these are about my youngest son:


FRIDAY, JANUARY 8, 2010
1 year ago today.



First let me just say HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAD, I LOVE YOU!

It is funny, the days that stay burned in your memory. I can't tell you what day my graduation was or the day that I bought my house. I can vividly remember the days I found out I was pregnant and the day that my husband swept me off my feet.

One day that is burned in my memory until I die is January 8th, 2009. On that day not only did I find out that my youngest was a bouncing baby boy, but I found out that he had Spina Bifida, hydrocephalus, and possible Arnold Chiari II. Now God has worked in my life many many ways, but on this day, laying in a cold room, looking at my baby boy on a huge flat screen TV, God walked in and took my hand. The Doctor entered the room again, and told us she couldn't give us a prognosis and was sending us to a pediatric Nuero surgeon. She gave me a grim outlook. She began to offer abortion, I declined before she could even finish. She offered amnio, I again, declined. My baby boy was going to be just fine.

I am proud to say that on May 11th I gave birth to a gorgeous baby boy. He is now almost 8 months old and after 2 surgeries and a lot of TLC and even more Prayer he is doing wonderful and has exceeded all of the Doctors expectations. Believe in the power of prayer friends, it is amazing!

There are many times in our lives where we talk to God, but only when we need him. 4 years ago, that was me. Then things happen in life and God pushes you to trust him. It is strange how the easy way out most time is the wrong way. Being the bigger person, taking the high road, doing what is right, is usually the hardest thing to do. I cannot tell you the relief that you feel, when you are laying in a floor crying not knowing what to do and then you cry out loud, LORD I GIVE IT TO YOU, IT IS IN YOUR HANDS, DO WITH ME WHAT YOU WILL. I have been there, many, many times, and sometimes it doesn't work how you plan, because it isn't what we want...it is Gods will. I can promise you what ever God brings you to, he will bring you through.

I try so hard to explain the way I feel knowing that God is in my life, and it is something that is inexplicable, something you have to feel for yourself.

With all of that being said, I hope none of you have to experience a time so hard as I did, but I urge you, if you don't know the Lord, there is no better time than now to find him....


another one:

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.Philippians 4:13
It's so funny how you can go 30 years and a bible verse always mean the same thing, then one day out of the blue that verse has a whole new meaning to you.
I often referred myself to that verse (Philippians 4:13) when I was having a struggle through the day, month, year or even in life, I found mental strength in it. On January 8th, 2009 I found myself repeating that verse over and over when the Doctor told my that my son would be born with Spina Bifida and hydrocephalus that he may never be able to walk or have a "normal" life. Then again on May 11th 2009 as I struggled to walk down 2 halls after a c-section to see my helpless baby boy in the NICU, then again when I got to go home and he didn't and for the almost month that he stayed there. All those times I was looking to that verse for mental strength to get me through these things. Yesterday something amazing happened. Gavin WALKED, he just let go and WALKED. He had started doing it around lunch time and everytime it was unexpected and I was very unprepared to catch it on video then finally just after supper he was off again WALKING, BAREFOOT! Jason caught it on video and of course the video went viral through my family and friends. One person made me stop and think, a friend of my Mother said This gives special meaning to the words, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." a light bulb went off, chills ran up my spine and all of a sudden it had all new meaning to me. Physical strength.

I just want to stand on a Mountain top and scream at the top of my lungs, PRAISE JESUS!

I am so very proud of all my Children, they are each very amazing and I have been so very blessed to be able to be their Mother.

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.Philippians 4:13
 Quoting: Oldmotherhubbard


That made me cry, what a wonderful miracle you had, do you think through faith it happened, or do we just not know? So happy for your baby!

