Examine


"Bear one another's burdens, and thereby fulfill the law of Christ. For if anyone thinks he is something when he is nothing, he deceives himself. But each one must examine his own work, and then he will have reason for boasting in regard to himself alone, and not in regard to another. For each one will bear his own load." Galatians 6:2-5

We're In!

I am overwhelmed by God's amazing Grace!
What do I say?
Our movie "Never Be Shaken" made it into the Young Filmmakers category of the San Antonio Independent Christian Film Festival!
During this process the LORD has proved Himself to be the ultimate Director.
He is the One who created this!
“…all things were created by Him, and for Him: and He is before all things, and by Him all things consist.” Colossians 1:16-17
Thank you, Lord!

Your Daddy's Voice


Incline Your ear. Give attention. Listen to me.
Do not forget. Receive my words.
*That you may gain understanding*
Words like these come often from the voices of fathers in the Bible. I can see how their relationship with God and family is formed by their open communication. They speak and they listen, they pray and they sing. Their hearts are not hidden from those they love.
Many of us have heard much wisdom on learning to listen and obey our fathers' guidance, but many others have never even heard the counseling voice of their father. They lack something they themselves can not fill. Where is this sound teaching and wise instruction? You shouldn't think of this as an unfortunate fate, but rather it is a unique position.
Think of our relationship to our Heavenly Father. There was a time when you didn't know His voice. But something changed as you drew near to His teaching. It was not the Lord who changed, it was you.
Now you talk with Him. Walk with Him.
Listen to Him. Praise Him.
He knows your heart and all that you know.
It can be the same way with your Daddy. You may not know him very well because he never communicates with you. Maybe he doesn't listen, pray or sing.
Maybe he doesn't know you want to know him.
You can change.
Now talk with him, walk with him,
listen to him, praise him.
Don't wait for him to change.
He will see your heart and all that you know.
Be patient. If you know your Heavenly Father, you can know your Daddy. You must establish your communication with God before you can effectively communicate with others.
"Watch over your heart with all diligence, for from it flow the springs of life."
Proverbs 4:23

Civil War Reenactment




My little helpers gathering firewood.

My Dad's First Battle







Some Fellow Reenactors

They all are great people!







Our Commander-in-Chief
(She was captured during the pirate raid)

Albert


At the first reenactment of the year we all nicknamed us girls with guy names and the guys with girl names. (I don't know how that happened.)

We then started a new tradition of branding a name on a piece of firewood and putting it over one of our filled-in camp fire pits before we all leave. At this event we "buried" Albert. (AMBER)


I guess it means we are really sad to leave.
