This story really made good sense to me so I am sharing it. It was anonymous.

A boy and his father were driving down a country road on a beautiful spring afternoon when a bumblebee flew in the car window.
The little boy, who was allergic to bee stings, was petrified.
The father quickly reached out, grabbed the bee, squeezed it in his hand, and then released it.
The little boy grew frantic as it buzzed by him.
Once again the father reached out his hand, but this time he pointed to his palm. There stuck to his skin, was the stinger of the bee.
"Do you see this?"he asked. "You don't need to be afraid anymore. I've taken the sting for you."

We Christians do not need to fear death anymore; Christ has died and rose again.
He has taken the sting from death (I Cor. 15: 55-58).

We had a wonderful week of melting snow. The piles were dirty but oh, the snow was going down a little every day.

BUT, Sunday at 11 am, it began to snow and by Monday afternoon there was a new pile out in front of our house, 12 inches !!! It's still there but we are promised more tomorrow, goody, goody, more to get the snow blower out for and more to hunt for the car and get it prresentable again.

You know the joke about the couple deciding what to do with the car every morning after snow. The radio told them when and where to park the car every day, and after moving it back and forth on the street every night, the wife said, " Why don't you just park it in the garage?"

Lucky people. We don't have a garage so every morning after a snow we have to first find our white car, and then Dean clears the snow, but then the car usually just sits in the driveway and waits for the next snow!!!

Isn't Wisconsin wonderful!!!

Since I am almost deaf I watch almost everything on television by closed captions, so tonight watching a news program I saw the words Trip Polly.
I sat there trying to understand who or what was Trip Polly.
That is where the hearty laugh started, the word was Tripoli.

Now you can laugh,

Well this week so far started last Thursday.
Our grandson, wife, and precious little one-year-old son, drove up from Minnesota, to visit us and we had a great time with them.
We took them to eat at our favorite restaurant, in fact no. 1 in our town. The little cutie was talking to other diners while running around the tables. He was so well behaved the diners were enjoying him, and he is so cute.

I try not to post any pix of little kids on the internet so his pix is not here, you will have to take my word for it, he is a precious little guy, and all boy.
Grandson Russell told me it is dangerous to put kids' pix on blogs and he is an attorney and knows what can and has happened with them, so I trust him.

Saturday, the kids had a party for our grandson's leaving for the army. It may be Air Force as he is going to school for helicopter maintenance. I hate to see him leaving his little family but he has wanted to serve in the military sometime so I am proud to see him begin and I think he has chosen wisely what to do.
In World War II Dean and I were separated almost a year when he was in Germany so I know we must pray for him and his family, for it isn't easy for any of them. God will take care of him when we all send our concerns to Him and trust Him with them.

So, now we pray for peace more than ever and to come sooner and all these brave men finish their tour, and return to life with their loved ones.
