Beautiful People

The most beautiful people we have known are those who have
 known defeat,
 known suffering,
 known loss,
 and have found their way out of the depths.
These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, 
and an understanding of life
 that fills them with compassion, gentleness, 
and a deep, loving concern.
Beautiful people do not just happen.
--Elizabeth Kubler-Ross

B.B. Stand For Blogger's Block. Help Meeee!!!

My Goodness ! 
I have been in such a Blogger Dry Spell. 
I think about blogging.
 I plan on blogging.
 I want to blog,
 but I just don't know what to blog about.
 Blogger Block.
 It's painful... 
I guess I need to just jump back
 into the Blogging Pool, 
but I also don't want to 
bore people to death. 
So, do I just blog to blog
 or should I wait for something interesting? 
I will keep trying,
 and I am going to start
 Friday Pretties again soon. 
I will have to gather my 
Faithful Friday Pretty Girls
from the far corners of Blog World 
and hopefully grab a few new ones along the way. 
Don't give up on me!
I am still out here in Cyber Land.
 I have just sunk 
Deep into Lazy Summer Mode.
 I really like it here.
 But, Autumn  life is calling. 
Back to real life soon...
Time flies Soooo fast when 
you are having fun!!!
Please feel free to share any tips 
you have for getting unstuck. 
Love, Joyce

Our Annviversary

"We are all a little weird 
and life's a little weird, 
and when we find someone whose
 weirdness is compatible with ours,
 we join up with them 
and call it love."   
 -Dr. Seuss
Today is our 27th anniversary.

You can see my post from last year
But,  for today, I have re-posted just a bit of 
last year's post-

Twenty-six years ago today
two very young kids got married.

Those young kids,
who thought that they were Very grow-up,
were Big Jer and I.
We were 21 and 22.
Some would say that that is not so young...
We were!
And, now that I have a 21 year old
I really know how young that is.

We stood before friends, family
and most importantly, before God.
and vowed to
Love and Honor
each other.
We promised to be married until
Do 21 year old "Kids" really understand
"Until death do us part."
Well, through all of these years together,
all of our big and small events,
all of our unbelievable joys
and some heartbreaking trials,
we have,
By The Grace Of God,
stood the test of time.
We do not take any of these years for granted.
We are thankful, every day,
for August 11, 1984 until today.
We are even thankful for those heartbreaks,
because through adversity
strength is truly born.

Love You Jer!!!

Full Nest...Empty Nest...Full Nest...

For a whole week 
my husband and I had an empty nest.
It was a test.
How will we do when that time comes?

Well, we filled it up with fun and
 tried to keep busy,
but our nest felt Very empty.
Our two older boys have moved out 
and our youngest was on 
a mission trip for a week.
We had adjusted to only having 
one at home- 
but there was a a huge hole 
in our world with our youngest gone!
He is back!
Our middle son has moved back in
 for a little while,

Our nest feels full again.
See that chick with his mouth wide open
waiting for Mom to feed him?
I so get that!
Ha Ha
Boys are always HUNGRY!
But, I am thrilled to be able to feed them.
Now I just need to formulate a plan to get my third chick home...

Children are a gift from the LORD; 
they are a reward from him.
Psalm 127:3
