Jorge and I have struggled in this area for a long time. Family members have turned their backs on us because we don't follow their church standards. Which is sad a true child of God would never do such a cruel selfish thing. Jesus loves all sinners and sin come in all forms. We pray for them....
We do our studies as a married couple and we also do our studies as individual seeking comfort and knowledge in HIS word. http://www.bibleinayear.org/ Now this is not for everyone. God gave us all a gift called FREE WILL and through this we respect this gift as a gift of choice. Our choosing of how we will live our lives BUT a warning - what you choose you will have to answer for through death and when that moment comes, all chips are turned in. And so don't go thinking we are preachy because that's not for us to do. All walks of life should be respected for their own choices in life and we should concentrate on ourselves before even considering giving that sermon out. Jorge says the best way to be preachy is in not in the face but by example - much kinder, less drama, and with loyal love. He's a much better person then I am.
But on the road we haven't meet many people who celebrate the word of God but the bottle of booze (I'm not talking about a glass of wine here and there but a 30 pack in a day or two - blame the world for its problems and self lacking in human respect). The few we have meet have such beauty of free spirit and discipline character we are inspired by them.
This blog entry is not to be anything but about personal thoughts and about how we view things and so I will stick to that. We pray at every meal even when going out (we just say our prayer silent because we do this for ourselves) to dinner or such. We give thanks to each and every blessing no matter how big or small and so we tend to chat to God as much as we communicate to each other and Jorge says more to be honest.
We are at a RV park where a miracle happen - our biggest blessing because the outcome could of killed so many people including our dear friends. He is here and he is in each of us if we just look and except. Here I go getting preachy again. It's my prayer for the world...
There are many groups out there for RV folks that fit this blog entry if you wish to check it out...
