    Missy, this is priceless! I am reading the book, "A Case for Faith" (I forget the author's name... Stubel or something), and it is answering SO many questions I've had that have never been answered! The child crying was one of them, and I finally realize the answer to the question I had after reading the first chapter of this book!

Thank you for this blog! It's beautiful in many ways!

Love is the message of this song. I love this young man's voice and style. I hope you will enjoy it!

Our "Awwwwww" for the Day

Thursday, July 08, 2010

A giant farm dog and a tiny piglet cuddle up as if they were family after the baby runt was dismissed by its own mother. Surrogate mum Katjinga, an eight-year-old Rhodesian Ridgeback, took on motherly duties for grunter Paulinchen - a tiny pot-bellied pig - and seems to be taking the adoption in her stride. Lonely Paulinchen was luckily discovered moments from death and placed in the care of the dog who gladly accepted it as one of her own. Thankfully for the two-week old mini porker, Katjinga fell in love with him at first sight and saved his bacon.



And the unlikely relationship has made the wrinkly piggy a genuine sausage dog. In these adorable images Paulinchen can even be seen trying to suckle from his gigantic new mum. The two animals live together on a huge 20-acre farm in Hoerstel, Germany, where Katjinga's owners Roland Adam, 54, and his wife Edit, 44, a bank worker, keep a pair of breeding Vietnamese pigs.




Nose place like home: The baby piglet nuzzles up to its new mum. Property developer Roland found the weak and struggling piglet after he was abandoned by the rest of his family one evening after he was born. He said: "The pigs run wild on our land and the sow had given birth to a litter of five in our forest. "I found Paulinchen all alone and when I lifted him up he was really cold.



"I felt sure some local foxes would have taken the litt le pig that very night so I took it into my house and gave him to Katjinga. "She had just finished with a litter of her own, who are now 10 months, so I thought there was a chance she might take on the duties of looking after him. "Katjinga is the best mother you can imagine. She immediately fell in love with the piggy. Straight away she started to clean it like it was one of her own puppies. "Days later she started lactating again and giving milk for the piggy. She obviously regards it now as her own baby." Mum of the year? Quite possibly.



Have a Good Day! Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

HappyDance Time!

Thursday, July 01, 2010



Happy, happy, joy, joy!! What a LONG and crazy journey this has been. We don't begin to understand the purpose for the twists and turns of these last four months, but we are REJOICING that the nutsiness seems to be OVER! There are no words to thank you for standing with us, praying for us, encouraging us, sharing your wisdom with us. Lame as the words are, THANK YOU!! You are such awesome friends and I cannot thank God enough for you.

Bill is healthy and comfortable and although the company doctor did is level best to stop Bill from returning to work (something we have come to learn is his practice with ALL patients trying to return to work), Bill HAS gotten his fit-for-duty status and we are awaiting word from his coordinator now as to when he will get back on his ship. We suspect it will be next Wednesday. Having him home for four months has been a challenge in more ways than I can count. Through them all, we have received help from God in untold ways, and we cannot thank Him enough. That we have come through this and have NOT killed one another is a testament to the strength of our faith. lol

It never ceases to amaze me how quickly our friends rally around us no matter what the need is. Very few of you know Aunt Shirley, and yet you have been so faithful to pray for her and to inquire about her. Thank you for that! She is not strong enough to fly back to Pennsylvania until Monday, but she doesn't need to be in the hospital, either. They are going to move her to a local rehab facility today and then fly her directly from there to another rehab facility in Pennsylvania. Those are the plans, anyhow. We've learned that our plans often get changed while we're riding them. lol But as of now, things are much, much, MUCH improved!!

All the way around, we're doing the HappyDance today!!! What a RELIEF to no longer be subjected to the whims and fancies of the company doctor. What a great relief to know Bill has a job to return to!! What a relief to know Aunt Shirley will be recovered enough to get back home! Ahhhhhhhh it feels SO good!!!

Reminds me of the saying...what doesn't kill us will make us stronger.

How to Make My Heart Happy to Overflowing

Friday, June 25, 2010

First of all, thank you for all the prayers and encouragement for all the pressing needs that keep rising up in our family. We are so thankful for the many friends and family who have stood with us in these difficult times. We are now awaiting word on Bill's Aunt Shirley, hoping she will be released from ICU very soon. We are also waiting for word from Bill's company doctor. HOPEFULLY he will declare Bill fit for duty so he can go back to work! Having no paycheck since mid-February is getting a bit hairy!! God provides for us and we cannot thank Him enough for moving on our behalf.

Today we had the great joy of going to visit our little grandson, Heath. I had to share a few photos with you. For those of you who have walked this road with us, notice how much straighter his eyes are now!! We are just so grateful for that. He's regained all his weight and then some and smiles and waves and claps and is a happy little boy. Thank God!!



This is Bill's cousin, Kathy, who is visiting from Pennsylvania, having fun with Heath.



Bill, Heath and Kathy



Heath & Grammy



Heath, the Bubble Man!



THAT'S how to make my heart happy to overflowing!! LU-LAH!!

The straightening correction of Heath’s eyes is very noticeable, Missy! Praise God for His healing hand & may He bring complete healing in His perfect time.

All the photos are priceless – the “Bubble Man” delights me to no end! How happy that little man obviously is – what joy!

Summer so far has been cold...today in the 60's kids are swimming but the lake is ice cold...brrrrr.
How are things at the gulf? Will Bill get to take the boat out?

    Great pictures. Still praying and parying that Bill can get back to work. When one doesn't have a pay check one has to trust the Lord and He doesn't let us done. I'm sure you have lots of stories how God has provided for you during this time.
Thank you for sharing!

    Hi Missy and Bill! Heath is such a beautiful precious gift,when I see photos of him it makes me teary eyed in a good way. emoticon emoticonfor sharing this blog and photos with us and the updates on Heath's progress.I am not sure of what exactly happened to him,as I believe it happened just before I came here to SparkPeople just after.No matter,he is doing so well and is so loved,I hope I can some day meet this precious gift from God,that is your Grandson.You are the most emoticonGrandparents and he is so blessed to have the love a guidance you give him.You deserve an award emoticon emoticon emoticon! emoticon.
I do reflect on how his biological mom is doing and feel sorrow and it is difficult for me ,as a mom of 3 children to fathom doing any harm to my babies ever. I went through that postpardum stuff and felt overwhelmed when we brought our son home.The bond and love and happiness I felt was so amazing,you forget about the pain you went through for your cherrished gifts God has given to you.I hope the best for her and peace and the strength to do positive things in her life and be lifted to trust God to guide her to what his plan is for her life.
I also pray for you being released to go back to work,Capt. and your Aunt to be released from ICU and is gaining her health back.Many prayers and emoticon emoticonDiana emoticon emoticon emoticon

    That first picture of him just shouted "Captain Cookie" to me. I'll bet that he's almost the spitting image of Grandpa at that age...

It's really great that he's doing so well. I hope the rest of the family will also do as well.
