About Me

I am a crazy woman, funny and carefree but type A and anal all at the same time. I have two daughters and a Father who's a King...what more do I need?! My goal on this planet is to help His bride: literally (I plan weddings for a living!) and spiritually (I occasionally offer words of wisdom to loved ones...) Bless us all on this journey!

Wait...What's a Cubit?!


By this time yesterday I was ready to take up Ark-building. If you're in northwest Indiana right now you were probably contemplating the same thing sometime this past weekend! I'll post pics in the next day or so, but to give you an example of how much rain was in my backyard: there's a drainage ditch that runs along the north side of my property that usually trickles pleasantly by, that the girls and I occasionally walk alongside in the summer time looking for tadpoles. Yesterday it was raging by our houses like the Amazon...to the point that my neighbor girlfriend's teenage boys put their BOAT in it. Dave came to pick up the girls for the afternoon and questioned, "Anyone see any animals marching two by two?" Apparently not; no one could figure out how to build the Ark after all and as a result, the kids don't even have school today. Can anyone remember northwest Indiana schools being shut down for FLOODING?!

Been here all 42 years of my life and have to say a big NOPE to your question. Schools have never been closed for flooding and I have never seen anything like that here before. And 2 men died in Chesterton due to the flooding...SOO sad.

That's crazy! Especially for Indiana...where's the church pic?

Yes, it has certainly been crazy here. We had our own creek in our backyard (and there isn't supposed to be!). We definitely could have rowed a canoe down the middle of the yard. By the way, I use to know what a cubit was! Not that I remember anymore, but in middle school we had to build a detailed model of the old testament tabernacle to scale.....Man, was that a crazy project!!!
