From Barb

Hello, you two. Like so many others, who love you, I'm sorry you're having to endure so much. I know it must be very overwhelming. Just remember you have many, many people praying for you, keeping good thoughts, and wanting only the best for you. Of all the constants we can depend upon, the very best one is knowing GOD IS WHEREVER WE ARE.
love you,

From Merry

Dear Krissy & John,
I am so sorry you have hit rough times, still again.  I want you to know I have been praying for you.  I asked Valerie what you needed and she said, number one thing you needed was prayers.  So, remember, I'm a'sending 'em up to ya & Him (Our Father) above.  May you have enough courage to get through each day, and peace and well being to get rest at night.
Keep all of us posted. We care and we love you!  Only the brave like you could get through all this so well.  Be proud of yourselves! We all are, and I am honored to know you!

Dear John & Krissy,
I am sorry I've not stopped by sooner. I wanted to send something special to you right now, so went looking through my box of songs and poems I've written when going through trials of my own. The one below I wrote in 1988. I hope it comforts you. Know you are always in my prayers- always in my heart.
With Your Hand Upon My Shoulder
Life these days isn't easy
It's harder then yesterday.
Harder to do what I ought to do,
And say what I need to say.
There's more rain then there are rainbows,
More things to tempt me to fall
But with Your hand upon my shoulder, Lord,
There's no need to worry at all.
With Your hand upon my shoulder, Lord,
I can make it through this hour
I'll not worry about tomorrow, Lord
I'll just lean upon Your power.
You promised never to forsake me, Lord
So, you're  with me still, today.
With your hand upon my shoulder, Lord
I can make it all the way.

The man looked a little worried when the doctor came in to administer his annual physical, so the first thing the doctor did was to ask whether anything was troubling him.

"Well, to tell the truth, Doc, yes," answered the patient. "You see, I seem to be getting forgetful. No, it's actually worse than that. I can never remember where I park my car, where I'm going, or what it is I'm going to do once I get there -- if I get there. So, I really need your help. What can I do?"

The doctor mused for a moment, then answered in his kindest tones, "Pay me in advance."

Jeannette's Jottings

La Dolce Vita

As I Am

A Pennie's Worth


The minister of a city church enjoyed a drink now and then, but his passion was for peach brandy. One of his congregants would make him a bottle each Christmas. One year, when the minister went to visit his friend, hoping for his usual Christmas present, he was not disappointed, but his friend told him that he had to thank him for the peach brandy from the pulpit the next Sunday.

In his haste to get the bottle, the minister hurriedly agreed and left. So the next Sunday the minister suddenly remembered that he had to make a public announcement that he was being supplied alcohol from a member of the church. That morning, his friend sat in the church with a grin on his face, waiting to see the minister's embarrassment.

The minister climbed into the pulpit and said, "Before we begin, I have an announcement. I would very much like to thank my friend, Joe, for his kind gift of peaches ... and for the spirit in which they were given!"

Hey Let's Talk


For their anniversary, a couple went out for a romantic dinner. Their teenage daughters said they would fix a dessert and leave it waiting.

When they got home, they saw that the dining room table was beautifully set with china, crystal and candles, and there was a note that read: "Your dessert is in the refrigerator. We are staying with friends, so go ahead and do something we wouldn't do!"

"I suppose," the husband responded dryly, "we could clean the house."

Dear Krissy,
I heard you were not doing so well again. You and sweet John have really been through a lot. I wanted to apologize, hon, for not stopping by sooner. I'm a bit behind on everything, but haven't forgotten you. Hope the few things below will lift your spirits a little bit. Much love to you and John,

I Shaved My Legs For This?

A little girl was wearing one of those Medical Alert bracelets.

Someone asked her what the bracelet was for. She replied, "I'm allergic to nuts and eggs."

The person asked, "Are you allergic to cats?"

The girl said, "I don't know. I don't eat cats."
