What a Great Quote!
Mood: not sure
"Sometimes I would like to ask God why He allows poverty, suffering and injustice when He could do something about it." ~ "Well, why don't you ask Him?" ~ "Because I'm afraid He would ask me the same question." ~ Anonymous

Summer Fun and Educational Too! (And it's an exclusive offer that not many are privy to!)
Topic: Homeschool Helps
I know that summer usually means the kids spend a lot of time outside. And well they should! My summer memories are of some of the best times I've ever had in my life.
Sometimes, however, the outside just isn't possible. There are rainy days even in the summer, and there are always some days, albeit rare, when the kids just don't feel like going out. For those days, have I got a deal for you!
Do you remember the review I did for Mathscore some months ago? Here's the link to it just in case. Anyway, the great people at Mathscore are experimenting with something new - a $5.95/month for the first child promotion! Usually they charge $14.95 a month, so this is almost 1/3 their normal fee!
The even neater (is that a word?) thing is that they have only selected certain homeschool product blog reviewers to promote this offer with and yours truly was one of them. You won't find this offer on their website, you can only access it by using this special link - http://www.mathscore.com/home/signUp.php?ccode=blog595
As far as I know, this offer will even keep going after summer is over, but just in case, you'd better not wait to take advantage! Have a great summer!

Men's Monday Meme - I've Had My Christian Dander Ruffled this Week!
Mood: don't ask
Topic: Men's Monday Meme
I guess it comes from working with folks that live in low income housing areas. I know that many of them are suffering from their own mistakes, but where does the punishment end? Nothing gets me riled up more than folks that are holier than thou. I get so tired of people who have the attitude of "We don't want those people in our church!" or "Have you heard what she did? This is her fourth child in five years and she's not even..." I know that pastors and religious leaders cannot compromise the Bible. Right is right and wrong is wrong. What makes me angry is that they'll accept some folks but shun others when we are all sinners. Heaven help the
Notice it says nothing about homosexuality or anything of the sort here. Now, don't get me wrong, I think that those things are abhorrent, but in God's eyes so are all sins! God hates sin and speaks out about all sin in the Bible. It's society that has put values on sins and not God. We either need to minister to ALL sinners or throw all of us out of churches because we are ALL sinners. John 13:34&35 says this:
34"A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. 35By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another."
It doesn't say we should only love those who haven't commited some major sin that is way up on the abhorrent sin list according to men. Those verses look to me to include everyone!
Can you tell that I've had my dander raised a couple times this week? Okay! Let me finally get to the topic of the week:
What do you think about my above rant? Am I being to harsh on churches and Christians? Are there certain folks that should not be allowed into a church because of their sinful behavior?
I expect that there are some folks that are non-church goers or have been turned off by this exact behavior that will have one opinion and then there may be church goers that will have another. I want to hear them all. I want a lively discussion! What do you all think?
Here are the rules:
