I guess he now knows....

Paul Harvey died today in AZ. He was 90 yrs old. I guess he now knows the rest of the story. :) A vacation will never be the same without hearing him.

Please pray for my url friend KK. Last night her 2 yr old son went to be with the LORD very unexpectedly. Right now they think he choked to death. She mentioned yesterday he had pink eye and was running a slight fever. She went to give him Motrin. Not sure if she gave him some, or while she was giving him some or what...but he went limp and never could be resuscitated.

DH didn't get the job he flew up for. There are still a couple we haven't heard from. Hopefully something will come soon.

The house was relisted for March 12th for sale...under a different agent and broker. The one this summer was a story in itself...sigh...hopefully it will sell soon.

Not much new this past week. Haven't been on much...didn't feel like typing and really didn't have much to say. Oh and apparently I really can't drop facebook...unless I stay away forever! So now I've decided just not to put anything else too personal on there. I will save that for here. LOL...yes, there is a difference in my mind...even if there really isn't a difference. It's hard to leave all my friends there.

Blessings for now.

Facebook, Interview, Friends...

I have dropped Facebook. I'd been thinking about dropping them for awhile, so their new policy that they reversed, was only the straw that broke the camel's back. If you ask me that's just a little too creepy...I know eventually I'll probably have to stop blogging and using the computer all together. :P But sometimes you have to start making some kind of stand. I've decided to drop them with parting words of something like..."Yes, you've changed back to your old policy, but for how long? When will it be before you change back? That's a bit too much BIG BROTHER for me."

Dh is on an interview face to face with the company he interviewed last week on the phone with. I'd appreciate prayers. Of course I'll let you know something as soon as I do. :)

Yesterday, I had the honor of meeting face to face, another lounge sister. We'd chatted on the phone a number of times, but this is the first to meet. We had a blast! Her kids are real cuties and we all laughed and laughed.

Blessings until next time!

Oh and in honor of dropping Facebook...yes, I know we don't live by fear...just thought this would be funny to play. :P

Rambling Thoughts on a Rainy Monday

Where to begin?

Saturday, My url friend, Haley and her dd's, and me and my girls hung out. We went and got them and then went shopping, lunch, got my hair highlighted (I'm sure that was the *highlight* of their day-lol) and then did a little more shopping before taking them home. It's always fun to meet new friends and enjoy their company. On the way home, I picked up Papa Murphy's heart shaped pizzas and some long stem strawberries and dipping chocolate for dinner. I also picked up a pork roast and sauerkraut for Sunday's dinner-YUMMY!

Sunday, the kids have been asking us to take them to Pink Panther 2, so that's what we did. Better than the first one-we all agreed. Came home to the YUMMY pork roast.

Today, we'll head back to Houston, and take dh to the airport tomorrow. He flies out for a job interview. He'll interview on Wednesday am and then fly back. Please keep him in your prayers-not only for the interview, but for safety, etc. He also has an interview on Thursday afternoon too! So hopefully he'll have the right job soon!

My heart's kinda heavy...between the job stuff, and then I found out my brother and my dad are at odds with each other...sigh...I don't know anything except my brother refuses to speak to my dad...and there's some other things going heart is heavy...I'm really concerned about this new presidency and administration. It saddens me when people think we can have world peace and that we should all get along. I wish that was possible, truly I do, but it ain't gonna happen, it's not! And what really concerns me is when people that consider themselves Christians, think that way too...have they not read the WORD of GOD? Do they not understand or know? I guess that's a post for another day though! So for now I'll stop...

Blessings until then!

PS the rodeo is near...hence the background! :D

This is an old favorite couple of songs of mine...very appropriate for how my heart is feeling lately. :)

dealing with stuff...

Belle had the tummy bug since Friday. I got it early yesterday. Dh came home with it yesterday before noon. I came home because Doodles got it. Ick...

On the way home to see Doodles, I was thinking of all the junk that I've been dealing with...the spiritual stuff...

GOD showed me something...don't know why I hadn't seen it sooner...

I've been standing on GOD's promise about dh's job and our dawned on me that satan has been throwing all this other stuff at me to get me to take my focus off of GOD, and if he can get my focus off GOD in the small things, he thinks he can take my focus off the big stuff eventually. And probably he could...if I didn't realize and catch it first. Thank GOD for HIS everlasting wisdom and love. Thank GOD for HIS everlasting faithfulness and knowledge and passing it on to us!!!

Thank you to all of you for your prayers and words of encouragement! It's been greatly appreciated and deeply heart felt. I pray GOD will bless each one of you for your kindness you've all shown me and that HE will show you that the blessing is because of your blessing to me. :) Thank you again! I love you all!


PS . a special blessing and thanks to Ms. C~ for coming by and bringing Doodles some sprite and gatorade, when I wasn't here. You're an angel, Ms. C~ Thanks a million!!! (Doodles and dh says thanks too!)

the kind of saddness that doesn't just go away...

Saturday, I got a pm on my facebook. It was from an ex-wife of an old friend. I met my old friend in highschool. He and his best friend had pranked called my best friend...somehow we ended up chatting on the phone for a couple of years and then meeting and hanging out for a couple more years. (okay, this was before I was a Christian) Then life changed...I got married, he got married, he went off to college with his wife in another city and so on and so on...then we all saw each other after my ds was born. He, his wife, and three handsome little boys came over to my house. It was a short, sweet visit. Little did I know it would be the last visit ever.

