Why does AUSTIN want to be its own state

And if God is the father to the fatherless then the church must be the MOTHER ... time to step up churches in the UNTIED STATES and care for the orphans of the world, they are counting on us !!!!

Never thought about the church being the mother (since we are the bride of Christ after all--we have to be the mother to the fatherless)....I LOVE IT..and reposted that part on fb....we have got alot of nurturing and loving to do:) Jennifer

Great post. Totally laughed about your ride home. Sounds like one leg of mine. Horrible. Loved hanging with you. That last quote you just wrote is exactly the first thing I told my husband when I got home. Great stuff. Love you sista.

Wondering what your thoughts were on the foster care part of the conference. I would have like to have been there. I wasn't quite ready to leave our 7 month old foster baby to come.
