My Chance to Vote in 1984*
I like Nixon very much,
I like McGovern too.
But if I had a chance to vote,
I don’t know what I’d do.
First, I think I’d panic,
Then I’d stand and shout:
“Doesn’t anybody know
What this election’s all about?”
I just hope whoever wins
Can stop this awful war.
Because I want my chance to vote
*In honor of President’s Day, I am sharing my first “published” poem. It was chosen for me to read over the PA system in my elementary school during the election when I was in fourth grade! My kids think it’s hysterical that I can still recite it!
With the partial-birth abortion ruling, our grown children had a lot to ponder and share. They know that a baby is a baby early on–not just because we told them forever or they learned it through their homeschool teaching, but because they experienced it first hand at young ages. Here is one daughter’s latest FB post–and her view of our stillborn baby when Cami was only eleven years old. Feel free to share with others.

There are five influences that we have found in determining priorities in life. Obviously, there are more impacts than these; however, these are the five that have guided us through the years. Like everything else we have learned and applied in our lives, these were learned from others (especially through Gregg Harris Seasons of Life seminar)—for which we will be eternally grateful.
The five influences on prioritizing include the following:
We have had technical difficulties with this week’s Wondering Wednesday, so we need to re-record it. So sorry!
