We all want to believe that nothing catastrophic will happen to our family and that we'll always be able to observe any type of disaster from a safe distance - hopefully from the television or a computer - but this obviously won't be true for everyone and it just makes good sense to be prepared. Not being so will add significantly to the trauma of an already terrible experience.

Last week we started looking at the topic, "how to walk with God," we now continue those thoughts. God does not ask us to do the things He asked the Patriarchs to do, nor the things that were required of those under the Law of Moses. We are told to do the things that are right or necessary for us to be saved. All three time periods mesh together (Gal. 3:16 – 29).
In the last month or so we have received quite a bit of rainfall; raining almost every day this week alone. Not long ago it was reported that we were several inches below normal for the year and believe it or not some local areas still are a little behind. (Definitely not my area.) As I listen to others talk, it seems that they understand that we need rain but they only want it when it will be convenient to their schedule.

I'm finding it hard not to compare my child to others her age. Reese is healthy, communicative, active and right where she needs to be developmentally. At her 1-year checkup, our pediatrician was pleased with her growth and progress. He assured me she is hitting all of her milestones right on target. That news was music to my ears because, just like every parent on the planet, all I want is for my little girl to live a long, healthy, happy life.

When man was created and placed in the Garden of Eden, God's plan of creation was completed. Man giving in to Satan turned this scene into a wicked and ugly one.
I love that commercial for the cellphone company in which the guy is hanging out with the children and asking them questions like, "Is it better to be slow or fast?" or "Is it better having less or more?" The kids give answers that are precious and usually spin into extreme jibber-jabber.