Re: Please write your story of how you were saved?
You seem genuine OP, so I will take the time to tell you my story. I was raised Catholic, but by the time I was a teenager I had become an atheist. Then suddenly, in January 2002 I had an experience which changed my life forever. Something humanoid, but what I perceived to be much taller than a human walked out of the woods on a pitch black night at 4:21am. This led me to research many thousands of hours on the internet about everything from 911 to aliens, sasquatch, etc. When I learned, and accepted the truth, that a Luciferian secret society runs the whole, I was then born again. I don't belong to a church or anything like that, I just talk to god whenever I want on a spirit level. I would have to credit "Insert name of person that I can't name here? wtf GLP, lol sad, first name starts with a, last name starts with j" for helping me become born again back in 2002.

I wish you well on your quest OP.

Re: Please write your story of how you were saved?
Reading your Bible is a step in the right direction. I would suggest you start with the New Testament book of John, then go onto the epistles (or letters) that come after the book of Acts.

Becoming "saved" is a process that starts with a seeking and willing heart. Talking to a Bible believing pastor and seeking a Bible believing church is important, too. Ones that believe the entire Bible.

Personally, I am a Seventh-Day Adventist, and have found this church to teach all of God's message: salvation by grace alone, and following current events in the light of Bible prophecy.

I searched for a long time, asking God to show me His message. He saved me when I asked Him into my life, repented of my sins, and determined to serve Him always. He has given me a peace that passes understanding, even though I have many difficult issues to deal with.

I pray that you will find Him, friend. God bless you...

SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 28, 2010
I am going to bloom where I am planted.
For those of you that know me, you know I went through a dramatic change about probably 8 years ago then again about 4 years ago. I used to be very abrasive, would fight with the wall, spoke my mind and was very angry. I used to let people get me so upset that I literally couldn't sleep they made me so mad. The first revelation for me was when I finally decided to let this one particular person just hate me and I would just smile and take the high road, it worked! Eventually I decided to be the bigger person all the time. Sometimes people think the High road is the cowards way out, they wish I would stand up for myself.

Around 3 1/2 years ago I had another challenge this would be the challenge that would change the way I viewed life and the way I lived forever. I prayed hard about it, I finally found myself on my knees screaming to God, It is in your hands, what ever your will I will accept it. The outcome was not the one I wanted nor the one any of us expected but when I got on my knees and released all of it to God I MEANT it (I mean TRULY MEANT it) and I have chosen to accept it. I never really questioned why things happened the way they did, I just accepted that they happened and went on with life, was it hard abso-freaking-lutley, is it still hard, yep everyday. I think (I say think because I won't know until I can stand before him and ask) that God challenged me that day I dropped to my knees, I think he wanted to see if I really was at that place in my faith that I was. I passed that challenge, which has brought on numerous new challenges in my opinion.

I watched a sermon this morning on TV, he talked about blooming where you are planted how even though we may hate our life, house, job, spouse whatever the case is, that is where God put us and until we grin and go through life "blooming" we can't move on to the next challenge. No matter what you go through, no matter why you are where you are there is a divine reason for it and until you finish that course you cannot move on to the next. It made a lot more sense when he preached the sermon, I am far from a preacher.


so here is a small clip from his sermon this morning

So many people live life waiting for something to change before they will be happy and satisfied. They think, "If I could just get out of this small house…" "If I could just get a better job…" "If I could just find new friends…" Did you know that where you are in life is no accident to God? Psalm 37 says, "The steps of a good person are ordered by the Lord." We all have times and situations where we're not ideally where we would like to be, but take heart; God is ordering your steps for good. If you will trust God with all aspects of your life, stay in faith, and be all that God has created you to be right now, He will get you w"here you need to be. You'll not only live your life happy and enjoy your life more, but you'll be sowing a seed for God to take you where He wants you to go.


Sometimes you listen to a sermon and take absolutely nothing from it, then there are those sermons that really speak to you, that you can relate to. This was one of those for me. It kinda validated that I was doing the right thing by not running that lady over in Walmart that almost knocked me down trying to get the last bag of flour, or the smile I gave to the woman that just butted in front of me in line, I am not a push over, I am just blooming.


ok, i won't blow up the thread any more :)

I feel I have tried so many times in my ignorant ways to find him, maybe I haven't been heartless or unselfish, maybe that is my mistake! I have cried, been down on my knees, but maybe for selfish reasons...Thank you, I will try harder to take the high road!

