Holy Week

Many years ago in my conversion to Catholicism, I never knew the Catholic religion could be so beautiful. This week as been yet another reminder of how precious our life really is. It's been a time of reflection, meditations, prayers, fasting, and lots of prayer time spent with the Father. As Lent is coming to a close, I look back at the past weeks and thank God for all that he has shown me. My prayer is that I will continue to seek HIM every single day in all that I do. I'm VERY thankful that HE continues to heal me and to heal my family and friends.

There is a book I'd like to give away......I've never done a give-a-way before but this is a book that is a must read. It's a powerful book on prayer and forgiveness.

If you would be interested in this book, please leave me a comment. If there are several requests for this book, I will do a drawing. Stay tuned.

When your city is taken over by the media

Everyone knows now where the Superbowl will be played at. And, let me tell you.....everywhere you look, there is someone or something to remind you that it's only in a few days. The media here is thick.....lines & lines of ESPN trucks you have the local media. Camera lights and lots of action. Superbowl parties EVERYWHERE!

It's pretty neat to see how a city prepares for such a BIG event. It's amazing that all those potholes you run into everyday are now fixed....ha!

May your team win~~

Happy New Year

I posted this on my FB

Yet another year about to slip away, oh where does the time go? So many great life moments will happen this will graduate, some will get the jobs they've been praying for and most of all families will reunite. My wish for all of you is to HOPE, BELIEVE and keep your FAITH alive for 2011.

Merry Christmas

There is nothing like seeing Joy in a child's heart..this little girl loved handing out the gifts and kept going back to the tree to find more.

We're so thankful for the family and friends we've been blessed with.

Part 2: I'm so blessed

....While in isle 10 at Kroger, my BFF called me to say that her son was is in the hospital and awaiting surgery from a kidney stone blockage. This has been a week long ordeal and I could hear the stress and exhaustion in her voice. I stopped dead in my tracks and opened my heart. Lord, use me, to help this family. She proceeded to tell me how she had to push back her clients (she's a hair stylist) a few days so that she could be with her son. I could hear the concern and the discouragement telling me she had to find a way to get back to work before Christmas because that was how she was going to be able to get Christmas for her children. I'm thinking Christmas is only a few days again, I ask my Father, how can I help her? My family is healthy, my family has food to eat, my family will be together..Lord, I'm family will be fine.....Father, keep my eyes turned toward your compassion and love. Like you said Father, Love One Another and that I shall.

What we're doing for Christmas

With Christmas right around the corner, we still haven't put up our tree and probably won't. We had a few decorations out but they've already been put up. In fact, I volunteered to work Christmas day for a co-worker who has a 3 & 5 year old. With my kids in their teens, I figured I was blessed and still am so what the heck....I will cook breakfast Christmas day and the head to work and husband will take kids to the movies. We are doing Christmas with in-laws Friday night and then with my parents Sunday. Everything will work out just perfect.

So.......until next time.....Merry Christmas y'all.

I'm hoping Santa brings me a new camera so I can start posting pictures for keepsake. is super busy at our home, with two teenage boys, I'm telling you, there is NEVER a dull moment. Neverrrrrrrrrr-ha!
