Hey There...If You're Still There...

I pretty much feel like I've been posting gloom and doom types of posts lately and I can't really see how that can be a help to anyone...except me by venting and verbally stating the God knows because I'm not getting any comments...I think I may be all alone out here in cyber space blog world...but maybe you are out there and have been going through some of the same things...just don't give up...even if you want to just don't give up.

So to those of you who are still there...following...silently...I'm sorry if I've hindered your progress and for those of you who are still there...following...silently...I hope that you don't feel alone in your struggles...not only am I going through it...God has already been there done that and he's right beside both of us.

NOW...It is very obviously Spring where we are and I am itching to finish and start projects and I know that there are at least two of you, whom will remain nameless (DE and JH) who are very thrifty and extremely crafty that I hope to impress with my endevours...and to get some comments from.

Are we starting to see a pattern here??? LOL

Anyway, now that school is winding down, I hope to have more time to post and to post some fun and possitive things rather than just the tuff stuff.

So, let's get started shall are a few pictures of my family, my parents, and my sister and brother-in-law's family...they were taken last fall by Kim Jones, a local photographer who is wonderful...please visit her site at

I'll Have Some Perspective with A Side of Humble Pie Please...

So with everything that has been going on and getting worse by the way...I have found my naturally multi- tasking self becomming singularly focused on one thing and that one thing is the cause of upheaval and pain in my life and the lives of my husband and my children.

Then my husband ran across this...

At this point Jesus had been "dead" for almost two days and was in Hell, where I like to believe he was informing Satan that God had already won and that all of his past and future efforts are matter what he tries or how long he is allowed or try...God still wins.

In a few hours, Jesus would rise from the "dead" and spend the next 40 days appearing to, talking to, eating with, and convincing US that He IS alive. He even allows Thomas to prove that His crucifiction wounds are real by placing his fingers in the wrist wounds.

Now He is ALIVE and preparing a place for me and for all of us who are called by His name. Christians, those who have accepted Jesus as their saviour.

What are the things that I am dealing with compared to the pain that Jesus went through? Nothing that's what...but Jesus knows what I and my family are feeling because he has already been there...He knows more pain than I can even fathom and He went through that pain for ME...and for YOU.

We are not alone and God knows why these things are happening and one day I will know too!!!

Have a Blessed Day!!!
