Columbine Message

I received an email today from a friends and I thought I would pass it along to you all ... It says it all! Take a minute to read ... it's quick and to the point and just touched my heart.

Guess our national leaders didn't expect this, hmm? On Thursday, Darrell Scott, the father of Rachel Scott, a victim of the Columbine High School shootings in Littleton , Colorado , was invited to address the House Judiciary Committee's subcommittee. What he said to our national leaders during this special session of Congress was painfully truthful.

They were not prepared for what he was to say, nor was it received well. It needs to be heard by every parent, every teacher, every politician, every sociologist, every psychologist, and every so-called expert! These courageous words spoken by Darrell Scott are powerful, penetrating, and deeply personal. There is no doubt that God sent this man as a voice crying in the wilderness. The following is a portion of the transcript:

Since the dawn of creation there has been both good & evil in the hearts of men and women. We all contain the seeds of kindness or the seeds of violence. The death of my wonderful daughter, Rachel Joy Scott, and the deaths of that heroic teacher, and the other eleven children who died must not be in vain. Their blood cries out f or answers.

"The first recorded act of violence was when Cain slew his brother Abel out in the field. The villain was not the club he used.. Neither was it the NCA, the National Club Association. The true killer was Cain, and the reason for the murder could only be found in Cain's heart.

"In the days that followed the Columbine tragedy, I was amazed at how quickly fingers began to be pointed at groups such as the NRA. I am not a member of the NRA. I am not a hunter. I do not even own a gun. I am not here to represent or defend the NRA - because I don't believe that they are responsible for my daughter's death. Therefore I do not believe that they need to be defended. If I believed they had anything to do with Rachel's murder I would be their strongest opponent.

I am here today to declare that Columbine was not just a tragedy -- it was a spiritual event that should be forcing us to look at where the real blame lies! Much of the blame lies here in this room. Much of the blame lies behind the pointing fingers of the accusers themselves. I wrote a poem just four nights ago that expresses my feelings best.

Your laws ignore our deepest needs,
Your words are empty air.
You've stripped away our heritage,
You've outlawed simple prayer.
Now gunshots fill our classrooms,
And precious children die.
You seek for answers everywhere,
And ask the question "Why?"
You regulate restrictive laws,
Through legislative creed.
And yet you fail to understand,
That God is what we need!

Men and women are three-part beings. We all consist of body, mind, and spirit. When we refuse to acknowledge a third part of our make-up, we create a void that allows evil, prejudice, and hatred to rush in and wreak havoc. Spiritual presences were present within our educational
systems for most of our nation's history. Many of our major colleges began as theological seminaries. This is a historical fact. What has happened to us as a nation? We have refused to honor God, and in so doing, we open the doors to hatred and violence. And when something as terrible as Columbine's tragedy occurs -- politicians immediately look for a scapegoat such as the NRA. They immediately seek to pass more restrictive laws that contribute to erode away our personal and private liberties. We do not need more restrictive laws. Eric and Dylan would not have been stopped by metal detectors. No amount of gun laws can stop someone who spends months planning this type of massacre. The real villain lies within our own hearts.

"As my son Craig lay under that table in the school library and saw his two friends murdered before his very eyes, he did not hesitate to pray in school. I defy any law or politician to deny him that right! I challenge every young person in America , and around the world, to realize that on April 20, 1999, at Columbine High School prayer was brought back to our schools. Do not let the many prayers offered by those students be in vain. Dare to move into the new millennium with a sacred disregard for legislation that violates your God-given right to communicate with Him. To those of you who would point your finger at the NRA -- I give to you a sincere challenge. Dare to examine your
own heart before casting the first stone!

My daughter's death will not be in vain! The young people of this country will not allow that to happen!"

Do what the media did not - - let the nation hear this man's speech.. Please send this out to everyone you can.
God Bless

To Organize or Not To?.... That Is The Question

I like to think that I am an organized person .. BUT seriously ladies I am not even if on a good day I really seem like it. I LOVE the thought of all the containers and cute labels, ect .... seriously I do!! I do try and try as I might somehow I always fall apart and my house looks like someone dropped a bomb on it.

On that note .... I would like to share one thing I have found that has helped keep 2 things in my house organized perfectly and easily. You can use it in so many ways it's just crazy and if I had not seen it somewhere (like The TODAY Show r something) I would have never thought of it myself.

SHOE BAG!!! Yup, just a clear shoe bag that you attach to the back of your door..... or in my case one on each side of the playroom door until I find a different door for my stuff. teeheehe

One of the has all of Maddie's art stuff .. crayons, markers, glue sticks, scissors (higher pocket for when little friends are over), little notepads, colored pencils ... the list goes on and on. The best part is she put it away and SO FAR her friends do as well which makes me a happy Mom!! :)

My shoe bag has ribbon and is sorted by color. You can use it in a pantry for Gladware containers and tops ... I am always loosing those darn tops. The possibilities are endless.

So go for it ... organize or not .. that's a question you'll have to answer for yourself. :)

My Funny Bunny

My little "funny bunny" isn't so little anymore ... sigh ... but with being the bigger bunny come a little more responsiblity.

We went to and Egg Hunt/Birthday Party for Elizabeth and Molly this past weekend. Our girlies are turning 1 year and 3 years .. seriously where does the time go?

Maddie was not real sure at fisrt about going because she knew she would be the oldest "bunny" there BUT once she found out the Easter Bunny would be hopping by she was cool with going and helping the "baby bunnies" out. With this she took it upon herself to egg hunt for Molly , who was turning only one! (Was so cute because we all know a one year old could careless about anything except laughing and being happy ... no eggs neccessary!)

The party was great! The "Daddy Bunny" cooked up an amazing meal for all the other "Parent Bunnies" Let's just say .. yummy in my tummy!

I am convinced Maddie would have been a great big sis .. she was so helpful at the party. She egg hunted for Molly and we all know a one year old could careless if her basket was filled, but Maddie was bound and determined it would be. She helped Elizabeth with her bunny ears and with her lunch. She even played ball with the boys and held some of the little ones (she was in heaven since I am always telling her NOT to pick anyone up!!)

She was tickled blue that Miss Jenifer asked her to hold Bannon for the pictures ... of course I thought Miss Jennifer was nuts since Bannon is only 16 weeks old!

Trying to get everyone together for a picture with the Easter Bunny! What a job!!

Maddie helping Ebeth with her ears at lunch.

My "bunny" waiting her turn to bat and swinging with all her might. Thanks Tommy , I know you must have pitched that ball 1,000 times to the kiddes that day.
Sarah, the decorations were great!! Simple, sweet and perfect!!!
