this i know for sure

I feel that the world at large is aswirl in uncertainty. There are so many unknowns in the U.S. economy and in world affairs. The rhetoric from the media serves only to futher confuse and befuddle the average American. I do not believe in the ostridge approach. To put your head in the sand and wait for calmer seas is foolish. I think we need to take active steps to secure our way of living. This I know for sure.


Here's a few other things I know for sure:


What you put out in the world will come back to you.

You can't have everything all of the time, but you can have somethings some of the time.

The best thing you can do for your children is to love and honor your spouse.

Belief in God is not insurance against pain, but a resource in the event of pain.

Your children won't remember how clean the house was on Christmas morning, only how happy their mother was.

The more you say, the more your ignorance becomes apparent.



I'm still working on that last one.


Don't forget to put your name in for the hair pins and curly bows from yesterday's post. I'll announce the winners tomorrow morning.
