Amost the New Year!

I guess we are all sitting and wondering where this past year has gone!!!!!
It seems when we are still in school you just wish time would go faster so that your older and now that we are older we wish it didn't go so fast!!!!

Hope everyone Christmas was fantastic!!!!
Mine sucked as it always does any more but I'm alive so that's what counts!!!!
Plus I look at it that there are more less forunate people & homeless with nothing so I count my blessings!!
I got a $100 gift card from my oldest son Derrick & his girlfriend Missy which I'll use for groceries & Jace told me that after he gets his Mustang on the road he'll get my corner enterainment center for me since my HUGE big one is falling apart & is hard as he-- to move!!!!

Alright everyone I have a HUGE favor to ask Nore of Nores' Niceities is trying to reach 25,000 hits for 2007 so lets all pitch in & help her reach that goal & let everyone know she has a AWESOME kit that she's offering right now the papers & a QP called "Snowy Purple" so go check her out!!!!!!!!!!

Here is another something my sister sent me & I thought it would be good to start off the New Year with something to think of

Take a potato and write on it a name of a person who has fallen from grace with you.
Do this for everyone who has raised your ire and never received your forgiveness.
When you've finished, gather all your potatoes together and place them in a sack.

Keep this sack next to you at all times:
Take it to work. Take it to lunch.
Take it everywhere you go.
And always have it with you at home.

How long would it take for you to grow tired of carrying this burden around?
How long would it take your potatoes to sprout into other things, fester and smell?
Wouldn't it be nice to be free from the weight, stench, and constant reminder of hurt, disappointment, heartache, and anger?

By hanging on to things that are unpleasant, we create more anguish for ourselves.
When you forgive someone, you free yourself from an oppressive load of negativity.
Forgiveness allows you to create peace in your life.

HAVE A SAFE & HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good Evening Everyone!!!!!!!!!

Finally found a little time to update!!!
Got my presents all done & just got to wrap them!!!

Finished up Derrick & his girlfriend Missy's presents yesterday & only have a little to do to them!!!
Can't say more than that in case they read this LOL!!!!
And of course since my sister sent this to me it's the right time to share this!!!!!!

A Different Christmas Poem
The embers glowed softly, and in their dim light,
I gazed round the room and I cherished the sight.
My wife was asleep, her head on my chest,
My daughter beside me, angelic in rest.

Outside the snow fell, a blanket of white,
Transforming the yard to a winter delight.
The sparkling lights in the tree I believe,
Completed the magic that was Christmas Eve.

My eyelids were heavy, my breathing was deep,
Secure and surrounded by love I would sleep.
In perfect contentment, or so it would seem,
So I slumbered, perhaps I started to dream.

The sound wasn't loud, and it wasn't too near,
But I opened my eyes when it tickled my ear
Perhaps just a cough, I didn't quite know,
Then the sure sound of footsteps outside in the snow.

My soul gave a tremble, I struggled to hear,
And I crept to the door just to see who was near.
Standing out in the cold and the dark of the night,
A lone figure stood, his face weary and tight.

A soldier, I puzzled, some twenty years old,
Perhaps a Marine, huddled here in the cold.
Alone in the dark, he looked up and smiled,
Standing watch over me, and my wife and my child.

"What are you doing?" I asked without fear,
"Come in this moment, it's freezing out here!
Put down your pack, brush the snow from your sleeve,
You should be at home on a cold Christmas Eve!"

For barely a moment I saw his eyes shift,
Away from the cold and the snow blown in drifts..
To the window that danced with a warm fire's light
Then he sighed and he said "Its really all right,

I'm out here by choice. I'm here every night.
So that your family can sleep without fright.
It's my duty to stand at the front of the line,
That separates you from the darkest of times.

No one had to ask or beg or implore me,
I'm proud to stand here like my fathers before me.
My Gramps died at 'Pearl on a day in December,"
Then he sighed, "That's a Christmas 'Gram always remembers"

My dad stood his watch in the jungles of 'Nam',
And now it is my turn and so, here I am.
I've not seen my own son in more than a while,
But my wife sends me pictures, he's sure got her smile.

