Sharing a wonderful post

This is a blog I visit regularly... I started because of her recipes but go back now for her posts... everything including the recipes. Tonight I ran across this post ... it was very thought provoking about photographs and memories.... here is a small excerpt:

"One day that will be all that's left of me . . . just a few pictures in a box. Will someone wonder about who I was, and what I stood for, or will I have left a legacy that speaks for itself?? Will they look into my eyes and see the joy there . . . and the pain . . . and the hope?? Will they see all my yesterdays linked to their tomorrows . . . will the essence of my being be able to reach down through the passage of time and speak to their hearts??"

Please go read the post for your self and see if it doesn't touch you at your very core.

Three years ago today

Three years ago today I lost one of my best friends... My Daughter's Daddy.
I miss you soooo very much... I would give anything just to talk to you one more time, to see your smirky smile, to hear your smart alec comments, to feel your hug... But most importantly I would give even my life if Cassie could just spend one more hour with you.
I love you and miss you so very much my friend. Life has not been and will never be the same without you in it. I MISS YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

( I should have taken the picture AFTER I cleaned of his head stone)


I said I was going to do blog candy at 50,000 hits... well, I passed it without realizing it!!! from my stats counter I am at 50,521.
I know MOST of my hits were from when I gave out digi templets for scrapbooking but have no idea how many since I started doing what I am doing now... So here are the rules: Just post my candy on your blog, and post a comment on this post.
School starts here on Sept 3rd... so after school I will have my daughter pick a winner. PLEASE check back to see if you have won!
This is what I have so far (I plan on adding stuff that I have made and a few supply things): File folder box, box and six 3x3 cards and a little note book.
I may even make a different set of things for a second winner.
Thank you for visiting my blog :)

COMMENTS are now CLOSED... I will pick a winner by the morning... life is crazier here than I thought being the first day of school and after school activities!

Be Still and Know

This came in my in-box... wanted to share:

MountainWings A MountainWings Moment
#8228 Wings Over The Mountains of Life

Be Still and Know

In my life I have faced many struggles.

I am human and by nature I have grown sin weary and overburdened.

My hands have worked alone, in vain to build masterpieces
that always fall short of perfection.

In the midst of despair, I place my discouraged heart
in the hands of the one who softly whispers,
“Be still and know that I am God.”

I place my confidence in the one who faithfully works
to do what is positively right for me.

I rely on the perfect knowledge that keeps Him from doing
anything in my life that is not exactly what I need.

He is the Lord of creation, and yet He is committed to gently
knocking at the door of my heart.

I adore the God whose love is so pure that He sent His son to
live a perfect life for me. His love is so holy that He sent
His son to shed His blood on the cross for me.

I treasure the God who will never stop forgiving me.

My hope is in the one who knows the depths of my heart and still
loves me so passionately and watchfully.

The one who softly whispers,

“Be still and know that I am God.”

~A MountainWings Original poem by Billi Jo Bentley, Albany, OH~
Based on Psalms 151
