Thought I would first share with you a new author and one of her books I just read.
Denise Hildreth. A good Southern book with humor and good morals. It made me laugh and it made me cry. It has some very profound statements in it. I cant wait to read some more of her books!

There is a bluebird sky here today! Not too cold and no wind yet. I think I'm going to venture out and paint a few tree trunks. Gotta protect those young trees from the bugs you know!

Oh my friend Jen has a really nice post today....it's worth reading.

I know you all are familiar with the Caylee Anthony missing/murder story.

Last night on Nancy Grace, she aired the recorded visit of George & Cindy Anthony with their daughter Casey, a visit at the jail. This story hits a nerve with me. I think it is because of us having Little Package in our lives.

Danny & I have watched this story together & we both get very emotional about it. Folks, you never know what is gonna happen in your life! This could be one of us going through this.

These grandparents are mourning the loss of their granddaughter & dealing with the fact that their own child may have murdered their grand baby! Things like this happens all the time. Your kids screw up...even murder!

What I am trying to say is......my heart is broken for the Anthony's. You can see they are descent folks and are completely broken! I am broken for them.

I woke up this morning with them on my mind. Every time I hear anything about this story I find myself praying for them but since last night...after watching them visit their daughter....I just feel more of a burden to pray for them.

Will yall do the same, when ever you think of it, if you see something on TV about them, will you pray for those folks. I feel there is nothing more anyone else could do that would help them more than to lift them up to God.

Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weakness. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but THE SPIRIT HIMSELF MAKES INTERCESSION FOR US WITH GROANINGS WHICH CAN NOT BE UTTERED. Romans 8:26

SIGNS OF LOVE............

I've had a good week! Little Package has been here & we have had a great time! The weather(which is sooo crazy here) has been nice enough to go outside & enjoy. Package & I went to the park & had a picnic. I think Spring Fever has attacked because there were piles of women & children at the park!

Valentine's Day is this weekend and my oldest son's birthday. I am making him some cookies. I am making Danny & I a strawberry cake. Nothing fancy...just a box recipe (but we love it!). Package gets a little box of candy & a small Teddy Bear.

Have any of you looked at the Victoria Magazine? I really like it and have decided to subscribe to it.
