last one of the year

I have to say I have missed blogging and since this is the last for the year I thought I would share a little about me and the last little while. I usually love the Holidays but this year I could have done with out them and I am relieved Christmas is over. I do not know why I had a sudden sadness come over me but I did and now I look forward to the coming year and hope that I accomplish more than this one. I miss my friend Reese so much and feel a little jipped (if that is a word) at not getting to see her while she is in The Dalles and that transporting stuff she was talking about would really come in handy now if only for a while.. anyway we my whole family including my hubby are3 going to church and we all love it I got him a Bible for Christmas and he reads it to us sometimes. well here is to all those that read this and those that don't have a safe and productive new year. God Bless

13 years and counting

I have a hard time believing that on Monday I will have been married for 13 yes 13 years only 2 years and 11 days after my friend Reese. the ups and downs and everything else seems unimportant compared to a commitment that has lasted for richer and poorer in sickness and health to reach a day that blows me away see we were engaged for 1 week and got married much to my friends distress she was not there and I will always be sorry not to have shared that day with her. it put a strain on us for along time but we made up and I love her more today than ever she is like a third sister to me. yes 13 years and counting lets see what the next 13 bring.

Krissy is 21 years old I work with her mom and I am heading up fundraisers to help the family with expenses Krissy gets dialysis every other day and the plasma is separated from her blood and the red blood cells put back in the antibodies in the plasma attack the kidneys and that is where she is now. A donation account has been set up in her name at Bank of the west. we had a car wash on Saturday and raised $1,357.42 only a drop in the bucket for the bills that are piling up all the prayer and support from anyone that chooses will be greatly appreciated. Krissy is not out of the woods she was released after 3 weeks in the hospital but she could still die if it gets to her lungs they will hemorrhage and there is not a whole lot they can do please pray for her and the family

I had a bad day yesterday God

I had a bad day yesterday God and I did not like it I yelled a bit and cried and even ignored the one thing to give peace. I had a bad day yesterday God and I am ready to say I am sorry instead of holeing up and being grumpy I should have basked in the sun with you. I had a bad day yesterday God and today is a little better with your hope and strength for tomorrow it will be brighter. I had a bad day yesterday God I ask for your wisdom so that each day from today on is filled with your guidance. forgive me God for the way I am and lend me a helping hand so that my tomorrow's are brighter. Teach me I am the clay and you are the potter I had a bad day yesterday but you made it better.

Thanks be to God

I am keeping this short and sweet but I have to say how good God is unfortunately we live pay check to pay check and it gets tight especially if I don't work. but today I went to check on my bank account to see what is going through and so on and I had way to much money in there and I started to worry my insurance did not take out my payment so I called them and asked. what I was worried about is my loan going through and then no money for my insurance because my loan is due Thursday. but low and behold the insurance company stopped all auto pays due to weather and the chance the people may not get to the bank but they. offered two choices one of which I jumped on either do a check over the phone which takes forever or pay it over the next eleven months the latter I took so I was able to pay my loan early and have a few extra dollars for gas and the pay check this week can go to putting me ahead on other bills I am thankful to God for providing a way to do it.

Dreams are a wish your heart makes

I love the movie that song came from but it really has been on my mind today Dreams are things we have as we grow they either happen or they don't. I am reminded that God gives us the desires of our hearts and if a dream is a wish our hearts make than they must be the desires of our hearts right? I am up in the air about that one. I have many dreams and I have yet to see one come true. the desires of my heart are well simple a home one I call my own maybe with some property and to be financially secure so money worries are not there. now I ask is that too much to ask for? I know that God has a plan and our dreams may not be in them but if He is going to give us our hearts desire than when can we expect that to happen. I know we cant rush God he does things in his time and He is never late. my desire is to know Him love Him and give my children the home and the place to play that they dream of so often I know I have been told you have to be specific when you pray and ask God for something. don't settle for second best because God may have had something Perfect in mind. so when I think about a dream is a wish your heart makes I want to think that God is waiting for the perfect time to make my dream come true.

How smart is your right foot?

This is crazy. Try it. I did it several times I got this in my email

How smart is Your Right Foot?? Just try this. It is from an

This will boggle your mind and you will keep trying over and over
again to see if you can outsmart your foot, but you can't. It's
preprogrammed in your Brain!

1. WITHOUT anyone watching you (they will think you are GOOFY......)
while sitting where you are at your desk in front of your computer,
your right foot off the floor and make clockwise circles.

2. Now, while doing this, draw the number

'6' in the air with your right hand.

Your foot will change direction.

I told you so!!! And there's nothing you can do about it!

You and I both know how stupid it is, but before the day is done you
going to try it again, if you've not already done so.

Send it to your friends and frustrate them too

Tag Your It Pass it on

Love ya!!!

One day a woman's husband died, and on that clear, cold morning, in the warmth of their bedroom, the wife was struck with the pain of learning that sometimes there isn't anymore. No more hugs, no more special moments to celebrate together, no more phone calls just to chat, no more "just one minute." Sometimes, what we care about the most gets all used up and goes away, never to return before we can say good-bye, say "I love you."

So while we have it . it's best we love it and care for it and fix it when it's broken ... .. and heal it when it's sick. This is true for marriage . and old cars .. and children with bad report cards and dogs with bad hips and aging parents and grandparents. We keep them because they are worth it, because we are worth it.

Some things we keep -- like a best friend who moved away or a classmate we grew up with. There are just some things that make us happy, no matter what.

Life is important, like people we know who are special. and so, We keep them close!

I received this from someone who thought I was a 'keeper'! Then I sent it to the people I think of in the same way. Now it's your turn to send this to all those people who are "keepers" in your life, including the person who sent it if you feel that way. Suppose one morning you never wake up, do all your friends know you love them?

I was thinking...I could die today, tomorrow or next week, and I wondered if I had any wounds needing to be healed, friendships that needed rekindling or three words needing to be said.

Let every one of your! friends know you love them. Even if you think they don't love you back, you would be amazed at what those three little words and a smile can do.

And just in case GOD calls me home .
I'm sssoooo glad
you're part of my life!

Live today to the fullest because tomorrow is not promised.

My soul sings

I am grateful I got to speak to my very best friend last night I am sorry I did not see her but I got to talk to her and for that my heart smiles. my friend and I have been friends for 22 years she is in Germany now but moving to England I miss her terribly and I do not get to talk to her often so when I do my day is brighter and my heart lighter and my soul sings. I am reminded that God wants us to feel that way about Him and more often than not we don't. I am making changes in my life and one is to hear my soul sing for God. I have the desire to have my heart shine with His love to all of the world and maybe in England too.
