Happy Memorial Day 2010

us-flag-640x480
As we stand here looking
At the flags upon these graves
Know these flags represent
A few of the true American brave

They fought for their Country
As man has through all of time
Except that these soldiers lying here
Fought for your country and mine

As we all are gathered here
To pay them our respect
Let’s pass this word to others
It’s what they would expect

I’m sure that they would do it
If it were me or you
To show we did not die in vein
But for the red, white and blue.

Let’s pass on to our children
And to those who never knew
What these soldiers died for
It’s the least we can do

Let’s not forget their families
Great pain they had to bear
Losing a son, father or husband
They need to know we still care

No matter which war was fought
On the day that they died
I stand here looking at these flags
Filled with American pride.

So as the bugler plays out Taps
With its sweet and eerie sound
Pray for these soldiers lying here
In this sacred, hallowed ground.

Take home with you a sense of pride
You were here Memorial Day.
Celebrating the way Americans should
On this solemnest of days.

Happy Easter Prayer

easter
A Prayer for Easter Morning

0 Lord Jesus Christ, who upon this day did conquer death and rise from the dead,
and who are alive for ever more, help us never to forget your Risen Presence forever with us.

Help us to remember,

That you are with us in every time of perplexity to guide and to direct;
That you are with us in every time of sorrow to comfort and console;
That you are with us in every time of temptation to strengthen and to inspire;
That you are with us in every time of loneliness to cheer and befriend;
That you are with us even in death to bring us to the glory of your side.

Make us to be certain that there is nothing in time or in eternity which can separate us from you,so that in your presence we may meet life with gallantry and death without fear.

You turn our darkness into light, in your light we shall see light.

Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.
Christ the Lord is risen today!
ALLELUIA

“Healthcare Bill Passes Congress”

March 21, 2010
 
“Healthcare Bill Passes Congress”
 
“Please join me in my fight against “Big Government”, who just told us through Congress what type of healthcare we must have. The feeling of Conservatives like myself, and Independents is that we are a Country divided. A bill in Congress of this magnitude that only passes by 7 votes, proves that this was a partisan, social, and liberal attack on the American people.
 
I will always stand for small business, capitalism, and the working men and women of our Country. I cannot, and will not stand for socialism, and government control of our lives–this healthcare bill does just that. I am saddened by the reckless acts of our U.S. Congress, and I ask that you join me in efforts to repeal this bill, join other states that plan to sue the federal government, and work to protect Nevadans from Washington, D.C. forcing their ideology on our citizenry.
 
I will fight, as I always have for the principles embedded in our Constitution, protecting those most important words in our Declaration of Independence: “Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness”…this healthcare bill stares in the face of these most precious words.”

A Christmas Prayer by Robert Louis Stevenson

Loving Father, Help us remember the birth of Jesus,
that we may share in the song of the angels,
the gladness of the shepherds,
and worship of the wise men.

Close the door of hate and open the door of love all over the world. Let kindness come with every gift and good desires with every greeting. Deliver us from evil by the blessing which Christ brings, and teach us to be merry with clear hearts.

May the Christmas morning make us happy to be thy children, and Christmas evening bring us to our beds with grateful thoughts, forgiving and forgiven, for Jesus’ sake.   Amen.

The Things That Are Important About Christmas

It isn’t easy explaining all the things I love about Christmas, because there is so much about it that I truly love!

Christmas for me always brings back great memories of my childhood–all the cool presents I got, and the awesome food my family made. Helping my Mom and sisters decorate the tree was also a fun and exciting event in our home. Like many families, we drank eggnog and listened to Christmas carols. There is just something about traditions that strikes a cord in my heart.

As we get older things change, but some of the traditions remain the same–for me, there is still the tree decorating, even though I don’t put up as many decorations now as I used to. There is still the occasional night of listening to Christmas music, and thank goodness Mom’s food is still amazing!

In recent weeks as we have gotten closer to Christ’s birthday–the reason we celebrate Christmas, I’ve thought about the importance of the holiday, and what it means for so many of us. While the religious fact of the holiday is the most important, one of the results of this celebration is the gift of fellowship.

As many of us attend holiday parties and company gatherings, we’re able to see many of the people we deal with during the year in a different setting. Somehow the stresses of work, and responsibilities escape us, if only for a few hours. Christmas gives us a warm feeling of giving and selflessness. This is a time when many of us give to local charities, feed the less fortunate, and think about others.

Christmas in my opinion is the best way to finish out each year. It is a time of fun, but also a time for reflection. While times have been tough for all of us this year, now we can put it behind us and enjoy being with our family and friends. Remembering that often the simple things in life are the most important, and most enjoyable.

So laugh a little, love a little, and remember that Christmas is a time to celebrate–for there is much to celebrate in our lives!

NASCAR Championship Week Vegas Style

DSC00784   
 
  
Las Vegas, NV–Last week, NASCAR kicked off Championship Week with roaring engines down Las Vegas Blvd. If you didn’t get a chance to see it, the only word to describe it would be SPECTACULAR!

This was the first year NASCAR hosted this event in Las Vegas–in years past it was held in New York City. Las Vegas was the perfect backdrop for Sprint Cup drivers and fans. As I walked the parade route next to the drivers and fans, all I could hear was folks saying how awesome it was to be in Vegas!

After watching this event last week, it is my opinion that this event will only get better in the future. With more than enough hotel rooms, plenty of space on the streets for Sprint Cup cars, Las Vegas has proven we are the best place in the country to host Championship Week.

Not only does Las Vegas have a driver favorite track in the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, but Las Vegas is able to attract fans from across the country. NASCAR has already said in so many words that the space Vegas has compared to New York City is enormous. NASCAR Champion Jimmy Johnson never could have done a burnout the way he did on the Las Vegas Strip in New York City!

NASCAR fans like myself are looking forward to 2010 already and can’t wait for not only the race to return to Las Vegas, but Championship Week!

Why Nevada Needs Taxes Low

It’s no secret that after this years legislative session in Carson City, fees and taxes increased. Some of those increases were a direct result of a state budget shortfall that threatened to all but dismantle crucial public services. While issues regarding some of the taxes and fee increases continue to be debated, one fact remains–Nevada needs to keep taxes low. › Continue reading

Common Sense Republicans

Often in the political process, you come across people who are very far left, or very far right. Politico’s call them liberals and conservatives–some crazy bloggers and media hacks call them socialists or neo-cons. These are buzz words used in politics, and most often they are used to garner attention. › Continue reading
