It's my favorite holiday! It is so humbling to think that God's Son would choose to leave all his glory in Heaven to come to this wicked world to be born in a barn. Even then, the world had no room for Him.

I love decorating my home for Christmas! All the decorations bring me such joy. But as much joy as they bring me, I am always glad to put them away! Crazy!

I especially love being with my family! Great times and great memories!

Enjoy your Christmas! But remember the Reason for the Season! Without Him, there would be no Christmas

This summer has been so very busy! Wow! Josh had summer school at home to finish Algebra I. So glad I don't homeschool. Josh also began parent-taught Driver's Ed. That is going really well and I am proud of him. He really wants to drive. LOL! Josh also began his junior year in a new school. He also lost a week and a half of his summer, too. :) The new school began on August 23.

Our church took our teens to a Youth Revival at Parkside Baptist Church. They heard some awesome preaching there! Then we loaded them up in the van and took them to Oklahoma a week later for a Youth Conference at Southwest Baptist Church. There they had more awesome preaching and fun activities. Our youth department has really been saturated with the Word of God this summer!

We took Josh and a few friends to Six Flags! I love roller coasters! Rob says he thinks he may be too old for Six Flags, but I hope I never get too old for Six Flags! I always have a great time there even in the heat. And it was 102 degrees the day we went! It's almost torture, but here in Texas, you ain't at Six Flags if it ain't hot!

After Rob and I made the decision to enroll Josh in Bible Baptist Christian Academy in Rendon, we began to pray for a job for myself. We wanted something along HWY 1187, anywhere from Crowley to Mansfield. It was my plan to try to start working in a bank again. Almost two weeks before school started, one of their administrators called me and offered me a job to teach in their school! We were so excited! Only God drops a job in your lap like that. And we knew right away it was the answer to our prayer! God is always right on time.

So, I guess I have you caught up on everything. Until next time..............

Not Sure How To Feel...

I kinda feel a little lost, a lot sad, and a little bit of all emotions. It is really strange. Fundamental Baptist Academy closed its doors for the last time this school year. Even though I understand all the reasons and even agree with some, it is hard to take in. The academy has really been my life the past nine years. I can only imagine what the other ladies are feeling since they have been teaching there much longer than me. I graduated from this school. I trust that all this will work together for my good because God promised me it would. Romans 8:28.

I'm not sure what I am going to do with myself now. Maybe I will get a job. Rob thinks I may want to because he thinks I will get bored at home. I sure will enjoy finding out if that will be true. LOL!

My Mother's Day

My day actually started on Saturday. That's when they gave me my gifts. After many years of asking for a corning wear cooking set, they gave me one. LOL! That's ok, at least they knew what I wanted. :) Josh gave me a pink zebra striped phone cover for my cell phone. Love love love that!
Later that night, I went to the Mother's Day Banquet with our church ladies. It was a wonderful night!
After church, we hosted a cookout with our family. Lots of good food and good times.

There are three weeks of school left! I cannot believe it. This year has gone by so quickly and we have experienced some changes. But, God always knows what is best.

This computer is not shutting itself off right now,so I am posting. Woo Hoo! LOL! Mother's Day is Sunday. I would like to take the time to wish Lisa a Happy Mother's Day. She isn't my mom, but she "inherited" five grown children when she married my dad. Thanks for being so good to Dad. Most of all thanks for making him happy. Love you, Lisa.

I have been missing my mom a lot in the last week. Not because of Mother's Day, but I think because the anniversary of the death of my dad-in-love. That is today. It's been 2 years. It's funny because the anniversary Mom's death came and went and I was ok. Bud's is here and I want them both back. But I could never ask for them to return here. They are with the Lord and have perfect bodies without cancer! I love that part best for both of them. I remember when Mom passed. Josh was two. I was sitting in a chair and crying. Josh came over to me and patted my knee and said,"Granny has a perfect body with no cancer." Right out of the mouth of a babe! I always talked to him about Heaven. Who knew that God would use that to give me comfort thru my baby? God is so good.

Hug your mom.

I know I said in one of my last posts that I would start posting more.  I'm so sorry I lied to you.  I really didn't mean to.  We have been having some issues with our computer.  Rob finally found a few problems and it is working fine right now.  I pray that it will continue to do so.  I checked my e-mail the other day and I had 687 messages!  OH MY WORD!  I may have wore that delete button out! LOL!
School is going along great.  I cannot believe that it is almost Spring Break!  January thru March is always the longest and hardest time for us at school because there are no breaks during that time.  Well, it went quickly and easily this year.  I think all this snow helped it along.  We have had 2 bad weather days.  I have been so excited because we are getting so much snow this year.  WE HAD A WHITE CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!!  I never thought I would see that day.  It was beautiful.  Then, earlier this month, we got 8 inches.  That was a record breaker in these parts!  And of course last week we got another inch or two.  That one depended on where you lived.  LOL!  We really have had winter in Texas this year.  But, I have to say I am ready for Spring.
