Joseph's Painful Decision

I think "poignant" is an appropriate word.

We must not have worn out our welcome...

We must not have worn out our welcome at the Mexican party because Maria invited us back for a daytime visit for actual corn grinding and quesadilla making on Veterans Day.

In these photos Chandler and Gabrielle grind corn into meal while Maria and our friend Cynthia look on.

Fiesta

We had the coolest experience Saturday evening for which I have a ton of pictures to share...

Tammy and the kids recently finished a study of Mexico and had wanted to end the unit with a fiesta with another homeschooling family we also have a bible study with. Tammy made pinatas which the kids painted and we were going to have tacos, etc.

At some point Cynthia, the other mom, called Tammy and told her that her mother-in-law had a Mexican neighbor who was willing to show the kids how real tortillas are made. We thought we would take our sour cream, lettuce, cheese and taco meat (with Taco Bell brand seasoning) over to the mother-in-law's and go next door for a little bit for a tortilla lesson.

As it turned out, we arrived to discover that Maria was preparing a whole meal for us in her very cool outdoor kitchen. We felt a little silly sharing our Tupperware container of taco meat when she pulled out her deliciously seasoned flat steak and pork chops to put on the cook-top.

We ended up spending the whole evening sitting outside at the outdoor kitchen under a huge pecan tree that was loaded with pecans eating the most delicious Mexican food I've had. I now realize that even my favorite Mexican restaurant in town (that is Mexican-owned and operated) is actually is not very authentic.

The couple, Maria and Florencio, was very sweet and generous to us. They spoke almost no English so their daughter Maritza and her boyfriend Jesse translated for us.

They have invited us back for their Christmas celebration which we are excited about.


I've got a ton more pictures on flickr: Mexican Party.

Cameron at the library

I love free stuff...

I've been following the blog of Joe Sangl for quite a while. He is a Finance Teacher/Counselor - "Get Out Of Debt" guy very influenced by Dave Ramsey.

Joseph Sangl is the Pastor of Financial Planning at NewSpring Church in Anderson, SC, and is one of the original fifteen people who helped start NewSpring Church.


I say all that to say this. Joe is offering a FREE Sample of his Group Study Kit to Church leaders. If you are not a church leader, maybe yours would appreciate a heads up here.

My ship has come in....

Email just received - I may not need Dave Ramsey or Barack Obama after all.

A watershed election with regard to abortion

A great Summary from Justin Taylor...


....I want to plead with fellow evangelicals to recognize that this is a watershed election with regard to abortion. Barack Obama has promised to make signing the Freedom of Choice Act his first order of business in the White House--and with a Democratic Congress, he will be able to make this happen.

The Knights of Columbus recently catalogued the many small successes achieved in the pro-life political process since 1973:

The Hyde Amendment, which restricts federal funding for abortions;

The federal law banning partial birth abortions, which was finally upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court in April 2007;

The “Mexico City Policy,” which has barred the use of federal taxpayers’ money to pay for abortions in other countries;

Laws in 44 states that preserve a parental role when children under 18 seek abortions;

Laws in 40 states that restrict late-term abortions;

Laws in 46 states that protect the right of conscience for individual health care providers;

Laws in 27 states that protect the right of conscience for institutions;

Laws in 38 states that ban partial birth abortions;

Laws in 33 states that require counseling before having an abortion;

And laws in 16 states that provide for ultrasounds before an abortion.

With a stroke of the pen, all of these would be gone.

I am under no illusions that electing John McCain will necessarily lead to the overturning of Roe v. Wade. But I do believe that McCain would be a good pro-life president, I know that McCain would veto the radical FOCA, and I know that Obama is the most extreme pro-abortion candidate to ever run for president.

I believe evangelicals should care deeply--though not idolatrously--about this election, and that they should do what they can to stop, or at least slow, the slaughter of the innocent. Voting is one of the things you can do. I encourage you to do it, and to do so with a view toward the weakest and most defenseless members of the human race--3,700 of whom are being killed every single day in the United States.
