Happy Birthday Jesus 2010


Boobie Blunders

Well I went and did it again. Those of you who keep up with the blog know that sometime back in September/august I completely dislocated my left knee for the fourth time and reset it myself on the floor of my master bedroom with four screaming children in the house. Luckily enough Jason was home early and all was well. Then two weeks ago in the complete chaos of all that was and is our move--I fell. I fell HARD and spent 5 hours in the Er thinking that I may actually have had a break. All was well, just a major sprain. I jumped into a walking boot and didn't miss a beat.
Well today, with great intentions, I went out to help Jason install the poles to finish out the 1/2 existing chain link fence around the parsonage....well, I am sure you can guess what happened.
I thank God that I had the clarity of mind to put on my air brace before I went outside. It did some damage but it would have been no much worse if I had not been wearing the brace. No new sprain!…

Blogging for Books Review #1

The Everything Christmas Book: Stories, Songs, Food, Traditions, Revelry, and More [Paperback]

Brandon Toropov (Author), Sharon Gapen Cook (Author), Marian Gonsior (Editor), Susan Robinson (Editor), Peter Weiss (Editor), Barry Littmann (Illustrator)

As the cover states, "celebrate the joy of the Advent Season with the Best of Christmas Past and Present". I found this book to be a charming daily devotional, perfect for the chaos that is the month of December. Heartwarming stories and tummy tickling recipes will help you slowly and comfortably make the transition into the season that we can very easily find ourselves overwhelmed. This book can guide you in a very memorial, and poetic way back to the true meaning and spirit of this holiday season. Wonderful recipes long forgotten, adorable hymns whose lyrics sometimes fall aside from generation to generation and become nothing more than a recognizable tune void of meaning. But NOT SO, with Everything Christmas. You will find wonder…

Help Deborah Stevens Purifoy

Deborah Stevens Purifoy is a 30 year old mother of four who lives in Doddridge, Arkansas. Deborah has been married to her loving and devoted husband, Alex Purifoy, for 13 years. Two years ago due to some poor choices she found herself in a high-speed major motor vehicle accident. The driver in the accident was incarcerated, a passenger in the vehicle suffered fatal injuries, and Deborah's life was changed forever.
In the accident on May 29, 2009, the muscles in Deborah's lower abdomen were ripped by her safety belt causing a major abdominal hernia which required emergency surgery to implant mesh netting. She also required 60 plus staples and stitches in top back left left side of head due to trama from the impact. Two areas of her right forearm were broken. She also required stitches to close three large lacerations to her right arm and two on her left arm--such large areas of tissue were ripped from her arms that physicians believed they may have to perform skin grafts. Her ri…
