A. When you can't figure out how to take the computer tower apart.
This problem happened to me and my dad tonight.
On Sunday night I was looking for a CD. For some odd reason I thought it might be in my CD burner so when I opened it up there was no CD just dust. I know I should have cleaned it.
So tonight I get a couple of bottles of air. (John from Wal-Mart told me to go outside and bottle the wind that was blowing. I wish I could have done that.) So we get home and I turn my computer off and I let it rest for a little while. Then we come in my room to clean it and to save our lives, we could not figure out how to take it apart. I actually made the statement, "lets call Uncle Bill." Then in my head I thought maybe I should call my cousin Marcy. But we got it apart and cleaned it. I know stupid story, but it could happen to you.
So what is the lesson???? CLEAN IT!!!!! Those things get dusty.
Also congratulations to my cousin Marcy for winning a autographed copy of a Lance Storm DVD. You Go Girl!!!!!!

This year on Dancing with the Stars the women have been saying that a woman will win on the show. HELLO!!! How many women watch the show??? I mean I naturally root for the men stars. Unless my favorite professional dancer Louis van Amstel is dancing with some woman star. I think the women are setting themselves up for a big fall. But then again I could be wrong.
Also I have a question for you Nascar fans. What Nascar driver died in a helicopter crash?? I was reading a book and they said something about this Nascar driver, but they did not mention any names. I will be very thankful if someone could answer my question.

So we watched qualifying and then they started hot laps. I think after the first set of hot laps the announcer said the track that is a hour away had to quit because of rain. Everyone started to get worried, but they kept going. Then it hit us and we just stayed there in the rain.
About 10:30 p.m. they finally told us that they would not be able to race. So we left, but they had so many people there that we had to wait, so we just sit there in the van. Then I heard someone say something about Bristol and my brain started working. I told my dad to turn the radio on. So we listened to the race. We had fun though. They rescheduled for September, but knowing my luck for this summer it will rain again. I mean I went to Cedar Point the first part of August and I thought we would get rained out then. What is it with me and rain???

Tonight Brian preached and he preached from Matthew 14:13-21. His main text was from v. 16 (They need not depart.). He talked about Jesus feeding the multitude. Also he preached about the woman touching the hem of Jesus' garment, Moses parting the Red Sea, Samson killing 1000 men with a jaw bone and the widow and son that all they had left was a handful of meal. Brian did a awesome job tonight.
Well since campmeeting is over I guess I will have to go back to listening to Brian on CDs and off the Internet. I am sort of sad that campmeeting is over. : ( I really enjoy campmeeting. Tomorrow we will have our Sunday School Rally so that will be fun, I might do a blog tomorrow about that.
Thursday, July 26, 2007
He gave five points about shouting they are, Shout without the clout. Shout that brings the rout. Shout without a doubt. The Shout that brought us out. And last but not least, The Shout that will take us out. During his second point he talked about Joshua and the children of Israel marching around Jericho and when he was talking about this, Brian stood up and started blowing a ram's horn. Then everyone started to Praise the Lord.
We then had different men carrying the Christian flag around. At one time some guys I know were running around the church carrying the Christian flag. It was so great. Then close to the end of church everyone was sticking around, so they did not know what to do because no one was leaving. So Cal Ray had this guy come up on the stage and Cal Ray, Brian Baer, Mike Blanton, and this other guy all started singing. They did a good job. I never knew Cal Ray could sing and he is a good singer also.
Wednesday, July 25, 2007
The singers started singing and the girl who is going to Iraq came to the altar and had people pray for her. Then some more people went to the altar. We were all having a good time and the singers were going to stop singing, but we told them to keep singing. So they did and more people went to the altar. We had one person saved, maybe more. We also had a young boy accept the call to preach. I knew something was going on with this young boy because he kept going to the altar, he was running from the call. But thank God he quit running tonight. We all had a great time.
I forgot to tell about what I gave Brian last night. I had heard Brian say one time while preaching that when he witnesses to people, he first finds out what they are interested in. So he said if they like Nascar then they talk about Jeff Gordon or how much he does not like Jeff Gordon. But the funniest thing is Brian knows nothing about Nascar. So last night I wrote out stats about my favorite driver Tony Stewart and I gave them to him. I told him that most people don't like my driver. Then he looked down at the paper and he said, "I like this guy, because people say I look like him." I looked at Brian and I could not believe I had not noticed it before. I sort of felt stupid giving him the stats, but after I gave them to him, I was glad because he seemed truly excited about me giving them to him.
Tomorrow night (I mean tonight) Cal Ray Evans will preach. Unless we have another service like we had tonight.
Tuesday, July 24, 2007
Brian preached tonight and he preached from Psalm 52 the whole Psalm. He talked about the green olive tree and he made four points. Those points are Forbearance of the olive tree. Foundation of the olive tree. Fruitfulness of the olive tree and Finality of the olive tree. The thing about the finality of the olive tree is the olive tree never dies. So their is no finality. So when David said he was like a green olive tree in the house of God, he was saying that he would never die. For the Christians today, we may die physically but we do not die spiritually. I love that point that Brian made.
At the end many went to the altar. OH, I almost forgot we had three ladies that came from Kentucky Mountain Bible College and sung for us. They did a great job. Well tomorrow (or tonight that is) Paul Hagen will preach again for us.
Monday, July 23, 2007
The preaching was done by Cal Ray Evans. He preached from Matthew 3:11 & 12. One thing that I thought was interesting that he told is in the scriptures wheat is used as a reference to saints and/or Christians. I took notes but some of the notes were not very clear. So I won't post the notes, I don't want to confuse anyone.
Someone also gave $3500 for some of the churches over seas. I thought it was great!!! We had a lot of people raise their hand saying they were not saved. Please pray that they will come back and get saved. Tomorrow (or tonight) Brian Baer is preaching. I am so excited, Brian is a very interesting preacher.
Tonight our general superintendent Paul Hagen preached. I have always enjoyed hearing Paul preach. Tonight he read from Exodus 16:21. He did not read the whole scripture, he read only one line. He preached twenty minutes, but he told us he would preach longer on his second night.
The main part of the scripture he focused on was "And they gathered it every morning....." He said that God gave fresh bread daily to the children of Israel. But it was their job to gather it every day. So likewise it is our job to gather it daily also. For us Christians now, it means that if we want something fresh from God everyday we have to pray and read our Bible. Paul gave altar call and ask people if they felt like they were not doing things like they use to (reading their Bible, praying and attending church) that they needed to come to the altar and ask God to help them.
It was a nice service and I seen a lot of friends also. Tomorrow, or should I say tonight, Cal Ray Evans will be preaching. Then on Tuesday night Brian Baer will preach. During the day they have services at 10:00am and 2:00pm, with Paul Hagen, Cal Ray Evans and Brian Baer in a rotating schedule.

