bigger than four!

Jesus listens when you pray!

He hears each & every word you say.

That’s how we know

He is with you –

as you reach five years old today!

HIP-HIP-HOORAY!!!

Lots more giggles we’ll be adding to another year of celebrating Y-O-U!

Oma sends kisses,

Gompy sends hugs,

both of us send… five big years of love!

hugs n’ blessings grand-daughter, dear!

just act normal. that alone looks strange.

it’s the monday giggles…

I think it all began when I first heard about Cauliflower Pizza Crust.

I thought it was the craziest thing I’d ever heard of!

But now, (everyday) when I receive the latest News update, Cauliflower pizza is feeling more normal to me than the current Cra-Cra running amuck in the World.

I am NOT trying to burst anyone’s bubble because...

“The only difference between your crazy and my crazy is

you just don’t think you’re crazy.”

Steve Maraboli


Bubbles bubbles everywhere!

Pop! Pop! Pop!

*A normal truth known by every pet owner.

hugs n’ blessings to all the pet owners out there hanging on to their sanity by the hair of their pet!

I do pray this little sharing brings a tiny giggle to your Soul.

And in it, may you claim the calm sense of knowing WHERE our peace can be found

even if for only a little while….

If you were a member of my parish it would be ingrained in your psyche “No bible, no breakfast! No bible, no bed!” Our parish priest, Father Larry Richards, reminds his flock of followers of this importance perpetually! (first giggle.) He frequently bellows an enthusiastic reminder, “Before our feet hit the floor in the morning we should open the Word of God with steadfast faith, “Speak to me your Word, O Lord!” Then allow the Bible to be opened and our eyes to be led toward the Scripture God intends for us this day. And the same in reverse order upon returning to bed in the evening, to apply the Word of God as a balm on our hearts at the close of every day.” I am paraphrasing of course, also I am not jumping up & down in typical Father Larry fashion, but I am sure you get the clear picture! (second giggle.)
