Generations Past

“Days fly by quickly and children move on. Before we know it the “old times” are gone. But as we look back at generations gone by, We, reflect on the memories that serve as a tie. Binding us together With future and past; and building a story that forever will last.”  Author: Shannon Fahine

 “Change is inevitable. Growth is optional.” John Maxwell

There are absolutes that define what is real and what is not. Thus, actions can be deemed right or wrong based upon how they measure up against these absolute standards.” Daniel W. Jarvis

“Our perspective on absolute truth should be determined by the one who is the ultimate authority, or maker, of all things. (This follows because the maker of all things has defined reality, thus becoming the standard for what we understand to be real.) For those who believe that the “maker” was God (a personal, all-powerful Intelligent Being), absolute truth is derived from properly understanding who God is and what His ‘will’ is for His creation.”  ULTIMATE ASSUMPTIONS

“God’s commands to us are actually given to the life of the Son in us. . . If I am in the habit of continually holding God’s standards in front of me, my conscience will always direct me to God’s perfect law and indicate what I should do. . .  And the only thing that keeps our conscience sensitive to Him is the habit of being open to God on the inside.” Oswald Chambers
