Bang Bang POW!

Bullet jewelry aint something new…it has been around since folks have been shooting off guns.  The symbolism of the  bullet shell is great power and for many a purdy accessory.  The bullet necklace is made from a spent shell casing, there is no actual bullet.

Curry County Love is a shop on Etsy that makes incredible bullet jewelery.  Courtney Thompson is the designer behind Curry County Love.  She specializes in necklaces, earrings, and custom pieces.  Very cute and juvenile and absolutely perfect for that redneck heart.  Also a great way to honor someone special in the military. A symbol of freedom and sacrifice.

Here is my daughter modeling the beautiful charm bullet necklace:

How do you share the events of 9/11 with a five year old???

After school my five year old son asked, “why is everyone talking about 9/11 mom, isn’t it just another day?”  His K teacher briefly mentioned that 13 years ago today our country was attacked, and that was that.  Well, I started to share with him the tragedy as nicely as I could (he is 5.)  I explained to him  that there are evil people in this world that like to hurt people and want to take away our freedoms.  We were attacked on 9/11 in an act of terror and evil people took over planes.  These evil people flew the planes into two tall buildings called the twin towers and killed thousands of people.  I told him there was another plane that was headed for the Pentagon and how the passengers on that plane were so brave and stood up to the hijackers and caused the plane to crash in a field.  I explained to him that many innocent and heroic people died that day.  There were fire fighters, police officers, and every day people that will always be remembered in our hearts.

We need to teach our children of the terrors in the world and help them to be prepared.  We can not let our history be forgotten and we need to continue to fight for our freedoms.

How Should Christians Vote a book review

Who is ready for a change in the white-house? Honestly, it is time for Christians to take a stand and fight back against the socialist that has infected our country. We need to put God back in the white house and restore the damage that Obama has caused with his carelessness and disrespect of what America is really about. He has left our country in shambles and vulnerable to more terrorist attacks and alien invasions along our borders. We were once a strong country, stood out among the rest and we can be that proud country once again. It is very simple…Christians need to stop hiding and get out and do something about it. Obama has no respect for God, Our Soldiers, Our Constitution, or America.
Follow this link to read an unedited interview that was conducted by Cathleen Falsani, the religion reporter for the respected Chicago Sun-Times newspaper and you just might be surprised with what Obama has to say about his stand on religion…or maybe not.

While preparing for the next election we as Christians need to remember that we are not to vote as Republicans or Democrats. We need to vote as Godly men and women and cast our vote based on God’s values. It’s not just WWJD…it is HWJV? (How Would Jesus Vote) So on my venture to learn how God want’s me to vote in the next election I picked up a copy of “How Should Christians Vote,” By Tony Evans, courtesy of Moody Publishing. For those of you that do not know who Tony Evans is…he is a pastor at Cliff Bible Fellowship in Dallas. He is the author of many books, speaks at churches and other events all over the country, and is heard on 500 radio stations each day.

In “How Should Christians Vote,” Tony Evans teaches on how Christians can apply biblical principles when considering who to vote for. Evans emphasizes that God is neither Republican or Democrat and that neither party is good or bad. Each party holds policies that value God’s word and each party has some policies that do not. We need to listen to what the candidates have to say, where they stand, and most importantly who they represent. We can not vote on color or political party. And do not vote to make history! Cast your vote to bring glory to God. Tony Evans pulls much scripture that we can use to guide us with our political choice. We learn how the government was formed and what our founding fathers had in mind for all Americans. Most importantly we are reminded that government was created by God, not man. When our leaders display Godly values they are good and our country is good. When our leaders display values that are not honoring to God they are evil and our country suffers.
Obama is a prime example of a president that is dishonoring to God and the outcome is…well just take a look around ya….

Take a stand for your Christian Values and remember to vote God’s way…It is the only way to save this great nation we call home.
On voting day ask yourself, HWJV?
