Politics Defined

Politics is derived from two words:
poly, meaning many,
and tics, meaning small blood-sucking insects.

Check out this blog written by a cool young lady named Julie. She’s a 23-year-old blind dwarf who sings and speaks to audiences about overcoming handicaps.

Her blog is entitled, Little, Blind, and One of a Kind. You can also visit her website,

Here’s a sampling of her Q&A page on her blog:

Q. How do you stay so positive and upbeat when you have so many hard challenges to deal with?
A. I have learned that my joy does not have anything to do with the struggles I deal with. If my happiness depended on my life being free of tough circumstances, I would never be content. You can’t control everything that happens in your life, but you can control your attitude, and your response to what happens to you.

Next time you want to complain because you can’t deal with the stuff coming your way…just remember Julie. She's an awesome example of contentment in Christ.

Oh, you might also enjoy her CD. She and her hero Karen (her mother) will bless you in song.


Happy happy joy joy

A new year.

New beginnings.


Fresh start.

Somehow the new year always feels like the time to make special promises, changes in behavior, drop bad habits, pick up good ones, and to just try harder.

The decision to make changes is easy. Following through is hard.

Psalm 25 gives the recipe for making the right changes, and how to do it, how to stick with it.

1. Trust God
2. Wait on His direction (he won't hide his will from you)
3. Be sure your sins are dealt with
4. Obey his instructions
5. Fear God
6. Keep your eyes on the Lord
7. Let him know your heart, your needs
8. Live in integrity and uprightness

Oh, this is just a quicky glimpse at this awesome Psalm. Read it in many versions to get a wider perspective of its meaning.

It's a sure way to get going in 2008 and to actually make decisions that are right and ones that will make an impact on you, your loved ones, and even the world.

Happy new year.
