Super Moms

      Christian moms have super powers, and never get the respect they deserve. Their kids have heroes like Iron Man or Captain America, but the real super heroes are moms. They are SUPER MOMS !!!! Moms chase demons out of closets and from under beds, tend wounds, and turn tears into giggles. And at the end of the day they still have smiles on their faces when the children get home from school and dad gets home from work.

      Christian moms are the only ones that can cook breakfast and get the kids off to school on time,  work a full time job, put the trash out that dad forgot, do the laundry, cook dinner, clean the house, help the kids with home work, and still find the time to spend with God. The Holy Spirit gives moms the power to do things dads can't do. When a child asks dad for permission to do something, dad says go ask your mother. The Holy Spirit gives mom the power to know when their children are lying, and to know how to ask them questions to get the answers they want. You can truly see the fruit of the spirit in their lives. (Galatians 5:22-33) But the Fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, and self control.

       Christian moms have been given other gifts of the Holy Spirit as well. (1 Corinthians 12:8-10) -Wisdom, knowledge, faith, healing, even interpretation of tongues. You want to know what the baby is saying? Ask mom, dad would have no idea. Moms love their children like God loves, with agape love, love that is unconditional. All mothers are special, but Christian moms have that relationship with the Lord to lean on. They are SUPER MOMS !!!! So let us honor our mothers and always give them the respect they deserve. Moms are a gift from God and we need to cherish them as such. Amen.......

Nature is the proof of God's existence

      I was up on the roof of the building at work at with the HVAC guy when we turned and saw a double rainbow going across the sky. Both were so bright and clear the HVAC guy turns to me and says, "Who says there's no God?" The beauty of the whole thing was overwhelming, and we both stared at it awestruck for a few minutes.

      It's true we can't see God, but we see the proof of His existence through His creations. We can't see the wind, but we feel it on our faces, and see the leafs on the trees move when it blows. We can't see the air, but we feel it fill our lungs when we breathe. We see the billions of stars shimmer on a clear summer night, we see the sun and the moon make their circle. My family camps and hunts frequently and when I look at a tree or a plant I see beauty from every angle, no matter which way I look at it. Everyone of God's creations fit together perfectly. The sun and the moon rotate perfectly everyday, water provides for plants, and beast alike, it provides for the necessities of life. It feeds the crops, and allows the earth to give up it's fruits.

     Look at the birds, listen to their songs thanking God for another glorious day. Watch them care for, protect, and play with each other. Look at how God has made sure they are fed, and clothed in the beautiful colors that God has given them. Think about the flowers, they are beautiful, delicate, and full of splendor. Think about that mountain range, tough, tall, permanent, and hard. What about rivers, lakes, or oceans?

     Nature was God's first missionary. Where there is no bible, there are sparkling stars, where there are no preachers, there are spring days. If a person sees nothing but nature, then nature is enough to show something about God. Everyone of us should take the time to go outside and contemplate God's Creation. The wonders we see around us are just a taste of how glorious God really is.
