Who do YOU say ....

How do you perceive God? Some don't believe He is there; I know better than that, having experienced a relationship with Him.

But what is He like? Is He angry? Is He loving? Is He gentle or stern? Does He feel things the way we do or is He above feeling?

And how do we relate to Him?

The Bible says to approach his throne of GRACE to find mercy and grace to help in time of need. Jesus testified that God so loved the world - the who lot of us - that He sacrificed His only Son to save us. But sometimes I struggle to believe that He loves me, even though I have experienced times of love and closeness with Him.

I'd be interested to read your answers.

No, you still can't call me

I learned through watching the news this morning that the national "Do Not Call Registry" - remember that thing that you put your number on so telemarketers will not call you at all hours of the day - is about to purge its rolls.

Actually the first people to register when this thing was founded will have their protection expire beginning next year.

So unless you want irritating "can I speak to so-and-so" calls during dinner again, go to http://www.donotcall.gov and register your number - again.

Apparently the justification for the numbers expiring is that they want to rid the registry of people who change their phone numbers or move. But I still have the same number - and no, you can't call me.

So get your fingers to www.donotcall.gov and register again. Maybe this time it will last longer than five years, but I don't think so. On the e-mail that you get when you confirm that your registration, the e-mail says "your registration will last until 2012."
