A Sad Day

Yesterday (Feb. 18) I presented our Botswana and Namibia pictures to a group of girls at our former church.

When I arrived home my husband said that I needed to call my sister in California.  She had very sad news to share with me.  Her 50 year old, very in shape brother-in-law had died while working out at a gym.  Just collapsed and he was dead.  He leaves a wife, son who is 19 and a 15 year old daughter.  He was in excellent health as far as everyone knew.  So this has come as a complete shock to the entire family.  

There will be tests done to see what caused his death.  

This is a very good example of why husbands AND wives need to know what is going on financially in the household.  Every morning when you kiss your spouse good-bye you don't know if it might be the last time you see them.

My condolences to the family.  I pray that God will be their comfort.

Not Much

Life is going on and on here in Hermiston. Nothing unusual happening. Still working at UHS Library, and may be for awhile longer. Good thing I like it.

You know, I'm kinda tired of so much being blamed on us Conservative Christians. It's like we are a bunch of people who want to kill sick people if we aren't for Universal Healthcare. Or people think we hate homosexuals......we DON'T!!

A Christian is a person who has accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Savior. Having done this does NOT make us perfect and we should never be self-righteous. The Bible says that our righteousness is as filthy rags. Our righteousness only comes through Jesus Christ.

When a person becomes a Christian your attitude should be changed because Jesus has change your heart. We shouldn't be lying or stealing or swearing. We should be treating people kindly, we should be paying our bills, we should be praying for our elected officials. We should be telling people about Jesus.....and that is what I'm doing right now. I'm telling you about Jesus.
