That’s The God I Love

I thought of this post recently and did not realize that it had been 8 years since I shared it. My how time flies! Anyhow, I still feel the same now as I did back then concerning the incarnation. Jesus is truly wonderful!

What if God were to come to earth as a law enforcement officer?  I’m sure I would have the utmost of respect for him, being taught at a young age to have respect for those in authority. I’ve no doubt He would do a wonderful job at keeping law and order, but I wonder what kind of relationship I would have with Him. Somehow, it seems like it would be stiff and cool, and I think I would have a hard time feeling like it wasn’t “official business” every time we met.

What if God decided to come to earth as a superhero? Considering the fact that He is all knowing and all powerful, I’d expect Him to be a superhero that is unequaled.  He would be there to rescue me from the most dire circumstances and always in the nick of time. I’m afraid I…

Luisa’s Baptism

  1. Yesterday was a happy day for Luisa and our church as we witnessed her being baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of her sins. For me, it never gets old to see someone getting baptized or receiving the Holy Ghost. There is nothing like this precious Acts 2:38 new birth experience! I’m looking forward to seeing what God will do in Luisa’s life as she continues to grow in Him!!

The speaker for the anniversary services at Alamo City Apostolic Church was Pastor Joel Booker of Rialto, Ca. He did an outstanding job of preaching the Word and walking in the Holy Ghost. If you’re interested in hearing his message that was preached on Sunday “And The Waters Prevailed”(I may have gotten the title wrong, but it was something like that.), you can click on the following link. If you want a greater understanding and appreciation of baptism in Jesus’ name, this is for you.

Pastor Connell(my hubby)teaching at theological seminar on Saturday morning

 

This seminar started very early for a Saturday(8 a.m), but the early birds that attended received a whole lot more than worms through the in depth teaching of Pastor Kelly Nix and Pastor Pete Connell.

Someone told me afterwards that my husband was so smart. I got to thinking about this later. I’m sure you’ve heard the saying that opposites attract? It seems to be true in a lot of cases. My husband is an extrovert, and I’m an introvert. So, if my husband is so smart, well, I guess I’m……………………………….!       🙂

Seriously though, my husband put so much time and effort into preparing for this. There were many nights beforehand when I would wake up at 2 or 3 in the morning, and he would still be in his study. I don’t know how he did it, but he did. If you would like to hear the theological seminar you can click on the same link above, go to the track icon and select ICAT seminar Pastor Kelly Nix, Pastor Pete Connell.

 

 

San Antonio Trip(Part 1)

This past week, our family was blessed to be able to go to San Antonio Texas for the purposes of

-attending Jen’s graduation from ICAT(Institute of Conservative Apostolic Theology)

-being with my hubby/Jen and Paul’s dad as he taught a theological seminar

-celebrating anniversary services with Alamo City Apostolic Church in San Antonio, Texas

I have some pictures(although they are not very good)that I hope to share soon. I tried posting some of them, but was having difficulties, first on my laptop, then on my phone. (There is a part of me that feels like screaming right now.) I’m afraid I’m somewhat of a technological dingbat, and will need to enlist the help of my son.

Stayed tuned for more…………………………………..hopefully soon!

Update-Through a rigorous distance learning program(my son instructing me through texts), I now can post some pictures.

Jennifer is giving her graduation speech. I’m so proud of her. She worked hard on her capstone project. It about done her in, but bless her heart, she finished it!

This is Dr.(Brother)Shane Milazzo addressing and admonishing the graduates and all who were present to “dig deeper”. He did an excellent job.

 

 

Jen and Paul are standing with Sister Garcia. We were honored to stay at the beautiful home of Brother and Sister Garcia, and I hope to share more about this wonderful couple in a future post.img_3234

 

Time is running short for me now, but I just want to say, “Congratulations, Jen!” I am proud of your accomplishments and so thankful to God for the fine, young lady you have become.

Fat Bones Monday

” The light of the eyes rejoiceth the heart: and a good report maketh the bones fat.” Proverbs 15:30

This sweet 10 year old girl received the Holy Ghost this past Friday night. If the angels rejoice over one sinner that repents, (Lk. 15:7,10) I wonder what they do when that repentant sinner receives the precious gift of the Holy Ghost. I’m thankful and still rejoicing today.👏🏻🙌🏻

H.O.O.F. 2016

This past Saturday our church had the opportunity to participate in the Heart Of Oakley Festival, which was held in the downtown area of our city. We had a booth where we gave out free bottled water, made balloon animals for kids, passed out church invitations and literature and offered people a chance to win a $50 gift card to a local restaurant by filling out a brief survey. Here are a few pics from the event.


These are set up photos. The triangular thing at the end of the table is a lollipop tree. Kids could pick out a lollipop, and if they pulled one out with blue marker on the stick, they would win a $5 gift card to McDonalds.

Some of our young people stood in a shady spot across the street from the booth and made balloon animals to give away along with invitations to children’s church.


It was a super hot day in the high 90’s. Our booth was just a few yards away from the city water fountain. I had chugged a bunch of cold water but was still roasting. I saw children running under the fountain and getting soaked. “Should I?” I privately asked myself. My inner child was screaming, “Do it!” Hmm, didn’t Jesus say, “Except ye become as little children…..”  Okay, I didn’t really think that, but I did make the decision to go ahead and get wet. It felt so good! 😅

Although it was a hot day, it was also fun, and I know God blesses our efforts. I was proud of everyone who came out and worked hard. What we do for the kingdom is not in vain.
