Count Down (Up) to Independence Day #4

"We have staked the whole future of American civilization, not upon the power of government, far from it. We have staked the future of all of our political institutions upon the capacity of each and all of us to govern ourselves, to control ourselves, to sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God."

President James Madison

II Samuel 22: 31-33

"As for God, His way is perfect; the word of the Lord is tried. He is a Shield to all those who trust and take refuge in Him. For who is God but the Lord? And who is a Rock except our God? God is my storng Fortress; He guides the blameless in His way and sets him free."

II Samuel 22:31-33 Amplified Version

Count Down to Independence Day #3

"Freedom is not a gift bestowed upon us by other men, but a right that belongs to us by the laws of God....I never doubted the existence of the Deity, that He made the world and governed it by His Providence....The pleasures of this world are rather from God's goodness than our own merit....Whoever shall introduce into the public affairs the principles of primitive Christianity will change the face of the world."

Benjamin Franklin

Count Down to Independence Day #2

"Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved homes and the war's desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heaven-rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation!
Then conquer we must, for our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust!"
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall waive
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!"

Frances Scott Key
Rarely Seen Last Verse of "The Star Spangled Banner"

What the ...

A news story title from the last few days that made me say "What the..."

"Girl, 12, Charged with Distributing Pic of Classmate" FoxNews

So tween and teen girls are taking nude pics of themselves and each other and sending them to friends.
If my son was to receive something like this, I would insist on criminal charges and would probably file a civil suit.

So what would you do if your son or daughter sent or received porn pics?

I challege each of you to fast one or two meals per week. Of course you should consult your doctor if you have health concerns. Work through lunch 2 times this week. Make extra sales calls, do that 'thing' that you have been putting off or just go for a walk. Make sure you drink your water you need to stay hydrated!

School's Out

Wow, I can't believe it's June and school is out for the summer!
All the kids that I've barely seen since last August have reappeared in my pool. I don't really mind because it means that I know where they all are and what they are doing.
What do you do with your kids in the summer? Or if you are a kid what do you do with your parents in the summer?

Be safe!
