Eddie Izzard

Eddie Izzard is one of the funniest comedians ever, even though he uses a lot of profanity which really turns me off, he is an original genius. He had a hard life growing up, he is a transvestite and does not believe in God. I pray that Eddie will start noticing that God has been…

Westgate Beautiful Day @ invission

Epiphany

I remembered how Silas and Paul were singing in the prison after being beaten and flogged? Acts 16:16-40, why would they sing psalms? Sing at all?!

Movies with a nice message Sucker Punch .- I haven’t liked a movie so much in quite a long time. It has everything I like in a movie: A good story and a good message, and except for the violence basically a PG movie. Great action sequences, great special effects, just visually stunning, an beautiful…

Evidence of the Holly Spirit

I realized something this last week when talking about God, Christianity, the bible and other religions. When I was describing that we christians believe, as in know, that God in the person of  the Holly Spirit comes and lives in our hearts, in our beings. What I realized was this: I believe this is true…
