Leak

Well, God came through, and our friend came.  He was able to hop onto (David’s words) the roof, and just fix everything.  Apparently, a squirrel decided he liked our shingles so much that he ate through the part of the roof’s ridge line.  We will wait out the repair, and hopefully the rains will prove… Continue reading Leak

Sunday Thought

Struggling today with so many things. “Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my concerns.  See if there is any offensive (idolatrous) way in me; lead me in the everlasting way.” – Psalm 139:23-24  This was a verse in my bible study a couple of weeks ago.  I just grazed over… Continue reading Sunday Thought

But, not anymore. On the above information picture it states… Continue reading Watermelon

Non-Scale Victory 

Carmen and traveled to Walt Disney World over the Fourth of July holiday. In the past, I would have had to rent a scooter just to get around.  I wouldn’t be able to ride any rides (or if I did my bones would not like me).

Wine

I am one cheap date. Really.  I like most drinks/cocktails now.  I haven’t always been able to drink.  I think part of my surgery took the part of my stomach that couldn’t handle alcohol.  I know it sounds crazy, but my friends can attest that I would not be able to drink a full glass… Continue reading Wine
