We're Back!

After a a long hiatus, we have decided to resume blogging about our adventures and how we feel about the goings on in today's world. One thing that perplexes my wife and I is the increasing number of people who blog about their daily lives and how  many people  follow them in return and are inspired by them.
As I have gone through life, I have noticed a constant and unchanging truth about people. In my opinion, I have noticed that  all people really want in life is to be needed and feel that they are needed and loved. No matter who you are, you have at one point felt lost, alone, and in need of comfort or reassurance. I can tell you from personal experience that feeling that you don't matter or are not needed is one of the most lonely feelings in the world.
If  anyone reading this blog is currently struggling with feelings of loneliness or loss, feel you that you are not needed or loved, listen to me now. You ARE needed, wanted and loved. I know for a surety that  Heavenly Father loves you with a love that you cannot begin to understand. He made you and loves you with every fiber of His being. I hope as you continue to live with faith and hope in God, that you will begin to understand this. Have a wonderful day and know that God loves you.

Saint Lukes, AVON, and Dollar Tree shopping experience

Hi!

For the past month,Jamie and I have been volunteering at Saint Luke's Rehabilitation Institute. We help in the inventory department by putting bar code stickers on medical equipment. We volunteer two days a week and we really enjoy our job.

Since January, Jamie has been selling AVON. She has a hard time ordering product through the computer, so I take care of the technical side of the business. Jamie really enjoys selling AVON and I am happy to help where I can.

Just the other day, we went shopping at a local Dollar Tree. We had never been there and we were really impressed with the selection they had,the quality and variety of products they had and the money that we saved by shopping there. We will definitely be shopping there again!

FOR BETTER OR WORSE: HOW FAR IS TOO FAR?

So, I know this man who was with the same woman for almost a total of sixtenn years this month. They were together for ten and married for almost six years this July twenty-fourth. She brought with her, a physically disabled daughter into the relationship. This man raised he daughter as his own for sixteen years. Her daugter cherishes him, with all her heart. Well, come to find out, this woman spent nearly 227,000 dollars in five years without him, or her daugter or anyone else knowing about it! She spent it on a secret life of gambling drugs and a lavish wardrobe. That's not all. She first tried to attack her daugters bank accounts! Does this sound like someone you could forgive? Would it be hard to have trust in her after all she has done?

Happy Groundhog Day from Michael and Jamie!

Hi all!

We wanted to wish you a happy groundhog day and hope everything is going well. Just as a heads-up, we will celebrate a year and a half of marriage this month on the 6th of February and will celebrate two years since we first met eachother on March 23,2008.
We both love the month of February because of its shortness. February 14th is quickly approaching and we have differing opinions about the holiday celebrated on this day. My wife, Jamie, thinks that Valentine's Day is too commercial, however, I enjoy this day because I have a hard time sometimes expressing my truly deep feelings and Valentine's Day helps me to show people that I care about my deep appreciation and love for them. My wish and deepest desire is that more people would not just show their appreciation for the people they hold dear just on Valentine's Day, but that we could use Valentine's Day as a pattern for each and every day. If we would do show appreciation and love for those we care about everyday, our marriages would be stronger, sweeter and last longer and our lives would be richer and fuller. I love my wife with all my heart, and I do not regret my decision to marry her. My life has become better because she is my loving companion. May we all better learn to appreciate those we love NOW, so we will not have regrets later when we are gone.

I love you all,

Michael

NOT A BURDEN, HE IS A BLESSING


Mike is a blessing in my life . He helps me to be stronger in the gospel. He is not, nor will he ever be a burden to me or my family. Some may feel that he is a burden in their life. Instead of being jealous of him , they should be thankful for the opprotunities to provide Christlike service they can do for him, because if they were in his position , he would do the same for them.
