You can see the toll sin has taken... in their eyes.

I just browsed this article about 10 stars who've "lost their dreamboat status".

The main ones were Tom Cruise and Mel Gibson .... and even before I read the articles, I could see it in their eyes that they were GONE.
Tom's eyes are crazy now, I was shocked when I saw the picture... and wasn't surprised that his eyes were the exact topic of his article.

But it's not just his... you can see a lot of the eyes have changed... you can see the toll sin has taken on them. alchoholism... tax evasion... pride on a patheticly elevated level etc.

We make these actors our gods, and worship them, and throw offerings at them... and they're just human, and THEY FAIL. No one can have that much freedom and stay on course for long. I read Michael J Fox's book a few years ago, and I've never forgotten how he talked about actors being sooo spoiled... no traffic tickets, any kind of products they'd like for free, being able to "use", and being protected and coddled through all of their bad behavior. He was confessing it as his own struggle, but it applies to most of the actors in hollywood. And we allow it, and praise them, because they're good at pretending in front of a camera. We need to get actors off the pedestals they're on, and give them the same rules we have to live by, the same consequences for all the little things... not just wait til they're insane to say.."hey, you're not living right".

It's just sad. Our kids look up to these people. The most obnoxious actors are now doing voices for our kid's movie cartoons! Why?? Why on earth do SNL comedians have to become children's movie stars? Oh, that's a whole 'nother vent. I won't go into it all now. Our poor kids.

We all have problems, I'm not just pinpointing actors or picking on them. We all need to examine our own lives, and make our peace with Jesus our Savior. Only He can truly straighten us out, and help us through every struggle we have in this sin-sick world.

Charlie's in a new home

I put the pets up on Craigslist, there were quite a few reasons for giving them up, money, stress, etc.

Someone adopted Charlie last night. I'm glad. The guy seemed really nice, and owns another Yorkie, so he knows about the breed already.

A nice lady is coming to get Frappie this weekend. She owns 2 other lionheads and spoils them, so I know Frappie will do well with her.

Thank you Lord, for your amazing creation.

Human Being on Life Support

An unborn baby is a human being on life support.

if u would like to help

We used so many credit cards, and stuff for last year, being with Gabey in the hospital, and medicine and stuff. Those haven't been kind.

Also, the medical bills from Fairview and Cleveland Clinic have just kept building, and a lot of them are in collections now.I know I haven't asked recently, but if anyone wants to donate to our paypal... at the donation button on the side of Gabey's blog....
we would be so grateful.

God is good, and we will plug away.

A personal writing from a man I respect deeply

"Please excuse me if I don't feel like smiling at this point and assuring everyone that all is well -- God is in control -- the sun still comes up after the election loss, and numerous other well-meaning, but to me at least, inappropriate platitudes. Understand that I realize the truths contained above, but all is NOT well with America. I am convinced that our beloved nation has been changed forever -- not just because a liberal Democrat has defeated a less-than-exciting moderate Republican, but our America is being sucked into the quicksand of immoral socialism. With some forty percent of Americans already dependant upon the US government by receiving government assistance in a variety of ways while paying no federal taxes, the strain on the tax-paying class comes ever closer to becoming intolerable. Capable people who learn to become totally government-dependant and then teach their children and grandchildren to do the same, will NEVER wish to become productive again. You can write that in stone. When a nation has more people on the receiving end than those on the producing end the system implodes. We are already perilously close to that point. That's the sucking sound you hear.

Mr. Obama has promised to nominate Supreme Court justices which agree with his pro-abortion bias. He has received much support from the nation's number one abortionist, Planned Parenthood. I'm sure he will return the favor. He has also promised to install the FOCA (Freedom of Choice Act), which had been beaten back several time by pro-life Republicans in recent years. This radical FOCA law will strike down all existing reasonable restrictions on abortion such as parental notification and parental consent for the minor girl who wants an abortion -- 24 hour waiting periods in which a girl/woman must be given scientifically-accurate information about the human life within her and then is required to wait 24 hours to think about it -- restrictions like abortions paid for by tax dollars, etc. The result will be that all hard-fought pro-life laws will be struck down and the number of abortions will mushroom. If we were compelled to witness just one abortion and the resultant destruction to an otherwise beautiful human baby we would all be in tears, and many would faint at the horror. The election of Mr. Obama has guaranteed the deaths of additional multiplied millions of American babies. Further, pro-life American Presidents have refused to allow liberal members of Congress to send large financial grants to nations around the world for abortions (again, funded with our tax money).

