end of trip pictures.

I was at Anna,s for a few I better get on the ball and put the rest of the pictures on.
this was the sail boat close to the dock.they had a lovely day to sail.

you can see the tall pines in this one.and the crows doing their flying dives.they were not to happy when I was getting ready to leave.they were going were the gulls.

the sun was getting low when I drove through town.and I could see how pretty the resort looked from the other I drove down to take a picture so you could see how nice a little resort it is..
I will miss the place and would like to go to it again.but I am sure Ill be going to visit another one.

Its a rainy day here and so after Anna and I went shopping and out to eat. we came back and unloaded my food and new presto skillet I got for only 24,99.its a awesome one.I took Anna to eat at DQ..we got bouble cheese bugers frys and she got a coke and I got a artic blast was so good but I got a brain frezze that hurt like heck.
we then went to one of the bargin stores.I got too warm and headed out to the van.
this will be short cause I been busy and just dont have much to share today.maybe Ill be more up to it tomorow.
the 6th I go to stay with my step mom for a few days while my brother and his wife and kids go for a trip out west.
she is putting my Dad in the home for the time my brother is gone cause she cant take care of Dad we will be there alone.
she didnt want to be all alone so she asked me to come.I really dont feel like going cause I am still tired yet from my trip.but Ill go to keep her will be like old times.I use to stay there when I was in my teens after my mom and Dad were divorced.
it was fun.she wasnt the one who broke up the family so I could like her.she was good to me..
well everyone God bless you and have a great week..

I love the pics, Leann, especially the sailboat. Have a good visit with your stepmom this weekend.

Speaking of the Dairy Queen -
Man! We have one up the road from my house that cooks the best burgers of any DQ in Cobb County. They've been having a burger sale all summer, doubles for 99 cents and I really need to lay off of them - the onion rings too. haha
We too love the DQ, it is much better than Mickey D's. I like that charbroiled taste.

Hey na good pics i like em hey check out this poem.

T.J.s sonnet

Those curves that I feel I love

Sent Pain through my body when I hit

The Structure that protects your love,

If you have problems, then, with it.

I need protection when I go

When from home to other I go

Those hard beings all in a row

The reaping of the wrong I sow

Forgiveness you must sow for love

And trust From God to receive

To go to the place if by dove

Of perfection and never leave

God saves, when you forgive and pray,

You for his kingdom far away.

thanks for stopping.have a great week.Ill be back some time this week,or weekend.

T Dogg;
awesome have so many talents kid...I am proud of you kid.thanks for sharing it with me.

yes when kids leave the house no matter where they go we need to pray for them.for Gods protection.

one of the first things the Lord gave me for you was."no weapon formed again you will prosper".
so we wrote it down and put it under the sheet of your cribb.

I am glad your doing so well in school and that the teachers like you.
its also cool what your english teacher said.about you finding a job where you can use your nice speaking voice.guess even the world is says you have a calling for your voice in this end times.
the family needs some preachers in it.with your wonderful way of being able to memorize things from the bible and the way you can speak.its no wonder you have a calling on your life.
let me just say so you know.
"you can run but you cant hide from God".
when he told me Id been called to lead my family to scared me a lot.I figured no one would listen to me.and I told him so.
but he saw in me some thing I didnt.and its what he used.
I saw a failure and a woman who had been divorced and who wasnt very smart.
he saw some thing that would work for him.and he most have used it cause almost all of them have recieved him as their savoir.

dont waste the talents you have from him on the world sectom,it will never give you the things your looking for.if you dont believe me look at the ones who have gone before you.those who seeded to the world reaped only what it can give.those who seeded to the kingdom of God have treasure stored in heaven where moth and rust cant not distroy.
"seek first the kingdom of God,and all these things shell be added unto you."
in other words while your seeking him and his will,he is building your kingdom.

for T,J.(the voice.)

there was a first born son,God spoke of him long before he was even born.
He placed a calling on his life,long before he even found a wife.
he grow and was easy to teach,he listened and learned before he could speak.
he learned at his Na Na,s knee,about the man God wanted him to be.
his mom taught him how to have a tender heart,so the world could not tear him apart.
so some day when the time was right,God could use him to spread his light.
a calling will be fulfilled..
love you TJ..
just think at lest you have your brother to help you do your calling.
I was sent alone.
