SHE'S 25!!!

I gave up Facebook for a little while, but I did go to say happy birthday to my daughter, Danielle. Should have done the same here. Well, I at least can put a quick something up. She has been such a fun and funny daughter...not without the trials, but I love her to death. She has grown up to be a beautiful young lady and has been on her own for a few years now. I still worry about her, but she seems to be doing fine. She figures things out. She's busy with school and work. And she's getting ready to graduate from the University of Oregon in June. Wow! She turned 25 yesterday and I hope she had a great day. I love you so much, Danielle-e.   (You can find more pictures/story in my February 2009 blogs - Danielle)

God Is Like....

God is like Coca-Cola
     He's the real thing.
God is like General Electric
     He lights your path.
God is like Bayer Aspirin
     He works wonders.
God is like Hallmark Cards
     He cared enough to send the very best.
God is like Tide
     He gets out stains that others leave behind.
God is like VO-5 Hair Spray
     He holds through all kinds of weather.
God is like Dial Soap
     Aren't you glad you know Him?
     Don't you wish everyone did?
God is like Sears
     He has everything.
God is like Alka Seltzer
     Oh, what a relief He is!
God is like Scotch Tape
     You can't see Him but you know He's there!
God is like American Express Card
     Don't leave home without Him!

I feel like He's my shopping list. God is so much more than all these descriptions, but after reading this again, when I shop, I just may remember these things and make up my own, too. It's a good thing He's always there for me, and not in a bottle or a can or store. He's everywhere I go and He goes ahead of me. What a comfort!

Going through computer files

I decided to go through files and clean them out since there are things in there I don't need and never look at anymore. I found some fun things I copied way back when I first started "chatting" with other Christians I met online. They shared some fun stuff. So, here you go (I'll share them off and on when I can't think of anything else to blog). (The pic = Pray...Go. I think some people might remember this.)


I said a prayer for you today
     and know God must have heard;
I felt the answer in my heart
     though He spoke not a word.

I didn't ask for wealth and fame
    (though I knew you didn't mind),
I asked of priceless treasures rare,
     of a more lasting kind.

I prayed that He'd be near to you
     at the start of each new day.
To grant you health and blessing fair,
     and friends to show the way.

I asked for happiness in all things,
     great and small,
but that you'd know His loving care
     I prayed for this most of all.
