I want to urge people not to be fearful to have a ministry, that god is plenty able to keep one humble......................

(one of my latest paintings, yes that is a actual street reflector thingy - 
I bought it at a local craft store..........in a hippy town)
I want to urge people not to be fearful to have a ministry, that god is plenty able to keep one humble. I suspect there are a great many people that stay quiet out of fear that they might get prideful. Though I am fully aware, that many if not the bulk of "ministries" are in the form of letters or e-mails to people and/or churches, paul he wrote a great deal of letters in the bible (he also received a great deal of letters). I do not hear of many people even getting such "type" of letters in the mail, but I hope they are happening out there. ((((I myself both write and e-mail them to people))
  For surely we should be speaking to one another in many bible verses 2 Peter 3:10-11 "But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,"
  But anyways, back to my idea that god is able to keep us humble 2 Corinthians 12:7 "And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffetme, lest I should be exalted above measure."
  God isn't in the buisiness of setting us up to fail, god's in the buisiness of setting us up to succeed!!!!!!!
 Though pride is something to think about I believe, both general pride and what the bible calls "the pride of life". Recently reading the bible I came across a verse that really grabbed my attention............
2 Samuel 17:23 "And when Ahithophel saw that his counsel was not followed, he saddled his ass, and arose, and gat him home to his house, to his city, and put his household in order, and hanged himself, and died, and was buried in the sepulchre of his father."
  Ahithophel, for sometime was a leader right and he was used to people doing what he said............whether he had pride or not I can't say. What I can say, is it's good to be prepared for the idea of people NOT listening to you. 
  For sure, I mean ok like if I'm like the lowest of the low right. If I'm like the grime of society right. If I be for sure the bottom of the barrel or close to..................
God can use me! 
God can use all of us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
1 Peter 5:5-7 "Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble. Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you."
  I love this song........I ain't sure it fits this post, but it fits my thoughts today. I want heavens light to shine down on me : )
Have a great week!

The bible talks about the "foolish virgins" they went and had fun cause they saw jesus christ's return was tarrying (this is my estimation of things) NOW IS THE TIME TO BE AWAKE!...........................

The bible talks about the "foolish virgins" they went and had fun cause they saw jesus christ's return was tarrying (this is my estimation of things) NOW IS THE TIME TO BE AWAKE!
Matthew 25:1-9 "Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves."

