Where to Start

OK let me start with VBS. This was Laci's 1st time to go to VBS. And really be a part of it.It started last Monday and went Thur Friday Night it took her until Wednesday to get the hang of it and the really understand it. But she was great and listened to what was said. Sunday morning was the ending sermonizes that is were Sunday is a children's service and the kids that were at VBS get to sing there songs in front of the church. When it came time for them to sing Laci did not want to go up there so I gave her my book to my camera so she would just stand there with it. Until Jesse Dad said something or made a face at her and then she made a face at him and he got her attention off of the singing. Then Brayden another little boy wanted to sit with her and read the book and when he would sit next to her she would move over so he would move over and by the time you seen them they were almost to the end of the riser. After the service was over the children has actives to play and do over in Ryman Hall which is our fellowship hall. They had 3 blow up things 2 slides and 1 that you hit people and knock them down. Then there was Mendy the clown and see painted there face & a magic show. There was a train that Bub and Reba done Laci just had all kinds of fun. And what did she do the min the car took off we were not even out of the parking lot and she was out. Ok that is VBS.

I have stated selling my hair bows and my I spy bag at a friends store at the mall.
I am just stating this so hopefully it will do good. He has been after me for about a year to do something with my talents. But I have to say I have been afraid to do it because I did not think people would like them but however people do like it. Laci wares my hair bows all the time and people ask where I got them. So I thought maybe I should stat making them to sell. Here are a few pic to leave you with

Test Results

Well the test results are back and everything look's to be ok. I will share what has been going on before the accident of my grandparents my body has be acting strange to me. I have been bleeding off and on the the last month.I will go a week and off a week as the bleeding got worse I made appt and went to the doctor and she done a test it can back abnormal and I had to go back for another test the next went they went in and took some cells off. When she took them off she only found 3 and they were the size of a pin head. 2 days later the results came back and they were pre-cancer. She told me that it was a really low grade that I did not have to worry about it. I asked if the test would show a miscage and she told me no the reason I even asked is becouse a day after the fist vist I pass a large blood clot the size of my hand balled up. When this happed I was working and on my way home I called one of my cousins that is a nurse. I told her what happened and that is what she said it sounds like. Me I did not know what to think I have only had one preg. and it went fine. The doctor said that there was not anyway to tell if it had be a miscage that if it was it happened fast. So now you know more of what was going on and I think everyone of you that have been praying for me . Your friend Shanda

Burn's puls more

You people will think I am crazy but here goes. Has anyone out there ever heard of talking fire out of a burn. Krista you can not answer this question. I know that this is a verse in the bible but have never found it. I know where the verse is to stop the blood in the bible but the one for the burn I have never found if anyone that reads this knows where I can find it please let me know. Or just knows where this started at..

Ok I have found out that this is not ralley a verse in the bible. Still don't know where it came from do know that a woman can only teach it to a man and a man can only teach it to a woman. It can not be tought from woman to woman or man to man.
Know the reason I did not want Krista to answer this is becouse my Grandmother could do this she did not call it talking fire out of a burn but blowing fire out of a burn. The only reason I even brought up the subject is becouse my aunt asked me to write it down for her. See when Laci was 6 months old a iron fell on her little hand one night Jesse and I ran her to the calhoun E.R. On the way there I thought of my grandparents and thought that if they could pray that everything would be alright. They said they would and when they hung up my Dad called me to tell me the verse to blow the burn out my grandmother was on the other line telling him what to say and as the repeated it I would repeat after him. I dont know what it is but I know that it works when my cell cut off I just kept saying it over and over until we got ot the E.R about half way there Laci stoped crying and when we went in they took us right back and she was so calm the whole time. I guess I will never forget it my aunt Tiny asked me at for the verse and that is what brought up the whole thing of wanting to know where it is in the bible. I could not belive that is did not know it becouse of grandma doing it so much when I was little. She just said I always came to momma I thought she would be here for ever. My grandmother had a driect line to god that is why I all was called her and Grandpa to pray I asked my aunt who I could get to ask for pray now that they are gone. She just said that they are here with you just ask them. There has been some major problem with my body here lately and every night I have asked my grandparent to pray for me before I go to sleep. On Tuesday next week I have to go to the doctor to have some cells takeing out. For them to deturm what is going on. Please as you pray at night remember me and my family.

What can I say about Grandpa. The thing that comes to mind is what Trev said at the hospital. That he is tough as nails that he get hit by a truck and keeps going (Trev was just trying to get us to laugh). It worked. My grandfather cut carpet for rugs, mowed lawns, and collected can's for the extra money in the summer the rest of the time he worked full time at a high school as a janitor. I was all ways with the both of them to me they were my 2nd parents even though they were really my dads parents. I remember the summers my papaw would take the boys out to mow yards and the girls would stay in the car or go to the store and get drinks it was not until later that the girls would get to mow the lawns to. See there was five boys and 2 girls (in the beginning) and we were always together in the summer. Papaw had a huge table that he would cut the carpet on and he would take and cut the carpet into rug's then sell them to a guy out in Murray co the guy would put binding on them and sell them. All the grandkids would help we would have to climb on the table to spread the roll of carpet out and he would take the cutter and cut it one of us would have to take the cutter in the middle and bring it to the end for him. He would teach us to be very careful with it to where we would not cut our fingers off. I am not the best person in the world and I have a temper that I got from my mother. As a child I showed my temper all the time my grandparents lived in Dawnville when I was little. One time my papaw was getting on to me for something and I ran outside to get away from him and he came after me I jumped off the front potch and he stop and told me to come there I told him no that just made him madder and he came after me and chased me down and gave me a spanking man he could run. Just think about a 7 yr old running around and a 51 yr old can keep up with her (LOL).At the time it was not funny but to think back it is.He has all was mowed lawns as the grandkids grew up they did not come around much but he still done it. I lived with them before I got married and there was time when he would come and pick me up from work and have the mower and I know that it was a job so I would just ask where we had to mow and would go and help him. Even after me and Jesse got married I would ask him to bring a mower over to the house to where he had a mowing job and would pay him to bring the mower over even though I was the one that mowed but he would weed-eat for me. Because as he got older he was not able to mow lawns anymore and the people that he would mow for were all stating to die off.(the people he had mowed for forever).There is so much more but for now this will do.Please remember me and my family as you pray .

