16 years for murder?

I just do not understand how things work with the legal system. Not too long ago a friend of mine lost her baby girl, her 2 year old daughter was murdered by her then boyfriend. He was also a policeman. Not the kind of person you would think could do such a thing, but he did. He said she just wouldn't stop crying. It was so sad, and still is.
He had his trial yesterday. He ONLY got 16 years for taking that sweet baby's life. 16. That's it. There are people that spend their whole life in prison over drugs or armed robbery, but this guy, this ex-cop, only got 16 years for KILLING a precious little girl. It turns my stomach. Seriously.
Now, maybe Im so upset over this because I knew that baby girl, but it is just disturbing to me. He also is not going to be put in with the general public, because he is a cop. I just do not understand it.
It's just not fair. Thats all.

Organization and Motivation???

I need help.
I have no energy, and my house is a mess.
I can deal with it being messy sometimes, but we have WAY too much stuff. Its everywhere! My husband is a collector, he collects everything you can think of. It makes me crazy! Our crawlspace is packed, and over flowing. The basement looks like the crawlspace does, and all the junk has worked its way upstairs. Im going crazy.
Im surrounded by CRAP!! (a little over-dramatic there!) :)
Im not saying some of its not mine, because I have my fair share of junk, but somethings gotta give! Everytime I talk about getting rid of anything, he freaks out!
How can I convince him to let go of some of it?
How can I organize things so I dont feel like Im surrounded by crap all the time??
I cant wait til this spring, Im having a massive garage sale, and if I have to tie him up to do so then I will! I'll just have to tie him up while he's sleeping!
Motivate me to do something in the mean time! Please give me your tips, I need them!

Let it go!!

Let it go for 2009...
By T. D.

Jakes

There are people who can walk away from you.



And hear me when I tell you this! When people can walk
away from you: let them walk.


I don't want you to try to talk another person into
staying with you, loving you, calling you, caring about you, coming to
see you, staying attached to you. I mean hang up the phone.



When people can walk away from you let them walk.


Your destiny is never tied to anybody that left.



The bible said that, they came out from us
that it might be made manifest that they were not for
us.

For had they been of us, no doubt they would have
continued with us.

[1 John 2:19]

People leave you because they are not joined to you.


And if they are not joined to you, you can't make them stay.



Let them go.




And it doesn't mean that they are a bad person it just
means that their part in the story is over.

And you've got
to know when people's part in your story is over so that you don't keep
trying to raise the dead.



You've got to know when it's dead.



You've got to know when it's over.

Let me tell you
something. I've got the gift of good-bye.

It's the tenth spiritual gift, I
believe in good-bye.

It's not that I'm hateful, it's that I'm
faithful, and I know whatever God means for me to have He'll give it to me.


And if it takes too much sweat I don't need it. Stop begging people to stay.



Let them go!!

If you are holding on to something that doesn't belong
to you and was never intended for your life, then you need to......

LET IT GO!!!

If you are holding on to past hurts and pains .....

LET IT GO!!!

If someone can't treat you right, love you back, and
see your worth.....

LET IT GO!!!

If someone has angered you ........

LET IT GO!!!

If you are holding on to some thoughts of evil and revenge......

LET IT GO!!!

If you are involved in a wrong relationship or addiction......

LET IT GO!!!

If you are holding on to a job that no longer meets your needs or talents ....

LET IT GO!!!

If you have a bad attitude.......

LET IT GO!!!

If you keep judging others to make yourself feel better......

LET IT GO!!!

If you're stuck in the past and God is trying to take

you to a new level in Him......

LET IT GO!!!

If you are struggling with the healing of a broken
relationship.......

LET IT GO!!!

If you keep trying to help someone who won't even try
to help themselves......

LET IT GO!!!

If you're feeling depressed and stressed .......

LET IT GO!!!

If there is a particular situation that you are so
used to handling yourself

and God is saying "take your hands off of it,"

then you need to......

LET IT GO!!!

Let the past be the past. Forget the former things.


GOD is doing a new thing for 2009!!!



LET IT GO!!!



Get Right or Get Left
.. think about it, and then ....

LET IT GO!!!