You know I was thinking about this scripture the other night. I remember two or three weeks before my grandmother passed away. She said, "I'm going to quote the 23rd Psalm and you tell me if I am right." I said, "Hold on Mamaw let me get my Bible" and she said, "You don't know it." I got my Bible and she quoted it, word for word. She told me and my mom that sometimes when she would be laying in bed right before she would go to sleep, she would say the 23rd Psalm and the Lord's Prayer. I have also heard my Papaw Wilford while praying say, "Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for thou art with me!"
Looking back I can see why I would choose the 23rd Psalm to remember. That scripture got my grandparents through many hard times, it is just fitting for me to learn it. So it will help me through hard times also. I learned John 3:16 when I was younger, when I decided to memorize scriptures I started with the 23rd Psalm and I have memorized others also.
Also one quick story. I thank God for my Christian heritage, but I think him for my Bible heritage. When I was younger I remember waking up early in the morning and looking out from under the covers and seeing my Mamaw reading her Bible. And I do believe seeing her do this has instilled in me that my Bible should not be ignored and that I need it's words to see me through life's journey. Mamaw, I thank you!
Saturday, July 7, 2007
I just thought this funny and wanted to share it with you all. I am glad that no one got hurt. Now that would have been one crazy ball game to hear one radio broadcaster say to the other "Are you OK!"
Also I wanted everyone to know that I have finished reading the Bible through for the second time. (LOL, talking about baseball and the Bible makes me think of Billy Sunday.)
Wednesday, July 4, 2007
Now for a humorous story, I don't know if anyone has seen the new Diet Pepsi Max commercial. It is the commercial of everyone yawning. So I was watching TV last night and that commercial came on and everyone was yawning and what happens next I yawn. Well it is like everyone says yawning catches on (I am yawning right now).
I want to wish everyone a HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!!!!! I hope everyone has a fun and safe day.
Also HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my dog Gizmo (3 years old)!!!!!

