Speaking Agape

Hello All, Grace and Peace be to you from our LORD and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST.

I love this story, and wanted to repost it for new readers!

PRAISE GOD FOR HIS WORD! Enjoy the story, and GOD bless you!

In the early 60s, Brother Andrew, a man from Holland, smuggled a load of Bibles in his VW across the Romanian border and past communist guards. He checked into a hotel and began praying that God would lead him to the right Christian groups - the ones who could best use his copies of the Scriptures.

That weekend Andrew walked up to the hotel clerk and asked where he might find a church. The clerk looked at him a little strangely and answered, "We don't have many of those you know. Besides you couldn't understand the language." "Didn't you know?" Andrew replied, "Christians speak a kind of universal language." "Oh, what's that?", asked the clerk. "It's called Agape." The clerk had never heard of it, but Andrew assured him. "It's the most beautiful language in the world."

Andrew was able to locate several church groups in the area and managed to arrange a meeting with the president and secretary of a certain denomination. Unfortunately, although both Andrew and these men knew several European languages, they found they had none in common. So there they sat staring at each other across the room.

Andrew had traveled thousands of dangerous miles with his precious cargo but there seemed no way of telling whether these men were genuine Christian brothers or government informants.

Finally he spotted a Romanian Bible on a desk in the office. Andrew reached into his pocket and pulled out a Dutch Bible. He turned to 1 Corinthians 16:20 and held the Bible out, pointing to the name of the book, which they could recognize. Instantly their faces lit up.

They quickly found the same chapter and verse in their Romanian Bibles and read: "All the brothers here send you greetings. Greet one another with a holy kiss."

The men beamed back at Andrew. Then one of them looked throughout his Bible and found Proverbs 25:25. Andrew found the verse and read: "Like cold water to a weary soul is good news from a distant land." These men spent half an hour conversing and sharing - just through the words of Scripture. They were so happy in this fellowship that crossed all cultural boundaries that they laughed until tears came to their eyes. Andrew knew he had found his brothers. When he showed them his load of Bibles, the Romanians were overwhelmed and embraced him again and again.

That evening at the hotel, the clerk approached Andrew and remarked, "Say, I looked up 'agape' in the dictionary. There's no language by that name. That's just a Greek word for love." Andrew replied, "That's it. I was speaking in it all afternoon."

I am a Christian, and I believe in life! I believe that abortion is wrong no matter what! GOD is the creator of life, not death! I believe a baby is a baby from conception...period! And, I believe that in the end, GOD will reveal to all pro abortionists exactly what it really is...MURDER!

There will be no way to run, no way to argue, because the truth will be right there, and they will one day see the truth of the extreme massacre of our children.

Do I hate them for killing babies? No!!! On the contrary, I love every human being! GOD HIMSELF does not hate anyone, but HE does hate sin, and killing the innocent, is a sin. JESUS came to die on the CROSS so we could be forgiven of all of our sin...including abortion. If you stumbled across my site, and have had an abortion, and are reading this, I want you to know, JESUS will forgive you. Please ask HIM, and be saved from your sin.

I am posting two videos of a woman who is a product of a botched abortion. Her story is real! My husband and I saw her in person about 8 years ago in Wichita, Kansas. It might long videos, but it is worth it to watch. GOD bless you all!

Hello All, Grace and Peace be unto you from our LORD and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST.

Tim Hawkins is at it again in his latest video, called Someone Broke Wind. A spoof from an old Kansas song, Dust In The Wind! HA HAHA HAHAHA HAHAHAHA!! It is so funny! He is a hoot! GOD bless you all!

Homeschooling Brandon

Hello All, Grace and Peace be unto you from our LORD and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST.

I have been homeschooling my daughter for three years using the A BEKA curriculum. A BEKA is a Christian school based in Pensacola, Fl. I really love it! They have the daily agenda, all the books, tests and quizzes, and everything a person will need for the entire school year.

My daughter is in the 9th grade now, and she is doing an awesome job! She went from D's and F's in the public school, to A's, B's and C's homeschooling. She really loves it!

My son (8 years old and in the 3rd grade) is joining us this year for the first time. He really wanted to be home-schooled, and has begged me for two years, but I could not until this year. Brandon, after begging me, has decided he wants to go back to public school(WHAT????)... Ummm...because mom keeps him on task ALL day...LOL! In the public school there is not a whole lot of one-on-one time with the kids, but at home, it is a different story. I do not think he likes me right there all day, but as he gets used to this curriculum, I will not have to be right there all the time. I know it will get better for him. It did with my daughter.

