Huntington Beach Ccivilivil War Reenactment

Its is wonderful to watch. The whole family learns so much! Fathers volunteer with their sons, I hope to get clothing for all of us so that we can stay overnight in our own camp while daddy is with the Soldier guys. ( though you don't have to) They do amputations as well. The whole family can watch or volunteer! They are always looking for volunteers. it is so fun to learn so much about history in such a wonderful way! Hope to see you at an event! A history note... Captured sharp shooters were usually executed because they actually AIMED for there targets, where as line infantry would always point to the direction to where they would fire, and it was up to God on who that bullet would killed. Which is why some soldiers closed their eyes while shooting. The berdans on the other hand choose they would kill.
In Jesus. ALidaw4

Isaiah 65:24

Isaiah 65:24

It shall come to pass that BEFORE they call, I WILL answer, and while they are still speaking, I will hear. isn't this so good.what a reminder that before we even ask of the Lord, He is answering.....this encouraged me greatly.the creator of the universe who spoke this world into existence is waiting to hear from me....Jesus already knows our prayer but there is life and healing in the obedience of speaking it to Him i hope it encourages you too.

This story was written by a doctor who worked in South Africa...
One night I had worked hard to help a mother in the labor ward; but
in spite of all we could do, she died leaving us with a tiny premature baby
and a crying two-year-old daughter. We would have difficulty keeping the
baby alive, as we had no incubator (we had no electricity to run an
We also had no special feeding facilities. Although we lived on the
equator, nights were often chilly with treacherous drafts. One student
midwife went for the box we had for such babies and the cotton wool that
the baby would be wrapped in.
Another went to stoke up the fire and fill a hot water bottle. She came
back shortly in distress to tell me that in filling the bottle, it had burst
(rubber perishes easily in tropical climates). "And it is our last hot water
bottle!" she exclaimed. As in the West, it is no good crying over spilled
milk so in Central Africa it might be considered no good crying over burst
water bottles. They do not grow on trees, and there are no drugstores
down forest pathways.
"All right," I said, "put the baby as near the fire as you safely can,
and sleep between the baby and the door to keep it free from drafts.
Your job is to keep the baby warm."
The following noon, as I did most days, I went to have prayers with
any of the orphanage children who chose to gather with me. I gave the
youngsters various suggestions of things to pray about and told them
about the tiny baby. I explained our problem about keeping the baby warm enough, mentioning the hot water bottle, and that the baby could so easily
die if it got chills. I also told them of the two-year-old sister, crying because
her mother had died.
During prayer time, one ten-year old girl, Ruth, prayed with the usual
blunt conciseness of our African children. "Please, God" she prayed, "send
us a water bottle. It'll be no good tomorrow, God, as the baby will be
dead, so please send it this afternoon."
While I gasped inwardly at the audacity of the prayer, she added, "And
while You are about it, would You please send a dolly for the little girl so
she'll know You really love her?"
As often with children's prayers, I was put on the spot. Could I honestly
say,"Amen". I just did not believe that God could do this. Oh, yes, I
know that He can do everything, the Bible says so. But there are limits,
aren't there? The only way God could answer this particular prayer would
be by sending me a parcel from homeland. I had been in Africa for almost
four years at that time, and I had never, ever received a parcel from home.
Anyway, if anyone did send me a parcel, who would put in a hot water
bottle? I lived on the equator! Halfway through the afternoon, while I was
teaching in the nurses' training school, a message was sent that there was
a car at my front door.
By the time I reached home, the car had gone, but there, on the veranda,
was a large twenty-two pound parcel. I felt tears pricking my eyes. I could
not open the parcel alone, so I sent for the orphanage children.
Together we pulled off the string, carefully undoing each knot. We folded
the paper, taking care not to tear it unduly. Excitement was mounting.
Some thirty or forty pairs of eyes were focused on the large cardboard
box. From the top, I lifted out brightly colored, knitted jerseys. Eyes
sparkled as I gave them out. Then there were the knitted bandages for the
leprosy patients, and the children looked a little bored. Then came a box of
mixed raisins and sultanas - that would make a batch of buns for the
weekend. Then, as I put my hand in again, I felt the.....could it really be?
I grasped it and pulled it out - yes, a brand-new, rubber hot water bottle. I
cried. I had not asked God to send it; I had not truly believed that He
could. Ruth was in the front row of the children. She rushed forward,
crying out, "If God has sent the bottle, He must have sent the dolly too!"
Rummaging down to the bottom of the box, she pulled out the small,
beautifully dressed dolly. Her eyes shone! She had never doubted!
Looking up at me, she asked: "Can I g over with you and give this dolly
to that little girl, so she'll know that Jesus really loves her?"
That parcel had been on the way for five whole months. Packed up by my
former Sunday school class, whose leader had heard and obeyed God's
prompting to send a hot water bottle, even to the equator. And one of
the girls had put in a dolly for an African child - five months before, in
answer to the believing prayer of a ten-year-old to bring it "that afternoon."

This is too FUNNY! Clean, and the woman in the clip was from the Women of Faith tour. How many times have you said these things??

Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.

Jesus was the Friend of sinners (Luke 7:34). But the important thing to note is that wherever Jesus went, sinners were permanently and radically impacted by Him. Therefore, when you walk into places where worldly stuff is going on, if people start turning to God and repenting from their sin, go for it! If you’re truly impacting the place you’re in — excellent! But if the place is impacting you, causing your own spirit to sag, get out. Pull away. Back off immediately. ‘Oh, but I’m mature in the Lord,’ you say. ‘So it’s OK for me to go into this business venture even though my partners are unbelievers.’Is it really? I refer you to what happened to one of the greatest men of history …Jehoshaphat was a uniquely blessed man. Revival broke out around him; blessings flowed from him; good things came to him. And then, as his life is coming to an end, there’s a P.S. in his story …And after this did Jehoshaphat king of Judah join himself with Ahaziah king of Israel who did very wickedly: And he joined himself with him to make ships to go to Tarshish … 2 Chronicles 20:35-36A godly Jehoshaphat joined with an ungodly Ahaziah in the shipping business. But the venture sunk.You might have walked with the Lord for 30 or 40 years or more. Don’t be like Jehoshaphat, saying, ‘This might not be God’s best for me — but I know my ship will come in eventually.’ A person might become rich financially by joining with an unbeliever, but what does it profit him if he gain the whole world and lose his soul (Mark 8:36)? What good is it if it causes him to be only a shell of what he once was spiritually?What’s your legacy, dad? At one time, you were about the things of the Kingdom; you were a servant, a leader, a worker. But now you’re known as a business whiz. How tragic. Don’t be yoked with unbelievers in any endeavor which will cause you to be sink spiritually.