In a article that I had read, it said that Benoit actually went to his doctor's office Friday morning. What I understand is he just went to say hi, but the doctor didn't see anything unusual going on with Benoit. His doctor even made the statement that he is surprised and shocked that this happened, especially over Daniel, because he said that Benoit worshipped his son.
What makes me upset over the whole thing (besides Benoit doing this crazy thing) is if you go over to WWE.com they have taken everything of Chris Benoit from their site. They won't sale his items anymore, and why this upsets me is the fact that they will probably not have a fund that they can put money into for Benoit's two children and Nancy's family. It is sort of like he never existed, and we should not condone what he did, but he should be remembered as a great wrestler.
Last night I was talking to mom on the phone and ask my mom if I was weird, because for some reason I can't hate Chris Benoit. I hate what he did but I try to think about the good things about him. And I am sort of surprised, but most people feel the same way that I feel. I was reading some e-mails earlier about the whole situation. Most folks don't agree with what he did, but they still respect him as the wrestler he was. They also made the same statement that I did, about them not being his judge. Today I took a poll and it ask if your opinion of Benoit has changed. The results were that 34% said yes, 12% said not really, 27% said no not at all and 26% were undecided at this moment. To me, not really and no not at all are the same. So if you add that together then 39% of people still respect the wrestler Chris Benoit.
Before I end this long blog I will say that professional wrestling has their demons. It is a nasty business. I watched wrestling between the years of 1997-2000 and their was a lot of deaths during those years. Since I started and stopped watching wrestling I have seen, Brian Pillman, Owen Hart, Davey Boy Smith, Rick Rude, Curt Hennig, Eddie Guerrero, Crash Holly, Miss Elizabeth, Johnny Grunge, Rocco Rock, Road Warrior Hawk, Louie Spicolli, Bam Bam Bigelow, Renegade, Mike Awesome, Chris Candido, and Sherri Martel (June 15, 2007) all die. I know I probably have left someone off the list, but you get the point. Some deaths were tragic and some were not, but there is stress going on in wrestling. Also if you would look into The Von Erich Family, now there is a wrestling family with a lot of demons in their closet.
Tuesday, June 26, 2007
Chris Benoit was one of my favorite wrestlers, when I watched wrestling. I love almost every Canadian wrestler and Benoit was one. In fact I told my cousin this morning that I would list him as one of my top three favorite Canadian wrestlers. Also he was in The Four Horsemen with Ric Flair and I have always liked Ric Flair. Benoit's wife Nancy also use to be in wrestling as a manager, I knew her as Woman, then I knew her as Chris Benoit's wife.
Now I have to be honest with you all. This morning I read on the Internet then I heard it on TV that this situation is being ruled as a murder-suicide. They are saying that Chris Benoit murder his wife and son sometime during the weekend and then committed suicide sometime Monday. Then the bodies of himself, his wife and his son were found by police on Monday afternoon. I know most of you reading this is thinking that he is a bad man. Of course it is very very wrong what he did, but I can't be his judge. God will be the judge over Chris Benoit. I will say that I believe he had some kind of demon in him. I watched wrestling last night and they showed a video of him with his wife and son, and I could see how much he loved his family especially his little boy.
So now as I write this blog with so many mixed emotions flooding my mind. I want to have good thoughts and those good thoughts are of watching Benoit wrestler. So I am going to try to keep everyone updated and I don't know when I will have it done, but I want to make a tribute video of Benoit. But the most important part is to remember Benoit's family in your thoughts and prayers (especially his two children from a previous marriage). Also remember Nancy's family in your thoughts and prayers.

"Scary Walking Man" I did not know exactly what the name of the statue was. So I named it "Scary Walking Man". This statue I could just see it chasing me.
Big Jesus (Christ the Redeemer) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. This statue is on a skateboarding video game and every time I would see it I would scream and cover my eyes. My cousin Chris would have to tell me when it was off the screen. I am sort of feeling more comfortable when I see the Big Jesus statue, but I have no desire to go see the Big Jesus in person.
Scary Angel (Grave of Chester Arthur the 21st President), who ever put this on his grave I think was insane. I would be afraid that this angel would come to life and dig my grave up. Thanks to my cousin Jon for showing me this scary angel.
Giant Sinking Jesus (King of Kings) in Monroe, Ohio. The church that has this statue is called Solid Rock Church. I am telling people the name of the church that way if they are afraid of statues they can stay away from this church. I would like to send a e-mail to the church, and ask them why they have this statue? Are they trying to keep people that are afraid of statues away from their church. This statue cost $250,000. My cousin Jon told me about this statue also. He saw this statue in person when he was coming down to Kentucky on I-95 (so stay off I-95 if you are afraid of statues).
Last but not least, this is really not a statue just a bust of John Rankin's head. The bust of his head is on his grave. This bust looks like it could glow in the dark. I would be afraid to come along in a dark graveyard and see this head. SCARY!!!!!!!!!
Well I told you one of my fears and I know you probably got a laugh from it.

