A stick.

What is bright orange and sounds like a parrot?

A carrot.

Why did the chicken cross the playground?

To get to the other slide.

Why do chicken coops have two doors?

Because if they had four doors, they'd be chicken sedans.

On the whole, God's love for us is a much safer subject to
think about than our love for Him. Nobody can always have devout feelings: and
even if we could, feelings are not principally what God cares about. Christian
Love, either towards God or towards man, is an affair of the will.

-C.S. Lewis

No... It's not a cologne.


Soon I shall return... until then:

Below is an article from Calvary Chapel Chico's Kevin MacDougall. You can veiw the rest of CCChico's website by clicking the title above. It's a bit of a large read, but it's a large subject. Check it out! It will raise your day to the highest level...

God's level.


p.s.: My new cell phone number is 228-3132


We say it all the time, we share it with people, and we rest in the sure hope… we will spend eternity with God.


But do we ever consider the true meaning of that word? If you’re like me, perhaps many of you have grown up spiritually thinking eternity was more like infinity. Even now, as I right click on the word “eternity” with my mouse, one of the synonyms given to me by my computer’s built-in thesaurus is “infinity”. This is strange, since they are not at all the same thing.

“Infinity” speaks of being endless, but “eternity” speaks of being immeasurable. The distinction there may seem subtle, but it’s not just splitting hairs – it makes a difference. Though it is true that eternity and infinity are similar in that they are both ‘endless’, it’s also worth pointing out that eternity alone bears the distinction of being beginning-less as well. “Infinity” is more mathematical. It gives us the picture of something with a beginning that went on forever. But “eternity” is spiritual; it gives us the picture of something we cannot understand – endlessness outside of time.

Outside of time? That’s right… outside of time. Not constrained by time. Not defined by time. Not run on time. Free of time because time is not necessary to the equation of God’s presence and glory.

And this is the part that hurts my head! I can’t picture life or consciousness without TIME. Go ahead, try to do it… you can’t! Time is all we know. We have to get up by a certain time, be ready by a certain time, we spend however much time at work, or school, and then we finish at a certain time and come home for free time with the eventual hope of having enough time to sleep. We make appointments at specific times, and some of us are always on time, but most of us aren’t. We have time set aside for everything we do. Time defines our perception and colors our every experience. But eternity is not time forever, it’s no time at all.

To put it another way, one term (infinity) classifies something within our reality and our scope of understanding, but the other term (eternity) is foreign to our senses by nature. We can’t really understand the full meaning of it. We can talk about it, but in doing so, we might each borrow a line from Job, admitting that the things of eternity are “things too wonderful for me to know” (Job 42:3).

You see, eternity, the hope we cling to and share, is a theological term. And before we can attempt to explore it, we must lay down the groundwork that ultimately, the concept and doctrine of eternity, is, like the God we serve, rooted in Divine mystery. And since we are not Divine, we must realize that we will not be able to completely wrap our heads around it… At least, not in this lifetime. And what that tells us is, we can only explore the wondrous concept of eternity to a point. Mostly, we have to just wait for it. We’ll have to experience it to really know what it’s like.

“For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known.” -1 Corinthians 13:12

So the pursuit of this subject is not so much an intellectually- satisfying one as it is a spiritually-satisfying one. We’re not trying to get to the bottom of this whole eternity thing in order to understand everything about God; we’re exploring it in order to step in to his majesty. We recognize that Divine mystery motivates the heart to worship, and the bigger we let God be in our hearts and in our minds, the more we can rest in Him. It doesn’t question our faith at all, but rather affirms the awesomeness of our God. It brings Him glory, and leaves us to once again agree with Job when he said, “Dominion and awe belong to God” (Job 25:2).

I want a God that inspires me to awe every second. But the moment I define Him and make Him so classifiable that I pull Him into my realm of understanding, I’m doing Him a major disservice. I’m robbing Him of His mystery. If He no longer holds mystery, He no longer holds majesty. But since the Christian faith is rooted in Divine mystery, I need to take every step to embrace the higher truth. I need to make sure I’m embracing the mystical, and honoring God by giving Him His mystery, that I might bask in His majesty.

