So....here's a grand finale summer vacation.  One of the most expensive...and least enjoyable...times for me is the boring horseback ride.  I used to work on a dude ranch and really like just letting it all out every once and a while.  But for these three young bucks.....or buckettes....there is ...
I was exposed to this just this past week. It's awesome, awe inspiring, and just a bit direct to the heart. I love Stevie Nicks and Landslide. These kids know what they're doing and the music and and vocals and arrangements are awesome. Hope you enjoy it this Friday as much as I do!

With the election coming, forget your political party.  Do you know the history of our country.  Most people only remember 5th grade history. This was shared with me by a fellow co-worker.

 1 “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. 2 In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. 4 And where I go you know, and the way you know.”
(John 14:1-4, New King James Version) I review for BookSneeze
