Thankful Thursday 5

 There are a lot of things lately that made me feel bad about myself, and I told the Lord that I do not ever want to be a miserable person. I choose to be happy and stay quiet.  God is gracious enough to grant my prayers. I have some uncertainty about my future,  but I do not want to worry about it and just give it to the Lord. He knows my fears and understands them.  He has ways to calm my doubts and concerns. I want to be thankful everyday, not just Thursday for all the things He has done and is going to do in my life. If you want to be encouraged, please visit Thankful Thursday.

Home Security Benton

Whether you are moving to a new place or living at your home for 30 years, you have got to have an ALARM system installed. Everybody needs a sense of security, especially today when home invasions are becoming rampant. You do not want all your valuable belongings  be taken away  from you leaving you with the feeling of being violated that would stay for a long, long time. These burglars are greedy and brutal. They do not respect a person and are not considerate or sympathetic to anyone.  They want something from you,  rich or poor as you may be; they don't care.  They do not care about your needs; they don't care if you have little babies  at home or  if you are 82 years old, sick and alone.

This is the right time to install a system alarm.  Home Security Benton  offers  24 hours and seven days a week monitored surveillance with door/window sensors that can detect even the slightest movement. It offers video surveillance that watches your home day and night, documenting everything for when you need it in the future. Having ADT at your home also detects the presence of carbon monoxide. This is something you have to take seriously. You don't want to expose yourself and your family to this deadly, odorless gas. This  harmful gas can cause permanent illness and damage to your body and health or even death.

It is extremely stressful to be always on guard. Worry can steal your happiness and limit your enjoyment of life. Give your worry to ADT. Call today and get security.  One of the things you can enjoy more now is doing something you've always been wanting to do and that is to watch your favorite sports and you can also watch unlimited movies too on  Direct TV.

Wednesday White 1

This is my first participation  in Wednesday Whites. I know it is summer, but I can't find anything white to post except these shots that were taken last winter.   I have never seen anything as white as snow.  It reminds me of the song " What can wash us pure as snow, nothing but the blood of Jesus."

What better way to welcome summer than climbing the tree! 
My participation in  Mellow yellow Monday.  

Happy Fathers Day!

His relationship to the Lord attracted me to him. His commitment to his ministry as a teacher caused me to admire him more. His loyalty, honesty, and integrity made me love him the most.  His name is Will, my husband, the love of my life, and the daddy of my kids.

Happy Fathers Day. You are the best!

Gold coins and Gold bullion

My husband is a big fan of collecting coins.  He has hundreds of them. I asked him why he likes to collect them.  He said that it's an investment, and that it is something he can pass on to our kids. I used to tease him that I would take all his coins and spend them at yard sales. He would just smile and say, "You wouldn't."  I eventually stopped my teasing because I realized how much the coins  meant to him.

This Father's day, I wanted to buy something special for him,  something that I know he would appreciate, for the celebration of Father's day.  I went online to see what's in there for my dear husband  and landed at Gold Bullion. This caught my eyes . Aha! I found the perfect gift!  but wait; why so expensive? Here's why. The coins are made of gold. That make sense.  The more I read,  the more I learned why gold coins are such a valuable investment. Investing in gold bullion coins  can help you feel more certain about the future, and this would actually calm fears of what might happen to the economy tomorrow.

The Market stocks and some other investments fluctuate because of the price of gold. This is something I did not know before.  Inflation, gas prices, bank failures and defaults of loans have created tremendous uncertainty and financial insecurity.  Like  the rest of the American families, we are extremely concerned about the environment which is adding to economic instability due to the many .  If you are to buy  bullion, you are confident that the value would increase in years to come. Like my husband said, you could pass it on to your kids to help them have a more secure future financially.  The infallibility is unquestionable. Even governments can’t reduce the value of  gold. Gold American Eagles give rise to bullion coins. This is the best pension that you ever want to consider.  Gold is the greatest and the most valuable assets you can find, and that is why investors are purchasing gold IRA's.  If you began with $25,000 in 2000, it would have grown to $26,853 by 2002, $40,817 by 2004, $50,289 by 2006, and $74,777 by 2007. 

I didn't want to keep this from my husband.  I decided to tell him and talk to him about this. I am seriously considering  buying gold bullion. This is the ultimate asset that I can invest for my family and especially for my kids. This is now more about the whole family's day  gift for Father's day.

Skywatch Friday 13


My entry for Skywatch Friday What do you think this is? It's a work of art and a reminder of the technological world in which we live.  Silhouetted against a bright blue sky outside Washington, D.C., this piece of modern art drew my attention and inspired my imagination.  I could not resist taking this photograph.

Bathroom Mirror Medicine and Linen Cabinets

We had a chance to visit  our friends,  Tracey and Rick's home last Wednesday.  I saw that  they were replacing a new fence in their back yard. Rick seems to work unceasingly to improve  their home. Last summer he built their deck in the back, and it's really nice. Tracey showed us their newly renovated master bedroom, and I was amazed by the transformation. Rick is really good about taking care of their house, making sure that everything is in excellent condition.  He has replaced many things since they bought the place, such as cabinets and toilet bowls in their bathrooms.

