WalMart and the GLBT agenda

GLBT = gay/lesbian/bisexual/transgendered

Walmart has recently stepped up its involvement in the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce. The following links are for your information, so you can get your info from “the horses mouths.” Do the research and draw your own conclusions. I’m not bossing anyone around on this. 🙂

So…

Here is where the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce Announces Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. Membership

Here is Walmart’s brief comment about it on their website

Here is Walmart’s list of diversity organizations they work with from 2005. This showed me that they been involved with the NGLCC for a while; this year they just stepped up their commitment

Here and here are a couple of news stories on the stepped-up membership.

In related news, here is the press release from Boise State University about their Diversity Week (this week, actually). It lists the sponsors and events. It’s a must-read, in my opinion. This is where the “agenda” part of this becomes more obvious.

So… there’s some information for you do with it as you are led.

A new twist…

I love this piece on Psalm 23. I got it from a new friend on the EBCAlumni.net site.

The Lord is my Shepherd
That’s Relationship!

I shall not want
That’s Supply!

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures.
That’s Rest!

He leadeth me beside the still waters.
That’s Refreshment!

He restoreth my soul
That’s Healing!

He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness.
That’s Guidance!

For His name sake
That’s Purpose!

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death.
That’s Testing!

I will fear no evil.
That’s Protection!

For Thou art with me
That’s Faithfulness!

Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me,
That’s Discipline!

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of my enemies.
That’s Hope!

Thou anointest my head with oil,
That’s Consecration!

My cup runneth over.
That’s Abundance!

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my
life.
That’s Blessing!

And I will dwell in the house of the Lord.
That’s Security!

Forever.
That’s Eternity!

Okay, not quite back to work

I’m liking that purple texture on the sides of my blog more and more. I’d like to find a template that I could incorporate that purple background into. Maybe I need to look back through the free templates I’ve been looking at with that in mind…

Okay, really back to work now.

Busy with Office Stuff

I’m working lots this week in the office, getting papers filed and pitched, taking care of phone calls I’ve been avoiding, stuff like that. Strange, these are the things that I tend to procrastinate about, and yet, when the office is clean and tidy, I feel sooo good. Makes me wonder why I avoid it.

Back to work…

Happy “Get Organized Week”

While preparing our chapel calendar for October, I learned that the first week in October is Get Organized Week.

So, what are your organizational plans?

Do you have any organization tips or helps to share?

On my projects list for this week –
**Finish switching out seasonal clothes (doing this in the fall, by the way, is a sure-fire way to get warmer weather. My apologies to those in the St Louis area who aren’t thrilled about the brief return of summer – it’s suposed to get up to 90 today!)

**Work in the office, clearing clutter and getting things filed.

**Get the huge load of give-away stuff to the Agape House and out of my house!

**Possibly – work more on going through the toys in the garage.

Organizational Tips? One word – Flylady.

Off to tackle the office counter…