Owen James Hart was born May 7, 1965 in Calgary, Alberta, Canada to Stu and Helen Hart. He was the youngest of twelve children. Owen was trained by his father Stu and debuted on May 30, 1986. He first started out in Stampede Wrestling his father's company. But he mostly spent his wrestling career in the WWF (now WWE).
To me the greatest moment in his career was when the Hart Foundation was reformed. Bret Hart (Owen's brother) was the ringleader, and the group was rounded out with Owen, Davey Boy Smith (Bret's and Owen's brother-in-law), Jim Neidhart (Bret's and Owen's brother-in-law) and Brian Pillman. Owen was a great wrestler and Owen never needed the stupid WWE championship title to make him a true winner, because even if he never held the title he was a winner in everyone's heart.
Owen Hart was my favorite wrestler. I use to love Owen's brother Bret, but it was not until after Owen died that I realized that Owen was truly my number 1 pick. I just wish I could have met him.
The night he died, and a news reporter came on TV and said a wrestler had died at a pay-per-view event, I never expected it to be Owen. I thought it had to be this hardcore wrestler named Mick Foley that had done something and got himself killed. When the news finally told who had died, it was Owen. The worst part is, it was a tragic event that should have never happened, but it did. And it left us all with a broken heart. But today when I signed on to Myspace I read a bulletin from Owen's niece that said we should make today a celebration of Owen's life and that is what I want to make it. To remember the good things about Owen.
I made a video for this day, and it shows what kind of man Owen was. My cousin told me to use the song "If tomorrow never comes", but I used the the song "The Dance". In the song it says, "But if I'd only known how the king would fall." Owen Hart's nickname was "The King of Harts", so this song is fit for a king. Owen Hart Tribute Video (Click Here)
Owen Hart's Championships and Accomplishments...
- IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship (1 time)
- Stampede British Commonwealth Mid-Heavyweight Championship (1 time)
- Stampede North American Heavyweight Championship (2 times)
- Stampede International Tag Team Championship (1 time)-with brother-in-law Ben Bassarab
- USWA Unified World Heavyweight Championship (1 time)
- WWF (now WWE) European Championship (1 time)
- WWF (now WWE) Intercontinental Championship (2 times)
- WWF (now WWE) World Tag Team Championship (4 times)-with Yokozuna (2), British Bulldog (1) and Jeff Jarrett (1)
- WWF (now WWE) King of the Ring (1994)
To fill in the gaps for you folks that don't know. The Hart Foundation members were trained by Stu Hart. Davey Boy Smith was married to Bret Hart's and Owen Hart's sister Diana. Davey died May the 18Th of 2002. Brian Pillman was friends with the Hart family, he died October the 5Th of 1997. So you see this is a hard month not only for people in the wrestling community, but for the Hart family and the last two members (Bret Hart and Jim Neidhart) of the Hart Foundation.
Tuesday, May 22, 2007
When Pillman was 2 years old he developed throat polyps. He spent a lot of his time growing up in hospitals because of this. He had over 40 operations to remove it, and this left him having a raspy voice.
He played football for Miami University in Oxford, Ohio (Miami Redhawks). He joined the Bengals in 1984 as a free agent. Then later played for the Canadian Football League for the Calgary Stampeders in 1986. He also played for the Buffalo Bills in the preseason in 1985, but was the last player to be cut.
At the end of his football career he got into wrestling and stayed in Calgary and was trained by Stu Hart and his sons. He wrestled in Stampede Wrestling and was in a tag team called Bad Company with Bruce Hart. After Stampede Wrestling Pillman came back to the states and started wrestling in WCW in 1989. He was known as Flyin' Brian Pillman. While in WCW he tag teamed with Tom Zenk. Then later he tag teamed with Steve Austin and they were known as the Hollywood Blondes. After Austin and Pillman separated, Ric Flair reformed The Four Horsemen with Arn Anderson, Chris Benoit and Brian Pillman.
In 1995 Pillman developed the "Loose Cannon" gimmick because of his unpredictable behaviour. He started blurring fact and fiction with his worked-shoots. He was fired from WCW in 1996. After WCW he moved onto ECW for a very brief stay there.
Then he went to the WWF (now WWE) and served as a commentator while recovering from a broken ankle he received in a car accident. After WrestleMania 13 he joined the Hart Foundation with members Bret Hart, Owen Hart, Davey Boy Smith and Jim Neidhart. On October the 5Th when Pillman was suppose to wrestler at a wrestling Pay-Per-View he was found dead in his hotel room. He died from a undetected heart condition (arteriosclerotic heart disease), he was 35 years old.
Championships and Accomplishments.....
- NWA World Tag Team Championship (1 time)-with Stunning Steve Austin
- NWA United States Tag Team Championship (1 time)-with Tom Zenk
- Stampede International Tag Team Championship (2 times)-with Bruce Hart
- WCW Light Heavyweight Championship (2 times)
- WCW World Tag Team Championship (1 time)-with Stunning Steve Austin

