Day 2: Forgot my camera :(

Hello everyone from Madison, AL

Day number 2 was great as number one, but forgot my camera at home so no photos. Still day number 2 had ladies visitation first thing in the morning, mexican food for lunch, a little shopping and spanish church at night. Matthew preached there.

While on visitation one thing strike me, it wasn't much difference from going on visitation in Spain. I can see how the hearts of americans are getting harder to the things of God. Yes, the churches are bigger here, but out of the church doors, it doesn't seem to be much of a difference with hard Europe. We must pray!

On wednesday, pastor preached about the silent 7,000 from the time of Elijah. God told Elijah he wasn't alone, that He had a remanent of 7,000. But Elijah felt alone because those 7,000 were standing for God but were not being a witness. They had not kneel down to Baal, but they had not tried to make a difference.

There are so many christians in America, may us not be like the silet 7,000. I still believe that in the US, if we want to make a difference, we still can.

Another difference in the non spiritual side, and to lighten things up, is how cheap everything in America is. The cars, the houses, pretty much everything. You may not feel that way, but be thankful, because it is that way.

One thing more expensive than Europe, yogurts, fresh veggies and fruit.

Usually friday means Photo Friday Flashback, but while I am here I won't be able to participate because I don't have my photos :(. Stinks though because I really enjoy this meme. To enjoy Photo Friday Flashbacks go over to Alicia's blog.

Today is my blogversary, and tomorrow I will be letting you know the winner of the giveaway. Make sure you enter for your chance to win.

When I started blogging last year, I really did it because I have a friend that does it and she told me I must got into it. Funny though that she doesn't really blog anymore :), but I just did it to give it a try. I figure it would be an easy way to keep family updated, and I figured that it would save me some time from writting all those different emails. That way whoever wanted just needed to read it here.

Now is not about that anymore, it has turn into part of my day. I am so thankful for all the new friends God has given me through blogging. I look forward getting to know many more through the next year, and getting close to those I already know and enjoy. You ladies have been a blessing to this blogger. I love you all!

Oh cool, how interesting it is to compare from two different countries! I agree with the hardness amongst Christians nowadays. The love of many will wax cold. We need a revival and we need to ask Him for one.

Looking forward to picture next time!

Well it looks like you got right down to the most important things first...Fraps and soda pop.

Sounds like you are having fun. Sad that you see America as we are, but best that we do so we can be a part of the change.

Have some more fun and keep the camera in you purse or bag or whatever you carry.

Take care

You are so right, we are the silent 7000 in America. We need to get back to God.

We do take it for granted how cheap it is here, we complain about how high it is. I guess we need to look around again.
I started blogging like you, not thinking that I would have friends around the world.
