At a missions conference on Thursday evening... Each year, they start off with a number, 0. It then  keeps increasing. 
Just about 24 hours later, I saw this number. This is the amount of people that died in the 24 hours since the counter began. Died and gone into eternity, without Christ. Lost. In Hell. Is one of these you? Does this bother you?

Just One More....

I could not resist. I was going through my photo's as I am working on how to use photoshop and take photo's... So, I found a photo of Casey, taken at the same time as this one. I did some altering on the white balance, and such. Terms I do not yet know, but played with thinga ma bobs and came up with this.

New Soloist in the CHurch

No Flash Entries for the I Heart Blog.

I think the photo's I am going to enter are the ones I have already taken,
Here is my Kids entry
This is my daughter Casey, taken last week! No flash!
For the Adult Entry: There is not an adult entry:)

My Princess

This is my princess, she is 4 years old. We have had since was 12 weeks old.

She is my baby... She does not always look so groomed, usually Casey and I groom the dogs. We felt bad for her, so we took her to a beauty salon (for dogs) and got her all spiffied up.. Our next monster goes soon. He is our beast.
She is the same one in the video that I have posed on here.

Come Lord Jesus

I know some of my readership voted for Obama.  But this is alarming news. I happen to find Glen Beck a credible source.  I know you may disagree with me, but I needed to post this. 
Oh Lord, Jesus! Come quickly!
Playing Fiddle on Late-Night TV

Friday, March 20, 2009
By Glenn Beck

While Rome is burning, Nero is playing the fiddle on late-night television.

I know it's easy to tune out — especially on a Friday when you probably just want to order a pizza and watch basketball — but that's just what people are counting on.

If you want some real "March madness," just look at some of this week's fires:

 Big United Nations members — including Russia and (surprise, surprise) the French — have called for an end to the dollar and suggested a global currency.

 The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office now estimates that our budget is $1.5 trillion more than their estimate from just a few weeks ago.

 The Fed is pumping another $1 trillion into the system by buying debt from our treasury.

 Our government is shredding the Constitution by using the IRS as a weapon to target specific individuals with a 90 percent tax!

 According to USA Today, 11.2 percent of veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan are now unemployed.

 We've now lost a million jobs in two months.

But while all of those historic things are happening, President Obama is fiddling like... well, like a very famous fiddler who's name I would love to know right now.

He's ranting about AIG bonuses that his administration had a part in authorizing; he's filling out NCAA brackets; he's working on his bowling technique; his wife is planting gardens at the White House, and then he goes on "The Tonight Show," apparently to demonstrate that the economy has now been fixed and we can all laugh about how close we came to disaster.

(I wonder if the millions who are out of work find it funny?)

No other sitting president has ever gone on "The Tonight Show" before and it's possible that no other sitting president has ever been this out of touch.


While Obama is on "The Tonight Show," you are on the front lines, fighting our fires with just a shovel and a garden hose.

More proof America can't count on its government anymore and it's why I've been telling you all along that our future depends on you.

I hope the preacher does not preach too long.

Proverbs 25:21

 21If thine enemy be hungry, give him bread to eat; and if he be thirsty, give him water to drink:

Philippians 4:12

 12I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.

The Rest of the Crew

I figure, I do show off my daughter quite a bit.

Why I’m Planting A Garden - Surviving The Middle Class Crash

Why I’m Planting A Garden - Surviving The Middle Class Crash 


http://survivingthe middleclasscrash .wordpress. com/2009/ 03/15/why- im-planting- a-garden/


By Shirley Braverman

In 1947, two years after world war II ended there were 20 million small gardens in the United States. They provided 40% of the produce in the American Diet. The gardens started during the depression. During the war, they were called “Victory Gardens.” Even the first lady, Eleanor Roosevelt, had a garden.

I grew up in a garden; we grew tomatoes and zucchini. By age seven, I knew how to remove the suckers from the tomato vines, how to pull weeds and how to pinch off the multiple yellow blossoms. Blossoms had to be 4 inches from each other to get the largest fruits.