  I'm not 100% about Matthew 25:5 "While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept." If all of the body of christ sleeps - but I don't think it's the case though many pastors have taught that to me over the years that the whole body of christ would sleep.
  Maybe I am asleep.............maybe most us are all nap nap???????????? Maybe I'm clean in a jesus christ comma right now thinking I'm writing a blog awake while I'm like actually like sleep walking????????????
 god wants us ON FIRE
even if we are all asleep right now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  This war against the lusts of our fleshes it don't end maybe til near the point of our deaths.....................it takes zeal and fire to win this war!!!!!!!!! Paul in the bible didn't say he finished the course until he was old...................could take a long time to finish the course???????????????
2 Timothy 4:7 "I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:"
 I'm including a janis joplin song in this post cause I think there are many a slumbering christian (not sure if the whole body of christ ain't asleep, I'm saying some are indeed slumbering to much - not having enough oil for their lamps IT'S IN THE BIBLE!!!!!!!!) My advise to the "too asleep" "Just try a little bit harder"................................
  Lot of soul to some of janis joplins songs, I'm feeling her sometimes, maybe it's just cause she felt??????????? Maybe she was just so alive????????? (if anybody can even grab what I'm trying to say SHE WASN'T ASLEEP)
  My parents one day on a long car drive talked a slew of smack about janis joplin, they estimated that she was like the most wicked woman ever...........................I was a teen at the time.......................that just perked my interest in janis so bad ----------- I was sure she hadn't killed nobody or nothing, how could this lady be that bad. I clean to this day can't see with my eyeballs looking at janis joplin footage all the house of horrors badness about her that my parents said existed.................
I see a 20 something kid bit mislead that's about it. Who maybe like had a ruff childhood and such. I don't see someone that couldn't of been saved, or loved! 
  I see hope really.
   I need to try a little bit harder I believe.......to love more. 
  Sooooooooooooooooooooooooo..........................................................I went ahead and dyed my hair full out blonde. I work (well as a volunteer) at a christian thrift store, that has influenced my decision to go tichel less ------------ this has been a long drawn out decision. 
  I felt like a target, wearing that tichel. Pastor at my church 2 sundays ago gave this huge sermon about how the wall of partition is gone and nobodies better then anybody else. 
I hadn't done nothin I swear I was just sitting there that sunday wearing a tichel only pry christian jew in the building. I suspect a "big deal" was being made about my tichel. Tryin to get the gunfire off myself a bit. 
  I do not believe my hair is my glory my long hair was scraggly it didn't feel glorious for me really (I was enjoying covering it up with the tichel ----------- but annoying everyone around me looks to be) 1 Corinthians 11:15 I'm saying keeping my hair long wasn't a option if I was going to walk around with it in view, all for the sake of not making people uncomfortable. I wasn't digging my long hair at all...........except when it was nicely tucked away in a cute tichel then I was digging it. 
 Not only do I bear a resemblance to marilyn monroe I agree with her when she said.............."It's all make believe isn't it?" I have a hard time believing a great deal going on around me is actually real.............in my estimation there must be at least some level of "pretend" going on. OR I HOPE SO AT ANY RATE! 
 But it don't matter how we look, it does a bit as far as how people perceive you etc. But it's how we love 
and live I'd say (even if we just read our bible, and pray in a day ------------ GOD NOTICES THAT ------------ THAT'S WHAT THE BIBLE IS SAYING WHEN IT SAYS "AWAKE TO RIGHTEOUSNESS" THAT'S A PART OF THAT IDEA THERE!
1 Corinthians 15:34 "Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God: I speak this to your shame."
  Our lives may not look to different from the worlds somedays in someways (we many have jobs, etc. etc.)...................that effort of reading your bible and praying that is different! 
That ain't what all this world is doing out there! 
Tryin a little bit harder! 
ps...........I realize I look a touch like marilyn monroe and I do enjoy that : ) that is fun in my estimation. I'm a definate marilyn monroe fan..............I think marilyn did look for the good in people like I do. Though I know she tried to declare herself a villian (I don't view her as a villian at all) she needed jesus though..........we all do.

The "rat race" for money, and status etc. it's real and it's a rat race ok...........you all need to with jesus christ's help turn into cats get your cat walk on..................

The "rat race" for money, and status etc. it's real and it's a rat race ok...........you all need to with jesus christ's help turn into cats get your cat walk on..................like jesus and lucifer alright, they both cats.........facts....................
1 Peter 5:8 "Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:" - the devil himself he ain't runnin around that gerbil wheel tryin to be something big in this world.............naw, "as a roaring lion" 

As a cat!
clever guy he knows what's what
He knows not to be no gerbil running silly on no wheel!
Revelation 5:5 "And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof."
The lord ain't no gerbil either, he a lion RAWR!
THE GERBIL WHEEL BIBLE VERSE.............
1 John 2:16 "For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world."
  If you gonna stay in the "rat race" you gonna keep up doin 1 John 2:16............you gonna keep up lusting in your flesh for GARBAGE YOU DON'T EVEN NEED MOST IT
  And you gonna have all kinds of the "pride of life" cause you bought all this ----------------------
  And then you gonna keep on that gerbil wheel to maintain you pride of life cause you bought all this ---------------------------------------------
  That's just stupid. 
You know what cat's do???????????????
  Man, let me tell you what cat's do. They like go grab a bite to eat real quick......................AND THEN THEY ACTUALLY NAP. 
  Not gerbils ok..............................
they run around and around and around and around and around that wheel
 Hebrews 4:9-11 "There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God. For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his. Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief."
  I'm in like rest mode......feel me???????????????
  I don't even get these gerbils................pertinerre running for nothing.........................if you get the goods the "goods" right...........that are all so "cool" in this world....................few minutes later that stuffs is out of date, and you need the next latest "goods". And you don't even get there, little gerbils..................................you run around silly on that there wheel. The tv show "Keeping up with the Kardashian's" isn't titled ---------------------- go buy some gucci -------------- and bamn your a kardashian..................
no it's titled "Keeping up with the Kardashians" --------- at best you on a silly gerbil wheel runnin yourself silly just trying to KEEP UP with the kardashians. 
Forget that. 
I'd rather be like uncool for jesus - meow. 
(pic of me and my husband)
 Forget the lusts of the flesh, forget that gerbil wheel -------------------------- 
Like god wants us to be like zealous for good works right, so as a cat MEOW, you need to like move a bit. But like like most the day..........ya. 
  Like for reals earth........................I'm tellin you what I can tell you right now ok. Lucifer is called a roaring lion....................he ain't being no gerbil on no wheel for reals. And the lord jesus christ called the "lion of the tribe of juda" lion all kinds. CATS! LIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NOT GERBILS! 
Matthew 6:25 "Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?"
  Don't think about what your going to eat or what you are going to wear, or even don't even think on fitness to much ("nor yet for your body") that's gerbil logic right there. 
MEOW
".............IS NOT THE LIFE MORE THAN MEAT, AND THE BODY THAN RAIMENT?" AMEN 
meow
Have a great week!

