Love Gives

Love is extravagant in the price it is willing to pay , the time it is willing to give and the hardships it is willing to endure, and the strength it is willing to spend. Love never thinks in terms of “ how little” but always in terms of “ how much.” Love gives, love knows and love lasts.

Father's Day

Well it is coming upon us quickly. i sent my Dad a card already- it is a b-b-q card :) because he loves him some meat on the BBQ.

we will be hosting S's dad and step mom for the weekend, and SSD1 will be arriving on saturday for a cullinary delight, He already wowed S's mom and PJ when they were her at the end of May with a fabulous Pork roast and spaetzle ( a german noodle) roasted asperagus and nice apples roasted alongside the pork roast. I think this is the same dinner request for the men folk!

J is " working" and this is a good thing , he is tired and done, sleeping and getting up to do it again every day- according to HH this leaves little time for other ways to get into trouble, a good thing. He has someone picking him up and he is working hard everyday. saving his pennies for a car.

I need to get S something but what? well I will ask him tomorrow or tonight what would make him happy? He is a great Dad to all our children and I am so blessed to have him in my life.

Equiping yourself

Each of us may be sure that if God sends us on stony paths He will provide us with strong shoes, and He will not send us out on any journey for which He does not equip us well.

long time no blog

I am having some type of upper arm trouble- right arm, I finally gave in and went to the doc today! he took x-ray and rx'd a bit of pain meds I am hopeful to get some relief in a few days. I treated myself to a few days off the computer and the mouse and all, did some ice and heat and laid low.

we have been having severe weather. yesterday we got hail , I am posting a few photos and upload a you-tube soon. it was pretty loud and hard. Today we had tornadoes touch down in Elbert. We have friends who are at the scout camp ( working) they were safe but did get a bit of very bad weather i am sure very scarey too.
