The Happiest Place On Earth

Well, we finally returned from Disney World and I'm back from Las Vegas for CLASS Personality Training. What a long two weeks it's been! I've alwasy heard Disney was the happiest place on earth, but I think today that home is! Thanks for all my bloggy friend prayers. Things went smoothly and we didn't have any seizures!! I've got lots of pictures to share but just wanted to upload this one for tonight.

Sweet dreams my friends,

Good Fortune

5 Minutes for Faith - Daily Devotions for Moms

Is America in constant need of good news? It seems all we ever see on television is bad news. I’mnot one for watching the news everyday, because almost every story reported is full of turmoil and tragedy.

Then Sings My Soul Saturday - Sanctus Real

I can't believe I just found this group recently. I'm not sure how old this song is, but I heard it on the radio and loved it. I hope you do too! The lyrics are great!

It's time for healing time to move on It's time to fix what's been broken too long

Time to make right what has been wrong It's time to find my way to where I belong

There's a wave that's crashing over me And all I can do is surrender

(Chorus)Whatever You're doing inside of meIt feels like chaos but somehow there's peace

It's hard to surrender to what I can't seebut I'm giving in to something Heavenly

Time for a milestone Time to begin again

Reevaluate who I really am Am I doing everything to follow Your will

Or just climbing aimlessly over these hills

So show me what it is You want from me I give everything I surrender...To...


Time to face up Clean this old house Time to breathe in and let everything out

That I've wanted to say for so many years Time to release all my held back tears

Whatever You're doing inside of me It feels like chaos

but I believe You're up to something bigger than than life something Heavenly

Whatever You're doing inside of me It feels like chaos but now I can see

This is something bigger than me Larger than life something Heavenly

Something Heavenly It's time to face upClean this old house

Time to breathe in and let everything out

I hope He's doing something heavenly in you.
Sweet Blessings,

Newsweek Article

Just got another email from a friend about the Newsweek cover article on epilepsy. I'm so glad it's finally making it into the news. Here are the links to some of the articles in this week's cover story about epilepsy. They are definitely worth reading if you have a few minutes.

Epilepsy in America: What must be done.

A Storm in the Brain:

In the Grip of the Unknown

Agony, Hope and Resolve

Please take a few minutes to read these, especially if you don't know much about epilepsy. They are great articles.

Have a blessed day!

Top 100 Christian Blogs

What a sweet surprise! I just got an email from Suzane at Becoming a Radiologist Technician about an article they posted that listed the top 100 Christian Blogs. I saw many of you who participate regularly in Then Sings My Soul listed there too so... Congratulations. 
Signs, Miracles and Wonders is #56

Here's the link if you want to check it out. You might find some new blogging buddies you like from the list!

The Easter Egg Hunt

We had a wonderful Easter at Grand Judy and Grand Dee's house this past weekend. The kids had a blast hunting Easter eggs and lunch was great. Now if we can just get rid of all this chocolate maybe I can start my diet :-)
Here are a few pics from The Hunt.

Spencer and Mary Lyndsey
The family ( Lucia included )
Grand Judy and Grand Dee and all the grandkids.

I hope they love each other this much when they get to be teenagers!

Have a blessed day!

Washington Trip / Epilepsy Stuff

I've been promising to post pictures from our Washington Trip to the National Epilepsy Walk and I finally have them loaded. I don't know where the time goes. This week sort of disappeared on me. 
Before I share a little about our trip though, I want you to check out these two links on epilepsy stuff. 

The first link is a video of Greg Grunberg
 on CNN talking about Epilepsy Awareness and his new website TalkAboutIt.Org. Be sure to check out the Talk About It site too. It's very cool! 

The next link is to the cover of Newsweek for April 20. It's an awesome story on epilepsy.

There is lots of great information in all these links! By the way, Spencer is 4 weeks seizure free again. Hallelujah! Please continue to pray for no seizures as we are about to go to Disney World for Spring Break. 

Here are some of the pics from Washington.
Me and Spencer on Capitol  Hill
Spencer as The President of the United States :-)

Jake Grunberg and Spencer
 Jake, Phil Gattone and Spencer after the Walk.

We had a great time at Kids Speak Up and at the Walk. We raised over $500 for the Epilepsy Foundation. I think over 9,000 people attended the walk this year despite the rain. Spencer is already asking if we can go back next year. 

Sweet Blessings,

5 Minutes for Faith - "Just Like the Disciples"

I'm over at 5 Minutes for Faith today, come join me.

5 Minutes for Faith - Daily Devotions for Moms

Do you ever have difficulty believing something you know Christ has promised? Perhaps you have heard Him whisper, "you will have that child you so desperately want, just wait" or "your marriage is not over, trust me" or "I will provide for you, you will have everything you need." Sometimes we think the things He has promised us, the things we dream of, just can't possibly be true. Then we feel like second rate Christians, not worthy of carrying His name and promise to the lost. We think, "If I can't trust Him, how can I be worthy to ask anyone else to?" If you have found yourself doubting or confused lately, don't be so hard on yourself, you are surprisingly just like the disciples.

Then Sings My Soul Saturday - In the Presence of Jehovah

I've talked to several friends this week who have said their life is hurried and busy. They are tired and stressed. I'm right there with them. We all are facing different issues. The economy, financial challenges, health challenges, marital stresses, difficulty with our kids, self-worth issues - everyone is facing something. 

Isn't it great to know there is One we can go to where our questions are answered, our troubles vanish, our hearts are mended and we can find rest. 

Take a few moments to concentrate on the One who wants to be your PERSONAL God, the One who wants to meet all of your needs. 

I pray you have a blessed weekend. 

PS... I promise pictures of DC are coming soon. I just have to find time to get them uploaded :-)

FaithLifts - Time in a Bottle

5 Minutes for Faith - Daily Devotions for Moms

I'm over at 5 Minutes for Faith today. Please drop by and read the rest of this devotion! 

Have you ever shaken a bottle of something to make what's inside come out faster? You know... the shampoo bottle, the ketchup bottle, or the squeezable jelly bottle. Sometimes when you shake the contents of a bottle to the opening, you get what's inside to move faster.

Click here to read the rest!

P.S. I planned to blog from Washington but my computer stopped working the second day there, so I had no access. I plan to post pictures and tell about everything we did tomorrow. Have a blessed day!
