Anyway...they only way I know to catch y'all up is to post my facebook posts.

Put your knickers on and come on out and see us on this cold Saturday morning. Shannon will be at the shop until 12 and Tanner and I will have a spot set up at the Jackson Fall Festival!!! So come on out and say hello......I will be the big layered up blob holding a funnel cake and some kind of food on a stick... Hope we see you soon!!!

And so it begins! Come out to the Jackson fall festival and you too can hold a gator!!
We have been at the Fall festival since 7 am this morning. My face is so wind chapped that when I finally left in the car I had to turn the air conditioner on full force and aim it right at my face because it was going through withdrawal. ‪#‎redcheeks‬ ‪#‎funnelcakejellybelly‬ ‪#‎agooddaytoauditiontobesanta
3 a.m. conversation: ( Me climbing back into bed)... Shannon: Where have you been? (he asks in a very sleepy voice) Me: stomach hurts. Shannon: can't eat funnel cakes anymore..... Me: thinking..(did I hear laughter in that comment) ‪#‎thereshouldbeagerestrictionsonfunnelcakes
My stomach went into shock and awe and full on combat mode when a piece of lettuce landed there. I had to eat a snickers to calm it down
Dear Lisa, I would like to move back to my old address, sincerely yours, Bellybutton

Right before the start of the Alabama game I heard a bump so I went to the back door and turned on the light to the deck expecting to see my dog. But she was not there so I turn the light off and turn to walk away and my brain said wait a minute so I turn the light back on and there is a possum sitting up in the dog dish looking at me. I turn the light off run and get my camera, the BB gun and oven mitts? I don't know...what do you use against possums? Turn the light on and h...e's gone! So then I get the dogs, a flashlight, BB gun, and oven mitts and run to the back yard to scare the possum away because he better not hurt my chickens! All of the above were all possum! I go check on the chickens and sing a lullaby and tuck them in for the night and pray for a safe night for them and wait...where's Lucy?! Where is my red chicken? My heart is beating fast ...if that possum...ohhh im gonna kill me a possum!! I run around to the front of the house and there she is (Lucy) roosting on the front porch so then I had to go get a heat lamp and hook it up to shine on her so she won't get cold tonight. My animals and the Alabama football team are killing me right now

I realize that most of you have read this and it is long but I decided I would re-share my testimony once each year. Thank you for allowing me to share...
My Testimony
As I was reading my Bible this morning I read this verse....2 Thessalonians 2:9-12 "The coming of the lawless
one will be in accordance with the work of Satan displayed in all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs and
wonders, and in every sort of evil that deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused
to love the truth and so be saved. For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe
the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness."
I grieved over this. Before I was saved, I thought, at the end times people could clearly see what was happening
and ask for forgiveness and be saved....but according to that verse that is not so. After turning away from God so
many times and refusing to love the truth God himself will send a delusion so that you will never see the truth.
I want everyone to be saved. I prayed and prayed this morning and I just kept getting the urging to give my testimony.
Which I have never done before. So dear God....please give me the words to say......amen.
When I was 13 I was saved at a revival at Springfield Methodist Protestant Church.
And then I went on with my life. I tried very hard to do "right" but failed so many times and even
forgot about any of it for months at a time. And there lies the problem. My salvation was not an "it"
was not "doing" the right was not showing up at was not giving up all of my
bad habits....but I didn't realize that. You could ask me if I was 100% positive that I was saved
and I would waiver just a little bit.
I would say "I think so but how does anyone know if they are doing everything right enough?" I would have
great time periods of being a good "Christian" or so I thought.
And time marched on...I got married....I had children.....we went to church most of the time....
Fast forward 30 years later.
I'm still up and down. I love the Lord. I think I'm safe.
Then, for some reason, I make a commitment to start reading my Bible more.
Then, I decide to turn my radio in my car to WMBV Christian Radio and listen.
I started my mornings off with a preacher on television.
And these things have dramatically changed my life.
What you surround yourself with is what comes forth in your life.
I am not putting down the Church in any way....because it and the people there are my foundation.
I would not be at this next step without them.
The more I heard and read the more I understood and wanted to know more.
I started a new relationship in my life. My relationship with Christ. Key word - relationship.
I had to put in time in this relationship......not just Sundays.
Would you wake up with your loved one and not say anything.....or even talk to them for days at a time? No!
So our relationship began. Then I started praying for wisdom and knowledge about our relationship and it
was like a light turned on after trying to read in darkness.
I started reading only Christian books to further my education on our relationship.
That was only about 7 years ago that I made this total commitment to Christ......that I said "I Do"...that I will love , honor and cherish you.
I can tell you that I am 100% sure that I am saved!! I will go to heaven and be with my Savior.......praise the Lord!
I can also tell you that I am far from perfect. I mess up.....a lot. I have terrible days but I still have my relationship
with Christ. He will not leave me. If you act ugly or have a bad day with your spouse or loved one does that mean the
relationship is over....NO! You make do love each talk to each continue
on with your relationship. That's how Christ is.......he loves to him.
We try to make this hard and it's so easy.........and it's the most wonderful thing you can ever do in your life.
It doesn't mean our lives will be perfect or not have sadness and trouble.
But it does mean that we will never have to face anything alone or be unloved.....what else could you want in life?
Please don't wait as long as I may not have that much time.
Please ask Christ to come into your life today if you don't have that relationship.
"For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him
should not perish but have everlasting life." John 3:16

Even though I read these on facebook, I read them again to remind myself why I love you...and even dream about you!

Lisa, that's a most awesome testimony. It is about the relationship. I am sure. I know where I am going. He's my savor and my best friend.
I also love the gator picture and I don't think that old possum would hurt the chickens. They like dog food, cat food and garbage. A chicken could outrun them anyway. One flapping and the possum would faint.
I love the image in my head of you with a BB gun and oven mitts...LOL.
