This poem was send to me from our cousin in Oregon, I just had to post it. **** This poem gives a person hope for tomorrow. Twas' 11 days before Christmas, around 9:38 when 20 beautiful children stormed through heaven's gate. Their smiles were contagious, their laughter filled the air. They could hardly believe all the beauty they saw there. They were filled with such joy, they didn't know what to say. They remembered nothing of what had happened earlier that day. "Where are we?" asked a little girl, as quiet as a mouse. "This is heaven." declared a small boy. "We're spending Christmas at God's house." When what to their wondering eyes did appear, but Jesus, their savior, the children gathered near. He looked at them and smiled, and they smiled just the same. Then He opened His arms and He called them by name. And in that moment was joy, that only heaven can bring, those children all flew into the arms of their King. And as they lingered in the warmth of His embrace, one small girl turned and looked at Jesus' face. And as if He could read all the questions she had He gently whispered to her, "I'll take care of mom and dad." Then He looked down on earth, the world far below He saw all of the hurt, the sorrow, and woe. Then He closed His eyes and He outstretched His hand, "Let My power and presence re-enter this land!" "May this country be delivered from the hands of fools" "I'm taking back my nation. I'm taking back my schools!" Then He and the children stood up without a sound. "Come now my children, let me show you around." Excitement filled the space, some skipped and some ran. All displaying enthusiasm that only a small child can. And I heard Him proclaim as He walked out of sight, "In the midst of this darkness, I AM STILL THE LIGHT." Written by a Gentleman in Southern PA

Hello Everyone, Yesterday we had a horrible thing happen in Connecticut where a shooting happened in an elementary school. 20 innocent children were killed along with 6 adults. We are all very saddened by this and I only chose to post my nativity scene of little children. These sweet little children are little angels in heaven now. Hope 2013 is a much better year and the parents and family of all these little children heal from this horrific experience. Please visit other pretty pinks via my link on the side bar.

Hello Friends, Here we are in the middle of the week and here in CA we are expecting rain and more rain or so they said, time will tell. I received some forwards from a friend in Oregon and had to share this one photo with all of you. I just thought this was so adorable, an expression of love. It tells us to love one another and not to forget our troops and the folks back east that have had so many problems and some are still without power.

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I would like to share with you Redwood State Park up in Monterey, CA. My granddaughter was given a promotion at her job and had to move up there. She joined a hiking group and here are some of the pictures I received. The hike was in Boulder Creek which is about 1 1/2 hours from Monterey.

Happy Pink Saturday to all...Hope all of you are well and enjoying the lovely weather we are having, well here in CA anyway. Our prayers are with all the folks in New York, New Jersey and surrounding places. My daughters mother-n-law was very close but she is alright. Just a few streets down they were not so lucky. At Pinterest found this Autumn Door that I thought would be nice for today's post. It's autumn yet the leaves look pink.

Hello dear friends, Today for Pink Saturday we are having Cancer Awareness since October is Cancer Awareness Month. Please click on my side bar for Beverly's Pink Saturday to see all the other pinks and more, thank you Beverly. This post is in memory of my cousin Maria who died of Breast Cancer only a few weeks ago and only nine months after she found out she had this awful disease. Her and my cousin Daniel were such a loving couple, always together and helping each other out. They raised their family and were enjoying grandchildren. They married young and she was in her early 50's. She loved birds and had many cages plus a walk in cage full of birds.

Hello Dear Friends, I haven't posted in a couple of weeks, you all know about the death in our family, so the way that I deal with situations like this is that I get involved in something major here in our home. Therefore, I decided to paint the dining room and kitchen. Dining room walls are done but not the wood work when that is done I will move on to the kitchen. It is not a large one so should go fast for now work in progress as follows... Here are my paint cans, the color was like a beige, not so easy to cover with one coat, so had to do two coats now it's off white.
