Happy New Year Everybody

My wish for everyone is that you will all have a Happy and a Blessed New year. Be safe this New Years Eve Night everyone. I wish everyone good health and happiness in 2010. I hope everyone can see the Blue Moon tonight. It is supposed to rain and maybe some snow showers here tonight so that means I probably won't get to see it.

Merry Christmas To All For Friday

I am posting my entry today because everyone will be so busy tomorrow, going here and there and running around getting ready for that Special Day.

My wish for everyone is for them to have a very Merry Christmas wherever and whomever you  are during this special season. May you remember what this season is all about and give praise to our King.

Remember the season

This is the most special day of the year.

Our king is born

Remember each Child and pray that they receive a gift of love for Christmas.

The church where we went - Check out the blue sky

I mentioned in my last post that we were to go put flowers on my Parents and my Babies graves. I did go with Ken and am
no worse for wear. Mira met us there and I got a hug.
I was a member of this Baptist Church for twenty years. I joined this church when I was eleven years old and my faith is still strong. It dawned on me that I didn't have a picture of this church anywhere so while I had my camera with me I went ahead and took a picture of it. It has some Sunday school rooms in the back in an add on building. To the left side and behind is a very large cemetery. My family is buried in the back part of the cemetery. To the right is a road and across the road is a large building where they have dinners and such.

My mother taught Sunday School there for twenty six years until she got to be unable to attend church on account of several mini strokes which affected her mind. We found out she also had cancer soon after that and lived seven more months. On the day of her funeral the Sunday school members cooked a large lunch for our family members in the large meeting center. 

My Grandparents on my Dad's side and one of his brothers is buried to the left. Another of his brothers is buried in the back. His grandparents are buried in the side center.

 My GG grandparents on my Mothers side are buried about in the middle of the cemetery. One of my Mother's sisters is buried in the plot with my parents. There are probably some older family members somewhere there that I know nothing about. 
There are also some old graves with no markers in center of the cemetery and no one knows who they were.

Have a good Tuesday everyone and may it be a blessed one. Helen

Getting closer

Well here we are getting closer and closer. Santa is getting close to Alabama.

PhotobucketWe have been doing a little toward getting ready but it's a slow go. Fortunately we didn't have any snow to cope with this weekend. 
I went back to the eye doc last week and the pressure in my eyes are still pretty high. He changed my eye drops and wrote a new prescription for some more. Well I looked on my insurance and it is is the highest tier so needless to say I will see if he can change that to something else today. He is is this town only on Monday's but it being this close to Christmas he may not be in today. I will call before I go. Meanwhile I am still using my current drops. 

Will everyone visit Jon who recently lost his mother and doesn't have any family or friends  close by to be with him this Christmas. I know it will be a lonely one for him. Thanks.

One day this week we will or Ken will go take Christmas flowers to the cemetery for my parents and my two baby boys. It takes about and hour and a half to get there and then have to come back. I certainly don't want to be where I can't motivate around for Christmas so Ken has offered and I may let him take them because I still have things to do and things to cook here.
The economy being what it is we are playing Dirty Santa again this year, Everyone enjoys doing that and has so much fun.

 Well I have sit here long enough. Time to go back to bed. I am having one of those regular sleepless nights where I sleep a couple of hours then have to get up and mess around a while until I get sleepy again. I do this every night so that is nothing new. This when I make some of my blog entry's. My back gets stiff and hurts so I get up and move around for a while.

Thanks Sugar for most of my graphics 

 I Hope everyone has a blessed Monday.

Ken's eyes

Hello everybody. It has been a while since I made an entry so I thought it was about time to do that.
Ken went back to the eye doc this morning and the doc says the bleeding has stopped to come back in six weeks to let him check it again. Said his visual range was better. I suppose that is because the bleeding was hindering his vision.

I have been putting out a few Christmas decorations and have my small fiber optic tree out.
Trying to clean a little before Christmas but with these two dogs and their shedding I will have to do it again LOL. Guess I am just wasting my time. 

Wish I had something interesting to say but I haven't been getting out much to see anything to talk about LOL.
Have a blessed night everyone.
