Book Merge

I feared when Peter set Melody's books in order, he would not have enough room for all of his. Yet when his work was complete, there was ample room for both! ~Es

Peter said, "All your books are here, so you won't have any distractions!" ~M

You are a bridegroom of blood to me.

Here's the link to David's teaching:
The sign of the covenant was rejected by Zipporah,
God was about to put Moses to death because
he was renigging on his responsibility.

Baby Grace

From two years of age, when Dinah carried 
her newborn brother, Victor, out the front door, 
we had to keep an eye on Dinah because 
she loves babies.
A woman giving birth to a child has pain 
because her time has come; 
but when her baby is born she forgets the anguish 
because of her joy that 
a child is born into the world. ~John 16:21

Auntie Melody and Gma. delight in 
Dinah's long awaited child.

Some months before Dustin came into our world, Dinah asked girls entering the Bakersfield abortion clinic if they would let her adopt their child, to no avail. 

Just 13 months after their wedding day, God has granted the desire of Dinah's heart.

Courtship is a time for a girl to answer, "Do I respect this guy enough to follow him?" and a young man to evaluate, "Can this girl follow me as I follow Christ?" It is a time to read and discuss what we believe. When courtship is skipped or rushed through to get to engagement, it can make life together difficult. Courtship involves parental approval, accountability and blessing in evaluating whether someone is right and learning to work through things together.

There are many responsibilities a man can hand off to her, but theology is not one. Theology is a life and death issue.  If she cannot follow him, he should not marry her.  If they are not able to learn and grow and stretch, it could be trouble long haul.

 When men are denied dominion at home, in church and culture, what is left for them is an artificial domination in sports or toys.
