Gethsemene Rose Garden

God has sacrificed his son for me. The Bible says that as Christ was praying his sweat was as "drops of blood" the monks who tend the monestary their now Cultivate wondrous roses they say sprang from this blood. I wonder ...

Location: United States

I am here. God is doing something strange in my life and I am not sure I am comfortable with it but I am trying to adjust to what he wants ('cause after all he IS God LOL)

I am Jewel

As Jewel, you are slightly stubborn and a tad head-strong, but you are valiant brave and daring. Admired for your free spirit and adventurism, you are the subject of much respect.

So I have been reading Rees Howels' Intercessor It is always interesting to read about the early revivals and some of the Spiritual Battles they went through. As I struggle with letting go of what is being taken from me I am understanding that God is in controll of it all. I am still not liking it (pruning hurts) but I am at least able to get through most of a day without Crying.

Thinking About Brandon

I have had a rough time all my life but I am alive. About 5 years ago I broke my wrist in two places they put a metal plate in it. My dad gave me an electric guitar and said learn to play this it will help. I tried to learn but frankly Electric Guitar is not my style after about 6 months I went to the music store. I figured I would sell it to the owner and use the cash for something I liked. Anyway while I was waiting... I found an Ovation Guitar. I fell in love it was SO easy to play and sounded Beautifull. I traded my electric and ... Well I kept teaching myself how to play. I eventually upgraded to an even nicer Yahmaha Classical and started thinking I was "not to bad" I played Fingerstyle and Classical. Occassionally I would perform music for the church. Brandon was a young guy in our church he had grown up playing guitar and was REAL good. We became real good friends. I learned Guitar from him and he learned about Sharing Christ from me (even though he had grown up in a homeschooled Fundamentalist household and new alot about the Bible, He didn't know alot about the world and how to REACH it) together we started to produce a CD. We had this VERY old 8 track recording system (it recorded on Reel to reel) we would record 4 tracks of guitar (each guitar was micked and plugged in) I played a Classical Arrangement and he did an accoustic arrangement over me as lead. We really were not Great but we had fun and we were getting better. Then he died. My guitar has stood in my living room for two years staring at me. Occasionally I pick it up and play a few minutes but... I miss him alot. I guess I will pick it up again when I am back in the world again. But That is liable to be a long time. Anyway the CD is here half the proceeds go to the Brandon Memorial Servicemans Fund (Brandon was in the Navy) a charity my local church set up after his death. There is some of our guitar work and A silly fun rap song we did using a Sony Playstation to create the background. It is a short CD the other tracks are still on Tape and I dont have a working reel to reel to get the tracks onto CD. (actually at this point I am not even sure if I have the tapes but that is another story)

The Dr. is Back

Dr Who? well if you don't know check out Sci-Fi. (fridays at 8PM I hope)
Dr Who is something I grew up with back in Australia a BBC produced Science Fiction show that doesn't cross the line into gory or TOO scary. (it was made originally in the 50's as an educational show) The BBC website even has a page devoted to Kids who rate the episodes on scariness factor.

About the last post I would delete it (thanx for telling me how) but now there are coments on it. If I delete them Will I lose the comments?

This silly blog wont republish.... Ok after an HOUR of watching the little Triangle it FINALLY republished. SO now I have to update this POST LOL. Is there anyway to DELETE a blog post??? So new to this.

Teens' T-Shirts Make Educators Squirm

Ashli Walker rifled through a rack of designer T-shirts one recent afternoon, pondering which one she should buy and wear the next day to Eleanor Roosevelt High School in Prince George's County. The big black one that read, "TRUST ME..I'M SINGLE"? Or the snug white T-shirt emblazoned with, "I KNOW WHAT BOYS WANT"?

They're blatantly sexual, occasionally clever and often loaded with double meanings, forcing school administrators and other students to read provocations stripped across the chest, such as "yes, but not with u!," "Your Boyfriend Is a Good Kisser" and "two boys for every girl." Such T-shirts also are emblematic of the kind of sleazy-chic culture some teenagers now inhabit, in which status can be defined by images of sexual promiscuity that previous generations might have considered unhip. Continued here...

For Shirts promoting the oppositte of this article check out Gnomes R Us promoting SEXUAL PURITY instead of promiscuity.

Are you Normal?

During a visit to the mental asylum, a visitor asked the Director what the criterion was which defined whether or not a patient should be institutionalized. "Well" said the director,"we fill a bathtub, then offer a teaspoon,a teacup, and a bucket to the patient and ask him or her to empty the bathtub" "Oh,i understand" said the visitor, "A normal person would use the bucket because it's bigger than the spoon or teacup."No" said the director,"A normal person would pull the plug."

Ok So I got really bored today and went Blog Surfing. You know that little "Next Blog" feature. I found some really good ones and some really bad ones surprisingly Nothing offensive and that is I guess a positive. One thing that started to annoy me though was HOW many blogs were NOTHING but GOOGLE ADS. Now I understand that Adsense is the whole reason Google Created Blogspot but still some of these Blogs had GREAT names that others might really like to get but they cannot get them because some Entrepreneaur (siq?) thought to make a few bucks off a free google blog. I wish Google would focus some time and effort into GETTING rid of them to make the Blog Surf Experience a little nicer.

