Tribute to my Grandfather and my daddy

hello everyone! My dear sister Bethany is doing much better. She is not all drugged up as she was yesterday. So now we can actually chat and go about our day as normal. But it sure was fun watching movies and eating good food together in her bed yesterday while crocheting and sewing. I have neglected this post for some time! BacK in November my family went to the Udvar Hazy museum of air and space and we were able to do some photos of the memorial to my grandfather and all the other men who served in the Vietman.Above are my sister, mother, and father finding my grandfathers name. The monuments were quite modern, which we did not expect. But they were great!
Inside I found lots of things to photograph with our new camera! :)
My father also fought in the war Desert Shield, Desert Storm when I was born. So I have a great respect for our military. The Bible does not say that war is bad I believe and I believe that to be in the military for our men is an honor and a way they can serve God. Praise God for all the troops that are protecting us daily all over the world and especially in Iraq and Afganistan right now.



Mom relaxing while we went to see the Space ships and such. Well I hope you all are having a great thursday! I am! And its been quite productive. I believe my etsy store will be open for business Lord willing next weeK. But it may be a little longer. As long as my dad can help me with the shop this weeKend it will open on schedule next friday.
Be blessed and I have been pondering Romans 6:1-6 today, I pray that my non christian readers will realize that the God of the universe can mold and shape you into a new creation! A creation that is totally surrendered to the God that became a man and died for our sins. And He rose again and gave us the Holy Spirit that we may live to His glory! You can too be dead to sin and new in Christ! If you want to learn more about the Gospel message please email me-ra.stricKer@gmail.com or comment here. I am also on facebooK, so do go and find me on there.

"What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin that grace may abound? By no means! How can we who died to sin still live in it? Do you not Know that all of us who have been baptised into Christ Jesus were baptised into his death? We were buried therefore in him in baptism unto death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walK in newness of life. For if we have been united with Him in a death liKe His, we shall certainly be united with Him in a resurrection liKe His. We Know that our old self was crucified with Him inorder that the body of sin might be brought to nothing, so that we would no longer be enslaved to sin."-Romans 6:1-6

In Christ,
Rebecca

How wonderful that you were able to visit and see so much of what happened before.

I am glad that Bethany is doing better - good food always does the trick ;)

Romans...a book that convicts...a book that changes lives. But you have to be willing to change. To give up in order to gain.

Great post dear one.

thank you so much Maria for your encouraging comment! Yes its definately something that the person has to do in order to change, repent and believe and we can't do it for them. Sometimes I wish I could, but its up to God to draw them to Himself. :) Yes I am so glad Bethany is doing so much better! Do keep praying for her recovery. Her face is pretty swollen compared to yesterday.

Bonnie I am so glad to be apart of the christian bloggers blog! What a great thing you have put together! I will be following the blog! thanks for putting me on the list! I hope many will be encouraged by my blog!

In Christ,
Rebecca

Hello Rebecca.
I just wanted to leave you a note to say thank you for such encouraging posts! The last few have really been incredible, and God laid it on my heart to let you know how you touch people you don't even know. (Even though I feel like I know you from reading. :D) I also am going to start listening to sermons while I'm sewing, and doing daily activites. It's such a great way to learn more of God's Holy Word while still doing other things. Further incorporating God into EVERY aspect of life.

Thank you again! Your message has really challenged me to find more ways to worship God in everyday tasks.

Kristen I am so glad I could encourage you! Really this part of my life- blogging is really a way for me to share what the Lord has put on my heart and what He is doing in my life. He is so so good to me! Words can never describe and I am still in awe of how much He encourages me through blogging and meeting others through it! Praise God He is talKing to you and so many other young women to seeK Him every minute of every day! That is my prayer that more women would seeK Him by reading my blog! To Him be the glory and I am so glad to hear that my blog reflects that, God being first and formost!

Glad you were challenged and I am challenged by your comment to even more seeK Him every minute of every day!

In Christ,
Rebecca
