You know someday I want to marry, but as a good friend put, "Jocelin, there aren't many men out there like your dad, so I don't know if you will find one like him." Well, Yahweh, I'm holding out for the "younger version of my Daddy!"

On top of all that, I've also finished up a website. Please check out the Abilene Torah Group's website at www.abilenetorahgroup.com.
Yesterday, we had a Neurologist visit for Gaga. He confirmed that his official diagnosis is "Mulit InFarct Dementia" which means that his memory loss is caused by mini-strokes and has a very slow progression compared to Alzheimer's. This is why he's still considered "functioning" after a 12 year long diagnosis. It helps to understand a bit more what causes this memory loss and why certain pieces (such as all sense of time and self control) are gone...yet others (such as math skills) are still here. Please continue to pray as we deal with this day in and day out.

Walking by Faith is not easy
the Father didn't promise a life of leisure
only that He would always be with me.
Walking by Faith can be a test
people can be a pain
but my Father's faithfulness knows no end.
Walking by Faith can mean a dark journey at times
with the wind and rain buffetting me
but the Father's cloak keeps me dry and His candle lights my path.
Walking by faith can mean being alone
with the world against me
but with the Father on my side, I'll win, and I'm never alone!
Walking by faith is worth it!
"He'll never leave me nor forsake me!"

An Excerpt from
by Dan Green
It was a perfect day for surfing off the coast of Maui. A 13 year old surfing protege had just finished riding a twenty foot wave and was lying face down on her surf board. Preparing to paddle out to catch another wave, her thoughts of becoming a professional surfer shifted in an instant. Without warning, she felt a tug on her left arm and in a split second she realized that she'd been attacked by a shark.
As she struggled to gain her composure she realized something even more horrifying ? the fourteen foot tiger shark had bitten clean through her board, taking her left arm in a single bite. At that moment in time, survival and not surfing became a priority.
Bethany Hamilton learned to surf at the age of 4. When she was 8, she entered her first contest and won both of the events that she competed in. At the age of 10 she placed 1st in the "11-under girls," 1st in the "15-under girls," and 2nd in the "12-under boys" division at the Volcom Puffer Fish contest. She was determined to become a professional surfer and was certainly on track to make it happen. Then, in one violently swift moment on that fall day in 2003, it seemed her dreams would be shattered.
However, Bethany was born with the heart of a lion and the competitive spirit of a thoroughbred. She was determined to return to the water to surf. Leaning on support from her friends, family and her faith in God, Bethany recovered rapidly and within ten weeks from the attack was surfing again. Convinced she could overcome her physical challenge, she worked hard to learn to surf around her disability. But she also had to overcome the psychological fear of another attack. Bethany would face her fears by singing and praying when she was out on the water.
Incredible as it seems, less than a year from her attack, Bethany returned to competition taking first place at the National Surfing Championships and first place at the first event for the Hawaii National Scholastic Surfing Association. She was recognized by ESPN in 2004 and received an ESPY award for Best Comeback Athlete of the year.
Bethany's ability to overcome her physical and mental challenges puts her in an elite class of achievers. She chose to...Finish Strong.
Will I Finish Strong for the King of Kings - YHVH Himself?

Yesterday, I spent the day reformatting my entire computer. Since I work on the computer full time as well as design websites, I have to do that about once a year. It definitely makes the computer run much better. I've got everything back up and running once again which is great. I got an external hard drive from work which made backing things up much easier and able to verify that I had everything a lot quicker. We also watched a video as a family about the Sabbath and Shavuot...which was very interesting.
Then today, I've been working quite heartily and catching up on things since being out for a long weekend. It's amazing what one extra day to the weekend does! :) So now, I'm logging off to go enjoy some Momma time and hopefully a walk when it cools off.
