  1. Ambergris, the one in the striped shirt with his arm around his dad's shoulders and his little wife in the orange next to him. He's not my oldest, second to the oldest. 😊 My oldest is engaged. He's in the cabby hat.
  2. Hi Jeepers! ❤️ MtRider, second daughter is next to me almost hidden by youngest son. J is not in the military yet but that still may be a possibility in the future.
  3. Hi Ann! I'm so glad to 'see' you.
  4. Hello Hello! Cute cute grandson.
  5. This morning checking my emails I saw a notice from MrsS at a moment when I could come and check in and say hello. I'm officially passing out hugs to old friends and saying hello to new ones. Life is busy and seems to accelerate as the kids get older. They've grown up so much. Two oldest are engaged and married. The youngest is 12!! I'm enjoying my writing and blogging and now freelance article writer which gives me the opportunity to promote adoption and that is dear to my heart. How is everyone? How does this fabulous Friday morning find you? It finds me a bit tired after a ver
  6. Glad to see this thread resurface. My family is still an #xlfamily and five of them have now outgrown me. They are 9-19 now and life nor appetites are slowing down. Rice, pasta, potatoes and biscuits/bread still a regular part of our life.
  7. Big thank you for Madison knocking on my twitter door. Has anyone else had a crazy busy summer? Oh my!!! I've been meaning to check and put it off until I had time. Well, there is no time it seems so I just stopped and did it anyway. I am so glad this is happening again. I hope we can make it as it is always a pleasure to see my dear friends and Darlene is so very gracious to open her home up to us! I will have to do some schedule finagling and see what we can do. Much love!
  8. Throughout December I've been focusing on PEACE scriptures so that during what can be a stressful season I would be able to Hold my #peace & Avoid the #peacethieves Too many times we are expected to compromise the peace of our hearts and homes to satiate the peace-thieves (aka. hope-grabbers, joy-stealers). Click the link below for the full article. Praying that peace reigns, perfect peace, that only comes from the Lord. https://stephanierodda.wordpress.com/
  9. That's my first thought too - surely satire. Hopefully.
  10. Twilight, I am praying for you today for a reprieve from the siege. Much love.
  11. I can see you've put a lot of thought and time into your post, sharing your opinions. I'm hard-pressed for time and can't reply fully. But, a few things stood out. It is a common reference to the Christian person to say 'our blessed hope' (another way of saying great hope, I think) and that is usually said when discussing eternal life. That hope that this is not all there is, especially when facing death. That is tied very closely with the resurrection of Jesus of course. I don't think you could separate them even if you wanted to. So, with that understanding, I agree with what I underst
  12. God is always in the details isn't He Andrea? Thankful for His faithfulness.
  13. Speak to that mountain Ann! Hazelstone you're welcome! Have a blessed day!
  14. Adding my prayers. I just posted a reply to your question about prepping and Diabetes. Depression can be a result of uncontrolled blood sugar as well as the overwhelming aspect of having to deal with a new and alarming diagnosis. Apply one new step a day, one choice a day, to get that sugar under control. It will affect every partofyour well being.
  15. Diabetics can eat the same healthy foods that you are probably already including in your preps. The key is portion control and also food combinations. There are also some helpful herbal remedies like Alpha Lipoic Acid that helps with neuropathy thT is associated with diabetes. Also cinnamon is effective on blood sugar. Think choices. Any time you can include fiber and protein in your meal that includes healthy complex carbs, it will slow the dump of carbohydrates into your system which will help control spikes in blood sugars. So, instead of a plate of pasta, a serving of pasta with pro
  16. I've determined myself this morning to make some good choices that require getting up and doing something - moving forward.
  17. UNDER SIEGE If you watch any movies involving epic battles and especially if there is a stronghold or a castle involved, you have likely seen what a siege looks like. The word siege originates from the Latin and means simply 'to sit'. There are a number of recorded Biblical Battles that involve a city under siege. One of those is found in 2Kings 6:24- 7:20. Samaria is under siege and the results are gruesome and horrifying. So, exactly what is a siege? Well, a siege is a basic military strategy that goes something like this. When a land was being invaded, you couldn't occupy every
  18. I'm just seeing this now and adding my prayers for comfort and peace.
