Thoughts from a woman managing the daily routine of raising three children, loving her husband while serving along side of him in the ministry and growing in the grace and love of her Lord Jesus Christ.
"Therefore since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us." Hebrew 12:1

Feature Friday- My Little Brother
I am starting a new thing on my blog for my Friday posts. I am going to feature people in my life. My life has been enriched by so many people. This week I am starting with my youngest brother Shane. I am starting with him because he is one of the funniest people I know and I there are so many stories I have to tell about him. We but heads at times because we are so much a like and our middle brother is often the peace maker. Shane can fix almost anything and is a builder. In Jr. High he was trimming the Christmas tree and cut the wire to the lights. He then rewired the lights so my mom would not know. When we were kids growing up Shane was the one that was always playing tricks on people. He set my alarm one day to go off at 3 a.m. instead of 6 a.m. I was already getting ready when I realized what had happened. He would put magazine pictures in my bed of snakes with open mouths to scare me. Two years ago he bought my son a big rubber rat to scare me with. I have found that thing hidden in my bed, my jewlery box and my underwear drawer. Dalton thinks Uncle Shane is the coolest. When I was a teen I got one tank of gas a week that was paid for. I drove a 1978 Bronco and that tank of gas did not go as far in that huge truck. One Sunday afternoon as I went to start it I saw that I was out of gas and was not going to make it very far. When I looked out my window I saw Shane driving his go cart in the neighbors feild. (He had rebuilt the entire go cart himself.) He had siphened the gas out of my truck to make it run. Shane has always been resourceful. In highschool Shane went to state for the 300 meter hurdles and ended up winning a big 12 championship ring with Texas A&M's track team. He has overcome dislexia with a great attitude. He also leads worship for one of the services at his church. I could write a lot about all the stories of things Shane has done to entertain us over the years. For those of you that know Shane feel free to leave a comment telling your favorite story of adventures with him.
