Sister, Sister!!

Joann has on the white shirt.

Today is the day that my younger sister comes for a visit. She currently lives in Mississippi, but will soon be moving to Illinois. She as 2 precious girls, (my nieces) HA! I once tried to get her to give them to me, but to no avail. Anyway, I think maybe being their aunt is more fun, spoil them then send them back. (sounds good) lol!

Kaydee and Kayla

My sister's name is Joann, and she is married the greatest guy, Brad. And Kaydee and Kayla, who are 11 months apart, are my nieces. I am sooooo, happy that they are moving up here. Brad has been here for a year already. He has gone home, to Mississippi, a few times and now the whole family is moving here. It will be a big change for the girls though. I pray that they will adjust.

As I mentioned the other day, the kids came for the weekend. We had a really great weekend overall, with them here. But of course with a 13 year old, we ended with a bit of drama. We went to our church Saturday night, there are 3 services, one on Saturday night, and 2 Sunday morning. It is just much easier, for us to go on Saturday night, when the kids are visiting. We always seem to have Sunday morning drama, if we try to get everyone out the door, to make it for Sunday morning. But anyway, Saturday night our pastor spoke of the Good Samaritan. He spoke of how if we see a need, we should address that need. I have a longing within my heart to develop some sort of ministry to the people in my neighborhood, but especially the ones on my street. I am praying that God will show me His will, and asking that He guide me to how to best minister for Him. I ask that you would pray for that with me also.

With my sister being here for a few days, I am looking forward to being with her. I have a couple of fun little outings planned for us to do. We will most certainly be making a trip to Joann Fabrics. I love that store and Hobby Lobby. I can spend hours in either one of them. I have taken Amber and Jacky a few times and we talk about the things we would love to buy and crafts we can make. Joann and I do the same thing. I have taken Hubby a few times, but he RUSHES me. So I will be leaving him at home this trip. Poor thing, he just goes there because I want him to, but he really can't stand it. But I do give him points for trying. He is such a sweet man. (99% of the time)

I need to get cracking, Joann will be here in 2 hours. I have things to do. I hope everyone has a great week. Take care and God bless you all.

Hi Renee,

Thank you for stopping by and taking a moment to introduce yourself. I am sure you are having a lovey visit with your sister at this point. I am putting myself as a follower, and I hope to see you again soon!!

I will have to come back and put myself as a follower, it isn't co-operating with me:)
