We must vote...the stakes are high!

I suppose I am in shock over the "Good People" in America, as I drive through neighborhoods seeing signs in support of Obama.

My reason for supporting John McCain really has nothing to do with our economy, it has nothing to do with health care and nothing to do with the defense of our county. My vote comes with the deep conviction that if we don't defend the weakest in our society then it truly will fail. We have had enough warnings telling us to defend life. Once we understand this as a nation we will be richly blessed.

Senator Obama's character is important! It is the fact that we must rely on heavily! Yes there is a lot of controversy over his relationships and they are all very questionable. We do have a right to know of these relationships. But the one I'm most concerned with is his relationship with Planned Parenthood and the promise he has made over one fundamental issue. Which the news has not allowed you to see.

You can view his promise that he made to Planned Parenthood, the FIRST thing he will do as President of the United States.

You can view this here
OK I just looked at the link to double check and amazigly it has been taken down, if you click on it you will try this one

What is the promise? He promises to take away ALL restrictions for abortion. No counseling would be offered to any women seeking an abortion, no parental permissions would be sought. And our tax dollars would pay for abortions over seas in other countries. One has to ask themselves WHY? This is a mult-trillion dollar industry so I suppose the stakes are high for those who profit.

Read what the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops say about FOCA , which is the bill that Obama has promised to make into law.

NO matter what one believes we can not stand for this action. It is the greatest evil of our time and we must heed the warnings, which I leave below.

It is said that when the Holy Father leaves a country his last message is the most important! Both Popes, Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict before departing America left the following message.

Pope John Paul II:
"America you are beautiful . . . and blessed . . . . The ultimate test of your greatness is the way you treat every human being, but especially the weakest and most defenseless. If you want equal justice for all and true freedom and lasting peace, then America, defend life."

Pope Benedict:

"Use your freedoms wisely." as he closed out his first papal trip to the United States.

He repeated a core message of his six-day pilgrimage — that faith must play a role in public life, citing the need to oppose abortion.

The unwavering truth of the Roman Catholic message, he said, guarantees respect for the dignity of all, "including the most defenseless of all human beings, the unborn child in the mother's womb."

And most recently left by Archbishop Raymond L. Burke

ROME (CNS)—The Democratic Party in the United States "risks transforming itself definitively into a ‘party of death,’" said U.S. Archbishop Raymond L. Burke, prefect of the Vatican’s highest court.

We should not take these statements lightly they are fundamental truths that should be yelled from the roof tops!

I have placed a link on the left of my page above Senator McCain's support for you to join the many of us who will be praying for this country. I hope you will join us in this prayer to thank God for the blessings we have had here in America, that is our Freedom! We must not enter into the Culture of Death any longer. HOW WILL WE EVER EXPLAIN THIS TO OUR CHILDREN or for that matter, when we die HOW WILL WE EVER EXPLAIN OUR VOTE TO OUR JUDGE?

God bless us & God forgive us!

Store and Forum are good to GO!

Thanks to Michelle's persistence and hard work she was able to save the store and most of the forum. I am so proud of her! Most of all so thankful, here she was getting away and had to spend hours in her hotel room trying to find where the hacker(s) put the problem. She did discover it and was able to recover as much as she could. Let's here it for Michelle who really needed a break yet stepped up to the plate as a responsible owner of the best store/forum on the Internet!

I was hoping to get this news to you last night but had cheerleaders here making a break through banner for the football game today. It turned out really nice and I hope to get you some pictures.

Jennifer and I are now preparing for a Mother/Daughter luncheon with the wonderful host from Pure Fashion. We will be at a very exclusive restaurant which over looks the Arch. A professional will be teaching us etiquette, and if you ever ate with Jennifer you would understand why this event is very important!!! Scott has often said if she doesn't clean up her eating habits we will never marry her off. I'm very excited to go it's been a busy few weeks and I'm looking forward to the afternoon away with some wonderful like minded ladies and their daughters.

Hope to get some great pictures too!

Have a great weekend!

Please do not go to any of the links on my blog that would lead you to the Paperthreads store, forum or gallery.

That means any of the links on the left under "Important Links". You may risk getting a trojan or a virus.

The designers at Paperthreads will let you know through the blogs when the site is safe to access.

Thank you for understanding!


The Paperthreads store and forum

If you happened to log into the Paperthreads store or the forum last night or this morning, you may have noticed that they are not there! That’s because someone has hacked the server. Michelle is aware of the problem and has made it know to the designers that getting them back is going to take some time, like 48 hours or so, not days. She is being very careful to save what can be saved and this is why it will take some time. We thank you for your understanding and hope to have see the forum and store back soon.

In the mean time let's get a contest going!!!

The first three submissions will receive my Haunted Mansion Album. The winner of the layout will receive ALL of my Halloween files that I have created so far.

So here are the details:

Create a 12 X 12 album using three of my files. You get to have the choice of what files you want to use and how you want to use them. You can use any theme that you would like.

Once I receive the files I will place them on my blog for you to see, I will then place a poll on my blog for viewers to vote for the best layout created. You will have until midnight Friday, October 24th to submit your layouts. Over the weekend I will have time to get them on my blog. On Monday, October 27th I will then place a poll for you to vote.

When voting I would like you to vote according to the best overall use of my files. Clarity of photos, use of colors and origanility. This layout must be new, you can not use a layout that you have posted in the Paperthreads gallery or any other online gallery before.

If for some reason we have a tie, I will then have my family and other designers help in judging. So that we will have a fair and balanced vote!

I hope to see your creations!
