Mary, Mary, quite contr(oversial)...

I don’t understand why Protestants have such a problem honoring Mary. Jesus, as a perfect Jew, would have obeyed Jewish Law perfectly. Part of the Law was to honor thy father and mother. If Christians are supposed to be Christ-like and strive to imitate Christ and Christ honored Mary, then shouldn’t we do the same? As Christ was dying on the cross he looked down and: "When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son! Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home." John 19:26-27 (KJV). The disciple whom Jesus loved: THAT IS US! Yes, it may have specifically been referring to John, but it is each one of us as well! Jesus gave His own mother as our mother! We are to take her into our homes and honor her as the Law says!
More on this to come…

My little announcement...

Well, I first want to apologize for being scarce. I described part of the problem in a previous post. The other part is I have not been feeling well lately. Dear Mr. Parker and I are expecting to welcome home a little bundle of joy come spring. This pregnancy will not go as smoothly as the last one, so please keep us in your prayers. I have been really run down lately and have had excruciating headaches, but thankfully my nausea isn't as bad as it was with the last one. My goal is to write one blog per week, so hopefully I won't get too bogged down.
God Bless!!

WOW!!

For some reason my computer has been blocking my access to my blog as well as any other blogger.com blogs. I almost gave up but today thought I'd try it again... I have so many thoughts in my head! I need to get them organized and on here!
