Beautiful Day!!

Oh wow!!! It is such an absolutely beautiful day today and it was yesterday and the day before and the day before! I am getting spoiled to these lovely days. The temperature is perfect and the sun is shinning! It feels like Fall is approaching and it makes me think of the smells of Fall and of changing leaves and Harvest Homecoming!!! Life is good.

The Prayer Hand-What a story!

Yes, oh yes, I found it! But first the story...
So, Ryan and I were at Central Christian one morning for church. During the children's message they were talking about praying and how to remember for whom to pray. The girl doing the message suggested this method to the children:


You can use your hand as a reminder to pray for others. Hold your hand with your thumb pointing toward you. The thumb reminds us to pray for those closest to us -- family, friends, neighbors. The index finger (pointer) reminds us of those who have pointed us the right way -- teachers and spiritual leaders. The middle finger is the tallest and brings to mind our President and other leaders of our country. The next finger is called the weak finger and we can pray for the weak, sick, the poor and those who need help. We finish with the little finger, praying for ourselves and our own needs.

And afterwards Ryan leans over to me and asks, "Did she just say the President gets the middle finger??!!" I just chuckled.

Therefore, remembering what I learned that day in church, I am more than happy to give the Commander in Chief the one finger salute! HA!


I DO update my blog. See, here's an update post right now.

Where in the World is Chad Sloan?

Ok, so Chad's name doesn't work as well as Carmen Sandiego, but hey, he's just as much the world traveler. Check out this article from Juilliard online about Chad's Germany trip. How cool!

Blast from the Past

Ahh, the sweet sight of memories from high school. The legendary Bob Youngblood .

Happy Birthday to You!

Happy birthday Ryan! Hope you have a lovely day and don't feel a quarter of a century old (ya know, that's not very old, but when it is put in those terms it sounds old). I love you!

Picture of the Month-September

Happy September! Let's celebrate this month with a picture of a double-yolked egg. Yeah, some of you may say that that is merely two different eggs, but no! It was a double-yolked egg. Yes, a double-yolked egg that I cracked while making a cake. So what would that mean? Was it two chickies? Maybe twin chickies? The world may never know.
