personal life. His quickening power says, “Listen to this, I’m talking to you!”
Great stuff, Rob! I truly was excited by this post. God is so awesome!!!

I didn’t want to say this cuz I don’t want to seem like a goody goody preachey girl, but it’s too important to leave out. Here goes… God’s love for us is not based on our behavior, our performance, personality, etc. His love is unconditional. It is based soley on the fact that we are His. This is a perfect example of love, that when applied to romantic relationships, will provide couples with “staying power”. I still think it’s romantic, too.

You love your cat because he’s yours. Of all the cats in the world Ebenezer (is that his name?) belongs to you. That makes him special, along with his own little personality. Sometimes I love James, just because he’s mine. I am sure he would agree. I am not always real loveable but he loves me because he chose me. That may sound volitional and sacrificial but I also think it’s romantic. To simply be loved because I’m his.

Hmmmm, I could do a mom-o-meter, but because I am a mom, I am too tired to think of anything clever.

Maybe that is why God made mothers… I cannot accept the second one for my children, which drives me to pray incessantly for them.
Sure, Anjelia is doing the same developmentally that all the other 18 month olds out there are doing but my heart tells me that she is a shining star, one of a kind, little girl. It’s inherent that mom’s know these things.

Rob, I like your new colors here. It looks really good. I am hiding at the computer because James is trying to plumb the new bathroom and I’m hearing a lot of frustrated noises coming from in there. Thought I’d stop and visit your site. Guess I’ll go check on him now!!!

All of the little whiskers grossed me out when James used to empty his. He uses a razor now and I’m glad!

I love cool multi-colored LEDs!
How about smiley face cutouts on the door! 😆 🙂 😉 8)

I don’t often remember my dreams, but if I have a dream that stands out, it is often about a house. They are always James and I’s homes and they always have lots of rooms. In some dreams there have been hidden rooms. One dream was a old house with room after room full of beautiful antique furniture. Another dream was rooms full of waist deep water. All these “extra” rooms are usually downstairs or in a basement. It’s kinda like I “discover” them.
I so badly wish I had my childhood books. I had lots of them. I wonder what ever happened to them…
