Some would gather money
Along the path of life;
Some would gather roses,
And rest from worldly strife.

But I would gather children
From among the thorns of sin;
I would seek a golden curl,
And a freckled, toothless grin.

For money cannot enter
In that land of endless day;
And roses that are gathered
Soon will wilt along the way.

But, oh, the laughing children,
As I cross the sunset sea,
And the gates swing wide to heaven -
I can take them in with me.

Jumping in with two feet....

Many of you know that I am all about "real" food. Making it the quickest way and the way that our bodies will digest it the best and get the best nutrients. Many things that you buy in the store have numerous ingredients and really only need to have a few but in my case it has traveled from where ever in the US to Germany and then to the UK. Of course, it will have all kinds of stuff in it so it will last that long.

Today I have started the "starter" for sour dough bread. I am kind of excited. It takes a week just to do the starter before I can even bake with it. I will let you know how it goes..

Here are a few things that I make that really don't take much time at all....
Cream of Chicken Soup (or mushroom, celery)
Whipped Topping (Cool-whip)
Tarter Sauce

Cheers to health!

Here are a few picutres of the children this fall. Sarah is very into legos right now and she is silly. Bethany is getting big and into everything. Cory likes his sports and knows how to hit a ball pitched by daddy. I also thought you might enjoy this picture of a very foggy English day.

Things God won't ask on that day...

1.... God won't ask what kind of car you drove. He'll ask how many people you drove who didn't have transportation..

2.... God won't ask the square footage of your house, He'll ask how many people you welcomed into your home.

3.... God won't ask about the clothes you had in your closet, He'll ask how many you helped to clothe.

4.... God won't ask what your highest salary was. He'll ask if you compromised your character to obtain it.

5.... God won't ask what your job title was. He'll ask if you performed your job to the best of your ability.

6.... God won't ask how many friends you had. He'll ask how many people to whom you were a friend.

7.... God won't ask in what neighborhood you lived, He'll ask how you treated your neighbors.

8.... God won't ask about the color of your skin, He'll ask about the content of your character.

9.... God won't ask why it took you so long to seek S alvation. He'll lovingly take you to your mansion in heaven, and not to the gates of Hell.
