  1. Panicking serves no one - not yourself, not the people who are suffering, and not the planet. Allow yourself to trust that there is a larger purpose and that it may not be necessary for you to know that purpose at this time. Allow yourself to have faith that ultimately, all will be well.

  2. Not long ago I was preaching at a local church and the Sunday school class I sat in on (ages 18-30 or so) was discussing spiritual discernment and maturity. The definition I gave to them for spiritual maturity was as follows: Spiritual maturity should be the ever increasing state of a believer's spiritual life when he ceases to constantly attempt to justify what he wants to do by pointing to the things that aren't clearly spelled out in God's word, and he begins to seek only to glorify God through simple obedience to the commands that are clearly spelled out in His word. Once the maturing

      Congratulations! Don't know if you'll remember me; I used to frequent here about three years ago. I came back to check on someone and found a friend of mine, Ted Snyder on here. He's a good man. Thought I'd look around some and found you again. We just had a daughter too, on April 8, 2011. Sarah Grace came in @ 10:23 AM. 20" long and 7 lbs. 6 oz. She is a true blessing. Congratulations again and God Bless.

  4. First day of Grand Jury duty is history... just 11 more to go: once per month for the rest of the year.

      Never been called for Grand Jury duty but always thought it would be interesting.

  5. Really thankful for our family traditions right now! Our Christmas Eve tradition is to have a pizza any way we want, which happens ONLY at Christmas. This year it was simple, but really good... Little Caesar's large with extra cheese and extra bacon.

      We had pizza at my daughters tonight. Four different kinds to please everyone.

  6. Well... it will be three statuses in one day. I got an early birthday gift from Greenville County when I checked the mail tonight. I got JURY DUTY!! Wahoo! :-)

      Yep, proof you're all grown up now! ;-)

  7. Last day of my 20's! Had a successful time at the gun show and a good time doing some Christmas shopping after that. Now, I'm being tempted by the chicken enchiladas Heather is preparing for lunch tomorrow. It smells so good in the house now!

  8. I had a great Thanksgiving Day with my family and realized even more of the good things I have to be thankful for.

      Wonderful. Good to hear from you. Tell your wife I said hello!

  9. I just voted and the poll worker told me that our precinct had gone over 50% today. That's good news for a mid-term!

  10. For all who are interested, when our daughter is born early next year, we will be naming her Ava Gayle Speer.

  12. Hi, all! For Mitch: The Bible does indeed give at least one differentiation between men and women's attire: men are often told to have thier "loins gird" in all sorts of various daily activities. Women in the Bible are never commanded to do so. The one passage where this apparently occurs is in Proverbs 31. However, since it is also apparent that this chapter has more to do with church typology than the supposed "Proverbs 31 Woman," it is more figurative and pertains to the church, the Bride of Christ. So there is your consistent difference between men and women's attire according to
  13. For all who have yet to hear, Heather is due in February with our second child! She is about 11 weeks along right now and is getting better after about 3 weeks of nausea. :-)

      How wonderful!! Congratulations!! "Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. (Psalms 127:3).

      Congratulations!! Thanks for letting us know.

      That is SO wonderful! Congratulations!!

  14. I will speak from personal experience to give a demonstration of how I was convicted by this verse more than ten years ago. When I was around 14 or 15 I got into the habit of adding the words "just kidding" to the end of almost every statement I made because hardly anything I said was ever said in seriousness. I would say things that were mostly unkind jokes that were pretty benign, but it often would go to far into sarcasm (which I also struggled with for a while). I finally heard a preacher mention this passage in a sermon and, while I cannot remember his application, I can tell you tha
