"Once our eyes are opened, we cannot pretend we don't know what to do. God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows that we know, and holds us responsible to act." Proverbs 24:12

A little different version

Twas the night before elections
And all through the town,
Tempers were flaring
Emotions all up and down!

I, in my bathrobe
With a cat in my lap,
Had cut off the TV
Tired of the political crap.

When all of a sudden
There arose such a noise,
I peered out of my window
Saw Obama and his boys

They had come for my wallet
They wanted my pay.
To give to the others
Who had not worked a day!

He snatched up my money
And quick as a wink
Jumped back on his bandwagon
And was gone in a blink.

He then rallied his henchmen
Who were pulling his cart
I could tell they were out
To tear my country apart!

' On Fannie, on Freddie,
On Biden and Ayers!
On Acorn, On Pelosi'
He screamed at the pairs!

They took off for his cause
And as he flew out of sight,
I heard him laugh at the nation
Who wouldn't stand up and fight!

So I leave you to think
On this one final note-

- Author Unknown

Note to Heidi:

In regards to your comment stating "Neither party has reversed Roe vs. Wade, so I'll stick with the party that at least does things that give women more options..."

Sadly, I must inform you that you have based your decision to vote for Obama on incorrect information. According to the CDC and the Alan Guttmacher Institute (the statistical arm for Planned Parenthood) abortions have continuosly decreased since 1990.

Therefore, your initial remark of "the number of abortions went down under the Clinton presidency but went back up under GW Bush" is completely incorrect. Please feel free to look at the figures yourself: You can click

God bless you.

Don't shudder....

You know, I promised myself that after my past 2 days of ranting and pretty much preaching to the choir, I would let it go. But, I can't. I'm sorry. I know many of you are on here hoping to hear something upbeat and maybe see pictures of my beautiful children, but I just can't let these last few days go by without saying I gave it my all. I did my part. I want my kids to someday see these pages and say, "Wow, Mom! You really tried." That in itself makes it all worthwhile for me.

My dear friend, Kelly, mentioned in a comment that the first or second time she came to my blog and I was talking about Obama and abortions, I sounded a little "fanatical". I laughed. In a good way, Kelly. :) Because my sweet husband tells me that whenever I take something on, I give it 200%, and I have to agree. I don't know if I'd call it fanatical. I guess I prefer to call it what Scott does, "passionate about my beliefs". Again, I've never, even as a child growing up with peer pressure that all kids go through, had the need to follow the crowd. I guess seeing my parents, immigrants who struggled to escape communism and succeeded, drives me to fight the same way for my own kids. I try to pray about everything. To keep an open mind, and of course, what comes natural to me, to research and discern about what is truth and what is deceit. Once that truth has been affirmed, then there's no stopping me.

So, for my loyal readers who email or comment and who are tired of hearing this because I do know that I'm preaching to the choir, I apologize for the redundancy. But if one, just one person, can change their mind and choose to vote for life because of my ramblings then every second spent agonizing about the results of these elections was worth it. (And I won't even be able to watch the final results because I will be in the hospital with Anna Grace - a post that is coming up very soon!)

I did respond to a friend today and shared that my only hope is knowing that our mighty Savior is in control. I know that. Obama may win. If he does, it's because God allowed it. He knows what's best for us and I need to trust Him with all my heart. Maybe Obama winning will be what this country needs for His people to turn their lives around and turn away from the immorality and lack of values that have filled every corner of this blessed country. I will someday be face to face with my Redeemer and I pray that as I bow before Him in reverence, He will approve of my efforts, as miniscule or futile as they may have been.

Of course, I did listen to the propaganda speech tonight, as I am sure a huge majority of the country, perhaps the world, did. I took mental notes as the socialist statements made by Obama filled my thoughts. If I keep going back to the socialist/communist talk, it's because I wish words could convey the sadness in my heart knowing that this is a real possibility for my children to grow up in. I don't want to ever live as I did the days and weeks following 9/11, when I feared going into crowded places. I don't want myself or my family to ever have to look at someone and judge or wonder about them because of fear that they may be a suicide bomber. I, as my children's mother, am suppose to protect them and at times I feel like there is nothing I could do, except pray to our Lord to keep them in the palm of His hands and always watch over them.

