Don't feel alone in this, jaycee. I know many (mine is one of them) TVs are muted or channel changed when he appears. That doesn't make you, or anyone else, bad! I see it as just the opposite! *snicker*

I watch minimal TV so I don't have to see or hear him!

GOOD MILITARY MONDAY TO AMY’S PLACE!







The Soldier’s Code

1) I am an American fighting man. I serve in the forces which guard my country and our way of life. I am prepared to give my life in their defense.

2) I will never surrender of my own free will. If in command, I will never surrender my men while they still have the means to resist.

3) If I am captured, I will continue to resist by all means available. I will make every effort to escape and aid others to escape. I will accept neither parole nor special favors from the enemy.

4) If I become a prisoner of war, I will keep faith with my fellow prisoners. I will give no information or take part in any action which might be harmful to my comrades. If I am senior, I will take command. If not, I will obey the lawful orders of those appointed over me, and will back them up in every way.

5) When questioned, should I become a prisoner of war, I am bound to give only name, rank, service number, and date of birth. I will evade answering further questions to the utmost of my ability. I will make no oral or written statements disloyal to my country and its allies, or harmful to their cause.

6) I will never forget that I am an American fighting man, responsible for my actions, and dedicated to the principles which made my country free. I will trust in my God and in the United States of America.

President Dwight D. Eisenhower, August, 1955.






Genuflectimus non ad principem sed ad Principem Pacis!

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)

I run the t.v. all day but its easily muted. I think what I worry more about is our country. I don’t think there is any turning back for the country. The younger generation had a lot to do with this election. I’m not saying all, but the upcoming generations are not like we were and are. The schools have a lot to do with it; teachers, etc. They believe in anything these days and I only think it will get worse and not better. Seems pessimistic but thats the way I view things these days. I would like to think I’m wrong but the things I see in the world today, seems I may not be wrong.

When I read stories about what is being taught in schools these days, I cringe at some of it. And some things that go on are dispicable.

I'm so glad my 2 are grown and at least have a brain with a decent education. What they learned at home had a huge impact as well.

Now the grandchildren are a different story. 1 is extremely conservative. 1 is liberal. 1 doesn't live nearby so no idea about him. The youngest, so far, is conservative and pray he stays that way but, at 16, who knows!

Marissa probably thinks we will go shopping again tomorrow, but .... I plan to stay home until later in the week.

We have plans to go to Avila Beach next week. It is always relaxing and an enjoyable time for our family. Marissa really enjoys the beach.

You think like Marissa. She bought a pair of Stompeez today. I bought a new pair of leggings for her to wear under her pj’s on Friday. It could be a pretty cold morning.

These are difficult days to get through, Jaycee.

I often wonder why the lost ballots always are lost democrat ballots and the malfunctioning machines alway change the Rubpublic votes to Democratic votes. Why do we let them get away with this?

Talk about being taken .... LOL

The new slippers are called Stompeez (sp). They look like bunny slippers but when you walk the ears stand up with each stap. She thinks they are adorable. :)

They are cute, but I told her she would have to wear socks. No way can she go to school with slip-on slippers without something else on her feet.I guess that I’m overprotective.

Did You Say No?

November 13, 2012

“Okay, here are the rules,” Marty said. “You can do whatever you want, wherever you want, whenever you want until someone tells you no.”

Those were our instructions on our first visit to our friends’ lake house. Marty and his wife, Lynn, who enjoy entertaining, give their guests lots of freedom to enjoy themselves. When we noticed the sailboat next to the paddleboat next to the pontoon boat, we knew we were in for a fun afternoon.

Marty told us no only once—when he saw that we were about to feed the swans that swam up next to us. He knew that if the birds were fed once, they would become aggressive if they didn’t get fed the next time.

Adam and Eve lived in the most beautiful locale, and they too had lots of freedom. However, when God said no, they resisted (Gen. 3). He told them not to eat from a certain tree, but they thought they knew better.

Adam and Eve would have kept good company with a lot of us. Sometimes we can’t understand why our heavenly Father says no. When that happens, He can help us to adjust our thinking. We need to realize that even as He denies us, He’s saying to our hearts, “You can trust Me. I know what is best.”

I may not always understand
The way that You may lead,
But, Lord, in faith I’ll clasp Your hand
And trust You for each need. —Dean
God may deny our request,
but He will never disappoint our trust.

Read: Genesis 3:1-7

Of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat. —Genesis 2:17
Bible in a Year:
Acts 15-16

Thank you, yorkie. Its been cold here. I think all the leaves have fallen from my big poplar trees. They’ve been picked up 2 times and one more time should get the rest. The lawn movers bags them, thank goodness, so we don’t have to rake.

This weather has confirmed once again how I hate cold weather and the coming winter. (I figured Arizona would still be pretty.) The sun is shining here today but yesterday it was drizzly and dark all day....very depressing.

I didn’t leave the house yesterday but I’m getting ready to run out now to the post office and a couple other places. Who knows, it could snow tomorrow!! LOL!
