"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."

Ever have a WET cell phone?

Tech TLC
Have you or any of your kids dropped your cell phone in water? Mine ended up in the pool this summer.
Try this:
Don't try to turn it on. Remove the battery and seal both it and the device in tupperwareg witha silica gel pac (found in a new purse, or in a new shoe box, or even in a bag of beef jerky). Put the lid on and wait a day for the gel to absorb the liquid before reassembling it and turning it on.