The people in Kirkwood, Missouri liked large tomatoes and zucchinis. When the depression started in 1929, the city fathers’ got together and declared that “No one in Kirkwood would go hungry.” They organized the town and, “though,” as my grandfather said, “the whole damn town of 18, 000 didn’t have $500 between them,” no one went hungry.

Next door to me was the lettuce lady. In her flowerpots, she grew all the lettuces, spinach, chards and greens. She used flowerpots to keep the snails and caterpillars off her plants. When we wanted to make sandwiches or a salad, my mother would send me off with a scissors to Mrs. Ball’s house and I would carefully snip off the outer leaves and bring them home to wash and put on the sandwich or in the salad. The shortest food chain in the world. I never saw lettuce in a ball ‘till I was a teenager and a supermarket came to town. What’s more, Mrs. Ball just loved my tomatoes and zucchini. I was so proud when I took them to her. They were my greatest accomplishments in my young life. Across the street was the onion lady. She grew every onion, chive, shallot and garlic known to mankind at the time. She sprouted them in her basement and people picked them up for their own gardens in the spring. Grandpa Van raised chickens and rabbits and had fruit trees - apples, apricots and a cherry tree that was in the back of the chicken yard. Every time a cherry fell off the tree, the chickens would race over to eat it. Gustof Franks had the two cows and we traded him eggs for milk and butter.

No one threw anything away. Table scraps and other uneaten food would go in the “slop” bucket. Neighbors came by and threw them to the chickens while they picked up a few eggs. The tops of carrots and lettuce scraps and greens went to the rabbits.

There was a trading system. A basket of apples could be traded for a skinned rabbit or a basket of grapes or apricots. An apple pie could be traded for milk or eggs. Another man grew corn. He had about 10 rows and he cracked some for my grandfather to feed to the chickens. He also gave it to the women who headed the canning committee. For his fresh corn, he could get canned peaches, applesauce, canned corn, potatoes or apricot syrup. Oh yes, we had potato people. They had raised beds and raised potatoes better than any I’ve ever tasted in my life. And there were peas, beans, and herbs. Everyone grew something, raised something and traded something. My other grandfather, although a natural stone quarryman, also kept beehives. A pint of honey went a long way in trade, as did a full honeycomb. Once every two months our butcher would take some meat or fish: pig, calf, chickens or rabbits into Saint Louis and trade for salt, flour, coffee, paraffin and soap.

And then there was hunting. The men went hunting on Saturday and whatever they shot, quail, rabbits, possum or deer, was eaten on Sunday. There was also the Merrimac and Mississippi river to fish in. Catfish, Sunfish, and Perch. They could be traded for canned fruits, vegetables, eggs, you name it.

I don’t think I ate an orange till I was almost twelve, after the war, and I marveled at this miraculous fruit, and then I was even more astounded with bananas. I was so used to this culture that after the war when I heard that the Greeks and the Russians and the Chinese were starving, I wondered, innocently why they didn’t plant gardens. Even today, when I hear that one in 8 children goes to school hungry, when I hear pleas for food donations for the poor, I wonder why we don’t have community gardens. Instead of talking on phones or watching TV or playing video games, couldn’t the children use their energy to weed the garden and harvest the food?

So, plant a garden and tell your neighbor to plant a garden and share. Mobile Home Parks and Apartment Complexes could create community gardens. Why waste the gas to have your tomatoes shipped in from California or Mexico when they can be grown just as easily in your backyard and taste much better picked off the vine.

They say dark days lie ahead for the economy. But, whatever happens, we don’t have to go hungry. We can feed ourselves. Come on my Beloved Country, let’s get organized. Let’s start digging. Let’s do something economically beneficial, wonderful, brilliant and powerful. Let’s all plant gardens.

I've Got a Mansion

Have you ever given thought to this song that many of us have sang before? It is not in our hymnal at church. It is one of my favorite hymns. I think those of us that are saved, we often get complacent with our life. We forget what lays ahead. We get so caught up in what is going on with our lives. We forget what is waiting for us.  We forget we have a Mansion Sublime!


