Some of you may know that I have a separate face book page called Personal Testimony Page.
  I shared my testimony on July 2013 and was overwhelmed at the responses from my friends..
  I  was hoping others would share their testimony also.....and some of them did.
  I re-share my testimony around that time each year.
  Activity on that page is few and far between so when I saw I had a notification from that page I was
 excited to see. This is what I saw and I asked if I could share it and he said yes.

Before I came to Christ I was a drinker and occasionally took drugs for recreation.
 I believed there was a God, but had no intention of changing my ways.
After going to Thailand and having some magic mushrooms, i had a bad trip.
 My sister had had schizophrenia, so I thought I was going to get it too.
 I returned home to Australia and felt a bit better.
However the fear returned and I couldn't get any relief.
 One day I decided to visit my Mum's church. It helped me a little.
While I was there, someone gave me a tape about Psalm 22.
It is about Jesus' sufferings on the cross.
 Apparently his mental suffering was much greater than his physical suffering.
 So from then on I felt someone could sympathize with me.
From then on I decided to read the bible and pray, and focus on Jesus' words.
 That changed me and helped me to overcome my anxiety. I'm not perfect but He loves me anyway.
I thought this was a beautiful testimony and I clicked on Chris' name to see where he is from.
Lives in Seoul, South Korea
From Melbourne, Australia
God is so good!
  I question the use of face book sometimes but the OUTREACH can be so powerful when God is
given the glory.
 I thank Chris for this touching testimony and I encourage each of you to put yourself out
there in faith and let God do the rest.
  Love and hugs to each of you
You may not think that you have anything worthwhile to say because I thought
that also.  I thought my life is way far from perfect and I shouldn't be telling anyone
else anything.  But God kept pushing and nudging me to share and guess who
got a blessing from!  So listen to HIM......He will take your words, no matter how clumsy
and shaky they seem and He will work it our for His good.
Trust and Obey!
So here is my testimony if anyone is interested and I pray I get to hear yours some day!
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

Love to you all!!

Gone With The Wind

Haha...Tanner and I looked like a scene out of a movie....we were sitting in the living room listening
 to the gale force winds and rain when we heard a crash up...stairs....
Tanner runs up and yells hurry...i get up there and the window has fallen..yes the entire window.
It seems that someone (mebutdonttellthem) didn't snap the window in place after hanging the
Christmas decorations (whoamIkiddingtheyknowI'mtheonlyonethatdoesthatkindofwork).
(upper right window is the one that fell)

 Anyway rain is pouring in and Tanner is trying to get the window back in place and I'm running
around grabbing towels to mop up the floor.
  The animals are terrified so they are all under our feet and we are tripping over the boxes of
Christmas decorations that I did not use (someoneforgottoputthemup)
 We clean up that disaster and I look out the window and it looks like a river pouring into the chicken
 coop. I put on my royal blue superman boots and grab my flowered umbrella with the bent tip
because I slammed it in the door and head into the storm.
  Leaves had built up in the fence and the water was directed into the coop.
 I slosh my way in with eight wet chickens at my feet because they wanted breakfast! 
To get them out of the way I slosh my way to the food and try to lure them back in the coop.
I can't even see because it's raining so hard and the river is still flowing inside the pen.
 The wind is blowing my umbrella inside out, my boots are sinking in the mud, thunder is rumbling 
but I successfully redirected the water away from the coop!!
I felt like Scarlett  O'Hara ....from Gone with the wind.
I felt strong and raised my fist to the storm and I'm feeling triumphant and I'm saying
My chickens shall never go hungry again!!!!
and then poof........
it all stopped.  No rain.
  If I had waited 10 minutes (to save the chickens) I would not have even gotten wet....:
.....Oh well as Scarlett said "I'll think about that tomorrow...

Christmas Decorating at Work

Well what do you do when you work all the time?
You use up all your Christmas decorating mojo at work
and that's why you don't have even one Christmas sprinkle
at your house.
So let's see what's going on at Tucker ATV shall we?
I made the guys build me a front porch in our lawn mower/ home section.
I have loved decorating it!
Meanwhile my front porch at home looks like this.
They want to know where the Christmas treats are!
Back at Tucker ATV I have put out several trees surrounded by my woodland creatures.

While working on the computer (cough cough) I found this!
The Shepherd on the Search
What a great idea!  It's like the elf on the shelf but the shepherd
is looking for the baby Jesus. 
Isn't that a great idea?!

And now that I'm off the subject of Christmas decorating let me tell you what happened to
us the other day.
Someone paid over $4000 in $1.00 gold coins and 50 cent pieces and $2.00 bills!!!
He asked my husband if we would take it and he said sure and then brought it to me and my
co-worker to count. (dagger eyes)

Thank goodness someone brought oreo bites or we wouldn't have made it...:)

Back to Christmas decorating.....oh wait that's a pic of me at work.
Welcome to Tucker ATV....may I help you?
Don't I sound professional.....if they only knew....bahahaha!
I did put this sign up to warn them.
Don't you love my chicken nesting boxes....they hold my tshirts...:)
You knew I was going to put my chicken theme in there somewhere didn't you?

