For the space provided, I would like to tell you something about Michael Saturday in somewhat of a chronological order. I was born and raised in Morgantown, WV. I enjoyed a great childhood. In 1974 I moved to western Maryland, Garrett County to be more specific, McHenry to be exact. I went there to play college basketball and to get an education. Unfortunately, that was the order of my priorities at the time. Fortunately, however, that did eventually change and I did realize the importance of an education. I had an excellent college basketball experience but certainly wasn't good enough to take it to the next level.
In 1976, I married the love of my life; Fayann. This year will mark our 38th year of marriage. I has been a great run. I am looking forward to the next 38 years and beyond!
In 1979 I started my teaching career as an elementary physical education teacher in Belington, WV. That same year, just one month prior to my start as a teacher, the greatest thing happened to me... I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior!. This relationship with Him has been quite an exciting adventure.
In 1981, Fayann and I were blessed with the birth of our first child; a little girl we named Jessica. In 1983 we received another blessing in the birth of our second child; a little boy we named Michael. They have been and are the apple of our eyes! Both are grown and married to two wonderful individuals that we consider as our own. Jessica is married to Seth and Michael is married to Shaina. Just when you think things couldn't be any better, Jessica gave birth to her first child; a little boy they named Clinton Wayne. We now have another apple for our eyes!
I have been an educator all of my adult life. I have taught elementary and middle school. I have been a school principal since 1994 at the elementary, middle and high school levels. All three have been great with different experiences at each level.
I am the pastor of Asher Glade Church of the Brethren in Friendsville, MD. I hope you will stop by and see us when you can.
Thanks for taking the time to visit my site. My name is Michael Saturday and I am a born again Christian. You may be wondering, "what is 'born again'"? Good question! Many people believe in God, and that is good, but even the demons believe in God and they tremble! Born again literally means to be "born from above."
A born again Christian is a person who has accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. It is a person who God has extended His grace to and who, through faith, has accepted it. It is a spiritual transformation resulting in a heart transformation. To be transformed is to be changed.
I can assure you that I am not the same person I was before. Everyone who has accepted Jesus as their Savior has been changed (transformed). Who they were before is not who they are now. A person who is born again will display signs of their transformation. These signs include things such as love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.
None of us are perfect. God has set a high standard in order for us to spend eternity with Him once we die. His standard is so high that it is impossible for anyone to reach. That may sound discouraging at first but read on. Every single one of us comes up short on the God standard. Every one of us has broken God's rules called the "10 Commandments." If you've ever looked at another person and lusted after them, if you've ever became angry with someone to the point of wishing they were dead or if you've ever took something that wasn't yours, then you've fallen short of God's standard. Have you ever wished you had something that someone else owns? You've fallen short!
So, what's the answer? Being BORN AGAIN! God sent His only Son to this earth so that we can be born again. May I encourage you to spent time on my site, let's have some dialog, and let's see what happens!
I am looking forward to the adventure!
