  1. I was having trouble connecting too, both last night and this morning but now it seems to be working. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk HD
  2. Sloppy Joes or homemade burgers sounds quite good, LuAnne!! Do you put ranch dressing mix in your hamburger meat? Unfortunately, I am going to the dentist this afternoon so I'll be drinking my dinner through a straw! ;( Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  6. So sorry about all the bad weather. I hope things get better for you all. Is the rain going to freeze because of your cold weather or are you going to warm up above freezing before the rain? It's raining here but it's well above freezing, thankfully! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk HD
  7. LuAnne!! You poor thing!! Is it going to warm up for you soon? We are expecting 70 this weekend. Yea!!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Wherever do you suppose that fellow got that lime green shirt??? AND WHY WAS HE WEARING IT WITH A PURPLE JACKET??? That hurt my eyes. The big SBC church I used to attend was actually a little like this, it was quite a big media production with big screens placed throughout the sanctuary, an orchestra (!!!), etc. etc. Of course, now they are in the process of building their $100+ million "worship center" so who knows what it will look like when they get done. They still owe something like $60 million on the previous worship center. I do wish that people got as excited about worshipping our Creator as they do about professional athletics. I hear people talking so often about sporting events, their favorite teams and players, but you rarely hear them talk about God. It saddens me.
  9. Praise God from Whom all blessings flow!!! It RAINED this morning!!!!!!!!! We haven't had rain since May, and have been praying for it daily. This is the driest year since records have been kept here, but God sent us RAIN!!!! "Who giveth rain upon the earth, and sendeth waters upon the fields." (JOB 5:10)

      Amen! We had friends up from TX visiting, who headed home today. I'm sure they are praising the Lord as they travel.

  10. I must say that I am surprised and grieved to be called "eccentric" by several members of the forum. I certainly did not expect that from fellow IFBs.
  11. This is an outrage!!!!! Fort Hood, Texas shooting first responders laid off due to budget cuts. http://www.stripes.com/fort-hood-shooting-first-responders-laid-off-due-to-budget-cuts-1.151483 You can bet your bottom dollar that the paper pushers who made this brilliant decision were the ones cowering under their desks when the gunfire started. Heartless heartless heartless.
  12. Well, I must confess I do grimace on my treadmill at times, Sister Annie! And I'm embarrassed to admit I also perspire a bit on there too! That's actually why I prefer to exercise at home, in private, so I can grimace and perspire (and huff and puff -- lots of huffing and puffing I'm afraid ) without anyone seeing me! I would be too embarrassed to do that in public! Apparently it's too much of a spectacle for even the cats to witness because they usually slink into the other room when I get on the treadmill. (Good for you, by the way, for getting in shape with your husband. There was a time when I could eat anything I wanted, but I'd lose five pounds if I skipped lunch. Boy oh boy are THOSE days over!! Now I really have to work for every pound I want to lose!)
  13. Your comment here touched on an issue that I encounter periodically. People will occasionally ask me whether I am Muslim or Mormon or Orthodox Jewish because I wear long skirts, long sleeves, and blouses with necklines above the collarbone. Most recently, I was dining at a restaurant with a small group of ladies from church and we were asked by the waiter whether we were Mormons. When we said no he immediately asked whether we were Orthodox Jews. We replied no again and one of the ladies said we are Christians. He looked genuinely surprised. He actually said, "I wouldn't have guessed that, you are all dressed so modestly and act so quiet and polite." *sigh* I've been asked similar questions in the office where I work. When I first started working at my current job people asked me whether I was a Mormon, a Muslim or an Orthodox Jew because of my modest dress and my eschewing secular entertainment. The last thing they thought was that I might be a Christian. It genuinely saddens me to think that non-Christian belief systems such as Muslims, Mormons and Jews are easily identifiable by their "set apart" lifestyle and modest dress but as Brother John has pointed out, Christians are not usually identified in this way. It does seem to me that Christians sometimes try to blend in as much as possible, not to be too different, too set apart. There is a danger in blurring those lines, not just for ourselves but also for those who make judgments on our faith based on their observation of our conduct. I do not think we should be asking how little we can do to follow Christ, but how much.
  14. Thank you. I plan to print out your article and take it with me to Bible study Wednesday.
