Ministry of Correction

You know what they say, “there's no such thing as bad publicity.”

Last night at the NCAA Championship basketball game, there was interesting opening act.

A band you might know The Fray, performed the national anthem.  They had a hit Christian song several years ago called, "How to Save a Life".

I feel bad for the guys.  Today everyone is talking about the performance, and not in a nice way. I admit when I first heard it my eyebrows raised.

We are so quick to find fault with each other.  I call it the Ministry of Correction.

But we all mess up at our jobs, and it hurts when someone points it out. So thankful that God sees when I mess up, and loves me anyway.

Maybe we could just let each other off the hook more.

Good afternoon Amanda,

Listening to your show, just heard your remarks about Pintrest, and how you might seem like less of a woman because you apparently into crafts and stuff like that.

I am a guy, decidedly not into crafts and have never been on Pintrest.  I just want to take this opportunity to tell you to never measure your worth as a woman by what you think other people expect you to be interested in.  You talk about your kids on the air a lot and you are obviously a woman of faith, so why not create a Pintrest category of your own and create a micro-blog  about the perils and joys of being a busy single Mom, or why not a Pintrest category where you create and post a short devotional or inspirational thought every day?

Let the beauty you have shine through, not the beauty that you think other people expect of you.

Regarding family...like you, I come from farmers.  We arrived in America about 110 years ago.  I have had my farmer side of the family on my mind today because I learned this morning of the passing yesterday of one of my aunts from that side of the family.  She went to the Lord at the age of 96.  She was the mother of 14 children, grandmother to 59 grandchildren, and great-grandmother to 51 great grandchildren.  A total of 124 lives through her.  Amazing woman of faith.  We are saddened by her passing, but know she is rejoicing with her Lord & Saviour.  Seemingly such a simple, unheralded life....yet what a legacy to leave behine.
