I took your place.

Bub emailed me this poem so I thought I would share with all of you. Sometimes we just need to slow down and think of others! God Bless.

One day a man went to visit a church. He arrived early, parked his car, and got out. Another car pulled up near him, and the driver told him, "I always park there. You took my place!"

The visitor went inside for Sunday School, found an empty seat and sat down. A young lady from the church approached him and stated, "That's my seat! You took my place!"

The visitor was somewhat distressed by this rude welcome, but said nothing. After Sunday School, the visitor went into the church sanctuary and sat down. Another member walked up to him and said, "That's where I always sit. You took my place!"

The visitor was even more troubled by this treatment, but still said nothing. Later, as the congregation was praying for Christ to dwell among them, the visitor stood, and his appearance began to change. Horrible scars became visible on his hands and on his sandaled feet. Someone from the congregation noticed him and called out, "What happened to you?"

The visitor replied, "I took your place!!"

I was baptized today and finally joined the church, so I now have a home church and a church family. I was really nervous before hand (I didn't want to get up infront of everyone) but after words I realized it wasn't so bad. I got a pleasant surprise today to find out that Dan's little brother John was getting baptized as well. There were 3 of us doing it all together today which made it a lot easier since I was not the only one. My parents, little brother, niece, and nephew all came to watch and support me today which made it very special having my family there in church with me.

After church Mom and Dad went to get chicken and cake while Austin and I went to get feed for the rabbits and dogs. I should have known not to take Austin to TSC with me I knew he would get me in trouble. You see they have baby chics and I alway make a quick tour around the chics to check them out and hurry and get me feed to get out before I end up with chics. Well that didn't work today and we will just blame Austin since he made me do it LOL. Well we walked out with feed and 15 baby chics. Not sure what kind they are the tag just said assorted mixed. Once they get so big TSC puts them on sale to try and sell them before they start jumpin out of the water troughs. That and Austin making me was all I needed to be pushed over the edge. How can you tell your 7 year old nephew no?There was a time right after High School when I sold all my animals and didn't have anything but a dog. How things have changed in my old age and for the better! I am getting back to how I use to be before the bad years as I call them since I made so many stupid decisions. Not sure my parents are ready for all the critters again but I am! I dont know how anyone ever lives life without pets I still dont know how I did it, but I thank God everyday for giving me the second chance to live and what a great life I do live! God Bless and have a blessed week!

Great Day

It was in the 80s today and not humid at all so it was the perfect time to outside all day! I got all my cages burned and disinfected thank God! Now its time to get the new cage hung and drop nest boxes put in a couple of my litter pens.

We got some new fish for the pond today flathead minnows, jumbo tadpoles, and black crappie. I got some pics of my brother putting them in the pond.My older brother and his kids brought back the fuzzy lops today. The kids wanted to Thriantans to show in 4H. One of the fuzzy does they had brought over a while back to have babies in the barn. So I get to keep the baby now. He is a REW buck named Dusty's Prince Caspien. I think I spelled that right LOL. Is he not the cutest little thing in the world. I think it works out better with me keeping the fuzzys. The kids dont have to worry about grooming them and making sure they get enough hay and I can spin the fuzzy wool! I was on the American Fuzzy Lop club blog today and there was an entry about a woman spinning her fuzzy wool. Since the give so little wool she just puts all the different colors together and spins it all at once to get a multi colored yarn. I will have to save some brushings and try this. Hope everyones day was as perfect as mine God Bless!

3 Weeks I cant believe it!!!

Well 3 weeks ago today I left for a trip to SC with Dan and Tonya to see a couple preachers, the preachers turned out to be a flop (they believe in Lordship Salvation) and we left at the intermission but the trip was not a total waste look where were went!THE OCEAN!!! We went to folly beach 2 days in a row it was so nice down there I really didn't want to come home at all. You have not lived until you go to the ocean and eat fresh sea food! WOW shrimp clams oysters fish and scallops YUMMY I'm getting hungry again. This is a pic of the church we went to, how awesome is that! It was so on a college campus in Charelston SC. The town itself was nothing to look at but the campus was nice and the beaches rock as always. This was only the second time I had seen the ocean and it was the first time Tonya has ever seen it. Its the only place I know where you can go in water up mid thigh and still get soaked! While all this was great the reason I am so excited and happy about it being 3 weeks is because the day we left was MY FIRST DAY OF NOT SMOKING AND ITS NOW BEEN 3 WEEKS OF A SMOKE FREE LIFE!!!!!! I am so happy even if I am eating enough to make a horse sick and I am getting so fat LOL.

I hope that this inspires someone reading this blog that smokes to quite as well. I was up to a pack and a half a day and now nothing. God is amazing I never thought I could do this but I have and I am making it! Not only is smoking looked down at by the world but it is unbiblical to boot here are a couple of verses to study form my KJV bible.

1 Corinthians 6:19-20
What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit which is in you, which ye have God, and ye are not your own?
For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God's.

2 Corintians 7:1
Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness on the fear of God.

If anyone needs any prayers please let me know and I will pray for your and offer advice to help. God Bless I pray each of you find Salvation in the Lord Jesus Christ!

Miss California

It is all over the net and every TV show has something to say about Miss California's response to the same sex marriage questions on the beauty pageant. Well I know there are many out there that do not agree with my Biblical views on things but I have to tip my hat to her! Way to go Miss California! It takes one strong and courageous woman to stand up and say the right thing no matter where they are or who is around even if it is going to cost you the crown. I believe American needs more people with that kind of courage today. Think if everyone one was to stand up say and do the right thing what a better place we would live in. The Bible is our road map to life in every situation no matter what we are going through there is an answer there. God gives us every answer we need, its all wrote down in a book for all of us to open and read at anytime. God Bless Miss California and God Bless each of you reading this post! I pray that each of you find Salvation and the many gifts that God freely gives us!

Just some thoughts and other ramblings

Sorry its been so long since I have posted anything. I have been tossing things around in my head a lot lately, about breeding for color more. As most of you know I have my black Germans that I am hoping I can get enough of my lines blood into them to breed black to black. Also I have sweet dreams of little fawns dancing in my head, what a sweet day that will be when I get my first fawn. I have been thinking of adding some more colors though and maybe not breeding whites at all once i get a good start. Even if that does means I cant show for the time being. Colors will be excepted in Giants sooner or later. Colors I would like to add to what I have are Blue, Lilac and Choc. I believe these self colors will breed very well with my blacks and if I stay with the self color breeding I am hoping my colors wont fade as much and will go all the way down the hair shaft. I am also unsure if I want to add English or French to get the colors I want. French may be the best thing to add since the body type is the same and they are a bigger rabbit. Of course then there is do I sell some or most of my whites to people that are showing or do I hang onto all of them or just the best couple ones? I guess the best thing to do is test breed and see who is carrying what genes to see if they would be any help in that breeding program or not. I still have a lot to learn about genetics wow can that be confusing to my little head! God Bless I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter and remembered the true meaning of Easter!
