So after thinking and listening to various sources over the past couple of weeks, I have decided to write a follow up to my last post. That post was written in haste and with a lot of passion and heat behind it. Maybe it wasn't the best thing to write, but I will stand by what I said and not back down. With that said I feel I must add what I am about to say. My pastor stood up for his values the Sunday after the election and I was so happy to hear it being preached. A lot of it was hard to hear, but it is biblically sound. As a Christian we are called to pray for and submit to authority. That is what we are called to do and that is what we have been told through God's word. Now we are not called to submit to man, but to the authority of the government. As the bible put it we are to submit to our king. Literally that was talking about a true king of the day or in our day now, our president. Now before you bite my head off in no way am I calling Obama king. I am taking the literal translation of the bible. It was hard to think of and to swallow, but it is true. And if we look at it the bible was talking about the emperor of the time period. A man known to the world as Nero...yep one of the most cruelest and violent leaders ever to rule. Yet God spoke through the bible to tell the Jews to even submit to this man...the man who more than likely burned part of Rome and blamed it on the Jews. They were still to submit to his authority. Unbelievable, but true. So I personally have to realize that though I agree with nothing he believes in, it is my duty as a Christian to pray for him and his decision making. Pray that he turn to God for his decisions and for God to bless our nation and our government. The one warning given to us is to only submit to his authority as long as it means not destroying the authority of God. Once it crosses the line of being blasphemous or corrupt to the holy word of God then we must oppose it. Anyway I just wanted to share this with the few out there who have commented to my last post. So to all who read this...Pray for our government and our president because they need it and we need it as a nation.

I don't know about anyone else out there, but I hope this country is still intact after this election. I don't care if he is charismatic or speaks a good game, he is not for this country! My daughter is the most precious thing to me ever! Yet in Obama's world her life is not important. If her mother had decided to abort her, he would be ok with that. Even if she was 7 or 8 months pregnant! What the crap? How can anyone with morals and values even think that was ok? I am sorry if I offend anyone out there, but I am not going to stand by and let my feelings or values be ignored or unknown. My family means the most to me. We believe in the bible and what the bible preaches. Abortion is a sin and it is murder. Get over it, but it is. Everyone be honest with me. If you don't agree then fine, but let me know why. I am praying for this country because I want my daughter to have a place where she can grow up free and where her values are the same as the country around her. I have been proud of my country many times, but I am not proud of it tonight. Race became the reason to vote and that is wrong. I don't care if you are black, white, blue or yellow. I care about my values and that is how I vote. Anyway I am going to quit ranting now. God bless America...we need it!

Just letting you know that I have not forgotten about my blog. I have recently moved and I don't have a computer right now. I am having to borrow my brother's right now just to do this post. I will be back very soon. But in the meantime here are some pics from moving day!
