"I wonder where you can get those bumper stickers...."

You need to 'wonder' no longer, Amy!

It's "WE, THE PEOPLE" - not "Me the President" bumper stickers (click)

Today is mrsdd’s birthday.

We had an early family celebration on Sunday. The theme was dress like your favorite Rock and Roll star. I dressed like a Beach Boy and carried a pocket tape recorder which played Beach Boy’s songs.

Mrsd has become my California Girl!

Does mashed potatoes and chicken gravy come with that Southern Fried Chicken, by any chance?

Thanks, I’ll share your comments, graphics and music with mrsdd when she gets home from work.

Our daughter came up with the theme. We had a great time. I was going to post a pic of the group, but I’m having a problem with my photobucket program. I’ll try again later.

Again, thank you.

It's really good to 'see' you, jaycee, but please don't do much too soon. This bronchial bug that has hit a lot of people takes it's toll AND it's time to heal.

I have a few friends (local) that did get back on their feet but just barely, after their first round of antibiotics. For some it took two rounds, others it took three. It really doesn't want to go away!

Just ask Conor! :)

Happy Warm and Fuzzy Wednesday





Today, an Israeli friend of mine said: "Life is a long hallway, with doors all the way down, on each side. YOU chose which doors you will open, and which ones you leave shut. The doors to darkness and ugliness will only engulf you if you open them and choose to go inside. May all the doors you choose to open be doors of blessings and peace." Shalom.

Trust And Sadness
May 26, 2011

In early 1994, when our family found out that the US soccer team would be playing in Michigan in the World Cup, we knew we had to go.

What a great time we had as we went to the Pontiac Silverdome to see the US take on Switzerland! It was one of the most remarkable events of our lives.

There was just one problem. One of our four children, 9-year-old Melissa, couldn’t join us. While we enjoyed the event, it was not the same without her. Even in our joy at being there, we felt sadness because of her absence.

As I think back on that day, I’m reminded that our sadness then is a little like our sadness now that Melissa is gone from this life—having died in a car accident 8 years after that game. While we cherish the help of the “God of all comfort” (2 Cor. 1:3), even that great comfort doesn’t change the reality of her empty chair at family gatherings. Scripture doesn’t tell us that God wipes away our sadness in this life, but it does tell us that God is faithful and will comfort us.

If you have lost a loved one, lean heavily on God’s comfort. Keep trusting Him. But know that it’s okay to feel sadness for this absence. Consider it one more reason to place your burdens on your loving heavenly Father.

I have been through the valley of weeping,
The valley of sorrow and pain;
But the God of all comfort was with me,
At hand to uphold and sustain. —Garlock

Earth has no sorrow that heaven does not feel.

Read: 2 Corinthians 1:3-11

Even in laughter the heart may sorrow. —Proverbs 14:13
Bible in a year:
1 Chronicles 28-29; John 9:24-41
