    common sense for preggos.

    1. if you have gestational diabetes, don't ask your nurse if you can eat powdered donuts for breakfast while you're in labor. seriously.

    2. get a car seat for the infant and bring it with you to the hospital. you just might need it if you are planning on taking the child home with you.

    3. if you think or know you're pregnant, SEE A DOCTOR. please don't wait until it's been 36 weeks since the child was made.

    4. think you're water is broke? NOW is a good time to go to the hospital.

    5. don't skip meals. you may not be hungry, but the kid inside you is. and would probably like something to drink. a coke for breakfast should not be the only thing you've ingested all day.

    God's purpose.

    And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to His purpose. For those whom He foreknew He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son. -Romans 8:28-29

    God is concerned with His purpose - to make His people holy like His Son and thus glorify Himself. He is sovereign over all things and He will do whatever it takes large or small, exciting or life-devastating, exalting or humbling to do so.

    There are times when it costs us everything in this world but surely it is a great mercy in comparison to "the glory that is to be revealed to us" in the life to come. If we are His, no matter how terrible our situations may get, we can be assured that He is doing it all for our good.

    For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what shall a man give in return for his soul? -Matthew 16:26

    God moves in a mysterious way
    His wonders to perform;
    He plants His footsteps in the sea
    And rides upon the storm.

    Deep in unfathomable mines
    Of never failing skill
    He treasures up His bright designs
    And works His sovereign will.

    Ye fearful saints, fresh courage take;
    The clouds ye so much dread
    Are big with mercy and shall break
    In blessings on your head.

    Judge not the Lord by feeble sense,
    But trust Him for His grace;
    Behind a frowning providence
    He hides a smiling face.

    His purposes will ripen fast,
    Unfolding every hour;
    The bud may have a bitter taste,
    But sweet will be the flower.

    Blind unbelief is sure to err
    And scan His work in vain;
    God is His own interpreter,
    And He will make it plain.

    -God Moves in a Mysterious Way, William Cowper

    The real "missing link"

    Is it just me or is it really abasing for evolutionists to desire so strongly to find that we humans are decended from monkeys? Seems a bit humiliating to me. These people are doing all they can to find the "missing link" between man and monkeys. And they think they have.

    Come on, folks. Let's have a little higher view of ourselves.

    We are made in the image of God Almighty, the Lord of Hosts, YHWH - the ETERNAL GOD. I think this is a much more honorable thought for the human race, not to mention its biblical truth.

    The real missing link is between God and man, not man and monkey. We sinned in the garden of Eden, separated ourselves from God and were cursed. The missing link is Righteousness.

    What or Who is it? Jesus Christ, the propitiation for our sins.

    Romans 5:8-11
    God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God. For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by his life. More than that, we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation.

    1 John 4:9-10
    In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him. 10In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.

    Seems a bit of a stretch to me that the world could even be 47 million years old. Whatev.