I want to stop here to interject that I am so very blessed to have the husband that I do. Scott in an incredibly wise man. He knows his stuff. He knows his wife. Her fears. Her worries. And her heart. He also knows communism through my family's eyes. For almost 11 years he's heard about the oppression that they live in. He's heard about how it began and how hard my dear father fought to prevent it. But the people were blinded by the young man with eloquent words promising the change that Cuba desperately needed. He offered jobs. He offered schooling. He offered health care. He promised that everyone would prosper after having been beaten down by an economy under Fulgencio Batista.

These were Castro's words in part of a speech he gave on May 20, 1960 at Pinar Del Rio, Cuba (my Father's birth province). For this and all speeches after 1959, click HERE.

"And there will be no more exploitation, no longer will they take one-third from those who produce the fruits of the land with their labor. No longer will they snatch away the products of their harvests, steal them,as they robbed in every way. This will never be again, never again will it be as it was, and never again will anyone abuse the people, or rob the people again, or divide the people in factions again, or destroy the strength of the people, or confuse the minds of the people, or keep the people in ignorance so that people will continue to be a useful tool of the privileged. Their children will not grow up ignorant, or without schools. These valleys, these beautiful valleys in this province, which were the "Cinderella," will never again be the "Cinderella" of Cuba. These valleys will not only be beautiful valleys, not only beautiful because of the landscape, but they will also be beautiful because of the happiness which will prevail there, and these lovely mountains will be more beautiful still because the people there are happier. And this will be one of the richest provinces of Cuba."

Shortly after this speech. My grandfather's farm and land were taken away from him.

Do those words sound familiar? Offering riches and education? The point I'm trying to make is that Cuba was in a pretty bad economic state when this young man came along to save the people. To save the country. They were desperate and they followed him. When people are hurting so badly, when you are wondering what would happen when you are living paycheck to paycheck if you lost your job, when you are paying an exorbitant amount of money in health care (as Scott and I are doing...in the thousands monthly!), when as a parent you want to offer your child the best of everything, but aren't even sure if you could afford your mortgage payment, what then? Most people, as it is happening in the U.S. right now, reach out to something new, something fresh. But not all that glitters is gold. And when there are so many red flags, you really need to step back, pray and think before you leap. God is always on your side. He is there waiting for you to rely on Him.

I have completely digressed and want to get back to tonight's airing, but I just wanted to show some of the similarities.

When Obama states that we all need to be held responsible for energy conservation and that we would all have to do our part (sorry...paraphrasing since I am too tired to rewind the TIVO. If you want exact quotes, email me and I will be glad to get them to you), my thoughts went immediately to how the Cubans are doing their part. Remember my post on my visit to Cuba? It was in the late 90's. They were struggling with lack of oil and energy conservation. The government's response? Ten hours DAILY Cubans lived without water or electricity. The days would vary along with the provinces. Tourist hotels and places of tourism would always have electricity and running water. This is not fictional. I lived this. I bathed outside in the rain because 2 days had gone by in Pinar Del Rio (same place where that speech above was given), where I was staying and there was no running water. I went there the end of August/beginning of September. The heat wasn't unbearable but it was hot. No fans. Lights would come on around 8 p.m. at night. So, most of the time, unless you had a wood or gas stove, no cooking. This was going on for years so the people had become complacent. They were tired of fighting. How much will President Obama ask of us in order to conserve energy?

I also cringed inside when I heard him say (not paraphrasing this time) "I will make a deal with every American who has the drive and the will but not the money to go to college: if you commit to serving your community or your country, we will make sure you can afford your tuition. You invest in America, America will invest in you, and together, we will move this country forward." Please remember those words, "if you commit to serving your community or your country". I honestly don't believe that our kids will be working in tobacco fields in order to serve their community, but I am somewhat apprehensive about what he means by "serving". Mandatory recruitment into the military? Possibly. Time will tell.

Are these "Just Words"?

From Obama's book Audacity of Hope: p. 261 Referring to the Muslims he said,

…In the wake of 9/11, ‘…in my meetings with Arab and Pakistani Americans (Muslims), and that I will stand with them should the political winds shift in an ugly direction” (referring to how the Japanese were interred in WW II).

