One day things seem wonderful and the next day it can crumble right in front of our eyes.   The economy has caused many to go over the deep end and it affects all involved.   It is a good time to put our trust in the Lord and focus on Him.  Life beats us down yet the beat down may stem from our bad judgement with our finances.   All Americans need to try to simplify their lives and focus less on greed and more on need.   The government is trying to control our lives with Healthcare and with a possible government banking.   This will take away our freedom and other Countries have tried this and it has not worked.  Let us pray for our Country and President Obama and that God have mercy on us all.
