Ten Things...

   ...About myself.
1. I love, love, love to sing! I can't even stop myself from humming at the grocery store.
2. I can't keep myself from smiling and giggling when I'm happy. So if I'm ever grinning and giggling at you, its probably because I'm happy, and not because you shirt is buttoned wrong. But then again, maybe your shirt is buttoned wrong... better check ;)
3. I'm very easy to entertain. Books and movies I find interesting others consider, and I quote, "Boring". 
4. I'm forever laughing at things that other people don't even think are funny.
5. I'm a little bit of a daredevil. I like heights, and climbing vertical hills.
6. I'm petrified of snakes, spiders and bears.
7. I like to see peoples faces when I talk to them. 
8. I like riding in airplanes.
9. I love babies! oh, I just love them!
10. I hate it when I don't know something that someone else does, but I like smart people:).

Is This our Fate?

   English romantic poet, Percy Bysshe Shelley, wrote the following:“I met a traveler from an antique land
Who said: “Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown
And wrinkled lip and sneer of cold command
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed.
And on the pedestal these words appeared:
‘My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings:
Look at my works, ye mighty, and despair!’
Nothing beside remain. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare,
The lone and level sands stretch far away.”
  Every town, every city, and every country must reach, at some time, their end. Some faster then others.
   Some times a city can get so big and powerful, they begin to think themselves indestructible. The leaders in the city begin to think, “We are so powerful, no one can possibly over take us.” And the people reply, “Yes, look at these huge walls that we have built. The buildings we have made. This huge army of men we have to protect us.” And they get proud. “We have created this.” They think. Then the next thing they know, some how or other, their huge walls are torn down. The place begins to decay. And nothing is left but a few relics sticking up from the sand. People traveling by stop to look. They laugh and point. “This is the city,” they say, “that thought it could not be torn down.”
   Why? Why is this so? When people look around and take credit for what they’ve done, they are not giving God credit. If they think they have created all this by themselves, then they are saying that they don’t need God. They turn their backs on God. And soon they are on the fast track toward destruction.
   No one, no town, no city, NO COUNTRY, can survive without God. I think of the Aztec, The Mayans, and the Incas. These were huge nations. But they turned their back on God. And where are they now? Gone, dead, wiped out. Some were taken over by people of the outside. Some were self destructive. Killing themselves from the inside out.
   We in the United states of America have a problem that we have to face. Do we not think ourselves the greatest nation?  I praise the Lord daily for the Godly founding fathers who laid down the plans for this country. But we have pushed the self-destruct button.  We are killing ourselves. Thousands of babies are murdered daily. We are exchanging our rights for ’comfort’, ’safety’, and ’insurance’. The men in this country have let their man-hood slip through their fingers. They no longer know how to stand up for themselves, let alone their family.
   Oh, that we would kneel before God and beg forgiveness. Turn away from our evil ways. Love the Lord and hate evil. Oh, that our leaders would see their wrongs, and turn to the right. This is my prayer.

"My" Baby!

I absolutely love my littlest sis', Emmeline! I've taken to calling her, "My baby". She's such a sweet heart. Hates taking naps, and loves being held. If she's not tired (like I said, she doesn't like naps) she will play on the floor for a long time with her baby toys. She 'talks' a lot, hums along when you sing, and is trying to learn how to crawl. She can say Mama, Dada, and Yay! Ohhhh, I just love her!
