HAPPY FATHER’S DAY!

Celebrating the lives of all fathers alive and deceased.  If you did not have a relationship with your father,  there is always the heavenly Father that you can seek and He will welcome you with outstretched arms. 

Have a wonderful Father’s Day everyone!

The aquarium bed

Okay, so it’s not the largest by any measure, but I would’ve killed as a five-year-old to fall asleep with fish swimming over my head. And the sound of the aquarium must be insanely soothing.

UPDATE: #PrayersForCharleston

UPDATE: #PrayersForCharleston

The suspect, Dylan Roof is now in police custody! He was found in NC.

———————————————————

It was very sad to wake up and see that a young man has shot and killed 9 people inside of a church during bible study in my home state of South Carolina. I can honestly say that during the past several years with the movie theater shooting, the Boston marathon bombing, campus shootings, military base shootings, etc., I have been more aware of my surroundings in public places. This also causes me to question the motives of unknown faces. I actually sit in my church at times and play out an escape route for me, my child, and husband in case someone comes in with a gun. I wish this wasn’t the case, but with situations like this I feel I have no choice. Another sickening note is that this guy handpicked a woman to stay alive to tell the story.  They are investigating this as a hate crime because the suspect was white and he targeted a historic black AME church in downtown Charleston, SC. This church is one of the oldest AME churches in the south. Several civil rights activities occurred in that sanctuary. The suspect came inside of the church during bible study, sat there for an hour, stood up and rattled off some rants, and then opened fire. Why did he wait an hour? Was he hoping to be convinced out of it? He is currently on the run and we won’t know these answers until he is caught. I’m praying that justice will be served in this matter expeditiously. On a positive note, a brave 5-year-old child is alive right now because they played dead while the shooting was going on. Thank God for this little survivor. Please keep the families of the victims and the city in your prayers. For more information, please go to http://www.cnn.com/2015/06/18/us/charleston-south-carolina-shooting/

If anyone knows anything or comes across this suspect please call 1-800-CALLFBI. See the flyer below.

What’s Your Jam Wednesday????

Every now and then I like a throwback and this time it’s from Usher.

This is one of the first songs my daughter started singing when she was a toddler (cutest thing ever!)

Congratulations 2015 NBA Champions Golden State Warriors!!!

Congratulations 2015 NBA Champions Golden State Warriors!!!

 

 

 

Warriors Ground

Wow! What a series! Now, I am a die hard San Antonio Spurs fan, but I am super proud of one of my favorite players of all time and now coach, Steve Kerr! Way to go Steve! Especially with this being your first year! You have always been a great example! Keep it up! This was not an easy journey for Curry, Thompson, Green, Iguodala, and the rest of the crew but they did it! Lebron, you did an amazing job with your team, but it was simply not your time “best player in the world.”  🙂 The Warriors got it done on the road in 6! Woohoo!

This is what I imagine it must feel like for the Warriors to win at the Cavs’ house:

Keep shining Golden State!

Hilton Maldives Undersea Restaurant

The Hilton in the Maldives has both underwater suites and an underwater restaurant. The Maldives is actually at risk of sinking into the sea, due to climate change and sea level rise, so this might be the way the whole country is going.
