And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God,
to them who are the called according to his purpose. . Romans 8:28


For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout,
with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God:
and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air:
and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 1 Thessalonians 4:16,17 / KJV
Jesus is our soon coming King
James 5:8 Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh."

OOOOH La Latte!!!

Good Morning!
I hope you are enjoying your new year.
I was worried there would be hiccups with blogger or yahoo or something this morning
(becuase with time changes or holidays, there usually are, 
for me anyway...
but maybe I am just special :))
Anyway, as I was saying, I was worried about hiccups, so
I got up early to get the posts up for my blog and the FBD blog. 
I had it half prepared last night and saved it, got to bed close to 3 AM
and set the alarm. I DID NOT WANT TO GET UP, lol, 
but I love you all THAT much :D
(Our New Years consisted of my parents coming over to eat homemade pizza,
leaving around 10:30, getting myself a shower to wake up, the kids playing video games and my husband watching a football game. Then we turned the TV on to see the ball drop. My daughter was sickened by her dad and I kissing. She thinks any kiss between a guy and a girl is gross right now. I pretend that I believe her. I hope this lasts a good long while! My son was uber disappointed wondering what all that was about and how lame it was and how he thought the ball should fall and bounce or something.. then open up to reveal a large amount of puppies that had been safely secured inside with seat belts and everyone in Time Square would have a puppy. Yes, that would have been wonderful :D The kids went to bed by 12:45 and I was just not sleepy anymore. I hit that wall. The one that makes your brain go DING! and I just couldn't sleep. My poor, no longer teenage body, will pay for it today I am sure. 

OK, on to the reason I am here.