I finally visited a synagogue today - still plenty christian - I've felt so distant from god lately I was hoping it would be helpful for me...............

I finally visited a synagogue today - still plenty christian - I've felt so distant from god lately I was hoping it would be helpful for me...............Deuteronomy 6:5 "And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might." Can I not work on that at a jewish synagogue if you ask me I'd say ya! (in addition to christian church on sundays was my thought) It was awkward, I stupidly thought I could walk into a full blown jewish synagogue and say I'm of the rubenstein family and that would be it...................like jewish pixie dust and all the blessings of abraham would just fall upon me instantly (I really did)...............

 It didn't like go baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaad. Some like pixie dust and the blessings of abraham hit me --- in a extreme full blown law heeding big time synagogue. I pry faired much better then most would...............like I could even show up again if I wanted to!!!!!!!!!!!! And I know I could!!!!!!!!!! 
 Most of the songs in hebrew I was able to sing (god's given me a knack for that language).
I don't like feeling far away from god! If I don't audibly hear from god at least once a week while praying......that bothers me. 
 I was trying to tell my husband earlier today, back in the olden days god spoke to people WELL HE STILL DOES nobody talks about that in the body of christ hardly but I'm pretty sure that's pretty normal or it should be normal. God the bible says is a jealous god, well if He is a jealous god, jealous for us..............wouldn't it make sense that He'd have stuffs to say to us from time to time?
Genesis 21:2 "For Sarah conceived, and bare Abraham a son in his old age, at the set time of which God had spoken to him." I do not believe Abraham and David and all these people in the bible god spoke to are some fluke instances, that this is normal. Deuteronomy 4:24 "For the Lord thy God is a consuming fire, even a jealous God." Though I could be lucky. I could of for most my life been really, really ridiculously lucky to of heard from god as much as I have..................
I long for god, I love to hear from Him
I can't handle not hearing from Him
no worldly item, no idolatry, no nothing of this world is worth getting in the way of my relationship with god/jesus! 3 John 1:2 "Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth."
  Pastors are big on prospering financially and health wise and there is nothing wrong with that but.........................
woe to me if my "soul" doesn't "prosper" 
woe to me in the spiritual desert land in a land of drought!!!!!!!!!!
 Isaiah 43:19-21 "Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.The beast of the field shall honour me, the dragons and the owls: because I give waters in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert, to give drink to my people, my chosen. This people have I formed for myself; they shall shew forth my praise."
  It could be I'm in some "desert time" so as to gain thirst................that it's all in god's plan. 

Psalm 42King James Version (KJV)

42 As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God.
My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God?
My tears have been my meat day and night, while they continually say unto me, Where is thy God?
When I remember these things, I pour out my soul in me: for I had gone with the multitude, I went with them to the house of God, with the voice of joy and praise, with a multitude that kept holyday.
Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted in me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him for the help of his countenance.
(((((((((((I mega dig psalm 42 verse 5 where it says "...................for I shall yet praise him for the help of his countenance")))))))))))) that's right whoever wrote psalms 42!
  I need to talk to god and hear from Him again, angels visiting me, the whole deal!!!!!!!!! Or else I pretty much feel afflicted.
  And I know people might read this and think...........ooooooooooo snap this is a rubenstein family member..................ya I am : ) 
If life was just what we weared and ate..................WHAT A HELL THAT WOULD BE!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

