A very important day...

Today is my favorite sil's birthday!!!!  He is just the best!

The first time Nator walked in our home to meet Mal ...blind date from Del Rio to Mctown..I said Now "That is fine China"  and that he is in every sense of the word.

When God made Nator he was definitely thinking about my Mal.  They are a match in heaven.

I am so thankful to have a sil who loves good muchies , good grumpers and just a whole lot of good fun.  It is not every sil who will take his mother in law into his home and intertain in amazing ways...My best memory with  the Nator..Blood Red Margaritas in Phili and oh of course the morning He asked for mals hand...ask him about that sometime.

Cheers to you today!

Happy Birthday Susy

Tomorrow is my sister Susy's birthday!

Susy lives in Denver and loves it there!  I am always telling her to come back and live in Texas next to us in McTown but she says it is too  hot!  I love that she loves Denver except times like this when I wish we could celebrate big events like her birthday together.

Susy adds fun and lots of laughs to all out family gatherings.  We are also so grateful for all the ways she is so giving and caring to me and our entire family.  

I pray that tomorrow God will encourage her and remind her of what a treasure she is to all the people who love her so very much!!!!

Mal has gotten me hooked on doing acrostics for people's birthdays.  I am sure she will do one for her Ant Sissle as she calls her..but I cant resist..I just have to do one too.  Wonder if we will come up with any of the same words to describe her.

Here goes....

S weet and oh so very smart!
Sassy and a lil silly too!
Young at heart

Love love love you!!!

Something Old , Something New....

I love newness!!!  Is that a word? 

I love to shop , mail order, receive items in  the mail ..anything that is new.  It is fresh , untouched, no mars ,scratches and no  history.  It is all mine and it is... present forward!

I love this time of year!  Children are starting back to school, church life, community life and even the world of television has new beginnings.

I am excited about new beginnings in my life.  If I did not know I could start over , even with the consequences of times before, I would go bananas...

I love the truth in Gods word..His love letter to me and to you..that Nothing is impossible with God.  My Father is a Father who grants to me new beginnings daily!

God said this, I believe it and so that settles it.  

Looking to a new day, a new year beginnings.

Right Thinking...

Lyn Latham is Mallory's Mil and Steve's sweet sweet mom.  This morning she called from where she is staying with her two parents who are both very ill.  Her father with cancer, just diagnosed this week and her mother with lung disease.  It is not good ( :...
Steve, Mals hubby and Lyn's son is in Japan and will be flying home to fuel fighter jets over the ocean this week.  He is now a captain and the big man in charge...
Not long ago ,Cap. Steve returned from UIA...Dubai and reported of the thunderstorms he succesfully flew through and the danger that surrounded him on his way home.  

As Lyn and I are visiting and I am wanting to minister to her about all these things she is dealing with, as a daughter and mom, she says to me ," Remember Jesus and HIs disciples in the storm...He was with them and sovereign over all..He got them through...Jesus will get us all through a day at a time."

That is Right Thinking that leads  to Right living!

Thank you Lyn for your wise words to me this morning.

Mal you are blessed with a wonderful mil...

Praying to have right thinking today!
