What is your excuse?

Okay, Okay, I know I am on this obedient thing but I just can't seem to let it go. As a Christian I want to ask you, how do you handle it when people are passive about their faith? They make every excuse you can think of to not get involved, not to be obedient. In the past few months I have experienced this with many different individuals.
The excuses range from one end of the spectrum to the other. My favorite has been that I can't get my kid to youth group because I have to watch a certain program on television. Tell me, what is more important for a parent, trying to lead your child down the right path of salvation or watching television? And people want to question what has happened to our youth. We must know there is a problem when television or the Internet has become more important than trying to lead others to the ultimate promise land and not the promise land that the media is shoving down our throats everyday.
I just hope Christ will continue to try to show me ways to reach these individuals. It can be frustrating to try to get people out of their ruts and into a different direction. We as Christians need to be more proactive in spreading the word and leading people in the right direction. This is our duty as warriors for Christ.

Why does it cost so much?

Has anyone ever wondered why it cost so much to have car repairs? I guess you don't really think of it until the time comes to give the ol' mechanic a call. We have experinced that this past week.
Our 2004 Chevy Trailblazer's transmission played out on us and of course we are out of warranty. You can never imagine the cost of this repair. However with a lot of prayer we have managed a way to pay for the crazy thing and hopefully we will be driving around in it by Monday afternoon. It is hard being down to one car and borrowing my mom's car(thanks mom) to get our busy boys to where they need to be. So if you find yourself in the same shoes in the future know that you have a friend out here that feels for you.