Luke 12:22-23 "And he said unto his disciples, Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat; neither for the body, what ye shall put on. The life is more than meat, and the body is more than raiment."
  Sweating it...................I haven't heard from god in so long I am sweating it................I thank god though I'm sweating it, that I am not content!
Revelation 3:17 "Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:" How many people out there these days are of the mindset "I'm blessed by god" and all content in that?????? Probably a lot of people. 
Are you on fire?????????????
Do you thirst for god??????????????
Psalm 42 "As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God."
ok ok myself
breath don't have some weird rubenstein family meltdown
GOD IS FAITHFUL!
Deuteronomy 7:9 "Know therefore that the Lord thy God, he is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations;"

Looking like Marliyn Monroe doppleganger past few weeks has gotten me thinking about "shamefacedness" 1 Timothy 2:9 AND WEARING MY TICHEL AGAIN.....................

Looking like Marliyn Monroe doppleganger past few weeks has gotten me thinking about "shamefacedness" 1 Timothy 2:9 AND WEARING MY TICHEL AGAIN.....................
1 Timothy 2:9 "In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;"
  The whole celebrity scene makes one believe ah glamor this is the thing. I've decided that need for "shamefacedness" comes from this very skill women seem to be much to good at............
aka being glamorous
  Man aren't as good at being glamorous, what can they do??????? Put on a tux, smoke a nice cigar, nomadder how nice their shoes are..........they are only going to look so glamorous. Women though us ladies, we can drape on jewels, faux furs, gowns We can look out of this world glam!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  God don't want us christian ladies doing that I've decided. It's hard..............in this selfie obsessed land, and I immensely feel the pressure having a super model sister, that I can't completely compare to, I'm not that skinny. And not all my selfies have that glamorous polished look to them that all her's do. But she is a supermodel and it is her job to look fabulous 24/7 and like most all super models she's really good at it.
  I'm back to wearing tichels..............I look good I think, it's a shamefaced look I believe.......(and I know not all christians is going to all start wearing tichels, I know other christian ladies have other ways to get this "shamefacedness" look going ------ via you know toning stuffs down in other ways whether that's not wearing flashy clothing etc. etc. ----------- I know you all gots skillz I'm sayin ---------- keep it up)
This world is glamour, we ain't supposed to be friends with this world that is glamour. (now my sister is a super model and that is her job and she is doing her job - if she took more homely looking selfies and put them online the modeling agencies might ding her for that). Hard for me constantly seeing all this glamour around me, and I want to look glamorous.............but the bible says don't do that. Take your selfies down a notch the bible be's sayin.......I think. 
   God don't ask none us to be faithful in a lot of things nope it's just a few everyone...................
Matthew 25:23 "His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord."
  It's great ladies and gentlemen to be faithful over the few things god has given us to be faithful over, let's do this!!!!!!!!!!!!
Have a great week!
LOVE

I'm a nerdy "McFly" from the movie "Back to the future" and I'm determined to 1 Peter 5:6 "Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:".........


I'm a nerdy "McFly" from the movie "Back to the future" and I'm determined to 1 Peter 5:6 "Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:"
  As a nerdy "McFly" from the "Back to the future" I noted, that McFly had 2 future's possible and don't we all, at least potentially have a few "future possibilities" that could happen to us?????????? Ecclesiastes 9:11 "I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but timeand chance happeneth to them all."
  In one future McFly was still beated up by "Biff" and biff happened to be a bully, but I think in life biff could possibly not be a bully but just someone or some people that tower over you.............or stand in the way of you reaching your potential.
  In the other future McFly was having Biff wash and buff his car. But I noted McFly was caring and compassionate towards Biff towards his ex-bully, and in that part of the movie biff was still McFly's ex-bully ------------
who biff was didn't change
who McFly was changed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
   I noted not only did McFly change via more compassion for people. I noted how now in the good future for McFly he was dressed well. And his wife hair I noticed her hair was so much better, and she was wearing some nice makeup (not done in a bad streetwalker way her makeup, in a nice very classy way).
  1 John 4:16-18 "And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him. Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world. There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love."
  Though you know loving people this is the real way to be a McFly and not a biff. I guess I watched "Back to the future" to many times, and/or I'm to determined to be a successful McFly. So I want to look nice. Like look nice while I'm loving people. I guess just cause?????????????
   When god finally raises us up, don't that mean looking good to?????????????????? I honestly need this whole passage of bible verses to make my full point................
Luke 12

22 And he said unto his disciples, Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat; neither for the body, what ye shall put on.

