Children will make their decisions, and will defy the rules, but it is the responsibility of parents to do everything in their power to teach their children to reason and to make good decisions. Teach them correct principles, so that they can govern themselves. Dominion over your children will do nothing for them, but giving them the tools for reason will facilitate good decisions through out their lives.
I repeat, "Do you know where your children are at?"
Teach them well, so you can say yes or at least I kow where they are not.

What a lovely site. The international symbol of freedom. Many people have been liberated from the grasp of tyranny as this flag approached on the horizon. The Flag of the United States, Old Glory. We can only pray that this flag flies over the land of the free and the home of the brave for many years to come. We cannot allow myopic banter about lackluster political maneuvers tear us apart. We cannot let others set up false dichotomies to pit us against each other. Reach out to your neighbor and use your freedom to bless the lives of those around you. Rather than fight your brother in hopes they will change their hearts, reach out with love and the word of God, which has the power to soften the hearts of even the most stubborn. Others may use their freedom and power to obstruct justice or prosecute a vendetta, but if we use ours to bring good into the world the bad cannot prevail.

Purple is the color of royalty and this flower is truly clad in regal glory. Size matters so little when your natural beauty overshadows the greatest creations of man. This little purple flower in its delicate frailty has power to bring awe to the heart of man.

This is where it all happens. The lies, the half truths, and the purely partisan bickering and fighting about all the issues that don't matter, while we the people face the real issues in our daily life. This is where they legislate away our freedom, while we use the little freedom we have left to try to earn a living for ourselves. The only way for a people to remain free is to demand their freedom from the government. When we surrender out rights and differ thinking to the government we quickly become slaves to those who claim to have a deeper understanding about critical issues, when the truth is they only have a deeper purse when it comes to deciding critical issues.
Be wary and vigilant, but do not loose hope. I know this was a critical post, lambasting those who govern; however, I am optimistic that if we pay close attention and hold those who are supposed to represent us responsible, that out country can be a land of freedom and prosperity. Think twice about what you hear from any politician, and get the opposing view. Mull it over and make the rational decision, and do not be ruled by the passion of the moment. Allow your sense to feel out the issue and ideas discussed. Rash decisions make for big messes to clean up later.

Here is some info about the Castle. My favorite part about this picture is not the castle, but the tree infront of the castle the is lit up in the shadowy area of the photography on the right.

Here is some more from my trip to D.C. As you can see the leaves were colorful, and the skies were blue. Though I was there for a research conference, I happened to find ample time for taking in the sights, and shooting a few pictures. I cannot take full credit for the composition of this photo however, I saw a man with what looked like very expensive camera equipment set up and take a similar photo. I walked up quickly tweaked my settings, snapped the photo, and it took me less than a tenth of the time. It would be interesting to compare the results.

I took this picture in November while I was in Washington DC for the Society for Neuroscience Conference. I am posting this picture in commemoration of finishing my master's thesis. If any of you have been wondering why there have been so few posts on the blog recently a long document detailing a year and a half of research had something to do with that. I was able to present it while in DC, and while there I was able to capture a few good pictures as well.

Many people spend little or no time taking photos during the winter months, however, that is often when you can find some of the most interesting things in nature. This photo was taken on a very cold day. Although it’s one lone ragweed, it made for a good photo session.

This post has nothing to do with the beloved book by Lewis Carroll, rather this is a picture of Lake Alice. The wonderland where Alice can be found is Gainesville Florida. I'm not sure what kind of magic really goes on here, or if many people do any wondering, but I find life quite wonderful in this strange land. This wonder may have to do with my personal outlook, and the many blessings that the Lord has provided me with. As tough as life gets when we find the bright aspects and rabbit hole can be a wonderland.

Exodus 17:6 "Behold, I will stand before thee there upon the rock in Horeb; and thou shalt smite the rock, and there shall come water out of it, that the people may drink. And Moses did so in the sight of the elders of Israel."
Helaman 5:12 "And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall."
John 4:14 "But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life."
