Thanksgiving Dinner at work

Today was our Thanksgiving Dinner here at work and we had more food than we had people. Except for the Dressing and the Chicken and Dumplings, all of those were gone. I made the dressing and Lovell made the Dumplings. Mr. Bill and Mr. Tony our Boss's said my dressing was really good, it really gave me a boost, especially when both dishes were gone. (Smile) I love cooking for other people and pleasing them with food. It made all the hard work last night worth it. One of the young men in the IT dept made a pumpkin cheese cake from scratch and it was really good. He is an excellent cook. I think he grows 10 inches when we bragg on his cooking which is really good. I have a lot to be thankful for....all my friends and my family and for the love of Jesus. Holiday's are sad for me since both of our Mothers are gone, it will be a wonderful Thanksgiving when we meet them one day. To get off the sad note I am off work tomorrow to help me get ready for Thursday, and that is always good.

My husband will be home tomorrow night, not as soon as we had hoped but anytime safe and sound is good. Everyone have a wonderful day Thursday!

Steve's Christmas Brunch

I made it to the Christmas Brunch that is before Thanksgiving due to all the Terminals they have to travel to, and Mike wants to be at all of them. It was a touching speech that he gave, he talked about the accident that one of the new owner operator's (2 weeks) hit a school bus......1 little one died and the rest were hurt but physically will be ok in time but mentally....who knows. All because the driver didn't have enought sleep.....people were hero's stopping to help pull children out of the bus...... Steve's Company who had good safety rules have put in place a lot of safety rules and the computer knows how long they drive. If they don't take their break the computer starts beeping and if they were to ignore it they call. It means your job if you don't run correctly and I am sure glad, Safety first. I think that was the worse accident since 1980. Mike and his wife went to the funeral and he said if you want reality, then see the Mom and Dad and all the family.....at their daughters funeral...all because the driver didn't sleep enough, trying to make money, Like Mike said you can make money driving legally and not endangering people. People are so much more important.
Not a dry eye in the house. Mine are still wet! Comtrack has always been proud of their safety record. I have always been afraid of big trucks, My Grandmother and Aunt Millie Sue got killed on Christmas Eve 1960. The guy ran a red light trying to get home for Christmas. So trucks accidents really touch me. I didn't want Steve to drive OTR but sometimes you have to do what you have to do.
I didn't get to sit on Santa's knee so you will have to do without the pictures! Ha ha!

Steve is on his way home from his last run, we haven't seen him all week. He had to go to Memphis to pick up his new Truck, (Pictures to follow) Brinkley will eat him up with kisses since he hasn't seen him all week. Steve called and wanted to know where was the last place Brinkley walked and I told him and he said oh well I will have to walk over the whole neighborhood (smile) after getting my face washed! hahaha

Sunday is Steve's work Christmas Brunch.....They have so many that our's is always before Thanksgiving....they have drawings and safety awards....I hope we win something good this year or just anything at all. Santa will be there, I never sit on his knee but I might just do that this year. (smile) If I do I will post the pictures just in case I break Santa's knee and he can't deliver gifts this year. :)

He is God

~He Is God~

He is the First and Last,
The Beginning and the End!
He is the keeper of Creation and the Creator of all!
He is the Architect of the universe and the Manager of all times.
He always was, He always is, and He always will be ...
unmoved, Unchanged, Undefeated, and never Undone!

He was bruised and brought healing!
He was pierced and eased pain!
He was persecuted and brought freedom!
He was dead and brought life!
He is risen and brings power!
He reigns and brings Peace!
The world can't understand him,
The armies can't defeat Him,
The schools can't explain Him, and The leaders can't ignore Him.
Herod couldn't kill Him, The Pharisees couldn't confuse Him, and The people couldn't hold Him!
Nero couldn't crush Him, Hitler couldn't silence Him,
The New Age can't replace Him, and "Oprah" can't explain Him away!

He is light, love, longevity, and Lord.
He is goodness, Kindness, Gentleness, and God.
He is Holy, Righteous, mighty, powerful, and pure.

His ways are right,
His word is eternal,
His will is unchanging, and His mind is on me.
He is my Savior,
He is my guide, and He is my peace!
He is my Joy,
He is my comfort,
He is my Lord, and He rules my life!

I serve Him because His bond is love,
His burden is light, and His goal for me is abundant life.
I follow Him because He is the wisdom of the wise,
the power of the powerful,
the ancient of days, the ruler of rulers, the leader of leaders, the overseer of the overcomers, and is to come. And if that seems impressive to you, try this for size.

His goal is a relationship with ME!
He will never leave me,
never forsake me,
never mislead me,
never forget me,
never overlook me and
never cancel my appointment in His appointment book!

When I fall, He lifts me up!
When I fail, He forgives!
When I am weak, He is strong!
When I am lost, He is the way!
When I am afraid, He is my courage!
When I stumble, He steadies me!
When I am hurt, He heals me!
When I am broken, He mends me!
When I am blind, He leads me!
When I am hungry, He feeds me!
When I face trials, He is with me!
When I face persecution, He shields me!
When I face problems, He comforts me!
When I face loss, He provides for me!
When I face Death, He carries me Home!

He is everything for everybody everywhere, every time, and every way.
He is God, He is faithful. I am His, and He is mine!
My Father in heaven can whip the father of this world.
So, if you're wondering why I feel so secure, understand this...
He said it and that settles it.
God is in control, I am on His side,
and that means all is well with my soul.

Everyday is a blessing for GOD Is!

Judge Roy Moore's Poem

America The Beautiful
by Judge Roy Moore

America the Beautiful or so you used to be Land of the Pilgrims' pride, I'm glad they'll never see Babies piled in dumpsters, Abortion on demand, Oh, sweet land of liberty, your house is on the sand. Our children wander aimlessly poisoned by cocaine, Choosing to indulge their lusts, when God has said abstain. From sea to shining sea, our Nation turns away From the teaching of God's love and a need to always pray. So many worldly pastors tell lies about our Rock, Saying God is going broke, so they can fleece the flock. We've kept God in our temples, how callous we have grown, When earth is but His footstool and Heaven is His throne. We've voted in a government that is rotting at the core, Appointing Godless Judges who throw reason out the door. Too soft to place a killer in a well deserved tomb, But brave enough to kill a baby before he leaves the womb.You think that God's not angry that our land's a moral slum?How much longer will He wait before His judgment comes? How are we to face a God from Whom we cannot hide? What then is left for us to do, but stem this evil tide? If we who are His children will humbly turn and pray, Seek His holy face and mend our evil way, Then God will hear from Heaven and forgive us of our sins, He will heal our sickly land and all who live within.But America the Beautiful if you don't, then you will see, A sad but Holy God withdraw His hand from thee.
