A Pearly Video

I think it must be like a mama with her new baby on the "lite" version. If there's anything that would bring me back to blogging, it's showing adorable pictures and videos of our new puppy! Enjoy this one from last night...

Meet Pearly!

Well, after nearly of year of being without a dog, we get to bring home our new Great Pyrenees puppy, "Pearl" today! It's been a long time coming, but thanks be to God and the wonderful folks at Windy Acres Farm, Pearl was waiting just for us.

It was totally unexpected - we hadn't even been looking for a puppy for a little while now. Seemed like it was going to be a big expense and a long haul to find the puppy we wanted. But, the Lord orchestrated our meeting the Apple family last Saturday and low and behold they had one little girl left and sure enough she was meant to come live on Praise Mountain.

Thank you Debbie and family and to Pearl's mama Angel for this adorable little treasure!
We are so happy to have a Pyr back up on the mountain!

Happy Mother's Day!

I had to make one of my now rare appearances to wish my mother a very happy mother's day. She is one of my dearest friends and I treasure her life with all my heart.

On a more witty note, my friend Sarah at Loved Like The Church posted this video the other day and it had me laughing out loud. Here's a shout out to all you mini-van moms - rock your swagger wagons on this Mother's Day!!!

I'm baaaaaaaaack...

But only for a quicky and it's a really good one. Remember that I blogged last November about losing our Great Pyr? Well, we've found the most outstanding breeder up in Minnesota - incredible Christian people. Anyway, I had to pass on a link to Sarah's blog (great name, eh?) so you can follow all the news about the sweet puppies, organic gardening, healthy lifestyle, and Christian inspiration she gives.

New Year's Resolution

I know, nobody likes to talk about these. I think it's because we've all made so many knowing that we'd never really follow through on them. Then there's the ones that we made VOWING we would follow through with them, but still didn't. The truth is, it takes a quality decision ANY time of the year that you really want to change something in your life. From little things like "I'm going to brush the dog everyday." To important things like, "I'm going to get in shape and eat right." And then the truly eternal things like, "I'm going to share the Gospel with at least 4 people a month."

I'm making some changed in my life throughout the year. In fact, I made changes throughout 2009 and along with using keys like accountability partners and journaling, the most important part of truly changing is brokenness before God and realizing that without Him, I can do nothing (John 15:5).

I hope that in 2010 you'll really make the changes you've been shooting for. The changes that really mean something. Proverbs 13:12 says, "Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but [when] the desire cometh, [it is] a tree of life." Don't make your heart sick in 2010 with more hopes deferred. Use the power of desire and obtain your tree of life!

One last thing - one of my resolutions in 2010 is to abandon my blog. Yes, this will be my last entry here except for the occasional, "Y'all have got to see this!!!" I never started this to obtain followers or have any business contacts. I just wanted to hang out with some of my friends and keep in touch. I think I'm going to do that FOR REAL and not over a B L O G. So happy new year and I'm signing off... SP