He has Bible class first, then Arithmetic, Language, Spelling, Penmanship, Reading and Science. Then we have Art every week too! There is sooooo much to this curriculum, so I hope he will come to like it. He is doing so well with it, except to voice that it is too fast paced.

I have a schedule and we must stick to it! I even put in Recess for him twice a day. We have a park outside our back door and an activity center with a basketball court to take them for some Gym time.

Well, I think it is going really well so far. I have a video of Brandon answering some questions. He did VERY well! It put a smile on mommy's face.

I know as the year progresses, he will progress forward in his academics, and make mom and dad very happy!

May GOD give every home-schooling parent the strength to get through each day with the kids. It is not always going to be fun, or easy, but in the end it will be worth it.

GOD bless you all!

Here is Brandon...

A City On Our Knees

Hello All, Grace and Peace be to you from our LORD and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST.

Hello All, Grace and Peace be unto you from our LORD and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST.

I know in the last few weeks there has been much tension in the news regarding the Muslims. I started to get fired up too, but GOD quickly reminded me that it is about the LOVE of JESUS, not the storm around us. We are always going to have storms in life, but GOD has called us to love one another, bear with one another. Remember... LOVE covers a multitude of sins.

Check out this blog, Off The Sanctuary Wall, for the article, Random Rant- Would JESUS Burn the Koran? I believe her heart is in line with the WORD of GOD! Thank you Sharkbytes for a loving reminder to align our hearts with the very heart of GOD.

The Last Blood

Hello All, Grace and Peace be unto you from our LORD and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST.

This a wonderful song!!! I love it!!!


The Last Blood lyrics
Verse 1:
When man sinned in the garden
That sin Jehovah could not condone
The blood shed of animals
Could not forever sin atone

Verse 2:
But the Son had compassion
He said Father I'll be your Lamb
So once again blood was shed
As the soldiers nailed His hands

Verse 3:
It's been three days since Heaven
Watched their Prince of Glory die
His followers are in mourning
For in the tomb their Savoiur lies

Verse 4:
But at the grave something is happening
As death screams I've lost my hold
Angels rise in anticipation
For the Son is coming home

And there He comes
And He's got the blood
That He shed on Calvary
And the Father says
Well done my Son
This is the last blood I'll ever need
(Repeat Chorus)

Above All

Hello All, Grace and Peace be unto you from our LORD and SAVIOR, JESUS CHRIST.

Family, let's praise JESUS!!! Lift those hands high and just love on GOD, HE loves us sooo much!!! Thank you JESUS for your sacrifice! Like a rose trampled on the ground YOU took the fall and thought of me above all. (As tears stream from my eyes, I just love HIM.)

LORD, Give Me YOUR Eyes

Hello All, Grace and Peace be unto you from our LORD and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST.

I am in Awe at how GOD loves people no matter what, and I want to imitate that love, but it is hard because...well...I am not GOD, so I pray this prayer...

LORD, please help me to see people the way YOU see people, and help me love people the way YOU love people. Help me see YOUR potential in them instead of what satan has done to them and through them. I just want to love! In JESUS name, Amen!

When I heard this song, it reminded me of my prayer! I love it! It is my hearts cry in a song to GOD. Thank you GOD for laying this on Brandon Heath's heart to write. I sing this song back to YOU!

My hope is that we would all become imitators of GOD's love! GOD bless you!

Here is the song by Brandon Heath- Give Me Your Eyes

Religious "political correctness" consist of trying to serve GOD in such a way as not to offend the devil.

Go Fish - Bible Book Bop


Hello All, Grace and Peace be to you from our LORD and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST.

I was homeless, and HE was the KING. I was living in sin, HE died because of it... but now lives again. I was dirty, HE cleaned me up. I had nothing, HE gave me everything. I had no teacher, HE was eager to teach me. At times I feel unteachable, but HE continues to teach me. I now know love, because I am loved by the ONE who is LOVE. I had no one, and HE adopted me and took me in. I WAS HOMELESS, BUT NOW I HAVE A MANSION. HE IS THE KING, AND I AM A DAUGHTER OF THE KING! THANK YOU JESUS!
