When Minister Joe Wright was asked to open the new session of the
Kansas Senate, everyone was expecting the usual generalities,
This is what they heard;
We come before you today
To ask your forgiveness and
To seek your direction and guidance.
We know Your Word says,
"Woe to those who call evil good"
But that is exactly what we have done.
We have lost our spiritual equilibrium
And reversed our values.
We have exploited the poor and
Called it the lottery.
We have rewarded laziness
And called it welfare.
We have killed our unborn
And called it choice.
We have shot abortionists
And called it justifiable.
We have neglected to discipline
Our children and called it
Building self esteem.
We have abused power
And called it politics.
We have coveted our neighbor's
Possessions and called it ambition.
We have polluted the air
With profanity and
Pornography and called it
Freedom of speech and expression.
We have ridiculed the time
Honored values of our
Forefathers and called it enlightenment.
Search us, Oh, God,
And know our hearts today;
Cleanse us from every sin
And set us free.
The response was immediate. A number of legislators walked Out
During the prayer in protest.
In 6 short weeks, Central Christian Church, where Rev. Wright is
Pastor, logged more than 5,000 phone calls with only 47 Of those
Calls responding negatively. The church is now receiving International requests for copies of this prayer from India , Africa and Korea .
Commentator Paul Harvey aired this prayer on his radio Program, "The
Rest of the Story," and received a larger response to this program
Other he has ever aired.
With the Lord's help, may this prayer sweep over our Nation and
Wholeheartedly become our desire so that we again can be called "one
Nation under God."

|You Are 28% Girly|
You are a pretty hardcore tomboy, and a very free spirit.
Gender roles be dammed, you like to do things your way.

Before I was a Mom I never held down a screaming child so doctors could do tests. Or give shots. I never looked into teary eyes and cried. I never got gloriously happy over a simple grin. I never sat up late hours at night watching a baby sleep.
Before I was a Mom I never held a sleeping baby just because I didn't want to put him down. I never felt my heart break into a million pieces when I couldn't stop the hurt. I never knew that something so small could affect my life so much. I never knew that I could love someone so much. I never knew I would love being a Mom.
Before I was a Mom I didn't know the feeling of having my heart outside my body. I didn't know how special it could feel to feed a hungry baby. I didn't know that bond between a mother and her child. I didn't know that something so small could make me feel so important and happy.
Before I was a Mom I had never gotten up in the middle of the night every 10 minutes to make sure all was okay. I had never known the warmth, the joy, the love, the heartache, the wonderment or the satisfaction of being a Mom. I didn't know I was capable of feeling so much, before I was a Mom.

Ever since we had the ice storm here in OKC this tree has been down in our back yard. It broke off of our neighbors tree. They need to clean it up, however, they refuse! It is actually a property manager/owner that refuses. Therefore we are going to have to make an appearance in her office next week with an arborist to explain that it is indeed unhealthy and rotten in certain areas. I am not looking forward to this. Yes, I am thankful that no one was hurt and that it did not take down any power lines!
That being said, I need it out of my yard. My little ones would like to play.

I actually keep trying to change this ugly background. I found several darling backgrounds but when I paste them and then preview my selection most of my page elements are missing??? My friends in blogland, html, pictures, etc...
If anyone could help me I would be very thankful.
Tomorrow I believe I am going on a hot date with my hubby. A local guitarist/singer is performing at Galileo's in Paseo. I really want to see him. I heard he is really good. Can't think of his name right now or I'd post a link. We haven't been out together in sometime. It is always much needed.
I will write more with a little more detail tomorrow. I am off to stare at the wall, or better yet warm my cold feet against Dave...Oh he'll love that. If you see me with a black eye you'll know why. He can be really crazy when he is in a deep sleep. Smile.

Sophie is very verbal to say the least. She loves to sing. Her daddy is top on her list! Although she is shy at first she always remembers a face and many times a name. Last Sunday at Church, during worship she yelled out several peoples names as she saw them. Although it was cute as ever, it was a little distracting to those around us.
I could easily blog all day about my kids. I just wanted to make sure and mention little Sophie, after writing mostly about Davis.
I must go to bed for now...

The boys went to see National Treasure. I had no desire. I think I need to watch the first one before I go to the 2nd. I'd rather read blogs.
