…and in breaking news…

Don’t you just hate it when your favorite show is interrupted with that statement?  I know some people who absolutely hate it when that phrase comes up.  My son, Matthew, for instance has not been pleased with March Madness this year.  His number one favorite show is “The Big Bang Theory” which comes on Thursday nights.  Well, guess what show was pre-empted for the NCAA basketball tournament this past week?  Yep…also, tonight, “The Amazing Race” has been delayed due to basketball games earlier in the day.  Right now, Matt is about to go bonkers waiting for “60 Minutes” to finish so he can see how the “country boys” do tonight on TAR.  Isn’t it funny how we all seem to find a favorite team or person to cheer for whether it’s basketball, reality shows, or real life?

The boys haven’t had such a fun Spring Break this year.  Scott is so far behind on his schoolwork, he may have to go to summer school this year.  Matthew is behind also, but he isn’t as far behind as Scott is.  Therefore, all Spring Break, they’ve had to work on school work instead of just vegging out in front of the TV or playing video games.  Omri looked at Jason and me every night when we got home as if to say, “Why aren’t they going to school this week?”  I’m sure he’s going to miss them tomorrow when they go back to school.  Omri went to Scott’s doctor’s appointment with us Friday.  Matthew was so happy and proud to show off his special dog.  Omri got to meet all the staff at the allergists’ and some of my co-workers when they went to lunch.  He absolutely LOVES an audience.  He did ALL his tricks and just gave his doggie grin to everyone he met.  Smile


Can you say  Omri’s getting to be one spoiled dog???

Korea to get the food they so desperately need.  This is a situation that has really spoken to my heart.  I really don’t know what I can do as one person, but if as a group of believers, we can band together and pray for the leaders of N. Korea, maybe their citizens will get the physical nourishment they need.  I also believe that we can’t reach others for Jesus as he wants if they don’t understand how much we care about their physical well-being as much as their spiritual well-being.  It’s hard to focus on the things of the spirit if our physical needs aren’t being met adequately.

I recently started reading a book called “What Women Want: The Life You Crave and How God Satisfies” by Lisa T. Bergren and Rebecca Price.  The picture came from so please forgive me for the “Look Inside”






What Women Want: The Life You Crave and How God Satisfies  I must say, this book should be enlightening in more ways than one.  I don’t have a ton of time to read, but I love to do it.  Give me anything to read & I am SO very happy!  I will read anything from inspirational novels to books like this one to romance novels.  (That’s my dirty little secret, I guess.  I love to read romance novels…I know they’re terribly unrealistic, but they allow me to escape from reality briefly.)  How about you?  What do you like to read when you get time?
