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

Image
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 …