I decorated the a boat!  That's a whole other story on how
I went to a flea market and called Shannon and told him I bought a rotten
boat.  Sheesh...who knew he was having such a hard time seeing my "vision"
of the store......heehee.  And it didn't help that they had to mount it high
up on the people!!  Focus!!

The deer had to have hats and scarves....:)
They are looking at the boat......they don't "get the vision" either....

And then came the 12' tree!
That was an entire day in Hobby Lobby to buy enough ornaments for the tree.
"Yes, dear we HAD to have these ornaments......if you have a 12' tree then you
have to have a ton of ornaments.  How important was it for us to make a profit
this year anyway??????"

I didn't even show y'all the Man Cave area.  Oh this was so much fun!

I need to get better pics.  The Man Cave has a swing in it and a tire wall and a couch etc.
I will get better pics of the entire store and do a post on it later.
So now you know why my house has nothing Christmasy in it at all.
I'm jingled out!
So from all of us at Tucker ATV we wish you a

Today is a good day

Let's just start right here......
it was a good day!
The hubby and I were headed out of town on a Friday morning!
Yes......we left our business in our son's and employee's hands.
I knew we wouldn't die and the business wouldn't was not so sure.

 We are headed to my very best friend's (since second grade) daughter's wedding.
In Asheville, North Carolina!
Which is an 8 1/2 hour drive for us.
Which is fine because I have plenty of subjects to talk to Shannon about...wink wink.
Chickens.........what we will eat.............when we will eat............will my chickens
know if I eat chicken??
I have laffy taffy jokes.......what do cats and Christmas have in common????
They both have sandy claws........................bahahahaha!!!
What time do you go to the dentist??????.......................tooth hurty!!!!
I know he is as excited as I am....:) :) :) :)

Right off the bat I had problems.........Shannon does not eat half as much as I do!


So when we got up and out the door at 5 a.m. he went through Hardee's

to get him a coke and he asked if I wanted something.

Decisions, decisions........

I wasn't starving but I knew it would be a looooong time before we stopped again so

I got a frisco breakfast sandwich and I told him we would half it......(it makes

me not seem so fat).

 I gobbled up my half and he said with a smirk "you can have my half" so I made a big

production of wrapping up his half (although I could have eaten it)..;)

Then about 3 hours later he pulls into a Waffle House.

He orders the big breakfast and I order grits and eggs and toast

and I KNOW he wants to say something so I ask


"and just so you know I have a waffle coming also"

and he says "you've got to be kidding???!!"

I told him I had been training all my life to eat this way and it was

his own fault if he couldn't keep up.

Then we were back on the road, me napping and dreaming of lunch....heehee.

I opened my eyes just long enough to see this sign and let out a big sigh of relief...:)

We drive a couple more hours

and then we saw the sign..................Campbell's covered bridge.....I screeched!!

We must stop!!! And I can't believe he did!

It was beautiful....

 We made it to our hotel and it was awesome!

I highly recommend it...we were right in town...walked everywhere.

It once was a department store so the rooms were huge and when we got out

of our elevator it would say "second's dept.".

 We saw many cool things.

Found this in the first jumped right on my finger..:)

I wanted my pic made by this ginormous fire place because it would make me look small
just saying....

And then there was this beautiful couple and their beautiful wedding.
Oh to be this young again..:)

and my precious (size 2) friend....

And before you knew it we were on our way home.
White knuckling our way through eight lanes of traffic in Atlanta with
airplanes almost landing on you,
 to arguing over one last place to eat.
Olive Garden with dessert first...;) I'm teaching him all the tricks.

I found a new app for my phone and started texting my chickens.
and everyone else that was on facebook...:)

And then we were home....feeling so blessed to have beautiful places to
visit and a home to welcome you back and dear friends all along the way.
So all that's left to say is............
goodnight and thank you for hanging in there with me on this very long post!

Dear Complaint Dept.

Dear water hose makers,
Is there a reason that water hoses must be stored and sold all coiled up
like a cobra?
Did you realize that after months of sitting on shelves like this that trying
to wrangle it into any other shape, like straight, is impossible?
Did the water hose go through naval training to teach it how to tie its way
into impossible knots?
And when it finally comes out of the knot it does an acrobatic move
that Cirque du Soleil would be proud of and
soaks you completely.
And then you have to explain to your husband why he found you in the bathroom
blow drying your boob.
Maybe you should talk to Little Debbie......she has excellent
customer satisfaction. (or maybe that's just me)
Sincerely soaked and enjoying a Little Debbie snack,
Next letter will be to dog bed makers.
Stay tuned.
