Great Post

My buddy Jessie put up an awesome post. If that link doesn't work, follow the link to her blog under my bloggy friends thing...she's leannotuntothineownunderstanding or something like that. Anyway, her post addresses something we all need to consider as this election gets under way next week. One candidate is pro-life, one is decidedly not (or as someone close to me puts it, "pro-death" not pro-choice as the opposite of "life" is "death" not "choice"). I choose to vote for the value of human life above all else. If we let this issue slip, then as Christians we are not doing our duty. To slide down that slippery slope of beleiving that us little humans get to "decide" when life begins is BAD. Did you know, that just because you personally "decide" something, it doesn't automatically become true?? someone needs to tell those "pro-death" people that.
Love you guys, go read Jessie's post. : ) As someone I know puts it, "it's a post of note."

GO Flames!!!

Well, we snuck off to the Liberty University Homecoming football game on Saturday. What a blast. The boys loved it. There are flame throwers at the end of the field that they set off everytime they score and it was so cool. THey won like 40-something to nothing, so the boys got their fill of flames!!! LOL! They saw Sparkey the eagle who is the mascot and Carter ran up and "gave him a big 'ol hug" in Carter's words. Ha. Cute. Why no camera???? AAAARRRGHHH! They got big foam fingers and everything. Cute. Roger had to take his into church today. Ha! He entertained everyone at the game after he got bored. He played air-guitar for the ladies behind us who thought he was the cutest thing ever...he ate it up.

Ever feel dumb? No? Go to grad school. I just wrote a post for a discussion board and went and read the one other post because I had to respond to someone. Man. His work made mine look like 3rd grade. Ugh. Oh well. We can't all be that smart all the time....Apologetics is HARD, man!!! I'm missing the logic gene or something. Ugh. I don't even know why I took this class...I didn't NEED it!!! Rob tricked me! : )

I just ate half of a bag of Sam's choice peanut butter cups. ick. Somebody stop me!!! I wish I could say that the generic ones had less calories, but.....

Saw gas for 2.29 a gallon today. Thought it was sad that I thought that was cheap. So I ate a half a bag of peanut butter cups....that was the first half.

I made 3 more aprons today for the craft show a friend and I are going to go do. These things better sell, or everyone I know is getting an apron and a cup towel for Christmas. No joke!!

If I drink a gallon of water will that wash all that chocolate and peanut butter out of my system?

Will a diet soda or 3 counteract all those calories??

If left to its own devices..will dirty laundry do itself....or just walk away?

how 'bout dishes? is it okay to let a dog lick them clean or should you actually still send 'em through the washer? Ha!

I don't have much time. ....I need some day extensions. Wish they were are easy to get as hair extensions.

THink I could talk God into doing for me what he's done for others? You know, that sun-stands-still thingy? It'd be nice, but He probably will just know I'll use all that time to eat peanut butter cups and won't do it. : )

I need to go to bed now...Ya'll take care, keep praying, and love each other!!!

Please Pray...

Just suffice it to say, that we need your prayers. I know I must say that a lot, but sometimes when you're seeking God's will, it's hard to tell what is from yourself and what is from God. We have decisions to make, stuff we just don't know what to think about...I've been banned from talking on here about my husband, by my I just can't really say....if you know me and wanna call I can fill you in with details, but on here, I just can' please, Just pray that God's will is obvious to be covered with prayer from you buncha prayer warriors would really help. we've seen the results of prayer, we know God is working in our lives, we know change is immiment and it doesn't seem to be what or how we thought it was gonna, this is sounding mysterious, I didn't mean it to....just...I'm so confused and scared and confused!!! I just don't know what to do besides pray. So, thanks in advance .

Read, follow, or ...not!

Okay, I'm with Luke. I know there must be people who read my blog, but don't "follow" it. I know I mostly talk about my kids, myself, and other stuff you may not find interesting, but could you just humor me and click that little button down and to the left and "pretend" to follow my blog? Maybe I'm wrong...maybe only Luke reads this...Ha! If so, Hey Luke! How are you this morning? I'm still waiting on an update on your kids-to-be! : )
Ya'll have a good day...I'm short one kid, so I'm only teaching 2 grades today! it's almost like a day off! LOL! Yay for grandparents!!! WOoHOO!!!
Love ya'll!

God's working overtime...

Sometimes I really feel like God is working over time on me. As you may, or may not, know I'm in seminary through Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary. Really cool. So's my husband. Well, this is my first semester and I'm taking Introduction to World Missions. So, my big paper this class is a 15-20 page paper on an unreached people group. I need prayer. I've chosen a people group in Turkmenistan. We have to come up with a plan of how to reach them. As some of you may know, I've never been exposed much to missions, missionary work, etc. until the past 3-5 years. Really cool. I'm totally taken with it. I have read several great books, I pray for missionaries regularly, whatever...BUT. I'm still very naive and un-knowledgeable (is that a word...I should've just said 'ignorant') about this stuff. Even after reading two texts for this class. Now, I feel like having some book knowledge, I'm just gonna sound stupid in this graduate level paper. SO. I need your of mine was answered in that the teacher has already given the entire class a two day extension until Sunday. ..and I found out more than a day before the paper was due! LOL! BUT> I need, I covet your prayerful support in this. I know God is working on me with this, because of all things...a missionary and his family was at our church this past Sunday. No, not from Turkmenistan, that would've been way out of this world bizarre...but this wife uses the same curriculum I do with her four kids that she homeschools in Cambodia. Really neat. I got to talk to them for just a minute or two after the service, but I know God put them there. Just for me. : ) I think I start getting these strange ideas about what a missionary must "look like" or "be like" or "they're not like me" "they're different". But you know what? That family was so much like mine it was a bit scary. I am trying to be so open to God's leading, but it's hard! God could tell's literally taken Him years to just get me to be open to moving around the USA according to His call. SO. I covet your prayers, for me, for my family, for my paper!