23 The life is more than meat, and the body is more than raiment.

24 Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth them: how much more are ye better than the fowls?

25 And which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit?

26 If ye then be not able to do that thing which is least, why take ye thought for the rest?

27 Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

28 If then God so clothe the grass, which is to day in the field, and to morrow is cast into the oven; how much more will he clothe you, O ye of little faith?

  Per my reading of the bible, god ain't going to cloth us McFly's badly. 
love one another 
love, love, love, love, love seek god daily for surely the bible is true....................Luke 12:23 "The life is more than meat, and the body is more than raiment."
Have a great week!
Love McFly's wife
Sometimes I add a photo to make my blog a bit more interesting - or try. I've been going to the gym often, and my efforts on the elliptical have been paying off : ) I'll spend a full hour on the elliptical, few times a week anyways lately. Put in time in the bible it'll pay off, put in time at the gym it'll pay off. 
Mark 9:23 "Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things arepossible to him that believeth."

Are you really free?

Are you really free?
  My ideas about freedom have changed. Once I thought if I kept the apostolic christian church of america's rules about wearing a bun in my head, and (well clearly I didn't follow their no bangs rule : )  but I thought that free'd me up from being a "friend of the world".
  The only bible verse about hair in the bible or one of the very few, maybe there's another?
   1 Timothy 2:9 "In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shame facedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;" Don't have braided hair and that is it!
  Though I'm certain there has to be "mercy of god" towards african american's braided hair because, if they keep their hair natural it needs to be braided in many cases. (if their hair wasn't braided it would likely dreadlock...........yes I have experience with this type of hair).
   So lately I been wearing a wig, I felt trapped by the bun thing............instead of free I was feeling unfree. Or maybe unfree????????? I didn't like the whiff of maybe no free--edness.

  (those that wish to judge this photo and probably hate me go ahead judge away..........I've decided I forgive you, for the very people that would judge me and hate me, are the people most "bound" on this earth)
When jesus said John 8:36 "If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed." He meant free! Though I still think it's a plenty good plan to cover you head with a headcovering if you are a girl on sunday, when praying (if you don't have a poofed out wig on your head and can manage that that is..................).
  I think this crazy hairdo actually helps motivate me to dress modest (well most girls myself included wouldn't want to be thought of as a ----------------- insert street worker word here)
  I be's wearing baggy sweaters (and enjoying it : ), long skirts, baggy pants, etc. all kindssssssssssssssssssss these days : ) 
 Freedom is a wonderful thing! And I am a american and I love it! 
The bible much alludes to the idea that you will not know a people by how they look.........Matthew 7:20 "Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them." You'll know them by how they love. 
  God wants us ladies to not wear expensive clothing 1 Timothy 2:9 "In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shame facedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;"
no expensive clothing
no braids in hair
no gold and pearls which is basically expensive jewelry 
and wear modest apparel
--------------------- I went for years to churches that wanted to add to 1 Timothy 2:9 and say no jewelry don't wear no jewelry...........well it doesn't say that in 1 Timothy 2:9 it says don't wear the expensive stuffs. 
  God made us to be like girls. He didn't make us into boys. We many of us like glitter for instance - well we are girls - amen!!!!!!!!! 
  To the pure all things is pure Titus 1:15 "Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled."
  If you find some cheap cute costume jewelry at claires that you just gotta have........................ya it's bestest to suffer in the flesh as much as possible 2 Corinthians 1:5 "For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ."
  For reals though, getting real with the ladies...................................if there is a cute cheap 50 cents necklace at a garage sale....................that's 50 cents that's like free. 
 Is my logic that of a idiot for jesus's sake?????????
ya
I like suffering for jesus cool beans. It's supposed to be happy time following jesus "the joy of the lord is your strength" you don't want to get to feeling like your being chinese water tortured following the lord. Nehemiah 8:10 "Then he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared: for this day is holy unto our Lord: neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the Lord is your strength."
  If a 50 cent piece of jewelry at a garage sale makes following jesus a happy time - hey buy that!!!!!!!!!!!! You could tell me my logic is idiotic.....................but maybe it is genious????????????
Have a great week earth!
LOVE
