Two Michigan police officers are being hailed for making the decision to buy a car seat for a family in need instead of citing the child’s parents.

Officers Jason Pavlige and James Hodges of Fruitport Township, Michigan, responded to a dispatch call reporting a woman at a local McDonalds holding a baby in her arms in a car’s passenger seat.

The officers observed a minor traffic violation and pulled over the driver, also the father of the 10-month-old girl, on the violation, Hodges, 26, a nearly two-year veteran of the force, told ABC News.

When the officers spoke with the parents, who were not identified, they quickly realized they did not have the resources to purchase a car seat for their daughter.

“They had just recently moved to the area,” Hodges said. “We tried to have them contact family but they don’t have anyone…

Share A Laugh-Florida Court Sets Atheist Holy Day

Quote Of The Day — April 01, 2015

 

FLORIDA COURT SETS ATHEIST HOLY DAY

In Florida, an atheist created a case against the upcoming Easter and Passover Holy days. He hired an attorney to bring a discrimination case against Christians and Jews and observances of their holy days. The argument was that it was unfair that atheists had no such recognized days.

The case was brought before a judge. After listening to the passionate presentation by the lawyer, the judge banged his gavel declaring,”Case dismissed!”

The lawyer immediately stood objecting to the ruling saying, “Your honor, How can you possibly dismiss this case? The Christians have Christmas, Easter and others. The Jews have Passover, Yom Kippur and Hanukkah, yet my client and all other atheists have no such holidays.”

The judge leaned forward in his chair saying, “But you do. Your client, Counsel, is woefully ignorant.”

The lawyer said, “Your Honor, we are unaware of any special observance or holiday for atheists.”

The judge said, “The calendar says April 1st is April Fools Day. Psalm 14:1 states, ‘The fool says in his  heart, there is no God.’ Thus, it is the opinion of this court, that if your client says there is no God, then he is a fool. Therefore, April 1st is his day. Court is adjourned.”

Do you lash out in anger…
or hold all your hurt within.
Or do you put all struggles on Facebook…
waiting for the comments to pour in.
For we all react to stress…
in a very different way.
But do we think first…
being careful what we do or say.

          Jesus Comes to Jerusalem as King

          Matthew 21:1-11

          1 As they approached Jerusalem and came to Bethphage on the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two disciples, 2 saying to them, “Go to the village ahead of you, and at once you will find a donkey tied there, with her colt by her. Untie them and bring them to me. 3 If anyone says anything to you, say that the Lord needs them, and he will send them right away.”

          4 This took place to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet:

          5 “Say to Daughter Zion,

          ‘See, your king comes to you,

          gentle and riding on a donkey,

          and on a colt, the foal of a donkey.’”

          6 The disciples went and did as Jesus had instructed them. 7 They brought the donkey and the colt and placed their cloaks on them for Jesus to sit on. 8 A very large crowd spread their cloaks on the road, while others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. 9 The crowds that went ahead of him and those that followed shouted,

          “Hosanna to the Son of David!”

          “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”

          “Hosanna in the highest heaven!”

          10 When Jesus entered Jerusalem, the whole city was stirred and asked, “Who is this?”

          11 The crowds answered, “This is Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth in Galilee.”