It’s the same as with the issue of God’s sovereignty and man’s free will. If I can’t accept these two truths as a paradox, it only shows my immaturity at trying to simplify and make it one or the other. God’s bigger than that, and more transcendent.

That said, have you ever stopped to consider what it means to be with God in an eternal sense? It’s a wondrous thought. Norman Geisler, in his book Who Made God, says, “The world did not begin by a creation in time but by a creation of time. But, you may think, if there was no time before time began, what was there? The answer is, eternity. God is eternal, and the only thing prior to time was eternity.” (pg. 28)

Eternity is where we will join God. He declares the end from the beginning because he IS the end and the beginning, the Alpha and Omega, the First and the Last (Rev. 1:8; Isa. 44:6). God sees the whole parade. He is not bound by time. He does not wait. He is the God “who was, and is, and is to come”. He is not those things in sequence, but simultaneously.

When Moses was called to deliver Israel from the hand of Pharaoh, he asked God who he should say had sent him. God’s answer was “I AM that I AM.” The Hebrew for ‘I AM’ is hayah; it is a present and active verb “BE”. That’s God’s name. And Moses’ answer from the Lord was clear: he would tell them, “I AM has sent me to you.” And to quote one of my favorite pastors, Louie Giglio, “That’s terrible grammar, but brilliant theology.

”Only a God named ‘I AM” can be the author of time and the resident of eternity.

That said, I can’t go on to define eternity. Meditating on what it isn’t is about as far as I can go, and where that leaves me is in awe of God, and encouraged by His mystery and majesty. All things considered, the most wonderful thing about God, what makes Him God, is His otherness. And eternity is like God in that respect – it’s something else. Something different. Something beautiful.

Eternity is what we’re living for.

When we die…
we do not enter into INFINITY,
we enter into
We are not conscious of the passing time…
There IS no time.
We cannot run out of time, we are
of time already.
We are not like geometry’s “rays”
with a start point and no end.
When we die, our start point ceases
to dominate our frame of reference.
We expand into all directions
with every perception of our being.
And in all directions, we are majestically, wonderfully, worshipfully…
before the throne of God.

Dare You To Move


Anyway, here is a post from MPBC's old friend Mike Norton. You can check out his billion different websites by clicking the title.

I promise, I will be back soon!

Josh 3:55 Joshua told the people, "Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the LORD will do amazing things among you." (NIV)

You know what we need more than anything today? To get off our rears and make a difference in the world that the Lord has put us in. The Lord has given us the ability and the call to do some great things for him.
We need to forget all the negative backtalk that has oppressed us for so many years. It’s time to simple, get out there and live as if you are saved. Come on; don’t look at me that way. We need to step up to the plate and actually act as if we have the greatest thing going. After all, we do. Jesus died for you and he has given you the ability to be more than you are.

So today, I dare you to move.

Yep, you’ve heard that before. Listen to this excerpt from Switchfoot’s album, Beautiful Letdown. And heed the lyrics.

Welcome to the fallout

Between how it is and how it should be

I dare you to move
I dare you to move
I dare you to lift yourself up off the

I dare you to lift yourself
Lift yourself up off the floor

Mission Statement

Hey guys... First off I would like to say sorry for being gone so long but I have been buried under a pile of homework. The funky-funky people in the college group like me are trying to compose a mission statement. Here it goes;

"Our mission is to make known the gospel of Jesus Christ, to disciple one another in the Word of God, to join together in worship and fellowship, and to minister to our community through witnessing and service."

Our four points of focus are on:

Well anyhoo, tell me what you think! You don't actually have to be in the group to comment so fire away!

I'll be back soon...

