He Has Risen

Somewhere in the distance I heard a hammer ring as they drove the nails in His hands and in His feet. As the crowd gathered round saying away with Him. Jesus knew down in His heart that He would live again! He has risen He has risen that old tomb is empty now. All that remains are grave clothes and bloodstains that old tomb that old tomb is empty now.
As He lay there in the tomb the soldiers camped around God was making plans to send His angels down. They hurried down from Heaven and didn't make a sound. But when the spirit spoke to Him, He got up and walked around.

He has risen He has risen that old tomb is empty now. All that remains are grave clothes and bloodstains that old tomb that old tomb is empty now.

He's in the Midst

As you travel down life's road.
He is with you every day.
With every step you take He's walked ahead of you.
And every night as you lay down
Angels are camping all around.
I'll never be alone for He is in the midst.

Into the prison they were thrown.
Paul and Silas weren't alone.
They knew their God was there
And He would see them through.
So when the walls began to shake
And all their chains just fell away.
They cried behold Our God for He is in the midst.

He's In The Midst
He's in the midst of our storm.
He's in the valley we walk through.
Where two or three are gathered in His name
...He'll be there too.
When you feel so all alone,
He is standing next to you.
He's with us now
...our Lord, He's in the midst.

We had a tornado here today. It didn't touch down but scared the stew out of us. We were in a store and our kids were home. The emergency Broadcast System came on over the radio and said that a tornado was on the ground in Tunnel Hill. I called my daughter and told her to get the kids in the hall because there was a tornado . So we got home as fast as we could. The tornado touched down 2 miles from my house! We drove through golf ball size hail. By the time we got home, the tornado had passed and the kids were fine. Thank God for His protection.

Going on a Date

Hubby likes to carry me out on dates when we can afford it. Sometimes it is just out to get a bite to eat. I love doing this! I also love to go out with my family! God has blessed us so much! We are going to be able to get our van fixed. After six months of sitting in my back yard, she is gonna come back to life!

When the world says,
"Give up,"
Hope whispers,
"Try it one more time."
~Author Unknown

Hope is that thing with
feathers that perches
in the soul and sings the tune
without the words and
never stops... at all.
~Emily Dickinson

Hope is grief's
best music.

You Make me Smile!

I love this song!

What relaxes You?

I am sitting here taking a short break from house work. I am listening to a spiritual relaxation cd. It plays Christian music and ocean waves. Very relaxing. I like to listen to music or pray or sometimes write to relax. There is nothing like the sound of the ocean waves splashing against the sand.

I home school my kids. It is a journey, a learning process. I am learning to be more patient with my children and not expect them to learn everything over night. Teaching can be frustrating when your child struggles to learn. You feel like they are not learning anything but they are. You just have to take a deep breath and keep trying, keep trudging on and never give up. One day your child will master that skill and turn around and smile at you because you taught them and never gave up!

I love Spring! I love watching the trees and flowers come to life! I love hearing the birds chirping in the early morning! I love to look outside my window and see the hummingbirds hovering need the feeder. I love listening to the laughter of my children as they play in the yard. Even the Spring showers bring me joy!

The Blizzard of 1993

Today is the 17 year anniversary of the Blizzard of 1993. I was 7 months pregnant. It was like 70 degrees that day and no one really believed the forecasters. At 8 pm the bottom fell out of the thermometer and the snow began to fall. My husband said it wasn't going to snow that much. I said I hope it snows on your head! We woke up at around 1 am and it was snowing on my husband's head! We had lost power. It started to get cold in our trailer. The only heat we had was electric. The next morning, we decided to go to our neighbor's house who had a kerosene heater. It was so hard to walk in the snow that was up to my belly, remember I was 7 months pregnant. My husband went back down to our trailer and brought a bunch of food up to our neighbor's house. He also helped our other elderly neighbors walk up there. The man fell several times before he made it to the house. They finally restored power to our trailer three days later but we still didn't have phone service. So, my father-in-law came to get us and carried us to his house. About three days later, they finally got our phone turned back on. We came home to busted water pipes. Luckily, a friend of ours helped us fix that. My husband had to draw unemployment because the roof collapsed on his plant. It made us very thankful for the simple things in life. We will never forget this as long as we live.
