GA Gov Nathan Deal declares Emergency ahead of Winter Storm to hit State:

“A state of emergency has been declared for the following North Georgia counties: Catoosa, Dade, Dawson, Fannin, Gilmer, Habersham, Lumpkin, Murray, Pickens, Rabun, Towns, Union, Walker, White and Whitfield. The order notes that in these counties forecasts call for ice accumulation and moderately high wind gusts that could bring down tree limbs. In an effort to minimize the number of afternoon commuters, I have directed state agency heads to close state offices in the 15 affected counties as well as on Capitol Hill, with the exception of all essential and emergency personnel. State employees in these areas are encouraged to telecommute. ” -Gov Deal

ALL MY NORTH GA FRIENDS BUNDLE UP!

Barry Hazle, one of the very few atheists in prison cells, was imprisoned for drug possession. A crime open to debate if it should even be illegal, but anyway, after he was released and put on parole (in California) he was re-arrested for asking for a secular treatment program for his addiction, instead of the religious  Narcotics Anonymous.

Even though he was attending these classes while asking his parole agent to get a secular class, he was arrested during one of the meetings.

He got a hefty settlement for this illegal imprisonment.

If Christians had to attend treatment centers based around the Islamic Quran or Allah, or readings of atheist books, I think they would be unhappy.

Well atheists don’t like the government forcing them to participate in Christian (or religious in general) activities.

By the way, I hope this probation agent was fired soon after, but he probably still is working that job.

I will be friends with Bethany forever. She is one of the most generous, kind, and genuine people I know. Her smile lights up a room and her laughter is contagious. We met in college and it doesn’t matter how long it’s been since we’ve talked or seen each other - it never seems like any time has passed. I love that about our friendship. 

I had the honor of photographing Bethany and Louie’s wedding. My friend was SUCH a beautiful bride. The love that Bethany and Louie share is so special. You could see and feel it all throughout the day! More photos to come, but here are some of my favorites! Enjoy!

Not all of us came off slave ships. Most of us were already here. When the Colony of Georgia expanded westward in the 1750s, some Yamassee stayed put in southern South Carolina, while most Yamassee moved southward and westward. Those that moved westward joined the Creek Confederacy, while others were assimilated into northern cities in Georgia. The constant migration forced by slavehunting made Indians join other tribes across the South for protection and some eventually became known as “freedmen.” When in 1763, Great Britain was awarded Florida from its victory in the Seven Years War, some Yamacraw and Yamassee moved further south into Florida. After living with the English for about 25 years they decided they had enough of them, dissatisfied with the English Traders/English Colony of South Carolina and fed up with land encroachment by Europeans, the trading system, trader abuses, the Indian slave trade, the depletion of deer, increasing Indian debts, the Yamassee Indians organized a multi-national Indian federation to fight back against the British Colonists. This Indian Federation included over at least 19,000 indigenous people from the Yamassee, Creek, Cherokee, Chickasaw, Catawba, Apalachee, Apalachicola, Uchee, Savannah River Shawnee, Congaree, Waxhaws, Pee Dee, Cape Fear, Cheraw, and other indigenous Nations. The Yamassee, Choctaw, Oconee, Apalachee, and Uchee became the Seminoles. Since all those aboriginal tribes were originally negroes, they’re now “African slaves” that became the Seminole. #AmericaIsABlackWoman
