Good movies to see.. We have enjoyed these

Movies.. Instead of having cable.. we do Netflix.. (Gotta love netflix) and buy DVDs at thrift stores, yard sales, pawn shops, kmart and wal mart for way cheap.This way i know what we are watching..

Facing the Giants Posterthis has become a favorite.. A must see..its about...A losing coach with an underdog football team faces their giants of fear and failure on and off the field to surprising results... All for God.. There is nothing that God Can Not Do.

Canning, visiting with the ladies, etc .. August 25...

Last nite i made .. well canned peaches and pears off our trees. well the ones the birds didn't get to.. This is our first year/ house having fruit trees.. so its a learning process all the way through. So yesterday i harvested some fruit and last nite i made fruit cocktail light syrup. i had a little bit in a container that didn't fit in the jars.. well this am when my son Joey found it.... it was gone.. literally.. he ate it and tried getting a jar.. So i know that is yummy..

A QUICK CATCH UP.. August 2012


  • ·         Boy I am slacking.. it’s been a busy few weeks.. Kids started school and I started work. I’m am a part time crossing guard.. It happened to be the perfect job for me.. I have a few hours.. little extra cash, Time outside of the home, and helping others. Boy has it been hot the past week or 2. Not used to the heat either. On top of that i met someone today and they said.." did you those cross guarding vests you have are out of date by 6 Years?" all i could say was ooo. Her husband got her a new one that is not out of date and you can see a mile away.. well i got a new one and here it is... 
Me in my over sized vest.

Todays lesson...Aug 24,2012

Today I have learned a valuable lesson from one of the students I cross everyday for the past 3 yrs.. Today I decided to start talking with him and have a conversation. I asked his name. You know what he said to me?!" After 3 years... " Is all he said. I couldn't believe he remembers it been 3 yrs. He just stood and looked at me.. I was stumped. All I could say to him was..." This is only part time and I was under the assumption that my boss who normally has this spot would be back. So I have just stayed distant. " that's all I could say. And for that I'm sorry. I've always said hi to all the kids and made short talk. Very short.. Cause when things are temporary I try not to get to friendly or knowing names unless I need to.
Now all I can do I pray to God to help me change that. Know now matter how temporary something may seem its important to always have that Christian heart and to be less reserved.. More open.. Friendly... And well caring. Do Not Judge Or Add Do Not Assume.!!
