A year of changes….

on Jan 5th 2015

It’s hard to believe it’s the start of 2015. I heard somewhere recently that “the year 2030 is as near to us as the year 2000″. Wow, food for thought, huh? Remember all that crazy Y2K stuff that ran rampant at the end of 1999? I dreamed when I was a girl that I would […]

I hope to see Jesus soon

With all the summer trips and general busyness of life, it wasn’t until this past weekend before we could get it scheduled. I am so proud of her […]
