ABC Game

Adam was the first of man
Blood was shed from Jesus' hand
Christ was born so that we could live
Discipline in the walk His blessings to give
Everlasting life He promised to thee
Faith can move mountains, watch them flee
Give your time to Him and you can have it all
Honor His word, your faith will grow tall
Include the lost into your prayers
Jesus is coming soon, it's time to prepare
Kingdom thinking is what we are suppose to do
Living in the heavenly realm, each day is made new
Manna will pour down from Heaven
No one is left behind who get rids of the bad leaven
Oh happy day is the song that we sing
Pharoah has fallen, he is no longer king
Quench your thirst for God's holy word
Remember that living for the world is just simply absurd
Stewardship is honoring God as well
Tithing pleases Him greatly I'm sure you can tell
Under the stripes on His back we are healed
Witnessing to strangers, how great does that feel
Victory was paid on Calvary
X-ray vision won't make you see
Yahweh paved the way for us to have freedom at last
Zeal for the One who died for my sins is fun, and now my life's a blast, and now this game is done. . . or has it just begun. . .

"There are two kinds of people in this world, those who are saved and those who are not saved. . . which one are you?" ---Joshua Mills---

If you are searching for something, choose life, choose Christ!!!

Fellow Christians and myself are standing by for any questions you might have!!!

Don't wait until it's too late. . . to find. . . Jesus

Stayed tuned next week for another exciting blog from Erik's Acting Corner!!!!

The time is almost near
And I still haven't heard from you dear
Where could you be?
Come out and see your daddy
I think about you being here all of the time
Having you in my arms would be sublime
I know what you look like and you're not even here
Blonde hair, blue eyes with beautiful lashes that bring me to tears
I wonder why
You're being so shy?
It's time to arrive and be so alive
It's ok Khloe, momy and daddy will be here to hold your hand
As you get older we will make great big castles in the sand
First day of school, you don't want to be late
We have to wear our favorite ribbons, bows, and that new dress will be great
Mommy and I will help you with your school work too
And especially mommy can help you with your 2 times 2
When you get older and that boy asks you to dance
Don't worry Khloe, if he treats you well, I'll give him a chance
And hopefully this boy will turn into a man
One day this man will ask for your hand
Daddy gets the first dance after I walk you down the aisle
And don't play a long song like mommy and make your man stand for awhile.
When its all said and done and you say "I do"
Just remember that mommy and daddy our so proud of you
And after you take your husband's hand
You too soon will be making sand castles in the sand!!!
Love Always is all that I know how to say
Khloe my dear you have come a long way
And when mommy and daddy pray
We thank God for you our blessing every single day!!

"I can do all things through Christ which gives me strength" Phillipians 4:13

Free at Last

When white turns to red
The message was said
In that moment we knew
Our love for You grew
Shackels of bondage and restraint
Will never ever taint
The wonderous cause
Let's take a moment to pause
We open up our hearts and let compassion in
When You freed us from our sin
It's amazing to think of what this might have cost
So that our lives would not be lost
I well up with tears and emotion that cannot be surpressed
No fear, condemnation, or reason to be depressed
Although the road to righteousness is not paved without a few bumps along the way
I'm encouraged every single day
To be resurrected by Your grace and mercy forever be
To be happy, encouraged, and misery free
What a state of being to be encompassed in
To know that You are guiding our paths from within
Free from sin
Free to begin
A life of restoration and restitution
A life of clarity, resolve, and absolution
It makes me rejoice for being alive
Your only begotten Son. . . sent to revive
A wonderous plan not done in vain
A marvelous opportunity to lay down all of our pain
As Your Son did for us
Simply marvelous
Words can not express the gratitude that I feel
To live in the world and belong to the Kingdom that is so real
Thank You Lord for giving to me
A captivating life and setting me free!!!

Before and After: the Sequel


I don't know how many of you watch NBC's "The Biggest Loser". . . but I do!!! About two years ago, I lost my dad to a massive heart attack. For all of my life, my dad had been morbidly obese. I too have had my battles with weight loss, and I want to make a difference!! It's time to get up off the couch and get healthy. What inspired such a sudden change? Why now after two years? Well. . . back to the show! There are these two contestants this season that are a father and son couple. Ron is the father and Mike is Ron's son. Mike also has a younger brother named Max who is also Morbidly obese. When they started the show, they collectively weighed a whopping 800 plus pounds!! That's kind of strange because at one time, my dad and I weighed collectively around 800 pounds together!! Now, after 18 weeks they have lost over 300 pounds as a team. . . so after crying about some memories of me and my dad, and seeing this once over 800 pound father and son team complete a 26 mile marathon. . . I thought. . . why not me? What have I been waiting for? I had the victory once before, what has got in my way? Pride. . . It's the only answer that seems to make sense! So now. . . what? Erik begins the transformation again. . . and my blog will be logging the journey. See first hand what I eat and how much I exercise. Maybe only one person will read this blog, but if that one person changes the lives of thousands. . . well. . . I guess the person of this one person is. . . done!!
