Do you iphone?

My phone is falling apart! Really, it is no longer a flip phone, it's a flop phone - rarely can I get it to stay closed!
I know a few people who have and love the iphone. I don't have the money for it right now - but if I can hold out on getting a new phone - tell me, is the iphone worth it? If not, why? If so - what is the best thing about it?

Tears . . . .

Tears, I shead them easily. My grandmother has always said that my tear ducts are close to the surface. I cry when I'm sad, when I'm happy, when I'm mad, really, when I feel any emotion strongly. I wish I could control it better than I can. I simply can't stop them if they decide to come. Believe me, I've tried. All. My. Life.
My Dad always hated my tears. He'd get so MAD when he saw them. He'd tell me to quit, or else! I'd try . . . . .
Luckily, HWH isn't bothered by them. After 17 years, he's quite used to them. My 14 yr. old son doesn't get them, and can be embarrased by them.
Hey, my dental hygenist says I make a lot of spit. Perhaps, all those water making functions are just very active in my body!?

Preparing for St. Vincent

Well, only about 11 days till we leave for St. Vincent! While there our Teen Group will host two Youth Rallies where they'll play games with area kids and then the gospel will be spread. We'll spend a week teaching VBS to the area kids as well. It's going to be lots of fun! I'm told it will be very hot, full of mosquitoes, no air-conditioning, and tiring - but we are all excited about going and meeting new people and sharing our love of Jesus!
Now, the challenge is packing all that we need in one suitcase that weighs 50 pounds or less! Any suggestions???

One of My Favorite New Websites . . . .

The Intentional Home is one of my favorite new websites. If you live in the triangle area of NC - go take one of her classes as soon as you can. I now save at least 50% on my grocery shopping each month! Su has a heart for women, their households and God. Her heart has been a blessing in my life!
