On Monday, I just finished writing the Verse of the Day (1 Peter 1:24-25) on our family white board and minutes later my faithful friend, Baby, would suddenly die. Life is quick and very precious. Emilio, Emmanuel and I are celebrating her life. And Manny put on her "fishing" jacket and will be helping me fish for men in her stead.
We pilgrims walk the tightrope between earth and heaven, feeling trapped in time, yet with eternity beating in our hearts. Our unsatisfied sense of exile is not to be solved or fixed while here on earth. Our pain and longings make sure we will never be content, but that’s good: it is to our benefit that we do not grow comfortable in a world destined for decay. - Joni Eareckson Tada

It's been two weeks since Baby had congestive heart failure and with the help of a terrific Christian vet, a ton of herbs and heart medicine from my mother - in - law and a terrific ped med company, coupled with the prayers of all the dog lovers and of course the grace of God...Baby is doing better today. She grabbed her toy to show you and did her half smile pose. :-)

Did you know Ray Comfort has a daily "Live" 28 min TV program?
It's called, "On The Box", check it out...and Trish is in the fox hole on this episode and you get a sneak peek at one of her new handbags - by the look on Ray and Tony's face, they aren't too impressed. :-)
The 14th most frequently asked question at Fish with Trish is...drum roll, please...
Q14. I want to share the gospel and still be a biblical woman. How do I do both?
Each Thursday my friend Kristen and I go to a local University and witness to students. A couple weeks ago as we walked into the campus cafeteria a young student was walking out. I couldn't help but notice how horribly low her shirt was. I quickly handed her a tract and said, "Did you get one?" She took it. Then, in a low horrified voice, I covered my mouth and said to her, "Uh Oh!" as I pointed several times at her chest area. She frantically looked down, as if she had no idea, and started buttoning everything up. Then she responded, "Thanks." I wonder how long she walked around the campus with her shirt like that -without anyone saying a word.

Hi Trish, when the Bible says "modest apparel," do you think that it means that women shouldn't wear jeans or any pants in general? I don't wear those "skinny" jeans that are popular today, but just your average Levi's. Would you (or should I say would God) think that they are acceptable for a woman to wear? Most of the women in my conservative church wear skirts most of the time, even when they aren't in church. - Bridget
"I met a man at the gas station the other day. He gave me a trillion dollar bill. Made me think about my life. Thanks, George"
I wrote back, saying:
"Dear George, Thank you for writing. I'm glad that someone cared enough to hand you a gospel tract. I hope you read the back and that you have made peace with God by repenting and trusting in Jesus Christ as your Savior."
He wrote back today, click HERE to read what he said!
"The enjoyment of [God] is our highest happiness, and is the only happiness with which our souls can be satisfied. To go to heaven, fully to enjoy God, is infinitely better than the most pleasant accommodations here. Fathers and mothers, husbands, wives, or children, or the company of earthly friends, are but shadows; but God is the substance. These are but scattered beams, but God is the sun. These are but streams. But God is the ocean."
I'm not a fan of going to the doctor but I'll go if I think it's something that could be serious. I woke up Saturday with a sore right ear. It progressed and was worse the next day. I went online to self diagnose and each time it said something to the effect of "see your doctor immediately!" On Sunday night, I had pretty intense pain and couldn't sleep well. I wasn't sure if I got bit by a spider while sleeping or what was happening - it's better to be safe than sorry, so when Monday morning rolled around I went to the doctor.
There is nothing more important than where you will spend eternity!
If you have never thought about where you will go when you die...now is the time to do so. Perhaps you received one of these tombstone cards with the question, "What is the most important part on this headstone?"
What do you think?
Take a good look at it.
Is the most important part your name? The date? That you were dearly loved? That you were someone's son or daughter?
The answer is surprising...
It's none of the above!
Did you miss it?
Most people do.
The most important part on the headstone is the dash in between the two dates. It represents all the days of your life here on earth. The bible tells us that life is like a vapor. Think about it. Your life appears for a little while and then it's gone.

Below is my favorite picture of Baby and my husband. Well, actually I have a ton of favorite pictures of her. :-) We found out on Nov 30th that she has cancer. Lumps seemed to appear overnight on her lymph nodes. We took her to the Vet and they said if we don't do anything for her that she has 2-4 weeks to live. She has Lymphosarcoma (cancer of the lymph nodes). I could hardly believe my ears. She's so young. She wasn't even showing any signs. We thought we'd have her for many more years but death can creap upon us so quickly, life is short, isn't it! But God has ministerd to me through His Word!
"In His hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind." Job 12:10
"What doubles the amazing way of serving Him (God) and sharing the gospel in such an easy way, is that now my five-year-old daughter is asking me, "Mama, why do you keep handing those things to everybody," and I get to explain Jesus and the work that He commanded those who love Him to follow. She is seeing me in a way that she's never seen, and I'm praying that it will be the example that she esteems to follow one day." Sunni B.
My soul, wait in silence for God only, For my hope is from Him. He only is my rock and my salvation, My stronghold; I shall not be shaken. On God my salvation and my glory rest; The rock of my strength, my refuge is in God. Trust in Him at all times, O people; Pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us. Psalm 62:5-8
Something to meditate on for the rest of our earthly lives
"Labour to obtain such a disposition of mind that you may choose heaven for your inheritance and home; and may earnestly long for it, and be willing to change this world, and all its enjoyments, for heaven. Labor to have your heart taken up so much about heaven, and heavenly enjoyments, as that you may rejoice when God calls you to leave your best earthly friends and comforts for heaven, there to enjoy God and Christ." The Christian Pilgrim, Jonathan Edwards, Sept 1733
Proof that we live in a fallen world
"And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart
Stuart was on Wretched Radio back in Feb. of this year. Stuart is an atheist. If you remember, he had a few problems (see vid below). Well, he hasn't disappeared. I ran into him last week at the University of North Texas. Then friends of mine ran into him the next day! This guy can't seem to get away from Christians, can he! :-)
"I have found, my brethren, by long experience that nothing touches the heart like the cross of Christ. When the heart is touched and wounded by the two-edged sword of the Law, nothing heals its wounds like the balm that flows from the pierced heart of Jesus." -The Heart of The Gospel, July 1886 by Charles. H. Spurgeon

I used to have the most difficult time memorizing the 10 Commandments. But when I found this tool (below) years ago through Living Waters it helped me trememdously. In fact, I memorized all 10 in order within minutes. Have you memorized them? If not, this is a quick way to lock each one in your mind. Try it. It's simple. Here's what to do...Just visualize each picture with the commandment. Go through them a couple times and then quiz yourself to see how you do.
