I saw this on Facebook yesterday–Wow! Very powerful–please take a couple minutes to watch this testimony. Reverse Thinking A fun online vintage candy store.

Checking Us Out

A parole officer came by my house the other day. She called and set up an appointment. It seems she wanted to decide if our home is approved for Lee to live here.I think she was looking for guns, drugs, and alcohol~phew didn’t find any! We have no idea of the time table or if […]

Just an FYI

Thursday, March 10th, 2011

I took this photo of my loose ring last fall right before I had to buy those plastic snuggy things. It’s just now starting to get loose with the snuggie–not quite but it’s not snug. Very exciting I must say! Today, I took it into the jewelry store to have it cleaned. My neighbor lady […]

If God Loves Me?…~Repost

Friday, March 4th, 2011

So many times we look at our problems and say “If God loves me why doesn’t he do this?” or “If God loved me he wouldn’t allow this.” I listened this week to a seminar from a woman who had suffered greatly. The following sentence stuck with me this week: Calvary’s cross forever removes the […]
