Christmas wish list!

Just thought I'd pop in for a bit and let you all know what's on my Christmas list this year!
I'm still technically calling this my last Christmas as the baby of the family, even though I know we're going to be buying a lot of baby stuff for Liz and Joe, the baby won't be here until April so it's still me. Although, even just thinking about having a baby to buy for next year is getting me so freaking excited!! 

Coffee is a new thing for me. I never used to drink it and still find it quite awful tasting but I have been relying on 5 hour energies for a while now and I need to put a stop to it. My mom is letting me borrow her camper Keurig but she said she wants it back by summer so I guess I'll need to get my own! haha

These lens are a must have for me! I just updated my phone to the Iphone 5c and I was really considering going outside the iPhone family to the nokia lumia for it's camera but I was too intimidated about having to learn a whole new phone and I guess they have some limited options for apps. I love my new phone but these little bugs would be the icing on the cake.

Who wouldn't want the complete Boy Meets World Series DVDs?

And of course money or gift cards. Unfortunately, I have a few big ticket items so I might not be getting a lot of that this year. But I have so much I want to buy as well. I haven't been clothes shopping for myself in a while, busy buying groceries and dog food, and the last time I did go shopping I went to Old Navy. Which isn't a bad place anymore (I used to hate it) but I still find myself thinking "Old Navy, really??" I really need to go thrifting soon and I have a craving to hit up Urban Outfitters that my wallet can't fill. But we shall see what the future holds. There's always my birthday in February as well! I'll be 23, what the heck?! And Anna is going to be 25 in December. When did this happen?!




    Is it possible to seek God? Calvinists teach that none seek God. They believe God selects all who will be saved, making it an impossibility to seek HIM. Man-made doctrines are always contrary to Scripture. God's word is always, the last word.

    Acts 15:15-17 With this the words of the Prophets agree, just as it is written, 16 After theses things I will return, And I will rebuild the tabernacle of David which has fallen, And I will restore it, 17 So that the rest of mankind may seek the Lord, And all the Gentiles who are called by My name,

    Prophets of God agree that all mankind may seek the Lord; a sharp contrast to Calvinistic teaching.

    Psalm 10:4 The wicked, in the haughtiness of his countenance, does not seek Him. All his thoughts are, "There is no God."

    The wicked can seek God, however, they choose not to. Pride destroys the desire to seek God.

    Acts 17:26-27 and He made from one man every nation of mankind to live on the face of the earth, having determined their appointed times and boundaries of their habitation, 27 that they seek God, if perhaps they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us;

    Mankind is to seek God. He is there for whoever is willing to find Him.

    Psalm 53:1-2 The fool has said in his heart, "There is no God.".....2 God has looked down from heaven upon the sons of men to see if there is anyone who understands, Who seeks God,

    If God selects men to be saved against their will, He would not have to look down to see who seeks Him.

    Proverbs 8:17 "I love those who love me; And those who diligently seek me will find me.

    God says diligently seek Him. Calvinists proclaim that no man can seek God. Who do you believe?

    2 Chronicles 19:3 But there is some good in you, for you have removed the Asheroth from the land and you have set your heart to seek God."

    Men need to prepare their hearts to seek God.

    Psalm 9:10 And those who know Your name will put their trust in You, For You, O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek You.

    The writer of the Psalms says God will not forsake those who seek God. Those who preach, the John Calvin view of predestination, strongly disagree.

    Matthew 6:33 But seek first His kingdom......

    Jesus says seek God's kingdom. John Calvin says men cannot seek God.

    Hebrews 11:6 ....for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him.

    God rewards those who seek Him.
