There are those times where you just have to sit down and thank the Creator for blessing you for living in Chiloquin, Oregon, so close to so many awesome sights. This was one of those times!

I would love to check this out!


 

“Russian architect Alexander Remizov made a prototype design he calls “The Ark” which he believes is the answer to the climate change and natural disaster problems, several international news sites reported.

The design resembles a giant Slinky toy, and was said to be able to withstand earthquakes, floods and tornadoes. It is independent of any external support systems such as electricity, allowing it to exist in any kind of climate.”

Christian Atlases

A pair of quotes from Brennan Manning I would like to share …

“God’s love is based on nothing, and the fact that it is based on nothing makes us secure. Were it based on anything we do, and that “anything” were to collapse, then God’s love would crumble as well. But with the God of Jesus no such thing can possibly happen. People who realize this can live freely and to the fullest. Remember Atlas, who carries Brennan Manning the whole world? We have Christian Atlases who mistakenly carry the burden of trying to deserve God’s love. Even the mere watching of this lifestyle is depressing. I’d like to say to Atlas: ‘Put that globe down and dance on it. That’s why God made it.’ And to the weary Christian Atlases: “Lay down your load and build your life on God’s love.” We don’t have to earn this love; neither do we have to support it. It is a free gift. Jesus calls out: “Come to me, all you Atlases who are weary and find life burdensome, and I will refresh you.”

“The saved sinner is prostrate in adoration, lost in wonder and praise. He knows repentance is not what we do in order to earn forgiveness; it is what we do because we have been forgiven. It serves as an expression of gratitude rather than an effort to earn forgiveness. Thus the sequence of forgiveness and then repentance, rather than repentance and then forgiveness, is crucial for understanding the gospel of grace.”

Amen!


Flirt to Convert

I came across this site calling all “hot women of the Lord” to missionary dating! Here is the link to the site:

http://datetosave.com/

And here is the profile of the lady who runs the site:

Hello, my name is Tamara! As you can probably tell, I’m a Christian woman who loves Jesus Christ and cares for all humans, even the wicked. What you probably don’t know is that I’m hot. My picture below isn’t really that good. I want to use my beauty for GOD, and want to encourage Christian women (my sisters in Christ) to do the same, according to the Great Commission.

Any thoughts on this …. ummmmmm … endeavor?

A Cool Treehouse in Sweden!

Posted in holidays, odds and ends with tags , , , , , , , on July 25, 2010 by Tim R Wilson

Where do I sign up?

This is one of six units in a “Treehotel,” which recently opened 40 miles south of the Arctic Circle in Sweden.The four-meter glass cube looks as spectacular in reality as it did in the rendering.

And what about the birds? According to Designboom, Lindvall says that a special film that is visible to birds will be applied to the glass.

Kent Lindvall, co-owner of the TreeHotel, has been quoted as saying:

“Everything will reflect in this — the trees, the birds, the clouds, the sun, everything. So it should be invisible nearly in the forest.”

“This is untouched forest, and we want to maintain it the same way. We decided, for example, to not offer snowmobile safari which is very common up here,” says Selberg. Instead, wilderness walks will be offered.”

Yep … Sign me up!

Improve Your Sex Life With Goat Weed?

Posted in humor, odds and ends with tags , , , on July 16, 2010 by Tim R Wilson

Used for over 2,000 years in China, Yin Yang Huo, known here as Horny Goat Weed, has been used to improve energy and the sex lives of both men and women. The leaves of the plant contain a variety of flavonoids, one of which icarin, is believed to play a role in restoring sexual interest, boost erectile function, allay fatigue and alleviate menopausal discomfort. In the legend of Ying Yang Huo, the leaves were purportedly the food of the ying yang, a mythical beast which achieved 100 sexual climaxes a day! It has a honored place in traditional Chinese medicine naturally.

In the United States, goat weed has become somewhat of a phenomenon, and according to this article, science is beginning to back that claim. In a study by Dr. Steven Lamm and Gerald Secor Cousins, 25 healthy men and 13 men who used Viagra received doses of the product for 45 days, then 60 days. Results of the double blind study showed that daily use of the herb resulted in the sexual enhancement in 60% of healthy males and 45% of the men using Viagra. Considering the long history of positive results and this study is the indication it just might work! I have a friend who says they can’t keep the stuff stocked at the local Wal Mart! More studies obviously are being conducted to support these conclusions.
