Things going on

You may have noticed I added a new blog to my list of "blogs that inspire me." I've been reading this blog for quite awhile actually & should have added it a long time ago. Forgive me for not doing so, but I am now going to encourage you to go check out Joe Sangl. My girlfriend nick-named him "Dave Ramsey lite." Either way, whether you read Joe or you need a lot more detail & need to read Dave Ramsey - go do it. This stuff works- well, it works if you are at your "I have had enough" point.
Let me just tell you it has all been God, but my husband has been unemployed (and is still) since the end of June, and we have managed to drop debt even during this very difficult time.

On another note, another blog I read that is usually very comical is Because I Said So; she has 6 children, 3 of each. She has a review blog & well, a lot of people read her. She's kind of like the next "Erma Bombeck." She posted a few weeks ago about a giveaway on another blog, so I hopped on over to check it out. And guess what happened?! I WON! I WON!! I WON!!! (Great,~ now I have another blog to add to my list of blogs I read. Just kidding, Rick!)I won a doodle drawing from Rick over at Organized Doodles. He posted rules as to what we could pick for a doodle so I picked this one titled: Holy Ghost Riders ~Doesn't it look great!~

I have to explain, my husband & I both ride motorcycles; a passion I got my husband into. In fact I created a monster, but it is a good one. We are also Christians, meaning we believe in & do our best to follow Jesus Christ & his Word. So I thought that while ALL Rick's drawings were great, Holy Ghost Riders was the most apropos for me. The original post has this scripture -Matthew 3:11. Unfortunately he left it off the doodle he sent me, but that's okay. Thanks Rick! I absolutely love the doodle & when the finances return I plan on getting more.

Thanks Mrs. Rantings. I appreciate the attention, the link, and your kind words here and on my blog. I also appreciate you posting the doodle since I didn't have a chance to copy this one unique colored version. It looks good here. I used my new markers on that drawing that my middle daughter gave me for Christmas for the first time. The other day, when she asked me if I had used them, I was able to tell her that I had. So, thanks for that too. See you around.

God Bless,

Congratulations on winning the giveaway! Very cool drawing! Sky would love that! He loves motorcycles and flames.

I love to hear how God has provided for your family during this time - that's so neat that you've even been able to reduce debt!

Blessings to ya!

Haven't been here in a while. I love the doodle. My husband rides a Kawasaki Nomad. I don't really enjoy it that much, but I ride with him when we go to bike week at Myrtle Beach.

Hello agaub GE,

You asked about eggy on my blog. I often don't add him to the logo and such that I do for other people if I can't place him within the illustration is a way that is not distracting.

I don't know about the strangest place that I've put him, but perhaps the strangest version of him is here...

Hey Gail! I responded to your question on my review blog about Rocket Phonics. Just wanted to let you know! :-)
