About Me

My photo

The most important thing to know about me is that I am a Christian. I love my Lord and try very hard to follow his principles. I have no doubt that when my time comes to leave this earth, I will meet my maker in Heaven, and that is such a comforting thought to me.

I am mother to four children, 7 grandchildren, 3 dogs, one cat, and one goat. Yes, I said a goat!

I am a crafter who enjoys scrapbooking, paper crafting, and crochet. I also enjoy outdoors stuff and love to hunt with my husband.

Gifts from God

On Monday, May 17, 2010 @ 0926AM, our family received the most precious gift from God. He gave us a beautiful granddaughter! She weighed in at 7 lbs 7.5 oz, 19.5 inches long, and is absolutely beautiful. Welcome to the world Abby!!!
Her mother, my daughter, has wanted a little girl to "play dress up with" since she was a child herself. She was the only girl in a house full of boys. We were always out numbered. Usually, even the dog was male!!! Talk about testosterone, it was thicker than a San Francisco fog in our house! If she received a new Barbie for a birthday or Christmas, it wouldn't be long before that Barbie had different colors on her arms and legs, or became headless in some sort of war game the boys were playing. They had a tougher time doing things with her larger dolls, except to color them.
She had a room to herself, but the boys always knew the perfect time to sneak in there and create their havoc. She was the oldest so of course, she was in school before them. She would often come home, only to find her room had been trashed by her brothers, usually when they were supposed to have been napping or playing in their rooms and I was in the other room studying or something! She was so happy when she finally graduated high school, got married and moved away from the loving, yet terroristic brothers of hers, or so she thought!!
When she and her husband moved into a family home, inherited due to the death of my husbands mother, she had my oldest son also living with her. He continued to wreak havoc, only not quite as bad. He had stopped coloring on her dolls anyway.
As the kids have grown older and started having families of their own, we have all been through good times and bad, but we have been able to survive these times and help each other out. I thank God for that.
Only God truly knows what goes in with any family dynamic, and He knows what is going on with ours. I thank Him for the fresh opportunities He has given us and I praise Him for the gifts He has given us. I ask him for assistance in other situations and I have faith that He will take care of them, in His way and in His time.
God has truly been good to this family and I know that angers Satan and I really don't care! I say SATAN GET OUT OF MY HOUSE AND OUT OF OUR LIVES!!! IN THE NAME OF JESUS, BE GONE SATAN! With that said, and having the faith that God will take care of us, I am cutting this entry short so I can spend more time with my precious granddaughter! I'll be back soon!
In the mean time, thank God for the gifts he has given you. If you aren't sure of what gifts God has given you, take a breath. There is your first gift!! I'm sure you can find others from there.