Enough Ranting today. God is SLOWLY trying to reach me with other things I think I am begining to understand about being Happy in ALL circumstances (although I am not to happy at this realization ... I say Ironically)

Virus Alert: THE CURSE

Alert! This is a notice to inform you of THE CURSE. The most devastating virus known to humanity.
Infection status:
You are already infected! (Romans 3:23) (The CURSE was downloaded by Adam and Eve and we all are born into it.)
Every component of your life is affected. We have been brought under the wrath of God (Eph. 2:3); made liable to all miseries in this life, to death itself, and even to the pains of hell forever!
The only remedy is complete forensic reconfiguration of all component parts. This is called Justification. (Eph. 1:7; 2 Cor. 5:21) This is followed by a radical lifetime software purge called Sanctification. (2 Thess. 3:13; Eph. 4:24) The only means of rescue from the power and results of THE CURSE is faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. (Acts 4:12)
You cannot purchase this remedy. It is not so simple. The cost is the eternal wrath of God.
You may acquire justification free of charge. "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved." (Acts 16:31) The price was already paid on the cross of Christ.

"Being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in the hope of the glory of God." (Rom. 5:1,2)

For more information and validation, consult the only User's Manual - The Holy Bible.
Please do not disregard this warning. Do not delay! The CURSE impairs logical functions, input and output, processing and communication, linkup with other systems, and corrupts all disks. The final result will be a total crash. The time of the crash cannot be ascertained, but the fate is worse than mere termination.

The good news is that Christ is available by 24 hour access. No hardware necessary. Simply place all of your trust in Him as the only One Who can give you a home in heaven. You own configurations will not help you, only faith in Christ can!

"For by grace are you saved through faith and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God. Not of works, lest any man should boast." (Eph. 2:8,9)

Keeping it Clean

Two brooms were hanging in the closet and after a while they got to know each other so, well, they decided to get married.

One broom was, of course, the bride broom; the other the groom broom. The bride broom looked very beautiful in her white dress. The groom broom was handsome and suave in his tuxedo. The wedding was lovely.

After the wedding, at the wedding dinner, the bride-broom leaned over and said to the groom-broom, "I think I am going to have a little whisk broom!!!"

"IMPOSSIBLE !!" said the groom broom.

Please put another holiday between Christmas and Easter. There is nothing good in there now.

2. Dear God,
Thank you for the baby brother but what I asked for was a puppy. I never asked for anything before. You can look it up.

3. Dear Mr.God,
I wish you would not make it so easy for people to come apart. I had to have 3 stitches and a shot.

4. God,
I read the bible. What does beget mean? Nobody will tell me.
Love Alison

5. Dear God,
How did you know you were God? Who told you?

6. Dear God,
Is it true my father won't get in Heaven if he uses his golf words in the house?

7. Dear God,
I bet it's very hard for you to love all of everybody in the whole world. There are only 4 people in our family and I can never do it.

8. Dear God,
I like the story about Noah the best of all of them. You really made up some good ones. I like walking on water, too.

9. Dear God,
My Grandpa says you were around when he was a little boy. How far back do you go?
Love, Dennis

10. Dear God,
Do you draw the lines around the countries? If you don't, who does?

11. Dear God,
Did you mean for giraffes to look like that or was it an accident?

12. Dear God,
In bible times, did they really talk that fancy?

13. Dear God,
How come you did all those miracles in the old days and don't do any now?

14. Dear God,
Please send Dennis Clark to a different summer camp this year.

15. Dear God,
Maybe Cain and Abel would not kill each other so much if they each had their own rooms. It works out OK with me and my brother.

16. Dear God,
I keep waiting for spring, but it never did come yet. What's up? Don't forget.

17. Dear God,
My brother told me about how you are born but it just doesn't sound right. What do you say?

18. Dear God,
If you watch in Church on Sunday I will show you my new shoes.

19. Dear God,
Is Reverend Coe a friend of yours, or do you just know him through the business?

20. Dear God,
I do not think anybody could be a better God than you. Well, I just want you to know that. I am not just saying that because you are already God.

21. Dear God,
It is great the way you always get the stars in the right place. Why can't you do that with the moon?

22. Dear God,
I am doing the best I can. Really !!!!

And, saving the best for last .

23. Dear God,
I didn't think orange went with purple until I saw the sunset you made on Tuesday night. That was really cool.

Car Buying for Christians

Some folks like to use the Bible as a basis for making decisions. If you are one of those folks, here are some Bible guidelines for consideration the next time you are shopping for a car...

It seems that our original ancestors tooled around in an old Plymouth because the Bible says that God drove Adam and Eve out of the Garden of Eden in a Fury.

Psalm 83 indicates that the Almighty owned at least two cars -- a Pontiac and a Geo. The passage urges the Lord to "pursue your enemies with your Tempest and terrify them with your Storm."

Perhaps Moses favored Dodge pickup trucks, because his followers are instructed not to go up a mountain "until the Ram's horn sounds a long blast."

No doubt Moses used his truck for work, but when he went cruising, he did so in a flashy sportscar, as evidenced by a Bible passage declaring that "the roar of Moses' Triumph is heard in the hills."

Moses' protégé, Joshua, also drove a Triumph -- but Joshua's Triumph had a hole in its muffler because the Bible says, "Joshua's Triumph was heard throughout the land."

Some scholars insist that Jesus drove a Honda but didn't like to talk about it. As proof, they cite a verse in St. John's gospel where Christ tells the crowd, "For I did not speak of my own Accord..."

Following the Master's lead, the Apostles car-pooled in a Honda, for the Bible says, "The Apostles were in one Accord."

Miss Behavin'

A little girl had misbehaved, and as a punishment, at suppertime, her parents sat her down at a small table by herself in the corner of the dining room.

The rest of the family paid no notice to her, until suddenly they heard her praying over her meal with these words: "I thank You, Dear Lord, for preparing a table before me in the presence of my enemies!"
