Smoke Signal ..

(Got this in an email today,, thought i'd share it here. Thanks honey)

The only survivor of a shipwreck was washed up on a small, uninhabited island. He prayed feverishly for God to rescue him. Every day he scanned the horizon for help, but none seemed forthcoming. Exhausted, he eventually managed to build a little hut out of driftwood to protect him from the elements, and to store his few possessions.
One day, after scavenging for food, he arrived home to find his lit tle hut in flames, with smoke rolling up to the sky. He felt the worst had happened, and everything was lost. He was stunned with disbelief, grief, and anger.. He cried out, 'God! How could you do this to me?'
Early the next day, he was awakened by the sound of a ship approaching the island! It had come to rescue him! 'How did you know I was here?' asked the weary man of his rescuers. 'We saw your smoke signal,' they replied.

The Moral of This Story:It's easy to get discouraged when things are going bad, but we shouldn't lose heart, because God is at work in our lives, even in the midst of our pain and suffering.

Remember that the next time your little hut seems to be burning to the ground, it just may be a smoke signal that summons the Grace of God.

P.S. Please pass this on because you never know who feels as if their hut is on fire today

Birthday Greetings

Happy Birthday Rowdy !!

Rowdy is Amberly's boyfriend and today is his special day. Hope you have a great one.

Sign your name .. Hang it high

When the kids were little and we were going to birthday partys for cousins and neices and nephews all the time we got in the habit of signing the card ... The Mann Clan...just cause it was easier than signing 5 names to the bottom of the card ... mainly because it was usually last minute and done ,, in the car... on the way to the party.. Anyway,, so i've been wanting to make us a sign with our name on it.. I thought about doing the usual ,, (Mann,, est. 1987,,) but decided to do our usual signature .. The Mann Clan.

Used just a "scrap" piece of wood, printed the letters out in Microsoft word, size 400, cut them out and decoupaged onto the board. And voila,, this is how it turned out.

Is it perfect? NO.. Will you be able to see flaws if you enlarge the picture? PROBABLY ... Do I care? NO,, Because as a this blogger says,, It Doesnt Have to be Perfect to be Beautiful !! And it'll be hangin high in the living room and noone will notice . Have a great weekend everyone!

Gotta go back, back, back to school,, WooHoo!

Tyler starts 9th grade tomorrow,, sooo hard to believe.. We went and got his schedule tonight. I hope he stays focused and studies and does good this year.


Many of us have kids that are going back to school tomorrow or next week.. Please be in prayer for all of our kids that they''ll have a successful and safe 2009-'10 school year. And pray for the teachers and staff that have the responsiblity and honor to teach them. It's not a job, its a calling, and it's not easy.

( Melanie, Jeff, Tyler & Amberly at Bradley wedding)

And now they are one,,,

Congratulations Bradley & Mallory
