Last week Thursday one of our best friends died. He was born on Christmas Day 1997. Puffy was my brothers dog and best friend for 12 years. He was a great dog. And I mean a GREAT dog! Puff was a pit bull who would never hurt a fly. He might have licked a few people to death though if they had let him. His tail would wag so hard it almost felt like a whip. He would whimper and whine when you petted him just to let you know that he was enjoying it. He had a methodical way that he would tear apart a new tennis ball and he loved nothing more than being completely covered in warm blankets.
He is being sadly missed by all of us right now. But God heals up our hurts and wounds eventually. 2 Corinthians 1:3-4
"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion, and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God."
until then, we wait.
Madison said that Puff was keeping her grandparents company in Heaven. I believe that she is right. I think dogs do go to heaven. And I look forward to seeing Puffy again some day:)

Romans 8

What shall separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord? Shall trouble or persecution or heartache or famine or danger or nakedness or sword? No, I tell you in all these things we are more than conquorers though him who loves us.

taken from Romans chapter 8. This is our verse of the day from

Everyday i am amazed at the irony of this website. Nothing is separating me from God's love. Not all the crap that is going on right now. Not all the doubt. Not all the worry. Nothing.

It will all work out.

If you are of the praying persuasion...................

If you are of the praying persuasion, I would greatly appreciate prayer for wisdom right now. I know that When we ask for it, God promises that he will give it. I need it.
We have some very life altering decisions to make quite quickly and I can use all the help I can get. No need to bore you with details. God will know what you are referencing to.
Thank you,

todays message..............for everyday

"If anyone boasts "I love God," and goes right on hating his brother or sister, thinking nothing of it, he is a liar. If he won't love the person he can see, how can he love the God he can't see? The command we have from Christ is blunt: Loving God includes loving people. You've got to love both."--1John 4:20-21

So all of the verses and things I have been reading and challenged with lately are about just loving. Loving when I don't agree. Loving when I want to pinch someone. Loving when I am so mad I could spit. Loving. I feel like I have to keep learning this one over and over. But this time, it is a different people that I am having trouble loving. It is the Christians.

I get so mad at the hypocrisy that I fail to see that i am filled with the very thing that I am upset with.

I am going to keep focusing on this. Speak to me Lord, for your Child is here, listening, speak to me Lord for you child is here, waiting on you.........................i love that song:)

Lots of learning.................

A rambling of some sort...............
So, there has been lots to learn here in Whoville. Much to do. Much to say. Much to think about. Where do I start?
I have been focusing on being cool water. I think that we have to just feel like we are refreshing cool water that we can lap on people. It is very hard being in retail. Dealing with people all day. Their demands, wants, needs. But the funny thing is, if we focus on not being selfish, it really isn't that hard. Yes, there are some real stinkers out there. But not all of them are bad. I believe that I have said this before:)
to make a long story short, I am working on being kind and trying to have a sincere desire to serve.
Pray for me............................
