2011- Here We Go!

As you get ready to move into twenty eleven, there are some things you can do to better facilitate crossing over. First of all remember that whatever you face no matter how impossible it might look, God always has a specifically, tailor made plan for your life. 
Here are some key things to meditate on... Remember that God has a plan for me. Jeremiah 29:11 says; “I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.”
Also know that you can find God’s plan for your life, by walking in faith. “We live by faith, not by sight.” according to 2 Corinthians 5:7.
The Bible declares that you and I have the ability to hear God’s plan… So be available to hear and obey God's voice this new year, because some great things are being released that were held up by the enemy, but he can't stop them any more...
Two more Bible verses that I will mention here are...
If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking.” James 1:5
I listen carefully to what God the Lord is saying, for he speaks peace to his faithful people. But let them not return to their foolish ways. Surely his salvation is near to those who fear him, so our land will be filled with his glory.” Psalm 85:8-9
Blessed New Year to you... Karl

My Three Sons Coming!

Train up a child in the way he should go, even when he is old he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6 NAS

Over the years Kathi and I have had the privilege to raise up 4 wonderful children. We certainly didn't always know what we were doing or what to do, but our trust was in God's Word. Just knowing that God had already figured out how to parent gave us the faith and resolve to do it. Were we perfect parents? No way, but that's OK... the key is to keep love and forgiveness close in the home, and keep God's Word even closer... 

Well coming up this Sunday at our church Faith City, I will be sharing along with my three sons Andrew, Jason, and Jeremy all about growing up together... the good, bad, and maybe even the ugly... Come out and join us this Sunday at 10:00am. You might enjoy our sharing time and may you to find confidence through the Word of God for every area of your life... Be blessed friends, oh and Merry Christmas,  Karl

Family Together

Here is my wonderful family together... from left to right... Chris, Tabitha, and Braydon Blue; then Jason, Michelle holding Victoria, and Amy; then Me and Kathi at top; Aliyah Blue is standing at bottom... then Bianca holding Sophia; then again at top my oldest son Andrew holding Aiden, Kristen, with Ethan standing down behind Bianca; then my grandson Jonathon with his new wife Alyssa; and ending it up my youngest son Jeremy with wife Crystal... We are so blessed...
 Merry Christmas to you and your family! What is so special about Christmas? This is when God invaded earth. It was big news when man first landed on the moon and walked there. It's even bigger news when God landed on the earth and walked here! That's what Christmas is about! We celebrate that God came to earth to redeem everyone that will humbly receive Gods wonderful gift, the Lord Jesus... So from Kathi and me and all our family, we confess a wonderful CHRISTMAS season over you and yours, in Jesus name! Blessings... Karl

In something for 30 years, can't shake it!

That's right, I have been in a love relationship with a brown eyed fox named Kathi Lee... so I composed her a poem.

She loves me, respects me, and this is for sure... 
Heart totally given and then given some more... 
She notices my moods, she fixed my past... 
She helps build our future, with Kathi, it's a blast... 
I know where I'm going, and she's right by my side... 
together forever, husband and bride...

Fathers can give their sons an inheritance of houses and wealth, but only the Lord can give an understanding wife. Prov 19:14
Thank you baby for giving me you, what a gift... Karl

Joy in the City!

There is a river that brings joy to the city of God, the holy place where God Most High lives.
God is in that city, and so it will not be shaken. God will help her at dawn.
Nations tremble and kingdoms shake. God shouts and the earth crumbles.
The Lord All-Powerful is with us; the God of Jacob is our defender.
Come and see what the Lord has done, the amazing things he has done on the earth.
Ps 46:4-8

Have a peace filled Christmas season... Blessings, Karl

All growed up... But still comin Home!

My three sons and daughter are such an encouragement to me... I could of never asked for anything better than being a Father and watching them grow up to become who they are... wow I am blessed!
There's no point in being grown up if you can't be childish sometimes.
We've had bad luck with children; they've all grown up Chris Morley
By the time I'd grown up, I naturally supposed that I'd be grown up. Eve Babitz

Dear brothers and sisters, don’t be childish in your understanding of these things. Be innocent as babies when it comes to evil, but be mature in understanding matters of this kind. 1 Corinthians 14:20 NLT

Entering Marriage with Guns Blazing!

With her 22cal. rifle at 90 feet Oakley reputedly could split a playing card and put five or six more holes in it before it touched the ground. 

In 1881 the famous Baughman and Butler shooting act was going on in Cincinnati. Frank E Butler, the star of the show boasted that he could beat any local fancy shooter. He bet a hotel owner $100 who arranged a shooting match and Butler was quite surprised on knowing that a young girl had accepted his challenge. In a short while Butler was face to face with Oakley in the shooting competition which he lost and Annie won and simultaneously they lost their hearts to each other. After this Frank began dating Annie which eventually led to a happy marriage and partnership of 44 years.

Frank gave up his career to manage hers as her talent and luck landed her a starring role in Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show where she performed and this eventually shot her to fame as she went on to become the first American female superstar.
Annie died in 1926 and a heart broken Frank followed her to the grave 18 days after Annie. 
Just shows you that guns and marriage can go together... Blessings!

Chuck and Joan Barancik did it!

I went over to my moms house the other day to look through old family photos and we came across the only one that she had of their wedding... I thought about how everybody today takes photos of everything... takes them for granted... But I took alot of pictures from my moms and I'm putting them on a CD for her... Love you Mom, I miss Dad too. Dad you taught your sons some great lessons in life, one being; "always love her and do her right"! 

Your parents, they give you your life, but then they try to give you their life. Chuck Palahniuk
All children alarm their parents, if only because you are forever expecting to encounter yourself. Gore Vidal
