Tuesday, September 18


Today, to break up my school day (aka-monkey wrench in schedule),

my hubby sent some guys over to do an estimate for the siding on our house--And as I speak to these kind men, my children lose all sight or focus of their school work and of course take full advantage of my lack of attention and direction...(aka- HUGE monkey wrench in schedule)

can you believe it!! $14,000!!! Is that not insane! That was after their generous 25% discount (which I'm sure is just a marketing tactic)...Needless to say, we won't be going with that company! lol That was for insulated sided--the cheap stuff was only 10 grand...

I have a guy coming over tomorrow that said he would do it for a mere $2,000! Ridiculus! I think I am still in shock!


Ok, so my tooth is hurting, I keep having chills and hot flashes and I think I am going to die... WEll, I know I am going to die eventually, Lord willing, I was hoping not soon...ok, so now my mind spins in a way different direction than where I was originally floating off to...

How do you think it'll be for you when you die?


Is God going to say "Oh Becca, you did an AWESOME job of serving ME!"

(*sigh)Man, oh, man...

Ah, You might say, "yes"...

Then, stand me next to the apostle John --who had them crucify him upside down becasue he didn't feel himself worthy to die in the same manner as CHrist...

Or the little boy who watched torturers beat his dad to death and then him--refusing to deny his faith...

Would I do that?

Spoiled American me?

Would I persevere or would I wimp out and deny Christ verbally to avoid persecution?

I really wonder...I mean, I'd like to think I would but if I really, truly am honest, would I?? I whine if I'm hot, I whine if I'm cold, I bellow out like a wounded pig if I stub my pinkie toe!

And so can I honestly tell someone I would stand up to any persecutions that came my way? That I somehow deserve to sit next to the apostles at that table in heaven?

No, honesty and reality tell me "no"...

I do not compare...

Now, how in the world did my mind get there???

Wow, what a great thought. I would also like to think that I would die for Jesus. But I too complain a lot it seems. Hmmm... wonder if it mattered that it was "too cold" or "too hot" in the room, to those who were persecuted and killed for the gospel? We truly have it too good here in America. We are spoiled!!


The Maker of all human beings is recalling all units manufactured, regardless of make or year, due to a serious defect in the primary and central component of the heart. This is due to a malfunction in the original prototype units code named Adam and Eve, resulting in the reproduction of the same defect in all subsequent units. This defect has been technically termed "Subsequential Internal Non-Morality," or more commonly known as S.I.N., as it is primarily expressed.

Some other symptoms include:
1. Loss of direction

2. Foul vocal emissions

3. Amnesia of origin

4. Lack of peace and joy

5. Selfish or violent behavior

6. Depression or confusion in the mental Component

7. Fearfulness

8. Idolatry

9. Rebellion

The Manufacturer, who is neither liable nor at fault for this defect, is providing factory-authorized repair and service free of charge to correct this SIN defect. The Repair Technician, Jesus, has most generously offered to bear the entire burden of the staggering cost of these repairs. There is no additional fee required.

The number to call for repair in all areas is:

Once connected, please upload your burden of SIN through the REPENTANCE procedure. Next, download ATONEMENT from the Repair Technician, Jesus, into the heart component.

No matter how big or small the SIN defect is, Jesus will replace it with:
1. Love
2. Joy
3. Peace
4. Patience
5. Kindness
6. Goodness
7. Faithfulness
8. Gentleness
9. Self control

Please see the operating manual, the B.I.B.L.E. (Believers' Instructions Before Leaving Earth) for further details on the use of these fixes.

WARNING: Continuing to operate the human being unit without correction voids any manufacturer warranties, exposing the unit to dangers and problems too numerous to list and will result in the human unit being permanently impounded.

DANGER: The human being units not responding to this recall action will have to be scrapped in the furnace. The SIN defect will not be permitted to enter Heaven so as to prevent contamination of that facility.

Thank you for your attention!

Please assist where possible by notifying others of this important recall notice, and you may contact the Father any time by "kneemail".
