October's Apostolic Male Model!!!

HERE it is girls!!!!! What you all have been WAITING FOR!!!
Now girls, I know that all of the male models are pretty cool guys...BUT this guy is by FAR the coolest of them ALL!!! You know why???? Because this guy is NOT your ordinary Joe, NOOOO WAAAAY!! This is guy is what we call...

JOE COOL!!!!! is a complete delight for me to introduce you all to the one and only...
Joe Valez resides in the interesting town of Roswell, New Mexico, where he faithfully attend's Apostolic Bible Church, Pastored by Bro. Foster. Joe is VERY active in his church and is involved in many different activities. He praise sings, a strong tenor in the choir, helps with the PA, a leader in prayer and worship, attends all youth functions, helps EVERY Sunday with the nursing home ministry and much, much MORE!!! Basically, Joe will help whenever and wherever he is needed. Joe is always ready to help! In FACT he is the kind of guy that looks for ways to help WITHOUT even being asked!!! NOW...girls...THAT is really SOMETHING worth shoutin over!!! ;) ;)

Joe works at a local public school on the custodial staff. He is highly regarded by his supervisors and it is HOPED that they won't soon lose him to a better job. He also helps out with his church's school, Conqueror's Christian Academy. He has a heart for kids and OF COURSE they all love him right back...but then WHO DOESN'T LOVE Joe???
After all...THIS IS...

Joe graduated from Conqueror's Christian Academy this past May. He is currently a full time college student. Joe is a hard worker and very good with his money. He bought his own car two years ago and paid for it in full with CASH!!!! (Thats right girls, NO DEBT!!! Another thing WORTH shoutin over;)

Joe is not a very loud person. He is a reserved young man, Mr. Nice-Guy all the way, slow to speak, quick to listen, but always ready with a witty punchline at just the right second! Then everyone will burst into laughter and think....
 what a cool guy Joe REALLY is!!!
He can also do some really cool things, like carve the above pumpkin!!! AND he is origianlly an AZ that just makes him EVEN cooler!!! ;)

Psalm 1

1. Blessed is the man that walketh NOT in the council of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.

2. But his delight is in the law of the Lord and in his law doth he meditate day and night.

3. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season. His leaf also shall not whither and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

4. The ungodly or not so, but are like the chaf which the wind driveth away.

5. Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgement, nor sinners in the congergation of the rightous.

6. For the Lord knoweth the way of the rightous, but the way of the ungodly shall perish.

See THAT above scripture you all?!?!?! That was TYPED from memory!!! (The spelling and punctuation isn't exact) I did NOT copy/paste that from YA ALL... I MEMORIZED that scripture THIS WEEK!!! I am SOOO totally siked about it!!! I started working on it on Wednesday and finished it last night!!! I've been quoting it to ANYONE and EVERYONE that will listen!!! MJ said that she is soooooooo proud of me!!! My mom said that she is sooOOOOOoo proud of me!!! T said, "thats cool!" My little brother John REFUSES to listen to me quote it OVER the phone because, "How does he know that I am NOT just reading it from the Bible???" As IF I would lie about something like the BIBLE!!! (okaaaaaay I did in like 5th grade LOL but I wouldn't now!!!!) Soooo I WILL be quoting it in person FOR HIM tomorrow!!!! AND anyone else that wants to hear me quote it IN PERSON...just let me know...

For Romo!!!

This was put up for Romo by HIS request!!! LOL!

We met Romo last night at the Five Guys in Tempe by ASU and at first Jose REFUSED to be friends with Romo!!! He wouldn't EVEN look at him. When Romo would talk to him he would would just stare straight ahead. My brother's kept tryin and tryin to get him to like him and he would NOT!!! So then we are eating our burgers...Which btw- that places burgers we are eatin and Romo starts just holdin out one finger to Jose...and FINALLY Jose held up his finger back!!! It was SOOOO CUTE!!!

So then Jewel got this picture on my camera and when Romo saw it he was like...
OH yeah!!! BROWN AND WHITE!!! LOL It was pretty funny! Then after that they were total buds and Jose accepted him!!! LOL
AND Romo seems to think THAT....
THIS blog post is gonna be bringing in like TONS of traffic to my blog!!!

