CAUTION! Church Construction Ahead!

We will not be able to post as normal this week. This is due, to the fact that Greg and I are involved and directing a renovation project, at Church. We are moving S.S. Classes around, transferring the Kidz Konnect Office to the other side of the building, we will be painting 2 of the Classrooms, along with the new Kidz Konnect Office, we will also be placing carpet in 2 of the classrooms, etc., etc. This task will keep us extremely busy for the rest of the week... we have a deadline of THIS Sunday, March 1st, to complete the work! We will be back to our normal posting by this time next week, the good Lord willing! (By the way, we are taking volunteers... if you are a "local" and are interested in assisting, please contact myself or the Church Office. *SMILE*) We look forward to getting back on track with our Blog next week!

Only 31 Days Before the First Day of Spring 09!

Finally, we're only about a month away from the best Season of the year... SPRING! It's been a long time a coming, but we're ready for it, that's for sure! We've had a very busy week since last Tuesday, with the Church Children's Valentine Party, a Family Valentine Party, our Valentine Dinner, etc. (Including a little Valentine shopping throughout the week, of course!) I've always loved Valentine's Day and this year it seemed we celebrated all week long, which made it even more special!
For a brief overview of our week,
We are certainly looking forward to Spring this year, I believe Aly will enjoy being outdoors again, even more than she did last year! It's so much fun to watch the world "wake up" from her looonnnngggg Winter's nap and realize the beauty that God Himself created for just us, His children!
Please help us pray for the family of a dear girlfriend of mine, who just passed away, after returning to the States as a Missionary to China. She had backslidden in recent years and turned from God, she was entirely too young to die and her death seems very unnecessary. I HAVE WONDERFUL NEWS! TWO DAYS AFTER POSTING THIS PRAYER REQUEST, I WAS INFORMED THAT SHE DID INDEED FIND PEACE WITH GOD BEFORE HER UNTIMELY DEATH! TO GOD BE ALL THE PRAISE! However, let us continue to pray for her family during these trying times. She left a husband and son behind and many other family members, as well. Thank you for your prayers, care and concern for 'another' of God's family.
Until next time...

This Is the Month of Love...

It's hard to believe, that one Christmas could change someones life forever, but that's just what happened to me. Greg and I fell in love during the Holiday Season of 2003 making this our 6th Valentine's Day together 'In-Love', 5th as husband and wife and 2nd to share with our Aly-Girl! Where has the time gone? "Love is a many-splendored thing, Love is nature's way of giving a reason to be living, Yes, true love's a many-splendored thing." (by: Frank Sinatra---a perfect way to put "LOVE" into a song, if you ask me!) God has been so good to me and given me an almost-perfect life with an ideal husband, Greg and a lifetime dream come true in little Alyson. Life really couldn't be much better...

I will always love you, Greg!
~Aly, Daddy and I both love you more than you'll ever know!
Happy Valentine's Day to my two Valentine's... XO

Winter in Indiana...

Well, there's really not much to say that hasn't already said about my feelings of WINTER IN INDIANA... as you are all aware, it is NOT my favorite season or place to be during this particular season! (It must be the Louisiana coming out in me!) However, this white stuff they call snow is quite pretty to look at, that is when it first begins to fall and turn our world into a TRUE Winter Wonderland.
I need not tell you, that the 'new' and 'fresh' has worn off as far as I'm concerned and I'm ready for a GREEN WORLD, now! I am already planning things to do with Aly when Spring arrives and trying to remember what it's like to not have to lug coats and blankets around wherever we go! What's not to love about Spring?!?!?
Well, we'll blog again next week and hopefully will have more pictures to add then, as well! "Happy Groundhog Day", ya'll...
