Wichita theatre

people say and do stupid stuff. sometimes on purpose, sometime on accident, and sometimes in jest. either way we are all just human and make mistakes. usually people forgive, usually if people are hurt it is handled in private, it is handled gracefully.

Most people who do the hurting would never do it on purpose, would do whatever possible to fix it. but most people did not happen last night. one person blew up, one person looked like a fool for no reason other than a simple mistake, and now a whole group has to suffer.

I hope the one who blew up know how stupid it was! i hope it happen to them someday. To be shamed in public for no reason. i pray the one who is now really hurt know they are not in the wrong intirely. that they grow from this. i hope the group knows the real story.

Birthdays

Have you ever thought about how your birthday came about? maybe I am wierd but i always knew the story of how i came about. My mom did not want to raise kids in DFW so they moved back to WF right after christmas and i was convieved in February.

But today i was thinking about how may people i know that have november birthdays. Just in my close family it is the most popular month! then I know 4 or 5 people that are near if not the exact same day birthday as me. so it you figure backwards 9 to 9 1/2 months that puts us all convieved in January or February. Maybe even 2/14! so that make for alot of cold winter night babies and valantines babies:)

just a thought.

Insurance in Texas

Did you know that Texas cops can now see if you have current insuance? Accord to on agency as many as 40% of Texas drivers have no insurance!


TexasSure, the vehicle insurance verification database designed to reduce the number of uninsured motorists, is now available to law enforcement statewide.
TexasSure is a secure database that matches the records of registered passenger vehicles with personal auto insurance policy information submitted by Texas insurance companies. The project was mandated by the Texas Legislature and is a collaborative effort of the Texas Department of Insurance (TDI), the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) and the Texas Department of Information Resources.
The statewide rollout follows a successful field test program by the DPS in the Austin area. TxDOT made the database available to tax assessor-collectors statewide in June.
"After a vehicle is pulled over, the TexasSure database is a fantastic tool that helps law enforcement identify those who are driving without insurance—or with an expired or phony insurance document," said DPS Lt. Louis Sanchez.
DPS strongly recommends that law enforcement agencies verify insurance coverage through existing methods before impounding a vehicle for no insurance. It is DPS policy to not impound vehicles solely for no insurance, but other police departments may have their own policies.
"If you don’t have liability insurance for your vehicle, your chances of getting a ticket just went up dramatically," warns Lt. Sanchez. "If you have insurance, continue to carry your proof of insurance, as required by state law."
Here’s how it works: during a traffic stop, law enforcement officers may use the license plate and/or VIN of a vehicle to submit a query to the new database through the Texas Law Enforcement Telecommunications System (TLETS). Some agencies will need to customize their software in order to obtain information from the TexasSure database. (Law enforcement departments have already received information on the program from DPS and can contact DPS TLETS for further information.)

Stay at home dads and Mark Driscoll

I copied this from another site. I would love to here thoughts on this. It is very relavent to my husband and I as he is a stay at home dad! I do not agree with everything Mark says but some of it I do. Mark Driscoll on Stay-at-Home DadsIs it ever OK for the husband/father to stay at home with the kids while the wife/mother provides for the family? Mars Hill Pastor Mark Driscoll says that unless there are extreme circumstances that would prevent a man from providing for his family, being a stay-at-home-dad could be a matter of church discipline. here is the link- http://theresurgence.com/should_husbands_be_stay_at_home_dadsIn an interview segment of a sermon series he's doing on Song of Songs, both Mark and his wife, Grace, condemn the idea of stay-at-home dads directly and without hesitation by pointing to 1 Timothy 5:8, "But if anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for members of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever." I admire Mark and Grace for boldly proclaiming what they believe Scripture says about the different roles God has given men and women in family. Check out the video in it's entirety for the full context and tell us what you think. Jennifer
