  1. Oh my, the synchronized swimmer had me in stitches! How funny! Barbara, I’m with you as far as the Dugger controversy. I’ve seen a few of the shows but not a strong follower but I grieve for the whole situation. The secular world has been on the alert for a long time to catch this family in something and now it’s a feeding frenzy. I’m praying for the family and the whole situation. Very thought provoking links here. Have a blessed weekend.

  2. Thanks for these links. Always enlightening. Very funny video 🙂 Very sad situation for the Duggars. Many in the media are acting irresponsibly in this case and have ulterior motives to “bring the family down.” Praying for them.
