Around Tuesday of last week, I began to get a sharp pain in my stomach. I had a similar stomach pain about 8 years ago and went to a Gastroenterologist who with an endoscopy and colonoscopy determined nothing was wrong so he just told me to stick to the bland diet. Figuring as much on Tuesday, I went on with my regular diet and just cut out anything with tomatoes or pizza sauce.

“Over the last almost 18 months, you are the one person whom I gravitate towards because you ARE honest with me. Even if I don’t like what you have to say, you’re honest”

Oklahoma Republican State Representative George Faught on defense of a new anti-abortion bill is quoted,

It’s a great question to ask, and, obviously if it happens in someone’s life, it may not be the best thing that ever happened. But, so you’re saying that God is not sovereign with every activity that happens in someone’s life and can’t use anything and everything in someone’s life, and I disagree with that.

Last night I was on my way home from a friend’s house. I had a rough day and it was good to see her. I was driving down the highway listening to the Lacrae radio station as I have been prone to do lately. He is a Christian rap artist who my friend actually introduced to me. A song of his came on that I hadn’t heard previously so I did as I’m prone as well to do when I like a song — I played the song on repeat all the way home. The song is “Take me as I am.” It touched me and I did something I have not done very much in my life, I prayed.