Ever since Cain killed Able God has punished the shedding of innocent blood. The Bible tells us God hates it. Reading through the Scriptures you will see numerous instances when God sends His righteous judgment upon a nation guilty of this sin. Nevertheless, America, this week, has chosen to pronounce open season on the unborn. For what they hope will be better financial times they have made their choice to sacrifice the lives of others. Mr. Obama has also said he supports homosexual couples adopting children. Reading the books of Jeremiah and Lamentations you will see the unspeakable horrors associated with the judgments of God, with mothers cooking their children to stave off starvation. While it is true that God was still in control during those grievous times I doubt that desperate Israelites found much consolation in being reminded of His control, or that the sun still came up, etc. etc.

The Bible reminds us in Ecclesiastes, "To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:... A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance..." Dear friends, this, in my heart, is a time to weep and mourn for America. To admonish someone for being broken at this time is, it seems to me, as inappropriate as to tell a grieving woman who has just lost her husband to "cheer up, the sun still comes up, and God is still in control."

What kind of SICK person thought up partial birth abortions!!!!!????

I can't even put the picture here, right to life has actual medical drawings of the partial birth abortion procedure!! I'm crying! What, because you don't pull his HEAD out, you can kill him and it's OK???

I am ABSOLUTELY AGAINST any form of abortion, and will be voting for pro life candidates. I DO not understand how people can care more about the PETA, and things like that, and NOT care about humans. We have digressed so far, we value animal life which has no soul MORE than human life. And don't get me started on how we value MONEY more than anything else in life.

AND what is the argument for partial birth abortions? oh, he's not a human until i pull his head all the way out?? WHAT in the name of all that's moral and right can be the justification of that?? They started out justifying abortion because they made the excuse that life doesn't start at conception, it starts at birth, but HOW can they argue that anymore? Premature infants are surviving, and flourishing, under Dr's care. Why is this even having to be discussed? What kind of people are we?

We are sacrificing our babies, just like the heathens of old, but not to a god we think of as a god... we sacrifice babies now to the god of convenience, to the god of immorality, and selfishness.

I am DONE!! I can't type anymore. I am sick, my heart is GRIEVING!

I laughed so hard when I saw Frappie laying like this!

Giddy my Love


i feel so badly, but i guess most moms skip out on chronicling their second baby's milestones, and stuff.i've taken tons of pics, but i didn't get to update my calendar with the cool things he's done.

he turned 1 on the 15th (oct)he's 20 lbs. and so solid. i don't know how tall he is.
he's got 3 bottom teeth, his fangs and one front tooth, with the other on it's way.

he's been walking since 10 months.... now, he climbs, and does a goofy trot.
he is really good with his hands, and can color a little, he holds his bottle, and helps change his shirt, and knows how to play with gabey's toys.
he's so smart, i'm so amazed at him. he'll show me what he wants, and guide my hands. he'll go pound on his door if he's poopy, or wants a nap. he just started doing that. i love it.

he isn't extremely verbal (except for screaming, lol), but he says mama dada baba and uses w y and others in his babble. he grunts for things.he's really good at catching on to games, and loves being thrown around, he's my little toughie. loves being upside down, and only cries for a minute when he gets hurt.

he's got a great sense of humor, and loves goofing off, and gets a kick out of our laughing at stuff he does.

he's so beautiful it brings tears to my eyes when i look at him sometimes. i can't get over how perfect he looks.

he eats everything in sight! he loves putting EVERYTHING in his mouth. and he's always begging for my food too.

ahhh. my little bitty giddy. my love, i just wanted to write down some cool stuff about him to remember.

my beautiful boy


this was giddy's one year birthday outing to the mall... here he is enjoying mc'D's fryfries
