We listened to Martina McBride this morning on our way into Nashville. Wow, I love to hear her sing. I don't think any one can compare to her. She also sings songs with such great lyrics. This morning I heard "Blessed". I should listen to it every morning as a reminder to how blessed I am.

I am so blessed with such a great family and not 1 but 2 great church families. More blessings than I could ever list.

Thank you Lord.


I have been blessed
And I feel like I've found my way
I thank God for all I've been given
At the end of every day
I have been blessed
With so much more than I deserve
To be here with the ones that love me
To love them so much it hurts
I have been blessed

Blessings to all,

Our Personal Defender

Last Saturday we made a trip to the theater to see Madea Goes to Jail. I love Tyler Perry's movies, but this was probably my least favorite. Don't misunderstand, I did laugh, a lot. I think it's probably hard to make sequels and have them be as good as the first.

As usual, Madea is in trouble and back in court. Defending her is her sweet nephew lawyer. He goes before the judge for her or should I say he trys. Madea is not very good at being quiet and letting her defense speak for her. She is however very lucky to have a lawyer that cares about her and that she knows she can trust.

Although we are Christians and try to live holy lives we are not exempt from sin. There are many times we mess up. Daily for me. We are so blessed to have a defender who speaks for us to our judge. Not just any defender, but a holy spotless one. The very one who knew no sin and died for ours is our mediator. He loves us and he can always be trusted. He will always do what is best for us.

Thank you Father for sending your only son to die for me; that I may experience your love while here on earth and know that someday I will live with you forever.

....;But if anyone does sin, we have one who speaks to the Father in our defense - Jesus Christ, the Righteous One.

Walking in the Light

Light? What is light? What do we gain from light? This mornings devotion brought these questions to my mind.

Light helps us find our way. It may be a small flashlight to help see down a dark trail or a candle used to see when there's no electricity. Thankfully the sun gives us light so we don't have to always be in the dark. For someone trapped in a cave or a mine, the smallest ray of light showing through gives hope of being found.

Light from the sun gives us warmth. Even on a cold winter day the sun on our face warms us. There is a comforting feeling when pulling up to your home at night and seeing that amber color glowing in a window.

This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all.
1 John 1: 5

Light represents the honesty, goodness, and purity of God. There are no shadows or dark sides to God. He is light!!

Just like the light, God helps us find our way. Through his love we find hope in a dark world.

Blessings to all,

Snow !!!

We had the most beautiful snow in Lewisburg on Sunday. The news said we had 8 inches at 6:30 am and it snowed 2 more hours after that.
This is a pic taken from my front door with my cell phone. No I did not venture outside. Kaleb and Eric enjoyed it, while The Dessert Fairly and I watched from the warmth of the house.
Kaleb is extremely happy to be out of school today and will probably enjoy the snow again.
Busy day at work this morning.
Blessing to all,
