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.

What Christmas means to me....

Christmas is fast approaching and I haven't bought the first present! I hate it when we end up waiting until the last minute, but there have been times that we have found some of the best things at the last minute. Why do we put such importance on presents at Christmas? For so many people, the importance of Christmas lies in the perfect decorations, perfect tree, and of course, the perfect presents. So many people seem to have forgotten the real reason we celebrate Christmas.
Christmas is the time of year we celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I am so excited about what Peachtree Baptist Church is doing to celebrate our Lord's birth. We are having an actual birthday party for Jesus!! Even though we get to enjoy the precious gift God gave us, and we will be enjoying the refreshements, I think God knows we are actually celebrating is birth!
That is what Christmas is all about to me. The enjoyment and celebration of Jesus' birth, sharing this time with family and friends, and what better time to share the story of Jesus with someone than to tell them about his birth! HAPPY BIRTHDAY JESUS!!!!!!!!!!