From Obama's book Dreams of My Father:

‘I ceased to advertise my mother’s race at the age of 12 or 13, when I began to suspect that by doing so I was ingratiating myself to whites.’ (His mother was caucasian).

From Obama's book Dreams of My Father:

‘I found a solace in nursing a pervasive sense of grievance and animosity against my mother’s race.’

Lastly, I want to add something that DOES make me shudder. You know Joe, right? Yep. Joe the plumber. The guy who simply asked a question about his taxes and has been ripped apart by the media. Well, for those of you that keep telling yourselves that my words are nonsense because socialism cannot happen in the U.S., I have a little story for you to read. Click HERE. Not only did the Obama team have those in cohoots with them do a background check on this poor guy, but today's news is (again from the liberal media SUPPORTING Obama) that they dug even deeper than first assumed into his private life to see if he owed any unemployment compensation taxes or received any welfare assistance. WHAT???!!!! Where are this man's privacy rights? Where are his civil liberties? He has none. Why? Because Obama owns (obviously not literally) the media. Helen Jones-Kelley, director of the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services who did the check for Mr. Obama's gang wrote in her disclosure that the checks were "well-meaning..." Umm...sure they were. The article further reads, "The Obama campaign has said it has no ties to the checks and supports investigations." Again...ummm...sure! As if the Dept. of Job and Family Services agency just woke up one morning and said, "Hey, let's check out Joe the plumber!" Sure they did! And why? All of this, because one very normal, middle-class citizen decided he would exercise his rights to free speech and question a public official. The only difference between now and what would have happened in Cuba, is that shortly afterwards, the police would've shown up at his house and had him arrested. Yep....all in good time, my friends.

Please stop a take moment to reflect on how much more power this man will have when he stands before the citizens of this great country as President of the United States of America. To me, that is VERY scary. Don't be naive. The bigger the government, the less freedoms the people have. This is a historical fact.

I continue to ask God to have mercy on our country and it's people. We await His return and pray that in the meantime, we can remain focused on Him and continue to turn every blessing into praise.

"See, I have set before you today life and prosperity, and death and adversity;
in that I command you today to love the LORD your God, to walk in His ways and to keep His commandments and His statutes and His judgments, that you may live and multiply, and that the LORD your God may bless you in the land where you are entering to possess it.

"But if your heart turns away and you will not obey, but are drawn away and worship other gods and serve them, I declare to you today that you shall surely perish. You will not prolong your days in the land where you are crossing the Jordan to enter and possess it.

"I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. So choose life in order that you may live, you and your descendants, by loving the LORD your God, by obeying His voice, and by holding fast to Him; for this is your life and the length of your days, that you may live in the land which the LORD swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give them."
- Deuteronomy 30:15-20

I am not able to participate in the following event since it is not in my city, but I have agreed to pass it on.



Still undecided (Part II)

Please read Part I below before reading this section:

Having one association with Marxists, terrorists or communists MAY be accidental. These many? Definitely intentional. Keep in mind that every article that speaks about an endorsement for Obama comes from a world leader that HATES the United States.

Folks, it's all falling into place and God is hearing the cries of His people. Please do not let your prayers cease. The truth is coming out! The following information is NOT my opinion. These are all mostly from the liberal media who is SUPPORTING Obama. Can you imagine if they were against him?

The Washington Post states: OBAMA CAMPAIGN ACCEPTS DONATIONS FROM UNTRACEABLE SOURCES. CLICK HERE FOR THE STORY. Could these include his "associates" from the post below? How can our country allow this bias to occur, you ask? REMEMBER, SATAN IS THE MASTER OF DECEIT!

FIDEL CASTRO ENDORSES OBAMA! Calls him "the most progressive candidate to the U.S. presidency”. Hmmm....are you wondering why? Don't forget about those "associates". Click HERE for the story!

Also, please notice at the bottom of the article that it states (NY TIMES, of course, who has already endorsed Obama!) "The headline was altered to avoid the misinterpretation that Mr. Castro’s remarks represented a formal endorsement." In my book, for all intents and purposes, he HAS endorsed Obama.

