No, No, No

I have kept my mouth shut on the immigration issue…that is until now. With the current push to have the National Anthem, our National Anthem, sung in Spanish as well as English, I have to say “Enough is Enough!!”

Handfuls on Purpose

Tuesday, April 25th, 2006

A pastor at a church I sometimes attend once said during a sermon, “Your life is God’s gift to you…how you live it is your gift to Him”. After pondering this statement for a while, I decided on the theme for how I want to live my life. My life’s creed is “Handfuls on Purpose”.

If you’re wondering where you might have heard that phrase before, try the book of Ruth, chapter 2, verse 16. This is the point at which Boaz, having learned that Ruth has been gleaning in his fields, orders his workers to leave “handfuls on purpose”.

Watch Your Mouth

Imagine that…right there in Illinois is the Cuss Control Academy. No, no, this is for real. I wonder if they really make a living at this.
