Gun Control? Is That What We Are Calling It?

Today I read the article below.

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2009/05/13/critics-deride-designed-weapons-terrorists-hands/

I know about HB45 (I may be wrong on the numbers, or letters, please don't hold me to it), which is the bill that will keep those of us who own guns from owning them unless we get a background check, fingerprinted, photographed, register the guns we own, EVERY gun, and require you to give your first born child. Okay, THIS bill is just ridiculous. I won't even go there.

However, the article above that I read today made me so.....MAD.....that I just didn't know what to do but PRAY. According to this article, last month a report was issued saying that if this bill in the article passes, "Critics say the names of suspected terrorists could be drawn from existing government watch lists that cover such broad categories as animal rights extremists, Christian identity extremists, black separatists, anti-abortion extremists, anti-immigration extremists and anti-technology extremists."

It also says that ,

"The American Legion, the largest veterans group in the country, harshly criticized DHS officials last month after they reported that veterans would be likely recruits for right wing groups looking for "combat skills and experience."

So this would put ALL YOU VETERANS on a terrorist watch list. It would put most everybody I know on a watch list. And the only way to get off? Is to go to federal court and fight it. Which, of course, is so affordable, and we KNOW the government won't drag THAT out.

America, watch out. Christians, pray. Get on your knees before our Lord and pray. This is the beginning of a battle that isn't going to end. I am not saying it's the end of the world. What I AM saying is that eventually, if we as citizens don't start DOING something, then this stuff will be voted in, and once they take our guns, they can take anything else.


Today is Sunday. I heard an amazing message preached today by a man from MUD Ministries. Yes I know. Alabama, mud, etc. MUD stands for Making U Disciples. His website is at www.mudministries.com . He has 5 gorgeous children, a gorgeous wife, and one kid on the way. He travels all over evangelizing, teaching, equipping Christians with the tools they need to evangelize, and to tell the story. He will go to churches big, little, it doesn't matter. He also works in Nicaragua as well. His name is Eric Hixon. Pray for his ministry. His family, and the work that God has given him. Okay. I am done for now. Please pray for
my family, we have certain needs I won't go into, and certain people that need God. He knows what they are. Please feel free to email me at any time.

Post Partum Depression: The Myth

I used to be like everyone. I figured PPD was mostly just a sad woman with a newborn who's hormones were  out of whack. Then when my son was born, we experienced a pretty traumatic birth and C section. My milk never came in. I started Reglan to help produce milk and it caused PPD. I saw a doctor, got off the meds, stopped trying to breastfeed, simple right? I'm fixed. 
Except it's not that simple. Yesterday my son turned 9 months old and I still struggle daily with PPD. Turns out it wasn't "just the medication". I'm in school full time. I don't work. I'm blessed to have my surprise miracle son, as well as the opportunity to stay home with him. But that's not right either, because PPD doesn't care how blessed you are. This is the silent struggle. The stigma. Sure, once we're all being candid behind our screens we'll talk about it. With strangers. With "internet friends". I mean, if you talk about it with PEOPLE you'll b…

He Will NOT Stop Crying!!

"He will NOT stop crying!"
That phrase characterized my son's first few months of life. Screaming, crying with no relief. Change the diaper, change the clothes, feed him, rock him. NOTHING HELPED!!
And I heard it all. "Oh he's colicky." and "well, he's just an irritable baby" (that gem was from his pediatrician) and "flip him end to end" and "he's just manipulating you" (yes- the four month old baby). 
I was an emotional, confused mess. All I could think was there was SOMETHING wrong with my sweet boy. I KNEW it. And no one would listen except my husband. As a first time mom, albeit a "maternally advanced" mom, you get treated like you just don't know. You get dismissed. But I digress.
Did you know that the sound of an infant's cries are used in torture? I am not surprised. Listening to the boy child cry was pure torture and all I could do was cry with him.
I went round and round with doctors, who wouldn…

High Risk Appointments and Ligament Stretching

Because I am going to be 35 when the baby is born, as well as my Hughes Syndrome, my OB thought it best that we consult with a high risk doctor at Maternal Fetal Medicine from UAB.  I was 10 weeks for that appointment and everything went great. They did an ultrasound and Andrew got to see the baby for the first time. Apparently our little Turner hears the music because during the ultrasound he was bobbing his head, almost like it was in tune to music.



This is 10 weeks of baby. My ligament stretching and pain has started and today it's been pretty bad. I can tell I'm pregnant thanks to my belly and I'm pretty shocked that I'm this big this fast. That being said, somehow, somewhere, I'm going to have to find a bra that holds these babies in. Because that is the other place that I'm rapidly expanding. 
Little Turner is growing quickly as well. Everything looked great. Heartbeat and all. And of course Daddy Andrew was just flabbergasted and excited.






So apparently e…
