Read Gabe’s post about The DaVinci Code. This book is a work of Satan, aimed at throwing people off the track to finding Jesus. Satan will use whatever means he can to cast doubt on what scripture tells us. There will be a lot of people who believe the book, just because it’s in a book. They won’t do their homework, and they are not familiar with scripture, so it will make perfect sense to many. How sad.
Rom 4:3…What does the Scripture say? NIV
Gal 4:30…..But what does the Scripture say? NIV
Think God wants us to check what the scripture says?
2 Tim 3:16-17…..16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17 so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. NIV


I posted Sunday about the Mother’s Day ceremony taking place at our Veteran’s cemetery in Houston, honoring the mothers of those who have died in war. Here is Monday’s article describing the ceremony.

Mothers’ sacrifices honored

<!– commented out ad



Tears were shed at the Mother’s Day ceremony at the Houston National Cemetery, where about 50 people paid tribute to a dozen Houston-area mothers whose children died while serving their country.

The women each lost one or more children who were serving in the military, one as recent as two weeks ago and another during World World II.

“It’s the sacrifice and honor we owe them,” said Margarito “Gunny” Vasquez, commander of the Disabled American Veterans’ San Jacinto Chapter 1, who organized the event. “They kept our freedom alive.”

Brigadier General Henry Ostermann, a native Texan and father of six who serves as deputy commander of the 90th Regional Readiness Command, was the keynote speaker.

Vasquez, a retired Marine, said the mothers deserve help in keeping alive the memories of their children.

The pain of losing a child will never go away, he said, “but at least they know that they’re not forgotten.”

“Remembrance: Mary Denton, right, begins to weep beside Luella Bolding, of Manvel, as a dozen Houston-area mothers who lost children serving in the U.S. military were honored during  a special Mother’s Day service Sunday at the Houston National Cemetery. Denton lost four of her eight sons during military service, while Bolding lost her son, Lance Cpl. Todd Bolding, in Iraq in 2004.”

Mrs. Bolding works at NASA, as does my sister. When Todd was killed, my sister sent us an email about it. I just happen to have a picture of Todd’s headstone that Bethany took  July 2, 2004, when we were at the cemetery taking pictures for a July 4 presentation at church. The headstone to the left is Scott Larson. Beth and I went to that funeral in April 2004.

  1. Cindy, I’ve been reading online news articles of the movie critics reviews of Da Vinci Code.  Nobody liked it.  Hopefully it will bomb.

  2. I think that would be great. I hope you’re right. I do know of someone who loved the book and couldn’t wait for the movie. I have to ask, “Why?” I also wonder why, when this was written as fiction, are some people taking it to be the gospel?

  3. “For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.”2 Thessalonians 2:11-12

  4. Thank you, Doug. I was thinking of that scripture earlier, but forgot to put it in the post. That is perfect. My question of why is really more for those who say they are Christian, but don’t know enough about scripture to recognize a lie.

  5. If you feel lead to please do this: I saw this from Imameanmomsoyeah –

    Please pray for my Xanga Friend Grace- She is about the same age as my daughter and is dying of cancer. Today’s post was so heartbreaking as she hared that the chemo and other drugs are not helping and the cancer is spreading throughout her body. It also really got to me to hear that as I prepare to celebrate my daughter’s graduation, Grace will not get to graduate.
    Please note that she has Leukemia. Thank you, Sharon in GA

    The pain of losing a child will never go away, he said, “but at least they know that they’re not forgotten.”
    i agree with what he said.. have a great day and God bless you.

  7. Mike was telling me tonight that the History Channel was actually “taking a swing” at the movie, which was of course based on the book . . . that some of the main premises of the book are presented as though they were fact. But IN FACT, there is no basis for the premises. :goodjob:——-:heartbeat:I appreciated the article above – Thanks for sharing it.

  8. Carolyn, that may have been the same show we saw on the History Channel last week. I was impressed, and shocked, that a tv show was actually bring out the false ideas behind it.
