Site change coming soon…

There’s a change coming to my site….soon….

Due to my recent mishap, I’ve decided to go ahead with my own dot com.

Or URL.

Or whatever you wanna’ call it. 

I’ll try and keep everyone posted….

But stayed tuned….

My site will be insertgracehere.com.

And hopefully a re-design will follow.

If you need help with WordPress or if you’re considering your own URL, be sure to see Cathy at Desperately Seeking WordPress.

Read the fine print!

easy-bake-oven

We weren’t surprised when Courtney asked her boyfriend, Aubrey, to get her an Easy Bake Oven for her 16th birthday.  Not in the least. 

The girl can’t cook Easy Mac.  As soon as the mico-fast cheese product and macaroni hit the market Courtney convinced me to waste my money on it.  One day I smelled something awful.  Kinda’ like burnt popcorn.  I asked the girls what it was.  Courtney had a sheepish grin on her face. 

She was feeling all ambitious and decided to cook up some Easy Mac.  So she put the noodles in the bowl.   And then put the bowl in the microwave and turned it on for the required time.  I’m no Alton Brown, but it would appear that she missed a step.  Something important.  Like the water.  It was right there on the box.  AND the cheese product envelope.  She did finally graduate to correctly microwave cooking Easy Mac.

Congratulations, Courtney.

So, like I said, we weren’t surprised.  When Aubrey’s mom, Michelle, asked if she “reallly” wanted and Easy Bake Oven, I assured her that yes, yes she did.  She, in fact, needed it.  And if Aubrey is going to even consider a remote possibility of a future with her, perhaps it would be in his best interest to get the oven.  And then later she could try more challenging things.  Like perhaps a microwave cookbook.

When she pulled out the tiny little accessories she had this look on her face:

And uttered these words:  “HUH?  I’m not FIVE!”

Really Courtney?  Really?  Next time read the fine print.

AGES: 8 & Up

Sure, she’s up in age from 8.  But you just wouldn’t know it…

Potholders?

Potholders?

Careful, Courtney!  Those are cooked with a lightbulb.

 

Cookies, I think?

Cookies, I think?

RUNNNNNN!

RUNNNNNN!

That’s it… runnn, Sophie!  RUN!

Courtney, don’t you worry.  I’ll write Hasbro and ask them to make an Easier Bake Oven.

X Marks The Spot

ARRRGHHHHHHHHH….

After my much posting last night, I had a “brilliant idea”!  I thought I’d clean up the pictures in my media file.

YEP, that’s right.  I actually THOUGHT they would only be deleted from my media.

SO, if you happen to read a post with lots of X’s and no pics, tha’ts why!

Meanwhile, I’ve contacted WordPress to see if it’s possible to undo such BIG msitakes.

Otherwise, I shall work my way backwards INSERTING EVERY SINGLE PICTURE I DELETED….

Thank you for your patience during my construction….

Happy Birthday Ginger!

Happy Birthday, Ginger!  January 29, 1973
Ain't she sweet?

Ain't she sweet?

Pooky

Pooky

You were small enough to fit in Mom and Dad’s hands when you made your debut on January 29, 1973.  Your birth may have been premature according to medical standards, but you were right on time with God’s plan.  Though you were small in size, I’m certain that you had some mighty lungs.  And He was faithful to keep you.
I wonder how old you were when we realized you were endowed with the gift of gab?
Probably not when you were in Pre-school taking pictures and the photographer asked you if you were married.  You had your lip poked out in that picture.  I wish I had a copy of that one to post.  And the one of you sitting on top of the kitchen table. 
You were small, but somewhere along the line that belly poked out.  Maybe that’s why we started calling you Pooky.
Now you’re 5’2″ with eyes of blue.
Small in stature, mighty in Christ.
Throughout the years I’ve seen you grow amazingly.  I’ve watched you overcome so many obstacles emotionally as well as physically.  You’ve fought many battles.  Your love for the Word of God is evident as you determine to overcome.
I’m certain those places that you left behind will be the platform for your ministry.  They are now.  Every tear cried, every pain, every sorrow, every fear.  As they’ve turned into your victories, they are becoming your message.
I love that you listen.  You really listen.  That’s a rare and priceless gift.  You have been encourager and exhorter to me.  You are one of few people I allow to speak into my life. 
Blogging would not be as fun or fulfilling without you.  I truly believe God has opened doors through blogging.  And I’m looking forward to what’s ahead.
Keep on keeping on!
And Ginger, GET OUT OF THE BOAT!
Happy 36th Birthday!
May this be your best year yet!
I LOVE YOU, my sister, my friend!
The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD has anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;
To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;
To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.
Isaiah 61:1-3
