WCC 2018 HERE COMES MAR BEAR!!!

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAHHHH!!! You guys I'm SIKED!!! I've been in a nervous frenzy of excitement all day today!!! Hanna was like, what are you doing? I'm like, just pacing around the house and dancing....Even my feet are when I sit down!!! I'm nervous because, a week ago I remembered I had lost my driver's license like 4 months ago...Yeah, I've been driving around without a license...don't judge me...LOL...so I went online and reordered one, well, by Wednesday it hadn't come in so I was like, OMW I better go to DMV and just buy another one otherwise I can't board the plane!!! Well I bought one...DUUUUUDE...new weight on my driver's license is 250 instead of 360...that was a HAPPY MOMENT...anyway, the lady was like, ok it'll come in the mail in 2 weeks! I was like, WHAAAAAAAAAAT??? 
.
I have to board the plane TOMORROW...so she said that I just showed them the paper a long with my passport and I would be fine... I called up to confirm that and they said I SHOULD be good but to go to the TSA website...soooooooo according to the website I'm good, even IF you lose your ID, they'll usually still let you on, just plan on a complete pat down etc... and all this other background checking....and to get there 2 hrs early...I ALWAYS get patted down...and I hate it cuz I'm sooooo ticklish...I feel like laughing only makes it MORE AWKWARD...buuuut I can't help it!!! I never understand WHY they ask if you want a private room for a pat down, I'm like UH NOOOOOOOOOOO!!! AHAHAHAHAAHHAHAHAAA!!! 
 .
Sooooo I'm like, Hanna maybe I shouldn't curl my hair then, cuz I wanted it to be curly, i'll look more suscpicious with it in pin curls, she was like, naw, just do it! Who's gonna bomb a plane with their hair curled...I was like TRUE!!! AHAHAHAHHAAA
You guys, don't judge me for walking around like this, you don't know just HOW STRAIGHT my hair is, it HAS to set for a long time, to curl!!!! Anywayz, I usually get compliments on it...LOL..heeeeey maybe people will think its my costume...I'm trying to be a grandma...Hee, hee!!!

When I worship...

If  you knew my mom, you know that she was a WORHSHIPPER!!! If you didn't know my mom, let me tell you something, SHE WAS A WORSHIPPER!!! She worshipped with all her heart and soul. She was loud and she had her tambourine and she shook that thing with all her might! I can still hear her in my mind, Amen-ing and Hallaugh-ing!!! 
Image result for Tambourine
My mom worshipped with everything that was in her, buuuuuuuuuuut, my mom had physical limitations that kept her from fully worshipping God the way she wholly wanted too! My mom couldn't run the aisles, she couldn't dance in the spirit or jump for joy the way I KNOW she wanted too...She had LIMITATIONS...
BUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUT...
Sometimes when I start worshipping God, I start worshipping Him, the way I KNOW my mom ALWAYS WANTED to be able to worship God, ANNNNNNND the way I KNOW she can worship Him NOW!!! She had her physical limitations down here,
BUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUT...
BUT NOW, she's up there, OUT WORSHIPPING ALL OF US!!! 
.
Do you have a loved one that's on the other side??? Next time your worshipping God, worship Him like you know they are worshipping God now that they have made it to heaven and are in His presence!!! You'll neverrrrr be able to out worship them while your here on earth, buuuuuuut YOU CAN GIVE IT ALL YOU'VE GOT!!! You can try!!! God is worthy!!! There is coming a day WITHOUT PHYSICAL LIMITATIONS!!! Let's practice NOW for that day!!! 
"And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might." (Deuteronomy 6:5)

Happy Brain-boosting Wednesday!!!


Here's your middle-of-the-week brain booster!!!
.
"Did you know???..."
.
That Ethiopians discovered coffee???
"...Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeelllll NOW YOU DO, annnnnnnnnd don't you FORGET IT!!!" (AIO BTV quote;)

