Our precious, Joanna Praise!

Daddy and Mommy are pretty busy and have not have a lot of time for blogging pictures of Joanna, and for that we are sorry, because she is SO cute. The good news is that Joanna has aunts that have the time. So with the teamwork of Abi's sister Anna, who took the pictures, and my sister Rachel, who blogged them, you can go to...

To see more pictures of (according to dads unbiased opinion) one of God's most beautiful creations!!!

Truth vs. Lie

Here is a project and/or somthing to think about!

First, think of someone you know that is a joyful, content, and peaceful person.

Lets think this through!

If evolution is true and that's how we all got here, by chance, what would be the purpose in life? With evolution we all got here by chance, and there is no accountibility for our actions after we die. Therefore, our purpose in life would be self gratification, and pleasure! In other words me first, and that will bring me joyfulness, contentment and peace.

On the other hand if the Bible is true, and we were created for a purpose. According to the Bible, what is that purpose? First of all, we were made to have a relationship with God.

(Jn. 10:14) We were also made to serve. (Matt. 20:26-28) We could go on and on, but notice the trend, God first, others second and me last! This will bring true joyfulness, contentment and peace.

Look at the contrast!

Me first, others last.


Me last, God and others first.

The person that came to mind as somone who was a joyful, content, peaceful person, are they the me first type, or God and others first type person?? Of all the people I know it's those that are God and others first that are consistently joyful, content, and peaceful people. On the contrary those that have the, "me first" additude are some of the most miserable people!

God's word is true in every part of life! It's easy to say, "I believe it." But what are my actions? Am I living the lie of evolution by putting me first? How do I put me first? Unforgivness, disobediance, having bad attitudes, not willing to serve, irresponsibility, and the list goes on and on.

Yet, in thinking this through I had to ask myself, do I deceive myself by "believing" the truth and living a lie?