I got a GOOOOD Math question for you all!!! Lets see if any of you all can figure this question....WITHOUT a calculator!!! ;P Okaaaaaay...soooo you have 113 fish swimming around in a bowl. 2 die because it is TOO crowded in the fishbowl! (Very sad! TOTAL animal cruelty!!! :,(   so you get the bowl and try to scoop the dead ones out...BUT there are sooo many... so you think that you can just pour the two dead ones out into the toilet...BUT you accidentally pour out ALL of the fishies into the toilet!!! Ewwwww!!! Soooo of course there is like NO WAAAAAAAAY your going to fish them all out and back in the instead you just FLUSH the toilet and hope they all have a nice life in their new home!!! However, 3 fish don't end up flushing, 12 get stuck in a pipe, 23 drown on their way out, 17 drown in the sewer, 38 swim up to the top of the tank ... the rest make it to freedom back in the ocean, but one more drowns and 8 more get eaten by a shark! (REALLY SAD AND SCARY!!!) HOWEVER, Nemo DOES find his dad and they all live happily ever after!!! Okaaaaay now heres the BIG question...AND DO NOT use your calculator to answer this...Thats TOTALLY cheatin!!! Okaaaaaay...Soooooooo ALL TOGETHER...
Do it in your head!!!

It made MY DAY!!!

I was tellin a friend that I'm memorizin scripture. Currently working on Psalm one...Blessed is the man that... and my friend says... Blessed is the man that marries Mary! ;) I was like OMW...SCREAMING!!! AAAAAAAUUUUUHHHHH!!! Sometimes you just need those extra little boosters and hearing uplifting words. Thank you my friend for putting a smile on my face and making my day!!!! You TOTALLY ROCK!!! :)

Do you love Jesus?

There is this 16-year-old girl with down syndrome that my sister takes care of twice a week when she gets out of school. I'll just call this girl Ellie. Ellie, doesn't talk much, she can be very sweet but also VERY stubborn!!! She FOR SURE has an attitude...LOL! But I really enjoy gettin hugs from her and TRYING to convince her that I am her friend. Well for the part she just says, yes, no and she can cuss you out in chinese...haha...soooo I was talking to her one day and asking her if she loved certain people...

Ellie do you love your mom? NO!
Ellie do you love your dad? NO!
Ellie do you love Theresa? NO!
Ellie do you love your teacher? NO!
Ellie do you love me? NO!
ELLIE, you don't love ME??? NOOOOOO!!! (K! Got it! LOL!)
Ellie do you love Santa? NO!
Ellie do you love Budda? NO!
Ellie do you love Jesus? (Silence)
Ellie do you love Jesus? (Silence)
Ellie do you love Jesus? (SILENCE)
Ellie do you love Jesus? ( Silence...pause...then a huge...
I mean it was soooo obnoxious and SOOO loud and said with SOOOO much attitude...BUT she knew she loves Jesus!!! I was like SOOOO amazed and happy by it! And it never FAILS..EVERY time I go through all these people with her and ask her if she loves them, SHE NEVER changes on loving Jesus!!! Sometimes she'll say yes we are friends, other days its NO! Somtimes she'll say yes, she loves me and other times its NO! But she NEVER changes on JESUS!!!

I asked my sister, do you think her family taught her that and she said she doubts it, their not religous at all. I said then HOW DOES SHE KNOW to love Jesus!?!?!?!? My sis said she just believes that God put it in her to love Him. Because she is like a child, she doesn't question or doubt it...loving Jesus just comes natural.

And they brought young children to him, that he should touch them: and his disciples rebuked those that brought them. But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God. Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein. And he took them up in his arms, put his hands upon them, and blessed them.
(Mark 13-16)

God's Word!!!

I've been thinking a LOT about some things lately...Pondering matters and not coming up with the right answer. However, today Bro. Sam Karlson preached a message about the word of God. It was such a simple message but it spoke so clearly. Thy word is a lamp unto my feet...ALL of the answers to even the HARDEST questions of life CAN be found IN THE BIBLE!!! When I've prayed and prayed and prayed and still don't know what to do...I NEED to read MORE and MORE and MORE of God's word!!! There is NO problem in life that CAN NOT somehow be solved THROUGH the word that God has written to His people! I remember one time Bishop Abbott asking us what do we think is MORE important; Praying OR reading your Bible? Of course I kinda thought prayer was. However, Bishop Abbott said that although they are basically equally important, " Praying is YOU talking to God, but THE BIBLE is God speaking to US!!!" I was like, oh WOW! AND if you think about it, we wouldn't even KNOW about praying if it weren't for the word of God!
The Bible should be the foundation of our education...

The Bible is the heart of ALL MATTERS!!!
The word of God IS LOVE...God's love!!!
The Bible should be our covering, the roofing in our homes...
The word of God will lead us and Guide us
and tell us where to go when we don't know which way to choose!
The Bible will light our way when everything is dark...

The word of God should be bound to our heart!

The word of God is our weapon to fight OFF the enemy!
The BIBLE brings us eternal life with Christ.
 You CAN NOT lose a battle with the word of God!!!
For God's word is ALWAYS right!!!
The Bible is how we should BEGIN and END our day!!!
Thy WORD have I HID IN MY HEART...that I might not SIN against thee!!!
I Pray God, ENGRAVE your word in me, that it may NEVER be erased!!!
Some blog posts about the word of God that have seriousley spoken to me when reading them can be found HERE and HERE Please read these...You WILL BE TOUCHED!!!
The Bible should be IS

My Costume!!! HAHA!

