36 Years old in Christ

Today is my spiritual birthday I was saved June 25, 1972 36 years ago. WOW! I am so grateful that my dad & grandfather shared Christ with me when I was young. It's been an amazing road to travel with many ups and some downs but worth every trial. I am also so grateful that God listened to the heart of a 9 year old child. How far I have come over the years but oh how much further I need to go. So Lord as I strive daily to become a Proverbs 31 woman forgive me when I fail and please pick me back up and help me to never give up. Even after 36 years your grace still amazes me.

How many stuffed toys can you get in bed with you?

Another Josh moment

Yes the boy fell asleep on the couch while watching Camp Rock tonight and this is how I found him. I wonder what's going through his mind? Is he thinking or planning his next move. He's funny even when he is asleep.
