"How are my boys today?" Asks Josepeh.
"Good, good," they say in unison as they play. Joseph continues to work and is startled when he looks up to see Jesus playing with some of his nails.
"Jesus, don't touch those! They could hurt you!"
Little Jesus holds one up curiousley. "Daddy what are these?"
"Those are nails Jesus," says Joseph. "Carpenters use them in their shop to build things. The purpose of a nail is to bring together two things that are seperated."
Join us as we use scripture and a little imagination to portray what DID and could have happened in the life of Christ...

I remember after she left. One day at church I was just sitting there kinda missing her and trying to understand what all had happened. I just kept thinking in my head, she is not my girl, but it feels she is, but she is not, just get over it. After church, outta the blue, my neice Marry Joe, who my sister Theresa is her foster mom, came running over to me. She says to me;
"I am Theresa's baby and Esther is YOUR baby."
As soon as she said that I was like oh, Okay God I heard you! I may only be 13 years older than her. We may not ever live together. It may not make sense, it may seem weird, but Esther and I have an understanding that we will always belong to each other. I love you Esther!!!
This is our story!!!

I found this picture on another blogger's website and the above statment with it. I have to say that I totally agree with her! Look at our new president reaching out too all those adorable little kids!!! It really is a sweet picture, YOU ALL have to admit that!!! I for one would like to stand up and give him an aplause for taking the time to shake hands with "The Little People!!!"
"I've got two daughters, 9 years old and 6 years old. I am going to teach them first of all about values and morals. But if they make a mistake, I don't want them punished with a baby." ( Barack Hussein Obama Newly elected U.S. President)
Too bad there are some "Little People" that will never have the chance to shake his hand-because they are a "punishment."
I believe that ONLY God the creator is the determinor of when life should begin or end. If you believe the same PASS IT ON!!!-Started by Mary Frances Ginty-

But how many of you all have ever actually done the words that you have typed?!?! RFLOL? Think about it? SOOOOOOOOOOO I decided to try it!!! HAHA!!!
My neice and I have this little game we play with my brothers. Who is your favorite? ANd she always says; Aunt Mary!!! Which immediatley gets my brother John pouting. AND I, being the sweet, loving and mature sister that I am just LOVE to rub it in!!! Soooooo I start laughing!!! But one day I decided that LAUHgING just wasn't enough. So I just fell to the ground, (FOR EMPHASIS) and started rolling and hitting the ground. The best part was that Marry Joe joined me!!! HAHA! Its soooooo funny!
But the thing that really got me laughing is I look up and there is my mom just sitting calmly at the kitchen table sorting her coupons. I said, "Mom, don't you think this scenario is a little strange? Your 19-year-old son is pouting and your 25-year-old daughter is rolling on the floor lauging out loud?! She is like nope! I am used to this kinda stuff by now!!! LOL
Anyways, next time your about to type out RFLOL, why not try it!!! Really!!! It is sooooooooo much fun!!! Especially if you are laughing AT someone! It just makes it even more annoying!!! Although, I don't reccomend doing this in public!!! HAHA!!! Keep it within the family and close friends! (I don't want to be the blame of anyone being put into the HAPPY HOUSE!!! ;)
So I wanna know, has anyone actually ever found themself RFLOL?!?! Or am I the only cRaZy person around?
"Because I'm a woman," she told him.
"I don't understand," he said.
His Mom just hugged him and said, "And you never will."
Later the little boy asked his father, "Why does mother seem to cry for no reason?"
"All women cry for no reason," was all his dad could say.
The little boy grew up and became a man, still wondering why women cry.
Finally he put in a call to God.
When God got on the phone, he asked,
"God, why do women cry so easily?"God said:
"When I made the woman she had to be special.
I made her shoulders strong enough to carry the weight of the world, yet gentle enough to give comfort.
I gave her an inner strength to endure childbirth and the rejection that many times comes from her children.
I gave her a hardness that allows her to keep going when everyone else gives up, and take care of her family through sickness and fatigue without complaining.
I gave her the sensitivity to love her children under any and all circumstances, even when her child has hurt her very badly.
I gave her strength to carry her husband through his faults and fashioned her from his rib to protect his heart.
I gave her wisdom to know that a good husband never hurts his wife, but sometimes tests her strengths and her resolve to stand beside him unfalteringly.
And finally, I gave her a tear to shed.
This is hers exclusively to use whenever it is needed."
"You see my son," said God, "the beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair.
The beauty of a woman must be seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart - the place where love resides."
* Okay I like just found this on someone's blog and I think I am gonna start crying!!! LOL I used to NEVER cry! I didn't even cry when I got the Holy Ghost!!! I was just HAPPY!! But something happened to me since I grew up and now I find the tears coming quite more often!! Anyways I think this is beautiful and I want it like read in my wedding or something!!!
P.S. I am still happy...I just laugh till I cry now!!! HAHA!
