Over the years I have learned when you serve, when you give, you get back (life is indeed more abundant then) just got back from hanging out with jane : ) (elder of the churches wife).................

Over the years I have learned when you serve, when you give, you get back (life is indeed more abundant then) just got back from hanging out with jane : ) (elder of the churches wife). Had a good time, I was definately trying to "serve" her and she was trying to "serve" me JANE WON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! : ) it's alright : )
  We ended up making cards.........................(I forgot to bring my camera with me)..............

I sometimes battle being "self absorbed" (you don't even have to look far on this here blog to figure that out) 
 I've found serving, in serving others................I gain the life more abundantly jesus came to bring me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! John 10:10 "The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly." Jesus served all kinds of people..........he sure did go to many a people's house etc. (jesus didn't have a house so he didn't have people over) but he served and he lived a fantastically abundant life via serving!
Philippians 2:5-8 "Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross."
  I told Jane today (there's a conference at apostolic christian church of america in silverton next month on the topic of "communication" my husbands going to it - I'm stayin home with the kids) that I've gotten better at communication over time.............part of communication is being attentive to the person you are speakin to's needs. And I have a friend that, made it clear to me she likes me calling her on the phone and I took note of that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And I have another friend who likes to hang out with me and have "girl time" do "girl time" things with me, and I took note of that! 
  Friendships if they were one sided that pry wouldn't work out to good. I've found the more I give of my time etc. etc. the more I get basically....................it's worth it..............................it's worth it to lay down my life and serve. 
(being self absorbed - bad plan) 
  And I pretty well invited myself back over to janes house : ) I'm real bad about that..............I've been really bad about that ever since I was a little little kid (when I was little I was at my friends sally's house all the time, like near every weekend.........................her mom made really good breakfast burritos!!!!!!!!!!!!!) 
  It was a good visit for me, left knowing ok, my church likes me : ) 
(my latest painting, not fully done yet, "American Robin" eggs in a nest) not american robin birds on top though those are dollar store birds : ) 
One our cats climbed up on our refridgerator and like killed my cuckoo clock........................the clock is in pieces and broken, like the whole clock was killed! Think I miss my cuckoo clock. We didn't have nowhere to hang it that the cats couldn't get to it. 
 I have a cold, but adding a song anyways...............Zion's Harp song 159 "Self-Sacrifice" very popular song verses 1 through 3...................I HAVE A COLD THOUGH!.......................
Have a great week earth!

Video blog post: My circumstances in life don't define me, my heart does Proverbs 23:7 "For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee."

video

(In this video I sang song 320 verse 1 of the Gospel Hymns titled "Nearer the Cross" by there's two names here F.J. Crosby and Mrs. J.F. Knapp...........I messed up at one part of it and made mention of that at the end to my husband : ) 
My circumstances in life don't define me, my heart does Proverbs 23:7 "For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee."
Does whether I have a job or no - determine my worth????????????
Does whether I am a girl or a boy - determine my worth?????????????
 Proverbs 23:7 "For as he thinketh in his heart, SO IS HE:........." In context this verse has a negative slant but for me it's very encouraging for today. For I am called out of this world, I am the chosen of god! FOR AS HE THINKETH IN HIS HEART, SO IS HE:..........................."!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Mark 9:23 "Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth."
Not whether I have a job, or don't have a job, or am 50lbs overweight, THAT ISN'T THE STUFFS THAT DETERMINES HOW IT IS WITH ME!!!!!!!!!! THAT ALL "DEFINES" ME AS A PERSON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (it's not how the house looks on the outside BUT WHAT'S INSIDE THAT HOUSE ------------- LOVE, HOPE, FAITH, PATIENCE, ETC.) 
 My circumstances do not define me. I do need something to do more with my free time and I'm about to volunteer at a animal shelter (weekly for 6 months if not longer). My baby gift basket making athon has came to a end.............they haven't handed any out in a long time at church, I was told they are piled high in a box somewhere!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  Psalm 5:11 "But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee."
  ------------- Jesus didn't overcome this world with negative thinking John 16:33 "These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcomethe world." (the kind of negative thinking where you say to yourself "well everyone else around me is watching tv I'm doomed now" ----------- just don't go flick on the tv..................go read a nice book, or paint like I do, garden, gardening is awesome!!!!!!!!!!!! etc.)
PS..............and overcoming the world shouldn't be a "maybe I might do that" let me think about that item in your minds either for the bible says............1 John 5:4 "For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh theworld, even our faith." For whatsoever is born of god, doesn't maybe over come the world ------------- "For whatsoever is born of god OVERCOMETH THE WORLD"
  What does that mean overcoming the world -------------- that you ain't bound anymore to the lusts of the flesh! You just fine without the fashions of this world, without the tv (though I watch news I think it's important to know what's going on in the world) etc. You realize you no longer need to be bound to the worlds system 1 Peter 4:2 "That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God."
Have a great week earth!

