Joyce HendricksGreat object lesson, Travis, thanks for sharing it. Rick and I were huddled in the hallway doing just what Obie was doing, looking into the face of our Father and asking for His protection as we listened to trees falling all around us. Once it was light enough to see the damage done with trees all around our house down, we knew that He indeed had watched over His children and kept us safe. Praising Him in the storm! What a mighty God we serve!

A. "Marriage by the Book" was huge for our family. Just a great reminder of how I was supposed to love my bride.
B. I think we need to deal with some of the misconceptions of a church.

I'm planning on picking back up my Scripture memory plan. I've gotten a tad slack in that area. There's nothing like hiding God's Word in your heart.

One challenge/opportunity of North Side in the near future is the need to make room in the 11:15 service. To grow the 9:45 service, we are going to have additional children's programming (second Epic, second Little Church, etc.). To have additional children's programming, we are going to have to get some more volunteers.

Great thoughts, Greg. What I experienced last night in C-Groups was pretty incredible. We talked about what we would do if we only had one week until Jesus came back. Then we went out to act like it was.

I think another important thing is that we don't ease people into thinking we will never have to experiencing any type of persecution as Christians. 2 Tim 3:12 promises it. Even if we are raptured, we should not expect smooth sailing through every trial in this life.

Most important thing, like you said: get in the Word. Matthew 24 opened our groups' eyes yesterday night. It spells it out from the mouth of Jesus!

Some great comments here.

One of God's Children, thank you for your story - that was so encouraging to hear. I praise God for someone loving you and you receiving that love so well.

IbnZayd, thanks for your comments too. You obviously have thought a lot this process. I look forward to reading your links. Initially, I feel like you have unfairly stereotyped me into why I am adopting. I do not think Ethiopians or hungry or poor children have a life that is not "valid." I think children without parents are at a disadvantage.

I have heard some talk about Westerners stealing children away, but most of those people do not realize that there are NOT 143 million native prospective adoptive parents waiting in line, if we don't adopt this child, no one will.

I realize this is not the best case scenario, the best case would be for the biological parents to care for this child, but circumstances have not allowed that to happen.

I am not a parent who will negate that child's birth country or heritage, you should get to know me before making a statement like that. I know that Americans have a bad reputation by trying to fix things in this world, but this is not the case. I'm a Christian who happens to live in America, and I shouldn't be stereotyped for where I live and neither should this child.
