I have some AWESOME news!!

This past Saturday, my husband and I went to a couples conference, and it was AWESOME!! We watched it via satellite, but it was still awesome!! The speakers were Gary Smalley, Ted Cunningham, Kim McManus, Erwin McManus, Les Parrott and Henry Cloud. And while we were there, I picked up the book, "The Language of Sex" by Ted Cunningham and Gary Smalley, and I started reading it and I couldn't put it down. I recommend this book for couples and couples to be. We were there all day, but I truly had a wonderful, enlightening day. Allen and I talked about it the whole way home, and I think this book gives you such an awesome biblical outlook on marriage and sex. So, if you are interested in getting a book that you and your husband can enjoy and read together, this is the one!!

Have a blessed day!!

Cross In My Pocket
I carry a cross in my pocket
A simple reminder to me
Of the fact that I am a Christian
No matter where I may be.

This little cross is not magic
Nor is it a good luck charm
It isn't meant to protect me
From every physical harm.

It's not for identification
For all the world to see
It's simply an understanding
Between my Savior and me.

When I put my hand in my pocket
To bring out a coin or key
The cross is there to remind me
Of the price He paid for me.

It reminds me, too, to be thankful
For my blessings day by day
And to strive to serve Him better
In all that I do and say.

It's also a daily reminder
Of the peace and comfort I share
With all who know my master
And give themselves to His care.

So, I carry a cross in my pocket
Reminding no one but me
That Jesus Christ is Lord of my life
If only I'll let Him be.
