Sunday Musings

Today is Sunday and I have been over my sinus infection for a week now. It is nice to feel human again. At church today some of the talks were about hardships and having faith to get through them. I was reminded that prosperity and depression go in cycles and what have we learned from history? Do we prepare as Joseph did in Egypt during the 7 years of prosperity for the 7 years of famine? We have had many years of prosperity and yet how many thought it would last forever and never put anything aside for the lean times? I am guilty of not putting enough away to last through however long this recession/depression lasts. I thought of spiritual preparations also. Do we have enough oil in our lamps to last through the spiritual onslaughts that come at us from every side? Will we try to borrow some at the last moment and find that there is none to be had, even in the marketplace? The marketplace in this time period probably has some of everything, except the precious oil that we need to light our lamps in times of present darkness in the world. I fear that it will get worse, as it will not be popular to be a Christian and have standards and values different from the world. It will be in those times that we will have to ask ourselves, am I ashamed to follow Christ and His teachings? Am I willing to share the gospel with others? Do I have the oil in my lamp full for when the Savior comes again? Just thoughts......

:o) Happy Day

Finally the sinus infection has subsided. It is nice to feel human again. It has been raining a lot the last week or so, so it has been nice to stay indoors, but it is better to feel good. LOL

Tuesday blues

Well, I have a full blown sinus infection today, complete with stuffy nose, sinus pain, ear ache, headache, and chills. So much for playing tonight. :o(

Hopefully it will pass quickly. I have to work tomorrow (and today). Well, I have seen pictures of our newest baby but haven't seen her yet. She is beautiful though. I can't wait to meet her, but I will wait until the sinus infection is gone.

Not much more to tell.

16th grandchild! Hurrah!!!

On Sunday, January 4th, Chris called us to let us know that Tabitha had just given birth to our 16th grandchild! Both Mom and Baby are healthy, well, and doing good. The baby's name is Claire Ellis and she weighed 7 lbs 8 oz and was 21 inches long. I haven't seen a picture of her yet, but I know she is adorable. After all, all my grandchildren are adorable. hehehehehe I can't wait to go up to their house and meet her!

Manda is due in March with number 17, a boy and we are looking forward to meeting him soon!

Tarena and Dan called us Sunday night and announced that they are expecting again and will be due around the end of June. That will make 18 grandchildren for us. What a wonderful surprise! Our family is growing and we love all the new additions! What a great family we have!

New Year's changes

Today I am back to work, working on creating an Internship class for the seniors at one of the high schools that I work at. I think it will be fun and I am looking forward to it, but I am a little overwhelmed at the prospects.

I also changed my blog around so that I have a separate page for my scrapbook and photoshop pages and a separate page for my doll fashions, both for sale and to show off. That way, people don't have to hunt around on this one to see the things they are interested in. I think it will work out better. I don't know how to move the information around to the different blog pages without losing all the comments, so will just leave what is on this page as is and will continue to add things to the new pages. I hope you find it easier to navigate also.
