For clarity

Sarcasm wasn't the best device for that last post. I found the recognition of the mother in the old Canada book beautiful. There is also great beauty in seeing a statement that defines families as made by a mother and father. It is beautiful seeing God's holy word printed inside a book put out by the government of Canada. This country will prosper or burn on account of mothers. Is there a more powerful figure than that of a mother? No national service is greater or better than the work of the mother in her own home. Isn't that lovely?

There was a day when God's words were thought to have had value for the nation.
We cannot forget to pray for ours.

i enjoyed the sarcasm. i also enjoyed the seriousness of these comments.

oh, and silas' comment reminds me (as I remember how you two know each other) that I've met some great NA guys - John Sundara (did I spell that right?) and Steve someone-or-other. the more peeps i know, the more i think of what a stellar 6 weeks that must have been.

OK so I clearly do not know you as well as I thought I did. I plogize for the ranting.

hmmm... i just got back from a young adults leadership conference where the main speaker talked about how there's a Father's heart movement going on in Canada... but that we also need to have a Mother's heart as well, to guard and protect those which God has entrusted to us. (it was based on the story of Rizpah in 2 Sam. 21:1-14)

and i wholeheartedly agree with that statement... no national service is greater or better than the work of a mother in her own home.

Hehe... the internet is a very bad medium for sarcasm unless you know said person who is being sarcastic VERY well.

i think...that while the words of the book are beautiful, i still find them a bit comical (wow, now everyone who reads your blog will think i'm a raging feminist and a liberal Christian, or something. hopefully you know me well enough to know that i am neither of those things.)

i have to admit to laughing a bit when i read the book, not because its words are off the chart. if we're looking at the book itself, i agree, it is beautiful to see God's holy word printed inside a book and put out by the government. however, the book inherently comes with history, and i think the ugly nature of history taints the book, and makes it seem a bit hypocritical.

i think i'll write more about this on my blog in a couple of days...just to clarify myself......so that your readership doesn't think i am po-mo feminist or something.

i have NO clue what that last comment meant.

hopefully its not the type of laugh thats really saying, "okay, so she thinks she isn't a raging feminist, but i know that she really is...so i'll just let her keep on thinking that.."

because if that IS what you mean, that is devastating. haha.
