New Beginnings

After a very long, very trying, and ultimately very frustrating year, I have made the decision to leave my job.  Not forever, but with 3 children and a house that is still not quite finished, we were running short of time.  Time for the family, time to relax and time to be ourselves.  I had become lost in trying to keep up with everything that needed to be done, my family and I were struggling in everyday life, and we all felt that we had lost a little bit of the glue that sticks us together.  After a very busy period at work, that was showing no signs of relenting, I eventually decided to give up something that had been very important to me.

I have been training or working in engineering consultancy for half my life, which makes it a very hard decision.  I had reached the point where I had become defined by my job, and had lost a great deal of what makes me, me.  I am eternally grateful that my husband agreed with me, and together we are starting this new chapter in our lives.

So, here I am - back to blogging.  This is one of the things that I have definitely missed doing - writing about my crafting, home experiments and running.  And of course, the ever long battle against the custard creams!  I hope you would like to join me on my journey and see where I go with being a stay at home parent, while we create a new normal for our family.

  1. THE PARALLEL OF PENTECOST AND PAUL'S CONVERSION BY STEVE FINNELL

    What are the parallels of the conversions to Jesus Christ on the Day of Pentecost and that of the conversion of the apostle Paul on the road to Damascus?

    1. At Pentecost they believed Jesus was Lord And Christ.(Acts 2:36)
    Paul believe Jesus was Lord.(Acts 9:4-5)

    2. At Pentecost they asked what they should do. (Acts 2:37)

    Paul asked "Lord what do you want me to do"(Acts 9:6)

    3. At Pentecost, the 3000 repented, and were immersed in water for the forgiveness of their sins and then they received the gift of the Holy Spirit.(Acts 2:38)

    Paul went to Damascus where he was baptized in water for the forgiveness of his sins and he was filled with the Holy Spirit. Acts 22:16,Acts 9:17-18)

    Paul's sins were not forgiven "on the road" to Damascus, they were forgiven in Damascus.(Acts 22:10-16)

    Paul was not filled with the Holy Spirit "on the road" to Damascus. He was filled with the Holy Spirit in Damascus. (Acts 9:10-19)

    Paul believed that Jesus was Lord "on the road' to Damascus, however, he was not saved from his sins on the road nor was he filled with the Holy Spirit on the road.(Acts 9:3-9)

    Paul was saved in Damascus. He was not saved on the road to Damascus. He was NOT SAVED BEFORE HE WAS BAPTIZED IN WATER! You cannot be saved until your sins have been forgiven.
