Shuttle Launch

For you to actually grasp the entirety of this post I have to start from the very beginning and in order to do that I must press the rewind button for quite some time, to take you back several years ago ;-)

My parents had planned our yearly vacation to Florida, as they did every year, but this year, for what ever reason, my mom decided to take my brother and I through Huntsville, Al for a short visit to the space center. To do this we had to depart early leaving my dad behind, only to catch up with him in Florida when we were done.

All was fair until mom got this crazy idea to walk....5 mile through the woods....during a heat wave....with no means of re-hydration for hours, just to see a test rocket. Yea a test rocket! Mind you, that is how my brother and I remember the aspects of the journey, mom still claims to this day that it was less than a mile on a path through a tree line in 80 degree weather and we filled up on drinks before we left =0)

Regardless of the situation we were on …

WHEW! What a Week (Part1)

So as I sat down to write this post I realized that it's been 2 weeks, 2 weeks since I posted a personal post. My how that makes my schedule seem that much more compacted than it truly was. I knew I had to break it up into parts or this would just be another rambling post but I guess I didn't realize I should have broke it up into weeks instead, although these past 2 weeks run close enough together that it doesn't matter.......I am rambling aren't I?

It all started with the week we headed to Church camp, that was the week that we were praying the angel of death would soon leave =0( But he didn't, he took one more loved one while we were away. As horrible as it sounds I didn't flinch, as if I was so dumb to the idea of death I just rejoiced in the fact that I know I will one day see him again. I didn't tell my son about it, he had already been through enough and I was praying he would open up to his counselor about it.

That is when God literally placed his h…

Jeffrey & Rachel Hardcastle: ‘This is What Jesus Does’

When my hubs and I realized that it was accountability we were missing in our marriage, we were introduced to a few amazing couples. One couple in particular makes our marriage struggles look like a birthday party gone wrong at Chuckie Cheese, being that they have literally been through hell and back, back to Jesus.

Seriously listen to their story and see for yourself. Jeffrey & Rachel Hardcastle: ‘This is What Jesus Does’
Go ahead I will wait.............
So what did you think? Pretty amazing huh!?
When we met Jeffrey and Rachel we knew that we all had one thing in common but we did not know right away what that common was, until one night they shared their story with us and I must say I was blown away.
That night my hubs and I sat up and talked about not only how remarkable there venture was but how just listening to their testimony gave US wisdom, strength and encouragement
Wisdom to know that we were not the only ones. For a long time I thought we were the only ones in out to…

Here's how it works: Select the eCoupons you like on the website or mobile app, and they are automatically linked to your store loyalty cards.

Instead, they get deposited into your account within 7-30 days depending upon where you shop.Once your SavingStar account reaches $5 in savings, you can pick your payout from a bank account deposit, a PayPal account deposit, an Amazon gift card, or a donation to charity.