One of the biggest issues that continues to boggle my mind is how Obama has won over the Jewish vote, with his obvious and flagrant disregard for Israel, one of the US's greatest allies and as a Christian, the holiest land on earth. The place of my Savior's birth. It blows me away, especially with Obama having Palestinian "friends" and already admitting to wanting to sit down with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the Iranian leader who wants to "wipe Israel off the planet". Well now, Palestinians are on the move to get those American voters to vote for their "friend". CLICK HERE!

HAMAS LEADER, AHMEND YOUSEF, ENDORSES OBAMA: During an interview on WABC radio, top Hamas political adviser Ahmed Yousef said the terrorist group supports Obama’s foreign policy vision.

“We don’t mind–actually we like Mr. Obama. We hope he will (win) the election and I do believe he is like John Kennedy, great man with great principle, and he has a vision to change America to make it in a position to lead the world community but not with domination and arrogance,” Yousef said in response to a question about the group’s willingness to meet with either of the Democratic presidential candidates.

LA TIMES SUPPRESSES VIDEO OF OBAMA ATTENDING A FAREWELL DINNER FOR HIS FRIEND, Rashid Khalidi. Remember Mr. Khalidi from my previous post? (By the way, LA TIMES had no issues releasing a tape of Republican Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger in 2006).

An excerpt from the article:

A special tribute came from Khalidi's friend and frequent dinner companion, the young state Sen. Barack Obama. Speaking to the crowd, Obama reminisced about meals prepared by Khalidi's wife, Mona, and conversations that had challenged his thinking.

His many talks with the Khalidis, Obama said, had been "consistent reminders to me of my own blind spots and my own biases. . . . It's for that reason that I'm hoping that, for many years to come, we continue that conversation -- a conversation that is necessary not just around Mona and Rashid's dinner table," but around "this entire world."

Next, I'm waiting to read about Satan's endorsement, but it would probably be redundant at this point.

Here's more:

Barack Hussein Obama removes the American flag from his private plane and replaces it with the Obama "O" emblem, representing himself, instead of his country. Click HERE to view validity and pictures of this claim. Is this a patriot to you that puts country first?

Does Obama feel he is above having to salute the American flag during the National Anthem? Judge for yourself by clicking HERE. The flag code for the United States is the following:

Salutation of the American Flag:

When the national anthem is played or sung;
(a) Designation.— The composition consisting of the words and music known as the Star-Spangled Banner is the national anthem. (b) Conduct During Playing.— During a rendition of the national anthem— (1) when the flag is displayed— (A) all present except those in uniform should stand at attention. (B) men not in uniform should remove their headdress with their right hand and hold the headdress at the left shoulder, (C) individuals in uniform should give the military salute at the first note of the anthem and maintain that position until the last note; and (2) when the flag is not displayed, all present should face toward the music and act in the same manner they would if the flag were displayed.

Shouldn't the man that wants to be Commander in Chief know this? Or due to his teachings is he showing America how he really feels.

Is Obama a man of his word? Click HERE to read about how Obama breaks his campaign financing promise. Fair and balanced, eh? And with his inauguration speech drafted already, he is planning the largest election night party in the history of the U.S. $2,000,000. - 2 MILLION DOLLARS. Hmmm... I wonder how many homeless he could feed on that kind of money. Or maybe we shouldn't worry about that because we will soon be feeding them with OUR monies, whether we want to or not (socialism), once his welfare system wealth distribution is in place.

All I can say is DO NOT underestimate our God! For all we know, Obama may be using his speech to read to his "punishments" grandchildren 25 years from now as he shares how he almost became president of the United States.

OBAMA SAYS, "TAKE THE DAY OFF AND GO VOTE!" Did you know that in Cuba it began with Castro asking people not to work to attend his sometimes 8 hour speeches? Today, in Cuba, workers are forced to attend those speeches, picked up by government buses at their work places and returned late in the evening. Of course, no pay for the day. Furthermore, no choice in whether you want to attend or not. This also goes for school age children from 1st grade through high school. That is why you see hundreds of thousands of people at Fidel's rallies. Not because they want to, but because they would be jailed if they refused.

