Debates, Debacles and Destiny

Last night I met with my Bible study small group. We are studying the parables of Jesus. We discussed the religious and political leaders of that time, which of course, led to today's leaders.

We discussed the debacle with the economy. We shared our thoughts on the candidates and the upcoming debates. All of us had differing opinions, except for one. The one truth that we agreed upon is that we serve the King of kings--the Lord Jesus Christ.
There is no debate on this issue for our group. This is our destiny.

For myself, I am blessed to be a part of Proverbs 31 Ministries. Proverbs 31 believes that everyone should have one destiny--eternal life with Jesus. I am proud to be a partner with this ministry and to give my time and money to help expand the kingdom of God.

At this time, uncertainty and crisis in our nation, why not cast your vote for something that will last for eternity? Help Proverbs 31 Ministries to further God's kingdom by becoming a monthly partner. Help us to bring God's peace, perspective and purpose to today's busy woman.

Put aside the debates and the debacles for today. Let's further the kingdom of God, it's a destiny that is eternal.

America at Its Finest

Saturday night my husband and I attended a small town rodeo in St. George, Utah. It was packed with families dressed up in cowboy boots and big belt buckles. Snow cones, nachos and hot dogs were feasted upon with great enthusiasm.

Before the start of the rodeo they honored all of the U.S. servicemen who have given their lives for our freedom and they prayed for the men and women who are currently serving our country with honor. They brought out American flags and they sang the national anthem. The announcer prayed for the evening and thanked God for the freedom to pray and to play in freedom. Truly it was America at its finest.

Please let's not take our freedoms for granted. If you are not registered to vote, please go register. The freedom to vote in an election should not be taken lightly--vote. Let's keep America at its finest.

A Day Off ?

My favorite commercial on TV right now, is a State Farm commercial. (Of course, it could have something to do with the fact my husband is a State Farm agent.) Anyway, I digress. The ad is the one with the young woman sitting in the airport with her laptop. She's complaining about how busy her life is and then she says, "I haven't had a day off since the 3rd grade!" Oh my! How I relate to that statement.

Life is so busy all the time. Even when I plan a day off, something happens, like my water heater ruptures, the car breakdowns or someone invites us to something that I feel we just can't miss. Honestly, it's been like that since the 3rd grade.

Currently, I am holed up finishing up my next manuscript. For the next ten day, my life is married to this manuscript. Once it in the hands of my editor. I am taking a day off!
