80's Cabaret

Here I go again with a layout of Ashley. I've  been blessed by lots of good pictures of her lately. In September, she sang the hit What About Love by Heart in a special 80's cabaret.  She really got into it and now says she loves the 80's.

 Weren't the 80's just a few months ago?  How did it get to be 2012 already?

The 80's seem not far behind me, but at the same time the year 2008 seems like forever ago.  Could anyone have imagined how much damage could have been done to a country in just four years? I would never guessed it possible...but we are seeing the consequences now of voting for Hope and Change.  We now hope to change the direction we are taking, by taking a closer look at our constitution and remembering how very well things were going before the Democrats took over the house and Senate in 2007 and crashed the housing market by insisting that banks loan money to people who could not afford to make the payments...some who couldn't even sign their names.

 I am incredulous. How did we let this happen?  And then we voted.  What a disaster... no corrections, just more of the same failed policies over and over. Instead of letting banks go back to making loans only for those who could pay for them, we forced other regulations on them and blamed them for bowing to the pressure of Congress.

We are now in Day 13 of the 40 days of prayer preceding the election.  At Bible study tonight, we were talking about prayer and Philippians 4: 6-7 came up on the table.  Many of us have felt some anxiety about the election and this verse speaks to that problem.

" Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let you requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus."

So continue to pray, letting your requests be known to God.
