I love the last one and the fifth. The fifth is so me. I always get into things that I regret later....

Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving a comment on my blog. Not only did your comment make my day, but it led the way to your own wonderful blog! I love meeting other women of faith and sharing a time of adoration of our Beloved.

You are one lady I wish I could sit down and talk with personally. (Did you see the part on my profile about genealogy?) I have deep German roots but a decidedly American vocabulary. :)

Your husband was snoring while you read my blog? Mine was rolling his eyes while I wrote it! No, "Pastor Dad" is a good sport and a real encouragement. Through our 30 years together we've had our share of mountaintop and valley experiences but we've learned that we always have the Lord and each other to help us through. We've also learned that the Lord is less prone to emotional outbursts than the other two in our little triangle but that's probably another story!
