Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and Attorney General Jerry Brown both stated that a future legislature could abolish marriage and yank marriage rights from a married husband and wife.
It was revealed today that Attorney General Jerry Brown [AG Jerry Brown's 8/17 brief] and Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger [Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's 8/17 brief] have stated that the terms “marry” and “marriage” have no significance in the state’s constitution and can therefore be changed.
**Update......its done! Here is the finished product:
"All too often, any kind of preaching about clothing has become an oddity, and embarrassment, or a type of 'legalism'. The resistance of the rock & roll culture to such preaching is so pervasive that many pastors have decided to ignore the matter of dress, thus the battle is lost simply because the ground is abandoned.
Yet if ever there were a time when preachers need to warn their people about clothing issues, it is today. Modern society is drenched with indecency. A Vogue fashion show would make ancient Corinth blush. Standards of morality are not to be left to the pew. Surely it is the obligation of the preacher to set forth these things. Has God not spoken on this issue? We know that holiness is a matter of the heart, but is it not a matter of the body, as well? What man has ever lusted after a woman's heart? How, then, can we ignore these parts of Scripture and refuse to preach them boldly and uncompromisingly? That is what the New Evangelical does. There are some things he will not preach, and separation is one of them. But the Bible speaks as much about moral separation as it does ecclesiastical separation. The faithful Bible believing preacher cannot ignore either.
Those who are crying 'legalism' today are hypocrites in this matter. They decry the old-time preacher for the lines he draws, but they, too, draw lines for clothing. Will they allow a woman to teach Sunday School class in a bikini? No, and there are other types of attire they do not allow. They draw lines; they have some sort of standards. And if it is right to draw a line in clothing, it is wise to draw the line after the Bible's principles rather than the world's.
Let's make a clear difference between ourselves and the world. Let's not be afraid of being a 'peculiar people, zealous of good works'. Let's stand in the old paths. Those who are giving up high, plain standards of holiness in dress and moving closer and closer to the fashions of the world should remember that the world is moving farther and farther from God's word."
So no matter how hot the "heat" of your battle is.....God can cool it down and you can learn from it when its all said and done. Isn't it funny how when our HUGE battle is over that it looks so small?
In the fourth year, again, there was nothing from the bamboo seed. But I would not quit.
A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband: but she that maketh ashamed is as rottenness in his bones.
The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.
Set a watch, O LORD, before my mouth; keep the door of my lips.
Mix dry ingredients together. Add milk, eggs and oil and stir until just blended. Bake on a medium hot to hot griddle until bubbles appear and the pancakes are nice and golden brown.

I have been conducting an INTENSE study on gossip and that it entails for months now. I have been doing this because the tongue (especially for women) is a part of my body I wish to control more of. Here is an article about the tongue that I posted a while back that would do much good to read again. I have been reading just about everything I can get my hands on about gossip. I'm still reading lol......but it is yielding wonderful things in my life as understanding gossip and all that it entails brings forth knowledge to prevent it in my life.
I've been having a lot of time alone lately and it has allowed me to study more and ask my husband questions about things I don't understand (which the Bible instructs wives to do!). I realized in my time alone, how many idle words I had spoken when in conversation with others......to just fill the space of small talk. Then when I next had interaction with someone after spending time praying a guard about my tongue.....I have found that I'm more cautious of my words and my ears! It has yielded the effect I had hoped for.....carefulness.
Here is a great quote from Charles Spurgeon on the topic:
Don’t be the Devil’s bellows any longer to blow up the fires of strife. Leave off setting people by the ears. If you do not cut off a bit of your tongues, at least season them with the salt of grace. Praise God more and blame neighbors less. Any goose can cackle; any fly can find out a sore place; any empty barrel can give forth sound; any brier can tear a man’s flesh. No flies will go down your throat if you keep your mouth shut and no evil speaking will come up. Think much, but say little; be quick at work and slow at talk; and above all, ask the great Lord to set a watch over your lips.This is what I did.......I asked the Lord to set a watch upon my lips and a guard on my tongue. It had occurred to me some months ago, that I wasn't taking much consideration for my words. Words can do a great deal of damage to others and they can also do a great deal of good.
However, I had not been praying over my conversations with others and found myself in a distressed state. I had let others tell me things about others......gossip! I had thought to myself, well I can't correct them I'm not their pastor....BUT when it causes me to sin by mere listening (see this article) then I must withdraw myself from the conversation because I will not be a partaker in another person's sin! (1 Timothy 5:22)
Also, being around those type of people who have nothing better to do than talk about others and how bad they are......I came to the realization that their evil ways were rubbing off on me because I began to look at others in disdain! You just can't have fellowship with those that continue in sin, especially gossip. Once you withdraw yourself from their company, you will soon find that YOU will be the topic they choose to speak evil about to others. The tongue is EVIL.
Do you have complete control of your tongue?? I will be the first to say that I know I did not and I have taken steps to ensure a guard about my tongue.
If the picture is too small for you to read, here are the verses:
4 Behold also the ships, which though they be so great, and are driven of fierce winds, yet are they turned about with a very small helm, whithersoever the governor listeth.
5 Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth!
6 And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell.
Thanks Mom and Dad for sticking together in sickness and in health, for richer, for poorer........! You are a rare breed these days and one I hope to become! I remember the words of my dad growing up and it was also written on the license plate on the front of his truck: "The family that prays together, stays together."
But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
For help soaring, the American bald eagle uses thermals. Thermals are currents of hot air and updrafts created by the terrain. Soaring is done with little wing flapping, which helps an eagle to conserve energy. An eagle accomplishes long flights by climbing high in currents of warm air, and then glide down to catch the next currents of warm air, in which the process is repeated.
I also created and made my first salsa, it is GOOD and I put the recipe after this post, just scroll down to the next entry. I used my old salsa jar to put my salsa in:
And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
Those are just some things I have in mind that are coming up. My big project today is the monthly menu for August!