Then he bent and he carefully pulled from his bag,
The red, white, and blue... an American flag.
I can live through the cold and the being alone,
Away from my family, my house and my home.

I can stand at my post through the rain and the sleet,
I can sleep in a foxhole with little to eat.
I can carry the weight of killing another,
Or lay down my life with my sister and brother..

Who stand at the front against any and all,
To ensure for all time that this flag will not fall."
"So go back inside," he said, "harbor no fright,
Your family is waiting and I'll be all right."

"But isn't there something I can do, at the least,
"Give you money," I asked, "or prepare you a feast?
It seems all too little for all that you've done,
For being away from your wife and your son."
Then his eye welled a tear that held no regret,
"Just tell us you love us, and never forget.
To fight for our rights back at home while we're gone,
To stand your own watch, no matter how long.
For when we come home, either standing or dead,
To know you remember we fought and we bled.
Is payment enough, and with that we will trust,
That we mattered to you as you mattered to us."

PLEASE, Would you do me the kind favor of sending this to as many people as you can? Christmas will be coming soon and some credit is due to our U.S. Service men and women for our being able to celebrate these festivities.
Let's try in this small way to pay a tiny bit of what we owe.
Make people stop and think of our heroes, living and dead, who sacrificed themselves for us

The Bash was alright but I danced a little but boy I did alright with the door prizes came home with a Free oil change & 5 coupons for free Domino's Pizza!!! Which I haven't used yet!!! LOL

I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving & please remember those less foruntate than us & all oversea's & how lucky we are no matter what happens in our life there is alway's someone worse off than ourselves!!!!!
My oldest son Derrick & his girlfriend are taking me out for Thanksgiving Dinner since they both work Christmas, boy do I remember those days when I worked Christmas so everyone with families could be home with them but than I got off New Years so that was great for me!!!
I loved working Christmas because all the families would come to visit their loved one's or you'd have the one's that it was the only time they visited & would give you a bunch of greif whinch ticked me off. I bet your wondering where I worked, well I was a Nurse's Aide & than a Certifed Nurse's Aide.
Well I guess that's it for tonight!!! So I'll leaave you once again with something my sister sent me BUT you better have tissues handy!!!!!!!!
HUGS TO ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is beautiful!
She jumped up as soon as she saw the surgeon come out of the operating room.
She said: 'How is my little boy ?
Is he going to be all right ? When can I see him ?'
The surgeon said, 'I'm sorry. We did all we could, but your boy didn't make it.'
Sally said, 'Why do little children get cancer ?
Doesn't God care any more ? Where were you, God, when my son needed you ?'
The surgeon asked, 'Would you like some time alone with your son ?

One of the nurses will be out in a few minutes, before he's transported to the university.
'Sally asked the nurse to stay with her while she said good bye to son.
She ran her fingers lovingly through his thick red curly hair.
'Would you like a lock of his hair ?' the nurse asked. Sally nodded yes.
The nurse cut a lock of the boy's hair, put it in a plastic bag and handed it to Sally.
The mother said, 'It was Jimmy's idea to donate his body to the University for Study.
He said it might help somebody else. 'I said no at first, but Jimmy said, 'Mom, I won't be using it after I die.
Maybe it will help some other little boy spend one more day with his Mom.
' She went on, 'My Jimmy had a heart of gold. Always thinking of someone else.
Always wanting to help others if he could.

