    Does anyone really like to exercise? I keep trying to convince myself that I do!

    We are getting snow today and tomorrow, want me to send you some.

I am with you girl, I do not like to exercise. Don't get me wrong once I start I am ok, but NEVER look forward to it.

Happy New Year!

    I don't like exercise, but once I get into the groove of it, it's easier. then busy happens all over again. What helps is it is a stress buster and having an iPod shuffle to get me through it.

Happy New Year!

  Hey Darlene! No snow here but there is some nasty rain and it is soooo cold! Like 60 degrees! Lol!

Sure missed you for Christmas. I kept an ear open for those loud pipes. Maybe next year huh?! Hope you had a good one.

    Happy New Year to you! Good for you for walking that mall and keeping in mind that the bike is for tomorrow. I hate exercise too, but I know that it is really good for me. Today I went to the beach and just walked around. I live in Southern California and we had a beautiful day. It was kind of cool (for California), but I actually saw some folks laying in the sun. Go figure!

This is to wish each of you, who hold a special place in my heart, a very
MERRY CHRISTMAS.....all of my friends on Spark who have been such a
huge blessing to me.......

Jesus is the Reason for the Season. He has blessed me in many ways, David
is well, I am doing okay, the friends I support with prayers and just love or
moral support, my kids are good............

so if I may ask all of you to pray for
our son, DANIEL, who was deployed to Afghanistan this week. He is located
in a seriously HOT area and his area of expertise is EOD, which if there are
some of you who do not know what that is..............is Explosive Ordinance.
Daniel is a good man, a devoted husband and father of 3. Pray for all of his
group please?????

I am awaiting the mailman, then we are going to walk at the mall and then get
some coffee and people watch, then home to bake for the CowboyChurch potluck
this evening, then will be home later to sit by the computer&TV(remember back
in the old days, when you sat by a roaring fire)?????? LOL

Wishing each of you, who have touched my life in a special way, a loving and
beautiful Christmas.

Merry Christmas, and Gods' best blessings on you&yours in the coming year.

Much love,
Darlene and David

THIS YEAR", honest......................... emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Okay, where are we all meeting up for the Christmas party this
year, and who among us is bringing the punch???? LOL

Just a note to my friends, I seriously wish we could all get together
somewhere....I have a super recipe for a hot punch my daughter makes
for me when we go up there for the holidays. Love it....

We could just all bring a dish and have a potluck????? Anybody wanna
come???? I am laughing here, because we have people from all over the
USA and England and Canada who are friends and I know we could just
have a ball..........

Well, enough daydreaming....we are having a Christmas potluck at the
Cowboy Church Christmas Eve, gonna sing carols, eat, and fellowship and
still be home by 630 for family times.

This morning we had a pancake breakfast, with sausage, hash brown casserole,
and scrambled eggs, milk, chocolate milk, OJ, tea and coffee and several ladies
brought home made cookies, which looked good but I passed on.....The bldg.
was full and we had so much fun..........

Wish ya'll could have been there............
Wish we were close enough to visit....this is what troubles me during the holidays
is being so far away from everyone.....(just in case ya'll wondered)

Merry Christmas to all ya'll,

Wedding pictures are in

Wednesday, December 08, 2010

For those of you who want to see some of the wedding pictures,
I posted them today. I am going to have to go thru and delete
some of my older pics if I put anymore on, so we shall see how
it goes. I hope to post some more that were taken outside so
you can see the fabulous view from the front porch.

The house was built in 1855, and it even has a widows walk up on
the roof. Most of the windows have stained glass in them. It is a
fabulous place for a wedding.

I am off to finish addressing my Christmas cards...hope you enjoy
the pictures.

UPDATE on prayer request

Saturday, November 27, 2010

First, I want to thank each of you who prayed and left a note, so those are the ones

I am so grateful to each of you for praying and letting me know you are there, holding
me up, as I do each of you. You, each of you, are what keeps me going in the right
I ask God to bless each of you in whatever way you need, and in such a way you know
it is from Him.
In Jesus' name, Amen.