Sooo today, before church we took a buncha kids trunk or treating at a harvest festival down the street from our church. Well it was soooo FUNNY! Everyone kept telling me that they had liked the way I dressed and did my hair and stuff. Sooo then I hear these two ladies whispering about how it was sooo NEAT how some of these people had really gone ALL OUT with their costumes and they are whispering and then I see them look at me and the one lady is like, I mean LOOK AT HER!!! She is dressed so nice and her hair and the way she did it and the WOW! I WAS LIKE OMW!!! All these people think that this is MY COSTUME! BAHAHAHA! I'm like thinkin, OKAAAY... I'm just on my way to church...This is NOT a costume!!!
I'm a one God, Apostolic, tongue talkin, PENTECOSTAL, through and through!!!
Jesus Saved MY SOUL!!!
It's NOT pretend! It's NOT fake!!!

How to know someone...

People can SAY whatever they want! I can SAY whatever I want! You can TRY to make people believe something, but THE truth is that ACTIONS speak louder than words!!! People know what you really are, by what they see you do!

Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. (Matthew 7:16-20)

Audio Theatre Central is a podcast that explores family friendly audio dramas. Specifially, Lamplighter Theatre, Focus on the Family Radio Theatre AND of course the one and only, [MY PERSONAL ALL TIME FAVORITE show] Adventures in Odyssey.

One minute, they have you laughing with their off the wall commentary and cOrNy jokes...THEN the next thing you know their preachin the word...ACTS 2:38...Right in the middle of it all...I just thought that was like THE COOLEST thing EVER!!! Plus, another cool thing about this crew is that they are soooooooo HONEST!!! Like, they ACTUALLY admit to crying over Radio Theatre Dramas. I mean I'm a girl, and I find myself crying, sometimes even sobbing cuz of the shows ALL THE TIME...but I mean like, these are MANLY MEN!!!! I was like WOW!!!

MJ's lyrics!!!

Sooooooo Mary Jo has ALWAYS had this thing where she totally just makes up her own lyrics to the songs and just TOTALLY thinks that she is singing it RIGHT!!! Like for "Jesus I Love You" Instead of saying your the peace in my storm she says, "Your THE PIZZA in my storm!" Or for the song that says there will be PEACE in the vally for you...and me! SHe says, "There will be PEAS in the valley!!!" LOL AND the favorite one, that TOTALLY cracked Bishop Abbott up, was for the song Calvary, STILL works for me!! MJ was like, "CALORIES!!! Still work for ME!!!" Bahahaha!

BUT the other day she was just singing her heart out and I just like TOTALLY LOST IT!!! We like, ABSOLUTELY love the song Jason Crabb sings, "I've Never Been This Homesick Before" and so MJ was just BELTING it out and it gets to this part where they say, I'm not going to be old and feeble ANYMORE!!! And so I'm listening and MJ is like, "I'm NOT going to be OLD AND SINGLE ANYMORE!!! BAHAHAHAHA!!! LOLOLOL!!! OMW! I was laughing SOOOO HARD!!!
I guess its pretty obivous what she hears around the house...LOL...Yes, she lives with a mom and aunt...that are "OLD AND SINGLE" AHAHAHAHAHA! 

BUT...THERE is coming a day,
when EVEN Mary And Theresa
AREN'T gonna be single ANYMORE!!!

What's different?

Do you remember as a child, you would see in a magazine two pictures that were ALMOST identical, but they really weren't. Within the pictures, there were some SLIGHT alterations and it was your job to sit there and look and look and LOOK, until  you found the differences.

And although this was an incredibley fun thing to do as a child, as a Christian, we shouldn't have to play this game. When people look at us, they shouldn't have to say, "What's different?" They shouldn't have compare us to this world like...hmmm...they seem exactley the same as everyone else...."What is it?" They shouldn't have to WONDER about us really living for God, they should ALREADY be able to tell. The way we act should be different, the way we talk should be DIFFERENT! Who we fellowship with should be different! The way we dress should be DIFFERENT! The way we treat people should be diffenrt!!! Everything in our life should be DIFFERENT! Sometimes we try SOOOOO hard to fit in with the world, but we shouldn't. Its sad seein a good, christian and not even knowing they are a Christian, because they are TRYING sooooooo hard NOT to be DIFFERNT.

Living for God is NOT like some kind of "WHERES WALDO" game...

God doesn't want us to be like Waldo and just 'blend in'!!!  God wants us to stand out in the middle of a crowd of ungodly people. We don't need to try and make it hard for the world to see that we are a Christian. The Bible says in 2 Corinthians 6:17, "Wherefore, come out from among them, and be ye seperate, saith the Lord..."

"If you want to make a difference,
