When polls are taken they still indicate 
that most people in the world say they are Christians.  
But in this group of people there are three different kinds.

The first group is the largest and they are
Man-Made Christians.
Most have been born into a Christian home.
They may go to church or
have been baptized
and they are told 
You are a Christian.

The second group are
Self-Made Christians.
They are honest, moral, work hard,
do charitable works, 
and are good citizens.
They think they are good enough
and do enough good works to
earn their way into heaven.

The smallest group of Christians are
God-Made Christians.
This group comes to God
knowing they are sinners
and can't do enough good works or be good enough
to get to heaven on their own.
 They believe that God loved them so much that 
He sent His Son Jesus
to die on the cross to pay for their sins
and rose again with the power to forgive their sins.
 They have put their trust in Jesus
and God saved them from hell and made 
each of them His child.
They now have a home in heaven when they die.

Ephesians 2: 8 and 9
For by grace are ye saved through faith; 
and not of yourselves: It is the gift of God.
Not of works, lest any man should boast.

Romans 10:13
For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

John 3:16 
For God so loved the world
that He gave is only begotten son
that whosoever believeth in Him
should not perish but have everlasting life.
I am a God-Made Christian. : )
A blessed Sunday to you all.
Jesus loves you.
happyone :)

Last night while we were all eating supper 
outside on their deck before we began playing Mexican Train 
this rainbow appeared in the sky.

Didn't get up until 6:45 this morning.  Slept in a bit because we got home late last night.  Had a fun time playing Mexican Train and being with our friends.  : )

This morning it was 65 degrees and cloudy when I headed out for my walk at 7:00.

Walked around the industrial park and then up the road in the picture.  It ends in a dead end so turned around and walked back again.

Made a loop around town and one of the cemeteries and the ball park loop.

There were a lot of people riding bicycles through town because some a bike riding event was taking place.

Saw Lee riding his bike and he stopped to say hi.  He always gives me a couple of those round red and white peppermint candies that melt in your mouth when he sees me.  I've never seen him without them.

George who I see once in town stopped for a little chat too.  He showed me picture of his grandkids.

The usual bunnies were around again by the cemetery and a few were by the ball park too.

Walked 6.3 miles.
Found another dime.  This is the month for dimes!!

 This morning I got busy baking some chocolate chip cookies.  Ken had a train club from Cumberland stop by to see his train layout this afternoon.  One of the members is Bob, who is a neighbor who lives behind us.  Everyone time visitors come to see the trains there are cookies for them.  Some people come just for the cookies. : )  Just kidding.  They stayed 2 1/2 hours.
If you would like to see pictures of Ken's layout there is a link to it, Ken's Trains, at the bottom of the page after the posts.

I got the lawn mowed this morning.  Three of my neighbors were mowing their lawns at the same time too.

Another sunny afternoon in the 70's and I continued with my weeding. Then sat on the porch and read for a while.

A happy day to you.
happyone : )
Kindness is just love
with its work boots on.

68 degrees this morning, cloudy and looked like rain but soon the sun was shining.

Wasn't sure where I wanted to walk this morning when I stepped outside but my feet took me around the Farm Loop.   I'm glad I went that way because it was beautiful and peaceful.

Saw a few bunnies, a couple of deer and a ground hog along the way.
An older gentleman passed me riding his bicycle up the hill.

The corn is now about 18 inches tall and looks nice and healthy.  We've gotten a good amount of sun and rain so far.
Back in town I saw Kathy again as I made a loop around town and the ball park.

Walked 6.4 miles.

It's been a while since Ken had breakfast with Edd and then went to the sale (auction) so it was nice he got to do that this morning.  He also stopped at Walmart on the way home and did the shopping this week. 

I made some macaroni salad for this evening.  We are going to meet up with some friends at Tricia and Randy's house for supper and an evening of playing Mexican Train.

Took a little walk to the bank and on the way back stopped in at the library to say hi to Connie.

Spent a couple of hours out in the front yard this afternoon doing some more weeding.  Seems like it never gets done but I don't mind and it is nice to be outside on a nice day.  It was in the 70's and sunny with a bit of a breeze.  It clouded up at one point and the rain came pouring down.  Rained for about 10 minutes and then the sun came back out. 

Better go and get ready for our evening out.
A happy day to you.
happyone : )

Here is a picture of me and my daughter Debbi in 1982.  
She was 8 years old.
