I've noticed a few things lately...it seems if a couple doesn't "HAVE" kids...they tend to NOT want kids around. I can understand this as MOST peoples children aren't well behaved or they don't have good control over their kids. I don't know about you but I'm DEFIANTLY noticing in our society that kids are treated more like a burden than a "Gift" from God. I grew up in the Assembly of God arena and kids went to EVERYTHING...I don't think there was an event at church that didn't involve the kids...this day and age you never know "WHAT" you can take your kids to...there's ages set on teas, game nights, a "no your kids aren't invited" to showers and weddings...gee wiz! The word of God says that children are a gift from God and a blessing...what an unfortunate time to be a kid in our society!!!

This is the ONE thing my mom wanted before she died - this will be the second time in my life the other time was when we had Heather dedicated. I'm so excited!!! God is SO good!!! (Just found out that my brother is coming to church on Sunday too...WOW!!!)

Have you ever missed it? I mean, when the Lord spoke to you ever so quickly to help someone - have you ever reasoned it away? Unfortunately, I have. The other night we went to the Dollar Tree and I went through the store and got what I needed (only spent $2 + tax...not bad for a Dollar Tree trip :-). I was headed out the door when something else caught my eye...remembering that Easter is in a week...I thought I'd better pick something up for that since I didn't have any kids with me (Larry & Heather were in the car eating DQ...YUM :-) I grabbed the items that I needed and got in line behind a lady with an ADORABLE little girl. The lady loaded her items on the counter and was almost done placing them up there when she asked the cashier what her total was so far...it was something like $12 - the lady continued placing the rest of her items on the counter and the little girl kept asking her for a quarter...the cashier just finished and said that will be $19.52 and the lady to…
