These people are the family that you choose for yourself.
My friend, Donna, made this nativity for me. Last year I wanted to purchase one at their church bazaar and another lady got the last one. So this year Donna called me up to give me first pick!! Donna and husband, Mike, have a house at the beach in Jacksonville, FL. She and her husband enjoy picking up pieces of wood that wash up on shore. They use them to make various crafts. Donna molds the people in the manger scene from clay! Didn't she do a great job? Even the little lamb is so sweet. And the church bazaar is this Friday! Marvin is taking the day off so he will drive Miss Arlene to the bazaar and to the store.:) I have been calling him Hoke. ( If you like the movie Driving Miss Daisy, you will get my drift.) Well He is my best friend...just like Miss Daisy assured Hoke.
There is a 70% chance for rain in north Georgia on Saturday according to one of my Facebook Friends. Lets all pray for that rain to come and help with those fires. The Rough Ridge Fire is the one that is near my hometown. It has burned 20,000 acres and is still just minimally contained. This is in the Cohutta Wilderness and thankfully no homes have been threatened at this point. As far as I know there have been no deaths or injuries among the fire fighters.
Our little friend , Kayleigh met her Savior yesterday after a six month struggle with DIPG brain tumor. Her funeral will be Friday afternoon. Please pray for this family as they grieve their loss but celebrate Kayleigh's healing in heaven. Kayleigh's story has reached many people and I am sure her funeral will be standing room only.
I am taking it easy again today. I am feeling much better but I am not going to let that make me go crazy doing all the things I think I can do. Slow and Easy wins the race.
