TO EVERYTHING THERE IS A SEASON.....

and a time to every purpose under heaven; A time to be born , and a time to die....A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance....Ecclesiastes 3 1-8

Things have been a bit hectic around here lately: Hubby's younger brother passed away from brain cancer Friday morning, and ever since then, my days have been a blur.....a whirlwind.....unstructured-unplanned-go-with-the-flow moments that seem to just go on and on and on!

He leaves behind a wonderful wife and 7 amazing children who range in ages from 17 yrs. down to 2 yrs. The little one likes to run up to me and say, "Daddy's Dead! But, he's in Heaven!" My sister-in-law had to laugh when she heard that. She said, "maybe I shouldn't have used the word 'dead' when explaining things to him!" :)

Anyway, please forgive my lack of posting and I hope to return to the blogging world soon. My giveaway is still on, but the winner won't be announced until Tuesday or Wednesday as the funeral is Monday.

May you all have a blessed Sunday!!
