A Little Heads Up

Okay, people! We're still alive!

All right, I apologize for lack of posting. I suppose I could've just informed what we were doing,
but I like to share pictures. Anyway, I guess that's what I'll have to do for now, just can't share
 pictures yet, that is from the passed 2 months anyway.

I'm planning to do a series of posts on some of my favorite things: things I'm crazy about, things
 I like just because, and such.

Anyway, I'm planning to not be so silent again. Oh, and I'm planning on a special cooking project
 to make for Sunday. It's not really that special, but it's been around for decades and I've never
 made it before. I really want to try my hand at it. Lord willing, I'll let you know how it comes out.

I still can't really download pictures yet onto the computer, but...

Just Make It Go Away!

I just wanted to share a thought that's been on my heart lately. I read this quotation
from a book in my collection of many books. It is by the author. In fact, the post title
and verses are from his book too. Sometimes life stings and brings us bruises, physical,
emotional, or spiritual. Sometimes all we can do is just cry out to God saying,"Lord, I
can't do this alone!! You are the one I need. It's only on Your strength that I can go on
or even do this. Lord, I'm so weak! I cannot do this by myself! Oh, please, Lord God,
help me!" Sometimes our burdens don't just appear that way, but they are heavy, so
terribly heavy, and there are other moments that it feels like extra weights are being
placed on it or that bashing problems are hitting us from every direction!
 The Bible says,"...casting all your cares on Him, for He cares for you."
 (1 Peter 5:7)  There are times in life when we feel,"Lord, if I do this, it is going to
kill me! I feel like I could die from this sadness. This is too heavy for me, too
painful, especially to bear alone! Lord, help me! Oh, please, help me!"
When you are extremely burdened, whether it's a hassling day, or
some deep pain that is making your heart just bleed, cry out to God! Call on
Him for help! Fall at His feet. Weep, if you have to. But come to Him with
your hurts, big and little! (Those were my own thoughts.)

"He went a little farther and fell on His face, and prayed, saying, 
'O My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me;
nevertheless, not as I will, but as You will."
(Matthew 26:39)

" Sometimes we can see the road ahead, and it frightens us. We
want to find another path, another journey, another ending.
Sometimes, no matter what we do, no matter how hard we
struggle, we can't change our destination."
-Robert D. Lesslie, M.D.

 "Fear not, for I am with you;
Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you,
I will uphold you with My
righteous right hand."
(Isaiah 41:10)

Friend, if you are reading this post and are feeling pressed down and heavy-laden,
I hope what I've shared here will give you something to think about and I hope
be able to use.

We're Still Here!

Hello, everyone!

I know the blog's been very quiet for a while. I haven't had much of anything to report, plus
we've had some computer changes and I'm still getting used to the new program, that's part of it.
I'm hoping to share pictures later of the beautiful red roses Dad gave me for Valentine's Day. He gave
each of us some, and mailed our cards to us!

That's all for now. Plus it's been cold. I'm planning to share other pictures too, hopefully later.

Growing Babies

These pictures were taken in November, but I wanted to share them.

George & Caroline
She's so pretty and cute.
I'm happy to have my picture taken.

Family Christmas Party

The Saturday after Christmas we had our extended family Christmas party at
Tatum and Scott's house. We had fun and we were surrounded by so many
little ones. I can hardly remember what it was like before all the babies
were with us.

Caroline looked so pretty in her cute little green Christmas dress.
George and me playing
Cousins Adalynn & George

Dad was so cute playing on his knees with the little ones.

Time for presents!
Nora got a furry kitty.
