A Banner Day In Illinois

We woke up to a layer of ice from a night of freezing rain, which turned to snow and is now causing horrific conditions outside. Other than some read aloud time, everyone here has taken a snow day!!
This morning also brought news of our corrupt Governor's arrest for supposedly trying to sell Obama's Senate seat. Not shocking as our Governor has been known to sell his power. Now they have proof. Hmmmmm.Our country is failing in more ways than I can count. It is as backwards as this sign....So....it's a banner day here in Illinois!! I think I will pray and quilt this banner day away and wake up tomorrow with a renewed hope........or at least some more progress from my needle and thread!!!!

Nice sign!

Do homeschoolers get "snow days"? LOL We don't ever get any snow, but we have "rain days" where all the streets flood. We just stay home and do school regardless!

I feel the same way that you do, Bren. I am very uneasy about the way things are going in our country. I have to constantly remind myself that God is in control and that He will take care of His people. Stay safe in all that snow and ice!

Bren, I just can't figure out what is going on. I can do is rest in the fact that God is in control and none of this could happen without his permission. He after all gave satan permission to test Job, let us only hope that we (America) can only persevere as Job did.

Hi Bren,
I finally had a moment to stop by! Love the sign, that is exactly the way our culture is. All you need is another sign saying how intolerant it is to tell someone the bridge is out ahead :)

Did you make the Bless This Home sign? It is so pretty, I want to make one too.

Also, I wasn't shocked about your govenor. I just wonder who he pissed off to get CAUGHT doing that.

Many Blessings :)

That sign is funny, as long as it's not real! Of course, it probably is. :-( The senate seat "thing" is just one more sign of a corrupt government. Unfortunately this sort of thing has gone on for years, in all areas of government. I just pray that it is all for His reasons!
