A fun outing

Today the boy and I went on a outing. We were invited to a birthday party at a place in Western NC where the kids have all the fun. Fun Depot is where we went to. A very dear friend had invited us to her little boys birthday party.  Since my son and her kids are home-schooled it was no problem to get things done early enough to be able to go out and enjoy the rest of our day. That is one of the perks of home-schooling. Being able to have time for fun. Here are a few pictures from our day. 

We also went to Mr. K's Bookstore. We love bookstores. Especially if they sell used books. We bought a Irish cookbook and a book for 2nd grade (which he will be in next year). Used books are our favorite kind. 

After that we went next door to A.C.Moore Craft Store.  When you're a home-schooler all sorts of different things amuse you. We looked at different crafts, but ended up buying a dinosaur collector toy. A Schleich Toy the Kaprosuchus, which looks like a supped up crocodile on longer legs…

What the Bible says::Issue 9

Today as I was studying I came across some interesting facts from the bible. It is so good to get down an to actually study His word and learn new things. How will we ever know if we don't get in it.  I have been told since a early age to always hide His words in my heart so that if ever there comes a time that my Bible is taken away from me that I will have preserved the words in my heart. Every bible believer should take that stand and do just that. Learn and hide the words. 

So on to my findings.
Did you know there are two things we should not be ashamed of?
1. Christ Why? Mark 8:38 says Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels. 
Luke 9:26 For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory, and in his Father's, and of the holy angels.

What the Bible says:::Issue 8

Isn't it funny how things can be misquoted or misunderstood. I mean someone can say one thing and then it gets turned into something totally different. It's like that child's game of Whisper. You know what i'm talking about. When we were kids, we would play this game where one of us would whisper a phrase into another friends ear. Then that friend would whisper the same phrase into another's ear and so on, and so on, until it got back to the original person.  The object of this game was to show how easy it was to spread something but it not be the right tale.  It's all in the telling and the hearing.  
The same can be for bible verses. I have written before about how some preachers will quote it as they heard it, instead of  searching it out for themselves. Same goes for everyone else also. If we don't search it out for ourselves how can we take it at face value.
You may be asking "Where is she going with this?"  Well I have issues with bible verses…


Today is a new day. I awoke to the phone ringing, and the snow falling on the ground. Its the month of March and with the mild winter we have had, the snow is welcoming. Winter is always such a somber time here in the mountains of Western North Carolina. But this winter has been very unusual for us. Going from days of 30 degrees to days that are 70 almost 80 degrees this year. I love the warmer weather but, we need the snow as well. God always has a plan. He could have given us the dark and gloomy winter of years past, but He chose to let us see a glimpse of beauty this year.  
God always sends us what we need when we need it. He never fails to supply our needs. He says in Philippians 4:19 that its according to his riches in glory are we supplied.  He never said that He would give us our wants. But He did say in Psalms 37:5 that if we commit to him, trust in him, that he would bring it to pass.  
Spring is coming. I love the smell of fresh tilled ground, the coolness of the earth runnin…
