This was the subject of a friends BLOG .... it got me thinking about our youth today.


I am also concerned with all the "Things" kids seem to think they must have....I see them everywhere, texting, nose stuck in a DSL, playing video games on a hand held gadget...often while sitting across from someone who is being totally ignored!! They are so engrossed with communicating, no matter what else they are supposed to be doing at any given time...they grow up to be addicted...then you see them causing accidents due to communicating while driving!!!

There is actually a saying going around..."Death by cell phone...!" I saw a mother showing a text and the caption read, "This is the text my daughter was reading when she pulled straight out into on coming traffic..." the Mom held up her daughters cell phone, it said "Where U at?"

My granddaughter received a 4 wheeler for her 5th birthday...(yes, a real one!!) by the time she was six she was often too busy to talk, (DSL...) I have been the one who buys the majority of her clothes, and I admit I have gone all out....I do feel self image is a HUGE thing while we are growing up, and if they don't have nice enough clothes..., well you know how kids are....

I am as perplexed and disturbed by the media as anyone, what is on TV during prime time family viewing hours is appalling...how bout that "Lady GaGa"?? Don't even get me started on the movies that are invading our world...OH MY GOODNESS!!!!!Where is it going to end? Read revelations for that answer!!

The only thing I know to say is, parents get them in a good, down to earth, non-judgmental, B I B L E teaching church at a young age, and do whatever it takes to keep them interested in that area of life!! Yes, I do realize that is very difficult to find that type of church! It can be done tho! My church is a great example of that very thing! The youth group is given TOP priority, they have the entire church on Wednesday evening. They are being taught that life is what you make of it, with self disciple, love of GODs word, respect, moral values, and self worth as their top issues! They are called H2O, and have their own dance, music, and also acting opportunities! I have seen several of their performances, it is obvious that when given the chance, lots of love and adult intervention, those kids bring so so much talent and enthusiasm to the table...it is so uplifting to watch!!! I am serious, it blows me away how much talent they possess!! I wonder how many youth do not ever tap into the talents they are born with, because no one ever encourages them or guides them to do so...so much wasted potential!!

I also think getting the young people involved with animals is an excellent avenue to pursue! This teaches them respect for living things, responsibility, to care for something other than their own wants and desires...PLUS it gives the animals someone to care for them! I remember knowing kids who were raised on a farm, in agriculture at a young age, and learning how to care for the land, raise crops, tend to all that it takes to run a farm. They were rarely in trouble and seemed to grow up proud, productive, law-abiding citizens!

I would love to see more centers opened up, for our youth to have a place to go, where some of these things were being made available to them! If I had a lot of extra money I would certainly invest in such places! It would be so rewarding, and fun to be instrumental in giving guidance, nurturing, loving support. I think it would be awesome to engage people who are getting up there in age, possibly semi-retired, yet still very young at heart, in being the ones to open some centers and start to redirect our youth! It would be beneficial to everyone involved, and to the entire population!!





KICKIN' 5 pounds to the curb, at a time, has become a weigh of life for me! At WEEK-END WARRIORS team we are doing KICK 5 joint ventures, which are bringing about some real success!! Join in the FUN, it is exciting and keeps us pumped & prayed up!! It is easy to look at only 5 at a time....then do it again & again.... all the weigh to your ultimate GOAL!! YOU CAN!!

Yes, LACEE, I agree with you. That is a wonderful blog...it gets my vote too!!!

If we saw all the difference even the tiniest of our prayers make, and all the people those...prayers were destined to affect...we would be so paralyzed with awe...that we would be unable to get up off our knees for the rest of our lives.
