I Needed To Hear This Today...

1 Corinthians 10:13 (The Message)

13No test or temptation that comes your way is beyond the course of what others have had to face. All you need to remember is that God will never let you down; he'll never let you be pushed past your limit; he'll always be there to help you come through it.

A Date With Kids

Friday night we took the kids on a date. We went to Chili's for supper. Then we went to see the Hannah Montana movie. Makenna was in heaven! Then on the way home we made a stop at Jerry's for ice cream. The kids were really good and enjoyed their evening. Even mom and dad had a good time!

Happy Earth Day

Today is Earth Day. I took the chance today to think about what my family is doing to help this planet. We recycle glass, plastic, paper, steel, and aluminum. When we grocery shop we use reusable grocery bags. Tonight, we walked to the cultural center to pick up Makenna from art class instead of driving.

We didn't do anything exciting like plant a tree, but at least it was a conscious thought about how we can help preserve this planet for our grandchildren.

Be Still

On this journey I face "storms" at times. It is comforting to know that I don't go through anything alone.

Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth. Psalm 46:10

Mark 4:37-41
"A furious squall came up, and the waves broke over the boat, so that it was nearly swamped. Jesus was in the stern, sleeping on a cushion. The disciples woke him and said to him, "Teacher, don't you care if we drown?"
He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, "Quiet! Be still!" Then the wind died down and it was completely calm.
He said to his disciples, "Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?"
They were terrified and asked each other, "Who is this? Even the wind and the waves obey him!"

Happy Easter

This morning when the kids got up they discovered the Easter Bunny had left a surprise for them.

They looked pretty spiffy in their Easter clothes. Keaton actually liked the tie! (I was afraid it was going to be an issue.)
We went to Aunt Shirley's after church for lunch. The cousins were there too. We had a good visit.

Keaton's favorite part of the day was when Uncle Floyd took them to look at the tractors in the barn. Keaton was in heaven!!

Thanks for the cards and money Nana, Papaw, Nanny Fran, and Pop-Pop!!

Please Pray

Please pray for my niece Ava. She is the one in the picture sitting on my mom's lap. She and her family are visiting relatives in Phoenix and this morning she had an accident. All the information I have received is that she has a skull fracture and they are transferring her to a hospital where they have a pediatric intensive care unit.
