"I have heard some say that the need is not the call. I do not understand that. An obvious need is a call in any branch of human life. The Good Samaritan did not need a special Bible verse miraculously shining upon him to indicate that it was God's will he help the poor fellow who had fallen among thieves. Where common sense clearly points out a duty, that is the voice of God." Isobel Kuhn.

Over the past year I have become a coupon fanatic, thanks to my thrifty neighbor who has taught me! I cannot tell you how much money I have saved and how many items I actually get for free. for example, I shopped today at Harris Teeter and spent $12, but SAVED $16.00! I got 5 bottles of Kraft BBQ sauce (buy 2, get 3 free), used coupons and got each bottle for $0.35!! I got 5 bags of shredded cheese for $4.36 TOTAL...the list goes on and on. Harris Teeter and Lowe's Foods DOUBLE coupons up to and including $0.99 EVERYDAY! Shop using the coupons combined with their weekly specials and you will be amazed at what you save! You can also visit a website called THE GROCERY GAME or COUPON MOM to get a layout of where to shop, what coupons to use and how much you will actually spend. You can also print your coupons from these sites. With this economy and being a stay at home mom, what a blessing! Every time I check out the check out people are amazed. Why not use coupons? They are FREE money!

Happy Mother's day to all of the wonderful ladies out there that are blessed to be called "Mom". I am thankful for my mom for so many reasons. She has always encouraged me, complimented me, and continues to do so. I am grateful for her and what I have learned from her. I am also blessed to be honored as a MOM now as well to our wonderful son! It is a blessing and a great challenge to hold the title of "mom". HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!

So I am watching the news and the evaluation of the techniques used for suspected terrorists, which they are calling torture. The techniques included water boarding, (which is pouring a pitcher of water or running a hose over someone's face to simulate drowning), sleep deprivation for up to 11 days, face slapping with fingers, and being confined in a small room with an insect that is not capable of killing you. Now, I find it quite interesting that they are considering prosecuting the men that used these tactics (which were all legal) on suspected terrorists from 911. It is more than ironic for me to hear this news and how disheartened Obama is by the tactics used on the terrorists when he is NOT disheartened by placing infants in a room to die or by partial birth abortion, or any form of abortion for that matter. None of the tactics used on the suspected terrorists caused physical harm, death, or psychological damage, but abortion KILLS innocent babies. Food for thought.....

We had a wonderful Easter weekend! Egg Hunts, candy, bunny cake and we celebrated Jennifer's 32nd B-day. This year was a great time of pondering what Jesus Christ did for us 2000 years ago. It is so amazing to serve a HOLY GOD who holds the universe in His hands. What amazing love to send His only Son to die and be resurrected so that we may have life in Him. We cannot understand this love as humans, but I thank Him for it...today and everyday! Celebrate Him who is worthy! ISAIAH 53----READ IT!