'Sally walked out of Children's Mercy Hospital for the last time, after spending most of the last six months there.
She put the bag with Jimmy's belongings on the seat beside her in the car.
The drive home was difficult. It was even harder to enter the empty house.
She carried Jimmy's belongings, and the plastic bag with the lock of his hair to her son's room. She started placing the model cars and other personal things back in his room exactly where he had always kept them.
She laid down across his bed and, hugging his pillow, cried herself to sleep.
It was around midnight when Sally awoke.
Laying beside her on the bed was a folded letter.
The letter said:'

Dear Mom,
I know you're going to miss me; but don't think that I will ever forget you, or stop loving you, just 'cause I'm not around to say 'I Love You'.
I will always love you, Mom, even more with each day.
Someday we will see each other again.
Until then, if you want to adopt a little boy so you won't be so lonely, that's okay with me.
He can have my room and o ld stuff to play with.
But, if you decide to get a girl instead, she probably wouldn't like the same things us boys do. You'll have to buy her dolls and stuff girls like, you know.
Don't be sad thinking about me. This really is a neat place.

Grandma and Grandpa met me as soon as I got here and showed me around some, but it will take a long time to see everything.
The angels are so cool. I love to watch them fly. And, you know what?
Jesus doesn't look like any of his pictures. Yet, when I saw Him, I knew it was Him.
Jesus himself took me to see GOD ! And guess what, Mom ?
I got to sit on God's knee and talk to Him, like I was somebody important.
That's when I told Him that I wanted to write you a letter, to tell you good bye and everything. But I already knew that wasn't allowed.

Well, you know what Mom ? God handed me some paper and His own personal pen to write you this letter.
I think Gabriel is the name of the angel who is going to drop this letter off to you.
God said for me to give you the answer to one of the questions you asked Him
'Where was He when I needed him ?' 'God said He was in the same place with me, as when His son Jesus was on the cross.
He was right there, as He always is with all His children.
Oh, by the way, Mom, no one else can see what I've written except you.
To everyone else this is just a blank piece of paper. Isn't that cool ?
I have to give God His pen back now He needs it to write some more names in the Book of Life.

Tonight I get to sit at the table with Jesus for supper. I'm sure the food will be great.
Oh, I almost forgot to tell you. I don't hurt anymore The cancer is all gone.
I'm glad because I couldn't stand that pain anymore and God couldn't stand to see me hurt so much, either.
That's when He sent The Angel of Mercy to come get me.
The Angel said I was a Special Delivery ! How about that ?
Signed with Love from God, Jesus & Me.

(Let's see Satan stop this one.)
Take 60 seconds and repost this, within the hour, you will have caused a multitude of believers to pray to God for each other.
Then sit back and feel the Holy Spirit work in your life for doing what you know God loves 'When you're down to nothing, God is up to something.'

Good Morning

Well Its been awhile again so I figured I better get my butt in gear & post a little!!
Not much going on here!!
Tonight is the Fall Bash at the Firehouse that the Apparatus has every year for a fund raiser.
Of course its with our FAVORITE DJ's Sight & Sound they are Shorty Long's Grandson's!!!
Of course I think only us in Pa know him!!! LOL But the guys are really hard to get because they're booked solid since they are wacky at what they do!!
I can't believe its been a year since I've been out but I love to dance & really want be able to do much of it with my knee's!!!
Well I guess thats it for now & once again I'll leave you with something my sister sent me!!!

Who's Better at the Computer
Jesus and Satan were having an on-going argument about who was better on the computer. They had been going at it for days, and frankly God was tired of hearing all the bickering.
Finally fed up, God said, 'THAT'S IT! I have had enough.
I am going to set up a test that will run for two hours, and from those results, I will judge who does the better job.'
So Satan and Jesus sat down at the keyboards and typed away.

They moused.
They faxed.
They e-mailed.
They e-mailed with attachments.
They downloaded.
They did spreadsheets!

They wrote reports.
They created labels and cards.
They created charts and graphs.
They did some genealogy reports.
They did every job known to man.

Jesus worked with heavenly efficiency and Satan was faster than hell.
Then, ten minutes before their time was up, lightning suddenly flashed across the sky, thunder rolled, rain poured, and, of course, the power went off..
Satan stared at his blank screen and screamed every curse word known in the underworld.

