Fields White To Harvest

 

 

Lord, I thought I knew you,

   but know the winds have changed.

Tossed away, will you find me?

   Can still , my heart be sustained?

Just me and you when things were new,

then the season's storms blew by.

   Did I forget to worship you?

 

Will you come, Lord Jesus to gather us- your sheep.

   For the days grow long and still,

If we watch and wait, will you hear us yet-

   Can we stand strong to do you will?

 

 The wheat has been blowing in that field,

   While the laborers are so few.

What then, now are we waiting for?

   Can hardened hearts become like new?

 

 Safely can we stay behind you,

   as we march with your trumpet sound?

Or- have we stayed and hid so long now,

   That our roots dry underground?

 

 I pray Lord that you will find me.

   I pray not to be ashamed.

I seek you when it's early Lord.

   I pray not to fall away.

 

So come Lord Jesus come quickly-

   The terrible day is at hand.

I pray we'll all be steadfast.

   So you may strengthen our spirits ,

as we stand.

Out of Control Al Superintendent Reigned In For Over-Reach Of $$ From Reading and Math Initiatives-Next Reign In Over Reach To Parents Rights Over Children--Support Scott Beason Bill To Repeal Common Core

Major monumental over-reach when State Board of Ed takes away parents input in their chidren's education by misrepresenting facts.  Al State Superintendent Tommy Bice needs to clarify what he calls as Alabama Common Core Standards that are supposedly owned by Alabama  when you understand the definition of Common Core (also it is clear from the NCLB waiver application that even though we did not win $$ through Race To The Top--we still signed on to Common Core Standards as part of waiver application.)

Simplified--Common Core State Standards are copyrighted and Alabama like the other states who signed on cannot change them--ony allowed to add 15 percent which will not be tested.

Another over reach and it is good to finally see the legislature reign in Superintendent Tommy Bice when he reached in to disperse funds that were already ear-marked.  That tells you Tommy Bice can be wrong to the point of going past what he is constitutionally allowed to do.  Common Core State Standards is another constitutional error on his part and we hope the Alabama Legislature will also correct that as parents are starting to learn that their parental rights over their children's education are being taken away.  They are learning the truth above that Common Core is copyrighted and as such Alabama will no longer have control over Alabama's standards and parents in Alabama are outraged (to put it mildly) when they find out.  There is a tidal wave coming as even in New York 1,539 principals are outraged at the results to their teachers and children of Common Core and all its testing and assessments.  Read more and get informed and share with your legislators so that they too will make the right stand.  Alabama parents constitutional rights must be protected.  End the over-reach as other states are also waking up and truth is shining (even though mainstream is behind--parents are the newsmakers).  Contact your legislators and read Elois Zeanah's (Pres of AFRW) warning.
