Memorial Day

Today should be one of the most important holidays we celebrate, right next to Christmas, and Easter(but not the way they celebrate them now, celebrate them the right way.) Today, we should remember that they are not only fighting a physical battle, but they are also fighting a war inside them, as are we. But today is not about us, today is about our troops, who would willingly give their lives and sleep in dirt so you can go to sleep in your nice, comfy bed. Here are two videos I found that I like and that I hope you will too.

(family friendly website)

I like this one too:

And with that, I bid you a Happy Memorial Day, and God bless our troops!

another recession...

a few nights ago, I was watching the news, and there was a news reporter on and she said : "well, being in a recession isn't the best thing in the world, but there is a good thing about it, restaurants are selling their food really cheap." that was not her exact words, but pretty accurate, but it occurred to me that we, as America, do not understand how serious this recession is... there is a recession, and we are in it, but we are not experiencing the set backs and danger yet. I hope you will understand how serious it is, and will not be going for those "great deals" because it would not be very smart. Instead, try to be smart with your money, making a budget when you go shopping, don't listen to those reporters who say to basically "have fun and blow all your money." God lets us go through this stuff again and again because we don't try to learn from them. Have you ever heard the term "history repeats itself"? Well it really does , BECAUSE WE DON'T LEARN FROM IT!!!!!! God works in such remarkable ways because He does it in such subtle ways, for example, were going in another recession because:

  • we don't learn how to: spend our money wisely
  • invest in foolish ways
  • we buy stuff from other countries very cheaply

I can't tell you how to avoid this recession, but I just wanted to shed some light on it, and tell you how God wants your attention, He wants you to learn from this stuff, and that He will be glorified in all this!

The mind of toddlers

I always wondered what toddlers are thinking of... and I have an idea, it should sound like this:
"Hey, where am I? oh, man! those big people put me in this big, soft, cage again! I must have been here all night!" (yelling) "hello! hello! I`m awake! someone get me out of this cage!"(of course I`d like to add that when they are trying to tell us something, they just sound like they are crying.) "I wish they would not change my pants so often, I worked hard to make that cushion! I`m hungry." ( yelling, again) " hey, big person! feed me already! I`ve been waiting all morning!
c`mon already! I`M HUNGRY!.... oh, no...oh,no... please don`t put me in the seat again! no,no, I don`t need the buckles this time. I promise that I won`t jump out of the seat again. that was a one time deal. No! no!... ugh, fine!" (later) "No! don`t take those blocks from me! I was using those!
no! stop putting my toys up! I know where everything is! uh, uh, I don`t want a bath! no! no, I don`t want the fuzzy clothes... I don`t need to get my teeth scrubbed... no...not the cage again... :yawn: I don`t want to go to sleep....... not the music........... please don`t put the blanket on.................... zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz............ (repeat from very beginning)
