Is Anyone Out There?

I am not sure I have many readers for my blog and am seriously thinking of closing it down! BUT, in the meantime, here's one last howdy-do.

I've had a wonderful winter speaking to ladies groups, notably, to the two most recent. I addressed a fabulous gathering, "Clipped Wings," which included 150 charming retired Delta Airlines folks. Not only did they laugh at my stories and cheer me on, but they also bought lots and lots of books. And they treated me to a yummy lunch at a lovely Atlanta Italian spot. Special thanks to my friend, Bea, a former president, for arranging the event. I had a blast!

Secondly, just this Thursday, another darling friend, Beth, had me talk to an organization she adores, as do I, PEO. A women's service group and sisterhood, these remarkable ladies were extremely hospitable and welcoming. They, too, fed me in a member's fabulous home. Sounds like I work for food!

No, this is not entirely true. I work to encourage other artists to pursue their creative endeavors and to follow their dreams, whether it's to become a painter, a writer, or, perhaps even better, to become the most satisfied and complete person they can be. As for me, I just happen to have found my path by becoming an author.

My next major adventure is Monte Sano Writers Conference in Huntsville, Alabama on April 5. It's right up my alley, too, with the theme being "What Makes You Come Alive?"
This is an especially good topic for Spring 2014 given the dreadfully nasty winter we've experienced or may still experience. Yikes!
Their topic also gets my juices boiling to think of the eager participants who want to create. So I'd best get busy preparing my talks and lesson plans right now! For addition information, contact msumc@knology.net.

Stay warm and be creative! Milam

  1. YOU WILL DIE IN YOUR SINS

    Many, who profess to be Christians, claim the Jesus is just one of many ways to heaven. If men would simply believe that the Bible is the only inerrant source for truth they could not reach that conclusion.

    John 8:24 "Therefore I said to you that you will die in your sins;for if you do not believe that I am He, you will die in your sins."(NKJV)

    If you do not believe that Jesus is the Christ you will die in your sins. No man-made creed book can change that fact. To reject Jesus as the Messiah is the clear path to dying without forgiveness from sins.

    John 4:25-26 The woman said to Him, "I know that Messiah is coming" (who is called Christ). When He comes, He will tell us all things." 26 Jesus said to her, "I who speak to you am He."(NKJV)

    It does not matter how many Bible commentators or self-proclaimed Bible scholars believe Jesus is one of many ways to heaven, Jesus is the only Messiah.

    John 14:6 Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. (NKJV)

    One way Jesus.

    Acts 4:10-12.....name of Jesus Christ....12 "Nor is salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved."(NKJV)

    Pope Francis says atheists who do good works can go to heaven. Billy Graham proclaims that you do not even have to know the name of Jesus to be part of the body of Christ. Joel Osteen say he does not know if unbelievers will be lost or saved because he cannot judge. These professing Christians are not alone in their views. How sad is that?

    PEW FORUM OF RELIGION AND PUBLIC LIFE: 57% of the evangelical church believes there are many religions that lead to eternal life.

    IF YOU TRUST THE BIBLE AND THE BIBLE ALONE FOR THE TRUTH, YOU WILL BELIEVE THE WORDS OF JESUS. "IF YOU DO NOT BELIEVE THAT I AM HE YOU WILL DIE IN YOUR SINS."
