Capitol Update

The U.S Constitution requires that a population count be taken every decade for the purposes of distributing funding and representation equally among our communities. The 2020 census has been underway since mid-March, and the deadline to complete the census is fast approaching.

The Christian Union Station

AROUND 740 B.C., THE BOOK OF ISAIAH WAS WRITTEN!! THERE WAS NO SAVIOR FOR MANKIND!! YET!! THE SAVIOR, JESUS CHRIST, HAD US IN MIND TO GIVE HIS ALL SO WE CAN HAVE ALL!!! PRAISE GOD!!! JESUS CHRIST SAID, “SEND ME”!! Isaiah 6:1-13 1In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple. 2Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly. 3And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory. 4And the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke. 5Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts. 6Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar: 7And he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged. 8Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me. 9And he said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not. 10Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and convert, and be healed. 11Then said I, Lord, how long? And he answered, Until the cities be wasted without inhabitant, and the houses without man, and the land be utterly desolate, 12And the LORD have removed men far away, and there be a great forsaking in the midst of the land. 13But yet in it shall be a tenth, and it shall return, and shall be eaten: as a teil tree, and as an oak, whose substance is in them, when they cast their leaves: so the holy seed shall be the substance thereof. THIS IS A LIKE AND TYPE OF THE “ONE” WHO WAS TO COME!! THE SON OF GOD SAID, “SEND ME!! I’LL GO!! THANK YOU, LORD!!

A Few of My Favorite Things

All county schools are back in session or will be soon. Let’s be honest, this year NOTHING has been on schedule or as planned so by the time this is printed, it may not be true anymore. I don’t know about anyone else’s kids, but the kids in my life all demand Katina Holland snacks as soon as the school Special to Your day is over. I mean they are so hungry like they haven’t eaten all day-kids can be so dramatic sometimes. With today’s options being full of dyes, artificial flavors and sugars kids don’t really need, I thought it would be a great time to include some easy after school snacks you can make on the weekend and have on hand all week (or all month) long.
