WE ARE SHARING EACH OTHER'S LIVES!!!!!! So I want to thank:GILDA, WENDY, LAURAJEAN, ROSEANNE AND KIM for having a part of my life that I treasure and RACHEL,AND DEBBIE,TOO [though they couldn't make it!]!!!You ladies are precious and the kids too!!~~{Only 6 Ema was there!]
What was FUN,too [besides gettimg to use a cartridge I don't have~Tie The Knot~ !] ,was setting up a little stash of goodies @ each place setting! Just a few goodies~A Scrapbook magazine ,a "coupon" for 2 papers from my Storytellers [scrapbook kit club] collection,a mini post-it pad,and a mini red,white or blue hand sanitizer from Bath & Body Works for 3th of July [they have them out early~Apple Pie[red bottle],Eucalyptus?[white bottle] and Blueberry[blue bottle]!!!!!

    I MISS HER SO MUCH!!!!! She is such a blessing! We exchanged emails before she left, so I feel happy that I can still stay in touch, but I miss her daily presence SO much on SparkPeople. Betsy, such a BEAUTIFUL, thoughtful tribute to such an AWESOME friend! {{{{hugs}}}}

    Oh, Betsy, you have me crying here, my friend. emoticon
My Internet has been down, so I wasn't able to close my SP account this morning, as planned. (Maybe this was why - I was supposed to read this first.) Now I'm glad the Internet was down all morning, so I didn't miss your thoughtful goodie and message. Yes, it's fine to use my name. Thank you for your sweet words. I am honored to be your friend, and to have been able to share our journeys.

Lori and Katie, thank you, too!

My Spark Friends are such blessings! Love to each of you - and I'm praying for you!

BTW, I'm not sure if I mentioned it, but I'm looking into going back-to-school. It's something I've always wanted/ needed to do, and now is (finally) the time! Yay!!! So if the Lord lays it on your heart, please pray for me and my family. I sure could use some wisdom and guidance in the days ahead. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Much love!

    how adorable. And, thanks for the happy thoughts. Glad we had children, glad we homeschooled through high school, glad they are in their 20s, looking forward to weddings, and grandbabies, and aging gracefully if the Lord so allows.

Sharing My Chipboard Books ~~~

Thursday, April 28, 2011

Thought I would "share" my Chipboard books with you! [It is a book made out of a heavy duty cardboard that is pieced together like an accordion~I'm unsure as to why it is called "chipboard" unless it is chips of cardboard]! I am surprising my old longtime friends and former neighbors with these books showing their KIDS and myself{!} caroling and decorating cookies @ the cookie-bakes my mother had for the whole neighborhood @ Christmastime! {There is also one of my son @ HIS first cookie-bake!}.Not pictured : I also am making each couple a framed 8x10 photo of childhood memories of their child [one is of us caroling & the other is the breakfast stand}just to give as gifts! These friends are like family and as they are in their 70s, I wanted to preserve our childhood and their child's memories we all shared growing up!

Open Your Heart to Jesus~He Will Never Let You Down!

Sunday, April 24, 2011

On this Sunday ~Resurrection Sunday~ my Lord and Saviour Jesus rose from the dead. Why is that so significant a person might say? Well, because He is God and changes the lives of those who KNOW Him as Lord of their lives. He changed my life! I can't say I was into drugs because I wasn't; I can't say I was into alcohol because I wasn't;but I can say I was into sin [not focusing my life on Him]because we ALL are whether you believe it or not~after Eve took that first bite of the forbidden fruit,we ALL were. Sin is sin in God's eyes and if your focus is not on Him then, you ARE sinning.
Joshua 22:5~But take diligent heed to do the commandment love the Lord your God and to walk in all His ways ,and keep His commandments ,and cleave unto Him,and to serve Him ,with all your heart and with all your soul.
If you DO want to accept the Lord in your heart and love Him as YOUR Saviour {He died for YOU and me} You pray a prayer like this: "Thank you God that You sent Your Son Jesus to die for me.I know that withiut Him I would be separated from You forever by my sins. I invite you into my heart and my life to be my Saviour."
I pray for any and all who read this blog of mine today and any day. emoticon
