California Trip

Wow!! What a hot & blessed weekend we had. We brought the heat with us :( I forsure thought that it would be way cooler when we got home, wrong!!! :)

All The Reina Grandkids

So we left early Sat morning to cute ol' Upland, Ca. This town is sooo unbelievbly cute. I used to live right next door, in Ontario. We went to California to Celebrate my sister-in-law Angelique's College graduation, she's been in college for 10 years, oh did I mention she has 3 beautiful kids and a husband. Wow!! Angel I really am proud of you. God has been so good to you.

Sat we drove down to Ptizer College, which is in Claremont, which was about a 10 min drive from her house and we drove around for about 20 mins looking for parking. So we finally get there and have to walk about 1/2 a mile to the out door ceremony, did I mention it was about 100 degrees. But it was well worth it!! After that we went back to Angels house for some of my mother-in-laws homemade cooking. For those of you that went to my wedding, you know what I'm talking about. And then we had raffles going on, I won a cute little plant. And the kids got soaking wet!! Whoo hoo!! And we had 2 rounds of Pinata's one for the kids and one for us. Now that was fun!! Good for getting all your frustrations out!! He!He! LOL!!!!

Then we checked into our room and went swimming!! Fun times!!! Then we woke up the next morning Sunday, oh I feel so guilty we did not even make it to church. And then we drove off to Knotts Berry Farm.

Where should I begin. The first ride I got on was the Ghost Rider. Anyone over the age of 29, do not recommend it. It is the most jerkiest ride ever. And it has lots of dips. After that ride I felt like I just got into a horrible accident. My brain turned to mush!!LOL!!! Then I went on the like Free Fall type of ride, don't remember what it was called. But that was a blast!!! Then we watched my neice, nephew and sis-in-law Valerie get on the Acclerator, I should have went on, chickend out. So after that we got on the Log ride, best ride for all ages up to 2yrs. Then we went and got some lunch, watched a really funny show, walked around at some shops got on the log ride again, so much fun. And then the last ride I went on with my neice Onyx was the silver bullet, where your feet are dangling. All I have to say is OMGosh!!! That was wicked, I could not even stand straight after that. I was so dizzy and out of mind. That ride put me out. So on our way home we went, I don't know how Michael did. By the grace of God, we made it home. Monday I couldn't move any part of my body. Tylenol and 7up where my best friends.

I have to say that I had alot of fun spending time with family and having fun!!! The pain was well worth the trip!! Thank you Lord for the awesome time we had. The trip itself was like a roller coaster. LOL!!! :)

What is the Truth?

What is the truth?
Truth is not a feeling. Truth is not an idea. The truth is found in the Bible.Sincerity and good works do not bridge the gap of sin between God and man. Only the blood of Jesus can cleanse a person (Heb. 9:22; John 14:6). Sincerity and good works are merely the reliance upon what is in the individual to merit favor with God. Sincerity is a form of pride when it is appealed to as a justification for being accepted by God: "But God, look at my heart. See how sincere I was? I deserve to be in heaven."No. If sincerity and good works were good enough to satisfy God, then He wouldn't have given us the Bible to correct our sincerely wrong ideas, and He wouldn't have sent His Son to do what our good works cannot.Truth is what God says is true.The truth is important not because it is simply true. It is important because truth is what defines who and what we believe in.Eternity is a long time to be wrong. Especially about Jesus.

What me and my Family Believe

What We Believe
WE BELIEVE the worship of God should be spiritual! Therefore we remain flexible so the Holy Spirit may direct our worship.
WE BELIEVE the worship of God should be inspirational! Therefore we give a great place to music in our worship.
WE BELIEVE the worship of God should be intelligent! Therefore, in our services, we emphasize Bible teaching so God may instruct us how He would be worshipped.
WE BELIEVE the worship of God should be fruitful! Therefore we look for His love in our lives as the greatest evidence that we are truly worshipping Him.

How To Know God

How to Know God

Realize that you are a sinner. No matter how good a life we try to live, we still fall miserably short of being a good person. That is because we are all sinners. We all fall short of God’s desire for us to be holy. The Bible says, “No one is good—not even one” (Romans 3:10 NLT). This is because we cannot become who we are supposed to be without Jesus Christ.Recognize that Jesus Christ died on the cross for you.The Bible tells us, “But God showed His great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while were still sinners” (Romans 5:8 NLT). This is the Good News, that God loves us so much that He sent His only Son to die in our place when we least deserved it.Repent of your sin.The Bible tells us to “repent and be converted” (Acts 3:19 NKJV). The word repent means to change our direction in life. Instead of running from God, we can run toward Him.Receive Jesus Christ into your life.Becoming a Christian is not merely believing some creed or going to church on Sunday. It is having Christ Himself take residence in your life and heart. Jesus said, “Behold, I stand at the door (of your life) and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in...” (Revelation 3:20 NKJV).

If you would like to have a relationship with Christ, simply pray this prayer and mean it in your heart.

Dear Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner. I believe you died for my sins. Right now, I turn from my sins and open the door of my heart and life. I confess you as my personal Lord and Savior. Thank you for saving me. Amen.If you just prayed that prayer and meant it, Jesus Christ has now taken residence in your heart! Your decision to follow Christ means God has forgiven you and that you will spend eternity in heaven.

The Bible tells us, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9 NKJV).

Praise the Lord, if you just asked Jesus in your heart I want you to know that the Angels in Heaven are rejoicing for you and so am I. Go to http://www.calvarychapel.com/?show=Churches and click on churches to find the closest church to you and go. Go and tell them that you've just accepted the Lord Jesus Christ into your heart. They will be able to lead you to the next step.

God Bless you Brethren.
In the Mighty Name of Jesus!!! Amen!!!
Your sister in Christ Jesus!!!
