Poor Mildred

So poor Mildred got hit by a stupid escort today.  She's already in the shop waiting for her surgery.  I'm fine.  Its amazing because it was cold outside, and all that adrenaline, I really didn't feel a thing.
Also big news on the home front, I'm running a marathon.  My friend Katie, inspired me, as she often does, and now I'm running a marathon.  We're running for clean water.  There will be more details, but that's the gist of it.  In January, I am donating one cent for every ounce of water I drink for the month.  Sure it doesn't sound like much, but usually I drink a gallon of water (128oz) so, that $39.68 for the month.  That's clean water for 40 people.  Amazing huh?  You could do the same thing (for how many ounces YOU drink or you can sponsor me).  I think our goal is $4000.  That amount can purchase a well for a village.

Scripture teaches that one’s final salvation depends on the state of the soul at death. As Jesus himself tells us, "He who endures to the end will be saved" (Matthew 24:13; cf. 25:31–46).

One who dies in the state of friendship with God (the state of grace) will go to heaven. The one who dies in a state of enmity and rebellion against God (the state of mortal sin) will go to hell.

For many Fundamentalists and Evangelicals it makes no difference—as far as salvation is concerned—how you live or end your life.

You can heed the altar call at church, announce that you’ve accepted Jesus as your personal Savoir, and, so long as you really believe it, you’re set.

From that point on there is nothing you can do, no sin you can commit, no matter how heinous, that will forfeit your salvation. You can’t undo your salvation, even if you wanted to.
