More praising the Lord

In a previous post, I wrote about how my mother and sister in law were spared when they were involved in a wreck. Well, today hubby was in a wreck. On his way to work, his brother was driving when he slid off the road and over the mountain. Praise God he is okay and unharmed. They managed to get the car back in the road and everything is fine now, except maybe the car and their egos. LOL. PRAISE the LORD!!!!

Robert Byrd

Today WV Senator Robert Byrd died. Although his political beliefs may have sometimes differed from mine, I have to give the man his dues. Senator Byrd did hold the most consecutive terms of anyone in office and he also had a very good attendance record with more roll call votes than anyone else in the history of the senate.

From a personal perspective, Senator Byrd was always very prompt on responding to my questions or complaints in regards to his representation. I fully believe that he cared deeply for the people of West Virginia and I also believe he tried very hard to represent them to the best of his ability.

Praising the Lord

Our family is so thankful for God's protection lately. A few weeks ago, my sister in law was going to the local feed store to get some feed for her horses. She went early in the morning because her and her husband was going on a weekend getaway. As she was pulling off another car hit her head on. She is okay. She ended up with some stitches, sprains, scrapes, and bruises. But she is okay and finally able to get around. Her truck is totaled. The guy that hit her had no insurance and a revoked license. He plans to sue her but that is another post. Don't get me started.

Last weekend, I got a call that my mom was in a wreck. She was on her way back from her dad's when she was hit head on. A car crossed into her lane and she went off the road and scraped her passenger side all the way down on a rock cliff. AND the car still hit her head on. The driver got out and accused her of hitting him. Uh, hello, her truck is pinned between a rock cliff and YOUR car. At the accident, she kept loosing consciouses and they took her to the ER. She is okay. She suffered a major concussion and a torn muscle in her arm. She is pretty banged up. She has been referred to a neurologist and may need some PT for her arm. Her truck is totaled.

I still have reason to rejoice though. They are both okay. God was there with them. Actually, my mom was praising the Lord over and over and the EMTs thought that she was delusional from the concussion. LOL God is Good.

Raising Homemakers

Check out this great, new site for future homemakers. I strongly feel that a tide has turned in this country. Women are once again taking up the call to be keepers of the home. Of course, if any are like me, I had no idea how to be a homekeeper. I grew up with my mother working and going to college full time so I didn't really know how to keep a home, cook, or anything else. Now I have a long way to go but I have come pretty far in my abilities over the last few years. But hopefully with websites like this we will have help in training up our own daughters to answer the call of homemaking.

One last thing, Raising Homemakers is having a great giveaway too. So head on over and enter.
