Even when reading is impossible, the
presence of books acquired produces such an ecstasy that the buying of more
books than one can read is nothing less than the soul reaching towards infinity…
we cherish books even if unread, their mere presence exudes comfort, their ready
access, reassurance. –A. E. Newton (1863-1940).
I love this quote because it is exactly how I feel about books!!! I buy so many books that I think I am a book addict!!! Seriously!!! You know how most children will sleep with stuffed animals when they are little? I always slept with books!!! A good book can get my heart racing faster than a car racing in Nascar!!! I Love Them!! When I was in beauty school I always got in trouble for reading instead of cutting hair( maybe I should have been a librarian? LOL). But still out of all the books that I have read the greatest and the one which has brought me the most comfort is my Bible. No other book can answer my secret sorrows and joys like the Bible!!! :) Well just a little thought about books!!!!

- Ok, Ok I know its been almost a month since I last wrote anything, but we have been busy. We went to Dollywood for 2 days!!! Fun Fun Fun!!!! We met my sister Bonnie, David, and their kids, and my mom and dad. That was fun!!! I wish you could have seen Bonnie on some of the rides. The very first ride we went on together was a water ride. We were on this giant raft and it was so funny!!! Bonnie kept getting wet and yelling Oh Lordy, Oh Lordy!! I was laughing so hard I about wet my pants. Then the next day we went on a roller coaster and a ride called the mystery mine. Once again Bonnie had me dying laughing. Ok you had to see this mystery mine ride, it is like you were going straight through the roof. Bonnie, me, Jessi, and Jacob were on the very first car!!!! It was wild!!! One thing I can tell you about this experience is that I AM NOT AS YOUNG AS I ONCE WAS!!!! By that evening every bone in my body was screaming in pain!!! Earlier my dad asked me if I felt 40 yet!!! By that evening I told him the answer was YES!!!! You know this just gets me to thinking how truly fast time flies!!!! It seems like yesterday I was riding rides with Bonnie, and my friend Angie and we could ride anything without getting sick, in pain, and dizzy. But now I feel a hundred!!! We must remember to be thankful for each day we are given it truly is a blessing from God!!!! Oh yeah by that evening Bonnie and I were in the hot tub the rest of the night!!! All I can say is THANK GOD the motel had a hot tub!!!! I would post some pictures but my husband lost my camera cord( long story to long to post!!!) Well I better go Jessi is dying to write about her experiences on her blog!!!! Catch you all later!!!!

Spring Has Sprung!!!! I took some pictures of some of the creatures (feathered and slimy) that have showed up at our house. The above picture is a baby bird. We've been watching the eggs for quite awhile and they have finally hatched.
This is a picture of a toad I found out in our building. Samantha and Wesley have been waiting all winter for a toad. His name is Big Bubba. He is HUGE!!!! They have been feeding him caterpillars!!!

A Prayer.......Dear Lord, I pray
for Wisdom to understand my man;Love to forgive him;And Patience for his
moods;Because Lord, if I pray for Strength,I'll beat him to death, because I
don't know how to crochet .I love this quote my sister sent me. Isn't great? I am sure everybody has felt this way at least once. I love my husband so much but some days I know I have to pray for the wisdom to keep quiet because I LOVE TO ARGUE!!!! There are days he'll make a decision and I just can't see the sense in it. But truth be told I am an impulsive person and the first thing I want to do is the complete opposite of what he wants me to do. But I also know that the Lord has asked us to be submissive. I really had to study this word submissive because at first I thought it meant being a doormat. But that is not true it means to give in when you simply do not want to. We should do it because we love and respect our husbands for all the hard work they do, and all the love they show us. I know there have been times that he has given in to me when he did'nt want to. My sister is probably laughing as she reads this because she KNOWS I have a hard time with being submissive and I really feel like the above quote. So for whoever is reading this pray for me that I will learn to have patience, wisdom, and love!!!!

This is Wesley!!! He is truly his father and mother's child. I say this because he is the one who loves to stay home with his dad and mom when the others go and spend the night with their grandparents. He will not go. Wesley is my little scientist. He loves to read about anything that has to do with the human body. We went and bought him a microscope to look at different things . He loves it!! Wesley is also my Game nut!! He is like his cousin Micah. Anything that has to do with Gameboy, Playstation, or Computers he loves it. Wesley loves his cousin Brendan he calls him his best friend and tries to email him all the time. Wesley was my little surprise that the Lord sent I was not wanting another child quite yet. But the Lord thought different. And boy am I glad he did!!! Wesley is truly my heart's child.
