Connections

Connections – Platypi

Connections are… connections. Okay, I’m sure you figured out that much. Connections are connections between two (or more) things, normally connected only by a word, or two.

Platypus #1

One of my very close friends has recently taken to drawing platypi in her notebook. 😉 Just thought I’d say that… and, yes, they are adorable.

Platypus #2

I believe I have mentione our Bible Trivia Challenge Calender, but, as of yet, I don’t think I’ve mentioned our Funny Church Signs Calender. Or our You Might Be A Redneck If… Calender. But we’ll save that last one’s true introduction for another time. A quote from our Funny Church Signs Calender reads:

On the sixth day, God created the platypus. And God said, “Let’s see the evolutionists try to figure this one out.”

Connections – Houses

Let’s do some role-playing.

Say you’re looking for a new house. Which of these would you choose?

I hope everyone said the mansion. If not… never mind.

Heaven is like the mansion. Hell is like the burning house.

Think about all the people who aren’t believers out there. As a believer, you are guaranteed to go to heaven, to live in that awesome mansion that Jesus is preparing for you. Non-believers, on the other hand, are going to spend forever in that burning house. Unless someone reaches out to them and introduces them to Jesus.

That someone could be you.

Connections – Ice

Connections are… connections. Okay, I’m sure you figured out that much. Connections are connections between two (or more) things, normally connected only by a word, or two.

Ice #1

Our dog likes ice. We gave her an ice cube that fell on the floor and she had so much fun trying to eat it. I’m just glad she didn’t try to chew on it. Ouch. That was pretty funny. And then, on our trip to Lamesa (Thanksgiving!) there was ice on the ground. She sure liked that!

Ice #2

Another quote from a song!

When a heart is cold as ice
You can’t melt it with advice
No one wants to listen to
A list of things they shouldn’t do
So I build a city on a hill
And I light a candle on a sill
Knowing You’ll be always knocking at the door

Learning to be the Light by Newworldson

This is so true about witnessing. You can’t change a heart with advice; you have to lead by example.

Connections – Lines

Connections are… connections. Okay, I’m sure you figured out that much. Connections are connections between two (or more) things, normally connected only by a word, or two.

Line #1

Our dog, Daisy, is not allowed in the kitchen. Where the carpet ends and the tile begins, there’s basically an imaginary line. No crossing. Of course, she does cross it. Sigh. So we get her out.

Line #2

‘Cause we all make mistakes sometimes,

 And we all step across that line,

But nothing’s sweeter than the day we find,

Forgiveness, forgiveness…

-“Forgiveness” by tobyMac

From the album Eye On It

Yes, there’s a very, very narrow line for sin, too. You’re either on the “sin side” of the line, or you’re not. And when you step onto the “sin side” of the line, just ask God for his forgiveness. You’ll get it.
