Mike Huckabee on Fox

Just in case you haven't been following the news, this is the story he is referring to in the video.

Pilot landed in Hudson to avoid 'catastrophic consequences'
Possible Bird Found in Engine of US Airways Jet

Watch the video of Mike Huckabees here

The best quote: He was reponding the question, "Why does God answer some prayers, but not others?"

"A finite mind can never fully comphrehend an infinite God and if God is so understandable that I can fully understand him, then He is not much of a God."
-Mike Huckabee

The above story could have turned out much different and much more tragic, but in the mist of an economic downturn and a preceived loss of hope, God decided to show His power.

Interesting Top News Story

Obama Presidential Inauguration

I have to admit that the speech was a bit inspiring. He certaintly does have a way of instilling hope in people and probably why so many people blindly follow him. The speech did sound a bit like the same retoric he said in his election speeches though. It is truly a historic inauguration. I did not vote for Obama, but I wish him the best of luck. He has a big job in front of him, as would any President. With 2 wars, an economic crisis, and so much mis-trust of the government, he has alot on his plate. I pray that God gives him the wisdom to make the right decisions.

I actually watched the whole speech, but I couldn't post the whole thing.

Why Our Kids Will Never Have a Cell Phone


Some kids are way to spoiled. Steve and I have decided that our kids will not get a cell phone until they have a job and can pay for it themselves. If they don't pay the bill, then they lose the cell phone.
If you feel your child NEEDS a cell phone, then why not get a plan that doesn't allow text messages and only allows calls during certain times and only allows a certain amount of minutes each month.

I remember surviving just fine as a kid without a cell phone.

Wii Fit

Steve got me a Wii Fit for Christmas. Secretly, I think he just wanted to get the Wii so he could play Mario Cart. It's been fun though. At first I was a little leary about it because it is really expensive. I didnt grow up with video games because my parents thought they were a waste of time and a waste of money. I have to admit though the Wii Fit is really fun. We have been trying to get in the habit of playing on it a little bit every night. We are doing alright so far. The Wii Fit gives you a fitness test every day and gives you a Wii Fit Age. My Age the first night was 41. That disturbed me. :0) Last night it was 29 so I feel better now.
I am so sore today though. I didnt realize that I was so out of shape. I think I will find that is a much better way to exercise. One of my biggest obstacles to going to the gym is actually driving there. Once I get home from work, make dinner, and eat, It's usually late and I dont really want to leave the house again.
