Ryan is 21!!!!

I figured since it had been a while sense I had posted anything, today seemed like the best time.  Our son, Ryan is 21 today.  Ryan wasn't sure he wanted to come into the world 21 years ago, but with time and some help for the Dr. he did finally come. Our family was complete, well for me anyway. 
I am sure that Todd would have wanted another little one but for me I was finished.
To say the least, we are very proud of Ryan, he recently finished
 the ISOM (international school of ministry)  certificate that our church was facilitating.  He is an honest and considerate young man.  God has been faithful in his life.  From the moment he was born there have been times of great challenges for him.  When he was born he needed oxygen to wake him up, he had the cord wrapped around his neck.  He fell down the stairs in his walker when he was only 9 months old.  He had his challenges in school, but most of all God has been faithful in is 21 years.
We believe God has some great assignments for his life, missions is a big thing for Ryan.  He went on his first missions trip a year and a half ago to the Philippines.  He loved every minute of it, and I do believe he plans to go on another one soon.
So today, I honour my son Ryan.  
Happy Birthday and may you dream big and may they all come true!!!!!!!!!

Ambitions and Dreams!!!

Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart!!!!!!!!


I have had a dream for a very long time.   I wondered if it would ever come to past.  
Over and over there would be confirmations, but I still waited.  This was one of those dreams that  you take off the shelf and then put back on the shelf and wait and then wait some more.
Well, the time has come and my dream is about to come true.  I am heading to Westport, Ont. tomorrow to record my very first CD.  Yes, it's true, I can hardly believe it myself.  
God has brought some wonderful and talented people into my life that have made this truly possible.
Dan Cutrona and Andrew Martin will be producing it and of course John Wendling has been the P.R. man.  Of course, how could I forget my loving and faithful husband. God knew that I could not have done any of this on my own. Dreaming was about as close as I could come to making this a reality.  They just put it all into action. Thanks so much guys... It has all come together so quickly!!!!


Trust in the Lord with all your heart and don't trust in your own understanding but in everything acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths.  Prov.3:5-6.  (My life verse)

Interesting Fortune cookie sayings.......


A while ago Shari put some fortune cookie sayings on her blog along with some interesting ones from Vicki's  too, and if we ever had any interesting ones.  Well, my husband Todd and I went out for chinese tonight for a Valentine's supper.  Here are the fortune cookie sayings that we got tonight.........

Mine was, "You can be a victor without having victims."

Todd's was "When you have no choice, mobilize the spirit of courage."

How true is that, so we always have a choice even when we think we don't, have courage when life seems to be throwing us curve balls!!!!!  

We are Victor's not Victim's!!!!!!
I must admit we have has some interesting fortune cookie sayings over the years.

God can keep secrets!!!!

Well, here are some pictures from our vacation in Mexico.  We had a great time and the extra special surprise was that our best friends of over 20 years were there.  They were able to keep it a secret and we had absolutely no clue that they were able to come.  

I say that God can keep secrets because usually I can pick up on surprises and usually know about them and God didn't give me any insight at all.  Julie and I raised our kids together and we have been through probably every milestone together.  It was so fun to just "have fun" together.  I highly recommend it to everyone.  

I just want to thank Roger and Julie for surprising us and finally after all these years going on vacation together.    Here's to more vacations and other milestones together!!!!!
