Here's a picture the Lord gave me this morning...

You can always have a little revival in your own heart on any one point where the Lord has a controversy with you. Test it. It may be only one point, but you know that one this is holding you up. You have to get clear on that one thing, and then at last you go down with that thing under the Lord and put it under His feet, you have a little revival in your own heart and you come out with new life, new testimony, new release. Spread that over all things, and the kingdom has come. -T. Austin Sparks in God's Spiritual House.

When I think of a kingdom, I think of a King, and his subjects. Like in a movie I once saw, all the subjects honor the king, and always show him reverence. Even the most base of people always respected him shouting with fervor "Long live the King!" And whoever entered his presence would always kneel. It's the same in God's kingdom within us. Each area in our life must be subject to Him as king. And of His kingdom there will be no end. More and more subjects are added, as more and more points in our life are surrendered to His control. May I always bend the knee to His presence, and war to advance the kingdom of God within.

And I will give them one heart, and one way, that they may fear me for ever for the good of them, and of their children after them. -Jeremiah 32:39


Here's a little ski trip I went on with Ericksons, Cenzers, Kisslings, Heyworths, Alessios, and a few others...



I made this for Mr. and Mrs. Heyworth on valentines day.


This boy was at the pizza place we had dinner at. He had made all these "cards". They each had a character drawn on them with the character's name and number. They were so creative and individual I asked if I could get a picture of them. One was a Compus Bird, it was an original 4 armed creature with an original name.




We went to a wonderful wedding of our friend Audrey to Curtis. Formerly known as Audrey LeCuraux

They were delighted.


Little sisters, flower girls.


It was great to see the parents so delighted too.



These are of the church...

Johanna drew this picture of the cross. It was so exciting to me, shows such love and power.

After meeting with our church in the morning, we went to a wonderful Hymn Sing in Lake Orion. There was a man there with a strong eastern european voice. He was really great on A Mighty Fortress is Our God. Also hear Oh, the Deep Deep Love of Jesus. There was such a presence of God there while singing, like rarely seen. My favorite was Jesus Lover Of My Soul, it would not have made a good recording though, too much weeping in praise. Look at these powerful verses...

1. Jesus, lover of my soul,
let me to thy bosom fly,
while the nearer waters roll,
while the tempest still is high.
Hide me, O my Savior, hide,
till the storm of life is past;
safe into the haven guide;
O receive my soul at last.

2. Other refuge have I none,
hangs my helpless soul on thee;
leave, ah! leave me not alone,
still support and comfort me.
All my trust on thee is stayed,
all my help from thee I bring;
cover my defenseless head
with the shadow of thy wing.

3. Thou, O Christ, art all I want,
more than all in thee I find;
raise the fallen, cheer the faint,
heal the sick, and lead the blind.
Just and holy is thy name,
I am all unrighteousness;
false and full of sin I am;
thou art full of truth and grace.

4. Plenteous grace with thee is found,
grace to cover all my sin;
let the healing streams abound,
make and keep me pure within.
Thou of life the fountain art,
freely let me take of thee;
spring thou up within my heart;
rise to all eternity.



Inner city sledding with the Josephs, it's a blast!



Once again Levi has wowed us all with his amazing adventures. Check it out on his blog at



It's been so nice out, I thought it was summer.


I went to another great art lesson with Bro. Don West. This time it was BORN AGAIN!

John 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.



This is a great free download album I found. I really really like The Baptism of Jesse Taylor on it. It reminds me of what I hear of when my grandfather was baptized, ah, such deliverance! Also check out Better Get Right With Jesus. Only these guys can make "day" and "me" rhyme. Get it all at



I participated in The Rebelution's modesty survey. I found several answers down the list for this question to be particularly good "If you could say one thing to your sisters in Christ about modesty, what would it be?" Girls, check out these wonderful words...

Disclaimer: This doesn't mean I'm giving a total recomendation to all responces given in the survey.




I found some pictures from our baptism day in August 04. It was such a blessing. So many wonderful people there. Click picture to see a gallery of the day.