A couple years later I had spoke with his wife on the phone. He left her and three boys shortly afterwards...he told his wife he married her only for her to put him through school. : :( She was devastated. So was I...I prayed for a long time.

I remember that he always had demons in his closet...he had problems with depression, self esteem, a bad family life...I think this was part of his problem.

Anyhow, yesterday his ex-wife reached me through Facebook. She had made contact with me through Classmates but I guess never get my reply.

After a couple of plesantries, she told me she had thought of me several times through the years and also to tell me unfortunate news, that her ex, my friend had committed suicide about 5 years ago. I was shocked, saddened, not so surprised....all kinds of emotions, feelings, thoughts raced through my head.

If only there was a way to have helped him. Why didn't I know then what I know now about demonic and spiritual warfare? Why couldn't he see the TRUTH? Why did he have to deal with demons? I've been going over and over in my head there were signs when we were friends...why didn't I pick up on them then? I'm so sad...

Why couldn't he have known the TRUTH? Why did he have to live by circumstances and feelings?


I don't have any answers...I only know someday I will stand before the LORD...and someday we will see the faces in the big crack beneath us and I'll probably see my friend's face...and that makes me very, very sad.

I urge you to pray for your lost, unsaved family and friends. It's so disheartening to know there is nothing I can do now...NOTHING!!!

Sunday Sing-Along

All in Favor, say I!!!

Dear American liberals, leftists, social progressives, socialists, Marxists, Obama supporters, et al:

We have stuck together since the late 1950's, but the whole of this latest election process has made me realize that I want a divorce.

I know we tolerated each other for many years for the sake of future generations, but sadly, this relationship has run its course.

Our two ideological sides of America cannot and will not ever agree on what is right, so let's just end it on friendly terms.

We can smile; slate it up to irreconcilable differences, and go on our own ways. Here is a model dissolution agreement: Our two groups can equitably divide up the country by landmass each taking a portion.

That will be the difficult part, but I am sure our two sides can come to a friendly agreement. After that it should be relatively easy!

Our respective representatives can effortlessly divide other assets since both sides have such distinct and disparate tastes.

We don't like redistributive taxes so you can keep them.

You are welcome to the liberal judges and the ACLU.

Since you hate guns and war, we'll take our firearms, the cops, the NRA, and the military. You can keep Oprah, Michael Moore, and Rosie O'Donnell (you are however, responsible for finding a bio-diesel vehicle big enough to move them).

We'll keep the capitalism, greedy corporations, pharmaceutical companies, Wal-Mart, and Wall Street. You can have your beloved homeless, homeboys, hippies, and illegal aliens.

We'll keep the hot Alaskan Hockey Moms, greedy CEO's, and Rednecks. We'll keep the Bibles and give you NBC and Hollywood. You can make nice with Iran, Palestine, and France, and we'll retain the right to invade and hammer places that threaten us. You can have the peaceniks and war protesters.

When our allies or way of life are under assault, we'll provide them job security.

We'll keep our Judeo-Christian Values. You are welcome to Islam, Scientology, Humanism, and Shirley McClain. You can have the U.N. But we will no longer be paying the bill.

We'll keep the SUV's, pickup trucks, and oversized luxury cars. You can take every Subaru Station Wagon you can find.

You can give everyone healthcare, if you can find any practicing Doctors (that is practicing, Howard Dean) who will follow to your turf (sic). We'll continue to believe healthcare is a luxury and not a right.

We'll keep The Battle Hymn of the Republic and the National Anthem. I'm sure you'll be happy to substitute Imagine, I'd Like to Teach The World To Sing, Kum Ba Ya, or We Are the World.

We'll practice trickle down economics, and you can give trickle up poverty its best shot. Since it often so offends you we'll keep our History, our Name, and our Flag.

Would you agree to this? If so please pass it along to other like minded patriots, and if you do not agree just hit delete and hang on. In the spirit of friendly parting, I'll bet you ANWAR on who will need whose help in 15 years.

Law Student and an American

P.S. please take Barbra Streisand.

weird dream

I woke up this morning with a weird dream...yet it didn't seem so weird.

I was in a huge white truck and people were hitting it with golf clubs. (I remembered)

I woke up....

Then it was as if GOD explained the dream to me...
There will always be people coming against you because of ME.
The white truck was GOD, and I was with him, because I was inside of the truck...people were hitting the truck because they didn't like me because of GOD.

It was interesting to say the least.

I'm still sad...but I'm so thankful for all of you and all your wonderful and loving comments. I suggested to my former friend, in an email, to read them...she replied by email (and I have no idea if she read them or not), "Do those people really know you, or do they just know what you want them to see of you?"

I replied something like..."Some of them have known me in person for years...and that I treat them the same as I do you."

To all of you, I hope that what you see is what you get and that I don't put on aires...I really don't want to be that kind of person. I am thankful for all of you and your loving and encouraging words. I don't know how much I'll blog for now...I really love blogging. :) So I imagine I will be back! :) But I just want you all to know how much I appreciate your love and encouragement. It is nice to see and made me feel very special. Thank you all very much.

Also, would you all pray...dh has quite a few possibilites. Thank you!

on sabbatical

I'm on a blog sabbatical (not sure how long)...and not sure I'll be back...I'm very hurt and upset right now because of the post below...I am sad that former friends??? and family would think that I was purposely judging them...right now I'm at the point of why bother blogging...
