Last evening in church, our evangelist was preaching about Jesus coming again, and at the close he invited people to the altar. I think it was after 2 verses Bryan nudged me and said to talk to Brittany. I look over at her, and there is a tear coming down her cheek. I leaned over and asked her if she wanted to go up and she said No! So, I put my head down and started praying and all of a sudden she pushed passed Breanna and grabbed my hand and said, "Go with me!" So of course I did! She wanted to be sanctified ~ and she was!!! As I was praying with her someone else knelt beside me ~ I looked and it was Zachary! He was praying to ask Jesus to save him and then he prayed for Trenton and his seizures and for Trenton to get saved!!! Very precious. Then when they said for the Christians to come forward, Brooklynn came up! She was very intent on asking Jesus to help her with her temper! She said that she was saved, and she knew what she wanted to talk to God about!! I went back to my seat and there sat Breanna with Trenton. She was crying so I just asked her if she needed to pray. She said No. She was just praying for the others. I then asked Trenton, and he said No!! We are still working on him! And Jesus is too!! The children wanted to talk the whole 2 hours and 20 minutes home!! I finally had them to get quiet so they could sleep since it was going on 11 o'clock. They were all happy and excited!! Do you remember doing that? I do!

I did get to meet a fellow blogger ~ Nicole Cassady. They were the special singers and BJ Walker was the evangelist. I wish we could have been able to get up there more and not just for Sunday! Jesus knows!! Nicole is a wonderful, magnificent pianist and I loved her voice! Her husband did well also!! *-* I would have loved to spend more time with them because they seem like an awesome couple with adorable children!! I love meeting new people!!

Update on our house: At this point it looks like we'll being going up in the next week or two. We are going up tomorrow to meet with the realtor and then go and fill out job applications for me!! I am excited about this new journey ahead of us!! We'll see what happens!! Thank you for everyone's prayers!! I so do appreciate it!!

Disclaimer! Or Whatever!

I thought I should clarify any misconceptions that I would change some things about my husband. I started thinking, "What would I change? Would I have him eat chocolate with me? No, then I would be much bigger than I am! Would I have him eat anything that I cook? Oh wait! He already does that!" I am stumped!! I really would not change anything about him!! He is just right! You know, like when you wouldn't change a thing about a Reese cup! It is perfect just the way it is! We go together like double stuff oreo's and milk!! Okay!! I want to eat some chocolate!! I need to find some!! Do ya'll have any? Wanna share?

Ignore all the above if you are offended by husband's and chocolate!!!

Funny things!

I LOVE my children. Each one of them have an amazing personality! I was up on 2nd floor checking out a website called and I kept hearing Brooklynn talking. Well, I thought she was bring my phone to me or something. I go and look over the banister and she is looking into the hall mirror with a pretend phone to her ear and talking away!! She is so funny! I was real quiet until she walked away!! She would turn her head differently, I guess checking herself out in a different angle! Too cute!! I must admit, I remember doing some of that stuff! I am sure No One else did when they were younger, or maybe you still do!! I am not going to judge you!!

Here she is with her friend Melissa Crosley

Sad news

It was sad to hear this morning that John Case, Jr. passed away this morning. He was Cathy Brugger's husband. They have 3 children ~ I believe their oldest John is 16, Catrina is 13 or 14 and Jaceyln is 12. Please remember this family in prayer!! So sad!!

Bro. Brugger called us this morning to let us know. He asked Bryan to preach tomorrow morning and GBS choir is there tomorrow evening. I am to lead the church choir tomorrow morning. The Brugger's left to go and be with Cathy and the kids this morning. John went to GBS and he traveled with the quartets and he traveled with the trio I was in the first year. That is where Cathy and him got together! He always helped with running the sound at IHC too.

Tag Time!

Alright! I was tagged twice and I have been putting it off and wishing it would go away!! What do I have to say? I am sure my husband and friends could think of plenty!!
Seven things about me that you may not know nor wish to know!

