Today, I will be telling you about the most important person in the world. Perhaps you've heard about him. His name is Jesus. Why is he so important? Because he died for my sins and yours. (John 3:16 states "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." Everyone will have eternal life but unless you ask Jesus to come in your life you will have eternal life in hell.  

To be saved all you have to do is believe and say the ABC's to become a Christian. 

The ABC's to becoming a Christian are:
1. Admit you are a sinner. "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;" (Romans 3:23)
2. Believe that Jesus Christ died for you, was buried, and rose from the dead.
3. Confess that Jesus Christ is Lord.

Romans 10:9 says, "If you confess with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved."
If you believe and say a simple prayer like this one below, that's all there is to it. You can accept Jesus Christ at this moment and not spend your eternity in hell.

Jesus, I know that I am a sinner, and I ask for Your forgiveness. I believe You died for my sins and rose from the dead. I turn from my sins and invite You to come into my heart and life. I want to trust and follow You as my Lord and Savior. In Your Name.

A helpful site for new believers is here.

Now that you know how to become a Christian, you should do the following to help build your faith and gain support from other Christians.
Go to church. This is important because you can fellowship with other Christians.
Read the Bible so you can grow closer to God.
Share the gospel with other nonbelievers.

Becoming saved will not mean that your life here on earth will be perfect. The Bible states "I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33.  Christians still have problems BUT we are not alone, we have God to help us through hard times.

If you decide not to say this prayer today and are not saved, please talk to a saved friend or a pastor of a local Christian church soon to understand the importance of this message.  Don't wait.  You may comment on my blog and I will do my best to help if you have questions.

What I Have Been Doing

  • Attended a church pie and cake auction which benefited the church youth program. They raised  $2,170.
  • Gave two kittens away to some friends that we go to church with.
  •  Also, I  have been studying for the Vet Science Skillathon which is extremely hard. One of the things that makes it so hard is that there will be a quiz bowl, written exam, skill quiz and an essay which you have to give. 
  • School. 
  • Prepared for the farm and ranch tour tomorrow am fixing to bake some cookies for that....

I have skipped Mississippi because we just drove through it and will be telling you about what we did when we reached our destination in Dauphin Bay, Alabama. Mom and Dad had surprised us with a beach house which they had rented out for us called Sunny Pit. The weather was not too sunny but we had a lot of fun. The island had the Gulf of Mexico on one side and the Mississippi Sound on the other. Our house was on the gulf side and the waves were really choppy.

Sunny Pit
Sunny Pit had three bedrooms and two baths; my little brother Andrew and I shared the room below which has the twin beds. The only disadvantage was that we had to bring our own sheets and towels which took up extra room in the car.

Another thing that we did, was visit the Historic Fort Gaines which was probably one of the most educational war museum which I have ever been to. I loved it because it was really hands on and you could get to explore the old fort that became famous during the civil war. Of course being in the south it was a Confederate fort where the famous words D*** the torpedoes took place. The fort had amazing views of Mobile bay where a famous battle in the civil war was fought. Fort Gaines had underground tunnels, secret rooms, and lots of civil war memorabilia  If you like learning about our country's history you should defintly go. There is a small fee of  around five dollars. To learn more, they have a website here.

I will be doing two posts about a vacation we took, here go's. The first state we went to was Louisiana, we drove to the town of  Baton Rouge and spent the night in a hotel. The next morning, we drove to the Oak Alley Plantation, just outside of New Orleans. As their website states "It's more than a house. It's a majestic place by the Mighty Mississippi River where 300 year old oak trees have held root through times of prosperity and through times of suffering". This southern mansion is commonly called "The Grand Dame of the great river road" and that is what it is A beautiful house right next to the mighty Mississippi River. The admission to tour this house is $20.00 an adult, $7.50 for children 13 to 18 and $4.50 for kids who are between 6 and 12 years old. Even though this house is on the expensive side to tour, I would say that it is well worth it. The house and grounds take around two hours to see. My favorite parts are the antique vehicles and learning the history about the house. My favorite room of the mansion is the dining room. In the middle of this room, hung from the ceiling is a wood piece with fabric hanging from it.  A slave would have a rope tied to it and would slowly pull it to create a comfortable breeze. The dining room once had marble floors, but when the house was abandoned, cows got inside the house and cracked the floor and made a mess so the floor had to be changed into a wood floor.  I really enjoyed this tour and would go back again if I had the chance. The first image below is a video of the house taken from their website.

Another thing we did in Louisiana was drive to the French Quarter in New Orleans and eat at Deanie's Seafood. To tell you the truth, I have had better seafood. After that, we drove to Mississippi; but that is an  another post....

A helpful tip for when visiting Louisiana is the following:  Louisiana is known for its gambling, so when driving through do not get tempted to do evil; for James 4:17 states "So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin".
