You Win Hebrews 11:1 For 300th Post!

hebrews 11:1 said...
Hey, whoever posts next will make it the 300th post...no wonder I feel like I've spent so much time on here this summer! If each post takes an average of 30 seconds to read...multiply that by 300 (no, just divide 300 in half!); now take into consideration that the average commenter comments on every third post = 100 posts commented on, multiply by an average of 1:30 minutes to comment; and this to your total A; and now you have an average time spent on Pals since it opened...all those statistics...can you tell I've been studying Marketing?! Oh, and I love mental math. Let's see who gets the correct answer WITHOUT a calculator ;) I'll give a prize...send me your name and telehone number, and signature, answer a skill testing question...and I'll say a special prayer for you. Oh, I forgot, we don't need to do all that on Pals...we just post and pray, right?! Ah, this Pal is just being silly, eh? Always wished I had a sense of humor....

My aren't you the tricky little person!!..from Mrs. Shirkie

Oh, Mrs. Shirkie!

The thought flashed across my mind as my brother read Bible...okay, that was a confession, I did have a verse to repeat aftewards, though...and I dismissed it with, "Nah, that would be so embaressing." ThenI go on here, and here I am and yes, it is embaressing, but at least I know I am loved, aren't I? :) I'll be checking in from time to time this evening as I put together a website for my parents...it's just a side thing we do that we are getting a website for. Sorry I can't tell you anymore. Anyway, they're having a well-deserved break this evening- going out for dinner! That's why my younger brother filled in and read the Bible, and we all have to pay close attention, because we have to repeat a line, or 2, or 3, afterwards. One child didn't have anything to say this evening, and one had hardly anything...and neither were me, so don't worry.

God bless you,

Okay, this is what I WOULD LIKE posted, as it's been on my heart since reading Passing-thru's post on Oasis...This is a song I learned in Texas, and I guess you can say he third verse is like Pals, too....It's called "Oasis of Love"...

I came to this place from a dry, thirsty land
A drifter at heart, with no definite plan
But words from a song from a small Jesus band
Turned one wasted life all around

Chorus:
I found an oasis of love
Where the pastures are green are round
A new life is mine with peace from above
I found an oasis of love

I sing to my King, praise and thank Him again
Because of His love a loser can win
Hey, you from the desert of life, Come on in
And drink from the cup of a friend.

There’s food for the hungry, joy for the sad
A home for the homeless: kids, moms, and dads
It may not appeal your exact ideal,
But it’s all that you need, and it’s for real!


God bless,
Lil Pilgrim Pal

GOOD STUFF HEB 11:1 - AGAIN , I find U and your family "unique"
plus U make my head hurt with that mental math stuff , OUCH --- but U make my heart take hope that there are Christians that read the Word and have parents that obviously "follow" HARD AFTER HIM

Sorry, Passing-thru, if I gave you a head-ache! :)
Yes, we get that comment quite often, but I clearly remember when I was young and we went to a Christian farming community...and they raised their children SO well, I am still impressed. They had problems, of course, just like any family...my best friend's older sister and friend rebelled and left the community and married. Another sister moved to NY out of rebellion...it was heartbreaking to all who knew the family. Anyway, the families really impressed my parents, and they learned a lot of prinicples there that they still apply. It was a rather big change it our life at that time, but my youngest sister was born into this newer way that they raised us up, and she's turning out great...compared to the rebel I was at her age...ouch, I was real bad.
