"Your greatest contribution to the Kingdom of God may not be something you do, but someone you raise." ~Andy Stanley

That time when I got in a fight with my Kitchen Aid and lost!

Oh.My.Stars. The craziest thing happened to me when I was making mashed potatoes for Andrew's "southern" birthday dinner. The wire whisk attachment broke and a couple of the newly unattached metal spokes were somehow hitting me on both arms and in the neck and as I leaned in to turn it off, I accidentally turned the speed up higher and got hit some more. I screamed and hot potatoes were flying all over the kitchen. When I finally got it shut off, my arms had marks from being "whisked" and I had mashed potatoes in my hair! -If it wasn't so painful, it would have been hilarious!

Despite all that, we had a wonderful time celebrating Andrew.

Hubby gave a speech and reminded us all that Andrew's name means "manly" and "courageous warrior."
We prayed for him to continue to be those things, then we ate too much and played some games. -There's one game we probably will not ever play again. But we will probably remember the shark fisherman in the middle of a thunderstorm, among other things...

Concentrating on one of the games and wishing Mom was not taking his picture. : )
Andrew (or Andy, as all his friends call him now) is such a blessing to us. He is a very compassionate young man and always seems to be looking for ways to help me. If it is true that young men grow up to treat their wives the way they treated their mothers, than his future wife is going to be VERY blessed!!! He's a sweetheart and also hilarious, as in, makes-you-spit-out-your-drink, kind of funny! : ) 
And we are so thankful for him!

Here he is at 7:00 AM
-Our poor kids, have to sing and be sung to on their birthdays when they aren't quite awake! And eat a chocolate chip pancake shaped like a bear, no matter how old they are. ; )
 Unless we are out of chocolate chips and then we have to give M&M's a try. LOL

God's credibility is not predicated by a vote of confidence by the majority. God does not need to have His truth validated by the masses. The Bible and the Bible alone is God's truth to mankind. No creed book, Bible commentary, nor congregational church vote is needed to affirm God's credibility.

The entire population of the world disbelieved God when He told them is they ate from the tree in the middle of the garden or touched it, that they would die. (Genesis 3:4)

Adam and Eve died even though the majority opinion was in their favor. God's truth was not voided because the total population of the world disbelieved it.

Mark 16:16 He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned.

Jesus said he who has believed shall be saved. The vast majority of the world disbelieves that. The majority opinion does not invalidate the words of Jesus.

Jesus said he who has been baptized shall be saved. The majority of the world believes water baptism is not essential in order for men to be saved. Majority opinion is not necessary to affirm, establish, or validate the words of Jesus Christ.

God's credibility does not depend on the majority of the worlds population to confirm, validate, endorse, nor corroborate His truth.

GOD'S WORD IS FOUND IN THE BIBLE AND THE BIBLE ALONE. The truth in the Bible is not subject to affirmation by a majority vote.
