Okay, I don’t want to seem insensitive, but really! I am watching the Today Show this morning and they are talking about the hurricane in Galveston, TX. There are people all over the news begging for people to help them, standing in line for food and water and upset because they aren’t getting anything. A lady was holding her little boy and said they didn’t have a car because it was floating in the water. My question is, did you have a working car prior to Ike hitting?
I am tired of people staying when they were told to leave and if they stayed that they needed to write their social security number on their arms with a Sharpie. Seriously! A friend of ours had a good point. They were told to leave and didn’t, so when the funding starts coming, should they really get aid?
People don’t always make good, sound decisions, but when my life and safety of my family is on the line, it really should be a no-brainer.

So, I just finished the book that many are ranting and raving about. The Shack written by William P. Young has been the talk of the Christian community for quite sometime. This author’s out of the box thinking has many wondering about his theology and the real meaning behind this book that has been classified as fiction.
For those of you who haven’t read it or heard anything about it here is what the book is about:
Mackenzie Allen Phillips’s youngest daughter, Missy has been abducted during a family vacation and evidence that she may have been brutally murdered is found in an abandoned shack deep in the Orgeon wilderness. Four years later, in the midst of his Great Sadness, Mack receives a suspicious note, apparently from God, inviting him back to that shack for a weekend.
Against his better judgment he arrives at the shack on a wintry afternoon and walks back into his darkest nightmare. What he finds here will change Mack’s world forever.
In a world where religion seems to grow increasingly irrelevant THE SHACK wrestles with the timeless question, “Where is God in a world so filled with unspeakable pain?” The answers Mack gets will astound you and perhaps transform you as much as it did him. You’ll want everyone you know to read this book!
I really enjoyed reading this book, but the only concern I have is this. This book is portrayed as being a non-fiction book in the foreward and after words therefore, those who do not have a relationship with Christ will be mislead and expect God to actually work the way the book explains.
While I believe that we can have conversations with God, I don’t believe it will ever be in the human flesh until we meet Him face to face in heaven where he has prepared a place for us.
I enjoyed reading the book and the way the author concentrated on the relational attributes of God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. I am a relational person and I believe that they have a love for me far beyond my imagination. I just can’t wait to see my Father face to face!

So, I joined this all girls Fantasy Football league. We had our draft last night, and while I will admit, I was very stressed out during the first round until I got the hang of it, it was still a lot of fun.
Here’s my Ms.Conception about this league. I didn’t realize that I was going to have to track those teams every week! What was I thinking? I love football and all, but man! This is going to be extreme!
I feel like I have a really good team I actually got Joseph Addai and Dallas Clark, along with some other great players. So this could be an interesting football season!
I would love some suggestions since I am really, really clueless!