Jesus just sighed. Finally the electricity came back on, and each of them restarted their computers. Satan started searching frantically, screaming:
'It's gone! It's all GONE! 'I lost everything when the power went out!'
Meanwhile, Jesus quietly started printing out all of his files from the past two hours of work. Satan observed this and became irate.
'Wait!' he screamed. 'That's not fair! He cheated!
How come he has all his work and I don't have any?'
God just shrugged and said, JESUS SAVES

Well I guess thats it for now so I'm leaving you with something my sister left me and I hope you do the same!!!!

Are You To Busy for a Friend...
One day a teacher asked her students to list the names of the other students in the room on two sheets of paper, leaving a space between each one.
Then she told them to think of the nicest thing they could say about each of their classmates and write it down.
It took the remainder of the class period to finish their assignment, and as the students left the room, each one handed in the paper.
That Saturday, the teacher wrote down the name of each student on a separate sheet of paper, and listed what everyone else had said about that individual.
On Monday she gave each student his or her list.
Before long, the entire class was smiling.
'Really?' she heard whispered. 'I never knew that I meant anything to anyone!' and, 'I didn't know others liked me so much,' were most of the comments.
No one ever mentioned those papers in class again.
She never knew if they discussed them after class or with their parents, but it didn't matter. The exercise had accomplished its purpose.
The students were happy with themselves and one another.
That group of students moved on.

Several years later, one of the students was killed in VietNam and his teacher attended the funeral of that special student.
She had never seen a serviceman in a military coffin before.
He looked so handsome, so mature.
The church was packed with his friends.
One by one those who loved him took a last walk by the coffin.
The teacher was the last one to bless the coffin.
As she stood there, one of the soldiers who acted as pallbearer came up to her. '
Were you Mark's math teacher?' he asked.
She nodded: 'yes.' Then he said: 'Mark talked about you a lot.'

After the funeral, most of Mark's former classmates went together to a luncheon.
Mark's mother and father were there, obviously waiting to speak with his teacher.
'We want to show you something,' his father said, taking a wallet out of his pocket 'They found this on Mark when he was killed.
We thought you might recognize it.'
Opening the billfold, he carefully removed two worn pieces of notebook paper that had obviously been taped, folded and refolded many times.
The teacher knew without looking that the papers were the ones on which she had listed all the good things each of Mark's classmates had said about him.
'Thank you so much for doing that,' Mark's mother said. 'As you can see, Mark treasured it.'

All of Mark's former classmates started to gather around. Charlie smiled rather sheepishly and said, 'I still have my list.
It's in the top drawer of my desk at home.'
Chuck's wife said, 'Chuck asked me to put his in our wedding album.'
'I have mine too,' Marilyn said. 'It's in my diary'
Then Vicki, another classmate, reached into her pocketbook, took out her wallet and showed her worn and frazzled list to the group. 'I carry this with me at all times,' Vicki said and without batting an eyelash, she continued: 'I think we all saved our lists'

That's when the teacher finally sat down and cried.
She cried for Mark and for all his friends who would never see him again.
The density of people in society is so thick that we forget that life will end one day.
And we don't know when that one day will be So please, tell the people you love and care for, that they are special and important.
Tell them, before it is too late.
And One Way To Accomplish This Is:
Forward this message on.
If you do not send it, you will have, once again passed up the wonderful opportunity to do something nice and beautiful.
If you've received this, it is because someone cares for you and it means there is probably at least someone for whom you care.
If you're 'too busy' to take those few minutes right now to forward this message on, would this be the VERY first time you didn't do that little thing that would make a difference in your relationships?
The more people that you send this to, the better you'll be at reaching out to those you care about.
Remember, you reap what you sow.
What you put into the lives of others comes back into your own.

Sorry for being MIA

Haven't been in the best of moods!!!
Last Monday Oct 1st was my birthday & I want to Thank you all for the wishes!!!!
It was just a awful depressing day for me!!! Missing my husband just had me in such a depressing mood because not having anyone here to celebrate it with!!!
Both my son's were working, Derrick called me & than Thursday night him & his girlfriend took me out to dinner at Yellow House Hotel, Its a very old place and people come from far away to eat there and its said to be haunted!!!
Jace gave me a birthday card & a Big hug!!!!!

