I believe in prayer. I just completed the Daniel Fast. I petitioned the Lord to free my children of their addictions. In earnest, I told the Lord to cleanse my home of all addictions. I prayed that he would cleanse me as well....I loathe usage of any form, but wanted a closer walk with the Lord. Sometime in that 21 days, I noticed I have not played my favorite Facebook game, Farmville, and my actual time on Facebook is about 5 or 6 minutes a couple of times a day.....not a couple of hours....Meanwhile, my children are still smoking....Back to my knees.

This morning it was -2 degrees with a windchill of -15....that's negative 15...Brrrrrr. At 3:00 pm., it is only 14. It has been a beautiful day. The sun is shining, and I believe the term is: fair. We have snow cover, so it is WINTER. So many of our friends and acquaintances have died over the past year. A old friend Esther Johnson died suddenly in the night. It is getting quite disconcerting; we are both 74 years old.A fried of mine died of cancer a couple of years ago. Since then, my best friend, maid of honor in my wedding died this fall. She had cancer, but many other health issues were the cause, as the cancer was not life threatening at the time. Currently, 7 friends and acquaintances have cancer. We are living only by God's grace. March 7, 2014, my daughters apartment caught fire. Since then, she and her 2 children have been living with us. Skylar is 16. I can't believe he will be 17 on Feb. 7th. Austin was 11 July 10th. His Pappaw's birthday is the 15th. We have a big party. August 30th, my oldest son came home. He will be 48 Feb. 11th, sso there will be another party. Some may think our parties are boring, but there will be plenty of food, non-alcoholic drinks and laughter. My family is my life. I will have to admit, having a full house again is sometimes challenging, with so many personalities. In spite of that, hubby and I have thoroughly enjoyed having them here.
