At this very moment, there is a critical need for prayer for the safety of our troops in Afghanistan.  Whether or not you feel we should be there is not the issue.  God is waiting for us to cry out to Him for HIS intervention.  He knows what needs to happen and it needs to happen now!   We must turn to Him.  Immediately!  Lives are literally depending on our response.

Tea-d Off!


Every parking spot was taken…so people walked toward the gathering…crossing a bridge over the Cedar River. 

Across the river, a crowd gathers.

Across the river, a crowd gathers.


People made their statements through a variety of methods. 

Welcome to the Tea Party

Welcome to the Tea Party



People who don't know their history are destined to repeat it.

Having greatly under-estimated, the Tea Party organizers were stunned by the turnout.                                                                                                                                     


Americans in every age bracket peacefully made their point. 

Don't Tread on Me

Don't Tread on Me

 This was in the middle of the day when most people are not available for such an event. 










































Those who don’t know their history are destined to repeat it.  But what will that do to our children?   


This grass roots movement – in all 50 states – has just begun. 


Something to Smile About


Just when we think we can’t take another word of bad news, God puts something in front of us to make us smile.



I love serendipitous moments when I spot something that needs to be captured, and I just happen to have my camera in my purse.  The photo above was taken at a Cracker Barrel in North Carolina.  When I saw that gorgeous grandfather carrying his newborn granddaughter, I couldn’t not ask to take their photo.  I’m so glad they said yes.



It happened again when I watched this grandfather tending his granddaughter in a doctor’s waiting room.  Even I didn’t know if I’d have the nerve to ask if I could take their picture.  But you can see why I couldn’t resist.  Aren’t they precious? 


I hope they make you smile, too.
