Nana's Flowers

Recently when we were home, our son learned to mow on his Gaga's John Deere.


Afterwards I stopped and smelled the roses...I mean...hydrangeas...and a few others I have no idea what they are. ;)








Oil on Destin, FL Beaches

This is so disturbing....

This is such a beautiful beach, and I so hate seeing this beautiful white sand covered with oil blobs!

God YOU Reign!

Today is the Day!

Matthew 6:24-25 (NIV) "No one can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and Money."

The Power of Words

A careless word may kindle strife;
A cruel word may wreck a life.
A bitter word may hate instill;
A brutal word may smite and kill.
A gracious word may smooth the way;
A joyous word may light the day.
A timely word may lessen stress;
A loving word may heal and bless.

Choral Recital Spring 2010

Our daughter had her spring choral recital last night with the School of Song, under the instruction of Barbara Harper Boudreaux. We traveled about 1 hr to the South Lenoir High School auditorium in Deep Run, NC. It was a very nice auditorium, and the children did a wonderful job!

There are three different age groups:
Beginners: Ages 5-8
Intermediate: Ages 9-12
Advanced: Ages 13-18

The selection that our daughter's group sang:
Oye la Musica...............................Jay Althouse
Gaudeamus Hodie........................Natalie Sleeth/Arr. Carl Strommen
A Joyful Song................................Mary Lynn Lightfoot
She Sings......................................Amy Feldman Bernon
Riversong.....................................Roger Emerson

Our favorite was She Sings. It is so beautiful!!

Here are a few snaps....



Jordan's friend from her choral group:


The cutest thing was these three children in the younger group. These boys kept aggravating this little girl. I don't know if it was a brother, sister, and friend...but they stole that part of the show....

Sometimes a girl just needs a lift. Sometimes a girl just needs a change.

I decided to go blondie. It has been yrs since I've had blonde hair. I like it a lot, and David loves it. So that is all that matters to me. :)

Those grays were coming through more and more, and not only that...honestly, it was time for a change! It only signifies a LOT of change and "lifting" going on within me. The lifting is not only my hair color, but also I've been receiving a "lifting" spiritually. The dead places in my soul are becoming more alive by the power of Christ. Which, has nothing to do with my hair at all. :)

Changes that I welcome, and changes that are only about me and between me and the Lord. He's an awesome God!

So here's the pic of the blondie...


The boy is in the back seat giving the "thumbs up". It appears he is eating his fist though. haha!
