Rain, rain…thank you, Lord!

raincloudraincloudraincloudraincloudraincloud

Today is a very rainy day in southeast Texas. I’m glad we aren’t moving today, and I’m glad I don’t have to go anywhere.

Yesterday I went to get new tags for my car, deposit Sunday’s offering in the bank, shopped at Walmart (spent $250, so it was a large shopping trip), did 3 loads of laundry, emptied and washed litter boxes, and scrubbed and mopped the ceramic tile floor by our front door.

I’m not doing as much today. I am doing more laundry, dishes, and trying to straighten up the living room a little. I’ve got a long way to go. I have hazelnut creme candles burning and it smells good.


I have seen this subject on several blogs in the last few weeks, and I got this video from Gail (Gail2). When I first saw it a month or so ago, I Googled this subject, and just got tears in my eyes. I got excited. Watch the video first.

Here is an explanation of laminin. But they don’t show you any pictures. Probably for good reason. On the left is a drawing of laminin. On the right is a picture through an electron microscope:

The description says it has 3 short arms and one long. Another site chose to say it looked like a sword. Anything to keep from saying it’s a cross. We probably all know people who absolutely refuse to see the truth.

This is the adhesive that glues our bodies together. I have read several blogs making fun of Christians seeing the cross in the drawing. They say it’s “science,” and make fun of Christians not believing in science. Well, I DO believe in science….but I believe God is the author of science. Intelligent Christians don’t want to throw science out the window. They just believe in science that is in line with God’s word. Non-Christians see scripture and science as polar opposites. Boy are they in for a surprise!

Col 1:16-17

16 Christ is the one through whom God created everything in heaven and earth. He made the things we can see and the things we can’t see — kings, kingdoms, rulers, and authorities. Everything has been created through him and for him.

17 He existed before everything else began, and he holds all creation together.
NLT

  1. LOL ~ our weather tooooooooo has been awful.  Gale force winds, rain, freezing!!!  Glad we didn’t have to move either!!! That vid is totally amazing….I am in awe of God!
    Love the background btw.

  2. Amen!!  Double amen!!  Science is beautiful when it’s real and true science.  Not that fake, unprovable stuff that passes as science.

  3. We have had so much rain around here, that our lakes and rivers are at flood stage.  They are saying they should crest by tomorrow morning.  So many homes, last year, were damaged from the flooding.  Now we are going through it again!  Want some of our rain????? 🙂

  4. @CH1216a – No…thanks, really, but you can keep it. I appreciate the offer, though. I know you’re just thinking of others :ROTFL: :hammer: I just got an email from Carolyn (razehell) about the flooding in North Dakota. That’s where she’s from.

  5. :wave: i SO needed to see that video about Laminin! It is amazingly wonderful and I can’t wait to pass it on!  Oh, I wish we could have some of your rain to wash the pollen away! And Phx. area needs it to wash the pollution out of the sky!  Have a great RESTFUL evening! Didya see that? RESTful! You need to be in fine form for your birthday on Sunday! love, Gail in AZ.

  6. Science is a very neat thing esp. when it points us to the Lord.  I hope that you did get some down time today.  The weather here in MN has not been nice either.  I so would go to Hawaii now.  I am going to make it a point to go sometime.  Take care.  Have a good weekend.  Blessings.   

  7. Not too long ago, the Christian Church put anyone to death who suggested the idea that the Earth revolves around the Sun. So much for “science that is in line with God’s word”.

  8. @waywardgame – Why do you think that proves anything? There have always been people who did not do things according to God’s word, and the situation you describe is one of them. God’s word never says to do that anywhere. It was just sinful humans deciding to do things their own way instead of God’s way.

  9. @SingingMom – You missed the point entirely. The Bible supports a geocentric universe (Sun revolves around the Earth); however, it’s abundantly clear that the Earth revolves around the Sun (heliocentric). You say that good science is science in line with God’s word (the Bible), but in this case, science and God’s word conflict. So, according to your standards, the Sun revolves around the Earth.

  10. @SingingMom – For example,Joshua 10:12-13 “Then spake Joshua to the LORD in the day when the LORD delivered up the Amorites before the children of Israel, and he said in the sight of Israel, Sun, stand thou still upon Gibeon; and thou, Moon, in the valley of Ajalon. And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the people had avenged themselves upon their enemies. Is not this written in the book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and hasted not to go down about a whole day.” Geocentrism was believed by the most intelligent Christians of the day.

  11. @waywardgame – 
    No, that’s just a misunderstanding of that scripture. Joshua was asking God to lengthen the day so that he could continue to fight that battle. And God did it. It’s simply that from the standpoint of someone on the earth looking up at the sky, it would appear that the sun and moon “stood still.” God simply stopped the rotation of the earth for a short time.
    And it doesn’t matter if the most intelligent “Christians” believed that. It was a mistaken belief. Intelligence is not the key…obedience to God is. See, God promises that if we truly seek Him, and obey Him, he will give us knowledge and wisdom. A person can call themselves Christian, but still not be obedient enough to Him that God gives them the knowledge to understand the complexity of scripture. And that even includes people you would think would certainly understand it, such as religious leaders. After all, the Jewish leaders knew scripture forwards and backwards, as far as memorizing it. But they still didn’t understand it.

  12. @SingingMom – And yet for hundreds of years Christians have accepted the idea of Geocentrism, even persecuting those who thought differently. It just goes to show you that Christians, mainly creationists, have absolutely no idea what they’re talking about.
