My beef!

MY BEEF: “Cafeteria” Christians: these are so-called “Christians” who pick and choose what they want to follow from God’s Word; if they don’t like a particular Commandment they “omit” it, and try to “justify” it  as ” God doesn’t care if I’m gay/ shacking up /an unwed parent/committing adultery/lying.etc..” or “I’m an ‘exception'”, “God won’t punish me for just this ONE thing…”, “I’m a ‘good’ person otherwise; it will ‘make up’ for it”, “God will understand”, etc.. trying to excuse their sinful choices rather than just obedience, pure and simple. It really IS black and white; God’s Truth IS absolute,not subjective or up for personal preference or interpretation. There are even some who say their church/priest/pastor/religion is “liberal” and “modern” and “doesn’t ‘judge'”, etc.. all kinds of excuses! UNBELIEVABLE!! God doesn’t call us to be “perfect” but He DOES call us to be faithful,and that means obeying ALL,and not use the excuse critics trying to uphold godly standards are “judgemental” or ” self-righteous” because they are doing the right thing. It’s SIMPLE: Do as God tells you; ALL of it, not parts; don’t pick and choose what “suits” you! That will NOT get you into Heaven!! It makes you disobedient, a hypocrite,a phony,a lax “Christian”, and a bad example!

Open for business!

The pool guys came and opened up our pool for the season! They drained away the mosquito-infested “swamp” on the top of the pool cover(surprised they didn’t find an alligator in there!!) and undid the winterizing stuff, put the needed chemicals in,and put up the diving board and ladders and now we have to run the hose for 1-2 days to re-fill it! Then it has to be vacuumed and the thermal “blanket” goes on and once it warms up(2 weeks or so) we can swim!! We also have to get a new “We don’t swim in your toilet so don’t pee in our pool” sign; the old one “died” over the winter!

Wilson is such a ham!

Our puppy Wilson(like the one here) is such a ham! He and the 2 year old were fighting over the Phlat ball,and he likes to snuffle along the porch and chase and then lick,and proceed to eat, ANTS off the carpet! He chases bees too!He’ll also bark to get your attention and mooches for food!What a ham!
