Thursday Thirteen

Thirteen Things about Heather That Not Everyone Knows

1. I am scared of the dark.

2. I have a birthmark on the top of my foot - not any kind of cool shape - just a round brown spot.

3. Writing is a passion for me and I like writing disturbing sad pieces.

4. I want to be a motivational speaker.

5. I suffer from depression...way more than people know.

6. I sleep with the TV on - refer to number 1.

7. I would really like to participate in a mission overseas.

8. I am breeding baby guppies.

9. I feel shy, uncomfortable, and misunderstood in social situations. I combat those feeling by being extremely outgoing.

10. I am broke - always. Partly because our family makes little money, mostly because I spend too much. I rarely spend money on myself.

11. My favorite movie is Sabrina with Harrison Ford.

12. I love TV shows from the 70's and earlier.

13. I have very few true friends ~ but the friends I have are more valuable to me then anything else in the world. Especially my mom and husband.

Funny's From Church

We went to a new church on Sunday and got these on one of the pamphlets they gave us. They cracked me up so I thought I would share.

From the mouths of babes....

What do most people do on a date?
-- Dates are for having fun, and people should use them to get to know each other. Even boys have something to say if you listen long enough. ~ Lynette - Age 8

How would you make a marriage work?
--Tell your wife she looks pretty even if she looks like a truck. ~ Ricky - Age 10

What would you do on a first date that was turning sour?
-- I'd run home and play dead. The next day I would call all the newspapers and make sure they wrote about me in all the dead columns. ~ Craig - Age 9

Is it better to be single or married?
-- It's better for girls to be single but not for boys. Boys need someone to clean up after them. ~ Anita - Age 9

The Reason for the Season

Yes, it is another "Easter Egg Dying" blog entry...but I do think ours is special.

Every year Clayton surprises me with his ability to remember Easter and why we celebrate it. Last year I had tears forming in my eyes when I pulled a freshly dyed egg out of the cup and read what he had written in wax crayon - "Thank you, Jesus."

This year was no different. Oh yes, we did have some fun eggs - like Spongebob and Patrick:

Ronnie decorated his own egg with STICKERS of course :) (And no - I could not get this photo to turn out well no matter WHAT I did)

And I even showed my own OCD behavior in creating this egg:

Clayton's eggs, however, well read for yourself.

The first one I pulled out has a cross on it and the words "May we praise the Lord" (he actually wrote perish from John 3:16 but later told me he just got confused for a second on the right word)

The second one I didn't pull out of the cup. Clayton brought it to me and asked if I knew what it was. Thinking we were still on a Spongebob theme I asked if it was Patrick's house. Clayton said - "No mom - look. A tomb, a boulder in the entrance..." Wow - I was just amazed.

So even though Mom is not a photographer (and I certainly don't have the best digital camera!) I wanted to take a moment and share the special evening we had in the Sawyer household....thanks to a wonderful 10-year old boy who reminded us of the great gift given to us 2,000 years ago.

"For God so loved the world that He gave his one and only son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16
