No Greater Love

"No Greater love has man, than to lay down his life for his friends." John 15:13

This was ringing in my head as I was sitting at the Charlotte Web movie last night. Donnie and I took the kids to a Drive- in Theatre. I haven't been to one of these since a little girl. What fun we all had. This was one of our first Hannukah gifts to the family. A side note: Our family incorporates Hannukah with Christmas--I will post later explaining.

Driving down to the theatre, I knew we were going to see this classic story on the big screen. I kept saying to myself, I know the story. The little girl loves the pig and then there is the wise spider. So as I was watching this story come to life on screen I watched how unselfishCharlotte the spider truly was. Then there was the rat Templeton, who I think can represent the majority of all of us. Selfish, always thinking for himself. True love was shown by Charlotte. This tiny little spider, with a huge heart. She saw the beautiful things about the pig Wilbur. She continually spoke words of love to this unloved creature. She loved her friend Wilbur. She did everything she could so he wouldn't have to die. In the end, she died and the pig lived a long life.

How does this relate to scripture and Jesus Himself? The Lord says in the bible we are his friends. Jesus did lay down His life for all of us, so we could have eternal life.

Who would have thought a little story about a pig could speak of the Love of God.

Thanksgiving at home: First time in 18 years

Let's just say that we didn't plan to spend Thanksgiving at home this year. I think the last time we celebrated in our own home was back when Moriah was a baby.  Yeah...that's about 18 years ago or so.  Let me tell you....W e absolutely loved it! Here's a little run down on how our plans were miscommunicated. You see...Donnie and I didn't communicate our Thanksgiving plans very well this year.  He had forgotten that we had spent Thanksgiving with his side of the family last year so that meant it was time to drive up to Jacksonville and spend time with my side of the family.  With not much talk of our T hanksgiving plans, I hear from the kids that he t old brother or dad not sure who that we would be heading down to see them Thanksgiving.    This conversation happened just a few weeks before Thanksgiving.  Kids: Hey where are we going for Thanksgiving this year? Me: Ummm....I think it's Jax.   One of the kids:  I thi

Part 2 of my last post/A Reply to a Comment

I decided to write a second part to my last post in response to some comments that were left. I understand the heart of the woman who wrote the response and I am in no way being critical of her comment. I just want to share my heart in a more deeper way. Here it goes: By far am I thinking and promoting people to walk in gray areas or sin. I am just simply sharing that we are all on this journey of walking with the Lord and sometimes we as Christian women can put yokes of bondage out of Law and not allow the Lord to change us by His Spirit. I am wanting to share how the Grace of God has taught me that by His Spirit I can be changed, not by doctrines or teachings of religion. Yes, the bible clearly says that women should wear modest apparel. Does this mean skirts? Yes, it says that having long hair is a covering for the woman? But will Jesus still love me if I do cut my hair? And how long is long enough? Some women cut their hair to help a good cause such as wigs for cancer