Last night I visited http://www.become.com/ where  I found a large number of beautiful  bathroom linen cabinets, and mirror medicine cabinets. They have all the different styles and colors to suit to your liking and theme. Perhaps you are replacing your bathroom's mirror medicine cabinets or linen cabinets with more stylish and yet affordable designs. I think that this is the right place for you to look. I learned that the products are made from companies that are serving and providing the best quality cabinets in the country. This really gives you a feeling of assurance knowing where your things came from and their quality.
I also found a lot of comforter set on this site, I was excited to see that they have plenty of my favorite purple queen comforter set, with different shades of purple to match your preference coordinating with the wall color and furniture in your bedroom. There are different sizes,  of course: king, queen, twin and double. Most importantly, you can choose the fabric that is right for you. One of the exciting parts is that they have a lot of comforter sets that are on SALE right now.

We all want to shop for the best prices in the store, and yet many of us are not satisfied with the quality of the products. It is also very tiring to drive around to hunt  for the perfect thing. I hope that this would give you some help in avoiding the hassle you are facing now in discovering the perfect product for your home.

Getting bro on line

Guest post written by my buddy Aldo Mays

My brother hates technology, but when he graduated school a few years ago I made him buy a laptop. I even helped him set up a Facebook account, but he's yet to do anything on it unless I'm around to help. It would be a big deal but he also hates talking on the phone, so I'm trying to convince him that e-mailing is a really good way for us to stay in touch. I did some research on wireless Internet at a site called http://www.wirelessinternetproviders.net/coverage/ and I found a plan that I think will work well for him. His biggest complaint is that he's always on the go but if I get him broadband Internet he can't use that excuse anymore. I know my parents would love keep up with him a little more often and I for one hate it when he's out of touch for a long time. We used to be so close when he was little but it's much harder now that we live on opposite coasts. Hopefully the Internet connection will help!

Ana, my friend at school, gave me  two scrub tops. At first I  thought that was so funny because I would still probably have to wait two years to wear them. But I was so touched by her generosity and her thoughtfulness.  I know that one of these days I will be wearing them as a professional. I remember one time when my auntie,  who just started a job as a nurse at Mercy Hospital in Baltimore, complained how she hated her scrub uniform and was wondering, actually  hoping  that  I could fix it.  I make bags and dolls as a hobby but I do not know how to fix dresses, much less professional uniforms.

I really do understand now why she was really upset with her scrub uniform. To be honest, you really need an excellent and reliable people  to make your uniforms,  people who understand your need as a woman, not just the feeling of being comfortable with what you are wearing, but also the feeling of wearing something that makes you feel good about yourself. It is going to be hard for me to work if I do not like what I am wearing.  I found this site  http://www.blueskyscrubs.com/categories/Scrubs/Scrubs-for-Women/  Their scrub tops and bottoms actually are attractive and look very comfortable at the same time. I can imagine myself wearing one of them. They have scrubs for men, women and for kids.  They also have scrub hats and caps with different colors to choose from.  You can also find jackets,  laboratory gowns and girls' favorite things, accessories. 

You really do not have to go to the store to find a scrub uniform that perfectly fits you. Blueskyscrub.com has everything you need.  I can attest to the fact that it is easier to just sit down and relax and let your fingers do the shopping.

Kindle is a perfect gift for Fathers Day!

 Are you looking a gift  for your husband  for this Fathers day?  You don't have to look further. Just find him a Kindle. Last Christmas, I bought my husband a Kindle. This is so far the most beautiful thing that he has ever received from me because  he is just crazy about it! I asked him what he likes about Kindle, and these are his answers:  The Kindle is fantastic because of its convenience; it is small enough to place in one's pocket to read while the boys play in the mall playground and the wife shops.  It can be taken on vacation for those down times when one has nothing to do but read, and it is a great little companion while one is waiting to see the doctor.  Although it is very small and lightweight, it has the capacity to hold an enormous amount of reading material.  Another benefit of the Kindle is that many of the books may be bought at a fraction of their price in a bookstore.  Many books may be purchased either free or at a nominal charge of less than $2.00.  Not only does this little device allow me to carry my books around with me, it also relieves me of the problem of having too many books on my shelves at home.  I even have a version of the Bible downloaded on my Kindle.

Snake in the yard

I was really happy that I finally cleaned half of my flower bed. That, of course, was completed with the help of my hubby and my two boys. Interestingly enough, we found snakes.  I am a little bit dramatic when I see a snake. If I am alone, I choose to be quiet since I don't have an audience to entertain, but if hubby is around, I would scream! Ha ha! I am a funny mom. I remember one hot summer day three years ago, when I was hanging clothes in the backyard with my son Matt nearby playing with his ball. I heard him ask me a question.
Matt: "Mommy, do you like snakes?"
Mommy: "No, I don't. They are nasty." I was being honest with him and later on thought, I shouldn't be so honest too much because I don't want him to dislike snakes too.
Mommy: "Hmm, why did you ask?"
Matt: "There's a black snake behind you."
I did not scream but I could feel my heart beat rising. I slowly turned around, and sure enough, there's the 3 foot black snake just a few inches from where I stood. I quickly scooped Matt up and ran as fast as I could in the opposite direction. I asked Matt about it when we were inside the house.

Mommy: " Was the snake there the whole time? "
Matt: "Yes."
Mommy: "Why didn't you tell me? I could have stepped on it."
Matt: " I did; I told you."

I didn't finish hanging clothes. Hubby did it when he got home from work. Later on that night, he told Matt and me that black snakes are harmless. In fact, they would run away when they see humans. They are also good snakes, and they eat mice. Why didn't he run away when he saw us standing very close to him. He must be blind not to see us. Hubby did not have any answer to that. It took me a long time before I hung clothes in the back yard again, and Matt decided he didn't like snake at all, but he said they were fascinating creatures.
