What is family?

As I thought about family this past Easter I was reminded that family is not just the one we are born into. It is the journey of the people the Lord brings into our lives. Its those special people who treat you like they are blood relatives (and sometimes better) and you feel the same about them. Its about the relationships we develop with … Read More What is family?

It smells like fall finally. 🙂 On my way home tonight I had my windows down and I smelled the leave and all the scents of fall. It was so nice after a long day.

Thought…

If a cat could be deep in thought I think this is what it would look like… This is my friends cat (the cat of those precious kids you have seen in my posts). I just like the way the cat is looking out the window at the world. I wonder what he is thinking? A friend loves at all time. – Proverbs 17:17
