Only in America

1. Only in America......can a pizza get to your house faster than an ambulance.

2. Only in America......are there handicap parking places in front of our skating rinks.

3. Only in drugstores make the sick walk all the way to the back of the store to get their prescriptions, while healthy people can buy cigarettes at the front.

4. Only in people order double cheeseburgers, large fries, and a Diet Coke.

5. Only in banks leave both doors open and then chain the pens to the counters.

6. Only in we leave cars worth thousands of dollars in the driveway and put our useless junk in the garage.

7. Only in we use answering machines to screen calls and then have call waiting so we won't miss a call from someone we didn't want to talk to in the first place.

8. Only in we buy hot dogs in packages of ten and buns in packages of eight.

9. Only in we use the word 'politics' to describe the process so well: 'Poli' in Latin meaning 'many' and 'tics' meaning 'bloodsucking creatures'.

pretty crazy huh?

Have a simply wonderful day!

Maelynn's Mocha Punch

I don't normally share recipes. . . because I don't cook, but this stuff right here is awesome! Thanks Maelynn for sharing with all of us!!!

Maelynn's Mocha Punch!

1 ½ quarts water
½ cup instant chocolate milk (powder)
½ cup sugar
¼ cup instant coffee
½ gallon vanilla ice cream
½ gallon chocolate ice cream
Cool whip

Bring water to a boil, take the water off the stove and add chocolate mix, sugar and instant coffee. Stir until dissolved. Let cool of and refrigerate over night. In a punch bowl add vanilla and chocolate ice cream (I find it mixes better when the ice cream is soft so I let it stand out for a short time. Then pour your mixture on top of that and add your cool whip and serve! =)

He he . . . .

Thought this was too cute. . . had to share!

A couple had been debating buying a vehicle for weeks.
He wanted a truck.
She wanted a fast little sports-like car so she could zip through traffic around town.
He would probably have settled on any beat up old truck, but everything she seemed to like was way out of their price range.
"Look !" she said. " I want something that goes from 0 to 200 in just a few seconds. Nothing else will do. My birthday is coming up so surprise me!"
He did just that.
For her birthday, he bought her a brand new bathroom scale.
Nobody has seen or heard from him since.

" Forever, O Lord. . . "

The Bible Lives. . . .

Generation follows generation - yet it LIVES.
Nations rise and fall– yet It LIVES.
Kings, dictators, rulers come and go– yet It LIVES.
Torn, condemned, burned– yet It LIVES.
Hated, despised, cursed– yet It LIVES.
Doubted, suspected, criticized– yet It LIVES.
Scoffed at by scorners– yet It LIVES.
Misconstrued and misstated– yet It LIVES.
Ranted and raved about– yet It LIVES.
Its inspiration denied– yet It LIVES.
Yet It LIVES– as a lamp to our feet.
Yet It LIVES– as a light to our paths.
Yet It LIVES– as the gate to Heaven.
Yet It LIVES– as a standard for childhood.
Yet It LIVES– as a guide for youth.
Yet It LIVES - an inspiration for the matured.
Yet It LIVES - comfort for the aged.
Yet it LIVES - food for the hungry.
Yet It LIVES - water for the thirsty.
Yet It LIVES - strength for the weary.
Yet It LIVES - as light for the heathen.
Yet It LIVES - as salvation for the sinner.
Yet It LIVES - as grace for the believer.
To know it is to love it.
To love it is to accept it.
To accept it means life eternal.

Change. . . .

Someone once said, "Change is the spice of life." As I think about everything that has come to pass over the course of the year 2009, I can only say that I am truly grateful.

SO. . . . . .

This year:

1. I moved back home from 2 and a half years of Bible college in Hot Springs, Arkansas.

2. I enrolled in Northwestern State University (majoring in Social Studies Ed.)

3. I got my dream job @ FHS! =)

4. I started teaching 4 piano students, which soon turned into 18 with a waiting list! Thank you
LORD! =)

5. I got my driver's license. . . . this was a BIGGIE for me!

It's been an interesting year, can't wait to see what the Lord has in store for 2010. . . . .

BUT. . . . .

for now I'll finish up this last week of work for 2009 and enjoy Christmas.

Merry Christmas,

HOME for the Holidays

Oh, there's no place like HOME for the holidays,

'Cause no matter how far away you roam

When you pine for the sunshine of a friendly face

For the holidays, you can't beat HOME, sweet HOME

I met a man who lives in Tennessee

And he was headin' for Pennsylvania

And some homemade pumpkin pie

From Pennsylvania folks a travelin' down

To Dixie's sunny shore

From Atlantic to Pacific, gee

The traffic is terrific

Oh there's no place like HOME

For the holidays, 'cause no matter

How far away you roam

If you want to be happy in a million ways

For the holidays, you can't beat

HOME, sweet HOME!

I simply LOVE this time of the year! Christmas carols, family, presents, food, sparkling lights, it's simply magical. . . . .

May you have a very MERRY CHRISTMAS.