He was trained some by Ted Betley in England. Then he relocated to Calgary, Alberta, Canada and began training under Stu Hart. In Calgary he met Stu's youngest daughter Diana and they were married in 1984, they divorced in 2000. They have two children.
His wrestling career started when he was 16 years old. Then he moved to Canada and trained under Stu Hart and began wrestling for Stampede Wrestling. He also wrestled some in Japan. Between 1985 to 2000 he was bounced back and forth between WCW and WWF (now WWE). After his first WWF (now WWE) run he went back to Stampede and New Japan, but mostly he went from company to company. One week before he died he had wrestled in three tag team matchs with his son Harry.

Then we have the Hendrick Boys, yeah can't stand them either. Out of 9 races, 7 of those have been won by a Hendrick driver. I may be losing it but I think Hendrick is paying someone off, but then again I think I am losing it. I do have to say that I think Jeff Gordon is brave for winning in the land of Dale. If I was him I think I would have let someone else win, I would be in fear for my life.
Why did we not end with a green/white checker finish?????
And last but not least, Nascar does not want fans to throw objects onto the race track. Why some people may ask? Well here is the answer from me. When I use to watch wrestling the fans would get upset and what would they do??? They would throw anything they could get their hands on into the ring. What did Tony compare Nascar too??? So Nascar fans don't throw stuff into the ring, oops I mean onto the track.

You know I believe that if Dale had not died I would not be a Tony Stewart fan. Because Dale would still be around why pick someone else? But that second week I tuned in and seen a cocky driver who hit Jeff Gordon in the back end and I said that is my driver and that was Tony. So today on Dale's birthday I wanted to post a link to a tribute video about The Earnhardts. But it is mostly a tribute to Dale Earnhardt. We still miss you Dale! The Earnhardt Video

Most people, if I say the name Jim Hill, would say "who?" But if I say "What A Day That Will Be" (link goes to the words of the song), most people would say "I love that song." Last year I had the privilege of meeting Jim Hill. For a couple of years I had knew that Jim Hill was from around our area. I thought it was cool having someone who wrote a very popular Christian song from our area, but then I heard his testimony...
Jim Hill was saved (born again) at the same camp meeting that I have went to all my life. In fact Jim Hill married the daughter of the general superintendent of the church conference that I grew up in. Now that was very exciting for me to hear, but then he told the story of how the words to "What A Day That Will Be" was formed into a song.
He said that his mother-in-law became very sick. Of course sometimes when things like this happens we wonder why, but Jim Hill was a very new Christian at the time. So one day when he was coming home from work, he was asking God why this was happening to his mother-in-law. Then he said, words just starting filling his mind, but he did not have anything to write the words down. So when he got home he got out of the car and looked down and there was a old piece of cardboard. So he picked it up and wrote down the words to "What A Day That Will Be." The first person that Jim Hill sung the song for, was his sick mother-in-law.
You know this had to be a very hard time for Jim Hill and his family. But just the thought of if it had not happened, then we would not have the words to "What A Day That Will Be." The song has been an anthem of encouragement many times for many people. So maybe we should not tell people sometimes that they should not question God, because I believe if Jim Hill hadn't questioned why it was happening, then we would not have this beautiful song today.

