I am a Christian

When I say... "I am a Christian"
I'm not shouting "I'm clean livin'."
I'm whispering "I was lost,
Now I 'm found and forgiven."

When I say... "I am a Christian"
I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble
and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... "I am a Christian"
I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak
And need His strength to carry on.

When I say... "I am a Christian"
I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed
And need God to clean my mess.

When I say... "I am a Christian"
I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible
But, God believes I am worth it.

When I say... "I am a Christian"
I still feel the sting of pain.
I have my share of heartaches
So I call upon His name.

When I say... "I am a Christian"
I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner
Who received God's good grace, somehow!

21 Reasons for Buying Beads

1. Baggies and tubes of beads tightly packed in various containers make an excellent insulation for the home.

2. Buying beads keeps our economy going. It is our patriotic duty to support bead stores.

3. It is less expensive and more fun than psychiatric care.

4. Because they are on sale.

5. At any moment the employees of a bead factory might go on strike and limit the availability.

6. We are participating in a contest. The one with the most beads wins.

7. A bead keeps without refrigeration, you don't have to cook it to enjoy it, you never have to feed it, change it or walk it.

8. We need extra weight in the trunk of our cars for traction on icy or muddy roads. You never know when the weather might change.

9. Because we are worth it.

10. Like dust, containers of beads are good for protecting previously empty spaces in the house, such as ironing boards, dining room tables or any other horizontal surface.

11. If the BIG earthquake comes, all the bead stores might be swallowed into the ground and never seen again.

12. Stress from dealing with the "Bead Control Officer" (spouse) makes us do it.

13. Buying beads is not immoral, illegal or fattening. It calms the nerves, gratifies the soul and makes us feel good.

14. We have to buy beads before our husband retires and goes with us on all our shopping expeditions.

15. A bead purchase a day helps us work rest and play.

16. Beads are a proven aphrodisiac.

17. While shopping for beads you don't have to worry if they'll fit, or how big they will make your hips look.

18. Beads don't argue, or get crabby.

19. Beads get better with age, like women and wine.

20. You need never go near Loehmann's dressing room to buy beads.



When will we stop buying beads?????

Sing to the Lord

I will sing to the Lord, for He is highly exalte. Exodus 15:1

This verse is the first time the word (sing) is used in reference to believers in the Bible. God parted the Red Sea and rescued the Israelites. In response, Moses and the people lifted up what may have been the very first song. Ever since that time, music has been a way to mark the important moments in our lives and to proclaim Gods goodness.

P.S. if you are need beads please make sure you visit us at iBead.com, we have just about anything a beader needs to jumpo right into this beader craze and frenzy. Learn how to make your own jewelry with classes that we offer.

All the masterpieces of art contain both light and shadow. A happy life is not one filled with only sunshine, but one which uses both light and shadow to produce beauty.

Words...

And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up.

You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.

Deuteronomy 6:6-9

Your home is a canvas on which you paint a picture of your unique life experiences. You embellish it with personal expressions that reflect who you are, and what is important to you. Your home tells you your story so let it reflect your faith.

Choose this dam whom you will serve. As for me and my house we will serve the Lord.
Joshua 24:15

Hebrews 12 - 2

Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

How do I get to Heaven?

How to get to Heaven and be

Can you get there by...

...being a good person?

No. There is none good, no not one (Romans 3:10).

...keeping God's Law?

No. God's Law is our teacher to bring us to Christ(Galatians 3:22).

...doing good works? Guess Again. God's work is to believe on Him whom He has sent (John 6:29).

...being born? Does everyone go to heaven? No. The Bible says, "Behold I was brought forth in iniquity, and in sin did my mother conceive me. (Psalm 51:5)

So how do you get there?

You have to be perfect! (Matthew 5:48)

The Bible says that there is none good, no not one but God sent His Son, Jesus, to pay for our sins(Galatians 4:16, 1 Peter 2:24).

Jesus Christ died for our sins on the cross and rose on the third day, conquering sin and death (1 Corinthians 15:3-4).

Why did God do all this for you?

The Bible says that God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him should not parish but have everlasting life (John 3:16).

If you believe in Jesus you can have eternal life; and if you do not believe in Jesus, you will not see life, but the wrath of God remains on you (John 3:36).

To receive Jesus Christ and have your sins forgiven, simply confess with your mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead; and you shall be saved" (Romans 10:9).

Do you believe that Jesus Christ rose from the dead? Are you ready to confess Him as Lord?
If so, pray this prayer from your heart:"God, I am a sinner. Jesus died to save sinners. Jesus died to save me. Forgive me of my sins, cleanse me. Give me a new life. I will follow you everday from this day forward. In Jesus' name, Amen."

If you just prayed to receive Jesus Christ as your Lord, now you are what the Bible calls, "Born Again" (John 3:3). This means you have been born into God's family (1 John 3:1-2). You are God's child and your Father in heaven wants to teach you about Himself. So here aresome things you can do to learn about God and His love:

1st - Get a Bible and start reading at the Gospel of John. Read the Bible every day, so God can teach you His ways through His Word (Psalm 19:7-11).

2nd - Find a Bible teaching Christian Church and attend regularly (Hebrews 10:24-25). Beware of false teachers (Jude 4) such as Mormons and Jehovah's Witnesses.

3rd - Talk to God about everything (1 Thessalonians 5:17). Ask God for strength, thank Him, and pray for others.

Contact us and let us know of your decision! We want to encourage you and help you in any way we can.

For God So Loved the World

His Love is unquestionable,
its power unconquerable,
its impact unmistakable,
its meaning undeniable,
its mystery unexplainable,
its sacrifice incoparable,
its price unimaginable,
its depth immeasurable,
its absence unthinkable !

Why I wake up early



Have you ever ruled the house, I mean really rule the house, drink columbian coffee with your mom, and finish your unfinished math homework all before 6:45AM ? This is what I get to do every single morning, while other kids sleep like a rock till 8:15AM.

The way I mean, rule the house is like I'm practicly the only person there. However my dad is sleeping when I rule the house. Shhh don't tell! My sister is at school and my mom is off to work at 6:30AM. In the morning before I go to school I play runescape on the computer, watch Drake and Josh, and play counterstrike on the Xbox.

Every single morning of the week I drink columbian coffee with my mom. When my coffee isn't so hot I finish it in about 10 seconds. But on the other hand if my coffee is burning hot I finish it in about two minutes. While my mom and I have a delightful time driking coffee, we talk about my grades in school, I tell her my test scores.

When my math homework is incomplete I usually finish it in the morning. My math homework is usually done by 6:45AM. If it's not by then, I finish it by 7:00AM. If I have any other homework, I also do it.

These are just some of the reasons why waking up early get's my disposition up to trilled. I rule the house, drink columbian coffee with my mom and fisish my unfinished math homework. These are some of the reasons I suggest you to wake up early in the morning. Another suggestion for you is that if you wake up early is never try to jump over your couch. It leaves you on the floor saying ouch !!!

The Ripple Effect



As the rain and snow come down from heaven
and stay upon the ground to water the earth,
and cause the grain to grow and to produce seed for the farmer and bread for the hungry , so also is my Word.
I sent it out and it always produces fruit.

It shall accomplish all I want it to, and prosper everywhere I send it.

Isaiah 55:10-11, tlb
