Cyber Shopping?

Tomorrow is Cyber-Monday. I have already decided on a few things to buy. I have to admit online shopping is my favorite way to shop. Lazy or too busy? Both.

However, my husband and I just made an emergency run to Target for a great deal. Everywhere I looked online didn't compare with the selection or the price. I can't disclose what we bought because "someone" might read this blog.

Anyway, I was just browsing through Usually, their electric book, the Kindle, pops right up with an offer to purchase. It didn't pop up. So just snooping I looked it up. It's completely sold out with a waiting list and a note it will not be avaiable until after Christmas. Hmmmm. . .a very popular item. I have heard great things about it, but am doubtful I could make the switch from paper books to electronic books. I am curious to know if any of you have a Kindle and what your opinion is?

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts. Have a great Cyber-Monday!

My Music Award to Joelle

My husband and I watched the Country Music Awards on Wednesday night. I am definately happy that Carrie Underwood won an award. She's beautiful and so was her song, "Just a Dream." She received a standing ovation.

Now I have my own standing ovation for Joelle. Joelle wrote a song in response to my Bible study, Perplexing Proverbs. Hop on over to my website and listen to it. If you would like to contact Joelle she can be contacted at: She's one in a million and I am on my feet clapping for her. THANKS, Joelle!

Now here's my go at a country western lyric.
My dog ran away down the road. Then I cried tears as big as a toad.

OK, OK, I'll keep my day job and just write books and devotions.

Our Future

At this time last week many of us were standing in a line to vote for various leaders of our nation and communities. We asked ourselves, "What is our future?"

Every generation asks that question. My father, a Marine, fought in World War II. He enlisted at the age of 17. He fought overseas for an uncertain future--but believed he could make a difference. His love for the United States never wavered. He would salute whenever our flag passed by. He was a veteran--he loved his country

What is our future? There is a simple answer to that question. Our future is our past--our veterans.

And our future is our children. Let's commit to teach them to value our United State's history and to value the freedom we have been given. Let's instill in our children--our future--the love of democracy.
