Getting into the Christian Way of Life

Jesus-Loves-Me-kids-tshirtI was raised as a Catholic, went through many of the sacraments and did not feel the closeness with God and Jesus until I had children and found a Christian church. You can say that my children and I discovered God and Jesus together. The kids have always gone to the Sunday classes and participated in the outings with the church class. They like the bonding that goes on with the group and the feeling of acceptance.

Recently I found some great Christian childrens t-shirts on a website and decided that this would make a good Christmas gift for them. Of course I have to buy toys and games also but I think that these Christian childrens t-shirts are so cute that they will like them also. This year I am going to shop early to avoid the crowds.

Bea Calls Jude For Help with Water

“Hi Jude, this is Bea.  How you doin’ today?”

 “I’m doin’ fine girl.  How’s ya doin’ is da question’?  Ain’t heard from you in days.  What’s up?”

 “Well I just read your letter to Jael’s people and I wanted to know if you could help me with water savings too!”
 “Hmmmmmmm.  I don’t know Bea.  I thought your son-in-law and his friends was helping you?”

 “Well, course they did help me with a lots of things.  But from what you say in your letter, you seem to know much more about water savings than those boys.”

 “But what did you do already Bea?  I only have so much time to work on these things?”

 “O.K. O.K. I knows you’re busy Brother.  I just thought you could help a Christian sister.  Well, let’s see.  I traded in my old washing machine for a water-saver washer, and I even got a $ 100 rebate from the county.  I checked on their programs and got the machines they approved.  And that’s what I bought.   Then I called them up to see what help they could give on a new low-flow toilet, and they came out and replaced the toilet for me.  Wasn’t that a good thing to do Jude?”

 “Absolutely!  And you saved money too! Good for you Bea.  You did right!”

 “Hmmmmm.  Let’s see.  Yes, yes,  I bought two new rain barrels and had the boys set them up under the downspouts.  Now I use the saved rainwater to water the vegetable garden, to wash the car, and to water all my plants inside the house.  And I only water the lawn early in the morning so the water don’t vaporate. Course I don’t wash dishes or cook with that water, but it is sure handy for lots of chores.  And I’ve really seen a difference in the water bill.”

 “O.K. Sounds good.  So it don’t seem you need any help from me Bea.”

 “Well I wanted you to please put in one of those special shower heads . . . and uh . . . could you please reseed  my grass with that special kind o’ grass you wrote about, and put in some of those rocks and stones for me?”

 “Oh, Bea I don’t know.  That’s a lot of work.  And them things costs runs up.
I just did a garden for Ethel up the street and it took a lot of time.”

 “Ethel?  who’s Ethel?”

 “She’s just a widow woman lives up the street.  Well Bea I’s got to go.  I’ll call you back soon.  Thanks.”

 “Jude, Jude wait.  Remember what it says in Christian prayer books. We’s all suppose to help, love and support one another first!  Is this here Ethel a Christian?  Jude . . Jude . . . are you there?”