Video blog post:Exposing the "once saved always saved" false doctrine, for the bible says in the book of revelations "Revelation 3:5 "..................I will not blot out his name out of the book of life," If "once saved always saved was true" NOBODIES NAME WOULD EVER BE BLOTTED OUT THEN!!!!!!!!!!......................


video
(sang one line of this song it says.........."I have decided to follow jesus, I have decided to follow jesus, I have decided to follow jesus, No turning back...........no turning back")
Exposing the "once saved always saved" false doctrine, for the bible says in the book of revelations "Revelation 3:5 "..................I will not blot out his name out of the book of life," If "once saved always saved was true" NOBODIES NAME WOULD EVER BE BLOTTED OUT THEN!!!!!!!!!!
Even paul himself said 2 Corinthians 10:12 "For we dare not make ourselves of the number, or compare ourselves with some that commend themselves: but they measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise." I think that paul knew not to say to himself "that's that I'm of the elect saved forever" but also I think paul knew that that is a proud sort of stance to take..............to say "that's that I'm saved forever the elect done deal"
  He kind of said he was elect at this point of the bible 2 Timothy 4:6-8 "For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing." That was pretty well at his death bed..........he surely did not walk around his whole life saying he was of the elect, nor I don't think boasting of that in his heart.
  THERE WAS A "GOOD FIGHT OF FAITH" PAUL NEEDED TO FIGHT FIRST (AGAINST THE LUSTS OF HIS FLESH) A COURSE TO FINISH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 
  Races any you out there like me long distance runners, you know there are often 3 water stops, every 2 miles...........let me get to my point.............RACES TAKE AWHILE TO FINISH............They are not finish bamn the second that you get baptised!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Races take awhile to finish. Even if you are a olympian and I ran with a few olympians (and also was trained by a olympian for the jesse owens olympics - only made it to the pre-semi finals won bronze medal) olympians like a 10k race, most of them take 15-25 minutes to finish a 10k race. I'm saying even the best of the best of the best on earth.....................HAVE TO SIT AND RECOGN WITH THEMSELVES that this race they is about to run is going to likely take them AT LEAST 15-25 minutes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AT LEAST!!!!!!!!!!!!! 
 Revelation 3:5 "He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels."
Note --------- "he that overcometh" that is a lot more then just accepting jesus as your savior and getting baptised.
 hello planet we are in a race, and as paul said in a race ALL RUN! (you stuck runnin nomadder what, whether you are runnin for temporal for passing away things or to obtain things eternal!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
1 Corinthians 9:24 "Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain." 
run that way
fight the good fight of faith!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

How you look visibly is of some importance but it is not everything, whether you bear fruit or not this is of MUCH GREATER IMPORTANCE......(then whether you wear a bun in your head and if your a brother dress pants and a dress shirt everyday etc.).................

How you look visibly is of some importance but it is not everything, whether you bear fruit or not this is of MUCH GREATER IMPORTANCE......(then whether you wear a bun in your head and if your a brother dress pants and a dress shirt everyday etc.)
  Recently I died my hair.............originally I was thinking to myself that I would just walk the streets with my long flowing blond hair (my hair is long, long, long, flowing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) But I have since changed my mind (with the exception of date night, also I believe the holidays could be exceptional as well, and maybe even family photo's)
  1 Timothy 2:9 "In like manner also, that women adorn themselves inmodest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;" If you literally walk around looking like this all the time that pry wouldn't be "modest"..............

