creatively speaking!!

Paul and his buddies love FRUIT LOOPS. We play the 'guess what last color loop I have!" in my bowl!! So, I saw this idea in Simply Handmade APR/MAY edition and loved it ... loved it soooo soooo much that I had to make one quickly. Paul scooped it immediately!! And I "won" a goodies box ~ an entire box FULL OF WONDERFUL creatively speaking things ... from Lori Renn's blog. YOU MUST CHECK IT OUT ~~~> She is a published author, 'wicked' creative and a great cook too. YOU MUST CHECK IT OUT!! and let me know what you decide. Make sure you say hello to Lori and tell her I sent you! So, I've only had minutes to putts and play creatively speaking ... and came up with a few simple pages. Lori has often told me "without CHANGE there would be no butterflies." This has spoken volumes to me!! have a great week. love, m

He is Risen!!!

Resurrection Sunday! Amen and Amen .... church rocked TODAY! At Crossroads Community Church in Nampa IDAHO, we had cardboard testimonies (powerful) of BC (life before and/or without Christ) and AD (life with Christ) .... POWERFUL!!! All of my family attended church together (that's a mother's happy dance!!) .. and then we went out to eat. Just being together ..... Indeed He has Risen ... and that same resurrection power that God used to raise Jesus is ours too ... NOW, that's a happy dance for everyone. love, m

That's My King! ....

That's My King!
To download this video go to The late S.M. Lockridge once presented an incredible message, describing our God and who He is. Though God can't be described with just words, this is as close as you can get this side of Heaven. ... this is so WORTH YOUR TIME. I have always loved this !!! and what a perfect day to remember your King of Kings!! have a Blessed Easter ... and may you see glimpses of Him all weekend long. xoxox, m

Delta Mu Delta ... induction ceremony

Friday, April 3 ... induction into the Delta Mu Delta society. This is a huge honor ... Doug has earned and worked so very hard to get this! The ceremoney was wonderfully done, it was held at NNU (Northwest Nazarene University, Nampa ID) and Dr. Wm. Russell presented the program and Ron Price was the speaker. From the last photo, you can see that not many earn this award. Excellent induction ceremony. And look how proud Doug is ... actually, I am so very very very proud of him and all his hard work for his MBA degree. Can you believe it, he graduates May 10!!