For me personally though, I am a big Toronto Maple Leafs fan and I always have been, since I got into hockey. I sort of think it is odd, but sometimes I think I was born in the wrong territory. I mean I love hockey and another one of my favorite sports is curling. I was upset this January because we did not get to watch curling on TV like we did last year, because of the Olympics. To bad the Winter Olympics couldn't be every year, but that is just my opinion.
OK folks, on now to chocolate Easter bunnies. That is one of my favorite Easter sweets that I love. But the funniest thing is, that I am not much of a fan of chocolate. I like it, but then I don't like it. But I really wanted a hollow chocolate Easter Bunny, so my mom got me two of them. Well I told my mom that the bunny looked evil, I don't know it just looked weird. My mom told me it was not evil, but why in the world would I still be afraid of the bunny when I was eating it? I seriously felt more comfortable after I ate the eyes of that bunny. I mean that bunny's eyes were strange looking. I know I sound crazy, but it did look scary. And I still have one more to eat.
Well Nascar Nextel Cup was off a week, so we have the Texas race coming up. I do have to say that I'm not to fond of Texas and of any other big speedways, besides Daytona. I am more of a short track kind of girl. All I have to say is, if Jimmie Johnson doesn't win this week then I will be very happy.

Also lately I have been thinking about Shane McMahon (Vince McMahon's son). So I went over to one of my favorite websites Wikipedia (known to me and my cousin as Wiki Wiki). I typed in Shane's name and was reading stuff about him then noticed his birthday. I was stunned to find out that Shane is 37 years old. OK folks don't get mad, but my thought was, "Gosh Shane's old!" I thought he would be like 30 or something like that. LOL, in 3 more years he will be 40!
P.S. I know my cousin Marcy is probably going to kill me, because I think he is so old. Note to Marcy: You definitely don't look your age.

Nathanael was a skeptic. In my own opinion Nathanael looked down on Jesus because of where he was from. In John 1:45 and 46 it says... "Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith unto him, We have found him, of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, did write, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph (v45). And Nathanael said unto him, Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth? Philip saith unto him. Come and see (v46)."
Matthew was a tax collector. In Bible days most tax collectors took more money then what they were suppose too. In Matthew 9:9 it is a beautiful sight to see Jesus call someone that most people hated. "And as Jesus passed forth from thence, he saw a man, named Matthew, sitting at the receipt of custom: and he saith unto him, Follow me. And he arose, and followed him (v. 9)."
Then we have Doubting Thomas. John 20:25 says this... "The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the Lord. But he said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the prints of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe (v. 25)." Later he did see Jesus and he believed.
James and John were the brothers so full of themselves. They thought Jesus would surely grant their request of where they thought they should sit in Heaven. Mark 10:35-37, "And James and John, the sons of Zebedee, come unto him, saying, Master, we would that thou shouldest do for us whatsoever we shall desire (v35). And he said unto them, What would ye that I should do for you (v. 36)? They said unto him, Grant unto us that we may sit, one on thy right hand, and the other on thy left hand, in thy glory (v. 37)." In another part of the Bible we see that James and John's mother came with them to make this request. This goes to show that James and John were momma's boys. Nothing wrong with being a momma's boy, just don't let your momma run your life (this goes for girls too). Matthew 20:20, "Then came to him the mother of Zebedee's children with her sons, worshipping him, and desiring a certain thing of him (v. 20)."
Now for the last two men, Peter and Judas Iscariot. Two men who betrayed Jesus the same night. Peter denied Jesus three times. Here is what Peter told Jesus, Matthew 26:35, "Peter said unto him, Though I should die with thee, yet will I not deny thee. Likewise also said all the disciples (v. 35)." Not only did all the disciples lie to Jesus, because they all ran when the men came for Jesus. But Peter denied him three times and lied to him also. In Matthew 26:75 we find out the he remembers what Jesus said to him and it upsets him. "And Peter remembered the word of Jesus, which said unto him, Before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice (three times). And he went out, and wept bitterly (v. 75)."
Judas Iscariot betrayed Jesus for money. Luke 22:3-6, "Then entered Satan into Judas surnamed Iscariot, being of the number of the twelve (v.3). And he went his way, and communed with the chief priests and captains, how he might betray him unto them (v. 4). And they were glad, and covenanted to give him money (v. 5). And he promised, and sought opportunity to betray him unto them in the absence of the multitude (v. 6)." In the end Judas sees he was wrong to betray Jesus, he repents, then he goes and tries to return the money. But in the end, Judas plays God himself and takes his own life.
Six of the seven men, even if they may have sinned, went on to do great things for God. Some wrote books in the Bible and they all were martyrs. Even up to their very last breath, God still used them. This only goes to show, that God does not use perfect people.
