Weekend of fun

Well my family and went to the Roanoke area last weekend to my Uncle Ray's house. We went to help him make homemade applebutter. We had a lot of fun and it was a unique experience for my kids. It allowed them to see how things "used" to be done. My uncle has three fairly large black copper lined pots that we set over fire and cook all day long.
My mom got to go with us and on the way back home Sunday we drove down Blueridge Parkway...its early yet for the leaves but it was still nice and cool and very beautiful drive.

Well basketball is gearing up now. Practices should start in the next week or so. Busy, busy again.

Tomorrow night Dale and the kids are driving with folks from church down to the Durham area to Bro Rick Finley's church to hear Dr. Jack Schapp from First Baptist in Hammond IN preach. For those who don't know....his church is where our teens go for youth conference. It should be a great time for them. I'd love to go but probably won't get off work in time...boohoo.

Monday, Monday!!!

Hope everyone had a great weekend...I know I had a good one! It was a 1st week back at work!! I guess most of you know I had a hysterectomy 4 weeks ago. I'm healing fine from that...I'm awaiting results from some blood work his past Thursday to make sure my estrogen levels and hemoglobin is not low...otherwise I'm doing really good.

The kids went Swaders Sports Park Friday night for teen activity. They had a blast...good clean fun!!
Savannah got to spend the weekend with a friend and go to Kings Dominion Sunday...sound like they had a good time too.
Derrick and I wend soulwinning at churc Saturday. He got to go with his girlfriends dad and won a man to the Lord. I had the opportunity to go out with some of the teen girls that ride our buses to church. That was a blessing. I led a woman to the Lord and the girl that was with me was sooo excited. It was truly a blessing to see her excitement!
Then yesterday during Sunday school I had the opportunity to lead a young girl 17 to the Lord, she walked the isle after church and got baptized!!!
WHAT A BANNER WEEKEND!!! God is sooo good!

My husband and I will celebrate out 15th wedding anniversay this Thursday!! God had truly blessed me with a wonderful, loving man!!! God knew what I needed and 15 years down the road, I am truly blessed!! I don't know what I would do without him...he's my rock, my world!!!

Well that's all for now. Remember God is good... ALL THE TIME!!

Great weekend in West Virginia

We had a blast in Martinsburg, WV at Brother Jeff Owens church, Shenandoah Baptist Church for the ladie's conference. Great speakers and the message Brother Owens gave was just awesome!! He spoke about tasting and savoring a candy bar representing how we should appreciate all that we have been blessed with, all that God had provided us!! It was really, really good.

Also while Savannah and I were gone Derrick got to go fishing with his Dad. They had a great day of fishing and Derrick caught a 10lb catfish. Yeah for the one that "didn't" get a way!!

Well till later, remember...God is good..ALL THE TIME!!

Some pics

Been a long time!!

Wow!! Can't believe that summer is gone. Where has the time flown.

So much has happened over the summer months. I tend to keep up with my Facebook more than the Blog. My husband doesn't realize keeping up on these sites takes time!! HAHA.

Savannah has turned 16, Derrick turned 13 this past Sunday. They both had great birthdays!!!

Savannah was recently in the Miss Chesterfield County Fair pageant. They are both starting basketball up again. Derrick decided not to play football this year.

Can't believe it was a year ago last Wed that my Dad went back into the hospital for the last time...and a year ago this Friday that we was transfered to Henrico Doctors where he ramained till he went to be with the Lord!! GOLLY...I MISS HIM SOOO MUCH!!!

I do however get to go to West Virginia this weekend to the Ladies Meeting...REALLY looking forward to it!! I'll try to post some pictures. If I don't...catch 'em on Facebook!!

Remember....God is good....ALL THE TIME!!!
