Well, here I am again. Two days in a row of being on the internet. Wow!!! That is amazing. Now that I have a little more time, I must update everyone. I got here on Friday night and the city is beautiful. The house that I am staying in is in the historic part of the city. In the center. I am right across the street from a Baskin Robins!!! I know, weird right? My family has a mom, dad, grandma, son and the cousin of the son is here right now. The family and my brother´s (the families really adopt you here) friends are nice.

This is something that, I feel, will be valuable to you and help you think through the issue yourself as you look at this very polarizing national discussion. Next week we’ll return to our regular posting schedule. In light of the fact that I value your readership, I would like to say I’m sorry for the sudden, albeit temporary, change. Thanks for reading!! I appreciate you all.
Here’s the point of it all kids…………..You ready?…………..God loves you!!! “Wow, big surprise.”(sarcasm added) That is probably what most of you are thinking. But that is it. We all think we know it but we don’t. Our actions disprove what we say we believe. Our actions show that we are always wanting attention.
