Unless you are a musician you probably don't get this. Every instrument you see is used. Nothing is random. All instruments used are seen at least once. No lip syncing. Overdubbing on multiple tracks a la Mary Ford. OK, worship bands...the bandwagon is leaving. Get on board.
There is a time to keep silence. Carter never figured that out.
This is beyond belief
$1.15 billion in funding for a case known as Pigford II.
The money will be doled out in payments of $50,000 for more than 90,000 alleged black farmers.
From the initial class action suit, Pigford vs. Glickman, Shirley
Sherrod and her husband received $13 million. In addition to the $13
million, the USDA gave her a job in their ranks. John Boyd, founder of the National Black Farmers Association, has admitted only 18,000 black farmer actually exist.
you gotta see this
Pretty Good. Brought a tear at the end.
Hearing the heads of the Department of Justice and the Department of
Homeland Security talk about how they’re going to fight nonexistent
anthropogenic global warming reminds me of the days when I worked for the federal government and the powers-that-be would make lofty
pronouncements about things that had nothing to d...o with the job I did, and expect me to–in a vital, meaningful and exciting way–connect my day-
Very interesting none the less

When I moved to IL 25 years ago I was SHOCKED by the level of Corruption. Not so much now. BUT, make no mistake, IL is the most corrupt state in the union and Chicago is the 2nd most corrupt major city (right behind Detroit). We need a revival.
I miss having Condi on the job. Smart lady.
The Biddies on the View are cruel and without any heart at all. I too am an easy cry. What is up with this? Thank God for Elisabeth.
I have always loved this story and have tried to comport my life to it. The worst decisions I ever made were made in the heat of battle. Many who think they are quick on their feet in decisions are in reality not prepared for the wind.
Has anyone asked the real question? Has TSA stopped even ONE terrorist? NONE of the bombers captured over the last couple years was because of TSA. Isn't this all a show? Stupid? Angering? Why are we doing this?
More food for thought

You are about to celebrate your LAST CHRISTMAS on earth according to Family Radio. This is why I have become less and less interested in end time insanity. Family Radio's Camping has predicted that this time for sure now, without a doubt the world will come to an end on May 21, 2011. It won't, but it's sad that many are deceived by this foolishness.

The current government is not sweet, is anything but clueless -- it just doesn’t care about the same things you do -- and the amplifier has been recently modified to play at 25, while they tell you soothingly it’s been scaled back to a 6, honest.A good read
The squatters are still in there, furiously trying to pull
the plumbing out of the fiscal walls before they’re evicted.
No, the House, Senate and Presidency aren’t Spinal Tap, or Chance the Gardener, or if you’re from the paranoid end of the AM dial, they’re not Hitler, either. They’re copper thieves.

It was a gift. It keeps giving.
Now 51 years later I was given a ring that belonged to my father. It had been in a drawer somewhere. I don't have many things of his anymore. A few pictures and such. But this was meaningful. Ruth gave me another gift other than her time. I'm very touched. I wish there were other things that connected to the past like that.
It was in pretty bad shape. He might have been wearing it when he was killed. It was banged up pretty badly.
In any case I took it to a jeweler and had it straightened out, re-sized and cleaned.
Many years ago a signet ring was the thing to have. This is that.
Here are a couple pictures of it. It might not mean much to anyone else, but it means a lot to me.
Read the whole thing, it's worth the read
God's plan is not this world's plan and His ways and thoughts are not ours. Humanity's way has no room for a Divine and caring Creator; so, many prefer to ignore God's miraculous reality and substitute humanity's impossibility where nothing brings something out of nothing. God's way says husbands love your wives and children respect your parents, but humanity's way maintains God's way is too restrictive and too restraining. Gladly, gleefully, we substitute a society where each person is his own master with his own set of rules or lack of rules. And as we cheer at our successes and celebrate Christianity's demise, the wise of this world do not note the sadness and sorrow of souls who have no anchor; they ignore the desperation, the depression, the discouragement, and horrifying hopelessness of the faces all around them. Man's ways are not God's and our thoughts are not His.
Because that is so, authors without understanding make their fortunes writing fictional books which undermine God's inspired Holy Word; Schools try to teach students, but they forget any education which neglects the spirituality of their charges is a poor and pitiful thing. We banish God from classroom and courtroom; we expel Him from family and morality: we outlaw Him from business and leisure and then when chaos ensues, when hatred erupts in violence and war, when drug trafficking sweeps through our streets and violence stalks our walled and gated neighborhoods, we do not look to ourselves, we do not blame ourselves; we do not reform ourselves, we say, "God, how can You be so cruel, so uncaring, so... so unchristian?"