I was going to post yesterday but than I got a phone call from Jace's friends Mom at 3:45pm, He was in a accident with his motorcycle and had taken him to the new St Joseph's Hospital that I've got no idea were its even at, I use to always go to the old one in Reading.
I was to upset to drive let alone I don't like driving when its dark.
Well they called me a couple of times to inform me of the long progress of the ER and finally at 9:15pm the hospital called Derrick and he went to pick him up and they finally got home at 10:30pm. He has a concussion And stitches in his left elbow, so that meant I hag to wake him up every couple of hours, he's feeling a little better except his back hurts him!!!
Well I guess that's it for now

The "Middle Wife" by an Anonymous 2nd grade teacher
I've been teaching now for about fifteen years.
I have two kids myself, but the best birth story I know is the one I saw in my own second grade classroom a few years back.
When I was a kid, I loved show-and-tell.
So I always have a few sessions with my students.
It helps them get over shyness and usually, show-and-tell is pretty tame.
Kids bring in pet turtles, model airplanes, pictures of fish they catch, stuff like that And I never, ever place any boundaries or limitations on them.
If they want to lug it in to school and talk about it, they're welcome.

Well, one day this little girl, Erica, a very bright, very outgoing kid, takes her turn and waddles up to the front of the class with a pillow stuffed under her sweater.
She holds up a snapshot of an infant.
"This is Luke, my baby brother, and I'm going to tell you about his birthday."

"First, Mom and Dad made him as a symbol of their love, and then Dad put a seed in my Mom's stomach, and Luke grew in there.
He ate for nine months through an umbrella cord."
She's standing there with her hands on the pillow, and I'm trying not to laugh and wishing I had my camcorder with me.
The kids are watching her in amazement.

"Then, about two Saturdays ago, my Mom starts saying and going, 'Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh!'
Erica puts a hand behind her back and groans.
"She walked around the house for, like an hour, 'Oh, oh, oh!'
(Now this kid is doing a hysterical duck walk and groaning.)

"My Dad called the middle wife.
She delivers babies, but she doesn't have a sign on the car like the Domino's man.
They got my Mom to lie down in bed like this."
(Then Erica lies down with her back against the wall.)

"And then, pop! My Mom had this bag of water she kept in there in case he got thirsty, and it just blew up and spilled all over the bed, like psshhheew!"
(This kid has her legs spread with her little hands miming water flowing away. It was too much!)

"Then the middle wife starts saying 'push, push,' and 'breathe, breathe.
They started counting, but never even got past ten.
Then, all of a sudden, out comes my brother.
He was covered in yucky stuff that they all said it was from Mom's play-center, so there must be a lot of toys inside there."

Then Erica stood up, took a big theatrical bow and returned to her seat.
I'm sure I applauded the loudest.
Ever since then, when it's show-and-tell day, I bring my camcorder, just in case another "Middle Wife" comes along.

Now you have two choices...laugh and close this page or pass this along to someone else to spread the laughs. I know what I did!!!Live every day as if it is your LAST chance to make someone happy!

1 Week later

Nothing new going on here.
My youngest turned 24 on Friday Sept 14 but stayed at a friends since Thursday night.
Still working on my membership cards after just about threwing my typewritter out the window!!
I had to finally change the correction type on it after nearly 6 years since I had done it & didn't remember how to get it to work again after 1 hour I finally figured it out & was ready to go at it again!!!
Well no joke today so I'm signing off & going to do some Blog hopping!!!

Sunday, September 09, 2007

Blah Sunday!!!

Well it's been a couple of day's since my last quick post.
Selena you are in all our prayer's!!

Got pretty much of the computer stuff done but still have more to do! LOL
Will be taking a break from it because this week I have over 600 Membership cards to type up for 2008 for the Fire Company which consist of Active & Social members and than some Life Members!!!
It wouldn't be bad if I would have taken typing up in school along time ago!!! LOL
After I get all the names on them I got to go back and put numbers on them all.