1 Praise the Lord!
Praise God in His sanctuary;
Praise Him in the mighty expanse.

Praise Him with resounding cymbals.
6 Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.
Praise the Lord! (Alleluia)

The following is an article written by Pat Mathers of Calvary Chapel Chico. You can view it in it's entirety by clicking on the link below. Posted by Hello

Grace Active -Pat Mathers

The difference between Christianity and all of the other religions out there can be summed up in one five-letter word: GRACE! Grace is the unmerited favor of God. What that means is that we as fallen people can not do anything to earn, work for, or put God in a position where He is obligated to bless us either with salvation or any other spiritual blessing. It is completely of Him. Romans 11: 34-36 says, “For who has known the mind of the LORD? Or who has become His counselor? Or who has first given to Him and it shall be repaid to him? For of Him and through Him and to Him are all things, to whom be glory forever. Amen.” The entire genuine Christian experience has its foundation on the grace that God shows us. 2 Thessalonians 2:16-17 says, “Now may our Lord Jesus Christ Himself, and our God and Father, who has loved us and given us everlasting consolation and good hope by grace, comfort your hearts and establish you in every good word and work.” The sufficiency of God’s grace for our daily lives flows from the infinite power and goodness of God.

Our future hope of heaven is based on the grace of God. We can be thankful and rest in the confidence that since God has shown us grace He will complete the work He began (Philippians 1:6). Romans 5:2 says that we stand in the grace of God and rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. This means that we live in a position of grace now knowing that we are saved and will remain saved so that we will see the glory of God when he brings us to His heaven. Our hope of heaven is in the grace of God. In Ephesians 2:4-7, the Apostle Paul writes, “But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.”

Grace is found in Jesus (1 Cor. 1:4, 2 Cor. 9:13-15). Paul says in 2 Corinthians 8:9 that in order for us to experience the spiritual riches of Christ He had to become poor. His humiliation on the Cross, through His blood, secured for believers these riches that are only found in Jesus (Eph. 1:6-7).

This grace in our lives causes us to praise God with thanksgiving. Second Corinthians 4:15 says, “For all things are for your sakes, that grace, having spread through the many, may cause thanksgiving to abound to the glory of God.” Peter teaches in his first epistle that God’s grace is our motivation toward holiness (1 Peter 1:13-17). When we are struggling we can go to the Lord to receive from Him grace to help us (Hebrews 4:16). Paul went to the Lord in prayer on three occasions to ask for alleviation of his trial and the Lord responded that His grace was sufficient (2 Cor. 11:7-10). Finally, let me encourage you with the same words with which Paul encouraged Timothy: “You therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.” We need to live lives of confident strength as Christians. We do this through the reliance on all of the grace that God has given to us, is giving to us, and the grace that is yet future. As we go through life, we can face all things with confidence, hope, and praise, bringing glory to God all because of that five-letter word, GRACE!

I just got kicked out of my English class! I can't enroll until I can pay my fees from spring. I've talked to all my other teachers about it and they are generous enough to let me stay until I can get things sorted out. Unfortunately for me this was not true for my former English teacher. In his words...


What am I, the weakest link or something?
Now I have to find an open class and beg to be let in. Please pray for me. I am so glad that I just found this verse about 5 minutes ago. I can really use it.:

1 Cor 14:33

"For God is not a God of disorder but of peace."

what a day

Hey everyone, I hope everyone is well today. Today's post is one of the best in the Bible... Thank you Lord.

Psalm 23:

1 A Psalm of David. The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.

4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me;
thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil;

my cup runneth over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.

Be in prayer for our nation today and remember how big God is. He is sovereign. May our leaders be directed to do God's will in this nation. Go out and do something for someone else today and let them know that God loves them. Please pray for my church as well as one of our most cherished members passed away last night. Pray for our church family as well as his. Thanks guys.

