It's almost here, Again

It's hard to believe that Christmas is almost here again. It seems like only yesterday that we were celebrating Christmas. As I've gotten older, I've noticed that times seems as if it's going faster and faster.

As you know, I'm big on children. That being the case, what are we going to do about all these toys with lead in them? I honestly feel we should boycott any products from China! We, as a nation, need to show these manufacturers that we won't stand for this. How much longer are we going to let these companies get think they can do whatever they want. We have become so complacent that of course they feel this way. We've gotten to the point that we hardly ever stand up for ourselves. We NEED to stand up for ourselves. Our jobs are going out of the US, gas prices are ridiculous, our elected politicians are more concerned with how much they can make than what's best for us as a nation. I strongly urge every citizen to let these people know that we won't allow this to happen. If we don't, it will only get worse. After all, how are we going to buy these products if all of our jobs are overseas or in Mexico?

Think about it and God bless.

I Actually Did It!!!!!!!!

I've been playing a game called Rocket Mania. The reason I've been playing so much is because I read somewhere that on the hard difficulty, there were 2 more levels to reach. Well, let me tell you from experience, there isn't. Brothers of Dragons is the highest level you can reach on any difficulty. My latest score is 4056340, and still it shows Brothers of Dragons.

I realize this may not interest you, but I'm surprised I've made it this far. This is the best score I've ever gotten during the whole game and just had to share.

Have a great weekend and God bless.

About my newest site

I told you about a new site on the web, but now I want to go into more detail about it.

It's a site I did to try and help churches bring in more visitors by having one central location to post any event that might be happening. The name of the site is Local Christian Event Calendar. I got tired of having to look all over the place to find out what is going on where at the churches in my area, as well as where various singing groups were performing. And once I get it off the ground, it will be a great source for this kind of information.

If you've never started your own site, let me tell you it can be very time consumming! Between finding other sites to link to it, calling churches and singing groups to advertise on it, it's been slow going. But I know God had a hand in this, (and still does), so it will prosper, I just have to be patient. I ask that you be patient also with this site. I'm getting word out about it and really believe that it will be a great site one day with a lot of information on local Christian events. Just keep my site in your prayers as I'll keep you in mine as you read this.

God be with you always.

Please have your eyes checked

In February of 2007, we found out that my husband had cancer in one of his eyes. It was melanoma. There were no symptoms only a blind spot in his side vision that he found when he was out back shooting BB guns with our 2 boys.

We had 2 choices, go to Philladelphia and have radiation placed in his eye and loose his sight, and the eye, in a few years or just go ahead and remove the eye. He chose to have it removed. He now has a fake eye that is very hard to tell is fake.

I'm not going to say we had an easy time going through this because we didn't. Your first response when you hear that your loved one has cancer is total fear. "What if I loose my husband?" That was the first thought that went through my mind when I heard it.

Once the eye was removed, we found out that they got all of the cancer when they removed the eye and his chances of ever getting cancer again is 1 to 2 percent each year, and it's an accumulative percentage, meaning that in 25 years, he'll have a 25 to 50 percent chance of getting cancer again. So the odds are great for him.

I thank God that he went to the doctors when he did. As I stated above, there were no warnings that it was even there and with it being in his side vision, it was very hard to see unless he was only using one eye as in the case of shooting guns with the boys.

Please, if you don't have regular eye exams, do so. You never know what might be there. We didn't.
