Friday Jumbles

--I saw two shocking sights in traffic this past week. One was a nun dressed in full habit and the other was a bearded man smoking two cigarettes at the same time. They were not together. Even as I write this, it sounds like I live at the circus...

--I am pretty sure I am suffering some short-term memory loss. I keep forgetting that we burned some frozen pizzas beyond recognition recently (yeah, I'm thinking of writing a cookbook). I forget, that is, until the oven is preheating again and the noxious smell of charred pizza cheese wafts out from the bottom of my badly neglected oven. Why can't I remember this??

--I'm sorry, what was I saying?

--Kem Meyer (communications director @ Granger Community Church) posted this video on her blog this past Monday....really good. If you think you might be the least bit spoiled or ungrateful, check it out.

--You have to question your parenting skills, as I did this week, when one of your sons begins a story with, "I remember the first time I licked a battery..." Who does that more than once???

--Fav quote of the week: "Always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them so much." -Oscar Wilde

--I read this week that the Arkansas Senate will be voting soon on a bill that would allow churches to decide if their congregants can bring weapons to church with them. A Little Rock pastor stated that he " believes it would disturb the sanctity and tranquility of church.” You think? Personally, I feel that nothing brings the peace that passes all understanding like a deacon packing an uzi.

--And finally, here is a link to a fun page I found. This will come in handy if you have elementary school age children or if you are feeling a little full of yourself and need to be brought down a notch. I don't like to brag, but I did make an 86%. I may not be smarter than a fifth grader but I could totally kick some butt in a kindergarten!

I found that state page last week and made Clayton do it to see if i could beat him! We are a little competitive, haha. I got an 84 the first time then an 86 the second. I had NO idea where Iowa was?? I put it waaaay out west somewhere!

That the Arkansas Senate is voting on that is ridiculous, and shows ether a lack of understanding of (Federal) Constitutional law or a disregard for said law. The second amendment clearly states that we have the right to bear arms. When it comes to private property, such as a church, it is the choice of the property owner (in this case probably the board, er, elders) to decide if they should allow weapons on the property or not. The Arkansas Senate has no authority to vote to allow churches to let weapons on property, because those churches already have that right.
