Should we worry?

*The last few times we've gotten packages from the UPS, they reek of smoke.

*I can "test my sexiness" on facebook now. Finally!

*There were bloody fingerprints on our junk mail last Wednesday.

*Friends went to a casino for a silly night out and on their way out saw a family getting settled. The parents were heading inside and the children were all set up in the minivan with a DVD playing.

*The National news this morning spent more time on Britney Spears than the Iowa Caucuses.

*PGN in Guatemala has announced that they will not process any new adoption cases (or current ones that get previos) that are not registered with the "Central Authority" in Guate. This is disturbing in that the Central Authority does not exist.

*Before Christmas a friend was in a store where they were collecting items for "Toys for Tots". He overheard a little boy asking his mom why they would need to buy toys for kids when Santa always brings the toys. His mom replied that Santa can't find poor people's homes so regular people have to help. Wow.

*On the news last night they stated that the average presidential candidate spends at least $200 per vote when it's all said and done. Maybe I'll skip voting and give my $200 to Erin to fix her treadmill.

"And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? If then you are not able to do as small a thing as that, why are you anxious about the rest? Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass, which is alive in the field today, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, how much more will he clothe you, O you of little faith! And do not seek what you are to eat and what you are to drink, nor be worried. For all the nations of the world seek after these things, and your Father knows that you need them. Instead, seek his kingdom, and these things will be added to you." Luke 12:25-31

I'm glad God is in charge of this mess!
