This week the Democratic party held their convention in Denver. This is my first time following politics so closely and I was intent on paying attention to all that was sure to come. I followed the speeches and events nightly and thought I was going to be disappointed thinking the Dems were missing key opportunities to reach new and undecided voters. That was until last night. Last night was amazing…just spectactular. Barack Obama gave his acceptance speech as the Democratic Presidential Nominee. More on that later, let me do my recap first.

The first night Michelle Obama spoke and did a great job reintroducing herself to the public and putting the questions concerning her love for country to rest. Sen. Hillary Clinton spoke Tuesday and she came out punching as well, urging her supporters to support Barack Obama because they weren’t involved in this election because of her, it was for America’s well-being. I thought that was an excellent point. On Wednesday, former President Clinton spoke and did great, as expected. In his speech he expressed that critics said that he, too was inexperienced. And we all know how successful his administration was. After all the wonderful speeches, I was ready to hear from Barack Obama.

Barack Obama came out and I thought he was going to be the same Obama I had seen in the past. At first, he was the same Obama, but he got into his speech and I saw a different, tougher Obama. He spelled out the issues and supplied answers to how he would get those issues solved. I saw the passion on his face and heard it in his voice. On the 45th anniversary of the “I Have A Dream” speech, Barack Obama delivered a message of hope and change and a call for a new America.

Who Knew….

Who knew that preparing 2 weeks of bible lessons for children would be so hard. I thought that teaching the kids would be a breeze, but notsomuch, especially when no people such as Joseph or Jonah or even Noah are mentioned. I have also had to deal with the fact that I have had a wide range of ages and have needed to keep them all interested and involved at the same time. Although difficult, the lessons have not only been for the kids, but I feel like I have benefitted tremendously.

The Evangelistic Series continues and tonight I have the topic of salvation planned for the kids. Preparing for this particular lesson was exciting and uplifting for me and I hope they enjoy it, understand it and give their life to Christ.

I’ve been MIA it seems like forever, but it’s only been a couple days. I know, I know… I know I was truly missed. lol.

Well, anyway, here’s my update for the past few days:

  • I now have a new brother b/c my sister got married.
  • I can admit I was wrong, b/c all the people here wasn’t bad at all. I actually enjoyed myself. Maybe it was the occasion or the people or just me, whatever it may have been, I was okay with the family and friends.
  • The house is relatively quiet now; NuNu and Key have their moments.
  • Revival started at my church Saturday night and that first night, the sight of all those kids in my care almost made me faint, seriously. NO JOKE!!!
  • I am now comfortable with the kids and I do think they enjoy learning about Jesus and the Bible songs I teach them.
  • After telling NuNu to put her dress down b/c little girls don’t raise their dresses, she replied with “I’m a woman.” Wow, news to me.
  • And one last thing, the Olympics have been fantastic.

God Said It and That Settles It

Sabbath Scripture

Matthew 18

 21Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times?

   22Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.   

35So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses.
