Church Signs

Almost anywhere you go, you will probably pass a church sign. Most churches have them set up in front to advertise their church and give church information. The sayings on the signs are as varied as the churches that post them. Sometimes they make you laugh, and sometimes they make you think.

Palo Cedro Community Church has the greatest sayings on their church sign. They change it every week, so I look forward to Monday mornings when I take Lyle to school. When I read this week's, I just said, "WOW!!"

We certainly have an unknown future right now! This is a scary time here in our country and around the world. While looking at an unknown and uncertain future, our emotional responses are usually fear and doubt. But, God is in control! God is good (all the time)! He is all-knowing! He's been faithful in the past, and He will always be faithful! AMEN??

Yummy in my Tummy

Yesterday, while shopping at Walmart, I got a "something salty" attack. So, I bought these:

Sea Salt and Cracked Pepper Kettle Cooked Chips are YUMMY!!! BUY SOME SOON!!! Let me share a little advice with you (yes, I consider myself an expert since I ate the whole package in two days).

Eat them and store them in private. That way you don't have to share them with anyone. :0)

If you feel guilty eating the whole bag, just stare at this part of the package:

Do not, I repeat DO NOT read the Nutrition Information on the back of the package. It will lead to serious depression, guilty feelings, and regret. We don't want that.

Run, don't walk, to Walmart and buy yourself some of these!! You won't be sorry!!

A Little Taste of Heaven

Mr. Kenneth L. Trostle
October 18, 1918 - December 30, 2009

This last week, I experienced a little taste of what Heaven will be like. As I looked around at the graveside service for Mr. Trostle on Friday, I was amazed at the strange “mix” of people there. In losing someone, hard feelings and differences were set aside, and people came together for just one day to share grief and say good-bye.

As Christians, we often spend our time attacking one another. It’s time to set aside our differences to focus on the part of Christianity that matters – sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It’s time to put aside those matters that divide us and come together as one. As someone once said, “Let’s put aside our differences to make a difference”!

We are all children of God. Someday in Heaven, we will stand together, regardless of our differences, and worship our Father and Lord Jesus Christ. I long for that day!

Lots of rides on Bart (my brother's main source of transportation):

Shopping and fun in Chinatown:

Eating, eating, and more eating out...Chinese food, Italian food, Hawaiian food, Indian food, donuts, and of course dinner at the famous Mel's Drive-In in the city:

Touring the Ferry Building to see the beautiful Christmas decorations:

Ice Skating for the first time ever (lots of bruises, blisters, but having a blast):

Going to the movies:

Shopping and checking out the beautiful Christmas decorations at Union Square:

They also watched movies at home and visited my brother's work to help him "undecorate" from Christmas!

Thank you to my brother for showing the kids a wonderful time. A special thank you for remembering to take lots and lots of pictures for me!! I love you bunches, Wesley!!!
