Well, Mr. Stern, you are wrong, and that is a rather stupid headline. Forest Gump’s momma comes to mind. Read the rest of this entry »
Jesus loves the little children.
All the children of the world.
Red and yellow, black, and white.
They are precious in His site.

Update, 21 May 2013, as of this afternoon, the power is fully restored, and our water is back to normal. Pressure coming up to normal. No big deal for a lot of us, but it was problematic at businesses and the schools in SE OKC that didn’t close today.
Also, much thanks to OKC personnel and OG&E personnel who got things put back to right!
The City of Oklahoma City is reporting the power to the Lake Draper city water supply (for southeast Oklahoma City) is out. The tornado got too many lines and towers. OG&E is restoring. In the mean time, it is running on emergency generators. Everything is working. Our water is safe. But pumps are running on backup. Water pressure is very low. Minimize use. Mostly, ensure sprinklers are off. Turn off the timers and supply to the yard sprinklers.
Again the water is safe, but some residents don’t have enough pressure for any use. So, make sure you use as little as possible.
“There has been misinformation regarding the City’s drinking water supply. It IS safe to drink. The Draper Water Treatment Plant did lose power and we did ask residents in SE OKC limit water usage. The water supply was never compromised and the water has always been safe to drink.” The City of Oklahoma City.

Not only is this straight talk to young people, it shows clearly why home schooling is important, why we need an individualized approach, one only a parent can give. We also need to work from early on.

“Now we command you, brothers, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you keep away from any brother who is walking in idleness and not in accord with the tradition that you received from us. For you yourselves know how you ought to imitate us, because we were not idle when we were with you, nor did we eat anyone’s bread without paying for it, but with toil and labor we worked night and day, that we might not be a burden to any of you. It was not because we do not have that right, but to give you in ourselves an example to imitate. 10For even when we were with you, we would give you this command: If anyone is not willing to work, let him not eat. For we hear that some among you walk in idleness, not busy at work, but busybodies. Now such persons we command and encourage in the Lord Jesus Christ to do their work quietly and to earn their own living.” Paul

Windmills killed over half a million birds and nearly a million bats in 2012. Where will it end?
AP has distributed a story carried by many news outlets, including Fox, The Guardian, etc. I like the variety of headlines. Some hardly admit the point while others all but accuse the President of killing eagles and fighting oil production.
The link to the journal should work, but it is available after purchase only, and I didn’t register to find out how much it is. Read the rest of this entry »
