Earthquake and Game Show!!!!

This morning was the first earthquake that I have ever been in. It was crazy, it woke me up and it only lasted a little while. Maybe 30 seconds to a minute. My mom actually thought it was the washing machine shaking the house. Then later on in the morning they told on the news that they had an earthquake in Illinois and we felt it in Kentucky. I also heard that people in Canada all the way down to Florida felt the earthquake.

Now on to the game show part. We have been watching this game show on The Game Show Network called Russian Roulette. I believe this is the scariest game show I have ever seen. Watch the video and decide for yourself.

Next week I will be blogging about my favorite book in the world, THE BIBLE!!!!

My Papaw

My Papaw preached for my dad at the rest home tonight. But before we started the service I asked him what his favorite verse was in the Bible. Well he said that there was just too many, but he did mention four verses. So I thought I would share them with you.

Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

John 15:13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

Psalm 1:3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

Revelation 20:6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.

A Modern Parable

Matthew 18:23-35
Therefore is the kingdom of heaven likened unto a certain king, which would take account of his servants. (v. 23)
And when he had begun to reckon, one was brought unto him, which owed him ten thousand talents. (v. 24)
But forasmuch as he had not to pay, his lord commanded him to be sold, and his wife, and children, and all that he had, and payment to be made. (v. 25)
The servant therefore fell down, and worshipped him, saying, Lord, have patience with me, and I will pay thee all. (v. 26)
Then the lord of that servant was moved with compassion, and loosed him, and forgave him the debt. (v. 27)
But the same servant went out, and found one of his fellowservants, which owed him an hundred pence: and he laid hands on him, and took him by the throat, saying, Pay me that thou owest. (v. 28)
And his fellowservant fell down at his feet, and besought him, saying, Have patience with me, and I will pay thee all. (v. 29)
And he would not: but went and cast him into prison, till he should pay the debt. (v. 30)
So when his fellowservants saw what was done, they were very sorry, and came and told unto their lord all that was done. (v. 31)
Then his lord, after that he had called him, said unto him, O thou wicked servant, I forgave thee all that debt, because thou desiredst me: (v. 32)
Shouldest not thou also have had compassion on thy fellowservant, even as I had pity on thee? (v. 33)
And his lord was wroth (angry), and delivered him to the tormentors, till he should pay all that was due unto him. (v. 34)
So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses. (v. 35)
