the name of Maria.
Her blog is called
BUBBLEGUM AND DUCT TAPE.
Maria is beyond talented...she is
running over with ideas...and I might

You will find it here at
beautiful, miniature book pendants.
Being the sweetie, she is, she said I could
choose any book I wanted.
She told me if I wanted, she would even
make me a Bible.
I chose the Bible...even though I have
failed the Lord so many times, I still try
to live my life according to His Holy Word.
Please look at the detailed stitching around

can write your favorite scripture.
Maria, it is just beautiful.
You are awesome.

for a moment.
My prayers continue for every man, woman,
and child...battling cancer...THEY ARE HEROES.
We had a young man from our town,
Star player on the University of Oklahoma
22 years old...
found dead at the home of a friend
in El Reno, Oklahoma.
I won't say what he died from because
the autopsy reports are not in...
His family is devastated.
The funeral is Thursday, May 26, 2011.
Please remember them in your prayers.
You are very special and I love it when
you stop by for a visit.
