Camping Out in Our Old Van

     Our old van (well Niki and Dustin's old van that we traded them for), is a perfect spot for the kids to play in.  They have taken out the seats, and laid down blankets and pillows, set up a TV and DVD player, movies to watch, and popcorn and lemonade to snack on.  They also got to roast marshmallow's outside too.  :+)  Cheap and entertaining fun!  LOL!!!  When the fun ends, we'll junk the van, but for now, it's a source of fun. 

Grandbaby #7

Our oldest son, Zach, and his wife Meghan, had a beautiful baby girl, Nevaeh Colleen Rain Benedict, born on Mother's Day, May 8th, this year (2011).  We are blessed to be able to see her often and be a part of her life like we have all our grandkids.  We are so blessed that they all live close enough to us that we can see and talk to them whenever we want, or be there to help in times of need!

Fibromyalgia/Chronic Pain

I have been having a fibromyalgia flare up all week this week, worse than I have for a long time. Then to top it off, I slipped down the stairs when my left leg gave way, and hurt my wrist, ankle and elbow. Being in chronic pain and trying to keep up with everything doesn't always work no matter how hard I try. I am determined though to keep claiming God's healing though in Jesus Name!!!

For those of us who have fibromyalgia (or anything else similar), whichever works FOR YOU, complete faith or seeing your doctor, "Thank God for your healing - HOWEVER it comes! - and do NOT let Satan put you under condemnation. It is none of his business!!!" (a quote by Kenneth Copeland)
