Prayer for a Special Girl

I know I have been away for a while but really need your help with this from our missionaries in Slovenia. As many of you know this is my other home and I so love the Slovenia people. It would mean the world if you would do this and share it with your friend and family. Thank you in advance for your kindness.

Blessings, Lori

Our daughter Joy's best friend has been diagnosed with Leukemia just this week. Her name is Ana. She is 13 years old. She is in the hospital undergoing chemotherapy. As you can imagine this is a very stressful and frightening time for anyone, especially someone who may not have the assurance of God's unfailing love in Jesus Christ. If you would take the time to type out a prayer for Ana, please send it to me at and I will pass it on to her.
Only one person has responded to this urgent need. Ana may die soon without Christ. Would you pray for and encourage her as she struggles to live. Please send me the prayer so that I can forward it on to her family.

Our sweet little Aiden

On September 9, 2011, we welcomed our 6th grandchild, Aiden Blake Story, to our sweet family. We are so thankful to the Lord that he is here and doing great!!! There were a several weeks that we were worried that he was going to be born early and not ready to be here. But he was born just on time. We know that God has a plan for this special baby boy.


Aiden Blake Story, 5lbs 12oz, 20” long


Aiden is welcomed home by is Big Brother Reed. DSC03654

This is Reed and his daddy, Curt just before Curt went to help get baby Aiden here. How precious is this!!!


As you can see Reed was all smiles seeing baby brother for the first time. Do you just love his shirt. We made it at the store and ended up making him two more call that’s just about all he wants to wear.

We didn’t get to hold the baby because Gracanne was having a little trouble with her temperature and they didn’t want to bring him to her until she was stable. We also had to hurry home so we could help with Reed while his Nene went to a funeral visitation for a dear family in Magnolia who lost their husband, daddy, grandpa, etc.

We are going to pick up Aiden on Monday and keep him for a couple of days. Gracanne needs some sleep and they are getting ready to move in the next week. Can’t wait!!!!

Blessings from Grams,

Sharing life

Good Morning, I can’t believe it’s been almost two months since I’ve posted. Our life has been crazy, like always and I’ve just let my blog go by the way side. I probably have been doing some of nothing too or just some mindless junk.

Well since I’ve been here we have been on two trips will share more about that later, pictures involved and preparing for our Mission trip to Slovenia in October. We are so excited about this trip. We will be gone 16 days and hope to share so much and be a blessing along the way. My plan is to share with you all along the way via my blog. Hope you will enjoy it.

Hope you have missed me as much as I have missed you. Watch for my trip pictures.

Blessings, Lori

Quite Sunday

Today has been a wonderful day. Spent the morning at Sunday School and Church. It was a wonderful sermon on “How to build your life well” 1 Cor. 3:10-15. The main thing that was impressed upon my heart today was, God has trusted me with my life. WOW that is BIG.

Hope you had a restful Lord’s day. Blessings, Lori

Cleaning all day long…..

So glad to be back. I will share with you over the next few weeks what I have been up to but today I wanted to discuss our day of cleaning. We cleaned and cleaned and cleaned some more and we’ve just made a small dent. First we worked in the kitchen, then to our bedroom where we moved everything, on to the guest room where we moved out some furniture and finally to the family room for the basics. While we were in the kitchen we cleaned the refrigerator condenser coils. How often do you clean yours? We are suppose to clean them every 6 months. I don’t know about you but I don’t. But I plan to do better. We are trying to take better care of ourselves and the things we have.  While moving things around in our bedroom we needed to move the TV around. We still have one of those HUGE small TV’s. What about you… any of the older TV’s in your house?  I have one more question for you today. Does your husband help you with house work? I am VERY thankful that mine does. He helped all day. Over the years I’ve come to the conclusion that if a woman works outside the home her husband should help. I’m not saying that they shouldn’t if you are a stay at home Mother, please don’t think that. I know that you have one of the hardest jobs on the planet. I just know that it encourages me to have the additional help and not feel like everything is my responsibility.    

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Blogger Changes

I'm not sure about you but I am VERY frustrated with the new blogger changes. I can't see the blog updates from my favorites and I don't know how to fix it. I don't like the new look of the home page and I can't open more than one blog at a time. Any suggestions for me?
Blessings, Lori

Our American Flag

As we celebrate our Independence Day, what do you know about the American Flag? One thing that I have learned over the years is that unless you are in the military, police or fireman you are not suppose to wear one on your clothes in any way. It should not be used in advertising. WOW!!!
Take a look at this site:
Blessing to you and your family on this 4th of July.
