I know it's not just me

But doesn't it seem like Washington is getting their knickers in a knot?  Such Drama and yes I capitalized it cause that is how they are.  They create all this mess....and then bicker about it forever and then when something has a deadline, they start accusing the other party that they are at fault if they miss the deadline.

Seriously, someone needs a spanking or at the very least a permanent time out!

They KNOW they are suppose to have a budget by a certain time, why not just whack it out first thing and then move on?  Do they lose their common sense when they take the oath of office?  I know they promptly forget that very oath as they pass unconstitutional law after unconstitutional law.

I sit back and just shake my head at all these "sheeple" who put their trust in these men and women.  Especially after what some of them say.... remember the famous "we have to pass it so that we can read what is in it" comment?  or sadly that comment of  "what does it matter anyways?"

These things and others really drive home that warning we have:   Ps 146:3 Do not put YOUR trust in nobles,   Nor in the son of earthling man, to whom no salvation belongs.

I'm torn between just sitting back and watching it all fall apart or taking an active part in helping it along.  It really bothers me that I have to sign up for some ...what do they call them....?  exchanges?  Yes, some healthcare exchange because that will indeed help it topple faster.... but I must obey the laws of the land as long as they do not conflict with the law of God.  

In other news, my pecan tree sure has a lot of pecans on it.... must gonna be a harsher winter this year.  :) take care!

A few of the blogs I read

I try to keep up with several blogs.  It's not easy with my busy schedule.  (not sure where all the time goes) But I wanted to give a sample of some of my favorites.  At least those which seem to post more frequently and thus are at the top of my "blog list" right now.  There are others, several in fact, that do not post as regularly.

Here is Stephen's blog, this man is amazingly patient and sweet (despite him pretending he is not) and has the biggest heart I've ever "seen".  His post today is about someone who came into his shop.  He has several such stories of those customers.  His insights on people and life are spectacularly correct IMO.  Just click on the name of his blog:


Another blog I love is "Sara's".  She not only posts interesting happenings about her family and homestead but she is an awesome writer and has several great stories!  (I will have to see if I have linked them on my own story blog)


Now this next blog is about a family that just amazes me.  They have several kids, several.  And right now they are going through a heart wrenching experience with their newborn son, Finn.  He was born premature and is going through a lot in his little life.  I keep them in my heart and prayers, always hoping for the best for them.  The writer of the blog is the Mom and she is an exceptional writer.  Please check them out but do not do so if you are going to nag or make them feel bad in any way for having so many kids.  Because we NEED more families like this.  Kids who are respectful but KIDS!  They need encouragement, compassion, and LOVE.


This next blog is about how to live frugally and believe me, this lady has it down to a science!  She posts about how to save and made do and all kinds of other connecting areas.  I just love to read her writings because she does have a sense of humor too.


So there are just a few of my favorite blogs to keep up with.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. :) have a great day!