I was telling Hanna about it and then I was like, You know, I was researching Ethiopian food on the internet and you guys have NO DESSERT of your own, I thought that was kind of odd!!! The paraphrasion of our convo went something like this, I mean, they say you can get dessert in Ethiopia, BUUUUT it's NOT an Ethiopian dessert, they're all European desserts. So Hanna was like, yeah I know, I don't know why we don't have any of our own desserts, So i'm like, yeah, I mean, can't someone do something sweet with the injera or something??? So then Hanna's like, but you know what, WE DON"T NEED TO HAVE OUR OWN DESSERT...
WE INVENTED COFFEE!!!
that was our contribution to the world!
I'm like, Weeeeeeeeeeeeelllll that's TRUE...you really can't argue with that!!! Hee, hee!!!
Yes, it's true people, ETHIOPIANS were the FIRST, {that we know of}, to discover COFFEE!!! It is a well known fact by coffee addicts that COFFEE is NATIVE ONLY TO THE COUNTRY OF ETHIOPIA!!! You can read more about it HERE!!!
Coffee Humor | From Funny Technology - Google+ via Peter Angerani:
Next time you wake up early, and your struggling to that cup of coffee, as you take that FIRST, glorious sip, YOU KNOW LONGER have to wonder WHO you should thank for the invention of coffee...
Thank AN ETHIOPIAN!!!
Better yet, JUST THANK...
HANNA!!! :))))

Odin's Dedication!!!



Pastor preached about David, which went in perfect with Odin's new middle name he received upon his adoption, DAVID, as opposed to Atom after the atom bomb which he was named after at his birth....
The Isrealites versus GOLIATH and his armor bearer!!! LOL


Odin was TOTALLY into destroying Goliath!!!

Pastor talked about how God makes champions out of us...
God made a champion out of Odin!!!
We believe God will do great things through the life of Odin David Ginty...Our lil O!!!

When there's still roots (Part 2)

Last week, I talked with you all about how our grapefruit tree was blown over in a rainstorm but how BECAUSE there was still roots in the ground from the tree, a new tree has begun to grow in place of the old one. Refresh your memory with When There's Still Roots Part 1, today I want to talk to you all about part 2 of this aspect. Last week we saw the positive aspect of what can happen when you still have roots in a good thing, something new will begin to grow from it. 
.
However, while roots in something that is good will bring forth something new that is good, when something bad is cut out of your life, if you have roots in something bad, something new, that is bad will once again begin to grow. It's good to cut out bad things in our life. Ungodly influences, worldly lusts, carnal desires, but check yourself, you have to do more than just cut down the tree, you have to get down to the heart of the issue. You may have cut the item out of your life, buuuuuuut did you also dig out the roots? 
.
If you find yourself struggling over and over again with the same thing, perhaps its because you never dug out the roots. The roots of the issue must be completely dug out and destroyed, never to grow back again in another form. Search your heart today, ask God to show you if there are any roots in your heart that need to be dug out! 
If there is something, 
GET THE SHOVEL,
 it's time to start digging!!! 
"“Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled;” (Hebrews 12:15)

Martin & Lucero's Wedding!!!

THE LICENSE!!!
This past Saturday, October 6th, Martin and Lucero got married!!! 
This couple came to our church at the very end of July seeking to be baptized. They had both just been baptized the week before at another church, but upon looking it up on his own accord, Martin realized that they need to be baptized in Jesus name, not just in the titles, father, son and holy ghost. He looked up three different Pentecostal church to call and enquire about being rebaptized in Jesus name. The first 2 churches didn't answer but Pastor, who does not normally answer the phone during the time Martin was calling, answered. That evening they came and were baptized in Jesus name. Soon after being baptized in Jesus name, they were both filled with the precious gift of the Holy Ghost. We believe that God specifically wanted this very special couple in our church.

When there's still roots (Part 1)

So we've always had a grapefruit tree in our front yard, after some recent heavy rain storms, it fell to the ground and we had to have it carried away. In the front yard there was a huge bare spot where the tree had once been. Buuuuuuut last week when my brother was over, he noticed that there was a small green plant growing where the big grapefruit tree had been. He asked me, is that a new grape fruit tree growing there? I was like, I have no idea! I went over and smelled one of the leaves and was greeted with a beautiful, strong and refreshing citrus smell...it WAS a NEW TREE!!! We were sooooooo excited!!! Apparently, the roots from our tree were still deep in the ground and with all the rain, it began to grow a tree again!! 
Sometimes, in life, there are things in our lives that fall down and take are taken out of our lives, we are left with a bare and empty space that we are not sure what to do with. Buuuuuuuuuuuuuut when we have roots in Christ, something new will grow from Him. When an old tree in your life dies, Be patient, trust in God and wait to see what God is going to put into the bareness of your life!! The tree may be gone, but you still have your roots, something new will begin to grow again!!!
.
"For there is hope for a tree, When it is cut down, that it will sprout again, And its shoots will not fail. "Though its roots grow old in the ground And its stump dies in the dry soil, At the scent of water it will flourish And put forth sprigs like a plant." (Job 14:7-9)
.
"Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit." (John 12:24)
