I had a couple of things to mention today but my main thing I wanted to mention is I'm starting a soldier prayer list. I was trying to figure out the best way to do it and I decided I would start another blog to put things of a devotional nature on it. (Rebecca originally mentioned doing a devotional blog herself and I always thought it was a good idea.) I was going to put the list on my sidebar but I figured it would probably get too long. That way I can continue to update the prayer list on my other blog and whenever it is updated I will mention it on this blog. I will also occasionally write things of a spiritual and devotional nature on there since this blog is devoted mostly to politics. My other blog is entitled Immersed in Grace and you can go there now if you want to submit a name for the soldier prayer list or you can submit their names on this blog too. To help keep most of it private I thought it would be good just to mention their first name, the state they are from and where they are stationed now. I started the list off with 4 people I know or know thru friends. It is for men and women in the military whether they are here or overseas. You can submit your own name if you are active military or the name of loved ones or friends. I know some of my fellow bloggers are in the military but I didn't want to add your name without your permission so please submit your name if you want to be on the list. I will be praying for those on the list on a regular basis and will encourage those that pray and stop by to pray also. I'm hoping this will be a small encouragement to the men and women who are serving our country.
Also, I found the citizenship test on Dr. Howdy's blog. Here is what he said:
"How well would you do if you took the citizenship test. Try this out-educational and fun. 24 out of 30 is con- sidered a passing grade. I understand that 96% of all High School Seniors FAILED this test... AND if that's not bad enough, 50+% of all individuals over 50 did too!!"
I ofcourse passed by the skin of my teeth and got a 24. But the test said I was very close to passing so I don't know what that was all about but it was fun so take a couple of minutes and take the test. And if you feel like sharing I would love to know how everyone scored.
TAKE THE TEST
SPECIAL THANKSto Texas Fred who helped me finally figure out how to post pictures on my sidebar. Woo-hoo!!