I'm satisfied with just a cottage below
A little silver and a little gold
But in that city where the ransomed will shine
I want a gold one that's silver lined

I've got a mansion just over the hilltop
In that bright land where we'll never grow old
And some day yonder we will never more wander
But walk on streets that are purest gold

Though often tempted, tormented, and tested
And like the prophet my pillow's a stone
And though I find here no permanent dwelling
I know He'll give me a mansion my own

I've got a mansion just over the hilltop
In that bright land where we'll never grow old
And some day yonder we will never more wander
But walk on streets that are purest gold

Don't think me poor or deserted or lonely
I'm not discouraged I'm heaven bound
I'm but a pilgrim in search of the city
I want a mansion, a harp and a crown

I've got a mansion just over the hilltop
In that bright land where we'll never grow old
And some day yonder we will never more wander
But walk on streets that are purest gold

My Playlist

I love having that play list over there on the sidebar. It is a neat addition to my blog. I tend to turn it on and listen to it while I am working on school work. Sisters, I did turn off the automaticness of the player. I was on a blog the other day, that was playing music that , well. I just could NOT allow my ears to hear. It came on automatic and it was just not pleasing.  As I know one of my friends does not like it to be automatic, I changed it.  
It is still there if you liked it.

Dress for Beauty

I was reading a twitter's blog and was just loving it. Want to gander at it? I am all about modesty on this blog. I think this was tastefully written and gives wonderful examples. Even gave me food for thought.
IN Christ
Mrs. Bee

What is it that you do...

When you are unable to sleep? 
That is me, I am afraid. I can not sleep.  I thought I would jump on here and check out my bloglines and see what some of you are up to. 
I am now going to go and read my bible and do some praying. I do that always helps me relax and fall asleep. Nothing like reading in 1 Chronicles to get a girl to sleep.
Do not get me wrong, God's word is never boring, but, it does help relax a soul and I rather have the last thing on the brain, reading the Word, then turning on the box and watching some nasty commercial.  Who needs informercials anyways.

What do you do to help relax you if you can not sleep. I usually take Melatonin if I remember to take it early enough. But, taking it after you can not fall asleep at 1:20 am is not a smart thing to do. I will never get up to be with my children. I have a long day tomorrow. I have school, children school. I need to go do some laundry and I need to take my dog to the groomers. I also need to work on some memorization with the children. They need to memorize Psalms 139. They also have to memorize something for Sunday School. Not including our regular RU stuff. Busy Busy Busy little Bee's we are!

In Christ

What to Read

WOW, it has been a long and dreary day. I have told God to bring Spring. I hope He listens.. I know patience Mrs. Bee, Patience.......... Yea
Me? Patience? Sure.

I am so ready for Spring to come and then STAY. That seems to be the key word around here. Stay Spring Stay.
Oh yea, the title of this post. What to read.....
I am going to read "Created to be His Helpmeet" By Debi Pearl. Yea I have read this before. I am going to read it again. It was good to read before and I am sure it will be good to read once more. If anyone wants to join me, I am hoping to do a chapter by chapter review on here. That is the hope anyways. We shall see if I can stick with it. Anyone up to the challenge of reading it with me? When I post my comment, you can leave your comment in the comment section. Link your blog to your own if you choose.


I am thinking of going to wordpress.... Would you follow me? Why should I stay on blogger?


Take a look around and you will see many many blogs what say Monday Menu or something of the like.....
I am going to go Ahead and join that.
I have not made a menu since we moved. It has costed more money to eat then it should have. I hate it when things cost more then they should. Dontya?
So, without further ado.....
I give you.....

Monday:  Sloppy Joe's over Penne noodles.... Green Beans Recipe to follow....
Tuesday: Roasted Chicken, Baked Potato, mixed veggies
Wednesday: BLT's with Potato Chips and Corn.
Thursday: Sirloin Tip Roast with roasted potato's and broccoli
Friday: Eat out
Saturday: pancakes and sausage
Sunday: Fellowship Meal, Chicken Pot Pie ( dairy free ) We will just have pb and j when we get home that evening for lunch.

Our Sloppy Joe's is just basically taking ground beef cooked. Drain, in the same pan, dump ketchup and brown sugar to taste. You want enough ketchup to make a sauce.  I would guesstimate it to be 2 cups give or take some. 1/2 cup of brown sugar. It depends on your taste.
I just either put it over noodles or on some toasted buns.

