II Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Give me a Buh-Rake!

If you have children and they received any kind of toys for Christmas--you WILL agree with me....the tape and wires on toys now-a-days is OUT OF CONTROL!! Seriously...what are they trying to prevent? Maybe it's to teach delayed gratification?? But then that wouldn't make sense in our world of instant-this and magic-that. All I know is after the kids had their gift-opening frenzy, every adult had to sit and pry and cut and un-twist and even un-screw the plastic tags and wires and screws that connected their toys to the boxes. Since I had the pleasure of "freeing" up 3 different Bratz dolls among many other toys, I have decided that the Bratz dolls are the worst. Even their hair is sewed down to the box. My finger tips are raw and sore from all the ripping and prying (I should have gotten up and gotten scissors--lesson learned there.) Anyway, I'm almost absolutely certain you will all agree with me on this..but just to be sure...let me know what you think. What is the reasoning behind it all? What's next? Some kind of padlock with a security code you have to enter?

YEAH!! We got the pleasure of that experience as well! I don't understand how that can be 'cost effective' for them to use all that wire and junk!! UGH!!
