How to cure writer’s block?!?!

My answer….

Let everyone know IT”S BEGINNING TO LOOK A LOT LIKE CHRISTMAS….

Yes that’s right I am nuts, but hey I am feeling super Christmasy right now. With just reason I might add, I would love to have all my shopping done before the baby arrives, plus all the decorating (not like I do much), and cards planned to be ordered and mailed. So, yes I am off my rocker a little  but don’t they say you loose a piece of your mind with every baby?

So I thought I would get you in the mood by sharing the lyrics of one of my childhood favorite christmas songs…I think it’s awesome…

O Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum, [Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree]
du kannst mir sehr gefallen! [Of all the trees most lovely]

The news had come out in the First World War
The bloody Red Baron was flying once more
The Allied command ignored all of its men
And called on Snoopy to do it again.

Twas the night before Christmas, 40 below
When Snoopy went up in search of his foe
He spied the Red Baron, fiercely they fought
With ice on his wings Snoopy knew he was caught.

Christmas bells those Christmas bells
Ring out from the land
Asking peace of all the world
And good will to man

The Baron had Snoopy dead in his sights
He reached for the trigger to pull it up tight
Why he didn’t shoot, well, we’ll never know
Or was it the bells from the village below.

Christmas bells those Christmas bells
Ringing through the land
Bringing peace to all the world
And good will to man


The Baron made Snoopy fly to the Rhine
And forced him to land behind the enemy lines
Snoopy was certain that this was the end
When the Baron cried out, “Merry Christmas, my friend”

The Baron then offered a holiday toast
And Snoopy, our hero, saluted his host
And then with a roar they were both on their way
Each knowing they’d meet on some other day.

Christmas bells those Christmas bells
Ringing through the land
Bringing peace to all the world
And good will to man.

I do have a favorite christian song but am not sure of the title, if anyone can help me out that would be great. It talks about Jesus was a child like us who had to learn to walk, talk, work, and grow…. I heard it last year for the first time and it has been driving me nuts that I can’t think of what it is called… I’d love to post the lyrics and put it on my page…so please if anyone can help….

Anyways, hope you enjoyed this brief intro to Christmas…. after all it is only 2 months away…

A Reunion….

Well, this weekend was a very special occasion… My husband and a bunch of his friends starting singing together in 1998 (as early as we can recall). After the got started they started singing at other churches, for weddings, and various other occasions, also just for the fun of it…. Well, the last time they sung together was for our wedding (2 years ago)…Three of the eight men are missionaries so that was an awesome feit two years ago to get them all together…

This picture is from our wedding, Everyone looks pretty much the same, Shawn has some facial hair now, and Larry, Jon C., Shawn and Lowell are all fathers but other then that not much else has changed.

Well, the two foreign missionaries were home so in August us wives started planning a reunion for these men. It worked out all except for Brother Mark. His obligation to Fair Play Boys Camp in SC, kept him away but not forgotten, he was missed, but God’s plans are bigger then ours…. So here’s some pictures from this weekend.

This was the cabin we got, in Pine Grove, it was an awesome location and absolutely beautiful…

The Brethren 013a The Brethren 015a

The first night started out with a mouse hunt at 11:30 pm. The guys had a blast and us wives laughed really hard at the comrodery. The next morning was round house ping pong, that was fun to watch, too.

The Brethren 006a The Brethren 009a

The four children kept us mom’s pretty busy. (scary thought though, next time these men will get together the number of children will at the least be doubled…wow)But not busy enough to keep us from a couple hour long Dutch Blitz game, while the men were out playing volleyball and carpet ball…

The Brethren 018a

And of course what’s a weekend away for a singing group without singing. It sounded wonderful, but the high tenor was missed.

 The Brethren 027a The Brethren 042a

May you take time this week to show your friends how much they mean to you and how much the memories you share are cherished. God is an awesome God that moves in ways that surprise us as we look back on the past and anticipate the future.

Memory Lane….

So my sister Dani, inspired me to post pictures from when I was in high school until I became a Christian. Here it goes…

wallet0001 14 years old (1997)

wallet0002 15 years old (1998)

wallet0004 17 years old(2000)

wallet0005 18 years old (may 2002)

Lisa-Baptizing 019a 19 years old (october 2002)

So these are the many changes I have made through the years…The picture of me with the cow (my senior picture) was taken the first summer I was in Lancaster. This was the summer that changed my life and the lives of the Hershey family. See, little did anyone know that I would be the first person of the “adopt-a daughter” program the Hershey’s and God seem to have going…Yes, up until the summer of 2000 the Hershey family was seven and since then at least seven other girls have come to be “sister’s”. Anyway, looking at these pictures makes me stand in awe of the awesome God we serve, who knew that after almost three years I would become a christian (well besides God)…It is an amazing journey He lead us through if we only take time to notice and look…Thanks for joining me on this trip “Down Memory Lane”!!!!

Take time this week to reflect on what God has done in your life and what He has pulled you through over the years…You may be surprised….