Not much else going on so I'll leave you with another joke my sister sent me, just for us old ladies!!

An older lady was somewhat lonely and decided she needed a pet to keep her company.
So, off to the pet shop she went. She searched and searched.
None of the pets seemed to catch her interest, except this ugly frog As she walked by the jar he was in, she looked and he winked at her.
He whispered, 'I'M SO LONELY, TOO.

The old lady figured, what the heck!
She hadn't found anything else. So, she bought the frog.
She placed him in the car, on the front seat beside her.

As she was slowly driving down the road, the frog whispered to her
So! The old lady figured, WHAT THE HECK, and kissed the frog.
IMMEDIATELY the frog turned into an absolutely gorgeous, sexy, young, handsome prince.


She's old....... NOT DEAD!!!!!

Talk to you all later!!! HUGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm Pooped!

Boy is every muscle in my body aching!
You just can realize how dirty things get after 2 years of not being moved! LOL
But it's all clean now!! But my small upright vacuum broke.
I had to take apart the old computer stand because it was a L shaped one & WAY TO HEAVY TO MOVE MYSELF! Got it in the craft room but not back together will do it later.
Got my new stand moved over & got the computer & everything connected back up & running!
Still have to install the new DSL modem & external hard drive but right now I'm just not in the mood to sit & concentrate on doing it!!!!
I'm just thankful to have got it this far done!! LOL
Well thats it for now!
I'm off to do my daily blog hopping!
Later Gator!!!!!

Friday, August 31, 2007


Yesterday my son did bring my computer stand boxes up for me and I spent the afternoon getting everything out of the boxes to make sure everything was there and separating all the cotton pickin screws & other hardware & stuck them in small containers with their parts # on them.
Today I got it together & have to wait for whenever he's home to help me flip it over & nail the back to it! After I'm done posting here I'm going to finish putting the drawers together that way they are finished so hopefully by Sunday I can put this old desk in my craft room & use it for my sewing machine & crafting projects! Than the fun begins by taking the computer, printer apart & rehooking it all up with my new external hard drive & the new monitor for DSL on the new stand!!!
Thank you all who stopped by & left me comments!!!
My front flower took me along time to get done doing a hour each morning of weeding weeds & morning glory vines that are every once in a while peeping thru!
I'll never plant them there again!!!
They were nice when they grew up over the arbor but not when they took over the whole bed!
This year I put artificial vines on the arbor & planted marigolds in the garden.
Well better get going I'm not getting anything done sitting here!
Till later See YA!

Dull & ticked

Not much going on I'm just so darn ticked that I have my computer stand sitting in the garage since Friday & can't get my son to bring it upstairs so I can get it put together & get everything set up with my computer , new DSL monitor & external hard drive!!!
Sure the boxes are very heavy I managed to get them to the doorway but I want to get this all straightened out in here!!!! It sure sucks when you've got a bad back & knee's! LOL

Oh well on a better note my niece's girlfriend emailed me this and I thought I'd share it since it made me laugh!

It has long been contended that there are male jokes and thereAre female jokes.
And there are unisex jokes.
Here is one I Consider a true female joke.
A woman was sitting at a bar enjoying an after work cocktail with her girlfriends when an exceptionally tall, handsome, extremely sexy middle-aged man entered.

He was so striking that the woman couldnot take her eyes off him.
The young-at-heart man noticed her overlyattentive stare and walked directly toward her.
(As all men will)
Before she could offer her apologies for so rudely staring, heleaned over and whispered to her, "I'll do anything, absolutely anything, that you want me to do, no matter how kinky, for $20.00 only on one condition.

Flabbergasted, the woman asked what the condition was.
The man replied, you have to tell me what you want me to do in just“three words.”
The woman considered his proposition for a moment, and then slowly removed a $20.00 bill from her purse, which she pressed into theman's hand along with her address.

