amen!

Let's put all this pregnancy stuff on hold, sorry baby barron. I wanted to share with you an email that my daddy sent me that his friend wrote. I believe in standing up for what I believe in, but I also believe in giving respect where respect is due. I serve a God that is everlasting and all loving and I will raise my child in the likeness of the Lord.

Please take a second and read what this email says. I firmly stand behind each word, each sentence and each phrase.



> >>>> I don't believe in Santa Claus, but I'm not going to sue somebody for
> >>>> singing a Ho-Ho-Ho song in December. I don't agree with Darwin , but I

> >>>> Theory of Evolution.
> >>>> Life, liberty or your pursuit of happiness will not be endangered because
> >>>> someone says a 30-second prayer before a football game. So what's the big
