I found out only yesterday that a dear, sweet longtime friend had gone in for a routine test, and they found a mass near his kidney. This man's dear sister had suffered with cancer for many years before going home to glory at an early age....and so this was a real blow for them to discover this.
I heard from him this evening that he got the results of the MRI that they did to further explore this mass, and it looks like it is just a cyst that they will just keep an eye on.
As soon as I heard he had this mass, I was seriously taking this request before the Lord and laying it at His feet.
My family and I have been going to a revival at a nearby church this week to hear our friend Evangelist Tom Palmer speak. One of the nights he spoke on prayer. This was an excellent message for me, as it really reminded me of Who I was praying to--and what HE was capable of.
I just want to truly thank the Lord tonight for answering my prayers in such a wonderful way.
He's so awesome!

Psalm 111:10; Proverbs 1:7 “7The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction. Proverbs 2:6, 9:10 6For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.

Here we are above-in front of the theatre before the production.
On our way to the theatre, we drove through Amish country, where I buy alot of my staples. We stopped at one of my favorite stores, and this buggy was parked next to us. It was hysterical because inside of the buggy hung this key chain with fuzzy feather's on it...See the fuzzy keychain? Hee hee hee!
Well, if that didn't make you smile....the triangle/hazard thing on the back had a big Cabela's sign on it! LOL
It was such a fun day! Another great memory!
Anyone who knows me, knows I am a great bird lover/watcher! This was a thrill! My lovely daughter snapped the pictures of them.

Years I spent in vanity and pride,
By God's Word at last my sin I learned;
Now I've given to Jesus everything,
Oh, the love that drew salvation's plan!

Maddie is a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, and they have problem with Mitral Valve Disease. Hers has progressed, and she collapsed last night, flailing and gasping for breath.
We know her time is limited, and it makes us so, so, sad.
But oh the many happy memories, and happy hours we have spent with this loveable, loyal companion! She has been a great joy to us, and we hope that she doesn't suffer with this. That when the time comes, she will just pass quietly in her sleep.
She has been the best of the best! Here are some pictures of her for those of you who haven't had the pleasure of knowing her. I hope some of her sparkling personality peeks out of these pictures and you can glimpse a bit of her spirit!

This is a close up of the creeping thyme (my daughter's). I am secretly envious of this one!
The one pictured above is mine. It has garlic chives, parsley, and rosemary. I cook with these and just run outside the back door and snip off what I need!
In the close up of my rosemary above, you can see it is not only surviving--it's blooming!
These pansies are among the survivors not in pots, these are in my front flower bed. A gift from my dear friend Lisa! Thanks Lisa!
This is some parsley I have growing in my front flowerbed. Sometimes I run out the front door and snip this for spaghetti sauce or something...
And, last but not least, my daffodils are coming up.
Hope these pictures put you in the mood for Spring!

Well, tomorrow is my true love's birthday! I made his cake today and we did a mini-celebration as tomorrow we will be busy with church--although we are going out to eat after church--that's what he wanted for his b-day. Eat at Cracker Barrel...(which is nice because it's not far from the church. :0)
And so, another year will begin in his life. My prayer for him is that it would be a happy year, full of wonderful memories! That God would find him faithful, and that we could show him how much he is loved and appreciated. He is one special man!
Happy Birthday Dear!
(Above is the 2 of us at Christmas--below is the birthday boy when he was 9 months)
