The passing of a Loved One...

Well, I just found out this weekend that my Uncle Eldon (he is technically my cousin, but him and his wife have been more of an aunt/uncle to me) has not been given long to live. Him and his wife JoAnn are some of the sweetest people you will ever meet. We got a call this morning on the way to church that the Dr had only given him a few minutes to 1 hour to live. That was 6 hours ago and he is still hanging on. He has been opening his eyes some but you can tell he isn't really "here".

As of right now, I am planning on leaving for Louisiana Tuesday night (for Thanksgiving), unless something changes with my uncles status, there is a possibility that I will be leaving sooner. I will keep you posted.

8:30pm Well, my Dad just got a phone call that Uncle Eldon passed away this evening around 6:00-6:30. Please say a prayer for his wife and immediate family that God would comfort them. It's hard to loose anyone you love but especially around the holidays.

So last night we went to a party at the Harveys, for a little bit. Then Jonathon and I decided to go bowling. We got stuck by a whole bunch of "young" kids that were really obnoxious. So we moved down the bowling lane and were able to at least have room to move. So we are just bowling, having fun, and not paying attention to much of anything. For some reason last night we were having trouble finding the right size for the bowling balls. And we couldn't really find one that we liked. I think I went through every size that they had. lol Finally towards the end of our 4th game, I decided to get a lighter one. So, I go up to roll the ball down the lane and I swing my hand back to throw it and the ball FLEW out of my hand, backwards and bounced on the floor! LOL It was SO FUNNY!!! These random people behind us busted out laughing! LOL Oh gotta love the fun times! I think that was the best and most memorable moment of the night! :)

Happy Birthday to Trish!!

Happy Birthday Trish!!! Wow, where do I start? We go way back! When I first started going to TLC, I came from a church that had NO young people, and being 14 years old, I needed that in my life. Tim and Trish were my youth leaders growing up. I've always been close to them, and through the years we have developed a great friendship. She has always been there for me and I don't know what I would do without her. I am so thankful that God has placed Trish (and Tim) in my life. We share a lot of memories, a lot of tears, a lot of happiness, a lot of heart to heart talks, a lot of hugs, a lot of encouragement and advice, and the list could go on and on. Trish, I love you so much and thank God for you everyday! Happy Birthday!!!

Where does the time go?

I can't believe it is already near the middle of November. I was looking at the calendar today at work and realized that Thanksgiving is only 2 weeks away!!! I can't believe it! However, I am VERY excited about Thanksgiving!!!! We are making our annual trip to Louisiana, for Thanksgiving, at my Granddaddy's house. Although it will be much different this year with Mammaw not being with us, but it will still be good to be with my family. I am also very excited because one of my best friends and her husband (Lori and Jessy) are coming to see me!!! So I am super stoked about that!!!
Christmas is also just around the corner. Our Christmas Radio stations are now in full force, the weather has turned cold and raining with talks of snow in the forecast, the traffic has gotten heavier with shoppers in full swing for the Christmas season. It won't be long and we will be welcoming in another year!

Big Mommy

Happy Birthday Big Mommy! Today is a very special day of rememberance for me and my family. Our dear and precious Big Mommy would have been 90 years old today if she were still alive. Earlier this year, she went to be with Big Daddy and Jesus. We miss her terribly. But today we can remember all the good things and be thankful for the heritage her and Big Daddy gave us. WE love you, Big Mom!

Caedyn's Birthday

Caedyn's birthday was on Friday and he turned 3 years old! We celebrated on Saturday! It was Thomas the Train theme...too cute. He got lots of Thomas the Train stuff and he had a blast!! Happy Birthday, Caedyn!!

My view on the Election '08

Well first of all, this was my first year to vote (ever). And yes, I did vote for McCain/Palin. On the day of Election I thought all the hype was finally going to be over. I am so tired of hearing and seeing and feeling all the friction between the two candidates. But I am wrong. It only seems like it is getting worse. There have been so many racial comments flying around from people’s mouths. And although I did NOT vote for Obama, it doesn’t mean that we are racial. Speaking of, Why has this turned into a racial thing? It’s NOT about the color of his skin!!!! I have heard so many people that automatically think you are racial because you did not vote for Obama. WHY?!?! This is not the issue people!!! The issue is this…
America voted in a President with NO morals.
America voted in a President who does NOT like AMERICA.
America voted in a President who does NOT stand on what this country was founded on.
America voted in a President who will NOT give Oath to Office on the BIBLE.
America voted in a President who will NOT even Salute our American FLAG!
What is this country coming to? It’s not about the color of one’s skin. It’s about what they believe in!!! I am so sick of hearing people just assuming you are prejudice. Come on people!! Think about it!! Think about where this Country is headed! We have got to PRAY for this Country like never before!! We need to pray that the morals this country was founded on will be allowed back.

All I can say is...

Thank You Jesus!!! I am LOVING having gas so cheap these days!!!

Update 11-09-08 Gas is now $1.65!!! Woohoo!!!! I hope and pray it keeps coming on down!!!! :)

I Voted...Did You?!

SO...I voted today for the FIRST time!!! Yes, I am almost 28 and just now voting. LOL It was quite the experience! Of course, I voted for McCain/Palin!! Besides that I didn't even know anything else about the ballot, how sad is that? lol I had no idea who the other state officials were much less any of the judges. LOL And yeah, I admit that...I'm not much into politics and couldn't tell you much about it. But, I voted....does that count?! Hey, I got that nice little round, red/white/blue sticker that says, "I voted today, did you?" I mean come on...whats better than that? LOL

One Foggy Night

It has been really foggy out this weekend. Saturday night on the way home, it was SOO foggy you couldn't even see hardly 5 feet in front of you. But thank God I made it home safe!

Friday Night Boredom

So, Friday night Jon and I were hanging out and we were bored, so we decided to go bowling lol. We ended up having fun and just hanging out, then went to get something to eat afterwards...

Church Hayride 08

Trunk or Treat '08

We had Trunk or Treat at church this week for the kids. They were so cute and many of them had alot of cute outfits. We even had McCain/Palin there! LOL It was awesome! Here are a few pics...

Mantle Conference '08

TLC (The Life Church) just had our annual Mantle Conference with Bro. Stoneking! It was awesome!!! God is just doing so many great things!! I'm sure there was more, but I know of one healing that took place. There was a guy there that had never been able to see out of his left eye. God healed him!! He started naming colors and stuff that he was seeing for the first time!!! Although it wasn't completely clear, we know that the healing process is still taking place! But God is so awesome!!!
I didn't take very many pictures at Mantle this year. I didn't get any of the actual services, and we hung out alot with friends after church every night. I think I was too tired to pull the camera out. lol But here are the few that I did take.
