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.

« Mental Health Aspects of Common Core--Manipulating The Minds of Children | Main | »

Who Are Raising Concerns Against Common Core Beyond Tea Partiers, Conspiracy Theorists etc.--Resolutions and More--Study Them

There has been so much said about those who are opposing Common Core.  Some have described them as conspiracy theorists, white suburban moms (per Arne Duncan), right wingers, Tea partiers etc.

Here are some that are staunch defenders of values.  Let's take a look and then you decide.  Hopefully you will see that all sorts of people as color does not matter, party does not matter and even teachers and Superintendents are making a stand.  All for the the love of children.

For example in Alabama:

  • Two of Alabama's State Board of Education members--Betty Peters and Stephanie Bell whose vigilance against lies and corruption are speaking out tirelessly against Common Core. They were the only two board members that exposed Alabama State Board of Ed Chancellor Roy Johnson that was subsequently fired and tried along with 14 others, including a state representative; the case resulted in charges, guilty pleas or convictions of all 15.  Their record speaks volumes.
  • Alabama Baptist Convention passed a Resolution on November 2013 over their concerns about the Common Core Initiative and warns parents to be more involved and vigilant in what is going on in their child's education.

I am sure in each state there are staunch defenders of children and family such as those above.  Here are some the whole nation needs to look at and pay attention to:

  • The RNC (Republican National Committee) in April of 2013 passed a Resolution which says "RESOLVED, the Republican National Committee recognizes the CCSS for what it is — an inappropriate overreach to standardize and control the education of our children so they will conform to a preconceived “normal,”...
  • 3,500 Principals in New York Speaking Out Against The Testings and Its Effect on Students & Teachers
  • 500 Early Childhood and Education Professionals warning about "conflict with compelling new research in cognitive science, neuroscience, child development, and early childhood education about how young children l earn, what they need to learn, and how best to teach them in kindergarten and the early grades.
