When Celine Deon begins to sing she takes command of the stage and then she takes command of the heart of those listening.
She was a prodigy child with a passion and great talent to sing and then she was discovered. After years of practicing and polishing the beauty in her voice is magnificent as you must silently listen and watch:
It's difficult to not envy such natural talent. And you must know that it has been coupled with long endless days of work.
But we can thank God that we have the privilege to experience her song and then, if your like me you just pray and wish that somehow God would allow beauty in whatever way is best to come from your own life.
God bless and protect our soldiers defending freedom!
Never give in,
never give in,
never-in nothing, great or small, large or petty -
never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense.
Never yield to force;
never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.
--Sir Winston Churchill
October 9, 1941 Speech given at Harrow School during World War II
Dear Heavenly Father,
Protect all the soldiers fighting against terror.
Do you have enemies? Do you respect Biblical truths? The Bible says to hope and pray the best for your enemies. This is hard. And must be slowly learned through many days if you have an enemy that has done a great evil toward you. You must pray every day that Jesus would help you do this and change your attitude and desire.

People need the Lord is an old song from 20-something years ago that popped into my head this morning. People everywhere need God whether you're Asian, European, Hispanic, African or Caucasion. As an American I know the people in my country desperately need to think on the things of God and trust Him more. Americans have become too materialistic and prideful. God forgive us!

I was listening to the Christian radio broadcast called Family Life Today. It was the second of a two day broadcast in which a man named Ben Stuart was the guest. He is the leader of a huge Bible study that goes on weekly at Texas A & M college. During the interview he told how there is a major problem with mainly men that look at pornography via the internet.
We came home from church in the pouring rain. It was fun walking out to the car. My three sons and I went. We had one umbrella that was starting to get old. Benjamin and I shared, except all truth be told, I did hog it and insisted on holding it. We still all got wet.
Our umbrella is getting old. You know how umbrellas start to get old don't you?

I had the privilege of filling in for a Language Arts teacher today. Beside her desk was a well-worn book. If you see a teacher with a well-worn book you need to get a copy for yourself. It was called Scholastic Book Of Lists by James Buckley, Jr., and Robert Stremme.
Vintage, feminine, conservative, motherly and an old-fashioned symbol of the homemaker. I love all that they represent. When I was a little girl my mom had a pillow case full of aprons and crotched doilies.
A few years back I memorized a couple of Bible verses. I wanted them to come true in our family life so I made them into a prayer spoken often. They were wise, pretty and poetic words found in the book of Proverbs, King James Version.
Here is the Main Objective (a teaching term) for learning this year in our household:
Through wisdom is an house builded;
and by understanding it is established:
And by knowledge shall the chambers be filled with all precious and pleasant riches.
I wonder if Mrs. Happy Housewife wears a pretty apron when she cooks and cleans for her family? She probably does and it probably has been crispily starched (:
The vintage apron thing has been filling my mind tonight. I decided to check out the apron lady's website. And I found a sweet little hidden treasure within its pages! But first let me lead you to her gallery of the prettiest little vintage aprons around!
These songs are old and some may think a little cheesy. I like 'em anyway. They're the band Firefall from the '70's. They have a good melody and positive words. I couldn't find real good videos I mostly just wanted to hear the songs anyway:
