August 29, 1976...
in a little country church...
I gave my heart to the Lord.
I will never forget that night.
When I got up from the alter,
I was surrounded by the whole church body,
singing "Oh How I Love Jesus".
A load was lifted from me.
I could see with new eyes.
God's love filled my heart.
Without the Lord in my life,
I don't believe I'd be here today.
He has brought me through many hard times.
He has blessed me with many good times.
He has blessed me with a wonderful family.
He has given me special friends in blog land.
He has supplied my every need.
I praise God for His Word,
and the drawing power of the Holy Spirit.
If thou shalt confess with thy mouth
the Lord Jesus,
and shalt believe in thine heart
that God hath raised Him from the dead,
thou shalt be saved.
Romans 10:9
I would love to hear about your salvation experience.

What a great Saturday.
I gave up yard selling
to go fishing!
The weather was great.
The breeze felt wonderful.
Such a great day for fishing.
Making the day even greater...
my granddaughter, Holley,
got to go with us.
She loves fishing too.
She caught the first...
and biggest fish!
Just look at that smile!

We had a great time!

My dad turned 85 on August 20th.
On Sunday, we treated him (and us)
to an ice cream cake......

Oh, how I love sitting outside
on a not so hot evening
with a fire in the fire pit
by the fish pond.

Huey likes to join us.

We had an unexpected visitor...
he flew down from the sky
like a hellicopter,
landing on a chair.
Huey was currious.

He got a little closer to inspect.

He followed it around as it moved
along the chair,
keeping a little distance.
Following on around.
Up on his hind legs
for a closser look.
Well, here, our visitor decided it was time leave...
taking his flight so fast I didn't get a
picture of his retreat.
That was so much fun....
just watching Huey.
