Vote! VOTE!!! vote!

Tomorrow is voting day in Florida and I am passionate about getting out and voting.  Some may say that, "it doesn't really matter..." but I believe  that as a Christian we have an obligation to get out and vote for a candidate that will best mirror our very own beliefs and convictions.  I found this email a few weeks ago and posted it to my Facebook... I recently asked my neighbors' little girl what she wanted to be when she grows up. She said she wanted to be President some day. Both of her parents, liberal Democrats, were standing there, so I asked her, 'If you were President what would be the first thing you would do? ' She replied, I'd give food and houses to all the homeless people. Her parents beamed with pride. 'Wow...what a worthy goal.' I told her, 'But you don't have to wait until you're President to do that! You can come over to my house and mow the lawn, pull weeds, and trim my hedge, and I'll pay you $50. Then I'll take you over to the grocery store where the ...

What Stirs You?

It's January 24th, almost a month into the new year.  So what have you been up to?  Are you still on that diet you started on the first Monday of the month? Have you cleaned out the clutter you promised yourself?  Or do you find yourself asking, "is January REALLY almost over?"  What is it that gets you motivated to do something?

Ask yourself the question this year!

I always love a brand new year.  It's better than a new month, week or a day.  A new year gives you a fresh start to make goals and see them through.  The last few years have definitely had their ups and downs, but each year has had some real learning experiences and victories.  Each new year for me, is a chance to look back and see what my growth in Christ has been.  I have done this every year for probably the last fifteen years.  It is a simple question I ask myself... Let me stop before I give you that question and try to put this in perspective. How  many of you have a spot in your house, either your childhood home or your current home where you have stood, (or made your kids stand) while you were  measured  and  it was marked with a pencil.  Why do we do this?  We want to see how much our kids have grown over the past six months or year.  We compare it to other siblings, while the kids are at a race to be as tall as their parents or in our house their grandma.  Craig's ...