I was drinking in a bar and got into an argument with a friend. I left the bar, and walked home. A neighbor saw me crying and asked what was wrong.

I told her, and she said, "That is just the devil, and we can take care of him right now!"

She took my hands and prayed, then led me in the sinner's prayer.

I went home and went to bed, and when I woke up, something was different. I went and asked her what happened last night. She said, "You asked Jesus to come into your heart."

Re: Please write your story of how you were saved?
I was 8 years old, and I grew up going to the Christian churches. We were at a Baptist church at that time in my life. I remember a family friend was visiting with her kids. I think I had been hearing about salvation. So, I decided I wanted to pray the prayer and have her help me with it. So she came in my room when I was going to bed, and I prayed to repent of my sins and give my life to Christ. I asked him to forgive me and be my savior. I was so excited after that, I went to school and told my little Chinese friend about it. We lived in San Francisco and there was a very diverse culture, it was like the United Nations, and I was often the only white kid, maybe one or two others around. Certainly did not grow up with racism. Anyway, I could not wait to tell Mona, and so she wanted to say the prayer, too. She was so cute, with her little Chinese-girl hair cut and her red satin Chinese jacket she wore, and a big grin. She said the prayer, and she loved the way she felt so much when Christ came into her heart, she kept asking to do it again and again! Too funny. I always wonder what ever happened to her, and pray she is still aware of God in her life since that day.

The thing that stands in the way the most is a person's pride. People want to earn their salvation, or think they are good enough to have their good works suffice, or they don't want to trust in what they cannot see, or they are jaded by life experiences. That is the parable of the sower, where some of the seed fell on rocks, some the birds ate up, some grew up and the sun withered it, then other fell on good soil. If the soil is ready (as your heart is now), then the seed will take root, and grow something beautiful and new in your life. The more you give to God of yourself, the more he will give back to you. It's like when they do that show on TV, Pimp My Ride (haha) and they give them their old clunker, and it gets made-over to be something new with all the extras. I find that when I trust something to God in my life, he can take it way further and use it in much more amazing ways than I ever even could have thought of. The word says today, if you hear his voice, do not turn away as they did in the desert (the Israelites/Moses) who ended up wandering for 40 years and never saw the promised land. God has promises for those who put their trust in him, and he is telling us to take hold of them while we can.

NOPE no sweet from me, just the facts. If this was your first human life and you born with a NORMAL mind, you got "saved" by the coming of your Father Fragment when you made and carried out your first moral choice, which on this planet is around the age of 5 on average. If you are reincarnating then it should be OBVIOUS you got saved in a previous life time.

I will not stand for IGNORANCE and play games roun thi. JESUS does not SAVE YOU. YOU SAVE YOU, and thus receive the FREE GIFT OF SALVATION from the Father when piece of his mind comes to indwell your mind. By the end of your first life you must make the choice to continue the eternal life. it is your choice.

Re: Please write your story of how you were saved?
I was saved when I figured out that religion was a sham, that it was a system for control.

I was saved when I embraced Unconditional LOVE and dropped the B.S. written by mankind.

I was saved when I took responsibility for my own soul as opposed to relying on the promises of a church, or the idea that Jesus was going to do all the work for me...because the reality is...it doesn't work that way.

You don't just sit on a drumset and ask Jesus to make you a professional grade drummer and it happens...no more than you can ask Jesus to save your soul if you haven't lived a proper life. And if YOU DID live a proper life and vibrate to the frequency of LOVE, more than likely, you wouldn't have needed his help in the first place.

SO...THAT'S MY STORY of being saved.

