On a serious note:

Some people by their lifestyles seem

forordained to die young.

It was one of those deaths that John Yeats had in mind

when he wrote of a friend’s lost son:

 “What made us dream that he could comb gray hair?”

Even if we are not totally shocked by reckless lives lost early,

it is still heartbreaking to

think of so much potential, gone forever.

Amazing Scanning Electron Microscope Photos

From the book ‘Micro cosmos, ‘created by Brandon Brill from London. This book includes many scanning electron microscope (SEM) images of insects, human body parts and household items. These are the most amazing images of what is too small to see with the naked eye. 2-2-11

Thank You God!

Norma has been in the hospital for three months, two and a half in ICU.  Just moments ago she arrived at a rehab facility.

Lori bought her a new outfit since all her clothes are now too big.  I know it must feel wonderful to get out of that lovely hospital gown she was in for three months.

From seeing her when she was so bad, my friends, this is a miracle.  I think she looks great even without her usual hair style and makeup.

I am excited, thrilled and giving thanks. Please join me in this prayer:

Our Heavenly Father, Thank you for bringing Norma Sue back to us again. Please complete the work you have started and restore her to even better health than when this all began.  We love you Lord.

In Jesus’ name, Amen

Fighting Fire With Water

April 28th, 2011 Comments off

David,  Lori’s husband, (far left) found a way to help during the recent fires in Texas.  Is there a way the rest of us can help those who have been affected by the fires, floods and tornadoes?  We may not be able to hand deliver supplies, but we can give.

If everyone gives a little, it will help a lot.

Me  and my team loading nearly 500 cases of water and supplies up for the firefighters up in the PK Lake area in Texas. Special thanks to the students of Weatherford High school for helping us unload and distributing the supplies!

Frosting on the Cake and Pleasantries Too

Eve’s Quickie Suggestion for the Day!

If you buy a container of cake  frosting from the store,  one idea suggested by some unknown someone, is to whip it with your mixer for a few minutes.

You can double it in size so  you can frost more cake/cupcakes with the same amount. (You also eat less sugar and calories per serving.)

The check out girl at the Supermarket told me that she adds Cool Whip to her Lemon frosting and that it is delicious.  Unsolicited pleasant conversation from a check out girl?  I liked that little exchange.
