on snacks & temptations.

  1. verses Way to keep up with your memorizing of the Scripture verses!  Next week's is I Corinthians 10:13.  ("No temptation has seized you except what is common to man.  And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear.  But when you are tempted, he will provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.")    Don't forget about Romans 3:23 & John 3:16-17.  And if you can...work on Ephesians 2:8-9.  It's a toughy, but you can do it!
  2. snacks  Megan & Katie, thanks for saving snack time last night.  The donuts were top notch as always! =D  Next week, Shelby has graciously offered to bring her mom's already famous nacho cheese salsa dip!  YES!! We will provide the tortilla chips. 
  3. skit    The Christmas Shoes "skit" practice Sunday night went wonderfully. You are all tremendous actors & actresses and I think it will be GREAT on Sunday! REMEMBER: Shelby please bring the typewriter/cash register. Snyders please bring an apron. Travis dress like a poor little kid. Chris come in a button down shirt looking adult. :)
  4. next sunday cookie frosting (Katie & Megan providing frosting tips if possible.)
  5. TEMPTATION: I'm pretty sure you will all be tempted this week. Probably even between last night and the time you read this blog post. But you know what? I also believe that through Christ's strength you can say "NO!!" to whatever "sweet" looking sin is staring you in the face. I challenge you. I dare you. To say "no" to whatever Satan trys to throw in your face today. tomorrow. Saturday. No, I won't talk back to my parents. No, I won't punch that guy when he ticks me off. No, I won't swear when I'm upset. No, I won't look at porn. No, I won't wish I could have sex with so-and-so. No, I won't let that kid be bullied. No, I won't stuff my face with junk food when I'm hurt. No, I won't let my emotions run my life. Just for TODAY say "No, I won't."

I can't wait for cookie frosting! The cookies that were made last Sunday looked amazing, and I'm sure the ones we'll make this coming Sunday will look just as good! =]
