Jordan Speaks

We gave Jordan 11, a matching necklace, earrings and ring for Christmas.

Each piece was her birth stone and surrounded by tiny diamond chips.

She loves it and is very careful with each of them. She will not be able to wear the pierced ear rings until she is 12 years old.

She will not wear her necklace to bed for fear of breaking the chain.

She loves pretty things and told her Mom recently that from now on...

She wants jewelry for Christmas!

She is her Grand Mothers.... Grand daughter!

If you can't find a gift for me...Jewelry is always the right fit!

I have passed my love of jewelry to Jordan.

I love you, Jordan!

 Gotta love little boys....

  Two young boys walked into a pharmacy one day, picked
out a box of Tampax, and proceeded to the checkout counter.

The man at the counter asked the older boy,  "Son, how old are you?"
 " Eight", the boy replied.
The man continued, "Do you know how these are used?"
The boy replied,  "Not exactly. But they aren't for me. They are for him. He's my brother.  He's four.

We saw on TV that if you use these 
you would be able to swim and ride a bike.

 He can't do either one."

Grand daughter Jordan called last evening to tell me that she was selling Girl Scout cookies.

She read the list of cookies that she was selling and asked me if I would like to buy some.

I bought magazine subscriptions and cookies from Grand daughter Lauren so...

I bought more cookies.

I bought 4 boxes from Jordan to balance out the amount that I bought from Lauren.

Now, I have 2 magazine subscriptions  from the G. S's and 6 boxes of  G. S. cookies!!!!

I think that they tell the girls to call their grand-parents FIRST!

Now, I only have to walk past the Girl Scouts and Brownie's that will be stationed at the front doors of Krogers in the weeks to come.

They get to my heart also with their hopeful faces and a box of cookies in their hands!

We are real suckers but Lovin It!

Grand-daughter, Lauren is selling magazines and cookies for the Girl Scouts ( Brownies ).

So far, I have bought 2 magazine subscriptions that I didn't need at almost $40.00 and 2 boxes of Thin Mints that I cannot eat at $4.00 a box.

So in a little over a week...

I have spent $50.00 for the little Brownie, Lauren!

I love you, Lauren

 An 8-year-old named Danny Dutton, who lives in Chula Vista, Ca .

 He wrote this for his third grade homework assignment, to "explain God".

I wonder if  any of us could have done as well?

"One of God's  main jobs is making people. He makes them to replace the ones that die, so  there will be enough people to take care of things on earth.  He  doesn't make grownups, just babies. I think because they are smaller and  easier to make. That way he doesn't have to take up his valuable time  teaching them to talk and walk. He can just leave that to mothers and  fathers."

"God's second  most important job is listening to prayers. An awful lot of this goes on,  since some people, like preachers and things, pray at times beside  bedtime. God doesn't have time to listen to the radio or TV because of  this. Because he hears everything, there must be a terrible lot of noise  in his ears, unless he has thought of a way to turn it  off."

"God sees  everything and hears everything and is everywhere which keeps Him pretty  busy. So you shouldn't go wasting his time by going over your mom and  dad's head asking for something they said you couldn't  have."

"Atheists are  people who don't believe in God. I don't think there are any  in Chula  Vista.   At  least there aren't any who come to our church. Jesus is God's Son. He  used to do all the hard work, like walking on water and performing  miracles and trying to teach the people who didn't want to learn about  God. They finally got tired of him preaching to them and they crucified  him But he was good and kind, like his father, and he told his father that  they didn't know what they were doing and to forgive them and God said  O.K."

"His dad (God)  appreciated everything that he had done and all his hard work on earth so  he told him he didn't have to go out on the road anymore. He could stay in  heaven. So he did. And now he helps his dad out by listening to prayers  and seeing things which are important for God to take care of and which  ones he can take care of himself without having to bother God. Like a  secretary, only more important."

"You can pray  anytime you want and they are sure to help you because they got it worked  out so one of them is on duty all the time."  "You should always go  to church on Sunday because it makes God happy, and if there's anybody you  want to make happy, it's God!

Don't skip  church to do something you think will be more fun like going to the beach.  This is wrong. And besides the sun doesn't come out at the beach  until  noon anyway.   "If you don't believe in God, besides being an atheist, you will be very  lonely, because your parents can't go everywhere with you, like to camp,  but God can  It is good to know He's around you when you're scared,  in the dark or when you can't swim and you get thrown into real deep water  by big kids."

"But...you  shouldn't just always think of what God can do for you.  I figure God  put me here and he can take me back anytime he  pleases.

And...that's  why I believe in God.
