Aloha Friday - Church & State


An Island Life is hosting Aloha Friday. I thought it would be fun to participate. All you have to do is answer the question I ask by leaving a comment. Then click over to An Island Life and link up to Aloha Friday with your own question!

My Question:


Recently,  President Obama asked all religious leaders...pastors.. priests...rabbis...to "Validate" his Health Care Over hall from the pulpit...since the people tend to trust them.  You can read about it here.

Do you think Obama should be now mixing the Church and State? When he has clearly said before where he stood?!



My Answer:

I am not sure where to start on this one. President Obama has yet to choose a church himself to attend. He says he is one thing but yet.. his life, actions do not reflect his words.

Setting that aside... I think it seems like a last ploy before the elections for him to ask "religious leaders" to validate his decisions. It seems a little hypocritical when.. not too long ago they were saying that Preachers who talk about politics from the pulpit, or even give an opinion on social issues with a biblical point of view could be fined, lose their tax exemption status, and be jailed.

Interesting world we live in isn't it?

A little about me...



It is that time again!!!! I am thinking of attempting to lose weight for the 100 millionth time. haha. This time I know it will work :)

In November of 2007, I gave birth to my second child, a C-Section. Not only did that put me back physically, but I also developed high blood pressure. I am only 29. Talk about discouraging.

I started gaining weight in highschool. Seems to have followed me everywhere. My ultimate goal is to lose 120 lbs but I'll settle for 10 right now. haha.

There is absolutely no reason why I cannot succeed in this weight loss endeavor. I have exercise equipment. I guess that means I have to use it. Also, I am going to attempt the Carbohydrates Addict Diet. I have had some success with this in the past.

So I am thinking, with putting my progress out for the world to see.. it will force me to make the right choices. Let's hope!! Feel free to comment on anything or tell your story. It's always encouraging to hear about others successes. Join me on this weight loss journey...
