Oh Well....

Well, I hear that Auburn lost to Alabama 29 to 13.

After years of being systematically "conditioned" to believe that I was bad luck, I only dared to watch a few minutes of the game.

This amazing play was the only one that I saw.

Guess that I should have watched more of the game.
Oh well, there is always next year.
Oh, I almost forgot! I met a guy whom I will call "John" We had a great blind date last night. Can't wait to get to know him better!

"Lord, Please Remove Those Who Have No Business In My Life..."

In my morning prayers, as I send up prayers for protection over my children and other family, I always ask the Lord to remove those from my life who have "no business" in my life or the life of my family. I implore Him to remove those "who seek to use us and abuse us."  I  feel like this simple request has spared me from a great deal of heartache.

Today, in the final sermon of his "Blessed Life" series, our pastor shared an idea that I never thought of before, but one that makes a lot of sense.

"Those who are focused on PEOPLE, will use Money to help other People. But those who are focused on MONEY will use People to get more Money"

This struck me: I had lived this very truth.
For the better part of two decades, I was used for my resources.

Now I know the Lord won't let that happen again.

Delta Dawn

I saw this today on Facebook and had to share it. Though my brother may not remember, this was once his favorite song. Who am I kidding, it was my favorite too.

Recorded by Tanya Tucker when she was only 13, after hearing Bette Midler sing it on The Tonite Show.  The rest is music history.

I was surprised to see that she was still singing, although not completely. Most of the good, truly talented entertainers still do. Kinda hard to believe she is 56.

Here is Miss Tanya Tucker singing the song that put her on the charts

Let's Pick A Time and Stick With It!

Well,  it sound like  Sen. Rusty Glover has hit a snag in his bid to keep Alabama one consistent time. I'm thinking that he hasn't thought this through. Why not just keep  THIS time all year long?  It accomplishes the same goal.
