Vote and Vote Early

I was sitting in the dreaded Teacher's lounge eating lunch with some unique and wonderful women. We were talking politics and I announce that it doesn't matter if the Democrat is purple or pink, I'm a Republican. That was wrong and I wish I could go back and say instead, "I'm a Christian. I'm not voting for any party that does not coiincide with my Christian beliefs." My sister says that the word Christian does not hold the best connotation these days and I should say I want to vote with the Bible. What does the Bible say about the economy? I know I should trust the Lord with all my heart, not store my treasures here on earth, and God takes care of the sparrow and dresses the lillies of the field. I'm not sure how that equates to a vote on either side of party lines, but I'm not ashamed of my siding with God and the Bible. There is a Baptist minister running for president, but I'm not sure his chances are all that great, so I'll just stick with one of the two big guys. Early voting begins Monday, and I will SO be at the poles. Not only because I hate the rushed feelings on the actual last chance voting day, but I REALLY want to GET THIS OVER WITH.

and I thought partial-birth abortion was bad. now we have induced labor abortion. babies taken pre-maturely and allowed to die. God please reveal Your true self to Obama. Give his wife dreams of those babies that he has voted legislation to kill. God, I pray for justice to be done against those who allow abortion to take place legally.

Only Braum's Gives You So Much More

HEB was out of milk for a while due to Hurricane Ike, so I had only bought a couple half- gallons that were still available. That ran out several days ago, so I decided to buy a gallon at Braum's. Both my sisters had mentioned Braum's milk didn't have some hormone that others had and to quote one sister, "They know their own cows." Makes sense to me and I was delighted at the other goodies I could get there. I bought bananas, carrots, apples and yogurt. I threw caution to the wind and even bought a gallon of Braum's Iced Tea. I stopped myself from buying some ice-cream because that would have made just too much sense. Now that "the recession that noone wants to admit to" has hit us middle classers in the grocery department, I didn't see much of a price difference, so I'll be back again. Another highlight was the paper bags at the checkout. The smell and crinkly sound of which takes me back to childhood. I have bought into the whole go green thing at HEB and have purchased 4 of their re-usable cloth bags. They were only a buck each and I feel pretty cool carrying them. Also, the handles don't pinch your hands like the plastic ones can.
