My family had given some beautiful gifts this year for my birthday. David gave me a new camera to carry in purse instead of carrying around my big one. Sarah gave me gift certificate & money to have my nails done. Lydia, Philip & kids gave me a new purse. My SIL Tomi & BIL Bob gave me a beautiful blue wallet, necklace and skin care from Crabtree & Evelyn.
Yesterday we were coming back from Fayetteville and it started raining. The rain had slowed down to a mist and we had saw this beautiful rainbow in the sky. The picture doesn't due it justice. The colors were so intense. It is amazing how God reminds that he loves us by giving us simplest things of pleasure.
Scrapbooking is a passion of mine. I have been scrapping for 10 years now. I love to find interesting sites on the web for scrapbookers. Last week on a newsletter I received from one my favorites sites, they had advertised about 52 Sketches. Of course I had to check it out. They have team of people that comes up with a sketch each week. They challenge everyone to see what they can do with the sketch. I wanted to share my take on the sketch. For anyone that loves to scrapbook check out this site. It's pretty cool.
David had surgery on his left knee today. He had torn his ligament. David wrote on his knees to make sure they would work on the right one. I didn't have much time before they would take him into surgery, I had to work fast on taking pictures. I wonder how long it will take for the writing to ware off.
David has his pain medicine and he is feeling no pain. He told to get more and put it in my purse. He didn't remember anything that he did. He was so funny.
It didn't take long before David was out like a light. David is going off to surgery.
I have this love/hate relationship with spring. I know everyone loves spring right, but I will be honest with you. Spring and I have had this relationship going on for years and sometimes it not pretty. Welcome to my world.
The things I LOVE about spring. 1) The warmer weather 2) Daylight longer 3) Birds singing 4) Flowers 5) Everything turning green 6) It just makes me happy the list can go on and on.
What I HATE about spring. 1) My allergies (I'm allergic to grass. I'm always coughing, sneezing and my nose will run all the time. Its not a pretty sight. Did I also mention it breaks me out?) 2) Pollen (The nasty yellow stuff on everything and it also aggravates my allergies.) 3) Tornadoes (No one likes them.) 4) SNAKES!!!! and SPIDERS!!!! ( I am extremely terrified of snakes.)
I had taken these pictures of our trees before last weeks nasty weather. I love the blooms on them. We are expecting great weather this week. This coming Friday is the first day of spring. Happy Spring Everyone!
The other day I was doing a search for a chore list and I came across one that I like. The person that design the list had it listed on their blog. I was looking over the site and I saw something that looked very interesting. There was another blog and the name was Building an Ark in Singapore. The blog belong to a Christian Chinese woman that was a SAHM. She also has another blog that I even enjoyed reading more. The name of that blog is Building Up Moms. The blog is targeted towards new Moms and ones that have been a Mom for awhile. She addresses a lot of topics that Moms has to deal with everyday. I have listed the blog sites in my blog list. I'm sure you will enjoy reading them too.
My husband David and I have been happily married for 26 years. After 20 years, we closed the doors on our construction business and went full time in the ministry. My husband is a pastor of a small but wonderful country church. I'm blessed to work along aside of him and trying to be a blessing to others.
This blog is meant to give my family and friends updates on our little family. Even though life tends keep us very busy, my message is to let each and everyone of you know that we are thinking about you.
