I found these jokes. I think they are funny.

Don't these make you think?

1. Only in America……can a pizza get to your house faster than an ambulance.

2. Only in America……do drugstores make the sick walk all the way to the back of the store to get their prescriptions while healthy people can buy cigarettes at the front.

3. Only in America……do people order double cheese burgers, large fries, and a diet coke.

4. Only in America……do banks leave both doors open and then chain the pens to the counters.

5. Only in America……do we leave cars worth thousands of dollars in the driveway and put our useless junk in the garage.

6. Only in America……do we use answering machines to screen calls and then have call waiting so we won’t miss a call from someone we didn’t want to talk to in the first place.

7. Only in America……do we buy hot dogs in packages of ten and buns in packages of eight.

8. Only in America… we use the word ‘politics’ to describe the process so well: ‘Poli’ in Latin meaning ‘many’ and ‘tics’ meaning ‘bloodsucking creatures’.

9. Only in America……do they have drive-up ATM machines with Braille lettering.

A few good childhood memories

A reason I still have a love for Disney (even though it is not as wholesome as it used to be) was because i have such a fond memory of the "old" Disney shows, shorts, and movies.

Here are a few of my all time favorite Disney shorts. I wonder if you remember them!

WARNING.Do not buy from that store i recommended.

I recommended Polka dot, Inc. but i believe the store to be a scam because i found an IDENTICAL store under the name I don't want anyone scammed.

Prayer Request- uh nevermind.

I know this seems small, but it's very important to me. I can't find my travel Bible anywhere. It's the size of my hand, and I use it so i don't have to carry a bigger purse for my bigger Bible. It has to be in my house because i wrote my phone number inside the Bible and no one called. Nevermind, as I was writing that, God told me to get up and go through EVERY one of my purses (which is more than 10- I love purses).I've been looking for over a week and couldn't find it. And lo and behold- BAM!
It's right there. Isn't God great? lol. I just thought I'd share that with you. lol.

Happy Valentines's Day (Belated)



Being that i was working on Valentine's Day, it didn't occur to me to blog about it. I totally forgot about the computer. My children and hubby and i had a great valentines day full of arts and crafts for valentines day, and lots to clean up. I may post pictures later but right now, I'm too lazy to upload to the pc. lol.




Who says modest has to be boring?

I just found this great site called Polka Dot,Inc, which has a variety of ethnic style skirts that are just lovely! I'm a huge sucker for prints, colors and textures, and this site has all of that and more!

I'm sure a lot of people think that modesty has to be just plain colors and stick straight, with no room for individuality. That is absolute hogwash. God gave us creativity and imagination for a reason. And as long as we retain our respect for God and ourselves, modesty fashion can go a long way!

I honestly think that it is the same store different name. WHY would a store need the same EXACT items, same layout, etc. I think both stores are run by the same person. I don't want to be responsible for any bad purchases.

This is one of my favorite examples of how beautiful is the Lord's creation.

Yeah, like evolution could ever create something so perfect!

Hello there!

I feel like I have just opened a loved book that i haven't read in a while. Returning to blogging after being too tired from work is so familiar. I've been going to bed at a decent hour (8pm!) because I work days now and I'm a bit tired. But i love my new job (as opposed to my old job). But I still yearn to be the stay at home mom of my dreams like i used to be. That really can't happen now for a while. We were thinking about having another baby, but that too has to be put on hold. This new job needs long term commitment for the financial benefits to kick in, and I can't help thinking that right now i need a good nest egg the way things are going with our economy. I think God provided me this job so that if the worst does happen, we'd be financially prepared.
My dream of returning to being a stay at home mom will eventually be fulfilled. God does not give you dreams to ignore them. The people of Israel did not dream of the promised land just to forget about it because the timing was wrong. When God's timing came in to play, He provided Moses to lead them. And He will provide me with the perfect timing to be financially comfortable enough to leave my job either temporarily or permanently and to have more children. And when it is God's will for me to have more children, I am know no one or nothing can stop Him! lol!

I love thinking about how powerful our God is. He can command us all with the strength of thunder, but whispers to us on a breeze.
Our God is an awesome God!

Have you noticed?

The word verification on people's blogs have started to make sense? They used to be just a jumble of letters and now they are resembling and some are actual words.
Just a thought.

God provides and don't judge people

I got the letter from this new church that I'm attending giving me permission to wear a skirt at work. Again, I do not tell you that you are going to hell if you wear pants, it is not my place. But in return i expect for you to accept my decision to not wear pants as my answer to God's call for modesty. My old church did not do that. I got scolded. I was told i was turning legalistic, that skirts were old-fashioned, etc. etc. I am glad that this new church i had found believed the same as me. Don't get me wrong, that is not the reason i left my old church, we were in search of a new church for a while. Our spirits were not at peace there anymore, and the Lord told us to move on. I've watched our current church's congregation leave for over a few months before i got the courage to introduce myself and start going to services. My husband and children enjoy it too. Although it's a much smaller congregation, we feel at ease here and we thank God for providing us with a new church home.

Anyway, my whole point is, do not judge your brothers and sisters in Christ. The Bible says to judge those in the church, but there is a difference between judging for righteousness and judging those who make yourself feel convicted just to make yourself feel better.
