Lay Leadership: Volunteer Ministry of the Church


Church Calls for Laws That Protect Religious Freedom

Balance is the key word here. Then love &respect for others.

Game Of A Lifetime

This came to my mind from reading scriptures today, then watching the big game tonight (49ers vs Seahawks)  – You’ll see it’s a bit of a different look at football.


We have a black team and a white team playing against each other. The world is their game field. On one side the cheering fans are angels from heaven. On the other side the cheering fans are Not, but are from below. It’s the fourth quarter and the two minute warning has been called. There are no time outs left for either team. During this long, long game the black team increased in fans greatly, and cheering/yelling loud for their team to win!! During the last minute (that seems to have taken over a century) more calls have been in favor of the black team. Not in keeping with the rules; the rules were changed. The white team, however, is holding on strong and more fans are trickling in for support, and that they are believed in.

This home game will continue for only a little while longer, there will be an end.

Welcome to my smorgasbord of Hobbies & Interests, lol.

There is just so much in life to do, I LOVE IT!!

How could anyone ever get bored? I’m not great at managing my time, but each day I do my best. My daily challenge is living with Multiple Sclerosis. But I’m very fortunate not to be in a wheelchair all the time….. only sometimes. 

 Lately I’ve become very interested in Family History, and there is sooo much to do with that. There’s the research, gathering your own family records, learning of their histories is exciting. And then there’s the   pictures that are pretty cool to see. Pictures of the grand parents, great grand parents, and so forth can bring a sense of belonging. 

It’s hard not to explore History while I’m doing Family History. It all goes together, as it should of course, and it’s fun to discover or rediscover.

From my own history, my life experiences, I’ve found quite a few events to write about.  I write short stories and poems. I’ve finished more poems than stories, but I’m workin on them. I like to keep to the cute and funny side of things. 

I’ve always enjoyed crafts – I don’t knit or crochet anymore, so I’ve become interested in scrap-booking. I actually haven’t done too much with this yet, but hope to some day soon, I have lose pictures that can’t be found very easy, I plan on  putting them together with different themes. 

 Baking is a very comforting to me, the scents of cinnamon & nutmeg filling the air are warm and wonderful. Homemade fudge,apple pie and so much more make the kitchen “the” place to be, and the home easily inviting to friends & family. But let’s not forget the healthy foods – the harvest time of canning all those good home grown apples, peaches, tomatoes, ect.  Also drying some to store a different way, and even freezing some. Healthy foods are very important to me, my body can certainly tell the difference. I feel very blessed to be in an area where I’m able to have fresh produce from the backyard – mostly from my neighbor who graciously shares their overabundance.
