Luis didn't get deported-- do you think he should have? The story of Luis-

So the first headline I hear when I walk in the door this evening was -- Luis gets to stay in the US.  Hmm who is Luis and why does he get to STAY was what I was asking-- so I watched and listened- Tell me what you think.  I am going to cut to the chase-

Luis was arrested in 2011 for having a expired license and running a red light.  Luis has wife and 3 children-- "they wanted him to stay"-- Luis wanted to stay in the US and not be DEPORTED back to Mexico.  His children are American Citizens, he works construction all week and then he volunteers at Habitat for Humanity on weekends.  Today he was granted the opportunity to stay here- was given a green card and can apply for citizenship in 5 years.    He had a huge rally of support from his local community and his attorney said "he is a good guy-- he works hard". 

So should Luis be able to stay?  Is it ok to break the law and bend the rules "if you are a good guy?" Is it ok that his children age 16 months to 9 years had to worry about their dad going back to his HOME Mexico?

Courting vs Dating -so excited for Jessa Duggar- @revellkatiti you will love this-

I have absolutely loved following the DUGGAR family over the years.  So many say-- they are crazy-- then there are those that say it would never be me.  Well I can probably agree that it would never be me, but God didn't call me to do it-- He called them to do it.  I love that they are SELF SUFFICIENT-- depend on themselves to pay bills-- require the family to work as a unit and home school the children.  The 19+ children isn't for everyone, but it works for THEM.  They don't require the government to pay for their housing, their bills, the schooling or raising of their children-- that in itself in 2013 says alot-- they do it OLD SCHOOL!!!! Bible School--  

I was just super excited to see that Babygirl #3 is COURTING and not dating-- look at the difference. So what are the differences between courtship and dating?

Jim Bob explains: "Courting is getting to know each other in a group setting, both families spending time together and the couple setting goals together to determine if they are meant to marry. With dating, a couple will often pair off alone and that sometimes leads to a more physical relationship."

Jessa and Ben met in church, Jim Bob says, and then asked to correspond via text and on the phone. The Duggars agreed – and were kept in the conversation as the couple texted each other, mostly asking each other questions about theology and scripture.

"Jessa has a very steady personality," says Michelle. "It has been interesting to watch their interactions because for her personality type, they share very similar beliefs. It has been fun to watch them and both of our phones are going off back and forth, ping, ping, ping."

"Courtship is not just about having fun," she continues. "You are really considering if this person could be your life partner – you pray about it and see what happens."

Though other men have approached Jim Bob to ask if they could begin a relationship with Jessa – as well as his other older daughters – Jim Bob says that Ben is the first to make the cut.

"He's the first one she has shown interest in that has a spiritual focus and legitimate calling about ministry work," he says. "When a guy is pursing your daughter, you want to check him out and see if there are any red flags and with Ben, there hasn't been. He is very sharp. It appears like a match made in heaven."-- from +PEOPLE,,20735445,00.html
