The Ten Commandments debate fires me up. I can't figure out how some people can turn the most basic of human decency into a humans rights issue.
Does that mean if you don't believe in the Bible you don't believe in the other commandments? So you can steal, murder, commit adultery? Give me a break. This is, as my mom has told me, "gag on a gnat and choke on  a camel."

A local school district has been battling this issue for the last few months. A complaint was made about the commandants being displayed int he schools.They were taken down, and then put back up in the next few days by the school board. Then the news came out they were being sued by the ACLU and th Freedom From Religion Foundation. 
Giles county is like most counties in our area, and across the country. They decided, after review, that they couldn't financially  afford the lawsuits involved if the case went to court, and ordered the removal of the commandments. 
 Giles County balked amid cost

It's hard for me to believe that  large groups like this would target a small county like Giles. Why??? I have an idea, they are a neighboring county to a large state university,which means that the population has a large ethinic group. 
I try my best to be tolerant, and understanding, and God like. And I pray for wisdom to face the future.

Been almost 2 months since my last post. I've thought about how I enjoyed blogging, and how to get myself back to it.
So what did I come up with?
Not much, beyond the idea that I'd like to keep doing it. I started with the intention of promoting my Etsy shop, but I find that I want to do something else.
I don't fit well with twitter,  it's too fast for me.
Ditto facebook, I like it more than twitter but it still seems to move faster than I want to.
I need to think about what I want to say, not the first thing that comes into my mind when I read a post. Sometimes my first thought is the best thing, and sometimes it isn't. Occasionally it would get me into some really deep hot water, with little hope of extracting myself.
Great example. It just took me a good ten minutes to find a scripture that came to mind during that last sentence;
      "He who guards his mouth and his tongue keeps himself from troubles."
                                                                                           Proverbs 21:23
My challenge for the last several months has been to tame my tongue, learning that what I want to say is not necessarily the best thing to say. Sometimes saying nothing is the best thing.
But I feel the need to say something, even if no one else wants to hear it.  
And I really like the blogging, and I think I want to keep it up.With the blog  I can take the time to tame my thoughts, my words, and at times add from another place to make my ideas and feelings clearer.