this a pic of the girl from the "Game of Thrones" of course I've never seen that show but I've wanted to look like her for months now - having seen many pictures of her. My husband is friends with Ru Emerson the writer of the zena novels, and I've hanged out with her a lot, and I have also watched a lot of zena tv shows (back when I was watching tv) and at some point I decided I wanted to look like a warrior princess and that was that!
(not my fiercest warrior princess picture by a landslide, my warrior princess selfies are so over the top, I decided upon this photo) In my mind I'm a non-combative warrior princess 
I am definately not a housewife in my mind THAT WOULD BE FANTASTICALLY BORING!
  I took many tai quan do (however that spelled) classes in college...........when we moved to the actual tai quan do building cause we were karate nuts and we went past the classes available............I used to sit and punch brick walls real hard ------------ was wanting to crush the bricks............FYI if karate studios have walls of any kind they make sure they are built well! 
   Back to what I was saying.....................you fruit is so important. The bible says..........
Matthew 5:13 "Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men."
 So I recogn whatever you do today, love people!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Matthew 5:13 is right.............if you have lost your salt.........you are good for nothing then, "but to be cast out, and to be trodden under the foot of men" 
  So how you visibly appear is like 2nd or 3rd or 4th in """importance""""""" #1 BEAR FRUIT, love people. Me and my husband are very much of the mindset that jesus went to bars etc. cause he loved people, he cares about people he wants us to be SAVED! 
  God himself is no respector of persons..............
Acts 10:34-35 "Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him." DO THAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 
  (How you look on the outside is much less important then how you is on the inside that's my whole point, and also that we can encourage everybody everywhere to do good...........to better themselves somehow.........................but mostly AND LOVE ONE ANOTHER AND CARE ABOUT ONE ANOTHER) 
  And sometimes we can't help people in need cause we don't got the money, but in that event pray, listen to them, be a support, do what you can.......................bearing good fruit costs $0 dollars! 
Have a great day earth!
LOVE
Recently I nearly envied one my facebook friends, cause she has friends so high up in the body of christ that one her friends she said gets 5,000 hits a day to her blog. But paul he was content to be abased or to abound Philippians 4:11-13 "Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me." I am ACTUALLY PROBABLY really where god wants me to be, and if that means my blog is lower on the totem pole it's alright, I'm learning to be content : )

I was wrong, go ahead eat all the meat with blood in it you want! Mark 7:18-20 It's hard to be right all the time about the bible there is what 100,000's of bible verses in there I DON'T GOT EVERY LAST ONE MEMORIZED (close though)........................


(I want to have lisa and jane, 2 sisters over to my house this month I already bought the paper lanterns there 10 them in that pic to the left, to make the flower ball lanterns on the right - I made those. I have decided that having 2 sisters over at a time is the thing for me, cause if I teach to many a "craft" that's harder for me, and 2 sisters then it's a group of girls having "girl time" and I recogn that is a good idea)
   I was wrong, go ahead eat all the meat with blood in it you want! It's hard to be right all the time about the bible there is what 100,000's of bible verses in there I DON'T GOT EVERY LAST ONE MEMORIZED (close though.........when I was a kid I competed in bible memorization competitions and made it to the state championship a few times) 
  Today the elder of the church in silverton read Mark 7:18-20 "And he saith unto them, Are ye so without understanding also? Do ye not perceive, that whatsoever thing from without entereth into the man, it cannot defile him; Because it entereth not into his heart, but into the belly, and goeth out into the draught, purging all meats? And he said, That which cometh out of the man, that defileth the man."
  If I were proud I probably wouldn't admit to this mistake. But you know what, if you admit to some sort of mistake like this.............everyone nearly makes mistakes every now and then. Your likely about to find mercy. And if you weren't to find mercy then the people that were not merciful to you well they also wouldn't find mercy Matthew 18:35 "So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses." --------- BUT YOUR LIKELY ABOUT TO FIND A LOT OF MERCY. Admiting I was wrong doesn't lessen me somehow........it probably like unlessens me......cause that's a sign of humility to admit you were wrong. So win win win : ) 
  (which my saying "so win win win" might drive a few brothers out their minds - but what would you rather - would you rather I be proud??????????????) Some brother's, some sisters even may think I have some chip on my shoulder........................
------ I know that when the elder of the church like today based a entire sermon off of stuffs I've blogged and said to him today (chat to become a member) well I'm supposed to be esteemed very high, and I know I am supposed to be esteemed very very very very very high I know this.
 I know it ain't cause I'm all that and some bag of chips, like I know where reality is basically, the bible says Ephesians 3:17 "That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love," We can all do this, be rooted and grounded in love, it is extremely possible.
  Same with my blog being up there on the blogosphere, I know I'm supposed to be esteemed real high, I'm mindful of where I am..............pretty grounded. I have battled pride before and that has always been very bad for me, so I most the time do all I can to not be prideful.
 (((((((((((((I think god He's in control, He wants us all saved, and He knows what he's doing.......................he often raises up the refuse and dirt of the earth, for my salvation sake that people pray for me..................and I think for other people's salvation sakes that they can more easily find humility ------- that's what I recogn))))))))))
  If you were like, just like....................going to people houses all the time during the week "high rollin it" in the body of christ...........................and then you like had a big time blog on top of that, if you "had it all" you wouldn't be humble probably. We all suffer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! All us following jesus...................1 Peter 3:14 "But and if ye suffer for righteousness' sake, happy are ye: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled;" John 16:33 "These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world." (in my estimation tribulation is suffering.........Hebrews 5:8 "Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered;")
 I'm tryin to say our sufferings the things we suffer, work together for our good Romans 8:28
"And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose." I will alot that maybe compared to some I "have it made", but I surely do suffer for jesus's sake.
  And my parents have lived away from me for now around 13-14 years - states away whole other side of the usa from me right now. I have a older sister, aunt, cousin, 2 nephews and neice 1 1/2 hour drive away............but other then that great deal my family lives far away from me. NEAR A ORPHAN!
 I'm stating my I don't have a silver spoon, case. My husbands family mostly lives 20 minutes away from me, so aways away. I have not a life of complete ease and luxury and fabness. (due to the fact that I am a very good crafter a little fabness : ) hahahahahahahhahahahahahaahah
 BUT I SURELY SUFFER FOR JESUS'S SAKE! Everyday I deny myself and I take up my cross and follow jesus..............
I could watch tv all day if I wanted to
I could go drinking if I wanted to
there's all kinds of things if I wanted to I could go do
But I choose not to.................................
John 10:17-18 "Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again. No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father."
  Do I maybe have some "special" the rest of the body of christ does not have?????????? Well if I did, I greately estimate, it's because I'm really weak and need the extra help, and the extra prayer........................................which I'd like to point out those ain't the words of a proud person either! 
UPDATE.........................getting rid of my electric guitar never played it really, getting a piano (I couldn't play the electric guitar really for the life of me, but my mom had a organ most my life....for years, so I know how to play the piano pretty well...........at least one of my mom's organs had the same "key layout" as a piano)
.............................gave up the idea of the tiny house, building a trailer to haul stuff in instead (not enough time, and my husband now goes to work everyday of the week except wednesday, before he was working from home most days of the week) 
ps.............I'm mostly a vegan these days......I only would be willing to eat meat with the sticker............meat with blood in it, is gross in my mind these days (like went to some vegan place in my mind, I'm not trying to be a snot right now). Am I the only one out there that has sat and stared at all the packages of bloody meat at the grocery store and really thought about that???????????????

