"Twas The Night Before Jesus Came"

'Twas the night before Jesus came and all through the house Not a creature was praying, not one in the house. Their Bibles were lain on the shelf without care In hopes that Jesus would not come there. The children were dressing to crawl into bed. Not once ever kneeling or bowing a head.And Mom in her rocker with baby on her lap Was watching the Late Show while I took a nap. When out of the East there arose such a clatter. I sprang to my feet to see what was the matter. Away to the window I flew like a flash, Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash! When what to my wondering eyes should appear But angels proclaiming that Jesus was here. With a light like the sun sending forth a bright ray I knew in a moment this must be THE DAY! The light of His face made me cover my head It was Jesus! returning just like He had said. And though I possessed worldly wisdom and wealth, I cried when I saw Him in spite of myself. In the Book of Life which He held in His hand Was written the name of every saved man. He spoke not a word as He searched for my name; When He said "it's not here" my head hung in shame. The people whose names had been written with love He gathered to take to His Father above. With those who were ready He rose without a sound. While all the rest were left standing around. I fell to my knees, but it was too late; I had waited too long and thus sealed my fate. I stood and I cried as they rose out of sight; Oh, if only I had been ready tonight. In the words of this poem the meaning is clear; The coming of Jesus is drawing near. There's only one life and when comes the last call We'll find that the Bible was true after all!

Alot of things have happened lately...

My husband got hurt and has been out of a job since April 16th. So things have changed quite a bit around here. First we had to move to a less expensive place which has more land and alot less money, but it was not fenced in and we did not have the money to do it. So we had to sell our horses, but not until one of our dogs killed 6 or 7 of our chickens. So we got rid of that dog! We now have only 1 dog and 4 chickens and 1 rooster left.

The house is an old farm house, 5 bedrooms but only 1 bathroom. We put ALOT of work into it, but it really looks good now,  at least on the inside. The outside still has alot of work to be done to it.

Roy goes back to the doctor on Thursday and hopefully he can start back to work again. I am trying to find work online or even take a course online and get me a degree of some kind!?!
