Easter Memories

This blog hop is a treat Easter Memories.. My father was a minister and I have very good memories of several holidays.. Easter has always been a very important day for us. See- we believe fully in the miracle of the resurrection of Jesus. BUT the real fun memories are of the easter egg hunt thru the house when it was snowing outside or the year we all had matching dresses (not my Dad) LOL

My Dad started a tradition while we were fairly young of buying all of us girls, me, my sister and Mom, our very own corsage. It may have only been a small corsage from the grocery store, but it sure meant the world to me.. My Dad has passed away, but I'll always have that memory

I have been MIA (missing in action) SORRY

I must apologize for not being on top of things.. in the last 3 months I have had a couple "procedures". They have kicked my fanny.. I have Fibromyalgia and I feel like I have been in a chronic flare since the surgery. Now the shoulder is out if comission and I am down to one-handed typing.. Please be patient, I promise to be back in rare form as quickly as possible...

Prayer answered..yes, no or wait...

Wow.. this is one of my favorite things to talk about. In my life i have seen God work in incredible and sometimes mysterious ways... As a child I was raised in a parsonage...My father was a minister and he instilled in us the knowledge that God can and will answer all prayer. The kicker is it may be him saying yes, no or wait. I am not always very gracious about the waiting part, am i the only one? I figured not..Answered prayer is not always the big request, it could be something as normal as finding lost keys or a missing pet. We must always remember how he loves to answer our prayers

My Doggers and Grand-dogger..LOL Spring is in the air

I am blessed with 2 very special doggers, not daughters, but pretty darned close..LOL My Mazie is a fabulous Yellow Lab and Sophie is a catagory all her own, she is my miniature black poodle. We also have our Grand-dogger Max.. Yes HER name is Max but she is a little girl.. Her Dad (my son-in-law) named her Max after his DuraMax truck.. These girls are extra great because they show me the renewal of spring. They all love the snow, but there is something about the coming spring. It is like freeing the dogs from 101 Dalmatians... When that door opens they are off in a flash. They have been cooped up all winter and now there are chipmunks to be hunted and trails to climb around on. Now that the snow is gone they can go to the river and play. They are 3 very special creatures

I'm too tired to serve... NOT (finding my destiny through Fibromyalgia)

Serving others... A wonderful concept yet scary at the same time. I think this hop came along at a perfect time for me. I have Fibromyalgia and have found that I am not doing much service to others anymore due to feeling like crap and I am physically exhausted all the time, BUT I feel God calling me to begin a ministry for that exact purpose. I am starting a support group for other Fibro patients. Our nearest support group is nearly 1 hour away. That can be a long drive in the Michigan winters or when you hurt so bad that you just want to cry, NOT ride/drive for 1 hour. So I realize that not everyone reading this understands the ministry angle, but my beliefs are dear and precious to me. If I can do as God is calling me, help others AND get my fanny off the couch, then it is all good... Right????

By the way, I need a catchy name for this support group,any ideas??

Just a update....

All is well here in our humble abode... I am trying real hard to get some order to my confused brain, in regards to all the info I am learning about internet marketing and my ebay selling.

For a change of pace.... I have begun to start my summer garden plans... I am doing raised beds, this year. Has anyone had success with this method? Since we are on such a tight budget and "getting out of "debt", we have decided to do a good size garden and can some and use our Foodsaver to freeze a good amount, by the way, if you dont have a Foodsaver then you should get one. They are a great answer to leftovers and bulk shopping....
