New Fav Verse

1 Peter  2
13 Be subject for the Lord's sake to every human institution,[b] whether it be to the emperor[c] as supreme, 14 or to governors as sent by him to punish those who do evil and to praise those who do good. 15 For this is the will of God, that by doing good you should put to silence the ignorance of foolish people. 16 Live as people who are free, not using your freedom as a cover-up for evil, but living as servants[d] of God.  
17 Honor everyone. 
Love the brotherhood
Fear God. 
Honor the emperor.

This is one of my new favorite verses. It speaks so well to our hearts around election time. We must not forget that when we honor our authority, we honor God. 
As a fleshy flesh sinful dirty rag I also love that when we do good foolish people are silent....we don't need to heap coals on them or get the last word.  
It also reminds us that we have a dual citizenship....to America(our gov't) and to the Kingdom of Heaven. We must be active participants in both but only when they run parallel. If they ever contradict then our loyalties stay with God, we are living servants for Him. 
Finally, these verse keeps my blood from boiling during the debates..:)

More pictures of my sweet blessings at their birthday party celebration with friends...I know its a little late...there goes my Mom of the Year award :)

Playing with Papa....you can see that little tongue out...probably saying " dada da"
 Jumping away!

 That little face melts my heart.
 This cute little thang played dodgeball pretty much the whole time with his friends...Dylan and Zach....in his teachers words " being friends with Zach is the goal for 2nd grade"  :). Thats okay with us, they are all sweet little men.

 Speedy man grabbing the balls to throw back.
 Always smiling!
 Oh, those little teefers......Look at that hair, its starting to get crazy like big sisters!!
 Getting ready to eat cupcakes and sing!
 Chocolate and football themes for Goober....
 ......and vanilla and princess themes for Ribbit.
 She needed some help blowing out her big ole princess candle.
 Her best friend "Naphan"...Nathan came to jump with her. When he left his mom said "give Ribbit a good bye hug"....instead  Ribbit tackled Nathan and gave him a big ole kiss on the forehead. They both died laughing which set me and Nathan's mom off as well....two very sweet friends. (now lets hope she gets that whole tackling boys and kissing them thing out of her system QUICK)
 Mommy drew football lines and Dallas Cowboy stars on all the little boys.
 OH sweet BOYS!!!! These two are super sweet together and love one another!
 Playing with Naphan!
 Dancing to the song inside of her !
 A little swing action!
 Tickling each other in the bounce house.
