Christian Cowboy Gatherin' and the Duke

Our cowboy church and two others had a cowboy gatherin' this weekend, and guess who showed up to give a message???? John Wayne. That's right, folks! Well, close. He's a John Wayne impersonator with a wonderful message, and he's workin' for the Lord! Wow! I guess you know what big JW fans we are around this house... let's see JW on the wall... JW on the coffee table... and my own personal JW lunchbox. Oh, and we must not forget our steers - Rooster Cogburn and McLintock!
We really enjoyed meeting Dr. Gene Howard, and I think he enjoyed posing on our little boy, Rooster. He looked more like the Duke from a distance than up close, but his voice and his testimony more than made up for that!

We had our chuckwagon crew, our band, and the longhorns, and we had a blast! Best of all, some souls were saved!

Total Shocker!!

I could not believe it! I picked up the mail Friday and was thrilled to have the Christmas addition of Doll Crafter and Costuming waiting in my box. I'm a magazine junky AND a Christmas junky, so I had really hit the jackpot for the weekend! I never can wait to get home, so as I was backing out of the post office (Don't try this at home!), I flipped through the magazine just to see what goodies awaited me. There it was... my HARTS Santa candy container... right there in the Gallery! I had submitted a picture, but I figured it would be filed with hundreds of others - File 13. I'm still shocked!

Here it is-

Need Help!

Ok, My Friends in BlogLand,

I reallllllyyy want to finish my life-size Santa, and he's still barefoot. I am looking for a pair of old, worn stovepipe boots, such as the old cavalry boots, in a size 10, 11, or 12. I'm poor, so I need them to fit my shoestring budget! If you happen onto a pair somewhere, please send me an email with the info. I would hate for Santa to have to go barefoot this Christmas. His wittle toesies would fweezzzee! Here's kind of what I have in mind, but laceups will work, too. I'd actually like them more worn, but I can take care of that after I get them!

The Pumpkin Patch

From one pumpkin to another!!!!!!! A woman was asked by a coworker, "What is it like to be a Christian?" The coworker replied, "It is like being a pumpkin." God picks you from the patch, brings you in, and washes all the dirt off of you. Then He cuts off the top and scoops out all the yucky stuff. He removes the seeds of doubt, hate, and greed. Then He carves you a new smiling face and puts His light inside of you to shine for all the world to see."
This was passed on to me by another pumpkin. Now it's your turn to pass it to other pumpkins.
