So today I went to the local baptist church after a few sundays of absence. A lot of things ran through my mind during the course of the service. 

it started with the children's message- Today the lady that spoke held up two signs: one that said DANGER: KEEP OUT, and one that said WELCOME. She the proceeded to ask the children where each sign would be found. For the danger keep out sign, many of the children answered: construction sites, military bases, bedrooms, etc. For the welcome sign they said as follows: Grandparents home, Their homes, classroom, cities (the welcome tooo....). Then she asked what sign should be posted in front of our church?- It got me thinking. What sign is in front of our church? Are we welcoming people into the fold or are we keeping them way or steering them in another direction due to the large warning sign posted in front. If the latter what can we do to change?

On to the message
Today pastor spoke about our values and what we hold as important in our lives. He asked who or what dictates the values in our lives- He said that many even say that america is currently in what we like to call a value war or moral dilemma.  He started off his message by telling us of the great wall of china about how it was built to keep out invaders and it was tall, wide and strong. Yet there were three successful invasions of china despite the wall. He then explained that it wasn't the walls fault that the invasion happened, the invaders didn't break the wall to get through, they didn't climb over it or even walk around it. They got through by bribing a gatekeeper to let them through. No matter how strong the wall is it couldn't withstand the lapse in judgement or moral failings of a gatekeeper. 

The passage that the message was derived from was Phillipians 3: 7-11

7But whatever was to my profit I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. 8What is more, I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them rubbish, that I may gain Christ 9and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ—the righteousness that comes from God and is by faith. 10I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, 11and so, somehow, to attain to the resurrection from the dead." -via

he then asked what things made up our values and listed a few that might: tv, friends, education, family, self proclamation

As a christian where should our values come from?- They should come from the love we have for God as paul states in phillipians; everything else amounts to garbage. Lets re-focus our lives and set our values and priorities straight.

The final thing that caught my attention from the sunday service was an old woman who gave a testimony at the very end. She testified about her grandson who was arrested the past week for doing something wrong, she stood up and thanked the church for their prayers and also warned the church to be careful for their action for they are responsible for them and to seek guidance from God in all things. - It made me marvel at her courage and her willingness to trust the church with such a delicate matter. Growing up in the malayalee penticostal church one of the first things I have come to learn is that the church is LAST place you go with your personal problems, GOD is the first- but the church is filled with people who are more then willing to rip apart your delicate situation and make it unbearable to survive. I think that this woman, this church is an example that we need to follow- When believers come with problems, the church is a hospital which DEF. needs to be taught a thing or two about HIPAA. Its not a media center to be made public what happens there or is said there needs to be prayed for and made victorious and no laughed at for week-ness. We are all only a step away from falling, God's Grace is what keeps us standing. Lets try to become better at helping and welcoming others into the church and praying for them without making them into a showpiece. Thanks.

I woke up this morning unusually excited! or happy I guess. I have been wanting a chalk board for a while now so today was the day that I was going to make that happen. Apparently the local wal-mart does not carry chalk boards so I decide to go to a local teacher supply 8x12 size green chalk board (the only kind they had) cost me 6.50$ (womp-womp). She then told me she could special order a chalk board for me, so i got my hopes again and went to the catalog. EVERYTHING was overpriced ranging from 125$-400$ (sad). So I buy the small chalk-board and go to wal-mart again in search of something better. And then I decide that if i cant buy it ready made I am going to make it! THATS right I made a chalk board! This involved me buying a can of chalkboard spray paint from wal-mart, a stop at lowes for a piece of flat wood- which i would use as the board. And thus began the project. With some help i sprayed the paint (two coats) over the board and waited for it to dry to produce a valid board!- IT WORKED!!! yay me.

Other Adventures- Although I don't normally voluntarily go inside stores like lowes without a purpose. I was amused at the paint aisle. (needless to say I stole several paint samples ...I am very attracted to color). Hopefully the samples will provide inspiration!.

What projects have you started? Ne you would like to share? Leave a post!

Years Back a dear friend sent me this puzzle, at that time I was much younger and I wanted to prove myself. I started it but had no idea how to solve or where to begin, it was daunting. A couple of years back I randomly thought of it and I called up my friend and asked if he had solved it yet- he replied that he had not and so I proclaimed that on that day we would solve it. AND SO we did. =)  I am going to post the original puzzle here for you- see if you can solve it. Email me or post your answers!

  1. There are five houses.
  2. The Englishman lives in the red house.
  3. The Spaniard owns the dog.
  4. Coffee is drunk in the green house.
  5. The Ukrainian drinks tea.
  6. The green house is immediately to the right of the ivory house.
  7. The Old Gold smoker owns snails.
  8. Kools are smoked in the yellow house.
  9. Milk is drunk in the middle house.
  10. The Norwegian lives in the first house.
  11. The man who smokes Chesterfields lives in the house next to the man with the fox.
  12. Kools are smoked in the house next to the house where the horse is kept. (should be "... in a house ...", see Discussion section)
  13. The Lucky Strike smoker drinks orange juice.
  14. The Japanese smokes Parliaments.
  15. The Norwegian lives next to the blue house.
Now, who drinks water? Who owns the zebra?

Hint:In the interest of clarity, it must be added that each of the five houses is painted a different color, and their inhabitants are of different national extractions, own different pets, drink different beverages and smoke different brands of American cigarettes. In statement 6, right refers to the reader's right.