Napoleon Dynamite

OK guys... I usually hate most movies. Well, hate is a strong term. Let's use... "Wish I had no eyes after I see them and would like to have the last 2 hours of my life back." But Lo and Behold I have found quite possibly one of the funniest movies I have ever seen. It is called "Napoleon Dynamite" and it is sick! The best part about it is that it's clean! That's right kiddies 100% squeaky! No angry cuss words or things you wish you've never seen. Just tears-in-your-eyes hilarity. The wonderful life lesson of a nerd helping his new friend with a school election all here on the big screen. Check out the yahoo movies site by clicking on the title above.

And on to our next topic:

John 1:45-50

Philip found Nathanael and said to him, "We have found him of whom Moses in the Law and also the prophets wrote, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph."
Nathanael said to him, "Can anything good come out of Nazareth?" Philip said to him, "Come and see."
Jesus saw Nathanael coming toward him and said of him, "Behold, an Israelite indeed, in whom there is no deceit!"
Nathanael said to him, "How do you know me?" Jesus answered him, "Before Philip called you, when you were under the fig tree, I saw you."
Nathanael answered him, "Rabbi, you are the Son of God! You are the King of Israel!"
Jesus answered him, "Because I said to you, 'I saw you under the fig tree,' do you believe? You will see greater things than these."
Not quite sure why I put this up. That's ok. God does.
See ya soon!

Mr. Clean

Hey everybody!!! One question... Is anyone out there? Someone respond if you're reading this. Rachel is here, but that's about it. I miss you all
= ( boo hoo

(that means I'm sad)

Moving right along, here we go.

Jer 31:31 "Behold, the days are coming, declares the LORD, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and the house of Judah, 32 not like the covenant that I made with their fathers on the day when I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt, my covenant that they broke, though I was their husband, declares the LORD. 33 But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, declares the LORD: I will put my law within them, and I will write it on their hearts. And I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

Eze 36:22 "Therefore say to the house of Israel, Thus says the Lord GOD: It is not for your sake, O house of Israel, that I am about to act, but for the sake of my holy name, which you have profaned among the nations to which you came. 23 And I will vindicate the holiness of my great name, which has been profaned among the nations, and which you have profaned among them. And the nations will
know that I am the LORD, declares the Lord GOD, when through you I vindicate my holiness before their eyes.
24 I will take you from the nations and gather you from all the countries and bring you into your own land. 25 I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you shall be clean from all your uncleanliness, and from all your idols I will cleanse you. 26 And I will give you a new heart, and a new spirit I will put within you. And I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. 27 And I will put my Spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes and be careful to obey my

God is so cool. He makes us HIS people and no matter what, one way or another we will act like it. He stakes His reputation on us. Ouch that hurts even me. So... like it has been said. Get a spine,
it's time to shine!

A Sneak Peek and a Preview

HEY!! IT'S ME!!!

I am back...

Camping was sooooooo sweet! I'll tell you guys more about that later.

And with that... here is a preveiw of what is to come at the rally...

of course I have to use scripture:

