Things are crazy. Christmas is HERE and Thanksgiving is only next week! I am pretty much done shopping, I still have toys to purchase. I am going to try to fight through the "after Thanksgiving Sales" to catch some deals. As MUCH as I TRULY HATE Holiday Crowds... I have to to this year. My Budget says so :) That's all for now...
My baby brother (darnell) got married last weekend.. Here are a few photos..

Today JA Elementary School had a pancake breakfast to honor veterans.
Deuteronomy 5:16 Honor your father and your mother, as the LORD your God commanded you, [ Deuteronomy 4:40] that your days may be long, and that it may go well with you in the land that the LORD your God is giving you.
Well Dad, we honor you everyday.. Thank you for all that you have done..

So The Ignorance Begins.... We all knew it was coming. I am not shocked nor upset by the Noose. Annoyed is more like it. Come one “Generation” what are you going to accomplish but hanging a noose and burning Obama pictures? Christians believe what the bible says "love your neighbor as you love yourself". If you don’t believe me.. read for yourself.
Romans 13 Submission to the Authorities
1Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. 2Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment. 3For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad. Would you have no fear of the one who is in authority? Then do what is good, and you will receive his approval, 4for he is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God’s wrath on the wrongdoer. 5Therefore one must be in subjection, not only to avoid God’s wrath but also for the sake of conscience. 6For because of this you also pay taxes, for the authorities are ministers of God, attending to this very thing. 7 Pay to all what is owed to them: taxes to whom taxes are owed, revenue to whom revenue is owed, respect to whom respect is owed, honor to whom honor is owed.
People keep saying He’s BLACK, Obama is mixed, and I will be interested to find out the nationality of the people who hung the noose.. I wonder if their mom is the same nationality as Obama’s momma? (hmmmm interesting thought) I will be glad when this world can come together (ALL nationalities) just like everyone did for this election. It’s time for a reality check. People need to grow up and get over it. Realistically speaking, I know more ignorance is on the way. I am going to continue to pray for the United States of America as well as the First Family.
~ God’s love to each of you

WOW… I am ecstatic! I never thought that in MY lifetime I would see an African-American (or any race other than the previous 43) president. I am not just proud because Barack Obama is African-American, I am proud for many reasons. He is so eloquent when he speaks. He is elegant and knowledgeable. He is not afraid to get his hands dirty. He loves his wife and speaks highly of her. He seems to be a wonderful father. He has Sparked the NATION in the election process and politics. I am a proud NON-Voter for the last 28 years. I hate politics because I always felt that politicians were liars. I honestly feel that both candidates had good aspects as well as bad ones.
I was prepared to support either elected president. I am so proud of everyone that voted in this election. No matter who you voted for, you are a part of history and there for everyone should be proud.
It was interesting how at McCain Rally the crowd booed when Obama’s name was mentioned. Yet at the Obama rally the crowd cheered when McCain’s name was mentioned. I have much respect for John McCain he would make a wonderful president.
Now Our job is to pray for our new president. I am proud and I hope you are just as proud. My child will teach her children who Barack Obama is and how she watched history in the making with her dad and mom. God Bless our president and God bless each of you.

Today’s CNN headline: Polls open as
History.... that's such a strong word. Something we only see in history books, or something our elders tell us about, or something we research for. History!! This will be in the history books that our children read, and their children, etc. Today each of us can take part in voting that will ReWRITE history for OUR offspring’s.
Some of our ancestors did for this the right to vote. This world is in need of some changes. I pray that everyone votes from their heart and NOT their eyes. People don't want to talk about racism but it exists, YES today. And though I am one person, and I can't change the world, I am going to pray that our next leader can, and will!
Happy Voting day everyone.

I came across this site today regarding Natural Medicine.
It's so informative. It allows you to search for Naturopathic Physicians, Nurse Midwives, Holistic Dentistry, etc near you.
(now those are hard to come by!) I hope this helps someone!~ Be Blessed