She looked deeply into his eyes,and slowly and meaningfully said....“Clean my house."

2 Days in a Row!

Well here he is Shirley my pampered little Foxy Bear!!! The pic is from 2 years ago!!!

Well I'm managing another post with another little goodie my sister sent me! LOL

Beautifully stated...
As we grow up, we learn that even the one person that wasn't supposed to ever let you down probably will.
You will have your heart broken probably more than once and it's harder every time.
You'll break hearts too, so remember how it felt when yours was broken.
You'll fight with your best friend.
You'll blame a new love for things an old one did.
You'll cry because time is passing too fast, and you'll eventually lose someone you love.
So take too many pictures, laugh too much, and love like you've never been hurt because every sixty seconds you spend upset, is a minute of happiness you want get back.

Well thats it for tonight!

Well I'm trying getting better at this!!!!

Wow! I'm managing another post!!! LOL
My sister email this to me and I thought I'd share it here because it rings so true!!!!!

Just checking in

A minister passing through his church in the middle of the day, Decided to pause by the altar and see who had come to pray.
Just then the back door opened, a man came down the aisle, The minister frowned as he saw the man hadn't shaved in a while.
His shirt was kind a shabby and his coat was worn and frayed, the man knelt, he bowed his head, Then rose and walked away.
In the days that followed, each noon time came this chap, each time he knelt just for a moment, A lunch pail in his lap.

Well, the minister's suspicions grew, with robbery a main fear, He decided to stop the man and ask him, 'What are you doing here?'
The old man said, he worked down the road. Lunch was half an hour.
Lunchtime was his prayer time, For finding strength and power.
'I stay only moments, see, because the factory is so far away; as I kneel here talking to the Lord, This is kind a what I say:

The minister feeling foolish, told Jim, that was fine.
He told the man he was welcome To come and pray just anytime Time to go, Jim smiled, said 'Thaks.' He hurried to the door.
The minister knelt at the altar, he'd never done it before.
His cold heart melted, warmed with love, and met with Jesus there.
As the tears flowed, in his heart, he repeated old Jim's prayer:

Past noon one day, the minister noticed that old Jim hadn't come.
As more days passed without Jim, he began to worry some.
At the factory, he asked about him, learning he was ill.

The hospital staff was worried, But he'd given them a thrill.
The week that Jim was with them, Brought changes in the ward His smiles, a joy contagious. Changed people, were his reward.
The head nurse couldn't understand why Jim was so glad, when no flowers, calls or cards came, Not a visitor he had.
The minister stayed by his bed, He voiced the nurse's concern: No friends came to show they cared. He had nowhere to turn.

Looking surprised, old Jim spoke up and with a winsome smile; 'the nurse is wrong, she couldn't know, that he's in here all the while everyday at noon He's here, a dear friend of mine, you see, He sits right down, takes my hand, Leans over and says to me:

If this blesses you, pass it on.
Many people will walk in and out of your life, but only true friends will leave footprints in your heart May God hold you in the palm of His hand and Angels watch over you.
Please pass this page on to your frends & loved ones.
If you aren't ashamed Jesus said, 'If you are ashamed of me,' I will be ashamed of you before my Father.' So this is me ... Just Checking In

New Year Maybe I can do better Blogging!!

Hopefully I can get my butt in gear and do this blogging better!
Will try anyway
But Homelife here hasn't been to great with being sick and finely feeling a little better now!
BUT After Tuesday night I had a nice big surprise and hopefully things here at my house can get back to normal[Some what anyway] my youngest son's girlfriend has FINALLY moved out!!!!
I'm so glad she lived here for a year with her 5 year old son, and didn't work or even pay rent or do a dam thing here to help out, so my bills have added up, but hopefully now I can get them straightened out without spending extra money on electric,water, food,etc.
I tried many times by telling her to move out and only to found out that I'd have to go to an Attorney and sure didn't have the money to do that either.
My son is starting to do better to! LOL
Enough rambling for tonight!
