"Yes, we will miss him, yet we will always know that death did not have victory over him, for he had been snatched from the very gates of hell and brought into the family of God, transferred from darkness unto light, his eternal destiny changed from an everlasting Hell to the joy of being in the ranks of those who will spend eternity worshiping Jesus. For this reason, he knows, and we can repeat with the apostle Paul "Death has been swallowed up in victory." "Where, O death, is your victory, Where, O death is your sting?" (I Corinthians 15:54,55)" - From my Dad's blog.

My sister recently posted about the Thief In The Night movie that my parents use to show as an evangelism tool many years ago. The movie brings back lots of special memories for me because it was after watching that movie that I accepted the Lord as my personal Lord and Savior. More on that in a future post but I wanted to share the theme song as my TSMSS submission.
Are you ready for Christ's return? If not, don't wait another day for we do not know when He is returning.
1 Thessalonians 5: 1-3
Now, brothers, about times and dates we do not need to write to you, for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. While people are saying, "Peace and safety," destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.

When I was a kid, my mom liked to make breakfast food for dinner every now and then. And I remember one night in particular when she had made breakfast after a long, hard day at work.
On that evening so long ago, my mom placed a plate of eggs, sausage and extremely burned biscuits in front of my dad. I remember waiting to see if anyone noticed! Yet all my dad did was reach for his biscuit, smile at my mom and ask me how my day was at school.
I don't remember what I told him that night, but I do remember watching him smear butter and jelly on that biscuit and eat every bite!
When I got up from the table that evening, I remember hearing my mom apologize to my dad for burning the biscuits. And I'll never forget what he said: "Honey, I love burned biscuits."
Later that night, I went to kiss Daddy good night and I asked him if he really liked his biscuits burned. He wrapped me in his arms and said, "Your Momma put in a hard day at work today and she's real tired. And besides, a little burnt biscuit never hurt anyone!"
Life is full of imperfect things and imperfect people. I'm not the best at hardly anything, and I forget birthdays and anniversaries just like everyone else. But what I've learned over the years is that learning to accept each others faults and choosing to celebrate each others differences is one of the most important keys to creating a healthy, growing, and lasting relationship.
So we should learn to take the good, the bad, and the ugly parts of your life and lay them at the feet of God. Because in the end, He's the only One who will be able to give you a relationship where a burnt biscuit isn't a deal-breaker!
We could extend this to any relationship. In fact, understanding is the base of any relationship, be it a husband-wife or parent-child, sibling, or friendship!
"Don't put the key to your happiness in someone else's pocket. Keep it in your own."
God Bless You, now, and always.

This month however is going to be a HUGE month for me in regards to decluttering the house. The next two weekends I am having a garage sale. I have gone through my books, my clothes, my craft room, my kitchen cabinets and this week I hope to go through some things in the basement.
Please pray for good weather, lots of customers and many, many sales! I hope next month to post that I have met my goal of decluttering 730 items :-)
