New Bibles

I work at LifeWay Christian Bookstore, and there is a new bible out along the lines of the Revolve bible for teenage girls. This one is called Refuel and is geared toward teenage boys, like a magazine. It has top ten lists, Do's and Don'ts, and cool interviews and stories. I picked it up to flip through it, and number one on the top ten list of cool things God made is girls, just edging out jagged mountain peaks and soaring eagles. Then there is a list of do's and don'ts. Do be nice to your mom, don't hit your sister, do pick up after yourself, and don't look down shirts and up skirts.

Thanks to all of you for your patient waiting. I just got back from Branson, MO. I just spent a week with the love of my life, my new wife, on our honeymoon. This time last year I had just left a relationship, and I had committed myself to singleness. Woman were not worth it. I had prayed to God to completely take away my desire for relationships, all urges for anything like that. But God blessed me. More than I ever deserved. God sent me a woman to minister with me side by side. I told her, I do not know where we will be, what we will be doing, how we will be doing it. I do not know where God will lead us. I do not know where our next meal will come from, or where we will live, but I can promise you that we will always passionately pursue after the Father, and we will not rest until all the nations praise Him. Thank you, Father, for blessing me with an angel from above. Thank you.
