(It's from an email)

This bridge is on the Old Donner Pass Highway.
It has a spectacular view of Donner Lake and
Donner Pass on R oute 80. (it's in Texas)
A bear was walking across Rainbow Bridge ( Old Hwy 40 at
Donner Summit , Truckee ) on Saturday when two cars, also
crossing the bridge, scared the bear into jumping over the
edge of the bridge. Somehow the bear caught the ledge
and was able to pull itself to safety. Authorities decided
that nothing could be done to help Saturday night so they
returned Sunday morning to find the bear sound asleep on
the ledge.
After securing a net under the bridge the bear was tranquilized,
fell into the net, lowered, then woke up and walked out of the net.
There is a moral to this story you know; this old bear made
a wrong move and found he was hanging by his nails. Somehow
he was able to pull himself up onto the ledge where he saw he
was in a very bad, impossible situation and what did he do?
Yep, he took a nap and sure enough God took care of the
situation while he was asleep.

ASLNikki is CHAMP!

Nikki's vlogs are champ!

Check out
her vlogs. Enjoy!

For DVTV vloggers and viewers,
I don't agree with Barry's vlog about Nikki. I think his vlog is meaningless, so don't bother to watch it.

Flowers, Flowers, Flowers, and more,

It's written by Hannah few years ago I found in the cabinets.

Flowers, flowers, flowers, and more,
Roses, violets, daisies, galore,
You are a flower....
Sunlight and water is what you need,
You were first a tiny seed,
But with some love and care, you grew,
And from the moment I suddenly knew,
Once you bloomed big,
You became not a beanstalk, but....
A Red Rose!!

Lean on Me

I found Tami's poem when I cleaned up the cabinets. I'd like to share it with you. It's written on March 22, 2006.

Lean on Me
And I will lead,
For I am your firm foundation.
Trust and Obey
For I am the Way
Because I am your firm foundation.
When your strength is gone,
and you feel withdrawn,
I am your firm foundatin.
Put your trust in My Word
For it will be your cure.
I am your firm foundation.
When you are in need,
Just cling to me
For I am your firm foundation.
When you need help to stand
And your friend won't give you a hand
I will be your firm foundation
Pray and keep in touch,
And I will be your crutch
Because I am your firm foundation.
"Who are You?" you say.
I am the Life, the Truth, and the Way.
And I am your firm foundatin.
By Tami

(I got it from my email)
This picture was taken directly above the camels in the
desert at sunset.
It is considered one of the best pictures of the year.
The camels are the whitish flecks. The black camel shapes
are the shadows!

Deer Visits Every Morning~

I copied and pasted it from an email I got from my mom. I had no idea who the owner was. It's been forwarded, so I thought I'd do it on my blog. Enjoy!

Deer visits cat every morning.
There is nothing more wonderful than animals.
A cat in Harrisburg has a special friend that visits every morning.
The owner finally took pictures!
It's so beautiful! I copied and pasted it from an email my friend sent. ~Deb Ann

Why Did Jesus Fold the Napkin?

This is one I can honestly say I have never seen circulating in the e-mails so; I'll start it, if it touches you and you want to forward it.

Why did Jesus fold the linen burial cloth after His resurrection? I never noticed this....

The Gospel of John (20:7) tells us that the napkin, which was placed over the face of Jesus, was not just thrown aside like the grave clothes.

The Bible takes an entire verse to tell us that the napkin was neatly folded, and was placed at the head of that stony coffin.

Early Sunday morning, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene came to the tomb and found that the stone had been rolled away from the entrance.

She ran and found Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one whom Jesus loved. She said, 'They have taken the Lord's body out of the tomb, and I don't know where they have put him!'

Peter and the other disciple ran to the tomb to see. The other disciple out ran Peter and got there first. He stopped and looked in and saw the linen cloth lying there, but he didn't go in.

Then Simon Peter arrived and went inside. He also noticed the linen wrappings lying there, while the cloth that had covered Jesus' head was folded up and lying to the side.

Was that important? Absolutely!
Is it really significant? Yes!

In order to understand the significance of the folded napkin, you have to understand a little bit about Hebrew tradition of that day.
The folded napkin had to do with the Master and Servant, and every
Jewish boy knew this tradition.

When the servant set the dinner table for the master, he made sure that it was exactly the way the master wanted it.

The table was furnished perfectly, and then the servant would wait, just out of sight, until the master had finished eating, and the servant would not dare touch that table, until the master was finished..

Now if the master were done eating, he would rise from the table, wipe his fingers, his mouth, and clean his beard, and would wad up that napkin and toss it onto the table.

The servant would then know to clear the table. For in those days, the wadded napkin meant, "I'm finished.."

But if the master got up from the table, and folded his napkin, and laid it beside his plate, the servant would not dare touch the table, because..........

The folded napkin meant,
"I'm coming back!"


We have two rabbits, a hamster, two cats, three dogs, a crawfish, and some fish. We haven't tried to get all of them to get together for a picture!

Happy Mother's Day~

I want to wish you a very Happy Mother's Day! Enjoy your extra special day!!
God bless,