1/4 cup Onion Chopped
1/2 tsp Garlic salt or powder.
2 tsp Chili Powder
dash cayenne pepper, optional
1 can of Cream of Mushroom or Chicken Soup
1 can of Tomato Soup
2 cans of Water
1/2 lb Spaghetti Noodles, broken into smaller pieces
6 slices of Velvetta or American Cheese

Brown ground beef in skillet with onion. Drain. Add garlic powder or salt, chili powder, cayenne pepper, cream of mushroom/chicken soup, tomato soup and 2 soup cans of water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and cover and summer for 10-15 minutes. 
Grease the bottom of a 9x13 pan or casserole and place uncooked noodles in.  Cover with sauce and stir. Cover and bake at 350 degree oven for 30-45 minutes or until spaghetti is cooked. Stir and place cheese slices on top. Cook uncovered until cheese is melted, 10-15 minutes longer.

Boots Revisited...

I decided, I did not really like the first photo of the boots I added here. So, I went back and edited them again...
Here are the 2 that I did today.

I rather like the above image, it just seems to pop out some to me. I like the first on this post as well. This one just looks sort of vintage to me.

My Husband!

My husband is my best friend. My friend Vicky encouraged me to write about my darling. My husband is a jack of all trades. He can do just about anything that he puts his mind to. We have a wonderful relationship. We work together to make  our marriage work. He has been home for a few months now due to unemployment. He helps me around the house and he helps me do the children's schooling. If someone were to call, he goes and helps them as well.  He loves to work and he hates to sit. 
I love my husband more then anything outside of my love affair with God. He loves God and lives to serve Him. He is my all and all and God gave him to me.
Thank you Vicky!

"Have You Been Born Again?"

You can know, beyond a shadow of a doubt that you are going to Heaven. God tells us so in His word. The question is, do you believe the bible to be true? Do you believe that God gave us His Word? Good works alone will not enter you into His kingdom. You must be born again. Below, you can know.

"Have You Been Born Again?"

Jesus said, "Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God" (John 3:3). Later He told his disciples, "In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you" (John 14:2). God's word assures us of heaven, but it also warns us of a place of torment. Revelation 20:15 says, "...whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire." God doesn't want anyone to spend eternity in hell. We are told that He is "...not willing that any should perish..." (II Peter 3:9).

The Apostle John writes, "These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God: that ye may know that ye have eternal life..." (I John 5:13). God has provided everything we need to spend eternity in heaven with Him!

The Bible tells us the story of Philip and the Ethiopian eunuch as he was reading about Jesus from the book of Isaiah, "And Philip ran thither to him, and heard him read the prophet Esaias, and said, Understand thou what thou readest?" And he said, "How can I, except some man should guide me?..." (Acts 8:30-31).

This booklet is designed to "...guide you into all truth..." (John 16:13). Our hope is that you will choose to be born again, so that you will see the kingdom of God.

God is Holy

God cannot tolerate sin because of His holiness - He is completely without any wrong. Many people only think of sin as a type of crime-something done against society. Sin is more than a crime, it is transgression against God. Even though you may be a very moral person, the Bible says that you are still a sinner. "As it is written, there is none righteous, no, not one..." (Romans 3:10). "Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned" (Romans 5:12).

Is it enough to try to keep the commandments? No. "For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all" (James 2:10).

What is the end result of sin? Spiritual death. "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 6:23).

God is Just

The Bible tells us that hell will be a terrible place. It will be filled with anguish and pain beyond any human's comprehension. Jesus told his disciples that "The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; and shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth." (Matthew 13:41-42).

What happens to a person without Christ after death? They will go to hell. "But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath powet to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him" (Luke 12:5)

What cleanses us from all sin? The shed blood of Jesus Christ. When John the Baptist first saw Jesus he proclaimed, "...Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world" (John 1:29). Jesus Christ was the final and ultimate sacrifice. The blood from His sacrifice doesn't cover our sin, it totally cleanses us of our sin. "But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin" (I John 1:7).

