We attended our "old" church this morning and enjoyed seeing everyone very much. We left there when Maegann was almost 2 years old as at that time we felt the need to find a church home that had a solid children's program. Ironic how now we are considering leaving the church with the solid children's program to go back to the "old" church. Things at our current place have gone down in the children's department since the pastor that had been leading that area left and we then had an interim followed by a part-time paid director. We feel God has helped us keep solid relationships with our "old" church family for a reason and this just might be it. We do plan to ask the sr. pastor what the future plans are for the children and youth departments out of curiousity because we know we are right in needing to move from this church if he likes what is happening. What bumped up our thoughts to make a change? My bible study time with Maegann this morning which is her homework for her Thursday study group. I found out more that had gone on between her and the children's director and now I can understand why she reacts so violently to her. So sad.
Bible Quizzing was this afternoon and Isaac got through his first challenge passage and has until Wednesday night to say the second one. If he can get it done he will secure the "big" trophy at the final quiz meet. He is sooooo close! I'm amazed by his ability to memorize scripture. Final quiz meet is March 16 and he's ready to be done.
As for me... I spent that precious time with Maegann with her homework, helped at quizzing, got things ready for co-op tomorrow and am 70% done with my bible study "homework" for Wednesday night.
Tomorrow: co-op and watching Biggest Loser.
WEIGHING & MEASURING CHALLENGE - DAY 23
Another day without measuring tools in use. Mostly pre-measured foods once again so not a big deal.
It would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness than, after knowing it, to turn back. (2 Peter 2:21)
The most dangerously influential opinions are those held by intellectuals and scholars who profess Christianity but deny the veracity and the present power of the Bible. The obvious brilliance of these scholars supported by a convincing list of degrees tempts those who want to believe God's Word to feel gullible and ignorant. The unspoken indictment is, "How could you be stupid enough to believe that??"
Like Eve, we want to feel smart, so we end up making the stupidest decision of our lives. Nothing is more ignorant than choosing man's intelligence over God's.
