God's Roadmap

Now may the Lord Jesus Christ and our Father God, who loved us and in his wonderful grace gave us eternal comfort and a beautiful hope that cannot fail, encourage your hearts and inspire you with strength to always do and speak what is good and beautiful in his eyes (2 Thessalonians 2:16-17 TPT).

What Do You Say About Love?

This past week we celebrated Valentine's Day and we were inundated with chocolate, flowers, and cards in stores, workplaces, and schools. All thoughts turn to love during this time and florists have their busiest time of the year. But if your flowers have faded and your candy is gone, why not ponder some quotes from famous people about love?

"My most brilliant achievement was my ability to persuade my wife to marry me."
Winston Churchill

"Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is someone who will ride with you on the bus when the limo breaks down." Oprah Winfrey

"No matter how love-sick a woman is, she shouldn't take the first pill that comes along."
Dr. Joyce Brothers

"Gravitation cannot be held responsible for people falling in love."
Albert Einstein

"Nothing takes the taste out of peanut butter quite like unrequited love."
Charlie Brown

"An archeologist is the best husband a woman can have, the older she gets the more interested he is in her."
Agatha Christie

And from a not-so-famous person, but my favorite man of all, Ken Latta, my hubby.
"I can't not love you."

No matter what your view of love is, humorous or thought-provoking, no one says it any better than the Apostle John, "In this is love, not that we loved God, but the He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another." (I John 4:10-11).

Enjoy your flowers, chocolate, and cards. But most of all enjoy the love God has put into your life.

What is your favorite love quote and why?

How Old Are Dinosaurs?

One of the places we visited last week in Colorado was the Dinosaur Resource Center in Manitou Springs. It is filled with fossils and artifacts from all over North America.

It is always fun to visit these sites and see the many wonders from the earth. The problem is when unbelieving scientists try to pass their theories off as truth when they have no evidence to support any of them. This causes confusion for many people because those of us who believe the Bible know God created the earth and all it contains in six days. The bones in the earth cannot lie. They were here. But when?

Are the dinosaurs really millions of years old?

The following video explains very simply how the truth of the Bible and the archeological facts agree. It is lengthy, but if you are interested in connecting the dots and having ammunition for the next evolutionist you encounter, it is worth watching.

Now, what about you? What do you think?