1. The most important thing is- I love, I mean really love CHOCOLATE!
and it can be the cheap stuff! Like, reese cups, snickers, choc. chip cookies, that
kind of thing. I have never tried Godiva and I really can't stand those candies they buy at Christmas or Valentine's day. (things that come in a box) I do not even know the name of them!

2. My hair is down to my ankles. I use to have the feathered bangs and my mom
always trimmed my hair. I quit cutting and trimming it when I was 18 yrs. old.
When I went to College my hair was in the middle of my back. When I graduated it was between my bottom and knees. After all those pregnancies, it grew down to my ankles and has stopped! Thank God!

3. I always wanted a lot of kids. My first thought was 7 and then 6. So when Bryan and I got married I said I wanted 4 live pregnancies!! Not even thinking about twins!

4. God called me to teach high school choir when I was a junior in high school. I attended a public school and we had a lady choir director! So, out of the 15 years out of college, I have taught high school choir 10 years. It has been great!!

5. I am the baby of my family. I have an older sister and brother!

6. I love to read books ~ mainly fictional ones. Dee Henderson is one of my favorite authors. I also like the Left Behind series.

7. I love Southern Gospel music!! Most of it anyway!! My favorites right now are Greater Vision, the Hoppers, the Booth Brothers and Gaither Vocal Band. I also enjoyed Keith's group Liberty when I heard them in person. I am weird in the way I like to see people sing, then I will buy their CD's or videos. Oh yeah, I love the Reggie Saddler family!! Love their harmony!

That took a while!! I am glad that is done now it is not hanging over my head!! Since everybody is pretty much tagged, another reason that I held off, I will tag my friend Sharmen who has a blog now. It is Since I can't figure out how to do the links on my page, that will have to do!

Now my never ending laundry awaits!

Birthday Celebrations!

I am finally back with much disgust! I have been busy, and really not wanting to post! How is that for honesty?!? Anyway, I do have some things to blog about so here it goes!

The twins had their 13th b-day last month, oops 2 months ago! I cannot believe that they have reached the teen age! Lots of fun is happen' here now because of it! Just kidding. Here are a couple of pics that I had to scan (which is what I was struggling with) so the quality is probably not the best. They were cute little munchkins once they started gaining weight. They weighed 4lbs 7.5 ozs. and 4lbs. 6.5 ozs. They were 6 weeks early and I had them totally natural at an Amish midwife's place. It was great!

They are 2 1/2 months in this picture. Breanna is on the left and Brittany is on the right! The next ones are at the church we pastored in Brent, Alabama. They would have been a year old in those pics. Sorry about them being smaller, but I couldn't figure out how to enlarge them! Twins were fun to have! I am glad that I had them first and not last tho! Whew!! Many happy memories!

Then we celebrated Brooklynn's b-day in September. She turned 11 years old!! She was extremely happy for this day to come. She told me that she is finally growing up because she can tell that she is acting differently!! I just had to smile! That is my Brook!!

Again sorry for the size! Hopefully you can see some of them! Her labor was different since it was induced! She was 2 weeks early and weighed 7lbs 9 ozs. We were a little bit nervous when I was expecting again and I felt that it was a girl ~ we didn't want her to feel that she did not receive enough attention since the twins received tons of attention! God took care of that!! She came out with a personality!! She is the one who will say things that makes me wonder where she came from!! ( my family loves to remind me that she is me! I do not see that *-*) She made our family complete until the next ones!! She was so mischievous! She would get into everything!! When she started getting older of course everybody thought we had triplets!! She is as big as Breanna now and passing them up in other ways. Most people who meet the girls think that Brook is the oldest!! Does not sit well with the twins, especially Breanna since she is the oldest and the smallest!! Life is interesting here!!!

Thank you for checking out a little bit of the girls stories. There is soooo much more that I could share, but I am afraid of boring you dear people!!
