Quote of the Week
” I can understand the plight of being average in mentality or in physical endowments–because I surely qualify in both categories–but I do not understand why so many Christians read a Bible abounding in promises to make them something beyond themselves and yet settle for a spiritual vitality so mediocre as to seem virtually nonexistent. Consequently, the Christian who becomes demonstrably involved with God is looked upon as the rare exception far above the established rule…
…In God’s sight, I am convinced, the oddity is the man who misses HIs mark for him, and the norm is the man who discovers the Christian life in all its dynamic perspective.”

(there are three video’s on this webpage by Mark Cahill…all three are really good. “No Crossing Over” is the second one down.)

Awhile back Noah and Isaiah were playing together, and both were wearing their fireman’s hats. Isaiah did something Noah didn’t like, so he came to Leah and was telling her about it, and at the end he said, “…then he hit me hard on the hat!” Instead hitting him on the head, he hit him on the hat .
While picking up sticks one day recently, Isaiah started crying and Bekah went to see what was the matter. She was carrying him and he told her, “I want to get in the bear, bear wheel!” (wheelbarrow)
One day Jessica was holding Isaiah, and Isaiah saw a cat that one of the girls had recently renamed “China” (the cat’s former name had been Ethiopia!). When Isaiah saw it, he said, “That a china cat!”
