I have always liked movies, but now one must either make me laugh or make me think, otherwise it feels like a waste of time. But I did enjoy one titled "The Longest Ride" (2015). It's a love story within a love story and involves a bull rider who has a goal regardless of the risk. Also liked one called "Dumb and Dumber To" (2014). I've always thought Jim Carey to be hilarious...although it seems they have to put dark stuff in it to make people laugh. I do believe laughing is good for the health....as Proverbs calls it a medicine. What does that have to do with this? Probably nothing.
When I first came to this site (2007), there were a few sharing the good, the bad and the ugly here. Eventually they all left...and even I departed for awhile but came back. Now it seems I am the only one who keeps yapping here. The best one I remember sharing as I do was Nathan, but it seems he was steered another direction. Besides me, Ponyfiddle has been around here for a long time, but only shares rarely, and that is ok. I really appreciate Mark maintaining this site and want to say thank you sir.
I was born and raised in church (my dad was a preacher) but he passed away early in life at 27. I have been reading the Bible since I was 4 years old. If I had it to do over again, I wouldn't change a thing. My mom raised me right and now she also went to be with the Lord in 2009. Sometimes when I deal with raising children, I have to look back on how my mom did things with me, and steered me in the right direction. By the way when I was about 8 years old, I was playing the mandeline and singing specials in church. A song I did way back then I've recently recalled and practice. It is entitled "If I Gained the World, but Lost the Savior". Still so true today! Finally I took piano lessons at about age 10 but didn't have a passion for it. However I love to hear good piano. Instead I took up the guitar at age 15 and still play it to this day!
Well enough history for now. I wanted to share just one more on the Law of Christ. Jesus fulfilled the Law of Moses, and then had Paul to explain a lot of it in detail. God has always required faith. God has always required obedience. Jesus just showed us how to do it through LOVE, rather than just following the letter of the law with all those messy and bloody worship sessions required of old time. God's way now might be as humble as a kiss. Please watch and enjoy this video and thanks for reading:
