Twelve Years Ago This Month

A million times we've needed you
A million times we've cried.
If love alone could have saved you,
You never would have died.
In life, we loved you dear,
In death we love you still.
In our hearts you hold a place
No one will ever fill.
It broke our hearts to lose you
But you didn't go alone,
For a part of us went with you
The day God took you home.
God saw you getting tired
And getting better was not to be.
So He put His loving arms around you
And whispered, "come with Me."
With tear-filled eyes we watched you,
Suffer and fade away.
Although we loved you deeply
We could not make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating,
Hard working hands at rest.
God broke our hearts to prove us
He only takes the best.
We thought of you with love today
But that is nothing new.
We thought about you yesterday
And the day before that too.
We think of you in silence,
We often speak your name.
All we have now are memories
And your picture in a frame.
Your memory is our keepsake
With which we will never part.
God has you in his keeping-
We have you in our hearts.
A million times we have missed you
A million times we have cried.
If love alone could have saved you
Then you never would have died.
It broke our hearts to lose you
But you didn't go alone.
For a part of us went with you
The day God took you home.

In Memory of my Dad

I wrote this in 1998 by taking several different things that I found in news papers and putting them together.

Bambi Gets Lost

The simplest things really do make me happy!! When my girls were little I use to read to them every night and one of their favorite books was Bambi. I thought I had saved it but I never could find it and then about three weeks ago I saw what I thought was a book just like it on Maxine's book shelf. Wouldn't you know it......It was THE book....not mine but one exactly like mine that I can't find and Maxine said I could have it!! The minute I started reading it to Bryson, it was like I don't know all these special feelings came back!!! So thank you so very much Maxine for giving me Bambi Gets Lost!!!!!!

Look What Our New Camera Can Do

Yesterday my husband came home and surprise me (he said Us) with a new camera!! Look what it can do!!! This "bad bird was caught in the act" eating the grass seed my husband put down last weekend. The distance was about 60 feet. I thought this was awesome until later on that night he came it with the Moon Picture. So how far away do you think this was?
Gerald said to be sure to enlarge it so you can see the detailed craters on the top. Also, check out the right side.....looks like a navel orange.
