I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify him with thanksgiving. Psalm 69:30 We have so much to be thankful for each and every day. We have health and our needs are met. We have a home and comforts. We have food and necessities. We have two precious sons. We […]

Monday, November 24th, 2014

I was asked to review this book and said sure. I used to read a lot of business books in the days when I ran a brick and mortar store. I enjoy hearing how someone created their business and made it successful. This book  is mostly family story and I enjoyed learning about the Semprevivo […]

16 Months

Monday, November 10th, 2014

  This little guy is 16 months old already! I realized that I hadn’t shared a picture of him for awhile so I wanted to rectify that. He wasn’t very cooperative with the photo taking. He grabbed his bear and said “Bee uh” (how he pronounces bear). He was throwing it around and crawling all […]

Tuesday, November 4th, 2014

A guy from James’ youth group said to him the other day, “I hope it’s ok to ask, but do you have a dad?” James laughed! “Yes. He drives a semi and he’s not home a lot.” “Oh. ok!” James laughed while he was telling me this. He also laughed when he told me about […]
