Whispers of Hope

Bright Morning Star
God's diamond brooch
Upon the blackest night

Whispering Hope
'Neath mercy's cloak,
"The dark is almost light!"

Waken, Slumber!
Sleep not past
The painted dawn for thee.

Burst forth, O Star
One day not far
And shine Thy light on me.

-Beth Moore

Bambi & Thumper - they really DO exist!!

This was the cutest of the email forwards I received! Everyone knows the all familiar animated movie "Bambi" with the adorable Bambi the deer and Thumper the rabbit.

Well a probably very quiet and patient photographer captured these shots of a REAL LIVE Bambi and Thumper!

And these were only a couple! There were pictures of these cute lil friends from winter to spring!
Cool isn't it?

Be careful...

Another email forward with some USEFUL information (especially during the holiday season):

If you are driving at night and eggs are thrown at your windshield. Do not operate the wiper and spray any water because eggs mixed with water become milky and block your vision up to 92.5% so you are forced to stop at the roadside and become a victim of robbers. This is a new technique used by robbers. Please inform your friends and relatives.

KINDLE II Giveaway!!!

No I'm not kidding - this blogger is GIVING AWAY a brand new Kindle II!!! For those avid readers out there I'm sure you already know what this is but in case you don't this is pretty much an electric book. You can download any book, magazine, newspaper onto it for only a few dollars each instead of paying full price for the book and it sitting on a shelf for years afterwards and ending up in a garage sale! You can put them all on this Kindle AND it has...okay I don't know the techy word - but it's NOT a lighted screen like a computer so it won't hurt your eyes!! It's the same as looking at a page of paper! They are incredible! My parents both have them and would never trade them!

So anyways I wanted to let you all know about it (mainly because I get an extra entry by posting this!! hehe!) so check out this great giveaway opportunity at BiblioFreakBlog.

Comical Christmas Decorations

So in a lull of what to blog about I received some hilarious email forwards and decided to share a few of them. Here is the first and the best! It is a picture of someones comical Christmas Decorations and their story below:

"Good news is that I truly out did myself this year with my Christmas decorations. The bad news is that I had to take him down after 2 days. I had more people come screaming up to my house than ever.Great stories. But two things made me take it down.

First, the cops advised me that it would cause traffic accidents as they almost wrecked when they drove by.

Second, a 55 year old lady grabbed the 75 pound ladder almost killed herself putting it against my house and didn't realize it was fake until she climbed to the top (she was not happy). By the way, she was one of many people who attempted to do that.

My yard couldn't take it either. I have more than a few tire tracks where people literally drove up my yard."

10 Things I learned about CRUISES

I just got back from my very first CRUISE! My husband and I went on the "Ecstasy" through Carnival Cruise Lines and had a blast! Our two "ports" were Cozumel and Progresso. I may do a series of things I learned or other things about cruises but here is my first post, "10 Things I Learned About Cruises".

1. Prepare to have your equilibrium messed up when you finally get home.

2. There is not ONE trash can outside of your rooms! You leave your food or mess and it magically all gets cleaned up!

3. You can buy a book that gives you instructions on how to make the adorable little towel animals.

4. It is very important to remember to leave out socks for your de-embarkation. (you pack everything up except what you need in the morning and set it outside your door to be taken to the terminal the night before you arrive)

5. Progresso is NOT a worthwhile stop UNLESS you go see the Mayan Ruins (seriously that's about all you want to do here...I don't recommend the beach or shopping!)

6. You can get a free Sudoku puzzle from the library each day.

7. If you can't decide what to order they will just bring you both.

8. You may get food FROM anywhere, TAKE it anywhere to eat and then LEAVE it anywhere to be cleaned up.

9. Do not try to play the mini putt putt golf while the boat is moving. (Wait until you are at port!)

10. Do NOT go to the front of the boat while it is moving unless your hair is tied up or very short!

Have you ever been on a cruise???
