Not my original words, because my ole brain just does not put thought together this way. I truly appreciate when I see someone who can though.

Let me get this straight...

We're going to be "gifted"
with a health care plan we are
forced to purchase,
and fined if we don't,

Which purportedly covers at least
ten million more people, 
without adding a single new doctor, 
but provides for
16,000 new IRS agents

written by a committee whose chairman says he
doesn't understand it,
passed by a Congress
that didn't read it,
but exempted themselves from it,
and signed by a president who smokes,
funding administered by a treasury chief who didn't pay his taxes,
for which we'll be 
taxed for four years,

before any benefits take place,
by a government which has
already bankrupted Social Security
and Medicare, 

all to be overseen by a surgeon general
who is obese,

and financed by a country that's broke!!!!!

What could possibly go wrong?

Obamacare explained with condiments

My Dear Friend

Mwenebolongo, who I am trying to help build his church in Tanzania, is very ill!!!
Please keep him in your prayers.  I do not have any real details about his illness, just that he needs immediate prayer.  I am very frightened for his dear wife if he does pass.  He has the assurance of his salvation, but Motoko will be a widow in a country that widows are not cared for.  She will most likely lose her home and property and be forced to return to Congo.  Once Mwene is gone, there will be no reason for the Government of Tanzania to allow her to remain.  Her refugee status will become once again active.
I have been spend much of the day asking God what he wants me to do if He takes Mwene home.  I am getting the answer that I am to continue with my project.  If God does not want me to use it to help build a church, in His time, he will show me what he wants me to do with it. God's money will never go to waste.
Mwene and Motoko's picture is on the  sidebar of my other blog, so you can see who you are praying for.
I thank all of you for your care, concern and support, for Mwene and the Church Project.

I copied and pasted this from my Yestheyareallmine-mom blog.  Please do keep this precious man and his wife in your prayers for me.

Gosh, I have not posted for two weeks

It is not that I don't care.  I probably care too much.  I get so wrapped up in what is happening that I sometimes just get to angry.  I just have to take some time to think my thoughts through.  Blogging about it is not going to change it.  It has probably landed me on some watch list.  I am in good company though:) Cause I know all of you would be there also.
My computer also crashed two weeks ago.  I had to send it away to the Computer Hospital.  Of course I had nothing backed up so I lost everything.  I think if I let myself think about it, I am sorriest about losing my pictures of DC and Hawaii.  Only possessions though, can't take them with me. But..........................I could have left them to my children to fight over who gets to throw them all away.
Spending many hours caring for my mother.  That takes much of my energy.  I stay with her on Mondays and Fridays, a sister on Tuesday and Thursday and nieces rotate Wednesday. My sister and I each live a hour (me) or more (sister) from her so the drive is also a bear.
I am also spending lots of hours knitting for my church project.  If anyone is interested in hand knit items, let me know.  I put all the profit into a savings account to help build a church for my friend Mwenebolongo, in Dar es Salaam.  If you are interested in what I make, I often post pictures on my other blog. You can go take a peek.
I guess what I am saying, is that I am tired.  I need a rest.  I need to not think about the world (like that is going to happen) that consumes me.
Maybe after all of the Arizona news is old news, I may feel like once again adding my two cents into the fray.
Love you all and really do appreciate your friendship.
