What have we done lately?

Today the 11 year old had another nosebleed AGAIN !I am hoping is just his cold and NOT the leukemia back again,although his blood-counts WERE really good just last week…

I saw this idea on another blog and now trained our Shih Tzu puppy Wilson to do it: I say,”Stand up for Jesus!” and hold my hand above his head and he gets up on 2 hind legs and “Dances”.Telling him to “Sit!” the 2 year old thought it was for HIM and he quickly sat down on the ground!!

The pool needed stabilizer.Now normally this is poured slowly into the skimmer, but for some unknown reason it had been “burning off” too quickly so they had us do the following: fill a SOCK half- full with the crystals, tie it off,and tie it to the ladder,gently floating in the water, so it can slowly dissolve over time, giving it a squeeze daily! Now THIS has got to be one of the weirdest things I have ever done! 🙂

Say it isn’t so April Rose!

Well, now the general consensus from fellow bloggers and comments seems to indicate the whole baby April Rose blog was nothing more than an elaborate scam,afterall! It was a cruel hoax; a fraud. I have to say I’m quite surprised and taken aback by it; I sincerely thought they were legitimate; they seemed so sincere.It shocks, saddens,and stuns me to find out it’s likely otherwise. I feel hurt,mislead, and disillusioned.I don’t,however, ever regret praying. Prayer is NEVER wasted,and if nothing else, still reflects well on those of us who genuinely cared about what we thought was a family in need.We must never stop caring, or stop praying because we have been “had”, because we have been hurt, because we have felt cheated and betrayed. I agree this is painfully dishonest and a cruel thing to do, to string people’s emotions along like that(not to mention those who donated to them!) but God is good and we must not stop caring,even though there ARE a lot of people out there who aren’t who they claim to be; the world IS full of deception and sin, but we must rise above that as well as to forgive.
