Sorry I haven't posted lately...............

Hello everyone! I am so sorry that I haven't posted anything lately. We have been pretty busy lately as well as battling sickness. :-o To start off with, ( or restart with? or to restart off with? or to start back off with? or...... anyway, like I was saying...:-))

To start with, I am posting a quote from a book I am reading, an update on the local Answers in Genesis conference we attended, and some other things as well.

Please pray for my dad, too. He is going to Dothan Al. ( home of my friend Sarah) for a special job interview, so we will really appreciate prayers.


Believe in Something

Okay, I loved this one so much I just had to share.

"All of us have to believe in something transcendant," he says, "There is a sense in disney that you have to believe in a transcendant power. Americans have faith, and if you have faith, things will work out well. Many in this country believe that people who don't have faith in something are really non-American. We're not really going to tell you what you have to believe in, but you have to have faith in something beyond yourself. It's not what you believe in that makes the difference, it's the believing that makes the difference. Believing people are to be trusted; non-believing people are not to be trusted. So we don't care what you believe in, but if you don't have a faith, you're nothing in American society."

Tony Campolo as quoted in The Gospel According to Disney by Mark I. Pinsky

Ephasis already there.

First Reading: Hmmm.... it's kind of hard to see what's being said here, but I think I'll get it....

Second Reading: So it doesn't matter what I believe in?

Third Reading: So if I believe in Big toes, I am automaticlly a good person and can be trusted! Wait, it says something beyond myself.

Fourth Reading: so if I believe in somebody else's big toe, am I automatically a good person?

You go figure.

Interview with the Botkin Sisters

Anna Sofia and Elizabeth Botkin have posted their interview! You can read the first part here, and the second part here.

Has anybody seen their DVD yet? I love it!


Answers In Genesis Conference

We went to a special AIG conference this past weekend that was put on by a local church. It was really good! They had Mr. Ken Ham there, as well as a Dr. David Menton, who I hadn't heard before. On Friday night Dr. Menton gave a talk called "Fearfully and Wonderfully Made", about how a baby is conceived and how it grows in the womb. I don't see how anybody can walk away from something like that and not see the Creator. It was simply fascinating! As always, :-), we bought a ton of books and DVDs, including Demolishing Strongholds, which I have been wanting for some time.

They also talked about more additions they are making to the museum, which makes me want to go back even more!

Final Update

We got back from Uncle Mac's memorial service Wednesday night. Thank you so much for your prayers! This was all very sudden, as nobody was aware that he had cancer at all. Pancreatic cancer is generally undetectable until the last minute. The last time we had seen him, a few months ago, he was extremely healthy. The "suddenness" of his death has been very tough on his family, so please continue to pray for them.

I put the parenthesis around suddenness because, although it may seem sudden to us, he was called home at just the right time to God.

Hebrews 9:27
And as it is appointed unto men once to die....


School Pictures

Our mama took us outside the other day to take some school pictures. My mama used to be really good with photography and she has started taking it up again. So here are some of our favorites.

We didn't take any of Natalie that day, but I'll be putting up photos of her soon.

Uncle Mac passed away this morning at about 4:00 A.M. Our plans have been altered so that we will be leaving on Wednesday instead of today. Please continue to keep our family in your prayers. Thank you.

This is a request for prayers for my dad's Uncle Mac. He is in the hospital with pancreatic cancer and the doctors think he could die any time.

There's really nothing that can be done now, but please pray for the family, that everyone will have God's grace for this. We will be leaving for Albany, where he lives, tomorrow morning. Thank you all.