Half-Hour Obama PROPAGANDA Infomercial to Air on 7 Networks - Again, remember what I mentioned about Castro's speeches to be heard by all? Today those Cuban TV channels are filled with communist propaganda and censored material. Is this what we should expect in our future? Is that what we want for our children? It starts out small, like delaying the start of the World Series for his infomercial. Do you have a choice on which to watch? May not seem like a big deal. But he's not in office yet. Want to learn more about Cuba's censorship? Click HERE and scroll down to number 7.

Please pray and think about it. Please think long and hard if you are still undecided about what you want for your future. Chances are, once he's in office, there is no turning back.

Finally, I will end with a statement from my friend, Daleea's blog.

"God has always blessed America...... my prayer is that America will bless God! He is worthy and in turn His blessings of mercy and grace will fall upon us....."


Many of you have asked if you could link my posts to your blog, or if you could copy my entries. Please feel free to do so. The only thing I ask is that you please leave me a comment or send me an EMAIL saying that you did and where it was posted. Thank you and God bless you.

Still undecided? (Part I)

We HAVE a choice! A choice to allow the killings to stop! Over 50,000,000 - FIFTY MILLION - babies have died since Roe vs. Wade was signed in 1973. We could stop this. We could be God's hands and feet. No, let me rephrase that, we are called to be God's hands and feet and to protect the sanctity of life under any circumstance from womb to tomb. We have exactly 1 week left to do this!

If Barack Hussein Obama becomes president, not only is our entire country in serious danger of becoming a socialistic country with huge threats to our security, but once Obama appoints the next 2 or 3 Supreme Court justices into office and with Congress soon becoming 100% liberal, we will be living a genocide of unborn babies for at least the next 25 or 30 years.

Do you really want the most inexperienced and liberal presidential candidate in US history at the helm? Do you really want Obama in power if in fact, Biden's words that "we will be tested", do occur? A man that has NO foreign policy experience in a world full of terrorism and who hates America? In fact, Joe Biden himself has questioned and admitted to the fact that Obama is not ready for the presidency. The Denver Post posted his remarks HERE.

Are you aware that because of Obama's relations with terrorists and marxists throughout the world, he would not even qualify to be an FBI agent because he would not pass security clearances? His list of "associates", for lack of a better word include, but are not limited to, people such as:

  • Antoin "Tony" Rezko - Mr. Rezko, a Syrian-born U.S. citizen described by the Chicago press as a "fixer," is now in federal detention in Chicago. In 2003, Obama announced he was running for the U.S. Senate, and Rezko -- a member of his campaign finance committee -- held a lavish fund-raiser June 27, 2003, at his Wilmette mansion. In October 2006 -- Rezko was indicted on charges he solicited kickbacks from companies seeking state pension business under his friend Governor Blagojevich. Federal prosecutors maintain that $10,000 from the alleged kickback scheme was donated to Obama's run for the U.S. Senate.
  • Nadhmi Auchi - Mr. Auchi apparently enters the political stage of Mr. Obama in 2003, when he was introduced to Mr. Rezko and became involved in developing a sixty-two-acre vacant lot along the Chicago River with his undercapitalized partner Mr. Rezko. Mr. Auchi is a prominent, mysterious figure, who was convicted in a French court in 2003 of political shenanigans in Iraqi oil contracts with regard French government officials and the oil giant TotalFinaElf. There are suspicions, never proven, of Mr. Auchi's commerce with Saddam Hussein, Muammar Qaddafi, and even the Byzantine and corrupt UN sanctions regime for Iraq called "Oil for Food." In liberated Baghdad, Mr. Auchi is still regarded as a "Saddam guy" by Iraqi politicians.

  • William C. Ayers - Known as Bill Ayers, is notorious as a terrorist bomber from the 1970s who, on September 11, 2001, in the New York Times was quoted as finding "a certain eloquence in bombs." Now, at 62, Mr. Ayers, a former aide to the current Mayor Richard M. Daley, is an established professor of education at the University of Illinois in Chicago. Importantly, Mr. Ayers and his wife, the equally notorious Weatherman terrorist Bernardine Dohrn, hosted a crucial meet-the-candidate event in their Hyde Park neighborhood home in 1995 when Mr. Obama, also a Hyde Park resident, was sounded out by vital citizens, among them the retiring state senator Alice Palmer for the 13th District. Mr. Ayers is widely quoted from his reminiscence, which appeared in the New York Times on the infamous Tuesday, September 11, 2001: "I don't regret setting bombs. I feel we didn't do enough." When asked in that same interview if he would set more bombs today, his response was, "I don't want to discount the possibility."

