Happy Birthday, Grace!


Happy birthday to my baby!  12 wonderful and amazing years.  God is so good.  I never ever dreamed He had you waiting for me.  Thank you, Lord. 

Not much else happening here this morning.  Just planning for Grace’s celebration. The Horn’s are coming over and we will be having homemade pizza and birthday cake. 

Enjoy your day and God bless.

Happy Birthday


Happy birthday to my baby boy!!! MawMaw loves you so very much.  You will never know the joy you have brought into all our lives.  I pray for you every day.   There are no words to describe how happy my heart is when you look at me and say those magic words “I love you, MawMaw!”

Happy Birthday, Alexius


Today we will be celebrating our granddaughter’s 6th birthday.  It is amazing how quickly they grow up.  Weather here this week has been pretty chilly.  Yesterday’s high was about 35 degrees with lots of wind.  COLD!  We have had some snow, rain, ice and lots of wind.  Hopefully today will be better, at least the sun is shining.   I have one load of clothes on the line and another washing as I type.  We have had to dry clothes inside all week.  YUCK! 

I better get busy.  Lots to get done before party time.  Enjoy your day and God bless.

Happy Birthday


Yesterday was my Julie’s birthday.  We celebrated by having a picnic lunch at Groundhog Mountain with our friends, the Horns.  The building you see behind the kids is the lookout tower.


This is one of the things you can see from where the tower is.  The mountain in the distance is called Buffalo Mountain.  I think you can probably guess why.


We had birthday cake, hot dogs, chips and all the things that go with it.  We are so blessed to have friends like the Horns.  Their kids and our kids have so much fun together.



After the picnic, it was time for some work.  We went to Levering Orchard in Ararat, Va.  Time to pick some cherries.  We had a great time.  It is a pick your own orchard or you can purchase them already picked.  It is, of course, cheaper if you pick.  Besides who would want to miss all that fun.  We picked almost 9 lb. or the equivalent of 2 gal.  They are very good.  After getting all hot picking cherries, we stopped on the way back at this little store for an ice cream cone.  It certainly tasted delicious.   All in all, it was a great birthday day.  Prayerfully tomorrow I will be making a post about a beautiful new baby boy, with lots of pictures.  I am making sure I have my camera with me.  We are getting ready to leave as I type this.  I need to be there by 5:00, as she is scheduled to be at the hospital by 7:00.  I know I have asked before, but remember to pray for us.  Take care and God bless.

Happy Birthday




Happy Birthday to my sweet baby girl!!  Yesterday was party day.  Best Friends celebrating together.  Life is good.  Yellow cake with chocolate icing and only a few sprinkles (just the way she likes it).   Yesterday, Hubby and his brother went out to cut more wood and today he is going with our friend from church.  Hopefully lots to split and stack.  He is deer hunting this morning , something he truly enjoys, and something we all truly enjoy eating.  Good Luck, hon.  I’m not sure what the girls and I will get into yet.  There is always something to do around here.   Tomorrow we hear another trial sermon from the candidate for pastor.  We will have another fellowship meal after church.  We also start our new study on Revelation from John MacArthur tomorrow.  I think the book of Revelation is one of the hardest books in the bible to understand and probably the most misunderstood.  Hopefully, I will know a little more about it when this study is finished.   Next Sunday we will vote on the pastor.  I’m still not sure how to vote Yes. or NO.  I’m still praying.  I think this is a very BIG decision and I want to make sure I’m on the same page as God.  Pray that all will go well and that we, as a church, will vote according to God’s will.  Well, better get busy.  God Bless.
