Rejecting GOD

August 27, 2010

Mr Dan Barker (Co-President of The Freedom From Religion Foundation and outspoken atheist activist) may not think that he has a problem with God, but he clearly has a problem with getting his facts straight. First, America is not a secular nation. The Judeo-Christian heritage of this nation and its founding fathers is well documented. Revisionists like […]

Do What You Do

August 24, 2010

Did you ever have endure a job? You had to do it because you needed the money but hated every minute of it. We’ve all been there. For me it was a meat packing plant. The shift started in the trim room cuttting the fat off sides of beef. From there it was on to […]

Pets, People, Problems

August 22, 2010

So my dog has this new way he likes to wake me up at 3:30AM to let me he needs to go out … he licks my nose. Then when he gets out he wants to roam, sniff, and then sit. He doesn’t really have to do anything… grrrrrrr! The same animal that nearly devoured […]

Pardon My Blessing

August 18, 2010

The trip down was spent hearing […]

No More Clip On’s

August 9, 2010

When your child or children attend a Christian school, one of the differences (aside from philosophy) is the dress code. Garnments can’t be tight but not too baggy either. Skirts need to be long but boy’s hair needs to be short. “Wear this uniform” while understanding you are a unique individual created by God with […]

BACK TO SCHOOL

August 8, 2010

It’s still hard for me to get used to school starting in August. For my entire kid life up in the North … school started on the Wednesday after Labor Day. Warm days, cool nights, falling leaves, new shows on TV, and a brand new pair of Buster Brown’s for class and Pro Keds canvas sneakers […]

Witchcraft In The Church

August 4, 2010

When you mention the subject witches you automatically conjure up a mental image of old ugly women with long noses, warts, and black pointed hats standing around a boiling cauldron. Or we think of a Wiccan group of pagans who infilitrate a church in protest. If it were that simple to spot witchcraft at work […]
