B is Bananas....

Hello Lovely friends! It has been a minute since the last time we chatted so I thought I would make a comeback with a music video. This past December, my good friend Millie came to visit her good cajun buddies and while she was here, Kelly,Millie, Josh Smith, and myself went to a concert in shreveport. Afterward on the drive home we were inspired to do a music video since we had one of America's top videographers in our midst. So what you are about to witness is the brainchild of Joshua Smith of Cinematic Bride and three silly girls. We chose the song, dressed up like goofs, had Kelly's brother make our hair crazy and from 12:30am until 4:30am Josh shot it for us. He used the Canon 5D Mark II. It was a blast and here is a peek at us in being crazy between the hours of 12:30am and 4:30pm... it was a blast but don't hold anything against us, we were a little delusional! http://www.cinematicbride.com/blog/

Thoughts from a Man I GREATLY Respect and Admire

Please read an excerpt from a Pastor that I GREATLY respect.... Dr. John Piper

One-Issue Politics, One-Issue Marriage, and the Humane Society

Posted in: Politics Articles
By John Piper

Investigating dog life in Minnesota has solidified my decision to vote against those who endorse the right to abortion. So then what is my response to the charge of being a one-issue voter?

No endorsement of any single issue qualifies a person to hold public office. Being pro-life does not make a person a good governor, mayor, or president. But there are numerous single issues that disqualify a person from public office. For example, any candidate who endorsed bribery as a form of government efficiency would be disqualified, no matter what his party or platform was. Or a person who endorsed corporate fraud (say under $50 million) would be disqualified no matter what else he endorsed. Or a person who said that no black people could hold office—on that single issue alone he would be unfit for office. Or a person who said that rape is only a misdemeanor—that single issue would end his political career. These examples could go on and on. Everybody knows a single issue that for them would disqualify a candidate for office.

It's the same with marriage. No one quality makes a good wife or husband, but some qualities would make a person unacceptable. For example, back when I was thinking about getting married, not liking cats would not have disqualified a woman as my wife, but not liking people would. Drinking coffee would not, but drinking whiskey would. Kissing dogs wouldn't, but kissing the mailman would. And so on. Being a single-issue fiance does not mean that only one issue matters. It means that some issues may matter enough to break off the relationship.

So it is with politics. You have to decide what those issues are for you. What do you think disqualifies a person from holding public office? I believe that the endorsement of the right to kill unborn children disqualifies a person from any position of public office. It's simply the same as saying that the endorsement of racism, fraud, or bribery would disqualify him—except that child-killing is more serious than those.

When we bought our dog at the Humane Society, I picked up a brochure on the laws of Minnesota concerning animals. Statute 343.2, subdivision 1 says, "No person shall...unjustifiably injure, maim, mutilate or kill any animal." Subdivision 7 says, "No person shall willfully instigate or in any way further any act of cruelty to any animal." The penalty: "A person who fails to comply with any provision of this section is guilty of a misdemeanor."

Now this set me to pondering the rights of the unborn. An eight-week-old human fetus has a beating heart, an EKG, brain waves, thumb-sucking, pain sensitivity, finger-grasping, and genetic humanity, but under our present laws is not a human person with rights under the 14th Amendment, which says that "no state shall deprive any person of life...without due process of law." Well, I wondered, if the unborn do not qualify as persons, it seems that they could at least qualify as animals, say a dog, or at least a cat. Could we not at least charge abortion clinics with cruelty to animals under Statute 343.2, subdivision 7? Why is it legal to "maim, mutilate and kill" a pain-sensitive unborn human being but not an animal?

These reflections have confirmed my conviction never to vote for a person who endorses such an evil—even if he could balance the budget tomorrow and end all taxation.

Go Ahead Tarr and Feather Me, BUT....

Ok I have heard from many of you and have even received a few threats, uh-hem (SUMMER), about my lack of writing any original thought and posting stuff off you- tube or some other random article I find ...and though I really would LOVE to post something cleverly written and witty ---BUT I honestly just don't have it in me at this moment to do so, not when my heart is burdened and contemplative over current world happenings...I know several of you are still undecided on the election, but please let me PLEAD with you to sit before the LORD and honestly pray about the issues and the candidates, I am not saying that either ticket is perfect, and quite honestly I have problems with both candidates, but the problems I have with Sen. McCain pale in comparison with Sen. Obama. And the NUMBER 1 issue I am voting on is on the RIGHTS OF THE UNBORN--judge me if you will ---I simply can't get over this issue or INFANTICIDE!!! "Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy." Proverbs 31: 8-9. Recently I have been thinking a lot about this verse...just thought I would share this along with an article by a Christian African American Pianist, Huntley Brown on why he as a Christian first, can not vote for Senator Obama....PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE read it: it is very thought provoking. And I promise after the election and stuff calms down I will be more lighthearted, but I can also let you know that whoever the Sovereign Lord allows as our next president will have my prayer support.
