We adopted today! Meet Ringo!

Meet Ringo, the newest member of our family! We adopted Ringo from a rescue shelter today! We miss our beloved Lucy and will always remember the happy times we shared together, but we knew as a family we had rooms in our heart to love another furever friend. This led us on a journey to find Ringo. He’s a 2-year-old 7 lb. chihuahua mix. He is housebroken, is neutered, has had all his shots and has a microchip just in case. He is very trusting and loving. He loves to be cuddled and held and is adjusting to his new home. We are excited to share our home and heart with Ringo and look forward to making many happy memories together as a family. 

We adopted today! Meet Ringo! We adopted today! Meet Ringo!

I Hate Death! I’m devastated! My dog was hit by a car today and died

I’m devastated! My dog was hit by a car today and died.

I’m blaming myself because she was in the backyard and I came in the house for a minute. I went back outside but it was to late. She never left the yard before and only goes out to potty. She was 5 years old. My 13 year old son is grieving. We’ve all been crying all day. I’m in shock and so sad.

She was a member of our family. She slept with my son every night. She traveled with us and even ate dinner when we ate. We buried her in the backyard. I know she was just a dog, but she was a member of our family. I can’t quit crying. She had the sweetest personality and loved helping with the pet reviews I did on my blog.

I hate death!

This is a wakeup call for me to love, hug and appreciate my family and friends because life is so fragile and short. So very short. In one moment in time everything we love and hold dear can be gone.

My sweet baby brought such joy to me and my family and she loved people unconditionally no matter what color the skin or religious beliefs someone held. She didn’t care what car you drove, where you lived or how you dressed or what you looked like or even if you smelled.

She just loved!

We humans have a lot to learn!

So today as I sit here with my heart-broken I want to remember the joy she brought to my family. The cuddles and the comfort she gave to each person she met. I will never forget you sweet baby. If dogs go to Heaven, I know you’re there.

I'm devastated! My dog was hit by a car today and died.

I plan on adding her name to the memorial stone that my daughter purchased today. We buried her in one of her favorite places in the yard.

The best budget friendly home phone plan from Verizon! Yes… #Verizon

I’ve always had a landline as far back as I can remember. My first home phone landline was growing up in the 70′s. You know, the one phone that was on the wall in the kitchen and you had to stretch the cord as far as it would reach to talk in privacy? Yeah, that was the first. Even after cel phones became so popular, I still had a landline. I just couldn’t give them up and still can’t.  

For me, I’ve always wanted a home phone landline in my house just in case of an emergency and believe it or not there are people who don’t own a cel phone. I was one of those until only a few years ago and we all know that cel phones can be expensive, but so can landlines.

I had been with a particular company since I moved out my parents house in 1983. If you’re from the South you’ll know what company I’m talking about, but the prices each year just kept getting higher and higher. So after the price increase last year I decided it was time for a change. So I began my search for a budget friendly home phone plan. And to my surprise I found it with Verizon!

Yes, Verizon!

When I heard they offered a home phone plan for only around $25 a month which included long distance, I had to go see for myself. So off I went to the store and to ask the customer representative what’s the catch? He said there’s no catch. Really? It’s only $25 a month. 

Here’s the proof!

The best budget friendly home phone plan from Verizon! Yes... #Verizon

So I left the store with my wireless Verizon home phone and headed home to give it a try.

The best budget friendly home phone from Verizon

It was so easy to install. With the wireless modem you don’t need a phone jack, just plug it in to an electrical outlet and you’re ready to go. I did want to keep my previous number so I had to leave my other home phone on until the number was changed over. I also wanted to leave it on just in case I didn’t like the Verizon home phone. You know, just in case it dropped calls or I had a bad signal.

Now here I am 8 months later and I’m still using my Verizon home phone. I have no issues and couldn’t be happier. They also offer package deals if you want to bundle your services.

I’m not being paid or being sent gift cards to write this even though that’s always nice. And if you’re feeling sorry or bad for me feel free to send something. LOL!  I just wanted to share my experiences since I’ve always been pretty skeptical when something sounds to good to be true. I’ve included my bill to show you what I actually pay. So if you want the security of having a home phone too, I would highly recommend that you check out Verizon’s Home Phone Plans.

God’s Not Dead Movie Review

Have you ever had your faith tested to the point that you had to make a choice to either decide to stand up for what you believe or deny it? Would you be willing to stand up for God?

In the movie, God’s Not Dead, Present-day college freshman and devout Christian, Josh Wheaton, finds his faith challenged on his first day of Philosophy class by the dogmatic and argumentative Professor Radisson. Radisson begins class by informing students that if they will write God is Dead on a piece of paper they will each receive a passing grade. 

This was the situation that Josh Wheaton finds himself in. 

What would you do? 

God's Not Dead

Josh refuses to write God is Dead and finds himself challenged by Professor Radisson to prove God’s existence. 

Radisson assigns him a daunting task: if Josh will not admit that “God Is Dead,” he must prove God’s existence by presenting well-researched, intellectual arguments and evidence over the course of the semester, and engage Radisson in a head-to-head debate in front of the class. If Josh fails to convince his classmates of God’s existence, he will fail the course and hinder his lofty academic goals. With almost no one in his corner, Josh wonders if he can really fight for what he believes.

Can he actually prove the existence of God?

This is the premise of the movie. The movie also delves into the lives of the people in both Professor Radisson and Josh Wheaton’s lives. 

The ending of this movie will leave you shocked and your heart pounding thinking about what if that was me? Am I ready to die?

It will leave you examining in your own heart what you believe about God. The DVD, God’s Not Dead, would make an excellent witnessing tool to share with your family and friends. This is one of my favorite movies of the year.

I would love for you to check out my article on SheKnows

I would love for you to check out my article on SheKnows: Do You Believe In Life After Death?

I had the awesome opportunity to write a review about the movie, “Is Heaven For Real” and write about what I believe about Life After Death.

Here is an excerpt.

Do You Believe In Life After Death?

I would love for you to check out my article on SheKnows

Bring the tissues. This movie will take your emotions on a roller coaster ride. It is a real tearjerker.

Heaven for me has always been real. You can call it a Southern Church thing, but talking about death and heaven for me was just a normal part of life.

Growing up, death was not something that was hidden from me. It was taught to me as a natural part of life. My best friend’s parents used to take us to wakes and funerals so often that for me they were just as normal as going to the mall or the store.

This normalized for me the reality of life and death. Death wasn’t something to fear. It was only the doorway to something more. And that something more is a place called heaven.

The uncertainty of what lies beyond the grave is a subject of much debate, but it isn’t something that worries me.

For what I know….  Be sure to visit SheKnows to read the rest of the article.

End of Summer Sale at Walmart: Snow Cone Cups, Straws & Syrups Only $1

Summer is over and school is back in session, but it doesn’t mean you can’t still have some fun!

I went to Walmart last night while my son was at his Karate class and ran across a clearance sale for Snow Cone Cups, Straws and Snow Cone Syrup’s in different flavors. Tonight we made some for dessert. These were so yummy! You could also make a slushie. We used our Ninja Blender to make the crushed ice. (Visit this link to see me make snow!)