  • Rashid Khalidi - In Chicago in 1995, Mr. Khalidi and his wife Mona founded the Arab American Action Network (AAAN), a group associated with confrontational statements of support for Palestinians and antagonism toward Israel. In 2001 and again in 2002, the Woods Fund of Chicago, with directors Ayers and Obama, made grants of $40,000 and $35,000 to the AAAN. Importantly, the AAAN vice-president Ali Abunimah of Electronic Intifada has remembered Mr. Obama's speaking in 1999 against "Israeli occupation" at a charity event for a West Bank refugee camp; and Mr. Abunimah, an American citizen, Hyde Park resident and Princeton graduate, has also recalled Mr. and Mrs. Obama at a fundraiser held for the then-Congressional candidate Obama in 2000 at Rashid and Mona Khalidi's home, where Mr. Obama made convincing statements in support of the Palestinian cause.

  • Frank Marshall Davis - Mr. Davis was Obama's mentor according to the writings in his book, "Dreams From My Father". In 1950, the congressional House Un-American Activities Committee accused Davis of involvement in several communist-front organizations. The committee concluded that the Honolulu Record was “a front for the Communist Party, despite the fact that the paper does not make this admission.”[1]

    The committee’s report on the Honolulu Record states the following about Davis:
    1) Mr. Davis' column defends Communists and attacks capitalism with the same vigor as columns appearing regularly in the Daily Worker and other frankly Communist publications. Typical of Mr. Davis' remarks are the following:
    “Democracy today lies weak and slowly dying from the poison administered by the divident doctors in Washington and Wall Street who have fooled a trusting public into believing that they are the specialists who would save us from the dread diseases of socialism and communism. . . . They hope to hand us fascism disguised as the healed democracy.” (Honolulu Record, July 28, 1949, p. 8).
    2) Mr. Davis constantly defended the 11 top United States Communist officials recently convicted in New York on charges of conspiracy to advocate the overthrow of the Government by force and violence. One of Mr. Davis' comments on the case was as follows :
    3) “I feel strong sympathy for the Communist minority who are being oppressed for their political beliefs.” (Honolulu Record, October 20, 1949, p. 6).
  • Rev. Jeremiah Wright - Jeremiah Wright, has been Obama's pastor for the last 20 years at the Trinity United Church of Christ on Chicago's south side. Rev. Wright married Obama and his wife Michelle, baptized their two daughters and is credited by Obama for the title of his book, "The Audacity of Hope." An ABC News review of dozens of Rev. Wright's sermons, offered for sale by the church, found repeated denunciations of the U.S. based on what he described as his reading of the Gospels and the treatment of black Americans. "The government gives them the drugs, builds bigger prisons, passes a three-strike law and then wants us to sing 'God Bless America.' No, no, no, God damn America, that's in the Bible for killing innocent people," he said in a 2003 sermon. "God damn America for treating our citizens as less than human. God damn America for as long as she acts like she is God and she is supreme. We have supported state terrorism against the Palestinians and black South Africans, and now we are indignant because the stuff we have done overseas is now brought right back to our own front yards. America's chickens are coming home to roost," he told his congregation.

These are just some of Obama's "associates/friends/colleagues". Has the "Media Darling" been pressed for answers? No! Has he been consistently rhetorical and vague in the few questions he has been asked? Absolutely! It's scary that the media has scrutinized "Joe The Plumber" and humiliated and degraded Sarah Palin and her family, yet has so passively accepted the ambiguos answers Barack Hussein Obama has given. And HE is the one running for president. I don't know about you, but I think this is really scary stuff and Mr. Obama has a very disturbing pattern of who he associates with! I urge you not to take my word for it, do the research yourself. The only thing I ask is that you do it before you vote.

