Cell Phones

If you are on your cell phone while you are driving, you are far to busy to be behind the wheel

If you are texting behind the wheel while driving, you are far to busy to be driving

When the law officers start slamming you with tickets, I hope you remember this warning. put down your cell phone and drive your car. You are not the only one on the road.

OUR LIVES MATTER, Put Down Your Cell Phone!!!!!

The Black Prayer

                             The Black Prayer - Author Unknown
                                This is deep, so take your time.

Why Did You Make Me Black Lord
Lord .. Why did you make me black?
Why did you make someone
the world would hold back?...
Black is the color of dirty clothes,
of grimy hands and feet......
Black is the color of darkness,
of tired beaten streets...

Why did you give me thick lips,
a broad nose and kinky hair?
Why did you create someone
who receives the hated stare?

Black is the color of the bruised eye
when someone gets hurt...
Black is the color of darkness,
black is the color of dirt.

Why is my bone structure so thick,
my hips and cheeks so high?
Why are my eyes brown,
and not the color of the sky?

Why do people think I'm useless?
How come I feel so used?
Why do people see my skin
and think I should be abused?
Lord, I just don't understand...
What is it about my skin?
Why is it some people want to hate me
and not know the person within?

Black is what people are "Labeled"
when others want to keep them away...
Black is the color of shadows cast...
Black is the end of the day.

Lord you know my own people mistreat me,
and you know this just ain't right...
They don't like my hair, they don't like my
skin, as they say I'm too dark or too light!

Lord, don't you think
it's time to make a change?
Why don't you redo creation
and make everyone the same?

God's Reply:

Why did I make you black? Why did I make you black?

I made you in the color of coal
from which beautiful diamonds are formed...
I made you in the color of oil,
the black gold which keeps people warm.

Your color is the same as the rich dark soil
that grows the food you need...
Your color is the same as the black stallion and
panther, Oh what majestic creatures indeed!

All colors of the heavenly rainbow
can be found throughout every nation...
When all these colors are blended,
you become my greatest creation!

Your hair is the texture of lamb's wool,
such a beautiful creature is he...
I am the shepherd who watches them,
I will ALWAYS watch over thee!

You are the color of the midnight sky,
I put star glitter in your eyes...
There's a beautiful smile hidden behind your pain...
That's why your cheeks are so high!

You are the color of dark clouds
from the hurricanes I create in September...
I made your lips so full and thick,
so when you kiss...they will remember!

Your stature is strong,
your bone structure thick to withstand the
burden of time...
The reflection you see in the mirror,
that image that looks back, that is MINE!

So get off your knees,
look in the mirror and tell me what you see?
I didn't make you in the image of darkness...
I made you in the image of ME!

June 2

Sometimes it is better to remove things from your
 "to do" list rather than adding to it.

Lord, give me the courage to say no to the things
that cause me to feel overwhelmed.

Morning Laugh

;Your morning laugh;

A blonde is terribly overweight, so her doctor put her on a diet. "I want you to eat regularly for two days, then skip a day, and repeat this procedure for two weeks. The next time I see you, you'll have lost at least five pounds."

When the blonde returned, she shocked the doctor by losing nearly 20 pounds.
"Why, that's amazing!" the doctor said, "Did you follow my instructions?" 
The blonde nodded... "I'll tell you though, I thought I was going to drop 
dead that third day." 

"From hunger, you mean?", asked the doctor."
"No, from skipping."

PRAY for those going through a troubled marriage

                    "PRAY" for those going through a troubled marriage
                                       (9 points to ponder)

1. Marriage is a commitment you made not only to each other but unto God.

2. Marriage is a lifetime commitment.

3. Marriage takes a lot of work 24/7, but well worth the effort

4. Marriage is a wonderful union between a man and a woman, the two of you are no longer two, but one flesh. Genesis 2:24

5. Marriage is a union that grows into a work of art when you both put in the time and effort

6. Stop looking at the faults of your partner and start looking at your own faults, that's your part to work on and change,

7. PRAY for your marriage, your partner, your family, ask God what areas "YOU" need to work on in order to have a harmonious marriage

8. ALL MARRIAGES have problems, it's how you work out your problems that makes your marriage stronger

9. Don't throw in the towel and walk away, "YOU" have work to do, first things first, get down on your knees and begin to pray

Harrison Arkansas

Whats up in Harrison Arkansas?

Harrison is filled with Banks, Pizza Places, & Thrift Stores.

Yep we just got the Good Will here in Harrison and the parking lot is full of lookie lou's. how fast they have forgotten all the other thrift stores that have carried for them through the years and need their support. NO I don't have anything against the Good Will, we just don't need another thrift store here when we already have more then enough

Banks, we have 2 new ones being built here in Harrison. ...Someone here must have money in order to support yet another 2 new banks. lets see, corner stone & stone bank??? why... just how many banks does Harrison need anyhow, I think we have 2 & 3 of the same name banks from the north end to town to the south end of town, now the corner banks want some action??? HUMMMN

Pizza, yes pizza's good, but I think the people in Harrison must not know how to cook, because were carrying alot of pizza joints...
 I think Harrison would fair better to create home-economics in school and teach the kids how to cook and care for their homes and family again. Having babies and raising them on fast food, sugared foods and junk food isn't the way to do it, and they wonder why they are always brook

I thought when they voted Harrison to be a wet county that we'd be over-run with liquor stores... NO in fact we're not, they must have a lid on the liquor store that are allowed here, a good thing I'm thinking..

yep, this is my blog where I can express my likes and dis-likes.. Hope you don't mind my ranting every now and then

Blessings upon you all

Psalm 91

              Psalm 91 King James Version (KJV)

91 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

2 I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.

3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.

4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.

5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;

6 Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.

7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.

8 Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.

9 Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;

10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.

11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.

12 They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.

13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.

14 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.

15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.

16 With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.

King James Version (KJV)
