GOP Unite

Over the weekend, establishment Republicans continued to disparage GOP candidates.  Even those like John Cornyn, R-Senator from TX, who states he now supports all Republican candidates, reveals he might not believe his own words by his lack of enthusiasm for the candidates.  In an interview with Laura Ingraham on Friday, John Cornyn, the Chair of the National Republican Senatorial Committee said he just wants to support the most conservative candidate who can win.   But to use that litmus test of “who can win” you need a crystal ball. It is a subjective argument with no way to prove who is right.

The Republican voters in each district reviewed the candidates and, right or wrong, they made their choice.  The time for arguing over which candidate with the “R” behind their name has the best shot of taking the general election in November is over. 

The Republican Party may be divided on which candidates should represent the GOP for a win in November, but the party is unified in the goal to take back the House and Senate in the November general election.  But, to ensure a victory, we must quit arguing, get behind each and every one of our Republican candidates, and stand for common sense conservative principles that awakened Americans are clamoring for.

The people, through the tea party and grassroots efforts, are telling Republican leaders and strategists that we believe in the First Principles upon which our great nation was founded. Hear us sounding the call for the return to our conservative roots; give us a platform to stand behind for governance.  We don’t want to just vote against something, but to vote FOR something.  By announcing an agenda or another “Contract for America” the party or elected officials can outline for the country their beliefs, ideas and goals and become a magnet to attract like-minded individuals to the party.

As long as Republicans, Conservatives and the Tea Party are united in stopping the President’s agenda and reversing course on the massive spending and deficit increases, we can take back Congress in 6 weeks. 

This increasingly important election will allow the voters to reshape the face of elected politics in Washington for many years.  We can unite as a group to send a message that we do not like the direction the President and his House and Senate are pushing the country down.  Let's reverse course and preserve our country for future generations.

If there is a year to turn blue states red, 2010 is that year.

Don’t Leave Facebook for Lent – Take it Over!

  So many Christians leave Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and other social media channels for their Lenten devotion or fast.  With the purpose of Lent being to rededicate our lives to God and grow in holiness, I understand why so many fast from Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and more for Lent.  Our social media feeds these days are full of darkness, sadness, and temptation.  They are far from the original purpose of the platforms to bring community together. Pope Benedict said in his message for World Communications Day 2013, “Believers are increasingly aware that, unless the Good News is made known also in the digital world, it may be absent in the experience of many people for whom this existential space is important.”  He continued. “Social networks… also reshape the dynamics of communication which builds relationships.”  This is part of the reason why I dedicate my time to sharing the Good News online.  I believe in my call as a Christian to go and make disciples of ALL NATIONS – eve

Prayer to End the School Year

Another school year is coming to an end.  And what a year the 2017-2018 school year was..... The events of the last 9 months have made me not only thankful to see it end but needing to get on my knees to Thank God for many things.  This school year began with Hurricane Harvey hitting our area and ended with the devastating school shooting at nearby Santa Fe High School. In the middle of the crisis around us there were so many beautiful things, events and people that touched and changed our community and family for the better.  Let's just start with the teachers and administrators who have interacted with my kids this year...  A special social studies teacher that made a fast friend out of my geography obsessed daughter, an ELA teacher who slowly won my oldest daughter over with her love of the written word, a soccer trainer who pushed my son harder than he thought he could handle, and then helped him recognize how that hard work paid off.  What about a school nurse who repeated

12 Quotes from St. Teresa of Calcutta

St. Teresa of Calcutta made a deep impression on me as a young girl as I watched her on tv and in news. Who doesn't remember the iconic picture of Mother Teresa with Princess Diana splashed across all magazines, newspapers and news shows?  To me, Saints were people who lived a long time ago, but here she was, a saint in the making.  Mother Teresa was a role model of how to become a Saint in our modern world, by giving her life to God through her dedication to the poor. On her feast day, I want to share with you a few of my favorite quotes from St. Teresa of Calcutta.   Her words are seemingly simple and straightforward but packed with meaning.  My selection comes out of a new favorite book I picked up called, Mother Teresa: Her Essential Wisdom by Carol Kelly-Gangi.  This little book contains hundreds of quotes from St. Teresa of Calcutta centered around specific themes as well as a summary of her biography and quotes about her from others.  "God does not demand that
