“I pray because I can't help myself. I pray because I'm helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time- waking and sleeping. It doesn't change God- it changes me.”
― C. S. Lewis

I believe in the sun even when it's not shining. I believe in love even when I don't feel it. And I believe in God even when He is silent. (quote found on the wall of a concentration camp)

Studying the Bill of Rights
We are getting ready to memorize the Bill of Rights. Today we were going over them and the right to bear arms came up.
I asked the girlies: What does it mean, "You have the right to own, keep and bear arms?"
You have the right to have babies with arms! (bear)
You have the right to keep your arms. Nobody can take them away.
If somebody cuts your arms off, you can own them by keeping them.
If your arms don't have hair; it is ok, you can keep them.
Here are a few more rights:
The right to petition for grievances in Fair and Honest Judgement:
"To tell the judge what you think of him."
I means you can go to the judge and they will be unjust.
The right to privacy in homes:
The condition of being out of the sight and hearing of all other people.
IT means that you want to be left alone.
The right to free speech and press:
You can say what you want to say
It means the right to speak free without getting pressed.
The right to freedom from arbitrary government regulation and control:
You can do whatever you want.
The right to bargain for goods and services in a free market:
To be able to get what you want at the store.
The right to trial by jury and innocent until proven guilty means:
You get together with them and tell them if you are guilty or not.
hmmmmm. we have much work to do. :)
