Ah, the Weekend!

***I have work to do this weekend, of course, but today Mom & I finally get to go to yard sales! There have been a few the last couple of Saturdays, but I've had company coming both days so we couldn't go. Today we get to start our coffee/yard sale/Amish store routine again. Lookin' forward to it! There are several in the paper - I just hope we don't get rained out.

***Prosecutorial misconduct. I don't know why anyone would expect anything else in the Zimmerman/Martin case. Follow the link and see how weak the prosecutor's case is.

The charges brought against George Zimmerman sure look like prosecutorial misconduct. The case as put forward by the prosecutor in the “affidavit of probable cause” is startlingly weak. As a former chief economist at the U.S. Sentencing Commission, I have read a number of such affidavits, and cannot recall one lacking so much relevant information. The prosecutor has most likely deliberately overcharged, hoping to intimidate Zimmerman into agreeing to a plea bargain. If this case goes to trial, Zimmerman will almost definitely be found “not guilty” on the charge of second-degree murder.

Also, as much awful, slanted coverage as has been evident in this case, how in the world are they going to find an unbiased jury?

***Women driving gun sales up. You can bet they're not squishy liberal women.

***Chutzpah: Planned Parenthood's 40 Days of Prayer. Where to start...?

"Today we pray for women for whom pregnancy is not good news, that they know they have choices," read the prayer for Day 1.
Day 18 offers prayers for "staff at abortion clinics around the nation," while Day 38 calls for a "cloud of gentleness to surround" every abortion facility in the country.


***                      Gurl, let me tell you about the SHOES I found on sale!!

***Hillsdale College is offering a free online course on the Constitution - you can access it any time and learn what we all need to know. I'm doin' it! It's really easy to register, and you can do it whenever you have the time. Each lecture is about 40 minutes. 

***The church bulletin said what? We've all seen some of these, but some of them are new to me!

The sermon this morning: Jesus Walks on the Water.
The sermon tonight: Searching for Jesus.

Ladies, don't forget the rummage sale. It's a chance to get rid of those things not worth keeping around the house. Bring your husbands.

Remember in prayer the many who are sick of our community. Smile at someone who is hard to love. Say 'Hell' to someone who doesn't care much about you.

***Democrat members of Congress feel "great" about the charges against Zimmerman in the Trayvon Martin case. They feel that "justice has been served." So much for innocent until proven guilty.


***From A Gift of Inspiration:

Creating opportunity

An enterprising person is one who comes across a pile of scrap metal and sees the making of a wonderful sculpture. An enterprising person is one who drives through an old decrepit part of town and sees a new housing development. An enterprising person is one who sees opportunity in all areas of life.

To be enterprising is to keep your eyes open and your mind active. It's to be skilled enough, confident enough, creative enough and disciplined enough to seize opportunities that present themselves ... regardless of the economy.

A person with an enterprising attitude says, 'Find out what you can before action is taken.' Do your homework. Do the research. Be prepared. Be resourceful. Do all you can in preparation of what's to come.

Enterprising people always see the future in the present. Enterprising people always find a way to take advantage of a situation, not be burdened by it. And enterprising people aren't lazy. They don't wait for opportunities to come to them, they go after the opportunities. Enterprise means always finding a way to keep yourself actively working toward your ambition.

Enterprise is two things. The first is creativity. You need creativity to see what's out there and to shape it to your advantage. You need creativity to look at the world a little differently. You need creativity to take a different approach, to be different.

What goes hand-in-hand with the creativity of enterprise is the second requirement: the courage to be creative. You need courage to see things differently, courage to go against the crowd, courage to take a different approach, courage to stand alone if you have to, courage to choose activity over inactivity.

And lastly, being enterprising doesn't just relate to the ability to make money. Being enterprising also means feeling good enough about yourself, having enough self worth to want to seek advantages and opportunities that will make a difference in your future. By doing so you will increase your confidence, your courage, your creativity, your self-worth and your enterprising nature.
