I just keep on praying, Lord, and just keep on living."

Now, it's YOUR turn!!!



  1. LOL, Joann, I'm thinking you really enjoy your Disneyland annual passport (we must meet there this year!!)

    good for Chris graduating and in college!!! that is a big achievement for both of you!!!

    this is what helped me a lot about our present president; God is in control and allowed it for whatever reason; we need to trust in Him and we need to respect our authorities since they were placed there by God (I know, this is a tough one for me)

    Derek Jeter calls me all the time; I'll see if it is okay to give out his number to you (j/k) (seriously, he calls me but I'm not sure I want him to have any other friends but me :) (just kidding; I don't even know what he looks like but I know he plays baseball :)

    its hard when those kids want to be with their friends over us, isn't it :(

    Happy New Year!! (I'm serious, we need to get together this year; we need to set a date and do it! that being said, the end of January or February looks promising for me)


  2. Okay, let me guess.. You like Derek Jeter? I don't have his number but I sell his cologne! lol...cute answers.

  3. I read The Shack too and loved it. Hope your New year is the greatest!

  4. So what's the deal with Derek Jeter? An annual pass to "The Land" huh? Now that sounds like fun. I'm 2/3's of the way thru "The Shack" for some reason I geot a little bogged down in it. Linda up here in Washington

  5. Sounds like you like DisneyLad. hehe. I enjoy Disney world, but its closer to me. hehe

  6. Hey there Joann,
    Derek Jeter called and said he couldn't make it because you only got annual Disneyland passes for you and Chris... something about "three's a crowd". And I'm like you in that I only have ONE LOVED the Shack. It really impacted me greatly. If you ever decide to go see a movie this month, I recommend "The Blindside" with Sandra Bullock. True story AND they portray Christians in a postive light. Who new Hollyweird could do such a thing??

    Happy 2010 Joann,

  7. I love how you love to have your picture taken. Now, that's promising! I guess this Meme is going around because I did it last week. XX

  8. Great meme. I love #6!!!! Take good care & I hope 2010 brings you everything you want!
