Penny's Beautiful Wedding

My sister Penny got married this past Saturday. Her wedding was very well planned. All the many details were covered. Our large family and Penny's new in-laws all worked together (some much more than others) to make it a big success.

Wrong Decision

Man!, I wish I would have made a different decision. It's been bugging me ever since I decided to not do it. I even filled out the form and didn't turn it in. It's a job that came up at work. I would have made about 30 cents more per hour doing it. Since I've been a ranger for four months I know our line pretty well and I know everybody. I also know our lines routine and schedule in making our ranges. In the job I would be a leader and make sure all of our work areas have enough people. I know I could do this job but I decided not to at the last minute.

When I think of the name "Timmy" an image comes to mind. I picture some little boy about three years old holding a stuffed animal (like a little lamb) and as he is looking up says, "Mommy, will you hold my hand."

Guitarist FunTwo

What do a German composer from the 1700's named Johann Pachelbel and a modern day music arranger named Jerry C. have in common? Well, they can relate to a 19 year old guitarist named Funtwo when it comes to music. Have you ever check out the website, YouTube? You should, it's a place where they show tons of videos sent in from people all over the world.

1st Corinthians 13

A few weeks ago when I went to my sister's wedding, they read 1st Corinthians 13 from the Bible. I'm pretty sure the same was read at my wedding. In fact, I put the last verse of that chapter on the reception napkins along with our names and wedding date. But I was surprised as the preacher began to read it.

You Tube

Okay, I guess I got a little too excited about that tune by FunTwo. Now I've heard it enough that I don't want to hear it anymore. But I still want to tell you about You Tube. Here is a good video my husband and I found on the site:

Another You Tube

Check this video by Judson Laipply. It's called the Evolution of Dance. He's an inspirational comedian. He has a website. I went there and found the list of the song segments he used in his act. Disclaimer: Some of the dance moves are inappropriate. Sorry. I don't know how to edit them out.

Handwritten By Jefferson

I recently visited an informative website of a homeschooling mother. Her site is called Higher Up and Further In. She had a picture of a handwritten paper by Thomas Jefferson. He had what was called a common place book where he would rewrite quotes and other pieces of writing which interested him. In his paper from the website he copied a poem written by Ann Taylor.

Quotes For A Great Life

Less worry, less bitterness, be content and having a positive attitude towards the future fueled by a passion to learn-- When I discovered the blog site, Higher Up and Further In (Please check it out) In it I found some good quotes to help in these critical areas of our lives. They remind me of my life. They are quotes to help overcome discouragement. My children and I have learned "Attitude" by Chuck Swindol which also helps in the same manner as these quotes.

Hoyt Team Revisited

In my last blog entry I embedded the CAN video. A short time later You Tube announced it was longer to be shown. This frustrated me. I liked to watch it because it was so inspirational. Then I found a website that told interesting details of the Hoyt team. The site reprinted an article from Sports Illustrated that gave more details about this amazing duo. As you read it you'll find that at first, the Dad was found lacking in his abilities.