2Ti 2:1 You then, my child, be strengthened by the grace that is in Christ Jesus,
2Ti 2:2 and what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.
2Ti 2:3 Share in suffering as a good soldier of Christ Jesus.
2Ti 2:4 No soldier gets entangled in civilian pursuits, since his aim is to please the one who enlisted him.
2Ti 2:5 An athlete is not crowned unless he competes according to the rules.
2Ti 2:6 It is the hard-working farmer who ought to have the first share of the crops.
2Ti 2:7 Think over what I say, for the Lord will give you understanding in everything.
2Ti 2:8 Remember Jesus Christ, risen from the dead, the offspring of David, as preached in my gospel,
2Ti 2:9 for which I am suffering, bound with chains as a criminal. But the word of God is not bound!
2Ti 2:10 Therefore I endure everything for the sake of the elect, that they also may obtain the salvation that is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory.
2Ti 2:11 The saying is trustworthy, for: If we have died with him, we will also live with him;
2Ti 2:12 if we endure, we will also reign with him; if we deny him, he also will deny us;
2Ti 2:13 if we are faithless, he remains faithful-- for he cannot deny himself.
2Ti 2:14 Remind them of these things, and charge them before God not to quarrel about words, which does no good, but only ruins the hearers.
2Ti 2:15 Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.
2Ti 2:16 But avoid irreverent babble, for it will lead people into more and more ungodliness,
2Ti 2:17 and their talk will spread like gangrene. Among them are Hymenaeus and Philetus,
2Ti 2:18 who have swerved from the truth, saying that the resurrection has already happened. They are upsetting the faith of some.
2Ti 2:19 But God's firm foundation stands, bearing this seal: "The Lord knows those who are his," and, "Let everyone who names the name of the Lord depart from iniquity."
2Ti 2:20 Now in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver but also of wood and clay, some for honorable use, some for dishonorable.
2Ti 2:21 Therefore, if anyone cleanses himself from what is dishonorable, he will be a vessel for honorable use, set apart as holy, useful to the master of the house, ready for every good work.
2Ti 2:22 So flee youthful passions and pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace, along with those who call on the Lord from a pure heart.
2Ti 2:23 Have nothing to do with foolish, ignorant controversies; you know that they breed quarrels.
2Ti 2:24 And the Lord's servant must not be quarrelsome but kind to everyone, able to teach, patiently enduring evil,
2Ti 2:25 correcting his opponents with gentleness. God may perhaps grant them repentance leading to a knowledge of the truth,
2Ti 2:26 and they may escape from the snare of the devil, after being captured by him to do his will.

As for the College Group, we are looking at doing something on Saturday September 11. More than likely we will be goiong to Old Town Sacramento. More to come...

He is coming with the clouds. Posted by Hello


Today's topic is BIG!!!

Sorry it's been so long guys But now... I am BACK!


Take a while to think when you read these verses... because they are BIG.

Isa 6:1 In the year that King Uzziah died I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up; and the train of his robe filled the temple.
Isa 6:2 Above him stood the seraphim. Each had six wings: with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew.
Isa 6:3 And one called to another and said: "Holy, holy, Holy is the LORD of hosts; the whole earth is full of his glory!" Isa 6:4 And the foundations of the thresholds shook at the voice of him who called, and the house was filled with smoke.
Isa 6:5 And I said: "Woe is me! For I am lost; for I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips; for my eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts!"

Rev 1:4 From John to the seven churches in Asia. May grace and peace be yours from the one who is, who was, and who is coming, from the seven spirits who are in front of his throne,
Rev 1:5 and from Jesus Christ, the witness, the faithful one, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler over the kings of the earth. To the one who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood
Rev 1:6 and has made us a kingdom, priests for his God and Father, be glory and power forever and ever! Amen.
Rev 1:7 Look! He is coming in the clouds. Every eye will see him, even those who pierced him, and all the tribes of the earth will mourn because of him. So be it! Amen.
Rev 1:8 "I am the Alpha and the Omega," declares the Lord God, the one who is, who was, and who is coming, the Almighty.

How Great Thou Art

O Lord, my God,
When I in awesome wonder;
Consider all the worlds Thy hands have made.
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder, Thy power throughout the universe displayed.

Then sings my soul, my Savior God to Thee; How great Thou art! How great Thou art! Then sings my soul, my Savior God to Thee; How great Thou art! How great Thou art!

When through the woods and forest glades I wander;
And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees;
When I look down from lofty mountain grandeur,
And hear the brook and feel the gentle breeze.

And when I think of God, His Son not sparing;
Sent Him to die, I scarce can take it in,
That on the cross, my burden gladly bearing;
He bled and died to take away my sin.

When Christ shall come, with shout of acclamation;
And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart!
Then I shall bow, in humble adoration,
And there proclaim, my God, how great Thou art!