The battle to suffer the lose of all things when you have the mentality of a hoarder (sometimes) Philippians 3:8 "Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ,"...................

The battle to suffer the lose of all things when you have the mentality of a hoarder (sometimes) Philippians 3:8 "Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ,"
(my new years resolution is to drastically reduce the usage of you tube down to hopefully near nothing) Sometimes my kids want me to see a video, so there'll nomadder what be a few times I go to you tube. Cause sometime's I have watched video's that were wordly ------- it's a lot of a temptation for me you tube is the devil sure didn't make it hard for us to be friends with the world he made that easy just 1 CLICK AWAY - YIKES It's often on my mind that day god visited me and told me "come out of her my people" Revelation 18:4 "And I heard another voice from heaven, saying,Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues."
  Somedays I think with myself that I gain something, chatting with you tubers etc. BUT AM I GAINING WHAT I NEED TO GAIN IN THAT???????????????? Luke 9:25 "For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, or be cast away?"
  I'm a fool that has in the past had jet black hair - crimped I might add, a few shades of maroon hair, went through the combat boot wearing phase of life..........................not even sure if I was trying to be other people, or trying to improve on myself like you would a house????????????????? (probably the latter scary as that thought is) I recogn it is real possible to lose yourself, to get so caught up in these you tube video's and so wanting to be like all those people that you LOSE YOURSELF!
...............though some people are actually of the world (and that is a whole nother ball of wax)
BUT I AM NOT OF THIS WORLD AND I DON'T WANT TO BE EITHER! 
I don't want to lose myself, whatever friends, or whatever it is that I could gain via being a friend with this world...................isn't really worth it. Isn't worth losing potentially my soul over.
 Paul philippians 3:8 he suffered the loss of all things and counted them as dung to win jesus, I've decided this is the thing to do! To not be going playing the harlot on the you tube - which I know with myself I don't think in my own mind that I've been playing the harlot, but it very well could be in god's mind that that's exactly what I've been doing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 Paul suffered the loss of all things, it's ok for me to not be on you tube!!!!!!!!!!!! (myself you'll survive it) You still have the blogosphere and pinterest : ) my latest pin http://www.pinterest.com/pin/546131892288025910/
  (crafting is how I stay away from the tv, it's been a absolute blessing for me, and yes I'm much into mosaics lately, and finally getting good at it, and I'll make this stuffs while listening to ac streamer often!!!!!!!!!)
  I don't want to be a friend with this world, let other people be a friend with this world not me, let them have all the eons of friends to. They can go ahead and live it up............
I choose to suffer!
1 Peter 4:13 "But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy." 
Yesterday I mosaic'd this.................................

Should I glue it to the pot...............if a giant gust of wind happened is the ball going to go flying in the air???????? I don't know????????????
Have a great week earth!
LOVE