These elections are making history. Please pray if you are undecided. Pray hard. Look at where both candidates stand on all issues, but especially on their beliefs when it comes to life for the unborn. Look at what our country will be facing when so many of our liberties are taken away or radically changed, i.e.: Traditional marriages, gun-control, amnesty in immigration and relaxing the security in our borders, the rights to be informed if our teenage children are having abortions, removal of restrictions on partial birth abortions, expanding the removal of God in schools, stronger unions and the elimination of secret ballots, and that's just a few!

With close to 160 million Christians in the U.S., we CAN do this! Maybe we should start by asking ourselves, "What would Jesus do?" I think it would be a pretty safe bet to say that Christ would not vote for Obama.

Please take a moment to watch this video. It may change your life.


* This week, I am fasting and praying the Catholic Novena located on my sidebar. For my non-Catholic friends, there is a great Prayer Points guide that was given to me by one of my readers, which I've also posted on my sidebar. Although Obama has already written his inauguration speech, I know that God is in control and NOTHING is impossible for our God! Will you please join me in prayer and fasting this week?

"When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command locusts to devour the land or send a plague among my people, if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land. Now my eyes will be open and my ears attentive to the prayers offered in this place." - 2 Chronicles 7:14

My 300th post! (And of course, Not Me! Monday)

It's hard to believe that this is my 300th post!

Wow! That's a whole lot of talkin'! I am so excited! I need to think of something to celebrate the occasion with my bloggy friends. Hmmm...maybe another giveaway is in the near future.

But now it's time to read about all the things that I did not do this week!

1) I did not sit in my family room one day this week and pretend I was "Jeannie" from I Dream of Jeannie and blink my eyes while nodding my head in the hopes that maybe, just maybe, my house would magically appear cleaned. That would be crazy. I am a very stable girl who surely knows that the blinking of eyes while nodding does not produce a clean house.

2) I did not have a Smart One (Weight Watchers Brand so no cheating) Key Lime pie at midnight one day this week. After eating said pie, I absolutely did not lick the small plastic tray the pie came in so that I could make sure I got every last bit since the portions seem to be created for ants. There is no way I’d do something so disgusting. My Mama taught me good table manners and I always use them, even when I’m left starving after being teased with a 2-bite pie.

3) I did not completely convince my 4 year old son that being a doctor was the most amazingly, terrific Halloween costume in the whole world, just because it was on sale for $12.99. I did not roll my eyes and sigh heavily when I noticed the price tag on the one that he really wanted. It was $39.99 and not even a good costume. That sure was not me! A good mother would encourage her child to follow through on his dreams and imagination and not think about the cost.

4) I did not try on Anna Grace’s Halloween costume and fall madly and completely in love with how magnificently, beautiful she looked in it. I did not think that her million-dollar smile would melt every heart she’d encounter as she trick-or-treats through the neighborhood. I also did not tear up and wish with all my heart that I could smother her with hugs and kisses and tell her how much I loved her, without fearing what the next day would be like. (Off the record: Someday I know I'll be able to....I just know it!)

5) I did not attempt to trim AJ’s hair only to have “slipped” with the trimmers and ended up having to shave it all off. After my last hair fiasco, I was completely convinced that I should stay away from everyone’s hair. I was not trying to be frugal when I decided I would cut it myself. That would be absurd and cheap. Therefore, it was not me! He does not still look completely A.D.O.R.A.B.L.E!!!!

6) I know that it was not me that took AJ into the bathroom at the dentist office to change his poopy diaper, only to realize after uncovering such a mess that the stench was so bad that I was completely embarrassed. It also was not me that took said diaper with me into the car so that I could throw it out in a garbage can at the gas station down the street., only to forget to do so. Instead, it was not me that went straight home, took the kids out of the car and closed up the car. There is no way that I would have left that stinky, reeking, poopy diaper, that by now had rolled under the seat in the locked car, in the garage in Florida's 90 degree weather for 2 days. I know that no one would ever accuse me of doing such a thing, especially when we went to get in the car for a family outing with Scott and we opened the door the smell almost knocked us over. We did not have to drive with the windows down in the rain and our heads hanging just so that we could breathe fresh air, while I listened to sweet husband scold me the entire way. That would be totally disgusting and nasty. It was not me!
