If you liked some of my jewelry…

some of my  purses…

then it might be her work!

Check it out at:

I’m in some of the photos too!

She does amazing work.

The leather she finds is some of the most unique I’ve ever seen.

One year Anniversary of Anchors: 1-24-09

Jan. 24, 2009 – Pastor Jeff

John 16:7


The Helper is comin’

Good that I go

Receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you.


Beneficial to be in God

Free from sin.

He who the Son sets free is free indeed.

Life in the Spirit.

Don’t be ignorants of spiritual gifts.

I Cor 2: 12 = know the things freely given to us of God

Holy Spirit empowers us,

helps us,

power to be witness,

power in prayer.

Jesus Christ came = exact representation of the Father’s nature.

Radicalizes our lives.

Keep getting opportunity to be offended… from multiple, unexpected areas

… people…

… o’well…


(Grace = I offend people regularly = repent and forgive)

Romans 8: 14 from the Catholic Bible: those who follow the leading of God’s Holy Spirit, don’t follow the 5 senses or reasoning powers of the mind

Proverbs 20: 27

Hebrews 4: 12

I Thess. 4: 23 (?)

John 4 = God is Spirit.

Soul and Spirit are two different words in original language.

Spirit of God guides us into all truth.

P. Jeff attributes success in his life to leading of the Holy Spirit.

Proverbs 3 = lean not into your own understanding.

Precision accuracy… relationships…career… choices.

Holy Spirit will deliver us from error.

Bring honor and glory to Jesus Christ,

this is the Holy Spirit’s role.

Holy Spirit wants to reveal things to you.

God is the author of peace,

not confusion.

Proverbs 20: 27

Bible reading gives you sensitivity…

sensitivity increases the following of the Holy Spirit,


He will deliver you from people!

De-mystify the Holy Spirit… He was poured out on ALL flesh.

Born into family,

given amazing light to see and follow His Spirit.

It’s an amazing advantage.

If walk in the spirit, you won’t carry out the desires of the flesh.

Renew the spirit of your mind.


fuel for your spirit.

Reap what you sow… corruption and decay if you sow to the flesh.

Life and peace if you sow to the spirit.

Spirit of a man is lamp of the Lord…

NASB version of Prov. 20: 17

Your inner man = like an antenna that can pick up voice of the Holy Spirit.

Sheep will not follow the voice of a stranger.

When you are born-again, you are activated to hear God…

you are alive to Him…

it’s a relationship with God!

God gives us His Spirit.

You give your heart to Jesus.

Dial in and get from God,

then do it.

The Helper leads you into all truth…

supernatural perspective.

Sow to the Spirit.

Develop yourself.

It will keep you out of the ditch…

or from whipping up your own thing…

or from inactivity.

Crucify your flesh and keep your body under on a daily basis.

Be sensitive to the still, small voice of the inner witness.

Jude 20

Acts 16: 6 = Holy Spirit would not let them preach.

Atmosphere of receptivity to God’s promptings.

vs. 9 = vision = God’s leadership.

Deeper than still, small voice or inner-man.

God wants us to develop.

Inner voice.

My sheep follow My voice.

Walk in spirit and don’t fulfill the desires of the flesh.

Timing… God has timing. Lydia, the seller of purple cloth was the first European convert ever… her whole household… God had a plan.

Don’t get freaked out.

Right place at the right time.

Ya gotta be led by God!

on ‘Inferno Red’

This is the name of the paint on my PT Cruiser…

when I bought it (May 2003),

it was the one thing I wasn’t particularly happy with…


I went to my Spanish-refresher course later that week

(mission trip to the Baja, Mexico to orphanages at Christmas time).

My teacher attended SLFC as well (still does),


she’s a delightful person.

She told me that Inferno Red was perfect

because I was snatching them out of the flames!


Today I was reading in “Jesus-Day by Day”

by Beth Moore

on my lunch break:

Jude 22-23 – “Have mercy on some who doubt,

save others by snatching them from the fire.”


How did she know that was in the Bible!!!

on change

Today I received an email

talking about how people don’t deal well with change…

I don’t like change,


this quote by Tuli Kupferburg helped:

“When patterns are broken,

new worlds emerge.”


Ain’t that the truth!

on posters…

Today I was able to use the counselor’s office to do a few re-screens

(vision and hearing)


spent some time enjoying her posters while waiting for students:

“Character Traits…

caring, respect, trustworthiness, self-discipline, responsibility, citizenship, perseverance, fairness, integrity, honesty”

“How to get along with others…

Use kind words, be quick to forgive, listen, share, encourage others, take turns, think before acting, talk it over”

“Ways to Cope…

Run, dance, draw, keep a journal, talk to a friend, cry, read a book,clean your room, play hard, set some goals, listen to music, play an instrument, spend time with a friend, plant something, write a letter, go for a walk, reorganize your room, dig in the dirt, yell in your pillow, help someone else”

on introspection

Saturdays are becoming my day to indulge in my introvert ways.

According to Carl Jung

– Introverts tend to be preoccupied with their own thoughts

and feelings and minimize their contact with other people.


I’m also noticing more days of creativity.

For which I am eternally grateful.

Life is short.

Growing up I use to draw – doodle – create daily…

by the end of college I was drawing less and less.

By 5 years into my career,

I was barely taking the time to create anything.

Aaah, but lost things can be restored by God.

Enjoy balance!

balance – general harmony between parts – The expression denotes great want and scarcity in Rev. 6:5.

introspection–noun – observation or examination of one’s own mental and emotional state, mental processes, etc.; the act of looking within oneself.