Is there any other payment for sin? No. "And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood there is not remission" (Hebrews 9:22).

Is there anything a person can do to pay for sin? No. "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast" (Ephesians 2:8-9).

Why did Jesus give His life? Because of His love for people. "For God sent not his Son into the World to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved" (John 3:17).

God is Love

Is Jesus the only way to salvation? Yes. "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me" (John 14:6).

Is God's love for everyone? Yes. "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life" (John 3:16).

What are God's conditions for having everlasting life? Believing in His Son. "He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him" (Joh 3:36).

Will Jesus ever turn someone away? No. "All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will no wise cast out" (John 6:37).

The Bible tells us, "Therefore if any many be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passew away; behold, all things are become new" (II Corinthians 5:17). When a person accepts Jesus Christ as his personal Savior he is born again. Spiritually, he is born from above and becomes a member of God's family. The Bible states, "But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on the his name" (John 1:12).

God's Path

What must a person need to do in order to be born again? Simply repent, believe, ask, and receive.

1) You must repent

To repent is to see your condition as God sees it and to express sorrow. In this case, you repent of your sin. "For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation..." (II Corinthians 7:10). You must admit to God that you are a sinner deserving of hell because of your sin.

Repentance is also a sincere turning away from sin to God. The Bible states "...that they should repent and turn to God, and do works meet for repentance" (Acts 26:20).

2) You must believe

Believing is more than just acknowledging that Jesus Christ exists. The Bible says "...the devils also believe, and tremble" (James 2:19). True believing is placing your complete confidence in Him and His ability to save you. "Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved" (Acts 4:12). You must believe with all your heart that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, and that He died on the cross to save you. "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness..." (Romans 10:9-10).

3) You must ask

Believing is more than just acknowledging that Jesus Christ exists. The Bible says "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved" (Romans 10:13). To call upon the Lord is to ask Jesus Christ to forgive your sins and save you from an eternity in hell. You must pray and ask for "...with the mouth confession is made unto salvation" (Romans 10:10).

4) You must receive

To receive something you must take it. Salvation is offered as a free gift from God. "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 6:23).

The Bible says, "For by grace are ye saved... it is the gift of God" (Ephesians 2:8). Like any gift, it is not yours until you receive it. "But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name" (John 1:12). You must pray and tell the Lord that you wish to receive His wonderful gift of eternal life!

The Time is Now!

You have come to the place in your life where you must make a decision. If you choose to accept the payment made by the Lord Jesus Christ for your sin, then you simply need to bow your head and pray. Tell Jesus, in your own words, that you are sorry for your sin and ask Him to forgive you and save you from hell. Tell Him you are willing to receive Him as your Lord and Savior. Let Him know you want to accept His gift of eternal life. Remember, Jesus Christ never turns anyone away!

"The Lord is...not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance" (II Peter 3:9)

We can know, if you have read thus far, let me give you an example. An analogy if you will. My pastor gave this one to Casey and he told me it as well. 

Take a chair that you are sitting on right now reading this, you knew that sitting down it was going to hold you and not collapse. Right? You did not have to think about it. You had faith that it would hold you up. So why not have the same faith in God and His word?

The Auto Upkeep Giveaway

This is a neat opportunity for you homeschooler's to get in on. Click on the following blog link and enter! I think it would be neat for our family to do! Would it be for you?


I talked about my daughter's Baptism. Here are the photo's from there.
I am also going to give a short testimony about it.

Casey thought she had gotten saved a couple of years ago. I really thought she was saved as well. She had a transformation from the old girl to a new girl. She was so different. She was more obedient to her father and I. She read her bible more, she was just good.
Then one Sunday morning, Valerie from church gave a small testimony about her salvation. She had thought she was saved. She had the knowledge. It was all in her head. She knew Christ, but she did not KNOW Christ in her heart. Casey realized that she shared the same testimony. Casey agonized over her salvation almost the entire week.  She was not 100% sure that if she were to die she would have a home in Heaven. She was scared. She talked with our Pastor, as well as the myself and her dad all week.
That Thursday evening after dinner, after she had talked with pastor and he gave her a great faith based analogy about a chair. She realized she too had just had the head knowledge of Christ. She had Him in her head, but not in her heart. That night, she and I read in our bibles and prayed. She accepted Christ in her heart.
     The next step after salvation is Baptism. Baptism is not salvation. Baptism will not save you. It is an obedience step that Christians should take after their salvation. Casey took that step. The water was not even room temp, it was chilly. As Pastor stated, it was clingy. LOL. 

