Good Tuesday morning!! Can you believe that we are already in June?  This year is flying by.  How was your 3-day weekend?  My family and I had a real good one.  Got a lot of things done, worked on my scrapbooking,  hung out with the family, had a tasty BBQ, rested my foot and spoiled my grandbaby Tyler.  Speaking of my little guy, here is his 7 month old picture.  I keep saying that he is getting more and more fun, but he really is.  He is such a happy boy.

Today is my friend Bill Cartwright's funeral.  Thank you for keeping the whole family in your prayers.  They have received lots of love and support and truly appreciate all of the prayers from you.  Please continue to pray for them today for strength, peace and comfort.

My friend Cathy Workman who is 38 years old with two children and is battling cancer is not doing well at all.  The doctors have now told Cathy and her husband that there is nothing more medically that they can do for her except to try to keep her comfortable and manage her symptoms.  They are talking about contacting Hospice now.  She is still fighting and the family has not given up hope.  This is a quote from her husband "Our hope is not yet exhausted, though.  Actually, we can never lose hope because we have an eternal kind of life that will continue forever beyond death."  They so very much appreciate your prayers for strength to get through this hard time.

Prayer requests:  Comfort for the Stiegemeyer Family for the loss of their father/grandfather, cousin Linda-just diagnosed with MS, Wayne & Trudy-health and anonymous-depression.

Psalms 95 verses 1, 2 & 3:  Oh, come, let us sing to the Lord!  Give a joyous shout in honor of the Rock of our salvation!  Come before him with thankful hearts.  Let us sing him psalms of praise.  For the Lord is a great God, the great King of all gods.

Have a terrific day everyone!  Today is another gift from God and He is so Good!  Thank you God for giving us a peace that passes all of our understanding.

What was the last dessert you made?  I made a cake this weekend with pudding in the middle and whip cream on top covered in fresh sliced strawberries.  So good!!

              IT'S MEMORIAL DAY ......

This is the day to remember and honor our fallen soldiers who have died for our Nation's service.  God bless all of the families who had a loved one or who have a loved one in our military service.  I know this is the day to remember but I also still want to thank those who have served and continue to serve.  Without you our country wouldn't have the freedom we know today.  Please say a prayer for the safety and protection of all our soldiers and their families today.

Today is another gift from God and He is so Good!

Good Saturday morning!!  WooHoo!!  The start of a 3 day weekend! Oh life is going to be really busy for us the next few weeks so I am thrilled to have a few days off to get ready for it all.  And yes....I am trying to rest my foot so it will get better. 

My sweet friends Peggy Severe and Brenda Grose (Bill Cartwright's daughter) came by to visit my handsome grandbaby Tyler.  We had a really nice visit and Tyler loved them.  I am so happy that you got to finally meet and hold him Bren.  Loved sharing more stories about your dad and laughing over the funny memories.  Peggy....Tyler is in love with your daughter Jenna!  :)

My awesome hubby made me a great dinner last night and we ate it on our back yard deck.  What a nice evening we was kind of cool.....especially for late May here in the Imperial Valley.  I'll take advantage of it when I can because I know the heat is coming!

Here is a picture of all of us from yesterday. Brenda, Tyler, me and Peggy

I would like to wish a very "Happy Birthday" to my friend Carla Paramo!!  Hope you have a super fun birthday Carla!  Enjoy your weekend!

Congratulations to my cousin Brittany on your engagement to Greg!!  So happy for you!

Psalms 92 verse 1 & 2:  It is good to say, "Thank you" to the Lord, to sing praises to the Lord who is above all gods.  Every morning tell him, "Thank you for your kindness," and every evening rejoice in all his faithfulness.

Have a super weekend everyone!!  Stay safe and have a lot of fun with your family!  Today is another gift from God and He is so Good!  See you again on Monday!

Anyone having a BBQ this weekend?  What are you grilling?  Yes we one on Sunday.

Good Friday morning!!  So happy that it is Friday and that I have a three day weekend coming!  Looking forward to hanging out with the family. 

As far as the doctor can tell there is nothing broken in my foot.  Yay!  Why is it hurting and swollen?  Who knows.  I may have tweaked it funny.  So I was told to give it another week and see if it gets any better.  If not we will take another x-ray and look at it again.  So I am going to rest it the best I can this weekend and see if it improves.  I am asking for prayer for it to heal and get better.

I have a BIG prayer request for you all.  My friend Cathy Workman who you have all prayed in the past for is not doing well at all in her battle with cancer.  She could really use our prayers right now.  Currently she is in one of the best cancer hospitals in America (Texas) fighting for her life.  She is a young woman with a very loving husband and two children, 11 and 8 years old.  It means a lot to this family and they certainly cherish your prayers.  It is such a comfort to know that so many people are lifting you up in prayer.  Thanks.

Guess who is seven months old today? sleeping beauty.  I took this picture of him yesterday. Isn't he precious?  Will have to get a picture with him and his 7 month cupcake today too.  Tyler wants to thank his friend Ethan Cosio for giving him new clothes and shoes.

Prayer request:  THAT THEY FIND A CURE FOR ALL CANCER SOON!!  We are praying that the melanoma vaccine works for me and is the break though they are looking for.  The researchers say they are so close.  So thankful that I am involved in the latest cutting edge may be a pain, and I might whine about it......but truly am grateful.

Psalms 89 verses 1 & 2: Forever and ever I will sing about the tender kindness of the Lord!  Young and old shall hear about your blessings.  Your love and kindness are forever; your truth is as enduring as the heavens.  verse 5:  All heaven shall praise your miracles, O Lord; myraids of angels will praise you for your faithfulness.

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

Who is your favorite character on Sesame Street??  I like them all!

Good Thursday morning!!  Thanks to everyone for keeping me in your prayers.  I went to the hospital early yesterday morning before I went to work and had my foot x-rayed.  I haven't heard any results yet.  My foot continues to hurt and is swollen.  It isn't throbbing though and other then that I feel fine.  Just waiting to hear and will try to get in to see the Dr. on Friday.

Wow!  What a great ending finale to American Idol!  Lee wins!  I am so happy for him.  I wished that both Lee and Crystal could of won.  They are both going to do well.  I always love the last show....they always seem to outdo themselves.

I wanted to give a shout out to everyone that yesterday was World Muliple Sclerosis day.  I have some friends who are very near and dear to my heart that are struggling with this disease.  I pray daily for them to either stay in remission or to go into remission.  It would be great if we could all say a prayer for the cure of this disease.  Also in honor of it, wear an orange ribbon on your shirt for a day.  Everytime you see it, you would be reminded to pray for all of those who are affected by this disease, including their families.

Here is a picture of my little sweetie getting ready to roll over again.  He can definitely roll places but not crawling yet.

Prayer requests:  Safety and protection for all of our military who are serving and fighting for this country.  My friend Christie and Aunt Evelyn to sell their houses.

Psalms 86 verses 10, 11, 12 & 13: For you are great, and do great miracles.  You alone are God.  Tell me where you want me to go and I will go there.  May every fiber of my being unite in reverence to your name.  With all my heart I will praise you. I will give glory to your name forever, for you love me so much!  You are constantly so kind.

Have a super day everyone!!  Today is another gift from God which I do not take for granted and He is so Good!!

Would you rather play guitar, drums or piano??
