Link to video on youtube of Don Moen’s song that has been in my head for 2 days. It is time to publish it. This sums up what I am feeling for my precious granddaughter and my daughter. I love you both much.

GOD WILL MAKE A WAY WHEN THERE SEEMS TO BE NO WAY

HE WORKS IN WAYS WE CANNOT SEE; HE WILL MAKE A WAY FOR YOU

HE WILL BE YOUR GUIDE; HOLD YOU CLOSELY TO HIS SIDE

WITH LOVE AND STRENGHT FOR EACH NEW DAY HE WILL MAKE A WAY

BY A ROADWAY IN THE WILDERNESS HE’LL LEAD YOU

AND RIVERS IN THE DESERT WILL YOU SEE

HEAVEN AND EARTH WILL FADE

BUT HIS WORD WILL STILL REMAIN

HE WILL DO SOMETHING NEW TODAY!!!

Todaly is a special day, it is our anniversary. We have been married 7 great years. Wow that’s not a long time compared to others, but to us everyday is special in this relationship. We have both been there before, and know bad it can be. Both of us want better this time and we work at it. Arguing is not going to happen much, granted it has happened, but we find a way to come together and hash it out. I have to admit that I’m the one that doesn’t get “over” thing quickly! Hubby can and is able to come to me and say “I’m sorry or hey lets talk this out. He doesn’t want the fussing and arguing anymore than I do, so we avoid it at much as possible!!!!

April 19, 2001 the night before our wedding, we had a rehearsal at the church. We had sooo much fun, we laughed the whole time with our friends. It was a great way to chase away the jitters; because boy I really had them!!! LOL!! Hubby had the idea of coming to meet me half way down the aisle and escorting me up to the altar. This way it would be different than the usual wedding march. I loved it!

 Finally, the day came, and it was a beautiful 70 degree sunny God blessed day!  Everything was great. Thanks to our best friends> Linda and Blaine we became one. We have a marriage prayer that we keep.

Lord, help us to remember when we first met and the strong love that grew between us.

To work that love into practical things so nothing can divide us.

We ask for words both kind and loving and hearts always ready to ask forgiveness as

well as forgive. Dear Lord we put our marriage into your hands.

GOOD BYE OLE FRIEND

TODAY IS KIND OF A SAD DAY AROUND HERE, BUT A HAPPY ONE TOO. HUBBY HAS DECIDED TO SELL “ALLIE”. SHE HAS BEEN A GREAT GIRL, ALWAYS PERFORMING ON CUE, LOOKING SHARP AND NEAT AS A PIN WHEN ON “SHOW”. A GREAT GIRL. SHE HELD HER HEAD UP HIGH IN COMPETITIONS AND WON MORE THAN SHE LOST. SHE HAS BEEN SURROUNDED BY TROPHIES SHE HAS WON IN 7 YEARS STRAIGHT. THIS YEAR IT HAS BEEN HARD TO TAKE HER OUT TO SHOW, BECAUSE IT IS HARDER TO CLIMB UP ON HER AND LOAD HER. SO HUBBY DECIDED THAT SOMEONE ELSE SHOULD HAVE THE HONOR. SURE ENOUGH A 15YR OLD BOY HAS GONE NUTS OVER HER. SHE WANTS HER BADLY!!! HUBBY WAS SO IMPRESSED WITH HIS ENTHUSIASM THAT HE SOLD HER AND ALL HER EQUIPMENT TO HIM. BOY WAS THAT BOY  OVER THE MOON!!! HE IS GOING TO SHOW HER AND COMPETE WITH HER IN THE SHOWS. NOTHING MAKES HUBBY ANY HAPPIER THAN A KID THAT WILL TAKE TENDER LOVING CARE OF “ALLIE”. TODAY SHE IS GOING TO A NEW HOME AND WE KNOW THAT WE WILL SEE HER AT THE SHOWS IN ALL HER GLORY.  NOW HUBBY SAYS, I GET MY KUBOTA TRACTOR!!! YEA! YEA!   I KNEW THERE WAS SOMETHING HE WANTED TO FILL UP THAT SPACE!!!!

SO GOOD BYE “ALLIE” WE WILL BE SEEING YOU ON THE CIRCUIT.  GOOD LUCK GIRL!!!! THANKS FOR THE GREAT TIMES!!
