The Robin


A few weeks ago my brother was outside when he heard strange noises coming from a bush. Being the ever curious one, he set out to investigate. He found this Robin trapped. Some string was tied around it's leg and had snagged onto a branch.

Collin freed the R0bin, snapped a picture with his cell and then let her go.

When I later saw the picture and heard the story I thought it was another fun story about wildlife.

I was going to post the pic and tell you all about the rescue... but never got around to it.
Then the other day some problems came up and I thought to myself, "Argh! I am trapped by this!" And the Robin came to mind.
The Robin was trapped, and trying to free herself- but her efforts only entangled her further. It wasn't until my brother found her and set her loose that she was free.

I felt trapped by the problems, and was indeed making a fine mess of it on my own. Thinking of the Robin made me realize- I too couldn't get out of this alone!
So, I turned to my Redeemer. The Lord was good, and He "freed" me.

I have trouble with.... Worrying. I panic and make a fine mess of things. lol. Many young ladies tell me they suffer the same affliction.

I know the Lord is in Control of every situation- but I need to make this "head knowledge" into "heart knowledge".

Just thought I would share this with all of you! Finals are next week then I am on break till the fall. I still can't believe the semester is almost over!!

God bless,

I Love Photography ;)

I see things everywhere that some people don't notice...
like a heart shape on a wooden door.

Or in a window...

A crack on the door post...

On wallpaper...

Even on the deck.


:)
Must be because I am in love or something... why else?

LOL.

Hope this gave you a smile!!

God bless,
Rebecca

Sword Sunday

Dr. Shelton Smith, of Sword of the Lord came to visit our church this past Sunday!

video
We had 8 baptisms that morning PRAISE THE LORD!
I edited my video of it, and added nice music... I highly encourage you to watch it!

At the evening we had a special commissioning service for our youth pastor. He is leaving to take over a church in another State.

The youth group sang his favorite hymn at the reception later on.
"It is Well With my Soul"

We will all miss him and his family, and our prayers go with him!

Bible Conference

My church held it's annual Spring Bible Conference this past week!
Services every night and chapels everyday!


We were treated to some wonderful singing by several sacred music groups and solos as well. Both by our own members and a visiting Pastor.

And of course, good old fashioned Congregational singing! My mom is on the right...and Justin's family is standing in the middle of this pic!


The church was packed every service!

My little brother,

and another little brother. I must say he was very quiet during that service.
;)

The best one we sang was "Heaven Came Down and Glory Filled My Soul,"
Everyone sang their best!

This one also was simply beautiful!

On the last day I was able to attend the Chapel meetings,
the gentleman singing is my Mission's teacher at the night college!

My pastor!! :)

Pastor James God, he preached some great sermons!!

The College Choir!

Pastor Moore, he sang for us every service!

God has blessed Pastor Moore with a voice to sing His praise!

"We need another picture Rebecca?"
"Of course! One can never have too many pictures!!!"
"Ok..."

What a good sport to cooperate with the wanna-be photographer!!

Pastor Moore sang this very special song from the 1950s, my pastor requested it. There were 7 verses I think, this is the last one!