Joe (uncle that was with them) got to come home today. We went to see him and they called and said that he was going to be discharged today that we could take him home.There is going to have to be some work done at the house so he can move around. But it is good for him to be home.

Sometime you never know when you will see your last day. As most of you have been reading Krista's blog you know how my family was turned upside down in a week. My Grandparents have always been there for me and anyone in my family in there on way. The thing I miss the most is hearing my grandmothers voice just telling me that everything will be fine. I miss talking to her at my lunch and miss calling in the morning and hearing my grandfathers voice. I would ask what are you doing and he would say just holding the bed down or holding down the chair. On Thursday I had planned on going over that night to see them and take some pic's of them with Laci for her birthday. Laci turned 3 on that Wed. The last time I really talked to my Grandmother was on Tues.

There is many memories of my grandparents that I will always have. Like one time when my mom (Shelia) took me and my brothers to Kokomo to live. And it was snowing really bad I put on my coat and said that I am going back to Georgia to live with my mamaw , papaw and daddy. And here I went a little 3 year old girl out in the snow (did not get very far). When my mom called my mamaw that night she told me that it would be fine and that I need to be a good girl.
I just remember that it made me fill good. Just like when I use to stay the summer when I was little and later when I lived with them. I could not go to bed at night with out hearing my mamaw say "Good night sweet dreams and my God bless you" Later after I was married I would call my mamaw at night just for her to say those words to me and I would sleep fine at night as long as I heard them. About a month ago I started saying it with Laci at night. The first time my husband heard her say it he laughed and said it sounded like my grandmother.

My next few blogs will be about memories of my grandparents. For you to better understand what these people mean to me. Here is a pic that was taken last year.

What I have been up to

I have been very busy with work and everything but I have also be doing small projects.
1. I re-done my little girls room
2. Stated a quilt (yes a quilt)
3. painted my brother-in-law new baby girls room.

And 4. Mommy and Me aprons.

People say it is easy to quilt. It is so time consuming let me tell you . Cutting out everything and then when you get everything cut out you have to lay it out man it is just a bunch of work. But I like it. I have been looking at a lot of things to re-do Laci room and have been coming up with dead ends not knowing what to do. Well I found a quilt set that I like online and when I got it. It was a comforter set not a quilt like I thought. So I will post some pics and see what you all think. Of her room and of the quilt I am working on. As For the baby's room I don't have any pics of it. The room came out OK but nothing to write home about. The Aprons I will have pics of later.

Here is a list of things I still have to do.
1. I say bags for Frankie's Store

Curtains for living room
3. Dresses for Herbie and Shanda's BABY GIRL

4. Cutting out for another quilt

5. And Hair Bows.

6. More blogging for
Valerie Just six things but this is a lot.

Hard times

I know that a lot of people don't really know me or my family. But I am asking for prayer for us.
Every time I read something Krista post or will just send sometimes for me to read it is like she kind of know what is going on with me even with out me tell or saying anything to anyone.,The post you made about submission hit when I read it last night. For I know that is what a wife is suppose to do. It is a hard thing for me at times because I am a very hard head to say the least.
And I want you to hear what I have to say about things. My husband and I have been together for 9 yrs this year and is until we were married 3yrs that we were really married. In the beginning it was money we did not have any and there was so many bills. Well we still have a ton of bills and trying to work though them .The money is starting to come in a little easier to where we can pay things on time and get things payed up a little. But in the last year or so it is like our marriage is back to the way it was in the beginning again and we have been at the point that I just want to give up. We don't argue about the money. We fight about little things about me having to work late now and me not doing things around the house like i use to, not spending time with him, when he gets home it is ok for him to take a nap to relax him but it is not ok for me to sew,read of something that I like to do to relax a little. And so on and so on. We know how to fake it well but when you fight in front of you child and they tell your In-laws then your in-laws say your child told on you on the way home what do you say to that. We try not to fight in front of or child but at time's our temper get in the way and we do.I have a frame with a poem we got from a friend at or wedding. It says

Marriage Takes Three
Marriage takes three to be complete;
It's not enough for two to meet.
They must be united in love
By love's creator; God above.
Then their love will be firm and strong;
Able to last when things go wrong,
Because they've felt God's love and know
He's always there, He'll never go.
And they have both loved Him in kind
With all the heart and soul and mind;
And in that love they've found the way
To love each other every day.
A marriage that follows God's plan
Takes more than a woman and man.
It needs a oneness that can be
Only from Christ,
Marriage takes three.
This frame is next to my bed to where when I get up I see it. I would like to say if you are reading this please keep my family in your prayers and thank you for listen to my thoughts.
