I am happily married to an amazing military man who spent 9 years enlisted and is now an Officer in the US Army. We have two amazing boys who are not so little any more! They still infuse every moment of every day with creativity and energy, and make my life an adventure.  I was educated at home, and am now teaching our children - second generation homeschoolers! I try every day to become more like Jesus Christ, and to love like HE does. If you want you can try and catch me at bethylovesandy@yahoo.com

My Blog Title Verse

"For the Lord gives wisdom. From His mouth come knowledge and understanding." Proverbs 2:6 NKJV 
The Message translation puts it this way "God gives out Wisdom free, is plainspoken in Knowledge and Understanding."

Verse of the day

Politics

I just wanted to point out the quotes of the week. Those sum up why, although I love a democratic society, and the freedom of speech, I must say that over all, I hate an election year. When my time comes, and it is my turn to run for election, I am asking you all to hold me accountable. I will run a clean election. I will not bash the person I am running against. I think that surely it is possible to win by pointing out the good things about yourself, the things you are strong in, rather than by bashing your opponent. Surely?!? 

***Since the week is now over and I am removing the quotes, I thought I should add them here instead***

"Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless." Mother Theresa

"Use soft words and hard arguments" English Proverb

"If you can't say something nice, don't say nothing at all" Thumper, from Bambi

"Watch the way you talk. Let nothing foul or dirty come out of your mouth. Say ONLY what helps, each word a gift." Eph. 4:29
(The Message)
