Our 25th Anniversary

My husband was surprised when he bought me a dress for our 25th and without him knowing I wore the same dress we got married in.

My testimony

We united in marriage November 15,1974
My Dearest Beloved



Id just like to share with you all how I came to know Jesus as my savior and how he is daily helping me. I hope this will prove a blessing to you...
During my childhood my mother attended a Baptist church I remember she got baptized I can remember her assurance of
Knowing one day she would go to heaven
.I remember her going to church a couple of times not much, I asked her one day if I could get baptized
So I can have a home in heaven she then asked the minister that baptized her he replied she is not old enough I was around
8 years old. I couldn’t wait until I was old enough
At the age of 17 I married a wonderful man we talked to the minister
before our wedding and I asked him if I could get baptized he told me I couldn’t because I was not a member.
The church was in Virginia where my mother lived and we were going to Maine where my husband lived.
This was a time of rejection with my mother and consistent pressure of personal trouble and a feeling of emptiness in my heart.
Therefore I was acquainted with loneliness and rejection.
I then desperately needed to know the answer to the question; “What must I do to be baptized? I tried several Baptist churches
Knowing Baptist meant baptism. I tried a little country church my husband attended as a child I thought I found what I was
Looking for all I had to do is attend classes I hadn’t started my first class yet and I met up with my cousin Linda I have not seen in years
she told me about a church named Grace Baptist she attended and they don’t require baptism classes all I would have to do is go down the aisle
during invitation and state I’m saved and want to get baptized so I did around January of 1980 pregnant with my second child.
I was eager to tell all my relatives and one by one they got saved mostly by Pastor Boyle I thought
My life was complete until one day I signed up for a soul winning class that used a curriculum. I remember asking my husband
To practice with me of course he played the part of the unsaved (just kidding)my husband is wonderfully saved and as I was practicing I began to cry I told my husband I don’t remember asking God to save me he told me he don’t remember either. ( John 3:16)
,so I asked him to go over the sinners prayer with me and he did. I attended church many years after then one day my Pastor mentioned
in his message If you got baptized before salvation you were not baptized again that bothered me I wasn’t baptized I wanted to do what God wanted me to do.
It wasn’t easy knowing many people knew I got baptized in on March 1 of 1998 I made the decision to have my Pastor go
Over again
The plan of salvation we were parked in front of the church in our van with my husband present I bowed my head and for sure
I understood the truth and nailed it down, (The truth set me free). Then on March 4 1998 I got baptized.
I am grateful to God for this.
What then is believer's baptism? What is the purpose of it, since salvation is "by grace through faith" (Ephesians 2:8,9)?
Water baptism is a picture of something which already took place in the heart of the believer the moment he was saved Water baptism is representing the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Water baptism then, is a picture of spiritual baptism It is the outward testimony of the believer's inward faith. A sinner is saved the moment he places his faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Baptism is a visible testimony to that faith.Baptism never saved anyone.

The Roman's Road to Heaven In one minute I can explain to you how you can know for sure that if you died today you would go to Heaven.All you have to know are 4 things.1] Man is a sinner. Romans 3:10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;2] There is a price on sin, eternal death. Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; Romans 5:12 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:3] Jesus paid that price on the cross. Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.4] By faith in Christ we can be saved. Romans 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.HERE IS HOW YOU CALL UPON THE LORD Do you admit that you are a sinner?Do you believe Jesus is the Son of God?If you are sorry for your sins and would like for God to save your soul, just ask Him.Dear Jesus,
Please forgive me of my sins. I trust you today, JESUS, and only You, to take me to HEAVEN when I die. Thank you for saving me.
Amen.Just as you were born to your parents, you were born into the Kingdom of God when you called on Jesus!
If you prayed this prayer I would love to hear from you and rejoice with you.Please fill out the form and I will recommend a good church for you to attend in your area.
Hbr 10:25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some [is]; but exhorting [one another]: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.

My friend Beth out soulwinning

-- Post From My iPhone

2COR.6:1 We then, as workers together with him, beseech you also that ye receive not the grace of God in vain.
God is so wonderful caring loving all knowing he placed Beth in my life every time a need comes up,She is such a blessing.She has been working her schedule to help in time of need where Caleb is not capable to go with me.
Beth is one of the best soulwinners of our church she is not ashamed of Christ,as it reads in 1 cor.1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
I Have known Beth many years through soulwinning.When we go soulwinning we forget who is the silent partner.But we try to take turns.She is a person that lets the love of Christ flow through her.If we had more workers like Beth we could win our city in a short time.
9:37 Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few;
9:38 Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.

A song Im singing today

Isn't the Love of Jesus
Something Wonderful?
Words and Music by John W. Peterson
Romans 8:39
"Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us
from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."

There will never be a sweeter story,
Story of the Savior's love divine,
Love that bro't Him from the realms of Glory,
Just to save a sinful soul like mine.

Isn't the love of Jesus something wonderful,
Wonderful, wonderful.
O isn't the love of Jesus something wonderful,
Wonderful it is to me.
Boundless as the universe around me,
Reaching to the farthest soul away,
Saving, keeping love it was that found me,
That is why my heart can truly say;

Isn't the love of Jesus something wonderful,
Wonderful, wonderful.
O isn't the love of Jesus something wonderful,
Wonderful it is to me.
Love beyond our human comprehending,
Love of God in Christ how can it be?
This will be my theme and never ending,
Great redeeming love of Calvary.

Isn't the love of Jesus something wonderful,
Wonderful, wonderful.
O isn't the love of Jesus something wonderful,
Wonderful it is to me.

My God is so good My God is so great theres nothing my God can not do.

In Joshua I Was reading this morning 6:18 And ye, in any wise keep yourselves from the accursed thing, lest ye make yourselves accursed, when ye take of the accursed thing, and make the camp of Israel a curse, and trouble it.
6:19 But all the silver, and gold, and vessels of brass and iron, are consecrated unto the LORD: they shall come into the treasury of the LORD.
I see so many times when a person does wrong it hurts others as well.I Heard a good sermon years ago when a ship goes down the little boats go down also.
Busted!We cant hide from God no more than my dog can hide from me I Tell her to go to bed she thinks if her head is between my husbands legs i cant see her.
In Joshua 7:19 And Joshua said unto Achan, My son, give, I pray thee, glory to the LORD God of Israel, and make confession unto him; and tell me now what thou hast done; hide it not from me.
7:20-21 And Achan answered Joshua, and said, Indeed I have sinned against the LORD God of Israel, and thus and thus have I done:7:21 When I saw among the spoils a goodly Babylonish garment, and two hundred shekels of silver, and a wedge of gold of fifty shekels weight, then I coveted them, and took them; and, behold, they are hid in the earth in the midst of my tent, and the silver under it.
It affected his family in Joshua it reads 7:24 And Joshua, and all Israel with him, took Achan the son of Zerah, and the silver, and the garment, and the wedge of gold, and his sons, and his daughters, and his oxen, and his asses, and his sheep, and his tent, and all that he had: and they brought them unto the valley of Achor.
7:25 And Joshua said, Why hast thou troubled us? the LORD shall trouble thee this day. And all Israel stoned him with stones, and burned them with fire, after they had stoned them with stones.
PSALM 100 100:1 Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands.
100:2 Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing.
100:3 Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
100:4 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
100:5 For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations
