Wow!  It's been like FOREVER since I blogged!!!  I'm sure no one even knows this place exists anymore...I even had a hard time finding  Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter have taken over the world.  I thought I might try and blog again.  Who knows how long this will last...maybe today or maybe I will start doing it regularly.  Time will Tell.

Not a lot has been going on except this horrible weather that continue to haunt us.  This is the most snow I ever remember getting in Kentucky.  I don't like it.  The kids are not even asking to go out in weird.  As a child I would have drove my parents crazy about going on in it and staying for as long as my skin could possibly take it.  Times have definitely changed.

We were suppose to have a Ladies Retreat this weekend but it was canceled due to the snow.  My daughter, Haley was going to join us for her first time ever this year.  Maybe Sis. Sharon will be able to get it rescheduled.

It has been kind of rough on us all due to having to cancel so much church due to the weather.  I hate missing church.  I don't know how people go weeks on end and choose not to go to church.  My week days are all messed up when I go one service without going.  I depend so much on those three times a week that we meet together to worship and fellowship together.  Praying this is the last of the bad ready for spring!

Haley is now 15 years old.  She is a beautiful young lady who loves God.  I love watching her mature in the Lord.  She joined the church last August and I couldn't be more proud!  She has a beautiful singing voice that she uses for the Lord.

Taylor is getting ready next month to turn 10.  Wow...double digits.  My baby girl is not so much a baby anymore.  She is a talented young lady too.  And very social.  She has a beautiful singing voice too but won't sing up in front of church much...she won't admit it but she is very shy when it comes to those kinds of things.

That brings me to my sweet Aiden.  He turned 3 last August.  I didn't have him the last time I posted on here.He was a sweet surprise to us!  I got a sweet baby boy that I couldn't see my life without him now.  So thankful for that sweet blessing!!!  He is so full of energy and mischievousness.  I have a hard time keeping up with!  He definitely keeps us on our toes!

We now live in Elizabethtown and have lived here for almost 5 years now.  We love it here..we actually live on the outskirts of Glendale, a little historic town outside of Etown.  It is awesome.

I'm not sure where the Lord will take us but until then..we are happy here!!!

Well I think I will stop for now...hopefully I will keep this actually feels good to blog..don't know why I stopped.  :-)

I love Summertime!!

Not alot really going on..of course we had the most wonderful camp you could have imagine!! It was very AWESOME!! Here is a picture....

We all had a wonderful time...the services were outstanding!! I haven't been in services like that in a long time if ever!!! They were powerful!! Bro. Anthony Dyer was our evangelist and he truly let the Lord use him!!

Other than that it has been slow since camp. I have been staying pretty busy with the kids..softball games, library, slip-n-slide, and other fun things!! I love summertime because me and the kids stay up late, sleep late, and really just have a blast!! Yes, I do have to work laundry and house cleaning in there somewhere but it's all good!! LOL!

Well that is about it for now..I'll post more later...Our Regional Convention is this coming weekend..excited about that!!

Good News About my MOM

Today we went back to the was the first doctor visit since the big ordeal last month. They said they would start her on a new chemo..this chemo they said would not be as affective as the prior chemo she was on. So that being said there is a lesser percent that this chemo will be effective. God is sooooo good!! There is this blood test that they do that tells them the amount of tumors you have in your is said to be a tumor is called a C125. They do this blood test everytime she goes and right after her surgery, back in April her tumor marker was 147. That is high..but let me say that when we first found out that she had Ovarian cancer it was up int the thousands!! So that was still low compared to were it once was. Last month when we went it had dropped from 147 to 57...nice drop..well they were unable to give her chemo last month due to her bad reaction..guess what it was this month without chemo???? a 19...God is so awesome!! anything below 35 is considered normal is actually lower now than it was back in Januray at a 26. She has been as low as a 8 before when God healed her the first time...I feel like God is doing his mighty work for her again!! Praise the Lord!! I just wanted to share this with everyone...thanks for all who have been praying!! I know someone or several have reached the throne of God for us!! Just continue to keep her in your prayers because she is going to continue on with this chemo and the doctors are hoping it will work but God is the one working!!! I just wanted to share this wonderful testimony..and I pray I have more to come concerning mom!! Love each of you!!

Yesterday was one of the longest days of my life!!!

Just like my title says..Yesterday was one of the longest days of my life!! It started out rainy and dreary...I took my mom to have chemo. Mom turned into a human pin cushion. It took 3 nurses and 7 sticks before they could get the IV for the chemo to go in her. At that point I was starting to feel a little skeptical about the whole thing..I was thinking about just telling them I'm taking her home..we'll come back another day..but I didn't..wish I would have. As the day went on she was doing okay..she ate some lunch I had brought her and was doing okay. They then started the second half of her chemo treatment....everything went down hill from there...The Nurse warned us if she started feeling the least bit funny to get her immediately!! We didn't really think much of it because she had had this particular type of chemo several times before. But within about a minute of it going into her system I saw a horrible look on my mothers face!! I asked her if she was okay and all she could get out was "I think I'm going to puke!" I went for the nurse...they pulled her from the chemo and immediately started giving her medication..she started seizing, the nurses called for the Doctor and also started calling a code...I stood there praying out loud for my mom to be okay...It was horrible!! I was so scared!! The Doctor got there and Nurse was screaming out her to wake up, you can't do this!!! I thought we'd lost her!! I really did!! But before they got the code cart to her she began to wake up ON HER OWN!! Thank you Jesus!! My God is REAL!! They watched her for a while and then said she was able to go home..and that they would never give her that kind of chemo again..They said that sometimes people that have had that many cycles of the same chemo can not tolerate it anymore after a certain point...people react to it in several different ways...The nurses were glad I was there to come and get them...I have heard of people having a reaction to chemo and you can see why I was so tore up!! I just am saying all of this to Praise MY LORD!! I know my mom is sick..but I also know that MY GOD HEALS!! He healed her once before and I know he's working on her again!! Please continue to pray for my mom..Anyone that knows her knows how precious of a person she is to everyone!! She's a giver and would give the shoes off her feet to you!! We go next month to see the doctor and find out what they are going to do next....they said they would probably start her on a different kind of chemo...just pray for her...I never want to go through that again with her...It was scary.. I've been up to check on her this morning and she is looking very good and resting!! Pray for her, Her name is Joy Wilcox..Please call her name out in your prayers!! Thanks so much!!

Another day

Today is Wednesday, hump day, middle of the's rainy outside so we are staying in today. Last night we took Taylor to Build A Bear and Toys R Us for her Birthday. She had a blast and got a adorable unicorn at Build A Bear which she named Lucy. She's a Ballerina, Lucy that is...Taylor is a she thinks..LOL!! She then bought a bunk bed for her babies with her B-day money. She is such a girly girl...Haley never did really get into the baby dolls and Barbies the way Taylor has. Taylor is a lot like me in so many ways. I was always playing with dolls and barbies and dress up..all that girly kind of stuff.

Well tonight is's an extra Wed...for us..We are having a BTI service tonight and also business meeting. It's a little past due...but not by much...We've been traveling so much this past month going to our district churches that we've had a hard time fitting it tonights the night. yippee.. LOL!!

This weekend is Youth Convention at Elizabethtown, KY... Very excited!! I get to see some friends out of our region that are going to be visiting that I haven't seen in awhile...really excited about that..they had better not change their mind...(I doubt they will..LOL)

Well guess I'll end this for now...I'm just writing about nothing..just felt like posting...I think I'll go put the gals down for their nap now...write more later.