Alright... I Love You Guys

The Lost Sheep

Sorry I've been gone so long everybody! But now... I'm back! Check out the links on the sidebar. Get ready for another Young Adult meeting soon. Hey! How about a name for this little endeavor of ours? Send me your idears. Anyway, moving along...
Most of us have heard this passage before, but it is always good to be reminded from time to time how awesome and loving our God truly is:

Luk 15:1 Now the tax collectors and sinners were all drawing near to hear him.
Luk 15:2 And the Pharisees and the scribes grumbled, saying, "This man receives sinners and eats with them."
Luk 15:3 So he told them this parable:
Luk 15:4 "What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he has lost one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the open country, and go after the one that is lost, until he finds it?
Luk 15:5 And when he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing.
Luk 15:6 And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and his neighbors, saying to them, 'Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep that was lost.'
Luk 15:7 Just so, I tell you, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance.

Your friend and brother in Christ,

Psalm 121


This verse just rocks:
1 I will lift up my eyes to the mountains;
   From where shall my help come?
2 My help comes from the Lord
   Who made heaven and earth.
3 He will not allow your foot to slip;
   He who keeps you will not slumber.
4 Behold, He who keeps Israel
   will not slumber of sleep.
5 The Lord is your keeper
   The sun will not smite you by day
   nor the moon by night.
7 The Lord will protect (keep) you from all evil;
   He will keep your soul.
8 The Lord will guard your coming out and
   your coming in
   From this time forth and forever.

Stagnant Water

This past week I have been led to do some pretty random new things. I think it all came together last night at a local college fellowship. This was the passage of study.
Mark 5:24
24; And he went off with him; and a large crowd was 
following Him and pressing in on Him.
25 A woman who had a hemorrhage for twelve years.
26 and had endured much at the hands of many physicians,
and had spent all that she had and was not helped at all, but rather had grown worse-
27 after hearing about Jesus, she came up in the crowd behind Him and touched His cloak.
28 For she thought, "If I just touch his garments, I will get well."
29 Immediately the flow of her blood was dried up; and she
felt in her body that she was healed of her affliction
30 Immediately Jesus, perceiving in himself that the power proceeding from
Him had gone forth, turned around in the crowd and said, "Who touched my garments?"
31 And His disciples said to Him, "You see the crowd pressing in on
You, and You say,' Who touched Me?'"
32 And He looked around to see the woman who had done this.
33 But the woman fearing and trembling, aware of what had happened
to her, came and fell down before Him and told Him the whole truth.
34 And He said to her, "Daughter, your faith has made
you well; go in peace and be healed of your affliction.".
So what does it all mean? This past week I have been compelled to fast from meat but when anyone would ask why, I didn't know what to say except, "I dunno" or the Sunday School answer (whatever that is). But what God has no doubt been trying to do is an all too familiar routine to Him. Shouting at me, "HEY!! WAKE UP!!! LIFE WITH ME IS NOT A ROUTINE!!!" It is unfortunate (to say the very least) that we can get so complacent and fall into our routine of "God life" that we forget who God really is and how he can work in our life. We sit back and say "Oh praise the Lord!" but do we really mean it? Are we really praising?
I find it sad that this has been on my heart about my life.
I feel like part of the crowd, crowding around Jesus pressing in on Him. I'm surrounded by Christian music, coming to church, praying, reading, you know... "Church Life". 
Why does it feel like a job to me?
I've lost that connection, that relationship that God wants with me.
Water that collects in tires, swamps, or stays calm becomes stagnant. Mosquitoes lay eggs in this still, stagnant water. Mold and algae collect. This water may not have to move around at all but it becomes dirty, useless.
By contrast, have you ever noticed that it is harder to swim in a flowing river, but the water is clean and pure? 
The crowd presses in on Jesus, but one woman reaches out in faith. I want to reach out. I'm tired of being stagnant water. I want to fall into the River of Life.
Psalm 40:
1 I waited patiently (intently) for the Lord; And He inclined me and heard my cry.
2 He brought me up out of the pit of destruction, out of the miry clay,
And He set my feet upon a rock making my footsteps firm.
3 He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God; many will see and fear
And will trust in the Lord.
Don't forget the Young Adult group tomorrow at 5pm. If you can come please call me at 530-864-2151
Much Love through our Savior Jesus
