Paging Dr. Caylin


I love playing doctor on Mommy and Daddy. I say, "Do you have a d-pointment."

This is what I ask:


What is your name? Becky G. Mommy says.

What hurts? Mommy says her belly.

What did you eat? Pumpkin cake Mommy says.

Medicine can make you all better.

If you have a headache tell me.

Mommy asks if she is done. I say not yet!

Andrew came to visit!


My daddy's racing friend Jeff came down from Michigan with his wife Elizabeth, and their son Andrew. We had the best time playing together!

Noah's Birthday Party


I had a fun time at Noah's birthday party. We got to make our own pizza. We got to pat it out and make it flat. Then we added our pizza sauce and cheese. Noah's daddy baked our pizza in the oven and then we got to eat it. It was YUMMY!
Noah's mommy made the birthday cake and boy was it good! I like to eat the frosting first.
I had the best time being at his birthday! Thanks Noah!

This yard needs mowed!


I decided to help Mommy mow the yard! I like to mow while Mommy is mowing!

T-Ball and Old Car Rides


Check out my new t-ball equipment Grammy and PaPa got me! They got me a new pink batting helmet, pink balls, a pink glove, a pink bat, and a batting tee that my daddy used when he played baseball. Thanks Grammy and PaPa!
I love going on old car rides with Grammy and PaPa. It is so much fun! PaPa and I both like getting ice cream when we go on our rides. We usually go to Harzlers Dairy. Yummy Yummy!

These Trees Smell

Mommy wanted me to get our picture taken in front of the pear tree. I told her that tree it too smelly! I do like the flowers on it though!

BEAUTIFUL DAY






I am an outside girl. I love it when it gets warm outside. I can ride bikes, play with my neighborhood friends, play ball, take my baby for walks, help Mommy and Daddy in the yard, and draw with sidewalk chalk.




I love to draw. Check out my fish in the water. I mainly like to draw people though.

Playing Ball



It was so nice outside that I had to play ball! I like it when Mommy kicks the ball up on the roof and it falls off! It is hilarious!

Road Rash


Daddy had to take this picture of the road rash on my leg! I fell off my bike and I didn't even cry! Daddy has had lots of road rash! Mommy says pretty soon Daddy won't have any normal skin left!
Riding bikes is so much fun!

Big Races.....

I would like to do them all but I work for a living, cycling is just for fun. Sometimes you like doing the big races as long as you don't wreck. Since I am not fit enough for Road racing, Crit races will have to do. I have never liked doing crit races and the best part is when the crit is done and no blood is dripping off your body or no broken bones. Still after all the wrecks I have been in I still go back for more. I guess riding 8 hours a week avg for the year and lining up at the same line with all the Big pros is cool. That is the last time I see them though, unless God powers me to the line with them. I always look back and wonder how that happened. I get dropped on some of the local club rides. Well that is the great thing about cycling you can save 30 % of your energy sitting in the field and so if they are putting out 400 watts you only have to put out 280 watts. You can even keep up with the big boys if you are 50 years old. Just riding the bike is fun for me I could do it without racing every weekend. The only thing that keeps me going back to races is I love to compete. I have never been one to compete only or by myself but when the season starts it helps me to get into shape, racing shape. This saturday will be my second race but will be more like my first, since my first race was almost 7 weeks ago. So I don't know what God has planned for me but maybe by your votes and comments it will help us decide.

Please Vote!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you

Jeremy

IX Indoor Amusement Park






Mommy and Grandma took me to the IX Indoor Amusement Park last Saturday! I had a blast! I rode lots of fun rides! My favorite is the swings. They had lots of different versions of the swings. I got Mommy to ride a roller coaster with me! I even put my hands up! I am a dare devil! I get that from my Daddy. He isn't afraid of anything! At the end of the day I even got to meet Snow White. She was so pretty! I definitely want to go back next year! PLEASE

Church post over due

Well Church at OCC has been awesome!

The first question was: Are we going to recognize each other in heaven, and, if we do, will we feel sad when we do not see some of our family and friends there?

I will give the short version since I am behind on everything.

Yes we will be able to recognize others in Heaven and we will be filled with joy in Heaven. It was great to be in Church that Sunday and so awesome to read from the bible on this question. We will receive a new body. John explained it very clearly. When someone calls us over the phone we know who it is by there voice. Jesus was not clearly recognized at first but they all knew it was Him after a second take. Would you recognize someone that had been dead for 3 days? I wouldn't even think about it so it would take at least three times and doubt until I would spend time with Him.

#2 question was: Is everything or anything predestined by God?

Some things are predestined be God. Jesus will return, for it is predestined by God. God has allowed us to make our choices. We may make good choices or we make bad ones. God allows us to make choice. So some things are and some are not.

#3 question was:“Can my prayer change God’s mind?”

Yes it can! God loves for us to pray to Him. But when we ask for prayer be careful how you ask. God will answer your prayer but it may not be the way you want it.

I am so glad we are doing this series, Thank you John Mulpas!

John has given us wonderful scriptures on all the questions, it has been great.

Our church attendence has also been up as well.

T-ball starts here soon and I pray for sunny wednesdays to come.

Coach Grimm or Grimm Fairy Tales

Well sometimes I think of things and sometimes I shouldn't think. What do you think about me coaching? I am not to sure on the idea but sometimes you just have to have someone else make a decision for you or just go for it no matter what they say. I am not for sure? I wouldn't dare charge anyone though, that is for sure.

Sponsor a Race?

I have been thinking about planning rides or planning a race what do you think? I was going to do rides on a thursday or tuesday around 4:00pm-5:00pm starting at or around the OCC church. Or just plan a race this year, which would take some sponsors to do this one. Rides would take up more time but it may get our local youth involved. What should I do, please vote at the poll. Thanks!

