\How can we comprehend the horror of that day? How can we even begin to imagine what that day was like? And how can we thank those who were there that day?...and are still with us today.....and those that have never come out of the Harbors shallow waters. How brave must one be to know that they would die that day and still fight with every ounce of courage that man can possess?
70 years ago today....2,402 lives were lost. This including soldiers, men, women, and children. The nation was saddened....only long enough to become angry......The Japanese had awoken a "sleeping giant".....and they knew it. America came together to avenge what had been taken from them......Taken but not lost....
On December 7, 1941 America wept...brave souls perished beneath the waves. How can we....the next generation even begin to understand the pain, the heartache,and the blood.....that America bore as well as gave?
The ear piercing sound of the bombs.....the spine tingling sound of the air planes above....and the heart breaking sound of each scream......That day, over 1,000 brave men gave there lives for the country they held dear.....a country they knew was worth dying for..."..the land of the free, and the home of the brave....." Brave they had been...and stronger America would become.
Now all is quiet......but...the voices of those who had fought that day...still echo in the souls of our generation to this very day.......and I wish to Honor them now...and thank them for their courage....and to let them know that they have not been forgotten.....nor any other Veterans of World War 2...Also at this time would like to Honor my Grandfathers...who served in WWII. One in the Navy and the other in The Army Air Force.
Thank you all.

Hello everyone! Today I would like to share with you something that has been going on in these recent weeks. My family and I are working out and are losing weight.....nothing wrong with that right?......Wrong! Losing weight is fine....but this is over the top! Example #1.....We walk for about 40 minutes a day.....I'm not just talking about a stroll in the park...no.....I mean power walk through fields and ditches....until you are ready to die. #2 Then...as if that wasn't hard enough....noooooooo.......then we are doing 36-48 sets of strengthening exercises.....leg lifts,...laying on your side and lifting the leg straight up into the air 48 times....up slow, down slow.....Then the double leg lifts...as if the signals didn't burn enough..we have to do this unjust maneuver with both legs at the same time without holding on to anything.....yeah. Later after you have passed out....then its crunches! After 48 of these...your neck is falling off..and your abdomen feels as if it is going to explode...After all of this is finally over..then we must stretch!...When at this point, I'm feeling pretty stretched out already....anyway..so touch your toe's and try to pretend that you feel no pain...as not to let the others think that you are the most out of shape.....then all is done and you feel as though you have accomplished something...and you sure have...The next morning..its time to awaken and greet the world...so we sit up.......ummmmm...we sit..uuuuuupppppp....*CRACK*.....*RIP*....aaaahh!!!! OK...so that is so not happening....ok...so we roll out of bed.....now that we are flat on our face........now..how to get up.

Hello everyone! My family and I are moving in about 2 weeks. There is a lot going on right now.....life is crazy. There is also some confusion as to some of the decisions to soon be made. There is just a lot to do. But....I have often prayed to the lord to help us in our confusion......for as I well know....God is not the author of confusion.
Luke 18:27....... "The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.
2Tim 2:1.......... "...be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.
The lord is faithful and true!
Prov. 3 says.........5Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; 6in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight
And so....I will keep praying and hoping for more answers.

It is necessary for the welfare of the nation that men's lives be based on the principles of the Bible. No man, educated or uneducated, can afford to be ignorant of the Bible."
- Theodore Roosevelt
Our Fore Fathers carved the way for our Nation to become a Nation.
"Intelligence, patriotism, Christianity, and a firm reliance on Him, who has never yet forsaken this favored land, are still competent to adjust, in the best way, all our present difficulty."
– Abraham Lincoln
Our country needs men who still believe this way still.
"The foundations of our society and our government rest so much on the teachings of the Bible that it would be difficult to support them if faith in these teachings would cease to be practically universal in our country."
- Calvin Coolidge, 1923
Amen! For our country began with the teachings of the bible! There was no other way of life.........God took presitent in the lives of the brave men who with the help of God almighty paved the way and died for us to be FREE!
"Without God there is no virtue because there is no prompting of the conscience...without God there is a coarsening of the society; without God democracy will not and cannot long endure...If we ever forget that we are One Nation Under God, then we will be a Nation gone under."
- Ronald Reagan
What he is saying is.......without God...............we are not a Nation. For we must ALWAYS be ONE Nation under GOD!
"It is when people forget God that tyrants forge their chains."
They forge the chains of a Godless country. But like it or not......we are not a Godless country....we are not a Godless world......He will never leave us nor forsake us! God be with us always! And may our nation NEVER forget not only what men have done.....but especially what GOD did and has done for ALL of us.....GOR BLESS AMERICA!

