Prayer Quote

“I pray because I can't help myself. I pray because I'm helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time- waking and sleeping. It doesn't change God- it changes me.”
― C. S. Lewis


I believe in the sun even when it's not shining. I believe in love even when I don't feel it. And I believe in God even when He is silent. (quote found on the wall of a concentration camp)

Erika's Gift FINALLY Arrived!

This has been a long, drawn out birthday for Miss Erika! :)
Her birthday was on Father's day, and we had a blast over the long weekend going to Galveston Beach.  
But her main birthday gift had not arrived on time!

We decided to make her cake yesterday, but because she requested a "Chocolate Coffee Cheesecake" we cooked it yesterday and ate it today!

So here is the saga of the birthday gift! :)

I was  taking a nap.... 

And it turned out to be an auto part! :) LOL


So yesterday, we made her cake and let it cool overnight! She wanted a Chocolate Coffee Cheese Cake which turned out rather wonderful by the way. :)


And then today.... ANOTHER package arrived.... I thought the box looked rather large... 
but hey.... we couldn't tell who it was from:  SO she opened it:
 It was a T shirt she won from a contest she entered! LOL

 And then.... FED EX pulled up.... and they delivered a small package!
 The anticipation was palpable!

 Poor sweetie  has scrapes on her hands from a nasty fall today. :(
It finally arrived!   It is an  Ipod Shuffle with her name engraved on it.  In purple! :)  I think she likes it. :)

Yay! She really got three surprise packages!
I'm sure the ipod will be put through it's paces soon. I love listening to mine when I'm doing chores.
