Random Pictures!

Just thought I would load up some random pictures I have taken lately. The first couple are family pics from our trip. They were taken in Arkansas at the Mid-America Museum. I wish I had more pictures of us all together but I guess you get what you can.

Now here are some pics I took of random things in the yard. The first is a pic of a Praying Mantis on our rose bush out front that John bought during the beginning of summer. The bush puts out Very Pretty roses and there have been a lot of Praying Mantis's out at the house this summer and fall so far. The other two are just pics of some of the roses that had bloomed on the bush. The last one is a picture of the sunset that I just happened to think was pretty one night I was driving to work. It all makes me smile and think of the beauty God has created all around us and how so much of it is taken for granted. We sometimes need to take the time to just smell the roses.

Hope You Enjoy!!!!

My FireFighter Husband!!!

I am not sure if everyone knows, but John is a Volunteer FireFighter for our town, Fairview, AL. They are given a radio that they keep with them at the times when it is possible for them to go and assist with fires and car wrecks. John has also taken several classes that has allowed him to become a Certified First Responder for medical calls. The radio thing takes A LOT to get used to, especially when it goes off at 2am. It gets even worse when you remember that you are not getting paid for it. There are also times, like just recently, when someone wants to do a controlled burn or wants to burn something big that they call the fire department and they go and do it for them. A couple of weeks ago someone wanted to burn down an old mobile home and John and another volunteer, Harry Knight, went out to do it. The boys really wanted to go watch Daddy burn something so we went out for a little bit and I was able to snap some pictures while we were there. Here are a few of them.

I just wanted to take the time to talk about my wonderful husband! He works very hard and is a blessing in my life and in the lives of our two terrific boys. We are very thankful that we have each other and are looking forward to all that God has in store for our lives!!!!
