Sunday May 31st

Great day at church today. Jamey Nettles did a great job preaching from Exodus, and as always Patrick and the band were awesome. Karlie is enjoying her small group of teens at church. Chloe and Kaleb told me that today they learned if you didn't have Jesus then your life is like a doughnut because you have a hole in the middle of your heart. That reminded me of when Karlie was little and we were at Capshaw Baptist. I used to get videos of The Doughnut Man and that was his theme song. When she was saved she told me that she didn't have a hole in the middle of her heart anymore. I am so glad she doesn't and the rest of our family doesn't!!! Now.....if we can remember what Jamey said this morning about not going where God doesn't go. In other words if God said he was going to give us everything we ever wanted but he wasn't going to go and be a part of it would we go. I hope we all would not. I hope our kids wouldn't choose to live that way. Thank goodness our church preaches that and hopefully Greg and I can live it!!

Okay.. I said this was going to be funny. Greg has decided that since summer is here he would set specific times for them to get a snack since they can eat junk all day. This is probably because Greg caught Chloe with a big jar of peanut butter and a spoon with her in her bed the other night. That girl is a mess!!! I can't think of anything really funny that Kaleb and karlie did today, but don't worry there will be a lot of stuff on here before u know it.

Well...please remember Rex Looney in your prayers tonight. He is having another heart cath tomorrow morning. Please remember our family as we leave EARLY in the morning to travel to Chattanooga to go to my granny's husband's funeral.

Good Night

In The Begining

Okay....Greg thought of the title!! Since I am an ISS teacher AND a crossing guard, he thought this would be appropriate. I will try not to rant too much about either one really because I love being both!!!! Especially a crossing guard!!!. I see some funny things while I am standing in the middle of the road. Sometimes I smell some strange smells I haven't smelled since high school!! Yeah... u guessed it. POT!!!! How can people drive and smoke pot at the same time. Well, I hope they are at least driving well when they pass me. I saw a guy the other day brushing his teeth. That was a new one. I'm gonna give him a hard time about that since I know him. I've been whistled at, cussed at, told have a nice day, told thanks for protecting our children and even a "get the ...out of the ...road." I think it is funny when teachers are running late and they cross the middle line a little with their car hoping I see them so I will let them through. OF course I do then point to my watch and laugh. I hate I missed the last day of school due to a stomach bug. I am going to miss directing traffic the next 2 months. I really thank God for giving me this job. It is hard to believe that I absolutely love directing traffic. Who would have thought. Plus...financially we really love it.
Now......As for my ISS job. I love it also. Most of my repeat offenders have a story. It is sad to learn what some of their stories are. I think some people think I am not hard enough on them. Why beat them why they are down. True...some need a good butt whipping and I tell them that too. Some just need to know someone cares. Don't get me wrong. I get onto them and yell when I have to. I need a new door on my portable. I think I slammed it to many times and it is warped. Now, I have to kick it to get it open. I haven't slammed it in a while though. We really had a good group of kids this year. And no... I do not wear my police uniform when i am at school!!
My most important job and most enjoyable job, now that my kids are older, is being a mom. I will probably use this blog to write mostly about their funny stories and how much Greg and I love them. They are really good kids and I am proud to say that they all have asked Jesus Christ to live in their heart. I have prayed that they would all three do this at a young age and he answered my prayer.
So...... since school is out finally (thank God) I will write about our family, and what God is doing in my life. Now....if you would like some serious spirtual blogging you may go to She is an awesome teacher and you will get a lot of spiritual insight from reading her blog. We are friends so I hereby approve her blog! As for my blog....well, hopefully you will get a lot of laughs and maybe a little spiritual insight from me as well. Maybe.
