Heal my heart and make it clean.
Open up my eyes to the things unseen.
Show me how to love like you have loved me.
Break my heart for what breaks Yours.
Everything I am for Your kingdoms cause.

Granny The Great

This is the girls and I last month with Joel's grandma.... She had a stroke several years ago and has been in the nursing home ever since. She passed away yesterday and we will miss her greatly. She always had her makeup on, lipstick just right, and was the best at Christmas shopping. We are headed out to Washington to visit with family and attend her memorial. Thanks for all your prayers through this time!

My favorite Voice in Radio

I am sure I have said this way too many times.... but I love this guy. I never thought I would be into politics so much... but find myself more and more interested in it day by day. I find it interesting and maddening all at the same time. I really would like to see Mark sit down with Obama... I would pay money to see that interview! He has this new book coming out next month... I am hoping Joel will not be opposed to buying it for me for my birthday! hint, hint, Joel.

My trip to Washington was great. Seeing my sister's kids was amazing... three years made a big difference... they were all so grown up. I loved being able to see my parents and it was great to see my sister and Matt. We had a lot of catching up to do. The cousins played together so well and had a lot of fun. They are great kids and it was hard for us to say goodbye.... but we are very glad that we will be able to see them again before they head back to Africa. These pictures are of my girls with the three kids.

I am crazy... but just keep getting more interested in it.

alright.. just a few more things on my mind.

1. government does not create jobs..... they take tax money from tax payers to pay others.. That is redistribution of wealth.
2. This stimulus package if full of nothing BUT earmarks.
3. #2 makes Obama a flat out liar.
4. I am not a fan of liars.
5. The message has changed from hope to hate and from change to fear.
6. Obama has been in office three weeks and now after this package will be the highest spending president ever.
7. Recessions happen.
8. This is going to change our country forever.
9. I love how those in positions are not even paying their taxes.... and I don't buy that it was just an honest mistake.
10. Nothing about these men is honest.
11. History proves this will not work......
12. I hope Netanyahu wins the election for Israel.
13. That press conference was the most painful thing to listen to....
14... and I wonder how many Obama supporters even watched it.
15. I really believe he has no idea what he is doing.
16. I love how he is now speaking so highly of the great election that was able to take place in Iraq.
17. is change we can believe in just a repeat of the New Deal.
18. The more they have their hands on, the more they control us.
19. I need to find something else to be interested in.
20. I also think I should buy a gun, while it is still legal.

I hope to post some pics of my trip soon... here are some things on my mind.
* I loved seeing my niece and nephews.... they are so grown up.
* my sis and I had so much fun.
*my brother in law has not changed one bit.... and I love it!
* my flight home was awful.... had only 20 minutes to make my connecting flight and even after a tram, I had to walk at least a mile... with two children.... the plane was waiting on me. A few more minutes and I would have been out of luck.
* I was glad to see Joel again.
* I wish that people took wedding vows seriously.
* I will not watch The View again..... seriously can't stand those women.
* I think people should be able to hunt animals without having crazy hollywood people ranting about it.
*I would like a gun but would be terribly afraid of it being in my home.
* My new drink at Starbucks is a cappachino.
* I do not get how those cabinet members can just not pay their taxes.
* I think that our country as we know it is soon going to change.
* I recently started listening to Mark Driscoll and now question how I really feel about Rob Bell.
* I have a hunger for learning at this current moment in my life.
* I am thankful for great parents and for how much they love my kids.
* I hate how people think the government should get involved in every area of our life.... hasn't anyone noticed that they screw everything up? why would we trust them with more? it is not rocket science........ the government just makes the problems worse!!!!!!!
*I am hoping that we adjust quickly to this time change thing.
*I am ready for spring and a lower electric bill.
* I am dreading the DMV tomorrow. (government owned right?) no wonder it is such an awful place.

My blood is boiling....

I am still at my family's house and enjoying every minute with my family... this time has been priceless.... but, I have had more time than normal on my hands. Since I am not at my own house, I do not have to spend most of my day cleaning, picking up, cooking, bills, etc. It is really nice and reality will soon be slapping me in the face when I get back home and in the swing of life. I also have had more time to watch morning shows..... which I am glad that in my normal life I do not get a chance to watch. I turned on the View this morning and I guess it is just me punishing myself.... and I am sure I have blogged about this show before because I cannot help but get angry.... it is like a train wreck that somehow I keep watching because my ears cannot believe what I am hearing. Those ladies are so ignorant and Elisabeth doesn't ever have a good enough argument.. she could say sooo much more!!!! They are all mad at Rush Limbaugh for saying he wanted the president to fail.... they have no idea what he really meant. He totally believes that Obama's policies will destroy this country and therefore, wants the policies to fail in order to keep this country on the right track. This show really makes my blood boil....... they think Rush does not care about the poor because he does not want the stimulus package to pass.... are you kidding me? it is NOT the governments job to help the poor, it is the church...... charity..... people giving to others.... not the government forcing us to give to others. So then, if you do not agree with them, you do not care about the poor..... aaahhhhhhh!!!!!! I need to just stop.
I will post more pics from my trip soon.
