Moms Birthday

I am about a week in posting this but I wanted to tell all my bloggy friends what we did for moms birthday. Moms birthday was on the 16th, let me back up and say my dads birthday was on the 12th, so this was an extremely hard week for us especially my mom. Anyway my brother, my sister and I got together and talked about what we wanted to do for her birthday. We wanted to do something special for her. So my brother who lives 2 hours away said he would rather us come down there. I called my mom and said "Mom I want to go see Ricky and I dont know how to get there so you will have to go with me." And guess what it worked. My sister and grandma and the kids went on down about lunch time that Saturday and mom and I left later. We got there and my sisters vehicle was hidden and I made her go in the house first and boy was she surprised. We had dinner and cake and ice cream and a good time of fellowship together. It made her feel so good and she had a wonderful time. Before we left we took some pictures with her so I thought I would post some of them today.

Beautiful Christian Sister

So I didnt really have anything to post about so I thought I would post this poem I received in an email a while back.

by Maya Angelou

'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
that a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean livin,'
I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say.. 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain...
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!

Pretty is as Pretty does... but beautiful is just plain beautiful!

BW is sick...

We had to head off to the doctor this morning. BW can not talk,he complains of his throat hurting, he is coughing, and running a low fever. They tested him for strep throat but that came back negative. He is wheezing and congested. They seem to think all the drainage is causing his voice to be gone and his throat to hurt. He will have to take breathing treatments and another medicine for a several days. He didnt sleep well last night we were up three times so hopefully he will sleep much better tonight or maybe even take a nap today.
