Happy Monday, my favorite day of the week! We get to start a whole new, fresh week today, and this week will be pretty busy. We're hosting a "Barnabas Team" from West Coast Baptist College, consisting of two young men who are spending the summer in BC getting some on-the-job training in missions. They'll be helping Wes with flier distribution this week, and I'll be feeding them lunch and supper each day. We had them in our services yesterday, and they were each a blessing as they preached last night. With two teenaged boys in the house, one of whom is about to leave for WCBC, we've heard lots of gaming, sports, and college talk. Our guys are enjoying having some new friends around this week. Beth is my right arm this week, too. She knows how I do things, and we are really beginning to work together well - plus she has more common sense than I do, and she often has a better idea to make things work more smoothly! ;) I like having a daughter to work with me!
In my spare time this week I'll be sewing, and in my sparer time I'll be taking care of my family. So blog posts may be a bit sparse. I do have one simmering - and I do mean simmering - about the "Town Hall Meeting" snippets that I saw on Good Morning America today with Presidential candidate John Edwards, a Democrat from North Carolina. I may as well go ahead and say what's on my mind and get it over with so I don't stew over it all week. Mr. Edwards believes that the Head Start Program, which is basically a 4-year-old kindergarten program, gets children too late. He said, "We need to get them much earlier." Excuse me, Mr. Edwards, but who says you can have my children at 2 and 3 years old?! This is the government basically saying, "Average mom of America, you don't know how to properly raise or educate your children. Give them to the government so that we can educate them for you. You really have no training for being a parent or teacher, so let us, the experts, help you." I don't have small children anymore, but someday I hope to have grandchildren, and I'm telling you, I will fight for my children and their children and the right to raise and educate them as we see fit! So. That's what's under my craw this morning. Wes and I are still American citizens, and we feel it's important to know the issues of the upcoming campaigns. But I will probably go insane yelling at the TV and radio and newspaper before it's all over! LOL
Ok. Now I have to go. I have a lot to do this morning. Hopefully I can fit in a post or two this week. Have a great week!
