2 years gone

It's been 2 years since the passing of my Grandma.  This song gives me joy!!
Dying is not the end for the believer.  Death has been conquered by the shed blood of our Saviour!
To die is to live with Him for eternity!

It is not death to die
To leave this weary road
And join the saints who dwell on high
Who've found their home with God
It is not death to close
The eyes long dimmed by tears
And wake in joy before Your throne
Delivered from our fears

Oh Jesus, conquering the grave
Your precious blood has power to save
Those who trust in You
Will in Your mercy find
That it is not death to die

It is not death to fling
Aside this earthly dust
And rise with strong and noble wing
To live among the just
It is not death to hear
The key unlock the door
That sets us free from mortal years
To praise You evermore

Vitamin B17

So I thought I would share my next tidbit of info concerning cancer.  Vitamin B17!!!  Where do we find Vit b17 that KILLS cancer cells??  In the seeds of our fruit!  Eat your apple seeds.  Break open the pits of your apricot, peach, cherry, plum pits and eat the kernels inside them.  Apricot seeds have the highest concentration of Vit b17.  So don't throw away those seeds next time!  They're bitter but they are good for you!!!
Gen 1:29  Then God said, "Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the surface of all the earth, and every tree which has fruit yielding seed; it shall be food for you.

Her new thing to do

Baby girl is now 11 months old.  We are excited about a birthday next month!!  It will be a fish theme....very cute!  Her new thing to do is shake her head 'yes'.  She also babbles alot always ending with her voice going up funny.  She smiles and laughs alot and has such a loving and bubbly personality so far.  She is now pulling herself up to stand but no steps yet.  Still only has 2 teeth...what's up with that???  She is definitely not following the same teething patterns of her siblings.  They all had a mouthful by now while she has 2 pearly whites on the bottom.  The video is her shaking her head yes to my questions :)

House hunting and gardening

We went to look at another house today.  It was a great deal, had lots and lots of room in it, nice hardwood flooring (needed to be refinished), huge basement, beautiful property....needed some work done on it like new carpeting, painting, nice long driveway off the road (4.7 acres).....but it was right across the street from a middle school, they are going to be doing construction soon to make it 4 is a foreclosure and they are taking bids for the next several days and then picking a winner.  There was just something that I wasn't happy about.  I didn't LOVE it.  It was nice, had lots of potential but I didn't love it.  Ho hum....will we ever find a place.

Since a new house doesn't look like it is in the near future and we really want to try gardening this year....I came across this!  I think we may try it this way!  We have attempted a hanging garden which didn't work, so maybe this might be the answer.  I'm excited to see what will come of this!
