It's not the things that can be bought that are life's richest treasures;  It's just the little "heart gifts" that money cannot measure.  A cheerful smile, a friendly word, a sympathetic nod are priceless little treasures from the storehouse of our God.  They are the things that can't be bought with silver or with gold, for thoughfulness and kindness and love are never sold.  They are the priceless things in life for which no one can pay, and the giver finds rich recompense in giving them away.------Helen Steiner Rice

Good Friday morning!!  I am ready for the weekend!  I hope everyone has been having a good week.  I can't believe that Casey was eliminated on American Idol last night.  I liked him.  I am sad to see him go.  My prediction was totally wrong.  Goes to show you what I know.  At least James, Lauren and Scotty are still there.  The others are good too but I like them the best.  Now we are down to 5.

More beach pics.  Mike, Tyler and I playing around on the beach.

I would like to wish a very "Happy Birthday" to two ladies today.  Happy Birthday Edna Clary and Amy Bonillas!  Have a super fun day and weekend!!

Tyler turned 18 months yesterday!  Time sure if flying by!

Prayer requests:  Please keep in your prayer all of the people who have been affected by the terrible tornadoes.  Pray they get the help they need soon and for comfort and strength to the families who have lost a loved one or have completely lost everything they own.

2 Corinthians 1 verses 2 - 4:  May God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ mightily bless each one of you, and give you peace.  What a wonderful God we have--he is the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the source of every mercy, and the one who so wonderfully comforts and strengthens us in our hardships and trials.  And why does he do this?  So that when others are troubled, needing our sympathy and encouragement, we can pass on to them this same help and comfort God has given us.

Read the bible in a year:  Today......2 Kings 23 - 25.  Saturday.....1 Chronicles 1 - 2.

Have a fantabulous day everyone!  Today is another gift from God and He is so Good!!

Question......Did you watch the Royal wedding?  I turned my TV on this morning so I could see what Kate's dress looked like.  I will watch the highlights of the wedding when I get home this afternoon.

I have been watching the Royal wedding all afternoon. I was too lazy to get up early in the morning to watch it. I thought it was just beautiful. April is having a great time there with all the action going on. She will have a lot of stories to tell when she gets back. I was also sad that Casey is off of Idol too.

Hello, Hello! What a day - it was all about the wedding. Personally I was NOT willing to get up at 4 a.m. to watch the coverage, so instead I programmed the VCR and taped it. Sami & I have had so much going on and we've been exhausted, so we slept in this morning. Thankfully we were able to watch the tape of the wedding - it was amazing! I'd watched Charles & Diana's wedding too. Our church is starting up Saturday evening services this Saturday - pretty exciting. So now we're up to 3 services a week! We are growing by leaps & bounds. Sami has a babysitting job tomorrow night during service - she's super excited about that. I just love Helen Steiner Rice - thanks for sharing that poem from her :) I love all the pics from the beach too - they've all been so great. I'd have loved to have been able to tag along :) Our dinner last night with the 'girls' was great. It was kind of a goodbye dinner for the one lady that has been battling lung cancer - she's going into a nursing home (it's located near her one son and about 6 hours one way from here - she's not doing well and this is most likely the last time we'll see her). We had so much good food last night! I also got quite a few congratulations for this Sunday's commissioning service too. Hard to believe all my time of studying, all that work, is coming to the ultimate end! Oh, the bumps along the way too. One of my friends told me she knew this was definitely a call from God because if I had been persuing this on my own, with all that I've been through along the way, I'd have given up a long time ago. How right she is. I've been doing a lot of reflection the past few days about all of this - I find myself so humbled that God would call me to this. Me? Who am I to do this? God obviously knows best. The weight of the call has been pressing on me - I can't even put into words what I feel. WOW. I want to thank you, Leslie, for the flowers - they are beautiful. I've taken pictures of them. You are so sweet to do that. Just wish you could be here to watch the commissioning on Sunday. I'm nervous and excited all at the same time. I was also told I have to say a few words at both services Sunday. You have a great rest of the day. Love you so much! (((HUGS))) "Angel" Linda
