Sinners, Grace and Moving on

TasteBefore we knew Jesus, we were sinners. But we got saved by Grace, and we are not sinners anymore, we are a new creation in Christ. 2 Cor 5:17.

So we are now the righteousness of God in Christ. 2 Cor 5:21.

If we confess our sins He is faithful and just to forgive us of all our sins and cleanse us of ALL unrighteousness. 1John 1:9  If you confessed it and walked away from it, it’s gone. Don’t beat yourself up.

We are children of God. 1 John 3:1

We died and Christ now lives in us. Colossians 3:3

Who who the Son sets free is free indeed. John 8:36

For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace. Romans 6:14 The Lord wants us victorious over sin. He gives us HIS power over sin. We are not under the law, we are under grace. Grace is not to excuse our sin: GRACE IS POWER OVER SIN.

Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God. Romans 10:17  If you need more faith, listen to preachers, or read your Bible OUT LOUD.

We are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that we may proclaim the praises of Him who called us out of darkness into His marvelous light! 1 Peter 2:9

We live in this world, but we are not of this world.  John 17:16


We are new creatures in Christ. We are not to act like the people in the world, who have no hope. We are to be lights in the darkness.




I have my own blog now. –Bailey

Hi, Bailey here. Mom is helping me to set up my own blog. So it might be a little messy for a while.

I have to figure out what kind of background I want. Then I have to decide which pictures to put up.


A lot of pictures are of me taking a nap. But I do other stuff besides take naps. I go for walks and pee around the neighborhood. And I beg for food. I pretend I’m really hungry so I can get treats.

So welcome to my new blog and I’ll see you again soon.

Your friend,

Please Unsubscribe Me

Too much email! Make it stop!

Too much email! Make it stop!

Hi, Bailey here again, filling in for Mom. Mom has spent a lot of time today unsubscribing from various email lists. It’s a lot of work.

Mom has several email accounts: One in her maiden name, one in her married name, etc. She realized last week that she is on several emailing lists in several accounts, so she is getting not only spam, but multiple spam. How in the world did that happen?

So Mom has to go through every email, and click “please unsubscribe me”. It then takes her to a new page which usually asks:


  • I get too much email from you
  • I get too much email in general
  • I don’t like the information given
  • I’m not spending enough time with my dog, taking him on walks, etc
Pick that one Mom!

Pick that one Mom!

So after that choice is made, another screen comes up.

  • Would you like the emails once a week instead?
  • Would you like the emails once a month instead?
  • Keep me on the list after all–I have no life and I can’t wait to read more emails

Okay, so the last one I exaggerated. But only a little.

Any emails for free treats?

Any emails for free treats?

Then after all that work, it says that she will be unsubscribed within 72 hours. That’s a lot of walks and treats that will be happening within 72 hours.

So all you email generators, I hope you will do what Mom asks and “Please Unsubscribe Me” so Mom can spend time doing more important things.

The Push for “Best Seller” Hour


A PUSH for a fellow Christian blogger whose new book is out!

I am so excited about the release of my latest book! I’ve already had a 5-star review and it was just released Saturday! My God is awesome!

At any rate, I’m pushing to make the best seller list for sales in one hour–from 6:00 p.m. -7:00 p.m. EST tonight. The book is selling for .99 and if you would join me in this quest, I’d appreciate it. This is the preliminary announcement of tonight’s event. I’ll send out a reminder around 5:30 EST.

While you’re waiting, go ahead and a look at the preview (Inside on Amazon)

Not too long ago, my husband and I asked God for one million plus readers reading my books. Whatever I write, I have Him in mind–the romances, the mysteries, the fantasies, my blogs, everything. Now, I can see His response to our request coming to pass. If you’re reading them–thank you. If…

Today was the best day ever!

Blitz-6Hi Bailey here again, filling in for Mom. While Mom and Dad don’t agree, today was the best day ever. Ok, well it was the best day for me. My best friend Blitz came over to play today! That’s Blitz, the black dog in the picture. You already know me.

Mom was going out the door to take me for my walk to the park, when I saw my best friend Blitz on the leash with his mom! I was so excited I pulled Mom down the driveway and we both almost fell over. Then our moms talked, and Blitz came to play in my backyard with me. Usually I go to his house, but today was the first time he came to my house.

Dad is not feeling well today. Mom was in the hospital again Tuesday night into Wednesday night because she had chest pains. The doctors don’t know what caused it, but Mom said they checked her heart and everything is fine, so they sent her back home. She still feels a little tired, because she only slept for 20 minutes Tuesday night. Hospitals are not good places for sleep. They are too noisy.

Mom sent a text to her friend, and she was able to email all the other moms in the Bible Study group so they were able to pray for Mom while she was in the hospital. Mom was able to go to Bible Study Friday, and thank all her friends for praying for her.

Dad didn’t get much sleep either. He was with Mom until she actually got admitted to the hospital, which was 2:30 am. Then he got home at 3 am, and woke up at 6 am. So Dad has a cold today.

So Mom and Dad are tired today. But did I tell you it was the best day ever?!

Blitz-9This is a picture of Blitz and me running on the path into the woods. I am the fastest runner, so sometimes I slow down so Blitz can catch up with me.

Blitz-4We had to take a lot of rests because we ran around so much. Mom wasn’t able to get any good pictures of us running.

Blitz-8Above is the best picture Mom was able to get. I am too fast for her!

Blitz-10Blitz’s mom came to pick him up and take him home. But I am sure we will play again another day.
