"I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails.
I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp.
I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children.
I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden.
I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder.
I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived."

My new project!

I really have a problem with buying presents for all occasions. I tell my self all the time, we don't have money and we ar not going to do any gifts for b-day, christmas, etc. But I just can't resist. It makes me feal good to give. Well my newest project that I am doing for gifts are big candy bars decorated with fun paper. They are so easy to make and the candy bars are less than $2.00. You can even go to the 99 cent store and buy the boxes that have candy in them and cover those. It's a cute and very inexpensive way to GIVE a gist.
