It Matters to Me!

And it's true! I'm thankful for the freedom and liberty we have in this country,
no matter what anyone says! And it's very precious. I'm thankful that we
have God's Word in our own language. I'm thankful that I have legal freedom
to do what's right and stand for truth. I want to show my appreciation
by how I live my life. I want to be a good steward of this precious gift!
Some things in America are dark right now, but if there's something I
 can do, I'm surely going to try! I can pray, I can have a say in who
I feel should be a leader, I can try hard to be a good citizen, I can
try to live God's Word everyday. I want to shine God's light. 
 I would rather get up and do something, pray or be an example or
whatever, I would rather do something to make this country
better than sit around my house complaining about everything that's
wrong with it. If I can do something, something, no matter how
small, to make a difference, some difference, I'll most
certainly try!

This freedom may not be important to some people, but it is to me!


My 1# Favorite Candy

I remember a while back, I'd said I would do posts about some of my
favorite things and also about our trip to Branson.

Okay, people, here we go. My favorite candy to top all candies is
Reeses' Pieces! I just love it! Why do I like it so much? Well, for
one thing, I'm a peanut butter fan. When I was a kid, I liked cheese
sandwiches better than peanut butter and jelly, but through the years
I've grown to really like peanut butter flavored products. And, boy,
am I thankful I'm not allergic to it like some people are! Call me crazy,
but as my sister can tell you, I've never really been a big lover of chocolate
(well, never a lover of it at all-which is okay. That means more chocolate
for you, for everyone else. ha ha ha). But the chocolate mixed with
peanut butter into a Reeses sweet is a delicious combination. I like the
salty, sweet, flavorful taste of peanut butter-oh yes, and it has to
be creamy for me! None of that crunchy stuff for my taste, unless
 it's my only option. I like sinking my teeth into the lovable,
creamy, filling sweetness of Reeses. But when I get the Reeses Blizzard
at Dairy Queen, I prefer the peanut butter cups, not the pieces because
they feel extra hard in the cold ice cream and make my teeth tingle.
Anyway, that's why I like Reeses more than any other candy. It's at
the top of my list!
