Happy Loving's Day!!!

A lot of people don't even know this day exist or what it's about so I'm going to talk about today.

I learned about this couple when I was around 17 years old.
In the 1950's an interracial couple by the name of Richard and Mildred Loving got married unbeknownst to the government of Virginia where they resided. At that time however it was illegal in Virginia for an interracial couple to marry and so started years of turmoil for the Loving who tried to get their marriage legalized.

There is a HBO documentary on the Loving Story.

One thing I don't agree with that's pressing on my heart to mention is homosexual marriage. So that know one will misunderstand my promotion of this day as as gay/lesbian support I write this.

Mildred Loving has said she supports homosexuality and that's where her and I depart ways. Comparing her situation to gays and lesbians is completely wrong in my opinion. I see where she sees the similarity in the fact that she and …


Hey yall,

   I haven't been here in a while. I just wanted to let you all know of my struggles and if it can enlighten anyone else that's even better. I know the Bible says drinking wine and even beer isn't wrong it's just the getting drunk part that can lead you to sin and un-Christ-like behavior is what he's trying to protect us from. I understand the rule, principle, and consequences of the rule. Since I have a self-realized consumption problem I want to stay away from alcoholic beverages altogether so I won't accidently get drunk.

   Taking this all into account, I've sort of developed a disdain for people who drink even though there is no biblical law against drinking and I'm trying to get over that. I know there are many people who drink to get drunk but my perspective of a person who drinks is what bothers me. I think it's wrong to add to the bible or make other feel bad for something there is no biblical law against. As the Word itself say j…

Home-schooling Family Who Fled to U.S. from Germany Face Deportation

Being a former homeschool student, who plans to homeschool my own children, I realize how much hate the government has for us. I hope our government doesn't turn out like Germany but with the way the Obama Administration is handling this case I have a hard time believing we, the Homeschooling community, won't be persecuted soon as well.

   It is a fact that with America's poor education system homeschoolers bring more to the table in comparison so why kick out a family who means no harm to America, who could in fact be an asset to our nation? Why are they being treated like criminals here in America? Why deport them and not the millions of illegal immigrants who come to America, some with the intent to join a gang and cause trouble? This is backwards thinking and America is smarter than this. I know it.

Pleasures of Today, Pain of Tomorrow

Instant gratification can bring long term consequences and steal God given blessings from your future. Be careful of what you're giving up to be obtain immediate pleasure.

   Once when Jacob was cooking some stew, Esau came in from the open country, famished. He said to Jacob, "Quick, let me have some of that red stew! I'm famished!" (That is why he was also called Edom.)Jacob replied, "First sell me your birthright." "Look, I am about to die," Esau said. "What good is the birthright to me?"  But Jacob said, "Swear to me first." So he swore an oath to him, selling his birthright to Jacob. Then Jacob gave Esau some bread and some lentil stew. He ate and drank, and then got up and left. So Esau despised his birthright. -Genesis 25:29-34 (NIV)

   Maybe what you're giving up seems little now but everything has it's value and somethings increase in value over time. Have you given up something for immediate pleasure …