In watching this preview, it is obvious that this is going to be their finest film yet! This movie is a symbol of what being a Christ following father means. It is necessary to speak out on this subject of immediate importance. Their have been speeches made, and sermons spoken,.......but now they are speaking through the wide spread medium of America today...the MOVIES. This will inevitably catch the attention of many people today. Please watch this preview..and go and see this wonderful movie premiering...SEPTEMBER 30TH.

This video below is a symbol of COURAGE. When Martin Luther spoke out on realizing that God is LOVE and not a coin, the world started to change. He wanted the Bible to be a part of every ones lives. So, he printed it in a version that could be understood in the language of his people. And so, the people who claimed to have all authority on Christianity, tried to burn all of the ideas that Luther had instilled in the hearts of his people. He spread the word of the LIVING GOD, to who ever would listen,......and even to those who would not. He wanted TRUTH......and he found it in the word of GOD. He stood for what he knew was TRUE and would not recant.He answered to God's law...and not the worlds....no matter the cost.

Hello Everyone! I would like to share with you the joy of....wind...but not just wind......picnicking in it...#1...You drive up to the mountains...all the while watching the temperature drop at lest 30 degrees from where you started from.......#2......You get out of the car and....well you attempt to get out of the car.....you take a yank on the door handle......and well...."it isn't moving.." you think to yourself. You also notice that the wind is blowing on towards you...so your brother opens his slider door with ease.....of course laughing at your poor effort......."poor effort...please! I think my shoulder's been dislocated!" You're getting angry at this point....you finally give one last yank.....and open it comes alright..........the force...that of an F-5 twister....your hair is straight back....your brother flies out of the other side....... and you can no longer see...#3 After you put your hair back....even though its already permanently back....and you finally find your brother who had been swept halfway down the mountain and into a prickle bush........you all grab the food and head for a comfy place to sit. Your mom is dishing out the food and calls for you. She hands you a stack of styrofoam plates.....suddenly a GUST of wind smacks you in the back and the stack goes flying.....Your little brother...while taking a bight of his 3 decker burger....yells.."Hey look..Frisbee's!"........You stand up....the wind still strong.....you stick to the car like a dead insect picked up while driving the highway. "What a dope." You murmur. #4.......FINALLY, you have your sandwich together....you decide to sit by a comfy tree......suddenly a mammoth bug decides it likes the look of your leg and crawls onto it.....keeping calm..(as calm as a girl can..in a situation such as this...) you take your hand off of your sandwich to swish it off.....and poof! Bye, bye sandwich........aha, the bugs gone....you open to take a bite....and bite into a nice flavorful piece of lettuce. You spit out the sad remains of a once beautiful sandwhich.....and stare into space...after the events of today..you think about having a funeral to dedicate such a once beautiful meal.#5...Well, time to go home......pack up the gear and all of what hasn't blown away....and head for the car......once again....a massive gust of wind swoops you and everything else you WERE holding....off the ground......you grab onto the first thing that you see....a long tree branch...(and wouldn't it just be the smallest, weakest stick known to man?) You suddenly hear a snap..."Oh great..." You yell.......Well you're on the ground again....."Well I give up." You lie there and start blowing with the wind...."Bye!" Thank you everyone!

Hello everyone! I wanted to share these trailers with you. When I was little, I used to watch these movies and they really meant a lot to me. These movies represent what every boy can be. The true American boy.......who longs to become a man. Boys Town, (the first film) tells the story of Father Flanagan (Spencer Tracey) and his dream to build a home for boys. And Whitey Marsh (Mickey Rooney) a boy who came to him as a 'big shot'...and discovered who he really was. Flanagan became a father to him...and a true friend. In..Men of Boys Town, (the second film) Father Flanagan struggles to make ends meat....and Whitey Marsh finds a little boy in need... and does everything in his power to help him. Stuck in the middle of what is True...and what is Safe....Whitey finds himself in trouble. But, he sticks to what he believes....and discovers that..."the truth will set you free.." These movies represent Courage, Faith, Determination, Truth, Justice, Love, and Strength. And what Father Flanagan stood by and built his life upon.....the belief that..."There is no such thing as a bad boy....."
You can find these films at your local library.
