Carol: Praise:  I have no cancer after undergoing a skin throat surgery  today!  Everyone was surprised - - prayers answered.   So very blessed. Aug 13 2019 5:25pm

Carol: Today is another drive to the VA.  We have found a little part that is not on the fast and furious freeway.  Whoever thinks that growth in a city is a good thing is wrong.  Two grands came for an overnight and their visits mean so much to us.  /b] Aug 07 2019 10:46am

The testimony of one Smokey the dog

The way I came to Christ is a long and winding tale. A shortened version follows;

I was dragged to church as a kid, (an American Baptist church) but we stopped going after my mom died when I was 11. God was fathful though. Our Boy Scout troop met in a Methodist church, and I remember being invited to vacation Bible school at a Southern Baptist church near our house. I had a friend in high school who was a Christian, and she witnessed to me in a low key way and invited me to a youth for Christ rally. I asked God to forgive my sins one night after that, but told no one.
I know God did come into my life then. The reason know that was that the next school year was the best year I had in high school. The I went away to college, (MSU) and drifted away, the usual college stuff, drinking swearing and sex. Yet God was faithful. I kept bumping into Christians. In the dorm, the cafeteria, even in my fraternity!(Steve was the frat "Christian" He was involved in Campus Crusade.) I received Christ as savior about 10 months after graduating from college when a co-worker shared with me on our lunch break at 3:00am one morning. I was working for a contract security company on the midnight shift at the time. That was in 1976. The man who shared with me was fired within a couple months, and I didn’t get much discipleship. It was just me and my pocket New Testament. But God was faithful, and seemingly out of the blue I got a call from Steve the fraternity Christian and he invited me to a Bible study at EMU. The funny thing is he didn’t know I had become a Christian! Of course I accepted! Through that study I found a church, and I was baptized in May of 1979. I have been an active member of Crossroads Community Baptist church since that time. http://www.peopleplace.org/templates/con25bl/default.asp?id=19753
I’ve taught adult Sunday school classes with the college students, single adults, and married adults, and I have served as a deacon for one 3 year term. I've been married for 12 wonderful years. My wife and I are currently active in the Choir, and occasionally teaching in our adult Sunday school class. We both work for the University of Michigan Hospitals in Ann Arbor. And God is Still Faithful.!

Thanks for sharing your testimony.

  Isn't it great to be a child of the King knowing He had His hand on us all through the years as we came to Him ! :) :)

The world is very fair to see
The artist will not let it be
He fiddles with the works of God
And makes them look uncommon odd!