Brecksville Canceled?

I thought this was weird since I just took a training ride over the race course with about 20 others. They must be doing road repairs on good roads? Let me know maybe I was sleeping while I was riding. Here is the link: http://chippewacreekrr.webs.com/

Race at the Lake

To let you know where I will be racing close to home I have posted where I will be racing next.

On Saturday April 19th I will be racing at Race at the Lake. My race starts at 11:45 AM and there are other races before mine. My race will last 1 hour and is the last race. This race is located at a very nice Park with a new play ground in Munroe Falls. This drive takes 45 mins to 55 mins from downtown Orrville. The best way to explain how to get there from Orrville is to go: 57 north, turn right onto 585, go north on route 21, then go east on route 76 toward the University of Akron, then go north on route 8, turn right or head east on Howe Ave, you will pass Chapel Hill Mall and lots of great places to eat, then turn left or head north on route 91 or it may have other names like (North ave or South Main street or Darrow road) but I think it says route 91, next turn right on S River road it is the first road you can turn right on, if you pass the Citgo gas station you have gone to far, next turn right into the Munroe Falls Metropolitan park, you don't pay anything to park everything is free so just go buy the entrance with the park rangers and there should be a barrier at the top of the hill so take a left and then a quick right into the parking area. Be carful and go slow once you get on S River road lots of cyclist. Restrooms are in the big building across the race course so be careful crossing the street. It is better to cross the street where you can see a distance not at a corner.

This is the best race to view a first cycling event for a fun family day outside. Pray for a sunny day and safe travels to all.

So go 57 north about 6 miles, 585 north or east go 8 miles or so, 21 north go 2 miles, 76 east go 9 miles maybe, route 8 north go 4 miles, Howe Ave east for 2 miles or a little less, a left on 91 go 1.6 miles something like that, a right on S River road go .8 miles and be careful even though the cyclist should be obeying the laws because it is not the race course then turn right into the park and go .2 miles up and around the hill left at the barrier and right at the 2nd barrier.

Or just go to http://www.mapquest.com/ and type this http://www.mapquest.com/maps/Munroe+falls+metorpolitan+park:%5B1-95%5D+S+River+Rd+Munroe+Falls+OH+44262/#a/search/l::[1-95]+S+River+Rd:Munroe+Falls:OH:44262:US:41.1358:-81.438:street:Summit+County/m:hyb:14:41.136865:-81.438006:0:0:/so:Munroe+Falls+Metropolitain+Park:::d::25:::::/e

Look at the number one and then scroll the street and you should see the park, the aerial view is cool to look at.

Hope to see you at the Race.

Romans 3

Romans 3

God's Faithfulness

I am sure this is hard for some to understand. With God sending His one and only son (Jesus) to die for us, our sins are made clean through Him. Everyone has a choice God or satan, good or evil.

5But if our unrighteousness brings out God's righteousness more clearly, what shall we say? That God is unjust in bringing his wrath on us? (I am using a human argument.) 6Certainly not! If that were so, how could God judge the world?

No One is Righteous

9What shall we conclude then? Are we any better[b]? Not at all! We have already made the charge that Jews and Gentiles alike are all under sin. 10As it is written: "There is no one righteous, not even one; 11there is no one who understands, no one who seeks God. 12All have turned away, they have together become worthless; there is no one who does good, not even one."[c] 13"Their throats are open graves; their tongues practice deceit."[d] "The poison of vipers is on their lips."[e] 14"Their mouths are full of cursing and bitterness."[f] 15"Their feet are swift to shed blood; 16ruin and misery mark their ways, 17and the way of peace they do not know."[g] 18"There is no fear of God before their eyes."[h]
19Now we know that whatever the law says, it says to those who are under the law, so that every mouth may be silenced and the whole world held accountable to God. 20Therefore no one will be declared righteous in his sight by observing the law; rather, through the law we become conscious of sin.

I had to put all of this in here. I think everyone knows that no one is perfect. God sent Jesus as a living sacrifice for us. God loves us more than we can ever fathom.

Righteousness Through Faith

21But now a righteousness from God, apart from law, has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify. 22This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference, 23for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. 25God presented him as a sacrifice of atonement,[i] through faith in his blood. He did this to demonstrate his justice, because in his forbearance he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished— 26he did it to demonstrate his justice at the present time, so as to be just and the one who justifies those who have faith in Jesus.
27Where, then, is boasting? It is excluded. On what principle? On that of observing the law? No, but on that of faith. 28For we maintain that a man is justified by faith apart from observing the law. 29Is God the God of Jews only? Is he not the God of Gentiles too? Yes, of Gentiles too, 30since there is only one God, who will justify the circumcised by faith and the uncircumcised through that same faith. 31Do we, then, nullify the law by this faith? Not at all! Rather, we uphold the law.

I have to say one thing that I have seen over the years is people think you are better than them if you are a Christian. This makes it pretty clear reading Romans 3 for those that are asking that same question. God is here for everyone all you have to do is accept His Love for you.

I'm A Dancing Queen!

Caylin had the best time at a wedding we went to on Saturday. She was the life of the reception! This girl loves to dance. She wanted to dance with all the older boys. (Age 8-12) She didn't give the young boys her age the time of day! LOL There was the time during the dancing where all the dancers stand in a circle and clap for whoever is in the middle showing off their best dance moves, well Caylin goes in the middle. She just danced and danced. Too Funny!

Caylin also lined up for the bouquet toss. When she didn't get the flowers she threw her hands up in the air, like she was upset.

Jeremy and I are probably going to have our hands full when she starts dating. Older boys, I don't think so!

I will post either video or pics later.
