The greatest gift from God is Love.

Okay if you haven't seen this go rent it TODAY! It is a great movie or you could buy it for your Valentine. (I didn't get paid for this ad I just really loved the movie.)
I was pleasantly surprised last night when I came home to a beautiful bouquet of red roses, thoughtful Valentines and Birthday cards from friends and family, gifts and my loving husband. I am so blessed and I thank God for my family and friends everyday. I want to take this time to thank everyone including my wonderful family for taking the time to celebrate with me another year. Last year was a year that I will never forget...(in so many ways). God Blessed our family with a gift that is so special and he is so good! Nolan was brought into our lives, filling our hearts even more with God's love. My brother Aaron was very sick 1 year ago and I thank God that he is able to be here with us today. I pray that God will continue to be with our family always. We need our family, we need our friends and we need our lovers. God knows love he created it for us, he know how hard it can be at times and he knows how wonderful it can be too! I am going to do my best this year to celebrate the love that God has given to us that we take for granted some times. Thank you God. 1 Corinthians 13:1-8a and 13 If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing. Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails....And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. (NIV) God Bless all of you and your Valentines on this special day. Dana

Some Wintery White...

My Crystal Clear Kitchen View.
Living in White Retiring in White
The warmth of this White.
Relaxing in White.
Retreat in White.
Eating in White.
Ditto... Yumm.
My home is not White by any means. I have Red, Yellow, Green, Blue..... I think every color accept WHITE. My maiden name is White and I love the feel of White...
The White Snow outside is quickly disappearing into a muddy mess. I am missing our white snow already, so I just thought I would give you all a taste of the White that I am now missing.
Many Blessings of whatever color you so desire!
God Bless us all!

New Living in the New Year!

The Dining Room
is now located near the Front Entry, I never liked the living room
being so close to the front door. This change is going to take time to get used to but for now it works for our family.
Our Living Room
is now located right off the kitchen where the Dining Room use to reside. I have moved it around about 6 times and this is the arrangement that is the most comfortable. Nolie loves it! Fresh Tulips!!!
Work Space!
A Great spot for Reading!
Blake loves to read... I am so glad because I never liked to read as a child. I hope you have enjoyed your tour of our new living spaces. I am exhausted after a long couple of weeks of moving furniture but it was all worth it. I love our home because it really works for our family.
Thank you God for giving us our beautiful home.
Thank you Doug for allowing me to be creative with our home
in which you provide for our family.
God Bless you!
Dana
