It's almost November!

Wow I can't believe it's almost November! The weeks sure are flying by fast.

We had a nice weekend. We went and saw my cousin play in her volleyball tournaments on Saturday but sadly she got hurt during one of the Friday night games so she only played for 10 minutes the first game and had to sit out the rest of the time. She felt really bad as all the family was there to see her play but we still enjoyed seeing her, rooting her team on and being together as a family.

Sunday we went out to eat with my parents and grandparents...then back to my parents to spend time with my grandparents. It was nice to see them and they enjoyed seeing Ethan and playing with him. I had a bad sinus headache yesterday and was feeling a little nausea at times so we left a little early so I could get home and take some tylenol and lay on the couch. I am feeling so much better today, thank you Jesus!

You know, I am really getting annoyed with this whole politics thing. I've never really been in to politics but it bothers me how people talk and treat Obama....or "Bahama" as my Grandma likes to call him, lol. Regardless of your opinion on abortion, gay marriages, etc. people don't seem to realize that Jesus loves him just as much as he loves us. I'm sick of all the judgemental garbage that goes on and people (Christians) not seeing the big picture. It's pointless and ungodly to debate and it bothers me. a lot. All the Christians bash Obama but I don't hear all the McCain supporters bringing up how McCain is divorced and married a younger lady do I? The point is, we are not called to judge others! Sure, go ahead and vote for who you want and that's fine....but stop judging people. And another thing that really burns me up inside....gay marriages. Sure, it's not right and it's not biblical and it's not the way God intended it to be but guess what....neither is Pornography, or a marital affair.....to me it is NO different than gay marriage. They are all sexual sins and I believe God sees them equally, I really do. For people to go around judging and acting like gay marriage is the worst sin on earth when they are secretly watching pornography when their spouse goes to bed or sneaking around on their spouse.....man! Wake up Christians!!!! It's only the love of Jesus that changes people....and maybe if Christians would start showing love to "gays" then they would see the love of Christ, get saved and not want to be gay....or not want to have an abortion. Sorry....I just really think Christians (of course not all) are really not getting it and what we are called to do.....you're not going to reach the lost by judging them. How about we stop trusting in men, including McCain and start trusting in GOD! Ok, I'm done. *Sigh*

On another note, this is Ethan's first Halloween and he is going to be a little skunk. So cute! Can't wait to get him all dressed up in his costume...at least for a few minutes to get some pictures and get him some candy. We are going over my parents house as we do every year for Halloween, it will be fun.

Alright, that's all for now.

WOW girl you go on with your bad self........ I agree with you. Have I done my share of Obama bashing? Sure.. I have also done it to McCain too sooo.... I think one thing to is that people lose respect for the president too, if it is someone that they didnt vote in. No matter who holds that positions needs to have 100% of our respect and prayer. If there is no respect then there is rebellion and nothing good comes from rebellion. So Amen to you and These two men were created by God whether people want to believe that or not.

Yeah....I'm not saying I support Obama and things he stands for but I still feel as Christians the negative, judgemental, lack of love talk that goes around during this time is wrong. A bad testimony and not the way Jesus would act!

I just want to say AMEN a thousand times to what Keri has posted. The problem is there is a lack of Gods heart..Gods compassion. Their would be no judgement at all if we had Gods heart...instead just tears and burdens for the lost..gays..liesbens...druggies...or whatever. We are all sinners and we are no different then anyone else...whatever the sin is. We all need God and we are all such a mess without him.HIM.
