I Have a Secret!!!

I was given a secret and was told I had to wait for two days before I could tell anyone. Well, today is the third day and I can finely let it out!

I'M GOING TO BE AN AUNT AGAIN!!!!!! My oldest brother's wife is about 6 wk. pregnant and estimates that she is due around the end of January or beginning of February. When this new little one is born I will have a 3 yr. old nephew (Isaiah), an almost 3 nephew (Patrick), and two 1 yr. nieces (Joanna and Trinity) plus this new little one!!!

I'm glad I know families that want to have lots of children! My second oldest brother said yesterday that I was a black-hole for babies. Babies go in and are rarely seen again. :) You know... he's right!

And now I can rest easy. I've let my secret out and must get back to work on my long list.

Happy 19!

Yesterday was my older brother Micah's nineteenth birthday.

It was one of those birthdays were he was working all day at his new job. He had left early Wednesday and returned at one this morning.

At least he still plays with his younger siblings!

The Imperials

Have any of you heard of The Imperials? Well, this is one of their songs that I love.

Oh Buddha

Well old buddha was a man,
And I'm sure that he ment well.
But I pray for his disciples, lest they wind up in hell.

And I'm sure that old muhammed, thought he knew the way,
But it won't be hare' christna we stand before on the
judgement day.

No it won't be old buddha, whose sitting on the thrown
And it won't be old muhammed, whose callin' us home
And it won't be hare' christna, who plays that trumpet tune
And we're goin' to see the Son not reverend moon. (refrain)

Now I don't hate anybody, so please don't take me wrong,
But there really is a message, in this simple song.
You see there's only One Way-Jesus, if Eternal Life is your goal.
And meditation of the mind, it won't save your soul.

Because it won't... (refrain)

Now you can call yourself a baptist, and not be born again,
A presbyterian or a methodist, and still die in your sin.
You can even be charismatic, shout and dance, and jump a pew.
But if you hate your brother, you won't be one of the chosen few.

Cause it won't be a baptist, that's sittin' on the thrown,
A presbyterian or a methodist, that's callin' us home.
It won't even be charismatic, that plays that trumpet tune
So let's all just live for Jesus, because he's comin' back real soooooon.

Cause it won't be old buddha...(Refrain)

Yes were goin' to see the Son, and not reverend moon...not reverend moooon.

Here is a slideshow someone put together with the song as background music.


I get tired, at times, with all of the disagreements between Baptists, Presbyterians, and all of the other denominations. I know both Baptists and Presbyterians and I agree with different points from both denominations but I would be categorized as a Baptist. But, I have decided that when someone asks me which I am that, instead of saying that I'm a Baptist, I will say that I'm a Christian first and a Baptist second.

Please feel free to share your thoughts! I would love to hear what others think on this point.

It's amazing how fast the years go as you get older! Yesterday was my seventeenth birthday. It was one of those Sunday's that you wish was slow and peaceful but it was rather fast and busy! With church (at our house) and a soccer tournament we didn't have much family time. But still, I got to spend half the day with my church friends/family and the other half with my real family! My camera is missing so no pictures. Sorry! Thank you to everyone who made my day special!
