My heavenly Father, as I enter this work place, I bring your presence with me. I speak your peace, your grace, your mercy, and your perfect order into this office. I acknowledge your power over all that will be spoken, thought, decided, and done within these walls. Lord, I thank you for the gifts you have blessed me with. I commit to using them responsibly in your honor. Give me a fresh supply of strength to do my job. Anoint my projects, ideas, and energy; so that even my smallest accomplishment may bring you glory. Lord when I am confused, guide me. When I am weary, energize me. When I am burned out, infuse me with the light of the Holy Spirit. May the work that I do and the way that I do it bring faith, joy and a smile to all I come in contact with today. And oh Lord, when I leave this place, give me traveling mercy. Bless my family and home to be in the order as I left it. Lord I thank you for everything you've done, everything you're doing and everything you're going to do. In the name of Jesus I pray with much love and Thanksgiving…… Amen
Drake, the Canadian singer, got his start as Drake, the actor on the TV show, Degrassi.
On the show, his character, Jimmy Brooks, was wheelchair-bound.
So a couple in Toronto, after reminiscing about Degrassi one night and seeing some handicapped signs, decided to create some stickers that put Drake's head on top of the stick figures in the wheelchairs.
It's called Draking, and the couple says they're doing it to make people smile.
Sure, technically it's vandalism, and sure, it's probably offensive, but if you're smiling...
Never mind. It's still wrong. But Drake thinks it's great. Go figure.
Things aren’t looking too rosy for the Secret Service today, as the agency’s director will have to answer questions in a congressional hearing on White House security measures.
This a day after it was revealed that the White House fence-jumper from two weeks ago actually got a lot further into the building than first reported. Turns out he overpowered an agent and made it to the East Room before anyone was able to stop him.
Another story released over the weekend suggests that it took the Secret Service about four days back in 2011 to realize that someone had fired a high-powered rifle at the White House.
If this weren’t so serious, it would be almost funny.
It’s almost like the Keystone Cops have been resurrected. Read about them here...
Amanda Bynes - another child actress who's having trouble becoming an adult - was arrested at 3 o'clock Sunday morning. According to the California Highway Patrol, she was "driving under the influence of a drug,"
Hers how they nabbed her. She stopped at a red light. But in the middle of an intersection.
An officer pulled her over, and noted her "disheveled appearance," suggesting that she was under the influence of some substance.
A drug recognition expert was called in - seriously, that's a job now? - and Amanda ended up getting bookedand then released on $15,000 bail.
Here's the thing: she's currently on probation. Which could mean that when she sees the judge in a month or so, she could end up doing time.
Check out this video of her making another court appearance last year, disguised as a Smurf.