The above photo's are from her Baptism, Valerie and Jessica also had their Baptisms. Jessica was the smart one, she went first. She got to dry off with a dry towel. Casey was last and had a wet one to dry off with. Only one of them brought a towel. Casey.

If you do not know Christ as your personal Savior, and want to know how to know him, leave a comment. If you are not 100% sure that you are going to heaven, again leave a comment.

Amazing Grace

Have you ever just sat down and listened to Amazing Grace? Click it on the sidebar and have a listen. I know many in my "realm" of friends may not like that I have Leaanna Rhymes singing it, however, listen to her sing it. I was so blessed to hear her sing it.  If we could just listen to it being sung like she sung it, we would be better for it. Better yet, read the words. Have you ever really read the words? Ponder each verse. 

John Newton (1725-1807)

Stanza 6 anon.

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.

T'was Grace that taught my heart to fear.
And Grace, my fears relieved.
How precious did that Grace appear
The hour I first believed.

Through many dangers, toils and snares
I have already come;
'Tis Grace that brought me safe thus far
and Grace will lead me home.

The Lord has promised good to me.
His word my hope secures.
He will my shield and portion be,
As long as life endures.

Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease,
I shall possess within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.

When we've been here ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun.
We've no less days to sing God's praise
Than when we've first begun.

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.

Didja read those words? Seriously?

On a Search and Other Things

I am on a search for a downloadable KJV (has to be the KJV) bible program for my computer. E-sword was my favorite, however that will just not work on my computer. See, I have a Mac. I knew when I got the thing, finding programs would not be an easy thing. I am great with that and all.... Of course till I went searching to find a downloadable bible program. Sure I can use websites, but just not the same if you know what I mean..... So if you have a Mac and have a desktop FREE bible thingy, leave me a comment!!

Now on to the other thing. I am a photoaholic, Feel sorry for my precious children, I tell ya.

 They bear the brunt of the addiction. I have said, I was not going to post photo's of my children. I LOVE to show off my precious gifts from God. They are so cheeky and cute!

 So, I am going break my own newish rule. I *heart* my children.  Who can blame me? God is awesome! 

They Think I am Strange

It is official, my children officially think I have lost my marbles. I was singing this song yesterday and they sure did not believe me, it is really a song.... So, what does a good and joyful mom do, Why, I google the song and get the lyrics. 

On Top of Spaghetti


On top of spaghetti, 
All covered with cheese,
I lost my poor meatball, 
When somebody sneezed.

It rolled off the table,
And on to the floor,
And then my poor meatball,
Rolled out of the door.

It rolled in the garden,
And under a bush,
And then my poor meatball,
Was nothing but mush.

The mush was as tasty
As tasty could be,
And then the next summer, 
It grew into a tree.

The tree was all covered,
All covered with moss,
And on it grew meatballs,
And tomato sauce.

So if you eat spaghetti,
All covered with cheese,
Hold on to your meatball,
Whenever you sneeze.

If you want to here it being sung, click on the link here.

My friends that know me well, know that I am in love with taking pictures.  My favorite thing to take photo's of are my children, and then anything outside my window goes. I really love taking photo's of any parks we enter into, wildlife, and scenic things such as sunsets and sun rises. I *heart* my camera.  I have a rebel XSi, or know outside of the US as the Canon 450d.
It takes amazing photo's when the handler (me) actually pays attention to what she is doing. 
If God created it, I want to photograph it. So, outside of photo's of my family, I will do my best to upload them here for you to enjoy or critic if you want! 
I do not have any for you today, I have a ton of my children, including the recent baptism of my daughter the Princess, but those will have to await! For those that read and did not know, my daughter recently realized she was not saved and so therefore she did get saved and therefore got baptized.

Well tis all

Mrs. Bee
