Bumper Witness

My old car wouldn't fit in my dinky garage, so we bought a new one. I got a 2005 PT Cruiser with 35,000 miles for the the bargain price of $7500! (Kelley Blue Book was $10,000min. and dealers were selling the same car for $13,000) Awesome deal, eh? Thank you , Lord!

So, now I am on the hunt for new bumper stickers. My old car's read "Many religious People, Few real Christians. Why RU Real? and our church phone #" and one also that read "Real Christians know that Abortion and Homosexuality are Sin" I got flipped off, honked at, and cut off on the freeway because of that one. One time a guy driving next to me wrote on a piece of paper that I was a ****ing hater. I just waved. The bumper stickers aren't hateful, just truthful and people hate that.

Anyway, the church ran out of bumper stickers so my hubby and I came up with a couple on our own. The PT has room on the back for at least 9 bumper stickers! lol I put one on the other day that always leads to witnesses in the store parking lot. "Ex-Lutherans for Christ" People always ask what that means so I explain the difference about water baptism paying for sins, keeping the commandments to go to heaven, repenting for salvation verses Christ paying for your sins , Him being the only way, and that you'll never repent of all sins, ect.

Back to the ones we made up. Can you guys vote on them? Or let me know what you think.
My church made one more that read. "They murdered 50 million babies and now they can't figure out marriage. Where are all the real Christians?" I don't care for that one, because an unbeliever may think that I am saying a real Christian wouldn't have an abortion or that they would know what marriage is supposed to be. But a Christian can still do bad things. Duh, we do! We still sin every day. We are supposed to do better. We are supposed to sin less, but not every Christian is a disciple. There are baby Christians on one end of the spectrum and mature, bond servants on the other end. There are even what the bible calls fleshly, worldly, and dead Christians. But they are still Christians if they truly believe God died and paid for the debt they owe to God for their sins...

There I go babbling again!

#1- "God died for the ungodly. That's you and me."

#2- "I have salvation, not probation. How about you?"
(could read "Do you have salvation or probation? God died for all, not all
but ___!"

#3- "The nation who God is the Lord shall be blessed"

I think I'm going to try and make the bumper stickers using a kit I saw at Office Depot. I don't know how well it'll work, but that's the plan.

Spring is in the air

Don't worry, ladies, I am still here. Alive and well. Business is booming and life never seems to slow up for it. haha
As I am coming tot he end of the year, I have been trying to be diligent in getting the schoolwork completed in a timely manner so I'm not stuck teaching class when it's 80 degrees outside. Our family enjoys class in the backyard, but, well, to be honest, I'd rather be in the backyard without the classwork!
My son had to have 2 of his baby teeth pulled this week because of the infections he had had never went away. What started as one, became two and then three. After them putting him on the antibiotics 5 times, I had enough. I took him to a new dentist who recommended I just pull them. It was actually kind of humorous. The dentist came in the room and gave me a lecture on how a child his age shouldn't have these problems and how I must be neglecting him. Then he opened Colton's mouth and said "Never mind, it's not your fault." Personally, I felt an apology was in order, but I left satisfied and encouraged to not neglect my son any further...sugars and sweets in moderation. Well, they were always in moderation, I thought, but we as a family decided it best to curb them even more. Just because we like it, doesn't mean it's good for us.
Hopefully, I can get back into the groove here and find more time to post. Maybe early like this will work. We'll have to see.


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!
