Friday would have been the day Jesus was crucified on the cross. On the third day... what an awesome day it was when our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ rose from the dead. It will be another awesome day when He returns. Let's not forget why we celebrate Easter. "Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour when we think not." Luke 12:40.
First let me say hello to all my blogging friends. It's been so long since my last post I don't know hardly how to begin.
It has been a hard last 5 months. In October of last year my husband found a knot on the right side of his neck and after several test it was determined that it was cancer. They also found a spot on the backside of his left lung. He went thru radiation and chemo for about 3 1/2 months for the place on his neck. They ran some more test and said his neck looked good. We were going to wait about 3 weeks and then start treatment on the lung. He was feeling much better, but you know that God is in control and he said it was time for him to come home. I lost him on Friday morning, March 23rd. The doctors said it was not the cancer that took him, but that his heart was so weak from all the treatments that it just couldn't keep up with his body. I'm thankful for one thing, he didn't lay and suffer for a long time with cancer. I miss him everyday so much, but he is in a much better place and we will meet again one day.
I live in Alabama with my husband, 2 cats,3 dogs and a tank full of fish. We've been married 11 wonderful years. We have 3 grown children between us and 5 grandchildren. We live a simple life. We love going camping when we have the time. I love crafting, making cards using rubber stamps and the Cricut Expression, scrapbooking, yard sales and collecting things. I worked for a local newspaper until the end of October,2009 when I lost my job. I had been there for almost 41 years. So now what do you do, you either start over somewhere else or just retire and I choose to try the retired route. I'm sure it will be fun not having to go to work everyday with all the stress. This will be my first summer at home in a long time but I'm sure I can find plenty to do. We are both christians and attend a wonderful church.We put God first and everything else just falls into place. We are truly blessed.
