What do you burn for?

Hi everyone...

I have a new plays music on my blog and I love it. It's distorted my blog a bit but I'm going to work on it.

Until then...please take some time and just listen to the first song that loads. It's a compilation and it's well worth your time.

As always, thank you for stopping in and leave a comment if you have the time. We love you guys and miss you all! Please be praying for us...

Beginning of the compilation:
As Joan of Arc was dying at the stake she said this quote - "Every man gives his life for what he believes and every woman gives her life for what she believes. Sometimes people believe in little to nothing and yet they give their lives to that little or nothing. One life is all we have...we live it and it's gone...but to live without belief is more terrible than dying...even more terrible than dying young."

What do you burn for?

Jim Elliot said the famous words years before his martyrdom "He is no food who gives what he can not keep to gain what he cannot loose. He prayed as a young man... "I pray lite these idol sticks of my life and may I burn up for thee. Consume my life my God for it is yours...I seek not a long life but a full one..."

"People who do not know the Lord ask why in the world do we waste our lives as missionaries? They forget they too are expending their lives and when the bubble has burst they will have nothing of eternal signifigance to show for the years they have lived." Nate Saint, martyer

Love love love that last quote, and if you don't mind it fits perfectly with what I JUST posted about, so I'd like to copy it, if you please!
