The band wagon broke down...but it's all better now :)

It happened again! Wow, sorry guys. This time two months went by without me posting my song of the week! I don't know how it happens, but the time just seems to slip away.I'm trying to get my life back on track. I realized today that I have not been to Starbucks in about a week, and I'm pretty sure that's the source of all my problems! Plus we are out of peanut butter and string I'm pretty much dying here! I've also been slacking on the good things book (sorry Becca), but I'm trying to start that again too. This week seems to be ending a lot better. Thanks Andrew for all the laughs and support. :)

Charles Schultz

For a while now I have been a firm believer that Charles Schultz understood life better than most people. He didn't have all the answers, but he took what he did know, and lived his life to the best of his ability. A while ago I made a list of some of his quotes as a Nationals gift for Becca. I came across it the other day and decided to look them up again. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
“All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt.”

“Sometimes I lie awake at night, and ask, 'Where have I gone wrong?' Then a voice says to me, 'This is going to take more than one night'."

“My life has no purpose, no direction, no aim, no meaning, and yet I'm happy. I can't figure it out. What am I doing right?”

“I think I've discovered the secret of life - you just hang around until you get used to it.”“Don't worry about the world coming to an end today. It is already tomorrow in Australia.”“Try not to have a good time...this is supposed to be educational.”

“Decorate your home. It gives the illusion that your life is more interesting than it really is.”

“Yesterday I was a dog. Today I'm a dog. Tomorrow I'll probably still be a dog. Sigh! There's so little hope for advancement.”“Big sisters are the crabgrass in the lawn of life.”

“I have a new philosophy. I'm only going to dread one day at a time.”

"Exercise is a dirty word - Every time I hear it, I wash my mouth out with chocolate."

"Nothing takes the taste out of peanut butter quite like unrequited love."

"There must be millions of people all over the world who never get any love letters . . . I could be their leader."

"This is my depressed stance. When you're depressed, it makes a lot of difference how you stand. The worst thing you can do is straighten up and hold your head high because then you'll start to feel better. If you're going to get any joy out of being depressed, you've got to stand like this."
"Why can't we get all the people together in the world that we really like and then just stay together? I guess that wouldn't work. Someone would leave. Someone always leaves and then we have to say good-bye. I hate good-byes. I know what I need. I need more hellos."

Plane Crash

Family of Irving 'Bud' Feldkamp, Owner of the Nation's Largest PrivatelyOwned Abortion Chain, Dies in Montana Plane CrashMEDIA ADVISORY, Mar. 24 /Christian Newswire/ -- Some of you may have seenthe major news story of the private plane that crashed into a Montanacemetery, killing 7 children and 7 adults.
But what the news sources fail to mention is that the Catholic Holy CrossCemetery owned by Resurrection Cemetery Association in Butte - contains amemorial for local residents to pray the rosary, at the 'Tomb of theUnborn'. This memorial, located a short distance west of the church, waserected as a dedication to all babies who have died because of abortion.
What else is the mainstream news not telling you? The family who died in thecrash near the location of the abortion victim's memorial, is the family ofIrving 'Bud' Feldkamp, owner of the largest for-profit abortion chain in thenation.
Family Planning Associates was purchased four years ago by Irving Moore"Bud" Feldkamp III, owner of Allcare and Hospitality Dental Associates andCEO of Glen Helen Raceway Park in San Bernardino. The 17 California FamilyPlanning clinics perform more abortions in the state than any other abortionprovider - Planned Parenthood included - and they perform abortions throughthe first five months of pregnancy.
Although Feldkamp is not an abortionist, he reaps profits of blood moneyfrom the tens of thousands of babies that are killed through abortionsperformed every year at the clinics he owns. His business in the abortionindustry was what enabled him to afford the private plane that was carryinghis family to their week- long vacation at The Yellowstone Club, amillionaires- only ski resort.
The plane went down on Sunday, killing two of Feldkamp's daughters, twosons-in-law and five grandchildren along with the pilot and four familyfriends. The plane, a single-engine turboprop flown by Bud Summerfield ofHighland, crashed into the Catholic cemetery and burst into flames, only 500ft. from its landing destination. All aboard were killed.
The cause of the crash is a mystery. The pilot, who was a former militaryflier who logged over 2,000 miles, gave no indication to air trafficcontrollers that the aircraft was experiencing difficulty when he asked todivert to an airport in Butte. Witnesses report that the plane suddenlynosedived toward the ground with no apparent signs of a struggle. There wasneither a cockpit voice recorder nor a flight data recorder onboard, and noradar clues into the planes final moments because the Butte airport is notequipped with a radar facility. Some speculate that the crash was due to iceon the wings, but this particular plane model has been tested for icyweather and experts have stated that ice being the cause is unlikely.
In my time working for Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust, I helpedorganize and conduct a weekly campaign where youth activists stood outsideof Feldkamp's mini-mansion in Redlands holding fetal development signs andraising community awareness regarding Feldkamp's dealings in child murderfor profit. Every Thursday afternoon we called upon Bud and his wife Pam torepent, seek God's blessing and separate themselves from the practice ofchild killing.
We warned him, for his children's sake, to wash his hands of the innocentblood he assisted in spilling because, as Scripture warns, if "you did nothate bloodshed, bloodshed will pursue you". (Ezekiel 35:6)
A news source states that Bud Feldkamp visited the site of the crash withhis wife and their two surviving children on Monday. As they stood near thetwisted and charred debris talking with investigators, light snow fell onthe tarps that covered the remains of their children.
I don't want to turn this tragic event into some creepy spiritual 'I toldyou so' moment, but I think of the time spent outside of Feldkamp's - PamFeldkamp laughing at the fetal development signs, Bud Feldkamp trying not tomake eye contact as he got into his car with a small child in tow - and Ithink of the haunting words, 'Think of your children.' I wonder if thosewords were haunting Feldkamp as well as he stood in the snow among theremains of loved ones, just feet from the 'Tomb of the Unborn'?
I only hope and pray that in the face of this tragedy, Feldkamp recognizeshis need for repentance and reformation. I pray that God will use thisunfortunate catastrophe to soften the hearts of Bud and Pam and that theywill draw close to the Lord and wash their hands of the blood of thousandsof innocent children, each as precious and irreplaceable as their own.
"I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. Chooselife, then." (Deut. 30:19)