Re: Please write your story of how you were saved?
Through love. I was on drugs not heavy but getting to the point where I was borderline. I also was struggling with a 2 year depression, and felt there was no way out, and this was how I supposed to be. Well my alleged best friend decided one day to rat out on me, and of course I was flaming mad, I got sent to one of my moms friends house, where there was a boy,I lived there for about 1 month and me and this boy grew close. He told me all his darkest secrets and yesterday I finally told him mine. He showed me Christ wasn't as uncool as I thought it was, and that this depression state isn't how I'm supposed to be. I showed him you can come over any temptation through Jesus.

We having been dating for 2 months, and we both pretty much saved each other asses and led each other to the lord.
Just around and I'll be there, I'm moving into your atmosphere.

Romans 8:39 Any other living thing cannot keep us away from the love of God which is ours through Christ Jesus our Lord.

Romans 8:15
For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship. And by him we cry, ""Abba," Father."

Now accept the one who is weak in faith, but not for the purpose of passing judgment on his opinions. –Romans 14:1

Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.

People that don't believe in the bible, please be kind, just for today, I'm hurting and want to hear how others came to find Jesus in their hearts! Is it really as simple as some say, or does it take a lot of learning and ????? Thank you in advance!
I love the "bible tards" as GLP calls them, do you have verses you can explain, or just a miracle that made you believe?

Gurl its hard, you gotta give your life to him. Submit eveything, its easier said then done. You have to give him complete control. He is a beautiful thing to fill your heart with. Just run into his arms, say what you feel, don't hold back, don't be embrassed. Jesus is accpeting, he understands all your needs, he wants you to come to him with all of them. No matter how stupid they may sound.
Only through Jesus can you receive the father and the holy ghost. Jesus is like a gateway to God.

Romans 8:39 Any other living thing cannot keep us away from the love of God which is ours through Christ Jesus our Lord.

Romans 8:15
For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship. And by him we cry, ""Abba," Father."

Now accept the one who is weak in faith, but not for the purpose of passing judgment on his opinions. –Romans 14:1

Hebrews 11:1
Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.

Re: Please write your story of how you were saved?
I was saved when I figured out that religion was a sham, that it was a system for control.

I was saved when I embraced Unconditional LOVE and dropped the B.S. written by mankind.

I was saved when I took responsibility for my own soul as opposed to relying on the promises of a church, or the idea that Jesus was going to do all the work for me...because the reality is...it doesn't work that way.

You don't just sit on a drumset and ask Jesus to make you a professional grade drummer and it happens...no more than you can ask Jesus to save your soul if you haven't lived a proper life. And if YOU DID live a proper life and vibrate to the frequency of LOVE, more than likely, you wouldn't have needed his help in the first place.

SO...THAT'S MY STORY of being saved.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 5562520


There are somethings out of our control, our world, look around, I need someone greater in my life than me, I can't control it all. I feel it, I just can't find it. I am not worthy, and I am not worthy of judging others, I am lost and scared!

Re: Please write your story of how you were saved?
Through love. I was on drugs not heavy but getting to the point where I was borderline. I also was struggling with a 2 year depression, and felt there was no way out, and this was how I supposed to be. Well my alleged best friend decided one day to rat out on me, and of course I was flaming mad, I got sent to one of my moms friends house, where there was a boy,I lived there for about 1 month and me and this boy grew close. He told me all his darkest secrets and yesterday I finally told him mine. He showed me Christ wasn't as uncool as I thought it was, and that this depression state isn't how I'm supposed to be. I showed him you can come over any temptation through Jesus.

We having been dating for 2 months, and we both pretty much saved each other asses and led each other to the lord.

How do I do that?
 Quoting: closing eyes


Look in Romans 3 24-26 and you will see that all you need to do is accept Jesus Christ as your saviour through His blood shed for us and you will be forgiven all. The true Word of God is in the King James Bible 1611 and can be downloaded free in pdf here [link to www.bibleprotector.com]

Download it and follow along with the bible the lessons on salvation from the web page above. You will find the peace and forgiveness you seek.

Not to harp on technicalities but nothing can separate you from God once you accept Jesus Christ as your saviour;

Romans 3
23For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

24Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:

25Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;
