Today is St Patrick's Day, a day where we remember a famous and devout believer who was a misisonary to Ireland. Althouth the topic of "Saints" is controversial, it still doesn't take away from the man Patrick as being a genuine believer who loved God and was devoted to Jesus. There are many great lessons we can learn and apply from His life. Next week in the email mailing list I'm going to write a little bit about this man and what made him so special. If you are not currently getting my emails you can "sign-up here.
Did Jesus really rise again from the dead? Its one of those questions that has been debated over and over, and fortunately, there is a simple answer and 5 simple ways we can be absolutely certain. I decided to email the list with these 5 points.......you can check it out in the email archives.
8 Days ago the Pope John Paul II passed away and went to be with the Lord. Although I'm not a Roman Catholic and most of the people I know are not either, I am convinced that this was a godly man that we should honour and respect for his devout and faithful life and service to God. Every denomination has weaknesses and faults, whether it be the Lutherans, Baptists, Pentecostals or the Roman Catholics.
Just wanted to let you all know that on April 25 I'm going to take a week off to go hiking at Carnarvon National Park. I'll post photos when I'm back. I'm really looking foward to it.
My hiking trip didn't end up going as planned. There were a couple of things which happened which were unfortunate and the whole event was a little stressful while I was in the middle of it. However, now that it is over I am glad to have had the experience of remote solo hiking. The rangers at Carnarvon National Park wanted me to send them photos and a report of my trip.
Turned 28 at about 10:00 this morning. My grandmother phoned me at breakfast to wish me a happy birthday and asked how old I was. I told her and she said "Thats young." However it sounds old to me. How did I suddenly get to 28 when I was only 18 not very long ago. That last 10 years just dissapeared in a blink. I have a theory about this actually. When a person is young, time seems to pass slowly because compared to the amount of time they have lived, a day is a much larger unit of time.
