On the Road Again
Mood:  a-ok
Topic: Family

I'm not a big Willie Nelson fan, but I do like that song. Partly because I enjoy traveling and we are on the road back home after a busy week in New Jersey visiting my sister, nephew and Mom.

I posted about Mom a few days ago. She did get a little better. There were some days that she did know me, then some days that she wasn't sure. There were even some odd days. Like today when we went in to say goodbye. She waved as we walked in as if she knew who we were. After we got done saying our hellos and giving our hugs, she even asked if we were on our way home. She even made the statement that the boys were getting so big. Later, though, she began to stare at Sarah so Sarah asked if she knew who she was. Mom said "No". Then I asked if she knew who I was. Again she said "No". We patiently explained who we were and when I said I was Timmy her youngest son, she said "I know you" then we asked "do you remember where we live?" To which she said "Tennessee!" So, sometimes she is very lucid and other times she is very forgetful. And those times can come and go within minutes. It is still hard, but encouraging that she does know us at times.

We finally got on the road about 1:30 pm during a snow shower. Our travels so far have been fairly uneventful except for us loading the topper to heavy on one side. It kept making us feel like we were going to tip over so we made a stop to repack the topper more evenly. The late start meant only making it to just outside of Washington DC. We are staying at a very nice Holiday Inn with wonderful service. They even gave us free breakfasts when they found out that it was our first time staying there. The wonderful heated pool was the icing on the cake. 

Must get to bed though, Another long day tomorrow. We are going to try to make it as far as Grandma's house outside of Knoxville. It should take us about 8 hours or so. I'm sure there will be more adventures to tell you about in my next post!

On the road again. I just can't wait to get on the road again.

Thursday's Child - Steven Van Kranenburg Meets His Sponsored Child
Mood:  happy
Topic: Compassion International

Recently my friend Kees sent me a video of Steven Van Kranenburg, a Christian worship leader, meeting his sponsored child for the first time. It is a very touching video that I think exemplifies what Compassion International is all about. Here it is:



I also wanted to give you an update on Mwende Mumbe, our Christmas Child. As of the writing of this post, we still have not found a sponsor for her, but Compassion has given us until the end of January to find a sponsor before our Christmas Child's portfolio goes back into the hands of Compassion International to continue to try to find a sponsor. Although I know that God has a specific sponsor for Mwende, and that she will be sponsored in His timing, nothing would thrill me more than to be the one to find the sponsor for her. Would you please continue to pray for Mwende? Pray even for your possible role in sponsoring Mwende or another child. Remember, I have several copies of her portfolio that I could send to you if you request it. Sending the portfolio would not obligate you to sponsor her, it would just give you more information about her so that you can pray more specifically. Here is the link to my previous post about Mwende. If you feel that God is leading you to perhaps sponsor her, or if you would like for me to send you the portfolio, please leave me a comment below or you can email me at tink38570@yahoo.com. Thanks for your continued prayers.

Tuesday Toolbox
Mood:  energetic
Topic: Blog Carnivals!


It's my weekly Tuesday Toolbox post, and I can guarantee it is like nothing else I have ever posted. Watch the movie first, then I'll explain Laughing!



I found this on another blog today and immediately thought it would be a great homeschooling tool. Since most people now days have a computer in the home, and since www.xtranormal.com is free, then I figured it would be great for this week's Tuesday's Toolbox. It is easy to use and is a real hoot! Have fun everyone.

Men's Monday Meme - Question 4
Mood:  happy
Topic: Men's Monday Meme


Can you believe that we are on our fourth question? I have really enjoyed hosting this meme and all of the great feedback it has received. Even though it seems like it has had a slow start, the Men's Monday Meme has generated a lot of interest, and I'm sure that it will grow. 

Now for the new question of the week!

 How do you divide up the work at home? Do you help out with housework?

All right, so it's two questions, but they go together. I have heard many families say that the outside is the man's, and the inside is the lady's. In other words, anything that involves the outside of the house - mowing, painting, landscaping, etc. is the husband's responsibility. The inside - cleaning, redecorating, cooking, etc. is the wife's responsibility. They are in no way trying to dictate what should or shouldn't be a man's job or a woman's job, that's just the way they divide the work. How do you all divide the work at home. Do you do some of the housework? Do you cook? Do you have a special housework job like the dishes or the laundry? This could be a heated topic, before you discuss it with one another perhaps you should make a New Year's resolution to get along this year with no fighting Smile

Don't forget the rules:

  1. This is a man's meme, so the answers must be the answers from a man. Either the man can answer on his blog, or a wife can interview her husband for her blog. However, if the wife puts it on her blog, she must stay true to what her husband said.
  2. You are encouraged to put one of the Men's Monday Meme buttons found to the left on your blog. Just copy the code below the button of your choice. The more folks who link, the more readers you may have to visit your blog.
  3. You may answer the question any time during the week up through next Monday. After you answer the question, add the address to your post to the Mr.Linky below. If you could, please only add the direct link to the post to make it easier for readers to find the entry.
  4. My answer along with a new question will be posted next Monday. The new Mr. Linky will be added at midnight Monday night.

Here's Mr. Linky -
