My Mama went to heaven in 2008... I still have conversations with her in my head, I catch myself picking up the phone to call and tell her something, I miss our talks, our shopping trips, our giggling and silliness. My Mama was my best friend and I won't ever stop missing her... so I talk to her through this blog... hey it helps me!

Christmas is upon us

It's been awhile... busy!

Hugh and I were watching television last night when a K-Mart commercial came on... advertising Christmas pajamas... it's always the little things that make me miss you the most.

I told him that every Christmas Eve, you always got us new pajamas to wear...

I've been sorting old pictures to make scrapbooks for Jeff, Kevin, and Beth for Christmas and have enjoyed looking at the old black and whites of us when we were growing up... I noticed all the cute pj's over the years... every Christmas morning picture! My favorites still, even after a hundred years (LOL!) of new pajamas, are my apple pajamas from when I was five, I guess, and we lived in that A-frame house in Swannanoa. That was the Christmas I got my new record player and all those yellow 78s... Kevin got a "ride-on" plastic train and I think that was the year Jeff got a BB gun. I loved that house!

I remember riding my bike (with the training wheels) down that curved, concrete driveway and missing the curve and skidding across the concrete on my behind! Ouch!!! I decided then and there... NO MORE training wheels for me, I'd just risk it... we took 'em off and never looked back... a bike was easier to steer without the training wheels.

So many great memories growing up... you were the BEST Mama EVER!

Merry Christmas Mama, and I guess I better get to the store and get my Christmas Eve pajamas!

    Atheists claim there is no God, but do they believe it? Is it possible that atheists simply deny that there is a God? Is it plausible that atheists know there is a God, but because of pride, choose not to acknowledge the existence of God?

    James 2:19 You believe that God is one. You do well; that demons also believe, and shudder.

    Strange that demons believe in God, but atheists claim they do not believe there is a God.

    Mark 1:23-24 Just then there was a man in their synagogue with an unclean spirit; and he cried out, 24 saying, "What business do we have with each other Jesus of Nazareth? Have You come to destroy us? I know who You are---The Holy One of God!"

    Atheists proclaim they do know or believe that there is a God. Unclean spirits not only believe that Jesus is The Holy One of God, but that he has the power to destroy them.

    Psalm 14:1 The fool has said in his heart, "There is no God." They are corrupt, they have committed abominable deeds; There is no one who does good.

    Do some men deny there is a God as a self deception. If there is no God then there is no right from wrong, no good and evil. If there is no God then men can create a moral code that comports with their lifestyle.

    Romans 1:19-20 because that which is know about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them. 20 For since the creation of the world His attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse,

    God has made it evident in every man that He exists. Denying God does not change the fact of the existence of God.

    Psalms 19:1 The heavens are telling of the glory of God; And their expanse is declaring the work of His hands.

    All you have to do to believe there is God, is look up!

    1 Corinthians 20-21 Where is the wise man? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? 21 For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not come to know God, God was well-pleased through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe.

    The foolish wisdom of the world cannot prove that there is no God.

    Through the preaching of the gospel men can believe in God and that Jesus is the Son of God!
