For in him we live (zao {dzah'-o}, and move, and have our being; Acts 17:28

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.

When Will Legislators Such As Jabo Waggoner Stand Up For Children First

Alabama's State Senator Jabo Waggoner was the only one out of seven that spoke up standing up for State Board of Education decision on Common Core. 


Contact info for your legislator: By zip code


I guess he along with Governor Bentley, Del Marsh and many others have not heard the following:

along with this from Arkansas mom


Tommy Bice, Board of Ed Sup., lied to Alabamians as Tommy Bice passed a Resolution to get us out of Common Core through dissolution of Memorandum of Agreement when he had already received word from Legal Counsel (that MOA carried no legal obligation) was superseded by Alabama's College and Career Ready Standards.


Can the people who voted for him please let him know your children are important.  Most Alabamians finding out the truth about Common Core, are tired of their children (and teachers) being abused by the Common Core planners and are ready for their legislators to get things done.  Please, Mr. Jabo Waggoner wake up as Obamacore is destructive like Obamacare and more are finding out.  We are tired of the children being the punching bags in lieu of someones $$$$$$$.  Enough is enough. 

Here's food for thought from one former County School Board Member about the Common Core:

Common Core is Rotten to the Core
By:  Annette Griswold

Neal McCluskey, of Cato Institute said it right when he said, “There is a revolution happening, and people probably don’t even know it.  While we worry about wars, spills, bailouts, Washington has been quietly taking over our schools.  Amazingly, almost no one has heard about it; and that is exactly what standardizers want.  Stealth is essential for the proponents of Common Core to succeed.”

There are many reasons why the Common Core curriculum in schools is “rotten to the core.”
It will cost Alabama taxpayers over $282 million just to implement not to mention additional costs each year.  It takes away parental rights to their children’s education.  Common Core calls for unprecedented monitoring, collection and sharing of private student and family information.

 Common Core stifles teachers’ flexibility in classrooms.  Teachers become “agents of change” which John Dewey, the socialist “father of modern education,” intended for public schools. This was a deliberate attempt to change history and the thought patterns of our children. Children’s personal and intimate information, that has nothing to do with academics, will be “data-mined” and shared with the federal government and private organizations without parents’ permission. They will be tracked from preschool through the workforce. 

Thomas Sowell, senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, had this to say about Common Core, “The new history books no longer give attention to the great men who founded this country, but include what looks bad for our country.  Howard Zinn’s book A People’s History of the United States degrades our American history to a lower level than the Communist newspapers in the days of the Soviet Union. American schools today are similarly undermining American society as one unworthy of defending, either domestically or internationally.”  It is sad that our president apologizes for our nation’s defense of freedom worldwide.

Bill Gates profits from Common Core because of the technology involved.  Certain publishing companies who print the literature also profit from this.  It is about the “love of money” not about love for our country or love for our children.  Cursive writing will become a thing of the past.  Children will not be able to read the original U.S. Constitution and our national Bill of Rights as both documents are written in cursive.  Legal documents require cursive signatures.

Common Core literature, for high-school students, include smut books such as The Bluest Eyes, by Toni Morrison and Dreaming in Cuba, by Christina Garcia.  Books such as these break down moral barriers for our youth. 

So, what can we do?  Become informed, involved, and in prayer. Be informed by looking up information on websites on Common Core education.  David Barton, Founder and President of Wallbuilders,  a national pro-family organization that presents America’s forgotten history and heroes, with an emphasis on moral, religious and constitutional heritage, will be at Calvary Baptist Church in Dothan on January 18, 2014, at 6:00 p.m. Admission is free.

 Be involved.  Find out how your elected officials stand on this issue.  Insist that they repeal the Common Core curriculum in Alabama schools. If they do nothing, remind them that election day is coming.

 Be connected with your children’s schools.  Teachers have their hands tied and need our support.  Know what your children are being taught.  Although we have the greatest teachers in the greatest schools in this area, we must stand in the gap for our children.  They are our future.  The old saying, “garbage in, garbage out’ should not apply to our children’s mind development.  We must work together to make “rotten-to-the-core” Common Core “uncommon” in our local schools.

Be in prayer.  The effectual, fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much, James 5:16.

                    Annette Griswold, a former member of the Coffee
                    County Board of Education
