Wow Bon!! How true is all of this, huh? It is amazing how our taxes didn't go down as much as our home value did! Very good perspective wouldn't you say?

Love to you!! Have a joyful Sunday sweetie!

Hi Bonnnnie!

Oh my gosh.....I've had you on my mind for two days! I went to bed thinking about you last night....I was blogging and realized I hadn't been over to visit you for a long time.....but I COULD NOT remember the name of your blog and it wasn't on my list........I'm going to rectify that ASAP.... And then TaDa....there's a message from YOU!

Yep.....I agree....Our taxes went UP and our property value went DOWN. How does that work? :-)

Have a wonderful day.....

Hi Bonnie,
That was so funny, but would only be funnier if it weren't so darn true!
You sure hit the nail on the head,
yea, I was wondering too, how is it our property taxes are not going down since the value of our home sure has!
Who makes these rules anyway!!
Certainly not us!
That pic of the cornicopia is absolutely gorgeous. Looks like it is made of tile.
Thanks for coming by today and for your prayers. Will find out on Monday or Tuesday when they are scheduling Jim's stress test.
I, like you wonder why anyone would want to do life without the Lord. It is a puzzle to me, cause my life has never been better, and I owe it all to Him! and it is
scary things like health issues that really help you put things into perspective and calms those fears. We may not know what the future holds, but we do know who
holds our future! And I am most
Thankful for that!
Seems the older you get the more you see how much we need the Lord and how much more we have to pray to Him about.
Hence, the praying without ceasing
as the bible talks about, cause we live in a pretty broken, messed up world especially these days.
He is definitely the only one who keeps me sane, peaceful and joyful!
Have a good week hon,
Love and Blessings,
Yea, it is so neat that Beck and I are such good friends. She is a very neat and encouraging gal!
And a real blessing to all who know her!

This was an e-mail someone send me. Too funny and too sad.
