I was just listening to the Rev. Charles Stanley out of Atlanta speaking on how we all need to pray for America. He listed 20 issues in our country that show it's time to pray. Not just pray, but "call out to God." I think it would be great if a lot of people heard this message.
I'm not sure when this will air on TV -- today or Sunday -- but it's seen on lots of channels, including PAX and TBN. The TBN showing is at 8 p.m. every Sunday night, Eastern Time. You can go to the In Touch Web site to find out where it's airing on your television.

If you can listen or watch it on the Internet I'm including the link. Please send these links on to others if you don't mind. I wouldn't be bothering you all if I didn't think it was a wonderful message. He doesn't preach Democrat or Republican, just the word of God.
No matter your political persuasion, you gotta admit Sarah Palin is interesting and is causing people to talk. Here's a funny about the VP candidate from one of my favorite ladies, Dolly Parton.

The Yada Yada Prayer Group Gets Real (Yada Yada Prayer Group, Book 3) The Yada Yada Prayer Group Gets Real by Neta Jackson

My review

rating: 5 of 5 stars
This was great. Another fine book by Neta Jackson. Imagine my surprise to find out in the study guide that lots of people -- like me -- feel so much like Jody! I'm not alone. We're all wanting to change and draw closer to God, learning to do more to actually turn more of our worries and concerns over to him rather than just give lip service.

I love these three books so much that I used part of my birthday gift certificate to order the next two. And, my plan to give the books I've read to the church has slightly changed. I'll either give them my used ones or buy the church library it's own set! LOL

View all my reviews.

World Vision Warns of Southern Africa Food Crisis

The Christian Post reports that the international community must focus on more than one need at a time in Southern Africa. "As we mark World AIDS Day, the international community must focus its attention on the looming food crisis in southern Africa, whilst also addressing its long-term causes -- including the AIDS pandemic currently devastating countries such as Malawi and Zambia," said World Vision policy adviser Stephen Doughty. On wednesday the relief organization began an emergency appeal to assist the 12 to 14 million hungry who face compounded problems thanks to the AIDS pandemic, especially in Malawi and Zimbabwe. World Vision Emergency Officer Nick Wasunna in Zimbabwe said, "I saw queues of people at food distribution centers," he said, in a report on the agency's website. "After talking to them you discover they are all affected in some way by HIV." Many children must stay home to care for sick parents.
Fireproof (see below) came in No. 4 at the box office over the weekend! That's pretty great for a film that was at limited theaters and is not your usual box office-type movie. I haven't gone to see if yet.

It also sounds like it's definitely a couples movie.
