Tonight Lifetime will premiere a new reality show, Preachers Daughter. Last month TLC aired a 6 week series, The Sisterhood featuring the lives of pastor’s wives (first ladies). That show was a hot mess, but the ladies were adults, but this new Lifetime series will be looking at the lives of teens and that is a very different story. it starts tonight so the jury is out on whether this will also be a hot mess.

Jmyha Rickman, an 8 year old girl arrested and taken to jail for having tantrum at school…did the police go too far?
Jmyha Rickman had a tantrum at school. She has had tantrums before but this time the police were called to the school. by her family’s account she had her hands and her feet cuffed and she was taken to jail, but did Rickman exhibit bad behavior or criminal behavior? Should her parents have been called prior to law enforcement? What do you think?
Destiny’s Child performed to the delight of Super Bowl fans, but RB Singer Keisha Cole took to Twitter to take a swipe at Michelle Williams. Recently Kelly Rowland took a swipe at Keisha Cole. Last month Fantasia was unhappy about a photo that Jet magazine used of her on their cover. Fantasia took to Instagram to express her displeasure. Jet magazine issued an apology to Fantasia, but then Jet magazine editor in chief Mitzi Miller took her Facebook page to lament about wasting an hour of her day writing a press release to a woman (Fantasia) who could not read. Miller has since apologized. Pop star Taylor Swift has chastised Amy Poehler and Tina Fey regarding a joke they made about her at the Golden Globe awards regarding Michael J. Fox’ son and Swift. “You know, Katie Couric is one of my favorite people,” Taylor Swift told Vanity Fair when asked about the incident (and mean girls—not to be mistaken for Mean Girls—in general). “Because she said to me she had heard a quote that she loved that said, ‘There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women.” So why can’t women be friends? Is this a woman thing or just a mean thing? Share your thoughts.
Yes, you read it correctly this post is about the Bieber. I read the linked story about the pop star Justin Bieber arriving 2 hours late for a concert in London. Why does this concern me? Because I am a mom, and we jam our schedules with kid related events, and I am sure moms took their little darlings to this concert, and moms simply don’t have 2 hours to waste. I want people to respect my time because I can’t get wasted time back. Years ago my husband took me to a New Year’s Eve concert and the headliner was Alexander O’Neal (who) trust me he had a brief brush with fame, and the brevity probably could be attributed to his cavalier attitude toward time. It was a midnight concert and he came after 2AM. The crowd was angry and he had an attitude because we were angry. Now if you mention his name few people even know him. Cut to the Bieber. If he keeps this up he will be a footnote, sure he will be bigger than O’neal, but a footnote nevertheless.

FROM ASSOCIATED PRESS: Chicago has logged its 500th homicide of 2012. The last time the city reached the 500-homicide mark was in 2008, when the year ended with 512 killings. Last year, city records show Chicago had 435 homicides. On Thursday, officials with the Chicago Police Department said the city was one homicide away from the 500 mark. Hours later, a 40-year-old man was fatally shot in the Austin neighborhood on the city’s West Side. Police say Nathaniel Jackson was found on the sidewalk outside a convenience store with a gunshot wound to the head late Thursday. The Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office says Jackson was pronounced dead at Stroger Hospital early Friday. Jackson’s death remains under investigation. No arrests have been made.

For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believe on him shall not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16
This is the premise of Christmas. God loves us and he sent his son so that we might be save, but he also gave us freewill so it is our choice to accept or reject the gift. This real spirit of Christmas has almost been lost in the fog of commercialism. The other night I watched the Peanuts Christmas special. It was made in 1965 and even then Charlie Brown was lamenting the over commercialization of Christmas. If that was an issue over 40 years ago then 2012 has truly jumped the shark. We have more, but we still want more. I am not advocating a “no” gift Christmas. I love giving and receiving, but who are we giving presents to? Is it our family of four and no more? I found it interesting that in light of the Newtown tragedy people were sending gifts to the town. So many gifts that the village of Newtown had to tell people to stop sending them, but it is ironic that there are people in every town and every city in need. There are children who would love a teddy bear in every urban city and every small town. Charity begins at home and then it spreads abroad. Ordinary people have the ability to do extraordinary things, but they have to be willing to try. So this year I hope you celebrate the real reason for the season, and I encourage you to spread a little love to all that you encounter today.
