Battleground, WA

This last weekend, Kinz, Erik and I drove about 3 and some hours to Battleground, WA.  Erik was a groomsman in our friends wedding.  The location was beautiful... sitting on top of a mountain somewhere out in the middle of nowhere - we took the opportunity to take a few pics! :)
(Not Pictured: Our Miss Madison was at a concert with her friends) :)



 This will probably be the one and ONLY time I ever see Erik in HOT PINK! ha!  :) 

...Since Kinz had a Softball Tournament the next morning and we had to be at the fields at 7:00 a.m. we stayed for a little bit of the reception and then we were back on our 3+ hour drive home.

On the drive home, I took the opportunity to learn a little bit about the Old Apostolic Lutheran church (since the wedding ceremony was different than what we normally see)  ...'Gooogling' it on my phone to understand their beliefs.  What I learned was sad.  It really is AMAZING how some religions can take the HOLY BIBLE - the amazing, precious, POWERFUL WORD of GOD and change/disfigure/alter it to deceive people with their own interpretations.

"Go in through the narrow gate, because the gate to hell is wide and the road that leads to it is easy, and there are many who travel it. But the gate to life is narrow and the way that leads to it is hard,and there are few people who find it. " (Lk 13.24)

"I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect."  (Romans 12:1-2)
