To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did.' When God takes something from your grasp, He's not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better. Concentrate on this sentence... 'The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you.

That is enough about me. I am not sure how this works but I would like to award the Honest Scrap Award to all my Blogger friends. Leslie told me to copy and paste my award to my blog. So you guys can too. I hope it works. Anyway you make me smile, and you make me cry. You give me great advice and you give me something to look forward to every morning.

  4. Hi Karen,

    Congrats again on the well deserved award. It was great to read your list of 10 things. I can't imagine driving a bus! I always wonder how they make hairpin turns, back up, and in general just how hard buses must be to maneuver.

    We do have some common things - I also am a Christian, love to eat out (probably my favorite activity :( ), and have a son still in college at Emory. Another son has left college for awhile to figure out what he wants to do. I'd have more animals if hubby would go for it, and though I love cats, they make me sneeze more than I normally do, which would be ridiculous! Take care -

  5. Congratulations. I think that all caregivers need a pat on the back, especially those who don't get paid for it.

    I am definitely a beginner blogger, because I'm not sure how to do the award. So here are my 10...
    Christian, married 37 yrs to now retired railroad nut, 2 very smart daughters with degrees, BS in education, 45+ sewing experience who had her own business for 12 yrs, snowman collector & allergic to shellfish & Christmas trees (evergreen!), sister to a dying brother, sister to a wonderful sister, & loves reading blogs.
    From your one of your newest readers!

  6. Thank you .Leslie and Beckie. I love both your blogs. Sorry Beckie about your brother I will pray for him. And congrats to both you and Leslie for your wonderful kids.

  7. Thanks for stopping by today! I am going to try the sites out...they sound great. Congrats on the award!


Thanks for visiting my blog and I love reading your comments. Please come back soon. Karen
