Oh Marci...I'm so glad you did that!What is a home fellowship? Like a home Bible study? I've got to look up the childhood illness. I couldn't find it in my Tabers...interesting ..u know from a nurse view, lol. I would love to hear you play the fiddle so when you get that Truck (that I would love to ride in!) come visit me & I'll let you sleep in my king-size sleigh bed! Oh & you'll have to let me see you spin!! I pray out-loud too..I think people think I'm crazy cuz I do it while driving a lot! So glad you posted these! TN said...
