Life Around Here...

Let me introduce you to the.....

One Baby Wrecking Machine ....(OBWM)
(better know as Sky=)

Yeah, don't let this sweet face fool ya......there is a wrecking machine just waiting to get out!!! =)

Well what is this? Hey Petrii that is a weird place for your bench.
Um, why yes I know. You see OBWM pulls the cords out of the TV if said bench is not there......

Oh I see!!

Hey Petrii, what's with the new way your doing your window scarf?

Why yes it is the latest in OBWM decor =)

Other wise OBWM is trying to tear down said window scarf.

Oh I see!!!

Are you talking about this little cutie Scoot?

This would be the one.....

How cute is he? We have SOOOOO much fun with him. He is kind of sick right now with a cold, but he is still such a happy baby......we LOVE being Grandparents!!!!!


Normally by this time in the course of the two weeks that we work on a particular Scripture in the Scripture Memorization Team I have mine memorized and am working on Scrapbooking my page and really working on the meaning and nuiances of that particular Scripture, but this time has been a little different. I have been so busy that I haven't had my usual routine in place.

So about the middle of the week I had been really trying to get it memorized and in my heart, but it just wasn't working. I even had been doubting myself; wondering if I'd really heard God right and was this the Scripture for this time. Well, He assured me it was and NOT to change it. So I left it open on the back of my chair and I'd read it periodically and just started really trusting God for it. Now it still wasn't happening, and can I just say it is so in my personality to fret over it, but I just kept reminding myself that this was what God wanted me to memorize, so I would be faithful.

Well, Thursday morning I woke up quoting the Scripture....not even kidding. I was so excited!!! I just kept quoting it over and over. And believe me prior to that I didn't have it yet. So since then I have just been quoting that Scripture and I even got to share with a dear sister in Christ my experience and I could tell that it was a boost to her weary Spirit. His Word is so and active....can I get an Amen??!!!

I love the Word of God!!!!!


On another note, we got some very sad news yesterday.

Let me back up...

My husband goes to one doctor. He doesn't and hasn't ever shopped around (so to speak). He found a doc he liked early on and this is the doc he has always gone his whole adult life.

Well we got news yesterday that his beloved Dr. Campbell died while on vacation in Mexico with his wife and boys. He was stung by a jellyfish. Dr. Campbell was about 50 years old and a much loved member of our local community (about 15 mins from here). He will be GREATLY missed by my husband. They were not just doc and patient, but Dr. Campbell was always interested in Dick, not just in his health, but also his life. He was a rare gem........and will be greatly missed. Please remember his family both personal and professional, this will be very difficult on all.


  1. that is so sad about your husbands doctor.... you never know when its your time, do you?

    And oh my - I had to laugh at the pictures... because of our steps, we would have like 5 totes stacked on each other so kiddos couldnt get to the stairs... the things you do for safety :-)

  2. I remember the days of "baby-proofing" the house. I hadn't even thought that I'll have to do that again when I'm blessed with grandbabies. That little Sky looks like he'd keep you on your toes. What a cutie!

    AMEN - God's Word is alive! Thanks for your testimony.

    I'm so sorry about Dick's doctor. I didn't realize you could die from a jelly-fish sting. That is so sad.

  4. I have to say that is the cutest little wrecking machine I have ever seen! Grandchildren are such a blessing, aren't they?

    How sad to hear about Dick's doctor! I know that he will be greatly missed by all of his patients.

    I think it was just awesome how you not only woke up quoting that scripture, but God also gave you an opportunity to wield your Sword! Glad you were obedient to stick with the verse the Holy Spirit had laid on your heart!

    Hope you have had a great weekend and I'm praying special blessings on you this week!

    Love you, sweet friend!

  5. That's so sad about your husband's doctor.

    The pictures of the OBWM, however, were thoroughly charming!


  6. What a cute little scoot! I know y'all have fun with him around.

    So sorry to hear about the doctor. Man, what a tragic situation.

    Hope you have a great week!
